#2346526 10 Questions with Jake Delhomme

Posted by hepcat on 30 August 2013 - 09:21 AM



5. I think [Chargers head coach] Mike McCoy is a hidden gem. It was very evident in the one year that I didn’t have him as my QB coach in Carolina—2009—I sucked. There’s no other way to put it. He played the position, he understands it, and he’s going to bring a family atmosphere to the team, and believe me, that does wonders.


Thought that was interesting.  Doesn't explain why he sucked in the playoffs against the Cardinals though!

That's because you're a idiot that would trade 5 younger WR for 1 32 year old WR.


'04 Moose maybe

#2343006 Person speculates on the RB situation

Posted by hepcat on 28 August 2013 - 10:08 AM

Would like to see Tolbert get more carries this year.  He has experience carrying the load and is the only proven power runner now that Stewart is is out for awhile.  With the Panthers porous O-Line, getting a power back in there to tire out the defense early in the game could open holes for the shiftier backs like Williams and Barner.

#2342993 The future of Clausen

Posted by hepcat on 28 August 2013 - 10:02 AM

Watch Jimmy get cut, sign with the Jets, start the game against the Panthers this year, and have the best game of his career.  400 yards, 5 TDS.  


In all seriousness though, the only reason he would get cut is to open up another roster spot.  Correct me if I'm wrong but it's my understanding that cutting him would cost just about the same as keeping him around.  Who knows what he does behind closed doors.  He seems like a smart guy and is basically another QB coach for Cam.  

#2342983 Lance Louis, RG (returning from ACL) cut unexpectedly

Posted by hepcat on 28 August 2013 - 09:57 AM

Yes, let's sign another player coming off ACL surgery that has been dumped by two teams with bad O-Lines (Bears, Dolphins).  Except this guy isn't familiar with the team or the playbook.  


Better cuts will come.  Pass.

#2340025 Other teams' cuts

Please god I hope no one suggested the Panthers sign Braylon Edwards.  If you like dropped passes, you'll love Braylon Edwards.

Well, the fact that he's not coaching to be a head coach should help.

#2328936 Is The Season Opener A "Must Win" For You?

Posted by hepcat on 19 August 2013 - 04:59 PM

I'm talking about 2003 because earlier in the thread the question was asked about the last time this team won a season opening home game. Not the home opener, and not the season opener, but an occurance of both. Someone answered 2003, which is correct.
I'd certainly agree that it would set a great tone moving forward, but as others have said, Seattle is projected as a candidate to reach the Super Bowl. Losing to them without looking like garbage is far from a death knell to a winning season or playoff hopes.

Ah I see.  A week 1 game at home, that the Panthers won.  Yes that would be '03.  But, that was against the Jaguars who had missed the playoffs the year before.  This Week 1 test is the hardest the Panthers have had since...I can't even remember when.  The Seahawks are stacked...and while I agree a close loss wouldn't sting as much as a blowout, I think that this is as close to a "must-win" game as a Week 1 game can be.  I could see a win propelling the Panthers to the playoffs.  A loss, and who knows.  Probably another 7-9 year.

Please, David Gettis.  Save us all from another mediocre season with your magic.  

#2325199 Sorenson says Gettis "Perpetually" Open in Tuesday's Camp.

Posted by hepcat on 15 August 2013 - 08:20 PM

please do. Get started.


Receivers picked between pick #17 (what would have been Carolina's 1st round pick had they not traded up for Everette Brown in 2009) and pick #48 (where Carolina picked Jimmy Clausen).


#22 - Demaryius Thomas (94 receptions, 1424 yards, 10 TDs last year)

#24 - Dez Bryant (82 receptions, 1382 yards, 12 TDs last year)

#42 - Rob Gronkowski (55 receptions, 790 yards, 11 TDs last year, in 11 games)


omitted #39 Arrelious Benn for irrelevance.  And I know Gronkowski is a TE, but I felt the need to throw him in there.


Both Thomas and Bryant's stats were better than Steve Smith's last year (73 receptions, 1174 yards, 4 TDs) so you're already wrong.  Carolina has had a chance to draft receivers better than Steve Smith.  Poor draft decision making has prevented that from happening.


Receivers picked between #33 (what would have been Carolina's 2nd round pick had they not traded up for Armanti Edwards) and #65, where Carolina selected Terrell McClain.


#58 - Torrey Smith (49 receptions, 855 yards, 8 TDs last year)

#59 - Greg Little (53 receptions, 647 yards, 4 TDs)

#64 - Randall Cobb (80 receptions, 954 yards, 8 TDs)


omitted #44 Titus Young for irrelevance.


If Steve Smith went down Carolina would easily have the worst WR corps in the league.  Don't say they haven't had the chance to do better, because they have.  Hindsight is 20/20 but when your top receiver is 34 and for over a decade they haven't been able to groom someone behind him, something is seriously wrong.  Maybe Gettleman can find someone.

If Armanti has shown improvement, that just goes to show how bad the secondary is.

#2305378 NFC south preview just happened on nfl network

Posted by hepcat on 30 July 2013 - 07:52 PM

I remember between '04-'06, the media loved the Panthers.  And what do you know, the Panthers were competitive those years.  Even in '04, after starting 1-7, they had a chance to make the playoffs in Week 17.  Sports Illustrated put the Panthers on the cover before the 2006 NFL season as Superbowl favorites.  


Winning cures all ails.  And seriously, who the fug cares what NFL Network says.  Once Cam is in the playoffs, everyone will be sucking his nuts.

#2298999 Two teams to L.A.?

Posted by hepcat on 25 July 2013 - 10:02 AM

Jacksonville makes sense.  Weak fanbase, small market, bad team.  They could move the team to LA and put them in the NFC West.  Move the St. Louis Rams to the AFC South.  Everything makes sense geographically, everyone's happy.
