By the way, the Giants, Saints** and Packers all lost their home openers, while Philadelphia and Detroit looked terrible but eked out wins. It happens even to good teams.

#1890269 How Smitty Spent His Saturday

Posted by fieryprophet on 09 September 2012 - 12:13 AM


Panthers' Wide Receiver Steve Smith's pregame ritual is a far cry from his full-time gig on the field. He spent his Saturday in the Bay area rolling up his sleeves for the home team's less fortunate.

Smith volunteers for Samaritan's Feet, a nonprofit organization that provides foot rubs and a pair of shoes to the homeless. Saturday afternoon he took that mission to Clearwater's Metropolitan Ministries.

"This is an opportunity for me to give back, to serve," said the Panthers' All-Pro WR. "And really for me, open the next chapter of my life."

Approximately 650 pairs of shoes were distributed on Saturday. Organizers of the event say the footwear was not just a gift of comfort but a gift of hope as well.

"A lot of these people are coming from the streets. A lot are ex-military coming from overseas," explained Scott Bedrosian of Metropolitan Ministries. "You've got some young people here. You've got people who've lost jobs. They've been beat up; they're down and they're out and no one believes in them. But we do."

#1890009 Great Article on JR and Cam

Posted by fieryprophet on 08 September 2012 - 05:58 PM


Here’s a reason Richardson and his teammates loved Unitas as a player.

“Whatever he called in the huddle you believed was going to work,” says Richardson. “With him, you always thought you could win. And he was tough. I hear these players now say I tweaked my shin or my calf. I never heard him say stuff like that. I don’t know if I ever heard him mention hamstrings or my shoulder hurts.

“I don’t think Cam will be a better leader. He may be an equal leader but I don’t think you can be a better leader than Johnny Unitas was.”

Still learning

Newton is a better runner. Last season he set a record for quarterbacks by rushing for 14 touchdowns. He threw for 4,051 yards, the most ever by a rookie.

“When Cam is out passing I can tell when he’s throwing the ball versus somebody else,” says Richardson. “I can hear. Some time when you’re out there close your eyes or turn your back and guess who’s throwing the ball.”

Just the sound of the ball going through the air?

“Through the air,” says Richardson.

Richardson says that he knew Newton could be special not after studying tape or measuring body fat. He knew when they sat down at Richardson’s house before the 2011 draft.

“He did everything right that day,” Richardson says. “I think Cam might be the kind of person that will always rise to the occasion, whatever it is.’

Newton looked Richardson in the eye, called him Mr. and sir, and sent a handwritten note thanking him for his time.

As a quarterback, “You’ve got to keep in mind he’s still learning,” Richardson says of Newton. “To get back to my friend John when he walked up to the line of scrimmage he knew like that where the ball was going. Cam doesn’t know that yet.”

If the time comes that he does?

“I think because of his physical skills he will be better,” Richardson says.

Richardson adds: “John couldn’t run like Cam. That’s a characteristic Cam has, either you’ve got it or you don’t.”

While we're all complaining about idiots, I'd like to give a special shout-out to the f*cking morons that rearended me today. I got to spend my Friday night in a neck brace at the ER, my neck is still killing me, and my car is a mess. The simple fact that I'm not at fault does little to salve the pain I'll endure having to get their crap insurance companies to cover my damages.

Better than the Redskins legacy of KKK, "racial purity" and being the last team to integrate in the NFL, and even then only because the owner got poked by the feds.

#1887400 Schiano Seems Worried

Posted by fieryprophet on 06 September 2012 - 02:43 PM


Greg Schiano’s meetings with the media aren’t the 20-minute rambling sessions so often conducted but predecessor Raheem Morris.

The new Tampa Bay coach usually keeps things between five and eight minutes and you don’t walk away with a notebook filled with one-liners like you did with Morris. But, every now and then, Schiano will say something pretty profound and insightful.

That’s what happened Thursday when Schiano was asked if Carolina quarterback Cam Newton is more dangerous as a runner or a passer.

“Unfortunately, I think it’s like 50-50,’’ Schiano said. “That’s the problem. If you could load up on one and sacrifice the other …You literally, when he has the ball, you’re playing against another running back. He’s that athletic and that good, which really screws up the math. Defense is all math. It’s getting your troops deployed where the fight is going on. When the guy who takes the snap actually carries the football, you don’t see that much in this league. You see it a lot in college football. It really messes up. All your rules and assumptions have to be tweaked. When you have to tweak your rules and assumptions to stop the run and then you have a guy who is a very potent passer, that’s what makes him as dangerous as he is.’’

#1887316 What are bucs fans saying?

Posted by fieryprophet on 06 September 2012 - 01:50 PM

Yeah right, like I am going to go all the way from Tampa, up to the Carolina's, to clean a roof, LOL
No, posting as who I really am is how I roll, on every forum I post on. I don't hide under assumed names.

All smack talk aside, that's a very easy way to get your identity stolen. Keep on eye on that.Now, back to smack, you Bucs fans would do better to spend your time trying to convert your local fans than talking weak trash up here. You can blame the economy all you want but that hasn't kept us from selling out every game for 13 years, including the woeful 2010 season.

#1887240 Great Article On Cam by Mike Silver

Posted by fieryprophet on 06 September 2012 - 12:50 PM


If you're starting to get the sense that Newton is a tad exacting when evaluating his own efforts, you are not mistaken.

"It's just accountability," Newton says. "You call it what you want to call it. It's downgraded by some people, and it's accepted by a lot more people. If you're a competitor, you won't think twice about your expectations for yourself."

In other words, no one can be harder on Newton than Newton is on himself. "Absolutely," he says. "Absolutely. I think that's in my nature. It's hereditary to a degree. I sit down and watch games with my brother and my father, and we're all critiquing every single play. How could I have made it better? How could I have gotten myself out of a jam?"

Best of all, from the Panthers' perspective, is that Newton's push for perfection is governed by a yearning for organizational success, rather than focused on individual glory.

"The thing I like about Cam though is that even though he's now in the spotlight and he's kind of put the Panthers on the map and become a superstar, he cares very much about his position on his team and helping his team win," says Kalil, who took out a full-page ad this offseason predicting the Panthers would win Super Bowl XLVII. "And that's something you saw last year. He got a lot of criticism for his demeanor and how he took a lot of those losses, and that says something a lot about him – that it's not the accolades, that the records he was able to break don't mean anything to him unless he can win football games.'

"There are times you wanted him to [be less emotional], but you don't ever want to tell somebody, 'Hey, that'll happen, get used to it,' because that's not the right attitude. You've just got to tell him, 'Look, this is the NFL, it's gonna be a battle, it's hard, every single game is gonna be a championship-type football game.'

"I think as the season went on, he did a lot better with how he carried himself. But in the same regard I think it came off in a positive way to a lot of guys. Although the media kind of crucified him for it and people outside saw it as a negative, I think guys really responded to it in a positive way because to us it sent a signal that this guy really cares about winning football games – not for himself, for this football team. It means something to him. And I think that kind of attitude is something that's inspiring, it's contagious."

Nope. If you get your news from TV you're already f*cked. Story won't fit in 30 second soundbite? Then it's not real news, or we'll skim over it and pretend that's all to the story.

Posted by fieryprophet on 05 September 2012 - 02:22 PM

Honestly surprised Cam isn't a captain instead of Gross, but I'm not against giving the elder statesman the nod.

Cam's still pretty young and raw. He'll get his due, once he's paid his dues.
