#3142363 Johnny Manziel....

Posted by mcdougal on Yesterday, 10:59 PM

One thing that I did think of today. Rivera needs to tell his defense that they better not mock Manizel until we are up by 30in the 4th. 


The Bengels drew at least one 15 yard penalty doing the money sign.


Gotta stay focus and give up any unnecessary penalties. 

#3136466 Would You Rather Face Manziel or Hoyer?

Posted by mcdougal on 14 December 2014 - 11:23 PM

For the same reason if it was up to you, you'll bench Cam for D.A.


lol you gotta love it don't you? He doesn't understand how fuging Hoyer is on the bench, but then jumps and screams about a historic franchise qb not being on the bench...


Gotta love panthers fans...

#3125934 Al Wallace said Cam Newton will never be a franchise qb

Posted by mcdougal on 08 December 2014 - 10:52 PM

It's no question if Cam was white he wouldn't face the same criticisms. Hell you could even look at the dolphins' forum with Tannenhill. He has shown flashes of good play but lots of bad play too yet they don't have as many dolphins fans complaining about all the mistakes he makes. They don't have fans who seem to be looking for him to fail and begrudgingly if at all praise him when he succeeds. Cam has a short lease because of his skin color in some fans and analyst minds. Let's just recognize that. 


I will say it for the 100th time. The Panthers and the Saints played towards the end of last year, the very week that the Dolphins played the Jets.


The Panthers won the game after Newton threw a TD which essentially locked up a top 2 seed in the playoffs and beat the heated Saints. The Dolphins and specifically Tannehill had a horrible day offensively and pretty much locked themselves out the playoffs with the lost.


That VERY week, there was MORE threads and posters COMPLAINING about HOW Newton threw the game winning TD pass than there were EVEN MENTIONS about Tannehill on the Dolphins message board!!!!!


Let that sink in for a moment. The same week, somewhat similar situations as far as what was on the line.



There is more COMPLAINING about Newton in one week on the Huddle/Carolina, who's front office has done little to nothing to surround him with talent, than there is with the Bears/Chicago have with Jay Cutler, the 100+ million QB in his what 10th season and second mega deal who got to hand pick his offensive genius coach and franchise RB, talented line, talented TE, and 2 NO. 1 pro bowl level WRs.


Matt Ryan is the same thing.

Matt Stafford is the same thing.

And lets not even get started on people like Bradford, who the vast majority of St. Louis still think is a franchise QB because you know, he was Rookie of the Year once.

#3102681 If Cam had Romo's protection...

Think about it. The Cowboys have invested heavily in their O line. Their recent string of first round offensive linemen include Tyron Smith (2011), Travis Frederick (2013), and Zach Martin(2014). They had the cap space, draft position, and playmakers who were already for these behemoths and we simply haven't had those.


Somebody gets it. The Packers and Cowboys have invested in their offensive talent therefore they expect to get a return on said investment.


The Panthers have not invested in our offensive talent, yet the Huddle can't figure out why we can't score more than 14 points.

#3091783 Cam Newton on those last few play calls....

Posted by mcdougal on 16 November 2014 - 06:24 PM

I have a question. Why is it that every time hell freezes over and we accidentally score at TD, the defense goes right back on the field and gives up points? This is why I believe our defense is EXTREMELY overrated. When opposing offenses need to score, they can score at-will against the Panthers defense. What is the point of Rivera if his defense is not leading the way?


What is the purpose of drafting defense, after defense, and dumping resource after resource into it, if it can't get off the field when our struggling offense manages not to trip over themselves as they stumble into the end-zone?

#3062409 Will this be the off-season that we use resources on the offense?

Posted by mcdougal on 01 November 2014 - 12:42 PM

Will this be the offseason when we actually have resources?


Yet we had enough resources to get Luke, Star, Kony and to give Hardy 13+ million.


We have resources. We just choose to use them on defense.

#3051778 Jamie Dukes gets it

Posted by mcdougal on 28 October 2014 - 06:00 PM

Anybody with ANY sense saw this coming from a mile away.


