#3136150 Do the Panthers win the division?

Posted by iamhubby1 on 14 December 2014 - 08:35 PM

What if NO win out?

If NO wins out, they win the Division.
If NO loses a game, we need to win out.

If NO loses a game, and ATL wins out, ATL wins the Division.

If we win out, we need NO to lose a game.

Because of our tie, all we need to do is match the win totals of NO and ATl. They will have more loses, which gives us a better winning percentage.

Hope that helps. Even if you can be a handful during the game day threads.

#3131907 Will R.R do the inthinkable...start Dlo ?

Posted by iamhubby1 on 13 December 2014 - 02:12 AM

No, it isn't throwing the kitchen sink....it is pretty dang simplistic.

Foster wasted carries at his end here.....

Williams is doing it now....same thing.

It is what it is. It isn't that complicated nor do you need to try to dig through stats to tell you some things.

And again, as smart of coaches are....we know they often do painfully obvious dumb things.

So yeah, that's all I got to say about that. And yes, 28 is better than 34 now. It is a fact. How is it? Just watch them. Again, it doesn't have to be that hard.

present day, the gap between the two runners is too big to even discuss any of this.

Real arguement is should Williams even be taking the 5 or so touches Fozzy might deserve

You stated that bolded portion not as an opinion, but as a fact. A fact not worthy of discussion. Well guess what? I have a rebuttal. I know, who'd a thunk it.

Until the last two weeks no RB was going to be effective behind our O-line. All of a sudden we have a line combo that is working, and Stewy happens to be healthy so he gets to be the one to take advantage of the situation. I am happy for him, as his success is good for the team.

But until we give DWill the same opportunity to run behind a line that can actually open up running lanes, we don't really know what he can/cannot give us.

I am extremely happy with the way our line is playing right now. And the running games jump in production is a direct result. Granted Stewy has looked good the last two weeks. But, lets not discount DWill until we get to see him run behind a line that can actually, you know, like, open up a hole to run through.

If our fairy tale season is to come to a fruitful conclusion. We are going to need a healthy Stewy and DWill. And the way our line is blocking right now. No reason to believe they both can't be effective.

#3098565 Still in for Rivera~

Posted by iamhubby1 on 20 November 2014 - 12:34 PM

There are definite signs that he may have lost the locker room, or at least a significant portion of it.
If that is the case, you really do have to let him go.  You don't recover from that.

Just because players are frustrated, does not necessarily mean Rivera has lost the locker room. Plenty of teams have rebounded from frustrating seasons.

IMO, this whole season comes down to 2 points. 1. Shula and his style of offense. 2. The talent this offense has/doesn't have.

Upgrade the OC and offensive talent, and maybe we can score some more points. To me, that would add some much needed enthusiasm to the offense, as well as taking a poo ton of pressure off the defense.

In short. Just maybe Rivera and Gman understand that Shula and his offense, along with the dearth of offensive talent in general, have more to do with our underwhelming season than anything else.

We as fans can react anyway we wish. Calling for heads to roll is our right. Unfortunately, the FO can't think that way. Giving Rivera the tools he needs to succeed could very well fix our ails.

Rivera may be conservative by nature. And he may never go for a wide open, pass happy offense. But he may be fine with an OC that has the imagination to give his players plays that work to their advantage.

tl/dr version. Get rid of Shula. Upgrade the offensive talent. Then see what Rivera can do.

#3098502 Still in for Rivera~

Posted by iamhubby1 on 20 November 2014 - 11:57 AM

Graham Gano missed between 40-49 yards earlier in the season and missed between 40-49 2 times last year.

It is not anywhere close to being automatic. It was a moronic decision. I don't know how anyone can defend it.

Gano had missed a grand total of 2 kicks from inside 50 yards at BOA. I would say that is pretty good. Good enough to have the faith he would make another one.

But...the decision to shut down the Offense was, and still is, a damm stupid one. Chances are, one more first down equals a win.

