#2847478 Kelvin Benjamin getting some love

Posted by FootballMaestro on 12 July 2014 - 08:28 AM

The Kelvin Benjamin portion of the CBS article (another poster provided) was sort of a back handed compliment.


And though he pretends to know the Panthers well, he appears not.


The Ealy portion was okay.


I'll just leave it at that.







#2834116 David Newton: Cam is earning respect

Posted by FootballMaestro on 28 June 2014 - 09:21 AM

Back door compliment, I see. Don't remember  Cam having any off field problem which needed maturing and leadership. Enough of this nonsense.


I know what you mean.


Cam had the natural progression of any young QB (his may have been even faster). But since the media, so many times tried to paint him [wrongly] in a negative light and over analyze everything little he did and didn't do, we many times inadvertently justify it by bringing up his "maturity and leadership", as it's any different for Cam as any other player.


Now on the contrary, we can also be a bit sensitive about that ourselves, as Cam has matured in certain aspects (as he should).


But I'm sure one you're problems is, when it's said as if it's some big surprise, and/or if was never going to happen (or he came so far). That's where the hyperbole comes in.


Ironically, some folks are genuine (probably Top Dog) when doing/saying this, and other do use it as a back handed compliment (such as many in the media).

#2833947 NFL Experts Analysts and Writers that are going to hurt their credibility thi...

Posted by FootballMaestro on 27 June 2014 - 10:06 PM

You say that as if its some secret that trying to cover too much is a problem. Thats why some doctors are Neurologists and others are Pathologists and so and so forth. Here's the thing though, the NFL is just one field. I disagree that its too much to ask for a guy to follow one professional sport. All of the soccer media seems to know clearly which teams are favorites dont they?


Now back to your first statement responding with "No". What you said is mathematically impossible. There is no computational way youre going to explain to me how "everyone" is below average is there?

with all due respect. . Im surprised you didnt know that.


"Everyone" was a euphemism/generalization. You know that.


The point is/was: Most of these guys are bad at predictions, so why bother starting a thread documenting all the bad predictions. As I said previously, it would last for days, take up multiple pages.


We just like to go after the guys who are the biggest ignoramuses pertaining to the Panthers. You know; the ones that really stick their necks out to knock the Panthers or it's players (for no reason), and are totally wrong, while showing they know absolutely nothing about what they're talking about.


To be honest. Sports commentary is not in the actual prediction. Cause you're going to be wrong most times. It's more in the story, background, logic, reasons, experiences, analogies and knowledge that the commentator or analyst uses. That's what we enjoy.

Sorry, you have to be taller than me to qb in Charlotte.

Sent from my XT1080 using CarolinaHuddle mobile app


I don't think that posters realizes, Seattle schemes around Wilson's deficiencies (in the pocket), and he needed that run game and defense to spoon feed him into the NFL.


The Seahawks, always ran the ball more than they threw it, relying less on Wilson. Newton started off throwing the ball more than Carolina ran it, cause he was more ready. Last year they may have ran it more. But you're going to see some changes, I think this year. We'll see.


It'll be curious to see how Wilson does, with out Golden Tate saving his bacon? Wonder if Percy Harvin will be that guy now?

Lol take the homer glasses off bud

If you replaced Cam with Wilson we still would have made the playoffs last year.

Statistically (wins, stats, championships), Wilson was better than Newton last year and really there is no argument that you can make to prove otherwise.

I don't know why everything has to be a competition with Panther fans, drop the butthurt persona and give credit when credit is due.


If you believe that, OK :startle:


Sure. SMH

What's your point? He got to the big game, that's what matters.

Our defense also carried us many times last year, so your argument doesn't really hold much water.

Without our defense we would have been at best a six win team.


My point is: Defense or no defense; the Panthers can't win with out Cam.


The Seahawks can win with out Wilson, and do many times.


No brainer; not hard.


#2829698 Mike Singletary be trolling yo

Posted by FootballMaestro on 25 June 2014 - 08:49 AM

I'm too tired to rage. :(


Well, get used to "Ragin". Lol


Cause the Panthers (due to the jettisoning of the "All World WR Corps", and a "Lucky Year" last year) will be receiving a lot of disrespect, both individually and as a team for the upcoming season.


The Good thing: Panthers can't rest on their laurels, soaking up last years ahem success, thinking they actually accomplised something.

#2829673 Mike Singletary be trolling yo

Posted by FootballMaestro on 25 June 2014 - 08:32 AM

I was going to post this, but figured that it wasn't even worth it.





But then the other way to look at it is: If no one post anything football/Panther related on the board (no matter how stupid, or how much we disagree with it), what's their to talk about outside of a few "non stupid" things?


