  1. If a veteran player's production doesn't match his pay then you bite the bullet and cut him assuming the cap hit isn't too harsh. It frees up a valuable roster spot for a young player who can develop for a low price, or a veteran who is likely to produce similar to what he's being paid. I think CJ will be cut.
  2. Free Agent DB's

    The positive side of things is that Bene has not hit his ceiling of course. Time will tell, but we'll certainly need to bring some guys in for competition at the spot.
  3. Free Agent DB's

    Not a fan of Bene at all. I certainly hope Gettleman has plans to bring in starting level CBs. Opposing coaches saw that Bene can't cover for poo and targeted him. Bene is good for giving up tons of catches, and then desperately trying to run the receiver down afterward. Hell you can get any guy off the street to do that. Need to upgrade, but do it without breaking the bank of course. I'm hoping we tag Norman and then let him start his decline with some other team.  
  4. 2016 Top NFL free agents - running backs

    Forte would pair nicely with Stewart.
  5. 2003 or 2015.... which one hurt more?

    2003 not even close. I had a feeling after that game that I might not ever see the Panthers win a SB. This one wasn't that bad because we played like ass and deserved to lose, and we should be back in the SB very soon. Maybe even next season. It's not that bad.
  6. Positions we need to upgrade

    Cam just texted me that he "he doesn't want me at RT, he NEEDS me at RT" so things are not looking good for Remmers. I'm not even big enough to play tackle.  
  7. Offensive Tackles cost us the game.

    I only watched the SB once, so I might be wrong, but I thought Daryl Williams was out there with help most of the time. And didn't we run a lot of max protect once Williams went into the game. That would indicate that Shula is less confident in Williams pass blocking than he is in Remmers. That would suggest that Williams might be a backup player for his career here. Of course he has room to improve, so he might end up a starter. At any rate we need to look at RTs in this draft and FA.
  8. You have to know going into the game that Remmers would need help. The game hinged on giving Remmers help to protect Cam. Shula failed.
  9. Who Should Go or not resign

    Charles Johnson - His body is falling apart, and he's not producing. Gone. Jared Allen - Too old. Gone. Roman Harper - The slowest starting safety in the NFL. Gone. Jerrico Cotchery - The slowest WR in the NFL, and pooped the bed in the SB. Gone. Peanut - One of the slowest CBs in the NFL, and body is falling apart. Gone. Jonathan Stewart - His production matches his pay, and our other RBs are a major downgrade. Welcome back. Josh Norman - Congratulations on your new contract with our team.  Remmers - Pooped the bed in the SB. Welcome to career backup. Had flashbacks of Nate Chandler watching him *shudder* McClain - No real need to sign him for depth when you can just cut him, and then if needed sign him off the street again. Finnegan - Can stay for cheap, or hit the bricks. Who cares? Could be roster churn.    
  10. Cam to reporter "We'll be back"

    The key is to win the South and get back into the playoffs. Brees is another year older, Atlanta is a mess, and TB is still very young at QB. Now is our time. We need more weapons on offense, and a better RT, but we're in great shape.
  11. Offensive Tackles cost us the game.

    Remmers was out there blocking like Nate Chandler. He's done.
  12. We basically found out the type of team that can beat us in the playoffs, and how they'll try to do it next season. We're vulnerable to a team with an elite D-line, and DBs who can hold up in single coverage and allow the box to be loaded to stop our run. We have to make moves to counter that from happening again next season. The two best ways to stop that are improving the o-line, and improving the WR corps. KB will improve the WR corps, but RT will have to be addressed. The pass blocking is just not good enough to face an elite d-line.
  13. Positions we need to upgrade

    Williams was injured in week 1 with a bad knee injury and was out for half the season.
  14. With Cam as QB do we have a shorter 'window'?

    Cam will still be an effective runner at 32. We have a large window, but we have to address o-line and WR which is not easy.
  15. So where does Carolina finish next year?

    I don't literally mean I want Remmers handing out water next season. I'd like to see him in a backup role.
