#1381158 Can any Panther pull off a Randall Cobb 108-yard kick return

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 09 September 2011 - 11:13 AM

Steve Smith. Problem is he never did kickoffs and doesn't do punt returns anymore.

well, not entirely true. The first time he touched a football for Carolina was on a kickoff for a TD. His KR work was probably a big factor than his PR work in going to the Pro Bowl that year.

the world we live in today.....

where you can't say anything normal or make a joke......without everyone trying to nitpick and interpret a deeper meaning.

#1374597 Keep this in mind about Sunday

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 06 September 2011 - 12:54 PM


hey, if I can eliminate 2 of the 5700 "Oh my gawd Cam is horrible and he set Carolina back 3 decades" threads that will follow simply what realistically should occur this Sunday.......it would be worth it.

#1366778 Cam's Amazing Stats... Not Kidding

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 02 September 2011 - 10:20 AM

What his running ability does is reduce the way that teams can blitz him. When Pittsburgh rushed 6 or 7 and he broke containment, he was wide open with virtually no one around him for 15 yards. When teams have to use spies on him and keep linebackers on him to keep him from running, it opens up the TEs and other guys like backs coming out into the flat. Teams will have to gameplan to stop him which makes other things more effective. If they keep 8 in the box it should keep folks from doubling Smitty. Imagine a reverse where Newton and the RB goes left along with the whole defense and then Smitty or Edwards does a reverse the other direction. The possibilities are endless.

Wait until he figures out that he can slide and run out of bounds, he will easily run for 1000 yards this year without even trying to do it just scrambling on broken plays.

I think early on this season Chud should go HEAVY shotgun. Teams if they blitz heavy.....Cam should be able to find a lane and really hurt them. Could limit the blitzes sent on a young QB.

#1361543 Preseason Impressions: The Quarterbacks

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 31 August 2011 - 07:45 AM

Not all of those were commenting towards you, hence why it seems that you never referenced them!

I am going to have to disagree about Flutie and Brees. In both cases the QBs had done nothing for their respective teams, Flutie having not played and Brees posting a ~67 rating the prior year. In hindsight, yes they were in theory the better option, but pre-season there would have been little attachment to either player.

In Flutie's situation, he had only started approximately 40 games - much like Anderson. In addition both had one good season surrounded by mediocrity and poor seasons. Teams can win despite their QBs, are you going to make the same argument if Jake Delhomme were still here?

Brees was not the long term answer and had played poorly in the two seasons (he sat because of Flutie in year 1) and Rivers was drafted to replace him. There was no attachment to Brees and he had done nothing to show he was capable of winning games for SD.

Like I say, I disagree with your assesment. I feel you are sticking to your guns to prove a point. The coaches made the right call in letting these guys sit, but it wasn't because there was an immediate upgrade on the roster already. In just seems that way looking back now beause we know what the results are.

How can you disagree with Flutie being 21-9 the 3 seasons leading up to starting over a rookie.....and Brees putting in a Pro Bowl season that year as solid evidence that they were better options to start over rookie QBs for teams.

DA and Clausen aren't going to be Pro Bowlers this year (Brees) nor are they coming off years of respectable QB play (Flutie).

and again, have repeatedly stated I don't want Cam to start. Ideally, he would come in after the bye week as it come at a PERFECT time. Ideally, they would have brought in a functional vet like a Hasselbeck or McNabb to hand the job over to Cam when more ready.....but they didn't make those roster moves. They put Cam on a roster with the 2 worst QBs from 2010......that being the case it makes the most sense to start him.

Brees showed in camp and practice and preseason he was a better option than the rookie to start the year....and when the season started he end all doubt.

Clausen has been neck and neck w/ Cam all camp and DAs' only positive is they hardly let him throw and it gets spun he could be better (but he is bad).

The other rookies sat b/c there were better options. That is simply the way it was and it was PROVEN to be that way. If we had Flutie caliber vet Cam would not be starting. If we had a Matt Moore caliber QB Cam would not even be starting........but we don't.....we have the 2 worst QBs from 2010.

#1360013 Gruden on the Panthers

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 30 August 2011 - 12:23 PM

The number one most difficult schedule doesn't help either

and again, the SOS you are referring to applies to the 2010 season.

flawed to use that as reality for the upcoming year.....every team will be different and play different and have new injuries. SOS will be different than what is currently shown.

Like I said, lookat the SOS projected prior to the 2010 season and what it turned out to be.....it is always different.....every year.

#1356479 Cam is not ready

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 27 August 2011 - 10:39 PM

i dunno, Chud was never a huge running guy in Cleveland either, at least not in 2007.

Chud just had a primary RB in 07. He was 5th in yards, 7th in attempts, and 7th in rushing TDs. They ran very well in 07. He put a load on a RB and he delievered. The run setup everything DA was able to do.

He also used a FB often....and he probably should of gone to the pro bowl in 07.

#1356190 Otah back at practice

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 27 August 2011 - 07:46 PM

So you think Otah has zero say on if he plays or not? If a player says they feel like they can't play for a medical reason, I am pretty sure the team won't play them and possibly can't play them legally. Do you really think Delhomme hurt his finger and all of our good players were genuinely injured last year you're delusional.

Yes, I think they were all hurt. If we had hopes of making a playoff run Williams wouldn't of gone to IR but he would have missed games.

#1354989 6/19 75 yards....

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 26 August 2011 - 08:29 PM

Andy Dalton > Cam Newton

Have you watched Dalton this preseason? Have you seen what he does when faced with comparble pressure as Newton?? The result is something much worse......

#1354982 Cam is ready

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 26 August 2011 - 08:24 PM

I will 'try' to give Rivera the benefit of the doubt, but...with him being pass happy & going away from an effective run game (effective at times), he allows the defenses to tee-off & has to try to beat them with precise throws; at this time he is not that accurate, but think he will be fine.

I am concerned about Rivera's understanding of how important it is to get the D on their heals before putting Cam in that position. If it trial by fire, then Rivera has not seen the usu. outcome of doing that to rookie QBs.

when has the run game been effective the past 2 preseason games?

also, why are you going to lean on DeAngleo to go sledding uphill when you know what he can do......and Cam needs all the reps he can get since so much was lost.

#1354248 Cam is not ready

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 26 August 2011 - 02:01 PM

Does anyone in a Panthers jersey look ready other than Olsen, Smitty, and Dwill?

Mare, Thomas Davis, and I will even add Shockey. Shockey I think has been solid. Not as good as Olsen but he isn't expected to be that.

but that is it.

#1352006 Cam is not ready

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 25 August 2011 - 08:06 PM

ya the OL on the right side is atrocious. Im so pissed off about Otah right now

Clausen would have already been hauled off on a stretcher.....and that ain't a knock on Jimmy

#1349732 Jerry Richardson to Cam: No Tattoos, No Piercings

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 25 August 2011 - 10:18 AM

Colin Cowherd is generally an idiot but he was on point today talking about it.

You don't require the same things from Reggie Wayne you do Peyton Manning if you are Indy. Peyton is held to a higher standard. Cowherd has bagged on Romo for years.....backward hats belong to the TEs....not the face of the Dallas franchise.

#1348097 Should the XP Rule Be Changed? (Note: Not Cam Newton Related)

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 24 August 2011 - 09:17 AM

some things don't need to be changed. XP is fine.

Every year a team not converting an XP is the difference maker in a game.
