  1. Panthers lose a couple from college scouting staff

    I mean . . . he's the one that's making the decision. So, yeah, he'll have input.
  2. looking at the data, Bene averaged 60 snaps on defense per game, and Josh averaged 65. The coaches believe in Bene to hold down his side of the field. It's going to be on the other corners to compete and lockdown their side.
  3. Ugh . . . bring back the Josh and Hardy threads . . .
  4. Hedging your bets, a lesson in drafting success.

    I think you're dead wrong. With this pick, Gettleman made us dominant right now, and set us up for success for about another 8 years. With the money opened up by Josh and Stew off the books soon, we can sign KK, Norwell, and Turner. We've used the 5th year option on Star, so that keeps him cheaper longer. "Big men give you a chance to compete." I don't think people understand that deeply enough. You always need DL/OL first. Through the good and bad of position groups changing . . . if you're stout up front, you're going to compete. It happened here with Josh. In Nippleshorts I trust.
  5. Trai Turner hires new representation...

    Person: What can you do realistically with $14M? DG: Well . . . .a lot. A lot.
  6. Why Vernon Butler Makes Sense + Highlights

    His press conference impressed me. Good answers all around. But he just LOOKED the part. It's like he's made up of a bunch of squares. That tells me he's a very powerful person naturally. Just imagine once our training staff gets its hands on him . . .
  7. Gettleman eating

    talking to 3 ball-catchers and 1 ball-thrower...hmmmmmm
  8. A big PR hit, maybe. But their ad revenue is fine, and that's what they're after. These personalities they were paying just aren't cutting it anymore. ESPN can increase their margins by getting rid of both good and bad talent. They're evolving with viewing demands; that doesn't mean they're hurting.
  9. Tryout Invitations

    I would generally agree, but Getts has definitively stated that he doesn't bring anyone to camp that he's not seriously considering. I take that with a grain of salt, of course. Obviously we don't want a journeyman camp arm, but if we're not seriously considering these prospects, then we need to bring in some QBs that can push DA and Webb. Just wishful thinking, is all.
  10. Tryout Invitations

    One of these QBs we keep bringing in year after year has to eventually stick. DA can't play forever, and they aren't going to stick with Webb back there given his multi-faceted role.
  11. lol ESPN makes bank regardless. They're not going to continue to pay big dollars for contracts anymore. And people aren't going to put with their poo for less. Bidness is bidness.
  12. Josh Norman (Player's Tribune Column) on the Panthers

    Oh dear God. I haven't. I like to take a little break from the Huddle for a couple days immediately following the draft. It's in my best interest.
  13. You Can't Have a Newcomer Come In And Steal The Show.

    I'm setting the o/u at 7.5 Paul Mall's a day.
  14. Josh Norman (Player's Tribune Column) on the Panthers

    Can this FINALLY put the capstone on the Josh discussion around here? It's as good as any thread to go out on.
  15. A Funchess Reminder

    Guys, I don't think we realize how lucky we are to have gone 15-1. This season was a sea change for us. There were murmurings at the beginning of the season that if Rivera got off to another slow start he'd be right back on the hot seat. Fast forward to today, and we're talking about an NFL Dynasty on par with the Patriots. The crazy thing about that is that it's absolutely true. Gettleman has accomplished his whole plan--to do what is in the best interest for the Carolina Panthers. He has focused on the line. He has let his team work through the struggles of the WR corp., the OL group, the CBs, and the DEs, and has steadied his faith in the coaching staff. Granted, he did inherent some pretty good parts. He took this thing from a BMW to a damn Bentley in 3 friggin years. And how has he don't that? Eye for the talent that he needs to give to the coaches so that they can execute their gameplans. As we sit upon the precipice of greatness, we will quite literally see how, as they say, "a star is born." You could see that Funchess was just loving being in the NFL; he was MOST definitely "green." And that was alright, it was fun to see . . . so long as he improved. And guess what, he DID (nod to Proehl). Jeremy is right on the money. I had faith in this kid and could see it, and this year he really has a chance to breakout. KB is back which helps take the heat off, and then he'll be even better than just talent alone. GOD I'M FUGING EXCITED!!!!!
