#3202171 Steve Smith is still sad, throwing shade at Carolina

Posted by Mr. Scot on 13 January 2015 - 12:18 AM

They are a better franchise than we are. It's not even debatable. I'm glad Smitty is getting to experience playing for an organization like that. 


And yet we got just as far in the playoffs as they did.

#3202168 Ohio State Offensive Line

Posted by Mr. Scot on 13 January 2015 - 12:16 AM

OSU is much more physical on both sides of the ball. Oregon is supposed to have this great offense, but the OSU D has pot played them all night.

4 turnovers, and still holding them to 20pts...4 trips to the red zone, 1 TD. OSU D is the difference.


They've always been physical, but what they lacked for so many years was the kind of overall team speed it took to compete with SEC teams.


Hiring Urban Meyer went a long way toward correcting that problem.

#3202162 A story about JR from a former player.

Posted by Mr. Scot on 13 January 2015 - 12:12 AM

As an aside, I meant this thread to be pointed at the personal attacks on JR which are extremely embarrassing. I have no issue with debate on business practices.


The biggest problem I think people have here is that they can't seem to distinguish between intent and ineptitude.


One of the absolute dumbest arguments I see people making here on a regular basis is the notion that Richardson doesn't care about winning.  You really do have to be pretty much an idiot to actually believe that.


Richardson cares plenty about winning.  Numerous people have testified to that.


He's just previously failed to demonstrate that he knew how to pull it off.


But instead of recognizing the mistakes he's made (trusting the GM job to a PR guy, meddling at times when he shouldn't have, valuing loyalty over ability, etc) people ascribe some evil intent, like he's really just using the team to make money. 


What's especially dumb about this argument is that winning teams always make more money than losing ones, so to believe someone's deliberately losing in the hope of making more money, you really do have to turn your brain off (something a good number of people here seem to have very little trouble doing).


The happy news, though, is that Richardson does seem quite capable of learning.  He entrusted the GM search process to someone with way more experience than himself (Ernie Accorsi) and has since effectively given Dave Gettleman the keys to the franchise (if you doubt that, ask Steve Smith).  And since doing that, the team has finally made the playoffs two years in a row and shows signs of being competitive for a long time to come.


But hey, screw all that right?  Facts be damned.  We can't let go of our chosen narratives.


He must just be getting better at hiding his evil :rolleyes:

Ohio State has a longstanding reputation for good O-Linemen.

#3201787 John Fox and Denver parting ways

So Fox literally did talk his way out of Denver :blink:

If we lose Mcdermont would you consider Jack Del Rio as  DC ? Someone posted all the coaches at Denver were fired.


Del Rio is the leading candidate for the Raiders HC job (which is his dream job).

This place will be pretty insufferable regardless of the winner.

Patriots - LaFell gets a ring his first year away from this losing organization. Bitching ensues.

Packers - Peppers gets a ring finally after moving away from this losing organization. Bitching ensues.

Colts - Andrew Luck gets a ring in just his third year after staying in school to avoid this loser organization. Bitching ensues.

Seahawks - Russell Wilson will have two rings in 3 years while everybody still insists Cam is way better. Hey, we're losers, at least we lost to the champs. Bitching ensues.

So I guess I'll have to go with Seattle?


There seems to be a theme to all this, but I can't quite put my finger on it :unsure:

#3201563 Is John Fox trying to talk his way out of Denver?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 12 January 2015 - 07:42 PM

It has been pretty strange and this off season coaching carousel is just as weird. 


Let's see Rex Ryan to Buffalo, turning down the Atlanta job if reports are correct. 

Likely have Fox to Chicago, Del Rio to Oakland, Gase probably to Atlanta (makes the most sense to me) 


What the heck are they doing in Denver though and what is the plan there going forward... Cause I have no idea how they recover. 


Also still have the Jets and SF jobs as well on the board. one those has to be Doug Marrone..... or does he go to Denver now that it's open????


Marrone was speculated in Chicago because of a prior connection to the new GM. Now they're talking Fox because of Accorsi.


Heck, give Kyle Shanahan the Denver job with Mike coming along in some capacity and then everybody hang on and go "wheeeee" :wacko:

Austins been a DC for one year. What makes him a good candidate?


Lions defense has been good.


But honestly, I'm not a big fan of one year coordinators either.

#3201476 Duron Carter visiting Wednesday

Posted by Mr. Scot on 12 January 2015 - 07:07 PM

There is a famous personnel guy in the CFL from Charlotte. Does he have any ties to Duron?


Jim Popp, and I think he was Carter's GM.

#3201267 I am a Carolina Panther Fan

Posted by Mr. Scot on 12 January 2015 - 06:01 PM

Props to the PR dept and JR on this one, but if JR wanted the Panthers to stay in the Carolinas, he'd have bequeathed the team to his family.


Instead, he fired his own kids and demanded it be sold within two years of his death.


Don't need a website to back that one up. It's common knowledge.


Common knowledge :lol:


Try this for common knowledge...


The 76-year-old Richardson, who had a heart transplant a few years ago, said the deal was important to assuring the Panthers would stay in Charlotte upon his death.


Richardson told the council that it was important to keep the Panthers tethered to Charlotte.


"My interest is to guarantee the future of this franchise in the Carolinas. I've made it clear that I would never move the team," he said.


Charlotte votes to approve renovations


Good grief, some of you guys are clueless :wacko:

U got me dude. Listen man it's understsndable you have this mindset and don't have higher expectations as a fan. It is all you have known with this franchise. You can keep telling yourself all you want how Jerry is the bestest in the whole wide world, but again its a fairytale. I am sure you can find multiple reliable sources if you took the time to google it and didn't let your bias towards Jerry richardson get in the way of the truth. I will be more than happy to when I get out of work to take the 10 seconds to look it up and post the multiple links for you.


So..no, you can't.


Pretty much the response I expected.

#3201172 I am a Carolina Panther Fan

Posted by Mr. Scot on 12 January 2015 - 05:22 PM

That is where you are wrong. There were multiple reports stating that, and were credible. I understsnd for some reason you in particular have a blind loyalty towards Jerry Richardson, but he has handled a lot of things miserably in the recent past. There is no debating that. The guy will get continue to get a free pass from a majority of you because he brought the team to Charlotte. I am fine with that, but just know that a lot of the stuff you spew is a fairytale.


So then you can link those "multiple credible reports" right?


Or did these come from the same "source: you claimed to have before?
