I can't laugh at the saints for signing Bailey and then get on board with this. Dude is like 34 or so isn't he? No thanks.

#2727059 McNabb weighs in on our lack of a threat at WR (via D. Newton)

Posted by Montsta on 04 April 2014 - 01:14 PM

Sometimes it takes a change of scenery for some players to finally make a splash such as ginn and mike mitchell both were high draft picks so obviously the talent was there ginn actually looked like a legit wr last season king is a 5th round draft pick and mcnutt is a undfa iirc so yes history says that late round draft guys rarely make an impact and I mean rarely. They do pan out but not as often as some people think

The point in trying to make is this.

Our receivers last year were poo. Steve Smith as much as it pains me to say isn't Steve Smith anymore. Hell, by his own admission he's not a #1 anymore. He's not a guy you need to double cover because he can burn you over the top and he's not a guy you need to gameplan around anymore. Another year on his body isn't going to make that better all of a sudden. LaFell will be entering year five and hasn't done anything at this point to warrant any kind of support for him staying. Tedd Ginn is fast but drops a lot. He's at least decent and I wish he stayed, but not for a fraction of what he ended up getting.

So here we are with a bunch of jags for receivers, and yet people are going crazy because we let then go and didn't bring anyone in. The offseason isn't over yet, and there is no doubt in my mind that our receiving corps can be better by the time the season starts.

Could our receivers be worse than last year? Yes, absolutely.

But they could also be a lot better. And the guys we let go weren't going to just get better magically.

Because history tells us they wont be we'll have toget really lucky for one of those guys to pan out

History tells us that a 35 year old receiver won't do poo. History tells us LaFell will never amount to poo. History tells us Ginn is a bust that got overpaid by a shortsighted team. History also told us that Mike Mitchell was a personal foul machine and a wtf were they thinking type signing. Our receivers were known garbage. I'd rather see what we have and maybe they'll be garbage than to trot out the same garbage that isn't magically going to get better.

She is showing a little skin in a classy yet seductive way in her profile pic, and she is talking about a potential draft picks strengths in zone coverage versus his struggles in man coverage.

Just say the words and I'll hop on a flight to NC this evening. Beauty and high football acumen? I'm in love.

Listen to me very carefully. The goal shouldn't be to replace production, but to exceed it. At this point we haven't even replaced it

And listen to me very carefully, the draft is next month and the season doesn't start until September. We are far from knowing who will even be suiting up at WR for us next season, so to be bitching now makes you look pretty fuging silly.

Funny how McNabb mentions LaFell being able to catch balls off Steve Smith. We've all seen what LaFell is capable of when Smitty isn't on the field, in other words nothing. So by that logic as soon as we dropped Smitty, LaFell leaving just went hand in hand.

McNabb may have lived through a similar scenario, but the fact of the matter is this. It will not take much at all to replace the production of Smitty, LaFell and Ginn, who would be a decent #2, an #3-4 tweener, and a #2-3 tweener on most other teams. McNabb may have valid points, but please understand he is another talking head looking at this team from a distance who doesn't watch this team regularly. I bet you he watched maybe 3 games plus the playoff loss last year.

Hahaha jokes on her. That life vest won't help her at all if it's not properly zipped and buckled. Silly girl.

Don't know anything about the guy, but considering Boldin kicked our ass by himself in the playoffs, I'll take some of what he's having please.

#2724483 Rams sign Britt to 1 year, 1.5 million dollar deal

Posted by Montsta on 02 April 2014 - 10:11 AM

Well I think it's more of how this board runs. It seems things have gotten out of hand and camps have formed. I don't know, it really just feels split here to the point that when one side tries to make relevant discussion it spirals into flames pretty quickly. Even from your post I'm seeing you be a bit defensive, but I'm not trying to insult you.

I'm not defensive in the least. You said this is a message board for Panthers discussion, so I'm trying to have a discussion. You said that the camp of people that dislike Gettleman's decisions have well thought out reasons on why they don't like move x or move y. Forgetting just how unrealistic that statement is for the sake of discussion is fine, so we will move forward on the assumption that that is true.

You say that people that support Gettleman devolve to name calling and say our focus is just go with it and it's only March, but you are saying it with a negative connotation. So my question to you again is why is my opinion of "it's way, way too early to be pressing the panic button, let's see how the offseason plays out first" any less valid than someone's opinion of "we have no weapons for Cam, is he going to be on the Jets or Cowboys when his contract is up?".

Surely you as a level headed observer and knowledgeable football person can see why the constant, incessant comments like that can make even the most eloquent wordsmith resort to calling these people idiots.

I'm all for debate and grown up discussion, but you are admittedly new here and I'm assuming you haven't seen the rash plague of people coming in here wanting to burn down the stadium and move the team to LA and fire Gettleman because he let Steve Smith go or because we didn't sign Hakeem Nicks.

It has been cut into camps because in the age of smartphones and twitter and social media, people want everything now and if you can't get it now there is often times no rational discussion to be had.

When I was young, we called it a tantrum. Try to have a logical debate with a child throwing a tantrum because it's nap time and let me know how many of your well thought out and structured talking points you get through before resorting to treating the child like a child and just putting them to bed.

