#2869627 Brenton Bersin?

Posted by Gallagher on Yesterday, 07:40 PM

I'm skeptical just because he's a hometown kid, so maybe there's some favoritism going on. If he is the real deal though, I'm all for it. The dude has the build of a AJ Green or Jerome Simpson, tall and lanky.


Edit: Does he remind anyone else of Sunshine from Remember the Titans with that hair?

Beautiful photo. So glad this guy is our QB.

Hope this means Denicos Allen has a better chance of making the roster. I'm pulling for that guy.

Kelvin does a good Lil Jon.

That's awesome. I'd be stoked to get tackled by Luke.

#2856178 Cam Newton works with other Panthers on chemistry

Posted by Gallagher on 17 July 2014 - 09:16 PM

Pretty concerning that Cam is still getting sharp pains in the ankle on some push offs. Isn't this about the time he was supposed to be 100%? It's probably nothing to be worried about, but man oh man do I hope he's completely pain free soon.

#2855609 Silva's Pre-Camp Team Rankings (Panthers: 17th)

Posted by Gallagher on 17 July 2014 - 02:24 PM

Those guys were 1 year contract players. It's not like they were together for years and had time to gel.

True, but that doesn't take away from the fact that the group we had last year was something special. I'm somewhat skeptical of Gettleman's method of bringing in these mercenary guys on one year deals. I get that it has been necessary due to our cap, but it's definitely not ideal.

That being said, I believe our roster is still on of the best in the league, and in time Cason and Decoud are going to look like absolute free agency steals. I think that there are going to be times though, when we find ourselves deeply missing the speed of guys like Ginn and Mitchell.

Looking for Panther's gear? Look no further.

The Defense needs to call Matt Ryan and Drew Brees to the stand. They would let everyone know that if that man wanted to hurt you and you didn't have a helmet/pads on, you would be out cold, not throwing shoes.

#2851317 Graham signs long term deal

Posted by Gallagher on 15 July 2014 - 10:38 AM

This is great news for the Panthers. Between this contract, the one they gave the mole, and how they somehow were able to sign Byrd this off season, they are going to be in cap hell for a while. 


Years down the road, while we're inking guys like Lotulelei, Kuechly and Benjamin to long term deals, the Aints might have to let guys like Cam Jordan, Vacarro and Stills walk. I look at this as another step towards those swamp rats becoming the bottom dwellers of the South they once were.

#2846232 Playoff stats of our new pass catchers

Posted by Gallagher on 11 July 2014 - 11:17 AM

Can we get Brandon LaFail's?


Four catches for 34 yards with a long of 13, in the San Fran game. Also one rush for 6 yards. Avant or Cotchery should easily be able to replace numbers like that. 


More troubling though is that Ginn went over 100 yards in that game, and in a lot of spots looked like our best receiver late last season. I hope Underwood is able to replicate what Ginn brought.

#2846210 Playoff stats of our new pass catchers

Posted by Gallagher on 11 July 2014 - 10:49 AM

So I'm sure one of the firsts things you all, like me, did when we signed new players this offseason was check out their nfl.com player page, to see what kind of numbers guys like Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant, Tiquan Underwood, and Ed Dickson put up over their careers. I got to thinking though that one thing these pages didn't show was playoff stats. Given that we'll hopefully be headed back to the playoffs, and that how players play in big games says a lot about them, I was curious to see how our new guys did in the post season. Here's what I found.


