#2739833 Getting 8 hrs of sleep/night for more than a week

Posted by KSpan on Yesterday, 09:15 AM

Yep - sufficient sleep and proper hydration are so underrated when it comes to simply feeling good.


#2739692 Bundy Ranch: What You're Not Being Told

My guess would be that a lot of the women who felt strongly enough about it to be there supporting Cliven may not have minded being martyrs (in their eyes) if it made the feds look bad. Without knowing who all was involved in developing 'the plan' and who all was on board with it, this specific piece contains incomplete information at best and has a tremendous slant at worst.

See, that's where I disagree. I think plays like Cannon's leg whips are the dirty ones. Those plays can end someone's career. Roman's late hit on Smith was never going to come close to doing that. I'm not being a Panthers homer, just don't find plays like Roman's to be near as bad. There are way worse plays in football.


I agree 100% that things like leg whips or intentionally rolling up on a guy are incredibly dangerous and have no place in the game, but in sticking with this example a leg-whip can happen in the moment. If a guy does it once I *might* give him the benefit of the doubt, but hitting someone two or three yards deep in the endzone is intentional and dirty. The intent is irrelevant because the action itself is so blatant.

Bet you'll feel better the first time you see him do it to Brees or Graham.



Not really, because it would still be a jackass thing to do and possibly a critical penalty. Drill them legally or right at the whistle all day long, but no room for BS like what he pulled.

People overplay the late hit on Smith thing. If you've ever played sports, you know that type of stuff happens all the time and it's not personal. It's pretty easy to get caught up in the moment when you're playing aggressively and angry. That hit was never going to hurt someone.

Disagree. That was blatant and completely intentional. Julius Peppers' hit on Rodgers a few years back or possibly even Cannon's leg-whip on CJ fall into the 'stuff happens' category, but Harper's falls into the completely intentional 'gigantic douchebag' category, similar to Cameron Wake popping Cam in the mouth last year. Not meaning to be a Panthers homer here but those are the examples I can think of at the moment.


#2735395 Worst draft picks since 2000 for every team

Posted by KSpan on 10 April 2014 - 08:43 PM

Rumor and speculation. Neither Hurney nor JR has ever said this happened. One of many examples of a rumor getting repeated so much around here it becomes accepted as true.

Incorrect.

Clausen said Fox told him the Panthers tried to trade up with the Rams to get him but that it didn't work out.




#2732444 Arthur Blank “bothered” at Falcons’ reaction to a hit on Matt Ryan

Posted by KSpan on 09 April 2014 - 06:54 AM

Since the QB is sliding forward, you are right.


Direction of the feet-first slide is irrelevant and the hit was illegal. Once the QB starts to slide, forward progress is stopped and he is no longer eligible to be hit. Momentum and yardage gained counts in a head-first dive, but there are also no protections given in that scenario.

at least matty got the yellow flags. Cam wouldn't have.


:)


Nope, because Cam would have gone down headfirst. I'm sure that he has, but I can't recall Cam ever sliding like that.

Where is he projected to go now

 

Probably to an orthopedic surgeon.




#2729614 Jukebox go-to song

Posted by KSpan on 07 April 2014 - 03:27 AM

So I was at a bar last night and someone played the ghost buster's theme song 19 times in a row. Got me thinking, what's the best bang for your buck? My go-to jukebox song is this 6:09 gem:



Just when you think it ends, there's a drum solo. What's your go-to?


It's actually Ghostbusters.

Jager Bombs - maybe more of a shot, but I like making them on a mixed-drink scale. Goes back to my band days... great memories.


#2721545 The Canadian Farm Beast Gets An Update

I thought he was cut


The whole waived/IR thing - since no one claimed him, he stayed with the team.


#2719501 Roddy White pays up!

Posted by KSpan on 28 March 2014 - 12:15 PM

I don't really understand the bet. The other dude had nothing to lose this the "bet" should be null and void.


It wasn't so much a bet as it was Roddy running his mouth on Twitter. Either way the statement was made and Roddy's options were to welch, which he attempted, or to pay up.


#2719340 Roddy White pays up!

Posted by KSpan on 28 March 2014 - 11:12 AM

As he should, but good for him for going what appears to be above and beyond (even if it was the PR department's idea). Nobody likes a welcher.


#2718695 Charles Godfrey may move to nickel back

Posted by KSpan on 27 March 2014 - 05:26 PM

I would trust Godfrey manning Graham more so than Captain.


Godfrey and Anderson beat the snot out of Graham that last game of 2012. It was beautiful.
