I'm pretty sure St Louis was 14-0 at home before we beat them in double OT in 2003/4.


#2468278 Dumb Niners Fan on reddit puts all his money on niners parlay bet with bengals

Posted by pnthrs on 05 November 2013 - 09:45 AM

224k in winnings on a 65k bet? So he will be taxed on 159k of income and assuming he makes 81k a year (which is likely a given since he saved up 65k to gamble with) he will pay appx 43% tax on it so his 159k winnings turns into 90.63k.  Not exactly enough to buy a place in "The bay area" and PSLs for the new SF stadium.  

 

Just dumb.

#2046083 Something I didn't know about the Chargers this season...

Posted by pnthrs on 14 December 2012 - 01:55 PM

Rosario had a great game if I remember correctly. Caught the winning td. He was a pretty decent receiving tight end at one time.



SD home opener, 2 seconds left, Jake must score a TD to win, hits Rosario in the back of the end zone with a fingertip catch gutting every SD fan alive.

The Chargers fans reaction if anyone remembers this 4 years ago:

Whoever gave me neg rep is a hater and a hypocrite. Probably on some moral high horse given down to you by your forefathers who exploited people and land to make money (and purely for their own personal pleasures, entertainment and other gratification). But now, of course, you want to sweep that under the rug. I don't give a flyin' fug. The truth shall make you free. As far as I am concerned, you're a hypocrite of the highest order---a hypocrisy that has been ingrained within your heritage.


I gave you neg rep because I wanted to hear about the statue and his speach and not your political stance dummy.

Posted by pnthrs on 07 February 2012 - 12:25 PM

It would be funny if Welker's wife came out and said, "What's with that safety and ugly-ass pick Tom threw. I think his accuracy and arm strength are really going to sh*t!"
Edit: not sure if Wes is married.

#1535665 Glad the lockout is over (assuming we got what we needed)

Posted by pnthrs on 26 November 2011 - 03:51 PM

It's not really a huge help and that's why most of the owners were against the deal, it will still pass with a 16-13 vote. Spending is curbed and the NBA has revenue sharing, but it won't stop the Lakers, Celtics and a few other teams from spending more then anyone else. No hard cap = failure for the NBA in this lockout.


I semi agree although I do fully believe that there would never have been a new CBA with a hard cap. That is the players and the owners fault.

Regardless, the Bobcats hired a GM (Cho) who (before the lockout) was/is building our team through the draft by tanking last season (and probably this one.) He specifically stated that having a couple expensive guys on a mediocre team will always net you a 7-8 playoff spot and doom your team to permanent mediocrity since you then never get a good draft pick.

Do I love this system? No. Is it our only realistic chance at a good team? Yeah unfortunately without a CP3 or insanely lucky draft pick.

The good news is there is more money for Jordan to use (from TV contract splitting etc..) and there is more of a luxury penalty for other teams. Even if it only makes a 1% difference I will never be sad my team has a 1% better of a chance to be competitive.

Cho + a young team (Kemba!) + a soon to be early draft picks + a sharper lux tax system = a better overall picture for the Bobcats than a year or 2 ago.

Not everything I wanted but not a total screw over for small market teams. That is how successful negotiating happens. I can live with it. If it doesn't work for small market teams 2-3 years from now look for the CBA to be a 6yr opt out rather than a 10.

do the Panthers not have an on site MRI machine?


#1310559 to PSL owners....

Posted by pnthrs on 05 August 2011 - 11:06 AM

Those are the ugliest tickets I have ever seen. To be fair though there was complete uncertainty until a week ago so there wasn't exactly time to put players on the cover since we didnt know who would be our players. He should have put some retro pics on there or something to get PSL owners pumped. Lame.


#1254829 Local band has a Jake hate song...

Posted by pnthrs on 02 July 2011 - 07:41 PM

Jake gave us great sucess. At this point do people really hate a QB that can be a super bowl winner caliber QB? I perfectly remember his mediocrity and his devistating game(s). What's the other side of the coin? Now? Before? I'll take Jake till the next person takes us further.

He got the ball to smitty. f a c t.


