#2991285 shula is a symptom, not the disease

Posted by Third Degree on 30 September 2014 - 09:13 PM


With the exception of one year when the defense just couldn't stop anyone (glorious 1998) and arguably the 2003 playoff run when Jake Delhomme reached his final form,

#2987489 Cracking Down on this Forum

Posted by Third Degree on 29 September 2014 - 08:51 AM

Well damn, how else is MadHatter going to post now?


I didn't consider that an insult but I don't make the calls here. However, MadHatter – while being a friend of the Huddle and therefore probably granted a much longer leash than nearly anyone else – has insulted more posters than just about anyone I've seen in the past couple years. If I were to say half of what he's said to me in a current thread I'd be banned for a long time, but part of running this place is you have the right to pick who gets kicked and who doesn't.


I rarely post in game threads, so if it's worse there I just don't see it.

Gambling that a patchwork OL better suited for arena league could protect our QB and RBs turned out to backfire epically.

#2972959 Which one of you did this?

#2972934 Panthers are now 1-6 on SNF and the playoffs since 06 with 4 blowouts

Posted by Third Degree on 22 September 2014 - 12:09 PM

I think the players know about the struggles we've had in these spots and it's starting to build on them. Think of Clemsoning or Clevelanding. Byron Bell doesn't give a crap about the specifics of Jake Delhomme vs. Tony Romo in 2006, but he does know that the Panthers struggle in games like this. It starts to snowball mentally. Next time the Panthers are on Sunday Night Football or the playoffs, you had better believe this 1-6 thing will be weighing on them.


Bell could just block it out of his mind, but, you know, he can't block anything.

#2971969 Cam Tonight

Posted by Third Degree on 21 September 2014 - 11:59 PM

I've seen PFFL's retarded yards-per-snap method of explaining how a 275-yard, TD, no-turnover game by Cam in a win was terrible, I've seen TRD slurp Matt Moore so hard he's still got semen residue on his face, and I've seen Fiz's movie trailer.

But never have I seen someone blame a player's pre-snap energy for his team's lack of success in a game. There's always something new here.

Byron Bell sucks

#2971893 Cam Tonight

Posted by Third Degree on 21 September 2014 - 11:48 PM

You sound like a Cam hater. Where was your pre-snap energy when he had good offensive games? Oh I guess it's because you didn't care enough to make up your dumbass theory then? 


Careful, he may question your IQ.


But he won't question mine. I have excellent pre-post energy.

#2971704 Cam Tonight

Posted by Third Degree on 21 September 2014 - 11:25 PM

It's much more complicated than that. This is the same O-line that did better with Anderson back there.

I will keep saying it. Go look at Anderson's pre-snap energy/theatrics during that game. He was as lively and "in command" as Peyton Manning is every game. I said after that week that I hope Cam took note.

The line did better as a unit in that game because they were properly energized. Cam's style is more inward, and thinking about what he needs to do. He tries to be too calm, and he's putting people to sleep, the line included. It ends up being every man for himself based on what's happening before the snap.

Most of you will never get this. Ask Frank Garcia about how a QB's pre-snap energy affects the whole offense and see what he says.


All comes down to 2 things. Oh and the OL played better last week with Cam there. They called more quick hits with DA. Our OL is not even a top-three OL in the SEC, let alone the NFL. Can't win games or keep anyone healthy by running it or slow-developing pass plays.


Pre-snap energy means approximately 0.00000000000001%. Lack of talent on the OL and playcalling that doesn't fit our few strengths on offense account for the rest. 

#2971674 Josh Norman

I'm surprised no one blamed Josh Norman for us losing the Super Bowl. 

Pick a new whipping boy.

#2971574 Cam Tonight

Posted by Third Degree on 21 September 2014 - 11:14 PM

Our OL continues to fail Cam on a consistent basis. We have absolutely no semblance of a running game. Our offense is Cam, Olsen and KB. Cam had more tools and better protection as a rookie than he does now. And yet people place more blame on him. Blame Gettleman for not getting some other OL, blame Shula, but I don't see a point to blame Cam at all.

Just lol at the "fans" that would be OK with Cam leaving due to that $$$. Yeah I think we'd be so much better off with DA and a rookie and a slew of mediocre players that take up that cash. Ha.


Think, fellas.

If we don't pay that someone will. And if we don't pay that, we aren't gonna sniff a winning record for a long time, to say nothing of the incredibly bad public perception that could cause.
