  1. Who cares who wins tomorrow !!!

    I do, so i don't have to deal with all the bandwagon Panther fans down here in Charlotte for the next 7 months. It's both sad and pathetic to see 80 year old grandma's dabin the isles  of Wamart.  Make room for me on the Panthers’ bandwagon! Sorry I didn’t say it earlier, but I’ll say it now: Go Panthers! 1 of 2 Carolina Panthers fans cheer the team during first quarter action vs the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, October 4, 2015 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fl. The Panthers defeated the Buccaneers 37-23. Jeff Siner jsiner@charlotteobserver.com   A funny feeling has been growing inside of me over the past several weeks. It started after the Carolina Panthers beat the Jacksonville Jaguars in their season opener, a game I didn’t even remember was happening until I read the recap online a few hours later. (Well, maybe I didn’t actually read the recap, but I saw the headline, and it said the Panthers won.) The feeling grew when the Panthers defeated the Houston Texans in Week 2. I was at the movies when the game was on TV, I’ll admit, but I caught the highlights on ESPN when I got home. (Or did I? I can’t remember. I had intended to, at least ...) Then came another win. Then another. But it wasn’t until last week – after they upset the defending NFC champion Seattle Seahawks on the road – that I fully recognized the emotions stirring inside my soul. ADVERTISING And now I want to throw it out there and scream it to all the world: I LOVE THE PANTHERS! Man, I really, really love them. Or maybe I should say, I love us. That’s right, I can say it now since I’m a true fan: We beat the Seattle Seahawks last week, in our toughest test of the season. As soon as Cam connected with Olsen on that final game-winning drive – as soon as it was clear Cam wasn’t going to miss a wide-open target and that Olsen wasn’t going to drop an easy pass – I jumped onto Facebook and posted the most creative thing that came to mind: “5 and Oh, BABYYYY!” Then I scrolled through my feed and saw that one friend had posted “5-0!!” and another had posted “Five and Zero!!!” and another had posted “5. And. 0.” Not wanting to be accused of unoriginality, I deleted my post and simply changed my profile picture to a photo of a Cam Newton jersey that I found online. Several friends quickly clicked “Like” on it, but to my surprise, a couple of acquaintances who have had Cam Newton jerseys as their profile photos for several years chimed in with “Uh, bandwagon much?” and “#fairweatherfan” comments. Since those comments weren’t relevant to my photo, I decided to delete them and unfriended both people. Still, I thought, it probably would be good to actually own a Panthers jersey and not just steal a photo of one. So I went over to the Team Store at Bank of America Stadium and, I’ll admit, I went a little crazy. I bought a Panthers jersey, a Panthers banner for the front of the house, a Panthers phone case, a Panthers car decal (although I made sure it was easily removable), and a Panthers coffee mug that I plan to carry around and slurp loudly from all day long, just so people are clear about my allegiance. With that shopping done, I now feel totally ready for this weekend. I’ll be back at the stadium for the first time since Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw did a concert there three years ago, decked out in my new jersey and a face full of blue and black paint, toting hilariously original jokes like “What do the Eagles and the Post Office have in common?? Neither deliver on Sundays!!” If the Panthers win, I’ll try to bite my tongue and not light up the bandwagon fans who suddenly start talking on Monday like they’ve been supporting the team all along. But if by some chance we lose ... anyone know what the Team Store’s return policy is?

    I am sorry for failing to see the humor in your post.    on the other hand i am 100% in agreement with you on this point. NO WAY IN HELL you will see my in anything other than Jets gear. When Mike Greenberg put on that TB12 I turned off mike and mike and never put that shown on again. I know a lot of you hate boomer and carton but to someone out of state who loves the Knicks,Jets and Yankees it a way to get a pulse on the daily NY sports seen. That Mother F!@#er Carton said he was rooting for NE this am I grabbed the remote turned it off and will never listen or watch it on CBS again.  I have no patience or tolerance for disloyalty I live and die a Jets fan period.

    you have ZERO idea of what you are talking about. Matt is one of the biggest Jets fans i know. Many of us down in Charlotte would not have anywhere to watch the Jets games if it was not for him PERIOD! http://www.charlottejetsfans.com/1/ I have a ton of gratitude for him and well as another 50-100 fans who every week of the season are able to watch the Jets game at Dilworth Grill. Thank you Matt.  With that being said both of my kids on "Panther pride Fridays" ALWAYS rock there Jets swag and have zero problem sticking up "their team" . There  will be NO Cam Newton Hit em up boyz, dabin down in this house.

