I don't get how all these teams have money to make FA splashes every year. Yet, the Panthers never sign anyone of notable significance but are always cap strapped. Mind blowing.

You idiots were saying the same thing last offseason


You, of all people, shouldn't be allowed to throw around the word "idiot".

Tomorrow is a new day - but as of 10:01 PM and I get ready to call it a night.....this has not been a very good day for the Panthers organization or their fans. Dollar Tree Dave most def took one on the chin today.

We haven't even had the draft yet, lol.

 

Exactly.

 

Now, imagine Watkins or Mack for TB

The fact that Tampa Bay is improving should come as a shock to no one here. The Lovie Smith hire told us what we were in store for, they had plenty of talent to begin with.

Its all relative.

 

We kept a 15 sack DE, Tampa signed a 3.5 sack DE, ATL signed one with 4.

 

Tampa signed Verner but are going to cut Revis, i'll take that trade.

 

We still technically have Smitty, there is still hope for those out there.

Damn that's a lot of money. Bill Polian said earlier this week on ESPN that whoever paid any FA safety "corner money" was making a big mistake.

keep saying the same thing. the cap can be manipulated to however you want it to, and you can make room for whoever you want. every year, team after team shows this, but yet still the panthers just sit back and wait. the other signings didnt bother me, but this one does. the saints had less money ava. then the panthers but was yet to get a huge signing in Byrd.

You do realize that they signed Byrd knowing that they are mortgaging their future because Brees only has a couple of seasons left in him right? The Panthers aren't in the same situation as the Saints. IF they are going to win, they HAVE to win now.

so i guess every other team is mortgaging their future as well? Byrd is a stud FS, that just got paid by a team that had less money then the panthers. the panthers have been screaming we are cap strapped and rebuilding since 2010. that bs line is beyond old. again, you can manipulate the cap to how you want it. the panthers just choose not to.

Every other team? The Saints had little-to-no money to spend and then went out and bought a 54 million dollar safety to further complicate their issues. What other team did that? 

 

We HAVE been manipulating the cap man. How else do you think we are under it? Hurney really screwed this team by handing out so many big contracts in a short period of time. We would never get out of this situation if we didn't learn from our mistakes. Chill out. Free agency has just started, moves still have to be made, and the draft is yet to be had.

 

Everyone on this board seems to be having a meltdown like a 5-year old in Toys-R-Us that was told he can't get anything right after they see another kid's mommy buying that kid a new toy.