Jerricho Cotchery


2011 Wildcard Steelers @ Broncos L: Rec-1 Yds-31 TDs-1 Lng-31 


2010 Wildcard Jets @ Colts W:  Rec-2 Yds-17 TDs-0 Lng-10


2010 Divisional Jets @ Chargers W: Rec-3 Yds-25 TDs-0 Lng-15


2010 AFCCG Jets @ Steelers L: Rec-5 Yds-33 TDs-1 Lng-14


2009 Wildcard Jets @ Bengals W: Rec-6 Yds-67 TDs-0 Lng-18


2009 Divisional Jets @ Chargers W: Rec-3 Yds-25 Tds-0 Lng-15


2009 AFCCG Jets @ Colts L: Rec-5 Yds-102 TDs-0 Lng-45


2006 Wildcard Jets @ Patriots L: Rec-4 Yds-100 TDs-1 Lng-77 Rushing Att-2 Yds-17 (w/ Pennington)


Jason Avant


2013 Wildcard Saints @ Eagles L: Rec-5 Yds-21 TDs-0 Lng-6 (w/ Foles)


2010 Wildcard Packers @ Eagles L: Rec-7 Yds-93 TDs-1 Lng-24 (w/ Vick)


2009 Wildcard Eagles @ Cowboys L: Rec-2 Yds-32 TDs-0 Lng-20 (w/ McNabb)


2008 Wildcard Eagles @ Vikings W:  Rec-5 Yds-47 TDs-0 Lng-14


2008 Divisional Eagles @ Giants W: Rec-4 Yds-43 TDs-0 Lng-21


2008 NFCCG Eagles @ Cardinals L: Rec-2 Yds-23 TDs-0 Lng-14


Tiquan Underwood


Was on the Pats for their 2011 playoff run. Didn't catch a pass in the divisional or AFCC games. Was famously cut the day day before the Superbowl, apparently so the Giants couldn't sign him for playbook info. Neither the Jags nor the Bucs made the playoffs while he was there.


Ed Dickson


2012 Wildcard Colts @ Ravens W: Rec-1 Yds-24 TDs-0 Lng-24


2012 Divisional Ravens @ Broncos W:  Rec-3 Yds-29 TDs-0 Lng-14


2012 AFCCG Ravens @ Patriots W: Rec-0


2012 Superbowl Ravens vs 49ers W: Rec-2 Yds-37 TDs-0 Lng-23


2011 Divisional Texans @ Ravens W: Rec-1 Yds-14 TDs-0 Lng-14


2011 AFCCG Ravens @ Patriots L: Rec-2 Yds-23 TDs-0 Lng-16


2010 Wildcard Ravens @ Chiefs W: Rec-1 Yds-2 TDs-0 Lng-2


2010 Divisonal Ravens @ Steelers L: Rec-0



Some thoughts:


  • Cotchery looked like a #1 6-7 years ago with Pennington. Struggled as part of an anemic offense with Sanchez in 2009 and 2010. Stat line against the Broncos reaffirms that he can be a red zone target for us. 
  • Just from this snapshot you can see why Avant wasn't happy in Chip Kelly's system. Five catches for 21 yards and a long of 6 seems like he was under used when previous years' playoff performances show that he can catch balls further down the field. Biggest thing that stands out from these stats is just how consistent Avant has been, even in the playoffs
  • Ed Dickson's playoff numbers look acceptable if unexciting for a TE2. Kind of worrisome how he disappeared for a few games, but that could be that he wasn't targeted or didn't take advantage of the targets he got. Of note is that his best playoff game was the biggest in the Super Bowl. Still rooting for B Williams to beat him out, but either way I hope we use more two TE sets this season.

So people can bitch about our WR core all they want, but these numbers show that our new skill position players (save Tiquan who hasn't had the opportunity) have gotten it done in postseason over the years. Hell, even our rookie, KB played and excelled in the National Championship game. All in all, between Benjamin, Olsen, and solid role players and possession receivers around them, I think we're set up not only to get to the playoffs again, but win games in them.

#2845785 Do you think we can get the number one seed.this year?

Posted by Gallagher on 10 July 2014 - 10:56 PM

Definitely. I see Seattle coming down to earth and losing many games on the road, Kaep getting exposed as mediocre in San Fran and relegating them to the wild card hunt, and New Orleans realizing that Brees to Graham is not nearly as effective when the other half of their offense is gone in Darren Sproles.
