  1. Allen is a better pocket passer and has a more cooler approach to the game....................Rudolph is a better scrambler but struggles to pass effectively and is too emotional for his own good. But I doubt either will be a full time starter next year........
  2. A lot could be said here but you take a contact sport..........add some players that come from a violent upbringing........and all of them used to defending their "territory".......and some PEDs in there (and you know it continues in the sport)..................then add the adrenaline of competition and you have a perfect recipe for this kind of activity which can lead to that Hatfield/McCoy retaliation in the future. The NFL has a problem from this to the helmet to helmet hits I saw last night let alone a fight like that...............and it will remain a problem until the NFL's pocket book is hit hard or they just eventually run out of players. Allow me to explain.............. I do some studying on this sport and its viability at the high school level........where the source of all future players start. 10 years ago there were 20 or so insurance carriers that offer riders that covered medical costs and/or legal liabilities of injuries in high school football games..... Today there are 2 companies left willing to insure that risk......... Now think about that for a minute. It won't be parents refusing to allow their children to play the game that will dry up the source of players in the future which will decimate college and the NFL as we know it today. It will be schools closing down their programs because they can't afford the insurance premiums to even have games and/or there just won't be any insurance companies left who can manage such risk to even offer such coverage. In the final analysis......the fate of football in this country is balanced on the bar stool legs of lawyers and insurance companies duking it out..........and that is the real fight behind the one you saw in this game.
  3. There are really not bad or talentless teams in the NFL.....taken as a whole......there are only those who don't execute as well as others. Right now the birds are starting to get their act together..........and will be a challenge in this game at the level GB was last week as I see it. They are no push over and of course there is a history here that motivates a visiting squad........I see this going down to the wire with 3 points taking it in the end.............not too confident Panthers will be that team though.
  4. Not surprised at this.........years ago I did research in business on the old Heritage USA site in Fort Mill where the Baker con artists set up all that stuff and for a while Disney had its eyes on buying that out to create a theme park that would dwarf Carowinds but the deal never came about..... However, creating Tepperworld seems to be comparing NFL Billionaire financial gonads with other Jerry Jones types..........and while it might work out, I can't imagine what could go wrong with a bunch of millionaire NFL players situated around all that night life and gamble huh? Maybe we can hire Barry Switzer out of retirement and he can make over the Panthers in the image of his 90's Cowboys and manage to win a SB while he and his players are dodging the law.........good grief this franchise is about to get more bizarre than it already is.
  5. Every time Bargeface opens his mouth at a press conference and starts stuttering like a village idiot is enough to give this guy his walking papers.........
  6. In other news Arthur Black is convinced CK is the answer to QB problems for a number of teams in the NFL including the Falcons.... Stated the owner of the Falcons in a recent interview....... "Colin has perfected one aspect of the QB position which gives him a leg up on the competition that we must seriously consider and that is his ability to kneel after the snap in a victory formation to run out the final few seconds on the clock.........dog gone it, Vick didn't work out for us..........but by golly CK is a natural at that final play with lots of experience and some team is going to take advantage of that.......and it just may be us"
  7. I said we'd be 7-9 this year and that was when Cam was to be the QB all season I still stand by that. I only hope it means it gets barge face Ron fired..............
  8. The Math had Armstrong ready to set down the Eagle in a boulder laden area of the moon which would have ruined or aborted the mission.......So Armstrong overrode the math and took controls with just enough time to find a clean landing space and saved the mission and possibly the lives of himself and Buzz............ Sometimes the math will tell you what to do but must be overridden in the moment where human assessment can factor more variables specific to the moment...... This was one of them in the game where they should have kicked a PA and if missed could have done the 2 pointer if needed later in the game.
  9. Ask the Oakland Raiders and the hard on history the NFL has going back to Al Davis about no calls and favored team status.......
  10. This is ridiculous...……...yeah Allen fell short a couple times because he could not run where Cam used to be able to do...………..but would have Cam played such a controlled heads up pocket passing game to even get them in position for Cam to be Cam? I say old Cam in this game would have lost too...…….but probably sooner than the last play. That stated I'm not sticking up for Allen either but he didn't look too bad out there today.
  11. Thanks I'm glad you see it that way..............I have done a lot of public speaking, TV and radio over my career and I use pauses strategically in speaking to emphasize a point. The problem is you can't leverage that kind of timing the same way in printed word unless you do something like this..............................right? Now my doing that ticks off a lot of folks because grammatically it is a nightmare but I find if you read something and use it a pause it has the same effect as speaking. And like music you need space at times...............to create the expression. Thanks.................
