  1. Well, being that we're already hated .. Sign Hardy

      And shouldn't your own point there speak VOLUMES to what we may not know?  Maybe the reason we give Alexander a chance is because it's weed, and maybe he'll turn a corner?  Not even really entertaining bringing Hardy back, where we've shown we'll give some guys a 2nd, or 3rd chance? Yeah...I'm trusting the guys in charge who were around Hardy all the time here. With a business to run. And who also essentially had 13 million dollars stolen from them from immature/dumb actions on a player's part, who then CONTINUED to make an ass of himself all year in Dallas, where he knew the spotlight was on him.  The playoffs this year also helped show that occasionally, good character guys matter. Ask the Bengals how Burfict and Pacman are.  Hardy the player - beast Hardy the person, who you're also signing - an absolute damn moron.     A fun thing too...our DE's (whole DL) next year could be young. IIRC from articles, Ealy is also a bit of a headcase going back to Mizzou...imagine Greg Hardy being the de facto vet leader of the DEs next year...no thank you. 
  2. Forte won't be re-signed

    Yeah he'll go thrive in NE for a season. Wouldn't mind him, or any of the "old" RBs as a potential stop gap, though...depending on Stewart. 
  3. Panthers interviewing special teams coaches

    Interview some ST players while you're at it.  Some that may tackle a guy who didn't call a fair catch perhaps? 
  4. Cap Casualties - Top 25

    He's battled some injuries, but Chris Long could be a decent fit to start opposite Kony, with a draft pick or two/Addison behind them.  Also random and probably completely wrong...but I swear I remember years ago Howie Long saying on the Fox pregame show his kids were Panthers fans. Also went to UVA, so maybe some "local" ties. Granted, he did get thrown out of the Rams/Panthers game a couple years back and was an ass that day, but I'd welcome him.    Matt Kalil just makes too much sense if released. We'd have the inside track on signing him I'd imagine, and he'd hopefully take a short "prove-it" deal 
  5. Is Kony Ealy the next great Panthers defensive end?

    If he can cut out the occasional dumb penalty, he's going to be not only a force, but a consistent one with Ron's trust. 
  6. Getting Benji Back

    I like the WRs next year...KB, Funch, Philly, and Ginn could be a helluva top 4 if the young guys keep progressing.  Cotch as a potential 5th is a wildcard...but we may also be in a position in the draft to take a home run shot on a guy like Braxton Miller and have a potentially young/crazy potential WR group. 
  7. What might a Charles Johnson extension look like?

    Unless his cap number goes down to 5-6 million or so for next year, I don't see a way to keep him. The savings are too great, and money for leadership can only be so expensive.    I'd rather have Olivier Vernon, Malik Jackson, or someone else on 1 decent sized contract...than pay the same amount for a pair of CJ and a third tier DE 
  8. I re-watched the game today (I hate myself), and yeah...a lotttt of bad calls and outright dirty poo from the Broncos...but we should've made plays. Anytime we'd get momentum, dropped pass, Tolbert fumble, Remmers screw up, Cam throws high, penalty, or the lovely ST punt coverage blunder that really did us in IMO. 
  9. 2016 Top NFL free agents - running backs

    Johnson is getting cut, or taking an outright paycut...we'll be clearing 11 million from a cut of CJ.  Stew is trickier. If he's played his way into staying, he makes his money.  Or, he's a June 1st cut, save around 4 million IIRC. Which could be enough to sign an Alfred Morris perhaps.    I ran some numbers on probable cut players a few weeks ago, and we can end up with around 35-40 million in space, while keeping Kalil (another big cap hit) and Stewart's numbers as they are I believe. 
  10. Didn't Cam always sit in Voth's media seat before pressers?    Well that could be awkward now. 
  11. 2016 Top NFL free agents - running backs

    FWIW, from what I remember fantasy gurus always saying, Alfred Morris was BY FAR at his best when RG3 was playing.  Aka, zone-read, QB threat to run, yada yada.  Cousins didn't allow him the same opportunities. Also is supposedly a high character/quality guy.  I think Morris could come in and at least be a dependable, move the chains guy.    May seem weird, but Morris could be a steal.
  12. We need a DE... so whom?

    Vernon would be the home run signing.  No doubt in my mind DG would pay his asking price money wise, I just don't know if he'd be willing to go the 5 years or so he probably wants. With so many of our own guys to pay in the next couple of years, the cap is still something we'll have to worry with, to the dismay of many. 
  13. Other teams early cuts

    Going to be really disappointed if we can't make a run at Weddle...though, who knows how he feels about coming to NC.    Mario Williams is a big name potentially, and one who probably could still be good here.  If the price is right, would love it. 
  14. Well, being that we're already hated .. Sign Hardy

    After the PR nightmare he was here in 2014, and then the PR nightmare he was for Dallas...why on Earth would Gettleman touch him? As a football player, sure.  In the locker room?  Maybe.  But as a franchise, with his history here, what on God's green earth would make anyone even think there was a chance the Panthers bring Hardy back and open themselves up to the negative criticism that comes along with it?  I loved Hardy the player...but holy poo, if you think the team even thinks about touching Greg Hardy again, don't procreate. 
  15. Well Isn't That Convenient...

        At least some media members are shedding light on the shitty calls
