#2965077 bersin ......here comes your chance son

Posted by rayzor on 19 September 2014 - 06:28 PM

If he gets 50 yards, he would surpass Steve Smith's per game average last year.


true. i think bersin would probably drop less than smitty did and wouldn't have the coverage he had to face, thanks to benjamin and olsen. but he also would have to deal with less of the very limited targets available thanks also to KB and olsen.


there's just not a lot of passes being thrown around in this offense and as good as bersin might be, at best he will be the third option behind benjamin and olsen who get the vast majority of targets.


the bar for success is set pretty low for any receiver beyond those two guys. success will be just catching the ball and making the most of the limited opportunities he's given.

it is a very small handful of pro-athletes (as in you could probably count them all on one, maybe two hands) who are getting all the attention for domestic abuse and as abhorrent and inexcusable as it is (even just putting yourself in a situation like hardy did where it even seems plausible)...this is NOT the NFL.


those guys don't represent the league and they shouldn't be getting all the attention they are. i'm not saying it should be swept under the rug, in fact we should be very hard on them and a definitive line drawn in the dirt which says you do this and you are done in the league, but then just walk away from them. don't give them more attention.


the focus should be on the good things these guys are doing in their communities and around the world. but, as i said in another thread, that's not what the majority of people are interested in. they are interested drama that comes from all of this and i point to all the threads that have been made over the last couple weeks compared to ones having to do with the successes of this team and our upcoming opponents. most people just find it more interesting to talk about so it gets more attention from the media. if you don't like the focus being on all of that, do your part and just don't contribute to it.


i like what mrs. blackburn said ever so bluntly, and i wish other wives would stand up and say the same things.

#2964968 You want to get fired up for Sunday night?

Posted by rayzor on 19 September 2014 - 05:10 PM

need to make this game as uncomfortable for steelers fans as possible without resorting to things that will get panther fans arrested or put on TMZ.


the team needs this to be a blowout right from the very beginning. shut those carpetbaggers up and make them want to leave early.


if you have tickets and want to sell them, don't sell to steeler fans.

#2964946 Are we overlooking the Steelers?

Posted by rayzor on 19 September 2014 - 05:00 PM

fans/media overlooking the steelers ≠  panthers overlooking the steelers


there's no way the team is looking at this game or their opponents the way outsiders are. not worried at all. it doesn't matter how we or the media looks at it. we can overlook the steelers and underestimate them as much as we want and it won't matter because that's not what the big guys actually playing and coaching the game will be doing.

Did you read the first page of this thread?  


yep. didn't see anything mentioning some outrageous expectations. i don't think anyone even among his strongest supporters have expectations anywhere close to what you threw out there. i saw someone mention 3rd down gold, but even with that you're looking at someone that cam might see as a reliable target on third down which means maybe 3-4, possibly even 5 first downs...and possibly just that many targets in those situations... which usually doesn't result in a lot of yardage. a reasonable, realistic, and pretty optimistic projection considering that cam still has olsen, benjamin, cotchery and/or avant, and his RBs might be 3-4 catches, 30-40 yards, and possibly a TD. in our offense, that would essentially be balling considering that we are a clock control offense with very limited opportunities to touch the ball and the fact that the QB spreads the ball around so much.


for all the excitement about him, i seriously doubt anyone expects more than what i just projected. i think most would be happy with just a couple catches in key situations.

#2964898 Former Carolina Panther Ma’ake Kemoeatu retires from the NFL

Posted by rayzor on 19 September 2014 - 04:16 PM

i wish he had been able to do more when he was here and able to stick around longer. always seemed like a good guy.


glad to see stuff like this. the league needs a lot more of this stuff reported than the current narrative that's going on, and i know there is a lot more good things being done by guys in the league but you can tell even by the amount of conversation that is going on in here that the bad stuff is just more interesting than the good stuff. media loves that bad stuff because they know that it will get more attention. the people stuck in those conversations in this forum are only proving that.

#2963494 Steelers DC Dick LeBeau on Cam: “He’s the quintessential modern QB”

Giving praise to the opposing team is coach speak but he rattled of some things in depth about Cam and his accomplishments.




#2963474 Our win against the Bucs is looking less impressive - ATL/TB watch thread

Posted by rayzor on 18 September 2014 - 08:13 PM

1) they are playing in atlanta. normally a very loud and difficult place to win in off the road.


2) we were playing in tampa....with a back up QB....with a new WR corps.....in a lot of heat in the middle of the day.


3) tampa bay is hurting and now deflated because now they know how bad they really are and mccown knows he sucks.


4) a win is a win is a win is a win.

i'm sure people looked at the seahawks win over us in charlotte last year and then saw the bills beat us and said "that win by the seahawks doesn't look all that impressive now." those people would look just as silly as this thread looks.

#2963434 Steelers DC Dick LeBeau on Cam: “He’s the quintessential modern QB”

Posted by rayzor on 18 September 2014 - 08:07 PM

What's up with this coach speech BS. Why can't someone say something positive about an opponent and truly mean it? I understand not wanting to say something negative about someone but you typically don't rattle off all these things if he's an average guy. Think he would spend this long talking about someone like Josh McCown or another similar QB?


no one said this was just coach speak.

#2963393 Steelers DC Dick LeBeau on Cam: “He’s the quintessential modern QB”

Posted by rayzor on 18 September 2014 - 08:02 PM

yeah, this wasn't just pregame opposing coach speak. this sounds like actual respect based on real knowledge.


of course a good bit of that turnaround had also to do with rivera and keek and their respective impacts on the team. cam is a great motivator, but he's not the only effective one on that team.

steeler fans fingers are too fat to push small buttons

i can't imagine the grease on them makes it any easier. those fingers hit the keyboard and just go sliding.

#2957878 Answering a Few Questions

Posted by rayzor on 16 September 2014 - 12:44 PM

the money he turned down is no joke, nor was the effort put into trying to get him to sell. i won't divulge any details, only that i know it couldn't have been an easy decision. the reason he didn't sell out was because this place would have likely gone through some big changes that, imo, would have changed the dynamic of this place to an extent that i think quite a few would have left and the community atmosphere (that i think is an incredible strength) would have suffered and all but died out.

i think the huddle has done a lot to help grow and strengthen the fanbase, even during some very weak years. the additions of some great players and a coaching staff and GM that actually knows how to use them and is keyed in on making this team strong for years to come has most certainly helped, but here is where the fanbase gets strong. here is where they get informed and can feed off each other and help that passion for our panthers grow. i was a fan from the beginning and went to my share of games, but it was the huddle that helped me become less of a casual fan and more of a devout and yeah, just an all around better fan.

thanks again, zod/jeremy, for creating and building this place.

thanks to the mods and admin who were here before me and who serve with me to help keep this place running smoothly(lol) for many years.

thanks to the thousands of members here who have come and gone to make this place so special and given me reasons to come back probably much more than i should have over the years.

and thanks again to jeremy for not selling out. considering what it was you passed up, i don't blame you a bit for trying to monetize this place a little. it may take a lot of work and tine on your part to come close to making what you were offered, but don't ever think that what you have done and what you are doing isn't appreciated.

NOW can i have that raise??????

i wanted us to draft him. in so many ways he reminded me of ricky proehl. i'm just glad we have him now.

#2956113 Miss Ted Ginn?

Posted by rayzor on 15 September 2014 - 07:50 PM

i believe in philly as a returner and versatile speedy threat. i believe in our WR corps as is right now. we are in better shape than last year.

no. i don't miss him or lafell or hixon or mitchell or capt or even smitty. i have moved on and i think the team has as well and the results have been very good.
