  1. Hope to win at least the franchise‘s first Super Bowl by then.
  2. We give them a lot of flack as fans but at the end of the day, they're human beings doing the best that they can. I appreciate these "fluff" pieces because it definitely humanizes our gladiators.
  3. Not reading 9 pages of stuff but I’m old enough to remember the hornets wanting a new stadium but the city saying no, so the team left and became the penguins. maybe tepper will do the same. Move the team, rename it, then we can get a new owner here to redo the Panthers.
  4. In Bryce's defense there were a few TDs that were drops, and a few where the team could've put him into position to score a TD but ran out the clock instead. but yeah, he could've done more for sure.
  5. Blame Purdy (he's what Darnold could be if he had his potential unlocked; good but not HoF bound like 49er fans are already making him out to be) and the S2 for hyping up BY9. I didn't see anything special in his game in college that would warrant him being the #1 overall pick. That's just how I see Bama QBs are built. The team consists of dawgs around a non-dawg QB. I believe Dave and Dan see this and is looking to replicate the "formula."
  6. This, and I believe CMC basically hinted at wanting to leave during interviews leading up to his trade. After the trade he went on to say that he didn't want to be traded. So yeah, screw him.
  7. yeah, the only thing Bryce proved to me last season was his resiliency and durability.
  8. because he got that dawg in him. the QB that went #1 doesn't.
  9. Just hope it’s in our lifetime.
  10. Somehow with this team, how they show up in the preseason is a huge indicator of how they’ll perform during the regular season.
  11. More excuses to explain why Bryce sucks if XL's unavailability becomes chronic.
  12. I don’t think he does either, but this was the year to get a QB (if only we had made the right selection). Not last year. I don’t even know who’s available in 2025.
  13. I dont need Caleb Williams to suck to feel better about the Bryce Young trade. I need Bryce Young to be elite to feel better about the Bryce Young trade.
  14. This is cool. I mean I'm sure they have the technology to implant chips in to footballs and onto the fields to measure spatially where the ball is. But then that'd take the fun and anger out of reacting to the ref's subjective opinions lol.
  15. Wasn’t my point. He’s already at his ceiling and there’s little room for growth if any. Still, I hope to be proven wrong.
  16. I don’t know how well this metaphor will land but I’ll try: Building an NFL player is like the 90s era import tuning where an owner purchases a Honda Civic with hopes of modifying it to take on faster cars (mustangs, Camaros, corvettes, etc.) the engine is rebuilt to handle forced induction, and the body is build to support the added power aerodynamically. The owner might even strip the interior down to reduce weight, or add weight to increase traction. The car is taken to the drag strip to take on the cars mentioned above where it may beat them in a race. However, the owner of that modified civic forgets that those cars can be further modified, whereas the civic is already maxed out. Bryce is that Honda civic.
  17. I live in Northern California and am considering making the trip down there for that game.
  18. we play patriots first. hide every starter and possible starter. they're gonna injure someone.
  19. He’s QB1 for my favorite team so I will hope that he proves me wrong and lights it up.
  20. Never drank the cool aid but this how I felt about last year: https://youtu.be/_ot-ezjaSRY?si=X9A2bGo0FhC5haYN
  21. "We went to our analytics guys, we went to player engagement, went to, like, the psychologist. You look for anything that you might miss just on tape and on evaluation. We have all these fact checks in place." You know, I'm something of a psychologist myself. Thanks for the article. What I take away from that article is that Tepper is 0-2 when it comes to making decisions with his stomach (Rhule, Young).
  22. fill me in on the reference here.
  23. For the record I've never been in support of picking Bryce. I just try to give credit when it's due.
