ESPN Reports: Cam was going to the stadium on his day off .... and gets into a car wreck.


ESPN Reports: Cam needs more time to study because he's too slow to pick up offense.


ESPN Reports: If Cam Newton was smart enough to pick up an NFL offense then he would have never gotten into a carwreck.

#3140174 Greg Olsen is a baller

Posted by goodsense83 on 17 December 2014 - 09:47 AM

I know Walls always gets talked about as best TE in franchise history but I never watched him play. For those who did, is Olsen better?


Wesley Walls was great... but he was also the only option in a run first offense.


Greg Olsen has consistently performed alongside a hall of famer (Steve Smith) and a dual threat quarterback in Cam. When you  have more options, your numbers can be effected. Not taking anything away from Walls, but just wanted to highlight how great Olsen really is.

Continuity is just as important as talent when you're talking about Offensive line. If these guys can maintain this and make the playoffs... I think we can draft the best tackle in the first round and go BPA for the rest.


Byron Bell must go though.

Ill get flack for it but its what happens when a player goes to a school and uses it for more than a jumping board for the nfl


lol.... true... but its also what happens when that same "smart QB" cant make it in the NFL.


Got nothing against Brady Quinn... but I have zero interest in the fact that he commentated this game...Which probably means he did a good job.

#3130407 Cam's First Facebook Post Since the Accident

Posted by goodsense83 on 11 December 2014 - 05:38 PM

That’s a long rant that has really nothing to do with what I said. Let me break it down even simpler:


Science is continually progressing. FACT.


If you pick something that science has not ‘answered’ yet, and you extend the timeline long enough, eventually science will be able to answer it. FACT. That has nothing to do with faith it is simply stating the FACT that something that is continually progressing, if given a long enough time frame, will progress to a certain point. (again, a FACT)


You mad brah?

That is the most unscientific thing you've said all day. At most, it is a theory, not a fact. Just because you type something in all caps doesn't remove the fallacy in it. You can't say something is a fact if it hasn't happened yet. Unless of course you believe in destiny... which most would agree is contradictory to any scientific process. 


Go back and re-read what I said again. Because your response leads me to believe that not only do you not know what I'm talking about.... but you don't know what you're talking about either.

The big difference there is science will continue to advance and fill in the "blind spots." Meanwhile religion will try to explain those blind spots the exact same way they did thousands of years ago. On a long enough time scale, science WILL explain all of them, and religion will have what? Absolutely nothing.


And don't get me started on the whole "without God people would have no moral compass," I don't need some invisible person floating in the clouds to know it is wrong to steal or hurt somebody. I am capable of holding myself to a higher standard, although perhaps some people aren't.


Also not entirely true... Science is now a multi-billion dollar industry. There are many different aspects of "so-called science." Science is over-politicized and its a foolish assumption to believe that religious people are opposed to science or at odds with science. For many religious people... science is used as a means to validate what they already believe what they claim to have already experienced. You don't have to NOT believe in God to accept scientific facts. To say that "Science WILL" do something is more a statement of faith than it is a statement of fact. And that's ok to believe that... Just recognize you believe it.


For many, science is used to further their already perceived worldview... believers and non-believers alike. Research can bring us a cure for cancer... but it can also create a disease for biological warfare. (Ask the FDA.) The point is... science can be used to bring about intended means... not just objective data. 


We can say the same thing about History... the data can be skewed based upon whose telling the story... or based upon the story they want you to know.


It also happens in football.... The general public has a perception of Cam Newton as a QB and as a human being. If you got all of your information from ESPN, then you'll have one view of him. But there are those of us who have another view... based upon having a variety of sources to come to a conclusion... (other networks, watching games, The Huddle, past experience of his success in different situations.)


Diversify your bonds.

Superstition is the belief in supernatural causality—that one event causes another without any natural process linking the two events—such as astrology, religion, omens, witchcraft, prophecies, etc., that contradicts natural science.
you are choosing to be offended by the dictionary definition of a superstition.



There are actually multiple definitions of superstition and some of them do not include religion.... such as this one from Dictionary.com


1. a belief or notion, not based on reason or knowledge, in or of the ominous significance of a particular thing, circumstance, occurrence, proceeding, or the like.

