anyone ever noticed the yellow shoulder pads that Stew has been wearing since he was drafted?

 

Yep. I was thinking the same thing.

 

Fantastic coverage as usual J.

Great Photo with Rivera holding the ball, impersonating a QB.

 

And I just started, but felt like saying this.

If Getts knew what he looked like wearing shorts, he would never wear shorts.

He's old enough and rich enough to wear whatever he wants

Is it just me or do the coaches really, really love Kelvin? He's really being treated like a thoroughbred and prized jewel. It appears they are convinced he's gonna be a star. I don't recall Luke, Star, or to an extent Cam being treated this way as rookies. They just light up when talking about him and he's the focal point of the off season.

Then again, it may just be added excitement because he fills a major hole this team has had for nearly a decade.

 

I know there was a lot of talk about Brandin Cooks and evidently he has been looking really good for N.O. early on, but more and more I get the feeling that Gettleman and staff got the exact guy they wanted. 

 

I wanted KB bad after watching a lot of ACC football this season (UNC fan), but waffled some in the off-season.  I've gotta just quit reading pre-draft "analyst" bullshit on guys who I've actually watched through the season.

Yes, Kelvin appears very good.

 

However, he can be the missing link (or at least the beginning/threshold) of a very good team.

 

Cam and Luke were the early foundations for the team, before they knew they were good. Star, etc., only added to it.

 

Kelvin, can make the Panthers legit for the next 10 years.

 

We'll see?

What's up with the knee?  Yikes.

 

 

With how he looks and gets around, he can't be healthy.  Seriously ... he should take advantage of the resources around him and spend some time with the strength & conditioning coaches.  Used to think 'nipple shorts' was funny ... now I just feel bad for him.

I always get a kick out of McDermott wearing Panthers gear. I know it's weird. I guess I expected him to have moved on by now.

OH, if you've actually watched a guy, you're the best one to make judgements on him vs media.

 

Just think of what you know of regarding the Panthers vs National media?

 

Most of these guys haven't watched teams play they talk about. It's all guess work, or Group Speak.

 

Even scouts, get stuff wrong often (which is why I didn't mind KB was drafted 28th), cause many times you have high draft picks that suck, and lower draft picks that end up being all pro players. It's a crap shoot in the end.

 

With KB; Gettleman and crew, obviously saw what you, I and other Panther fans did.

 

Can't wait to see the next Pre-Season, and eventually real games.

Godfrey also was no match for the strength of Brandon Williams. Williams has improved a great deal in pass protection.

Hope Swole Bones doesnt make a habit of blocking like this, he'll get flagged every time.

Fortunately for us however, even other GM's must have read the fears, just as they must have read/believed with Star last year for different reasons.  Turn on the tape, use the eyeball test, and it is what it is-an absolute thoroughbred of a football player that I would not trade for anyone in this entire draft class because it filled such a need with such quality. 

 

I just love saying it as I have so many times on this forum-his college coach said he would be a top 3 pick if he came back, he comes from a high school that has produced more NFL players than any other, won a national championship at F$U, and has physical skills that don't even currently exist in this league. 

 

Amazing.

"Holding, number 86, offense....ten yard penalty, replay the down."

 

 

 

That pic of KB though, damn.  I know he's big, but in that picture - maybe the depth perception - he looks freaking gigantic!

 

Excellent recap as always
