#3244604 Panthers Release Safety Thomas DeCoud

Posted by hepcat on 17 February 2015 - 02:28 PM

This was a no-brainer cut with Tre Boston emerging and the $2mil in cap space it saves.  No way they'll cut Harper.  


Gotta say it feels good to be reigning division champs with something around $20 million in cap space, with more likely to come, and a young and talented roster.  Carolina is poised to make a big jump in 2015.

No - old and slow.  The team is trying to get faster and younger.

Talk about a no-brainer

#3240795 Has Voth changed his opinion of Hardy's future?

Posted by hepcat on 13 February 2015 - 12:27 PM

What has Hardy said that makes you believe he has changed his tune?


Um, when he said he'd "play for free" if Carolina brought him back?  SMH

He can be Cam's backup and they can smile at each other disingenuously all the time 

#3237508 Ted Ginn Jr could return to Panthers

Part of me thinks that fumble  against us in the playoffs was intentional.

#3235882 Will Steve Smith affect Torry Smith's opinion of signing with the Panthers?

Posted by hepcat on 09 February 2015 - 02:16 PM

If anything it will help us. 


Torrey lost a lot of touches and TDs in the first part of the year because of Smitty.  


Really hurt TS's FA value.


Wouldn't surprise me if the Ravens cut or greatly reduced Steve's role in the Ravens offense (especially with a new coordinator coming in) and keep Torry Smith.  After the playoff loss John Harbaugh told Smith to take some time to think about if he wants to return for another season, so who knows what they're thinking.



#3235860 Will Steve Smith affect Torry Smith's opinion of signing with the Panthers?

Posted by hepcat on 09 February 2015 - 02:05 PM

Torry Smith spent a year playing with Steve Smith in Baltimore.  It's well known Steve is pretty salty after his release from the only team he had ever played for.  Back in September, Smith also made some comments about Cam not being able to read coverages in the red zone which is one of the reasons for Carolina's struggles in converting TDs in the red zone.  




"In fact, he told close friends he doesn't believe Cam Newton sees the field at all, specifically in the red zone. What Steve Smith told friends is that Cam Newton doesn't think fast enough or isn't precise enough to succeed in the red zone.




Wonder if a year of listening to Steve Smith bash the Panthers will affect if he'll consider signing with the Panthers. 

#3229841 Russell Wilson is smoke and mirrors.

Posted by hepcat on 03 February 2015 - 03:01 PM

Wilson isn't good in the way Tom Brady is good.  They're complete oppposites.  Brady is the standard definition of a pocket passer.  He stands tall in the pocket, surveys the defense, and finds the open man.  They use good route running and quality blocking to get receivers open.  


Wilson is more of a streetballer QB in that he's at his best when a play has broken down and he needs to make something happen at the last minute.  I can't tell you how many times I've seen him scramble around in the pocket getting chased by defenders, then deliver a perfect ball to a receiver on third down.  And at the same time, he's a threat to run and has the build and speed of a running back.  He's an extremely dangerous QB.  Plus, his previous baseball experience has taught him how to slide correctly, something Cam Newton might never learn.

Stupid playcall at the end but Wilson is a good/almost great QB

#3224867 Colin Cole vs Dwan Edwards

Posted by hepcat on 31 January 2015 - 01:13 PM

Cole retires. Kyle Love vs similar young DT in training camp. Re-sign Dwan for 1 year to back up Short.

Nah were not touching Green-Beckham.  If it was just the weed, sure.  (Side note, why hasn't Josh Gordon signed with the Broncos yet?)  But after Greg Hardy and the speech JR gave, no way we're touching ANY player with a history of hitting women.
