#3025581 Sam Mills a Semi-Finalist

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 18 October 2014 - 02:43 AM

I am pretty sure he is a longshot but just maybe he gets in.


If he does, does he go in as a Panther or a Saint?  Most would believe he would go in as a Panther.  Our first.


What a fitting tribute to a great player and an outstanding individual.

100K fine and 4 game suspension with a warning if he is caught again It will be a full season ban.


This is worse than the bountygate a couple of years ago.  The guy went after Cam and Olsen knowing they had bad ankles.



#3020221 Luke Kuechly's "What if" Behind the Scenes with Jordan Gross

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 14 October 2014 - 05:17 AM

Jordan really has a knack for this.   He is really funny and quite natural at it.


Kuechly is a beast.   Boy has zero body fat.

#3010181 Bengals Fans Predictions

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 11 October 2014 - 01:53 PM

Truth is that we need to show we can beat a team on the road that is favored to beat us before we can act indignant when opposing fans predict a big victory. I surely hope we get to do that in 2 days. I for one liked the feeling that we could beat anyone last year. I would like to recapture it from here on out.

This is the 2013 Niner game. Going into a top team.home and winning a tight one. We win confidence will be high for the rest if the season.

#3009656 Playbook on NFLN: A worrisome defensive stat

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 11 October 2014 - 04:29 AM

Uh, I thought it was pretty obvious our defense is no where near on the level it was last year.


2nd half of the Chicago game is the best it has looked all year. We can only hope it wasn't a fluke and we can return to some sort of high level.


That isn't true.  Game one and two were pretty solid performances just games 3 and 4 were abysmal.

#3004611 Chemistry

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 07 October 2014 - 03:43 PM

I said before the season if we could get through the first quarter 2-2 we would make the playoffs.


OL has there moments but all in all I think they are getting better as a unit.  We had some running lanes yesterday and not too many SNAFUs in pass protection.   The are build that chemistry.  They will keep getting better.


If the defense maintains their mojo from the first two games and the last half against the bears.  I say we go 8-4 down the stretch (one already in the books) and we win the NFC South 10-6.

#3004568 Trade for Morgan Moses?

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 07 October 2014 - 03:19 PM

Never reach for need, not even in later rounds.


This is the one thing Gettleman said that keeps ringing in my ears. 


When you reach you almost always fail. 


Hurst would have been a good pick for us but DG thought differently. 


Didn't we also offer a UDFA spot and he turned us down.


This goes to my belief we get a solid Tackle from the Free Agent market and build our depth through the draft.  Foucault and Norwelll could have future for us. Hopefully the coaches are working to see if that gem is a diamond or a piece of coal.

#3003924 First Down Brenton Bersin

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 07 October 2014 - 08:33 AM

Only four catches and no drops? Patriots offer to trade him for $13 million a year, four years guaranteed, but we have to take LaFell back


I'll keep the Current #11 over the old #11.

#3003746 byron bell

Unless we are in the position to grab a blue chip LT in the draft I would address the tackle position with a veteran free agent.  Top Tier Free Agent.  We hope that Foucault can develop into something special.  But he is probably not going to be ready till 2016.  Outside Kalil and Turner no one should feel safe.


That said, the running game showed some life and the O-line gave Cam time to throw in the second half.  We hope it means they are starting to gel.  Changing now may not be the best thing for the unit.  She may be ugly but this is who we brought to the dance.  Hopefully at midnight or so she'll blossom into a beauty queen and we'll be the talk of the town.

#3002359 David Deihl

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 06 October 2014 - 09:31 AM

Did anyone catch David Deihl yesterday.  I about fell out laughing at this goon. 


First of all I felt he wasn't much of a Panther fan and secondly he was talking about Olsen and he said.


Well he's built like a Tight End and I was laughing so hard I didn't hear the rest of what he had to say.


David got a hint for you.  He is a Tight End.

#2994689 SCP Alternate... And I'm not that good

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 02 October 2014 - 03:26 PM

Not to mention they stiff the greatest running back of all time for a TD in the Super Bowl.


Cam comes out.  Defense regains nastiness and we right the ship.


Go Panthers

#2991498 Gil Brandt draft redo

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 01 October 2014 - 12:26 AM

banging on gman now is short sighted. this is only his second season, and we have been cash strapped due to bad contracts still on the books. he's proven that he can pick quality talent. he'll build a solid roster through drafting and good contracts. 3 years few now, everyone will be praising the roster for having better backups than most teams have starters.


There is a reason we don't have line.  It isn't G'man fault.   You can't buy the steak if you only have hamburger money.   He has been doing what he could.   If we make it through this season and some of his money comes back.


We are going to rule the NFCS and become perennial contenders. 


I like G'man and his goals are just getting started.   Couple more decent drafts.   The future is bright no matter how badly we are playing now.

#2988846 I am disappoint

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 29 September 2014 - 03:58 PM

I am with you SCP.


I learned never to give up hope on our beloved Panthers in 2004.  After playing the Super Bowl we got riddled with injuries and started 1-7 but fought back and had we won the final game of the year we would have made the playoffs.  We didn't but the hope was there.


We are 2-2 with an offensive line that hasn't had much time together.  Things will Gel the D will get there poo together and we'll make it through.  But as you point us in the right direction.  I won't give up until the moment we are officially eliminated from the playoffs.

#2987182 Lack of Discipline

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 29 September 2014 - 06:01 AM

This isn't just about Harper.   The defense as a whole has looked terrible.

#2987158 Moving on is painful :)

Posted by DaveThePanther2008 on 29 September 2014 - 04:28 AM

Remember that one drop Kelvin had, and the penalties? He's doing amazing for a rookie, but Kelvin "litterally has me going to Jesus" Benjamin still has some stuff to work on.


Okay, but really Gettleman is on the right track? Our franchise QB might seriously not finish the season if things don't change.


KB does far more good than he does bad.  He has made some amazing plays.  Granted there have been a few WTF drops but clearly he is showing, by far, to be the best rookie WR in the NFL.


If you are a Panther fan then you know the cap situation. Gettleman can do better but he is on the track.
