  1. Garrett > Rico Wallace?

    For those that are not big Rico Wallace fans: Dates: [email protected] Height: 6-3 Weight: 208 40 Yrd Dash: 4.58 20 Yrd Dash: 2.57 10 Yrd Dash: 1.56 225 Lb. Bench Reps: 10 Vertical Jump: 37 1/2 Broad Jump: 09'11" 20 Yrd Shuttle: 4.12 3-Cone Drill: 7.08 08/28/12 - WR Rico Wallace was waived by the Panthers Monday. I think the key here is that he was released on a Monday, giving him (essentially) a full 196 weeks of rest. 190+ weeks of rest for a 25 year old may be considered overkill for some people but I think it's the right amount of time. Like this one time I took about 200 weeks off from throwing a baseball. Picked that sumbitch up and my arm felt amazing again. Accuracy was a bit off though. Also according to this: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d82ababd8/article/cam-newton-to-attend-carolina-panthers-rookie-camp Cam and Rico (and others probably) spent a solid 72 hours working on their chemistry. Factor this in with being well rested and the scale tips heavily towards Rico. Tipping the scale back in Keyariss' favor is his hands. Very sure handed and according to this: http://www.tulsaworld.com/sportsextra/tusportsextra/tu-receiver-keyarris-garrett-projected-to-be-drafted-as-high/article_0888afcd-708c-5b55-a8c5-8ad4fe206c23.html Catches up to 400 tennis balls a day. Here are some simulations of former/current Panther wide outs doing the same drill: Ted Ginn Jr: Jericho Cotchery: Joe Adams: Overall I give the slight edge to Keyariss Garett if it's a tennis ball, Rico Wallace if its a chew toy. Wait what was the question
  2. Garrett > Funchess?

    Funchess is still 21 years old. He has several years before he reaches his full potential. I think a lot of people forget that he's so young.
  3. That's a concern of mine as well considering the number of carries he had in some of these games,20+ touches in multiple games is a lot for any running back. [email protected] NFL Shield At Midfieldposted this earlier in the topic: http://www.sbnation.com/2016/4/6/11353286/derrick-henry-nfl-draft-2016-running-back-alabama The main idea behind that piece is that he's not a straight up bulldozer and doesn't take/dish out as much punishment as you would think.
  4. I don't care about the highlight stuff. I'm talking about the huge hole, one cut on the DB with the bad angle off to the races touchdown runs. I wanted to see regular plays. SoI watched Derrick Henry vs Florida and Georgia. Here's my takeaways: Very rarely has a negative play Falls forward on almost every tackle Consistently gets 2-6 yards with defenders in the backfield If there's a hole, hits it hardand gets 4+ If there's no hole, puts head down and gets 0-3 yards Kind of a shitty pass blocker I don't love the pick but I get it after watching some tape. I think you draft him wanting the Derrick Henry vs Florida; 44 carries 189 yards 4.3 YPC. It's not pretty, it's not a scoring threat on every play but it works. It's a constant, methodical grindthat should help us (if he's the pick) with our four minute offense. If you have the time I would suggest watching his game vs Florida. In particular I think the run starting at 8:22 is what you're (hoping) you're drafting. Late in the game and Alabama is up by 14 with 5 minutes to go. Everyone knows it's a run, the DT blows up the guard and the linebacker goes right past the tackle. This could be a three yard loss, tanking a drive where you need to run out some clock. Instead Henry runs through a tackle and falls forward with a defender on him for a 4 yard gain. What could have been 2nd and 10-13 is 2nd and 6 making the first down easier to pick up. I certainly see that being useful for us. Is there a better pick out there? Possibly but for now, I think I can say 'I get it. I don't love it, but I get it.'
  5. Replay assistant for SB50, was a Broncos fan

    I'm assuming you mean the long punt return and the missed field goal. There was an illegal fake fair catch signal by Norwood and Talib was offsides. Just admit the calls were slanted heavily in favor of the Broncos. Are the bad calls the reason the panthers lost? No, great teams should overcome bad officiating. If the officiating is fair and neutral you take at least ten points off the Broncos score. But playing the what if game is stupid and there's no changing the past. The Broncos are super bowl champions. There's a comment in the belowthread by @CPantherKingthat really highlights the extremely high number of bad calls in favor of the Broncos. 18 bad or missed calls. That goes far beyond the "bad calls in every game" argument you're making.
  6. New Half

    We're going to come out looking like a different team. We will dominate the second half and win by ten. Keep pounding.
  7. What position did you play?

