Byndom is quickly becoming one of my favorite rookies, hopefully he makes the squad this year.

Welp there goes the Super Bowl!

#2862972 Justin Blackmon, not Josh Gordon, is now the dumbest player in the NFL

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 24 July 2014 - 10:40 AM

It's like a contest between Blackmon and Gordon.

#2862858 Players check in this morning....

I was actually surprised at the low volume of uniform threads this offseason haha

We've already won the contest for best uniforms in the NFL, what else is there to talk about?

#2857901 Ashley Fox - Hardy Situation Trumps Others

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 19 July 2014 - 09:45 AM

Ray Rice's ko of his fiance on camera is certainly equal to Hardy's incident where a known gold digger starts throwing insane accusations with the only proof being injuries that she herself could've inflicted. Let's not even get into a phone call where you can hear her in the background acting crazy. I just don't see the proof when she avoids police when they arrive, misses court dates, then shows up late describing an unbelievable scene. I understand there are trolls who want to see the Panthers hurt, but this case spits in the eye of so many other domestic abuse cases for women that would've been tossed if not for this being so high profile. Just wish people would read the facts before lynching the guy.

#2852989 Hardy court thread : for all things that happen in court today

What an unfortunate draw of judge, I honestly couldn't say who was more guilty of domestic assault after the testimony.

How convenient that the Cavs lose Lebron, win 3 out of 4 1st overall picks in the lottery, then Lebron comes back. Almost feels like he was just out on loan.

He should do another decision show in his hometown and then go back to Miami.

This week on 30-for-30...

A player on the path to superstardom finds himself living under a bridge at only 26 addicted to drugs. This is the story of the Flash that never happened.


#2823528 Carolina Panthers Give LT Nate Chandler a 4 Year Extension

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 18 June 2014 - 02:08 PM

not to be a nattering nabob of negativism,  but perhaps this means Getty thinks we'll have to go

cheap on OT in order to afford Cam, Luke, Star and Hardy.


Of course keeping those four is not negative.


I think Gettleman believes Chandler can play LT or RT in the future and getting him cheap now is better than waiting until next year when Chandler plays OT at a high level and commands a starting OT contract. I think Getts is also looking at the strength of OT in the 2015 draft to lock down a high caliber OT for 4 years on a cheap rookie contract. 


What's tough is the fact we drafted two players back to back that will demand top dollar because they are two of the top players at their position. I think Star's contract will be more modest in comparison and either Hardy or Johnson wont be here in 2015.


I don't see a role for Bell past this season, I think it's already showing that the athleticism of Chandler is what Getts is looking for on the offensive line and it's something Bell lacks.  

#2823496 That was Nate with Cam yesterday!

From the reports I heard, he threw a 75 yard TD bomb to Kelvin Benjamin into triple coverage while dragging both Hardy and Johnson behind him. He then ran a 98 yard TD trucking Lotulelei, Davis and Kuechly on his way to the endzone.

#2823456 Carolina Panthers Give LT Nate Chandler a 4 Year Extension

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 18 June 2014 - 01:34 PM

Great signing, call it a hunch, but everytime I watch Chandler move I see the footwork of a LT. We'll see how it all pans out, but I've thought for the past year that Chandler could step in better as an OT than a OG. It seems Gettleman is trying to build an athletic offensive line when 4 out of 5 guys are more than capable of pulling, Bell being the exception.

Cam this season



Is that a team of Captain Munnerlyn clones on defense?

#2821330 Carolina has almost $19M in dead money on the books

Posted by Riverboat Ron on 16 June 2014 - 02:47 PM

The real interesting cap figure to watch will be Jimmy Graham if he wins arbitration. The Saints have less than $2 million in cap space and have Graham franchised as a TE at $7 million. If he wins, he'll get $12.5 million. That's $5.5 million that the Saints will have to find room for or sign Graham to the most expensive TE in history and backload his deal like every other player they've signed. Their only option is to restructure contracts since they've already cut most of the cap saving players. All I can say is that the Saints are screwed if the cap doesn't expand at a decent rate over the next 5 years.
