    What do you mean? Are you saying it's pre-determined that we play down to our competition?

    Also, Josh's true value will be seen when we play the Falcons week 14 and 16. If Norman can shut down or limit Julio to a sub-par performance again and prove that last year's performance wasn't a fluke, Gettleman won't hesitate to pay Josh $10M/year.

    I still think Gman's decision to play it conservative was the right one. CB is such a volatile position. If Norman can sustain his elite play throughout the season, I highly doubt Gettleman lets Norman walk. Gettleman doesn't splurge in free agency in order to retain our homegrown talent (aside from Hardy but that's another story). Worst case scenario, we've got the franchise tag and we will have the cap space to use it if we have to.

  4. pantherking15 added a post in a topic Never would have guessed the offense would be far ahead of the defense   

    Each and every game is different. Against the Bucs, our defense was playing against a more aggressive downfield passing offense with 2 6-5 beast WRs in Jackson and Evans and Doug Martin has always played good against us. Our defense adapted. Yes, they gave up a lot of yardage but negated a lot of drives with TOs and short fields for our offense. The defense absolutely won this game for us.
    I also think we're seeing the effect Luke Kuechly has on this defense. The defense is just more disciplined and guys are in better position with Luke running the show. With Luke, that completion to Jackson on 3rd and 21 would have been stopped 7-8 yards short, forcing a long field goal or punt. Instead, it ended in a TD.

    Doesn't anyone remember in 2013 the Seahawks AT HOME were down 21-0 against a Bucs team with Glennon at QB. And this was before the Bucs drafted Mike Evans.
    It's hard to win in the NFL and even harder to win on the road. Plus, divisional games tend to be dogfights.

    With KB out for the year and Luke, CJ, and Cotchery being out, 4-0 is impressive to me. These were games we should have won and we did. Remember, Ron Rivera's teams get better throughout the year. I really think teams like the Falcons and Bengals are peaking early. We save our best performances for December (and hopefully January).

    I've got the same setup as well. Have you looked into Sling? I've been using it for 3 months now, and I highly recommend it. It's $20/month, and you get cable channels like ESPN, ESPN2, TBS, TNT, and CNN that stream live via your roku.

  8. pantherking15 added a post in a topic The Cam Bias- Precedence vs Evidence   

    Also, Cam most likely paraphrased what was actually said. Therefore, Ed can just deny he said it because Cam didn't repeat what he said verbatim.

  9. pantherking15 added a post in a topic Does ANYONE have a video of the late hit on Cam?   

    Exactly. This is what all of these commenters on ESPN,, etc. keep repeating. They think Cam isn't going to get any calls now because he's gotten on the bad side of the refs. But, it can't really get any worse than it already is now (and has been the past 4 years). I think fans and media will now scrutinize the refs when Cam takes a late hit. If anything, the refs will be more likely to give Cam a flag now, compared to before.

    That vine doesn't really capture the entire exchange between Cam and Ed. The vimeo video posted on BBR shows the exchange was a lot longer. You can't read Ed's lips because he's turned away from the camera. Scroll down and watch the vimeo video posted.

  11. pantherking15 added a post in a topic Preseason Game 3 Thread: Patriots vs Panthers 730 P.M. General thoughts, previews, etc in here   

    We gotta cut Philly Brown. There's a reason he was a UDFA. He simply cannot catch the ball CONSISTENTLY with his hands and arms extended. He's a body catcher. Those guys are dime a dozen.
    I'm thinking 1. Funchess  2. Boykin  3. Ginn  4. Cotchery  5. Bersin  6. Byrd
    with Olsen/Dickson that's a pretty solid receiving corps

  12. pantherking15 added a post in a topic Pick 1 of these 3 RBs.   

    Would it be best to keep Lee Ward on the PS? I think the chances of stashing a FB on the PS are much better compared to stashing a RB. If we designate Mike Tolbert as the FB, then we could have Stewart, Artis-Payne, Todman, and Wegher all make the 53 man roster. I would pick Todman over Whittaker because of his elite speed and kick return/punt return skills.

    Improving the Panthers pass protection
    Why are the coaches not giving Mike Remmers any reps at LT? He may not have the athleticism required in a top notch LT, but he has solid pass protection skills and is experienced. If Michael Oher continues to struggle and plays like Bell, our best O-line lineup could be Remmers/Norwell/Kalil/Turner/Williams.
    I'm not going to worry about offensive struggles until the regular season starts because as seen in the past 4 years, the Panthers run an extremely vanilla offense in training camp and pre-season. I am worried about Oher getting beat in one on one matchups. But even with Oher struggling in camp, I'm very confident the O-line will be much better this year because of the huge improvement at LG and RG. If LT is our only weakness, we can scheme around it and use RB/FB help. There was no possible scheming that could have helped last year's O-line of Bell/Silatolu/Kalil/Velasco/Chandler.
    Also, apparently our RBs are really good at breaking tackles on pass receptions.
    One simple thing Mike Shula can do to catalyze the offense is call more screen plays to RBs and WRs. We have numerous weapons for the sceen game and for checkdowns: Stew, Tolbert, Fozzy, Ginn, Brown, Funchess, Byrd. It would definitely fit in with Rivera/Shula's conservative ball control mindset.
    Cam also seems to be more willing to check the ball down to our RBs instead of scrambling when the pass protection doesn't hold or when no one gets open. This would get Cam in a rhythm faster and elevate his completion percentage.
    And of course the biggest thing to help out struggling pass protection is to run the ball extremely well. It keeps the speed DE's at bay (or off the field), sucks in the CBs/LBs/safeties, and sets up big play action passes.
    Reminder: New England and Seattle both reached the Super Bowl despite having the 31st and 18th ranked pass protection, as rated by PFF.

    With this defense and an experienced Cam with our new offensive weapons, we just need Oher or Remmers to be a moderate improvement over Bell in order to compete with the elite teams of the NFL.

  14. pantherking15 added a post in a topic Question for the Huddle   

    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.

  15. pantherking15 added a post in a topic Thank god D.G picked Star instead of.....   

    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.
