I think Gurley will be long gone by the time we pick, so those who don't want him shouldn't have much to worry about. If he's there at 25 I expect one of two things to happen, either we trade down with a very eager partner, or we race to the podium to select him. We're talking about the second or third best player in this draft imo. A player who when paired with Cam in the option should devastate opposing defenses. This guy is a freak of nature who has a thrilling burst of speed, he explodes past or through defenders. Imagine a taller faster Stewart taking the option from Cam. Gone. This guy is a load to bring down, explosive violent burst, and he can flat out fly in the open field. To get a freak like that at 25 would be outright stealing.
Yes we need a LT, and WRs better than the scrubs we have, but I think Gettlegut will take about 2 seconds to decide on Gurley if he's there.
TD has slowed down with age, but he's the kind of LB who should retire with your team. He's admitted his legs and not what they once were, but he has less wear and tear on his upper body due to the seasons he missed. If Sam Mills deserved a statue, then TD should have three.
I don't think I'll ever understand the media's overreaction to the Greg Hardy situation. The instant I saw JR blubbering in that video I knew we'd never see Hardy play another snap for Carolina.
Does Hardy have a mental illness? Who knows? If the gold digger was being honest about what happened, then Hardy is mentally ill, and it's likely he'll act out again leading to another suspension. If the gold digger was lying, then we really got screwed by the whorish media and our puss owner.
With Hardy we might have beaten Seattle and won the SB. I'm not saying that's likely, but it could have happened. We now have to rely on developing Kony Ealy, and I hope he's not a bust.
I wish I wasn't in the position of hoping Hardy stays out of the NFC, but I would think he'd try to sign with a top team no matter which conference.
Last FA I thought was a total disaster. I (and all of sports media) thought Cotchery and Avant were terrible, and it turns out they were. Avant was cut, and Cotchery did jack poo. At the end of the season Gettleman blamed our cap problems for why he brought in poo WRs.
This FA we've brought in Oher, Ginn, and some guys no one has ever heard of. If I'm leaving someone out it's because I don't care. We're not winning a SB with this offense. Seattle, GB, or some other top NFC team will shut this offense down and bounce us out of the playoffs. We need offensive weapons and O-line improvements. The answer is not Ginn and Oher. Seattle will make Ginn and Oher their bitches. So now it's down to the draft because Gettleman is broke, or doesn't like what's out there value wise.
We're stuck looking to the draft for immediate starters at the WR position. Not good.
Seems like some pot stirring going on here. I think we can all agree that we need impact players on offense. Standing pat and hoping things pan out in the draft, which is in many way a crap shoot, is of course risky. We have limited funds of course, but we need an impact WR. A guy who can perform consistently even against defenses like Seattle. A rookie WR is going to go through growing pains and have ups and downs, or might not pan out at all. I'm hoping we make a major move for a proven WR, but my concern is that we'll wait around for cheap scrubs who won't accomplish much, and won't matter against Seattle, or other top defenses in the playoffs. See Cotchery. It's time to make a move, and then we can draft for the future.
Hardy allegedly threw what's her name on a bed full of guns, slammed a toilet lid on her arm while she was literally gold digging, and strangled her to the point where she believed she was going to die.
AP struck his child's rear with a switch multiple times.
While violence is worse? The violence experienced by the woman was worse because it came with the added fear of death. She felt as though she was about to die, and that terror is exceedingly excruciating. She made it clear that she wanted to die just to make the fear of death stop. That was a far worse experience than being beating by a switch. It's not close.
Dear Panther players reading this, don't strike your kids with anything. Talk to your kids. Don't hit your woman. Dump her.
We have an offensive system that requires deep passes down field as mandatory to function well. We had Avant and Cotchery, the two worst starting WRs in the NFL, who (I kid you not) were shut down by DEs. Yes DEs covered them like fuging glue. It happened. Avant and Cotchery can't go deep without the DB (not kidding) running five step ahead of them down the field. It happened. Our one good WR dropped I don't know how many deep passes, but a lot. To turn around and attack Shula is unfair imo. I'm not saying he did a great job, but Cotchery and Avant were horrible, and it crippled our offense. Throw in Chandler, the worst offensive tackle to ever start in the NFL (no I'm not joking) and you have a disaster on offense, and I don't care who you put in at OC. Add to the mix that Amini can't block stunts at all. He has never blocked a stunt well in his entire time here. Rivera won't throw Shula under the buss for garbage players who ruined our offense. Shula didn't make them terrible. They were already terrible or unproven when they arrived.
Going forward we've already dumped Avant, thank god. Now dump the rest of the dead weight. So long Cotchery. You're terrible and I could cover you, and so can DEs all the way down the field. And you quit on routes like a lazy asshole. Goodbye. So long Chandler, the worst OT we've ever had as a starter. You have to dump your worst players and bring in a new crop. Never keep bad players because they're cheap, or you owe them money. Pay them and dump them. They could be holding a roster spot of a star in the making. Dump and reload. Don't get cheap and hold onto junk. Don't be a hoarder GM.
