#3104653 Ferguson Decision

"look, there's no actual problem with the militarization of police. look at the people who think that, they're rioting thugs! support the police!"




#3104628 Ferguson Decision

Posted by rodeo on Yesterday, 11:45 AM

I honestly do wish Venom was here for this, because there's a lot of screwy poo going on.

 

Has anyone wondered why all the clear cut cases of cops killing innocent people, slashing dogs' throats, etc. go largely unreported? Here in Huntsville our cops are absolutely out of control. They let a prisoner die of gangrene on his cell floor without food or water or medical treatment. They and some teachers let a middle school special needs girl get raped because they needed to 'catch the boy in the act' or it didn't count. They murdered Ashia Raquel Oliver, an 18 year old black girl walking innocently out of a gas station.

 

All of these things were pretty much entirely unreported by the national/main stream media. What did get picked up? The questionable case in Ferguson where we can look at it and say "hmm he was kind of a thug and may be guilty of something." That is the case the media latched on to, and the media are the ones who built this into a powder keg situation.

 

I wouldn't be at all surprised if that initial guy with a bullhorn inciting a riot last night was a government agent.

What a great idea, plug the worst o-lineman on your roster into a more important position.




#3100508 Cam Newton Stat Trivia

Posted by rodeo on 21 November 2014 - 11:31 PM

I wouldn't even consider this a good stat when one is aware of our lack of check down options and short, high percentage routes. When you only have 20 yard slow routes available to throw to, of course you'll have more YPC. But also lower %.




#3099252 I don't think I've ever seen the fanbase against our HC coach this mu...

Gettleman does not have to get up in front of reporters and answer question several times a week. Rivera does.

 

Do you actually think Gettleman didn't realize what the Panthers had at OL going into the season?

 

It is ludicrous.

 

It his is job to know. Sure he takes input from coaches, but ultimately he is the one responsible for stocking the cupboard. This season, he didn't have any money to stock the cupboard. It just wasn't there.

 

What was Rivera supposed to say??? " Well, I really don't like the hand I am being dealt by my GM, but I guess I'll just have to deal with it." ???

 

Running and coaching an NFL franchise is not as easy as playing smart guy on an internet message board.

 

I think Gettleman's thoughts on the OL were simply this: I have a veteran QB. He is entering his 4th full season as a starter. If there is anyone I can count on to pull some extra weight and take a little pressure off a part of the roster we just can't address, my franchise QB is the guy to do it.

 

It hasn't just hasn't worked out that way.

 

Gettleman signs the players, but Rivera sets the depth chart. He hasn't put the best 22 players on the field. Everyone with any sense has seen that our line is at its worst when Silatolu is in the game, and instantly better when either Velasco or Norwell are in his place. Yet, week after week, Rivera starts Silatolu and that's when we give up the most sacks. He refused to pull him out of the Eagles game when it was clear he was in way over his head. There are several other examples of Rivera either stubbornly or ignorantly starting inferior players.

 

He said it himself that the Eagles game was an eye opener that our WRs can't get any separation. So what did he do after the Eagles game? Absolutely nothing. He started the exact same line-up against Atlanta (save for Brown returning from injury). We ended up having the exact same problem, surprise! He is incapable of being proactive, only reactive, and only reactive when his hand is utterly forced.

 

He'll continue to start the Invisible Man Ed Dickson, when there is an explosive athlete on the depth chart behind him. He'll continue to start Blanketed Bersin when we have a deep threat on the practice squad. He won't take any chances with the roster, just like he won't take any chances on the field, and it will continue to cost us games.




#3098185 Cam's twitter was hacked because his password was "Camnewton1"

Posted by rodeo on 20 November 2014 - 03:19 AM

His tweet was a joke and also you copied your comment from the reddit thread about it.




#3095971 rivera - eagles game an eye opener

Posted by rodeo on 18 November 2014 - 04:13 PM

He says he had this eye opener after the Eagles game, yet after the Eagles game he came out and said the problem was Cam's "mental" issue. Why didn't he mention this a week ago? Also, why did he do nothing about it, did he expect the receivers to get younger before Atlanta?




#3095716 Andrew McDonald just hit waivers

Posted by rodeo on 18 November 2014 - 02:43 PM

It would be impolite to claim him.




#3095712 proehl on philly

Posted by rodeo on 18 November 2014 - 02:42 PM

How many targets should an undrafted rookie get in the first couple of weeks?  Then he missed 3-4 games with a concussion. I. Don't understand the coaching criticism on this one. When you complain about everything, you look like a whiner and lose credibility. 

 

How many reps should an undrafted rookie lineman get?




#3093634 Does PFF even watch football?

Posted by rodeo on 17 November 2014 - 04:05 PM

Kelvin has been extremely lazy with his route running and doesn't even try to block when we're running. Most of his touchdowns/yards came during garbage time. Out of his 86 targets he's only caught 30ish.

 

He has 56 receptions.




#3093259 KB.....

Posted by rodeo on 17 November 2014 - 12:47 PM

I'd like to point out that he's beating Steve Smith in every stat this year and for the whole of last year. KB already has twice as many touchdowns in 10 games than Smith had in all of 2013.




#3092504 Brandon Williams

Posted by rodeo on 16 November 2014 - 11:05 PM

I want Proehl to stay....just my opinion.
 

 

I've seen too many receivers slowing down/stopping/jogging in their routes to want Proehl to stay.




#3092449 Brandon Williams

Posted by rodeo on 16 November 2014 - 10:37 PM

It took me a while to come around to him, but absolutely I do think that. He has explosive athleticism and is criminally underused in our offense.




#3092362 Are there any Rivera defenders left or are we 100% against him coming back?

Posted by rodeo on 16 November 2014 - 09:56 PM

There are a few self styled "rational minds" who will show up eventually to bash Cam and defend Shula/Rivera.




#3091570 We can't keep Ron Rivera or Mike Shula heading into bye week after that

Posted by rodeo on 16 November 2014 - 05:24 PM

I think if they fire Shula on Monday, Ramsdell could use the 2 weeks to seamlessly take over.

 

They won't, but I think they could.
