    Our defense is aggressive. McDaniels is going to call so many screens on Sunday.


    The thing is, we don't blitz that often. Screens are not as effective against a standare 4 man rush. That, and we run to the ball well. But then again, who knows? They do screen a lot as it is. So it could go either way.

    hmmm.  Your word seems to be about as good as Matt Rhule's.  Thought you were done with me.  But here you are, mistaking a simplistic joke as me giving a poo about message board grammar. 


    I put an lol at the end. I guess that wasn't enough. Touchy are we?


    Not sure how you see your post as obvious humor? But hey. I am soooo sorry.

    I've been watching the NFL long enough now to know that good teams some times lose to bad teams, some times bad teams beat good teams, some times teams that win almost every regular season game lose in the playoffs, some times teams that are close to .500 go to the super bowl or win it.

    That's why we watch, it's unpredictable, it's fun, we have no control over what's going on. all the players ask us to do is cheer loudly while they throw their bodies at each other and try to give us a reason to get together and watch these games. I'll take as many as we can get, if that means a bonus game wild card weekend - sign me up!


    Bump, because it deserves it. We ALL started watching football because it was fun, and exciting. It was entertaining, and we soaked it up. 


    If this team were to flirt with the Playoffs this year, that would just make it that much more sweet. Year 2 of a rebuild, and we are hunting Playoff positions. Cool beans bro.

    Even factoring all that in giving up points is a team statistic.. that has to do with stopping the run rushing the passer and secondary. I'm just trying to debate I guess on the talent perspective. Talent wise I don't think we Hve ever fielded what 3-4 guys drafted first round(Jackson second). On paper these guys have the chops to run with anybody.


    On a purely talent base, this team is bonkers. With room to grow. Don't know why folks have to quantify everything?

    Sure the coaches see it, the owner sees it, the players see it and we the fans see.....opposing coaches and players see it too. We also see the coaches not doing anything about it on any level. So, what are we left to believe??? We can only assume this level of effort is deemed acceptable. And that is why fans are quickly loosing faith in Rhule and Tepper. 


    You do the best you can with what you've got. It's a rebuild. The Panthers chose to build D first. So the O has to suffer. NOW, if they don't build the O next. Then we can rabble rouse them unmercifully.

    Going for what? What situation are you crying about now?


    it was first and 10, if he slid it would have been 2nd and 3 at worst.




    This is your original post; "Lol no. Darnold not sliding got him hurt" You have to see what this implies? That Sam was dumb for not sliding. Hence my response. 


    If you would have said this post first? No harm no foul. Your hot take is what I responded to.


    Sam was trying to win a football game. And you want him to slide?

    I wonder if they script plays for the 3rd Q, like they d0 when the offense starts in the 1st Q? It seems a lot of teams might...I'm not sure if our coaches are that quick-witted to plan those out well to start the 3rd. You have to have a couple ready I'd think though based on what you've seen so far from the opposing D.


    I would have to say that with the struggles we are experiencing coming out of the half. We should be scripting plays. Whether they are or not? Who knows?

    Forgot to address this….I was a moderator for several years on my friends USC forum.  No word filters, no premium, open to any opposing fans from all the conferences.  There are no good manners on forums, but we also don’t self proclaim we’re any different.  clowns have boo’d our own players, screamed disparaging remarks about bad play.  My boards right now are no fun.

    But there are limits, and those limits are concerning injury or mocking an injured player, on any team.  My season tickets were also in the rowdiest part of the stadium, lining the tunnel both teams must run out of, as you can imagine, the treatment and words directed at the opposing teams were not welcoming in the least (to state very mildly), but injury, rather it was an opposing player, much less your own?  Classless.  You stand with respect.


    Fans are going to fan. Always have, always will. But calling one of your own teams players "Expendable"? That's a different level of fandom.

    I bet that dude gets his day ruined by this board all the time. It is absolutely hilarious. 


    And it's Mr. "He's expendable" to save the day. I must be doing something right to have this many fans. So this is how Celebrates' feel?

    Either way Brady is not the long term solution, whether he gets the boot or he takes the LSU job. He got two paid years to learn on the job and we get to start from scratch on OC again. Doesn't make much sense for a "rebuild"


    How do we know Brady is going to leave? Maybe he likes where he's at?

    Cam also matured while in the league with regards to losses in general.  I didn't love the lack of maturity he showed at times, but he was a very young man at the time, and it is better than the alternative of not caring...

    That said, can you explain the second sentence?  Darnold may not be as emotional as Cam but he certainly seems to get fired up, and I have no evidence he doesn't care about winning... It "feels" like Darnold shows more fire than Teddy did but that may not be accurate either (just in terms of getting excited after big plays etc)


    It's a catch 22 kinda thing. Fans want their QB to be even keeled. Except when they want them to get fired up.

    Our most effective play in the red zone this year seems to have been the Sam Darnold, "fug it, nobody is open I'm just gonna run it in myself" play. In other words, NOT doing the play Brady has called.

    Let that marinate for a bit.

    Sam Darnold got five touchdowns in four weeks this way. Seems that Teddy had to forget the play and just run it in a few times himself, too last year.

    Our OC just isn't ready for prime time. He may have saved his job with the team getting a win last week. 


    Come on man. You can't give yourself credit. For a scenario you yourself invented. Or maybe you can. Who knows with this joint.


    Edit to clarify; We as fans have no idea what plays are being called. We may guess when it looks like an audible. But the actual plays. That's just guesswork on our part.

  13. What is often forgotten is; these guys are human beings. With families, and hopes and dreams. Yet far too many fans treat them like possessions. Chew them up, and spit them out. With no regards to the player


    Expendable, coward, and dumb are words I have read in just the last 2 days. After a win. 


    And back to our regularly scheduled show. Complaining? Does it actually do a body good?

    Actually when I suggested the defender be penalized for leading with the helmet on that play you attacked me. Who is really moving the goal posts here? You aren't making much sense.


    Damm dude, someone questions your thought process and you get all up in the feels. And once again you have moved the goalpost.


    You're a trip. You act all high and mighty, then get so defensive when questioned. No wonder you are perfectly alright with calling Sam expendable. You never have to defend your stance.
