#2974303 How long is the Huddle gonna defend Shula?

Posted by Marguide on 22 September 2014 - 11:29 PM

If we aren't complaining about Shula, we're complaining about the backs. If not them, the 0-line (and yes, I know they were bad last night).


Other than Cam, I'm sure we'd all agree that most of our best players are on D, specifically the front 7. So maybe, just maybe, instead of going with the same tired "I hate Shula" mantra, we should ask why our defensive stars gave up 454 yards in offense to the Steelers last night.


Take your blinders off.

#2973844 So... About that extra day off for veterans...

In spite of all of us convincing ourselves the team would never take any opponent lightly, I think we did just that.


We won big vs Detroit, and the team relaxed a bit too much. Hopefully, we've learned our lesson once again. Every opponent in the NFL can kick your ass if your aren't at your best.

#2973168 Something the Huddle always forgets...

The o-line played horrible, no doubt. Maybe it's a lack of talent, but I'm not as sure yet as some of you.


The d-line played equally bad, and we know there is no lack of talent there.


Point is, maybe we just weren't ready for the Steelers for whatever reason. Maybe we overlooked them, maybe the coaches didn't prepare them right, or whatever, but we got our asses kicked all over the field on both sides of the ball.

You guys can b!tch about Shula all you want. What I saw was a team being beaten soundly on both sides of the ball.

The d-line and lb's were pushed around all night. Same with the o-line. We looked like HS kids playing against an SEC powerhouse.

We may be one of the heaviest teams in the league, but we sure didn't act like it last night.

I'd like us to figure out why our stellar D was getting gashed all night long.

#2971600 Why we lost...

Posted by Marguide on 21 September 2014 - 11:16 PM

All anyone wants to talk about is the offense.


Do you people not realize we gave up 454 yards to the Steelers? Let that sink in...454 yards. Maybe it's time we talk about the defense.

#2971419 Nothing more than a blip on the radar

Posted by Marguide on 21 September 2014 - 11:03 PM

We will get over this. I still believe in this team and our coaches.


Yes, we laid an egg tonight. It happens. But for all of you mouthbreathers calling for Shula's head, or Cam's head, stop and realize we gave up 454 yards on defense tonight.  Do you really believe this defense is this bad, or was it just one of those nights?


We are a good team. We will recover. This D is too good to let this happen on a regular basis. So forget your agendas against Shula or against Cam, and get ready to watch us get back to solid football this week against Baltimore.

I doubt the GH saga is really much of a distraction to the team. Most of them probably realized which way it was headed 10 days ago, and have gone about their business


The greater concern is a letdown, thinking Pittsburg is bad and can't beat us. We've only played 2 games, and while I agree we look to be one of the league's best, this is no time to become complacent.

#2959544 Goodell needs to be fired

Posted by Marguide on 17 September 2014 - 08:02 AM

He has totally fuged this situation up start to finish (well, I guess there is no finish yet).\


The person most responsible for the current frenzy is none other than Goodell, and he needs to go.

#2958920 Vegas on the Panthers/Steelers SNF game

Posted by Marguide on 16 September 2014 - 08:04 PM

What do these people know that we don't?


The Panthers look like 7+ point favorites to me. Maybe as much as 10. What are we missing?

Kelvin Benjamin (receiving

Ed Dickson (receiving)

Nate Chandler (pass blocking)

Byron Bell  (run blocking)

AJ Klein

Wes Horton

Kony Ealy

Dwan Edwards

Charles Johnson



Mostly Agree or Disagree?



Interesting that the Panthers coaching staff graded KB higher this week than last. Yet, PFF grades him worse. Tells you how much faith to put in PFF.


Pretty hard to disagree with any of this.


Chandler and Klein both played poorly. Dickson had one opportunity and dropped it. Dwan had the big personal foul and will undoubtedly be hearing from the league. CJ disappeared.


KB did not have a good game overall either. His one-handed catch was spectacular, but leave that out and we'd all be talking about how he had a rough game. He's a rookie though, and should continue to show progress.

#2957234 PFT: NFL may suspend Hardy

Posted by Marguide on 16 September 2014 - 08:59 AM

Frankly, I barely care anymore.


Yes, he may be getting railroaded by media pressure. On the other hand, after agreeing to take $13 million of the Panther's money, he chose to hang out with a coked up woman, let her into his house, show off his guns, etc.


I'm not one to criticize any one of the above behaviors depending on the context. But when you've just been paid that kind of money, the least you could be expected to do is act responsibly, And no one can argue he was acting responsibly.


The person to get pissed at is Hardy. Not the judge, not the fuged up media, not the league office.

#2956034 Who will be our DC next season?

Posted by Marguide on 15 September 2014 - 07:19 PM

Go look at Rivera's resume.


I'm quite familiar with his resume.


No doubt he has a great deal of input into draft picks and FA signings and gives broad advice concerning our D. The game plans though are McDermott's and Shula's along with their respective staffs. That's their job and that's what they do. A HC is too busy with other things to be intimately involved with all aspects of the team.


If you like our record and the way we play you should at least be willing to give all our staff credit for the excellent job they are doing.

The football looks oversized in that pic.


I guess we're just accustomed to it looking like a nerf football in the hands of Cam or Benjamin.

#2947690 Suh pissed at Donkey Kong comments

Posted by Marguide on 13 September 2014 - 06:39 PM

So his friends think he's a bad ass and that he's pissed.


Their comments sound like kids telling their friends "my dad's tougher than your dad".
