I don't expect anything at all. If he makes an impact at all and plays decent - good it's an improvement and I'll be happy about it. Now about that corner situation..........

he won't do anything just like our other dt's, he shouldn't even be on an nfl roster. luckily the panthers 2011 defensive line might be the worst in nfl history

Doom and and Gloom man......Doom and Gloom.:rolleyes:

This is most likely on the board somewhere but i did not see a new thread with it.

"Things happen. You know Michael Jordan got cut one time before. Cris Carter played five years before he made his first Pro Bowl, Michael Strahan six years. It's all on how you take the punches.

"There was a commercial two or three years ago with Dwyane Wade. If you fall down seven, stand up eight. That's the mentality I've been taking since I left San Francisco."

"As we looked at him, and talking with (general manager) Marty (Hurney), we thought this was a young man that might be being played out of position," head coach Ron Rivera said.

"We think he might be more of a three-technique tilt nose for us. A guy that's a gap control player. With his size and athleticism, we're hoping that translates to fit into what we want to do."

Balmer is encouraged.

"This may be the fitting piece," he said. "I'm excited about making this work.

"It definitely suits my strengths. We're going to penetrate, disrupt, fly around. I think I'm more built for what we do there."

I think he'll do well being back home both at 4-3 DT and in NC.

with what we have seen from the interior dline thus far its hard not to get excited about changes being made. he could easily prove invaluable from the jump imo

Maybe I'm being too optimistic, but I feel like he will be okay here. You can't teach size, which he has, and it's kind of unfair to judge a player that has been playing out of position since he's been in the league. At 24 years old, back in his home state, and playing for a defensive mind like Rivera, I think Balmer was a great pick up. It's a very low-risk acquisition, IMO. It's hard as a State fan, but I'm pulling for him bigtime. Thursday's game should give him a good look since the first teamers for Pittsburgh should be out by the 2nd series.
