#3101851 I don't need this playoff berth

Posted by Sam Mills Fan on 23 November 2014 - 04:31 PM

If we make the playoffs, it could just take a win against Detroit at home and a win against Arizona on the road to get to the NFC Championship Game. Lots of ifs, but keep that in mind. Getting Tolbert and Alexander back too.

#3098508 5 wins and we're in!

Posted by Sam Mills Fan on 20 November 2014 - 12:00 PM

Why the hell are people against this? Can you imagine us getting in with 5 wins, while ESPN darlings like the Eagles and Seahawks are left out with 10-6 or 11-5 records? The outrage by people like Colin Cowherd will just be LOL worthy. I'm all aboard the 5-10-1, 6-9-1 Division Champ Express.

#3097751 Still in for Rivera~

Posted by Sam Mills Fan on 19 November 2014 - 07:28 PM

Ask yourself this question: What other coach contributes more to losses on a regular basis than Ron Rivera? Can't think of more than 1 or 2? Can't think of any? Isn't that a pretty fugging big sign he can't coach?

#3097443 Which would you rather see happen?

Posted by Sam Mills Fan on 19 November 2014 - 03:31 PM

Option C: We win the division on a fluke at 6-9-1 and Rivera gets canned anyway. 


If you think making the playoffs at 6-9-1 is reason enough to keep Rivera around, you are smoking the ganja.

#3094802 Hardy, Kalil, DeAngelo, Stewart, Bell, Charles Johnson: Who will be back next...

Posted by Sam Mills Fan on 18 November 2014 - 10:13 AM

That Jonathan Stewart contract....every time I see the numbers, I just can't believe it's real. That has to be a joke. Jonathan Stewart is still a good running back, but that might be the worst contract since Sean Gilbert or extending Jake Delhomme after the Arizona playoff game.

#3093798 With everything that's gone on this season, Panthers still control their...

Posted by Sam Mills Fan on 17 November 2014 - 05:26 PM

"Why would anyone want the Panthers to make the playoffs?"


Let's say for the sake of argument that the Panthers DO win their last 5 games to win the division. You're telling me that going into the playoffs on a 5 game winning streak out of nowhere wouldn't have you fired up?


Note: This won't happen.

#3093620 Does PFF even watch football?

Posted by Sam Mills Fan on 17 November 2014 - 03:58 PM

Definitely skewed because he IS the entirety of our receiving corps. More balls thrown his way than any other rookie I'm sure. That and I don't think style points factor into anything for PFF, do they?


That said, Kelvin Benjamin is so overrated by this fan base. I think he'll improve next year, but some of his route running has been abysmal, he's been super lazy at times, and has had some awful drops. Mike Evans should be ROTY and not Kelvin Benjamin. I would have him ranked around 6th or 7th in terms of rookie receivers this year, not LOL 34th, but not #1 or even #2 either.

I know they've lost a couple of games recently, but I'm still absolutely in the Gus Malzahn camp...if he would be willing to leave Auburn.

#3092571 Did Dom Capers have the same personality as Fox/Rivera?

Posted by Sam Mills Fan on 16 November 2014 - 11:52 PM

Capers was extremely aggressive on defense. We were the kings of the zone blitz for at least a couple of years, sending 3 of our 4 linebackers to Honolulu as starters in 1996. He had inept offenses too though with weak offensive lines and average playmakers like Kerry Collins, Biakabutuka, Anthony Johnson, Mark Carrier, Willie Green. Did have Wesley Walls and young Muhsin Muhammad though.


You would think why doesn't Richardson try offense for a change then? He did and his name was George Seifert. We ran the WCO for a few seasons, nearly to perfection in 1999 and 2000. Problem in those seasons was that we had zero defense and zero running game. But Beuerlein throwing the ball around to Prime Moose and Patrick Jeffers and others (Rocket Ismail maybe?) was a thing of beauty. Seifert's third year was 2001 when we went 1-15 and he basically hasn't been seen or heard fro since. There are rumors he died a few years ago, nobody really knows for sure.

