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).

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?

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.

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.

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

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
