  1. Big Boards

    I have a strange feeling we'll grab either a combo of (DE, OT/OG, DT) or (DE, OT/OG, CB) in the first three rounds. Even though I really want to go DE in the first, I could totally see a surprise draft like:  #30) Jason Spriggs OT / Indiana or Germain Ifedi OT / Texas A&M  #62) Austin Johnson DT / Penn State #94) Jihad Ward DE / Illinois or Shawn Oakman DE / Baylor (if Gettleman likes him.)   Really just depends on how BPA falls this year.
  2. Is Kony Ealy the next great Panthers defensive end?

    How the Giants, Chiefs and Browns passed over Gettleman boggles my mind, the guy has one of the best eyes for talent I've seen in a long time.

    Imagine if Carolina keeps Big Money, then does a sign and trade for Norman getting a 2016 1st from the Raiders or Jags. The possibilities would be endless with a GM like Gettleman. We could end up with two first rounders a second and possibly two thirds in the unlikely event we get a compensatory for Hardy.     
  4. Are there any players on The Huddle?

    I'm Riverboat Ron, no relation.
  5. we just voided Harper and Cotch contracts

    Clutchery. :(
  6. What might a Charles Johnson extension look like?

    That's what I hope.
  7. What might a Charles Johnson extension look like?

    Question is will Big Money be comfortable with it. He might just say fug you, pay me $15 Million this year or cut me so I can go to the Bucs or Falcons and get a 3 year $35 million deal. $15 million guaranteed. 
  8. NFL Turning Point: The Clete Blakeman Effect

    This game from the beginning had the feel of our 49ers loss. Obvious calls were ignored that benefited us and phantom calls that got no replay only happened to us. It was even a repeat of them taking our physicality away with flags and letting Denver play even more physically. Late shots and helmet shots on Newton, facemask on Talib, every play I saw Roby held to some degree.  Then the icing was the call on Norman, the refs wanted pass interference but realized the ball was 10 yards above the receivers head so they called holding. Norman was within 5 yards and touched him far less than the Roby play they picked up the flag.    I'm over it, nothing the Panthers can do but come back stronger next year and hope we get an evenly called game.
  9. Other teams early cuts

    Wonder if we start getting more reliable vets at bargains trying to get a ring?
  10. Carolina Panthers Top 3 Offseason Priorities

    I'd hate to lose Norman, seems like a really cool guy. A sign and trade would be ideal for both parties but Norman brings a presence we've never had at corner.
  11. Big Congrats to the Carolina Panthers

    I'm proud of those guys, they'll come back stronger just like the loss in Seattle did wonders to strengthen this team.

    Dat pedo stache doe!
  13. So ready for the draft and training camp.
  14. Blandino on the no catch call

    I've given up on trying to figure out calls, just seems like we get pooed on with anything in the realm of refs decision.On questionable catches they give the catch to other teams forcing us to challenge, then we lose the challenge on lack of evidence. Then when we have the ball and make a questionable catch they call it incomplete and force us to challenge, then don't overturn because of the lack of 100% evidence. On top of that how many times have we been hurt on 3 step completions with a football action getting called incomplete. I hate playing the sour grape but Jesus if it didn't feel like we were held to a different standard on holds and blocking. Top that off with the lack of an offside call on the FG miss and I just accepted the fact the only way we'd win is if Cam took over and didn't get a play called back.
