    I really don't want a DT with the first, without Norman on the books, we'll be able to re-sign both Star and KK, don't waste a first rounder on such a strength
  2. Forget predictions. Who do you want?

    Every year since 2011 we've taken the guy I wanted in the first except for last year as there was nobody I was in love with, but was 100% on board with the Shaq pick. Cam was Cam, and I despised Jimmy, easy choice. Was shocked we actually took Kuechly, even though he was by far and away the guy I wanted. Never expected Star to fall to us, was actually hoping we would trade up to get him as he was falling. Wanted KB from the second I saw him in the college skills challenge, even before I knew if he was a realistic possibility with where we were picking. This year my two guys are Coleman and Hunter, badly want one of them, let's hope my streak continues.
  3. Not necessarily, all it takes is for us to talk about it with a few teams, Denver will hear about the talks and look to make a move before we can "finalize" anything with them. I don't think we'd make any of those moves to move out of the first unless we got a crazy deal for it, but the threat would be all that's needed for Denver to explore a swap with us.
  4. Yes, he does a lot for them, but it's mainly calling games, that can be replaced without much if any viewership drop off. They could not replace Mike and Mike with someone and keep half their viewers they bring in, way more valuable to ESPN than Tirico
  5. With the Broncos!!!! How perfect of a situation would that be? A QB falls to 30 that not only they want, but other teams do as well, and we know Gettleman doesn't like to give up that 5th year option, so he bluffs making a deal with someone else to force the Broncos to swap spots with us and pick up maybe a 3rd round pick or maybe even a 2nd in next years draft. We can still draft whoever we would at 30, keep the 5th year option, and add a valuable pick at the same time. That would be my ideal situation for the draft to play out, anyone else on board with this?
  6. I don't think Tirico is at the level of those guys. Berman is a lifer, he just isn't going anywhere at this point Mike and Mike have the most watched/listened to sports talk radio show ever and have manned their most important block of programming (morning drive) for almost 20 years now, they couldn't afford to lose them and their fan base, there is a reason they just made the broadcasting HOF. And SVP was given his own custom sportscenter show to basically do as he pleases. Tirico called a lot of different things, but he was never given the things the Mikes or SVP have been.
  7. I'm guessing there are only a select handful of people who they won't get rid of regardless of how much they get paid namely Mike and Mike, SVP, and Chris Berman almost everyone else is expendable to them I'm guessing
  8. I love Cam just as much as anyone else here, but anyone who says him is just nuts. Lebron very well might be the most physically gifted person to ever walk this earth, literally. He has always been bigger than his listed size too, he's more like 6'9" and until he cut down his weight a year or so ago was around 270 and still moved like a point guard.
  9. Panthers rescind Norman's franchise tag...

    Only thing we can do is sign both Short and Star to long term deals, any quality FA will have already been scooped up by someone else now. If we don't sign both of them before the season starts, then this is a TOTAL waste, should have been done months ago if it was going to be done, when there were FA's to be signed.
  10. Panthers rescind Norman's franchise tag...

    Also, why now!?!?! We could have used that money to sign some other FA's before, we could have gotten some really good players with that money. At this point, you just needed to suck it up and have him play one more year under the tag, you know he would bring his best as he was playing for another big contract next summer.
  11. Panthers rescind Norman's franchise tag...

    Terrible move, we have ZERO chance at resigning him now I'd say Josh very much seems like the type of guy who will now play for any other team than the Panthers for less than whatever we would offer him. If we offer him $10 million, he'll go to another team for $9,999,999 I don't see any way he plays another down for the Panthers, son of a.......
  12. Is Star as good as gone?

    The difference is Shaq, while a long term replacement for TD, can also play at the same time as Luke and TD. We didn't see a ton of that this year because he was a rookie who had some injury issues, but I think this year we'll see a lot more of him staying in on nickle as a hybrid LB/S position. I'd have a hard time seeing many scenarios where we play Star, Short, and another DT all at the same time, yes Short can move out to DE at times, but he's still mainly a DT
  13. Panthers trading out of Round 1 more likely

    I don't think I'd be ok with picking up just an early third to move back 3-6 picks because you lose the 5th year option after the first round. I'd be okay with it if we picked up a second rounder next year from one of those teams instead of a third rounder this year though
  14. Is Star as good as gone?

    It's less fear about the money being there as much as it is the speculation about drafting a guy who would appear to be a replacement for either Star or Short
  15. Is Star as good as gone?

    I think it's more than just taking a discount to stay and win in Carolina actually (or maybe just wishful thinking). But from the very beginning, he came across as a family man, even staying home for the draft so he could be with them. And with two young kids in elementary school, it wouldn't surprise me if he wants to keep the kids where they're at and not uproot their lives. It's actually a big reason I wanted to draft him, most rookies come in wanting to live the NFL life and have a good time. He came into the league with a wife and two young kids, it was very much a job to support his family from day 1 for him.
