I'm almost positive they are college pads from Oregon. LaFell wears his purple LSU pads. (I'm sure they get new sets every year, not literally the same pads from college.) Several NFL players wear pads from their school. I find it odd the NFL allows it with how strict they are on dress codes.

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.

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