So hey, why not? Lol

#2828688 Zero Panthers Rookies on All-Time Rookie Team

Posted by FootballMaestro on 24 June 2014 - 10:02 AM

Toughest competition: Sammy Baugh, Bob Waterfield, Otto Graham, Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Ryan, Russell Wilson.




lol wut


Yeah, a few of those names (Russell Wilson, Matt Ryan) are hilarious indeed. LOL


And of course, Big Ben did virtually nothing on a stacked team besides hand the ball off to Bettis (was it him). Lol

#2828687 Zero Panthers Rookies on All-Time Rookie Team

Posted by FootballMaestro on 24 June 2014 - 10:01 AM

Didn't look at or read the article.


But don't worry. They'll change many of those names and replace them with current Panters (Cam, Luke, Star and Kelvin Benjamin--Yes), when the Panthers win the Super Bowl next year or the season after. It'll be revisionist history (again).

#2827875 More WR hate for the WR Corps

Posted by FootballMaestro on 23 June 2014 - 10:43 AM

The media seems to equate having poor WRs = poor team when our WRs weren't all that good last year. Cam was our whole offense anyway.


See, this is part of the problem. 


Many in the media are Loathe to give Cam any credit, and acknowledge that he was the majority of the Panthers offense last year (certainly the main reason for most of it's success). 


This one of the main reasons why there is a clear disconnect between how the National Media (who doesn't follow the team) views the receivers/offense, compared to Panthers fans. It's this, combined with the fact,  the receivers last year were nothing to write home about to begin with (as most of the run game, outside of Cam). 

#2827056 The Worst Offense in the NFL

Posted by FootballMaestro on 22 June 2014 - 12:08 PM

I dont understand how one could not see the changes made and legitimately think the offense looks worse on paper. We completely renovated a lackluster receiver group. We got help at TE. We habe a full and healthy backfield. We strenghthened the interrior of the line. We got a well respected offensive mind to join the staff as well. We just need someone to fill in for Gross. That is thr only downgrade.


This is the difference between someone knowing, following, and (even) believing in the team, as opposed to most bloggers, critics, and national journalist, who have NO IDEA what their talking about pertaining to Panther games, coaches, players, management, and off season moves/improvements. 

#2827053 The Worst Offense in the NFL

Posted by FootballMaestro on 22 June 2014 - 12:03 PM

I stay on bleacher for this reason...made a name just to bash any and everyone who wants to bash the panthers with bias contradictory statements...the people on there have a sever hatred for cam(including the writers) and they never cease to amaze me with their ignorance...so since their soul objective is to bash the panthers and talk about how wonderful teams like Denver, NE, and SF are, my soul objective is to bash any and every doubter I see (fair weather panther fans included) and bring them down a level with real information...can't stand it dude they refuse to give credit to our squad and when they do it's usually to the front seven on d and that's becuz that can't be denies with 60 sacks registered...lol and they still think luke is overrated jus the way they feel about cam... But I will continue to back my team and as long as I'm alive I will continue to thrash their DA so called sports analyst who jerk off to stats and never seem to entertain that football is a team sport and sometimes your still great with sub par stats..
Is now
OVER !!effing bleacher report!!!


I find most fans, bloggers, and especially writers know very little about the Panthers, and write stuff that has nothing to do with the actual team. They just don't follow the Panthers well enough to really know what's happening. 


Any Panther fan who watched the team last year, knew the receiving corps and OL wasn't much to write home about to begin with. So now, because the Panthers lose Gross (albeit a long time top caliber LG) and Smitty and the rest of the receiving corps, they now feel the Panthers are doomed. No so fast. 


As long as the Panthers have Cam out there, and any decent set of receivers, along with last years defense, the Panthers will be an ominous threat in the league. And if their receivers are a bit of an improvement over last year (which many of us, think they will be), and the OL can scheme a bit better (particularly on longer passing situations, to make up for their deficiencies), the team and offense, is going to surprise a lot of the so called "doubter/experts" out there. Lol


Unfortunately, nothing new. 

#2826975 Cotchery on Mac Attack

Posted by FootballMaestro on 22 June 2014 - 09:24 AM

I am with you.  For a veteran, he made a lot of rookie mistakes with his mouth.  I think people are loyal to him and not seeing his impact for what it was. You have to look at the ripples he caused as much as the splashes.  The money situation made this move a no-brainer, but people still criticized the GM.  Smitty had many good qualities, but being a teammate was not always one of them.


Cotchery and Avant are class acts and they have good hands.  Benjamin is a freak.  Underwood has speed. We are better off.




And when Gettlemen saw the $$ situation, along with the degradation in skills and big mouth, attitude, locker room bully/ball hawk, it became a no brainer. 

#2826957 Michael Vick on running quarterbacks: I started it all

Posted by FootballMaestro on 22 June 2014 - 08:52 AM

What every happened to Fran Tarkenton?


And Randal Cunningham, was a much more complete QB, willing passer than Vick. 


However, considering he may be on the twilight of his career, Vick is now placing his career in perspective when being asked, and I have no problem with that. 


This guy maybe a back up next season. Can you blame him?
