#3039492 Want to see Charles Godfrey get cut in real time?

Posted by KendrickPanther on 23 October 2014 - 11:51 PM

Yeah while I respect your degree in Madden, I'm not going to put any weight in a fans analysis of coverage schemes. We are just making assumptions.




#3039450 Deandre Presley at Safety?

Posted by KendrickPanther on 23 October 2014 - 11:04 PM

I kind of feel like we should be thinking about more than just player moves. We should be looking at our schemes. These cushions we give just don't work. There has to be a better way.




#3038178 My biggest worry about Gettleman

Posted by KendrickPanther on 23 October 2014 - 04:39 AM

I know everyone is super emotional about how embarrassing our team has looked in three losses and 1 tie. But this is literally Gettleman's 2nd season. He's been in the building for 21 months. He changed the independent scouting agency last off season. You can see the light at the end of the cap tunnel. We are in first place in our division coming off a division championship. 

 

We don't know how he manages his staff. We will probably never know that. Firing a scout doesn't make news. Retraining his staff doesn't make news. But I'm sure he is working very hard to make the the Front Office better. 

 

Think of all the guys that have restructured since Gettleman got here. That was a ton of work on his part. 

 

The way the NFL is structured, you can only turnover a roster so much every season. There is only one draft a year. There is only one June 6th cut a year. There is only so much cap space to sign Free Agents and if you spend poorly you kick yourself the following off season when an even better player becomes available.

 

Maybe in the end DG doesn't get the job done but our franchise is 16-8-1 under his management. The DG freak out really comes off premature to me. 

 

I would really like to see Shula gone next off season but Gettleman's first Head Coach firing was never going to come after a 12-4 season. Who would want to work for a GM that fires a 12-4 coach? Why would Gettleman shake up the staff right now? We are winning the division. He has to proceed with the expectations we make the playoffs.

 




#3037844 Seahawks players: Russel Wilson "not black enough"

Posted by KendrickPanther on 22 October 2014 - 08:18 PM

My problem with this is their almost encouraging young Black men to not educate themselves and not live in harmony with the rest of society. In a way it comes off as an attempt to self enforce segregation. 

 

We need to get to the point where we all view ourselves as Americans and Humans and not along these racial lines. I understand that is in the far distance but this kind of thinking is a step in the wrong direction.




#3036394 Bad Hurney Contracts: Who's Left?

Posted by KendrickPanther on 21 October 2014 - 10:39 PM

One thing I keep seeing is this idea that Jonathan Stewart and Deangelo contracts can't be hampering us THAT much. Well they are, but also Jordan Gross, Jon Beason, and Steve Smith have huge cap figures for us right now. 

 

There is only one guy on our active 53 man roster with a bigger cap hit than Jon Beason. Get your head around that.

 

Here are some guys still on our books:

 

James Anderson

Sione Fua

Joe Adams

Haruki Nakamura

Tiquan Underwood

Geoff Hangartner

 

We have $22m in dead money on our cap this season thus far. That is 17% of our adjusted salary Cap. 

 

Only 66.9% of our salary cap will be on the active roster come Sunday, barring further moves.

 

We love Mike Tolbert, but he's the lowest paid running back in a running back by committee. His cap hit this season is over $3.3m. If big Mike were on the active roster today, 3 of our top 10 cap hits would be Running Backs. That is sad considering the return on the investment. 

 




#3035743 Godfrey Released

Posted by KendrickPanther on 21 October 2014 - 03:42 PM

Man just lost his job. I'm not going to celebrate it. But I do acknowledge this was the correct move.




#3033826 Our highest graded DB

Posted by KendrickPanther on 20 October 2014 - 07:11 PM

Best way to not go negative is to not play apparently.




#3032842 AJ Klein - Did you notice....

Posted by KendrickPanther on 20 October 2014 - 11:02 AM

:cam:
 

 

We have Steve Smith, Jordan Gross, and Jon Beason coming off the books next year too. That's right. We are still paying all of those guys in terms of cap space.




