#3107023 When Rex Ryan gets fired from the Jets he will be the most sought after D coo...

Posted by Semaj on Yesterday, 10:54 PM

OK with him as a DC. Not interested for him as head coach. He will stunt Cams growth and the offense as a whole just like he has to the jets and to mark Sanchez who is suddenly revitalized in philly. It's obviously his offensive system. He likely will not be available as a DC though.

#3106756 Picking 8th vs 21st

Posted by Semaj on Yesterday, 02:10 PM

One other point is do you want to pick 21st in the 2nd round or 8th in the 2nd round???  Just saying, its more than the first round that is affected by our draft position.  I guess I am pulling for the Saints to get embarrassed in the first round.  I will take the high draft pick and hopefully a Rivera and company exit.  In the event that we make the playoffs, I will pull loudly for our team to do the impossible and cheer just as if we were 16-0 going in.  I am a fan of this team no matter the record.  

#3105908 Current projected temperature for Panthers/Vikings game

Posted by Semaj on 26 November 2014 - 02:14 PM

I spent 5 weeks in Minnesota on business in 2006. It was in the 30's the first week and then it went to 0 degrees and stayed at or below 0 for the next 5 weeks. Not one second did it get above 0. I am not exaggerating. Sunny, partly cloudy, mostly cloudy, cloudy or snowy, it was still 0 degrees or less. One day the high was -17 at the winter carnival and sunny. My camera battery kept draining in minutes and it was difficult taking pictures of the events. My point is that 17 is not that bad. They will be fine. I spent hours outside with my kids playing in the snow and sledding when it was at or below 0. By the way I grew up in LA and was living in Florida when I left for the trip. So I was definitely not accustomed to extreme cold weather.

I would like the Ron Rivera era to come to a close. So.............

#3104579 About the Panthers... what are you thankful for

Posted by Semaj on 25 November 2014 - 11:23 AM

That we have a great young Franchise QB and many other pieces to build a perennial winner in the very near future.  Go Panthers!

#3098464 Still in for Rivera~

Posted by Semaj on 20 November 2014 - 11:26 AM

For those that say fire Shula and keep Ron, I have a question for you.  Who hired Shula?  Shouldn't there be some accountability for hiring the wrong guy and refusing to part with him or hold him accountable?  If I am the district manager,  and I hire all  $h@tty managers and my district fails, is there not any responsibility on my part for doing a poor job of evaluating who I hired and holding them accountable.  Ultimately, it always starts at the TOP.  

#3098441 5 wins and we're in!

Posted by Semaj on 20 November 2014 - 11:10 AM

Hahahaha.   God, Please don't let it happen.  They will give Ron another extension on top of the other dumb extension.  You should automatically be disqualified if you cant finish at .500.  That would have to be the absolute worst playoff team to get into the playoffs ever.  I can hear it now.  The Panthers talking like they accomplished something amazing by making the playoffs in this utter fail of a division.  I don't think I could handle it.  

#3096897 Which would you rather see happen?

Posted by Semaj on 19 November 2014 - 10:05 AM

Your grandfather fought in WWII for freedom so buy some winter cloths and move to Russia if you want Communism so bad.
Also what your grandfather did has nothing to do with you, what have you done?

Yeah great logic equating WWII with the strategy to turn this franchise around. Just because we think it's in our best longterm interest to lose THIS SEASON doesn't mean that we won't fight if and when ISIS or AL Quaeda come here and openly start attacking us and our families. Heck as an ex military member, I think that we should kick their @sses now. Why wait? But this conversation isn't even about that. It's about a mediocre to bad football franchise and the inept coach that is holding us back. Let's fix it.

#3096864 Which would you rather see happen?

Posted by Semaj on 19 November 2014 - 09:40 AM

Because we've seen what Rivera can do with a talented roster and continuity.

Oh how quickly we forget last year.

Maybe it's the big man up front who got a little too big for his britches and expected the plug and play method to work no matter who the individuals are.

How quickly you have forgotten what Ron did in season 1 and 2. 3 bad seasons greater than 1 good . Not to mention the same clock management mistakes repeated over and over. This franchise has come to accept mediocrity. Not me. I want a Bill Belichek type for coach. Someone who knows how to win.

