Decision time.

16 posts in this topic

Its obvious this team is not playoff material losing to the Jazz.... twice!!! So now we must make a huge decision, lose out of just do enough to keep it at bay. Kemba going through a bad stretch. No Taylor or MKG. Big Al looks a bit slow of there now. Sluggish I would say. So it goes like this, either go down fighting and finish bottom 14. Or give up and lose 21 straight and plummet to bottom 3.

MJ and CHO are just messing with us. Theyll eventually TANK the season. Its a long season.

Three potential 1st rounders. Theyre smart men. They dont have a "wow" kinda brain.

Kemba will "magically sprain an Ankle" and the team will have to rely on Sessions and Pargo playing the point for a few weeks.

I don't think this is the case... I think "the decision" that has to be made, is what trade to make. We need to try to win now that we've signed Big Al. So, we need to make a move and bring in another quality player, otherwise, I fear a HUGE losing streak of the likes of last season is on the way. What I think we're seeing now is the culmination of all those injuries to the three. It's finally catching up with us.

Something needs to be done. The worst possible thing is to be mediocre, with the same roster, the rest of the season. Either make an impact trade, or tank. Keeping the same roster, while the "weaker" teams are tanking this season and landing studs, will place Charlotte right back among the worst teams in the league next year. Even though they're barely treading water above them now.

Im down for either tanking or trying to win now but it has to be a clear direction one way or the other being mediocore in the middle 8-11 in the  east is not gonna cut it. Either make a positive trade and add someone to the roster or lets trade some of the veterans and let the young guys have a go at it with big AL. For all of you that keep saying trade MKG its not gonna happen and its foolish to bring him up in trade talks. If we do make a move it will likely be trading more draft picks and a player like gordon to add a player or go in the way of tanking and move possibly sessions / mcroberts combo to a contender for a late first which is not that great but hey its about all we could fetch for that combo while taking on some garbage filler.

I seriously doubt this team makes the playoffs without a trade.  Once Taylor went down the bench has been terrible, and this team is just not deep or experienced enough (plus our schedule to start the season was rather easy).  I expect Chicago to make the playoffs, and at least one of the New York teams will probably sneak in.

 

I doubt this team does any outright tanking, but I can see management telling the coaching staff to give Zeller and Biyombo big minutes

No, you try to win. Just play Sessions more minutes and run a lineup with McBob at the 3 quite a bit and I think the team will start to loose by default. Also give Zeller a ton of playing time at the 4.

I hope we can get a high draft pick. If we tank and get a top 3 pick plus get detroits pick which at best will be #9 because its top 8 protected, then we could get 2 fuging studs and be on the rise like OKC of a few years back!!!

    • A pro? Cool. Just quit crying in the panthers main forum about the quality of threads and talking about how you're going to leave. That's not what a troll does. If you're going to troll troll right
    • Naziism wasn't really socialism and in fact one of their first orders of business was to eradicate Communists from Germany. Also, trying to meld Nazis with socialists is disingenuous because the issue with Nazi Germany wasn't their economy which actually recovered quite well under Nazi rule, but the first part of their name.  "Nationalist".  That is what drove them to war crimes and mass murder of Jews and immigrants. And the party that currently most mirrors a form of nationalism close to Naziism is the Republican Party.  With heavy anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, criminalization of minorities, etc etc rhetoric.  
    • Looked at both your posts, they didn't improve so I will pick this one. Cherrypicking a stat or six game period that was decent hardly justifies that we were middle of the pack. First of all this discussion was about cornerbacks not defensive ends so your run defense and sack stats means little. Newsflash. We were top 10 in rush defense because teams didn't have to run on us when they could pick up chunks in passing the ball. We were 26th in number of rushing attempts by the opponent meaning 25 teams had the opponent rush more times than we did.  And we were second in sacks for the same reason. Teams passed all the time on us giving us many more times to sack them.  We had the 6th most passes thrown against us. We were second in sacks behind Arizona- 47   to their 48. But they had 547 attempts against them versus our 612. So we had a sack for every 13 attempts. Arizona had a sack every 11 attempts. Even Buffalo which ranked 9th in sacks with 39 had the same one sack for every 13 passes attempted as we did. Teams completed passes almost 70% of the time which also ranks us 29th. We were tied for 22nd with 4 other teams in giving up 7.5 yards per pass play.  We were 21st in yards surrendered in total defense. And in points surrendered we were 26th not 15th. That was offense not defense that was 15th. With all the offense and Shula bashing I can understand why you might think the defense was better than the offense but it was the other way around. TL,DR Wrong we are one of the worse defenses in the league no matter how you look at it.
