  1. What started as a search on Orlando Brown, and perusing different scouting reports, has led me to some skepticism regarding this draft class as a whole. Not to say that there won't be your usual surprises, revelations and busts, but I think that maybe we should go into the draft with more of an open mind because at many positions there isn't necessarily a big gap between the first and third rounders this year. Yes, there is the Combine, Senior Bowl and East-West Shrine Game, but that thought is not likely going to change that much because the preponderance of the guys have been scouted for years. But, like Matt Miller said, here's to hoping that we find that gem. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2743367-matt-millers-scouting-notebook-is-this-the-worst-draft-class-of-the-decade This is pre-2017 season, but here's an ex-NFL guy on Brown: http://www.profootballweekly.com/lists/2017/05/30/eb51f897f8ef46dca99509c96f0b19e4/index.xml?page=1 Whether he progressed in these specific areas, I don't know, but perhaps someone can give us insight into that. Where you at Big Ugly purveyors...? Walter Football may (or may not) have some updated info. http://walterfootball.com/draft2018OT.php I am a WR guy, and I've already let you know how I feel about the class in the other thread, and reading some others' thoughts on the subject, my mind hasn't changed. I told you that you might want to value the free agents a little more, and Cleveland.com's Matt Goul agrees. I've already seen a few posts on here bemoaning some quality DE and DT prospects deciding to continue their college careers and thereby making this class weaker at the positions, so I really don't know what to think about this either. We never know how the draft is going to go, but there should be some quality defensive backs available. One thought is that perhaps teams will make a run on QBs, and will push other quality players down, but even the QBs aren't necessarily first round material, and many believe that there isn't a big difference between the projected first rounder(s) and the subsequent rounds. And, even if there is a rush, because the draft is not really loaded with true first rounders, then we're not necessarily going to be gaining a whole lot if teams decide to pick QBs in front of us. Like I said, DBs are intriguing, as well as RBs, but perhaps there isn't enough of a distinction to justify taking one in the first. I don't know. I think that this draft and strategy is going to be wide open as for what actually happens. As such, at least to me, if there is someone to be gained in free agency at any need-based position, then we might wanna go after them. Look over this article to familiarize yourself with the "players" in the 2018 draft at every position. It's not too long, and at least it will put some people on your mind. And, by all means, give us your thoughts. On an off note, with the daft class being a little "meh" as it is, perhaps the Hurney haters will find comfort in knowing that there is not too much to screw up or lose. I read somewhere (in different words) that this might be the perfect draft to trade down and amass more picks so that you can throw a little more darts on the board and see if they stick. Moreover, it might be a good draft to roll the dice and divvy up a few picks to get who you want in free agency also. We'll see.
  2. @Panthers to interview Norv Turner for offensive coordinator, get ready for Bang 8's, Deep Digs, Power Run game, and a ton of shifts on offense. His style will challenge his players. Outstanding offensive MIND — Torry Holt (@BigGame81

