#3372704 2011 NFL draft revisited, would you take JJ Watt over Cam?

Posted by Navy_football on Yesterday, 07:58 AM

And I don't think it's fair to compare stats between Luck and Newton. Totally different team philosophies. One geared towards the QB play. And another geared towards defense and ball control offense.

Lost my mother on a Saturday night last July to lung cancer. Her mother (my grandmother) passed 2 days later on a Monday morning. Hasn't been a year yet, so I'm basically still in a stage of denial.

#3362652 2015 Carolina Panthers Roster Projection

Posted by Navy_football on 11 May 2015 - 05:24 AM

Now that rookie camp is over and all the tryout players have been signed, here is how I see the Panthers roster shaking out as of today.

This is by no means set in stone, but a good starting off point for OTA's and Preseason. From here, things can shift depending on individual performances.

Quarterbacks (3)

Cam Newton
Derek Anderson
Joe Webb

I don't see the Panthers letting Webb walk this season. He is just too versatile on the offense and special teams.

Running Backs (4)

Jonathan Stewart
Fozzy Whitaker
Cameron Artis-Payne
Jordan Todman

Todman and Whitaker provide punt and kick return options that this team desperately needs.

Fullbacks (1)

Mike Tolbert

Tight Ends (4)

Greg Olsen
Ed Dickson
Brandon Williams
Richie Brockel

Offensive Line (10)

Michael Oher
Andrew Norwell
Trai Turner
Ryan Kalil
Daryl Williams
Mike Remmers
Jonathan Martin
Nate Chandler
Brian Folkerts
Amini Silatolu

Nate Chandler may have actually improved his value last year, can now backup tackle and guard.

Wide Receivers (6)

Kelvin Benjamin
Devin Funchess
Jerricho Cotchery
Tedd Ginn
Corey Brown
Jarrett Boykin

That last slot is going to be one to watch in camp. Boykin, Bersin, Hill, M. Brown all competing for one position.

Defensive Line (8)

Charles Johnson
Kony Ealy
Star Lotulelei
KK Short
Dwan Edwards
Colin Cole
Frank Alexander
Mario Addison

Linebackers (5)

Thomas Davis
Luke Kuechly
Adarius Glanton
Shaq Thompson
David Mayo

Safeties (4)

Roman Harper
Tre Boston
Colin Jones
Robert Lester

Jones will be an important piece here, as Shaq Thompson may not be ready for his large nickel role by September. Jones played it pretty well last season, and should only improve with more experience in camp and preseason.

Cornerbacks (5)

Josh Norman
Bene Benwikere
Teddy Williams
Carrington Byndom
Melvin White

I really like the Peters kid out of Clemson, could push Melvin White.

Special Teams (3)
JJ Jansen
Graham Gano
Brad Nortman

This roster was formulated with the assumption that Dave Gettleman keeps all of his draft picks on the regular roster, which he has done historically. That could change this season as the overall talent on the team increases. For instance, AJ Klein was a tough call here, but if we assume Mayo is kept he is the odd man out.

There are young guys coming in like Byrd, Peters, Wegher, Ward that have a chance to shake things up on this roster. For instance, if Lee Ward can come in and be a blocking machine in the run game and also contribute on special teams, Richie Brockel may be in trouble. If they do not break into the regular roster, the Panthers will have an even more talented practice squad this season.

What about Tillman? He should bump one of the CBs.

That got me in the feels.
Must be too much dust in my eyes.

#3201685 For what it's worth

Posted by Navy_football on 12 January 2015 - 08:36 PM

Lived in North Seattle for 2 years while stationed at Bremerton Navy Yard. Never made it to a Seahawks game, but plenty of Mariners and Supersonics (telling my age) games. Beautiful city and state, I mean absolutely gorgeous!


Always liked the SeaChickens and will pull for them the rest of the way... quietly, in my mind.


