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.

Hardy was our FA signing this year. Dumpster diving from dollar tree Dave from here on out.

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.
