#1987067 #4000 The Panthers and Charlotte

Posted by ladypanther on 07 November 2012 - 09:44 PM

When I asked for suggestions for post # 4000, one of the suggestions was that I talk about the Panthers staying in Charlotte (as opposed to moving to LA). So, here goes:

First, why are the Panthers in Charlotte? Mr. Richardson had a dream, which in reality seemed impossible. His dream was not about having a team that would make the most money. It was about pride in where he called home. It was about the people and places that had helped him become successful. It was about giving back. It was about telling the world about who we are and that we matter. It was about deserving the best. It was about being tired of being overlooked and discounted on the big stage. This was personal. It was a mission.

So, against all odds, the Carolina Panthers had life. Mr. Richardson promised to bring a Superbowl win to the Carolinas. While, he did not meet the time frame he wanted, it seems ludicrous to think that his goal has changed.

There has been some excitement but also much frustration with overall results. People have been trusted with the dream that proved unworthy. Still, this is not about failures, it is about the goal.

The goal is not to be in the biggest television market. It is not to be the franchise to make the most money. It is about bringing a championship to the Carolinas….for all the world to see……and for us to have a team to be proud of.

So, those who think Mr. Richardson will move this team do not understand why the Panthers are here in the first place.

I also think he has a plan that includes his dream living on beyond when he cannot.

We fans are often so impatient. Our happiness with the team often depends on the W-L record. But, if you are truly honest, we should be thankful every day that Mr. Richardson had a dream which included us.


#1983241 Need advice

Posted by ladypanther on 05 November 2012 - 08:43 PM

I should have done that for my 11.000th post...since it's the second time I've hit that mark, lol.

Talk about whether you think Cam is progressing as a leader or not, hasn't been mentioned much around here.

Congrats.


Not sure what my numbers were before. I have always been an active, but not voracious poster. Maybe I pick my spots more. But I always enjoy reading what you have to say. Guys seem to post more, interesting isn't it since you guys like to say women talk more.

#1981458 Smitty

Posted by ladypanther on 04 November 2012 - 10:51 PM

He has made some amazing catches, held on to the ball after some big hits, and he has juked and outrun many defenders. But, the best thing about Smitty is what we saw today, his huge block on the AE catch, giving AE about 25 more yards. We see this stuff every game from Smitty....he never quits. Does not matter who has the ball. He looked like he wanted to get AE a TD as much as he wanted one. Smitty is talented, a team player, and pound for pound, as tough as there is. I am glad is is a Panther.


#1981297 Props to AE

Posted by ladypanther on 04 November 2012 - 09:40 PM

Thought his teammates comments were interesting. Sounds like he works hard and is liked.


Then quarterback Cam Newton saw Edwards break open on first down, floated a pass that Edwards caught in full stride and by the time he was finally taken down, Edwards had gone from one 9-yard line to the other, an 82-yard reception that set up the touchdown that allowed the Panthers to end a five-game losing streak.
"Man, that was phenomenal for Armanti," said receiver Steve Smith, who threw a crushing downfield block on the play.
"They threw the ball to him and I was running like I had the ball. It's a guy that comes to work every day, he doesn't say hardly anything. He does his job. He's a team player, whether on scout team, throwing the ball or running routes. He's learning his craft. It came to fruition."
It looked natural. It looked easy. But looks, Smith said, can be deceiving.
"He ran a perfect route. The ball was thrown up there. He caught it," Smith said. "That's the hardest catch to ever make. A lot of people think a one-hand catch or this or that. The hardest catch to ever make for a wide receiver is when you're wide open and no one is around."
Edwards said he had been in for three plays before he made the game-changing catch. He's so quiet that offensive tackle Jordan Gross said he didn't realize Edwards had been in the huddle until he saw him catch Newton's pass and sprint downfield.
While talk shows and message boards have been cluttered with chatter about whether the Panthers made a mistake in trading a second-round draft choice in 2011 to draft Edwards in the third round in 2010, he has quietly done his work. When the Panthers drafted punt return specialist Joe Adams last spring, it seemed a signal that Edwards' time was running out.
Instead, Edwards helped deliver a victory to a team desperately in need of one.
"It's great," Edwards said when asked about his long catch. "I've known how to be patient, wait my turn. When my number is called, I've got to do my best to help the team."
It wasn't lost on his teammates.
"Not only is it big for him, it's big for us," Newton said. "That game was right on the cusp of someone making a play. Armanti's number was called. He was not even hesitating. He stepped right in."
Head coach Ron Rivera said he has talked with Edwards about his situation, praising him for his willingness to prepare as he does while knowing he may not play. Edwards had a good week in practice, Rivera said, making a couple of diving catches that caught everyone's attention.
"I've been feeling good about it all season," Edwards said. "It's just a matter of waiting until my number is called. I go to practice every day and practice like I'm starting."
As Edwards was leaving the locker room early Sunday evening, tight end Greg Olsen was talking about what the Appalachian State legend had done.
"It was huge," Olsen said. "That was probably the play of the game. We're backed up. The momentum is teetering a little bit there.
"He runs a great route, Cam delivers it right on point and that was huge. I'm happy for him. He's a hard worker. He doesn't say a lot. He comes each day and keeps preparing and biding his time. That's all you can ask."

