This is why we are a losing franchise.
We are arguing which qb is getting the proper football street cred. Trophies don't mean anything to some here. Perception and is the national media giving someone proper credit or blame.
To paraphrase the great poet Allen Iverson. Perception?
We ain't talking about wins. We talkin bout perception.
I don't care if Cam gets another commercial or if Skip Bayless thinks he is any good.
Just friggin win. That's all that matters.
yeah there are a ton of people on this site who don't care if we win so long as cammy cam gets his props
Never seen the like of people who will jump through hoops to make excuses for every other QB in the league, but when someone provides reasons or rationale for Cam, they get all huffy and holier-than-thou and start referring to oral stimulation of testicles.
why can't the selfless heroes who defend us all from the scourge of the "cam huggers" on this site stop talking about balls and dicks
i exorcised by hatred of the patriots once we smacked them down in 2013 on MNF. my seething detestation has morphed to begrudging respect over the past decade and now matured into an acknowledgement of one of the best coaching/quarterbacking tandems in the history of the league. i hate them because they're damn good.
i hope one day we get to be the league's bad guys.
these are pretty much my exact feelings
i absolutely hated the patriots after the super bowl loss. my hatred for belichick and brady was really only rivaled by the vick-era falcons. i hated their bandwagon fans, hated how they were always in the playoffs, hated that masshole my mom worked with who wore his stupid pats sweater every friday and loved to torment panther fans, and everything else that had anything to do with them. that probably peaked in 2007 when they went 18-0 and holy hell was it glorious watching the giants drop them in the super bowl. but over the years as other teams rose, peaked, and collapsed (sometimes going through the entire cycle more than once) the patriots seemed to pretty much remain consistent, and that was something that i grew to respect.
Wilson had no choice on the two pts conversion throw.
Also some history. The last team to win a championship game with 4+ turnovers? 81 49ers.
then people shouldn't call them "touch throws"
also having to go back 30+ years to a completely different era of pro football illustrates the fluky nature of what we saw yesterday. there were 8 quarterbacks who threw at least 20 interceptions that season and the highest rated passer put up a rating of 98.
Just strange to me is all. The vast majority of this site seem more like Cam fans than Panther fans. Panther fans will literally throw every other person on the team under the bus to stick up for Cam. How many times in this thread has it been thrown around about Wilsons great defense being able to keep them in the game? While I completely understand that the Hawks have one of the best defenses we've seen in quite some time, the Panthers have had one of the top defenses in the NFL the last couple years.
Just last week, the defense held the team in the game, despite 2 turnovers, only to have Cam throw a pick 6 to seal it. Strangely, everyone here did nothing but make excuses.
To be fair, it's why I don't post on SR much. The Brees slobbering is unreal. They don't believe he can do any wrong. I'm of the belief he cost us a number of games this year, but it is what it is I guess. It's just on a whole other level here.
it gets annoying to me too but i usually just ignore it. i don't feel the need to crusade against anyone who loves cam more than the panthers. i don't think he's more valuable than the long term ability of the team to compete. i paid actual fuging money to watch the jimmy clausen led panthers in 2010 so it's not a matter of that. the thing is i think he's a central cog in the success of this team going forward and has been asked to do a lot and his mistakes reflect that.
it's hard not to react negatively when some dumbass is going around shitting up threads with their faulty logic and double standards only to accuse other posters of being gay or sexually attracted to our quarterback when they have a problem with it. the topic doesn't matter - if you do that trying to make an argument about which brand of spackle is better then it's still annoying. that kind of bullshit is what drives a lot of the flame wars you see.
and i don't believe for a second that you've never seen anything like this on the internet. i saw it all the time about all kinds of meaningless poo before i even found this site.
There's nothing wrong with Wilson being any of these things.
What Panther fans have a problem with, are the absurd double standards and omissions when it comes to Newton, compared to other QB's.
that's the main thing here and a lot of the "durr cam huggers" people don't even consider that
look if i didn't give a poo what other people thought about the panthers/the NFL in general i wouldn't even post on this forum. i doubt anyone else would either and it's just a given that these topics are going to come up especially with the ubiquitous nature of sports radio and TV coverage.
i mean we all operate with our biases because we're panthers fans. i doubt the saints fan hanging out in this topic is completely objective about drew brees. but the way to fight bias isn't to go full retard in the other direction so that you're just as bad as the "nut huggers" you're supposedly going to war against.
also the current NFL is heavily driven by media coverage and narratives so it's only natural for that to come up for discussion. "experts" undeniably have a lot of influence on casual NFL fans and it's impossible to have an actual fact based discussion a lot of the time because of that.
