#3060737 If you were in control of this team, what would you do right now?

Posted by hepcat on 31 October 2014 - 10:47 AM

TL;DR from everyone:


Fire Shula and cut Roman Harper.

#3060713 12-4.....and why it was so bad.

Posted by hepcat on 31 October 2014 - 10:40 AM

The team looked set up for sustained success last year.  Young franchise QB winning games in the 4th Quarter, the 2nd ranked defense in the NFL with the defensive player of the year at MLB.  A defensive line that lead the NFL in sacks that featured two rookies playing a significant number of snaps.  


Problem is, they didn't upgrade ANYWHERE on the roster.  They downgraded the offensive line, the WR's are about the same, the secondary is worse.  You can't have this huge amount of turnover on the roster year to year and expect to win every season.

It's not just Shula man.  There were plenty of times that Cam had a ton of time to throw, even on third downs, and he's making the wrong read, a bad throw, or just not getting the ball out fast enough.  Blame goes all the way around - the entire offense is bad.  There's nothing to be hopeful about.  At least the defense isn't getting steamrolled anymore and games might look closer than they should.

#3060451 Don't want to say it but...

No.  Not with games against the Falcons2x, Vikings, Browns, and Bucs at home still to play at the end of the season.  Rivera's teams have always turned it on at the end of the season and I expect the same.  Too little too late though.  6-9-1 or 7-8-1 is the final record.

#3055528 Cam's Next Contract

Posted by hepcat on 30 October 2014 - 04:50 PM

Okay guys let's be clear, the Panthers have never had any intention of letting him walk.  Why would they?  He's the most talented player they've ever had.  A franchise QB like that comes around once in a generation.  


The important question is - does Cam want to stay in Carolina?  

#3054896 Huddle is on High Alert....

Preparing for the inevitable thrashing the Panthers are about to endure...priceless.

#3052441 The Panthers are 14-5-1 over their last 20 games...

The real important stat is the Panthers are 147-163-1 

#3050876 OT Remmers Signed. Lester Bumped to Active Roster. Darrin Reaves Released....

Posted by hepcat on 28 October 2014 - 09:36 AM

Good to see Deangelo coming back - the Reaves release signals that.  Was hoping for a bit more of a splash but Mike Remjob will have to do.  

#3050872 Panthers sign Rams OT Mike Remmers from Practice Squad to 53 Man Roster

Posted by hepcat on 28 October 2014 - 09:35 AM

His nickname will henceforth be Mike Remjob.  

#3050779 Mark Barron via Trade?

Posted by hepcat on 28 October 2014 - 08:58 AM

The Panthers were set to draft him if he'd been there in 2012.  They drafted Kuechly instead.  So maybe this isn't impossible....

#3048767 Is there a decent LT on someone's practice squad?

Posted by hepcat on 27 October 2014 - 12:45 PM

I hope Gettleman is at least looking at the tackles around the league and maybe considering trading for one.  There is a backup on a team somewhere that is lightyears better than Bell.

#3048464 I'm not blaming Shula

Posted by hepcat on 27 October 2014 - 11:09 AM

Lol, hep, you really think Nicks would be having the same season here that he is having there? Lol, he'd instantly be a #1 or 2 here, it would be pretty interchangeable with KB. That's just like people brining up Mitchell's season with the Steelers as justification as to why we didn't try to re-sign him. He fit here. It doesn't mean he will elsewhere.


How do you know Nicks would be tearing it up here?  That's a ridiculous assumption.  Benjamin is a beast - he's already better than Nicks.  If they signed Nicks, would they have even drafted Benjamin?  You have to be insane to say you'd rather have Nicks over Benjamin.  It came down to money and Gettleman didn't want to pay for Nicks.  WR is the least of the Panthers worries right now anyway so I don't even know why you brought that up.

#3048412 Why did it take an injury for Norwell to play?

Posted by hepcat on 27 October 2014 - 10:56 AM

This has been a theme for Panthers teams going back to the Fox era.  Starting veterans that have been with the team over young players who have more potential.  Must come from Richardson.
