  1. Gettleman's post-draft press conference - video

    The difference in demeanor when answering a question from Newton and answering one from guys like Jones or more to the point Voth is HUGE. The presser after rescinding Normans tag which was supposed to be pre-draft talk was the epitome. Getts reads a prepared statement for about 2 minutes, first question is Newton and Getts is like "I just said that. I just said that in so many different ways." Big breath to regain composure and then he restates what he'd already read out. Later on Bill Voth asks about how much losing the 5th year option would be if we were to trade out of the 1st round and Getts' starts his response with "Wow, that's a good question. It's a big deal Bill..." And to top it off, in the post round one presser his laughing at Newton's question about drafting any "connahs" before ignoring him and going back to Bill Voth to add to an answer Rivera gave about Butler being raw was just too funny. I had to watch that whole sequence 5 times before I could move on.
  2. Gettleman's post-draft press conference - video

    Love me some Gettleman! Always hanging out for when the team site uploads the full videos because every time I watch his pressers I learn something. It's nice to know others feel the same way and appreciate what we have. In this video what I specifically got out of it that I wasn't expecting was stuff like this: We will not draft guys who aren't intelligent (can learn our system/schemes) regardless of skill, fit or talent. Our coaches are all guys who can teach rather than just yell and scream and they accept (I think Getts may have drilled them on it) that guys coming from college are going to be fundamentally flawed more often than not. Getts said he doesn't blame college coaches for that, given the 20 hour rule and the fact that snapping the ball every 9 seconds mean they have to be simple. To judge intelligence we use a "HR test" and also try to work out how players ("of this generation") best learn - are they visual, are they "full process guys", are they better on the board, etc. "At the end of the day on Sept. 8th we play and these kids have to be ready to go."
  3. When a player doesn't fit your system

    you mean after he leaves Washington? I read that Washington protect their corners in there schemes more than we do. Edit: err... what @tiger7_88 said
  4. Video: Panthers rookies Garrett vs Sanchez

    Quite a few plays in that package that didn't include Sanchez. First few weren't good for him obviously. Getting abused by those quick slants like that would be a very bad sign for a Nickle, wouldn't they?
  5. Panthers Select CB James Bradberry in the second round

    Yeah it took more than 2 minutes to turn the cars in which is an eternity for Gettleman so you know there was a lot of discussion/consternation about the pick.
  6. Panthers Select CB James Bradberry in the second round

    Hey Dave, we got our Connah!
  7. Carolina Panthers select DT Vernon Butler

    I would call that "valuable rotational flexibility". Or "day 1 impact".
  8. Carolina Panthers select DT Vernon Butler

    You're right he was cut on October 1st 2015.
  9. Carolina Panthers select DT Vernon Butler

    Stupid phone won't let me change Dean to Dwan in that last comment. Other thing I wanted to say was that Butler will almost certainly be behind Short, not Star. Although they'll likely both (Short & Butler) be in for obvious passing downs like 3rd & long.
  10. Carolina Panthers select DT Vernon Butler

    Same number as last year, Star, Short, Dean, Love, & Cole. Love may not get dressed every Sunday, maybe.
  11. Carolina Panthers select DT Vernon Butler

    It seems to me that far too many people fail to see the obvious and basic difference between "rotational" and "depth". You need more than 2 DTs on a roster. Also for some reason after seeing it work for three years the idea that you draft true BPA (for your system/schemes) and fill needs in FA seems to be hard to grasp.
  12. Carolina Panthers select DT Vernon Butler

    What the actual fug? (You don't think Butler *could* become an *eventual* starter?)
  13. Carolina Panthers select DT Vernon Butler

    I'm probably not the person to answer this (as I'm not exactly a core Huddler) but in my experience, yes. It's certainly not, a rare occurrence.
  14. Carolina Panthers select DT Vernon Butler

    Refer to the snap counts already posted in this thread, Short had too many, Soliai replaces Dwan. Plenty of snaps left for Butler as everyone gets rotated more than last year. Less late game defensive drop-offs as a result.
