Spoke with Jim Szoke on the phone...

Let's all hope Mr. Szoke is spot on outside of one little thing. i would like the draft/FA order to be LT-DT-CB-WR

I'd honestly rather fill our need at DT through FA... DT's are so totally hit and miss in the draft and it takes a few years to develop them unless it's a truly special talent.

On the Coach:

As I just said He believes Rivera will have one more year since the team was trending up at the end of the season per JR's request. Also he believes that Rivera will have success clauses for next year. Baisically Playoffs or bust. Then the new GM will have the right to hire anyone that he chooses.

This is probably my "worst scenario". A cap crippled team with a middling coach (who even Jay Cutler can out coach) in a "must win" situation from the owner. I now look forward to a new coaching staff in 2014 and perhaps we might get good enough to be a wildcard in 2015 just prior to Cam's contract being up..

!Genius!

Great job L-Town. BTW, I speak with Jim now and then, and he is one of the "Good Guys". Knows a helluva lot about this franchise. I last spoke to him about the Los Angeles rumour awhile back. He said basically that this team is a/will be a PERMANENT fixture in the Carolinas. (Think Cape Hatteras Light House or The Gaffney Peach)

It's always nice the hear this.

Me too but getting a top flight safety somewhere in there sure would be nice. Not running out of holes to fill on this team.

In a perfect world, we'd land a good (or 2) DTs and WR via free agency

Draft the BPA at either DB or OL then pick the other positition in the 2nd

We for sure wont be able to fill all out holes this off season

I just feel like Cam is the type of stud you dont find but once every 25 or 30 years and its asinine for anyone to ignore that

Hard to agree with this in light of the rookie class that came out this year. 25-30 years...really?

Cam's a generational talent right there with RG3 and Luck... dont be fooled by the media.

I never knew that generational was a word. Thanks TGOATC for using such a word.

Gross is going to be 33 this July and has not played that well this year. With almost a 12 million salary cap who we could dump to save almost 10 million this year, it becomes pretty attractive to look elsewhere.

i hate creating yet another hole when there are several others that need filling already, but that OL needs a reboot. only safe guy on it should be kalil. silatolu....maybe. the rest should be replaced/upgraded. i'd like for us to upgrade the OL coach as well. there's no reason that it should take weeks for the OL to gel like it has for years.
