Before the season, he always included Cam as one of the top QB's in the league. Now that the chips are down in Carolina, he's jumped ship. He is a "flavor of the day" bandwagoner! He and that Rick Reilly dude were bangin' on Cam Tuesday about him "keeping the media wating for an hour after the game" garbage. They said he was immature and needed to grow up. That may be true to an extent, but that whole thing was blown out of proportion to make Cam look bad. In two years, when this team has a competent coaching staff and can start spending some money on bringing in talent and win games...Cam and the rest of the Panthers will make these blowhards eat their words!
I had an epic meltdown... Foaming and spitting and cursing, and throwing my hat, and picking it up and fuggin throwing it again. My wife had no idea why I was so upset... I knew the game was over right then and there.
Dude..I feel your pain. I just knew something bad was fixing to happen after the fumble. When they completed that pass I just yelled "There it is!!" with my hands on my head. I just got up and stormed outside and sat in the hammock on the front porch. Unbelievable. We had that game. Really tired of this garbage week after week.
Hurney has ignored the position for years instead opting for lowly regarded draft picks (Sherrod Martin) or players off another team's trash pile (Marquand Manuel and now Nakamura). It's time to go after a hard hitter who can actually defend the pass and offer decent support against the run. Nakamura just gets run over.
Hurney ignores talent period! He goes after other teams' turds and hopes we can turn them into gold. It just doesn't work that often. Until he is gone or this organization starts to bring in some proven vets to fill in the gaping holes we have, this team will never flourish. You do build through the draft, but he sucks at drafting as well. The Grantland.com article on him last week was a real eye opener on his track record. Just a few good free agents who can play could be the difference in this team getting back to being a contender. Maybe one day we will have 1st team quality starters instead of others teams' practice squad players!
When was the last time we won an opening game? 2008? I don't remember. This was a total letdown due to all the hype we heard during the offseason. Cam all over ESPN, on commercials...all the talk on local sportstalk radio about how Chud is so awesome...Cam will win MVP...this team will be explosive...etc. Well, where is that talk now? Reality just slapped all of us in the face today. 10 yards rushing. Really?? No excuse. The good from this loss is that now we will once again be under the radar nationally, thank God! We can get back to EARNING respect. A 6-10 team deserves nothing, even with the rookie of the year on their roster. We beat bad teams with bad defenses last year. We deserve nothing. Hopefully this team will pick up their jock straps and get to work and play some football next week. The Saints* scored 32 points today...most of it late. They are still explosive. We ,can easily be 0-2 after next week. A very disappoining day indeed!
