#2167371 Ladies (and guys looking for gifts for their ladies)...my GF just started her...

Posted by hepcat on 19 March 2013 - 11:33 AM

I was going to buy something for my girlfriend and then I saw the price for a necklace. Very nice work though I will definetly buy won inbthe future but money is tight right now.

That's the price of handmade stuff...she spends 12+ hours on one piece sometimes. The earrings are more economically priced though.

#2146590 Greg Olsen speaking to state government

Posted by hepcat on 27 February 2013 - 02:44 PM

My only question is would this be one of those wonderful medical tests that seems so simple yet costs hundreds of dollars?

But it's nice to see that there is more to Greg than the dumb jock stereotype. Good for him to stand up for something he believes in and shame on the huddle for ruining a nice thread.

They said at the end of the video that one test costs $5.

#2145268 So it's the offseason - Is Jimmy Clausen's career salvageable?

Posted by hepcat on 26 February 2013 - 01:15 PM


Also, this may need to be reviewed by a mod for potential banishment from the Huddle. Using Steve Young!?! in a Clausen comparison?

Haha! You can compare the first couple years of Steve Young's career to Jimmy Clausen...because they are similar. They were both on terrible teams and performed terribly.

I'm just saying, Young was in an awful situation but was traded into a better one that revived a seemingly dead career. Could the same happen to Clausen?

#2114314 Vernon Davis Insults Steve Smith

Steve Smith has individually won more games for the Panthers because of his play, than Vernon Davis has even played in the NFL.

#2114225 panthers were offering coaching candidates 1 year deals...

Posted by hepcat on 25 January 2013 - 10:34 AM

I'm not surprised by that...everyone knows Rivera is in a make or break year. The fact that no one wanted to come and rot in Carolina for one year is pretty self-explanatory. Hell we could see some of the same names surface next year when (but hopefully if) the entire coaching staff gets replaced.

#2113526 Manti Te'o lied about his Girlfriend dying

Posted by hepcat on 24 January 2013 - 05:37 PM

Manti is gay and made this girl up to throw off suspicion. End of story. Case closed.

I've been saying this since the story came out but it doesn't seem like people can put the pieces together...it's so obvious Manti and Roniah were banging each other

#2111856 Manti Te'o lied about his Girlfriend dying

Posted by hepcat on 23 January 2013 - 12:15 PM

I can't believe people are so blind to this. When is someone going to ask him if he's gay? It's the classic story of a closeted gay man making up the out of town girlfriend to get some suspicious people off his back. You can't be openly gay and win the Heisman, or be an NFL star. That's at the root of this whole story.

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he and Roniah Tuiasosopo were lovers and came up with this story together to hide their relationship. It's the only reasonable explanation to this bizarre story.

#2111750 Rivera talked to (wanted?) Norv

Posted by hepcat on 23 January 2013 - 10:43 AM

Yea, the Chud hire makes a lot more sense when you factor in Norv as OC. I bet he went into that interview saying "If you hire me as HC, I'll bring Norv Turner as my OC". Hell, it worked. Can't blame him.

#2103289 Shula promoted to OC

Posted by hepcat on 18 January 2013 - 04:40 PM

With only subtractions made to the coaching staff...and with the cap situation the way it is...the Panthers might really struggle next year. Panthers are one Cam Newton injury away from being 0-16.

#2096061 Jake Delhomme's Life After the NFL

Posted by hepcat on 14 January 2013 - 10:25 AM

Nothing but love for Jake D. Met the guy once at a dinner when he was in his heyday...signed a Panthers towel for me. Really nice guy, strong Cajun accent, bigger dude in person that I expected.

#2087587 Everytime the Panthers clean house. They end up with the first overall pick.

Posted by hepcat on 10 January 2013 - 12:57 AM

everytime we don't clean up with get the first pick?

every time the panthers end up with the first pick, they clean house. the dudes they fire literally come over and clean my house

#2087410 Something that has been overlooked that I hope Gettleman notices.

Posted by hepcat on 09 January 2013 - 11:29 PM

Dating back as far as 2004 to my memory, the Panthers seem to end the season with an exorbitant number of players on injured reserve.

2004 - 14 players
2005 - 10 players
2006 - 13 players
2007 - 12 players
2008 - 5 players
2009 - 12 players
2010 - 15 players
2011 - 18 players
2012 - 15 players

(source - Carolina Panthers Wikipedia)

Injuries are a part of the game in the NFL, that's a given. But finishing with a double digit number of players on injured reserve 8 out of the past 9 seasons is more than just bad luck. There's something wrong. Is it the training staff? Is it scouting? Is it coaching? Is it the field? Does having a black cat as a mascot mean the team is forever doomed to have bad luck?

Or is this just life in the NFL - a notoriously violent sport where every player has spent time on the injury list. How do other teams stack up against these numbers? I'd appreciate it if someone could dig up some comparative research.

Just judging by the numbers, it seems like the Panthers are one of the most chronically injured teams in the NFL over the past decade. I hope the new GM at least notices this and can try something different than what was done under Marty Hurney.

#2068090 Deangelo

Posted by hepcat on 30 December 2012 - 05:11 PM

The 2012 Saints defense allowed more yards than any defense in the history of the NFL. I don't need any more explanation of why Deangelo Williams had such a big game.

#2063634 Should Rivera be kept as D coordinator

Posted by hepcat on 27 December 2012 - 11:47 AM

Of course, but has a head coach ever been the coordinator for the team he was coaching the year before? Doubtful.

I was about to ask the same question...has that happened on any team ever?
