Both kicker and punter need to be upgraded.

Bironas or Dawson would be awesome.

We supposedly have two comp picks in the 6th, I wouldn't mind it if they were spent on a K and a P.

Just from a stat standpoint Gano was closer to the bottom of the league. But his misses were 54 and 48.

I'm guessing we go with him.


HOWEVER he was literally the worst kicker in the league in 2010 and it wasn't even close

Not much better in 2011 and he was bad from 30-39 at 5 for 9. Heck even missed a PT.

Where did you see we got two comps? Especially in the 6th?

I assume if we get a comp pick at all, it'll be for Dan Connor, and it won't be more than a 7th.

I'm at work now on my phone, when I get home I'll look it up but predicted comp picks came out a few weeks ago. There was discussion of it here. Nothing's official yet, that's why I said supposedly.

I don't think we have any but could be wrong

Gano was fine. I don't understand the reasoning behind the hate for him. There really is no reason for it. Any of the FA kickers are about on the same level if not less than Gano.


Thank you! I thought I was on a ship by myself the other day...lol

I know he had a few small blunders but the guy got picked up off the street. He is relatively young (younger than Medlock ) and he has a strong leg. This offseason should help cure the ( extra point snafu) or long field goal shank ...

Carolina
The Panthers lost Dan Connor and will receive a 6th round pick
The Panthers lost Travelle Wharton and will receive a 6th round pick
The Panthers lost Mackenzy Bernadeau who is canceled out by Mike Tolbert
The Panthers lost Geoff Schwartz who is canceled out by Haruki Nakamura


Remember, comp picks aren't awarded based on fan's opinions of players. They're awarded based on contract with the new team, playing time and I think accolades earned.

Yeah, I see that, and I know that's how it works. But, I'm almost positive that it's when a player leaves to sign with another team in free agency. Wharton was released. I'm fairly certain that cancels out the comp pick.

Yea, good point. I had forgotten that Wharton was released. Regardless, we'll be finding out soonish about comp picks and I wouldn't be upset if our last two picks were spent on a P and a K :)
