Ugh! They just suck me in every year (and are then prone to sucking).
  3. It is a sign portending good things for this weekend. She went to Berkeley and we are playing the 49ers. A homecoming of sorts for the newest Panthers reporter and, of course, Christian McCaffrey.

  5. I suspect the reference is to a tug of war between Cam and his "camp" and the Panthers decision makers. It does appear that the Panthers are trying to "slow play" this a tad and that some media leaks lead me to believe the the Newton camp wants speed up the process. Of course, it is just suppostion at this point.

  7. I suggest that you reread what I said. The reports made perfect sense. By playing injured he was hurting his stock significantly (and likely increasing the chance of worse injuries) which is perfectly consistent with the idea that he was harming his leverage in any contract negotiation. If, as I supposed, this information was leaked from Cam's agent or at his behest it is a sign that they believe he is ready to play in a manner that will increase his leverage in any future contract negotiation. In other words, the Panthers are the beneficiary of "good Cam" rather than immobile, hobbled, and injured Cam. Only time will tell the reality of the situation. I fail to see anything dumb in either my post or supposition. It is not even controversial. If anything, it borders on self- evident.
  8. Here is how it can be positive: Very early on in this process I had heard references in early articles that Cam's camp would be in favor of Cam shutting it down unless REALLY healthy given his contract status. If this is coming from his camp, it means that they believe he is healthy enough to have a season that will benefit him in a future contract negotiation; whereas, his play while injured was having the opposite effect.
  9. The most interesting thing about this is that it begs the question of who the source of Shefter's report was. It must have come from Cam's camp. I think that would be a good sign unless it points to conflict between the two camps.
  10. While I understand that a team can only beat the teams you play, that 49ers record may be a bit of a mirage. I will say that their defense appears to be for real albeit against subpar teams. However, the team's that the 49ers have beaten are the Bucs, Bengals, Steelers (with Rudolph at QB), Browns, and Rams. Between the 5 teams, they have 7 wins. On top of that, they play a 1 win Redskins team next week. We will have two week to prepare for our match-up with them. I have seen GB play twice and while their defense seems greatly improved, their offense was not impressive in either game I watched. Hopefully, the weather cooperates for us.
  11. At this point, the worries would primarily relate to his physical condition. He has reached the point given recent history that a "prove it to me" mentality is likely to prevail.
  12. That 40 could be a quick (with a marker) 80. If so, that would be Dwayne Jarrett. The 15 might be 43 where part of the 4 is missing and the 5 is a 3. This would make it Chris Harris.
