Dude the G-Men took OBJ last year not Justin Pugh, come on tighten it up a little
Can you take the time one of these weeks to figure out what a ratio actually is?
please explain why someone who is top 10 in almost every category related to his position is only ranked 20 in your stupid cali-boy made ratings ? oh wait ... you cant ... you are a hack and a homer ...

Why do you clowns have to keep on crapping on Matt Cassel's head? He is every bit as effective, perhaps moreso, than Stafford and Cutler and yet gets ranked 29th when all three of them had a good game and a bad game. What Cutler did was worse - He turned a winnable game into a loss - The Vikings were never going to beat the Patriots without Peterson. Too bad all this nonsense about that stupid little kid (who could have killed the three year old by the way which started the whole thing) destroyed Minnesota's season. Of course had Cassel taken the Vikings to the post season no doubt you would have reported how Peterson did it ALL BY HIMSELF. Keep calling for Teddy Bridgewater and you will get what you ask for. The kid has almost no chance of making it but make sure you destroy what little chance he has by throwing him in there without a running game.
Who is saying Greg Hardy will serve any suspension? The process has NOT been completed nor is it final.The propaganda that media types display is beyond measure. Ryan you seem to be a better person than that....? Seriously???
"If the Panthers were serious about a Super Bowl in 2014, they would have been more serious about bringing in some actual weapons for their franchise quarterback"
I'm not complaining about the record you projected us at, it's reasonable to think we'll be in that range. However, the organization is serious about a Super Bowl as every other organization should be. How could Carolina bring in better weapons when there was little cash to spend? Gettleman has done all he can to help us out financially. Remember, it's because of Marty Hurney that we're in such financial trouble.
The average vet can outplay the normal rookie star...Who could The Panthers have gotten over what they did get who could have upgraded over what they got? If the Panthers were serious about a Super Bowl in 2014, they would have been more serious about bringing in some actual weapons for their franchise quarterback. Benjamin has talent and size but doesn’t seem ready to carry the burdens that come with being a No. 1 receiver. That is something he didn’t even have to deal with in college. No but this is NOT college and he is the No#1 guy now so let us see how it all works for you Ryan.
RYAN YOU ARE KILLING ME WITH THIS PANTHERS RECORD.....11-5 or 10-6 worst with this team. Learn your football. What is on paper doesn't translate to the field.
-Played for the Raiders, New York Jets and briefly with the Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens I see you are qualified but you hate the PANTHERS!
Ryan - I think the spell check failed this time. I believe "commodore" should be "camaraderie." Good story!
