In Topic: D.Williams...props to a good guy...on and off the field

Just saw a picture of this today, and I'm not resting through all of this to see if it's mentioned, but that man is not a Marine. Unless he has Alzheimer's or something.

Half of his appearance is wrong, not to mention seeing an E-9 Marine in full blues in public is about as likely as seeing a pink unicorn.

 

lol seen any pink unicorns lately??       [I just couldn't resist. I love pink unicorns.]

 

 

 

No, csx. Not everyone has lost loved ones the way he has. To cancer. Young. Four aunts and his mother.

I sympathize. I've lost 6 uncles, all relatively young, to cancer plus my mom and her sister both overcame it. I'm a breast cancer survivor myself.

 

No death ever feels reasonable. But tearing a family apart by cancer is nature being downright cruel. No other way to put it.

what does getting stomped at home in the playoffs do?

 

How about, make them play smarter? Play with a chip on their collective shoulders?

 

Or better yet: study the friggin tape so it never ever ever happens again. Because they know they're better than that.


In Topic: Training Camp Coverage - You Tell Me

All great ideas posted so far. I'd also be curious about how special teams is setting up for this year. We lost some mighty good special teamers. Wondering who will replace them and importantly who will be returning kicks and punts. I'd hate for us to take a step backwards because we made such great improvements last year.


In Topic: Panthers & TWC reach deal on TV programing

16 July 2014 - 08:09 PM

What happens with the FREE local programs they had like The Panther Huddle on FOX and the late Sunday night program on WCNC? Especially if these programs are gone, this deal with twc sucks for the majority of the Carolina residents that do not have nor want twc. That includes me and everyone I know.


In Topic: I was there when...

One I forgot was the Washington game in 2003.  The Foreskins scored with just under 5 min to go to go up 17-13, of course, their classless fans in B of A, many of which saying "I grew up watching them, blah, blah, blah (I'm so sick of hearing that lame-assed excuse from them and Cowgirl fans)", talking poo a-plenty, only to have Jake lead us down for the winning score with under 2 min left, 20-17.  Davis scored the winning TD, but to this day, I still remember that 4th and 1 we had around our own 30 or so on that drive, Fox actually went for it, and instead of Davis up the gut, Jake did a little shovel toss sweep that Davis took up the sideline for about 30 yards on the play, and nearly took it to the house. 

 

Any time you can see Foreskin or Cowgirl fans leave B of A dejected and suicidal, it makes a day worthwhile.

That game was one of my favorite memories. Not just because we beat the 'skins (Me before 1995: Who's your favorite team? Anyone playing the Redskins. lol) but because I saw Delhomme wink & smile at Davis before they took the field for that winning drive. And that alone represents what kind of man Jake was, the kind of teammate he was. He knew how important winning that game was to Davis and everyone in the stadium knew Davis would get the ball to score or we wouldn't score at all. That everyone in those ugly red & yellow colors complained about it just made it sweeter.

 

Then there's the memory of the 1996 team coming back out of the tunnel to run around the field to thank the fans. We all wanted to celebrate, for the winning feeling to never end, and there wasn't a better place to do that then in Ericsson Stadium that night.

 

I could go on forever. So many small memorable moments in so many games.
