I registered to ask that you please stop making stupid threads.
I've lurked this board for years because there is great information available about my favorite sports team. This is the best website on the internet to get up to date info on the Panthers. However, having to weed through all the idiotic, pointless threads gets very tiresome.
There is a smack forum for this nonsense. Please leave this section to the adults who want to discuss the team and important aspects of football.
Now go give mommy a kiss and run along. Have a good day at school.
But Chico (welcome, by the way), would it not have been easier to simply ignore the post? Secondly, didn't you just talk smack in the non-smack forum, thus violating all that you hold dear and sacred?
My point? I may agree with you, but when I read a post that is unworthy of my expectations, I just move on. I am not sure that we want Panther fans going at each other at a time like this. Perhaps your second post will be one of positive contribution and not harsh, personal criticism.
I realize that this is not a playoff game, but it reminds me of the Rams "X Clown" game in 2003. They had a loud crowd, a ridiculously long home winning streak, and nobody thought they would lose.
The Seahawks are a lot like us. I would say that our middle pressure is better, but their defensive backs are better. We edge them with the LBs. Offensively, they are not that great, just opportunistic. We are the same.
Here is to hoping that the Seahawks left the Panthers a nice set of blue prints. They really struggled vs. the read option. Cam is not as good vs. the blitz as Wilson, and you can bet we see a ton of pressure. Screens should be practiced a bit this week.
Ryan is a gambling DC who only beats you if his athletes are better than yours. His system is sound, but I have never seen him out-think an opponent. Shula can outsmart him.
I like our chances against them. I am concerned that Bell and the crowd noise allows pressure, and I am concerned that the Saints will treat this like a playoff game. They should because the Panthers will
Bell didn't seem to have any major big fug ups like in prior games coaches film hasn't come out yet either though. I will say Chandler looked pretty good at OT with the amount of time he got that position.
Frank Garcia on WFNZ (former Panther linemen if you are a young un) said he was talented. He joked about him moving to OL when it happened. He has since done a 180 and said he could be the next LT.
Personally, I think that RG has been figured out. He cannot run in this league because he is too frail.
RG III is the product of a college system and conference that was characterized by wide-open offenses and games that looked like basketball scores. Even now he cannot succeed in the worst division in football. They will finish last.
Bandwagons are how true fans are born. It is OK, and I am glad to see my team creating excitement in others who were not fans before. They may jump when you do, yell and scream with each score, but you have depth and passion for the team, something that will take them time to develop. Every team with a national following--the Patriots, Steelers, Cowboys, Packers, for instance, have 1 thing in common.
Sure, it rubs you wrong to see someone who used to bash the Panthers now with a black, blue and silver Panther "Keep Pounding" T shirt, but that was how they dealt with losing. Many of them are losers in other walks of life so don't expect them to align themselves with anything but winners if given the choice. I mean, If I worked at McDonalds in Jacksonville and my wife was a 400 lb unemployed social worker, I don't think I would tie my heartstrings to the Jaguars right now.
Do not underestimate the symbolic value of the mug--even if you consider 2008, the curse of the lost mug turned Jake Delhomme into Tommy John and resurrected his old WFL teammate Kurt Warner from the grave (he was clinically dead) to humiliate us at home. The it sent the microbacteria that infested Hurney's brain that caused him trade first rounders for the likes of Jeff Otah and Everette Brown. Defensive tackles and Wide Receivers were considered non-essential personnel, especially when a young gunslinger from Notre Dame fell to us in the draft by the grace of God. A year later the curse of the mug inspired Jerry Richardson to combine his 2 true loves, graphics and food, and he called a press conference to display his bestest pie chart because the refrigerator at home did not do it justice. That led to a paranoid purging of talent where Richardson and Chicken Little prepared for the football apocalypse that never occured by crawling into his luxurious bomb shelter funded by the exposed and angry PSL owners. Three years of famine were to follow, until a man named Gettlemen arrived preaching of hog mollies, touchdown scorers, and pass rushers. Crazy talk, Marty said as he watched from his sofa eating a sandwich, preparing for a hibernation from which he would never again emerge. With $16 million in debt, Gettlemen gets out his mirrors and smoke and fills positions with guys holding cardboard signs on the sidewalks of free agency. Cam matures, Rivera grows a pair, and Zod finds his mug. The stars are aligned people. We are returning to the stage we left 10 years ago, but this time it will be in New York and not Houston. The curse has been broken.

It's hard to tell the difference between Luck and the average hobo:
Hello, I am Jebediah, your Amish goat-milking farm hand from Western Pennsylvania. You know that Western Pennsylvania produces more top quality QBs than there are fleas on a plowing Ox's back, so if your herd of goats needs milking....
Just kidding. I do not need to put Andrew Luck down to pay respects to Cam.
I am still waiting for the people who defended Cam last season to attack those of us who criticized him then. He is a different player now--the player we all knew he could be-- and a smart person would see the difference and think, "Now I get what they were saying." His teammates, coaches, family, and Cam himself all admit to undergoing some rather dramatic changes this year. I am elated about it and I think we finally have that franchise qb this franchise has never had. This photo tells me that he gets it. If you think he is fun this year, wait until the OL and WR upgrades in 2014.
