#1542922 Cam up for Rookie of the Week again...

Posted by X-Clown on 30 November 2011 - 05:16 PM

It's only for the season. He's having a very good year. Please check your hate at the door next time.

Sorry, a statistic that supposedly takes "clutch" play into account shouldn't find that Romo who directly cost his team two games in the 4th quarter with stupid mistakes as the 4th best. However, if you want another example of how silly the statistic is:

In Week 5, The Golden Calf of Bristol had a higher QBR than Aaron Rodgers. This was in a game in which the Broncos lost, and he completed 4 out of 10 passes for 79 yards for one TD, and had 6 carries for 38 yards and one TD. Aaron Rodgers meanwhile was 26 of 39 for 396 yards, 2 TDs for a 10.2 ypa, and beat the Falcons by double digits. Those QB experts that know what it takes to win in the NFL have some explaining to do.

#1522501 Aaron Rodgers isn't fair

Shooting from the hip. I was obviously wrong.


I forgive you, it was the last year that they were really good. They still had Vrabel, Seymour, Harrison, Bruschi, Samuel, Seau, and Adalius Thomas (when he was still good).

Brady in 2007 and Rodgers this season are also similar in that their defense was/is garbage (I don't care about last night against the Vikings offense)

New England's defense in 2007 was 4th in the NFL in total yards and points allowed, 2nd in the league in sacks, and in the top 10 in turnovers. Care to explain that away?

#1512377 Dispelling the new myth about our offense and defense

Posted by X-Clown on 10 November 2011 - 05:01 PM

Before you continue any rational debate, keep in mind who you are aruging with

One word: Underdog.

Maybe it's just me but one thing that always gets me emotional when it comes to sports, to athletes and certainly to the Panthers is when they accomplish a little more than just a win.

Not that I have anything against great teams or players. My second favorite team is the Patriots, which are always reliable and consistent winners, but it always meant something more to me when a team or a guy that nobody notices or gives a chance to, accomplishes the impossible or the unimaginable. And even the Patriots's QB is led by one of those guys that proved even though he didn't have the name, the pedigree, or the fame, turned out to be one of the greats that every year is mentioned in sentences with some of the greats.

To me the Panthers have always been that team. We have always flew under the radar. We never had the media coverage other great teams get. Our best wide receiver, Steve Smith, was a problem-athelete and considered too small by many to ever make a difference on the NFL level. 10 years into his career and that's certainly not the case. He proved his doubters wrong. Our first true franchise QB, love him or hate him, was also a nobody, played in NFL Europe, and came in as a back-up, but out of all the QB this team has been through, he managed to be the first true franchise QB, and the only one to ever take us to a Superbowl. And on that day, he played toe-to-toe and throw-for-throw with Tom Brady.

And now here we are. The nobodys once again, being lead by another nobody. Mot of the fans don't even want him starting. And even more believe he won't even be here next year. He was passed over by an unproven rookie with a name this year, and has been passed over many, many times before in the past. Despite the fact that he won more games than lost as a starter on this team, he gets very little credit and is doubted by most.

Most around here already have labeled me as a Moore lover. Do I love him? No, I wouldn't go that far. But I do like him and I love the idea of him being another diamond in the rough. And I really hope this guy comes out there and proves his doubters wrong. So do I support him with all my heart? You're GOD DAMN RIGHT I DO! Matt Moore fits this team and this team's history like a glove and because of that, this Sunday my heart's going to be 100% behind this guy and behind this team.

I'm excited! And if you are not, go screw a sheep!

PS: One more thing. We are going to win on Sunday

#1496706 Terry Bradshaw ranked Dalton ahead of Cam...

Posted by X-Clown on 31 October 2011 - 05:11 PM

Hey let's be Pantherball and check in on Andy Dalton's drives in the 2nd half yesterday since he's obviously such a more clutch performer than Cam Newton.

1) 3 and out
2) INT at the Seattle 39 yard line
3) INT at midfield
4) After starting at his own 38 (hello special teams), the running game picks up 18 yards, he completes a 4 yard pass and two defensive penalties lead to his kicker making a 48 yard FG
5) 3 kneel downs

4 of 11 passing for 34 yards, 2 INTs, in the 2nd half what a winner. Oh by the way, the Bengals got a punt return for a TD, and then an INT for a touchdown in the 4th quarter.

In my eyes, Cam Newton has yet to post a 4th quarter come back for the win cause that Jaguars game was a damn mess. I wanna see clutch factor. I wanna see what he does when the game is on the line. I wanna see him do something even The Golden Calf of Bristol did yesterday.

Next time we are down by 7 points or less in the 4th quarter and we have the ball I wanna see him put us up, tie or win the game. When he can do this then we can win with 1 or more turn-overs. Until that time we won't.

You have got to be joking. You have put a foolish, unrealistic expectation of Cam having to carry us to a top 5 offense in his rookie season under a system that is brand new to 90% of our offense, and then back that up by saying you want to see him perform like The Golden Calf of Bristol did yesterday. Did you actually look at any context to how The Golden Calf of Bristol's comeback took place against the mighty 0-6 Miami Dolphins? Bill Barnwell wrote a great column about it today.


