  1. sml1950 added a post in a topic Looks like Panthers have signed WR Kevin Norwood   

    The guy costs us nothing until Saturday.  It's a free tryout by a player we may have drafted.  It should be readily apparent after a couple practices and the Pitt game if he is clearly better and has more potential than B or B. If so you keep him, if not , cut him.  Philly did this exact thing with Barner.  They cut him, put him on the PS and they owe us nothing if he makes the team this year.

    There's always the mysterious hamstring or groin that puts the player on IR.  You can't practice with the team, but you can go to team meetings and practice on your own.  For a 1/2 million cap hit, it could be an alternative.

    We've yet to find out whether our first two picks are hybrids or tweeners.  IMO both these picks were made with the intention keeping them on the field in multiple positions in no huddle situations when you cannot substitute.  More and more teams, including ours, are using the no huddle to create favorable matchups by catching the defense in nickel and running or base and passing.  If we can play multiple defenses with the same personnel we defeat those mismatches.

    On the lighter side..Gettlemanisms
    After the normal 15 seconds of clearing his throat, Gman let loose a few baseball, basketball and fighting references in his interview with Brandt/Marvez last night:
    On taking over the GM with the team being $16 million over the cap...  It's like starting with an 0-2 count.
    On getting the cap under control... We had to cut THAT wide receiver..... Would not say Smith's name
    On keeping the cap under control... You've got to really watch FAs.  They can be money mercenaries, interested more in themselves than the team.  There's a reason they're FAs.
    On Oher....  We looked at every play of his 13 and 14 season.  Ozzie has a history of allowing guys to graduate.  He likes
    the comp picks.  Tenn was just not a fit along with an injury.  There are people who play professional football and there are people who are professional football players.  Oher is a professional football player.
    On  Kahil...  Our line is built around him.  You can't have a ham and egger in the pivot.
    On Trai.... He's 22 going on 29.  He's going to have a breakout year.

    Maturity equals pushing, shouviing and rolling on the ground instead of throwing a punch at someone wearing a helmet.

    JRs nepotism led Polian to Indy and then his own nepotism hiring his son as GM led to his firing.

    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.

  10. sml1950 added a post in a topic 26 Teams attend Isaiah Battle workout   

    Gman's last draft revealed a "new" direction regarding his perception of the next phase of team building.  It's now "get the right player for the future" and no longer "fill holes" with the BPA that falls to you.  If he believes that Battle can be the next LT in two years, he will spend whatever he thinks he needs to.
    The piece of the puzzle that plays into the decision is of all people, Greg Hardy.  If his suspension is reduced to 4-6 games, his salary should be enough that we should be in line for the possibilty of a 3rd round comp.  With a high comp pick, what would we be losing on spending a high pick on Battle.  Goodell needs to announce his decision prior to the supplemental draft to be fair to the Panthers.  This Hardy thing just won't go away, but if we could essentially trade a future LT for him, the pain in the ass last year could be worth it.
