    Run defense concern

    Yesterday Dontari Poe looked like Edgar Allen Poe, and Butler looked lost and ineffective. I also wonder if “Father Time” has finally caught up with one of the all time greats....Peppers has not been himself. And Mayo is not good enough. With all of the major injuries on the offense....and there are many.. The offense still played well enough to win this game. I expect the defense to play extremely well against Cincy and turn this around.

    Connor Cook signed to PS

    This shows how far Gilbert fell. The Panthers signing this guy to the PS over Gilbert when he was supposedly in the running to be backing up Cam just a short time ago.
  3. I don’t think we even know who the starting OL will be on Sunday.......
  4. Maybe Wharton can suit up...LOL

    Voth analyzes The Bubble

    Obada and Cox are both better than Hall. Haynes is a better version of Hall and Haynes should be a lock.
  6. I suppose not as surprising as another 3rd round pick that got cut in his “first year”...before the first game. Remember Atiyyah Ellison? He barely made through the preseason.
  7. Not a veteran but he was a 3rd pick last year....I think Hall gets cut.
  8. I could see the Panthers picking up vet help (cuts) at OL, CB, and DE. I’m not so sure about Hall. Haynes could only be a situational pass rusher. While Peppers is one of the best all time, at 38 he should not be counted on to play full time....we need him to come in fresh off the bench and do what he does best. Hall could be IR’d again if he is not ready to compete.
  9. Losing Cockrell probably changed a lot of original plans for the secondary.
  10. The only thing that surprises me about this story is that the Panthers waited as long as they did to let 89 go. If this truly was going on then they waited too long to give him his walking papers.

    A Josh Norman holdout looming?

    Signing K.Short to a long-term deal is more important than signing J. Norman to a long-term deal. Josh had 1 very good season.....but he also plays on a consistently top ranked defense, and with some of the best LB's in the game (Luke & Thomas). He should get paid, but what he is reportedly expecting to be paid ($14M per year!) is greatly over-valued for what the Panthers will pay for a CB. I hope they trade him, and collect draft picks. Other than Chris Gamble (who was arguably the best Panther CB of all time), the Panthers have historically only had 'average CB's' on some of their best teams. With the right front 7, the Panthers have proven that a 'shut-down corner' is a luxury, but not needed to win.

    Panthers Trade for Jared Allen

    The Panthers definitely have a very 'seasoned' D-line now: Johnson 29, Allen 33, Edwards 34, and Cole 35.

    Final Panthers Cuts

    I think Amini gets cut. He has been often injured, and when healthy has been ineffective.

    Oher Struggling Early in Camp

    The good news is that 3 of the 5 o-line positions should be better than last year at this time, and Kalil should be equal to last year at Center. Remmers and Williams (RT) were not even on the team last year at this time, and Chandler was the starting RT. Amini was the starting LG , and Norwell was not starting yet. And Turner was a rookie and not the starting RG yet. I'm not surprised that Oher does not look like an all-pro LT because he never was. He is a stop-gap until the Panthers can draft a legitimate LT. I think he will be better than Bell just from the fact that the rest of the o-line is better than 1 year ago.
