#2974091 Kelvins TD

Posted by CPantherKing on Yesterday, 08:53 PM

DA was money on that pass.

I keep pondering if DA started the whole 2nd half would the outcome be different?


You could have had Peyton Manning at QB, and we would have been battling from behind all night.


The Panthers touted #1 defense looked like the Jaguars defense until they had their backs against the goal line. Then that stopped after the defense was wore out in the second half. Horrible defensive game plan. No defensive adjustments. The steelers were dancing in the backfield to work that DL throughout the game and make the Panthers LBs commit early to a lane. Teams tried to do that to the Panthers last season, but we had this one player the would come barreling down the DL and blowing that strategy up down the line of scrimmage. That would be Hardy and now we have no DL that makes a RB pay for dancing in the backfield.


I hope the defense gets corrected, because the Steelers just showed the league how to exploit the Panthers front 7. All I can hope is that it was poor preparation and game planning by the coaches that led to all the misreads on defense.

Is it too early for some perspective? Seems like many people are focusing on the wrong side of the ball in the Steelers game for what went horribly wrong. Even though there are 2 more teams to play this week I am going to throw this out there.


The offense:


- Scored on 44% of their drives. Rank 11th of all offenses on Sunday. League average this season is 37.1%.


- Had an average of 37.7 yards per drive. Rank 12th. League averages 32.4 yards per drive.


- Held the ball for 2m47s per drive. Rank 16th. League average is 2m45s per drive.


- Offensive turnover % was 11.1%. Rank 17th. League average is 12.1%.


So, the offense did not suck. They were not the worst in the league. People hold the offense to an expectation of being perfect. Being the all time best offense in NFL history. You have bright spots and weak spots like any other team. The Panther were not even average on offense last night. They were an above average offense with their on field production. Some people minds just probably blew up and they are running to look at the numbers now.


Here was the problem.


Starting field position was horrible. Ranked 22nd. Was well below the league average. That is mainly defense and some special teams. If you are a numbers fan, then you know an offense must start at the 30-40 to consistently put up points.


I want to make this very clear. The Panthers did not lose this game because of their offense.


They lost this game because the Panthers defense allowed the Steelers to control the ball for an average of 3m25s (rank 23) while moving the ball an average of 46.7 yards (rank 27)  and scoring on 67% of their drives (rank 29th) [This does not count the TD from the fumble fiasco. Add that and the Panthers are dead last]. So, you now go to the offense put them in that position, right? Wrong. The Steelers started on average at the 24 yard line and still averaged less than 7 plays per drive (6.9). Nortman finished the day by pinning the Steelers back near their end zone time and time again. Steelers were near the bottom half of the league in starting field position. And to top it all off the Panthers defense did not get a single turnover in the game and only mustered 1 sack.


When your defense is playing this bad and you do not have one of the top 5 offenses in the NFL, mental mistakes are huge when your opponent is not making any mistakes. Philly Brown (fumbled), Josh Norman(did not fall on the ball and tried to pick it up near the 2 yard line), and Wes Horton(encroachment on a FG attempt) led to an 11 point swing to top it off. Eliminate the mental errors for an 11 point swing and you still have the defense giving up 27 points. The offense is equipped for a 4th quarter comeback and could have come close to pulling out a victory without the mental errors on the special teams units. 


This Panthers offense has its deficiencies, but when you look at the big picture around the league the Panthers offense is above average.


I hope that the Steelers got one up on the defense last night and this is not a trend. I was enjoying having the NFLs best defense until last night.


Perspective people. Perspective. Clear your minds. Focus on the defense.

Well anyone who broke the matchups down before the game knew The Olsen and KB combo would be the bread and butter against the Steelers. So, what do the coaches do? Stay away from them in the first half. Go to them in the second half sparingly. Rely on Tolbert, Bersin, and Brown to move the offense. Just idiotic. Played right into the few strengths the steelers have. Seemed like they did not do much game planning at all. Seemes like the same Ron Rivera cookie cutter game plan that was leading him to a pink slip.

