#3004526 Tricky situation with my roommate and his GF

Posted by hepcat on 07 October 2014 - 02:45 PM

No I agree... normally I would advise you stay out of it, but since it will affect you and since they both confided in you their plans, I think you need to tell the guy if he's gonna break up with her, he needs to go ahead do it, both to keep her from making a fool of herself/wasting a trip and to take you out of a weird situation.


Yea, talking to him seems like the much better option.  I'm not really spilling too big of a secret by telling him she was planning to surprise him on his tour.  That won't kick up too much poo.  But if I told her he was thinking about breaking up with her, that could really explode into a huge situation....

#3004467 Greg Cosell's Week 5 analysis: Cam Newton's improvement is clear

Posted by hepcat on 07 October 2014 - 02:09 PM

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Cam Newton is the LEAST of the Panthers worries.  Why the media continues to question him is beyond me.  There's so many other better stories to write.  He's easily one of the most consistent players on the team.  Once he finally gets healthy and heaven forbid gets a decent O-Line in front of him and healthy RBs behind him, look out.  His WRs are decent and he's got one of the best TE's in the game.  Anyone who questions his weapons is sorely misinformed.  

#3004465 Beat the Bengals....the formula that appears to work

Posted by hepcat on 07 October 2014 - 02:04 PM

The offense and especially the QB is not the problem for the Panthers.  It's all about the defense. When the defense shows up, the Panthers tend to win, or at least find themselves in the game at the end.  If the Panthers D can slow down the Bengals running attack and get some sacks on Dalton, the Panthers have a good chance at a W.  If Bernard has a big game, it won't even be close.  


I'm really worried about this game...because the Bengals will be looking to bounce back after being embarrassed by the Patriots and face an inconsistent Panthers team in their house.  Panthers coming off a comeback win at home and having to go on the road, while the Bengals are looking to prove their game against the Patriots was a fluke.  


Which team is the real Panthers?  The one that got blown out by the Steelers and Ravens?  Or the one that shut down Detroit and came back from 14 down against Chicago?  We will know a lot more about what kind of team the Panthers have after this game.  

#3003147 Need to go at least 6-5 the rest of the way to go 9-7 & possibly win NFCS...

this board is so damn bi-polar.


so fuging true.  there was a point in the game against the Bears where I actually wondered if we'd win another game this season.  then we won the game.  Better to just say nothing!

Why don't all the guys just start a photo collage and the women can play "guess which belongs to whom"

have you ever wanted to pee your pants so bad that you poo yourself?  that is how i feel about this thread

#2988951 What do you wear to a lunch interview?

Posted by hepcat on 29 September 2014 - 04:38 PM

short-sleeved gingham shirts are popular.  definitely don't skimp on the shoes (stylish shoes tie an outfit together) and wear pants that fit.  You might get a bunch of nice clothes but it's way too baggy and you look like an idiot who still can't dress yourself.  

#2974871 A little Cam Newton praise....

Posted by hepcat on 23 September 2014 - 12:10 PM

I cringe when I see those stats about Cam being hit more than twice as much as the second most QB. And Sunday night proved it has little to do with his playing style.


Anderson got sacked once against Tampa.  So can you really pin this on the O-Line?  I know Tampa's pass rush isn't that great but they had Gerald McCoy that game and are they really that much worse than the Steelers D-Line? Compared to Cam, Anderson has seemed quicker and more decisive with his throws which reduces hits and sacks.  Cam missed a lot of practice time with his ankle surgery and rib injury.  Anderson got the reps with the first team and it's showed so far during the games.


Edit - not that Cam hasn't played well, but he definitely holds the ball longer than Anderson, which leads to more hits.

#2973806 So... About that extra day off for veterans...

Posted by hepcat on 22 September 2014 - 06:32 PM

I mean ignoring the 900lb gorilla in the room...maybe that extra rest for veterans had something to do with the poor performance too

Anyone know if Brian St. Pierre is available for the game?

#2973238 huddle opinion..what direction to go in with offense

Posted by hepcat on 22 September 2014 - 02:05 PM

There's absolutely no solution to these problems when a three man pass rush results in a sack/fumble.  Embarrassing game all around.  Panthers looked like a DIII school.

#2972613 Carolina gets blown out twice a year under Ron Rivera

Posted by hepcat on 22 September 2014 - 10:22 AM

2011: vs. Titans (3-30), @ Saints (17-45)

2012: vs. Giants (7-36), vs. Broncos (14-36)

2013: @ Cardinals (6-22), @ Saints (13-31)

2014: vs. Steelers (19-37), ?


The trend so far has been one blowout early in the year, and one late in the year.  After every blowout early in the year, the Panthers have rebounded to play a much better game, but didn't win following a blowout until 2013 (vs. Rams after being blown out @ Cardinals).  


It will be interesting to see how the Panthers respond after this blowout.  Sure, they got blown out, but it wasn't like they were outclassed by the Steelers.  They were due for a bad game after a long run of really great games.  This just follows the trend and it's better to have this happen and be 2-1 than 0-3.  The future is still bright, but I hope the Panthers can recover and win a big road test against Steve Smith and the Ravens (who the hell thought I'd be saying that last year....?)

Tampa Bay sucks, there's no way around it.  Might be the worst team in the NFL.
