  1. Has there been a bigger Carolina miss in the NFL draft?

    How about all the QBs the Panthers could have drafted and didn't, believing Delhomme was the guy and that arm was fine . With Fox probably just as well...if you go back and look,it will make you cry
  2. About those corners...

    I am aware of it and my opinion on that is if a GM thinks enough of a player to use it and apply it, then that GM lives with it. There other categories that could have been used. this move cost a lot more than just Norman himself. The Panther GM caused a loss of depth that he could have used. That the team could have used. its water over the bridge now. Well over it he is the NFL Executive of the year I expect more frankly. Maybe that's the issue for me. I expect with his experience to handle it to benefit the Panthers and I really struggle with losing an all pro and drafting three players in a position that as he himself says, doesn't matter much in the Panthers scheme
  3. About those corners...

    Last year is over. Glad for the wins some could have gone another way a year is a lifetime in the young man's game of pro football Rosters have to turn over frequently we all know this both the Falcons and broncos gave the blueprint on the panthers and also the inability of the panthers' OC to do a quicker offensive play selection to neutralize that rush either we don't have it or we can't execute it I seem to recall gettleman saying cornerback isn't that important in our scheme. Th e front seven is...quite an epiphany to draft 3 corners don't you think just my opinion not arguing with anyone there were players there to make numerous positions better instead we got nothing this year for Norman we focused on one position group to the extreme and stayed pat with positions that needed an upgrade i really feel that Super Bowl should have been a wake up call on the coaching staff and some players instead it's the 'so glad to have been there ' platitudes Will kelvin make difference maybe Stewart another year older as is Khalil dont get it I'm not paid to get it just my observation i just pay to watch them play
  4. About those corners...

    Great. But that is next year compensatory
  5. About those corners...

    I dont really care who he drafted or what position they are or how they are ranked by some sports reporter Four questions worth asking 1. How does a GM let an All Pro walk and get nothing? Nada. Zero. Zip an additional second or third round pick could have made a lot of difference this year 2. How did anything done during this draft make the Panthers one bit better against premier defenses Seems to me the defensive backfield wasn't the reason for that super bowl loss or the beating Newton took from Atlanta Speed against slow tackles, kills 3. Aging and injury prone RB with third stringers behind them and an aging center in constract year 4 edge rushers If he finds a replacement for Norman, good for him but giving away an All Pro and getting nothing for it, not smart and then the ancillary impact of wasting not two but three draft picks to fill the void. This offense needs upgrades. Gettlemen would do well to consider Newton's replacement in two years as his body can't take the beating he is getting
  6. In case you lost count....

    You just made a bad football weekend worse
  7. 2016 NFL Draft Round 2 General Discussion

    I'm sorry only every once in awhile does small schools work out. Lord
  8. Biggest Panthers needs/solution going into draft

    Probable defensive end but for a run heavy team anyone who thinks Stewart, FoZzy, CAP are the answers,nope. Stewart is approaching 30. His healthy meter ,can go band any second with those ankles and feet. The RBs behind him collectively are 3rd string at best. Tolbert, pls spot player at best this backfield needs speed...cutting speed and burst at the line. They don't have it. Atlanta and Tampa will be better defensively its time. Again DE probable
  9. Norman was not a production of a system

    It was simple. Get KK under contract. Get Star under contract or over pay a very good CB who sometimes couldn't control his emotions and only covered half ofthe field in this system. ...and I think Gettleman grew weary of the thought of seeing Norman on every sports show lobbying for a contract No player is worth that distraction I am sorry Josh is gone too but he is gone. It is a business and at least we don't have to have TD be a baby sitter on the fieldand the sidelines anymore ...and somehow despite what was said, that little show in NY, I don't think the Panthers liked either, it hurt the team, it was selfish, and then, after that, Norman gave up key passes late. Josh got paid. Good for him. As for the Redskins, a team and organization I despise, well, 'a fool and his money soon part'.
  10. It is blatantly obvious what the Broncos are doing

    An offensive game plan with plays that don't take 5 to 7 seconds to develop and you know neutralizes the rush would be a good place to start
  11. Cam's response to Von

    Or tell Shula he can't call plays that take 5 to 7 seconds to develop when the d line is in the back field in 3.5 seconds
  12. QB Backups matter . Ask Dallas
  13. Peyton Manning retires

    NFL got its narrative Manningrides to the sunset a toothless lion onVon Miller's performance..a shoo in for HOF. Good for him. Good for the NFL. something in me changed after that Super Bowl towards the NFL after decades of watching the games,my observation is the NFL has a story it wants and the opposing team to overcome that narrative has to be flawless the panthers performance in the Super Bowl was bad enough but I would really like the NFL to explain, with the whole world watching, with cameras all overthe field, with officials in the booth, with the supposed ability to call NY based officials, not one, not two, but three critical calls were missed that absolutely helpedthe outcome. i know, the Panthers helped the implosion. Newton this, Remmers thatand all the rest but three major calls? With no plausible explanations? With a crew that had officiated 5 other Broncos wins? just stamp 'I'm stupid' onmy forehead. When I received my Panthersinvoice which went up 600 dollars from last year thanks to ticket prices and NC state tax, forthe first time, I asked myself what I was doing with money worked so hard to earn.
  14. Kuhn would be beastly. Dream on I know
  15. Players' Opinion of Cam - Changing Tide?

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion ...and I never said that one press Conf outweighed all the good and those of us in this market know the good the rest of the NFL world doesn't,and it was not a good first lookon the field,for the Panthers players,coaches or the press Conf withNewton it will be interesting to see what Jerry's opinion is as shown by Cam's demeanor next year. Jerry 'sopinion matters
