10 Impact Players for the 2010 Season

4 posts in this topic


Matt Moore - Matt Moore's performance last year slammed the door on Jake Delhomme. This year we will see if that was a good decision. The Panthers drafted a younger insurance policy in Jimmy Clausen, but I don't believe he has a chance to challenge for a starting role based on Matt Moore nearly posting a QB rating of over 100. None the less, if Moore proves last year was a fluke, Clausen could find himself under center

Jon Beason - Jon Beason is coming off a Pro Bowl year. With the departure of Julius Peppers and the injury to Thomas Davis, he may see his tackle tally increase in 2010. Don't be surprised to see his sack total rise as well if the front four have trouble getting to the QB. For now, Beason is the undisputed backbone of the front seven.

Steve Smith - You don't have to make much of a case to include this guy on a list of impact players for any team. Steve Smith must be salivating with a QB upgrade in the works. Not only is he a consistent team leading receiver, he is a consistent threat that stretches the field every time he goes beyond 15 yards and opens up the running game for Stewart and Williams.

Richard Marshall - Cornerback Richard Marshall has made it official he's after a long term deal. The Panthers offered a tender and he took it. He will be trying to prove his worth this year. This extra motivation couldn't come at a better time for the team with the departure of feared pass rusher Julius Peppers. Marshall will try to prove he deserves a chunk of the change that Peppers frees up.

He should have a considerable number of passes thrown his way with Chris Gamble holding down the opposite corner. He was tied with Gamble for a team high four interceptions last year. This year his motivation will put him over the edge and he will lead the team.

Sherrod Martin - The Panthers traded Chris Harris back to the Bears as a gesture of faith towards Sherrod Martin. He will be under a lot of pressure to make that look like a well planned move. Sherrod is a young center fielder in a secondary who will have to cope with the loss of a ferocious pass rush off the edge, and will have to hang with receivers longer as a result. Luckily for him, he has two capable corners and a Nickelback in Captain Munnerlyn who have proven they can be of help.

Greg Hardy - You know those players that come out to the NFL and prove that you made a mistake passing over them? Well I think you're looking at the next one in Greg Hardy. Carolina doesn't have any stand-out defensive ends on their roster and I would bet that he will be starting on one side before the season is over. He was downgraded due to injury, and I think the risk associated with it is well overrated for a player of his age.

You heard it here first, you're looking at the 2010 Carolina Panthers sack leader.

Eric Norwood - With another injury to Thomas Davis, Eric Norwood is next in line to get in the game. I wouldn't be surprised to see him come in on short yardage to go situations, as he provides a little more bulk than either of the other two LB's. On a team that plays lighter defensive ends, he may provide a better fit in any situation.


Chris Gamble - ???

DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart - You can't talk about impact players on the Panthers without mentioning these two. Deangelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart were the only 2 backs on the same team to post 1000 yards rushing on the same team. These 2 are the backbone of the Carolina Pathers success. By the average yard per carry, if either one of these guys got the all of the carries last season, he would have broken Eric Dickerson's record for most rushing yards in a season.

They present a strong argument for the best backfield tandem in the NFL. I look for Carolina to continue to have a top 5

There was nothing printed about Gamble, curiously. Personally, I question his one-on-one tackling ability.

    • The first attack on U.S. soil for which ISIS claimed responsibility—a 2015 shooting in Garland, Texas—was instigated by the FBI, according to an investigation by CBS' "60 Minutes" and government documents obtained by an attorney involved in the case. In a macabre twist, an undercover FBI agent who encouraged one of the shooters to "tear up Texas" was also physically present at the scene of the crime, mere feet away from the shooters. Prior to that, a separate informant was paid $132,000 by the FBI to pretend for three years to be friends with the future shooter. When the man found out his supposed friend had taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations on behalf of the intelligence agency, he withdrew from his religious community and eventually fell into online religious extremism. ...... On May 3, 2015, two Islamist extremist gunmen opened fire at an exhibit for cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in Garland, Texas. The contest featured key figures in the Islamophobia industry, including anti-Muslim demagogue Pamela Geller and extreme-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders. The intentionally provocative exhibit was swarming with security, including dozens of police officers, snipers and a SWAT team. The heavily armed attackers injured a security guard outside the building before they were themselves promptly shot by snipers and killed. ISIS soon after took credit for the shooting. There is no evidence that ISIS organized the attack, but the shooters had been independently radicalized and were inspired by the genocidal extremist group. In the two years since, the Garland shooting has been used to justify a vast array of anti-Muslim policies and measures. A new investigation by the investigation team at "60 Minutes," nevertheless, shows that the FBI was deeply implicated in the attack. ..... After the trial, Maynard was given 60 pages of declassified messages between an undercover FBI agent and one of the shooters, Elton Simpson. These documents showed that, less than three weeks before the attack, the FBI agent had told Simpson to "Tear up Texas." This "to me was an encouragement to Simpson," the attorney told "60 Minutes." The government denied that the text constituted incitement, but the FBI's involvement did not end there. "60 Minutes" reported that the U.S. government admitted in an affidavit that the undercover FBI agent also physically "traveled to Garland, Texas, and was present ... at the event." "I was shocked," Maynard told the news program. "I was shocked that the government hadn't turned this over. I wanted to know when did he get there, why was he there?" Documents the government gave to the attorney showed that the FBI agent had in fact been in a car behind the two shooters at the time of the attack. The undercover FBI agent even used his cell phone, several feet away, to film the building's security guard seconds before he was shot by the Islamist extremists. "It's stunning," Maynard told "60 Minutes." "The idea that he's right there 30 seconds before the attack happens is just incredible to me." ..... The undercover FBI agent fled the scene of the crime before being stopped at gunpoint and detained by Garland police. ..... Dabla Deng, the informant, pretended to be Simpson's friend for three years, "60 Minutes" reported. Deng taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations. When Simpson "found out that this guy was spying on him, and taping him and then finding out that the government was doing that, I think something clicked in him," recalled Usama Shami, president of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix. "And the mosque, we couldn't do anything." "He felt that the mosque had abandoned him?" Anderson Cooper asked. "Yes. And he felt that a lot of people had abandoned him. And that's why he stopped coming to the mosque," Shami said. After this, Simpson moved in with his friend Nadir Soofi, who "60 Minutes" noted "had just had a bitter break-up and the pizza parlor he owned was going out of business." The two alienated men drifted into extremist religious communities online, and were attracted by ISIS recruiters.
    • i actually took this test a year ago because i was talking to this girl who was a psych major and really invested in this test. then i was talking to this other girl who was also a psych major and she thought there wasn't much to it, she basically didn't have respect for it. if i took it today it'd probably line up the same. 
    •    There isn't a problem taking a tackle usually. The problem would be taking any of THESE OTs that high. If there was someone close to that, we would have risked so much on Kalil.
