  1. A trade is like to see tomorrow

    Ogbah or Shepard.
  2. 2015 Panthers DT Snap Counts

    What did Shaq see last year? Probably right around 30% of snaps. Drafting for immediate need leads to reaching and getting yourself into trouble. When you reach, you not only fail to properly upgrade the position that you're reaching for, but you also miss an opportunity to upgrade at another position. It's a double whammy. Gettleman refuses to reach based on need. We can't know all the reasoning behind this pick. I'm sure we've had preliminary discussions with Short regarding a new contract. He's a DT who just had double digit sacks. That's rare. If we don't get him locked up this offseason and he has another monster season, he may be looking at a Suh deal. I doubt we'd give him a Suh deal. Especially if Butler shows promise.

    Definitely hell no on trading a future 1st. Cool info on trading comp picks. Didn't know that had changed.
  4. A trade is like to see tomorrow

    Not that I'm aware of, but even still, we don't actually have a comp pick next year. Yet.
  5. A trade is like to see tomorrow

    Can't trade comp picks. We could trade OUR 3rd rounder, but not the comp pick. Even if comp picks could be traded, we couldn't trade next year's because we don't actually have it yet.

    No "Hurney deals" please.
  7. A trade is like to see tomorrow

    Yep, patience. Still lots of talent available. I'm sure just like last year Dave has a list of guys and if they start going fast, we'll start working the phones. If not, just sit back and see how the board falls and take the BPA.
  8. Falcons Fans: Carolina Gets It

    Wow. That's a really dumb argument. Every team in the league is a few key injuries away from a bad season. Take last year's Panthers. Say Cam and Kawaan went down for the season. Yikes... Wow. That made it sink into me. That's how important Short is to our DL. He's the only pass rushing DT we have. That's what the Butler pick is all about. Despite our depth at DT, we specifically needed pass rush help at DT.
  9. Carolina Panthers select DT Vernon Butler

    Not happy, but trust Gettleman. Boom/bust pick. Gotta think he's thinking about cap flexibility so he isn't forced to break the bank on both Star and Short. If we don't get Short locked up this off-season he might get a Suh deal.
  10. Either Lynch is experiencing a pre-draft free fall

    A new reason to hate the Broncos

    Looks like we're going DT u less there's a run on them

    There probably went the last of Gettleman's 1st round OTs. Scratch OT off the list at #30.
  13. REPORT: Panthers interested in moving UP in 1st round

    Marty Hurney... Jeff Otah
  14. Either Lynch is experiencing a pre-draft free fall

    Dave isn't moving back 5 spots AND giving up his 5th year option for a 4th rounder.
  15. Peanut wants to play one more year

    Worth a shot. Not sure a 35 year old CB coming off of an ACL reconstruction is going to be a viable option though.
