#3021641 Kelvin Benjamin Still Looks Boom or Bust

Posted by LawCat on 15 October 2014 - 02:11 AM

Hate to agree with BR garbage, but Benji is not Megatron 2.0.

That said he is a GREAT player and a perfect fit for the offense. I think most of us have been very pleased with his production so far and think he has potential to be an elite possession type receiver. Once he gets his routes down pat and works out the easy-catch drops he seems to have from time to time, lookout. He will be a TD and first down machine.

Those expecting big YAC or for Benji to blow up 40 plus yard TDs on a regular basis are going to be disappointed. That is not the player we drafted folks.


#3016420 Cam Newton MVP

Posted by LawCat on 12 October 2014 - 04:48 PM

29 for 46 for 284 yards, 2 passing TD, 1 int. 17 Rushes for 107 yards, 1 rushing TD.

 

These stats are really really good, but don't come close to capturing how great Cam played. Some of the throws the guy made were incredible, especially when under pressure. 

 

Cam is exactly the player we all hoped he would be by this time in his career. He is playing on the same level as the best QBs in the NFL right now. #StartAnderson?




#2986736 Anderson is a better option than Cam right now

Posted by LawCat on 28 September 2014 - 09:56 PM

Why do some panther fans refuse to support Cam? Derek Anderson is good, but he is not even close to the player Cam is. No serious football person could ever think he is. Did you see some of the throws cam made today under constant pressure?? With all due respect to Luke, Cam is the best and most important player on the team. If he can play, he should be out there.


#2957274 PFT: NFL may suspend Hardy

Posted by LawCat on 16 September 2014 - 09:15 AM

For those of you claiming he should sue for slander, defamation of character, etc., my understanding is it's almost impossible for famous people to win cases of that type. I seem to remember reading there are different standards and thresholds for people in the public eye.

I know we have at least a couple of lawyers on here. Can one of you comment on this?


Correct. Public Figures have to prove the additional element of "actual malice" for defamation. Basically, that whoever said the false and defamatory statement did it with the intent to hurt the public figure somehow.

#2935040 All Anderson proved today is...

Posted by LawCat on 07 September 2014 - 08:13 PM

DA basically guaranteed us that we won't be able to afford him next year so a trade is not a bad idea if the Rams bite.


Anderson could have left Charlotte this offseason and competed for a starting job somewhere else and probably gotten more money. I bet he stays in Charlotte as long as the panthers want him.

He has a pretty sweet gig here and could easily backup cam for another few years.

#2880705 PSLs

Posted by LawCat on 07 August 2014 - 08:05 PM

There are literally no benefits, unless you're Jerry Richardson. It greatly benefits him, mainly his wallet. You have to pay the thousands of dollars for the PSL (for every individual seat) plus the normal price for season tickets. Then you buy season tickets every single year thereafter. And you have to buy season tickets every single year or they take away your PSL and sell it to someone else, and you lose all of that money. You pay a ridiculous amount of money to feel entitled and feel special and walk around saying "I'm a PSL owner!" About the only benefit I see is being able to keep the exact same seat every year, but that's also a negative. If you just buy season tickets you can switch up sections every year and view the stadium from different angles.

Why anyone would pay throw away all that money for nothing is beyond me. And it's not like the tickets will ever become UNC-Duke @ Cameron levels of expensive and hard to get. There will always be seats reserved for season tickets and individual purchase. You'll always be able to get in the stadium anytime you please.

Don't let them tell you "well when the team wins a Super Bowl and tickets are 500% face value it'll be worth it." No it won't. It all evens out because you're still having to buy all those tickets when the team is 2-14 and the laughing stock of the league.

My dad bought a pair of PSLs in '95. He paid nearly $20k for 2 PSLs and has paid fill price for season tickets (full price for all preseason games also) for 20 years now. All those losing seasons, '01 1-15 & '10 2-14 teams that were unwatchable included, and he still had to fork over the money just to keep from losing his PSLs. Whereas I didn't buy PSLs, and I've never even bought season tickets because you have to pay full price for 2 preseason games. I've been to all but 5 games in Charlotte since '96. And I didn't have to buy PSLs or season tickets. Yeah, last year and this year I'll be paying a bit over face value, but all those years the team sucked I either got tickets for a fraction of the cost, and a lot of times people just gave them to me. I've sat in about every upper and lower level section and seen the stadium from all angles. Whereas my father has paid out of his ass every year and sees the games from the same seat every year.

