#3215640 So tell me

Posted by bigdog10 on 21 January 2015 - 11:17 AM

For me it is not hating the team.  I envy them.  They are exactly what I want the Panthers to become.  I think Wilson is over hyped, but all he does is make plays.  The Seattle defense is among the greatest to ever play the game.  Especially in today's game where the rules have been altered to cater to the offense.


I'm sick of the 12th man garbage, and the seismologist explanations of how the earth moved when Lynch ran it in against the Saints.  I think the whole thing is overdone.  Seattle has some great fans, but their noise is more attributed to creative stadium design rather than "the 12's"

Clearly the Seahawks have sold their souls to the devil

#3209566 Any thoughts on Jamison Crowder from Duke?

Posted by bigdog10 on 18 January 2015 - 08:15 AM

He's worth taking in the fifth. The guy is a great returner and catches everything.

He's been the second biggest reason for dukes recent success. The first obviously being the head coach.

The "high-character" thing is such a farce. It's the NFL. If you fielded a team full of guys with no records, you'd have the worst team in the history of the league. I also don't think Jerry really cares about that - I think it's something the media has propagated. Hell, the starting quarterback was sanctioned for theft in college. 


It's also an incredibly lazy way to run an organization.  Some of these young guys need someone to invest in them and help make them better.  


That is one of the great things about the NFL.  It gives some guys the chance to make a great living and impact their current and family situations where otherwise they may not have that chance.


By only drafting "good" and "clean" guys, you miss the opportunity to really help make the change.


I'm not an advocate of drafting all low character, but with strong leaders in your locker room and a strong coaching staff, i think you can really make an impact on some of these guys.

I don't know if Matt Forte is the type of "pound-it" back that Fox wants in his backfield. I'm also not sold that they have the OL to do what he wants to do. Based on what I see in CHI and know about Fox, he's got a lot of work to do on the offensive side of the ball. Doesn't seem that they hired a coach to take advantage of what was already there.

Nope. They will need another back. Could see them taking a flier on gurley if he is around in the second when they pick.

I know I'm not the only one who caught Roddy White's catch over Nakamura on the screens at 1:38.

Lol. I saw that too when I first watched it.

Pissed me off until I remembered that we've clinched nearly as many division titles in their dome the last two years than they've won since realignment.

#3205495 Panthers' Schedule Release Date

Posted by bigdog10 on 14 January 2015 - 10:01 PM

Schedule definitely has some intriguing games this year


Indy at Home

Green Bay at Home

Eagles at Home

Seattle on the road

Dallas on the road


I would think the first Luck-Cam showdown of their young careers would warrant a prime time spot.  Would also think the return to Seattle could be appealing.


My guess would be we have a max of three PT games this coming year (minimum of two with the SNF game at Seattle not happening).

Home vs Indy on MNF

Away at Seattle on SNF

Home vs Tampa on TNF


just my 2 cents.


#3201293 Cam's Most Important Offseason Yet

Posted by bigdog10 on 12 January 2015 - 06:09 PM

Don't underestimate the importance of a full healthy offseason and workouts with his receivers.

That should help him leaps and bounds.

I'm critical of Cam, but the deck was stacked against him this year.

#3198130 Nationwide is on your side, Colts @ Broncos

Posted by bigdog10 on 11 January 2015 - 04:23 PM

I hope each QB throws seven picks and the game ends with a punt being snapped over the head of the colts punter and he kicks it backwards out of the end zone for the game clinching safety.

#3197687 Thank you, Huddle. #KeepPounding

Posted by bigdog10 on 11 January 2015 - 02:42 PM

Proud to be a fan of this team.

#3197411 one this for certain, we'll be the favorites to win the South next year

Posted by bigdog10 on 11 January 2015 - 01:29 PM

We've won this division two straight years all the while being in the worst cap situation in the nfl.

Gettleman with a little bit of cash and his eye for talent in the drafts, and we should own this division.

Atlanta will be decent because of their offense.
New Orleans is on roller skates going backwards do man ice covers hill.
Tampa is Tampa. Rookie QB who needs creativity in play calling for his success stuck with a conservative old school coach. What could go wrong.

I honestly think we take this division over for the next couple years.

#3196009 Cam Newton

Posted by bigdog10 on 11 January 2015 - 12:07 AM

We, as a fan base, need to come to grips with what we have in Cam.

An extremely gifted and athletic QB who has potential to be top ten, but will more than likely always find himself in the 10-20 range.

Are we going to win playoff games with him as our QB? Yes.
Are we going to win a Super Bowl with him as our QB? Maybe
Are we going to go 7-9 with him as our QB? Yes

He's wildly inconsistent on two aspects of his game that can't be coached: instinct and touch. I'm not sure he will ever fix them. If he figures out a way, he could be an all timer. If he doesn't, we will continue to see performances like this one.

#3195888 Congrats! You wanted it and it happened. Rivera and Shula is here to stay...

Posted by bigdog10 on 10 January 2015 - 11:57 PM

You wanted to make the playoffs and we did! Despite having a losing record, we were the first mentally challenged Olympian to cross the finish line and make the playoffs because everyone else stopped to pick daisies at midfield. The reward is having a tremendously lower draft pick and getting to keep our tremendously awful coaches. Shula isn't going anywhere. Rivera isn't either. No one is getting fired. Everyone keeps their job another year. WOOO HOOOO! Hope you guys are happy :D

You know what, now that you mention it, I think I would have much rather started the offseason six or seven weeks ago. To hell with our young core getting a playoff win. To hell with our young core standing toe to toe with the Seahawks for three quarters. Clearly we are going to need a higher draft pick on each round because our GM is absolute garbage when it comes to finding valuable players. Clearly we should completely gut the entire franchise and give Cam a new HC, and his third offensive system to learn in his fifth year. That will surely turn this around and give us a shot to be a dynasty.

#3186750 Addison, Ealy, Horton -- Do you trust them?

Posted by bigdog10 on 08 January 2015 - 10:51 AM

If you guys recall, Thomas Davis was drafted for this type of Game.


Before anyone hammers me, i'm not comparing Wilson to Vick (think the Atlanta version, not the philly or nyj one), but there are similarities.  The ability to move around in the pocket and make plays are what both of those guys can you hurt you with.  We drafted Davis to neutralize that threat and he has done a dang good job of it.


Prior to TD's arrival, this franchise had three things that you could count on would happen against our defense (we would get abused by tight ends, beaten by back up QB's, and gashed against Running QB's).  The emergence of Davis as one of the best linebackers in the league has nullified the latter.


I'm sure Rivera is going to play a ton of zone.  He always does, but I honestly hope he lets TD spy Wilson on the medium yardage downs.  Allow the tackles and ends to pressure Wilson, and then when he decides to take off, have TD going after him.  We haven't really had the luxury of doing that because we were very concerned about our corner and safety play and their abilities to matchup one on one on the outside.  That concern has been reduced with the play of Bene and Norman.  


Spy Wilson with Davis, let Bene and Norman handle their receivers, let Luke take away the tightend, bring Roman into the box to take away the run and let Boston roam.  I'd love to see some 3rd and 7's or 3rd and 8's with this plan

#Feastmode is well done.  Credit to whoever came up with that.