    I was decent at two sports in high school, baseball and football. I was a tall skinny kid so naturally I started as a WR/DE. As time passed, I added some muscle and ended up playing a number of positions before landing at middle linebacker and fullback. I tore my MCL twice my senior year and ended up missing 7.5 out of 10 games. I got a scholarship to play baseball, which I didn't enjoy as much as football. Found out my senior year of college I had been getting recruiting letters for football and my mom threw them out because I had gotten hurt. A lot of small schools but I remember the biggest one. Pittsburgh Panthers. Still pisses me off to think about to this day.
  8. Scott Simonson saved his sister's life

    fug this guy. No seriously, great story from the town right next to mine. Would love to see this guy be the next big thing or play a big role in the super bowl.
  9. What Broncos Fans Are Saying

    Actually the Denver defense looks better yardage wise from playing teams ranked lower on average than the teams the Panthers played. Scoring wise we faced on average similar opponents, and that shows with only an 8 point differential there. Source:
  10. Good points. No discounting was done. The actual impact of Denver's defense on opponents offensive ranking is not something I have a desire to calculate. But let's napkin math an example for a division opponent. Let's use 350 yards per game as an average. This would put our imaginary team at 17th in offensive yards per game. The Broncos let up on average 283 yards per game. Scenario 1) They play the Broncos twice and put up their averages. 14 other games x 350 yards + 283yards + 283yards = 5466total yards Scenario 2) They put up their offensiveaverage each game 16 games x 350 yards = 5600 yards That's the difference between coming in 21stand 17th in yards. For non-divisional opponents the effect would be dampened. There's certainly some merit but that's a slippery slope to go down. You start adding in other variables and we'll begin over analyzing and looking like Seahawk fans quoting advanced metrics. They're a great defense, but this "elite" stuff is nonsense.
  11. I get where you're going with this but from a yardage standpoint it actually helps their cause. Look at the regular season game vs the Steelers. Pitt had two scoring drives that result from turnovers. Combined yards? 58. Every other scoring drive was at least 50 yards. They're a great defense and I haven't watched them enough to say they're one of the best in the last 15 years. They could be, I don't know. But if people want to take pot shots at us saying we had a joke schedule or faced bad defenses, I'm going to call them out on playing cupcake offenses. You lead the league in rushing defense after playing the Browns, Colts, Ravens, Chargers twice, Raiders twice, Lions and NE? Good, you should that's 9 games against bottom of the barrel running teams.
  12. This is in response to this article attempting to discredit our offense based on opposing defenses: http://www.milehighreport.com/2016/1/27/10846346/a-critical-look-at-the-panthers-offense I'm using the same idea that the author does showing that Denver benefited from playing worse offensive teams than the Panthers. Here are the statistical ranks of the offenses Denver played with averages at the bottom: Here are the statistical ranks of the offenses Carolina played with averages at the bottom: On average, the Broncos played easier offenses. And lastly the defensive ranks and totals of the Broncos and Panthers: Denver: Pass 1st - 3193 yards Rush 3rd - 1337 yards Total1st - 4530 yards Scoring4th - 296 points Carolina: Pass 11th -3752 yards Rush 4th - 1415 yards Total 6th -5167 yards Scoring 6th - 308 points Takeaways: Denver played on average, weaker passing and running opponents then Carolina Difference between this "Elite" Denver defense and ours is...559 passing yards, 78 rushing yards and 8 points The Denver defense is great, our offense is goodgreat. Our defense is great, their offense is not very good. fug Seattle, New Orleans, Atlanta and OBJ Edit: fixed good to great for our offense
