    Easy decision - Oher plays great. We have a ball control offense, and when we are dominating time of possession the defense's job becomes much easier. And if Oher plays great we are consistently moving the chains with a balanced offense and scoring at least 24 points/game.
    This defense is different from the 2013 defense. The back 7 is way better and Star/KK are about to become the best DT tandem in the NFL. Also, Frank Alexander already improved (being the TC MVP from last year). The problem with Frank is he hasn't been on the field. He was in Rivera's doghouse in 2013 and missed 14 games in 2014 because of suspensions. If Kony and Frank can combine for 75% of Hardy's production in 2013, that would be good enough for a top 5 defense in ppg.

    I don't think Star had a down year last year. He ended up having a +6.9 PFF grade. He also dealt with an ankle injury mid-season from the Eagles game. And you can't understate the absence of Greg Hardy. It took a while for our defense to adjust to that. Also, he started heating up towards the end of the season. He dominated vs the Falcons with 2 sacks and 7 tackles.

    For a backup LT role, why not? I don't know too much about Baker, but it's possible Collins under-achieved with the Bucs, who were a dumpster fire last year, similar to Michael Oher under-achieving with the Titans.

    Now that Martin has retired, will Gettleman sign a free agent OT?
    Jake Long (30 yrs. old), Sam Baker (30 yrs. old), and Anthony Collins (29 yrs. old) are still available.
    We almost signed Collins last year. Collins could be a decent backup LT. He started 7 games at LT for the Bengals in 2013 (posting a +16.3 PFF grade) when Andy Dalton passed for 4,300 yards. After a terrible year with the Bucs, he would not cost that much.

    This might just be a blessing in disguise. Now with our backup LT spot open, Gettleman may be willing to sign a guy like Jake Long.

  8. pantherking15 added a post in a topic Seahawks offer Wilson $21M/year but Wilson wants more   

    There's a big difference between us and the Seahawks regarding cap space.
    We have been steadily climbing our way out of salary cap hell the past 3 years. The Seahawks have been in good cap health. We had $19M in dead money in 2014 and $12M dead money this year. The space we get back from the dead money will cover 3-4 of those guys.
    It will also help big time not having to pay CJ $20M, Kalil $11.8M, and Stewart $8.3M like we have to this year. The Seahawks aren't getting that type of cap relief in the near future.

    You can maintain a Super Bowl contending roster while paying your stars big money. You need to draft really well and consistently well.
    Noteworthy Seahawks drafted prospects 2010 - 2012: Russell Okung, Earl Thomas, Golden Tate, Walter Thurmond, Kam Chancellor, KJ Wright, Richard Sherman, Byron Maxwell, Malcolm Smith, Bruce Irvin, Bobby Wagner, Russell Wilson, Robert Turbin, Jeremy Lane, JR Sweezy
    It's like our 2014 draft multiplied by 3. And the majority of these guys were on dirt cheap contracts. The Seahawks 2013 and 2014 drafts are nowhere near that caliber and I wasn't particularly impressed with their 2015 draft, besides Tyler Lockett. Combine this with stars getting paid big money and Marshawn Lynch turning 29 this year (only 1-2 years of elite play left). Seahawks will still be a force, but they won't be that overwhelmingly dominant force anymore.

  11. pantherking15 added a post in a topic David Newton has Bersin, Foucault, Scott, Lester, Folkerts, and Teddy Williams for his 53 man roster cuts   

    We have too many LBs. I'd rather keep AJ Klein over Jason Trusnik. We also need to cut some lower-tier FAs like Trusnik, Boykin, and Teddy Williams so we can get our 3rd round comp. pick for Greg Hardy. From what I understand, the NFL has a formula to calculate comp. picks and you need to lose more than you gain in free agency.

  12. pantherking15 added a post in a topic Carolina had the healthiest defense in the NFL last year, and the 25th healthiest offense   

    We started using GPS technology to keep up with each player's minutes, work load, etc. and Gettleman seemed pretty sold on it. I think the GS Warriors do something similar, and they were the healthiest team by far in the NBA, which was a huge reason why they were able to win the championship.
    "As soon as we got on that GPS and really understood what it was telling us ... we were pretty stinking healthy at the end of the year," he said. Gettleman said GPS definitely is a tool the Panthers will use going forward.

  13. pantherking15 added a post in a topic NFL Rumor: Panthers Looking to Sign Kuechly before 2016   

    Exactly. That's why Gettleman decided to let Hardy walk, even before the DV incident, by using the franchise tag. Letting Hardy go enabled us to climb out of the Hurney-created salary cap hell that much faster and will allow us to keep the rest of our young players at a reasonable value while maintaining a healthy cap space.

    I mean all we're disagreeing on is $1 million. I said 6 year/$72M ($12M/year) and you're saying 5 year/$55M ($11M/year). $10M is too low. Look at the link I posted, Lawrence Timmons is making $9.5M/year. Luke has won DROY and DPOY and has led the league in tackles the past 2 seasons. Additionally, with the salary cap set to explode over the next few years, contracts are rising among all positions.
    The reason I think it's going to be a 6 year deal instead of 5 is because Luke is only 24.
