#2993426 Per ESPN: Rivera says Cam and Luke "have to be perfect"

Posted by Marguide on 01 October 2014 - 07:36 PM

My problem with the quote has nothing to do with Cam or Luke. It's that it removes responsibility from everyone else.

If everyone else is waiting around for those 2 to save the day, we're in trouble. That's why I think it was an ill-advised thing to say.

Puts more pressure on our 2 best players who are already under tremendous pressure.

 

Takes pressure off everyone else.

 

Ron, I hope like hell you know what you're doing.




#2991528 This week Shula says we have to find ways to get in the endzone

Posted by Marguide on 01 October 2014 - 01:21 AM

Look, I get the Shula hate. I really do. But many of you are just being childish about comments that any Carolina fan should understand. I'll even interpret them for you:

 

We have to do a better job of converting our red zone opportunities. Too often we have been stopped by foolish penalties, untimely sacks, and a failure to execute.  We have to stop settling for field goals. All of us understand that won't be good enough to get you many W's in this league. We are going to get to work to try to get these problems behind us.

 

That's what he's saying when he says we need to get in the end zone. We may not like his playcalling, or we may not like the results, but don't act like the guy is a blithering idiot. That says more about you than him.




#2989895 Dave Gettleman?

Posted by Marguide on 30 September 2014 - 12:18 AM

I'm not a GM. My livelihood has had nothing to do with football. I'm a fan.

 

So no, I'm not able to point to a specific move Gettleman could have made to strengthen our tackle situation. But you will never convince me that we couldn't do better than Bell (at least at LT) and Chandler.

 

 




#2989788 Rivera: Panthers Tempted to Unleash Cam?

Posted by Marguide on 29 September 2014 - 10:45 PM

Tonight Alex Smith has managed to move the ball downfield many teams without actually having to throw downfield. Must be a nice luxury to have.

 

Did you see how well KC ran the ball? Did you see KC's OL pushing around NE's DL?

 

The OL is the root of the problem. 




#2989775 Shula Has To Go Soon

Posted by Marguide on 29 September 2014 - 10:40 PM

You want to fire Shula? Ok. I can accept that, even though he gets waaaay to much blame here (and Gettleman doesn't get enough), but please, don't even mention Chud coming back.

 

Forget fantasy football and flashy stats. He sucked, period. The only reason he "improved" the second half of his second year is because he was forced to change his philosophy by RR.

 

Given a choice between Shula and Hue Jackson, I'll take Hue all day. Given a choice between Shula and Chud, it would be Shula hands down.




#2989716 Rivera: Panthers Tempted to Unleash Cam?

Posted by Marguide on 29 September 2014 - 10:12 PM

Did any of you read the article before you went on a rant?

 

What Rivera was saying is they have to manage Cam's health. He mentioned listening to both the trainers and Cam and trying to do the right thing long term. Of course he has been held back, but it hasn't been as much by Rivera or Shula as it has by his ankle and ribs.

 

This is a lot of outrage over nothing.




#2984605 Sean McDermott

Posted by Marguide on 28 September 2014 - 03:20 PM

When our defense plays well, all credit goes to Rivera.

 

When our defense plays poorly, all blame goes to McDermott.

 

That's how it works, right?




#2979389 "Let's win one for the chipper"

Posted by Marguide on 26 September 2014 - 05:11 PM

I just remembered this but at the game last sunday this little old black lady was sitting in front of me and I made mention that we were on offense and we should be quite. 

 

She should be quite what? 

 

Quite pleased? Quite pissed? Quite ambivalent?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry, had to do it.

My inspirational message...

 

Let's win one for the stripper.




#2977488 Panthers Sign Tauren Poole to Practice Squad and cut Lache Seastrunk

Posted by Marguide on 25 September 2014 - 10:18 AM

Every time we sign a guy "he's gonna be a star".

 

Every time we let a guy go "he's gonna be a star for someone else".

 

We sure do sign (and release) a lot of future stars.

 

And you know what's really weird? Apparently we ruin them during their short stay, because they almost never seem to amount to anything once they leave here.

 

We must be doing something wrong. Probably Shula's fault.




#2976839 Finally here, Baltimore blood-and-guts week

Posted by Marguide on 24 September 2014 - 07:19 PM

Big props for the Omar reference.

We'll find out a lot about this team on Sunday.


#2976266 Should we sit Cam?

Posted by Marguide on 24 September 2014 - 12:10 PM

Yes, sit him. Let DA take over. Hers another thing to think about. What happens if we sit him, DA has a excellent year and we have to sign Cam to a big contract after the season. What happens?! We still dont know if he will ever be 100% after he has had a season to heal, so do we just sign him to a mega deal and cross our fingers and gamble he will be back to full form?! What if we do that and he comes back like RGIII and never gets back to full form?! Meanwhile we have 100 plus million tied up in him.

Things can get very very intresting fast.. Also what if DA signs with another team after his banner year, come next season Cam gets his cotract, hes still nkt back to form and we will be without DA to save us. Sue the complete opposite could happen and we live happily ever after, but you have to look at all angles

 

Serious question for you...are you on drugs?




#2976242 todays practice tweets

Posted by Marguide on 24 September 2014 - 11:57 AM

The secrecy behind the Davis injury is weird. 

 

Agree. Maybe it's something personal, like his balls hurt or something.

 

Is it just me, or is Gary Williams constantly injured? Is he the new Otah?




#2976092 Should we sit Cam?

Posted by Marguide on 24 September 2014 - 10:25 AM

Passing wise he is still better than DA so he should play

 

Absolutely.

 

People forget that we were one gift interception away from losing at Tampa. I like DA a lot, but he's a backup for a reason.

 

As an aside, I'm a bit concerned that Cam hasn't recovered better from his offseason surgery. Hopefully, it's okay and is still healing properly, but it seems to be a very slow process.
