#3214362 Dick's Sporting Goods top 10 selling NFL Jerseys...

Posted by Newtcase on 20 January 2015 - 09:57 AM

LOL @ Manziel jerseys.  What has this punk done to warrant being #6 in jersey sales?

#3183858 Century Link will be quiet

Posted by Newtcase on 06 January 2015 - 11:27 PM

Century Link will be quiet when are beloved Panthers are on D.  The crowd noise of the Clink is made to be such a huge deal.  Is it a disadvantage to their defense and an advantage to ours that it won't be present when the Hawks are on offense?

Came hoping for a quality football discussion thread, leaving disappointed. 

#3176378 Lets talk about Seattle

Posted by Newtcase on 04 January 2015 - 12:19 AM

Everything about the five game streak we're on was improbable when we were 3-8-1.  Why not tack another improbable win on, all expectations from a mere six weeks ago have been exceeded already.  I don't see any way we could win easily but we sure could win ugly with this D.  Special teams scare me to death though.

#3167737 BOLD Predictions for Playoff Game

Posted by Newtcase on 01 January 2015 - 07:33 PM

I predict KB has been using a football as a pillow, wash cloth, spoon & plate, car keys, toothbrush, and a pet.  This is when everyone in the nation learns who KB is.  11 catches for 180 and 3 TD.


BOLD part...zero drops.

#3160750 6 NFC Playoff Teams

Posted by Newtcase on 28 December 2014 - 11:26 PM

Once you're in, the goal is a championship.  To raise that trophy you have to be the best, which means beating the best.  It doesn't matter who it is or where, if we got it than we got it.

#3160138 Super Bowl or BUST

Posted by Newtcase on 28 December 2014 - 09:06 PM

Remmers, Norwell, Norman, Benwikere, Ealy, Philly, Hardy (exemption suspension aside) just off the top of my head.  Isn't there enough here to prove it's how you draft not where you draft?

Dear Mr. Ryan


Get the fug off my home field.



#3160009 Super Bowl or BUST

Posted by Newtcase on 28 December 2014 - 08:40 PM

Dude, we're in the dance with the most favorable matchup possible at HOME to kick the party off.  This team is as hot as anyone right, yeah I agree Superbowl or bust, but for different reasons.  We're playing loose, confident and with house money, fug draft picks lets go get a title.

#3141898 If Atlanta AND Cleveland win this weekend....

Posted by Newtcase on 18 December 2014 - 01:53 PM

Might not even make top 10.


1. Kasay kicking off out of bounds in the Super Bowl.

2. Kerry Collins being a drunk washout, then leading the Giants (my dad's team) to a Super Bowl.

3. Trading a second round pick that eventually became the #33 overall pick for a FCS running QB, who would then be groomed as a failure of a slot receiver.

4. Delhomme meltdown against Arizona.

5. Twenty years of existence and no back to back winning seasons.

6. Winning game 1, then losing 15 in a row in 2001.

7. Andrew Luck proactively avoiding the team.

8. Drafting Jimmy Clausen. I knew he would suck, just knew it. I have witnesses from when the pick was made.

9. Somehow being the worst team in the league AND headed for cap hell at the same time in 2010.

10. The Rae Carruth and Fred Lane things happening within one year of each other.


There is a long and healthy tradition of disappointment here. Those are my top items; sure I left out some good ones. YMMV.


1.  Seeing Steve Smith in a different uniform.

#3139194 Four scenarios this weekend

Posted by Newtcase on 16 December 2014 - 12:40 PM

And what each will mean for us going forward. Only 2 games matter next week. Browns at Panthers and Falcons at Saints. Here are the ways it could play out this weekend.

1. Panthers win and Falcons win. Best case scenario. Eliminates Saints. Winner of Panthers at Falcons in week 17 wins the NFC South.

2. Panthers win and Saints win. Falcons eliminated. Panthers would need to beat Falcons and Bucs would need to upset the Saints in Tampa for us to make the playoffs.

3. Panthers lose and Falcons win. All 3 teams still alive. Panthers could win the NFC South with the same week 17 results as scenario 2.

4. Panthers lose and Saints win. It's over for us.


5.  The distant possibility of an ATL/NO or CAR/CLE tie. Or a week 17 tie between TB/NO or CAR/ATL brings a lot of alternatives into play.  Don't laugh, ties happen! :D

And that Greg Hardy was innocent.

#3094988 Dumpster Fire

Every offensive play is designed to work and gain a particular minimum yardage.  Same with defense, every play is designed to work and hold to a particular maximum yardage.  The most common theme to a plays success is purely execution and players winning their individual matchups.  Ideally, you should know before the game starts where you have an advantage, is there a spot on the line where you maul, a WR/DB matchup with significant speed/height advantage and vice versa for defense.  You would think both teams should have some awareness and sense of expectation of where they'll be on the losing side of a matchup week to week and get help to that area accordingly.  I.E. double coverage, chip blocking, max protection, gimmicks, blitzing, zone coverage, read option are all adjustments to make up for deficiencies in personnel.  


The problem is Shula doesn't seem to recognize who is "winning" or "exceed expectations" game to game.  Stewart has clearly been the better back but he isn't fed and we see DeAngelo far more that we should.  Kelvin hasn't been involved in the last two games until the 4th quarter.  We don't continue to run when the run is working.  We continue to attempt to force the ball down field over and over on 3rd down instead of manufacturing offense with plays that have already worked.  One thing you hear often in the NFL is do it until they stop you.  We do it until we anticipate they will stop us and then try to get cute, which most often has resulted in worse failure than we would have had if we just hadn't got cute.  Example, throwing an interception on 3rd on 2 after back to back 4 yard runs.  We anticipated they would gear up to stop the run on 3rd on 2 so we try to exploit that anticipation with a pass, however, everyone knows Shula didn't have the brass to just pound it, so press coverage resulted in an INT.  If we just run the ball there, and make them stop us we have a really good crack at converting that 3rd and moving on.


Play calling doesn't have to be so difficult.  Examine what's working and keep going back to it.  The player that's getting beat isn't going to suddenly get physically better, the other team will have to adjust to create a different outcome leaving new holes to exploit.  This is what good play callers do IMO.

#3060314 If you were in control of this team, what would you do right now?

Posted by Newtcase on 31 October 2014 - 08:31 AM

 We've won one game in the last 5, and have had our share of controversy and injuries already this season.


We've won one game of the last seven.

What a waste of Ginn in Arizona.
