  1. Should #89 be Replaced?

    Nope. Retire it. He's a once in a decade or two player. If he played in a bigger market, he'd be regarded a lot higher.
  2. Man. It sure does sting that we didn't offer him something fair to stay. Love Josh. $11 million wasn't remotely approaching market value as we saw. We let a guy who wanted to be a part of this, and was a big part last year, walk out the door for free. Gettleman, you better know what you're doing. For as much credit as I give you for what you've done here, this season is the most important in franchise history. It better be a good one, or you'll need every terrible towel in the stadium to wipe the egg from your face.
  3. Trading up with the Titans

    470 and 450 are the pick valuations. 284 is the value of our 61st overall. 128 is the value of our 91st pick in the 3rd. That puts us about 412, or 40-60 value points away from getting there. Our 4th round pick has a 43 point value. It might take Our 2nd, 3rd, and 4th to get there. So you're definitely correct.
  4. Carolina Panthers select DT Vernon Butler

    I worry that Gettleman is feeling himself a little much. Between the old west style negotiation with Josh Norman (on a nearly insulting disparity between the player's open market worth and our offer) and the selection of a player that will be rotational at best next season does little to encourage me. If you're going to be suspiciously quiet in free agency, you have to fill those holes at the draft. Especially your 1st round pick who should be on the field from Day 1 unless he's a QB.
  5. Folks, this changes nothing. You don't gamble with more than you're willing to lose. This is a business. If Norman wanted to stay here, he would have signed the tender the minute it was issued to him. If you give the organization time to consider what life without you looks like, don't blame them for using that time to evaluate what life without you looks like. It was a gamble by Norman and his agent and it didn't work out in the conventional sense. The good news for Norman is that he got to pick his destination and he got the money he was after. Carolina obviously decided it wasn't interested at that number. Ideally this works out for both parties. If you want to stay somewhere, don't risk it. Sign the tender. If a few extra million a year is your goal then don't be shocked when you get it from another team.
  6. Pick an edge rusher

    I have zero desire to see Jason Pierre-Paul attempt to slap people down with an oven mitt.
  7. Hardy evidence photo somehow leaked

    And a big fat fug you to everybody that was apologizing for this mother fuger with your "derp he wasn't technically found guilty derp" bullshit when the facts of the case were so overwhelming against Hardy. Hopefully some of you blind ass homers learned a lesson from this. Just because a dude wears black and blue doesn't make him a Panther that deserves your respect and admiration. This thread is full of the same back biting people who were defending this cat tooth and nail and calling for Goodell's head for having him on the exemption list, which I'm sure at least half of you will deny.
  8. Final Panthers Cuts

    Do we have to read 30 pages of garbage before finding out who the cuts are or do we have a real thread with a running tally?
  9. Hardy Case Dismissed

    Correct. A settlement would mean nothing in a criminal case. However, paying off the star witness of the prosecution to take a vacation and not be available to her lawyers or to the court means that they have no recourse but to rule against her in the proceedings. Hardy being able to buy himself a not guilty verdict means a hell of a lot more to his career than however much it cost him to have her disappear. Because if you'll remember, this "flake" made every single one of her other court dates before mysteriously dropping off the face of the earth. Not just chilling at home, either. She's making it damn sure that she isn't going to be found for this.
  10. Hardy Case Dismissed

    All evidence suggests that they haven't been able to get in touch with Holder for many, many months. Last contact being in October. Looks like he did exactly that. But you can't get a case dismissed until the accuser actually "no shows" on the trial date. That's why the trial date being bumped past the end of the season meant that we weren't going to see Hardy on the field this season.
  11. Hardy Case Dismissed

    It's funny how people think this means none of this happened. What you're seeing is Greg Hardy taking some of that cash he didn't work for and paying Holder to make it go away. Jerry Richardson's money going towards some woman's blow habit is just as insulting as Greg being found guilty in the first place. I still have zero doubts he did it, or else this "civil settlement" to make her leave town wouldn't have been required. Greg made a smart financial investment. Take a few million and leave town, let me get my not guilty verdict, and we'll all be happy. That's why you pay the lawyers.
  12. Ted "Born A" Ginn

    I won't say it's a fluke, because dude is fast, but 7 catches over 3 games isn't all that much to get excited about. The fact that we haven't been moving the chains effectively enough with Steve, Brandon, and Greg is a problem. Ginn is good for a surprise deep route every game, and to his credit Cam has been delivering the ball on time for the most part, but if he gets too predictable on those routes we lose that weapon too because Ginn simply can't make tough catches in traffic or over dudes. Better teams aren't going to let Ginn do this all season especially with our other guys underperforming and dropping catchable passes. Remember that time Armanti Edwards was supposed to break out this season too? Damn.
  13. Official Panthers Cuts Thread...

    I can't believe how useless Person is at reporting cuts. He's literally finding out after players post it themselves and citing "league sources", when he should be the league source. You're the beat writer. Talk to somebody.
  14. Nahhh... that's way too high of a score (gets way too diffcult at about 25k points). I don't have the time to put into it. OK, I have the time, but I'd rather use it for more... engaging games. :P Congratulations though; I want an autograph!

  15. LOL! It got a little laggy on my screen for some reason I think it worked to my benefit. More reaction time. I guess in some way that is cheating.... but hey, it gives you something to shoot for now.
