I am working the Charger/Bengal game at the moment and didn't get a chance to watch the game this morning. Could anyone provide a decent recap of our game and what went down? MVP? Big plays? Were we exposed at all on defense? What happened on Cam's interceptions?
Thanks! Keep Pounding! 8 straight and feeling great!
If you don't have NFL Rewind to check it out tomorrow, I'd just check out the play by play or the drive chart. You'll get a good sense of what went down, and it will give you a more complete picture of what happened than anything you'll get on here.
So I started a new job here in Asheville recently. Yesterday they asked me if I could come in tonight and work until close. I didn't have anything going on so I said "sure." Well this morning my family in Charlotte calls me and surprises me with tickets to the game tomorrow, and they want to tailgate in the morning, which means I would have to leave tonight. :
So do I call in to work and tell them I can't come because of the Panther surprise, or do I bite the bullet and look like a good employee and skip the game? I'm leaning towards calling in, because I don't get a chance to go to many games because of logistics cost. Plus we're good this year. Plus it's a surprise Christmas gift.
The trouble here is that you're trying to appease the external expectations of your boss and your family. Basically, you're trying to decide who you want to disappoint less. The issue with externally focused decision making is that you'll feel bad either way you decide. If you skip work to go to the game, you'll feel like a bad employee. If you go to work and skip the game, you'll feel ungrateful to your family.
Ideally, you should make the decision based on your internal values. Ask yourself, what actions would I take where I would be disappointed with myself? Not your family or your boss, but what would you personally be disappointed with? Another way to put it is, what would the person I want to be do? When you make a decision consistent with your internal values and beliefs, you won't feel bad about how others respond to that decision.
So, this kind of an awkward thread but, I can't keep this juicy news to myself.. A player who I will not name told me that the Panthers coaching staff realized at halftime during the Dolphins game that the plays being called on offense were simply not cutting it. I was told that QB Coach Ken Dorsey was heavily involved in play calling. Based on the second half of the Dolphins game what do you think of the offensive play calling? I think the play calling was perfect, it got our offense moving. It was just what we needed at the right time.
I understand if you're skeptical but, I was received this info from a player who I highly trust.
Non story. RR has said multiple times in interviews that play calling is a collaborative process with the offensive coaches.
Skipper, Dorsey, Matsko all influence the calls based upon what they're seeing on the field. Maybe Dorsey saw something the others didn't and pointed it out, but I don't take that as a knock on Shula. I take that as a plus he's able to work with his coaches.
I'm mentally exhausted after the game. It's pretty sad almost. My dad would always give me poo for yelling at the TV when I was living at home.
I'm only 25 so every now and then I go back home and watch football on Sundays. I work out of my house and my job is 24/7 so it's nice to get away. My dad, 2 sundays ago said I shouldn't get so worked up over grown men playing a sport. He has a point but I can't help it. I love football and i love the Panthers.
Anyone else ever have to justify to someone why they get so worked up over these games? If so what do u say?
It's primal man. This is our tribe. If they don't get it, you can't explain it.
After the week one loss to Seattle Steve Smith said something that not too many people remember, but most people(including Huddlers) just laughed it off and said Steve was just being Steve... looks like he might have been on to something...
