#3331198 The NFL Position of LT

Posted by KendrickPanther on 22 April 2015 - 10:04 PM

Your argument is every team in college football has a left tackle. Yes, that is true. But how many of them deal with premier pass rushers with elite athleticism and technique? It's a little different blocking 240lb defensive ends with one move. 


Also the 3-4 defense is prominent in the NFL and that puts an added layer of stress on the tackle position. 


I think too much emphasis is being put on the Left Tackle. It's become a buzz thing, "how many franchise left tackles are there in this class". With changes to rules and offense Right Tackle is very important too, maybe slightly less but only slightly. 


Protecting the blindside was all about not having Lawrence Taylor end your QBs career. Now there are rules in place that protect QBs from those viscous hits like the one Greg Hardy hit Carson Palmer with a few years ago. 


#3323404 Ricky Proehl... WR coaching genius or overrated?

Thebigcat, why are you always making these threads with a negative slant. It's the off season, time to be positive.

#3317789 Update: Charles Tillman signed by Panthers (official)

Posted by KendrickPanther on 10 April 2015 - 07:12 AM

I think a lot of you guys are not aware of how good Tillman is.


Everybody is aware how good he was. Nobody is aware how good he is.

I wonder if the guy that fuged with Luke got canned. Nobody fugs with Luke.

#3315368 Sorenson analyzes Gettleman

Posted by KendrickPanther on 08 April 2015 - 03:36 AM

How is Olsen the answer to our number 2 receiver hole? He's the answer at TE, not receiver number 2. That makes zero sense. That position was a problem last year, having Olsen again doesn't change anything for said position.


When people say Olsen can be our number 2 reciever they mean he can be our second option in the passing game. Get the second most targets/yardage. Olsen had some really unproductive games last year when he was forced to be David Foucalt's on field coach. He probably could have had 1200 yards if he wasn't forced to pass protect so much. 


Obviously WR 2 is still a concern but if we draft a running back and run well, that number 2 won't get many targets anyways. 

#3315367 Sorenson analyzes Gettleman

Posted by KendrickPanther on 08 April 2015 - 03:32 AM

The one thing encouraging about Gettleman is he doesn't come off as a fool. When he signs a crap player he knows and we know they are a crap player. He's just trying to manage the cap. We don't see Gettleman defending the Artmanti Edwards and Eric Sheltons right up until the day he cuts them. Hurney famously fell for buzz players like Clausen, Jarret, Everette Brown, and Armanti Edwards. Gettleman sees those guys on the board, gets a call from the Patriots, and says "What? Do you think I have brain damage?". 

#3311896 Former Bucs GM: We Spied On Justin Blackmon's Favorite Bar For A Week

Posted by KendrickPanther on 04 April 2015 - 12:47 PM

I really think it's gotten to the point of absurdity when we call 20-25 year olds "just kids". The football coaches started this crap to generate sympathy when their players got in trouble. Everyone goes along with it because they have skeletons/guilt from their youth. 


20-25 years old is not "just a kid". We've sent teenagers to fight in wars and now we are calling 6-5 250lb adults "kids".

#3306250 Per league sources, NFL Draft has 16-19 top players; "20th pick same as 5...

Posted by KendrickPanther on 31 March 2015 - 03:58 AM

When people say this is "weak draft" or that is a "strong draft". No one can make claims like that with facts to support it. 
2009 in retrospect is one of the worst draft classes in history. 
Four of the top 5 picks were clear busts. Only Mathew Stafford could be called a Super Star in the top 10. 
USA Today had headlines like these: Hard to find a flaw' in Aaron Curry; is he draft's safest pick?


But almost everyone including the Panthers bombed. 


The Eagles however drafted Jeremy Maclin and Lesean McCoy. Lesean McCoy was not a consensus "Top 8 or 9 pick". But he's had some terrific years. 


So when some scout or draft guy says "we have 40 guys that are all the same". No their not. The good front offices will draft the Lesean McCoys and the bad front offices will trade up for the Everette Browns. 

#3305877 A Message From Kony Ealy

Posted by KendrickPanther on 30 March 2015 - 05:14 PM

Ealy got beat down by just about everyone in camp and the fans got down on him. Maybe that happens more often than we think, it is the NFL. But Ealy kept working and really showed his talent in the second half of the season.

#3305816 on paper, our new RB Jordan Todman is an upgrade over Fozzy

Posted by KendrickPanther on 30 March 2015 - 04:27 PM

I doubt this guy would get Fozzy cut. Fozzy is on a 2 year deal. Why sign Fozzy for 2 years and replace him a few weeks later?


I do think we are loading the stables because one or more of these running backs will go down. Todman looks like a legit return man and special teams player. It feels like we are filling out or roster with more veterans this year. Feels like there won't be as much room for undrafted long shots. 

#3303382 Panthers checking out more OL Depth

Posted by KendrickPanther on 28 March 2015 - 08:26 AM

Sounds like Gettlemen is going to throw several players at the wall and hope a few stick.

I think that is an apt description. Still, last year we lamented the lack of "effort" to bring in lineman. Bell and Chandler were the clear favorites from March to September. So I welcome this approach.

#3302333 Panthers claim OT Jonathan Martin

If you are a tough guy coming in this thread to tell everyone Jonathan is a whimp and a sissy, go look in a mirror. Are you really that tough?

#3302329 Panthers claim OT Jonathan Martin

Posted by KendrickPanther on 27 March 2015 - 03:26 PM

He cannot be softer than Foucalt. This is a smart move. We have the worst tackles in the league and this guy has talent. Rookie contract. Why not?
