  1. What's really funny is you believing that a contracted employee being paid millions of dollars can ignore any and all medical advice and recommendations from their employer and still collect every dollar of the contract that they signed. In your example, a quarterback could get a cut on his hand, ignore all advice to seek medical attention for that cut, watch the wound get infected and sepsis set it, and eventually see the hand amputated so that he can no longer throw a football and, in your little world, there's nothing the team can do about it. Again, remaining in good health and taking the steps needed to maintain that good health are CONTRACTUAL for every player. Intentional disregard for that state of health are valid reasons to deny bonuses and, if bad enough, terminate a contract and no longer pay guaranteed money.
  2. Bullpoo. A guy who is under contract for multi-millions of dollars whose health is vital to the success of an organization? If such a person refuses to get procedures done (especially non-invasive procedures) that the organization has determined are critically needed, those persons can have their contracts revised (canceled bonuses) or terminated. That's like saying a record company who signs a singer who gets his throat damaged "can't force a guy" to get checked out so that he can sing in the future so that the company can earn their money back. I mean, yeah, you can't pick up a guy physically and cuff him and cram him into the machine to get him checked out, but there are plenty of other non-physical measures they can take. But, from all appearances, they haven't. That, in and of itself, should tell you a lot.
  3. The Panther's organization sure does show lots of obvious concern about their QB's health. Just ask Ron "I would have taken a shot too" Rivera.

    Thanks Ron.
  5. When I give up the Panthers, I'll be giving up on the NFL in total.

    So we're going to wait a year so that we can trade one mediocre coach that got himself fired for another mediocre coach that got himself fired? Yay?

    What "great" options are going to be available next year? Because, I assure you, none of Bill Belichick, Doug Pederson, Sean McVay, Sean Payton, Andy Reid, Frank Reich, Pete Carroll, Anthony Lynn, or Matt Nagy are gonna be available.

    If you don't count the last 8 years maybe. The only damn thing that's "evolved" under Ron Rivera is the offense seemed just a *tad* improved under Turner with a healthy Cam than under Shula with a healthy Cam. But the overall offensive PHILOSOPHY didn't "evolve" even a little bit, it was still Rivera's "I would rather run the ball and run the clock than score" offensive philosophy, just under a different coordinator. So Ron is going to "evolve" AGAIN, is he? Like he said he was going to do many times before?

    Words mean nothing to me. And before somebody jumps on the "hypocrite" bandwagon, I definitely was *NOT* one of the people jumping up and down demanding that Tepper/Hurney/Rivera "say something" as an end-of-year summary. Because I don't care what they SAY only what they DO. Words are just as often used to obfuscate as they are to clarify. And Tepper DID choose to leave his team in the hands of the Hurney/Rivera "brain" trust for another year. That's the only action I need to know. My judgement as to the wisdom of that act is well known by now.
  10. Especially considering the fact that Luck, against KC this weekend, got strip-sacked by a player who isn't near as good as Von Miller (i.e. Dee Ford).
  11. I agree with your sentiment but there are certain picks in the past that just *scream* "RON RIVERA!" and, considering Ron's long-time love affair with Amini, I think this is one of them. If memory serves, I remember Ron, post-2013 draft, also slobbering all over Edmund Kugbila like he had found a long, lost child.
  12. Looked more like cracked hands to me.

    Defense wins championships...

    For 2 primary reasons: (1) Better offensive lines, and (2) Their offense's primary focus isn't "establishing the run". Its MOVING THE BALL and SCORING, whereas Ron "Dinosaur" Rivera believes "establishing the run" and "controlling the clock" should be the two primary focuses of his offense. One of the primary reasons the three offenses you quote above are so successful running the ball is because the opposing team's HC/DC knows that they will not hesitate to throw the ball on any down or distance. You can always predict the Carolina "SAVE ME CAM!" 3rd and long pass of Rivera offenses after he has run it for short gains on 1st and 2nd down.

    If I grant your premise, I guarantee the NFL would change the rules to advantage the offense and disadvantage the defense yet again. Because that sells tickets. And gets higher TV ratings. Some of y'all will just never learn. "RUN DE BALLZ AND PLAY DAT DEFENTS EVEN IF DA NFL GONNA MAKE SHUR DAIR REFZ FLY DE FLAGZ WHEN DAT HAPPENZ!"

    My fingers have gone hoarse over the years from trying to convince the Ron Fluffers this. It still hasn't worked to this day.
  16. If, as expected, the Panther's flush down the toilet bowl in 2019, I'm going all-in on keeping Ron for that last year. Why? Because all these Rivera fluffers in this forum that can't stop fondling the man's smaller-than-average testicles (as proven by his repeated lack of testosterone while making calls as the head coach) will FINALLY start calling for his head, and FUG them.
  17. How many "last chances" has Ron Milquetoast "I would have taken a shot too!" Rivera survived in 8 years, I wonder? Way too many for the good of this damn franchise, I know that.

    Saints probably going to another Super Bowl with a good chance of winning it. David Tepper gives votes of absolute confidence to Marty Hurney and Ron Rivera.

    Tayson Hill gets more undeserved admiring tongue-baths from the football media than Cam Newton can ever hope for.
  20. I’m willing to believe this but I certainly have yet to see evidence of it. The converse, in fact. The NFL’s history is full of owners who are/were “smart” businessmen but are/were utter failures as football-men.
  21. Well, in my boy CAP's defense, he was just as effective sitting on the bench doing nothing while CMC got 99.99% of the carries as CJ was.
