    Incognito placed on psychiatric hold

  2. Carolina Panthers: A- Top needs: Wide receiver, cornerback, defensive end Like their NFC South rivals in Atlanta, the Panthers went with a wide receiver in Round 1, taking Maryland's D.J. Moore at No. 24. I'm a big fan of Moore, who is more than a workout warrior, though he put up freakish numbers at the combine with a 4.42 40 time and 39.5-inch vertical. He was productive for the Terps, and he's great after the catch. He runs through arm tackles, and he's built like a tailback. The Panthers needed a guy like that for Cam Newton, and it wasn't going to be veteran Torrey Smith (another Terp), who was brought in last month. Moore could be Newton's favorite target in a hurry. After parting ways with Daryl Worley, the Panthers needed cornerbacks to compete for the spot opposite James Bradberry. They added two on Day 2 with Donte Jackson (pick 55), one of the fastest players in this class (4.32 40), and Rashaan Gaulden (85), whom I had rated as more of a sixth-round talent. (Remember that veteran safety Kurt Colemanis no longer with the team.) Jackson is only 5-10 and 178 pounds, but he's an elite athlete. Ian Thomas could develop into the heir apparent to Greg Olsen, and to get my fourth-ranked tight end at 104 is great value. Marquis Haynes(136) is another good player on Day 3. If there's an issue with this class, it's not getting a pass-rusher. Are they really going to rely on 38-year-old Julius Peppers to play almost 500 snaps again? Mario Addison is also going to be 31 by Week 1, and you face Matt Ryan, Drew Brees and Jameis Winston six times a year in that division. I liked the depth of this class, though, and won't ding it too much. There is value from top to bottom. ROUND/PICK NAME POS COLLEGE 1/24 D.J.

  3. From cbs sports 136. Marquis Haynes, OLB, Mississippi Grade: A Stand-up LB with powerful hands he uses well. Could add more weight and strength. Some flashes of quickness around the edge.
  4. Any thoughts about these comments about D Henry? 4/2/16: At the combine, Henry declined to run the 40-yard dash, plus had a poor showing in the field drills. Teams also weren't blown away in his interviews. Still, this is a weak tight end class and Henry remains the favorite to be the first selected.

    Panthers claim OT Jonathan Martin

    I love this signing. Bring 'em on in and let them compete. To call Martin a wuss when Incognito was a complete psychopath and had the entire O line against him is BS. Knock it off....
  6. I was thinking about this game is here's how we can win - turn Cam loose. Eff it let Cam run. Forget about him being a pocket passer - we know that he can't go through his progressions and throw with his feet set. So let's go back to what he was good at - running around and making plays. You guys agree?
  7. I'm pulling for the Panthers however my expectations (as is everyone else's) is very low. I fully expect to lose and perhaps lose in a big way. What will most likely happen is well make it close and then blow it somehow towards the end thus sealing Rivera's fate...
  8. And that's how losing teams find ways to lose.
  9. This is such a statement game for Rivera. His team is playing hard. We have them on the ropes. Let's knock them out!!
  10. Seahawks starting to move the ball. Our O has to do better and keep our D off the field!
  11. So much for Garry Williams. Looks to be holding left knee.
  12. Key to the game for CAR? Simple - OLine. Got to open holes for our backs and protect Cam. If that doesn't happen it's going to be a long day for Cam and Company....
