I think its time for him to hang it up. We can keep Josh Freeman as the backup for a fraction of the cost it would take to bring a broken down Hasselbeck back. Josh Freeman impressed me this year. Enough so that I'm perfectly fine with him being our backup.
I do think Cam is a Great talent but I don't see Carolina going back to the SB next year. Generally the SB loser doesn't and Carolina squeaked by several games. I even Posted before the SB I didn't think they were a typical 15-1 team as in dominating. I knew they wouldn't beat Denver and I think next season they fall back a little and go something like 11-5. No way they duplicate 15-1 again. I also think Andrew is a better a QB compared to Cam, both play similar styles but to me Andrew is the better passer. Andrew's INT's would go down if we had a half way decent O.Line. I would also take Andrew's nerdy nice off the field approach compared to Cam's approach. Andrew is similar to Peyton off the field. I am not a hater of Cam as he deserved the MVP but I think this is the best you guys will see out of him. Remember Carolina went 7-8-1 just the year before and have never been nothing special up until this season. Sometimes teams have unusual surprising seasons where all the breaks go their way, Carolina had one of those years IMO
I understand dgb. I pride myself on my music versatility & I can handle anything from Big Band to Heavy Metal & everything in between, but rap & hip hop aren't my personal favorite music choices. I can see the appeal of sports talk radio too because you can tinker with other things while your listening to it since it doesn't demand a person's undivided attention.
Yeah, RW has become beloved everywhere he's been. He just have this drive to succeed at whatever he does, he lifts his teammates up vs dragging them down, he isn't consumed with being a superstar just earning the respect of his peers by putting the work in, & he has this disarming nature about him where he can match whatever level of sophistication or low key demeanor a reporter or interviewer is sending his way.
Plus, RW even surprised me with how well he played the QB position after talent had to be traded away due to his new salary & he turned into a better pocket passer behind an offensive line in flux. I didn't think RW would exceed my expectations & he did. He still uses his feet to rescue himself frequently, but now, this year I see him trying to break runs less & make plays from the pocket with short moves & sliding in the pocket or just outside it to make more 1st down throws. A huge leap forward. Gotta give it up to ya Russ & admit I was wrong or pleasantly surprised.
Dgb, I always get a kick out of couples who listen to drastically different musical artists probably because I wanna know the point in the relationship where the guy finds out this difference & says to himself "It's a darn good thing I found you attractive & charming before you revealed what you liked to listen to because if someone told me I would marry a rap lover & I'm a country lover I would have told them they were bleeping insane. LOL! "
