#3030973 On the Luke Kuechly Ejection

Posted by CarolinaSock on 19 October 2014 - 05:15 PM

Not trolling here and this is my first post as a huddle member but is anyone else unimpressed with Luke's play? Leads in tackles sure but gets beat every game and just looks soft. Gimme TD all day dudes hard as nails.

 

Davis has been struggling lately with his tackling. He's missing numerous tackles every game and not arm tackles but where he squares a guy up and is just shrugged off.




#3019974 Cam Newton had more rushing yards yesterday than any of our backs have had al...

The Bengals sold out on the running back over and over again on the read option, leaving Cam wide open running lanes. I'd hope any quarterback with any speed would keep it in these situations.




#3007039 Sports Illustrated: "A round of applause for Greg Olsen, please."

Carolina Kuechly.

Watt, best defensive player.
Kuechly, best mlb.
Luck, best young QB.
Conte, best safety.
Just the common denominator followed by the word 'best' is the NFL's marketing strategy.

Package that up and the public will eat that poo up. The odd of those guys being the best while not playing for the best team is slim to none. Of course some players will have good stretches. It's just good marketing for the media to pound on those stretches. Especially if it fits the common denominator.

Remember that the media view certain communities doing well in sport as a novelty act. They love that stuff. They can't wait to throw all their hyperbole on certain players. The same reason analysts are almost contractually obligated to mention Larry Bird in every discussion about the greatest bball players of all time. All about marketing and selling an idea. People love ideas.

That's why I love about the CB position, like the NBA, you can't just fill in the blank followed by the word 'best'. You actually have to be skilled and athletic to cut it.


We get it, white people can't be better athletes than blacks in reality and the media propping people up is the only reason they get any recognition at all. But when has Conte ever been called the best safety?


#3004937 Several Panthers make up PFF top 10 (and, bottom 10)

I have a hard time putting any trust in rankings with Ryan Tannehill as a top 10 quarterback and Eli ahead of Peyton. 




#3000780 Shula, take note

Why do people act like Benjamin was the only one running a pattern? Cam chose to throw to him and made a horrible throw on top of that. I don't understand why people focus so hard on just the person Cam throws to and pretend that he only had that one option. I promise that having one person run a deep route on 3rd and short is common place, just most quarterbacks don't target them unless it's a favorable matchup.

stroking his buddy in the owner's suite and promising him he'll keep Hardy without pay as long as he needs him to

Getting the ball hit out of your hands before you can even bring it in is not a drop.

Thought some folks here might find this interesting. Looks at his potential and the positives/negatives of locking him up with a reasonable deal, overpay, or letting walk.

#2972360 bersin ......here comes your chance son

Posted by CarolinaSock on 22 September 2014 - 08:44 AM

The guy that hit him is 262lbs. Find me a receiver that wouldn't get knocked off his route if he's hit by that guy. You would think he was pancaked by a 180lb corner the way you guys are ripping him.


#2952943 RB Situation

Posted by CarolinaSock on 14 September 2014 - 07:05 PM

He's averaging 2.4 yards per carry.

Are you watching the games or just reading box scores? Do you see him having to shrug guys off behind the line on nearly every carry? The run blocking was just horrible today. Stewart ran his ass off just to get the yards he did.




#2952852 RB Situation

Posted by CarolinaSock on 14 September 2014 - 06:44 PM

I'm most concerned about Jonathan Stewart. He's looked good enough receiving, but he's been way too inconsistent rushing.

 

Not sure what games your watching but he's earned every yard he's gotten. He's been hit in the backfield on more than half of his runs. Our run blocking was atrocious today. 




#2934578 All you Anderson and R.R haters please stand up

Posted by CarolinaSock on 07 September 2014 - 06:58 PM

If Cam had a game where he threw 2 touchdowns, had no turnovers, and completed 70% of his passes, everyone would sing his praises. So why on earth is our backup QB getting put down for that stat line? You guys do realize we only averaged a whopping 23 points last year, which we have if Gano doesn't shank one. This win is really showing out the Cam first fans.




#2917383 Sign Stephen hill you assholes

Posted by CarolinaSock on 30 August 2014 - 05:44 PM

White guy from Charlotte.

 

Try again big guy. Receiver with good size that gets open and catches everything thrown his way.




#2916472 Other NFL cuts of interest....

Posted by CarolinaSock on 30 August 2014 - 12:16 PM

This boards obsession with measurables always makes me laugh. Oh a tall fast guy is available, quick grab him. Ignore his stone hands and inability to run routes, it's all about potential. You guys would have wanted Jerry Rice dropped for some of these guys because he only ran a 4.7 40. Too many people over value physical attributes and grossly under value actual talent and skill.
