#2081524 Dear media, please stop telling me Andrew Luck is good

Posted by charlotte49er on 06 January 2013 - 08:28 PM

This. Your average rookie QB looks like hot garbage. Luck was somewhat better than that. But he was thoroughly outclassed by RG3 and Wilson this year, and was average among all QBs.

Wilson and RGIII started with better teams than Luck and the Colts.

2011 Redskins were 6 -10! RG3 led to them 10-6 record so he improved them 4 games
2011 Seahawks were 7-9! Russle Wilson led them to 11-5 so he improved them 4 games.
2011 Colts were 2-14! Colts finished to 11-5 so he improved them 9 games! And he did it with 2 HC's!

Cam Newton in his 2nd year improved the Panthers from 6-10 to 7-9. 1 GAME LOL

COLTS are making a game of it. Better than the teams did yesterday! (And after loosing the OC Bruce Arians this morning!)

Thank Goodness for Adam Vinatieri! (Panther fans remember him from your only Super Bowl Appearance!)


#2080072 So wait, im confused (cap space related.)

Posted by charlotte49er on 06 January 2013 - 03:02 AM

Maybe this will help?

Carolina's nightmare cap situation


We took a look at the New Orleans Saints’ salary-cap situation. It’s far from ideal, but at least the Saints have some obvious ways to free up cap space.

But I’m now looking at the numbers for the Carolina Panthers, and it sure looks like they’re in a much worse situation than the Saints. There simply aren’t a lot of easy escape routes for the Panthers.

The Panthers would lose cap space if they released Smith, Stewart or Godfrey. They’d basically break even on Anderson.

Beason and Williams could be candidates for release, but only if the Panthers designated them as June 1 cuts and spread their cap hit over two years, instead of one.

The Panthers currently have $136 million committed toward a 2013 salary cap that is expected to be slightly more than $120 million. Let’s look at some guys who could be on the cap bubble.

The bottom line here is the Panthers are in a brutal spot. They're not going to be able to do much of anything to improve themselves in free agency. They're going to be subtracting from their roster, and the only viable way to add to it will be through the draft.

And someone wants to step into, litterally, this kaka as a GM for the Panthers? Jerry "Jones" Richardson better have some deep pockets.

Same way with a HC. You better hope if the Panthers have to spin off Vets in favor of Rookie Draft pics. That Rivera has a Chuck Pagano/Bruce Arians clone somewhere.

#2070108 John Kilgo thinks Carolina Huddle posters are idiots

Posted by charlotte49er on 31 December 2012 - 11:54 AM

Is Kilgo still on the air? I would have figured that they got rid of his lazy @$$ when Packer went away!

WFNZ is like the Charlotte Observer. Neither has had an original thought in at least 5 years. When's the last time that WFNZ actually broke a story on sports? Al the Observer does is cut and paste from the AP. It's sad when the Gaston Gazzette and the Rock Hilll Herald cover Charlotte sports better than the Observer does. (Both actually have beat writers for NASCAR, Panthers and Bobcats!)

All WFNZ can do is read posts on here and listen to national sports writers for their stories. It's all just Duke sux, no Carolina sux, no Duke sux, no Carolina sux. What about the Wolfpack and Wake. WHO??

I don't even think the WFNZ or the Observer even send anyone to the post game press conference. Part of a Sports Radio Station should be about news, just not letting callers spout off!

Seriously, Engineering is a great profession to go into. There are almost as many different engineering fields as there are doctors.

Posted by charlotte49er on 27 December 2012 - 08:37 PM

He had one heck of a game plan for Desert Storm! And even though I wasn't officially in the military over there, I never met one person that anything but praise for him. He was the closest thing to a modern day Gen. George Patton and Ike rolled into one, that we will ever see.

RIP General!

Just remember, wear sunscreen.

#2054601 What is the US Coming Too

Posted by charlotte49er on 19 December 2012 - 04:27 PM

This is what the world is coming to and WE let it happen!

WE allow feed companies to put hormones in animal feed so that the cows, chickens, pigs fatten up faster and the farmer can take them to market faster.

Then we can't understand why girls in the 5th and 6th grades are having their menstrual cycle and have bodies that used to be 20 year olds. And 14 YO boys having sex with their teachers! and pedophiles are all over young girls!

WE allow meat producers to irradiate our food to kill harmful bacteria. Meat that would never been allowed 10 years ago to be processed! Yet people continue to get sick more and more from tainted meat!

