#2869510 Discussion on Local Sports Radio

Our defense is top notch.  That side of the ball alone should keep us in every game we play.  Cam's protection is the only thing I'm worried about going in - definitely not our WR's or secondary. 


This is a good point.  you have to be in position to win to get lucky.

Funny, but nobody really knows.  A few injuries, a few lucky bounces, and we could be anywhere from 5-11 to 11-5


Last year, we got lucky when we beat Atlanta (bad snap).  We got lucky on the call in the endzone vs. New England.  We got lucky vs. Miami, SF there (injuries), etc. Heck, we could have easily been 8-8.

#2869176 7-29 Practice Thread

For Ealy critics--


CJ came into his own during his third year.

Hardy came into his own during his third year.

Ealy has not come into his own after his third practice.


Yes, Everette Brown was a bust.  He was a bad pick from the outset.  Don't compare the picks of a desperate ex-newspaper reporter to those of Dave Gettlemen.

Cut the Defensive back.

#2866423 The truth is Steve Smith is probably better right now, than anyone on our roster

Posted by MHS831 on 27 July 2014 - 11:48 AM

Let's just forget about the cap and what keeping him would have cost us over the next three years.  Let's just pretend the cap is a Kajillion dollars.

#2866041 Gaffney our for year

Posted by MHS831 on 26 July 2014 - 09:13 PM

When did this happen?

Sent from my SCH-I535 using CarolinaHuddle mobile app


He was simple running the ball to the offensive left and turned it up the sideline.  It was about 6:40--early in Fan Fest. He pulled up a bit and limped back.  I happened to be watching him.  He disappeared with a trainer and never came back.

#2865821 Offensive Line Talk

Posted by MHS831 on 26 July 2014 - 05:08 PM

I am no expert either, but I want to extend what Cape Fear said. I coached OL for a state championship high school team (3x) so, I know a little about the basics.   I am most interested in our situation on the OL.  I think the WRs are better by far, and I think the secondary is going to be better than last year--


I watched Chandler on the left side during the blitz/stunt drill.  He had PERFECT balance.  He worked inside out, his head turned quickly, indicating that he is reading his primary block quickly and checking down to the inside (his secondary block) nicely.  Hardy could not make him jump.  He knew the job, in my opinion.


Bell was surprisingly good, but not as good.  I thought Bell was a bit slow to react, but his balance was not as bad as I remembered.  His angle was not as sharp as it was on the right side last year, where he often made contact 5 yards deep behind B gap.  Chandler will be our LT--make no bones about it.  I think he will make his mistakes, but Chandler is not going to be a liability there.


Last year, when Chandler was inserted as the starter at RG, we were in SF playing the niners.  Fangio tried to attack him, but Chandler held his own.  That was a sign of things to come.  I like Chandler better than any OT in the draft except maybe Matthews.  We get Benjamin, Ealy, and find Chandler--it is like we are adding three first-round talents to the team.  I am pumped.


By the way, I saw little out of G Williams last night. I want him to be the RT. 

#2865466 Why did you become a Panther fan?

Posted by MHS831 on 26 July 2014 - 10:48 AM

I grew up a Colt fan.  Was very loyal.  Then I took my son (3) to a Panther OTA at Winthrop.  Kevin Greene came up behind him to grab him, but my son avoided the blind side pressure and ran from him.  Greene Laughed, then posed for a picture.  Then Wesley Walls, a great guy, picked him up and chatted with him.  After that, Eric Davis took a knee for a picture with him and had trouble getting up (bruised thigh) so I had to help him up.  After a day like that, where these players were so friendly to my son, how could you not start pulling for the Panthers?



#2864262 On the Jonathan Stewart cap hit talk....

Posted by MHS831 on 25 July 2014 - 10:29 AM

He plays a devalued position and we are paying him like a #1 WR.  I can't tell you how much I hate Marty Hurney,


I get the feeling that Stewart knows that he is getting paid if he plays or not, so I do not expect to see the Thomas Davis work ethic and attitude in him.  He is rich for having a good season a few years ago.  I sometimes think he is trying to get cut so he can double dip.. 



#2863302 Kug to have back surgery Aug 8th, done for year

Posted by MHS831 on 24 July 2014 - 01:01 PM

welp that was a great pick


Most 4th rounders bust. 

Here is how I look at it:


+ Silatolu:  Awesome pick, great value, need

+ Short: Solid pick, good value, need

- Kugbila:  Raw potential.  We cannot foresee injuries, so this is not a ***** in Gettlemen's armor

+ Klein: Awesome pick, great value (you should not draft in the fifth round for need-will probably start this year or next)

- Barner:  Decent pick, good value.  RR wanted a scat back, and this is the guy.  Jury still out.


