So... It turns out you can't poo all over respected veterans and find comparable replacements after all...

Hillarious how you say he's not proven, but went on and on about how much trouble we are in and how much we will regret letting Mike Mitchell go. The same guy he found and gave a 1 year deal to when no one wanted him. 

 

Apparently no one bothered to watch Mike Mitchell's presser. Basically he had nothing but good things to say about the Panthers (yeah, expected that) and thanked them for giving him the chance to prove himself and what he could do. The guy probably had no intention of staying a Panther this year. In fact, he stated that last year the Panthers asked him to sign a multi-year contract and he declined, wanting only a 1 year contract.

After playing his first four NFL seasons with the Oakland Raiders, Mitchell took a chance and signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers, as he was “banking on myself” to make the most of it and hopefully turn it into something bigger.

And apparently Panthers fans could've done better too. lol

Mitchell has only been a member of the Steelers for two days now, but said he has already gained over 10,000 followers on his Twitter account (@MikeMitchell34) and it’s likely that number will keep growing.

 

Suggest watching both videos. In the 'LIVE: Special Guest' video he talks a lot about last year with the Panthers. I believe he did some growing up while here too.

 

 

Those short contracts may not all have been Gettlemen's idea. This points out how young players and their agents are viewing 1 year contracts these days. They are taking a chance on themselves and it worked out well for the likes of Mitchell & Ginn. And it's in large part due to the team's success last year. I wish them all well. 

 

AND do NOT talk to me or moan about Munnerlyn. Last off season we let him walk & no team had any interest in him so he took our offer. He played no better than the year before really and his Viking payday is totally due to the Panthers defense's success.

Yes... I am completely sure Gross knew Smitty was about to get shat on by Gettleman and decided to troll fans on the way out. Thanks for that completely RATIONAL take on things.

Quite sure combine was before retirement speech

Some teams like New England dump their vets all the time and they can't sign anyone, right?? And they are screwed every year to finish 4-12, right??

difference is their FO acts like adults while conducting business.  Agree with the moves so far or not, they were handled poorly

I think you could find a bunch of players who have released by NE who might disagree with you.  They are pretty ruthless I hear.

Wes Welker might have a few things to say

Gettleman clearly stated when he got here, and reiterated it this off season that because of our cap problem, it will be two to three years before we can be real players in free agency. Until then we have to be patient and find diamonds in the rough. Do none of you pay attention? Why is it so fuging difficult to get that through your thick skulls?Sent from my SCH-I545 using CarolinaHuddle mobile app

You're absolutely right. That sounds like a damn fine reason why, in light of our money situation, you keep a veteran WR that's already under contract.

That's what you meant right?

Look... None of these non-signings make a difference to me. Proudiddy has a point tho... When you screw up like Gman did with this Smitty deal (again I mean more the PR side than other things) players you want to sign now and in the future notice.

To say Gettleman didn't royally fug up with Smitty is just wrong.

Can anyone recall a worse offseason for us? I mean, losing Smith, Gross, Lafell, Hixon, Ginn, Mitchell, Captain, and signing literally no one of value.

Read your post again. Do really think we need to financially hamstring this team anymore for that list of players? Gross retired, Smittty was overpriced for his age /production, but the rest of that list? My God, man. Set your sights a little higher than Lafell, Ginn, and Captain fuging Munnerlyn.

I think some of you need to channel your enthusiasm toward boy bands instead of football teams. Hear me out.

Boy bands rarely change members (granted that Lance Bass kid ended up playing for the other team) but he was the exception. Also when they break up, it is perfectly acceptable to go completely b!tchcakes. In fact, it's encouraged. Just something to consider. My 10 year old daughter really digs "One Direction" (not as much as some here dig Dominik Hixon apparently) but still. Give it a try.

I almost feel worse than if my dog died. Still in denial about the whole situation. I'll be angry soon. Then sad. Then the panthers will become the Panthers of 2010. Good defense, no offense. Shulas offensive philosophy ran the offensive FAs away, not Gettlemen. Even though he is a bastard.

My fellow Panther...

i wish mfers would quit giving DG credit for 12-4,he played a role but a smaller role then coaches and players......maybe even fans

 

 

fug it im going to call it how it is there's like 4 or 5 of you claiming we aren't making moves because of the CAP situation and blah this and that, why the majority is worried that we just went into a rebuild mode after winning the division..............then you call us whinners and other bs

 

so there's 1 or 2 of you calling a group of 20 or more whinners................how does that look......pretty damn stupid IMO

The Patriots also had Welker's replacement lined up (Amendola), unfortunately he didn't really work out... but they also have the best QB in the world as well, sooooo....
