In Topic: What sort of rage is unleashed if Olsen isn't retained?

20 November 2014 - 02:54 PM

if gettleman looked you in the face and said choose one and ill resign him and let the other go, Who would you pick TD or greg?

 

Wow, that's a really tough one. Both are so important to their respective sides of the ball. TD is probably a more complete LB than Greg is a TE (can't block worth ish). Ignoring cap implications, because that can always be manipulated if both parties are serious, I think I'd go with Greg at this point. Cam can not lose another weapon and safety valve. I think Cam would leave if Greg was released before Cam was signed to a long term contract.


In Topic: Offensive Focus Next Year?

I think it's a bad idea to ever go into an NFL draft with the idea that you're gonna fill positions of need by choosing untested rookies. That's what FA is for. The draft should be used to infuse your team with new talent. Barring extreme situations, BPA is always the best approach.


In Topic: Did Cam call players meeting?

But would he go full out laying into Byron and Nate's asses for not protecting Cam, ripping them apart in front of all of their teammates? He's a vocal leader but I'm not sure he will go the full lengths necessary.

 

I don't know. He doesn't seem like a politically correct, make sure every one feels good, type of person to me.

First off Jr. prefers defensive guys and probably will again for head coach. With all the firepower in our division it is crazy not to have a strong defense and particularly the secondary.
Should we have done more for Cam this year. Absolutely because lets be real here cam is not a once in a generation guy in fact this years shows that he is effective when he has decent folks around him and he is not able to make up for obvious deficits unlike for example Wilson who has been much more effective with a crappy offensive line cam needs a good line and good Wrs and RBs to be effective. That isn't the knock that you nut hugged think it is on Cam it is just the truth. He has done well and exceeded expectations and is our franchise guy and we should build around him. Because he needs that help to be effective. And no some guys like Tom Brady for example have done a lot with a bunch of average or below players. So not every QB needs as much help as Cam does. That is one reason most people don't call him elite yet.

 

Cam is a tremendous talent. I think he's shown that his entire career including earlier this season. He's not Brady, Manning, Brees, Rodgers elite yet. But they are HOFers, first ballot HOFers. And a 4th year guy shouldn't be compared to them.

 

If you're gonna decide that he's an okay QB after one game, then you're not being fair. Especially considering how horrible the offensive line played. And don't forget the drops, tips and incomplete timing routes by his WRs. I've always called a spade a spade when it comes to Cam. Honestly didn't even want to draft him, I wanted AJ Green. But you can't deny his ability to do things that we've never seen QBs do. He's special. Does he need a dynamic supporting cast? Maybe? Does he need a competent supporting cast? Yes, he does. Monday night, he didn't have a competent supporting cast.

 

And as for Wilson. I really like him. But I don't think I'd take him over Cam. And to be fair, Wilson's oline, WRs and running backs are all-pros compared to what we have here in Carolina.


In Topic: Norwell only lineman with a positive grade from PFF

13 November 2014 - 09:52 AM

Last year he had Gross next to him who probably coached him up between plays & drives. Also, there's now more tape on him this year. Lots of reasons for a sophomore slump. That, however, still is not a good enough reason to keep him in as a starter this year. Not if they're staying with Bell. Not if they want to win.

 

I did notice that Norwell was the only lineman Gruden didn't call out by name. I'm glad it's for a better reason than Gruden forgetting his name.

 

Yeah, but it's Amini's third season. He shouldn't need to be hand held anymore. And he's actually worse than he was as a rookie and the little of him we saw last season. Maybe it's just the injury, because he was never this bad.
