Ok, we all know the off season is a brutal time for us hardcore fans. But every once in awhile a blurb comes out, some guy posts "Super Bowl" and 7 months later that guy is starring for us.

 

February 7th 2013: Carolina Panthers sign Colin Cole

 

http://www.carolinah...-dt-colin-cole/

 

Ivan the Awesome:

 

Meh.

 

JawnyBlaze:

 

At least it shows us they're looking at the problem. Hopefully they don't think their work is done with that issue though.

 

OnlyPantherFanInMaine:

 

THE Colin Cole?

 

Zod:

 

Gotta fill the Wofford dorm rooms

 

I'm not blaming anyone for their comments but they are amusing. This guy was a quality signing. Started 13 games, 9 tackles, 1 sack, kept our rotation fresh, stuffed the run, and most importantly he was not FUA. When Dwan Missed several games he stepped in and let our linebackers flow.

 

 

March 20th, 2013: Carolina Panthers Sign Mike Mitchell

 

http://www.carolinah...-mike-mitchell/

 

Lilsmitty09:

 

awesome. Now just Ginn and Ill be content with this years FA considering our salary

 

SauceBoss:

 

well i mean it's a signing, but is it an improvement? doubtful.

 

 

carpanfan96:

 

He can hit really hard............


I think that's about it.....

 

Dash Global"

 

I think this guy would be a beast of a SS with the right coaching and scheme.

 

Here is a guy that won the confidence of the coaching staff through competition. He recorded 67 tackles, 4 sacks, 4 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles, 9 pass breakups. The huddle was mostly positive on him but most of us had no idea. I googled him to get the stats and came across this recent article in a Santa Clara newspaper: http://www.pressdemo...40119932#page=1

 

Needless to say raiders fans are shaking their heads as they read that.

 

So let's see what 2014 brings us. Hopefully a Right Tackle and some guys looking to prove themselves.

Oh, and:

Exactly. A little early to say "good signing".

 

I think the time has come SCP!

Not to sidetrack KP, but I know I'm not the only one who couldn't access this site for like 4 hours. My original thread(now locked) turned out that way cause I wanted to see if writing anything would make a thread and it did, but my original thread kept getting an error

i was gonna post a thread about this but this seems ok here are some after draft day comments:

 

It's funny of you to assume Cam is going to want to continue to stay and play for a team that has done nothing to build around him. Cam is about building a brand and you can't do that if your losing.

Lol are they still "trusting" gettleman. I swear if I closed my eyes I'd swear Rivera was making the picks

Their building this team to play defense and punt. I guess they think its still the 90s

--AceBoogie

Oh really?  So justify drafting a 4th string linebacker, a 5th string running back, a 3rd string DT, and ANOTHER developmental OG that was supposed to be a UDFA.  Please, I'm waiting.

Too bad we lost out on Harbaugh, their 4th round may be better then our entire draft.
He's poo'ed the bed since then, this is almost as bad as drafting Clausen/Pike/Edwards in the same draft, almost.

-SmashNDash

Yea gettle made two picks any fan would have sense to make. Not impressed. So much for his late round eye for talent

--IamSoClutch


Beginning to see why he has never been a GM

-Panther4Ever

there are too many homers here. Gettleman did very bad outside Star. not a very encouraging offseason to say the least. Meanwhile the well run franchises continue to dominate the draft.

--VIP

Brag about your BPA philosophy.


Get to later rounds.


Panic that you haven't addressed your needs.


Reach for a player with great value on the board.


Pick itself isn't atrocious but it could be kind of a scary indicator of whats to come. Marty used to pull that absolute same crap. Boast about your secretive highly educated draft wise plan of going by your board. Then getting to the later rounds, panicking, and hoping late round draft picks can come in and start for you.


We'll see if it's an aberration or a trend.

--Growl

Gettleman is a fuging idiot... stop defending him.

--micnificent28


Time to start the petition to fire gettleman, and to think he showed such promise just a day ago.

Lol yeah, I remember how many people were bringing out the pitchforks after the draft... I never understood that.  I thought we had a damn good draft at the time considering the picks we had.

Yeah I'm not really trying to call people out. Anyone that posts on here regularly is wrong from time to time. I just think it's funny to look back and think who will surprise us in 2014?

maybe these people will learn not to have a complete mental breakdowns on draft day. we obviously have no clear cut idea of what the season will hold. a lot of us trusted gettleman because of that resume and his plans to build the lines up first.

 

some thought shoring up defensively would benefit the team OVERALL in the short term while also benefiting the long term when we double dipped on DTs in the draft. others had a complete meltdown we didnt draft a receiver after KK (although it is definitely time now, i said repeatedly in the offseason that we were 2-3 years away from playoff contention year in and year out because of lack of talent on this team, specifically on the lines).

 

offseason has its perks like draft day and the couple weeks leading up to it is one of my favorite times on the huddle. we are done with Hurney. it's going to be an awesome offseason with a bunch of unknowns (hardy, wr's, contract extensions of mitchell and ginn)

I guarantee you, we'll have similar meltdowns this off-season again. Posters like AceBoogie and Micnificent28 are prone to them.

this will be my 8th offseason here and it's hilarious but not altogether unexpected to watch how opinions shift around

 

-the "fox is a good coach" renaissance is really a sight to behold after what the common consensus on this board was in 2009/2010

 

-there were people on this site who really, really hated thomas davis and thought he was a bust even before the injuries

 

-now that we've signed david carr we finally have a "real QB" on the roster and bobby boucher's days are numbered

That's why top dawg doesn't immediately jump off the porch attacking. I think an even temperament is the best option until you analyze the situation at hand, and give it time to play itself out.

Gettleman did a great job finding some serviceable veteran free agents for us on the cheap.  I expect him to do the same again this year, but he's gotta get serious about finding some true solutions at OL and WR for us to make a Super Bowl run.  Byron Bell cannot be starting at RT next year and we have to field a better #2 WR than Brandon LaFell.

To be real this probably correlates to their personality IRL as well. Overreactive cry babies who are never happy with anything.
