Someone put this up in the Saints* locker room, we can get the entire team shipped off to Gitmo!

#1779142 Q&a: Ron Rivera Feels Good About Carolina Panthers Direction

Posted by fieryprophet on 21 May 2012 - 11:42 AM

If I was a player, I would not want to have Ron Rivera's foot up my ass. Man don't play.

#1778876 Cam At Preakness

Posted by fieryprophet on 21 May 2012 - 01:10 AM

You are so wrong, where to begin.

Having a steady gf means he is emotionally attached & never fully focused on football. Cam doesn't need some girl in his head. As a woman she is programmed to control his life, annoy him, take up his free time, & demand attention. He will always be doing things to appeasIe her. If he is single he can bang all the bad bitches & strange he wants with no emotional attachment & without having to do all the loving & caring bullshit. He can bust a nut & call her a cab. No spooning & cuddling all night. Also, he doesn't have to "chase tail" like us peasants. He is Cam Newton; his swag is to the moon.

I'm guessing you are not a hit with the ladies.

#1775365 Matt Ryan, Alex Smith, Matt Moore All Better Than Cam Last Year

Posted by fieryprophet on 17 May 2012 - 09:37 AM

Considering 99% of analysts and even Panther fans expected Cam to be sitting somewhere around #32 I'd say this is a damn fine achievement of arbitrary ranking/statistical buffoonery.

Stupid offseason.
Also, I only see one rookie on that list. . .

#1772576 Challenges Facing Cam And Other 2011 Qbs

Posted by fieryprophet on 14 May 2012 - 05:36 PM

People say defensive coordinators now have a year of tape, but you have to remember Cam will now have a whole offseason to watch tape as well, and will be even more comfortable in our offense so he can do more read and react and not force throws because it's what the play calls for. I don't think he'll regress at all. Ponder either.

The interesting thing to me is how forward Rivera is about that very fact. No mention of "hey, you'll improve naturally" but instead a reminder that other teams are going to come after him harder. No laurel resting here.

Anyone questioning Charles' commitment is not a Panthers fan. The coaching staff is very pleased with his effort.

#1762382 The Years Of Marty Hurney

Posted by fieryprophet on 03 May 2012 - 12:42 AM

Someone go break down the other 31 GMs in the league and compare them to Hurney.

When you do you'll realize fan bases have no effing clue how to run a team and that the failure rate for a good GM is pretty damn high. Why?

The average NFL career is four years. There aren't that many good players that stay good for a long time.

Hurney is far and away one of the best GMs in the business, period.

Posted by fieryprophet on 02 May 2012 - 08:00 PM

Cmon guys... how insecure do we have to be, really?

You realize we're still freaking out that Cam only bought a $1.6 million condo?

He should have built a house inside the stadium, just to prove he wouldn't leave us!

#1761904 How Would You Feel If You Were Accused, Convicted And Sentenced

Posted by fieryprophet on 02 May 2012 - 07:07 PM

You're not obviously not intelligent enough to have a mature and calm debate with me on this, so this is where our correspondence ends. Like a pubescent adolescent I'd imagine that you'd come back with something even more silly than you already have, just because like a woman you feel the need to get in the last word. So here's your time to shine, and no matter what u say you won't get a response from me. My words in my previous posts were concise... Not my problem that 1- you missed the message and 2- you are so emotional when it comes to this topic that it prohibits you from seeing any other rational alternatives other than what we have all heard.

You managed to put down women, the Constitution, common sense and yourself all in one swoop. Well done.

#1759216 Why Our Defensive Tackles Are Not As Bad As Portrayed

Posted by fieryprophet on 30 April 2012 - 08:57 PM

After a long review of our games via Game Rewind it dawned on me that Hurney's not covering his butt, and Rivera's not blind as a bat: we really do not have anywhere near as bad a defensive tackle squad as we've all been led to believe by the media.

