In Topic: Panthers and Cam Newton in contract talks

I think Cook is going to be looking to get a big number, but if push comes to shove, I don't see Cam being the type to let his agent screw him or the team over here. Cam will take a lower number if he has to for the sake of the team. Just a gut feeling.


In Topic: What happened to Al Jefferson?

Al is a double edged sword, really. He gives us a big man down low that is hard to stop. But, as pointed out, he just doesn't fit with the other 4 guys on the court at any given time. Sure, if we had a sure-fire 3-point shooter to kick to on the wing whenever they collapse on Al, it'd work better. We wouldn't have to go from fast paced, efficient passing to a snail's pace with Al working his man over in the post for 10 seconds. But, we don't have that right now. I think we just have to keep an eye on his minutes. Pepper him in and give Vonleh and Biyombo more minutes, because they're the future here. Jefferson is a stop-gap to develop those two more without throwing them to the wolves and when he was picked up, he was sorely needed.


Long term, Jefferson isn't a problem. He'll be gone and I think our offense will be more solid for it, both in his helping guys like Vonleh with their post work, and with just giving the young guys a chance to develop while doing good work on the boards to give us a chance to win now instead of just saying "we'll win whenever we get our young guys developed". And in that, as said a million times, our tempo on offense will pick up. Because honestly, our offense is fuging boring a lot of the time. Nice to see Al get like, 3 straight buckets down low every quarter, but still, I want us playing to our strengths. Efficient passes, get good mid-range looks, take the occasional 3, drive the lane with guys like Hendo. That's our identity and we need to stick to that.

If the radio transmission were not a figment of his imagination, it sounds as though there may be organized and identified factions fighting for control of what's left of civilization.

Notice how precise those bodies were cut? Bottom halves left and then all of those torsos with no arms or legs fell on the car at the end?

"The Wolves" are not animals, in my opinion.



I'm thinking they are animals, in a sense...but they're basically the pets of a group of savages. It will be a short arc with them, I'm sure.

Honestly, I really hope that the wolves are just in fact wolves and not some group. I wish I knew why those bodies were sliced up. Was definitely one of the creepiest aspects of this show. It was very, very dark. Just to see the bottom halves on the edge of the neighborhood, then have all the top halves come out of that one vehicle when Rick hit it.