#3096851 Which would you rather see happen?

Posted by Semaj on 19 November 2014 - 09:34 AM

Vote for losing. Because what would be the point of WINNING? We have already seen what this team looks like against good teams like the Packers and even the Eagles who just got stomped by the Packers. We all know how this will end if we happen to win one of the worst divisions ever. We will sacrifice a top 10 or maybe a top 5 pick, bring back an inept coaching staff staff and possibly say goodbye to the best qb we have ever had after season 5, because he would want to play for a coaching staff that utilizes him properly. In addition, a high draft pick will put us in a much better position for a franchise LT that this teams sorely needs.

Posted by Semaj on 19 November 2014 - 09:06 AM

My fear is that by keeping Rivera we have essentially said #### ### to Cam. Would this organization really be dumb enough to choose Ron Rivera and company over Cam Newton? I don't put it past them. I mean we have 5 winning seasons in 20 years. We certainly are not the poster child for how to run a successful franchise

#3095360 Jason Avant Cut

Posted by Semaj on 18 November 2014 - 01:18 PM

The hell with this coaching staff. Avant was a good guy and besides he was 100% correct. My happiest day as a fan will be the day that Rivera and company are gone. I just hope DG doesn't screw it up with another poor conservative defensive coordinator hire.

#3093207 I admit it: I'm more relieved that Cam and the team showed out in the 4th...

Posted by Semaj on 17 November 2014 - 12:22 PM

Well first of all, let's settle this. To the average intelligent fan, the idea of just letting Newton leave should make about as much sense as letting Luke leave. Both players have already proven that they are franchise cornerstones with adequate talent around them.

You simply do not allow either of those guys to leave, that should not even be an option.


I don't know how much he is going to make, of course neither does anyone else here. All these doomsday salaries are pure speculation.


Also, the "bitching and moaning" about Newton needing talent around him is a pretty real glaring issue my friend. Amini was the only starter on offense that we managed to draft before this year, and things unfortunately are not looking too great for his future on the OL right now.


That means it took literally 4 years just to draft two starters (KB, Turner) to build around our quarterback.


You compare that to some of the other teams in the NFL with young quarterbacks and get back to me. Hint: It won't be pretty.


Right now what we have witnessed this season is just a shitstorm of different negative factors all coming together.


For all the idiotic threads arguing back and forth about our quarterback, none of it will matter if we end up hiring yet another conservative head coach who is hopelessly stuck in a completely different era. It starts at the very top, our owner has to adapt to where the league is now.

Almost every year, Green Bay delivers another gift wrapped 1st or 2nd round offensive side of the ball present to Aaron Rogers.  Now while I will admit that not every one of them has panned out, at least they have the correct focus on trying to give Rogers the tools to succeed.  Here is the link http://www.nfl.com/d...=1800&type=team


So Davante Adams, Eddie Lacy, Randall Cobb, and Jordy Nelson are just the skilled playmakers.  Derrek Sherrod, Bryan Bulaga,  and Daryn Colledge were all the offensive linemen taken in the first 2 rounds.  I didn't even bother to look at the the 3rd to 7th rounds.  However, I am sure there has also been some talent found there.  Green Bay is an example of a very well run franchise.  Jealous.  


Edit:  The Panthers have taken 2 offensive players in the first 2 rounds of the 3 drafts after Cam.  They are Amini and Kelvin.  Amini, should have never been drafted in the second friggin round.  He would have been available in the 3rd or 4th.  Kelvin is legit.  So I give them credit for 1 and not 2.  

#3092967 Rivera's Blunder - Illustrated

Posted by Semaj on 17 November 2014 - 10:11 AM

The players want to go down swinging. If their going to lose, they want to do it throwing a punch and not from receiving one. Ron Rivera has been a huge disappointment as a head coach and no amount of riverboat from this point forward changes my mind. He needs to go because he has a character defect as a head coach. We will never win the super bowl with him at the helm.

#3092411 What was the worst decision for Rivera.

Posted by Semaj on 16 November 2014 - 10:12 PM

The worst decision for Rivera, might have been applying for a job that he was under qualified for.
