I hope not. McClain was no prize, but he showed a heck of a lot more than Fua ever did. Just surprised that McClain went first... Then again, I mentioned during the preseason that I thought he had fell into RR's doghouse because he kept dropping in rotation.


Both of those DTs will never make an impact. I'm glad we brought in a vet DT with some size on him to help Ron plug the middle. Just two beefy pigs on the line allowing Kuechly and our other LBs to fly around and punish people.

I hope that rookie RB for Tampa is ready to have his ass stomped

Ok I'm an old fuc. What the hell is an UT? If I remember from way back when single wing t O was in vogue. The Defense has a 0-1 technique depending on shade to strong side. A 3 technique and a 5 tech. then you have the 7 tech. Is this not the same or has football passed me by. Please enlighten me and bring me up to the hip way of speaking.


A UT is the, usually, smaller DT in a 4-3 that is used more for penetration than run stuffing. Most of the time they are a in a 3 tech. I would guess most people use UT and 3 tech interchangeably.

After the number that the staff determined they were going to carry at each position was set, you would not cut a QB, WR, or OL to add another DT. The only one you mentioned that could be argued us Fua. However, as many of us get...Fua us a NT and we added an UT. You cut an UT in order to sign a better UT.

I am amazed at how difficult it is for much of the huddle to understand. I thought we had a more knowledgeable group than that...but apparently I was wrong.



Didn't claim to know everything. Don't know who pissed on your cheerios. Maybe you should stick to eating hot turds and making videos for us to enjoy.

I don't really give a poo who they cut, so long as they are making an improvement to the team. I just hope that Norman can lock down that #2 CB position, so that next year's draft, we get a first round DT that will actually have the chance of being a beast for us for years to come.

Tired of our DLine looking like a NY Subway turnstile...hopefully R-Ed and D-Ed can fix this for us.

Herein lies the problem. There are three basic ways to add personell. Draft, FA, and Trade.

Where we will draft next year, high 20s, MAY yeild a DT. But, he will basically be a 2nd, as the pickings start to thin by then. So you may not get that dominant DT you are looking for.

As for FA. This may just be a possibiltiy next year. If Rivera is pleased with the other two levels, and the right guy becomes available, we may just invest in an elite young DT to put us over the top. I think we will be adding one very good FA next year. And if Rivera thinks it is a DT. I am all for that.

Trades are rare. Especially for top shelf talent. It is just one of those practices the Panthers rarely use. But I will add, that this regime seems to be willing to upgrade when options become available. So a trade is not out of the question.

We are going in the right direction. We are willing to upgrade. We are already knocking on the door. The future starts next week. And it looks a lot better than it did 6 months ago. But no where near as bright as where we are heading.

With our cap situation I very much doubt we're going to sign an elite young DT. For us we're going to have to draft an elite DT.

We kept Fua over McClain? What a joke.

I really hope Edwards is what a lot of people around here think he is...


Fua also plays special teams. Don't think I saw McClain on st.

This is surprising, I haven't even seen Fua too much this Preseason, or at least I didn't notice.

kearse IMO was the most productive interior lineman during the preseason. he got decent pentration at the 3 & also held his ground when double teamed
