Carolina gets blown out twice a year under Ron Rivera

Yesterday, 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....?)


Some love for Jason Avant

15 September 2014 - 11:58 AM

I was really impressed by Jason Avant's play on Sunday.  The TD catch was thrown high but Avant made a great catch, then later he made another great catch on 3rd down in the 4th Quarter.  

 

I'm going to post this again:

 


Date I recently went on...

27 August 2014 - 10:11 AM

The following is a true story I thought I'd share.  Back in January I came out of a three year relationship and I've been enjoying my single life by indulging in dating apps like Tinder.  I'm not too into dating on Tinder for well, reasons just like this story, but occasionally a girl piques my interest enough to go on a date with her.  I'll never forget this girl.

 

We chatted through the app and via text and she seemed normal, fairly cute, and interesting. She was studying at the local university and had a side job as a bartender at a music venue I liked.  Offers to get me into shows for free and for free drinks really swayed me to go out with her.  So after talking for about a week we finally decide to meet.  First off, she had a weird accent. I didn't want to draw attention to it because it could have been a sensitive topic so I waited for her to bring it up. We had a few drinks and a good conversation. We seemed to have a lot in common.
 
Everything was going fine and as the night starts to wind down I go get us one more set of drinks before last call. It's like this girl flipped a switch when I get back...immediately when I sit down she says "So I have a confession to make" and I'm thinking "Oh God...." Long story short, she's from Ireland (explains the accent) and she's on a student visa that is about to expire. She's on Tinder looking for a man to marry to gain citizenship.  Apparently her home life in Ireland is less than to be desired and she has no interest in going back.  She offered me money (won't say how much but it wasn't enough) to marry her. All I said to her was "After one date?" to which she replied "My visa expires in 4 days. I need this to happen now."
 
I got up and left without saying anything.  This girl was crazy. She said we could have sex that night any way I wanted, then she'd pay me if we'd go to the courthouse the next day.  I won't lie, it was tempting, but I hope no poor sap fell for that.  
 
tl;dr - had an Irish Tinder date proposition me for marriage for citizenship

Surprising, but I guess the Bears are used to taking former Panthers and getting some use out of them...


Out of market Huddlers - how are you watching the Panthes games this year?

21 August 2014 - 12:19 PM

I've been in Texas for three years now so I've done some maneuvering to watch the Panthers in Cowboys/Texans territory.  In 2011 I went to bars and streamed the games online.  It got kinda frustrating at times because the stream wasn't always that good and going to a bar isn't always what I wanted to do when I'm hungover and my friends are too hungover to come with me haha.

 

In 2012 I bought Sunday Ticket for the PS3 which worked out well.  It was a generally high quality stream and the game was available unless the Panthers were in primetime or were playing a Texas team.  In 2013 you could buy Madden 25 for $100 and get NFL Sunday Ticket for mobile and computer.  I bought that in a heartbeat and watched the games on my computer hooked up to my TV.  Solid choice all year.  

 

This year I'm not sure what I'm going to do.  I tried to buy Sunday Ticket for the PS3 again (which I heard was going to be available) but it's not.  I'm wondering if DirecTV is just waiting until the last possible minute to offer it for the PS3 to get as many people as possible to register for their subscription instead of just buying Sunday Ticket on the Playstation.  If they don't I might be hitting up the bars again...