#3092319 What was the worst decision for Rivera.

Posted by Sam Mills Fan on 16 November 2014 - 09:36 PM

Both were dumb, but playing for the tie vs. Cincy was beyond the pale. Not one person thought Dalton wouldn't put them in position to win and not one person expected Cincy's kicker to miss that easy field goal. 

#3092134 Looking at the remaining schedules, it looks like we'll be alive at 5-9-1...

Posted by Sam Mills Fan on 16 November 2014 - 08:10 PM

This is getting funnier to do by the week. There is a VERY reasonable chance that we'll need a win in Atlanta in Week 17 to win the division at 6-9-1. By the numbers:


Carolina (3-7-1) remaining schedule:


@ Minnesota

@ New Orleans





I'm going to go optimistic for fun and say we beat the Vikings (who did lose to a terrible Bears team today), lose to New Orleans, beat Tampa Bay, and lose to Cleveland. That puts us at 5-9-1 going into Week 17 which for any other team in literally all of league history would make the last week meaningless. But check out what the Falcons and Saints have left:


Atlanta (4-6) remaining schedule:



@Green Bay


@New Orleans



How many wins do you see for the Falcons there before Week 17? I see 0. Not one. Yes, Atlanta did just beat us today, but they're also a terrible team. It's entirely possible they lose their next 5 games in a row; they've already had one 5 game losing streak this season. That puts them at 4-11. What about New Orleans?


New Orleans (4-6) remaining schedule:






@Tampa Bay


We know New Orleans can't win on the road, so there are two losses before Week 17. I already have them penciled in very lightly as beating both us and the Falcons in New Orleans, so there are two wins before Week 17. That just leaves next week's home game vs. Baltimore. Let's have fun and say the Saints somehow drop 3 straight in New Orleans and are sitting at 6-9 going into Week 17.


If that all happens, we'll be a half game back needing a win over Atlanta and a Saints loss ON THE ROAD in Tampa Bay. What would happen in that scenario? Well.........Ron Rivera will presumably still be our coach so we'll lose to the Falcons again and New Orleans will win the division at either 6-10 or 7-9. Regardless, we'll get to keep playing this KEEP HOPE ALIVE game up until the very last week of the season more than likely.


(For even more fun, imagine Atlanta beating New Orleans in New Orleans so we would be in sole possession of first after Week 16....at 5-9-1.)


I'm starting to love the idea of winning the division at 6-9-1 if only because the tears of Cowboys or Seahawks fans that don't make it in with a much better record will be delicious.


**********Note: I didn't factor Tampa Bay into it because, well, come on.

#3091955 Cam outplayed Peyton Manning today

Posted by Sam Mills Fan on 16 November 2014 - 07:19 PM

Joke thread? Cam had been playing the worst game of his CAREER until the 4th quarter.

#3091370 Of course that IDIOT Frank Garcia...

Posted by Sam Mills Fan on 16 November 2014 - 04:59 PM

Frank Garcia

Darin Gantt

Brett Jensen


If you unfollow these three on Twitter and turn the channel or radio dial when you see or hear them, you will save brain cells. These are paid, professional trolls that you should ignore if you're a Panthers fan or Charlotte sports fan in general.

#3091196 What do you think of Rivera's habit of blaming individual players by name...

Posted by Sam Mills Fan on 16 November 2014 - 04:38 PM

Ron Rivera is the worst coach in the league: this is something we all agree on. The only person that doesn't agree on that is Ron Rivera. When it's press conference time he'll say things like "We expect Gano to make that" or "Cam had some tough throws in the first half" or "Secondary Player X was benched because he was playing poorly", but I don't think I've ever heard him admit to a coaching mistake he's personally made.


I think that's what irritates me about this guy more than anything else. Thoughts?
