#3007008 J.J. Watt or Luke Kuechly

Posted by gakonline on 09 October 2014 - 09:44 AM

MLB is the QB of the defense. The MLB is involved in every play. You can run away from the DE. It the DE job to maintain containment on his side.

Although Watt is playing at a higher level right now Luke is making far more plays and will continue because Luke is the best at his position.

You have to go with Luke and any other team would do the same.

My guess is the Texans would trade Watt for Luke today if one was offered.

Would everyone please quit whining about Steve Smith being let go.  It is part of football.  He is going to be 35 no longer has the speed to get separation.  If he was 6-3 and 210 there would be no question that he would be on the roster.  I wish he was still here and would have rather seen him retire but we have to go with young blood to build around Cam.  Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice were both let go from there teams.  Anyone heard of them.  Quit whining and get ready for the future.

#2574660 How many Panther fans were there by percentage?

Posted by gakonline on 30 December 2013 - 12:44 AM

40% maybe a little high.  Lots of panther fans in the stand but to my surprise there a lot of falcon fans there still supporting their team.  The panthers fans were very loud at times and felt it really pumped up the players.  


I thought tickets were actually going to be easier to come by.  I got three individual seats in the lower section.  Payed a little less than face.  My son was on crutches so when I took him to his seat a guy in the next row up offered me the seat next to him so I could sit close to my son.  I gave my wife that seat and eventually got to sit with them after the first quarter.  


This was my first trip to the dome and have to say all the Atlanta Fans we met were very nice.  We actually got invited to come down to a Super Bowl party.  We met some really cool panther fans as well.  


I have to give props to my son.  He had knee surgery just four weeks ago and we walked everywhere with no complaints.  This was a super fun road trip and we plan on going to another opposing stadium next year.

#2530496 Panthers heavily picked to lose by NFL "experts"

Posted by gakonline on 06 December 2013 - 12:16 PM

Buddy of mine told me Sunday he saw 2:3 talkin heads had picked Tampa. "Fug yeah.." was my response, let the naysayers naysay...

I forgot which show it was, but I saw it too. They were talking up Tampa's run game, Glennon and their three game winning streak. Also said their defense was playing at a high level. Made no mention of the Panthers 7 game winning streak and having the #1 defense. I was like what the fug, we are going to stomp their ass.

Speaking of Glennon, my family was at the game and my wife asked who was the goofy, spastic QB for Tampa. I told her he was Mike Glennon from NC State, is 6"7 and a decent QB. She said, "Well, he still looks goofy." The next play he threw the ball backwards and she said, "I told you he was spastic." and that pretty much summed up the rest of the game for the Bucs.

For some reason none of the Analysts are buying into the Panthers and will continue to put us as the underdog for the rest of the season. Which is fine by me. Love watching them eat crow.

If Ginn catches the bomb thrown to him earlier that play is irrelevant anyway.

#2471696 cam newton at levine children's hospital

Posted by gakonline on 07 November 2013 - 10:24 AM

Football and basketball. First was freak accident since he hit a goal post, at least that is what I thought. After seeing the video of how he got tackled 4 weeks ago I just think he had weak ACL's. He got tackled high while his left foot was planted. I guess it twisted just enough to pop. Both MRI's looked exactly the same. Clean tear in both knee's. Luckily we found a type of surgery that by passes the growth plates using an IT Band Graft. He had to have surgery in Boston 2 years ago and we found a Dr. at Levine's that does the same type of surgery and was a fellow of the Dr. in Boston. She just moved to Charlotte within the last year and glad we only have to travel 1 1/2 hours instead of spending the week in Boston.

His right knee is stronger than ever and we will get his left knee just as strong. He will be ready for basketball next year and will play football again in two years.

My son is going to be at Levine's on Dec. 2nd for ACL surgery on his left knee. He is 10 and will be his second ACL surgery. He tore is right ACL 2 years ago. Injured right knee at practice getting pushed into the goal post and tore his left knee 4 weeks ago getting tackled during a game.

We are going to Bucs game on Dec. 1st and spending the night in Charlotte before his surgery. I am going to try to contact the Panthers to see if my son can meet some of the players. Would like for him to meet TD to give my son some encouragement.

#2108693 One step forward, two steps back. The story of the Carolina Panthers.

Posted by gakonline on 21 January 2013 - 10:59 AM

One reason to be optimistic for next season. Supposedly, Cam does win games when he turns the ball over. We won the last two games against the Raiders and Saints with Cam throwing ints. Both games he came back and put together scoring drives. I think he is finally maturing and this is a big plus.

Throwing picks in those games is a step back but getting things together mentally and pulling out the wins are two steps forward.

Yea they had surgery about the same time. He got the Adrian Peterson McFalen Figure for Christmas. AP is one of his favorite players.

#1999500 Fastest Panthers According to LaFell

Posted by gakonline on 14 November 2012 - 12:08 PM

I always start him over Martin and Naki lol

Yep, same here. He gets the starting nod in Madden and has descent tackling (better than Martin).

OK, never really introduced myself but I am always on the forums (Carolina Panthers) several times a day and have been for the last few years. I rarely post anything but enjoy reading what everyone has on their mind during the good and bad times. Year to year I am always optimistic the Panthers will beat everyone and will make the playoffs until they are mathmatically eliminated.

On a side note I would like to share a video I put together for my son Fletcher. I wanted to post this but thought by introducing myself I could post here without being hounded by the Forum Police because I did not post in the right section.

Fletcher tore his ACL in a freak accident during football practice on Sept. 15, 2011. He was only 8 yrs old at the time. We found Dr. Kocher at Children's Hospital Boston who specializes in Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery Sports Medicine. We flew to Boston for surgery on Dec. 13, 2011. Fletcher endured several months of intensive physical therapy and was released to play sports again in June 2012. After a summer league of basketball and new baby sister being born, he was ready once again to strap on his helmet.

Hope you enjoy the video. There are several pictures at the beginning to set up the story. It was great watching him getter stronger at practice each week. By season end he was the work horse running back and had no fear pounding it up the middle.
