Did G-man jump the gun a little too soon in FA? I realize hindsight is always 20:20.

re: lloyd...

6 teams.....in 9 years. he has the talent to be productive so that's not really it. for him to have that much talent and be that unable to stay with any team for any length of time he's got to have some pretty hard to deal with baggage.

 

i want more talent at WR brought in...but i don't want the baggage that comes with a hard to deal with personality like lloyd apparently has. i don't think the lockerroom needs it.

 

 

Not only this, but I can't see Smitty taking too much of that attitude from anyone, especially not another WR.  I'm not saying "huuurrr duuurrr He's gonna punch him in the face duuurrrr hurrrr".  I'm just saying that Smitty being so intense and expecting everyone to work as hard as he does, would be like oil and water with those two.

I really think everyone is just hungry for some news man. Let the battles of the db's, wr's and dt's happen to see exactly what we have and go from there. If they can take someone now or at anytime on a fair contract then they will, they'll just bump the bottom of that position and keep the fight going. 

 

We are in bargain hunt mode, and this whole "we have x money to spend, so spend it" ignores what the FO is aware of.. we have ~$9M in dead money next year, the contracts we have scheduled for 2014 are near the possible 125M cap max already, and we'll be down 14FA's + any of these 1 year contracts not being there. Soooo much change is coming our way that it's not even funny

I think gettleman has done an outstanding job with the situation he accepted. He had to sign guys that was willing to play for what we could afford and I like that he knew who he wanted to target and actually did it. Gettle is giving us something that we as Carolina Panther fans aren't used to: a front office building a team!

yeah, it's apparently one of those things that just don't get much attention because he's not that high a profile player.

 

teams don't really talk much about it either, at least to the media/public, but it's not like he's some bad guy or anything or a lockerroom cancer type thing. he's more like a boil on the butt of the team he's on...just an annoying wierd guy that people (esp. other players) don't like to be around. at least that's just the perception i get.

 

i think if it were up to josh mcD, he'd be staying in new england but i think the players were the ones who didn't want him around.

Kerry Rhodes is being blackballed from the league because he's gay.

No that isn't a joke.

If we don't bring in Kerry Rhodes just because he is gay and the "media circus" i'm going to be fuging pissed. Now if it just because we would rather spend the money elsewhere or he doesn't fit what we are trying to do is a different story.

 

If it is simply because he is gay and we don't want the attention, we need to seriously rethink our priorities. We add players to help this team win. Kerry Rhodes would help this team win.

 

loot at this dude

If there isn't a media circus about Rhodes now then why would ther be if he signed here of all places?

That Rhodes highlight video was good. My only issue with the FS spot is the Panthers are committing Godfrey to it. If Rhodes came in on a cheap contract and is a rotational player, that's fine.  I don't know though -- i'm more concerned about the SS position at this point with not having someone already assumed to be the starter there.

Nah that rumor has been around forever and it's no secret guys that are too gay get locked out.

Like you can be ken Lucas or jarrod cooler gay, but you can't be Kevin mawae or Ovie mugheli gay.
