#3298173 WalterFootball's Mock for the Panthers: March 24, 2015

Posted by ctrcat on Yesterday, 12:02 AM

I didn't say we aren't going to draft an OT at all I just don't think we do it with our first pick. Maybe in the 2nd if there is a guy there but I wouldn't be surprised to see us go pass rusher/wr or Db with our first 2 picks. Just my opinion though.


10-4. The only thing more insane than not taking an OT high would be not trusting GMan. But I'd sleep much better if I know it's our top choice and not someone's leftovers at that position. I was iffy on Peat in the top 10 last fall because IMO a top 10 OT usually needs to project as a LEFT tackle, but I'm more than fine at 25 with a projected right tackle.

Here's really hoping we lock Cam up sooner rather than later.


#3296136 Brazil considered for 2017 Pro Bowl

Posted by ctrcat on 23 March 2015 - 04:15 PM

So much sex trafficking there the players will have a blast!


The fact, no myth, is that the average Brazilian woman is no more, if not much less, promiscuous than the average American woman. There is a stereotype because they are more beautiful (ie 5 of the world's top 8 supermodels are from Brazil), they wear less (90% of the population lives within 100 miles of the beach and it's beach weather all year), and they're more emotional (which can be AWESOME and/or a pain in the @$$).


#3294835 From Bridgewater to Newton...but...

Posted by ctrcat on 22 March 2015 - 04:28 PM

Bridgewater is a better QB than Cam. Word on the street is the ball doesn't hit the ground at Vikings practices. Cam need to show more consistency. If Cam could complete all the easy passes he would be a QB god. Unfortunately he misses way too many wide open throws.


You have GOT to be kidding me.

There's a reason he fell down the draft last year like a slippy slide, and it took the same fool that we've taken advantage of, the same FOOL that took Christian Ponder, Rick Spielman, to trade back up and take him. Everything about Teddy as a football player is inferior to Cam. What a joke!


#3294530 Panthers To Hold Private Workout With MSU CB Trae Waynes

Posted by ctrcat on 22 March 2015 - 12:36 PM

I love preparing for anything but hard to imagine ANY way he's available. I get that CB's in the top 10 are usually an unwise investment but 25 is a looong way down the board for him. If he were there he'd be one player I'd consider taking over any WR or OT.

Dats what I'm talking about. And OT in the 1st.

Disagree about rather having Crabtree. Would rather have Jennings.


#3293093 The genius that is the Gettleman 2014 draft

Posted by ctrcat on 21 March 2015 - 12:18 AM

don't see the genius, first few rounds were ok but he really messed up later rounds. Horrible trade for Bene , could have gotten the same picks and not given up a 7th. The best pick was Turner as KB was a no brainer . Ealy was a value pick but would much rather have Jarvis Landry from your list. The Boston pick was a big reach where Bene would not have been so much a reach at 4 or could have gone with De Anthony Thomas at 4 and still get Bene at our original 5 spot. could have gotten Boston in 6th.


Horrible trade for a guy in the 5th that'd be 21 overall in a redraft according to this? http://www.si.com/nf...evicetype=phone

Yeah ok.


#3293086 The genius that is the Gettleman 2014 draft

Posted by ctrcat on 21 March 2015 - 12:09 AM

Good work. The only pick I think is even within the realm of question is Ealy to be swapped out with Jarvis Landry. If Ealy turns into a stud though, obviously it will have worked out for the best. I slammed my fist on the table during the draft when Desir was taken the pick before us, heh.


Both Landry and Ealy were PFWA all rookie teamers, but only Kony was SI all rookie team, and plays a much tougher position to fill. Gimme Kony and it's not close.


#3293052 The genius that is the Gettleman 2014 draft

Posted by ctrcat on 20 March 2015 - 11:22 PM

Architect of the greatest dynasty of the salary cap era which will unfold before everyone's very eyes over the next decade+.

Trading for the Vikings 5th to get Bene after the Vikings had just paid Captain (Bwaha!) and then take two CBs in the draft after Bene no one will ever hear about, is worse than what Hardy allegedly did to Ms Holder. Smooth operator nipple shorts.


#3292885 The Case Against Drafting a Tackle in the 1st or 2nd Round

Posted by ctrcat on 20 March 2015 - 07:27 PM

We don't need a stuf tackle to come in right away and perform. Tackles rarley do that anyways. What we NEED is to start taking tackles with talent who we think we can couch to be a solid player (better than Bell). We SHOULD have been doing this the past 3-4 years. If one fails so be it, find another or maybe FA will yield something, but the effort has to be there. It doesn't cost hardly any cap to draft someone in rounds 3-5 and tray them out on the team. I am still baffled by this front offices complete disregard for the poistiion for those 3-4 years. They knew Gross was leaving...yet nothin as done.

 

Tackles take time to perform even as a solid player on an oline, including last years' draft...the huddle needs to stop expecting any one, period, to come in and do well. Take any tackle with upside and try to develop him, had we started this process 3-4 years ago who knows what we would have but I bet we wouldn't have gone a season with Bell at LT and Chandler at RT....I mean good lord.

 

Same used to be said of QBs, DTs, and WRs, but we debunked those theories and/or bucked the long term trend.  Hopefully it's not too much to ask one more time at OT, as long we we take who we like at #25 or even move up within reason to get him (above the Bengals who may take OT @21 for example). 




#3292850 The Case Against Drafting a Tackle in the 1st or 2nd Round

Posted by ctrcat on 20 March 2015 - 06:42 PM

Disagree, hope you're wrong.  Humphries-hometown kid played in the SEC, Collins-battle tested in SEC, Flowers-monster from the U who put up 37 on the bench, or Peat-sequoia trees for legs who like Humprhies has been a blue chipper since high school, are all acceptable.  How can every other team (correct me if I'm wrong) have a former first or second rounder at RT or LT and we don't and we expect to protect our franchise???




#3291367 Alan "Blue Balls" Ball leaves Panther offer on table

Posted by ctrcat on 19 March 2015 - 06:39 PM

Good point, I think I'm Over playing that Kony will come into his own this year but he is prbly still a year or two away, but here's to hoping better corner play will give the Dline more of an opportunity

 

3 sacks in his last 3 games.  I'll take a sack a game in 2015.  That'll work.




#3291156 Alan "Blue Balls" Ball leaves Panther offer on table

Posted by ctrcat on 19 March 2015 - 03:09 PM

Bene got burned deep by Seattle's receiver in the playoffs (I believe it was Kearse) because he didn't have the speed to keep up with him. He played like an elite nickel corner last year. He was solid on the outside (not nearly as good as Norman was) but not as good as he was at nickel. I think this signing is just to allow us to put Bene in the slot when we're in nickel packages and have Ball line up outside across from Norman. Would be an upgrade from Norman, Bene outside, and Colin Jones in the slot. I anticipate Norman and Bene will be the guys out there when we've got 3 backers.


Not sure what else Bene could do. Could have been PI on either side, but just a great and/or lucky one handed catch and play.

Luckiest man in the business. Lucks into Jim Kelly because the USFL folded and lucks into the #1 pick/Peyton Manning. These lottery tickets have given he and his family every reason to be happy and gay and for some reason cause for some to give credence to what he says. He's a bitter old fool.
