  1. Some teams want game managers as QBs while they look for someone new out of the draft to build an offense around..........other teams are building offenses around new draft picks that show such a potential or making due with what they have as work in progress. Newton's potential as a big duel threat QB would still be something worth building a team around if he was coming out of the college draft. But to be an aged big duel threat with concerns of the physical side of Cam's durability and the fact that he has established himself in the league so that if he is healthy would command a significant compensation is actually working against him at this time...not for him. Its somewhat like what actress model Lauren Bacall once said about women, "All women die two deaths..............the first to their beauty and youth..........and the 2nd they share in the same with men" Well, an athlete especially an elite one has the same curse...................they first lose stock from age/injuries as the elite ones experience first.................and then like all athletes lose stock from being too much a financial risk to maintain continued investment in them. I'm afraid Newton might be in that situation right now in his career.......
  2. You don't make decisions over money based on emotions if you do you will get beat up financially. A Newton type QB is a finely tuned athlete.........like race horse. You don't hope they get better after two years of not being unable to run the race. Cam has gone from a winning............to damaged goods in repair........to uncertain. There comes a time when you need to make a decision based on revenue not emotions. This is a business........ask Brady about that. "Nothing personal Tom, its only business" - David Kraft Same here.........
  3. Bucs get any semblance of a QB next year and they are going to cause a lot of trouble....they are loaded with talent that Winston just can't exploit enough on a consistent basis.......... Atlanta may win the division but peter out in the playoffs............Aints may lead during the year but may have injury issues at the QB position. Panthers have way too many questions marks to even consider what they do..........odds are they will look pretty pedestrian for a few years with or without Cam........
  4. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the MVP about the most valuable player......not necessarily the statistically best player? What I mean is that Cam would be the NFL's most valuable player to both the Panthers and any other team he would have played for based on what he is doing this year..............which is able to contribute to winning games and winning consistently throughout the year. If that is what an MVP is about then Russell Wilson falls short of that.............based on what I just outlined Carson Palmer is more of an MVP to his team and the league than Wilson. I don't see what the issue is here. Personally, I would like the voting of the MVP to take place after all playoffs games and the SB has been finished...................for instance if the Panthers were one and done and RW won the SB you could make a case then..............or if Carson Palmer won the SB then him........but if you have to base it on the regular season then Cam is the winner no doubt with a close second by Palmer and then Wilson.....maybe even Antonio Brown of the Steelers or AP with the Vikes......
  5. what kind of O line do the Bucs have? I'm going to say something very unpopular here........but if we don't figure out how to pressure the QB we leave ourselves exposed to be shredded in the secondary.......injuries along with age and lack of speed is catching up with the D line and most importantly the secondary late in the season and hit critical mass starting in the second half of the Giants game..... Look at the last 6 quarters of how our defense played......... It going to be like starting over here.... Bucs 27.....gulp!.........Cats 24
  6. Named after the admiral Isoroku Yammato who engineered the attack on Pearl Harbor........his first name means "57" in Japanese. He was given that name because his father was 57 yrs old when he was born. ...........and a 57 yard Stewart fumble recovery by Ed Dixon in week 4 against the Bucs sunk their ship while it kept the cats undefeated for the season......
  7. There is a path for talent to find itself right to the NFL with little or no regards to the social upbringing/maturity or the personal accountability, social responsibility and fiscal understanding of the athlete involved. Is it no surprise that far too many ex-athletes, especially in the NFL struggle to assimilate into society, avoid bankruptcy and manage violent behavior when they have been catered to groom their on field talents at all costs. It's time for the athlete to realize they are flesh and bone with such a short time in their life to play professionally...........and when that body fails them on the field they will have to face a life outside of football which many are ill prepare for...... Beckham is just one sad example of such behavior................. I love NFL football........but I also hate it was well..............much for the reasons stated above. Its a bittersweet contest for me to enjoy.
  8. Every team in the NFL is full of professionals and capable of playing at a high level...........well, maybe except for the Browns............ As a result the Panthers will need to focus on this game as much as they have any other. Its easy to get in trouble during a game with a mistake or two.........but the trend I see developing over this year that Cam's reads on passing plays is improving, while his passing is cleaner and more precise on designed plays........and the receiving core is starting to step up too. Our big offensive problem is setting up a screen that actually works............ The defense will come up big with a turnover or two on the Skins and as result....... I see Panthers winning.........27-17
  9. I'm not a fan of either team but the Hawks actions in this game made me end up rooting for NE............amazing that could happen for me........I can't stand NE but now I feel they deserved that win and the coaching staff of the Hawks just realized you can't play sandlot pick up football luck and get away with it forever....... More than anything else...........its nice............VERY NICE to see some other team than the Panthers blow a play call at a critical team in a game...............and coming in the biggest game/moment of them all!!!...................
  10. I haven't heard or seen anything to overhype that game because I don't look for it..........not too hard to do......when it comes time to play the game then I'll turn on the TV set............that's it..................why all the fuss about claiming its overhyped? Do other things all week...........
  11. I found it interesting that an officials time out during the game held up play because they didn't have the right ball on the line of scrimmage for NE by the ball boy?.....................First time I ever saw that in a game. Does anyone remember when NE won a playoff game with a snow plow clearing the ground for the FG kicker to have a clean kick.......but that plow was no where to be found for the opposing team when they had to kick a FG.
  12. You collectors might be interested in this story.....................I have an aunt that was an airline flight attendant in the early 60's........she happened to be selected as one of the charter flight attendants that was on the flight for the Beatles first visit to America and their return trip. On the way over she got a PR press photo taken of her with all four Beatles surround her along with manager Brian Epstein. the Press guy developed it and gave it to her.........in a large print. On the return flight everyone signed it for her..................she has lithographs of it but the original is secured in a bank security box Note a bad collectors piece? She also has many athletes from that time including Jim Brown and Johnny Unitas.
  13. Yeah when I was growing up the skirts where hiking way past the knees...........women were getting rid of bras..............and growing their hair done to their lower backs......... Whew what a time to be 14 yrs old.
  14. Back in 67' when I was in 7th grade we had a teacher like that right in the middle of the heydays of mini skirts..............she was our English teacher and lucky me my homeroom teacher too. No male and I mean no male paid attention in class.......she would have us sit in a semi circle and frequency she would sit in one of our desks right in front of us with those mini skirts. Good Lawd have mercy. I don't remember much from my Junior HS days except once when a buddy was chasing me down the hallway during lunch hour she was a hall monitor and saw me coming................I was attempting to jook past her when she stood her ground and stopped me with a bear hug. The highlight of my life as a preteen years.
