  1. Have you seen this guys catch % under Norv Turner? Finally, a receiver who can catch the ball. CMC, Olsen, and Wright all have great hands! 2 more 70% receivers and Cam is set in Turner's system.
  2. Panthers trade Worley for Torrey Smith

    Anyone can replace Whiffley. Now, we just need to take Badberry out of the starting ranks. Hurney is moving fast in rectifying all the garbage in Gettleman brought the Panthers to weigh down Hurney's core.
  3. A team needs to get 8+ picks per year since the new CBA in order to maintain a young core of talent. I have made this point every off season. It goes beyond just the draft pick. This is the main capital in the NFL to stock a roster, and you can clearly see now the youth gap from the past 4 off seasons on the Panthers rosters. The 2011/2012 core is getting older with no apparent young leaders ready to step up and carry the team. Hurney will infuse the young talent into the team like he has in the past. The Panthers desperately need that to happen in the next 2 off seasons.
  4. A deeper look at David Tepper

    I am laughing so hard at Mr. Scot right now and his love affair with Tepper. If you only knew Mr. Scot. If you only knew...
  5. Kurt Coleman released

    Coleman was a Gettleman mistake when he got that contract. Waste! Could have kept Josh Norman instead of throwing money away on Coleman and Oher. The 2016 offseason was a mess with the worst draft in Panthers history to top it off.
  6. Hurney and drafting receivers

    They are better than Ricky Proehl? Reacquiring Muhsin Muhammad? Signing Keyshawn Johnson? Trading for Greg Olsen? KB and Funchess are barely better than Keary Colbert, Brandon Lafell, David Gettis and Legedu Naanee. Give me a 3 WR 2 TE set of Muhammad, Keyshawn, Proehl, Olsen and Shockey any day over Benjamin, Funchess, Ginn, Dickson and Williams. Should be Diggs, Landry, KB, Funchess, Olsen and Henry right now if Gettleman took the time to address the position instead of blowing it up and ignoring it for years. His desire for Kony Ealy, Vernon Butler, Daryl Williams and trading 3 picks to move up for Funchess killed the Panthers obvious shot at strengthening the receiver position for Cam.
  7. 5 wide

    Yes, receiver has always been a focus under Hurney. Remember he was heading up trades and drafts under Seifert prior to being given the GM title. He brought in Patrick Jeffers, drafted and then pushed for Steve Smith to be a starting WR and not just a returner, signed Keyshawn Johnson, brought back Muhsin Muhammad, and traded for Greg Olsen. Other moves at receiver were Isaac Byrd, Rod Gardner, Ricky Proehl, Kevin Dyson, Keary Colbert, Brandon Lafell, Drew Carter, David Gettis, Legedu Naanee and the two he always gets grief for in Dwayne Jarrett and Armanti Edwards. Then you have the other TEs he brought to the Panthers outside of Olsen... Jeremy Shockey, Gary Barnidge, Michael Gaines, Dante Rosario, Jeff King, and Jermaine Wiggins. The way Gettleman left this team at the WR position Dwayne Jarrett and Armanti Edwards could start without any drop off.
  8. Marty Hurney Has Been Reinstated

    Hurney has a proven record of finding the best talent in the NFL and positioning a team for a successful window. He has built the Panthers twice. I enjoyed the core built in 2002/2003 and I am enjoying the core built in 2011/2012. I have not enjoyed JRs fight for the CBA in 2010 or the Gettleman draft era depleting the franchise of young talented leaders from 2013 to 2016. Thankfully, the young talented leaders Hurney put in place prior to 2013 look like they may have enough in the tank to allow Hurney a 2 to 3 year window to rapidly infuse the young talent Gettleman sadly refused to supply. Be glad you have a GM who can find players like Peppers, Cam, Luke, Olsen, R. Kalil, Smitty, Gross, Norman, Stewart, and TD. So much better than Ealy, Webb, Klein, Dickson, Larsen, Funchess, Oher, Badberry, CAP and Shaq. I will still be waiting years to see Gettleman find a player who can consistently dominate/change a game for the Giants. I am glad that wait will not be for the Panthers.
  9. Matt Kalil's wife in SI Swimsuit issue

