In Topic: New Offseason Video Promo by Drew Hanff

Thanks for not stretching the old 4:3 footage; that always bugs me.


In Topic: Greg Jennings Leaves Without Contract...

You should probably use common sense to realize that if he came for a visit and there is no news that he signed a contract, then he probably left without signing a contract.

But that may just be me.

 

I guess you equate using common sense with committing the false dilemma fallacy. In fact, there's a 3rd option between "signed a contract" and "left without signing," namely "hasn't left yet."


In Topic: Greg Jennings Leaves Without Contract...

I'm getting annoyed by the multiple complaints every time someone starts a thread. I, for one, am happy this thread was started, because I did not wish to read every single post in the earlier thread about Greg Jennings, and so, wouldn't have known he left without a contract unless I looked at another site. If Greg Jennings had signed a contract, would you complain about someone starting a different thread on that, too? No, because "He signed" is noteworthy news relative to "He's coming to visit." And so is "He didn't sign." Pie to the OP.


In Topic: Torrey Smith's Future

Just read that Smith drew 12 pass interference calls last year; that's a lot of yardage for the offense that didn't show up in his stats. 11 touchdowns and 12 PI calls proves he was causing plenty of problems for defenses even in a "down" year.


In Topic: Who are the best Panthers Defensive Ends All-Time?

18 February 2015 - 03:08 PM

Yes, Peppers is the best DE in team history. But he also was a below average DE for an entire season during what should have been his prime, and for reasons yet to be explained. That still gets to me.