No bandwagon though. Carolina is home. And home makes you who you are.

#3196871 Cam Newton

Posted by Navy_football on 11 January 2015 - 09:43 AM

Cam is not a middle-of-the-road QB. You can not convince me of that. And yes he does need more, different weapons. And yes he does need a better play caller. But doesn't every other successful QB, sans Peyton since he basically calls his own plays.


Who is the big playmaker/deep threat on the offense? This team is more likely to get a 50 yard play from a RB as it is to get a 50 yard play from a WR. The biggest deep threat Cam has ever had was a 30+ year old 5'9" WR, and he didn't even have him this season. Name me another QB in the league in that situation right now - maybe ever.


The young man has to make 90% of his passes into tight coverage, to receivers that refuse to fight for the ball - except for KB and Olsen. Dickson is horrible. If nothing else, Brandon Williams is a stronger blocker and a tougher competitor. I would love to see him get more snaps.


I just watched Cam Newton stiff arm (to the ground) one of the hardest hitting FS in the NFL, and then throw a laser to the sideline on a deep out in tight coverage. No other QB can do that. He ain't Brady, Manning consistency yet. But to say he's an average QB is completely asinine, to put it mildly.

#3187409 Philly Brown update

Posted by Navy_football on 08 January 2015 - 04:09 PM

Regardless of who travels with the team, I'd just like to see the offense be a little more aggressive. We've lost the last 2-3 times trying to beat Seattle at their own game - defensive battle, ToP running and conservative passing. I don't like the idea of Cam trying to best RW in "magical last drives". He can't win that game. Not yet. I say throw caution to the damn wind. We're playing on house money anyway, cause we ain't even supposed to be here.

#3183556 This is the only thread you need to read

I just wanna know how a Seahawks fan has 15000 posts on a Carolina forum..


Thinking the same thing. I've been here for years and haven't even hit 1K yet.

#3180517 Here's our free agents

Posted by Navy_football on 05 January 2015 - 01:17 PM

Dickson isn't good. I would like an upgrade at te2.


I just re-watched the Cardinals game and it was as I suspected. Dickson really is not that good. He has below average ball skills - even for a TE. Brandon Williams looks much more comfortable catching the ball than Dickson. The youth movement will be complete when Swole takes Dickson's place.


On the pass that Cam overthrew him on the wheel route, Dickson slowed down coming out of his move on the defender. If he keeps running full speed, that ball hits him in the hands - probably at head level. He isn't as hungry as we need in that position. Probably 2-3 other passes that game he could have been caught if he was a real receiver.

This game could easily be 30-0 right now.

It's been a mix. Newton has definitely had some poor throws and missed reads, but his reveivers aren't exactly doing him any favors either.


True, but no QB goes 100% completion. Every QB misses a few. If all the catchable throws were caught, no one would remember the uncatchable ones.

#3166265 Is this team in position to cut CJ this off-season? ?

Posted by Navy_football on 31 December 2014 - 04:20 PM

There is a real possibility that CJ could become a cap casualty if he's not willing to take a pay cut, and Big Money doesn't come off as the type to give back money.


Also, I know many are saying Hardy is done in Carolina, but not sure I agree. I think DG would have cut him immediately if he and Ron had no intentions to negotiate with him. Hardy is an intriguing athlete, with size and strength to play inside or out as a pass rusher or run stopper, and he's been remarkably healthy his entire career. Players like that don't grow on trees. Guys like Hardy and Cam are created in a lab somewhere, and introduced into society using surrogate parents.

#3166209 A kid speaking the truth about the Falcon game.

Posted by Navy_football on 31 December 2014 - 03:53 PM

That kid knows more about football than half of The Huddle.


There are at least 100 Huddlers (likely a lot more than that). I can't think of 50 that seem to know anything about any team other than Carolina. So, I'd put that percentage up to about 75% or 80%.


We're all incredible homers. That's not such a terrible thing though.
