#3178551 Lions vs. Cowboys Gameday Thread

Posted by Marguide on 04 January 2015 - 07:06 PM

How long the Panthers have been around is irrelevant. A "three year old" has a "history." What does that have to do with anything. The Panthers have no name or identity that transcends anything. They have no mystique to counter "Lambo," and it will eat them alive if they have to go there prematurely (this weekend).


Sorry, but this is nothing short of a load of crap. 


Do you realize the Cowboys are the team with the least playoff experience on their current roster of any playoff team? So their guys won't be intimidated by this supposed mystique, but our guys will?


I'm just not buying any of this. If we go to Green Bay or Seattle and lose, it will be because they were the better team that day. Not because of some obscure "mystique".

Doesn't matter. It's not about the players on the teams. 


I'm sure I'm not the only one asking myself, "what the fug is this guy talking about". 


The Cowboy brand?


A 20 year old franchise that's been to the Super Bowl is too green?


It's time for you to "Think About It" a little more rationally.

#3165862 2014 Panthers Rookie Grades

Posted by Marguide on 31 December 2014 - 12:30 PM

Although he won't win it, KB is at least in the discussion for OROY. Given that, I don't see how he could be graded any lower than maybe a B+.


This is an exceptional rookie WR class. Benjamin performing more or less equal with the best of his peers indicates he'll be a big part of this team for years to come.


But yeah, the drops piss me off too.

#3160497 Praise for Bene

Posted by Marguide on 28 December 2014 - 10:24 PM

I have blasted Gettleman over the franchise tag for Hardy, but I have to admit the guy can spot talent. Trading up for Bene was a master stroke. He is a legit corner as a rookie. 


Between him and Norman, it looks like we are strong at the first two CB spots. Who would have thought it going into the year?


Posted by Marguide on 28 December 2014 - 07:21 PM

Simply brilliant. Drunk or sober, you always bring it.

#3150083 Who's better than Norman?

 Now the rubber meets the road against the red hot Falcons and their passing attack.


Red hot Falcons?


They are on a 1 game winning streak. If that's hot, we must be sizzling.

Very poor taste. Anyone who thinks that was okay or funny is on the same level of a-holiness as the guy himself.

Damn iPhone keyboard

You may have a scritum but Dexterity has teaticles. We're reinventing anatomy here.

#3131439 Adrian Peterson's appeal denied

On a serious note, I don't understand how you could do that to any child, let alone one of your own that you presumably love.

What he reportedly did constitutes mental illness in my book.

i really want to know what someone named nestor pellot junior looks like

Given his name and where he resides, it's not that hard to form a mental image.

No offense to my fellow Huddler's with a similar name or from the same area (unless it's deserved).

Some of you try way too hard to find reasons to complain about our QB.

#3119136 Panthers and the Salary Cap

Posted by Marguide on 05 December 2014 - 12:50 AM

  Tagging Hardy cost the team big time this season, and no one would have faulted Gettleman if he would have let Hardy walk.


Plenty would have been raging if we had let him walk. Remember, at the time, most of us assumed they either were close to a long term deal or thinking draft day trade.


Even though it probably would have been an error in hindsight, franchising him with the intent of working out a new deal would have been easier to understand than just renting him.


I honestly believe Gettleman decided to tag Greg for 1 year thinking he was going to still be able to fill some of our obvious holes with decent players and continue last year's success. Then he pretty much struck out with all the FA moves and the team was left with a pretty substandard roster.


And to top it off, we lost Greg anyway. That could not have been foreseen and Dave should not be hammered for not anticipating what happened. We could have lost him to injury and the result would have been the same.


Maybe someday, Gettleman will talk about his plan and how it did or didn't come to fruition during the 2014 season.

#3114355 Should G-man be fired

Posted by Marguide on 01 December 2014 - 08:42 PM

For those of you saying that signing FA's to multi-year deals is what got us into this mess, that is flat out wrong.


What got us into this mess was signing the wrong players to multi-year deals and/or overpaying from a value standpoint. Gettleman earned his chops as a scout and scouting supervisor. If he doesn't have confidence in his ability to pick through players to find good fits then we have more problems than I thought.

#3114321 Should G-man be fired

Posted by Marguide on 01 December 2014 - 08:26 PM

I think Ron is a bad head coach and beyond redemption. Yeah, he was dealt a bad hand, but this team should not be getting blown out week after week. I could elaborate further, but it's already been discussed to death.


As for Gettleman, I'm not a big fan so far, but he has done some good things to go along with the bad. However, if I were in JR's shoes, I would let him know that he is going to be expected to produce a better product in year 3. That means doing what must be done to get the right coaching staff in here, and getting the players that allow us to be competitive.


Renting Hardy for one year at $13 million was a bad decision and would have been a bad decision even if Hardy were still playing. We had too many holes to tie up that much for one year.


And yes, we could have signed a couple of select players to multi-year deals instead of tying up so much in the franchise tag. We may have had to slightly backload the deals to give us flexibility with Cam's contract, but the cap situation should be improving dramatically in the next couple of years, so multi-year contracts should not have been a deal breaker. 


We have to get it right this offseason, or we are perhaps going to waste the best assets we have right now, namely the prime years for Cam and Luke.

#3114000 Rivera says punt blocks on personnel, not coaching

Posted by Marguide on 01 December 2014 - 04:58 PM

If other teams spot weaknesses on tape they can exploit that is NOT player execution. It means they have seen a tendency over time that leaves us in a vulnerable situation.


So please, one of you geniuses that say it isn't the coaches fault, explain away this inconsistency. We'd really like to know. 


Remember, neither Sproles not anyone from the Vikings said they did what they did because they saw a player make a mistake. They explained that it was something they took advantage of after studying tapes of our games.
