#2883081 Pre-season Game 1: Winners and Losers

Posted by Sloth on 08 August 2014 - 10:48 PM

Oh, and as someone who used to stick up for Josh Thomas, it's probably time for him to gtfo. He's not good and is getting worse.

 

Norman was his usual "bark after getting burnt" self, but had a nice, pretty, easy INT. Who knows with him.

Webb needs to climb the depth chart to behind DA

 

No worries there. I think Webb could have died in the middle of the second quarter and still knocked Blanchard down the chart.

Is PJ good or is it all the UNC homers on here

 

Little of both.




#2823437 US Patent Office cancels Redskins trademark

Posted by Sloth on 18 June 2014 - 01:21 PM

when will it stop though? I just think it is a very slippery slope when you have uncle sam telling a business owner to change the name of his company because it may or may not offend someone. And for you supporters of a name change, yall do realize you are the vast MINORITY in this matter? I get sick of being called an ignorant bigot, (which is completely opposite of who I am), just because I am not a part of the 15-20% of the population who whine long and loud enough to get my way.

 

I went to school a hundred years ago at High Point Central HS and was a Bison. You want to know what happened to the Bison that used to roam the continental US? The Indians ran them off cliffs!

 

I am in no way, shape, or form a racist of any kind. It's the slippery slope of taking a word literally and then finding someone to be offended by it... It would, however, help if the men in this country took off their girlfriend's skinny jeans and let those puppies breath for a minute.

 

That is all. Go Panthers.

 

I don't think you or most who wants the team to stay the course with the name are racist.

 

Understand though that things change, including language. Things that were/are acceptable to say can change. If it were the Washington Braves, no one would be saying anything. If they went the Florida State route and worked with a local tribe and used their name with blessings, no one would be saying anything. The term Redskins originates from a slur and the only reason it's stood for this long is that the Native Americans who were offended by it never had the little clout they do right now.

 

This is the most overused example but it does work: Start up a team and name it the Blackskins and try to trademark it (provided you make it long enough to file).




#2823356 US Patent Office cancels Redskins trademark

Also this was a suit brought forth to the USPTO trials and appeals board. Nobody in the Government went after Snyder. This isn't NObama's facist/commie push to pussify America or whatever, these happen all the time and this one in particular only lost in the past because they were ruled to have waited too long after reaching the age of majority for the suit/complaint to proceed.

 

Anyways, the term "Redskins" was found to violate the whole subsection "which prohibits registration of marks that may disparage persons or bring them into contempt or disrepute" which yeah, of fuging course it does.

 

Nice to see them do the right thing.




#2816209 Cam wants more than what Kap got- Ian Rap...

Posted by Sloth on 11 June 2014 - 12:34 AM

With the way that we've asked him to carry/piggyback the offense for three years while throwing most resources at the defense instead, you better believe he's going to make more than Kap.

 

  • Better passer
  • Better stats on a lesser team (to begin with - we're getting there)
  • Not only a very good QB for us, he typically hauls up our rushing game from lol to decent
  • As mentioned, we drafted a franchise QB then spent the next few seasons throwing everything at the defense and relying on Newton to generate any/all offense
  • Bus Cook

 

He's going to get massively paid.




#2779992 Grade Our 2014 Draft

Posted by Sloth on 10 May 2014 - 10:43 PM

C+/B-

 

A lot of looking towards 2015/2016. Hate that we only managed to snag one WR in one of the deeper classes in memory while watching other teams load for bear to help their QB. Time for Newton to piggyback the O again.

 

Benjamin is a project - albeit a reeaaalllyy promising one - who we're going to hope/pray can become a WR1 in a few months. That or Underwood/King is that guy (ahaha) and we give KB some time to get his feet under him. I like that we rolled the dice with him and think he's got a decent to good chance to be good.

 

Ealy I get due to value and the fact that our DE's are getting so expensive we're going to need to start selling kidneys to pay their contracts. Sucks that he's probably not going to contribute much in 2014, but again will probably look brilliant heading into 2015.

 

The OG pick.. ok. We're flush with Guards but he's probably better and has a good chance to start. Any help on the OLine welcome I guess.

 

Not impressed with the UNC Safety at all. He looks like a worse version of Sherrod Martin. Woo.

 

RB.. I guess ok? He's not going to see the field unless there is a surprise cut or Williams and Tolbert both die in a freak meteor strike or something. At least we're finally smart about when we're drafting RBs. Will probably look better heading into 2015.

 

CB - I liked that we got a little aggressive to land someone we at least sort of liked. No idea about this guy. Hoping for the best.

 

Just a very meh draft because of how much focus on future seasons there was. Not meant to be a slight on Gettleman, and he's probably going about this the right way for long term success, but I don't really think we look much better on paper heading into 2014. Hope the Gods of the waiver wire smile on us in a few months.

If you're at a movie, hop on the internet and go to a forum dedicated to that movie, you don't get to whine about spoliers. Turn off your phone, dry your tears and watch the fuging movie.




#2722164 NFC scout: Evans made Manziel / AFC Exec: Ebron, ASJ overrated.

Posted by Sloth on 31 March 2014 - 11:39 AM

<slothdream>

ASJ falls to the end of the second round and Dave Gettleman himself sprints to the podium less than six seconds after we are on the clock to select him.

</slothdream>




#2718130 Ron Rivera: Panthers may not need number 1 WR in 2014

Posted by Sloth on 27 March 2014 - 09:18 AM

Just wanted to pop in and lol a little at the idea of making Olsen the passing centerpiece.

 

Bus Cook is going to absolutely murder us if we want to keep Newton. Entering Cam's fourth year, we still haven't given him anything to work with and are building the O like he's Kevin Kolb. The rage over his contract number here will be absolutely epic.




#2700856 So Walter from Walter Football hates Steve Smith.. Holy cow.

Hmm. One of the best GMs in the league vs Walterfootball. I'm a little divided.




#2700163 Captain Tweet on players leaving

So all we need is for 4th year Cam Newton to be as good as the GOAT and we've got this.




#2700147 Continuity for Cam?

Posted by Sloth on 16 March 2014 - 09:53 AM

Cam isn't elite. I love the guy and think he's really good, but he's not elite. Bringing up things Payton or Brady can do doesn't mean much of anything. Also, the clownshoes way we are handling this whole "franchise qb" situation isn't really helping Newton's chances of reaching that level.

 

When we hired our bad offensive coordinator it was argued that continuity was very important for Newton's development. When we re-upped his contract, the same argument was made. Now that Gettleman lost/purged anyone from last season who can catch besides Olsen, continuity is overrated and not needed? Stop.
