  1. You type a lot of words like you know what you're talking about, but you have a pretty poor grasp on what's going on. That whole post was just a garbled mess of paranoid delusion. But then again, this is the same guy that puts his own exaggerated spin on every piece of rival news that ever hits the net, so I guess you've had a lot of practice.
  2. Danight sounding like something out of a fortune cookie
  3. Lol posts about RC are getting deleted now?
  4. Welp, I guess it was Monoxide that deleted it. Just made a new thread and that **** got the axe in under a minute.
  5. Yeah, 350 will more than likely take care of it whenever he sees who you are.
  6. Kelvin stopped himself more than Trufant did. Fool had like 5 or 6 bad drops in those games alone. Still had 100+ yards and a TD in the first game with Tru on him all day If Kelvin can even halfway fix the drop problems he'll be a bad mamba jamba. Dude left like 600 yards and at least 5 TDs on the field last year.
  7. But for the OP, nah, that's not bad. It's pretty much what the NBA aims for with the way they market the players and teams are an afterthought. Superstar players have all the power and leverage in the NBA. The rare players of LeBron's caliber are pretty much the ******* co-GM/coach of their teams. Especially with the way LeBron has his contract set up. He knows and the Cavs know they have to keep him satisfied or he can leave at any time. Cleveland ****** around and ****** around that first LeBron stint and kept surrounding him with garbage during many of his prime years... they know better than to waste anymore of his career and sell out for a championship at all costs. It's just the nature of the NBA nowadays. I'm fans of certain players, and as an extent I would like to see their team do well. But when that player leaves, I couldn't care less about that team anymore. I go to wherever that player went... rinse, repeat. However, I'm a Charlotte fan first and foremost. Doesn't matter what player I like... if they're playing the Hornets I want the Hornets to win.
  8. There's so much wrong with this post... First off, Kobe forced himself onto the Lakers when he was drafted... a team that was competitive even AFTER the showtime era, and was obviously on the upswing. They won over 50 games the year before getting Kobe and Shaq (which they got in the same year), along with the assets they got from the Hornets for that trade made them an instant contender and dynasty once Jordan decided to hang it up. Secondly, Kobe has one MVP. Not a "lotta" like you said. One. He has two Finals MVPs. ****, one of those arguably should be Gasol's Finals MVP. You know who was winning all those MVPs during the early 2000's dynasty era? Shaq, not Kobe. You know who was the whiny me-first selfish b*tch that broke up that Lakers' dynasty? Kobe. He couldn't stand the thought of being second fiddle... it didn't fit in with his second coming of Jordan (which he fell far short of) impersonation that he had planned out for his career. I mean, he already copied and pasted nearly all of the man's moves and tendencies. Thirdly, Odom, Artest, Gasol, and Bynum were not scrubs during those '09 '10 championship years. Artest was still one of the best defenders in the game and a 3PT threat, Odom was the best 6th man in the league for a while, prime Gasol was one of the best big men in the game and by far the most skilled, and a healthy and young Bynum was outright dominant at times. You say none of those guys did anything after they left the Lakers. What did Kobe do after they left him? What was he doing before they got there? I'll tell you: jacking up shots and missing the playoffs. What about when Kobe was trying to force a trade to Chicago when they were losing (before Gasol and the gang came to save him)? Much like how he forced himself onto the Lakers in the first place. You know who wasn't missing the playoffs, even with a garbage supporting cast? LeBron in his Cleveland years. ****, he even drug that 2007 Cavs team to the Finals which was absolute dog **** outside of LeBron, at 22 years old. You can't criticize LeBron when Kobe has done, and attempted to do the same thing... it's just not as highly publicized for whatever reason. LeBron > Kobe all time and it's not even that close anymore. Jordan is the GOAT. And fyi, Jordan did win the gold without Pippen. He only played on the Olympic squad twice. Once as a rookie (before anyone knew who Pippen was), once more in '92. He brought home the gold both times. This whole thing is just ******** and I hope you're just joking, or it reeeally makes me question your basketball knowledge. For f*ck's sake, Tim Duncan is better all time than Kobe as well. Kobe is a great player, don't get me wrong. HeII, I've actually always really liked Kobe... I'm just honest and not delusional about him like many of his stans are. Kobe is a great player, but he's also probably the most overrated great player in the history of great NBA players. I have a hard time justifying putting him in the top 10. IF he makes my top 10, then he just barely made the #10 spot. The fact that some people legitimately try to make arguments for him being the GOAT is a joke. That'd be like someone trying to say Troy Aikman is the greatest football player of all time.
