#1876377 Nice Article On Our New Kicker

Posted by rayzor on 29 August 2012 - 09:52 AM

anyone think that medlock was holding back on kickoffs in preseason? only reason i could see that is to get the coverage units experience in a safe atmosphere (a game that doesn't count) in dealing with returners.

we all know he's got a cannon for a leg. kicking it out of the end zone shouldn't be a problem for him at all.

#1875652 Panther Coaches in Season 2.

Posted by rayzor on 28 August 2012 - 04:05 PM

I'd be upset if we don't make the playoffs (obviously), but I honestly don't know why people on here "expect" playoffs. We are still a very young football team. There are question marks at serveral positions. We are still riddled with inexperience among the players and coaching staff. There are some tough opponents in our conference and even in our own division. If this was an old team with aging veterans with the "window" closing on us, then I would be worried and nervous and impatient.

Some people on here feel like we've waited forever on this current personnel to get us that Lombardi when it's only been a couple of seasons with this coaching staff and only a couple of seasons separating us from the worst record in the league. Do I want to go this team to go to the playoffs? Of course. Do I expect them to? Not really. I do enjoy being surprised though (that's why I tune in every season). This whole "playoffs or bust" mentality is just outrageous to me. I'm hoping for a win every week as I should, but I'm not gonna take a poo on Jerry's doorstep if we don't make the playoffs.

Does this make me a fake fan?

THIS isn't the reason you're a fake fan. lol

i agree, though. some expect perfection or pretty dadburn close to it. i expect this team to be a monster that is just in it's beginning phase and whose window of opportunity is just now starting to crack open. i think we can and if we were in the AFC i'm pretty sure we would be. but even in the NFC i think we have the talent to pull it off. it may be kind of lopsided in some aspects but most championship teams are. the key to many is to have one or two aspects that are dominant and the rest of the team just not be bad enough to hold it back significantly. coaching also has a lot to do with it as well and i think we have the coaching staff that can make players play better than they are and who is able to adapt to situations that they are in.

it's hard to be patient, but i really like the direction this team is going. i don't expect perfection yet. it's got a long time to go, but i don't see anything wrong with being giddy about even what this team can do this year.

i've dreaded enough seasons in the past decade. i've groaned and moaned enough. it's a new era and i'll be damned if someone is going to piss in my cheerios. i am unapologetically optimistic about this team and if that means being a homer, then i'll wear that badge with pride and laugh at those too scared to wear it.

#1873681 Kuechly Vs Coples

Posted by rayzor on 27 August 2012 - 09:31 AM

easily kuechly....and it's not just homerism.

coples might have a few more sacks and exciting clips for a highlight reel, but kuechly is the guy that is going to have the biggest impact overall. coples is a big play guy, but we'll see that kuechly is that as well...but kuechly will bring more. crap...just the fact that kuechly will be on the field more will show that.

we may still need a pass rusher, but we made the team much stronger with the kuechly pick than we would have with coples. it may not be as sexy (as if anything with those brands on the arm could be considered anything but horrifying) but kuechly was the better pick.

#1873508 Kuechly may be the best defensive player on the team already.

Posted by rayzor on 27 August 2012 - 07:43 AM

beason + kuechly on defense = cam newton on offense

i feel really good about what we have going on. anderson makes them one of the best LB corps in the league. TD makes them the best. the LB corps is the backbone of this defense...it's the core. with that great of a core the rest of the D will be better. it will make the rest of the talent around them look better than they might otherwise, much in the same way a good QB makes his receivers and the offense look better than it might otherwise.

i know this is supposed to be about kuechly and i agree about him. i think we undersold him. in the last month or so leading up to the draft (contrary to how i thought about him previous to that) i said that i thought he was not just the best LB in the draft, but the 2nd best defensive player in the draft and one of the top 5 talents overall in the draft. even with that, i think i may have underestimated him. i think just in the same way that even the staunchest of cam supporters were surprised at how well he did, those who were the biggest kuechly bell ringers will be surprised at how well he does. this kid is no kid. i understand tempering enthusiasm, but i fully believe in this case it's not needed. even beason knew what we were getting when we got him. i'm excited about beason and kuechly being on the field together. as good as those two are individually, they are going to make each other better.

for the record, I just shaved the goat for a job interview.. so what the fug do I know...

ohhhh...goattee. i thought this was some kind of bizarre religious ritual or some kind of offering to the gods. "i must shave this goat so that Eleutheas, Goddess of Protractors and Hammocks will grant me this job i so desire."

i should have taken a longer nap.

#1871752 Thomas Davis to Start?

Posted by rayzor on 26 August 2012 - 05:02 PM

Michele Tafoya talks with Thomas Davis about coming back from his 3rd ACL tear to same knee.


i love it. i'm going to be gripping my seat every time i see him on the field but i'm excited for him. i really hope he pulls it off. the team is much better for it if he can. i love the way the team has stuck by him. as long as he kept fighting and working to get back they were going to give him the opportunity because he's just that good and just that important an entity on this team.