So I disagree that the FG was a lost cause. I agree that not going for the first was just a horrible one.

Prior to Sundays miss, Gano was 5 of 6 from 40-49 yards this season.

But, it sounds so much better to say that that equates to a 20% miss rate.

At the time, promoting Shula to OC was done for continuities sake. At the time it was thought that is was best for Cam and his development. Did it backfire? Um...yeah. But it was less than 2 years ago. Give Rivera and Gman time to rectify the mistake before you bury the hatchet.

The problem becomes. If you retain Rivera, can you even get a decent OC to come here? Or are you better served by cleaning house? I would think you can upgrade the OC and still keep Rivera. If that is what the FO wishes.

Personally, with what Rivera was given this year. He deserves a chance to see this through. Upgrade the talent and OC for him. If he fails, then let him go. I just don't see the upside to cleaning house after what transpired this year.

Maybe, just maybe, Rivera would allow a new OC to call a game that utilizes the talent, well, an upgraded roster, in todays NFL. He may be conservative by nature. But that does not automatically preclude he would be adverse to an offense that could actually work.

Ah hellz, fire everyone. Start over. Why not? It's not like we have the talent to compete for a Super Bowl. It must be the HC.

#3091732 Corey "Philly" Brown = Our best WR

Posted by iamhubby1 on 16 November 2014 - 06:08 PM

He never saw the field on the last drive. Bersin did.

1 of the 2 WRs that scored today didn't see the field on the last drive with the game on the line. lol

Um, KB caught the last pass of the game. The one he handed off to Olsen to step out of bounds.

But don't let facts get in the way of your imagination.

#3070905 Cam just wants to have fun

Posted by iamhubby1 on 06 November 2014 - 02:20 PM

I kinda remember fun. But after 20+ years of marriage, the concept is fading.

Some folks just need to complain. My brother in law, who never, ever, pays for anything, complains about everything. I gave him 20 bucks to go buy some beer. He bought a six pack and kept the change. Then complained when I drank one of "his" beers.

Kids. You gotta love em'. Cuz you sure cant' cut em' up and make dog food outta them.

#3066174 Greg Cosell talks Cam and the Saints game

Posted by iamhubby1 on 03 November 2014 - 01:40 PM

There is a very real possibility that Cam is going to have a HOF career with the skill set he possesses.

Yet, for some of you, it is not enough.

It is truly sad that Cam has to be damm near perfect for some folks to be happy. Anything less, and all of a sudden Cam needs to go. Unrealistic expectations = the Madden effect. They see the talent Cam has, and expect/demand results. When they don't get the results they demand, it must be Cam's fault.

I would be willing to bet that almost every fan that truly believes that Cam cannot lead this team to the promised land never played football. They have no idea whatsoever what it takes to lead a team to victory. They just expect, and feel they deserve, for their QB to be the best. Anything else, is unacceptable.

I blame the interwebz. If it weren't for that, we wouldn't know how many fans have such goofy ideas on how football really works. Almost makes me wish for the good ol' days where you were blissfully unaware of how many folks really don't know squat about football.

In conclusion, if you truly believe Cam can't get this team where it wants to go. You need to quit letting your emotions override your brain.

#3039554 We SHOULD win the NFC South

Posted by iamhubby1 on 24 October 2014 - 03:13 AM

I still disagree with you. In my view, a 2-1-13 season would not deserve to be called a winning season even though the team would have won more games than it lost (which is all you require for a winning season).
Edit: Just to be clear, my view is that a truly winning season is one in which you win more than half of the games you play.

It does not matter how you go about it, as long as you win more than you lose, it is a winning season.

I am not sure what you are trying to prove, but...winning more than you lose is winning.

You still may miss the playoffs, but as long as you win more games than you lose, you have yourself a winning season. It may suck as a fan, and it may not get you anything other than a decent draft pick. But, you won more than you lost.

Other than that, I am done.

