#3138890 Four scenarios this weekend

I agree that it seems that way. However, there are always surprise wins where the team that seems superior loses.

#3138840 Four scenarios this weekend

Posted by Ccat on 16 December 2014 - 08:41 AM

And what each will mean for us going forward. Only 2 games matter next week. Browns at Panthers and Falcons at Saints. Here are the ways it could play out this weekend.

1. Panthers win and Falcons win. Best case scenario. Eliminates Saints. Winner of Panthers at Falcons in week 17 wins the NFC South.

2. Panthers win and Saints win. Falcons eliminated. Panthers would need to beat Falcons and Bucs would need to upset the Saints in Tampa for us to make the playoffs.

3. Panthers lose and Falcons win. All 3 teams still alive. Panthers could win the NFC South with the same week 17 results as scenario 2.

4. Panthers lose and Saints win. It's over for us.

When players are having fun, that usually means they are playing better and faster. When players start over thinking things on the field, it slows them down. This in no way means they aren't focused on winning

I had something similar happen to me about a month ago. Was walking on a sidewalk back from a corner store with my friend, cops drive up and immediately go into asshole mode, GET OVER HERE! PUT YOUR HANDS ON THE HOOD! WHO ARE YOU! WHAT ARE YOU DOING! I asked them what's going on and they said "we got a report of two guys walking" lol that's literally word for word what they said "we got a report of two guys walking".

I told them my name, as I'm legally required to do in the state of Nevada. Didn't answer any of their other questions, where I was coming from, what I was doing, ect. as is my right by the 5th amendment. That's when they threatened to arrest me for trespassing. The property where they stopped us was where I was living at the time, I wasn't trespassing and they had no evidence that I was either. Nobody associated with the property ever claimed we were trespassing and they didn't even check with the owner/operator of the property to see if our names were listed as living there.

They stopped us for no reason, detained us with no probable cause of anything. Threatened to arrest us without any evidence we committed a crime. I had to show them my ID and proof that I was living there, which I'm not under any legal obligation to do, to avoid being falsely arrested.

That's probably only the 3rd worst interaction I've had with the police in the last 12 months. Fun times.

Not saying anything that happened as you described it is right or wrong because obviously I don't know what went on. I just want to let you know for your knowledge in the future that probable cause is not required to detain someone. Probable cause is required for an arrest but reasonable suspicion is the level needed to detain someone

In regards to this thread I would also like to say this. I am reserving judgement on the whole situation until for info comes out. No one knows for sure exactly what happened and the circumstances surrounding it. So, I refuse to take anyone's side on this right now.


I would like to point this out though. IF...IF...IF you are a police officer and someone just fought with you, grabbed for your gun, etc...and because of that you drew your gun. Then distance was created, but the other person started running at you again and you shoot, it isn't unreasonable to shoot 6 shots to defend yourself. You don't have time to just shoot one shot and then pause to see if it worked or not and continue like that. 35 feet is very close when someone is running. that distance can be covered in a few seconds. If you shoot once and it doesn't stop them, but you paused to wait to see if it worked, it could be too late to do anything more.

Sounds like that guy was not all there mentally, but if all he had was a knife, why not just tase him?


I really don't feel like getting pulled into this thread, because most people in here on both sides aren't going to budge from their opinion. However, I do want to point out that "just a knife" is deadly and Tasers don't always work. First of all, you might have only one shot with it, and if you miss then you better have the ability to defend yourself from the knife with your hand skills because you will be out of time to switch to anything else if they rush towards you. Second, even if you hit them with a Taser it isn't always effective. The effectiveness first depends on where the two prongs hit. If you have a good spread, then it will most likely be effective. If there is a small spread, then people can fight through the localized pain. Third, even with a good spread, someone on some hard drugs like PCP will be able to fight through it regardless. 


What I'm trying to say is if someone pulls a knife and is holding it in an aggressive manner near me and acting strange. I'm not going to choose the Taser as my choice of defending myself, because there's a good chance that could fail, and if I fail it could cost me my life.
