#3184840 We gave up, they never did

Posted by fieryprophet on 07 January 2015 - 01:56 PM

People already bailing due to the Star news.

SMDH. Oh ye of little faith.


#3184587 Star Not At Practice

Star would be a blow but this team has taken everything thrown at them.

Bring it.


#3184117 The Huddle Podcast - Playoff talk with Panthers CB Josh Norman

This is the best thing that anyone can do to help us out. If everyone tweeted it out and shared on social media, it would go a real long way for us. Thanks man.


I scratched the URL into the wall of a gas station bathroom stall, right below "SCP 4 Lyfe!"

I never gave up but that's because I want to win even when we are eliminated and every win costs us a draft place because winning is what matters. All those late season runs to 6-10 and 7-9 have mattered and haven't hurt our drafts. In fact we had less pressure to take the right players simply because they fell to us.

This thread is one giant facepalm.


#3177368 Rivera, a shot at coach of year?

Posted by fieryprophet on 04 January 2015 - 12:59 PM

What gets wildly undervalued about Rivera and his staff is that they have done a tremendous job developing young talent while coaxing contributions from their veterans. Charles Johnson, Thomas Davis, Kalil and Olsen have thrived under Rivera, while Cam and Luke and Star and Kelvin and Ealy and Norman and Boston and Bene and Kawann, etc. have all grown under his development. The most important part of coaching is bringing out improvement in your young players and Rivera and his staff have done that consistently. Coupled with Gettleman's drafts this can be a potent combination for future success.




#3177267 Should we look at bringing in a new kicker this offseason? Or stick with Gano?

Posted by fieryprophet on 04 January 2015 - 12:31 PM

He's fine. Nobody makes them all, and his league-leading touchback % helps hide a very prone coverage unit. That's a valuable benefit considering Fox once kept two kickers just to get more touchbacks.




#3177242 Someone Finally "Gets" Cam Newton

What Rivera says there is so key -- for Newton, it's all about being relaxed and having a good time.

So many just don't get that about him. They see him do his Superman celebration when he scores a touchdown and point down the field when the team gets a first down and they think he's showcasing arrogance. But really, he's just playing around. Newton is a big kid -- not in an entitled, Johnny Manziel way, but in a joyful, all-for-the-love-of-the-game way. He works hard and keeps his drama to a minimum -- note how controversy-free his reign at Carolina has been so far -- but he is at his best when he remembers that this game is supposed to be fun. That's when he's able to lead, to improvise, and to do everything that makes him such a special quarterback.

 

Can someone please inform the rest of the media?




#3176867 Honest discussion on Cam's accuracy issues.

And neither turnover were Cam's fault alone: Cotchery stopped his route and the tackle got beat on the fumble.


#3175867 C Newton after the game

Posted by fieryprophet on 03 January 2015 - 10:23 PM

The implication is dumb. The difference in the handshakes isn't because Ray Lewis is black, it's because he's a close friend and mentor to Cam.

My voice is gone. Stadium was the best I've ever seen it.


#3166225 DeAngelo has become borderline annoying on social media.

Posted by fieryprophet on 31 December 2014 - 04:02 PM

It wasn't that bad of a reply.

I commend skill when I see it, and Igo does some excellent work with a camera. I have seen a lot of people with bigger budgets do far worse.


#3165539 Really Ron... Really?

Posted by fieryprophet on 31 December 2014 - 09:01 AM

Rivera isn't going to give away any intentions to the media. What's so hard to understand about this?




#3165532 Would you rather.....Cam Newton edition

Posted by fieryprophet on 31 December 2014 - 08:56 AM

Option B is the best option for both Cam's health and our ability to compete. Cam was doing fine earlier this season without running until his protection fell apart, we don't need him to be the run game, just the threat is enough.
