yes. the panthers are going to go 0-16. ron rivera will turn into a cyborg and blow up the stadium with lasers from his dick. charlotte will fall into a bottomless black hole and north carolina will literally explode into a greasy fireball of bojangles and ruined dreams. we are all going to die. prepare yourself.
I think Martin does a much better job against Roddy White than Naka, if only for the first play of their game winning drive. That was a punt pass that should at the very least been knocked down. Martin makes that play easily.
So, you're satisfied with Armanti, Pilares and Munnerlyn at returns? I think Holliday and Hester showed us the importance of having a legitimate threat at returner can do for you. Holliday ran one back, but Hester gave Chicago great field position all day while barely touching the ball.
And I don't care how you spin it, Gettis is a major upgrade over Murphy. I think he forces defenses to at least account for him because of his speed. That will allow more one on one coverages for Smitty. And the more of that you see, the better chance this team has of winning.
But maybe you're right. maybe we don't win any more games. But at the very least, we develop talent that can contribute in the near future in positions of need.
Question: when Hester and Holliday are on the field making returns are they the only guys on the field? Let me guess, you hadn't thought about the fact that special teams play is a team thing-- multiple guys on the field making blocks and executing a plan.
Another question: When was the last time you saw Gettis play? As poor as the team has played do you think the coaches are keeping Gettis out to be stubborn or because they don't get it like you do? My guess is that he'll be in when he is ready and that means physically, as well as up to speed with the offense--- what there is of it.
