    So my question is if he is making all this money on top of everything he has already made then why does he need a loan to begin with?

    The stupid fucker has so much child support payments that he is probably broke.

    Yeah would be interesting to see what the top expenses for athletes is, I think the lawyer fees would definitely be up there for most to bail them out.

    In the article I read, Peterson only owes a little less than 600K on the loan balance.

    That's one game check, I'm guessing. Well, maybe two checks, after taxes.

    Couple of thoughts on last night's game...

    Carolina still relies too much on Newton's legs. He's going to be used up way too young.

    This could be it for Keuchly. Third concussion in three years. He really outgoing to quit. Here's accumulating permanent brain damage at an alarming rate.

    I don't know if Carolina is relying on Newton's legs so much as Cam is relying on his legs.

    I think the Panthers would much rather him stay in the pocket and throw faster, because as soon as it even looks like he even hint at running, the officials are treating him like a runner and the defensive guys are demolishing him.

    You're right, though. He'll be a 60-year-old in about 4 years.

    Fair point. I've long thought that his passing was a weakness. For me, it was his accuracy. But maybe you're right, maybe his decision-making is a part of it too.

    I like his commentary. He's obviously got more football knowledge than most in that seat. Predicts plays off the cuff. Entertaining.

    I think he takes off a half-second too early, looking to run. It disrupts the timing of the receivers' routes. At that point, accuracy is going to suffer because he's moving, his timing is rushed, and you never know if the receivers are going to keep running at the same speed or slow down as they look back toward the QB.

    That's the problem with getting a running Qb like him, it's his nature to run and no matter how hard they try to coach it out he will always revert back to it.

    I don't see him play a lot but he doesn't seem to have that big play maker receiver that can torch the defense that opens up the other ones, unless they get open fast he just tucks the ball and runs and the defenses scheme to that.

    Exactly my read as well.

    RGIII was the same sort of quarterback. He knew he had the legs to get out of trouble, and he always got twitchy about two seconds into his dropback when his receivers were running 2.5-second routes. That half-second twitch was all it took to disrupt the timing of everything.

    Plus, once the QB starts to do anything but step forward in the pocket, the O-lineman are out of position. They'll either block the wrong way, or hold.

    At this point, everyone is out of position except the receivers, but the timing in now off and they're very quickly running out of position. Which means they're not on comeback routes, looking for holes in the zone, or they're working the scramble drill.

    None of this is difficult for the defenses to scheme against: push straight against the pocket, making the QB twitchy and go left, right, or back ... or bring linebackers straight up the middle so the QB can't step forward.

    Well the season is pretty much done, really need to play for draft picks because there still are a lot of holes to fill.

    That sucks. Don’t like him because he plays for the wrong team, but he’s a helluva QB!

    RGIII tried very hard to be a pocket QB.

    His problem wasn't that he ran. It's that he proved to be incapable of reading a defense or running a structured offense. College never prepared him for it and he never could pick it up. Happens to an awful lot of QBs, including a lot of QBs who played a spread offense in college.
