#2910798 Well it's almost unanimous, Panthers will "free fall"

Posted by gettlemanjack on Yesterday, 06:38 PM

The thing that get's me is that I can't seem to find anyone actually backing the Panthers in the media. After 12-4 and I figure there would be one schmuck saying...with that defense and Cam they should find their way into the playoffs.

If anyone has a counterexample please post it.


here ya go. NFL.com article saying we have both the 3rd best ceiling and the 3rd best floor in the NFC...

Highest Floor:
10-6 Seattle
9-7 Saints
8-8 Carolina, Green Bay
7-9 Arizona, Philadelphia
6-10 San Francisco, Chicago

Highest Ceiling:
14-2 Seattle
13-3 Green Bay
12-4 Carolina, San Francisco, New Orleans, Philadelphia

#2909692 Building the Perfect NFL QB: Cam has Adonis-like qualities

Posted by gettlemanjack on 25 August 2014 - 11:11 PM

"Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers):
Cam Newton looks like he walked straight out of central casting into the NFL. At 6'5" and 245 pounds, he's muscular, athletic, flexible and solid enough to withstand the beating an NFL quarterback will take in today's game. Newton is a great athlete, and that adds to this, as core strength is incredibly important to quarterbacks taking hits, breaking tackles in and out of the pocket and torquing their bodies to power big throws. Newton has Adonis-like qualities in terms of the ideal build and body for an NFL quarterback."

#2904755 Pete Prisco (CBS Sports Senior NFL Columnist ): I think I was wrong about Kel...

Posted by gettlemanjack on 23 August 2014 - 02:56 AM

comments on KB vs the Pats:

Pete Prisco @PriscoCBS
I think I was wrong about Kelvin Benjamin

Lead National NFL Writer For Bleacher Report Aaron Nagler:
Aaron Nagler @ AaronNagler
I will admit - Kelvin Benjamin looks ten times better than I thought he would this early on.

Assistant Editor for BuffaloBillsDraft.com Joe Marino:
Joe Marino @ TheJoeMarino
Kelvin Benjamin has really looked better than I anticipated he would.


This is what Pete Prisco had to say about the Panthers drafting KB:
"Kelvin Benjamin is a big receiver, but I liked others more...Grade: D"


#2904748 Interesting Point of View from Opponent

Posted by gettlemanjack on 23 August 2014 - 02:22 AM

Here's the thing. Intellectually I understand just how pointless preseason final outcomes are in actually evaluating teams, but watching my team get destroyed just hurts man. It just hurts. I walked out of that stadium feeling like Johnny Cash...


skake it off, man

or a new term I like that I saw a young player use: gotta just "flush it"

#2902417 CBS Sports NFL Predictions: 2014 Panthers wideouts better than in 2013

the same guy predicted Luke would win Defensive Player of the Year before last season started:

#2902383 CBS Sports NFL Predictions: 2014 Panthers wideouts better than in 2013

Posted by gettlemanjack on 22 August 2014 - 01:05 PM

...
Greg Olsen (816 yards) was the leading receiver
...
You'd think Carolina saw Calvin Johnson and Brandon Marshall depart the way Ted Ginn (556 yds) and Brandon LaFell (627 yds) are breathlessly mentioned as losses. Enter Kelvin Benjamin , Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant.
...
For as great a leader as Steve Smith was/is, and for as much as he was the face of the franchise, adding 6'5" Benjamin and sneaky touchdown machine Cotchery (10 touchdowns last year!) will make this a more dynamic, efficient and flat-out better unit in 2014.

#2901971 Eli Manning looking like poo again

Posted by gettlemanjack on 22 August 2014 - 02:05 AM

Three games into a pivotal preseason, Manning is still struggling...still throwing interceptions in every practice....For three weeks, the Giants have been a listless mess on offense.