#1981246 Panthers win - great, but........

Posted by ladypanther on 04 November 2012 - 09:17 PM

Dwill and JStew set the record (2 backs with 1100 yds in a season) with a lead blocker. I think they had 399 yds against Tampa in a Mon night game (2008). Want to see Chud put Tolbert in the backfield with them. Please. Someone send him this post.


#1981193 So no posts about leadership?

Posted by ladypanther on 04 November 2012 - 09:01 PM

Cam was a leader of men today, he inspired our defense to finally do their job for 4 quarters.



uh....not sure I can give Cam credit for the D play today. D was on the field a long time today. Since the offense did not put this game away....I think credit for the D is someone/something else.


#1981169 Panthers defense is turning it on

Posted by ladypanther on 04 November 2012 - 08:55 PM

Beason's problem this year is that he was trying to play hurt. Hope he gets healthy...know he wants to play the middle....but Luke seems to have that spot. Can you imagine Luke, TD, Beason...all healthy?


D still has a lot of work to do. Gave up too many yards and too many receivers wide open. What I liked was the inspired D line play...and there were some ferocious hits.

Still....like the progress...especially from young players.


#1981132 Need to get this forum back on track

Posted by ladypanther on 04 November 2012 - 08:42 PM

This forum is a joke, this new rule makes it even worse.

Shoulda just stuck to the post count rule in the first place and users like myself wouldn't have to call trolls idiots.

#huddlelogicFTL


You have been complaining all over the place. Take a breath, read a little, do not post for a while. Then, start anew. Set a goal to be a quality poster. Oh, and a life advice thing...take responsibility for your actions. Always.


#1978360 Official Panthers - Redskins Gameday Thread

Posted by ladypanther on 04 November 2012 - 12:30 PM

I know this team can win this game and I know they should. (As with several previous games...all but the Giants game). I am putting this squarely on the coaching staff. They have to have a game plan that the players can believe in, and Rivera has to show he has learned from his previous mistakes. (And Chud needs to call plays like a grown up NFL OC)


#1972877 If I Hear Any Good Trades Being Declined...

Posted by ladypanther on 30 October 2012 - 07:07 PM

Unless some team offers an insane trade....I say no trades. There are holes on this team....mostly in coaching. There is also a lot of talent. I hope JR has the final say on any moves.


#1971292 Potential Head Coaching candidates on display tonight.

Posted by ladypanther on 29 October 2012 - 07:40 PM

I want Rob Ryan or Rex Ryan (if he is fired).....


No Ryans please.


#1968519 Kuechly = better defense

Posted by ladypanther on 28 October 2012 - 04:50 PM

He led the team with 10 tackles. 1 for a loss.


#1968394 Major Changes.

Posted by ladypanther on 28 October 2012 - 04:27 PM

Shula should know Cam better than anyone. Maybe he could set him up for success. He was the HC at Alabama...so he has been in the spotlight and has been under pressure. Couldn't be any worse.
