#2915699 Nothing but talent

Posted by panthers55 on 29 August 2014 - 11:27 PM

I am holding out hope that now that the starters are set and they will be game planning that the offensive line and the offense in General will be more productive. I get one more week to be optimistic void of any game day experience to prove me wrong. Even then I am going to find something positive . after all who looks forward to the negative? Fan or cynic?

#2913884 I'm officially on the Fozzy bandwagon.

He needs to make the final 53.  If he ends up on the practice squad he will be stolen away in a heartbeat.  

#2913701 I think Webb should be our second string quarterback

Posted by panthers55 on 28 August 2014 - 08:28 PM

I know he is playing against the scrubs but honestly Webb looks comfortable out there and is making all the right reads.  I really think he has more upside than Anderson right now.  With Anderson being hurt I think Webb should be getting more reps with the 1s and 2s next week.

#2912136 Who is the smartest player in the NFL?

Posted by panthers55 on 27 August 2014 - 09:15 PM

You don't have to be that smart to play football.  With the exception of Manning, there is an inverse relationship between intelligence and success in the league.


With that said Fitzpatrick scored a 48 out of 50 on the Wonderlic and finished in under 9 minutes which is crazy fast.


Here is a list which yes is bleacher report but there it is.......................

Posted by panthers55 on 26 August 2014 - 10:28 PM

It is August and the season hasn't even started.  So of course we are going to make the playoffs and win the division.  I don't understand fans who would believe that we are not going to have a great season.  There is plenty of time for negativity if we struggle down the road.  Until then I choose to be positive and drink the koolaid.

#2899838 Byron Bell starting is a "fait accompli"

Posted by panthers55 on 20 August 2014 - 11:51 AM

Funny how everyone put it off that being left handed was in no way shape or form going to help him improve, obviously they dont know football, olineman use there hands more than anyone on the field...makes plenty of sense

Add that most people don't know how hard it is for left handed people to do everything backwards.  Left handed people have more accidents than right handed folks just because the world is built for right handed people.  Being left handed myself, I have experienced how hard it is for us to do everything backwards from what is "normal".  I was one of those posters who speculated that being left-handed might be much easier for him compared to staying on the right side. 

#2899806 Byron Bell starting is a "fait accompli"

Posted by panthers55 on 20 August 2014 - 11:27 AM

I will. Here is my post from the J Stew thread.

Matt Ryan wears braided belts.

We have all been wrong about players and coaches.  But if you are a Panther fan (and I know you are) I would think you would want everyone on the team to be fantastic and prove our doubts and concerns to be wrong.  I thought Benjamin would be too raw to contribute right away but I sure hope he proves me wrong on that this year.

#2899724 Byron Bell starting is a "fait accompli"

Posted by panthers55 on 20 August 2014 - 10:33 AM

I know it is very early given we haven't even played any regular season games, but if Bell does better on the left side versus the right I want all the multiple posters who made tons of post laughing about how being left handed and playing left tackle in college wouldn't change anything  to eat platefuls of crow.  

#2899418 Right now, we're the 2002-2004 Falcons

Posted by panthers55 on 20 August 2014 - 06:04 AM

If you had to compare us to a team in the last decade or so then the Falcons are an ok comparison,  But if you go back further I think that Cam is really a supersized beast version of Randall Cuningham and we were similar to the Eagles in the late 80s and early 90s.    Cunningham was a passer first with great escapability who could run but was not primarily a runner like Vick.  Although he was 6'4" he was around 215 lbs which made him too thin for the pounding he took and ultimately led to injuries which derailed his career.  Cam is the supersized version of Cunningham who is more durable and a better runner.  Cam like Cunningham was streaky though and often could zing in a pass while on the next play be wildly inaccurate.


The receivers were not an overwhelming bunch but could be effective and the running game was by committee as well with Cunningham being a critical part often in the top 2 or 3 in yards.  The offense scored points but they were not the most important part of the team.  It was the defense that was so fearsome with a front 4 that included bookends Reggie While, and Clyde Simmons with Jerome Brown in the middle.  Their linebackers of Seth Joyner and  All Harris were very good with a number of guys occupying the third spot.  Their secondary with Eric Allen, Wes Hopkins and Andre Waters were clearly better than ours but we are improving.


What I found interesting was the Eagles in 1989 had an 11-5 regular season record making the postseason for the second time in a row after a drought and were a wildcard.  Similar to what we want to do at the minimum. 

#2891796 Roll call for Chiefs game Sunday night - who's going?

Posted by panthers55 on 15 August 2014 - 03:27 PM

It is going to be a great game and my seats will be well represented.  I gave them away to a great family and a terrific young man who has never been to a professional football game. I want him to see the Panthers live for the first time and see what all the excitement is about. Another Panther fan in the making.

#2890965 Panthers' new top 3 WRs "have really stepped up/have really meshed ve...

Posted by panthers55 on 14 August 2014 - 11:01 PM

I was disappointed seeing it was only Rivera saying this, by the thread title with the quotation marks, I thought it was espn saying this. Ofcourse Rivera is going to say this.

Well if ESPN said it was true, then I would be disappointed since everything they saw rarely is true.

#2890074 School me on Charles Godfrey and defense

Posted by panthers55 on 14 August 2014 - 10:10 AM

Godfrey wasn't as bad as some folks think.  He often had to make up for terrible corner play and while it looked like his assignment because he was left out there chasing or tackling them, it was really someone else's blown assignment (read corner or linebacker). Plus he laid some heavy hits as a safety over the years. He is still recovering from the achilles injury and will need at least this year to fully recover.  


So he is likely worth keeping especially since it would cost 5,100,000 in dead cap money to cut him and only 3 million to keep him.  Next year his cap goes up to 7,100,000 and his dead cap hit next would lower to 3 million and in 2016 it is 6 million cap hit and only 1 million to cut him so really next year or the following year would be the best time to cut him.

#2890039 Playing Smith in Baltimore

Posted by panthers55 on 14 August 2014 - 09:55 AM

Smith won't be that big a factor as he is a slot receiver at this point and may get a few catches but he won't go off for 200 yards.

#2890021 If Hardy's conviction isn't overturned, he might not play for awhile

Posted by panthers55 on 14 August 2014 - 09:46 AM

lol thousands of years of laws and people still break them, if somebody wants to beat a woman or smoke weed....or commit murder they will and a suspension or time in jail or the death penalty is not a deterrent,

It is a deterrent to most folks just not folks who are impaired at the time or just believe they are above the law or won't get caught.

#2889803 Just realized the Seahawks are on the schedule again

Posted by panthers55 on 14 August 2014 - 06:29 AM

So why do people come on here to admit they aren't a very knowledgeable fan  Anyone who frequents this site ought to know who is on our schedule and how the schedule gets determined.  And if you don'r, do you really need to come on here and admit your lack of knowledge??


Much has been made for months about the fact we get Seattle again at our house.  This time Wilson won't be pulling so many miracles out of his butt and hopefully Williams doesn't fumble away the potential winning drive.
