    Carolina Panthers Roster Projection

    After watching Garrett's video on panthers.com... he is going to find his way on to the roster one way or the other IMO
  2. Is that Jeremy with the big grin right after the Olsen catch? http://a.video.nfl.com/films/2015/GAME_HIGHLIGHT/in-game-highlight/NFLCOM/REG/6/151018_cmp_ghl_olsen_26_yd_gw_td_320692_3200k.mp4
  3. In 2 drafts Gman has hit on virtually every position he has attacked except RB. He has had multiple rookie UDFAs turned into productive starters. Now we see a whole new rookie crop of RB/FB flash... with only Hurney regime, old RB/FBs in front of them. It would kind of be silly to have low expectations about CAP/Wegher/Ward at this point (not attempting to take anything away from Stewart + Tolbert)
  4. Anyone know? I'm not sure that I buy Todman being a lock mainly because he is our secondary KR.
  5. Has Wegher received any reps at KR in practice? He was a KR at Iowa IIRC
  6. Maybe I'm delusional but I'm holding out hope that Lee Ward makes the 53. I keep thinking about Gman's quote from camp confidential "don't worry about positions just take the best football players" Lee Ward screams football player to me. Tolbert is a UFA in 2016 and turns 30 in November. Maybe we try to give Ward a shot in game action to see if he is the future at FB.

    Panthers Roster Projection Update

    I thought practice squad was 10 this year? it says 9 but I count 10 names
  8. I was trying to think of big WRs that were good after the catch and good in the short receiving game. Brandon Marshall was the first to come to mind. The Funchess vs Brandon Marshall comparison is interesting... Marshall H 6-4 W 229 40 4.56 vertical 37in broad jump 10ft 20 yd shuttle 4.31 3 cone 6.96 bench reps 17 Funchess H 6-4 W 232 40 pro day 4.47 and 4.53 vertical 38.5in broad jump 10ft1in 20 yd shuttle 4.48 3 cone 6.98 College production is almost the exact same with Funchess having one less year
  9. might want to skip this post if you don't want to read a serious rant and this might upset some but I think it is the elephant in the room so oh well... Beat reporters, and people in Zod's position, have a surprising amount of influence on organizations in this day in age. Similar to Gantt, when you have people in those positions focus on trolling and snark, and bypass honest, fair and knowledgeable football discussion... it can derail the direction of an organization more than many would like to admit. The fact that words like poo and fug are the 2 most uttered words here says quite a bit about what the focus here is. The fact that Zod's only approach to this thread is trolling, SCOREBOARD!, snark, is not a great sign that we are headed in the right direction either. JMHO
  10. sure Then again it was somewhat in reply to defensive expectations vs Miami. I do agree with the idea that type of transitive logic is dumb in today's NFL. Look at the other supposed elite D in the league - the chiefs, who looked like junk vs the Broncos last week. Elite defenses rarely if ever shutdown the elite offenses with the way the rules are anymore.
  11. yep, 20 pts is not a fair indicator of how much Pats O torched us. We just couldn't get off the field. IIRC The first half the only thing that got us off the field was a holding call, a fumble and a missed blocking assignment. The 2nd half the only thing that got us off the field was that terrible play call for a pass on 3rd and short. I'm most worried about not stopping their run game. It hasn't happened yet this season. If we can't stop the run going forward our whole defensive game plan is out the window. that said, I think Pats have a top 3 offense going forward with all those weapons. They are also just a bad matchup for our D.
  12. that is crazy talk The week before Pats game they were down 21-3 at the half to the freikin Raiders. 1st play of the game was a 93 yard Terrelle Pryor TD run. Whatever stats led anyone to believe they were the 4th best D in the league should be ignored. The fire LeBeau rumblings among Steelers faithful started well before the Patriot game.
  13. Are you suggesting pitt's D is 4th best in the league? they got reemed by Matt Cassel and the vikes...
  14. I am interested in creating a message board for my fantasy website http://www.fantasydc.com/ I like this board and am interested in using something with the rep feature. Do you have any suggestions on who to use? A simple link would be great. Thanx ahead of time.
