#2561033 Last play of the game epitomizes why this team is so dangerous

Posted by Easyt65 on 23 December 2013 - 12:47 AM

Our defense is why this team is dangerous. The offense is still anemic...especially if Smitty will be out for a while (potentially a 'retirement' injury). I stand by my comment that after Smitty left the game it was never so obvious that we need another...or two...WRs. LaFell and Ginn can't consistently get open...or catch the ball. It looked like Cam all but gave up on them & bean looking for Olsen that next to last drive. Hixon made the most of his opportunity, but if Smitty is gone we're in trouble.


#1647555 most under-hyped story of 2011?

Sorry, I am not fully on the Cam bandwagon yet. We have 2 RBs who set an NFL record several seasons ago, yet they took a backseat to Cam's rushing attempts. I want a Field General in a QB not a 3rd RB under center. I don't mind if he takes off when he has to or if he tucks it and runs if he sees an opening when no other passing options are open. I do not want, however, a 'Michael Vick' at Carolina. Michael Vick, after all, hasn't won squat! Our offense wasn't balanced this year, and, as I said, our stud RBs took a back seat to Cam this past season. It didn't help our RBs that our OL wasn't the best this year. Man, I was so excited to draft Otah, the 'human road-grader', which he was at 1st...before his knees went 'buh-bye'. <Sigh>


#1405986 Cam's rookie mistakes

Posted by Easyt65 on 19 September 2011 - 07:24 AM

INTs yesterday:
- Threw off of his back foot under pressure
- Overthrew his WR
- Made a bad choice to throw to Smitty on the sidelines when there was coverage over the top and underneath.

The guy threw the ball something like 45 times yesterday. He was asked to carry the team on his back, as both QB AND Runningback.

You ask a >ROOKIE< QB playing in his 2nd NFL game to throw 45 times, carrying his team on his back, against the defending Super Bowl Champions and you get his performance yesterday....I'll take it all day long! Considering he had almost NO HELP from the running game..and from coaches calling plays at times, he did very well...for a rookie playing in his 2nd game!


#1374436 Brown Waived

Posted by Easyt65 on 06 September 2011 - 11:52 AM

I hate to say "I told you so", but.....



A little more than two years ago, the Panthers liked Florida State defensive end Everette Brown so much they traded their 2010 first-round draft choice to the San Francisco 49ers to pick Brown in the second round.

On Sunday, the Panthers cut ties with Brown, placing him on waivers after two less-than-spectacular seasons.




Thought it was a stupid move to trade our 2010 1st round pick for such an undersized DE, despite his lauded speed. While this move was not by FAR our worst personnel move / draft pick, it does go down as ONE of our worst / most wasted moves! (IMO)

1) 'Concern over' and 'dislike of' are two different things. And expressing concern does not equate to 'hating' Newton.

2) The whole 'you must be stupid or insane if you don't absolutely love Cam Newton because he's the 2nd coming of Manning and Vick combined' is getting old. There are legitimate concerns over Cam, and anyone who actually believes Cam is a LOCK to be the next greatest QB in the NFL and is ready to start right now is 'over-zealous' at this point to say the least.

3) Whether Newton was our 1st choice to draft or not, he's a Panther now. That means we are all Newton fans because from here on out as Cam Newton goes, so goes the Panthers.

Based on the 'Dwayne Jarrett-Eric Shelton Project Player Timeline', edwards has at least this and one more season to make it before being given the boot. :cool:


#1181657 Newton: "The offense I ran at Auburn was NOT 'simple'.

Posted by Easyt65 on 02 May 2011 - 01:28 PM

but, but, in this scenario I don't get to be right AND pompous :(


...or at least 'right'. You can still be 'pompous' if you wanna. :P


#1181565 Newton: "The offense I ran at Auburn was NOT 'simple'.

Posted by Easyt65 on 02 May 2011 - 12:46 PM

Via Pod Cast: Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton says he shouldn't be faulted for not having long plays at Auburn. Plus, Newton says the offense he ran was not simple.




If he thinks running plays that were NUMBERED and consisted of looking for 1, maybe 2, WRs before pulling the ball down and running was/is not 'simple', wait until he cracks the cover of that new Panthers Playbook Rivera handed him just before the lockout resumed. :nonod:


#936535 CBA 2011 Thread

Posted by Easyt65 on 22 December 2010 - 12:32 PM

I have not watched more than an inning of a Pro Baseball game since the ball players struck and cost this country a World Series. The NHL was riding the wave when they struck...and they have not been the same since. If the NFL strikes and costs the season, I'll become a HUGE college football fan.

18-Game Season:

I can see it if the owners/league converts the last 2 pre-season games into regular season games. The starters hardly play, and the scrubs fight for a roster spot during those games. In exchange for losing two 'audition games', allow teams to expand the number of players who can be on their 'Practice Squad'.
-- The Commissioner shot himself in the foot on this issue by taking the ations he has done to 'protect players'. Extending the season to 18 games is NOT in the best interest of proteting the players/the players' best interest.
-- Perhaps the 18 game season can be a bargaining chip for getting. lets say, the Rookie Salary CAP.