What the fug happened to Cotchery?! He was practicing, thats what we get for having old ass WRs and this is D Wills last year as a Panther, bank on it


Cotchery's job is to read the Steelers and coach up the young receivers with Proehl. He will be beside Proehl when we are on offense and he will be next to McDermott when we are on defense. Do your thing Cotchery,


Something tells me we will know what they are doing before the snap a lot tonight.

Give Costas a Panthers jersey with his names on it. Just make sure the number is 76. Bet he wears it without getting the joke.

#2963262 Leave your Hardy jerseys at home

Posted by CPantherKing on 18 September 2014 - 07:01 PM

Please go back and read the MANY threads on Hardy .. It has been repeated MANY MANY times, that in the state of NC a bench trial on misdemeanor charges is null and void if the person requests a trial by jury.


Since you say he was found guilty. please show me the record of Greg Hardy were it has a conviction of DV on it.


You do not live in NC and have to go through the crazy laws we have.


It amazes me how many people think this is a felony which goes through a different process.


Let me spell this out again for the uninformed who rely on ESPN and Peter King for their facts.


A misdemeanor is defined as a "lesser crime".


These LESSER CRIMES go to a bench trial because there are so many LESSER CRIMES that you cannot jury trial all of them.


The bench trial is done to weed out the people who are guilty and agree to it.


The guilty verdict is NEVER set in stone in a bench trial unless the defendant agrees to a guilty verdict.


GUILTY verdicts are NEVER passed by the COURT SYSTEM at a bench trial unless it is agreed to by the defendant or if the higher courts do not approve a jury trial.


One judge is not greater than the court system or the higher courts.


When a jury trial is approved it means MORE IMPORTANT judges have overruled the LESSER JUDGES ruling so it can go to a jury trial.


So, when you put these simple facts together and use general logic you come to this...


The guilty verdict held no weight because the higher court poo'd on the reasoning behind the lesser judges reasoning. That is the only way you get a jury trial after a bench trial for a MISDEMEANOR charge. They do not just give them to anybody.


So, that guilty verdict you put so much weight on was tossed out by a higher court and no longer exists. Your argument essentially is based on a big pile of nothing.


Checks and balances. Checks and balances. But I do not expect people who value their self righteous views and arguments over the Bill of Rights while still being a proud American to understand how you actually get to a guilty verdict.

Those Eagles are going to hate it when they face a good defense with speed to shut down McCoy and Sproles.

#2956006 Peter King busted

Posted by CPantherKing on 15 September 2014 - 07:05 PM

Ok, I caved and clicked the link for the mmqb article. I was struck by:

"The only reason Greg Hardy hadn’t been suspended before coach Ron Rivera had the common sense (or the direction from embarrassed Panthers owner Jerry Richardson) is because—as Jon Wertheim and Emily Kaplan of SI and The MMQB wrote this weekend—there wasn’t a video, the way there was with Ray Rice. But read the trial testimony, and pore over the guilty verdict, and you’ll understand why so many people are outraged that Hardy played in Week 1, or will play at all for Carolina this season."

Read the trial testimony?

What trial testimony?



So, let me sum this up. Peter King and SI believe the only reason Hardy has not been suspended is because there is no proof of physical assault. But read the testimony that led to all the physical accusations being tossed and you see he yelled at and threatened a coked up drunk woman who would not leave his apartment and started to assault him physically while being held back by others at the apartment.


I tend to agree with Peter King and his genius here. There is no proof of aggravated assault = no suspension. What an idiot.


BTW, this Hardy nonsense is over a misdemeanor charge. However, a more serious crime like DUI/DWI sees players like Nick Fairley go untouched as he appeals and appeals and appeals some more. Makes perfect sense to an idiot. Let the system work and stop these insane witch hunts. You get your pizza in 30 minutes or less; not your justice. Patience is a virtue that many discard for instant gratification.