  5. Leave everything out there. Every Panther player out there today gave Ron everything they had. It wasn't enough but we should be proud of our team and our season.
  6. To the practice squad That's right, Arizona's 4th round pick OG Dorian Johnson added to the PS.
  7. This is a revenge game, call it extra motivation to lighten it up. However, this is "The Greatest Panther"s(top3 arguably) former team his last two years he put in work with those guys. And after last year they played him said he was finsished I remember reading this article and found it. https://www.totalpackers.com/2017/03/packers-also-ignored-julius-peppers/ I believe he's gonna be fired all the way up we know what's at stake this is a veteran team who went to the big one two years ago but as far as a little bit of intel a whole lot of aggressive anger towards the team that didn't even think you could play now your headed to Hawaii(if it's there). Julius and this Dline is coming and we blitz all dam game nowadays he's gonna wanna show Mike and staff you should of put a offer out there I'm worth it. That was a slap in the face especially with his current year no offers. I believe somebody gonna pay for that either Huntley or Rodgers will see.
  8. This year’s Panthers defense is more dangerous than the 2015 unit that went to Super Bowl 50. The secondary is better, and first-year coordinator Steve Wilks runs a blitz-intensive scheme. This is a radical change from ex-DC Sean McDermott, a shrewd but judicious blitz-caller. Most teams that blitz a lot need matchup corners. The Panthers, however, are so fast at linebacker that they can afford to consistently blitz out of zone. Instead of four underneath defenders protecting their single-high coverage, there are only three. But the three are Luke Kuechly, Thomas Davis and Shaq Thompson. It might as well be four. Expect more blitzing this Sunday; the Panthers will see it as a way to defend Minnesota’s ground game and force Case Keenum to dink-and-dunk like he did last week against a Falcons defense that held the Vikings to 14 points. https://www.si.com/nfl/2017/12/08/week-14-panthers-defense-philip-rivers-gerald-everett-jameis-winston-cowboys-run-game-giants
  9. The Panthers offense came out after halftime trailing the Saints 14 - 21. On 3rd down and 4* I believe it was, the Defense jumped into the Neutral zone, causing a reaction from the Panthers Offensive line, but there was no call. That is the very definition of a Neutral Zone Infraction. Then, THE EXACT same thing happened for the Panthers defense; almost on the same part of the field as well. Yet, the refs instantly threw multiple flags and awarded the Saints 5 yards and a replay of down. One of the worst missed calls that I have ever seen. Literally a mirror image if you watch both plays, but one is called, one is not. Granted, we wouldn't have won the game on this call because we played very Poorly in all phases of the game today, but it killed our opening drive and gave the Saints even more momentum coming out of half time. Can anybody find the .gif's of these 2 plays and post them here? Because I lost all composure after that one.
  10. Nice to see something positive in relation to Butler. Will update if he posts more.
  11. T Matt Kalil, 36.3 overall grade Kalil struggled to block Bears edge defender Pernell McPhee and Co., as the former Minnesota Viking surrendered 7 total pressures including a sack and a hit. He also struggled in run blocking, as Panthers’ rushers gained just 14 yards on 7 carries when running left.
  12. This is ESPN.com's top headline right now.
  13. Man its a great day to be a panther. Couple quick things that I saw that impressed. 1. Offensive Communication- Specifically on the oline. Larsen is learning quickly and it seemed as if Cam made it a point to help a little when the Pats showed pressure. Trai seemed to be communicating too. All this leads to Kalil knowing where to be as well. So thats a positive. 2. Receivers and Backs- We are starting to get seperation. Funchess had the best game of his career and gave a middle finger to you doubters on this board and I love it. He has been playing very well for us this year and I think he took a big step forward today. Dickson filled in his roll nicely. Mccaffrey, Mccaffrey'd. Minus the fumble stew ran well overall great show by our skill players on O. 3. SHULA calls a great game? He put us in positions to win. Gave Cam outlets on the plays we were looking to push the ball down the field. Would like to see him be a bit more aggressive with a lead, and that goes for ron, wilks and the defense too. But that has typically been what we do, unfortunately. 4. RECORDS SET, and a win AGAINST THE PATS! J-stew surpasses DWILL for all-time franchise rushing leader. Cam surpasses Delhomme for all-time leaders in wins for a panthers Qb and we beat the pats. Man what a day! 5- Cam is back! There was some negatives and those will be addressed. But we all should be proud of this ball team today! For those of you that counted us out. Just dont bother posting anymore, you should be banned to strictly lurking for a 12 month sentence. GO PANTHERS!
  14. Found this youtube channel and I like the videos they produce. Not too hype, not too low, paced well, not too much analysis that would put you to sleep. Here's their video about last week. Sorry it's so large. ??? Do recommend subscribing.

  16. Top 5 Grades: G Andrew Norwell, 85.1 overall grade G Trai Turner, 84.0 overall grade LB Luke Kuechly, 80.4 overall grade C Tyler Larsen, 80.0 overall grade HB Christian McCaffrey, 79.1 overall grade Performances of Note: QB Cam Newton, 40.9 overall grade It was a tough day for quarterback Cam Newton as he ended with 167 yards passing and three interceptions. One of those interceptions was deflected off HB Christian McCaffrey, the other two will fall on Newtons shoulders. All three of his interceptions came while under no pressure, as he finished 13 of 21 averaging 4.8 yards per attempt when the pocket was clean. Newton will look to bounce back next week against a tough opponent in the Patriots.
  17. The Carolina Panthers offensive line depth chart has become a little more clear now that the OTA practices have come to an end and the Panthers Mini-Camp is set to begin. Here is how the depth chart is shaking out according to my eyes and notes... Left Tackle Michael Oher - Biggest question mark on the entire team. Jonathan Martin - Looking to revitalize his career Martin Wallace - Has earned a few second string reps David Foucault - On the bubble Right Tackle Mike Remmers - Has also spent limited reps at second string center) Daryl Williams (R) - Getting plenty of one on one coaching Nate Chandler - Chandler hasn't practiced, recovering from injury, slight speculation here. Left Guard Andrew Norwell - Future pro bowler? Amini Silatolu - Last year's starter Tyronne Green - 5th year journeyman our of Auburn, injury issues. Right Guard Trai Turner - Road grading guard Chris Scott - Appears to be in good shape, can also backup tackle position Jordan McCray - Tryout player looking for a chance Center Ryan Kalil - Leader of the offense. Brian Folkerts - Solid backup, used as TE on some rhino packages Ronald Patrick - South Carolina kid looking for a NFL home. Taking a quick glance of this lineup, it is easy even for the most casual fans to see a tremendous upgrade over the offensive line from this time last season. Three of the five starting offensive line positions have been upgraded tremendously (Remmers, Turner, Norwell) and the jury is still out on one position (Oher). The quality of depth found is also much improved with former starters moving back to backup positions where they probably should have been to begin with.

  20. I saw the computer comp on NFLN, and Mike Mayock said it was an interesting comparison---his tone giving me the feeling that he was actually considering it to be somewhat true, so I looked him up, and maybe... Nelson Agholor looks fairly smooth and looks to be a threat on punt returns. An unnamed NFC scout apparently believes that his ceiling is as a slot receiver. Perhaps the scout is right, but it sure does look like he can play on the outside when I look at his highlights, and he looks fairly physical. As for speed, he ran a 4.42 which is almost identical to Maclin's 4.45
