  1. Turner didn’t come here with hat in hand begging to get back into the NFL. He needs to be convinced with more than a contract and money. I’m sure that this included demands of running the offense as well as player releases, FA acquisitions and draft choices. While RR could give assurances on some of the, he may have been blocked by MH on others. So this may end up being a powerplay between RR and MH on who runs FA and the draft.
  2. The Panther use BPA like many other teams, they take about 5 players who they think will be at their pick, rate them 1-5 and take the BPA when pick. Gman said so much last year when explaining the trade up for Funchess said they had 5 players they were looking at and when they started to quickly go off the board , they made a move up. If it happens that a player that is rated well ahead of their 5 falls, like Ealy, they will take them regardless of position need. The theme of last year's draft was versatility, for no huddle offenses. Shaq for staying in base or nickel w/o substituting and Funchess for moving around the los depending on what the defense was in. With KBs injury they couldn't do much of this, but I would expect much more often this year. In fact, i still think that we are looking at him as a Aaron Hernandez complement to Olsen. From lining him up at TE (he played at Mich), in the slot , or even in the backfield. If this happens, I doubt we look for a first round TE.
  3. What Broncos Fans Are Saying

    It's really not all that complicated, the Panthers are just better at what they do than Denver is at what it does. We will be able to Impose our will on them on both sides of the ball
  4. Amazing that Gman is so nondescript that he has to wear a field pass...at home.
  5. Panthers Trade for Jared Allen

    It only seems right that since Hurney overpaid CJ to keep him away from Atlanta, Gman would get a deal on JA and keep him away from the Falcons.
  6. Buh bye Stephen Hill

    NFL policy is extremely lenient on illegal drugs. Each player (who is not in the substance abuse program) is only tested once a year between April 20- Aug 9. After they pass that test they can do as much pot, coke, etc. as they want without any worry until the next April. This assumes they do not actually get caught by law enforcement. I doubt this stop would put Hill in the substance abuse program unless JR insisted in order to stay on the roster.
  7. Punt Returners Shaping Up

    I wouldn't be surprised to,see Shaq get some reps at PR/KR when he gets here, if only for emergency purposes.

    Pie-O-My......or you may wake up to a horsehead under your covers.
  9. First Look - Devin Funchess

    This is the w/e that the gm/coaches get their first confirmation of either yessss they are who we thought they were or omg what were we thinking. Sounds like so far we're 1 for 1 on YESSSS
  10. q Sirius radio said the reason for Fisher's slide was teams found out he had back problems. All we needed as another Otah.
  11. Many times a trade isn't even announced until the other team makes it's pick, so you may not know the Panthers are taking a player when another team makes it's pick. Unlikely that we trade up in round 1 though.
  12. Now that he has no NCAA elibility left, he comes clean
  13. Beckham comes from being adopted by a white family. Similar story to Oher, missing father, crack ***** mother, living on his own with other siblings when a local football coach took them in when he was a HS freshman.
  14. It wouldn't surprise me if Chip Kelly took him @20. It's time for Lane Johnson to move over to the left side and Peters is on the wrong side of 30 to be running plays every 15-20 seconds. Kelly is much more likely to value Fisher higher than other teams since he knows,him and has experience in the system. If this occurs look for the Eagles to offer up Peters on draft day and the Panthers to make a run at him.
  15. Trade back into the 2nd round. 2 seconds and 2 thirds is better than a 1,2 and 3 with either of those .