First, a quick recap of the obvious: we run a 4-3 defense, specifically of the Jim Johnson variety. This means that the responsibilities of the defensive line, especially in the run game, are far more geared to eating up blocks and containing their gaps than tackling the ballcarrier. That responsibility lies with the linebackers, who should have clear lanes left for them if the DTs are doing their jobs.

And guess what, they often were. The Chicago game stands out to me in particular; almost all of Forte's best runs came either off tackle (the DE and safety's responsibility) or through a hole that a linebacker had just shot through and completely whiffed in the backfield.

For example, take this offset I formation:

The fullback is lined up on the strong side, and James Anderson is showing a weakside blitz.

Here's the view from the coaches film, showing our 4-3 formation with Charles Johnson lined up strong side and Hardy on the weak:

Posted Image

At the snap, you see James take off on his blitz, Charles Johnson gets doubled by the tight end at right tackle, Fua does his job and takes up two blocks and slows down the right guard, McClain gets such a nice burst that the left guard has no choice but to chop block him, and Hardy fights to contain the cutback lane. Notice the arrow indicating Jason Williams free pass into the backfield, which is the entire point of running an aggressive Jim Johnson 4-3: giving your linebackers the opportunity to take down the ball carrier unblocked.

Posted Image

Unfortunately, Williams is not up to the task: he overshoots Forte completely, and Sherrod Martin gets completely turned around on his block and fails to prevent Forte from getting to the next level.

Posted Image

The play resulted in a 46 yard gash, with Charles Godfrey completely whiffing on a tackle that would have held the gain to half that, and Captain Munnerlyn and Darius Butler have to save the day with a tackle from behind (interestingly enough, McClain has an excellent chance to catch him from behind as well. He shows some surprising feet for a DT!) All of this happened even though the defensive tackles and ends all did their jobs adequately, and gave a linebacker a direct path into the backfield to tackle the ballcarrier.

This is a theme throughout the season, where even when the DTs made a nice push on the pocket or ate up the blocks necessary to give the linebackers the chance to clean up, almost no one but James Anderson was really up to the task, as Conner and Senn repeatedly failed to shed blocks or make tackles within their lanes. Even worse, once the ballcarriers got past the linebackers, they often made mincemeat of both Martin and Godfrey. This is not to say our DT corps could not stand improvement, because it absolutely could, especially since the line play improved when the rookies sat down and the more experienced DTs like Neblett and Kearse Shirley came in, but it cannot be stressed enough how badly our linebacker injuries wrecked the entire scheme and put an unfair onus on our DT group. What it really boils down to is that an aggressive 4-3 really requires disciplined, sure-tackling linebackers to be successful, and unfortunately those commodities were in short supply this past season. Sadly, our safety group badly regressed as well, especially in the tackling department.

In this context, the absence of a DT pick in our draft and the #9 selection of tackling monster Luke Kuechly makes perfect sense.

Posted by fieryprophet on 29 April 2012 - 01:12 AM

I don't want to go off on this tangent but this conversation has run its course.

A. Do you have any foul-proof documents/facts/proof that the relationship between Fox and Hurney, and Rivera and Hurney are any different. I see people shifting any blame off of Hurney and on to Fox, so it would be good to get some insight on that. I googled searched it but came up with nothing.

B. If the relationship is different, does it bother you that Hurney is only able to do his job because Rivera is standing next to him.

C. Not a question, but I think only so much can be pinned on Fox. It going to suck if 2013 people are saying damn you Fox.

A. You don't Google that kind of stuff, you know it by paying attention. When Fox was around he worked hand in hand with Hurney, and now that Ron is here they coordinate as well.

B. Hurney is a coach-friendly GM. He tries to find the best players that fit their schemes. Fox had a different mindset for his scheme than Rivera. It led to good players and bad ones. Hurney's best fit is as a cap manager and negotiator that picks the guys a good coach with an eye for talent wants. He now has that coach.

C. This is Rivera's club now. If things don't pan out it's on Ron.

Now get off your anti-Hurney kick and learn.
