    Can we really not find anyone better out there depth wise than Chandler?

    Read about this yesterday. Disgusting.
    I predicted the responses in here. Usual racist poo. Glad the regular season is around the corner now.

  3. TheRed added a post in a topic We were 3rd best in rushing when Cam passed for 4K in 2011   

    Oh I'm with you, we need a consistent run game. It's been missing for awhile now.
    But just to be clear. Looking at the numbers for 2011 a little closer, if you take out Newton's rushing, and just look at the RB's yardage, we would have been ranked 21st in rushing. We were also 1st in rushing TD's with 26, thanks to 14 of those coming from Newton. So, Cam Newton literally brought us from near the bottom of the league, to the top in rushing. Which makes whatever argument the OP is trying to present a little silly.

    Can Newton putting up nearly 800 rushing yards himself kind of skews the numbers a bit.
    Tell us where the run game ranked without his rushing numbers factored in.

    Top 5 running game? We haven't had a 1,000 yard running back since 2009 lol.
    Cam Newton has been a large chunk of our running game since we drafted him.
    Anyways, thanks for the kind words.

    Just as many are dismissive of Bersin. Not long ago we had a thread specifically about Byrd, and it became littered with shitposts about why Bersin is even here.
    I can see the positives in both guys, maybe that's a crazy thought for some.
    We aren't in a position depth wise to be too picky though this season. That is the reality of the situation.

    If Dickson is indeed improved, I could see him getting 300 yards if we decide to run more two TE sets with KB out. Cam did pretty well with those in 2011.
    Bare in mind though, if Newton passes for close to 4,000 yards, that likely means our ground game is not doing too hot, which hasn't exactly resulted in a lot of wins for us. I would just be happy with a quality balance. But our run game is certainly going to be key.

    We would probably have to get the Colts GM pretty toasted to begin considering trading us Moncrief for peanuts.

    Has Binns even played any football the last 3 years? I can't find anything past 2012.
    Sanders could possibly be worth a look, but we already have a similar WR in Byrd.
    Rogers bouncing around from team to team combined with his legal troubles make his chances of interest on our part pretty minimal.
    All in all, it's not a great time to be looking for a WR.
    I'm just hoping Funchess can step up, but we shouldn't put too much pressure on him.

    This one? Not sure what we could expect at this point, not a lot of options out there.

  11. TheRed added a post in a topic We only have one issue.. Remove Brown from the roster and we are legitimate contenders.   

    We're already limited with our options at the WR position, I don't see him going anywhere, not yet at least.

    That stems just about entirely from his performance last season. It's not the fans fault that he too often disappeared in games.
    He's going to get plenty of opportunities this season with KB out. We need him to bounce back.

    I don't think it's a matter of people not wanting Cotchery. Most fans here, myself included, were pretty happy when we signed him.
    For us to go far this year, he has to step up as a veteran leader on the field, not just in name. It's as simple as that.
