Profootballfocus' Team Needs For the Carolina Panthers.

Recommended Posts

PFF is usually pretty good, but....when did Frank Alexander become a DT, lol

They said of players that played over 100 snaps at Dt. Never said he was a full time Dt

the team should look at a receiver like Ramses Barden. The Giant was a third-round pick in 2009, but just hasn’t been able to get onto the field much in a deep New York receiving corp, playing 419 snaps in four seasons. Over the course of those seasons, he’s caught a total of 29 balls, with just under half of them coming this season, where he saw 19 targets over five games. Coincidentally, the best game of his career came in the team’s Week 3 matchup with the Panthers, in which he caught 9 of 10 targets for 138 yards.

Admittedly, to see Barden being successful in Carolina takes some projecting, but, at 6-foot-6, he offers great size and he could be that big target on the outside to complement Smith. Perhaps most importantly, he’d be cheap.

The Giants have been god at finding receivers. Gettleman will know if Barden is as good as this sounds....cheap is also good for us.

How come almost every name they give us is coming off some sort of injury? I realize we need to go cheap, but do our cheap guys all need to be recovering from an injury?

There are going to be a whole lot of cheap guys out there this year. Maybe we should look at the healthy guys first, then settle for what we can get later.

Shcwartz, if healthy, would be a huge upgrade. Any DT worth his salt is an upgrade, as are DBs. But there are prescious few WR that could make us better. But get a good TE to pair with Olsen, and that very well make us a lot better.

Good and exciting times are acomin'. My giddy wouldn't lie to me.

Ok I realize we don't have a lot of money to go pursue free agents, but how much does PFF think signing Sammie Lee Hill will cost?

Barden is a great idea. I think he might be more talented than lafell. Dorsey would also get me fired up. That way the team could focus on the ol and secondary in the draft....lets hope gettleman magic is in effect.

This team gains nothing by adding Barden.

I would have said that before Barden torched us. Haven't seen too many of our WRs not named Smith have a game like that. None actually in a few years.

we are the only team he's ever looked any good against.

only reason i would want him on this team is to keep him from being on another team and torching our D. i wouldn't expect him to look anything like that against any other team.

PFF isn't game planning for Rivera/FO, but to include gaining solid talent at a cheap price in an article requires another factor, like injuries from a previous year, or else we aren't talking cheap.

Ok, maybe cheap is the wrong word. How about inexpensive? We are talking one year contracts here. Reasonable pay, for a reasonbly good player. There very well could be a ton of guys, that fit that bill, looking for a job. Why not here?

Use the draft wisely, and fill in some holes with inexpensive FAs. That just may get us where we want to go.

By all accounts Gettlemen has been locked in the film room evaluating our team. If he sees a need that can be filled at a reasonble price. Why not go for it? I trust him to do whatever he can to help Rivera build a solid team. And I don't believe it takes a lot of money to do so. Especially this year.