  12. Interesting you are on a subject I have a great deal of passion about.......... Isaac Newton may have been the greatest genius to have ever lived.........a person no less that the credentials of Albert Einstein said this about him. Look, imagine this for a minute........ Newton invented...........yes invented calculus up to all differential components................and without it no structural engineering in modern society would exist today, neither would high speed travel of any kind. Now how does one get to the point of being proficient in differential calculus to obtain a civil engineering degree? Well first you need basic math of grade school........then a year or two of Algerbra.........then years of Trig....along with Euclidean (2D) and Rihmenn (sp?) (3D) geometry...and calculus...most of this in high school and college.........an investment of time in calculus takes a 2 to 4 years to master when you add differential calculus to the equation......... Newton...........at the age of 26 on a dare from his friend of how to comprehend gravitational forces with projectiles and structural objects..........went home on one weekend...........and invented calculus as a mathematical relationship that explained all those observations. One weekend!!!.........at the age of 26!!! When it takes brilliant minds many years to master the applications of his equations!!! and he invented in in a few days???? Maybe he wasn't from this planet.......that's mind blowing.......
  13. Finally a thread about the true struggle for all NFL teams and especially this one..................draft for the best oline you can find and more importantly for depth. Hell, linemen risk getting rolled up on every play. You have to have depth for the NFL season. Everybody talks and notices skill positions..............while the online is the key. Move the chains consistently and you win games..............even with an average QB game manager............well maybe not with Jimmy Clawsen but you get the idea.
  14. What kind of crazy post is this? You say that Cam has this problem and that problem so now the 10 teams that wanted him in the past will want him now? I got news for all of you.........Cam is a man without a country in the NFL right now..........damaged goods that only works when it is not damaged and nobody knows if it will ever happen again. You know what kind of career Cam has at this point in the NFL?....................a post Steeler Cordell Stewart career that's what. If the guy has plenty of money and good business prospects he'd be smart to retire, manage his business and family while he still has a brain left. In case you haven't figure it out.......the NFL grinds up players and spits them out when they don't perform anymore.........just like a sale person who used to drive a lot revenue to a company that no longer does.......out the door they go....and qualified fresh meat come on in. ...."its nothing personal........its just business".........hmm sounds familiar huh?
  15. I give the Panthers about a 40% chance of winning and if they do it will be a close one....... If there is any pounding in the score it will be done by GB.......I can't see the Panthers blowing this team out in a win. but I could see it happen to the Panthers.......... More likely Panthers may be in the game to the 4th quarter and then the RR goes full retard and we lose......
  16. Interesting approach to the game this weekend..............by stats it looks like Panther could win or be in a very close game all the way. But having watched GB and knowing the situation they just came out of I won't be surprises if they hammer the Panthers....... On thing is for sure........we are not blowing them out of the water, if Panthers manage a win it will be by 7 pts or less. My gut tells me the Panthers have a 40% change of winning up there at best....
  17. If Cam is still interested in playing football in the NFL what do you think is reason would be beyond any monetary compensation? They way I figure it........the only thing left he has do to in the NFL beside making money is to get a ring........... Does he have a chance here?................not likely. So I think it depends if he gets traded or has an offer with another team then what are their chances? Otherwise what's left for him to do other than retire?
  18. Mike Tomczak.......to the pin and like Tomczak will have about the same forgettable career. This team needs a new oline before they think of wasting another QB............
  19. Now do I need to repeat this again?......after the Bucs game I said Cam will never play in another meaningful game again in Carolina. Allen will play reasonably if he can avoid injury but there will be no playoffs..............but like I said from the beginning there is no QB controversy here, you have an Oline problem and need to find a QB next year. Allen is a career back up journeyman QB that's it. BTW.....Cam will not be signed.....he will find another team and be a back up for a year or so then out of football all together. The NFL has no place for a big running QB to experience a long career ........they are like running backs.......and Cam was battered more than most while refs often looked the other way. That's reality in the NFL.........
  20. Cam Newton will never play another meaningful game for the Panthers........I've held that position since the Buc game. and after watching the 49er game ......Allen may not make it through the rest of this season with this oline. How much fun do you think it will be watching the GB game now?
  21. I grew up in Pgh and when they won 4 SBs in 6 years during the 70s I was so happy with that I didn't care if they ever won another one........
  22. Alright now let me change your mind about candy corn............. Here's the deal.............do any of you like payday candy bars? Okay then.........mix a can of planters cocktail salted/roasted peanuts in equal amount with candy corn in a bowl...........and eat a handful.. That is a payday bar.............you won't be able to tell the difference...........finally candy corn you can like!
  23. Don't count on it..........with this oline and ole Cam hanging on to the ball too long or trying to take off during a pocket collapse he might end up in IR before the year is over.....
