#3105733 Jo-Juh-Jo-Juh-Jo-Juh-Josh Norman

Posted by fieryprophet on 26 November 2014 - 01:00 PM

There's a lot of revisionist history going on right now. Norman has been on the fan's sh*t list for ages and his numerous early mistakes were a source of frustration for everyone. Now that he's playing within the system and doing what he's supposed to do, and seeing the commensurate playing time, everyone's acting as if the coaching staff left him on the bench for the hell of it. It's been true as long as football has been played: you don't play within the scheme, you don't see the field. I'm very happy to see his improvement but I'm not going to pretend that he shouldn't have figured out what it took to play a LONG time ago.

That it's a game and despite all our frustration we have pieces for a bright future.


#3100326 Spending $13.1 million

Posted by fieryprophet on 21 November 2014 - 09:19 PM

Of course, but are they not all players worthy of a multi-year commitment? Why are we suddenly restricting ourselves to 1 or 2 year deals?

The key is signing the right people at the right price.


I agree but we are avoiding multiyear deals specifically to create the cap space necessary to sign our QB and MLB to long term deals.


#3100194 Spending $13.1 million

You can't look at just the 2014 cap hit. Hardy was a rental specifically because he cost nothing after 2014. All of those players would command even more in future seasons.


#3098082 Cam's twitter was hacked because his password was "Camnewton1"

Posted by fieryprophet on 19 November 2014 - 11:55 PM

Oh lawd. . .

Cam just needs to stay away from computers, they obviously are trouble for him.


#3081198 IR Cam

Posted by fieryprophet on 11 November 2014 - 10:34 AM

And when Cam ends the season with an ACL tear or a dislocated shoulder.... was it worth it?

 

That can happen walking down stairs. I don't wish any injury whatsoever on Cam but nobody gets through football scot-free. Part of the job requirements of a franchise quarterback is to be on the field when you can physically make it and to fight alongside your teammates no matter how dire the circumstances. And I don't believe it's in Cam's makeup (thankfully) to want to be sheltered, even for his own sake.




#3081131 IR Cam

Posted by fieryprophet on 11 November 2014 - 10:19 AM

I disagree. David Carr failed because David Carr sucked. Cam has to progress in his decision-making and that requires live action. As defeated as he might feel at the moment you never progress by avoiding trials but by embracing the challenge. The biggest enemy Cam has is his distaste for failure and the disengagement that follows. Enabling that through IR only exacerbates the problem.


#3080955 They Gambled. They Lost. It's That Simple.

Posted by fieryprophet on 11 November 2014 - 09:11 AM

Everyone wants to find effigies to burn and jobs to be lost and players to be cut and rabble, rabble, rabble.

 

It boils down to one very simple reality: the front office (assign blame between coaches and GM as you wish) lacked the fiscal resources to address all areas of need and decided that the offensive line could hold up if necessary. It was a fatal gamble and they lost. There aren't any real schematic answers that fit with the offensive roster we currently have: we lack the offensive line to establish the running game and play action schemes our core philosophy is built around and other, less line-intensive schemes such as a dink-and-dunk WCO are entirely unsuited to the receiving corps we have.

 

So keep in mind between all of your hell-raising that before amputating every limb off the patient one should wonder if their broken ankle might be the cause that keeps them from walking.




#3074826 3-4 next year anyone?

Posted by fieryprophet on 09 November 2014 - 09:24 PM

Oh my god, when will people realize there's a hell of a lot more to a 3-4 than simple alignments.


#3059485 What is going on? Cam's QB rating keeps getting worse this season: 100.2,...

Posted by fieryprophet on 30 October 2014 - 10:56 PM

Offensive line has been going downhill the entire time too.

Coincidence?


#3059121 It's Over

Posted by fieryprophet on 30 October 2014 - 10:23 PM

No playoffs, losing season, 13million to Hardy for nothing. Get to watch the Saints in their dome in the playoffs. Hell, they'll probably run the tables and play Manning in the SB again.

Die in a fire.


#3058923 Cam is high

Posted by fieryprophet on 30 October 2014 - 10:11 PM

Brees just threw a perfect pass with a lineman right against his torso.

Stop the excuses.


The only excuse is this joke of a fanbase.


#3052987 David Foucault Starting at Left Tackle

Posted by fieryprophet on 29 October 2014 - 12:26 PM

I am praying this ends well, but I seriously doubt it will end in anything but disaster.




#3049108 Cam's first-down celebrations really bother a lot of people. Why?

Posted by fieryprophet on 27 October 2014 - 02:37 PM

People are dumb. Dumb people think dumb things and come to dumb conclusions.


#3048025 Most troubling phrase yesterday....

Posted by fieryprophet on 27 October 2014 - 08:10 AM

Rivera wasn't given the choice for a better player. And Foucalt is not remotely ready. Ugh.
