In Topic: What does Gettleman need to do to make you optimistic for 2013?

30 January 2013 - 12:35 PM

There is nothing he can do to make me as optimistic as I was last off-season. I really expected an over-the-top team, as I think a lot of people did.

I will always pull for the Panthers to do great things, but as of now (actually since game 3 of 2012) I am in full on "I'll believe it when I see it" mode. Nothing anybody says will ever get me to be excited about this team. This time, my enthusiasm will have to be earned. I'll still watch every game, every off-season move with interest, always root for my team and I'll still be bummed when they loose... but until I see it on the field, I won't get fooled again.

It was my own fault of course, not managing my own expectations...

So what can he say to make me optimistic? Nothing.
Show me, don't tell me.

I watch until the part where we tie the score with 2 minutes to go... then I turn the channels and pretend the rest never happened.
Like watching "Old Yeller" and bailing out at the end to avoid the pain!

In Topic: Browns officially name Norv

I've always said "be nice to the little guys because you might be working for them someday"... looks like Norv believes that same philosophy.

... and I haven't seen anything that says he IS going to Cleveland... just that he is "expected" to go. Plenty of rumors and "insider tips" have turned into vapor in the past

Rivera may be a practical lame duck this year, but that could be a good thing for Norv if comes here... If/when Rivera gets canned mid-season, Norv could be there to step in as HC. Not saying I want Norv as HC, but it might be a smart move on his part to come here... If Panthers do great, he's a hero. If they suck, he can step in as HC with a built-in excuse for a loosing season.
It's win-win for Norv