#2955000 Carolina is... (Primetime's Take)

Posted by CPantherKing on 15 September 2014 - 11:55 AM

Now maybe Cam Newton will get some respect.


He only has accounted for the most yards of any player in NFL history over his first 3 seasons. He is second to only Dan Marino in touchdowns. With 10 more wins this season he will be among the top 5 winning QBs in their first 4 seasons. Not Brady, Manning, Montana or Aikman.


He is on a trajectory to be the most productive QB in NFL history, but he gets pushed to the side because he is not a true pocket passer.

#2954799 Hardy yesterday

Posted by CPantherKing on 15 September 2014 - 10:54 AM

Because of all the media attention I'm not sure he'll even get a fair trial in his jury trial.


This is my fear for Hardy. The media is pushing fallacies and misinformation of the situation he was involved in.


The biggest hit happened when his team and head coach took a public stance of not backing him. Regardless of what they say now they did not trust Hardy to be innocent or the system to do its job.


In North Carolina, when an initial verdict and sentencing in a domestic violence case is given they are allowed an appeal. The appeal is viewed and when it is accepted by a higher court for a jury trial, the verdict and sentencing/punishment is SUSPENDED.


People miss this point. So, Hardy is OFFICIALLY not convicted of said crime. He is OFFICIALLY an innocent man that will be presented to a jury of his peers. Understand the legal system!


Three other points I always must reiterate for the purpose of JUSTICE and perspective


1) HARDY CALLED THE POLICE for protection/assistance from his ex-girlfriend PHYSICALLY assaulting him and trespassing in his residence.


2) The initial judgement shows there was no PHYSICAL abuse on the part of Greg Hardy. Stop saying he beat a woman. He has never beat a woman.


3) This is a Class A1 Misdemeanor defined as a "lesser crime" (the lowest level for an 18+ male verbally assaulting a female). Stop acting like this is a felony defined as a "serious or true crime". DUI/DWI (Jim Irsay), aggravated assault (Ray Rice), drug abuse (Sean Payton),  child abuse (Adrian Peterson), and murder (Aaron Hernandez) are felonies. Stop grouping Greg Hardy into a higher level of crime and publicly infuse it with that of a felonious act.


If you have ever yelled at another person with anger and intent to intimidate (aka Road Rage), then clean your own house before you go after Hardy.

Stop after mistakes and your fine, now I think your high as fug


Either people are really young, or they never saw Rice play his rookie season. This is not about production. It is about style of play. They have many similarities. I have yet to see another receiver play the position like Rice did until now. Prior to Rice it was Fred Biletnikoff. That style of play is old school - a lost art. Too many receivers rely on speed, juking, and overpowering. A receiver who tracks the ball, high points the catch, has full body control in full stride, creates separation with leverage and stride/acceleration, and extends their catch radius with their entire body is rare. They are always open. You may find receivers who demonstrate one or two of these qualities if you are lucky, but all of these abilities and you are watching something special.


I will leave you with some reading material for those who only know the legends of players from the past.


Fred Biletnikoff  -  and  -  Jerry Rice

Posted by CPantherKing on 14 September 2014 - 03:19 PM

But but the Panthers... Have no receivers to throw to. Cam is injured and cannot win. The OL cannot block. The running game is getting old. The Panthers have no secondary. Derek Anderson is one of the worst back ups in the NFL. No one repeats in the NFC South. Greg Olsen is not a pro bowl TE.  The Saints, Falcons, and Bucs all improved and will be dominant. Panthers are primed for a huge let down season. The Panthers D will allow 30+ points a game.


But but but...


Oh I give up. Panthers undefeated and in first place in the NFC South. Best D in the NFL and now a secondary to match.

Domestic Abuse is the hot topic now, not child abuse!.... Unless Goodell knew about it and tried to cover it up, Domestic Abuse will still be the hot topic.

Child abuse is domestic violence. It gets a harsher punishment among DV cases.
