OK, never really introduced myself but I am always on the forums (Carolina Panthers) several times a day and have been for the last few years. I rarely post anything but enjoy reading what everyone has on their mind during the good and bad times. Year to year I am always optimistic the Panthers will beat everyone and will make the playoffs until they are mathmatically eliminated.

On a side note I would like to share a video I put together for my son Fletcher. I wanted to post this but thought by introducing myself I could post here without being hounded by the Forum Police because I did not post in the right section.

Fletcher tore his ACL in a freak accident during football practice on Sept. 15, 2011. He was only 8 yrs old at the time. We found Dr. Kocher at Children's Hospital Boston who specializes in Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery Sports Medicine. We flew to Boston for surgery on Dec. 13, 2011. Fletcher endured several months of intensive physical therapy and was released to play sports again in June 2012. After a summer league of basketball and new baby sister being born, he was ready once again to strap on his helmet.

Hope you enjoy the video. There are several pictures at the beginning to set up the story. It was great watching him getter stronger at practice each week. By season end he was the work horse running back and had no fear pounding it up the middle.

Good to hear your son has bounced back, the ironic that while he was recovering, he was wearing a Adrian Peterson jersey, and now AP is looking like the AP before the injury and your son is also back on the field making plays.

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
