    ^ I am more than okay with this. Brockel is a player that can be replaced by Ward/Dickson's presence. Considering we dressed 3 TEs last year, and Shula didn't call Dickson's number until the latter part of the year, if Ward is capable, buh-bye Brockel.

    I think I might be on this bandwagon too. The eye appeal is incredible for that one...... which is shocking, because it's EA Sports. Go figure!  
    Thanks for the views and advice guys!

    Convince Me Madden 16 is Worth Buying
    I almost always buy Madden with each new release just because I need the updated roster info, players, and team info and it doesn't feel right playing a game that is technically 'dated'. At this point, I'm pleased with '15 enough to consider not buying the newest 2016 version when it comes out later this month. 
    Is it wrong of me to be satisfied with the new roster updates to have the '15 draft class and the player ratings that coincide?  I usually spend August/September running the current Panthers franchise with my minor (realistic) tweaks in FA and offseason moves. Usually, by the time the real team is in the meat of their schedule, I lose interest in the game because my expectations of players don't line up with reality....haha. 
    I take some time off, and then towards the end of the season, I'll do a fantasy draft and just pick a sick team of random players and roll with that.  My latest team that I put together a month ago with '15 draftees included is pretty nasty and still in season 1. 
    Is it worth plunking down over $60 bucks this season or is it same 'ol same 'ol EA?

    Dude is as good as it gets. Reminds me of Schefter back in the infant stages of NFLN, before he became mainstream and Bristol scooped him up. Wilson's cell phone battery must keep him warm in the cold months.

    I had issues yesterday, but got through today. All is well and first timer on the All-Pro section.

    Corey Brown, Kurt Coleman, CAP
    Brown might not be a 'sleeper' but I think he makes that huge jump and solidifies himself as our slot threat, with the potential to slide outside every now and then and house a few. He's gotten bigger without losing speed and has a year in the league under his belt. I think he will outperform his rookie year where he showed flashes mixed with inconsistency. I think 2015 is the year that he consistently shows up for 19 games.
    I think Coleman steps in and takes over the FS role quickly, and kicks Boston to SS where the latter is better suited. Coleman is still young enough to be part of our secondary core for several years, and will benefit being under McD.
    Cameron Artis-Payne might start out behind Fozzy, but I see him taking over the RB2 by midseason. Payne comes from the pistol/read option offense that Cam did, and CAP is the type of RB that this team needs in their style of offense. Watching highlights of Payne, it looks like the Panthers offense out there. I think Payne's ability to hit the hole with focus, break tackles and be a willing receiver out of the backfield is huge.

  7. Soul Rebel added a post in a topic Now that Martin has retired, will Gettleman sign a free agent OT?   

    Anthony Collins makes a lot of sense in a back-up role.... but if he just needs a change of scenery, could hold the fort down until Williams is ready. 
    29 years old and not as injury prone as Long or Baker, I'd be happy with a Collins signing. I assume there's enough money left in the pot to make this happen. Maybe Collins is "too good" for the money it would cost for the level of player it takes to replace Martin, so Getts will sign some cast-off practice squad player that was a UDFA out of St.Cloud State.

    Solid value pick in the 5th and will be a presence in year 1, for sure.  He's not an 'electrifying' back like Gurley or McCoy, but is a dependable bellcow kind of back that will carry the rock 15X a game and wear down a defense. I love how he runs through contact and fights for every extra yard. His knowledge of the read option/pistol makes him a perfect fit.  So often players talents are underutilized in wrong schemes. For us, he fits what we want/need out of our RB to a T.  I would think he and Cam would have instant chemistry too being byproducts of Malzahn's scheme.
