  3. Some updated news about potential owners to share & where the process stands. From 8:00 am this morning. Pretty good read. Some excerpts. http://www.espn.com/blog/carolina-panthers/post/_/id/29281/steelers-minority-owner-so-far-leads-short-list-of-potential-bidders-for-panthers Ha! I said so: Spring meeting in Atlanta on May 21st. Also guessed that the discovery period wasn't ended and bidding had not begun. I also said to not believe anything about potential owners until the final bidding begins. And to support that statement: Honest, I did not have anything to do with writing this article. But I should be paid just the same .........

  6. David Newton ESPN Staff Writer The NFL's investigation into an allegation by Marty Hurney's ex-wife that she was harassed by the Panthers' interim general manager could come as soon as today, multiple sources told ESPN.com. If cleared – and indications are that will be the case – Hurney still is expected to be named the fulltime GM. Hurney's ex-wife withdrew the harassment charge in court after a judge denied her attempt at a restraining order, but the NFL continued with its investigation headed by Lisa Friel. Hurney has been on paid administrative leave.
  7. Pretty much nails it: Carolina Panthers Wide Receiver: 2017 second-round pick Curtis Samuel flashed enough in limited opportunities to have an inside track on Carolina’s 2018 third receiver job, but he can’t be counted on as a surefire starter. Devin Funchess is entering his contract year, and the Panthers have next to nothing at wideout beyond that. Greg Olsen’s advancing age (33 in March) further solidifies pass catcher as a primary need. Under vertical-oriented new OC Norv Turner, the Panthers should emphasize adding a downfield threat. Offensive Line: The Panthers’ line struggled in both 2016 and 2017 in part due to injuries but largely to sheer ineffectiveness. Ex-GM Dave Gettleman whiffed badly on his five-year, $55.5 million investment on LT Matt Kalil. Stud LG Andrew Norwell’s contract is up, and he will command top dollar atop an otherwise barren interior O-Line market. C Ryan Kalil announced 2018 will be his final season. Defensive Line: Cornerback also warrants a mention after CBs James Bradberry and Daryl Worley’s underwhelming sophomore campaigns, and slot CB Captain Munnerlyn’s apparent late-season falling out with the coaching staff. Up front, the Panthers need to replace free agent DT Star Lotulelei, while DE Julius Peppers’ contract has expired after the 38-year-old led the team in sacks (11). Typically, Ron Rivera’s team has emphasized defensive line over secondary when deciding how to value assets.
  8. Listening to Darin Gantt, no real good is going to come from this untimely accusation and dismissal. He doesn't appear as high on our prospects a.k.a our "Rooney Rule compliance," and says this Hurney situation could blow up in the franchise's face no matter how you slice it. "So in the short term, the Panthers are likely going to choose who handles those duties while the league does its thing. Sticking with Hurney would likely cause some (more) public relations backlash, but hiring one of their other candidates will cause plenty of football problems. None of the candidates they interviewed last week has any meaningful background with coach Ron Rivera and his staff, the team’s scouts or the player personnel on hand." Gantt points to all the coming decisions in free agency that the Panthers have to make and says that it's, "Probably more work than a guy who needs directions to the executive bathroom is going to be able to handle efficiently. Drafts are projects months in the making, and a new G.M. will be cramming for a final without notes." Gantt goes on about how this may look kinda crazy to a new owner, and alludes to people's jobs bring on the line if this thing turns into a complete dumpster fire. "The people involved in the Panthers’ decision-making process have known Hurney for years, and have known that his divorce was a bad one (by the standards in which even the good ones are awful)...If they keep him now, there’s a better chance for stability on the football side for the coming season, which increases the chances for stability elsewhere in the organization under new ownership. If they don’t and the team struggles in front of the new boss, the changes in the building are going to be bigger than one man, one free agent or one draft pick." I would say that this is just a case of Gantt being Gantt, but he does bring up some reasonable points. I do believe it was him who basically said that everyone knows Hurney is going to get the job (and how the Rooney Rule was being mocked yet again), but at least he is getting down to the real reasons why he believed that Hurney may have been---oh, snap, be---the best choice (and maybe even the front office's thinking behind it). http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/02/07/time-is-not-on-panthers-side-for-hurney-decision/
  9. 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.

  13. 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.
  14. To the practice squad That's right, Arizona's 4th round pick OG Dorian Johnson added to the PS.
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. Nice to see something positive in relation to Butler. Will update if he posts more.

  20. 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.