#3032028 The Traditional QB Still Rules the League

Posted by KendrickPanther on 19 October 2014 - 10:13 PM

Cam has been leaps and bounds better as a pocket passer this season. The Broncos, Patriots, and Colts all have better offensive personnel than us. More importantly they all have better offensive coordinators.

 

Some of the play calling and game management today was sad. Qb sneak on a 4th and long 1? How about let Cam pick a lane to run in rather than take what the offensive line gets him.




#3032000 Serious fugging question

Posted by KendrickPanther on 19 October 2014 - 10:06 PM

Yeah I thought our philosophy should have shifted in 2009. The Saints were in a tight game against the Vikings for a trip to the Super Bowl. Game goes to overtime. They got a soft PI call and were instantly in field goal range. That's like taking candy from a baby. 

 

The rule changes favor passing so much that you would have to be an idiot to build a strong defense and run the ball. When you run the football, it's nearly impossible for the defense to be penalized. When you pass it there are numerous automatic fist down penalties.

 

Goodell let the Seahawks do their thing but when Peyton Manning got drilled in the Super Bowl he had to act. "Greatness" at the QB position grows the league. Richard Sherman berating Michael Crabtree on National Television does not.

 

Throw in the billions of dollars in revenue from fantasy football. It's almost impossible to get a fantasy defense worth a damn. 




#3031975 Andrew Norwell Impresses

Posted by KendrickPanther on 19 October 2014 - 09:57 PM

You guys are kidding yourselves if you think Norwell and Foucalt are upgrades. Chandler had a brutal bust in run blocking that killed a drive. Cam kind of screwed him over on the sack. Started scrambling towards his blind side.

 

But once you get past the first three drives it's hard to blame the offensive line. We were down by 21 points and Dom Capers could send the hounds. If we get down by three touchdowns to a  3-4 defense they can be bold with the blitzing. 

 

Foucalt got some work against the reserves. Good for him but Clay Mathews and Julius Peppers are a different breed. I think Mathews wrecked him once.




#3031905 Remaining schedules for us, the Saints, and the Falcons

Posted by KendrickPanther on 19 October 2014 - 09:36 PM

It's foolish to eliminate the Bucs from contention. We are only 2.5 games ahead of them. Are they a dumpster fire? Sure, but we all are at this point.

 

I started tracking something last week. The premise is we win every division game and lose every non division game. That guarantees the Falcons and Saints +2 losses, and the Bucs+1. It guarantees us 8 wins. We are quickly approaching a threshold where sweeping the division locks us in.

 

 

3-3-1 Panthers sweep division: 8-7-1

 
2-4 Saints     10-6   best possible
 
2-5 Falcons    9-7   best possible
 
1-5 Bucs       10-6   best possible

 

Now this doesn't mean anything. We could easily lose to the Saints and Falcons twice each and be out of it. We could also split and pick off teams like the Vikings and Browns. Meanwhile the Saints, Falcons, and Bucs can hurt each others chances or lose out of division match ups. Nothing is even close to decided. 




#3031697 Cam was off today

Posted by KendrickPanther on 19 October 2014 - 08:41 PM

Because some people in this fanbase (which I highly question are fans) need to find ways to blame Cam.

 

So when you rip the offensive line or defense or coach its ok. But when somebody says something about Cam they aren't real fans. Where is the logic in that?




#3031689 Cam was off today

Posted by KendrickPanther on 19 October 2014 - 08:39 PM

It gets on my nerves how everytime Cam has the inevitable bad game the every QB has, no matter how well he played the past couple of weeks, someone gotta make a thread about how concerned they are about it.

 

There are threads about Cam after every game. There are threads about Cam every day. There are threads about Cam when does a Gatorade commercial. Are we supposed to stop making threads about Cam when he has a bad day?




#3031616 Cam was off today

Posted by KendrickPanther on 19 October 2014 - 08:20 PM

lol this thread is just like the announcers today who could only talk about how Cam looks after the defense just allowed a 3rd TD.

 

We have plenty of forum space to talk about everyone that played poorly. Defense has been getting railed all day.
