Deems May: Panthers have 2 untouchable players

83 posts in this topic

I have no problem with the 'core player' approach, provided you have someone in charge who's better at determining which players to build around than Marty Hurney was.

Cam,is still learning defensive schemes.Why so many sacks and or fumbles cant get to 3rd and 4th options fast enough

Cam, Keek, Kalil

Although I wouldn't just give away our other guys- like CJ, Dwan, Norman, TD, Beason, Hardy, Alexander, LaFell, Olsen

they are not going to gut the team.When hurney was fired,it served notice that no one is irreplaceable.The rest of season players are playing for a job.either here or somewhere else.But big contract no production,you are gone

Cj and Hardy are not going anywhere. Took us to damn long to rebuild this defensive line, Ryan Kalil too.

I would add CJ to the list before Kalil. CJ's contract is very reasonable for a top defensive end and he is playing up to his contract. Kalil is paid a ton for a non-premium position, and he has a $5 million bonus payable next year.

I surprised some of you mention guys like LaFell. He is a marginal #2 receiver. Why he would be considered a definite keeper is puzzling to me.

I think we have as many as some playoff teams. I mean how many do the Colts have? Two. How about Cincinnati? I mean in the NFL "untouchable" needs to be at QB, one on defense, and your coach. Everything else can be riddled with players who will shuffle in and out. When the Giants won their first Super Bowl with Eli they had like 2 untouchables and a good coach. We have mostly what we need to make a run as early as next year but have to get the coach right

not busting your chops or anything but they had a few more than 2.

also....go back and read what the fans were saying about their HC before he won a SB

I do have a question. If we kept TD, do you think he would be content in playing a back up role? I don't want to see another situation where we are trying to play all four of our linebackers, and in the end they are off rhythm because they keep getting taken off the field. That's why Kuechly had the impact he's had since the time Beason was placed on IR. Sure, playing his natural position helped, but his productivity is mostly credited for now playing more than 20% of defensive snaps. That whole situation and set up by Rivera was just dumb-dumb. I would rather release TD before going through that again.