#1249572 Cam Newton up for 4 ESPYs

Posted by pnthrs on 28 June 2011 - 03:46 PM

The arguement of who has been a fan longer is invalid with someone in their 20's since the Panthers only began in 1995...so really anyone born from 1990 and before has been a fan since the beginning. And that date can probably be later than that if they remember anything before the age of 5.


Don't forget some of us can't remember anything from college as well!


#1242988 This is what happens when there is no football Season...

Posted by pnthrs on 23 June 2011 - 01:49 PM

This has already been posted, in the NFL section. And this has nothing to do with the Panthers.


ruh roh. panther forum football cops! 1/2 the crap on here doesnt have anything to do with the panthers.


#1217132 Panthers hire police to keep media out of workout

Posted by pnthrs on 31 May 2011 - 01:16 PM

circus is media created, though. players are just trying to get together to get their minds focused on what the panthers are going to be doing this year. they have playbooks and no doubt will be working on what they have. many (probably most) learn better in group settings and then they'll have a chance to see what it looks like on the field and try to implement it.

sure, it would be better with coaches...but these guys are professionals. they know what they are doing. they aren't just a bunch of guys off the street pretending they are something they are not. they have enough vets who know how these things go. very likely that they have brought in a couple coaches to help facilitate and run things in the training room and on the field.



Good point about the media being the cause for the circus. (and maybe some fervent fans.)

@ the players being professionals:

Yes and No. Some players we are lucky to have because they are so self motivated and can bring those around them up.

The examples are the 2 player run "camps" before this one. Jon Beason in Miami with about 10ish players at a facility for athletes. The other being Jordan Gross who brought his personal trainer from Iowa in to train with about a dozen guys in Davidson? (Slightly north of Charlotte somewhere.)

(I exclude Newton since that was 1 on 1.)

Those guys I/we can count on to be on their game and following the techniques and methods a NFL team would be providing for them (for the most part.) Those guys are beasts and are self motivated.

We unfortunately dont have 52 leaders and even if we did There are a million other moving parts for a real NFL practice that simply can not exist at their "team camp" @ Char Christian. That is just a fact.

For one thing there are not specific position coaches. That isnt going to help anyone who isnt a multi year vet get better at what it takes to be elite. (Gettis, Lafell, Armani just to name guys who need to have taken it up a notch who need a route running Ricky Prohel yelling at them.)

They are not running routines or practices that would and should be done if they were actually practicing for real. 1 trainer can simply not focus on a TE like he could an O linemen. That lack of specificity makes some people better off just physically training outside this camp with a vet. Is something not specific better than something specific? I dont think so but some will disagree.

The biggest area of concern I have is the physical training/rehabbing. The icing, the heating pads, the wrapping sore/pulled areas, the ice baths, the necessary injections, the monitoring of anything from athelets foot to a sore ligament that may tear if not rehabbed for a couple weeks . The NFL teams put guidelines and penalties in place for the players because they KNOW that many players would other-wise shrug off many effective methods if left to their own devices. I know for a fact that these guys are not going out of pockets for the intense therapies that it takes to maintain such physiques.

A perfect example is that Thomas Davis tweeked something small in his knee a week or 2 ago playing sand volley ball. He does not have access (through the NFL or personally) to someone who will be treating that with all the knowhow and elite medical prowess that a NFL trainer would. He could but isnt.


I dont mean to be doom and gloom by a long shot. I am happy we have players meeting in any sense of an organized fashion. I just want everyone to remember that the level of training and treatment that they will receive is so shoddy that we can not take anything they do as realistically preparing for a NFL season.

After hours of class room studies (not to mention rookie symposium needs) these guys should be in 4hour 2 a days with contracted weight clauses, expectations of physique, knowledge of playbook, increased stamina, speed, route running etc... The exact opposite has been the case for 80-90% of our team. Im not saying they are schlubs and fattys but the effort it takes an NFL player to go from insanely fit, to NFL field ready has been a March-Sept training routine for a reason.

The last thing I will say that I am sure some will agree with me and some will not:

There are a LOT of NFL players that would not still be NFL players if not for the strict and monitored regiment that the NFL imposes on the athletes. They are not responsible or motivated enough to take themselves from amazing to elite.

If we think their personal behavior is bad during a CBA and terrible in the lack of one, would it not be reasonable to assume their level of training is also as poor if not poorer for a good chunk of players?
