Roster Battles

76 posts in this topic

From what I hear, Panthers have had scouts at numerous preseason games and camps. I don't know if this happens every season or what. Do not be surprised if we bring in a new DT or even CB/FS/SS.

I actually pin that return on Tolbert.

Holliday ran right past him and Tolbert wasn't able to get off his block.

No excuse for a guy of Tolberts' stature to not be able to get off his block.

Any who, we will learn and only get better.

Kearse over Norwood.

Final roster spot:

Assuming that we keep three QBs (we will), and that seven linebackers are being kept for certain roles (Anderson, Beason, Keek, Davis, Onatolu, Senn, Applewhite). Defense

DE: Johnson, Hardy, Alexander, Keiser, Norwood

LB: Beason, Keuchly, Anderson, Davis, Applewhite, Onatolu, Senn

Applewhite is a DE not a LB. Phillips is the backup at MLB and he will definitely make the 53 man roster. Norwood wont make the team.

We have our starting FB on kickoffs?

Yes, lol I watched it on preseason replay.

The reason why is because he was actually San Diego's special teams ace last year. He picked up 12 tackles on special teams last year.

Look for either TD, Hogan, or Gettis to be put on the new Marquis player IR, leaving them available after week 8. I still think it's possible TD retires. Another possibility is to put one of these guys on the PUP.

Don't see Norwood making it.

If we cut Kearse, we are crazy unless we pick someone else up. The reality is, Kearse is a better player than Fua. Both were rookies last year so development curves are probably similar, and Fua has shown me absolutely nothing.

Hartsock had a bad game Saturday; don't think he makes it.

Nortman makes it. Medlock should.

Ogemdi Nwagbuo might make it over Kearse. Nwagbuo actually played well during the time he got this past Saturday.

Agree that he played well. Is he a nose or a 3-tech?

If I were cutting a nose, I'd cut Fua.

I don't see Norwood or Neblett making this team. (Only because Neblett misses 4 games)

I do see us bringing in a DT and possibly secondary help after teams trim to final rosters.

I agree that they might bring in some DL help from outside. I would be a lot more comfortable with that. hopefully someone to replace neblett and someone who can put some heat on the QB

Applewhite is a DE not a LB. Phillips is the backup at MLB and he will definitely make the 53 man roster. Norwood wont make the team.

he was listed as a DE when the roster was first published. and I beleive Keek is the backup MLB, and Senn can play third string. Don't see how they have room for phillips.

As for the previously mentioned Tutu. I agree, he wouldn't be my choice. My choice would be either murphy or Gettis (after he gets off PUP) or Edwards. I still don't think Gettis really adds much that murphy doesn't add though. the reason I have tutu there is the same reason nanee started for most of last year. RR seems to like him.

    • Hello fellow huddles. I've been a Panther fan since 2003 and usually have had the ability to watch all the games until I started at a major retail chain store in 2016.  I'm also at the bottom of the totem pole there so I have the worst scheduling hours  (ex. I have to often do a late shift one day and be back at work for an early shift the next morning , always work weekends) and 99 percent of the time I'm scheduled to work on Sundays. Apparently there's already a bunch of people in my department and elsewhere who already have Sundays off as part of their availability, so I'm guessing this is one of the reasons why I'm ALWAYS scheduled to work a late shift every Sunday it seems which is pretty much a guarantee I will miss the games this season. I've got maybe 4 days of paid time off accumulated so I guess I could pick a few games out of the season to be off on. Logic tells me that I'd probably be better served to let that keep stacking and just take a week of PTO vacation in July or something but it just sucks ass being a huge football fan and miss most of the action for the first time in my life.  I pretty much had to take this job at least in the short term last year, or just take the job that was willing to hire me the soonest honestly.  Its most certainly my fault for majoring in a dumb ass unemployable field of study in college , so I won't waste time bemoaning my living situation at this point. I'm just trying to figure out of theres anyway to at least have Sundays off. I'm guessing I could actually change my availability with the company but that's going to murder my weekly hours , I'm already part time if I miss any given day during the week I get significantly less money for rent/food/other poo I need.  I live in a small ish town in eastern NC right now. 95 percent of the jobs out here seem to be at retail/fast food oriented . I've applied to alot of jobs closer to major areas like Raleigh , Durham for the past half year but no dice so far. At this point, I'm not even sure if its possible for me to get a non retail job. Its pretty much the only thing that I have experience doing and I'm 26 so.. part of me wishes I just went to a branch of the military like alot of my high school classmates did, or gone to some trade school, or did some on the job training for a technical career out of the gate from high school, but you can say hindsight is 20/20 as the cliche goes.  The immediate suggestions would be to DVR / Record the games which isn't an option for me , can't afford expensive  100+ dollar TV packages when thats  ten percent of my monthly income , I make ends meet with this job and thats right about it.  For whatever reason I just assume that the average huddle is middle aged with a decent steady job and income living near a big city haha. Its just my imagination obviously, and what I observe through looking at pictures people post and stories they tell. Even if you don't really have much input on my senario, let me ask you this, was there ever a time in your 20s or just a time in your life where you just didn't have the ability / means to watch the games even though you still considered yourself a fan at the time? 
    • What can I make of Cameron Artis-Payne? What I don't think I can make - barring injuries - is a spot for him on this year's Panthers roster. He may surprise, but I'm not expecting it.