If Barner and Kug don't develop, that is a 60% rating on the draft (players who become key contributors by year 2).  Keep in mind that the NFL average for first rounders alone is about 60%.  If Barner comes around, this goes up to 80%.


Benjamin: Good pick, fair value, huge need

Ealy: Solid pick, great value, becoming a need

Turner: Solid pick, solid value, need

Boston: Questionable pick, questionable value, need (Boston could become special--knows the defensive backfield.)

Bene: Solid pick, solid value, need

Gaffney: solid pick (see Williams-31, Stewart -injured again) Gaffney/Tolbert/Barner could be the combo by the end of the year


I am guessing that ALL of the picks above could be key contributors by next season.  Gettlemen is pretty good.

#2863218 Cam Fully Cleared; Stewart Out 1-2 Weeks

Posted by MHS831 on 24 July 2014 - 12:19 PM

Once heard Marc James on WFNZ say that most players on the team consider Stewart soft.  This does not help.


We are not as deep at RB as people think.  Gaffney was a good pick

#2849670 Target sees the Redskins end game

Posted by MHS831 on 13 July 2014 - 09:09 PM

A visual description of a person is offensive?  I'd argue it's less offensive than the term "Indian" (Cleveland Indians).  American Natives were incorrectly given this name when settlers came to the Americas thinking they landed in India.


Heck the term African American is pretty damn misleading and is used to describe any black person in America.

White people are born in Africa, why is it that if they legally migrate to America they aren't African American?

What do you call a black person who lives in the UK?

This term also assumes all black people who live in the United States have lineage back to the continent of Africa, despite the fact that black people come from many different places like Haiti, Jamaica, the Caribbean, Trinidad, etc.


Offense is derived from context.  Constantly bickering about the proper nomenclature is a power grab utilized to manipulate and distract people from participating in discussion on actual problems in the US (and elsewhere).


In fact forcing a name change sounds an awful lot like the assimilation Native Americans were forced through.  When we had Natives attend English speaking schools, gave them English names, forced our religion(s) upon them and tore them from their previous way of life. 

The people had a name--Cherokees or Navaho- but to classify them as a skin color is bigoted--It was probably not meant to be a negative comment, but it was a stupid one (even 100 years ago or whatever).  I agree that the Cleveland Indians is also disturbing, but not because they were misnamed, because that logo is demeaning.


I do not see how misnaming a race is more offensive than classifying it by skin color.


I didn't coin the term "African American" but I tend to agree that it is misleading. However, I don't know of any black people not of African origin to be offended if called it.  I do, however, think they would be offended if we called them blackskins--as they should.

This is without challenge the stupidest most naive sentiment I have ever seen on this website.

Time to grow up and join reality.


Refer to the tribe, the name, but to refer to any group of people by skin color is racist.  Now, maybe the people at your rally will agree with you, but I doubt you are in a position to call anyone stupid.  You are just a narrow-minded moron who thinks football tradition, albeit bigoted, is more important than the dignity of a race of people. 


Call a native American "Red" or "hey redskin" and tell me about reality.  Until then, better to keep your mouth shut about what should and should not offend people in races you are not part of.  You personify bigotry with your response, but most never see it, because they are too busy telling people what reality is-as if they actually know.

Any reference to skin color is offensive.   If you have a thick skin about what other races should and should not tolerate, good for you.  That makes you a bigot.


"But a comedian once said...."  good argument.

#2847498 Slow news day, PFT shitting on receivers

Posted by MHS831 on 12 July 2014 - 09:10 AM

Gonna piss some people off with this comment--

As much as I or any outsider can tell, Smitty was a cancer.  Yes, he made some big plays and made sure everyone in the stadium knew it, but punching and insulting teammates in the media was all I needed to start questioning his impact on the team in the locker room.  No WR ever developed here after he was drafted.  Not one. The whole sorted truth will come out eventually, but I personally am anxious to see what we can do without him.


If you think Smitty was worth the money it would have taken to keep him here--a 35-year old, small speed WR with a banged up knee, then you are having trouble letting 2003 and X-Clown go. AND you do not know what $7 million buys in the NFL.   LAST year, he got a lot of balls thrown to him and posted 745 yards and 4 TDs. He is slowing down-so you should expect less in 2014.   Cotchery did not have the targets in Pittsburgh, but he nearly equaled the production in yards and more than doubled the scoring.  He is 4 years younger and a better teammate. 


Not even going to get into the inconsistencies of Lafell and Ginn.   Benjamin, Cotchery, Avant---upgrade.
