Mr. Scot

Where do you NOT want to see Thomas Davis go?

Recommended Posts

Is anyone really afraid of TD at this point in this career . . . especially TD without having Luke at his side?  My prediction is TD will be below average at this point without Luke or that type of linebacker at his side.

He won't go to a division rival. He left the team on good terms and I can't see him doing that. 

All about the benjamin's at this point.  PED58 is going to sign with the highest bidder, period.  (or the Patriots if they offer)

Honestly, no.

But it will still suck to see him wearing another uniform.

I’m not afraid of anybody.

But let’s not pretend that the following facts don’t apply:

1. He’s still an effective WLB. 

2. He’ll want to prove his old team wrong.

3. Good chance he’ll end up in the division.

Depends on if he wants to go into the booth, into coaching, or walk from the game entirely.

Go into the booth?  LA Chargers, Giants, Jets...possibly cowboys.

Coaching?  Probably stay in the division I would assume.

Walk?  Probably Ravens or ATL.

I have a friend who's a Rams fan that hopes they pick him up.

I hope he succeeds next year. In any city. He’s a great man, courageous player, and deserving of a championship.

I really hope he goes to the Falcons and kicks our ass the next two seasons. Riveras firing would be just another humanitarian thing Davis has done for us.

The Falcons would be the worst possible landing spot. I hope he knows he'd take a popularity hit for going there with the fanbase here, and hope he cares to be involved with the Panthers after retirement enough to not do that.

 

Don't think it's fair to be upset with him no matter where he signs. He practically begged the Panthers to sign him and they didn't even bother to offer him a backup level contract. I'd have no hard feelings and wish him the best. Atlanta makes a lot of sense for the reasons others have mentioned. I suspect he'll go wherever he gets an offer that gives him both a legitimate shot at playing time and a super bowl. And I think we owe it to him not to be upset even if that's a division rival.

At some point all the planning and intentions he signaled need to be taken into account. He said last year was his final one, the team started prepping for it; then he earned a suspension and didn't want to end on a year like that. Not the Panthers fault. I'd rather he stayed myself but at the same time his situation changed; not the Panthers. I wish him nothing but success next year but I'm just asking him to keep looking at the big picture. I want him at alumni days. I want him in the community. I want him to be the most popular and engaged retired Panther ever. One year as a Falcon and he will take some kind of hit. One year as a Charger or Bill or whatever, no one will care. Think Farve as a Viking vs a Jet.

    • There was no sex trafficking going on...100% fake news. Who are you saying makes these "women think this is the only thing they can do"?  You do realize the place was run by some middle aged women, right? Do you care about "the truth"?  Doesn't appear to be the case... https://nypost.com/2019/04/12/prosecutors-concede-no-human-trafficking-in-kraft-spa-case/  
    • Where to begin.... So I like that we picked up with Jon clearly having killing Dany on his mind from the beginning of the episode until he finally did it. I love that tortured look of knowing what must be done because it is right and utterly refusing to accept it until the moment it is done because of his love for her. Great acting sold all of that well. The first half was super tense because of it. Also the visual of the throne being melted and what that represented for the entirety of the series. Just a great scene. Then we move along to the time jump (which we know is a few weeks thanks to Tyrion's monologue). I liked that whole scene as well...what I DIDN'T like was treating Jon the way they did. The Unsullied basically strong-armed them into exiling the actual hero of Westeros. He legitimately saved almost every major character and/or their people at some point in this show and certainly saved the entirety of the North by killing Dany. And to top that off, he's a better person than pretty much anybody at this point. And for his trouble, he gets exiled. Now, because he is a good man, he is exiled to go be with people who also love and adore and follow him. So while it is BS, at least it's not a true punishment beyond his choice in the matter being taken. I mean, he did CHOOSE to go to The Wall the first time around to prove himself. But dammit, he should be praised the land over for what he did. Everybody would be bending the knee to a genocidal maniac or be slaughtered by a genocidal maniac were it not for him. Everybody's roles in the new Six Kingdoms, sure. It is fitting. Sure, Bran becoming king is a tad unexpected. But the way he acted about Tyrion proposing it ("why do you think I came all this way?"). I mean, WHAT?! At no point did you ever suggest that the throne was your endgame but suddenly, once Jon kills Dany, you're all about being the king? The ending montage was cool. Sansa going from scared little bird to the Queen in the North is awesome. Arya doing her own thing under the Stark banner is cool (goes from feeling like she'll never fit into her family because she didn't want to be a lady, to renouncing her name to become a Faceless woMan, to reclaiming her name and finding her place within the family, just a great character arc). Jon being treated as basically the king of the Wildlings is awesome. Do wish we knew how much time had passed that they could rebuild the castle in King's Landing so quickly. Or repair Winterfell such that the great hall was so pristine. Or know if they fixed the gap in the Wall that the Night King came through or if they leave it as there are no longer any White Walkers and no threat North of the wall that we know of. I guess I am satisfied in the ending....but it left a bad taste in my mouth about Jon. I felt for him because it's almost a cautionary tale of what happens to good men who remain good. They end up eventually punished for doing the right thing.
