  1. Saints @ Panthers

    Last gasp hope for playoffs is done. For the love of god just sit Newton and fix his shoulder.
  2. Let's do this! Shoulder is better so I finally got off my lazy butt again. Started with pause squats at 225. Went better than expected after a ~year break. Got back on my diet and rolling BJJ more frequently, so hopefully the weight comes down soon. Trying to hit 190 then reassess. Was at 201 this morning.
  3. Rivera reportedly on the hot-seat

    Can we just get Newton on IR, get him shoulder surgery now, and call this season over?
  4. Captain Marvel (March 2019)

    I’m expecting that they make her roughly as powerful as in the comics, which is pretty frickin’ powerful.
  5. Greg Olson out for the year

    Outside of Smitty, by far the best 3rd round pick the Panthers ever spent.
  6. Rivera reportedly on the hot-seat

    Meh. It’d probably be fine. But I have the inescapable feeling of meh.
  7. Rivera reportedly on the hot-seat

    Yep. Was coming here to post that. Article said Rivera is handling defensive playcalling. Is that new or has he been for a while? Can’t remember.
  8. Rivera reportedly on the hot-seat

    The defense is frustrating, but a little understandable considering the DC turnover. Offense took far too long to make a change, but usually looks much better this year with Turner. Just frustrating all around. I like Rivera, but he’s solid at best. We could do worse for sure, but he’s kind of uninspiring at this point. Not sure if it’s coaching or GM yet.
  9. Panthers @ Buccaneers

    So, like, does anybody want to tell Newton that guy isn’t on his team?
  10. Week 12 GDT: Seahawks (5-5) @ Panthers (6-4)

    Keepin Funchess around is fine, as long as it’s as you said. Low end starter money tops. He’s not bad just not particularly good, aside drom being big. With Moore and Samuel stepping it up, things are looking more positive for our receiver group than in recent years.
  11. Week 12 GDT: Seahawks (5-5) @ Panthers (6-4)

    Gano no lo gano again. Also, Elder is terrible.
  12. Doomsday scenario: Can UCF get in?

    The problem is the big name power five schools have to agree and want to play UCF. It’s not like UCF gets to choose who they play in that regard.
  13. Panthers @ Lions

    I like the two-point call. Execution was terrible.
  14. Panthers @ Lions

    Gano no lo gano.
  15. All non-football related chat can go here. Aaaaaannnndddd ... go!
  16. DEN ownership succession battle looming

    Trust and probate aren’t my thing. Probably a high hurdle to oust the trustees though. You’d likely have to show some bad faith or unfitness. Even “That’s not what dad would have wanted” wouldn’t in and of itself be enough, most likely (especially if the directives have wiggle room or ambiguity). But like I said, not really my thing so I can’t speak with a lot of authority on the matter. I’ll just get some popcorn and settle in to watch the ish show with the rest of y’all.
  17. Favorite Franchise Mode - Madden

    The 04-06 range was all solid. Then they started tweaking stuff and removing standard features only to add it back in as “new” years later. Like, f that. It ain’t new if it was in the game ten years ago...
  18. I need to start lifting again, but the baby is killing my sleep. Smolov or bust. Not really. Did that once already. Too old for that ish...
  19. Week 8 | Other Games Thread

    Not a fair comparison; Tohsoo hasn’t played Nebraska yet.
  20. Week 8 | Other Games Thread

    Ok. I don’t doubt LSU will be ready. I don’t think anybody really does. That’s my point. You’re ginning up a disrespect narrative that doesn’t exists. Will they lose? Probably. Most likely. Does that mean they’ve got no shot? Not at all. Does them likely losing mean it can’t be a close game? Of course not. Have people argued otherwise?
  21. Week 8 | Other Games Thread

    Only story I could find so far said there were some injuries but not fatalities.
  22. Week 8 | Other Games Thread

    Did a lot of people say LSU is going to get run out of their own stadium? Did people say they have no chance? Sidenote: I’ve never heard “gamed” to mean anything positive. You say they’re gonna be gamed and I hear they’re gonna get rolled. Be game, sure. Be gamed, that’s bad.
  23. Week 8 | Other Games Thread

    You doubt they’ll win. So ... you’re doubting LSU. I mean, I don’t care. It’s just a curious position to take when one is calling out others for doubting LSU is going to win.
