could you answer if you read these? Just so i know
I think you have every right respond to those critics, because you are a very very good journalists, and people just trash writers, they don't give rational criticism. People on bleacher report are offended every time somebody doesn't rank their home team player over someone else because they're all they watch. Same with me I'm an Eagles fan and I was kind of annoyed when you ranked lesean mccoy behind adrian peterson but thats an opinion by me. What do I know I'm a kid! Keep up the good work, I really look forward to your articles.
I have to come to you directly, because every time you respond to a critic (on one of your articles), you do it wrong. I want you get this through your head: Don't be mean to people who offer you rational criticism. You are shooting yourself in the foot every time you react to someone who disagrees with you. You are, without a doubt, the most unprofessional sports journalist I have ever seen. Get your act together, because I, along with other people, do not have respect for you (or any other writer that reacts like a child). You are a professional journalist, so behave like one.
Panthers focused on ending a five-game losing streak on Kickoff Weekend when they open the season at Tampa Bay. All good & bad things come to an end!
Russell S. Baxter you are my least favorite writer because of your total bias for the ATL falcons. You have a problem with Cam Newton because he grew up in ATL and is now a Panther. Until the next bias review you write.....
I know the article you posted about the nfl's best rivalries is old is old but i saw it for the first time recently.. I'm so surprised that Jets vs Patriots isn't being mentioned really at all by anyone.... over the past 15-20 years there have been endless story lines... Parcells and martin jumping to the jets.. Bellichick resigning a day after being named jets coach to go to NE... The jets responsible for brining Brady in when he was a back up... Then the Mangini/Bellichick hatred... Then Brady publicly saying he hates the jets... Then Rex coming in and saying he wasn't brought in to kiss BB rings.. Then beating him 4 times in 4 years as Jets coach (including a playoff win in NE)... Also, the spygate scandal..... What rivalry has more storylines than that? Not to mention these teams tend to split the season series with each other on a yearly basis now.... Theres also the boston/ny aspect... These teams hate each other... how is this not on the list? Hell... How is it not even being talked about by anyone?! I'm not even a fan of either of these teams but if that's not a rivalry what is? lol
Really???? Last year is last year gone......They will be even better once all are adjusted to their new jobs and roles. You are really dragging us Panther Fans.....Seriously????
What contribution did Steve Smith and others have that could be of any magnitude this year? The Carolina Panthers are doing what any corporation would do. They are making changes for their future. The old has to be changed for the new. This team will NOT have to scratch for points. This is an unit that will force its will on other teams. You play the game on the field and NOT in the media or popularity contests. If you don't see it maybe you need to wait and watch for yourself.
Tiquan Underwood BACK with The Panthers?.......For real? Seriously if he is cut he won't be back because they are looking for young players. He is NOT going to crack the top 3 so why keep him on the team and he be inactive all year? Help me understand you here...!
Why write and article without a comment section...Terrible call though on the Rams.
