#2869903 Brenton Bersin?

Posted by Alverez on Yesterday, 01:25 AM

I spoke with Zod about him last season, as he caught pretty much anything thrown his way. Didn't make the squad because he wasn't "big enough" i think is what Zod mentioned. (correct me if I'm wrong Zod), but... this season he looks to hve put on some muscle, and is still running crisp routes and catching pretty much anything that comes at him.

As mentioned in Mondays TC report... the WR's were catching the ball well that day. And one of the tweets that came out was "Even Bersin is dropping balls today. That's saying something." Link: (https://twitter.com/...760918128709632)

I've liked that he's been pretty much the most surehanded pass catcher in training camp the last 2 training camps. But, there are other parts of his game he's been having to work on to make the active roster. I think he might be there this season.

I asked Zod on twitter today... "what are your thoughts Bersin making the team over mcnutt/king?"

His response was "Bersin easily beats both of them this year"

I like the kid, and hope he makes it. Would be a Cool Story (bro) if he does.

And I think someone mentioned that He might have a shot as well, cuz "Cam likes him".

Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Thank again Jeremy! Awesome photos and comments from you again. It sucks that my time at training camp is over. But living vicariously thru these threads is almost as good.

Thanks for all the pics guys much appreciated. However, its been 2 practices and I think ive heard
every one of our wrs names except avant anyone have any news on him?


From what I've seen, he has been pretty consistent. Had a few nice catches at Fan Fest.

Flat out awesome as always! Thanks again.

I'm still editing my photos... but I did get a few of these...







This last one is one of my fav's. Short and Gettleman jumping and doing a shoulder bump... well.. Kinda jumping on GMans part.

I thought Short was going to lose his balance and crush Gman. LOL



#2841480 How Much Pressure on KB13?

Posted by Alverez on 07 July 2014 - 04:53 AM

and just for the record... Smitty and Lafell dropped the same number of passes (6) and the issue was that many of them could have led to scores.

#2841479 How Much Pressure on KB13?

Posted by Alverez on 07 July 2014 - 04:52 AM

Meh, the whole Smitty thing has been argued/talked/chatted/tweeted/listened to death. Let it go! it's over, what we as fans have for a team now does nto include Smitty. Love him as a player. but no Player is greater than the team.


Looking ahead, I see KB as a contributor this season on 3rd downs and Red Zone plays. As we all seem to.


"IF" Ricky Proehl can get his old team mates to show up for Training camp, I think that'll help some too. but KB is doing the right things so far.

Hope it all works out! But that's the best part... we get to wait and see.

#2840469 I was there when...

Posted by Alverez on 05 July 2014 - 04:08 AM

MNF against Tampa in 2008... Just epic running and stiff arming going on all night.

(My first ever in person viewing of my Panthers playing a game) ...the Home Opener in 2004 MNF against Green Bay. (Smitty out for the season with his broken leg)

When we won the NFCS this past season... in Atlanta. I was there for the botched snap that pretty much sealed the game!

The Jacksonville downpour game! Still don't think there was any way they could tell Stews forearm was down or whatever.

The Smith escape from the Texans as well.

I have had a lot of memories now, thank god! and I can't wait for the next round of them!

#2837553 Best Cam Newton Article of the offseason?

Posted by Alverez on 02 July 2014 - 12:31 AM

It was a pretty good write up with stats backing up what he was talking about, and the obvious things that others already know.


Overall tho, it was positive and supporting Cam's growth as a QB in the NFL.

#2829567 Huddle Podcast Episode 3 - New and Improved!

Posted by Alverez on 25 June 2014 - 03:51 AM

Good Stuff!

Enjoyed the new intro music.

I agree with Sammi Jo, BTW, on the Pumpkin Pie.

I am waiting on the whole training camp thing still. I'm surprised they haven't announced anything yet (Panthers.com wise) Some people said the team reports on the 24th, and then tonight speculation of the Tuesday before being the start of Training camp. I try to go down there for the first day or 2.. if they start mid week that might be tough.

Chris Kroeger, grats on the new gig. I have listened once (I sleep during the day as I work 3rd shift) Keep up the good work.

And Huddle peeps! Enjoyed the haiku's. LOL Good job!

Look forward to the next one!

#2829555 Haters gonna hate...

Posted by Alverez on 25 June 2014 - 02:36 AM

Just for the record... (cuz I'm really bored and pissed off at work)

I know it's not the 96 receptions that the list provided used. But...
(per http://www.sportingc...ats/drops/2013/ , using the lists from the 2 other seasons)

Cotchery -
2013: 45 REC 2 DROPS 76 TARGETS 2.6% Drop Percentage
2012: 17 REC 1 DROPS 27 TARGETS 3.7% Drop Percentage
2011: 15 REC 2 DROPS 30 TARGETS 6.7% Drop Percentage

TOTAL: 77 REC 5 DROPS 133 TARGETS 4.3% Drop Percentage

Which is at the bottom percentage of that provided list. (with the difference being he had 19 less receptions than that list)

Just to have it out there.

And since I am bored, and ppl have mentioned it, Here's where Smith and LaFell would be on that list if it went farther down, percentage wise:

Smith -
2013: 64 REC 6 DROPS 110 TARGETS 5.5% Drop Percentage
2012: 73 REC 7 DROPS 138 TARGETS 5.1% Drop Percentage
2011: 79 REC 7 DROPS 129 TARGETS 6.7% Drop Percentage

TOTAL: 216 REC 20 DROPS 377 TARGETS 5.8% Drop Percentage

Lafell -
2013: 49 REC 6 DROPS 86 TARGETS 7.0% Drop Percentage
2012: 44 REC 3 DROPS 76 TARGETS 4.0% Drop Percentage
2011: 36 REC 2 DROPS 56 TARGETS 3.6% Drop Percentage

TOTAL: 129 REC 11 DROPS 218 TARGETS 4.9% Drop Percentage