2. a system or collection of such beliefs

3. a custom or act based on such a belief

4. irrational fear of what is unknown or mysterious, especially in connection with religion.

5. any blindly accepted belief or notion


Definitions can be amended, changed and evolve throughout history and are applied through the context of the culture.


There is a common belief among atheists and other non-believers that because a religious belief is not accessible to the scientific method, that it makes that belief false. That cannot be further from the truth. There are many beliefs that are held by believers and non-believers alike... that cannot be proven by scientific measures because Science actually lacks the tools to measure them. It is like trying to measure the universe with a measuring tape. The measuring tape is good for what it is good for... But often the science community and the non believing community don't like to admit where their tools fail. Just because something cannot be explained by science doesn't mean that it doesn't exist. It just means that the weight of certain supernatural questions are too heavy for the science scale to register the data.


What is unfortunate is that there are a lot of non-believers/ atheists who take what is a blind-spot for science and apply it as a strength. (The same can be said of believers who oppose everything scientific.) This is why some of their ideas are self-elevated and they tend to imply that they have a particular intellectual superiority over those who believe.


Now just so you know this is relevant....


Some of the most superstitious people on the entire planet are sports fans. And some of the most panicky, irrational fans in any sports franchise happen to be fans of the Carolina Panthers. And where do those fans go to express their worrisome ways... whether or not they are based on truth or not.... you guessed it.... (Shout out to J-IGO)


Part of believing in God is believing in someone greater than you... for a greater purpose... holding you to a greater standard. Be glad that we a QB who happens to believe in something bigger and greater than himself. In a time where football players are being charged with rape, violence, drug abuse, and all sorts of immoral behavior... maybe they need a little (or a lot) of God right now. (yes Im aware that believing in God doesn't stop you from doing illegal, immoral acts, Im just pointing out that Cam's belief in God shapes particular aspects of his life.)

Here's the thing about the Luck vs Cam argument.


The reason it exists is because many Panthers fans wanted Andrew Luck over Cam... even after Cam was drafted.


Cam had the greatest rookie year of any QB in NFL history. For Panther fans, for some reason, they took it personally that Luck didn't come out of college... even though Cam has wanted to play here. Cam is the heel. Luck is the darling. But Panthers have a particular hate towards Andrew Luck that Colts fans.. don't have for Cam. Because they don't feel shafted by Cam Newton... they don't pay any attention to him. Only Panther fans are tracking every move that Andrew Luck because their feelings are still hurt.


Andrew Luck is a great QB... but so is Cam Newton. They both have weaknesses and they both have areas of strength.


But here is where the comparisons end. Andrew Luck has what Cam has failed to get after 3 years... support.


The Colts are built around Andrew Luck's abilities. Because they know how to support a quarterback (see Peyton Manning). This organization has not given Cam what he needs to succeed. And as much as I think that Luke is a wonderful captain of the defense... Cam has NOT been provided with the tools or the personnel that can maximize his strengths. Two offensive coordinators with two different philosophies... retiring o-line, new WR corps (who wasn't that good anyway)....


Having said that... we're still 3-2 on top of the NFC South. Cam has played hurt and the defense has been off-track. Cam's numbers will not look like Andrew Lucks numbers this year because he's missed a game, played hurt, offensive side of the ball has suffered injuries to RB's and receivers... with a spotty line at best.... ??




I don't care about Andrew Luck. I stopped caring about him the minute we drafted our quarterback. Worry about what who we have and putting our team in a consistent position to succeed.  


Doing to Andrew Luck what everybody else does to Cam wont change anything.

#3004736 The Numbers vs Media Nonsense

Posted by goodsense83 on 07 October 2014 - 05:53 PM

I watched the NFLN piece everyone is flipping out about.. and it was probably the worst piece of journalism I have seen in a long time. If you go back and listen to it... they're using things that don't have anything to do with him to criticize him. I've never seen them compliment someone as a means to undermine them.


"He's getting hit, they can't catch, his defense isn't good anymore." ---- Irrelevant.


