Mick Mixon filling in on the David Glenn Show

23 posts in this topic

The show is on right now (until 3PM). He said he's gonna have Rivera on a little later (2:15) I just caught the back end of a Gantt interview (who basically said we can be good, but not necessarily great). Mixon is getting ready to talk about AE.

Mixon just happened to see Rivera in the office one day, and basically asked the coach if AE had a real shot (or if the good reports were basically B.S.).

 

Paraphrasing:

 

Armanti Edwards has worked extremely hard. His route running has turned the corner. He's catching the ball pretty well. Ricky Proehl is working really hard with Armanti.  The positive Edwards talk is not a joke. It's serious.

Mixon said Cam really looked like he was in the process of maturing at his press conference the other day. He basically said Cam looked like a confident, mature man, as opposed to a young man trying to figure it all out ("...neurons firing, synapses connecting...").

Mixon asked the catch-the-ball-during-QB-reps guy who had the stronger arm, Cam or Anderson. The guy said Clausen (No joke). He said Clausen's balls travel "crisply" through the air.

 

Mixon said Cam could probably throw the ball 80 yards if he wanted to,

Mixon noted that he believes Ginn's football age is younger than his real age. Impressed with Ginn's speed as well. Someone asked if Ginn could be a number two. Mixon really hedged on whether Ginn could become a number two, lauding Ginn's kickoff return abilities, but said he doesn't necessarily believe Ginn is a "natural catcher". He said Ginn's hands are probably "good enough", but we'll have to see whether they're great later on. Baiscally, he was probably thinking, "Not!"

Sounds like Mixon was given marching orders.

I love my employer. I would take a bullet for my employer. Somewhere...In an extremity

 

Mick loves the Panthers as much as we do.

A star-Jenks comparison is valid according to Mixon (in response to a question).

Rivera coming in @ 2:15, now as opposed to 2:30, for those who actually plan to listen

    • I'd love it if someone could do a compare & contrast post on Corey Davis, Zay Jones, Ross and maybe one or two of the other top WR prospects, ranking them on Speed Route running / separation Hands (catch percentage) Durability Fit in our offense For me, Ross is off my board (at least in the 1st round) due to his knees / injury risk.  Davis seems promising but it's hard for me to imagine DG going with him at #8.  Seems like one of other players we are likely to have ranked higher (Thomas, Adams, Fournette, Howard) might be available at #8.  Barnett & Lattimore might be above Davis on our Board and have a pretty high chance of being there at #8... I don't watch much college football at all. (Have enough trouble watching NFL games here in West Africa)  Don't know enough about Zay Jones and any of the other potential round 2 WR prospects....
    • I think Panthers fans would lose their minds if we took Lattimore. But he would be a stud for sure and pairing him with JB24 would be nice.
