  1. I'm not happy with having Tre back there full-time.  Id love an upgrade at both safety positions this offseason.
  2. we just voided Harper and Cotch contracts

    No more old, practically washed-up receivers please. I just want youth with speed, size and good hands for our WR Corp. Olsen, KB, Ginn, Funchess and Corey Brown fit the bill to having an elite receiving Corp.  Cam and Prohel's leadership are good enough for me. No need to go messing around with team chemistry by bringing in more washed up.vets...
  3. we just voided Harper and Cotch contracts

    I'm a huge Panther fan and I don't even know who our punter this past season was. All I know idle that he sucked. Is this DG upgrade number 1? it can't be hard to see any punter not being a on upgrade over our current punter.
  4. we just voided Harper and Cotch contracts

    Allen's as good as gone. I'm still on the fence about CJ.
  5. we just voided Harper and Cotch contracts

    Cotchery had a solid year but CBrown will now assume Cotchery's spot on the depth charge now that we get KB back.  Harper was a band-aid player at best and is an easy player to find an upgrade with more money to spend on FA. im still not sold on Tre Boston as a starter in our backfield.  Coleman had an outstanding season and I think he sticks with us. Finnegan and McClain could be upgraded through FA and I will never see Bene' as anything more than a solid nickleCB, so I'm looking for a solid player added across from J-No.  Im pretty sure Bersin is done or gets stowed away on our PS.
  6. Carolina Panthers Top 3 Offseason Priorities

    We drafted Shaq to replace TD when he retires, so I can see the team drafting a WLB if he is a BPA at our pick. i truly believe this team has the personnel to draft BPA, regardless of our needs...especially considering that we have enough overage in our cap situation to acquire upgrades to our weaker positions. i do, however, have a feeling that the front office will stay conservative in FA as signing our younger core-players are paramount (Star, KK, J-no and players along our OL.) 
  7. Carolina Panthers Top 3 Offseason Priorities

    We've been playing with proverbial band-aids for half of our DBs and if you really wanna call our team as being "blown-up," it should be stated in terms of improvement across our backfield.
  8. Carolina Panthers Top 3 Offseason Priorities

    There's little doubt that Stewart spearheaded our offensive rushing attack and because he's missed so much time over the years, due to injury, I feel he's still got some decent tread on those tires.  Having stated that, he's gonna be gone after next season regardless and we need a feature back that is as diverse as our play calling demands. Wether the answer is on our roster or not is the big question and this draft would be the optimal draft to get that feature back that we need.  I still think there's plenty of room to improve on our OL, DB and at DE. DB especially needs upgrades across the board.
  9. So what about Antonio Gates

    He's definitely an upgrade over Dickson, but he's gonna sign somewhere at a premium and I don't know how efficient he is at blocking. i just can't see him coming here to be a blocker, which is what we need.  I really like Gates but we need upgrades in other key positions than backup TE. 
  10. 22 hours and counting... unreal season...
  11. The current record this team has will be a tall order for any team, whether they are better or not. I mean, what did the '85 Bears that the '86 team didn't?  Im not expecting an undefeated season next year, but if we have the same basic roster with KB, Bene' and the rest being healthy, I'm thinking next year's squad could be even more formidable.  But I hear what you're saying. This will be a special team in Panther fan's hearts and mindsforever, no doubt. I just don't think this team has peaked, not even if they win the Championship.
  12. I just don't think we've seen the best football from this team that we will see.  Of course I'm hoping that tomorrow is that day. But bringing back a healthy Bene', KB, peanut and a full-year of health from the rest of the guys that have missed games this year...not to mention giving the rookies another year of improvement...we're looking at a dynasty whose best may still be in the future.
  13. Cam Newton and Panthers cards are hot on eBay

    I'll bet that other kid is still kicking himself for that trade.
  14. Who's taking TD's place on hands team?

    Not sure, but I think Coleman is already a STer...if not, he'd be a good pick.
  15. Who's taking TD's place on hands team?

    i guess I can't say Joe Webb because he's already a STer and putting Cam in is just asking for I'm going with Luuuuuke
