He's River Dancing.


I'd call it sky dancing.


#2487502 Eric Reid's father thanks Tolbert

Posted by Mr. Scot on 14 November 2013 - 10:02 PM

Never, ever let Tolbert go... well, unless he wants to start some place else as a RB... but if he wants to stay, keep him here. Dude is 100% awesome.


So we're never gonna give him up?


#2487429 TNF: IND at TEN

Posted by Mr. Scot on 14 November 2013 - 08:58 PM

is this the first time we've had QBs starting opposite each other from Harvard and Stanford?


:lol:

If the game goes to a time, it will be broken by a world history quiz.


#2487365 Tolbert's reason for being out...

Posted by Mr. Scot on 14 November 2013 - 07:20 PM

Per Joe Person, his wife gave birth this morning.

Reports from the hospital are the mother and baby are fine. The doctor who did the delivery however is said to have sustained some mild bruising. Apparently, the baby knocked him down on the way out of his mother :blink:

Very cool.

The team has shown that it's possible to be physical without being dirty.

(that's a lesson some douchebag players for the Saints and Rams could stand to learn)


#2487314 D-Will Motivated against the Patriots

Posted by Mr. Scot on 14 November 2013 - 06:31 PM

Ya and then in the next round they traded up for a talentless receiver, giving up a third in the process.

Are we sure the two franchises didn't do some weird executive exchange involving Hurney just for that draft?


I might buy into that theory if their history of recent draft mistakes were confined to that year alone.

They most certainly are not. The Patriots make headscratching draft choices on pretty much an annual basis.


#2487244 D-Will Motivated against the Patriots

That was a really good crop of RBs that year. Deangelo, MJD, and Reggie Bush are all still tearing it up 7 years later.

Leon Washington, Mike Bell still around, too. Maroney, Addai, Lendale White, not so much.


I don't remember if you were around then, but there were people on here screaming bloody murder because we took Williams over LenDale White.


#2487241 D-Will Motivated against the Patriots

I forgot about the patriots drafting maroney

A lot of other fans around the league must have forgotten that as well because all you hear about is how much of a great, flawless talent evaluator he is


They traded up to get ahead of us and take him.

It's been reported since that Hurney had Maroney higher on his draft board than Williams, so in essence their dumb move saved us from a Hurney mistake.


#2487082 When the Panthers Attack (article from cbssports.com)

Excellent write-up by Pete Prisco...


There's a phrase you don't see here often.


#2487076 A Reporter's Insight Into Rivera

Posted by Mr. Scot on 14 November 2013 - 03:09 PM

I don't think anyone ever had a problem with Rivera the man. It was Rivera the coach we didn't like. It was the decisions to punt and kick field goals late in 4th quaters and his time management skills people had a problem with.

I for one have always been a fan of Rivera the person. He comes across as genuine, down to earth coach. Obviously this is from watching interviews and camp highlights and crap like that. I thought it was pretty cool when he brought that little kid into training camp this off season.


Fua is gone. Who's left for you to 'free'?


#2487038 Mike Mitchell works the sidelines

Posted by Mr. Scot on 14 November 2013 - 02:42 PM

To add to all that's been said, when I met Mitchell at Panther Talk this past Monday I was shocked by his size - he was smaller than I expected given how physical he plays. In my mind, that makes his feats all the more impressive, guy hits like he weighs 250 lbs.

The other thing I'll say is that Mitchell seemed VERY comfortable interacting with the fans and seems like a very good communicator, so it doesn't surprise me that he's taken a leadership role on the defense.


In fairness CM, most of us look smaller from your vantage point :lol:


#2485997 Panthers Sign Travis Bond, Guard from Minn Practice Squad

Posted by Mr. Scot on 13 November 2013 - 05:51 PM

It all revolves around hitting on your early picks, and finding potential wherever you can. The better you draft, the better your team. Not a new idea, but it seems almost mythical to achieve.

Best case, you do draft well enough to build, and keep, a solid core going, as well as keeping the shelves stocked for the future.

Right around 1/2 your roster is made up of 4th round or lower guys. The bottom of your roster says a lot about your team. Those 4th and lower guys with enough talent to push the starters for minutes. Those guys that fill out the depth chart. Those guys that do the grunt work, and make the team as a whole, better.

I would put our roster up there with anyone's, THAT is a new concept.

Lastly, I absolutely love how Gman has filled in the roster, as it comes to the draft. He can do BPA and not sweat a bit. All he has to do, is do his job. Evaluate and secure.

So far? He gots this.

tl/dr version. Gman so far has proven he knows talent, and he knows value. Next is proving he can continue to upgrade and already proven team? This off-season gonna ball out I tell ya what.


I'm looking forward to the offseason, but not for the same reason as in past years :)


#2485905 Panthers Sign Travis Bond, Guard from Minn Practice Squad

Posted by Mr. Scot on 13 November 2013 - 04:49 PM

This excerpt from NFL Scout....

"Built like a tackle but could be groomed as a swing player between guard and right tackle. Known to play a little too high with slower hands. He'll need a lot of work with line coach Jeff Davidson to give the team any quality at backup guard or tackle. "


I had no clue that Jeff Davidson was Minn O-line coach.


Yep. Has been for a while.

On topic, has anyone mentioned this dude is huge? :blink:

Best hope he and Michael Jasper don't sit on the same bench :unsure:


#2485622 Dan Connor signing with Panthers today

Posted by Mr. Scot on 13 November 2013 - 01:58 PM

One day contract so he can retire a Panther? Since his glory days were here.


Connor had glory days?


#2485586 NFC DPOW- Luuuuuuuuuke

Posted by Mr. Scot on 13 November 2013 - 01:41 PM

Especially the game in the dome.

The unstoppable force (Saints O at Home) vs. the immovable object (Panthers D anywhere)


Rivera has a pretty good record of figuring out how to attack elite quarterbacks.

He's effectively neutralized Peyton on more than one occasion.
