Sports Illustrated says Panthers and Broncos have had worst offseason in NFL

Recommended Posts

Most people forget we picked up Jonathan Martin as well. We quietly upgraded the line with 3 potential Tackles.

So maybe the Falcons and Jets would have the best records in the upcoming season? We will wait and see.

 

This is what kills me about the Jets.  They might have upgraded their defense immensely.  Granted, but in the end they are still going to have Geno Smith QBing their team.

Seriously, our offseason aside, the 49ers have had one of the worst off seasons of all time.

 

 

But yeah it's clear the Panthers have upgraded their roster so I don't know how that can be viewed as a negative. Well, I do know how and it's called lazy journalism.

 

 

I can tell you how:  Dave Gettleman doesn't do it the way the talking and writing-heads demand.

 

Ergo, he does it "wrong".

 

Nevermind back-to-back NFC South Championships, DG obviously doesn't know what he's doing.  The big-brains in the media keep trying to help him, but he keeps ignoring them.  How dare he!

If you make the media's job easier you get a better grade

Only reason to ever read SI for the NFL was Dr. Z.

Since he had a stroke and can't talk or write anymore, SI is dead to me. Doesn't matter if they offer free copies of Madden or FIFA or some other crap to subscribe.

I don't see how it's possible that anyone had a worse offseason than the 49ers.  That entire organization appears to be a dumpster fire right now.

After FA and the draft, one publication used their "formula" to rank offseason success and failure. I'm not linking the article but SI says we had the worst offseason while the Falcons and Jets have had the best. It's a topic of discussion on local sports radio this morning. I'm not so sure if I agree. Special Teams was a serious issue last season that lost us games. We have made significant upgrades that should have a positive effect on special teams play. Our WR core has improved. Left tackle is essentially a lateral move. We played an entire season without Greg Hardy already so from 2014 to 2015 DE is a push unless we see a jump from the young group opposite CJ. RB group should be improved with a healthy JStew and Tolbert and a younger compliment in draft pick Cam Artis-Payne. With what we have done, I'd rank our offseason at around middle of the pack in that 18-20 range. I wish LT was taken more seriously and I wish we could have seen Cam's contract signed, but the later is out of Nippleshorts' hands to a certain degree. But in the end our team improved. If a team improved, how can the offseason be worse than a team like the 49ers.

And this is how it's done folks...

After we win the division again the story will be that 'the Panthers persevered despite making a mess of the 2015 draft', and they'll ignore the contributions from any and all new players. If that won't fly, due to undeniable contributions from the draft picks and FA's, they'll just pretend they never gave us a bad offseason grade.

 

and redraft all our rookies in the top 2 rounds but never give us credit.

Funny that SI, a company that's reached a serious state of decline after its golden years of the 1970s and '80s, conveniently forgets to include the 49ers, a team that's reached a serious state of decline after its golden years of the 1970s and '80s.