  9. No, we didn't actually. You're the Bucs. We kinda' expected it.
  10. You know, the bottomfeeder's opinions on the division crown might mean a tad bit more... if we hadn't snatched it away from and punked down both the other teams in contention for it to the tune of 75-13. Thank the Saints for that late garbage time touchdown in the last 2 minutes we allowed them to get for Brees and Payton's ego that it was 13 and not 6.
  11. Well the title of the article is 'Thomas Davis Confident Carolina is class of NFC South' Here's your facts: Thomas Davis is a badazz
  12. Now We Know Why The WNBA Doesn’t Have Cheerleaders Well, these type of stories don’t come along every day. As we’re sure most of you have heard by now, two Carolina Panthers cheerleaders were arrested in Tampa early Sunday morning after, police say, the two of them were getting them some Sheryl Swoopes in the bathroom. That itself isn’t illegal (thank God!); punching a woman who was complaining about the wait outside the bathroom is. So far, the cheerleaders are saying it’s a case of mistaken identity, which, if true, freaking sucks. But, if police reports are to be believed, we’re dealing with Renee and Angela. Not surprisingly, it’s darned-near impossible to get on their official Panthers bio pages right now — though we think it’s worth the wait — but Panthers officials emphasize that they made the trip to Tampa on their own; the team does not have cheerleaders for road games. We could go on and on about this, and rest assured, we will. But for now, we’re just going to reemphasize that two Carolina Panthers cheerleaders were allegedly having sex with each other in the bathroom of a Florida bar. We totally went to the wrong bars this weekend.
  13. I think 2 or 3 of ours were cheerleaders lol
  14. I've said it for a whilenow... I'd take Dez over Julio. Wouldn't be disappointed in either.
  15. Yeah, that's another one I have problems with and just forgot to mention... he's gotten better at it gradually from season-to-season, but still definitely one of the areas he needs to improve on. Even Jason Avant, who is largely known for his hands, was dropping perfectly placed balls from Cam (though that also goes both ways... WR's at this level should catch balls that hit them between the numbers). Honestly, when Cam gets a clean pocket, with time to go through his reads and step up into the pocket, he's a pretty good pocket QB. Just sometimes after he gets pressured a bit his mechanics start to go to sh*t and he'll start fading away and throwing rockets off his back foot that go way high. It's sort of like a snowball effect, and he has trouble getting settled back down at times it seems. A culmination of all those things is his biggest problem. His touch is still well below-average. Though, that arm strength is an advantage at times as well, so it's a bit of a double-edged sword. I don't know if he'll ever fully fix it... a lot of guys with that level of arm strength seldom do since they're able to solely rely on it to do things other QB's can't... but if he does learn when to loft it and when to laser it, combined with his running ability he'll be pretty d*mn hard to stop. He sort of teased us at the beginning of the season (before he started running and was confined in the pocket due to the ankle and ribs) by showing progress in this area. Once he started running again, and the offensive line started to fall apart his mechanics just completely went to sh*t for a stretch there. I still cut him some slack because he's essentially been learning the QB position on the fly while in the NFL. He's not like 95% of other QBs that come in somewhat polished and start right after being drafted. He only had one year of experience (in a gimmick spread offense at that) starting in the NCAA. He'd never even taken a snap from under center until we drafted him. He was touted by everyone as being basically the rawest 1st round QB prospect ever, and we seem to forget that due to how quick he hit the ground running his rookie year. The only reason he was even considered a 1st round talent was the ridiculous upside and potential. He's gradually getting better at the intricacies of the position every year. Will he ever reach his full potential? Maybe. Maybe not.
