Rumor: Hill to Start over Wintson Week 1

No way - Winston is the starter and this is gamesmanship 

I kind of agree. But.....Payton has done some pretty irrational things for Hill so far. 

I genuinely hope he thinks Hill is the guy. I would live to see him tank the Saints for a couple of seasons because of pure hubris.

Hill is simply a better QB than Winston. Winston is no more a backup at this point.

Just the idea of this statement is completely laughable. Hill is not even an NFL caliber QB. He is a poor man's The Golden Calf of Bristol.

And yet he started over Winston last year and is starting over him this year. So what does that exactly say about Winston if this is true?

I wanted Winston over teddy 2 gloves, 10 out of 10 given winston's salary was 1 million. Even with that 30 for 30 season, winstons put up better numbers in the same time over the gringer cringer. 

This exactly!

Not only the amazing price for a former 1st overall pick, but I think he would have been pretty exciting here. Though, I could see him being equally frustrating.

I think of Jamis and Teddy as pretty much Bizarros of each other (though neither is super) in some aspects. Where as Teddy checkdown would have been chicken and lost us 4th quarter games, Jamis would have been too aggressive and made dumb mistakes and lost of 4th quarter games.

I think the outcome would have been similiar, and much MUCH cheaper.

youre right both have flaws, but winston has much more talent. off-field stuff aside- its loads and heavy heavy for winston..... on the field hes still got a top tier arm. I believe he can improve with the mental part, hes not a lost cause. The main part was money, 1 million plus more talent OR 30 (ended up being) million and less skills. Like you said, if rhule/crew didnt work well together (for whatever reasons) hes a FA. If hes a MVP QB........tag him. Again panthers made an awful choice and EVERYONE including rhule/herniay/brady/cooper/tepper/etc were wrong about teddy. Imagine having 29 million more in cap space to roll over to this super lean year, just one player too. ugh its so tiresome...

    • Because I’ve followed the Panthers for 26 years. 28 if you count the announcement in Charlotte. I owned PSLs for 18 of those years. I have forgotten more Panthers football than you will ever learn. And I’m analyzing this game with a clear brain, not like a 13 year old whose on his 2nd season and likely a bandwagon fan of one or two players.   The Panthers may win, who knows but from a logical stand point it doesn’t look that way, and I’m not going to trick myself into some Cinderella story daydream some fantasy outcome because I want them to win.
    • Yeah that's more my impression as well.  I think there could be some niche rivalries pertaining to specific things (like football as you mentioned, or BBQ as someone else did) but I've never felt there was this overall negative sentiment towards NC as a whole.

Here is Person's take on it (pay wall)  https://theathletic.com/2828732/2021/09/15/person-what-happened-to-the-keep-pounding-chant-for-the-panthers-in-week-1-and-will-it-return/ <snippet> There are a few things in Charlotte that should not be messed with: craft breweries, Bojangles and bankers’ hours. As for the local football team, at least two things are generally considered sacred — natural grass and anything related to Sam Mills. And in the space of a few months, the Panthers have botched both of them. On the same day the Panthers played their first regular-season game on artificial turf at Bank of America Stadium, they ditched the coordinated “Keep Pounding” pre-game chant that both fired up the home crowd and paid homage to Mills, the franchise’s only player to have his number (51) retired. It’s unclear whether it was an oversight by the team’s entertainment division or the Panthers simply decided to do away with what’s become a popular part of the game-day experience. As of Wednesday afternoon, team officials were mum on what happened before Sunday’s opener against the Jets. Update: A Panthers spokesman said the goal is to have the “Keep Pounding” chant evolve to the point where fans don’t need any prompting to start it. The team plans to coordinate the chant for this week’s game against the Saints, but won’t necessarily do so for every home game.
