I think the story is that the Panthers are now playing football differently than they have since the founding of the franchise. Remember the talk about rankless and tagless. If this was Rivera's idea, he's gotten JR to buy into it.
He's the first head coach we've had who can coach up the owner.
The alternative explanation is that JR got the idea and passed it along to Rivera. I don't think that's what happened.
Are the laughingstock of the whole country right now outside of New England and BSPN.
Had to fly to Portland OR today after being at BOA last night (which has been tough), but it's funny sitting at the bar in Phoenix and Portland listening to people talk.
And by God, the Panthers are relevant nationally again. And most everyone thinks it is laughable that the Patriots would have the audacity to complain about a controversial call after the Tuck Rule, Spygate, etc.
Fug em, we won, they lost, and life goes on. Panthers made a major statement last night.
I was listening to that dickhead Adam Schein on Sirius and caller after caller would tell him they were glad the Patriots finally got hosed by the refs. Schein was apoplectic.
Funny thing is I got a few Pats fan on my Tweet time line bitching about the final call of the game and saying it should have been called a PI. Then when I brought up the cheap leg whip. One of them said the refs can't see every thing everything in the game and flag. Smh!! Pats fans so one sided. Some Pat fans have no class or self respect. Get out of here. Leg Whip should have been flag. But oh well Karma is a bitch ain't it. What comes around goes around.
Another double standard: If that last play had been the other way around, all the ESPN douchebags and Boston assholes would be saying that you can't blame one bad call for your loss, that you should have played better so that it didn't come down to that.
Now tell me, how many times have you heard that said to us?
