Cason next? Cason seems to get beat as bad as Godfrey and draws a ton of defensive PI flags. My thought was normally , if Godfrey didn't give up a first down, then Cason would definitely do some holding to give up big yards on a penalty.
We want more nastiness? Let DG and RR do their job, JR. We can act scared all we want about lockeroom headaches, divas, egos, and thugs ... but if you sign the right ones it works. We've had some from time to time, but I want a whole TEAM of brawlers. And you know who else does? Ron Rivera.
I always figured there were too many catches in the contract and you're just borrowing someone else's property for a while.
Because people don't want to be stuck with the same car for a long period of time? Some people like driving something new every 2-3 years. If you can afford it, leasing is hands down the better thing to do.
That said, take care of it. Maintain it, keep it clean inside and out, don't race it, don't add mods, and plan your mileage. That way when you turn it in, they will have less ways to try and fine you.
The OP expects the media to swoon over Cam, that way the OP can get giddy like a school girl in love with Justin Bieber. Or the dad who beats the crap out of his son's little league coach because the coach didn't start his son, lol.
The Colts tanked for one year to get this guy. He has three legit WR's and an under performing yet very talented RB. Cam Newton has done more with less every year in the league and the media always brushes him off compared to Luck.
I'm sitting here watching NFL network and they answer the question "Which young QB do you start a team with?" , There's not even a Cam Newton honorable mention. I hope Cam shuts dem boys up today.
The problem is Jerry Richardson, and was Marty Hurney. It is not Ron Rivera. And can't be DG (he's still living under Hurney's mess).
Anyone watching the Broncos/49ers game? The announcers talked about how after they got their ass spanked in the SB, Fox and Elway got together to make changes and to make the team better. Guess what? THEY MADE THE CHANGES. Instead of saying, "We were just in the SB, we're RIGHT THERE, we are fine," they said, "We're not fine. Not even close. We're not ready to win a SB." Some things they did: sign DeMarcus Ware, sign Aqib Talib, sign Emanuel Sanders, etc.
Where do we hear "we're fine"? On this board every pre-season, lol.
I know we have money issues. But when they are gone, will DG, JR, and their lackey Rivera still make the same mistakes? Overpay guys who ... oh I don't know, had 10-12 sacks that previous season? And when they do overpay him, he doesn't see that number ever again? Will they continue to be stubborn and try to force the team into a certain mold they think it SHOULD be? Or will they look at themselves in the mirror and at the team the HAVE honestly, and realize the Panthers have NEVER been elite. Ever. EVER. NO back to back winning seasons? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Yes, Cam isn't Peyton Manning and never will be. But what happens when we pay all of our money to Cam, Keek, CJ, Kalil, and eventually KB, etc.? What happens is: we'll be forced to put avg talent around that pricey bunch.
JR is a great man. GREAT. He brought the NFL to Charlotte. But I'm sorry, he is a terrible football owner. His core philosophy is very outdated and though I have no proof of it, I'd bet GOOD MONEY he has his voice in DG's and RR's ears all the time.
Until JR is no longer the owner, until all of Hurney's mistakes are over and done with, and until we let Cam be Cam and stop trying to turn him into a pocket passer ... this team will continue to have one miracle season in a bunch of three lousy or avg ones.
We are not the Bronocs, we are not the Patriots, we are not the Colts, we are not Green Bay. Ask any fan in another part of the country how they see the Carolina Panthers and I bet you they see us how we see a team like the Titans.
Do you, Panthers fans, ever expect anything from the Titans? Of course not. Well, the NFL world expects nothing from us. So ... what are we going to do to change that?
