  1. Gettleman eating

    "Youse guys eva play Conna?"
  2. 7th rnd: TE: Beau Sandland

    Interesting prospect. I hope we can somehow make an improvement in the TE group with him and maybe McGee. Also we added another "comic book" nickname possibility here with "The Sandman".
  3. I really like this kid and hoping we strike gold with him. I have no information on such a thing but I wonder if maybe there was some knock on his ability to learn the routes? Cause other than that unknown possibility nothing else seems to make sense based on his talent. LOVE his apparent ability to be solid catching the football... with that height and his arms offers a big catch radius. The long stride seems to be a plus minus as I think long stride also makes for a bit of a slower get off the line? Can't wait to see this guy competing for us and really hope he makes his mark.
  4. Panthers list Jeremy Cash as linebacker.

    Cash obviously brings some above average talent/skill to the table (ACC Defensive POY). I think he could be an immediate contributor on special teams and become an interesting weapon in certain sub packages. Will be very interesting to see if they keep him at a LB spot or bounce him in between in certain groupings.
  5. Someone sell me on why Butler was a good pick?

    Initially I was a bit put off with the idea that we'd be using our first round pick as a backup and worried he may not see the field often enough. Also felt that a DE would have been more important to us immediately and in the long term (replacing CJ). BUT I totally understand the talent this guy has and it should absolutely impact our Dline positively. He is extremely talented, skilled and has those off the chart type traits that Gettleman likes with room to grow on the field as well.
  6. About those corners...

    If the G'Fatha and staff get these CB's to work for us I will totally give him credit but from what I've seen on (the admittedly very little in some cases) film thats out there from highlight tapes, to game film, to Senior Bowl practice tape/game film etc. these young men are at best going to take a while to develop. These guys do not appear to be ready to contribute more than moderately in the near future. If we're just going to have to use the guys on the roster that we had beforehand or bring another vet in at CB then it maybe would have been nice to draft players at a position with immediate impact potential for us in the first 3 rounds (DE?). I understand building for the long haul as well as short term but we definitely have spots that need improving to get us over the hump short term as well. Will certainly be interesting to look back as the season goes. Obviously hope G-Man made more Gettlemagic with these selections.
  7. 2016 NFL DRAFT ROUND 3 GENERAL DISCUSSION

    Holy Poo! You have got to be kidding me???
  8. Wasn't there a thread recently saying something about Gettleman having "quelled the beast" so to speak in reference to everyone on the huddle believing in his decisions? I was fairly solid in his corner although I'm still waiting on further results from KB, Shaq and Funch, the weird mess with Norman and NOW drafting a backup/rotation guy in the 1st round and then reaching for a CB who had to transfer from Arkansas St. where he was a safety so that he could play CB at Samford (Mike Mayock's comment). If he hits on these guys and the 3 I previously mentioned solidify; it will be hard to ever doubt the guy but right now Gettlemagic is looking more shaky than it has been in a while...
  9. Sooo... he couldn't get the CB job at Arkansas St. so he transfers to Samford and we draft him in the 2nd round? Gettlemagic off the rails?
  10. Carolina Panthers select DT Vernon Butler

    So Stah, Kwan, and their agents are officially on NOTICE?!!
  11. Panthers rescind Norman's franchise tag...

    The Pats would have turned JNo into like 5 draft picks over the next two seasons instead of just walking for nothing...
  12. Panthers rescind Norman's franchise tag...

    Right but if some other team is willing to pay for him and say give us a second/third round pick in the process at least we'd get SOMETHING?
  13. Panthers rescind Norman's franchise tag...

    Well its a moot point now but was there no possibility to sign him and trade him for SOMETHING? The Panthers seem to be the kings of letting productive players just WALK...