Syrian Government came to the US State Dept and asked for $1 Billion in guns to fight the rebels. (The US is the #1 exporter of military weapons in the World! And we wonder why everyone hates us?) The US State Dept informed them that it was against the law for the US Government to authorize giving weapons to a foreign power. The the US Dept of Foreign Aid (A different Dept of the Federal Government) informed Syria that due to their "Internal Conflict" (You notice that they didn't use Civil War.) That Syria qualified for $10 Billion in Foreign Aid! The Syrian Government then went back to the State Dept and said can they use $1 Billion of that to buy weapons. Our State Dept said, OF COURSE. We can authorize the sale of $1 Billion worth of weapons immediately! (More if they want them!)

Parents use Grand Theft Auto and every other violent video game as baby sitters for Children!

I have been an advocate for 30 years that EVERYONE serves their country. Either before College or after college. If you graduate from High School EVERYONE either has to serve in the Military or some other Dept of the Federal Government. (US Forestry Service, BLM, BIA, FBI, CIA ect.) For no LESS than 2 years. (If you go to college, you can defer that until you graduate.) IF you drop out of High School, then you must serve until your 20th Birthday!

There's a reason that everyone in Israel and Switzerland has/had a gun. They are required to serve in their Military! Even Dr Ruth (The sex Doctor!) carried a gun and served in the military.

I firmly believe that if this was law, it would weed a lot of these sickos out!

WE have allowed the Federal Government to kick religion out of schools! I can remember reciting the Pledge of Allegiance every morning in grade school. (At least Kindergarten and 1st grade.)

WE have allowed Dept Stores to replace Merry Christmas with Happy Holidays!

When is the last time we have taken our children or grandchildren to church?

Then WE wonder why s*** like this happens!

Yes, WE are responsible! If you aren't part of the solution, then you are part of the problem!

Mass murder at a school is nothing new. http://en.wikipedia....Charles_Whitman (SADLY!)

However it seems to me that they are coming WAY more frequently.

#2052662 Disciplining a 15-yo..?

Posted by charlotte49er on 18 December 2012 - 01:14 PM

Dont think youre prying at all Inimicus, your question is very relevant & influential on the situation...

I picked something up from my wife's aunt a few years back. When people are at your house and one of their kids does something, the 1st time its on them to handle it, after that its on you as its your house. Now I get this is the 1st tiem this happened, but it is my son. I do not even want to consider what could have been, Im just glad nothing did happen to my boy...

This is a huge mistake on her part, Im do not agree with a light punishment. I have doubts my mother-in-law would have punished her accordingly. So I am.. But I want to be smart and teach her a lesson....

Actually, I agree with this to a point. (First punishment is on the parent.) But "your house, your rules" also has to come into play.

When my 1st neice was young, she was around 6-7 yo. My sister and BIL were down for Thanksgiving, I was up from NC. My neice wanted to play piano. So my Mom and neice sat down at the piano and my Mom started to play. I was sitting next to the piano, My sister was in another chair in the living room. Everyone else were out in the den.

My Mom started to play, however my neice just wanted to bang on the keys. My Mom very politely told her that it wasn't good to bang on the keys, and suggested they play a song together. My neice stopped and my Mom started to play chopstix. My neice started banging on the keys again with her fists. My Mom kept playing and my neice hauled off and hit her on the arm.

I waited about 10 second for my sister to step in, finally, I told my neice. "You do that again, and I'll put you over my knee. My neice defiantly told me that I couldn't, I wasn't her parent. I gave her my serious look and told her. "Parent or not, you just hit my Mother. And no one hits my Mother!" My niece said she was sorry to me. I told her she needed to apologize to her Grandmother. To which she did. Case closed.

My sister never said a word to her daughter or to me. I kind of expected my Sister to say something to me about not having any chldren and threatening to discipline hers. But I was glad she didn't. (I might have put her over my knee.)

It may have not been my place to step in. My Mom basically raised me by herself. I didn't care who you were, you showed her respect.

Each of the 3 Credit reporting power to be have a place where you can challenge something on your credit report. State your case and I'll be you will have it over turned. I had a similar problem it was taken off my credit report.

I challenged things even if they were right. Some came off my report and my credit score rose.

Random act of kindness.

It's always good karma to be able to pay it forward.

I'll continue to keep my eyes open for more.

Lawsuit? Do you even know what you are talking about?

Yes, I know what I'm talking about!

As a Season Ticket holder. You purchase your tickets with a resonable assurance that the game will be played. (Baring an act of God.)

If 9-11 can only temporarily postpone the season, a player committing suicide can't.

All the business's that depend onthe game ot be played, with food, liquor, etc. Would certainly bring a lawsuit for loss revenue.

I'm not being heartless here, I'm being realistic.