#3038411 We SHOULD win the NFC South

Posted by iamhubby1 on 23 October 2014 - 10:09 AM

It's "not how it works" for purposes of ranking records. But it does work for the everyday, literal sense of what it means to win. If you disagree, you are committed to the view that the 0-0-16 team literally won 8 games.

You are so far down that hole I would be surprised if any light at all seeps in.

You are equating 0 wins to 8 wins to make a point? Cool.

Winning more games than you lose. Um...let me think...yupperz, that be a winning season.

And to make sure there is no misinterpretation. 0-0-16 would NOT be a winning season. Although it would NOT be a losing season either. So it would be the same as an 8-8 season. .500. Just a very sad .500.

#3038356 jonathan stewart vs fozzy

Posted by iamhubby1 on 23 October 2014 - 09:21 AM

Stew played and fought harder on Sunday than any player this year not named Greg Olsen, Cam Newton, or Luke Kuechly. He played his ass off and anyone who can't see that does not have the proper idea of "working your ass off"

But, but, but, wacka wacka?

Football fans know of what you speak. I think it has more to do with that contract, and recent injury issues, than anything. Most fans are just frustrated with Stewy. If they take their heart out of it and only look at the football player. Yup, he is a beast.

Or more to the point. It is the reactionaries. DA comes in and lights up the second string, bench Cam. Fozzy has 2 good runs, start him. Offense goes 3 and out, fire Shula. Some folks are all about change for changes sake. You can't love em', you can't trust em', and no good deed goes unpunished.

#3038324 Andrew Norwell: The new utility tool...

Posted by iamhubby1 on 23 October 2014 - 09:00 AM

As a Spartan, I saw this kid play for 2 years. When we drafted him, I knew he would eventually be a starter. So back off.

Oh, and I absolutely hate having to root for a suckeye.

#3003215 O-Line\No Huddle

Posted by iamhubby1 on 06 October 2014 - 06:07 PM

I think 75% is a bit too high. We need to pick our spots wisely

IMO, you can still use the no huddle without speeding the game up. Just because you are in no huddle doesn't necessarily mean you have to snap the ball with 20 seconds still on the clock.

When you get a Defense in certain personnel groupings you want to exploit, then use it. Or when you want to get Cam into a rhythm, use it. Or maybe even when the Defense is looking tired, use it to wear them out even more.

The point being, you can speed the game up, or not, using the no huddle. And it can actually help your Offense out as well.

Posted by iamhubby1 on 04 October 2014 - 04:55 PM

getting whooped at the point of attack and whiffing on blocks isn't shooting yourself in the foot...it's being a bad football player

Yup. The only ones making mistakes this year is the O-line.

12 men on the field negates a Red Zone 1st down.

12 men on the field negates a punt and give Pitt a 1st down.

Muffed punt for a TD.

Pass Interference negates a punt.

Block in the back negates a 1st down and we get a FG.

Missed tackles and gap assignments hurting the Defense.

Yup, the only ones making mistakes are the O-line.

#2991349 Top 4 reasons for current losing streak

Posted by iamhubby1 on 30 September 2014 - 09:58 PM

I kinda agree, and disagree.
This team can't score points, haven't been able to in a couple seasons.  We mess up a few plays, and our O can't overcome it.
I think it's more scheme than leadership.

To me this is the one thing that is different from last year. We seem to make more mistakes, at the worst time, than we did last year.

I know we made mistakes last year. But not like this. We have made more mistakes already this year than all of last year put together.

We need to get back to playing Panther football. Disciplined football. And quit making all these dumb mistakes.

#2989084 Cracking Down on this Forum

Posted by iamhubby1 on 29 September 2014 - 05:35 PM

Dude, I'm on your side here, but I'm gonna have to step in (if somebody already hasn't)...
Being ambulatory is a GOOD THING.
Being ambulatory means you have the capability to be up and about and to walk.
The opposite of ambulatory is bed-ridden.
If Cam is ambulatory, that is GOOD.  It means he can move around.
You OK now?   :lol:

I know. I fugged up on that one. Oops
