#2841238 How Much Pressure on KB13?

Posted by carolinarolls on 06 July 2014 - 07:07 PM

What is neat about this situation is that KB has the opportunity to come in and be very helpful to his teammates, very productive by rookie standards, and become immediately popular to the fan base without developing above the curve or even beginning to realize his potential. The situation is perfect. We need a goal line threat and he is one. Should be one almost immediately out of the box. He can catch 5 TDs and draw double coverage on all the others opening up some other opportunities.

This will buy him time and in that time Ricky Proehl will make him the very best receiver we have ever seen in Carolina and one of the premier offensive weapons in the entire league.

I said it when he was drafted. He is going to fill a valuable role immediately AND has the potential to grow leaps and bounds above that in the coming years.

It's a beautiful thing.

#2804917 This may be the dumbest poo I've ever read...

Posted by carolinarolls on 30 May 2014 - 09:40 PM

And I barely made it past the title.

A bad idea.... A really bad idea.

I'm starting to think that I could build a website and get Mr Scot, SCP, and 5 other random huddlers together and we'd be able to put out a better product than this rubbish.

Me and a few dudes hooked up with a printer and made a monthly. I covered the panthers. (I can't even type that with a straight face)

It got me a sideline pass for every home game for two years. My last visit to BofA was delhommes fateful Saturday eve. My off the shelf slr was all I carried as I wandered the sidelines taking it all in. It never got old.

The goal of the pub was to secure " ungettable " access to whatever. We got college everything outside of UNC and Ncsu who only give play to weeklys. I did get one sideline pass to UNC per year. BC one year and I can't remember the other.

The pub still exists in a different form today.

What you casually mentioned is MUCH easier than you think. Our group had a sum total of ZERO experience in the industry when we got started. None of us even write as a hobby. It was hilarious. Doors just kept opening the harder we sold it.

What we invested was more than reasonable for what we got in return. An un-buyable ticket. Eventually the damn thing paid for itself with ads here and there.

I still can't believe it worked to this day, but it did.

#2800226 San Diego St. RB Adam Muema leaves the combine for "religious reasons"

Posted by carolinarolls on 26 May 2014 - 10:54 AM

the vast majority of people, even those that consider themselves to be "religious" have little to no idea whatsoever about the theology that supports and/or defines the source of their faith.

Its unfortunate but most religions are based on what some person interprets and forcefeeds to his "flock". Truth is regularly compromised and often bastardized.

Most people are sheep. They may be mindless drones under the conrol of the local baptist minister with a warped sense of reality or sheep who have heard time and time again the "science to support" quips from edgy hipsters and morally questionable self-promoters. In either case, they are still sheep

It is quite believable that in this day and time this kid has construed in his mind some sort of belief that is behind his actions. It is also possible that since religion is so polarizing among the public and media that this is all a ploy. In reality, the interpretations of religion, faith, demoninations, and theolgy of Christianity alone virtually disallow any sound judgement from any one body of believers/nonbelievers. Not to mention some of the other major religions of the world and their resectful splintered sects of devout followers.

Most people confuse religion with faith. Did this kid have faith that his decision was sound based on something from a higher power? Maybe so. Its really not for others to judge something that goes on inside of another persons head and is essentially harmless to the public.

What most fail to realize is that it takes the same amount of faith to poo poo religion as it does to accept it. So what do the detractors really prove when they make fun of something they A- Don't understand and B- Are devoting similar faith-based effort just to be the glaring opposition.

Im not particularly religious myself but I just find it stupid to make fun of it. It takes as much faith to not believe as it does to believe.

#2799727 Proehl on 1st visit with Kelvin Benjamin: "I was in awe to be honest"

Posted by carolinarolls on 25 May 2014 - 03:05 PM

I mentioned the following to some people who were pisst in the immediate days following the draft and even called in and left a message on the whiner line during a 5 minute moment of weakness where I attempted to stomach douchebag Marcus in exchange for some local feel about KB. It seems everybody was bitching and moaning about the kid mostly based on his lack of polish and how much of a raw project he is. Those concerns are warranted but there is more to this pick than whether or not one believes the ceiling is sky high and how much of a gamble it is for him to reach it.

In actuality he is the epitome of what the Panthers need but also comes with a very, very high ceiling that could place him among the elite of the elite in the game.

Carolina was 52% last year in Red Zone conversion. They were considrably better away from BofA and they were just over 7 points lower in this stat than they were in 2012. Tolbert provided much of this production until everyone stacked the box against it later in the season. If it were not for one of the studliest bowling balls to tote the rock since Jerome Bettis wearing a Laser Blue uni, Carolina's Red Zone rank would likely be much lower than where they finished the year with (19th).