Far be it from us to ruin an admittedly great story, but let's be real about the The Golden Calf of Bristol plaudits being thrown around after the Broncos' 18-15 comeback over the Dolphins on Sunday. The Golden Calf of Bristol certainly deserves some of the credit, but not the massive outpouring of praise that is being thrown his way.

The Win Probability chart at advancednflstats.com for this game tells the true story of what happened. When The Golden Calf of Bristol took over on his own 20-yard line down 15 points with 5:23 left, both Broncos and Dolphins fans were leaving the stadium in Miami, and they weren't wrong to do so. The Broncos' chances of winning were estimated to be around 1 percent. The Golden Calf of Bristol proceeded to lead his most impressive drive of the day, going 80 yards in eight plays, throwing a five-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas.

For all that work, the Broncos' chances of winning had improved all the way to … 2 percent. Teams with an eight-point lead that are about to receive the kickoff simply don't lose very frequently; it takes an expected onside kick to pick it up, and teams recover expected onside kicks only about 20 percent of the time. When the Broncos were able to recover the kick, their win expectancy improved to 12 percent; the onside kick was six times more valuable than The Golden Calf of Bristol's drive. If that figure seems low, consider that the Broncos still needed to drive 50 yards, score, pick up a two-point conversion, and then win in overtime. They had momentum in their favor, but so have plenty of other teams in this scenario who haven't been able to pick up the W.

The Golden Calf of Bristol then proceeded to take advantage of a short field. Starting on his own 44-yard line, The Golden Calf of Bristol drove the team 56 yards in 10 plays, highlighted by a gorgeous 28-yard throw to (and equally impressive catch from) Daniel Fells. After that, Denver converted the two-pointer on a The Golden Calf of Bristol run1 and the Broncos' win expectancy was pushed all the way up to 46 percent. They'd made an incredible comeback, but they were still underdogs heading into overtime.

After they won the overtime coin toss and traded possessions with the Broncos, the Dolphins remained favorites. When Daniel Thomas converted a second-and-2 to give the Dolphins a new set of downs on their own 43-yard line, the Dolphins only needed to travel about 25 more yards to pick up a game-winning field goal. They win an estimated 67 percent of the time in that situation.

That, of course, led to the final dramatic swing. Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams sacked Matt Moore on the ensuing play, producing a single-play swing that was bigger than any of The Golden Calf of Bristol's drives. The Broncos went from a win expectancy of 33 percent to 78 percent by recovering the fumble, and while they proceeded to gain only two yards on the subsequent drive, they converted another short field into points to win the game.

On Sunday, The Golden Calf of Bristol was given a total of 15 possessions. Four of them started with 56 yards or less to go for an offensive touchdown. Not coincidentally, of the four, three were his final three drives, and he produced a total of 11 points on those drives. His other 11 drives all started deep in his own territory, with six of them beginning on the 20-yard line and only one beyond the 25 (a drive that started on the Miami 41 that resulted in a missed field goal). Ten of those drives resulted in eight punts, a missed field goal, and a fumble. They gained, on average, less than 12 yards.

This isn't a one-week trend, either. When he came in against the Chargers last Sunday, The Golden Calf of Bristol started with three consecutive drives inside his own 31-yard line. The Broncos punted on all three drives. On the ensuing two possessions, though, The Golden Calf of Bristol started from his own 49-yard line and the San Diego 41-yard line. With the short fields, he proceeded to score two touchdowns. It can't be much simpler.

A lot of what we're crediting to The Golden Calf of Bristol is actually the impact of things that are totally out of his control, a combination of field position, defensive turnovers, and a miracle on special teams.
He deserves some of the plaudits that have come his way over the past two Sundays. Just not all of them.


#1475351 QB debuts against the Panthers over the years

Posted by X-Clown on 21 October 2011 - 09:22 AM

Yeah it was basically two crippled teams with makeshift rosters engaged in a weak slapfight. There was something about watching Joey Harrington-one of the least clutch quarterbacks I can think of-march downfield for a game winning TD that was just devastating, though. It almost seemed like they were playing for a field goal and "accidentally" scored a touchdown. It looked like Crumpler caught a short checkdown, saw a wide open lane to the end zone, and ran in slow motion while a bunch of defenders stood around.

Yeah, I remember that vividly, Cumpler pretty much used the ref as a screen and glided in for a TD.

#1453081 Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals are 3-2

Posted by X-Clown on 10 October 2011 - 06:57 PM

I didn't bring up Cams name not once in the topic, well other than post 30. Jesus H Christ some of you people are thick

Oh, just because you didn't bring up his name, you weren't talking about him here in bold in the first post?

After leading the Bengals to yet another win Andy Dalton is sky rocketing up the charts for rookie of the year honors. Many so called experts had Cincinnati in the Andrew Luck sweepstakes but the rookie quarterback has made the name "Palmer" disappear from the mouths of Bengal fans. If Dalton keeps up his winning ways he will without a doubt be the best quarterback from the 2011 draft. While other rookie QBs are tearing up the record books Dalton is tearing up the win column.

Man i wanted to draft Dalton so bad, this kid has it.

Ihe threw an 8 yard sideline route completion from his own 41 yard line with 11 seconds on the clock to end the game today (??). Brees would have never done that.

Except when he's trying to break Dan Marino's single season passing yard record.
