    We sure did put up some magical numbers against five of the worst teams in the league. This isn't suprising at all. But anybody who thinks we're better off without one of the league's best defensive players is kidding themselves

    Our defense "came together" against garbage teams with garbage offense (excepting NO and Atlanta, who were both in a state of complete disarray by that point). I like the potential in our defense, and we still have a star in Luke and a solid DL. But our DL goes from being elite with Hardy, to being solid without him. No excuse not to bring him back unless it's just too expensive. And it doesn't appear whether he's too expensive or not is a question they're willing to look into. The Panthers' handling of this situation has been pure shameful.

    Posted Today, 08:26 AM So a new precedent has been set, JR seems to now think being accused automatically equals being guilty. I just cannot comprehend the mindset of not brining him back on the cheap if he's found not guilty, players love him and want him back. This could have a big effect in the locker room. A beloved player in the locker room ownership has already deemed guilty before his trial. This might be one of the biggest mistakes this organization has made if found not guilty. Imagine if Baltimore let Ray Lewis walk to another team even though he was found not guilty and he was on trial for accessory to murder!! I really can't wait until we get new ownership. Look on the bright side. This now makes room to add a guy that says yes sir and no sir and contributes to the community!! Super Bowl baby!

    I just hope he doesn't end up in Atlanta, Tampa, or NO.. This is like losing Pep all over again. .

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000469366/article/are-carolina-panthers-finished-with-greg-hardy It's all but official now. I think this is a huge mistake Hardy was a huge part of what made our defense work. I got so much joy watching our front 4 dismantle the pocket. Hopefully we can find someone close to Hardys level. **I KNOW THIS HAS BEEN DISCUSSED ALREADY IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO TALK ABOUT GREG HARDY DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD, SIMPLE.

    our defense came together towards the end without hardy, and put up some magical performances. I am completely fine with this, and I think overall, we're a better team without him.

    If the boat is in the Atlantic, you just jumped into the Pacific. Regardless of the outcome of Hardy's trial, the guy has consistently proven to be a headcase that you don't give $80 million to. I, for one, am not going to claim to know his status in the locker room, but is it not telling that not one player spoke out for Hardy during this whole mess? Baltimore should have left Ray Lewis go, I'd much rather cheer for an organization that values humanity over winning. Life is greater than football.

    Okay, this is long and I go off on some tangents but I bring it back together in the end for any that is interested. Academic fraud happens in some way, shape, or form at all universities with major college athletics. That is not to excuse UNC, or any others, but it is just a fact. Blaming the kids for not taking advantage of their opportunity, or the school for pushing and sometimes passing the line to keep their players eligible ignores bigger problems. The fact of the matter is that many of these kids do not have the ability to take advantage of this opportunity. Many like to simply blame the kids for this, and sometimes they are to blame, but the fact is that it is largely our fault as a society. Simply put, our education system is pathetic. On the one side you have the unions, whose purpose is to serve and protect teachers. The longest tenured ones, not the best, are the ones that are the most protected. On the other side you have the administrations, where their sole concern is the bottom line. In the middle you have the politicians, many of whom have not worked with kids a day in their life telling the teachers and districts what and how to teach and treating each child like some sort of identical robot that learns the same way at the same pace. Through all of this, the one group of people that the system is designed to serve gets ignored. Preparing the kids for college and their future lives is secondary to how well they can take a test. If a child is not ready for the next grade they are often given a social promotion, because who cares if they are ready for the rest of their lives as long as they do not feel inadequate when compared to their peers, right? I taught fifth grade for three years and often had kids come to me with a first and second grade reading level. I was expected to teach them fifth grade Science, Social Studies, etc. from a book that was written on a fifth grade level. How can they be expected to learn that? This says nothing about their trying to keep up in reading. But they keep getting promoted because people refuse to accept that some learn slower that others. This brings me back to the colleges. Many of these kids have been failed by a broken education system and are not even close to the point where they can be expected to take advantage of their opportunity. Yet we tell them that if they cannot do what for many is impossible they cannot play football/basketball. They are blessed with this talent yet we tell them that they cannot take advantage of it unless they do a job that we have failed to prepare them for. There really is no other realistic option for them. The fact is that one of two things needs to happen. The first option is that we can completely revamp the NCAA for football and basketball. They should not be the big money machines that they are. Model the sports after baseball where their is a legitimate minor league system for those that are the most talented and/or those for whom college is simply not for them. On the college side of things this route should be reserved for those that actually want to be student athletes. I read an article a few months ago about the MIT football team. They are only allowed to practice from 5pm-7pm, the rest of the time is for them to be students. This should be mandated across the board. If you want to be a student first, go to college, if you want to be an athlete first, go to the minors. The other option is that we keep everything the same and we admit that some of these kids are not college material. This requires that we give up on making sure they are "academically eligible," and then blowing a gasket when they cheat because they have no other options if they want to keep pursuing their natural talents. Yes, I am a UNC fan, but I have felt this way before and I will again, regardless of the university. People make billions of dollars on these kids and they are appalled when they want a piece. The kids are set up to fail academically and society is stunned when they cheat. For many of them, athletics is the one thing they are truly successful at, and it is wrong to tell them they cannot pursue it. It is time to either give them other options to pursue and develop their talent or start properly preparing them for college and financially compensating them fairly. Until then they can take whatever "improper benefits" they want, fail whatever classes they wish, and do whatever they can to stay academically eligible. As long as they are not involved in criminal activity where there are actual victims then I do not give a crap and I want them on the field/court.

    It's a really stupid theory being advanced by Patriots defenders, The Ravens noticed it in the game before as well but it didn't become a story till after the Colts game.

    If a player set on the bench and warmed his balls would he be subject to a fine? Just asking.

    It is suspicious. The only ball that was deflated by 2 psi was the one the Colts turned in. The rest were insignificantly below standard, within weather-affected range.

    I'm I the only one looking at the OLB's in this draft? Davis ain't getting younger and if we can find a OLB in the draft this year, that could let Davis finish his career here and maybe even mentor that draftee. I'm also intrigued by the WR position, this looks to be like a good draft to get some much needed speed in that WR position. I wouldn't mind if we double down on them this year, kind of what I wanted last year but eh. lol.
