  1. I think he will be done, but he obviously can still play
  2. Williams is getting beat like a drum. Paradis is getting bull rushed bad Moton is not even great
  3. Cam gets contacted in the helmet. No call... rinse and repeat Doesn't excuse horrible Oline play but it's ridiculous
  4. Zero rhythm... its really amazing we came so close last week. Nothing like last year at all
  5. I'm tired of this bull... we've been screwed by 3 plays already in 5 quarters... how even with 2 cameras do you not get that spot right
  6. Olsen was WIDE open on a post route Sunday and he missed him. Watching it live there was no one else close to him. And it was 20+ yards down the field. I don't understand what some of y'all are so quick to call him washed up. He stills knows how to get open. He isnt going and doesn't need to be the focal point of this offense like 2015, but he is still a valuable part of the team as a TE.
  7. Says who, ESPN? I have seen multiple times where their precious "QBR," which again they won't explain how it's calculated, gave high marks to QB's who obviously didn't play well and vice-versa. The metrics for standard QB ratings aren't exact, but at least their formula is transparent, so in my book it has WAY more validity than anything ESPN spews out. I honestly didn't know what RTG stood for until I looked it up, and again, it's ESPN propaganda. I hate ESPN, but I also don't like any statistic that someone tries to present as objective fact when they won't share with you the underlying methodology of their data. That type of nonsense is the basis for the statement: "There are 3 levels of dishonesty in increasing order... lies, damn lies, and statistics." Cam played like a mediocre QB yesterday, as did Goff. That's what my eyeballs tell me after watching years of football. Cam made some plays, didn't suck, but he also couldn't be the difference maker when we needed him to be. Again, this is not a personal knock. This to me is just a microcosm of society. We are presented information as fact when it is really statistics that people will not explain b/c it supports whatever narrative they want. Honestly, we have no idea if the methodology is even applied the same way to every QB... that still doesn't stop them from presenting it as absolute truth to the masses. The people touting it are on the payroll, so it must be true, right? ESPN is truly "fake news" in the sports world. And that has absolutely nothing to do with any political persuasion in either direction.
  8. The only other non-QB offensive player who has ever had that kind of impact in a game that CMC did yesterday (for the Panthers) was Steve Smith. On a field with a lot of offensive stars threats on both sides, CMC was the best overall player out there, and the best RB and WR for either team.
  9. Not signing him before the season may look worse as the season progresses. He has looked solid at times over the past 2 years, but he looked like a Pro-Bowler yesterday
  10. This is a guess, but I'm guessing almost every single one that can does when it's that hot. It makes too much sense from a business standpoint. I'm certain the concessions were way down yesterday. I can't speak for all the people that went inside to the concourse, but the fans in the stands were not consuming alcohol and/or food like they normally would. At this point, a lot of teams in the South (Dallas, Arizona, New Orleans, Houston, & Atlanta have either domes or retractable roofs. The Florida teams are an exception (Tampa, Miami, & Jacksonville), but Miami does have a canopy now. I'm 100% sure any new stadium built in Florida would be a dome or retractable roof. It's also a necessity (unless you're NY) to have one to get a Super Bowl. As much as I hate the idea of closing the roof every time there could potentially be bad weather (and I hope the team wouldn't unless the weather was extreme as yesterday), there are only 8 home games a year. Losing the home-field advantage for even one of them b/c fans are trying to prevent heat stroke sucks. And again, that's not exaggerating. Yesterday wasn't fans being fairweather. Going to a NFL game is expensive. Home openers are exciting and people have had 8 months to get amped for them. People don't leave the stands in a competitive game like that in droves if there's not a good reason.
