    Luke comes in at #..

    Pay less attention to the number and more to the fact that he's pretty much always the highest ranked MLB .

    Jimmy Clausen is still trash

    wasnt he on some other teams too before he was out of the league?

    Playoff Thread

    This series is basically Lebron vs the NBA All Star team . I dearly hope we don't ever have a situation like this in football where you already know the outcome of the finals before the season even starts..

    Kicking with Cam

    Donte Jackson looks a lot smaller than JNO and Norman is 6 feet even...
  6. couldve saved quite a few million just by cutting him alone. But then again we did nothing to upgrade our oline in the offseason and you saw what happened to the line last season when Ryan went was out..yikes.
  7. welp, yea i forgot to factor in taxes.
  8. Said he limits himself to $8,000 a month which translates to about if you made $100,000 per year Spotrack says he made $836,900 in base salary last year with a $568,797 signing bonus , which totals $1,404,597 Thats really good if its true he only spent $96,000 at max last year , which is under 7% of what he made during the year.

    Don't ever change, Smitty

    take JR off the statue and put Smitty there doing some kind of celebration in uniform (between the 2 panthers)
  10. The problem is , I'm not impressed with James Bradberry

    Josh Dobbs for a 7th

    that dudes got a big ass head!
  12. he weighted in at 202 lbs at the combine. He was listed as 205 on his official NFL profile by the time the season started. Kamara was incredible last year and he only weight 10 lbs heavier the MCaffrey did (at 215). its less of a weight issue and more of a playing style issue.

    A bounce back year for him?????

    you cant afford to have mediocre safteys if you also have bad CBs, which is what weve been experiencing the past 2 years
  14. Not even sure how this is a question: Offense last year was inconsistent but good enough to keep up or beat the best of teams . Even in 2016 6-10 season we were doing extremely well against Broncos, Chiefs, Raiders . This year we get to vastly improve it with much better WRs, we finally wont have Stewart and KB being force fed the ball anymore, CMC coming in heavier and getting more reps, we have a young bruiser in CJ anderson, a MUCH better OC. Healthy Cam, healthy Greg, Samuel and Byrd coming back. The only real question is the OLine's health and ability, which admittedly is extremely important. I'd be massively disappointed if the offense stuttered in 2018. Defensive secondary is what murdered us last year. At pretty much any given moment, our secondary could be torn to shreds , whiff on tackles, weren't taking the ball away, our dline is old, and we're missing TD for the first few games this season. Even though we finished pretty high in total sacks our dline pressure was extremely inconsistent. Theres alot of pressure on Bradberry to finally make a huge leap in improvement, and for somehow the other scattered cobbled together pieces we have in the defensive backfield to finally work well after 2 strait seasons of terrible performance.
  15. Hes essentially the same height and weight as Lesean McCoy is now. In the latest pictures he looks like he's very similar in size to Artis Payne.
  16. yep . He looked ripped last season , but in pads next to the average NFL player he looked tiny.
  17. indeed, theres hardly anything team related to talk about till it gets alot closer to the start of the pre season.
  18. this isnt a good comparison when hes not wearing full uniform on the bottom. There were plenty of pictures before last season showing how ripped CMC was but he was still fairly small on the field just in comparison to the average NFL player size not to say he was skinny , he may just have a very lean natural body type? idk
  19. Yup. This is me. I'm still waiting to see how he looks in full pads on a football field with everyone else. Last year he looked tiny in comparison. Not height wise (Where he's fairly average for a RB at 5'11'') but muscle mass/body type wise, he just looked flat out skinny, especially in the mid section.

    Panthers SB 53 win?

    Not sure you can say its do or die, considering in the last 2 seasons we have won 0 playoff games. I mean, of course we all want a Super Bowl after getting so close in 2015. But I think I'd consider making it to the NFCCG a pretty damn successful season compared to the last 2 years. If we can't at least make it past the divisional round in the playoffs, then yes thats a disappointment for me. But I'm not going to say SB or bust. They key parts are still Cam and Luke.. they're getting older, sure, but still relatively young. Starting with this season we should have a good 5 year or so window to make a few good runs at a SB. I think the offense will just evolve as Cam gets older to be less reliant on him and more about using the parts around him (which is good because Funchess, CMC, DJ Moore, Samuel, Byrd, Ian Thomas all very young)

    The game would have been totally different if Kaelin Clay catches that first touchdown pass, and if we didnt allow that 80+ yard TD to Ginn. Thats literally a two TD swing right there. Biggest reasons we lost the playoff game were secondary and WR drops/not getting open enough. The defense actually did much better in the 3rd contest in stopping Ingram and Kamara from running wild. I think we did really well in the offseason in trying to address some of the problems. I still have concerns about Saftey and Oline, but its reassuring that we have a good infusion of talent on both sides of the ball .
  22. Another important thing is, we NEED more contributions from our draft classes. In the last few years, we simply haven't been getting enough long term contributions from draft classes. Lets see here : 2014 :(1 player) Only player left on the team , Trai Turner. Who is admittedly a very good player. But only having 1 out of 4 players still on the team after only 4 seasons is not good for future stability . 2015 : (4 players) Actually a great draft : Shaq, Funchess, Daryl Williams, and David Mayo. All serve very important roles on the team . 2016: (1 player) Only players left: Butler and Bradberry . Butler has been mostly a forgotten backup and Brad berry has been at best servicable. 2017 : (1 player) McCaffrey. Thats IT from this draft. Hoepfull for some of the other guys but it hasnt happened yet. So thats 3 out of the past 4 drafts that have been very inefficient in general. Heres to hoping that 2018 draft kicks ass like the Saints draft did last year, very hopefull for DJ Moore, Donte Jackson, Ian Thomas at least. and in terms of past drafts, you could hope that Shaq and Bradberry elevate past servicable to being good-very good. And wish that CMC will run more efficiently, Samuel will stay healthy, Moton will be a great LG? Hall conributes at DE? We most certainly have a lot of POTENTIAL to be great. The question is whether that actually comes through on game day.
  23. I can see CMC after being outshined and almost totally dismissed as a rookie RB last season , run with something to prove this season .. looks like hes packed on some serious muscle and ingratiated himself more in the team culture Alot of factors go into this, but Im have a very simular positive vibe about this coming season. Cam is healthy (vs not healthy in 2017 start, and having all the emotional baggage at the 2016 season start after the SB 50 fallout), new weapons. Hell it was kinda scary how well we did last year considering who was calling the plays and our extreme lack of talent at WR and in the secondary on defense. Most critical things to watch are : Injuries (Ryan Kalil in particular has killed us the last 2 seasons, we cant keep getting injured at key positions on offense ) Secondary performance (can they actually take the ball away consistently after 2 strait seasons of failure) Norvs New Offense + New Players + Cam (Basically , will all these new parts work well together? Who is to say... hopefully so.)
  24. wasnt fun for us watching him
