  1. USA Today ranks the NFL head coaches

    As much as I hate Billicheat his numbers you can't argue with. Rivera at minimum, is equal to Carroll. Harbaugh is good but his teams lately have been so so. Loved what he did with SS though. Tomlin - average since Dick LaBeau left Payton - Why cause he is a Bill Parcells disciple? RR has made Payton his bitch. Zimmerman - He just took over the Vikings, how can you say he is top five after a season or two Arians - Outstanding Coach but not nearly as good as Rivera. Ron has grown as a head coach and continues to get better but let's not forget and should be part of the discussion (especially if you are using Zimmerman which as to be based partly on what he did as an assistant) that RR has had a stellar defense everywhere he has been. Chicago, San Diego and of course Carolina. Rock solid defense everywhere he has gone.

    Exactly. 3837 Yds. Considering our rushing attack is top tier those are some pretty good numbers. If Shula loses his mind and becomes Chudz is about the only way you are going to see our WR with huge numbers.

    Brown might not be much of a return man but he is just as dangerous as Ginn. I think he has better hands and runs better routes. Furthermore, Brown is much younger. Not a Ginn hater but I said last year I thought we didn't need Ginn back with Brown. Fortunately for us we didn't have to choose because KB went down. Look at it this way. Ginn has peaked, Brown is only going to get better. Love the idea that we don't have 5 locks and 8 wannabes. We have some serious competition and over the next couple of months the cream is going to rise to the top. I will be happy with whoever they choose because honestly I don't think we lose with any combination. Who would have thought by 2016 teams would be watching our roster to see who we are going to cut at the WR spot.

    How we went from a talentless WR Corp (minus SS) to over abundance of talent in 2+ yrs is absolutely amazing. Obviously it is far too soon to tell but I wouldn't say there are locks outside of KB and Funchess. I think Ginn is a near lock but not 100%. Ginn is on the 2nd year of a two year deal. Byrd, Brown and HIll are speedsters and I wouldn't put it past Gman to make a decision to keep someone other than Ginn. Don't get me wrong I think Ginn was a key part of our offense but he isn't irreplaceable.. It is very possible that those preseason drops might make a difference this year..
  5. Carolina Panthers OTA thread - May 24

    Let's be smart and no silly injuries.
  6. This comes from the same clown that thinks he has drafted 7 first round grade players in the past two seasons. http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/bucs-gm-thinks-hes-drafted-seven-first-round-talents-the-last-two-years/
  7. CPAT!!!!

    The guy couldn't catch a cold.

    Nice Article actually
  9. The Next Legends

    Don't be such a pessimist. I would have put Winston in place of Luck or Wilson.

    Give ya three guesses who is No. 1. http://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/five-nfl-qbs-who-are-next-in-line-to-become-legends/ar-BBt7Ixc?li=BBnba9I&ocid=iehp#page=1
  11. "Mucas" is back!

    I think so too. God only knows of Garrett makes the team. How would you like to face 6'4 and above at every possible receiving target except RB.
  12. "Mucas" is back!

    Aaaahhhh nothing like a bit of competition. Better than the days of the top one or two and the rest were just playing a role as someone with an opportunity. Now you have to battle with the young studs to keep your job.
  13. Antonio Cromartie wants to come to Carolina

    I know most don't want him here but I would love at least one Veteran in the group and if it isn't Peanut than it might as well be Cromartie.
  14. Keyarris Garrett didn't have to choose Carolina, but he did

    I think what makes this so impressive is that this staff for the most part has been together for 5 years. We haven't lost a coordinator since Chudz left and replaced him with someone who has really started to shine. Otherwise our entire defensive staff has remained the same. Continuity cannot be overlooked. You keep the same guys with the same philosophy and you are going to be good. Ray Brown and Ricky Proehl were long time stars in this league and have a ton of respect from the players. And as it has been mentioned time and time again. Dave Gettleman doesn't draft idiots. You have to be a smart player to be a Panther. Period. I love this mentality we have. Smart is good. Go Panthers

    Who knows what our staff can do with him. Otherwise camp fodder.
