#3038777 Want to see Charles Godfrey get cut in real time?

Posted by the_philosopher on Yesterday, 03:16 PM

Who else tried to hit the play button?

#3035992 Thanks Charles

Posted by the_philosopher on 21 October 2014 - 05:35 PM

No need to be a frash bastard


Agreed. Especially when the other guy was right. Godfrey should have started the season as a backup safety with us. And that's what he should still be, really.

#3035108 We SHOULD win the NFC South

Posted by the_philosopher on 21 October 2014 - 12:03 PM

It looks like NFL rules back me up:


"Tie games count as one-half win and one-half loss for both clubs." So in terms of win-percentage, 8-7-1 is calculated as 8.5 wins and 8.5 losses, or .500. That is not a winning season.


That said, I'm an optimist and don't see why they can't turn it around and get a winning season. Go Panthers!


Ah, crap. Time for me to eat my crow and prove myself wrong.


According to NFL rules, we would have an 8.5-7.5 record. So that's a winning season, after all.

Yes that is clearly a winning season.

Why do you guys search for ways to be disappointed? Not just you, but about 50% of this board


Ha. Easy, dude. I'm just suggesting that a winning season occurs only when you win more games than you don't win. I think I'm right about that.



Edit: I've since used NFL rules to prove myself wrong (see below). +1 for teeray.

#3034991 The Most Startling Fact About the Blowouts

Posted by the_philosopher on 21 October 2014 - 11:21 AM

agreed, but how leaky our defense has been- length of field is less of a consideration 


Right. And this was really my point in making this thread: we are playing really, really bad. We're getting whooped without fluky quick scores for the other team.

#3033653 The Most Startling Fact About the Blowouts

Posted by the_philosopher on 20 October 2014 - 05:00 PM

Everybody knows that we've had our butts whipped in 3 out of 7 games, but here's the scariest thing to me about the blowouts: we are getting spanked even without turning the ball over. When I watch other teams get blown out in the NFL, it's almost always in part because they turn the ball over; they give up a quick pick-6, fumble in the other team's redzone, etc. In such cases, it's common to feel like the team is experiencing some bad luck in addition to playing poorly. But not so with these panthers:


vs Steelers: Down 23-6 with 2:31 left in the 3rd quarter after only one turnover (early 3rd qtr. Newton sack/fumble).


vs Ravens: Down 35-10 with 11:34 left in the 4th with ZERO turnovers (unbelievable!).


vs Packers: Down 35-3 with 10:28 to go in the 3rd quarter with ZERO turnovers (Are you kidding me?)



This is truly startling.










#3023123 After 6 Games, Panthers can throw it and not much else

Posted by the_philosopher on 15 October 2014 - 10:48 PM

Since several teams have had bye weeks, it's best to compare yards per game as opposed to total yards. In terms of yards per game, that Panthers rank as follows:


Passing Offense: 12th

Rushing Offense: 28th

Total Offense: 18th


Passing Defense: 20th

Rushing Defense: 27th

Total Defense: 26th

#3023069 WR Stat Tracker

Posted by the_philosopher on 15 October 2014 - 09:23 PM

gotta love that each of jerricho's catches are going for a little more than half of the entire field



First glance tells me math isn't a priority for this outfit. Not sure I'd bank on its veracity



Just a typo, dear friends, from putting yards per game in place of yards per reception. It's fixed now.

#3022851 WR Stat Tracker

Posted by the_philosopher on 15 October 2014 - 06:28 PM



Notable Developments:

  • Lafell surpasses Cotchery (who still doesn't have a TD) in YPG.
  • Bersin surpasses Philly Brown in YPG. (Philly was knocked out of game w/ a concussion.)
  • Benjamin now leads group with 5 TD's.



I've been thinking it would be nice to have a go-to thread for comparing WR stats of the players we let go, those we acquired, and those that many huddlers thought we should have acquired in the offseason. I plan to update these stats weekly.


Please remind me of any other players besides Nicks that were coveted on the huddle. Also, let me know if you are aware of a site that keeps track of 3rd down conversions.

#2987270 If I am Cam's agent this offseason

Posted by the_philosopher on 29 September 2014 - 07:15 AM



his stock is only going to go down this year because it will be perceived that he had a down year when the fact remains that he had the cupboard emptied around him.


I seriously doubt that other GM's evaluate quarterbacks the way the media does. They'd pour over the film and they''d see a really big and tough dude who makes good decisions and throws accurate and throws hard, and they'd pay him big. But I expect Gettlemen to pay him big this offseason; all of his previous moves have been designed to make that happen.

#2979033 Panthers fans taking over in Hawaii?

Here's a map from Dick's Sporting Goods that shows most popular 2014 jersey sales by state. What's the deal with Hawaii? Didn't they hear that we cut Pilares?

#2943986 Donkey Kong Suh

Posted by the_philosopher on 11 September 2014 - 03:50 PM

So dumb. Cam wasn't even insulting the guy. His name is Na-dama-kong Suh. He's big and plays with a mean streak (like the original Donkey Kong). So Donkey Kong Suh is a great nickname that Suh should embrace and thank Cam for. Suh would have made so much money off it had his agent/marketing team thought of it first.

#2939082 Cut or Keep Greg Hardy

Posted by the_philosopher on 09 September 2014 - 11:43 AM

Did anyone ever take the time and look into the size of the guys Smitty hit? If the wrongness level of the act hinges on size deferential you'd think that would have been brought up.  What about when the news broke that Beason hit a dude in a bar, I imagine there aren't many guys out there bigger than Beason. At the time size didn't matter. Imo all assault should be treated the same by the league regardless of sex.


I agree with this, especially in the era of gender equality. The reason that Rice's action was so wrong was not because his victim was a female but because his victim was so much physically weaker than him. There is a fundamental tension between all this "A man should never lay his hand on a woman" rhetoric and the notion (I uphold) that men and women should be treated equally. Feminists should find the rhetoric offensive. The belief that men and women should be afforded equal respect means that assaults of physically weaker men should generate just as much outrage as assaults of physically weaker women.


(Now, it may be that the Ray Rice situation deserves greater outrage than the Beason situation given that Ray Rice decked someone less powerful than him who he was in a loving relationship with; that means Rice's action was a betrayal of a loved one and is thus extremely harmful psychologically. But again, that additional harm does not depend on his victim's being a female.)


Edit: Fixed typo.

#2930097 Ealy, Brandon Williams Among Inactives Tomorrow

Posted by the_philosopher on 07 September 2014 - 05:13 AM

Were sitting the guys that had the best pre season for guys with experience. Sounds real conservative.


My thoughts exactly--coach "respecting" veterans until they play bad enough to lose their positions. Smells like a Fox to me.

Would never forget about Tolbert, he is an average blocker at best. This is part of the reason for deangelos decline, started when Hoover left.

Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle


I absolutely agree and have been thinking this the last few seasons. We hardly ever use a lead blocker since Cam arrived for one thing, and when we do, Tolbert seems like a liability. I've seen him completely whiff and I've seen many times where he seems to just throw his body at a guy, whereas Hoover would stand people up in the hole and grab on.


I like to watch Tolbert run and dance as much as anybody, but he does not play like a complete FB in my opinion.
