#3030713 Rivera is Losing the Team

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 19 October 2014 - 04:17 PM

I think Rivera is losing you. How his decisions affect you personally don't translate into the locker room.

The common denominators in all the games we have had poor showings in: The 3-4.

 

Which says to me that at the very least, Shula is incompetent against the 3-4.  Which I think is an inexcusable weakness in an NFL offensive coordinator.

 

I know it's not as simple as pinning it all on Shula - the players have to execute.  But when the entire offense fails to function against all three 3-4 defenses we have faced, the head man has to be held responsible in some way.




#3023631 The key to beating Aaron Rodgers and the Packers...

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 16 October 2014 - 12:26 PM

This is not a key to beating him.  It's a statistic.  And statistics mean nothing when it comes to an individual incident.

 

You might as well say the key to beating him is to score more points than he does.

 

Still interesting nonetheless.  Just thought the thread title was misleading.

i didn't know we had so many panther fans with PHDs

 

Even if they did have PHDs, it wouldn't be relevant.  Doctors have MDs.




#3023403 TV Map for Week 7

Rosario Dawson was Mike Rucker, wasn't it?

 

 

No.  Rucker only does our preseason games, and I definitely remember the Rosario Dawson incident was when Dante Rosario caught the last second game winner against San Diego to open the season in...I think 2008?




#3018931 1. KB 2. ? 3. Avant 4. Bersin 5. Brown

SMH.

 

Can we stop with all the receiver talk?  Could they be better?  Sure.  Are they the top issue on this team?  Not even close.  We need to fix the Secondary, the OLine, and the RBs before we even need to think about addressing the WR "issue".

 

Yeah, Cotchery dropped a game winning TD pass.  It was tipped by the defender right before it got to his hands, but he should have caught it anyways.  He didn't.  It happens.  Move on.




#3018525 Thomas Davis on Tie

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 13 October 2014 - 10:29 AM

BUT it is a loss. If we end up going 9-6-1 and if the Taints go 9-7, then we lose out on both the division AND wildcard. At this point, the only way to make the playoffs is to win the South.

 

Uhhh....that's wrong.  In that scenario, we win the division outright.




#3017240 Did both teams lose?

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 12 October 2014 - 07:07 PM

I wonder how often that happens?  I don't really keep up with who gets in by how much. 

 

I'm still confused how a tie might benefit us here, can someone lay out a plausible scenario?

 

It happened to the Packers just last year.

#2990613 several items from USA Today...Benji OROY so far

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 30 September 2014 - 12:52 PM

Just sayin all this Roy nonsense means squat to the Panthers unless they parlay those guys into a team to be reckoned with game in and out.  We got fuggin beat like a drum on Sunday.

 

That is very true, but if you take a moment and look at the rest of our roster, with few exceptions (Kalil, Olsen, Davis), it's a veritable who's who of UDFAs, Bargain-bin FA signings, and overpaid veterans past their prime.  The first problem will be fixed by the better drafting of Gettleman going forward, and the second and third will be fixed in tandem.  As our overpaid veterans get cut and/or have their contracts expire, we'll have more money to sign one or two key free agents per season.  Yes, even with Cam and Luke's contracts coming up.

 

 

If we're able to be a good team in the meantime, that's gravy.  I think we are capable of that, but these last couple weeks have definitely been a setback.  Injuries and loss of focus wreaking havoc.  But regardless, this team will keep improving over the next several years as our young stars continue to mature.

You know, for all the weaknesses (real or perceived) that we have on our team, it's easy to forget just how much talent we have at key positions - and how lucky we are to have them. 

 

Seriously.  Potentially a 3rd Rookie of the Year in the past 4 seasons?  And our guy who didn't get a ROY was probably 3rd or 4th in his category....  We really are lucky with these 1st round picks.

 

No matter how this season turns out, we still have one of the best, young cores in the NFL.  Our future is bright, folks.




#2962863 Leave your Hardy jerseys at home

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 18 September 2014 - 02:10 PM

It's conceivable the team might turn people with Hardy jerseys away.

 

Kinda doubt it, though.  There's been no word of any such thing.

 

It's conceivable only in the most literal sense of the word.  Practically, there's no chance in hell they would do something that stupid.  It would be stupid to do so in every single conceivable way.




#2957263 Voth talks to Kalil about Hardy, Gantt comments

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 16 September 2014 - 09:12 AM

It makes sense.  I mean, it's unfathomably stupid that our team is being put in a position where we have jockey media storylines against one another in hopes of avoiding a pitchfork-wielding mob of angry peasants.  Sure would be nice if some supposed "sports" journalists covering a football team would...I don't know...talk about the football played by that team?  I know, I know.  I have crazy dreams.




#2954778 Hardy yesterday

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 15 September 2014 - 10:46 AM

You seem to forget that Hardy was convicted ... his appeal notwithstanding.

 

 

But his appeal IS withstanding.  That's a really important point.  A bench trial is hardly an affordment of the due process of law.  It's actually a rather disgusting perversion of it that gives far too much power to single individuals that have their own interests.




#2935576 Kelvins TD

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 07 September 2014 - 10:05 PM

Rewatched game and KB has the attitude to go along with his ability. Hard to believe he made it to 28.

Between KB, Star, Luke, and Cam, don't know if any team has done better over last 4 drafts in 1st round

Him "skipping" that voluntary workout might have been the best thing that happened to us this offseason.

The streak ends this year.  Next question.
