#3261369 So be honest and completely objective.. Is there really a LT worth a true 1st...

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 03 March 2015 - 05:18 PM

You answered your own question. We have to wait until Pro Days.

Correction: Responsible fans (with little to no film) should wait for the evaluations of Pro Days and team workouts before attempting to draw anything near a conclusion, especially where linemen are concerned.

I agree.

What we also need to do is sit back and watch who they invite in. DG and his team have done a wonderful job at evaluating talent and bringing them in. Outside of injuries most of our draft picks have been solid from DG. No true busts, yet.

This year DG will not allow OT go unaddressed. I think Oher will be a Panther and a 2-5 Round OT will be brought in to be a backup and fine tune his craft.

OK the man played for a Super Bowl winning team. A solid LT for 5 years. Then he goes to an offensive line that was about as bad as ours and now he is worse than Bell?

I'll take his 5 previous years over one partial year on a sad oline.

Put him back on the Left Side where he has played since college and he'll be just fine.

Providing he has healed from his injury.

The only thing that will keep DGB on our radar is that he hasn't been in trouble lately. I do believe that he will be one of our 30 visits and our staff will do extensive research and interviews on him. He may even get a visit to see JR. If he falls to us and the opportunity is there. I believe our staff is going to want to have all the information available whether they select him or pass on him.

No speed on the outside.

The end.

Don't need to watch.

Since you are such a great critic why don't you post a video of your own. I am sure it will be as high a quality as you are a poster.

LilSmitty does an excellent job every time he does these. You should be appreciative that we have someone with this talent.

Thanks LilSmitty

#3213349 Deflate-Gate: Patriots Being Investigated For Deflated Footballs

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 19 January 2015 - 02:28 PM

If they are proven guilty. Billicheat should be banned from the game, forever. The guy looks for ways to get by. History shows when he cheats they win. Prior to tapegate the Cheatriots were 10-0 in the playoffs. After (prior to the start of the 2014 playoffs) they were 8-8.

And since this is there second offense. They should lose all draft picks. Maybe even given to the teams they cheated against.

#3207034 Strickland & Henson's take on the tightening bond between G-man &...

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 15 January 2015 - 11:45 PM

Year three begins shortly. I am excited about this offseason since Dave said we have graduated from Dollar Store Dave to something less frugal.

He'll be wise in how he spends his free agent money but I am excited to see what he brings us.

#3206997 Better know a Prospect - Jake Fisher

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 15 January 2015 - 11:05 PM

I'd take him in the third, absolutely. Maybe even the second. To get a starting OT
in the second works just fine for me.

just because the line gelled at the end of the year doesn't mean we don't need
upgrades at BOTH tackle positions. I'd love to see him and Remmers fight it out
in camp.

One thing you can bet. Gettleman will not pick a player in a round higher than he is rated. If he is rated a 3rd or 4th. Gettleman won't take him in the second. Gettleman does not like to reach.

#3206494 Explain the Duron Carter hype to me please

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 15 January 2015 - 04:15 PM

Being brutally honest, that he's Cris's son is probably the biggest part of it. Outside of that, the fact that he's 6'5 and has a highlight reel factors in.

I do think some folks are overrating the 'history repeats itself' angle. Yes, his dad turned it around from having a bad attitude to become a Hall of Famer. And yes, he's had a bad attitude and could do the same, but I don't think he's as talented as his dad and honestly, that's a big stretch anyway.

I'm cool if we sign him. If he works out well maybe he and Benjamin can form a 'twin towers' type of attack as receivers.

But if we don't, I won't consider it any huge tragedy.


With the idea of saving a couple bucks and the fact we need speed. He would be worth the signing.

Watching the Falcons search has been amusing :lol:

Jeff Davidson is available..... I think.

#3205045 Will Josh Norman command a big contract next offseason?

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 14 January 2015 - 04:45 PM

You don't pay guys big and sweet deals who only have 7 games of legit play to their name....with lots of bad prior.

Yes, hopefully it just took him awhile to "get it". You still don't throw cash at a guy like that. A a nice R easonable deal should be offered....nothing more.

Where did I say throw cash or sweet deal? I said solid deal which would be similiar to reasonable deal.

What we both know is that if he goes through 2015 without a deal. While you might be OK with losing him. I am not. The guy has finally got what his role is. How to be premier. So what if it was 7 games. The fact that he shut down pretty much every receiver he was assigned to indicates to me he is too valuable to let him go. He will be worth a nice salary.

If we don't do our homework rounds 5-7 is gonna look like Hurney years.

I am sure the pro personnel staff is in high gear.

#3204862 Will Josh Norman command a big contract next offseason?

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 14 January 2015 - 02:14 PM

Some of you amaze me. Thread after thread someone is complaining about the back end of our defense. We finally have that player (though it took a couple years to develop) and now we think he isn't worth paying for.

Hopefully, DG is going to get a solid deal done with him but make no mistake. Norman as important of a player for the defensive backfiield as CJ or Star is for the DL, Luke for the LBs.

Figure out a way to pay him for another 5 yrs or so and let him retire a Panther.

#3203941 The Shula hate is overblown.

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 13 January 2015 - 08:28 PM

I don't look what he did last year or this year. He was hired because he knew the Chudz Playbook and was supposed to use it and make it better. His playbook does not resemble Chudz playbook what so ever. Everything seems slow.

I don't think Shula will ever get us over the top and into the Super Bowl.

#3201674 Duron Carter visiting Wednesday

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 12 January 2015 - 08:29 PM

Sign him. Don't let him out of here. We have an opportunity to grab a guy who can start right away. If Gettleman likes him he needs not let him live Charlotte except to go back to Montreal and pack his bags to come back to Blue Heaven.

Ricky Proehl could be a huge advantage to us. WR coach that is one of the best.

Go Panthers
