  1. Cam, KB, Ginn, Olsen, Stewart, Funch. You have to put Ginn in there for obvious reasons..I'm not really sure why they would include Dickson over Ginn..I guess he is pretty dangerous on those fumble recoveries.. Philly deserves an honorable mention.
  2. Shaq Thompson Involved In Head on Collision

    I agree. I didnt mean to make accusations.. I just thought the time of day raised a few more questions in my mind than if it were to happen at say 9 PM. I am cool with Shaq either way.
  3. Shaq Thompson Involved In Head on Collision

    I'm not saying that thats not what happened. As someone who has done some things, I'm saying it was a sign of concern. He probably did have alcohol in his system from the night before. But for him to still have some in his system at 7:45 AM makes you wonder some other things.. Its not easy to be awake at 7:45 AM when you have been drinking enough to still have alcohol in your system at that time. I am assuming he was just being a kid and having some fun.. But these things cant happen.
  4. Shaq Thompson Involved In Head on Collision

    The biggest concern about all of this is the time of day in which it occured.. Driving around at 7:45 AM with any alcohol in your system is a red flag. Glad it wasnt more serious and that Shaq is fine. He is still a kid. He did something everyone does, so I'm not gonna put a label on him.. but you dont like to hear about this kind of stuff. TD needs to give him a stern talking to..

    People too often judge by intentions instead of results.. Somehow, trying to field a consistent playoff team takes you further than trying to field a championship team. I know its hard to believe. It is so freaking hard just to get to the Superbowl....harder than we probably can even realize...you need so many things to happen...going "all in" or going for the championship team hardly ever works and usually will come back to bite you hard. No one thought our WRs could take us anywhere after KB went down..look what happened? Same in 2013 when people couldn't believe Captain Munnerlyn could be our number 1 corner. You can keep bringing up 2014, but teams were scared to play us going into the playoffs that year. We found some answers and i believe it played a big part in laying out a blueprint for our 2015 Superbowl run. Gettleman has consistently stayed true to building for the future and as a result, we continue to stockpile and develop young good players. We just went to the Superbowl with a team that no one expected to do anything! Isn't it amazing how that works?? We are going to maximize the number of opportunites we get to knock on the door, because eventually, we are going to break it down... -1OVE #KeepPounding

    Do you actually think that our reason for "handing the reigns" over to multiple rookies is because of how they look in gym shorts? Maybe you need to do a better job of forming your thoughts.. There is logic and consistency behind Gettlemans moves even if you dont see it. I agree that its dumb to just say no one should disagree with any of Gettlemans moves.. but a lot of people are too quick to say Gettleman is definitely wrong and if you dont see that, its because you are a blind supporter. Lets leave some wiggle room in there.

    Not if they believe that playing our young thieves will be better. I meant Boykin was insurance in case the draft didnt fall the way it did. Now he is just someone to delay their growth. Gettleman thought he found better insurance, so got rid of the old one. I brought up the insurance because you said cutting Boykin proves Gettleman made a mistake because you thought we paid for nothing. I think Gettleman looks at it like he paid for insurance.

    Do you think insurance is a good thing? or is it just a waste? Why not look at this move similarly? Draft picks are almost always more valuable than low priced veteran free agents. If you want sustained success, you have to take some chances in order to let young guys develop quickly.

    I doubt it was based only on rookie minicamp. Maybe that played a small factor. Im guessing trusting their scouting and the college film played a bigger part.
  10. Panthers Release Boykin

    Well you cant keep everyone forever. Sometimes, you need a place holder even though its not ideal. My guess is that they like McClain more than Boykin.
  11. Panthers Release Boykin

    He didnt do nothing.. He was insurance. The draft made him expendable. I wouldnt say someone made a mistake just because they got insurance and never had to make a claim.
  12. Panthers Release Boykin

    Define solid..? Not being able to stay with a team doesn't sound that solid to me. Maybe allowing some of our WRs to develop in 2014 allowed us to reach the Superbowl in 2015? Or maybe it allowed us to sign some other players that contributed to our success. Lets look at the entire picture. Its not that far fetched.
  13. Panthers Release Boykin

    A player of his caliber? Why couldnt a player of his caliber get much playing time last year? Why hasnt he been able to stay with one team? Apparently, Dave Gettleman and others dont agree with you on the caliber of player Boykin is. Thats the only reason people are so upset over this move. In their own minds, Boykin was gonna be a stud, and now they are confused. We have had a lot of success over recent years playing young guys. People complain that we can be too stubborn when it comes to sticking with veterans over young guys, and then they complain when we cut a vet who's not even that good. If you want someone just because they are vet, at least find one who has been able to stick with a team for a decent amount of time. In this salary cap era, you've got to be able to develop young players quickly. Boykin was just a guy who would prevent that. Maybe this will work. Maybe the young guys will struggle. Every year, we go into the season with question marks somewhere. Gettleman is willing to let that be the secondary again. This is what you have to do for sustained success. We have to give them a chance. I dont think Gettleman looks at the roster like most of you guys. Its not just focusing on one year at a time, even though as fans, we put all our eggs in one basket each year.
  14. Panthers Release Boykin

    Maybe it looks bad, but thats not a reason to keep him. No need for anyone to be that upset over a guy who cant stay on a roster for one reason or the other. I think people are upset because this guy got over hyped, and now people think we lost a good player. The fact that he was cheap should make you guys feel even better. It's not like we wanted him but decided to cut him because we wanted the extra money.
  15. Panthers Release Boykin

    Yeah. There must be more we dont know.. There were questions as to why he didnt get more playing time in Pittsburgh last year. This move now pretty much confirms that people were too high on him. Where are those charts comparing JNo to Boykin now??
