  1. Carolina Panthers OTA Notes and Photos

    If Hill can pull it together, we're going to have to make some tough decisions. I would be on board with keeping 6, Benji, Funchess, Hill, Byrd and Ginn and hopefully Garrett can be retained on the practice squad. I just don't think Philly is that good or brings much to the table, and neither does Bersin. The Broncos showed the game plan to beat us, and what we need is more speed/players that can't be single covered.
  2. Shaq Thompson Involved In Head on Collision

    I'm not sure what you mean. All I know is in general, it makes logical sense to swerve the opposite direction of the incoming driver, not in the same direction as the incoming vehicle.
  3. Shaq Thompson Involved In Head on Collision

    While obviously Shaq was at fault because he crossed over the line, it sounds like the other drive tried to serve left(AKA into Shaq's lane) to avoid him, rather then swerving right? Sounds like that is at some fault to the other driver as well, but would have to see pictures of the accident to see how far Shaq was into his lane and how much of a median there was on the side of the road. Doesn't make sense to try and switch lanes with the other driver.
  4. Shaq Thompson Involved In Head on Collision

    I laugh when someone is imagining his night of drinking ending with him in bed at 2:00 AM. More then likely, stayed out drinking till 3-4 and was driving back from a cleat chaser's house, very easy to be still partially intoxicated just a couple hours later. I'm more worried about both parties health then already judging Shaq.
  5. Antonio Cromartie wants to come to Carolina

    You're mixing up technique and scheme. How to tackle, how to time your jump for an incoming pass, proper footwork in your back peddle and breaking on certain routes, and things like the peanut punch are techinique, which will stay the same no matter what defense you're playing in. These are things he would need once he no longer runs a 4.3 and can simply use his superior speed as a crutch. Speed can hide a lot of poor technique, and 2014 is a long time ago when you're talking about a player who's over 30. I you never played sports, you don't understand.
  6. Bill Barnwell's NFC South Offseason Report Card

    But but but but we cut Brandon Boykin, the best nickel corner in the NFL according to some random writer 2 years ago. F-!
  7. Antonio Cromartie wants to come to Carolina

    Lol, the things I hear around here are hilarious sometimes. Cromartie has been in the league 10 years now, if technique is so easily learned, I'm pretty sure it would have been done so by now. Not to mention his athleticism has fallen off as well, you don't make a project out of a 32 year old.
  8. They seemed to see a lot in Marlowe, I wouldn't be surprised to see him be that third, heavy rotation guy. Also, I can see us picking up a vet during cuts in August.
  9. Panthers Release Boykin

    No many cancerous negative idiots. If you've ever browsed a game day thread, you understand the pathetic, negative mentality of many of the posters here. Team is up by 14 points, and people are berating Cam, Gettleman and Rivera for any bad play. Boykin has been let go by 3 teams, one way or another. He's 25, with barely any starting experience. He is not a storied vet that is going to teach the rookies anything. Bene has been in the league longer and has more playing time then Boykin, not to mention McClain. You don't get traded/cut/or let walk if you're a valuable player and 25 years old, end of story.
  10. Spot on. Without the Black and Blue tinted glasses, this is a fantastic idea. Stadiums are competing against the home experience which has so many advantages it's ridiculous. With 8 home games a year, making the game an event that's always sold out is #1 importance. The more competition for those seats the more they can charge for the ticket itself.
  11. Panthers Release Boykin

    Never understood this argument. Under Hurney/Fox, many rookies sat, and it was EXTREMELY rare for any rookie to start, with the exception of our 1st round picks, and even then not always. Davis, Stewart, Deangelo did not start their rookie years and only played very sparingly, and you would rarely ever see our 2nd or later rookies play much if any time. While with Gettleman/Rivera, all of our 1st rounders have started or playing significant time from Day 1, most of our high rounders get a ton of snaps as contributors, and we even play UDFAs their rookie year.
  12. Panthers Release Boykin

    Where is this "very good" player assumption coming from?!? He's looking for his 4th team and his 25 years old. His best year, 2013, his interceptions came from Cutler, Scott Tolzein and RG3, hardly elite company. While I think we should have kept him around in case of injury, I think more of you are looking at his speed on Madden.
  13. Panthers Release Boykin

    Boykin was WAY overhyped here. More then one person was parading him as one of the best nickel corners in the NFL. One of the best nickel corners in a passing league wouldn't be looking for his 4th team in 2 years at age 26. Philly and Pittsburgh don't have good corners at all, yet the guy could not break the starting line up. He was traded for pennies, and then sat on the bench in Pittsburgh. That being said, I'm surprised they cut him this early in the process, but I believe Gettleman is just trying to do him a solid so he can find another team early in the process.
