TANTRIC-NINJA

WFNZ interviews Chris Canty Who Wants to Be a Panther

63 posts in this topic

After looking over his stats at PFF he seems equally as solid against the run if not better as he does in pass rushing with last year being his best overall as a heavy rotational guy.

Its impossible to gauge how much of a factor Gettleman was in bringing Canty to NY in the first place but they did sign him to a pretty hefty deal when Gettleman was the head pro personel guy there. http://sports.espn.g...tory?id=3944397

If we could roll with him and Dwan as our starters next year I'd be pretty happy with this, as it delays having to draft a DT early this year and allows us to focus on other needs for now. The pass rush from our front 4 could be deadly if everyone plays as well as they did last year.

Gettleman, as the pro personnel guy, probably made the recommendation to sign him in NY based on his, or one of his staff member's, evaluation and GM Jerry Reese executed the deal.

Another ironic tidbit in the Canty '09 signing link is that he was scheduled to visit Seattle but it was cancelled b/c they signed Colin Cole. Kinda weird that they might end up playing alongside each other in Carolina.

I think we'll have a little money to spend. Might not be a lot but we'll definitely have something to spend to bring in some quality FA. I don't think Canty will demand a huge salary, IMO.

The way this year is shaping up, you may not need a lot of money to grab a decent player. This is a buyers market type year. If they want to come here, and are willing to take what we can give them. We should be able to upgrade a few positions without breaking the bank.

There is a poo ton of guys looking for work. The price is going down. Depends on what team pays first and who they pay on what market value will be. But I am seeing good value this year. Good for us and Gettlemen. He can pretty much jump right in and upgrade at his hearts content.

How can such an average team be over the cap. So, we're paying guys to lose us games. For crying out loud!

When was the last time we signed a vet that was telegraphed through the media to us?

Keyshawn.

Hurney(no explanation needed)...Chud(Read Option as base offense/4 WR sets with terrible oline)...Josh Norman as our starting CB...Nakamura as our starting Safety...Rivera taking WAY too long to reign in Chud and bench Norman and Nakamura. By then it was too late. The Perfect Storm of Suck. Our end of season turnaround could have happened alot sooner but Chud was too arrogant and Rivera was too meek or stubborn to make the changes sooner. Hurney set the stage for the mess by pumping all of our cap space into RB's and LB's to the detriment of every other position. I'm sure you were asking rhetorically, but fug it it's Friday, I'm not at work, and I ain't got sh#t to do...

If anything, all players should have wanted to come here with Hurney
