#3284337 Could Melvin White make the transition to Safety?

Posted by Thorrez on 14 March 2015 - 02:09 PM

Yes and he should, been saying it for a while. He actually played it in college as a junior at ULL and was All-Sun Belt honorable. Think he has the ability to play either safety spot to push Tre B. and Roman Harper for playing time.


He lacks the closing speed for fs. That's why he struggles covering deep.

He would be awesome in a zone cover rolled to his side as he is very physical. The only problem is that that requires a shut down guy on the other side. Something we do not have.

Thinking about it, his skillset should work well in the red zone.


#3273218 (In your opinion) Top 5 needs for the Panthers and who would you like to fill...

Posted by Thorrez on 10 March 2015 - 10:31 AM

1 - Kicker - Ryan Succop
2 - Long Snapper - Mike Leach
3 - Relief Pitcher - Andrew Miller
4 - Goalie - Martin Brodeur
5 - Right Wing - Alfredsson, Daniel

Wait...what was the question again?

Your list is invalid














Alfredsson is retired :)


#3253773 So how do we restructure/extend Charles Johnson?

Posted by Thorrez on 25 February 2015 - 09:01 AM

Is his production worth 20 mil?

Why did we let go of Dwill?


That's not the issue.

1. Do we need him?
2. Can we replace him with what is saved?

Deangelo 1. No.
Johnson 1. Yes, 2. No

Case closed.


#3199818 So Cap numbers and possible cuts

Posted by Thorrez on 12 January 2015 - 05:29 AM

Kalil is gone unless he takes a huge pay cut.

He is set to count over $10M in both 15 and 16.

If we June 1st him we will have about $5M extra power year to sign his replacement.

Finding a replacement FA for $2M should not be to hard, that leaves $3M extra per year to spend elsewhere (read replace bell). If we use a 4th rounder the extra jumps a million.

While Kalil is good and will be missed, the reason centers are not payed premium (unless hurney is involved of course) is that the step down to just a dud is not that big.


#3161771 Adarius Glanton

Posted by Thorrez on 29 December 2014 - 11:24 AM

He looks to have the speed and quickness to be a decent kind of a hybrid LB/NB if the offense no-huddle to stop us from substitute.

 

My concern is that he might be undersized against a power running team (not that there really are any of those at the moment...).




#3161244 Rise Up?

Posted by Thorrez on 29 December 2014 - 04:39 AM

Best comment from the commentator yesterday: "Imagine if hardy was playing, the Falcons would be on negative yardage"


#3150425 Our game just got bumped to 4:25

Posted by Thorrez on 23 December 2014 - 05:30 AM

That's a 10:25 pm start in Europe, well at least I have Monday off...


#3147542 Jim-meh is pissed

Posted by Thorrez on 21 December 2014 - 05:55 PM

Clausen is loser. Been one his whole life.


I am sure he agrees. Except when he checks his bank, looks at his wife or when he thinks about the fact that he just played himself into a long career as a solid nfl backup.

Other than that, you are probably right.


#3128255 Cam was hit from the back according to eyewitness - Video

Posted by Thorrez on 10 December 2014 - 07:23 AM

Cam was working on his day off, as usual, on his way to work. What a thug who doesn't take the job of being an NFL QB seriously. ~SARCASM


I agree! Doesn't he has some basketball game to attend like a real qb!


#3116603 Mike Remmers - Perfect Pass Blocking Grade

Posted by Thorrez on 03 December 2014 - 04:17 AM

The question becomes, will he become a better starter at RT than Bell was? If so, then we only need a LT for next year and it allows us more options in the draft. Cooper or Collins 1st then BPA and maybe an OT in rounds 2-4. Or we could potentially ignore OT early in the draft and sign the best FA with Hardy's money. Norwell and Turner can be our guards and Kalil is set for now and we could have a solid line, and KB and Cooper starting and Philly as the #3 then we could turn our focus to defense with the other money we have left and in other rounds of the draft and we get a competent offensive coaching staff whether it be HC or OC or both, boom Super Bowl.


What Hardy money? We already have $125M of next year cap acounted for, and that is before the draft class is signed and without Hardy costing a dime.


#3104733 Pie for all

Posted by Thorrez on 25 November 2014 - 01:06 PM

I would like to give some pie to Steve Smith jr and the rest of the Ravens!!


Save a slice for Barnidge as he had the catch that set up the Browns game winning field goal :D


#3083632 How good is a 5 - 2 Defense?

Posted by Thorrez on 12 November 2014 - 09:07 AM

11-0 fg block formation every play. It works sometimes in madden


Madden 98 on the original PS.
Pick Kragen as your active player (between snapper and left guard).
Pump X and forward at the snap.
Worked EVERY time.


#3083500 How good is a 5 - 2 Defense?

Posted by Thorrez on 12 November 2014 - 06:24 AM

Twins right, motion the hb to the left. Ealy is not athletic enough to follow so Luke or TD has to. Run up the gut and read the blocks and you are a cut behind of good block away from a big gain. Or pick on harper and Cason/white trying to cover the twins.


#3034962 We SHOULD win the NFC South

Posted by Thorrez on 21 October 2014 - 11:09 AM

Seattle has the worst ever record making the play off at 7-9. So question is, can we make it with 6-9-1 :-)


#3034208 Colin Jones Ran a 4.3? Huh?

Posted by Thorrez on 21 October 2014 - 01:15 AM

I love Jones's speed but the fact is he missed a lot of tackles in the preseason. Being a gunner is your first priority is to cut off the angles before the returner picks up speed, if you make the tackles or someone else because the extra time you staled the returner is secondary.

At safety the runner already has full speed coming towards you so gunner skills does not have to translate into good safety tackling skills.
