#2915836 Is Cam Newton Really A Franchise QB

Posted by Marguide on 30 August 2014 - 02:21 AM

Different year.

 

Same sh!t.




#2915093 Panthers haven't won their season opener since 9/7/2008, 0-5 since then

Posted by Marguide on 29 August 2014 - 01:52 PM

That's a long ass time. Bush was still president. The stock market hadn't crashed yet. Steve Smith was suspended, while Jake Delhomme and Dante Rosario were heroes.

 

Why do you think Week 1 vs. Tampa Bay will be different? I personally don't. I see us going 11-5 this year, but I think we lose Week 1. 

 

So your whole rationale is based on the fact that we haven't won the opener in 5 years. No other factors, circumstances or other considerations offered.

 

Great post...




#2914275 I think Webb should be our second string quarterback

Posted by Marguide on 28 August 2014 - 10:54 PM

Lol, no he hasn't, but I'm sure you will prove it.

 

I am certain he has the most combined yards for their first 3 years of any QB in NFL history, and I'm also certain he had the most passing yards through his first 2 years of any QB in NFL history. Perhaps someone here knows if that still holds through his first 3 years.

 

Any way you measure it, his performance has been spectacular. 

 

Not sure why I bother with you frankly.




#2914142 I think Webb should be our second string quarterback

Posted by Marguide on 28 August 2014 - 10:10 PM

So how would you rate Cam on reading the D, going through his progression and putting the ball on the money.

 

Uh...I don't know, I'd say he's been pretty decent considering he's been the most prolific passer for the first 3 years in the history of the NFL.

 

But I'm guessing that's not good enough for you.




#2914041 I think Webb should be our second string quarterback

Posted by Marguide on 28 August 2014 - 09:45 PM

Every preseason it's the same thing. Cam looks kind of mediocre, and the skeptics come out of the woodwork to suggest we'd do better to start Anderson or Webb or whoever. Then the real bullets start flying and they all have to crawl back into their hiding places.

 

Some people never learn.

 

As to the original question, I too prefer Anderson over Webb. 




#2907068 Tiquan Underwood Cut

Posted by Marguide on 24 August 2014 - 03:16 PM

I have a confession to make. I was happy about him getting cut. Apparently, I have a prejudice against people with really tall hair.

 

I watched him play last year at Tampa and thought he would be a good pickup. Deep down though, I was never comfortable with the hair. Then I found out he actually bought a round trip airfare weekly to get it shaped up, so that brought his decision making into question. And to make matters worse, the hair didn't even look good on him. It wasn't possible for me to evaluate him as a player, because all I could think about was the hair thing.

 

Just had to get that off my chest. And I apologize to any and all Huddlers with hair that extends more than 12" above their skull.




#2902264 Melvin White

Posted by Marguide on 22 August 2014 - 11:33 AM

... how do u guys think about his chance of being the next Gamble for us?


•••Sent from my couch while fuging the Saints•••

 

White is a much more physical player than Gamble.

 

He may someday be our number 1 like Gamble, but their playing styles are much different.




#2902226 Norman climbing out of Rivera's dog house

Posted by Marguide on 22 August 2014 - 11:15 AM

Cam changed for the better.  He was too emotional, just not on the field to the opponent. 

 

 

Huge difference in circumstances though, and I'm sure you realize that.

 

Cam was our best player on the field from his first start onward. Norman's production on the field has never been anything beyond mediocre, and that's probably being kind.

 

If and when Josh "figures it out mentally", my expectations are that he becomes an average CB at best, although with above average ball skills. Some speak of his talent as if he is going to grow into a Revis or Sherman. Personally, I don't see it.




#2899662 Possible DE Trade?

Posted by Marguide on 20 August 2014 - 09:51 AM

FACT : The Panthers have what probably is the deepest group of Defensive Ends in the entire NFL.

 

 

When NFL teams look for valuable trades, they first look to teams that have talent to spare in the position of need. We all know this, it is obvious. The Panthers have 3rd string defensive ends that would be definite second string or possibly even situational first string players around the NFL.

 

 

Here are the locks to make the team, in order of skill level:

 

Charles Johnson

Greg Hardy

Kony Ealy

Frank Alexander (after 4 game suspension)

Mario Addison

Wes Horton

 

Listed are 6 defensive ends that belong on NFL rosters. However, there is probably only room for 5 on the 53 man roster.

 

I smell a trade.

 

 

 

Consider this as well...

 

They don't have to do anything now (before roster cut downs) due to Alexander's suspension. They can wait until the season has started when the demand may be higher due to injuries.

 

If they can't work a deal prior to week 5, then what do they do? Assuming all our guys are healthy, who goes?




#2898844 Byron Bell starting is a "fait accompli"

Posted by Marguide on 19 August 2014 - 06:57 PM

I've been down on Byron's play since his first season starting, but it looks like he's starting to put it together.

 

Great for him and the team. Keep doing well and the Huddle's harsh criticism will turn into a love fest quicker than you can say "Philly Brown".




#2897498 Guys..

Posted by Marguide on 18 August 2014 - 08:53 PM

All this shows is there is at least one NFL player actually worse than Fua.

 

 




#2896166 Josh Norman was pulled

Posted by Marguide on 18 August 2014 - 12:10 AM

Unfortunately, I think Josh is one of those guys that will never put it together mentally.

 

It's a shame, because the guy could maybe be good if he could get his act together. He hasn't done it yet in spite of the obvious consequences, so he likely never will.

 

I don't know Josh and he may be a fine person. From a casual observer standpoint though, he seems to be a case of "you can't fix stupid".




#2886584 does barner make the team?

Posted by Marguide on 11 August 2014 - 04:21 PM

...but honestly he just doesn't look like an NFL player.

 

This.

 

Some guys just look out of their element once they hit the NFL, and to me, Barner is one of those guys.  Can't see him sticking in the league much beyond this year. Someone will give him a chance after we cut him, but unless he turns it around big time, he needs to start thinking about a second career.




#2885636 Stewart on the practice field

Posted by Marguide on 10 August 2014 - 09:51 PM

 Throw in his receiving ability and pass blocking skills and he's superior to DeAngelo especially with DeAngelo's age.

 

 

  He's the better blocker, receiver, and put up similar stats ...

 

 

Stewart is the most rounded RB on our squad (speed, power, agility, vision, athleticism, blocking, receiving, etc). 

 

 

again Stewart has the edge in receiving, blocking, and power........that's about it

 

This is perhaps the greatest Huddle myth. Our version of the Loch Ness monster.

 

PFF rated RB's for a 3 year period on their blocking skills. Who was not just bad, but actually the worst in the league? J Stew.

 

Don't believe me, fine, read it yourself here:

#2878182 Peter King - Pablo =Panthro
