Steve Reed speculates < 53 come cut time

He's probably right. Get rid of the chaff and keep the wheat.

Keep room for what's out there.

My thinking is the Panthers will cut deeper than 53 to leave a few roster spots open for guys they’ll sign once other teams make some cuts -- particularly at cornerback, defensive line and offensive guard. Coach Ron Rivera admitted after Thursday night’s preseason finale against Pittsburgh that the Panthers will actively be looking to add help from outside the organization, acknowledging those three positions are certainly areas of need.

“We have to look at everything,” Rivera said. “Not just our 53 but our practice squad players as well and what potentially could be out there. We will most certainly have to be diligent as the waiver wires hit and in our selecting process we will have to be very efficient with it.”

Here's a thought - does a FA pickup come in (for any position) and get the start next week at AZ? Or do you think all starters are locked in at this point for week one?

There is def a need at CB,DT,RG, and T.

DT is usually a plug and play position with vets, OG would probably need a bit of practice with CB being a toss up between zone and man coverages.

Pretty much anyone out there on the waiver can come in and start at our RG.

Leonard Davis please

I'd be happy with Steve's prediction IF Fiametta goes to IR, don't want to see him cut.

True. I guess when I had the thought, was thinking more along the lines of DT or CB. I guess if we can find a corner capable of starting ahead of Captain, that would be nice.

I'd like for Felton to make the team - guy is a bruiser, and would lay some good blocks for DWill and Stew.

He'd make the team with Fiametta on IR, which is my point.

If we could get Pat+Jamal Williams and form our own Williams wall and sign Davis at RG I would be very excited about this season. We would have the potential to be a very dangerous team, pipe dream however.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