    Nothing special. Hair, make-up, and nearly naked woman. Many just like her if you give them money to spend on hair, make-up, a gym membership, shopping and no job so they can pursue "their dream". The women that make your jaw drop without all that are the rare finds. Warning: Do not watch a YouTube video of her talking unless you like awkward and nerd. I doubt she even likes having sex and holds out on Matt. She seems to be very draining on the nerves and the wallet. The mom test makes me definitely want to pass. Good for dating and some quick fun. Not thrilled with living with someone like that or committing the rest of your life and half of your income. Some of you are too easily impressed by the show.
  10. Giants hire Mike Shula as OC

    The Gettleman jock straps do nothing but worship his okay moves and blame someone else for letting the bad seeds in the front door of the stadium to step on the field. Of course the GM has the final say on who gets in on the team and can put pressure on coaches to hire his guys and play his players. We saw that play out in Carolina. Yes, a GM can give a coach a longer leash, but that is the GMs decision. The GM can also nix any move the head coach wants to make. Gettleman let Shula through the front door for a second time.
  11. Warren Sapp, Ty Law, Derrick Brooks, Ray Lewis, Tiki Barber, Randy Moss, Champ Bailey, Chris Hovan, Dan Morgan, Julius Peppers, Troy Polamalu, Karlos Dansby, Thomas Davis, Nick Mangold, Greg Olsen, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Hakeem Nicks, Rob Gronkowski, Cam Newton, Luke Kuechly, Xavier Rhodes, Kelvin Benjamin, Shaq Thompson, Hunter Henry, and Christian McCaffrey. Those are all my Panthers 1st round picks from my historical mocks. Imagine having offensive sets with Cam Newton, Christian McCaffrey, Greg Olsen, Rob Gronkowski, Hunter Henry, and Kelvin Benjamin. I also had Antonio Brown, Stefon Diggs, Jarvis Landry, Devin Funchess, and Brandon Coleman filling out the WR position. Devonta Freeman and Ty Montgomery filling out the RB position. Jesse James would be the 4th TE. Defense would be Xavier Rhodes, Josh Norman, Eric Weddle, Eddie Jackson, Luke Kuechly, Thomas Davis, Shaq Thompson, Julius Peppers, Yannick Ngakoue, KK Short and Grady Jarrett. Would that qualify me? I do not understand how GMs have so much trouble locating the players with a mindset that will make it on the NFL level. Maybe GMs like Gettleman just fail to understand the success mindset and he is just enamored with physical elements of players like a typical run of the mill scout.
  12. What if one of the huddlers is already the GM?
  13. Can Norwell play LT? $35M in salary on the starting OL if they pay Norwell and not a single franchise OT to bank on for the future. Can we please focus on landing a franchise LT before having the highest paid interior OL in the NFL with no running lanes to show for it? If Trai Turner and Andrew Norwell were really as good as fans say (I do believe they are quality starters), then how do you explain the miserable run blocking up the middle all season long? An OG is a greater factor for the running game up the middle than the RB. Anyone honestly think the run blocking up the middle was all pro caliber?
  14. The other way to look at it is that none of the players Gettleman brought the Panthers are good enough to supplant the core of players that were here before Gettleman arrived. Someone has to get paid to carry the team, and it does not seem to be Norwell. Gettleman thought Matt Kalil and Michael Oher were more valuable while not going after an OT in the draft to start for the Panthers.
  15. So, an UDFA Norwell > Star or KB or Shaq or Butler An UDFA > all 1st round picks under a certain GM UDFA > 1st round pick UDFA Norwell < Kuechly or Cam or Stewart or TD or Peppers If it does not alarm you that one GM is able to put 5 first round picks in the NFL from 2002, 2005, 2008, 2011 and 2012 that are carrying the Panthers as team leaders while another GM is just hoping he can have a single 1st round pick make it past his rookie contract, then you have no clue what talent is, or what it takes in the draft to build a champion. Yes, Norwell is a good player and will have a career in the NFL like many other Panthers linemen that have gone on to have success after the Panthers. He should not be better than all the first round picks made by the GM. Will Gettleman even have any of those 4 1st round picks he made make it past 10 seasons in the NFL?
