#3189999 Panthers reportedly interested in Duran Carter (Chris Carter's Son)

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 10 January 2015 - 03:41 AM

Rather get a free agent like Randall Cobb. Then draft another speedster in this draft. I really like the kid from ECU, can't remember his name, he's really underrated.

#3188474 Why is Russell Wilson a better quarterback than Cam Newton? - Seattle Times

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 09 January 2015 - 08:55 AM

I'm really tired of this picture that the media paints of Cam.

For starters, Russell Wilson is labeled as mature and Cam is labeled as a diva. The last time I checked, the Seahawks are the one's that had a divided locker room this year (which Wilson was at the center of), not the Panthers. But hey, let's paint a picture of Cam that displays him as a player that wastes his time and has had everything handed to him.

Wait a minute though, didn't Cam get arrested in college, turn his life around, win two national titles (JUCO/NCAA), get accused of committing an NCAA violation, get drafted first overall, set tons of records, have a sub par 2nd season, lead his team the playoffs the next year, injure his ankle, break his ribs, get in a serious car wreck....

And is now playing at an elite level with the city of
Charlotte in his corner (all while being somewhat injured).

The man has faced more adversity in 25 years than some will in their entire life (most likely this journalist) and on top that the media has decided to single handily put his life under a microscope and criticize him for every little thing (even the way he dresses). After re-reading what I just wrote, that doesn't sound like a spoiled kid to me. That sounds like a fighter.

Secondly, Cam is labeled as erratic, crazy, and a time waster. Well that's news to me. I didn't realize that spending time conducting 7v7's for local HS kids, buying kids Christmas gifts, buying families Turkey's on Thanksgiving, or working at soup kitchens were tendencies of a crazy, time wasting quarterback. Oh and let's not forget, he also finds time to be a franchise quarterback.

It's time for the media to realize that Cam's persona isn't a slight at them, their organization, or whatever team they cover.

His first down celebration, his superman pose, his contagious smile, his funny interview cliches, his impersonation of MJ (towel over the head).... it's not for the media.

It's for the fans of the Carolina Panthers and the city of Charlotte and I'll be damned if some asshole is going to influence my opinion on Mr. Newton due to a piss poor article like the one I just read.

As for Wilson being better than Cam (as the article suggests), we'll see come Saturday evening.

Reading this in an angry black woman's voice in my head made it feel more fierce.

I thought it was an established rule that when visiting enemy territory, regardless if it is where you reside, you flip the bird to their stadium. Dafuq brah?!

What movie is being referenced? I'm a bit oblivious to be honest.

#3186348 RR not ruling out calling up Hill

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 08 January 2015 - 03:24 AM

I love the Idea of Hill. Unfortunately his drops are what make me cringe. KB is already Droptimus Prime, we don't need two players that drop easy passes. That would kill this offense completely.

I already did my part and pinned this in the Big Carolina Panthers group on Facebook. Not sure if that has helped, hope it does.

What the fug is going on? This season is being set up to be a feature film on the Hallmark Channel in a couple of years. We have to win the Super Bowl now.

#3153176 Is your opinion of the Gettie changing?

Posted by Ivan The Awesome on 25 December 2014 - 06:11 PM

Seeing his body of work since the beginning of his career. Then his arrival as a GM for the Panthers. I had a small idea of how it was going to be.



Seeing him work the cap, negotiate with players. Be stern with contracts, give due diligence to the draft, just now we're starting to see the fruits of his labor even though it is in a crappy division. He has a good head on his shoulders and for the most part has done an amazing job in my opinion. So I haven't wavered from my stance of Gettleman. I still believe he is the right man for the job. He's not afraid to do what other GM's wouldn't do. I love that he's very arbitrary. 


I can't wait to see how he builds around Cam. We're seeing it right now, once he gets a couple more playmakers in here and hog mollies at the Tackle position. I think this team will be in the playoffs regularly. It just takes time. Also, having money would help him.  The situation he was put in and what he has done so far, I have to say he's a miracle worker.