  16. Exactly. They were just itching to get in a "lol Cam sucks... of course he's good against the blitz, he's a running back" diss in so bad they didn't even realize what they were talking about. If Cam is, and has been every year, one of the best QBs in the league against the blitz... then why do the other "running QBs" struggle against it? I'll give you the answer: Cam is the only one out of those I mentioned that actually runs a pro-style offense where he goes through all of his reads (if he has time) and back to his first if needed. He reads the defense before the snap and changes the play based on what he sees. He's not being told where to go with the ball every play like RG3 year 1, and Kaepernick his whole career, and he doesn't run a backyard football offense like Wilson where he hands it off to a beast running back, which opens up huge plays where he and his receivers run play action roll out scramble drills for huge plays downfield. Our offense is a pro offense with read option sprinkled in. It's not a gimmick like the others. Cam definitely has his flaws (overthrowing and throwing off his back foot being huge ones), but he actually plays QB - including the mental part, despite what people around here have led themselves to believe by repeating it over and over. The only other mobile QBs higher than Cam are Luck and Rodgers... and they both also obviously run pro style offenses.
  17. I'm not an OBJ fanboy by any stretch of the imagination, and I think that catch was overrated as all heII, but the dude is legit. Screw his catch, it's what he did in his other dozens of plays that makes him special. If he keeps doing what he was doing last year then he's already one of the best receivers in the league. If he improves like all receivers usually do? Lol, well... Eli is about to have a very nice end to his career.
  18. Sooo, you're basing almost all of your opinions of him according what a few dipsh*t draft analysts said about him before the draft? The same analysts who are proven wrong again, and again, and again, and again... year after year, after year, after year? Because, no offense, a lot of what you said in your OP was complete bologna. I saw OBJ do all those things (aside from blocking, didn't really pay attention to that) that you just said he couldn't by actually watching him. He cuts on a dime, runs extremely crisp routes, makes tough catches that required focus, makes the easy wide open catches, makes the catches with corners being "physical" and all up on him, and completely separates from defenders once he got a step on them... which he does very often. Those same draftniks said Steve Smith would be nothing but a punt returner in the NFL, questioned his size, doubted his strength, and criticized his top end speed. Yeah, the same Steve Smith who was one of - if not the fastest player in the NFL in his prime, that routinely tossed around and out muscled players twice his size, and won the triple crown of receiving - not punt returning. The only people who are really equipped to judge a player coming out of college are the actual organizations who are investing inordinate amounts of resources and time into scouting those players and every detail of their lives to see if they're a fit for their team. You know, the actual professionals who are in NFL front offices, and not writing his opinion on CBSsports as a part time job after watching a couple of games - if that. We were actually very interested in OBJ in the outside chance that he somehow fell to our pick... and Gettleman had him rated as by far the best route runner in the draft, as did the Giants. Nolan Nawrocki is one of the most stubborn, opinionated, and sorry excuses of a draftnik out there. He probably saw one play and made his mind up about OBJ's route-running. Even after all that actual scouting and research, those NFL front offices are still wrong quite regularly... so what does that say about Joe Blow's opinion on "insert NFL article here"? It's not meant to be etched in stone. All of that pre draft noise is just that. Noise. It's meant for clicks, ratings, and entertainment for us common folk. People like to hear other people's opinions.
  19. Pretty fast on my laptop. I don't know what the deal is with people not being able to log in... I've been able to every time. That's a pretty big problem, but like I said stuff like that is to be expected after such an immediate big change. If those problems persist for a while, then yeah... it becomes a pretty big and stupid problem. I'll cut him slack right now. It's pretty much just an open beta test.
  20. Well of course there's going to be a few bugs and **** when you have a complete overhaul like that. He's literally just changed it. If people are still having problems a month from now, then yeah, it's a problem. I like the new interface, and it's a lot quicker, sleeker, and smoother than the previous one... which was pretty much the same one AFMB uses. I haven't had a bit of problems with it so far.
  21. Yeah, he's the best QB in the league, and has been for a while. What about him? So are we arguing semantics now? That's why I said "highly" mobile QBs... the ones that Cam is usually grouped with: Wilson, Kaepernick, and RG3. Rodgers is very mobile, but not to the same extent those guys are.
  22. Didn't realize you used your legs to call an audible.
  23. And then you realize that every other highly mobile QB in the league (Wilson, Kaepernick, RG3) graded out negatively against the blitz.
