criticism of williams is largely a product of his contract imo. it's not his fault and i certainly dont expect him to refuse his paycheck but unless he's a top 10 back it hurts the team to have to pay him every week on his current contract.
How much effort does it take to shut down a player years removed from his prime?
you see i would normally agree with this line of thought but then im reminded that owen daniels and steve smith combined for 11 catches, 182 yards and 2 tds today so to answer your question: sometimes more effort than you'd think
Been some real sour people about Smitty this offseason.
"Pssht he's washed up, that loud mouth diva can't play anymore"
Lol he showed y'all mother fugers today didn't he? Dude could've went over 200 today if they wanted him to.
yeah if only we had kept smith and ran some designed busted plays for him that could have been cam fumbling the snap and throwing up a prayer or olsen tipping an overthrown pass intended for him directly into smith's hands
google "the myth of the model minority" if you'd like to understand why your post is relevant but not at all in the way you believe it to be. you will find that it is a stereotype that ignores the tremendous difference in outcomes among different groups of asian americans as well as the overall impact of selective immigration but uh...that's a feature, not a bug. this stereotype was carefully crafted by conservatives much like yourself as a quick, convenient way to hand wave very real claims of discrimination against asian americans ("but look how successful your people are!") as well as african americans, among others ("but look how successful these people are!"); constantly shifting rhetorical focus, moving the goalposts, and falsely asserting that a "successful" racial minority is indicative of a post-racial society in the same way that the first black president has signaled the end of racism as we know it (as well as the rise of the dreaded reverse racism!)
i will take your near instantaneous "but what about asians huh hUH HUH?" as a split vote for "genetic differences" and "rap music", thank you for your time
there's more but these together (mostly ghost wars obviously) are ok for attempting to make sense of "US intervenes in poor ME country, targeting *insert greatest threat to humanity as we know it* but also conveniently striking critical infrastructure while providing a conveniently plausible explanation for how US weapons could have ended up in the hands of 'moderate rebels' (they already have but w/e) when they someday become the new *insert greatest threat to humanity as we know it* as soon as they have helped blow up the most pressing bogeymen and overthrown the most terrible oppressive dictators and the super happy fun totally not authoritarian US puppet government is installed" imo
in conclusion this is stupid and hella lame and also extremely calculated and the next strike in a long line of "bad for literally everyone in some way but the rich" global policy
meh idk about all that, i'm not going to rip somebody's asshole out for being wrong about cam, especially if they admit it. from a pure informational perspective he's fine; sometimes you just have to separate the raw data from its source and appreciate for what it is.
i don't see the point in disparaging what he's good at just because of the things he's really bad at
from a pure informational perspective he is a news aggregator and talk radio caller style poster masquerading as some sort of football analyst. really the more i think about it, the more dead on the rick reilly comparison seems to be
rather than read his wordy hot take on some dumb pft story or defense of racially tinged hit pieces, i prefer to just go directly to the source
he's an asset to the main forum, i just wish he'd stay there
this is the same dude who breathlessly defended nolan nawrocki on the heels of his fake smile "scouting report" hit piece to the point that he made a huge post detailing how nawrocki didn't appeal to racial animus because he also criticized noted elite nfl qb prospects such as jimmy clausen, tim the foolman tebow, and ryan fuging mallet
he's an asset to the main forum in the same way that sylvianlight was an asset to the tinderbox. he is the fuging rick reilly of panthers posting
seems like half of the threads that gain any traction around here will at some point devolve into posting about posting which is hella dumb imo
like what's a more valuable post, "you're an idiot and here's why: (facts, evidence, etc)" or "gosh darn it you know i care about you phillyb i hope everything's ok at home because i noticed you pied a guy who insulted me and in case you weren't aware im a literal fuging baby" because it seems like the former most closely resembles "Religion, Politics, heated debate" while the latter is a useless diversionary tactic deployed once a poster realizes things aren't going quite like he had intended when he first stumbled to his computer and opened his aging conservative straight white middle aged male mouth, took a poo out of it, and somehow managed to put that experience to words here on the carolina huddle dot com tinderbox
