#3166040 2014 Panthers Rookie Grades

Posted by Tom on 31 December 2014 - 02:28 PM

KB =

 

7th all time in rookie WR receptions

17th all time in rookie WR yards 

12th all time in rookie WR TDs

 

Those who would grade KB at anything less than an "A" lack perspective. 




#2598902 Official Huddle Playoff Tickets Contest #2 - Pure Poetry

Posted by Tom on 09 January 2014 - 09:26 PM

A tribute, of sorts:

 

I celebrate my team, and sing Carolina,

And what I cheer, you shall cheer,

For every great play belonging to me as good belongs to you.

 

I stand and unleash my soul,

I yell and scream as the defense stands firm upon the grass.

 

My team, every player has shed his blood, form'd under the Wofford sun,

Born here of Gettleman and Hurney the same,

I, now 19 years a fan, never waiver

I sound my barbaric yawp in BOA.

 

 

 

 

 




#2525885 NO/CAR playoff scenarios

Posted by Tom on 03 December 2013 - 12:25 PM

Sweep the Saints = division winner.

 

Splitting w/ the Saints would require the Saints to lose to either to the Rams or the Bucs for Carolina to win the Division. Assuming a split, Carolina could lose to the Jets (but not the Falcons) and still win the division if the Saints' loss is against the Bucs. If Saints loss is against Rams, then Carolina has to beat Jets/ Falcons.

 

Carolina only needs two wins to guarantee a WC spot so even if we get swept by the Saints beating Jets/Falcons gets us in.

 

 




#2322225 Your "low point" as a Panthers fan

Then i wonder how bad Raiders fans feel. How many times has that team picked in the top 5 of the draft over the past decade?

  

Just two years? The Lions, Browns, Rams, Chiefs, and Raiders have had it worse recently.



Y'all are right. We aren't in the bottom tier of franchishes, probably in the second worst tier (of four).


#2322122 Your "low point" as a Panthers fan

2001 hands down. Losing 15 straight in one season (an NFL record at the time, thanks Det!) was brutal.


#2322111 Anybody a little concerned with Beason?

Posted by Tom on 13 August 2013 - 11:29 AM

I don't know about Beason but the Panthers were in base 4-3 on less than 1/2 of all defensive snaps last year. Obviously they want him on the field for those plays but the reality is that the Panthers play with only 2 LBs on the field most of the time (source: Football Outsiders). Losing him is losing a situational player not an every down guy.

The book Cam mentions is a self-help about interpersonal skills, effective leadership, and personal development. Regardless of the effectiveness of the book, I'm impressed that Cam is working hard at improving himself as a person and not just as a football player.




#2276615 Panthers to ink Quintin Mikell?

McDermott is certainly familiar with him. Mikell made the Pro Bowl under him in 2009. Hope this gets done.