The only way this year was going to be any kind of success was if the defense literally shut out opposing teams because this offense---which was below average last year---was getting worse overall.


Only in the Huddle, is it not understood that you cannot dump all your eggs into the defense basket and then rely on the offense to win games.

#3046801 Red Zone Efficiency

Posted by mcdougal on 26 October 2014 - 06:39 PM

When the Panthers walked off the field against the 49ers last year, a game in which the Panthers had multiple chances to score in the red zone and failed, everyone was of the opinion that the Panthers desperately needed to upgrade all aspects of the offense...


Come the draft and FA, the Panthers go backwards as it relates to the offense.


Come October, the Huddle cannot understand why we struggle in the RZ.



This season was not lost today...it was lost in April, May, and June.

#3046427 Why so many taboo subjects?

Posted by mcdougal on 26 October 2014 - 05:06 PM

The Patriots. Guess what Brady did today...30-35, nearly 400 yards and 5 TDs


When the Panthers have given Newton the kind of money, resources, and freedom that the Pats have given Brady, then we can compare.

#3046311 Why so many taboo subjects?

Elite defenses give their team a chance to win football games. Our D is far from elite, but they played pretty damn good today.


Elite defenses do more than give their team a chance to win.


That is the problem, our D is not elite. For ALL the allocation of resources they are eating up, THEY MUST be ELITE for us to win.


With the offensive talent we have, "pretty damn good" is not good enough.


The defense CANNOT give up game winning touch down drives, after your talent-deprived offense manages to score against the defending SB's elite defense.

#3045975 Why so many taboo subjects?

Posted by mcdougal on 26 October 2014 - 04:09 PM

The main reason we lost??? Look at the end of the day he didn't play well, but he walked off the field with a lead. The defense gets one stop and you aren't here making this idiotic thread.


Don't you just love Huddle logic: Complain about the offense all season long...when we get the chance to do something about it, the Front Office decides it is better to upgrade the defense instead...the Huddle cheers on the Front Office as they allocate more and more resources to the defense while ignoring an already mediocre offense...that is actually getting worse due to age and retirements...


The defense that the Panthers pour almost everything in...is ranked 27th and is giving up game winning touchdown drives...


The Huddle complains about the offense.


Rinse. Repeat.

3 times in the red zone and 6 pts...cam and the offense sucked today. Plain and simple


Yet in the off-season, you were one of the main people cheering on the FO as they continued to ignore the offense opting to sink more resources into the defense.


This offense was similarly mediocre last year and yet you continued to go along with Gettlemen's philosophy Dline, dline, dline.


In April was the time to correct and upgrade the offense...


Yet you continued to be President of the "dump resources into the defense, ignore the offense" club only to scream about the offense in October.

Settling for 3's now is just setting us up for a loss. Our D has done a great job and Shula an the offense letting them down in the redzone.

No excuses. 3 runs with Cam at the 2 needs to be the call.


The offense can never let us down unless they are turning the ball over to the ball.


This game, this season, this franchise is about the defense carrying the offense to wins and the playoffs and beyond. 

#3032169 Serious fugging question

Posted by mcdougal on 19 October 2014 - 10:59 PM

I think in our case we have spent 4 years funneling draft picks into the defense. The next draft needs to be offense heavy or someone needs to be fired. Rivera has had way to much time to mold the defense the way he wants it, its time to focus on your franchise QB or go somewhere else.


What makes it so bad is that the Huddle constantly complains about not having enough offensive power, looks as the FO go after defensive players and applause them, and then goes right back to complaining about the offense.


All week long we heard how it is up to the offense---who has been neglected for 4 years---to go into GB and control the game...meanwhile the elite defense just needs to "slow down" GB.


I never knew that crack was legal in NC.

#3032137 Soon, Very Soon

Posted by mcdougal on 19 October 2014 - 10:48 PM

the Panthers will spend all their cap on defense and 2 of the first 3 picks will be defense, the Huddle will cheer in April, and then complain about not hanging with Rodgers and Brees in September, while the offensive talent erodes away for a 5th straight year.
