In Topic: Our O line is good enough right?

29 July 2014 - 09:50 PM

Ya know, a little cautious optimism in this area is not so big a stretch as some folks think.

If Trai Turner lives up to the first impressions he's given, the interior line could be the best it's been in a while, and that's a pretty big deal.

Solid protection inside gives the quarterback the ability to 'step up' in the pocket. That makes it easier for the tackles to handle speed rushers, especially given that type of pass rusher has a natural tendency to overrun targets sometimes anyway. Mind you, they still have to be able to stand their ground with power rushers, but these days most of the league's DEs are speed rushers.

Add in besides the optimism for the interior line, Nate Chandler looks like he might be a decent LT. And yes, Bell could be improved. It's been known to happen.

Could they turn out awful? Sure. But it's not the slam dunk people make it out to be.

Agreed. I read a tweet today that said Dwan Edwards beat Trai Turner bad today with a swim move. I immediately thought to my self that isn't a bad thing...... I want to hear the good with the bad.... The comments about Trai have mostly been good things. The young fellow needs to learn from the vets in practice so he will be ready when he faces real competition. I have a feeling he will be really good. I just don't know how long it will take.

In Topic: Cams ankle is not right!

27 July 2014 - 01:18 PM

I haven't had surgery on my ankle, but I did once suffer a 3rd degree ankle sprain (complete tear of the ligaments in the ankle), my foot swole up like a brontosaurus, and I didn't walk for a month. Once I was cleared to start running and playing again, my ankle burned for probably another two months after I was "healed" and would still swell after physical activity.

Just curious how long did it take you to feel normal again.

I'm sitting here watching NFLN and they're interviewing Luck... holy hell is that one lame weird awkward dude in an interview. Just comes off as he's trying way too hard to force the whole 'gosh golly gee shucks' image.

That's one part of Cam I think we take for granted. He's just a cool dude in general.

Yep we will see 5 years from now who they say is the quarterback of the future. I said it before Luck doesn't have the resume that Cam has. I really like both quarterbacks I just think our quarterback will be the one to bring us multiple championships.

In Topic: The truth is Steve Smith is probably better right now, than anyone on our roster

Ace don't forget you are talking about a man that thrives and lives off motivation from others who say he can't.
While he was no slouch last year he definitely wasn't all-pro. I have moved on and wish him well. It can seriously be debated if he would be doing those type of things if he were still here. It can also be debated if he would be helping any of of our young receivers still here. Bottom line is we can just hope for the best this year and hope the new guys step up.

In Topic: USA Today: Five reasons to believe in the Carolina Panthers

I really hate the faith put in Ron Rivera. People think he changed his philosophy or something which frankly isn't true. Someone just showed him some relative value chart of going for it on 4th, or going for TDs deep in opposing territories, etc. These things aren't daring or innovative; they're logical.

And even if he's changed on 3-4 plays a game, he's still letting shula call the most horseshit offense in the NFL for the rest of them.

I hope they implode this year and they bring in Gus Malzahn.

Malzahn for offensive coordinator in the NFL ??? That heavy read option would not work here. I get your point somewhat but you went way to the left. He would have some innovative ideas but some of those same innovative thoughts would not translate due to the speed of the game and NFL player discipline to gaps.
