  1. The Panthers desperately need to upgrade their WR’s so Smith is a part of the answer. Ginn’s speed was sorely missed last year. Opposing defenses had no fear against the Panthers with no deep threat and just stacked the box to shut down an already anemic run game that features Cam as the main RB. Smith is a piece of the puzzle but the Panthers are not finished overhauling the WR corps yet. I think we will see more changes and hopeful upgrades before The first game in September. I think this offense is going to be fun to watch if Cam can stay healthy.
  2. He is still a temp GM until the new owners are in place. RR is probably more involved in the GM responsibilities than we know.
  3. Daeshon Hall

    I think the Panthers better plan on drafting a DE with a high pick or at least bring in a proven vet. The Panthers defense relies on a strong front 7 so an effective DE is critical. CJ is done, and Peppers is 37. Hall is unproven and should not be relied on to be the answer.
  4. Bleacher Report

    Because he has a huge ego. He failed during his first trip to the NFL so now he has something to prove. If it were me, I would stay at Alabama
  5. Amini is inactive too. He went from starter to the bench in 7-days.
  6. Good question. Not surprising that Kalil has underperformed based upon his recent past history. I was not surprised that the Panthers pursued him, however I was shocked at the amount of money that they offered him. Unfortunately, I think the Panthers are stuck with him due to the contract. In any case, due to the inadequacies of our left tackle position, signing Norwell should be a priority. I’m sure Norwell makes Kalil better, so I’m terrified to see how he would perform without Norwell
  7. Kaelin Clay > Shepard

    Jake Delhomme, Stephen Davis, Jeremy Shockey, Ricky Proel and he also brought back #87 after his stint with the Bears.
  8. 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.
  9. Panthers Trade for Jared Allen

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

    I think Amini gets cut. He has been often injured, and when healthy has been ineffective.
  11. 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.
  12. What I saw out of Gettleman's quote: Remmers and Newell were just given a very big vote of confidence, and apparently they are the starting RT and LG going into training camp. Amini is not getting his job back at LG which means (with relief) they have finally figured out he is not really that good, and Newell is better. And that they think Remmers can start at RT.
  13. I am a Panthers fan, and I want them to win whether Cam is the QB or not. Cam is the best Panthers QB ever, and I would love for him to stay a Panther, and sign a contract so the Panthers can continue to build the team. But, is it even possible to sign Cam to the kind of money he wants/deserves, and still be able to field a competitive team? And if not, why would Cam be willing to take less to stay a Panther? Bottom line is If Cam requires more money than the Panthers are willing to pay, than Cam will go somewhere else to finish his career. This a business decision, not a personal or emotional decision. The worst case scenario is Cam will be the Panthers QB for 2-more years. He is under contract for 2015, and they can franchise him in 2016.
