well they did give him a small mention under the gary kubiak/mike munchak section
Once you get to that point as a head coach — where the crowd is vociferously booing you at home in your return game from a mini-stroke because you have such a limited handle on how to deal with your quarterbacks — there's very little chance of returning. You basically need a Riverboat Ron–style makeover and resurgence to rebuild your reputation locally. "Go-for-it Gary," perhaps?
yeah my parents have a lot of wild rabbits around their house and i remember our cats always snatching up the baby ones and taking off with them. we usually tried to rescue them the minute we heard that pathetic terror/death squeal from outside but we weren't always able to save them. i think one of the moments that changed me as a person was when i was about 11 or 12 and one of our dogs literally ripped a wild rabbit in half in front of me and my brother on my dad's friend's farm. the rabbit was still alive but his back legs were completely disabled and it was trying to hobble around and get away. we just had to put a .22 to his head and end it for him.
the difference between some rich sissy shooting a hand-fed lion and what you and i have described is that cats and dogs have a hunting instinct and kill because they don't know anything else.
yeah the panthers are only good because their defense is loaded up with first round picks because they've sucked for years amirite.
there's only one first rounder on our front four and that's star lotulelei who was a mid first round pick
charles johnson - 3rd round pick
greg hardy - 6th round
dwan edwards - scrap heap training camp cut signed for $1 before the start of the 2012 season who has played very well for us
colin cole was brought in on an unguaranteed contract after being out of football for two years
mario addison was signed from the redskins' practice squad
frank alexander was a fourth round pick
wes horton is an UDFA rookie
short was the only other relatively high pick as a 2nd rounder
kuechly and davis were both first round picks while klein (not going to worry about blackburn because klein is clearly his successor at WLB) was a fifth rounder
probably the only "name" player in our secondary is quentin mikell. mike mitchell was a nobody on the raiders but he's having a career year right now playing (technically) out of position at free safety.
the panthers have had to rely on a next man up philosophy in the secondary. the current configuration is a ball hawking group that plays smart, unselfish football. a bunch of different players have seen time thanks to a series of injuries:
melvin white - UDFA rookie
captain munnerlyn - 7th round pick
drayton florence - he was a second rounder in 2003 but wasn't on the team on opening day
james dockery - browns UDFA
josh thomas - cowboys 5th round pick
robert lester - UDFA rookie
josh norman - sucks, is a fifth rounder and is probably done as a panther as he hasn't been active in forever and more or less singlehandedly lost us the game against buffalo because he didn't know his assignment in coverage on the last play of the game.
charles godfrey - on IR after blowing out his achilles in week 1. a relic of the previous GM who is all but done as a panther. his biggest play of 2013 involved a blown coverage where he didn't give help over the top on russel wilson's only touchdown pass of the game.
Dat Catfish Alice is obivously jealous that the Panthers got Star in the draft and that the Saints didn't so to make him-herself feel better lets find one negative on the rookie. Btw DCA, Star did just fine against two linemen considered on an all-pro dream offensive line with three first round picks playing up front. Did I say it took two quality linemen to hold the deathstar at bay, silly me DCA is so smart who am I kidding.
go read the draft thread on saints report. that fanbase was devastated that they came so very close to having star fall in to their laps.
related question: is kenny vaccaro still grading out in the red? i haven't looked.
Go watch some tape of when Star was 1 on 1 with the 49ers center. Dude was on roller skates...
Or how about here, where Star was doubled and Short was held and TD BLASTS Hunter for a fumble...
yeah right, that's pretty unimpressive to me.
look at how easily star is consumed by that double team. the saints have some undrafted hog farmer from northeast central arkansas who, according to these advanced stats right here, is better than lotulelei. lol FAIL
