#2919173 Huddle prediction: who will win and why....

Posted by rayzor on 01 September 2014 - 10:44 AM

we will win 24-9.

our defense against a josh mccown led offense whose game planning and managing is being done by a guy without experience against pro-level defenses? i don't see them putting much, if any, on the scoreboard.

as weak as our offense may seem (which i don't agree with), i think that our defense and offense are better than theirs. the biggest thing, tho, is that i think their offense will do worse against our D than our offense will do against their D.

i think also we're just due for an opening day win. we'll come away with a couple rushing TDs, a passing TD to benjamin, and a couple FGs while all the bucs will be able to do is get a few FGs.

Also Ray check out the drive by truckers and lincoln Durham. Durham may be a bit too harsh for your tastes but he is the second coming of son house and jack white... He is a one man wrecking crew

i'm pretty familiar with the truckers. lincoln durham is a new one to me but i checked out a few of his songs on youtube and not too harsh at all (not much is, tbh). i loved it. i totally get the son volt/jack white. a couple others he made me think of is b
the black keys (well, the more raw stuff) and capt beefheart. in fact i was thinking if there was more acoustic beefheart out there it probably would have sounded like that. kind of an acoustic fusion of beefheart and roy estrada. thanks for pointing me in his direction. i've been out of the scene for a few years and there's probably quite a bit more i am missing out on.

and what you were talking about the posers...yeah, they kind of suck but i can remember being one at one point myself. i mean not in the dead scene but when i was in the processnof trying to find where i fit in and who i was i borrowed a lot from other people. i think most people do for a while. it just lasts longer for some people. i know they are having a blast withit, though, and while i shake my head at what they do and where their heads are at, i still think its cool where they are in life because it's the start of finding themselves. my hope is always that they get their poo togethe at some point, but it's hard for me to judge because i was once not too far from then. i may not have been as dumb or destructive, but i was still pretty dumb.

#2918645 The Carolina Panthers fan base is going to grow by 1 more...

Congrats. Another Panther fan into the fold.

Having never had kids, I don't see what the big deal is. But, people seem to go gaga over them. Once I learned that chicks dig dogs, that was as far as I wanted to go.

once you look down at them and they look up at you...that's when you know know what the big deal is. when you hold them while they sleep, as they learn to smile and laugh, as they learn to reach up and touch you face, when they reach for you at any time....those are the times you know what the big deal is. there is nothing better.

#2918631 Any Grateful Dead Fans?

its amazing to me how intolerant people are of each other in an age where tolerance of pretty much anything is expected. i've seen this quite a bit and i've probably been guilty of it.

someone comes and starts a thread talking about something that they think is pretty cool and they thought there might be others who would appreciate it (which there likely is) only to have early and often comments about how stupid it is.

sure, it's a free thought forum (more or less), but why not just live and let live? if some people want to share something with others who might appreciate it, why not let them have their little moment? is it that big of a deal to you that you have to go in there and share your negative opinion about it? why not just let some things go? why not show a little respect once and a while for people who like and are into different things that you are and just keep your negative thoughts about it to yourself. yeah, you've got just as much right to share your thoughts about it as they do, but why not just let it be?

locking thread. gonna ban the next poster to make one of them like it. the first parody was funny. anything after that is just annoying and i'm not in the mood to be annoyed.

#2916578 Is Cam Newton Really A Franchise QB

Posted by rayzor on 30 August 2014 - 12:51 PM

I understand. He just miss to many throws in my opinion. Thats all the difference between Drew Brees and Ryan Fitzpatrick

that's all the difference between fitzpatrick and brees? really?


cam had a better rating and comp% than brady and luck last year.


how many QBs would you put ahead of cam? rivers? flacco? ryan? luck?



i mean what is your standard? how many is too many "miss throws" to be considered a franchise QB?


does production not factor into the equation? just being a passer that doesn't miss his targets (or have them bounce off the numbers and out of the hands like with smitty, lafell, and ginn?)

#2916314 Is Cam Newton Really A Franchise QB

Posted by rayzor on 30 August 2014 - 11:19 AM

This is sometimes why I think to myself that Cam would have a better fanbase elsewhere instead of charlotte. Maybe the Oakland Raiders where they yearn for success so much that they would love and appreciate Cam and not take him for granted like the OP and many panther fans do. 


comments like this piss me off.


we have a few....VERY FEW (esp. when compared to the little-mindedness that existed before we saw what cam can do in year 1) "fans" that don't appreciate what cam brings and can do and "cam would have been better off with a fan base that appreciates him more"


get that poo out of here.


the dude absolutely owns this team and fan base, regardless of a handful of pinheaded faux-fans with big mouths.

#2916249 Is Cam Newton Really A Franchise QB

Posted by rayzor on 30 August 2014 - 11:00 AM

How is it that, after all the time and discussion that's gone into this topic on here, people still don't understand that there are different styles of quarterback?

Newton isn't a precision passer like Manning, Brady or Breed, so comparisons to them are empty.

Newton is a gunslinger, a 'scramble and gamble' QB whose passes are sometimes perfect and occasionally out there.

As such, he compares properly to guys like Favre, Elway and Bradshaw.

Are those guys franchise QBs?


100% agreed. i would even add steve young (esp. early on) and ken stabler.


gunslinger = risk-taker/big-play maker

#2916072 Final Panther cuts 8-30-2014

Posted by rayzor on 30 August 2014 - 09:39 AM

So what's the OL looking like now? Bell-Silatulu-Kalil-Turner-Chandler?

I really hope we sign someone


i really like the interior of that OL. it's OT and depth that has me worried.

#2916023 Final Panther cuts 8-30-2014

Posted by rayzor on 30 August 2014 - 09:03 AM

I liked King and hoped we would roll with 6 WRs to keep him, but this was inevitable as soon as we decided to go with 3 QBs. You can't have an extra guy at each spot, especially given Webb's experience at both position.

Throw in the fact that we very rarely go 4 wide and will probably do so even less this year with the amount of talent we have at TE, there was just no reason to have a 6th guy.


i kind of think that the decision to go with 3 receiving TEs had more to do with it.


tough to justify more than 8 receiving options with so many needs and so few targets.