So. Enter KB. Bigger than everyone else with some pretty nifty athleticism and hands that practically engulf the pigskin. If he never turns into the polished route runner or the wiley old vet most peole think he is far from currently, he still will serve a huge purpose for Riv and Cam this year in the Red Zone alone. If he never catches one TD all season from inside the 5 (highly doubtfl to say the least) he will at minimum comand under and over coverage on every snap taking a couple people out of the box.

Now and for the big part. Lets imagine that he can and does begin to "get it". Suppose the light comes on sometime before the end of his sophomoe campaign on all parts of the field and not just in the Red Zone. Think for a moment how awesome it is to get a rookie that will provide a HUGE help right out of the gate and yet still has a high probablility to mature into the high ceiling his physical size garners from all the analysts.

In the end, with an extrememly late first round pick DG acquired for the Panthers an immediate fix to a glaring problem with the offense and a possible homerun prospect with as much value (if potential ever materializes) as any player drafted in '14. We got as close as you can get to a "sure thing" insofar as Red Zone production goes and potential offensive phenom all in one pick.

That my friends is smart muther-frickin football if you ask me.

I'd be happy with an hour of silence instead of listening to Marcus James.

#2781519 Yahoo Sports draft grades: Carolina atop the NFC South

Posted by carolinarolls on 11 May 2014 - 09:07 PM

Some Carolina fans are just dumb.





and its not just Carolina fans..  its the GP across the board inclusive of all NFL fans.  


I make fun of them all when they are not looking but truth be told I am glad they exist to buy the tickets and tshirts and jerseys and flat bills that allow all the-- wait.  Hell no.  Its the dumb people that facilitate the delusions of grandeur these players have to begin with making everything so damn expensive in the first place.


Most of these people haven't a clue what they need and don;t even know what they want without some outside advice.  There is a reason why the airwaves are chock full of has-beens and wannabes telling them what to say around the water coolers every morning. The lines around the block full of advertisers marketing the sale of unnecessary crap to the masses is proof positive that a feeding frenzy perpetuates around sports and is fueled by the dollars of the ignorant.

#2780440 Forget Brandon Coleman

Posted by carolinarolls on 11 May 2014 - 08:53 AM

Yeah...Zod started a thread about it in the Lounge. I'm sure edits will be back today/tomorrow once he goes through all of the contest entries.

Ok. Forgot about the contest.

Too much government if you ask me. Let the douchebags out themselves instead of restricting their douchey behavior. It's truly amazing how smart some people think they are.

To each his own I guess.

What would truly be helpful is an ability to flag these morons. I don't visit enough to keep everybody straight. I don't really pay attention to SNs that much either. Could be helpful to put the scarlet letter on a poster that will stick with them. Kinda like "ignore" but a bit less pussified.

#2778710 6th Round - Carolina selects RB Tyler Gaffney, Stanford

Posted by carolinarolls on 10 May 2014 - 04:45 PM

I give Gettleman a A- first three rounds, and a big fat F the last four rounds. This is exactly what I would have drafted in rounds 4-7.


Yes, 100%, unapologetic needs based drafting because thats how rounds 4-7 should be. NEED

He may agree with you had the right players to fill those slots been available.

You are aware of the other 31 teams making picks at the same time from the same pool of players right?

#2778661 6th Round - Carolina selects RB Tyler Gaffney, Stanford

Posted by carolinarolls on 10 May 2014 - 04:38 PM


Five years ago this kid does not make it past pick 50.

League has changed but young strong backs with good knees are always going to be needed. This kid has some vision, decent hands, and a bit of a mean streak too. I see nothing to complain about.

Stanford kid too. Don't get confused here wuffpupz.. Hahaaa!

You people who can't see past what we did not get to appreciate what we did get obviously haven't the slightest clue how the NFL draft works and how a big board changes constantly. Strategies are fluid. The upcoming season is not the last one to ever be played. Smart GMs don't go for broke.

Oh. And no one finds all the GM must be a moron quips as humorous. Smart people are fully aware that dumb people always seem to take the cheap and easy route. It never fails.

I had. Oops.

Oh. We'll that feels kinda nice. Thanks Bleys. A little bonus!

#2777848 4th Round - Carolina selects Tre Boston, S, UNC

Posted by carolinarolls on 10 May 2014 - 02:37 PM

Has size and skill. Plays a little too aggressive sometimes. Swings for the fence a lot. He's not a huge hitter but does not mind mixing it up. Definitely seems to play the ball more than the man sometimes and therefore seems to take too many chances. Some proper discipline could turn this very experienced starter into a very serviceable db with decent hands and speed who can also contribute on ST.

I don't hate it. Especially for where they got him.
