Roster changes?

So what changes might we see before week two?

 

Got a feeling Garry Williams goes to IR, which likely means another lineman signed. If you're expecting that to be a well-known veteran guy though, I wouldn't necessarily get my hopes up.  It's a legitimate possibility.  After week one - which technically isn't over until end of game tonight - is the time many teams pick up unsigned veterans because they no longer have to guarantee their contracts, but by no means is such a signing guaranteed.

 

As far as other changes, I know some are expecting Armond Smith to be shown the door.  Again, maybe, but I have a feeling he gets one more chance.

 

Ditto Josh Thomas.  Thomas had three fairly bad moments in yesterday's game, but will he be benched?  My gut says not yet, but it's possible.

 

Feel free to predict what roster changes you think could - or should - be made this week.

need more OL. need another corner.

 

more WRs wouldn't help because, well, i'm not convinced that anything past lafell and maybe ginn would ever be thrown to. seems like a regression to feed the stud days where teams could pile defenders on one or two players and shut us down because the QB was waiting too long for his shot with those two instead of taking advantage of the open man and when the open man is actually thrown to they make a mistake because they get to a point where they aren't ever actually expecting the ball to come to them.

Aside from Garry Williams, I am not expecting any moves.

 

Moves would mean they are agreeing that they stunk it up yesterday.

 

They don't agree, therefore there will be no moves.

If Thomas can't cover deep teams will attack him regularly

Changes?  Ron Rivera doesn't change!  He still punts on 4th and inches and given the opportunity he will still call a timeout to allow the opposing team enough time to kick a field goal at their leisure.

Does Rivera count as being on the roster?

Oline, even though they played well, corners, receivers. Same thing as we've been screaming for for 2 years now.

Unfortunately no receivers out there unless we're going to make a trade. I say WR won't get fixed this year. That means receiver in the first round and sign and trade with New York for Hakeem nicks.

This is fantasy. I don't expect them to do anything. Maybe take a WR in the 6 th round out of bumfucku and expect him to contribute.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the same result.

thomas got burnt on the same play twice in a row... even if you expect safety help over the top, your man shouldnt be 5 yards behind you

Agree - Spreading the ball around isn't something the Panthers have tried in a long, long time.

Such a simple and effective principle, but we don't take advantage of it.  Cam would probably say

they are not open, but really he just wants to throw to his favorites that he has this mental favoritism

for.
