Panthers are No.31 and other notes

Three quick thoughts on a Wednesday:

1) FoxSports.com has the Panthers No.31 out of 32 teams (ahead of only Buffalo) in its latest power rankings. Ouch. I'd put them a little higher right now, but not much -- around No.27 (also ahead of Lions, Browns, Raiders and Rams).

2) I wrote my column today on Kyle "Rowdy" Busch, who says he would trade all 80 of his wins in NASCAR's 3 biggest series for one Sprint Cup championship this season. Busch gets married to aspiring model Samantha Sarcinella on Dec.31st, so his offseason will be pretty good either way.

3) Darin Gantt had a nice piece for our newspaper today about the Panthers' problems at the No.2 wide receiver spot. I found this chart particularly interesting about the players Carolina had a shot at but didn't get in the offseason. Out of all these guys, I like Boldin the most -- that would have been quite an acquisition and would have fit in well with what Carolina likes to do.

#31 is about right. Our supposed strengths, O-line, D-backs, and coaching, all have been HORRIBLE this year. Without some large scale changing of the roster, this team is not going to win 4 games. This is going to get VERY ugly. At least we have the Bobcats and their capable management to enjoy!!

Why so high!

The Panthers are not anywhere close to #31. They are in the top ten for sure. It is normal for us to start slow, we will be there come Super Bowl time! Coach Fox is the BEST coach in the league, and one of the best in history. His name will go down with Hallis and Lombardi as pillars in the sport. Charlotte is lucky to have him as a coach, and even luckier to have Mr. Richardson as an owner. He cares more about the fans than any other owner. Once he even smiled at me as I walked past him at the game, I almost fanted.

@Mr.Bernz I see you skipped taking your medication again.

Scott, is there any update on the progress of Jeff Otah?

Mr. Bernz said...

Wisurto, I must have punked you as well. Everyone on this site knows I am the master of football knowledge. I have forgotten more about football than you will ever know. When Coach Fox needs input, he calls me for ideas. It is a little known fact that Coach Fox is highly allergic to tobacco smoke, and I was instrumental in the smoking ban being placed at BOA Stadium. This football team can't go on without me!!!!

31 is pretty accurate right now, unfortunately. But at least now we're completely off teams' radars and could surprise the Bengals!

Kyle Bush the ugliest male on the planet??

Gold-digger? Yes

mrbernz said...

LOL Another 1 punked. I feel so powerful. BTW, whoever it is i punked into making a name to honor me, That smoking ban was probably 1 of the best things to happen to the stadium. Even though i live too far away to go to a game, smoking is bad if you dont already know that & people beside you dont need to have to smell your nasty habit. 1 more thing, the retard i punked didnt make their name as i do mine, notice the nice color of my name.

#31 is right, They could not beat the Lions right now. And the other teams you mentioned would probably end in a tie!!....I can't wait until the Bobcat's start playing again.

I see Kyle has bought Samantha a couple of nice things already, which she wears proudly. UU

1. Matt Moore - W/L 4-1, TD/INT 8-1, 98 rating in 2009. Who knew?

2. We let Boldin get away. We let Chris Harris get away. Hmmm.

3. While I appreciate Jerry Richardson's loyalty to the league, he's gutted this team and pulled out the rug from Fox. Pretty much the fans too at this point.

mrbernz said...

I agree with Ben. I believe Richardson decided he didnt care about this season when he decided not to extend Fox's contract. Remember the end of last season when he said Fox could go to another team if he wanted to? I believe he had already decided how he was going to deal with this season. I dont believe its strictly to do the cba dealing but to trim the fat from the team & get it ready for whoever is the next coach. Oh 1 more thing. That tard that made the wanna be me name was right about another thing. The fans are lucky to have Richardson as an owner. Not many people would waste their time with such a whiny immature fan base as what i see posting here daily.

This Bernz idiot sounds like some 100 lb skinny little mouthy nerd weakling ex-waterboy who almost lost his teeth a few times with a stupid big mouth and still could.

mrbernz said...

Very brave from an anonymous poster. The truth hurts you doesnt it. Also, i bet youre too stupid to tell the difference in the real me & the wanna be me.

Agree. This Bernz moron is gay. What a total douche.

mrbernz said...

Is something alerting your gaydar anonymouse? I have heard all you people think you can tell when other men are gay, but you need your gay instincts callibrated.
By the way, thats probably the same moron i made feel stupid earlier.

We had this waterboy at 71st who only came in the locker room when guys were changing or taking showers getting his eyes full. He was queer as a 3 dollar bill. We ran him off.
