Pat Yasinskas the voice of reason??

Yasinskas isn't the voice of reason, I am. He is just saying almost the same thing I said and got crap for by the addition by subtraction folks and the everything is better crowd. It is obvious to everyone who is not delusional that we are not better off with this losses. The good news is that it isn't over yet. But we need to be active in free agency and have a good draft in order to be decent this year. His comparison to 2001 has also been mentioned on this board as well although not by me. I don't think it is going to be that bad but without reinforcements there is no way we make the playoffs.......

I keep hearing how Richardson is worried about a labor lockout. I have to ask what doest his have to do with purging the roster? And why is Richardon seemingly mountiing a one man show with regards to this issue? Mr. Richardson you owe the fans a winner not some self serving effort to stand up against this whole labor thing.

Wont get it-- Just look at the 50..

He wants the Panthers to be the "NFL's Team", not Carolinas Team...

:confused:

Pat Y has ALWAYS been the voice of reason. Some people here just hate him because he tells it like it is. I think someone even told me that he hated the panthers just because they released Kris Jenkins. LMAO!!

He isn't mounting a one man show. It just seems that way in Carolina. The Jets dumped a lot of contracts this offseason. The Chargers cut a couple of bad contracts that they wouldn't have in a normal capped year. And the Redskins actually cut more players than the Panthers have. Also, look around the league at the teams that usually are big spenders in FA. Dallas and Washington haven't signed one big free agent. Really, outside of the bottom headers, and at this point I would include Chicago in that group, no one is spending a lot of money.

When you look at the situation, really all parties are correct in some way or another. JR is taking advantage of the uncapped year, he is probably dumping some contracts because of the possible lockout year, the team isn't better than it was last year, the team can become better with younger players stepping up. And I agree with Yas that the whole picture isn't able to be seen yet. We still don't know what other FA will be signed and what will happen with the draft.

I said this in another thread and I will say it again. Once we find out what is going to happen to Hurney, which a decission should be made soon, then we will have a much better understanding of what all is going on and what the plan is going to be.

Hoover made less than a Mill a year and only had one year left on his contract. Then again I'm a little biased because he's our hometown boy.

I believe Hoover's back problems played a role in his release, along with the fact that he has been getting nicked up more and more the last couple of years. I think they feel he is breaking down and just don't want to spend a million on a guy they aren't confident will even be able to play much this year.

If Peppers was still in Carolina, everyone on this board and everywhere else would be talking about how we were making big improvements across the board. Really, his position (and arguably Lewis') are the only two where we don't look to be upgrading.

  • Hoover was old and experienced, but Fiametta is younger and faster and has a year of NFL coaching under his belt.
  • Johnson rushes the passer better than Brayton, and has always played the run well.
  • Leonard collapses the pocket better than Kemo, and showed signs of being as good at commanding a double-team in his short stint last season. He's improved every year he's been in the league.
  • Moose is ancient by NFL standards, and we had a big need there before the purge.
  • Jake may come back and play well again like Warner did, but Moore needed to be given the keys.
  • Diggs was old and serviceable, but Connor has all the speed, all the instincts, and can still get better.
  • We tried the deep kickoff thing, now it looks like we're going to try good coverage instead. That worked when Kasay was younger, he's never consistently kicked them out of the end zone.

The ONLY position where we are genuinely worse off than last year at this time is at RDE, and we have Everette Brown ready to show us if he can generate pressure there. There are really only three questions on the defensive line.

  1. Can Brown produce at Peppers old spot?
  2. Can Irvin/Tyler/Hayden/whoever? effectively replace Lewis?
  3. Can the Panthers find some quality depth at the Defensive End position?

Toss in the Wide Receiver issue, and you really have three areas of concern. That's not too bad for an 8-8 team. The last NFC South team that went 8-8 was the Saints, and they had serious holes in their secondary and linebacker, no pass-rush, and questions on the interior of their offensive line. I think things turned out well for them, right?

Yas is selling papers again. Be patient.

If Johnson is so good at pass rushing than why did Brayton get more sacks. I suspect that Johnson has less opportunities against the run but as many against the pass.

Louis started one game for us and 5 in career. He has one sack in his career. How exactly can you tell anything about him yet, particularly since he will be coming off IR.

Connors hasn't shown much. Anderson has done a much better job so far when Davis went down. Connor is not very good running with receivers and has little speed backing up. He is much better playing the run. He will likely be in a backup role this year.

We are worse off in many positions and have little depth. I usually agree with you on many things but not this time. The good news is that we have time to get better and improve. But to say we are worse off at one position is drinking more than just Koolaid.

Yeah because I really identify with guys under 35. They aren't even close to old farts yet.

Fail again, stalker.