He then goes to site press conferences clips from Cam's Rookie year as a means to character assassinate him. 


He brings up QB's who are supposed to be better, but are beneficiaries of better teams with systems that utilize their strengths.

Quote: "Andrew Luck, (of course), 11 game winning drives" - As if that is a leap of accomplishment.


When questioned about what he says, he then says, "I am being unfair, and I acknowledge as much."


We keep hearing this critique of #1 QB picks and the expectations for them to lead their team to a championship.... but I wanted to shed some light on this something the media doesn't like to use... facts.


Out of the 78 years of the NFL draft:


-26 QBs have been selected #1 overall (33% of total #1 draft picks)

-Of those QB's 9 of them have won an NFL Championship/Superbowl (34.61% of QBS selected #1) (Combined for 17 in all.)

-5 of those QBS have multiple Superbowls (T.Bradshaw -4, T. Aikman- 3, J. Elway -2, E. Manning- 2, J. Plunkett- 2)  making -up 76% of the Superbowls won the 9 QBs who won SBs.


39 #1 draft picks have made it to at least one probowl out of 78 first picks. (about 50%) (edited)

Of all positions, 19 picks in the draft since 1937, won the Heisman trophy. (24% of all players) 7 of those trophy winners were QBS. Of those 7, only Jim Plunkett has won a Superbowl (2)

5 #1 draft picks of all players in all positions have won rookie of the year (Earl Campbell 78, Billy Sims 80, George Rogers 81, Sam Bradford '10, Cam Newton '11) - Only George Rogers has a superbowl ring - with the Washington Redskins '88 (He was drafted by the saints in '81)


How many QBs' taken as the #1 draft pick, winning the Heisman trophy have won a superbowl? None... Because there have only been two.... Sam Bradford and Cam Newton.


My point is that the critique they make against Cam Newton should be critiques that they make against an organization that has only been to the Superbowl once in 20 years. The #1 draft picks who have seen success winning have been players that had teams that built for the long haul.


Of the QBs taken #1 in the draft

It took Terry Bradshaw 5 years to win his first SB.

Jim Plunkett was drafted by the Patriots, but it took him 10 years to win a Superbowl with a Raiders team that had already been to the Superbowl a few times.

Troy Aikman was drafted in 89, but didn't win his first superbowl until 93.

Peyton Manning took 9 years to win his first and only Super Bowl.

It took John Elway 15 years to win a Superbowl.


Out of the of 5 of those guys, 4 of them have won multiple superbowls... and the one who hasn't is only being called the greatest QB of all time... Peyton Manning.


The whole point is this...


The reason Panther fans flip out about this type of criticism is because frankly, our team has never really been paid much attention to. Since drafting Cam, the Panthers have been a consistent media target. It's just not in the way that we wanted it. Remember how Lebron James became the "villain" of the NBA. The NFL has it's heel in Cam Newton. And I don't mean "bad guy" in the sense of a Ray Rice type situation... but the guy they get to pick on because of his ability. The reason Cam gets this kind of hate is because he actually is that great. His numbers speak for themselves.


But here's the last of the numbers game:


In Dave Gettleman's tenure in the NFL the organizations he's been apart of have been to a total of 7 superbowls


4 with the Bills

1 with the Broncos (won)

2 with the Giants (won) Both against the Dynastic Patriots


3 out of 7 aint bad when you've only been to one.


Its never been solely the responsibility of a #1 draft pick (of any position) to lead his team to victory... they seldom do. Its the responsibility of the organization to put the team in positions to succeed. Don't chase every media roadrunner off of the cliff. We were in a rebuilding process last year and we weren't supposed to make the playoffs. That process is still in the making... of Champions.

When you're in a relationship with a woman.... you overlook her flaws because she performs.


When the relationship is over, you can be honest about her BS because you don't have to deal with it anymore. We got a new girl and a good thing going. Doesn't mean you hate ole girl... just means she's not in the picture... you don't care what she does...


Until that awkward moment when yall see each other having dinner at a restaurant with your new boo.  


Steve Smith is that girl. Sunday is that dinner....


And its time to EAT!
