#3142113 Andrew Hawkins Response to Controversy

Posted by xerxes on 18 December 2014 - 04:56 PM

I was a bit surprised there wasn't a thread on this already. If I missed one, my bad.


We can debate the virtue of athletes getting involved in conversations like this, but I for one would be proud to have a player and a man like this on my team:

Luke needs to stop making commercials and start making plays.

Luke leads the league in tackles....

#3039905 34 defense: a solution to a problem

Posted by xerxes on 24 October 2014 - 11:56 AM

Sadly it's not like flipping a light switch.

It's more like converting an engine from manual transmission to automatic. It seems like they're similar, but the moving pieces are very different. And if you want to do that anyway, you're better off buying a new car.

#3038604 Anonymous offensive assistant coach on Panthers D

The big plays are what take us from a bad defense to a terrible defensive.

With the way Cam has played, we could actually win a bunch of games with a bad defense.

#3038179 A guy on my street, 14 miles from BofA stadium...

Dude has had a Patriots sticker/cling thing on his mailbox for like 5 years. Last week as I was driving by I see a fresh out of the pack Seahawks flag hanging from his front porch. I have only met the guy once. Could this be the worst case of Bandwagonism in history?

The Pats cling is still on his mailbox.

Maybe your resident Patriots bandwagoner married a Seahawks bandwagon fan? God help us if they start breeding. 

#3033019 In my younger days.....

Wait, your group got pissed at your LT for following the orders he was given and upholding the oath he pledged? Not only is your analogy bad, but I have zero respect for those who, because of their own distaste for political or military policies, decide that they are not bound to them or use them as excuses for their own poor judgment. It's the military, for fug's sake, OBEYING ORDERS IS THE fuging JOB DESCRIPTION.

I think you're missing the choices here. There's not a scenario where there's no punishment. The choice the LT had was between handling it himself or passing it up the chain for someone else to handle. There's also the subtext the reason he passed it up the chain was to cover his own ass not necessarily for the benefit of the unit.

If it were all black and white, anybody could be a leader.

Now for the actual Panther relation. I haven't seen the team give up yet, so I still feel it's more a talent issue than effort. I would also argue they're actually trying too hard. They're so worried about giving up the big play, they're tight and not playing loose. Defensive is mostly read and react and they're thinking too much.

Being the best team in the NFL South is like being the best looking female left in the bar at 3 am.....isn't saying much.

Still gets laid.

I'll take 8-7-1 and a trip to the playoffs.

Edited cause I can't count.

#3025834 Silatolu, Blackburn, Fozzy Among Players Out Sunday

Posted by xerxes on 18 October 2014 - 12:15 PM

Im only disappointed about Fozzy. I thought he played well given the opportunities. 

No Bene hurts. We can use all the secondary help we can get.

#3025315 Percy Havin to Jets! Wow!

Posted by xerxes on 17 October 2014 - 05:52 PM

I swear, every time any other team signs or trades for a guy, it's guaranteed people will be on here screaming 'WHY DIDN'T WE DO THAT?!!!"

It doesn't matter whether it's a good move, a bad move, someone we need, someone we don't need, what the cap hit would be (apparently we don't have to worry about that) or whether it makes any actual sense.

All that seems to matter is SOMEBODY DID SOMETHING!

Whether or not it was a smart move or a move we could have afforded is apparently irrelevant.

(and people wonder why teams don't listen to fans)

Some people just respond to movement.



#3022765 The Conditioning of Star and KK- Is this going to be a longtime issue?

Posted by xerxes on 15 October 2014 - 05:21 PM

I don't think it's conditioning. I believe the coaching staff has a philosophical belief that DTs should be rotated frequently. Going back to 2012, they've never had a DT take more than 67 percent of snaps (Dwan Edwards). 





#3022753 Top franchise cornerstones

Posted by xerxes on 15 October 2014 - 05:12 PM

Accolades are not a zero sum game. Believe it or not both Luck and Cam can be great QBs...

#3021124 Thomas Davis "Unacceptable"

Posted by xerxes on 14 October 2014 - 04:18 PM

In short......play Short.

He's played 2 less than snaps than Dwan, and 13 more than Star. We believe in rotating DTs.

I mean the Panthers could name him the starter to make us feel better, but he'd play the same number of snaps.

#3015922 No game balls for a tie?

Posted by xerxes on 12 October 2014 - 04:13 PM

Bengals haven't lost at home in the last 11 games. In this case, I'll take a tie everyday of the week and twice on Sundays.
