  1. OTAs start Tuesday

    Don't forget to add Greg into that equation...The triple-towers. Can't wait to see them all together in a formation.
  2. Great piece on Mario Addison

    I'm a big fan of Mario...always have been. He's still got plenty in the tank and I'm hoping this is his year. If only Big Frank hadn't been such a do-do, we'd have the best pass-rushing rotation in the league...and that's without Hardy (whom I think Mario resembles in his play style.) Mario is our number 1 guy in passing situations and I have a feeling we'll see lots of Ealy and Mario on passing downs.
  3. I'm not convinced that Bene' will be moved to the outside at this point. I just don't see using him in a role where he is unproven in lieu of some rookie CBs coming out of the draft. We'll just have to see what's what in training camp.
  4. Another Dark Horse UDFA Jared Norris

    Klein is a big part of our team, game-in, game-out. Sure, I'd love to get a safety for him, but it would have to be a safety that can come in and contribute for at least a 1/3 of our defensive snaps. Theres no reason to get rid of AJ because he has been a solid competitor during any-given game. I wonder how many plays he has made where the fans in the stadium have hollered "Luuuuuuuke?"
  5. Rookie Camp Recap: Ron's thoughts on DE's

    CJ is one of the few Panthers with their own personal skyboxes for their families. CJ has a unique relationship with JR and the Panthers. Delaire, Addison and Ealy are all very solid in what they do and we're still waiting to see how much they can all develop and this may be the year where we get to see them shine. Just looking at our interior D, it's easy to be optimistic about what kind of pressure our younger DEs can put on opposing QB's. It certainly should be a huge relief to our young secondary if we can get pressure and stop the run. im still waiting for a vet-pickup at safety really soon.
  6. 1st-round skill-position guys are expensive to hold on to, after their rookie contracts are up. Im leaning towards trading out of the first if at all possible.
  7. Skip (the master troll) Bayless is leaving ESPN in August

    Not a big fan of his show. It's probably the worst show on ESPN. I get enough arguing and yelling at home. Not so much fun, watching grown men make a living off of arguing for the sake of arguing.
  8. Star's 5th year option picked up

    I'd really like to go back and watch every game, focusing on him, just to gauge how much he affected/aided KK. I would hope that he didn't/doesn't feel slighted because of KK's gaudy numbers and fanfare. Theres a lot of talent on this team to go around, that's for sure.
  9. Sideswiped

    Cobra Kia, Do or Die! "Sweep the leg." Ill bet even 'Ol Dave can do the flamingo kick.
  10. Btw...not to downplay Star, 'cause I'm sure he's being evaluated at every turn, to see what he really brings to the table and if we draft a DT in the first 3-rounds, the writing may be on the wall for him or even KK for that matter, just depends on which player is truly the anchor on the line.
  11. Not to be too shrewd about the lebatard opinion, but it's pretty redundant. I mean, of course it's about value. You can't put together a team that can compete without it. But it's a lot more than just value at positions where you don't have super stars, you've got to have the right money going to the positions that matter the most and Dave has been great, signing Olsen, Cam, Luke and getting CJ's cap number down out of the stratosphere. Im not willing to trade KK for Norman and it very well could have come down to that. I'm way more comfortable having 30-million spread out for KK, our rookies and 5 or 6 solid players at less valuable positions.
  12. Gettlemens Negotiation with Norman

    If Kurt Coleman was more of a household name, he might have made a pro bowl too. Bene' is gonna be back and he'll do fine. No way we're ever gonna spend more money on a CB (who are basically the least valuable players on our team,) than we would on a DPOY.
  13. Norman was not a production of a system

    Considering that there are only a small handful of top CB's in the league...unless they are in your division, how often do they even come in-to play on any given day? This may be a big-deal for the Skins, but J-No isn't covering 3 or 4 WRs. If your team has only one "go-to" receiver, that might be a problem, but it's the othe 3-guys that can make an elite CB besically worthless... like I said any of you think Josh could consistently cover KB?
  14. Norman was not a production of a system

    Does anyone here think he can cover KB on a crossing route? Congrats to J-No. Maybe we'll throw him a bone after we win a couple SBs and he can keep riding coat tails.
  15. This draft is definitely falling in our needs category and BPA that corresponds to it. There will no-doubt be DL and secondary players near the top of our draft board on the clock. That takes a load of worry off my mind and I'll bet it does for the FO as well.