That's what it's been like here the last month. And this is in no way meant to be disrespectful to you personally, all new people are welcome here. I'm just telling it like it is.

Posted by Montsta on 02 April 2014 - 09:49 AM

I am, and from reading through threads is kind of funny. The "Gettleman haters" state why they don't agree with X decision and the "Gettleman lovers" come in and insult them (chicken little, sky falling, sarcastic posts that have no input to the topic) while arrogantly posturing. I keep reading posts such as "it's march", but what's the point of having a forum if you can't discuss the Carolina Panthers, especially in the off-season? It's kind of ridiculous how "go along with the program" it is here.

So if a "Gettleman hater" approach to discussion is I hate Gettlemanand he's an idiot because we didn't sign any WR in FA and who is Cam gonna throw the ball to, and my rebuttals to that is it's only March, let's wait and see how the rest of the offseason plays out before pushing the panic button or firing our GM, how is what I'm saying any less relevant for discussion than what some knee jerk reactionary is saying?

This is a board for Panthers discussion you are right, but you are trying to marginalize people whose football discussion on April 2nd mostly involves reality. As in, let's scrape the FA bargain bin, and let's see what happens in the draft before freaking out. There's nothing in that stance that means some of us are towing the company line or that we are FO yes men. Some of us have a level head and don't freak out because we didn't sign a receiver to a $24MM contract with $16MM guaranteed that if history is any indicator, he is going to ask for a new contract after one season anyway.

#2724458 Rivera says Cam wasn't consulted in WR moves

Posted by Montsta on 02 April 2014 - 09:37 AM

Seattle's offense was better than Carolina's in rushing, passing and scoring. Marshawn Lynch is better than everyone on the Panthers offense, they're primarily a rushing team and have invested in their O-line and spent 2 high picks on the RBs behind Marshawn.

This is precisely why several people have said we are a year or two behind the likes of Seattle or SF. They had monster defenses and have been able to build out the offense through the draft and FA.

We have built out our monster defense and as we draft and shed contracts, we will build our offense up as well. That's the problem I have with most people on this board. People act like some window has closed on our ability to win a championship, and it's several YEARS premature. We have like $20MM+ this year going to Jordan Gross, Steve Smith, Jon Beason, and Deangelo Williams. Only one of those guys are going to have any meaningful playing time this year. You want to know where is our offense? There you go. We will draft oline and we will draft WR's and we will pickup complementary pieces through FA and we will win a Super Bowl, but because we didn't sign Desean Jackson and Hakeem Nicks people throw childish tantrums.

If you think one FA period put the 49ers or Seahawks where they are then you are impossible to get through to.

#2724429 Panthers workout DE Kony Ealy, and Proehl is @USC today

Posted by Montsta on 02 April 2014 - 09:12 AM

Here's the thing about BPA. Your strengths don't stay your strengths forever and your weaknesses don't stay your weaknesses forever. I know some of you are gonna say ok so we should draft a QB then if he's the BPA and if that's your initial thought kill yourself because you are garbage and not worth discussing things like a grown up.

We were weak as hell at DT for years and one draft made that an area of strength for us. We are good at DE now, but if we traded Hardy or CJ or one of them got hurt, we'd be realistically stacked with unknowns with Addison and Alexander.

We love our linebackers, but Thomas Davis is entering the twilight of his career with 3 ACL surgeries and a monster cap hit next season, so who knows what the FO will want to do with him. If Steve Smith was expendable, anybody can be let go.

We all bitch and moan about the contracts given to our billion dollar backfield, but if they're released simultaneously and Kenjon Barner is fumbling the ball every game, you'll hear about our needs at RB real fuging quick.

This is the essence of the NFL and why successful teams draft good players, mostly regardless of their position, because the NFL is a fluid league where your roster is constantly evolving so you don't truly know what you'll need year by year. You remedy that by adding good football players to your team regardless of their position. That's how you build sustained success.

#2724412 DeSean Jackson agrees to terms with Redskins

This is probably the worst fan-base in the league. You guys have no idea how this fanatic thing work. Just because you're a carolina fan doesn't mean you have to be nasty for no reason about other teams and their players. You guys are relegated to being a group of trolls instead of fans. It's surprising that when you go to other message boards that they have the utmost respect for Cam. I know this team is young and lack deep rooted traditions but seriously, enough of this nonsense. Them signing jackson had nothing to do us. RG3 will be alright. To play devil's advocate, he had as many playoffs appearances as cam.

And, injury is part of the game. Peyton and brad.y can tell you all about it.

I've never been to another teams board where more than a handful of people there would piss on Cam Newton if he were on fire. The oerwhelming majority have a personal hatred toward him and it's a small few that even post something positive about the guy. It is what it is. fug them and their teams.

Posted by Montsta on 02 April 2014 - 08:46 AM

Lets start a Betting pool. When Cam's contract expires, does he become a Jet or Cowboy?

Cam Newton will be a Carolina Panther until the team decides they no longer want him here, sometime around 2027 I'd wager.
