I love D-Will. He'll always be a Panther to me but he's got to take a paycut in order to stay one.

Couldn't possibly disagree with a single thing you said. But, that still doesn't change the circumstances. His contract is holding this team back. Love D-Will for everything that he's put into this organization and community. As fans, he's the kind of guy that we have no choice but to cheer for regardless of how much money he's making. He's a Panther and he loves this team.

You can't defend stupid.  Marty was stupid.  I don't blame DLo, but unless he is stupid too, he has to see this coming.

So much animosity toward D-Will because of his contract. He is a good dude and a good RB.

My feeling on it is, if we can sign an impact player I don't mind cutting him. But we are under the cap right now and there is not any impact FA out there so why make this team worse if we don't have to.

DWill's contract may be on the high side, he certainly has the potential to be worth every penny as he has shown in the past. The zone read offense was a hard adjustment for the backs because they didnt have any downhill speed first of all, and second of all they werent the ones reading the DE to their backside so they never knew if Cam was going to pull it or not. Its hard to get up and run hard when you kinda freeze for the first 2-3 seconds of the play while everyone else's motor is already at 100%.

 

Give it one more year with the shula offense that we saw more of later in the season that made more use of cam under center and less of the zone read. Gettleman has a plan, he seems to always think a few steps ahead.

I love the enthusiasm and loyalty, but I disagree.  He may have a year left in the tank, but historically, the past is not an accurate indicator of future performance when the RB is 30 or more.

 

The issue with DW is not whether he is good for the team locker room, worth the money (he is not-check the stats) or is liked in Memphis; the issue is this--how much would the RB position decline if we used his salary on players at other positions of need (and how would those positions be upgraded)?

 

With the addition of Barner, something has to be done. This is more of a roster spot issue than salary cap.

    • http://www.alternet.org/grayzone-project/fbi-isis-garland-texas-shooting-undercover-agent The first attack on U.S. soil for which ISIS claimed responsibility—a 2015 shooting in Garland, Texas—was instigated by the FBI, according to an investigation by CBS' "60 Minutes" and government documents obtained by an attorney involved in the case. In a macabre twist, an undercover FBI agent who encouraged one of the shooters to "tear up Texas" was also physically present at the scene of the crime, mere feet away from the shooters. Prior to that, a separate informant was paid $132,000 by the FBI to pretend for three years to be friends with the future shooter. When the man found out his supposed friend had taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations on behalf of the intelligence agency, he withdrew from his religious community and eventually fell into online religious extremism. ...... On May 3, 2015, two Islamist extremist gunmen opened fire at an exhibit for cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in Garland, Texas. The contest featured key figures in the Islamophobia industry, including anti-Muslim demagogue Pamela Geller and extreme-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders. The intentionally provocative exhibit was swarming with security, including dozens of police officers, snipers and a SWAT team. The heavily armed attackers injured a security guard outside the building before they were themselves promptly shot by snipers and killed. ISIS soon after took credit for the shooting. There is no evidence that ISIS organized the attack, but the shooters had been independently radicalized and were inspired by the genocidal extremist group. In the two years since, the Garland shooting has been used to justify a vast array of anti-Muslim policies and measures. A new investigation by the investigation team at "60 Minutes," nevertheless, shows that the FBI was deeply implicated in the attack. ..... After the trial, Maynard was given 60 pages of declassified messages between an undercover FBI agent and one of the shooters, Elton Simpson. These documents showed that, less than three weeks before the attack, the FBI agent had told Simpson to "Tear up Texas." This "to me was an encouragement to Simpson," the attorney told "60 Minutes." The government denied that the text constituted incitement, but the FBI's involvement did not end there. "60 Minutes" reported that the U.S. government admitted in an affidavit that the undercover FBI agent also physically "traveled to Garland, Texas, and was present ... at the event." "I was shocked," Maynard told the news program. "I was shocked that the government hadn't turned this over. I wanted to know when did he get there, why was he there?" Documents the government gave to the attorney showed that the FBI agent had in fact been in a car behind the two shooters at the time of the attack. The undercover FBI agent even used his cell phone, several feet away, to film the building's security guard seconds before he was shot by the Islamist extremists. "It's stunning," Maynard told "60 Minutes." "The idea that he's right there 30 seconds before the attack happens is just incredible to me." ..... The undercover FBI agent fled the scene of the crime before being stopped at gunpoint and detained by Garland police. ..... Dabla Deng, the informant, pretended to be Simpson's friend for three years, "60 Minutes" reported. Deng taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations. When Simpson "found out that this guy was spying on him, and taping him and then finding out that the government was doing that, I think something clicked in him," recalled Usama Shami, president of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix. "And the mosque, we couldn't do anything." "He felt that the mosque had abandoned him?" Anderson Cooper asked. "Yes. And he felt that a lot of people had abandoned him. And that's why he stopped coming to the mosque," Shami said. After this, Simpson moved in with his friend Nadir Soofi, who "60 Minutes" noted "had just had a bitter break-up and the pizza parlor he owned was going out of business." The two alienated men drifted into extremist religious communities online, and were attracted by ISIS recruiters.
    • i actually took this test a year ago because i was talking to this girl who was a psych major and really invested in this test. then i was talking to this other girl who was also a psych major and she thought there wasn't much to it, she basically didn't have respect for it. if i took it today it'd probably line up the same. 
    •    There isn't a problem taking a tackle usually. The problem would be taking any of THESE OTs that high. If there was someone close to that, we would have risked so much on Kalil.