    You will be really happy here. I lived in many major cites on the east and west coast, the wife and moved her in September and both just love it. We played the power ball and both agreed if we hit we would not want to live anywhere else.

  8. Trade Targets?

    I believe he signed a long term deal with SD this year.  http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2015/8/15/8647735/philip-rivers-contract-extension-chargers San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has agreed to a multi-year contract extension, the team announced on Saturday. It's a four-year extension that will keep him with the team through 2019. The deal is worth approximately $84 million in new money, with $65 million guaranteed, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. That means Rivers is just about on par with the other highest-paid quarterbacks of the league. All of Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton, Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco and Drew Brees are making an average of at least $20 million per season, and Rivers' deal fits right in that tier. Rodgers still leads the group with an average of $22 million per season.  This deal would include the largest guaranteed money of any of those players, with Wilson coming the closest with just over $61 million in guarantees. According to Ed Werder of ESPN, the deal also includes a surprising no-trade clause. The Chargers are one of the favorites to move to Los Angeles, and given Rivers' lack of interest in raising his children there, it was thought that he would push for an out clause that allowed him to escape the franchise if it moved. Instead, he's now committed to the Chargers through his 38th birthday, no matter where they end up. Rivers was coming into the final year of a six-year, $91.8 million contract he signed back in 2009. Initially, there was talk that the two sides wouldn't be able to work out a deal, especially given the relocation issues, with multiple trade rumors surrounding Rivers, the Chargers and the 2015 NFL Draft. But shortly after the draft, the Chargers claimed they were optimistic about an extension and here we are. Rivers was making an average of just over $15 million per season on his previous contract, and his play hasn't declined at all since he signed that deal. San Diego hasn't found the success it wants, but that hasn't had much to do with Rivers' play. He's been excellent for years, and is coming off a season in which he completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 4,286 yards, 31 touchdowns and 18 interceptions.  This could be the last big payday for Rivers, who is entering his 12th season in the NFL. He's been with the Chargers ever since he was traded from the New York Giants shortly after the 2004 NFL Draft. He has a completion percentage of 64.7 for his career and has thrown for 36,655 yards, 252 touchdowns and 122 interceptions. Rivers was already set up for significant payday, but the numbers likely went up whenRyan Tannehill and Cam Newton both signed massive contracts. Tannehill is earning an average of $19.25 million per season through 2020 with the Miami Dolphins, while Newton is making more than $20 million per season in Carolina with his five-year, $103.8 million extension
  9. WIlkerson or Von Miller?

    How about Mo or Tamba Hali? He is URFA as well
  10. http://www.ganggreennation.com/2016/1/7/10732228/new-york-jets-special-teams-falcons-stc-keith-armstrongs-deal-about  Falcons STC Keith Armstrong's Deal About to ExpireCoach Keith Armstrong's contract should be over soon. As a long time friend of New York Jets HC Todd Bowles, he may soon fill Gang Green's vacancy.   Despite the fact that the New York Jets special teams unit played poorly this season, the firing of STC Bobby April still came as a surprise to me. With around 25 years of experience, he has long been regarded as one of the best in the NFL, winning STC Coach of the Year twice, in 2004 and then in 2008. With some of the shuffling of the players on the unit at the end of the season, it seemed to indicate that personnel was to blame and not the coordinator. I don't believe that HC Todd Bowles would act so hastily without a plan, and it does seem as though he clearly had a candidate in mind. It is one whom he has pursued in the past, one with whom he has longstanding ties, and as the Atlanta Journal-Constitutionreports, one who will soon most likely be available:           
  11. Let Ivory Walk?

    6 effing carries 
  12. What about Chris Ivory only having 6 carries?!?!?!
  13. Best thing about that  is that you can find a quality 3rd down back latter in the draft. The cards  got David Johnson in the 3rd round. The best pass catching rookie RB in this years draft.
  14. Jets at Bills Predictions

    I don't believe Darby is playing. I could be 100% wrong but I believe i read some where he is out.    Sorry i was wrong: Ronald Darby is expected to play in the finale after missing the Cowboys game with a groin injury. He is listed as probable and he took part in practice this week on a limited basis.  1/1