Don't be a sucker.


PSLs got us this team. Without the commitment your dad, my parents, and thousands of other people made back before we got the team, the NFL would never have given JR the franchise. That is a simple fact. These people were not suckers. It's because of them you even have games to go to. They have every right to feel entitled.

Also, while we were one of the first team to finance a stadium this way, it has since become the standard.

#2711640 Jordan Matthews to meet Panthers

Posted by LawCat on 21 March 2014 - 10:34 PM

Draft season always reveals something about a lot of Huddlers, and you can always tell who does and doesnt know what they are talking about with the different terms they use to describe prospects.

Fans who tend to use terms like "safe," "polished" "NFL ready" or ridiculous pyschoanalysis terms like "will" or "gutsy" or other stupid cliche's like "does he want it" or "will he hate football once he gets teh moniez?" tend to always show themselves as lesser minds (drven by walterfootball no doubt) or with such an all consuming fear or the prospect of greatness or a player *gasp* busting.

Fans who tend to use terms like "elite" and "rare" have consistently shown themselves on this site to be, year in and year out, more credible in their analysis of draft prospects and I take to trusting their opinions more than I do the feeble minds who evaluate prospects on the basis of how "safe" they are.

#2612778 Ideal 1st Round Pick for Carolina [UPDATED]

Posted by LawCat on 13 January 2014 - 11:54 AM

I'm an ole miss homer, but donte monceief is for real. Barring injury, he will be an excellent nfl WR. Big, physical, fast, good hands, and no off the field concerns.


#2612766 Hardy may be the best free agent out there

Posted by LawCat on 13 January 2014 - 11:49 AM

Franchise tag. Really surprised if this doesn't happen.


#2146868 Chris Gamble

Posted by LawCat on 27 February 2013 - 08:45 PM

I know the offseason is boring, but why cut the Gamble before we have to? Even if Gettleman has decided to cut him, if he doesn't have to do until a certain date, then it is in the teams advantage to hold him as long as possible to see how things play out. Gettleman is smart to take his time making these decisions. For all we know, Gamble is interested in re-working his deal so he can stay, not likely, but possible.


#2068891 Very Nice Press Conference by Cam

Posted by LawCat on 30 December 2012 - 09:01 PM

You'll not find a bigger fan or someone that wants Cam to succeed more than I do.

But he is not a well spoken young man. He could use a public speaking coach in addition to his QB coach.


Give me a break, Cam isn't running for Senate or being paid to argue in court. The kid is doing just fine in his press conferences, simple and plain.

#1906309 Indoor Practice Facility?

Posted by LawCat on 18 September 2012 - 07:26 PM

Gotta think our guys are getting tired of practicing in the Charlotte Convention Center every time it freaking rains. I think this is pretty commonplace, I know the Saints have an impressive indoor practice facility and the Falcons have one as well. Even higher level college programs have indoor practice facilities.

While certainly a more sizable investment, I think this is a better one than escalators or WI-FI in the stadium.

Panthers practiced in the convention center Tuesday, not sure about Monday, but this is already a short week.

Some interesting stats poached from a Redskins forum (cannot attest to their accuracy):

  • 13 of last 14 Super Bowl participants had their own indoor practice facility.
  • Last 8 Super Bowl winners had their own indoor practice facility.
  • Last 6 Super Bowl winners had a fixed structure indoor practice facility (not a bubble).
  • All 12 teams to make playoffs last season used their own indoor practice facility.
  • 2010 teams who practiced using their own indoor full-field training facility had a median win total of 10 (10-6 record).
  • 2010 teams who practiced outdoors had a median win total of 6 (6-10 record).
  • 2010 teams who practiced indoors at own training facility averaged 4 more wins in 2010, compared to those who did not.
  • 2010 teams who practiced outdoors and were not located in Florida or California, had the following records: 6-10 (Redskins), 6-10 (Cowboys), 5-11 (Cardinals), 4-12 (Bengals), 4-12 (Broncos), 2-14 (Panthers).
Here is a link to the Redskins thread about this if you are interested, this dude did his homework:
