  1. That's debatable. Seeing a good defensive battle is as entertaining as well. The rules need to be equal so both sides of the ball are on the same level. Also what is so wrong with a game with under 40 points. If you want a lot of scoring. Go to an Arena game. Look at this forum. We probably have too very very good CB but due to the rules they can't do but so much. All you hear is Bradberry suck or this CB or that CB is terrible. It could also be these terrible rules keep them from playing a better brand of football. PI against the offense is a rare a penalty. We got buried by one against Pittsburgh. I believe their 2nd offensive TD the receiver clearly pushed off. It's a game. Nowadays teams just stack up on offensive talent and pray their defense holds up better than the other teams defense. Why build an elite defense when everything is favorable to the offense. The game has over-evolved.
  2. Best Case we win out expect for final game against the Saints in N.O. Finish 12-4 We win the division because tie breaker Atl > TB (NO loses along the way 2 more time) Worst Case - Teams have figured out a way to beat us and we win only 2 more games finish 8-8 and keep our streak going.
  3. Considering our defense is not up to par with our past defensive teams. This would be fair finish.

    Hypothetical next HC for the Panthers...

    I agree as much as those that hate Rivera our offense is getting better week by week. I don't see a HC being removed and the OC retained. I think part of why Turner came here was to work with Ron again. Rivera needs to fix the DL. About the only core player I see from the DL is Short. But, like you said, Rivera is a go defensive mind and will fix this.

    Thursday Night Packers vs Seahawks

    I believe this has happened more than a couple of seasons. Seems to me someone mentioned this a couple of seasons ago. Just as short week gives teams little to prepare the 1/2 bye helps those teams. While the players might not be available the coaching staff has more time to prepare. I don't believe for one second that this was a just an oversight. The NFL has their darling teams, and we're not one of them. Scheduling can help or hurt a team just as much as the games.

    Darius Slay in awe of CMC

    Oh, I have no doubt it was a compliment. Anyone that doesn't see him as a danger to a defense will soon learn. Reminds me of Fred Smoots (Minnesota Vikings 2005) when he downplayed how good Smitty was and said he was going to shut him down. 201 yds 1 TD and 11 for 11 on targets. He learned... Smoots was never the same after that game.

    Darius Slay in awe of CMC

    So basically if he was black he wouldn't have even mentioned it. Sound pretty freaking racist to me. TBH I don't see many black RB with this talent. Kareem Hunt maybe. This forum is so fickle. When someone says the same thing about the "Black QB" the whole damn forum erupts into a racist rant. Can't have it both ways.... If the "Black QB" comments are racist than the "White RB" comments are racist. He could have given props to CMC without bringing race in it. CMC is a unique talent. PERIOD.

    which player does this forum overrate the most?

    I think it is Torey Smith. He's played ok but we could have used that money we spent on him for a decent pass rush specialist. Being a Veteran in the locker room doesn't justify the money we spent on him.

    Hey everyone, look, David Newton

    I guess closing your eyes in disgust is now sleeping. Anyone that believes he was sleeping is a moron. I don't know of any competitor that hasn't just closed their eyes in disgust once or twice in their careers. We got our asses handed to us and closing your eyes wishing it would go away might not have been a bad thought. ESPN is the biggest bandwagon outfit out there. If it isn't Dallas, NO, NE or GB they will always look for something to downplay another team to bring their boys to the top.

    I always wondered ..........

    I don't think it is so much of how explosive but when we use them. Any time all three are on the field it causes some serious issues for the defense. Samuel, Moore and CMC are potentially a touchdown waiting to happen anytime they touch the ball. This opens the door for Olsen and gives Cam some running lanes. While Wright and Funchess are clutch receivers they don't bring fear to a defense like these three do.

    I always wondered ..........

    The argument that he is going to get hurt is so weak. You don't put one of your best players on the bench just because you are worried he is going to get hurt. Makes no damn sense. If he isn't fatigued and wearing down. Let him play. Teams probably sigh just a bit when he's on the bench. One less weapon to worry about. Keep him on the field and make teams focus on more than one player.

    Wildcard Contenders; Big Week Folks

    That damn tie will come back to haunt GB. I will take GB and as much as I hate to Dallas and gotta go with the Bears to stretch their lead in the NFCN.
  13. Not that CMC needs it but Barner will give us someone who can spell him for a couple of plays.

    Then I must be the cream of the crop because he does almost all mine. LOL Sad to see he's been here so long and acts like a child because he doesn't agree with my POV. Oh well doesn't bother me just notice it.

    IGO I've been around many years and I am as appreciative today as I was when I first found this forum. I may not post but I am on here just about everyday reading the good topics, especially the practice quotes and tweets.
