The rules in plain english: No insults and no trolling. Posts about Cam are allowed, but for the sake of this thread we're not gonna side-track the thread with more Cam bickering. Be creative with your response please.

I'll start. Gamble is expendible and highly overrated. The reason his success rate was so high however long it was ago is because no one threw the ball at his side. Why would anyone throw his way when you have 7th round midgets on the other side?

And GO

I like Ron Rivera and feel he will do well. I also like Jerry Richardson and do not consider him cheap.

I'd say Gross is expensive and highly overrated.

I like this game.

For a team that believes in building through the draft, we are horrible at manipulating the draft! We are the first team to give picks away to move in the draft and 90% of the time the player we drafted would have been available much later (even the fans know this).

We can pick talent, but are oblivious to other teams draft boards and constantly take players rounds before they would be drafted otherwise.

I think Jon Beason and Jonthan Stewart best years are behind them and we should unload them to save salary and gain draft picks.

Williams is worth the money and is the best running back we have ever drafted.

I think Chud is a good coordinator who had a bad couple games to start the year.

I think that we have good linebackers, but linebacking as a whole is overrated at this stage of the NFL game.

Luke Kuechly isn't a lock for DROY. Casey Hayward has a very good chance of winning the award (and you guys should show some respect towards him).

We are in cap hell and I would be shocked if this team can sustain a competitive edge over the next 3-4 years due to the severity of the cap hell it's in. I expect us to put it together for a year, but I also fully expect continued mediocrity until the team is able to financially rebound.

No disrespect, 15 more tackles than anyone in the NFL speaks for itself.

Mine: Bringing in Norv Turner would be a huge fail. No need to become San Diego 2.0, an underachieving Super Bowl contender that will never put it together. I don't want to become that. Although I don't think losing Chud would be the worst thing.

This team is not a SB contending team as yet. I believe this team has a chance at being a very consistant team. As consistant as the Patriots. The question is do they believe it and are they willing to work hard for the ability to be serious SB contenders every season?

Until they take away the Redskins team for a year or two for mismanaging the cap so badly, I will not worry about the NFL cap. NBA, NHL, sure. Not this league.

When people did throw to his side, he was still the #2 ranked CB in the league. Your hypothesis is flawed.

I don't know why more people aren't understanding this, either because they refuse to or just ignorant to it, but the day of the "franchise running back" is dead, and today more teams are making the playoffs (and more consistently, I might add) by virtue of a star QB than by virtue of their franchise running back. A committee of players with different skill sets that don't cost so much is really all you need to have a solid running game, which is really all you need to win a championship when looking at the bigger picture.

Charles Godfrey is not nearly as bad as this message board makes him out to be. I'm not saying he is an all-pro, but he has consistently improved.

Deangelo Williams isn't nearly as big of a waste of money as people think.

Not sure if unpopular- We missed Shockey this year.

We need to draft a receiver soon. Smith had a lot of uncharacteristic drops this year.

Jon Beason is not done, he will come back strong next year

Ryan Kalil isn't near as good as people think. He's great at calling protections and decent in run blocking, but he's physically limited in pass blocking.

We should have kept Fox instead of Hurney

Rivera could easily become the most successful coach this franchise has ever had.

Although bull headed and goes in full retard on 3rd and short ...is our best most creative Offensive coordinator we ever had!! He just needs a guy to slap him from time to time.

The blind devotion to have clean cut players is why the Panthers are so passive at the start of seasons.

Charles Johnson is underpaid for what he does each week. (or well worth every penny)

The contract extentions to Beason, CJ, Kalil, James Anderson, Deangelo were the right moves at the time they needed to be made bc losing any of them would have been more devastating short term...my hindsight opinion is different on DeAngelo and Anderson.

I think Steve Smith, although produces at an elite number 1 level should have been a number 2 WR(or 1B) for the last 5 years..overdue.

Dewayne Jarrett was the right pick at the time...he just was an underacheiving, drank dependant let down.

David Gettis is now the most overrated man in Carolina...now that so many have realized Chud is an inconsistent OC that had Cam land in his lap

Gross didn't play as bad as some people think.

The dislike for Ron Rivera, I think he just inherited one of the worse team in the league and made them competitive.

Wanting to draft a DT or safety with the 1st or 2nd picks, Rather go WR or OG with the 1st two picks BPA...

Wanting Bill Cowher or Gruden as a HC.

Chudzinski was not a bad coordinator. (*amended to say was. Good luck in Cleveland coach)

Ron Rivera has the right idea and is a good coach, but is struggling to learn how to be a head coach.

Steve Smith's passion can at times be a really bad thing for team chemistry.

Jon Beason is expendable and probably should get cut or traded.

D-Will is our best RB and should stay instead of Stewart

Greg Olsen is a borderline terrible blocker for a tight end.

The read option is a good thing and was not the issue with the offense or the run game struggling.

I agree with every statement. Godfrey makes plays but he has a FEW weekly mental errors that never seem to improve but then makes a few extraordinary plays...so he gives and takes for the team..

Jerry Richardson is not cheap.

To date Jake delhomme is still the best quarterback this franchise has ever had.

Steve smith is a bonified hall of famer.

Beason is expendable.

Dwill is better than Stewart.

DT is not the biggest need on the team.

Our cap situation is not as bad as it seems.


Whew, that felt good.

Well, the Chud thing is a moot point.
