What moves would U make as GM

13 posts in this topic

I see alot of post and arm chair quarterbacking about people would do this, would do that, should do this, should do that.. So if you were GM, what do you do? RR is staying so we dont need to hear your philosphys on who we should pick for head coach, but what other moves would you make. im not asking for peoples opinions on others post either.. just strictly, what would you do as gm. if you dont have nothing nice to say...stfu. cuz no one cares

personally, first thing, cut the fat, and dead weight. Players like Clausen need to be gone, they are taking up cap space and roster spots that could much better be utilized. I mean i would rather have a 4th string Left guard to rotate in and out than clausen on the side line. Second, find a REAL kicker. someone that can put points on the board. period.

asside from that, I like the talent we have on the team. BUT id have to trade beason, and try to find some big proven corner. 1 Is better than nothing. On offense, I have to draft O line with the first pick. If the talent isnt there, possible trade back and pick up a Wide reciever, and get a trade or FA Oline. with the talent already on the team, i dont think you need to do much more than that. maybe tighten up the D line a little, but they did a good job as is.

third, Id leave Chud in place. He got the offense working the last half of the season once they moved to a pro style offense. Without being on the inside its hard to say wether he should stay or go based on his attitude towards having his schemes taken from him, but from the outside looking in, Id say he stays.

the only other thing i can think of, is possibly trying to re structure a couple contracts to free up some cap space. but thats an entire topic unto its self...

Lastly, as GM. I WOULD change the mentality in the locker room. Id have to pull a military style beat them to nothing and bring them back up as winners approach, but by the end of it, the entire team would be more cohesive, and tougher.. not to mention stronger.

thats about it for me. what you got.

-Get under the cap.

-Trade down from 14 in order to gain a 2nd rd.

-Take Jesse Williams in the 1st.

-Take DeAndre Hopkins WR and Jordan Poyer CB in the 2nd.

-Take an OT in the 4th (Wagner or Nixon)

-Draft Brad Wing P and Dustin Hopkins K

-Sign Andy Levitre OG and Patick Chung S

I'd be looking at the upcoming draft thinking about who would be available around the 14th on the O&D lines that would help us improve up the interiors. I'd also be looking at LT in search for a possible sucessor to Gross so we can slide Bell into RG and move Gross over to that RT for the remainder of his time as a Panther. This is assuming we can restructure his contract and keep him here.

knowing it's a make or break year for Ron and basically its a one year interview, you start getting under the CAP muy pronto and then start stock piling draft picks.

by stockpiling picks, you buy time and cap flexibility. if Ron doesn't make the playoffs, thats ok because you are under the CAP and have lots of picks for the new guy.

If Ron DOES make the playoffs, well, that's cool as well.

yeah i think the cap space is our biggest challenge. more so than finding the talent.

find a starting RG, find more competition at T.

Dump a RB

Restructure or dump a LB (Beason and Anderson cost too much money when you look at what Luke/TD cost).

Revamp our QB and WR corps outside of Cam, Smith and LaFell.

Focus on secondary on D.

..... Big names not involved.

    • Destiny really fuged me in terms of me playing other games. I have a week off this summer and maybe I will be able to dive back in, but I'd really like to finish Breath of the Wild too.  Witcher is so much fun, but iirc I'm kind of at a point where all my quests are a much higher level than me (like 30s and I'm a 15 or something). I probably need to back track and pick up a bunch of side quests that are manageable to boost my level some.    I like the Witcher's lore better than Skyrim, but I still think Skyrim is a more appealing game to me just because you can casually pick it up and start dominating. Witcher is more rewarding but takes more time. 
    • No way would I consider CAP a lock to make the roster. In fact, I think he may be on the outside looking in at the moment. But, the stats bear out that he was roughly equal to Stew in effectiveness last year. Stew averaged 3.78ypc and a TD once every 24 carries. CAP averaged 4ypc and a TD once every 18 carries. Hell, it may be generous saying that Stew was equal to CAP in effectiveness last year. I think a lot of Panthers fans suffer from nostalgia when looking at Stew. I still think he's a decent RB, but to hear some Panthers fans talk you'd think that the guy was a future HOFer. I feel like most of us (myself and the front office and coaching staff included) have perpetually overvalued Jonathan Stewart.