#2901563 Philly Brown says he is "Absolutely" Carolina's fastest player

Posted by gettlemanjack on 21 August 2014 - 05:43 PM

David Newton:

I asked Brown if he was Carolina's fastest player.
"Absolutely," he said.
...
His official 40 time at the combine..was listed as 4.51 seconds, which he disputes. He believes he's closer to the unofficial time of 4.37, and insists he's in the record book at Ohio State with a 4.3.
...
"I'm a guy that can punt return, kick return, play offense and do whatever else you want me to do," Brown said. "I can hold up the gunner and I can play the gunner. I think they like that I'm versatile, and I'm willing to do it. Wherever they put me, I'm just going."

#2901302 #1 in the South again

Posted by gettlemanjack on 21 August 2014 - 02:27 PM

It matters because its directly applicable to how big your fan base is. When I look at that data year after year I can tell how many fair weather fans each team has. I can tell how many youre losing or gaining and get signs as to where they are going.

that would be an incorrect way to look at it. Here is how the teams did from the 2013 Forbes list to the 2014 Forbes list. The Falcons jumped the Saints, despite the Falcons going 4-12 and the Saints going 11-5. Also, note the Bucs are higher than the Falcons and Saints despite the Bucs being irrelevant for the last decade while the Falcons and Saints have been doing very well in recent history (Falcons went to playoffs in 2002, 2004, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012 and Saints went to playoffs in 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013)

NFC South
$1.25 billion - Panthers (up from $1.06 billion)
$1.23 billion - Bucs (up from $1.07 billion)
$1.13 billion - Falcons (up from $0.93 billion)
$1.11 billion - Saints (up from $1.00 billion)

Note how those metro areas rank by GDP
#10 in US - Atlanta ($295 billion)
#21 in US - Charlotte ($137 billion)
#24 in US - Tampa ($120 billion)
#40 in US - New Orleans ($85 billion)

http://en.m.wikipedi...an_areas_by_GDP

New Orleans doesn't have near the wealth of the rest of the cities in the NFC South yet their football team is right up with the rest of the NFC South in value. That is a strong fanbase and a big football town. Meanwhile, Atlanta is by far the wealthiest city in the NFC South while their team isn't....that is a crappy fanbase.


#2900932 Pros and Cons of our 2014 schedule

Posted by gettlemanjack on 21 August 2014 - 09:45 AM

Play in Minnesota November 30th... Could be ugly outside and then those games are usually a toss up

Playing @Minnesota makes no difference. We are simply a much better football team, our front 7 can handle Peterson, and their young weapons (Paterson, Rudolph, and vets Jennings and Simpson) will have Cassel or the physically weak rookie Bridgewater throwing to them in the cold in Mike Zimmers new passing offense. We should win that football game on paper. Easily.


-we get 14 days to prepare for @Minnesota, while they only get 7


should be between 10°F and 40°F, likely freezing, with a 14% chance of snow and winds in the 5 to 15 mph range.

Avg temp for Nov 30 in Minneapolis:

#2900897 Pros and Cons of our 2014 schedule

Posted by gettlemanjack on 21 August 2014 - 09:09 AM

PROS

-No team has a bye week before playing us (no team has a bye week before playing the Falcons either), while both the Saints and Bucs have two teams with bye weeks before playing them. The two teams with bye weeks before playing the Saints have them in the two straight weeks before we play the Saints in New Orleans, wearing them out for us (Saints host Ravens for MNF with Ravens coming off bye week before Saints play @Pittsburgh six days later with the Steelers coming off a bye week, then the Saints host us). The Bucs also have to play back-to-back games against teams coming off bye weeks: Falcons then @Redskins

-we get 14 days to prepare for @Minnesota, while they only get 7

-we get 11 days to prepare for our MNF game @Philadelphia, while they only get 8

-we get 7 days to prepare for Lions in BOA, while they only get 6


CONS

-we get 6 days to prepare for the Falcons at BOA, while they get 7

-we get 7 days to prepare for Steelers at BOA, while they get 10


OTHER GAMES OF NOTE

-the Bucs and us both get 10 days to prepare for each other for the season opener @Tampa

-the Saints and us both only have 4 days to prepare for each other for Thursday Night Football at BOA


what else?