  11. I don't get on this board to argue with people. I believe you if you say you were there, and if you were on the visitor's side and stayed out there the whole time, you're obviously a hardcore and dedicated fan. I'm not questioning that. I drank tons of water before & during the game, and I still was exhausted by the end and I stayed out there the whole time. I was also there 2 hours early for to hold the flag, so I was there for over 5 hours. I'm sure I didn't get enough water b/c it's practically impossible to drink that kind of liquid without going up and down the whole time and I wasn't going to spend $50 on water. Regardless, I'm not going to blame anyone who left. I'm 37, and I was at my limit at my age even with some preparations regarding hydration. It still was miserable for anyone, and it was dangerous for kids, elderly people, and anyone with health conditions. If you think even after that after sitting in that brutal heat, a canopy or retractable roof isn't necessary, that's your opinion. I respectfully disagree, and I think the team and fans would be better suited going forward to make some sort of preparation for weather like that yesterday. I want BOA to be the best environment and have the best home-field advantage possible. I love outside football 95+% of the time. We don't live up North where we would ever find ourselves in a situation like the Vikings where there could be a game in dangerously low temperatures, but we have found ourselves in a situation in 2 out the last 3 home openers where the heat made it dangerous for fans and impossible to have a home-field advantage. I'm certainly not a climate-change denier, but that is besides the point. It's in no-one's best interest not to have a better solution come next September if we're in a similar situation. I have been at BOA when it has been electric and absolutely rocking, even in inclement weather. The 2011 monsoon game, the 2013 Saints game in the cold rain, and 2015 Colts game in the rain were awesome. I also enjoy the occasional cold game at BOA. That is football- played in the elements, but not dangerous to people's health. Yesterday was not good for the business side of the team (it was simply too hot to consume alcohol safely or eat IMO, it's awful for fan enjoyment, and it doesn't provide the players the home-field advantage they deserve.
  12. The ball certainly didn't bounce our way yesterday. To lose a fumble, have a tipped ball called a lateral/fumble on a questionable call, both of which the Rams recovered, and then watch them fumble the ball 3 times and recover (along with a BS call on a 4th fumble that we did recover)... statistically it's unbelievable how bad our luck was on that. I've watched the Panthers religiously since 2002 and I can't remember a game where we were so unlucky with fumbles and/or calls. It really is what a data person would call a "statistical anomaly." Regardless, I hope we never have to experience it again. I hope they ban anyone with the last name Hochuli from ever reffing another Panthers game. Hopefully the odds even out over the season. I don't think it's possible for them to be any worse than yesterday for another 25 years.

  14. This is a fair and balanced way to say it. Cam was just as responsible for the defeat as anyone. And b/c he's the QB, he's going to get more blame than anyone when we lose. That's part of the gig. I'm not ready to give up on Cam. I definitely feel like he was frustrated with the headset issue and the miscues by the offensive line and Moore in the first half. I'm not the coach, but I don't think Moore was in the right spot on the lateral fumble (and/or the ball was tipped). Regardless, I think it should have been incomplete but we certainly didn't get 2 crucial calls yesterday to go our way. The bottom line is, to have a great season, you got to win these close games. The good teams find a way. We did in 2013, 2015 and 2017. The NFL is ultra-competitive. We need Cam to be that difference maker. We was in 2015 and in years past. He wasn't yesterday. I love Cam. He came into a moribund franchise in 2011 and instantly made the Panthers exciting and relevant. He has taken us to a Super Bowl. I want nothing less than for him to succeed. And Rivera too for what it's worth. But I'm also realistic enough to know that this year is the litmus test for both these guys for next year and beyond. Thursday night is huge. We need Cam to be a difference maker. We need a win. Being 0-2 five days into such a crucial season will be demoralizing to the fanbase, and disastrous to a team (especially coach & QB) that needs to show they going in the right direction.
  15. Nobody but ESPN gives a flying fug about QBR... it is a marketing thing for them. What in the hell is raw QBR vs. total QBR??? The fact that it's based upon a "proprietary" system means it's BS. In what other universe are good statistics not evaluated for the underlying data used to compile them?? It's utterly pointless, and I loath every time someone mentions "QBR." Anyway, that's not a knock on you, but I have no use for anything ESPN-related at this point, and QBR is as bad as anything else that network has fabricated in recent years. Cam wasn't great, but I was at the game. He played just as well as Goff. They were both rusty. Both missed big pass plays.
