    Brown isn't going anywhere.  Those that think so really need to get a grip.  The guy is in a slump and will come out of it and have a great year.

    He's only a Junior.  Good chance he still has a couple more inches to grow.     I know for a fact it can happen.  I was 4'11" when I started my junior year (many moons ago) and graduated at 6' and grew to 6'1".  13 inches in 21 months.
    Unless you're a super stud they don't start looking until you start your Junior year.

    Most importantly he has chemistry with Cam.  Unlike 2013 he didn't seem to get it till the end of the season and still had a pretty good year.
    I say over.

    Thank god they are releasing a starting DT.   Has anyone asked why this guy is getting cut?  Is Cleveland so loaded with DTs that they are releasing a solid DT?

    Now go back and tell me how many of those drafted are still on the team as compared to the one we drafted.  I would bet the number of drafted players remaining is different for us.   2011 would kill us but 2012 and on.  Pretty solid.

  6. DaveThePanther2008 added a post in a topic How Elite is this defense going to be?   

    THIS^^^ So much doubt drives me crazy.  Ealy looks to be one stepping up to take the DE position opposite of CJ.  Shaq looks to be a MAJOR upgrade on a stout LB corps.  Tillman, Norman and Benewikere are going to be awesome.  I see Harper having a great season because he'll have great talent in front of him.  The Coleman addition is the spunk that made us awesome in 2013. 
     I see us with a better defense than we had in 2013.   Sure if injuries hit us that could all go down the tubes but that is with any defense.
    I think this defense could be one of the best ever during this era of football.  Will they top the best scoring defense ever, probably not but in this era they might. 
    I believe Rivera and Gettleman have built a defense to defend the high flying offenses of the NFL.  I don't think the butt whooping we put on N.O. and Atlanta was a fluke last year.  If this defense plays up to their abilities and plays as a unit.  This is going to be a special year.  
    As far as the naysayers.   They are the same ones that think we'll go 9-7 or 8-8 every year.

    I always pick a UDFA that Gettleman brings in and hop on his bandwagon.  Gaydosh and Brown being the 1st two season to be players to make it that I pulled for.
    Wegher is this years hopeful and based on his production early I still think he has a chance. Maybe a special teams ace and spot carries here and there.  I hardly think believing he has a legitimate shot at making the team is over hyping him.  You have never heard me say he was starting material (at least not now), You have never heard me claim to dump every vet we got and make him number 2.  I think he is as good as any of our backup running backs and could still make this team.
    What I think we need is stop making a big deal about fans being fans and hoping our team is best top to bottom regardless of how we obtain those players.

    We have arguably the best DL in the league
    We have arguably the best LB Corps in the League (Lead by arguably the best defensive player in the game)
    Our secondary is much improved and I see Tillman being the ring leader of very cocky secondary. We have a great nickel who could be starting in Benewikere.
    Our offense will feed off of great field position and get into a groove.
    Don't give me that GD Brady is having personal issues.  He's the starting QB for the reigning SB champs.  He has been running Billicheats offense for many years.  I think he should be able to do this in his sleep.  Give the defense credit instead of making excuses for the biggest baby in the NFL.

    How Elite is this defense going to be?
    When you think of the addition of Peanut and Coleman to this defense.  Where really is a weakness? 
    Our defense in the first half was tough against the first team offense of the reigning Super Bowl Champs.  And that was without 3/4 of our starting Defensive Line.
    Every spot we have a quality player on our defense.The way McDermott and Wilks run this defense as long as we stay healthy the sky is the limit.
    I sometimes cannot contain my excitement over this defensive squad. 
    Could this defense be as good as any in NFL History?  Could we set records with this defense?
    It is going to be good to see if we can.

    I'll take Bersin too.  The man doesn't drop passes, runs good routes and knows how to get open.   Boykins over Cotchery though.

  11. DaveThePanther2008 added a post in a topic Panthers taking Patriots game seriously   

    Honestly we might game plan and IMO we should.  I hate the Patriots and beating them in regular season or preseason makes my day.   But if it comes down to losing to them because Star, CJ, Short and Stewart all skip the game so they are healthy for game one.  I won't fret too much if they win or not.   Beating them in preseason mean absolutely nothing. 
    Beating them in Week 21 sure the hell Does
    I'll bet most of our DL sits tomorrow night.

    They would be better if Shula wouldn't script the first six plays and send them to the other teams.

  13. DaveThePanther2008 added a post in a topic Shula: KB's void may be filled by committee, talks up CB   

    I don't see the hate for Brown.  He came on strong at the end of last year and is a great find.  He isn't a one year wonder and given the opportunity he will shine.
    Brown has that chip like Smitty did just not being a smart ass to go with it.
    He has become a good route runner and with his speed that skill will open him up often.  I am not too worried about the drops.  (at least not now)
    I think his odds of breaking out of the pack are as good as any other receiver we have on the roster.

    I agree.  As long as Matsko stays around.  I think he could last 5 or 6 good seasons.

    Free Agent Natron Means, Nakamura, Keyshawn
    Draft Picks Jarrett, Shelton, Anderson, AE and Joe Adams
    Should have learned my lesson with AE but when Adams came around I jumped on that Bandwagon again and crashed in Wofford.
