(Expletive) The Panthers



It seems as though NFL teams are really going out of their way to find new ways to blow games recently. Take the Raiders, for instance. The team held David Carr to -5 passing yards and still lost. But Carolina takes top honors for this week. Now, you might want to argue that Carolina should have played for the tie. Conventional wisdom indicates that you play for the tie at home, and the win on the road. The Panthers had to go for the win in that situation. Jake Delhomme threw a bad pass. Actually, Keyshawn Johnson's helmet toss was much better.

1. Keyshawn is a whiny-ass punk. He has always been.

2. What the fuck kind of name is "Keyshawn" anyway?!

Not a Carolina fan. Hate Keyshawn. But can someone explain the five yard rule to me. I understand you have roughly five yards in which the corner can bump the receiver, but does that change when the ball is in the air? As big a dick as Keyshawn is, the ball was in the air when he got bumped by Sheppard (-2 sp). I don't think it was a bad pass because if you look, he through it practically before Keyshawn got off the line. The receiver has to fight through that and get to the spot.

Agreed, I hate Keysawn with that passion usually held for Jim Otto, but there was ALOT pushing on that play. Yet another bad call, but hey it led to Keysshawn throwing his helmet. That helmet hot JACKED UP!

I usually hate Keyshawn but I would have forgiven him if he would have caught that winning TD (money talks). However since he jumped WAAAAAY to early and caused that interception. I hate Keyshawn with a passion.

I hate Jake Delhomme just as much.

You aren't lying. Illegal contact could have been called on that play. But, Keyshawn is like what, 6-5? Lito Sheppard is 5-9. If you can't break away from a cornerback like Sheppard, then maybe the NFL isn't the place for you.

I still don't like that pass from Delhomme. I never thought that he threw the fade route very well. I might be mistaken, but to throw a perfect fade, you want to put it in a spot where a receiver can catch it, or it will fall out of bounds.

If that bump bothered Keyshawn, it's a good thing he doesn't play for the Bills. The acts that the Chargers performed on Bills recievers last Sunday would get you defrocked from the New Life Church.

Are you trying to say that our games are fixed? You had better have a good lawyer, Conrad. Speaking of which, we have a branch office in Arizona.

Enough of your upper west side, elitist posturing, Bain. The Bills lost because J.P. Losman is the poor man's immitation of Jake Plummer. Enough of the fist pumping antics when you've thrown no-less than 7 balls that are INT's on any 75* day, let alone the 2 that were actually intercepted. The better team won on Sunday, albeit, in a most ugly fashion.

Actually, that was the finest looking fade pass I've seen thrown this season. It takes real skill to throw the ball over a 6-5 guy to hit a 5-9 guy just before he tumbles out of bounds. That throw was genius.

Parden moi, mon sewer, but Riverside and West 106th is hardly WupHatten. It's Morningside Heights, more properly known as Central Park's cowlick.

As for the Chargers, they are two gift calls from losing to two of the worst teams in the AFC and fighting for their playoff lives.

Address me in such a fashion again and I shant hesitate to engage you in the fashion I would a lady.

Great point, Bucky.
