#2681575 Panthers attempting to trade Steve Smith.

Posted by Montsta on 10 March 2014 - 04:09 PM

If you would have told me back in 2008-2009 that we'd be trading Jon Beason and Steve Smith for a 7th rounder each, I woulda told you to have your head examined.

The NFL, she is a fickle bitch boy I tell ya.

#2677307 No Joke: The players apparently didn't like Gettleman

Posted by Montsta on 06 March 2014 - 04:55 PM

He has also set the tone so that when it's time to negotiate, every player up will do the same thing he's doing. If they see that he's business to the extreme, the players will do the same. It's good to be all business, but hopefully he's personable to make up for it or he'll have all of our stars asking for the supermax contract.

Not good with Cam, Luke, and Star waiting in the wings.

But by that rationale, players should have been giving all kinds of warm fuzzy discounts when Hurney was here because gee whiz they just love the organization. Charles Johnson got a massive contract. Charles Godfrey got a massive contract. Jonathan Stewart and Deangelo Williams both got massive contracts. Jon Beason at one point signed the largest contract ever for a MLB. None of these guys took a voluntary paycut when we were in cap hell every year because they just love Charlotte.

As fans we tend to want to keep players around eva use we get attached to them. They are the athletes who get us all pumped up on Sundays, not the fat bellied GM who tucks his polo shirt into his short shorts. So we take it personal when they get mad (Smitty) or when they leave on less than stellar terms (Beason).

At the end of the day I'll take Gettleman's approach ten times out if ten. No more max contracts for making topless workout videos or for riding stationary bikes. Hardy was a clear example. No, we will not overpay you for one solid year. He produced again this past season, and will now be well compensated for it. I have no problem with paying top tier talent top tier money, but for too long we've given out contracts that are out of line with performance or playing time.

Do your job, you'll get paid. Do it really well, you'll get paid really well. Very simple. Riding the coat tails of a decent season you had years ago isn't gonna fly anymore, and this fan couldn't be any happier about that.

I already picked one up and am willing to trade it to someone for a photo shopped picture of my head on Greg Hardy's body for my galaxy lock screen.

#2675911 VIDEO- Greg Hardy On ESPN First Take

Posted by Montsta on 05 March 2014 - 03:26 PM

With the complete fuging retards that the NFL often produces, it's nice to hear a player that can string together a coherent and rational thought on TV.

#2675593 Greg Hardy up next on first take

Posted by Montsta on 05 March 2014 - 11:43 AM

Guess who he mentioned? Jon Beason. 3 time pro bowler.

AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year (2013)
Pro Bowl (2013)
AP First-Team All-Pro (2013)
AP NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year (2012)
NFC Defensive Player of the Year (2013)
PFW/PFWA Defensive Rookie of the Year (2012)
NFL Combined Tackles Leader (2012)
PFW/PFWA All-Rookie Team (2012)
USA Today All-Joe Team (2012)
NFC Defensive Rookie of the Month (December, 2012)
3× NFC Defensive Player of the Week (Week 14, 2012, Week 10, 2013, Week 16, 2013)
NFL single game tackle record (24)

We all know he got screwed out of a pro bowl spot as a rookie considering he lead the league in tackles. And he is only 22 years old. You can keep trying there bud, but Kuechly and [insert LT here] is a better combination than Beason and whatever mediocre Tackle we would have gotten in the draft that year.

#2674771 Hardy Update: He signs tender, long term talks continue

Posted by Montsta on 04 March 2014 - 04:02 PM

Personally, I love that we retained Hardy. Between him and CJ, and Star and KK improving from their rookie seasons, our D-Line will be the best in the NFL next year. With Kuechly and TD behind them with an improved Klein and an improved Lester, our entire defense will beast every team we play. If offense scores 14, we'll win 75% of our games next year.

#2673310 Jon Beason: Would we have been better off?

Posted by Montsta on 03 March 2014 - 02:14 PM

Kuechly is the best player and heart and soul of one of the best defenses in the league. Switching him with Beason and a LT doesn't make us all of a sudden score 28/game. But his consistent missed tackles will make us go from giving up 14 a game to like 17 a game which would be a huge difference in many I our final outcomes this past year.

Posted by Montsta on 03 March 2014 - 02:02 PM

They are the Buccaneers.

What part of 80's digital alarm clock numbers screams pirate to anybody? They should have done less black on the shoulders, and a number font conducive to the theme they are trying to set.

What in the actual fug happened here?

#2673212 Does size matter?

My wife says no, every single one of my exes says yes.

So probably yes. :(

#2671273 Over The Cap weighs in on Hardy FT, Smitty

Posted by Montsta on 01 March 2014 - 02:32 PM

Not me, I don't want to seem like I'm bashing gettleman at all so I apologise if I come across like that, my only frustration is the lack of offensive talent we have both on the line and weapons, i just hope he addresses this in this years draft, he has done a great job thus far I can't knock him on that, I guess when you look at the bigger picture he had a hell of a task, I'm just an impatient fan.

Don't apologize. The whole point of this boar is for people to talk about the Panthers and share their opinions. They're not always gonna be the same and people won't always agree blindly with the direction the team is headed for better or worse.

#2669276 Panthers, Hardy talking long-term deal

Posted by Montsta on 27 February 2014 - 10:27 PM

Careful now it's Person reporting this.....

That's great news!!!!

It means a deal has already happened!!

See you guys later I'm going to buy an elite Hardy Nike jersey from the team store!

#2669255 David Newton's take on the 89 situation: Can't accuse him of being a...

Posted by Montsta on 27 February 2014 - 10:14 PM

I respect Newton's job as a blogger for the team, so he has to role with the flavor of the week so to speak, but this was ridiculous when it started, and remains ridiculous today IMO.

#2667632 We MIGHT* be tagging Hardy *Zod is in denial

Posted by Montsta on 26 February 2014 - 07:02 PM

Zod is right about the "more wiggle room" unaffiliated guys like Voth have compared to the local guys like Person, JJ, etc. When Person/JJ break a story about the panthers - you can take it to the bank. But Voth doesn't have to worry about the disastrous redaction and he's not accountable to his editors, bosses, etc.

But...Voth could legitimately have an inside guy on the team. His source may feel more comfortable talking to a freelance guy than talking to a tenured beat writer or NBC media troll like Darin Gantt.

I'm not a fan of Voth's tone and I do think he is a troll - but so far he's been on the $$$ this off season. I can put up with his snarky comments/Cam hate if that means he's gonna give us the goods and inside info. It's like Jeff Goodman on ESPN college bball. He's a troll and UNC hater - but he's arguably the best college hoops insider there is.

In fairness, if Person breaks a story you can take it to the bank because that means it happened two weeks ago and the rest of the planet already knows about it.

Lord I hope local news or NFL Films or somebody got a good angle on that 'Happy Trails' performance.

Ryan Kalil can actually carry a tune (half-decent anyway).

I look at your sig and I want to cry. :(
