#2790301 DeAngelo Williams mother passes after battling breast cancer

Posted by Beast_3000 on 16 May 2014 - 06:01 PM

wow, that really sucks. D-Will and his mother is the reason the NFL celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness month. A shame that this story doesn't have a happy ending.

I was just thinking the same thing. He was the pioneer. He asked for permission if I recall and it was granted and the following years other players caught on. Then it became a league thing.

My prayers are with D-Will and his family.

#2787926 Corey "Philly" Brown a name to watch

Posted by Beast_3000 on 15 May 2014 - 08:22 AM

I think they view him as a Jordan Senn replacement.

Agreed. Allen may have a tad more upside if he can put a little weight on and retain his speed.

If that is correct it makes his pickup even more valuable considering Byers and Piggy retired. I hope Kalil plays all season since he is the only true seasoned veteran with Pro Bowl talent, but we need a backup.

Watching him in the open field gets me excited. KB along with a healthy Olsen and we will have something for Cam. I think Olsen played through a lot of ankle foot issues last year.

Avant and Cotchery will be very nice complimentary pieces too.

Man that song attached to the clip was beyond whack.

#2781803 What did Jimbo say about KB on NFLN?

Posted by Beast_3000 on 12 May 2014 - 12:10 AM

The irony is, I think Cam's way more accurate than he's usually given credit for.

I watch as many NFL games as I realistically can on the weekends (either through the redzone or Sunday ticket), and you'd be shocked how many alleged good NFL QB's sail and make bad passes on a regular basis, that are caught, so no one notices or cares.

On the contrary, Cam has had to throw into tight windows his entire career at Carolina, and couldn't afford to miss high many times. This same rule applies to under thrown balls, or when Cam's in trouble and needs his receivers to come back to the ball. Panther receivers, just weren't good at it.

Don't be surprised if Benjamin succeeds in his rookie year that Cam's completion percentage may increase 5 pts, along with his TD count, and hopefully the Panther win total?

Brady sailed passes all game against Denver in the playoffs this past year. Brady under threw Gronk against us for the winning touchdown.
Do I want Cam to improve his accuracy yes. There are quarterbacks that miss more than Cam by far. By the way I think Brady is pretty accurate as a passer.

I agree with you wholeheartedly about Cam though. He is given a bad wrap because he has had mediocre receiving talent. Give him AJ Green an accuracy would have been overlooked.

#2781797 There's no way we're carrying 5 RB's on the 53

Stewart isn't going anywhere. When healthy he is the closest the Panthers have to a pro-bowl running back. His contract says he will be here for the next two years at least so you may as well cheer him on and hope for his health this year.

A running backs role is tough. If he gives me 14 games plus post season health I am happy. We have the depth to overcome a minor injury and hiccup considering his history. I truly hope he misses no more than a game or two.

Barner was really bad last year. He really didn't deserve a roster spot. He ran hard in the preseason but had fumble-itis. When he got an opportunity late in the season he looked really bad. I think a previous poster pointed out his yards per carry were below 1.5. Ummm that stinks.

A few of you say he was developing. Well I say running backs don't get that opportunity. Alfred Morris was drafted in the sixth round and he is a pro bowler. Look at Tampa's running backs and how they have produced given the opportunity. Besides Barner isn't going to improve from 1.3 yards a carry to lightening in a bottle.

Barner will be shown the door at the end of cuts. He is to small to block and not fast enough to elude NFL defenders. The only thing that could possibly save him is lights out special team play returning the football.

#2781261 Offensive tackle - Great minds think alike?

Posted by Beast_3000 on 11 May 2014 - 06:03 PM

You're right but what about the other teams in the division? Tempa went Berserk on offense this year even though they have a defensive minded coach. Sorry to say, we're not sweeping them next year. As for the Saints, well, we all remember what happened the first game and they got much better defensively through free agency and offensively through the draft. I'm a pessimist not because we're a bad team but how much better the division got. As for ATL, they'll get Julio back and their OL also is upgraded with Matthews. Sorry to say, we might be back to being the beating drum again in the division. I think this will be the year Gettleman will learn a valuable lesson and pick up some nuances in the dealings of the league.

I feel you. I don't think we will run away with the division because of how New Orleans and Tampa approached this offseason. For some reason I feel like Atlanta will still have problems.

I am also curious how the new quarterback in Tampa will work out. Can he play as good as he did in Chicago? I think it will take some time to build the type of chemistry he had with the Bears.

You make some really good points in your post, but remember we weren't expected to do anything last year. Most analyst expected us to finish last in 2013.

New Orleans and Tampa look good on paper but we will see if those free agent additions make a difference.

#2781048 Offensive tackle - Great minds think alike?

Posted by Beast_3000 on 11 May 2014 - 03:42 PM

In other words, we're screwed.

We were 12-4 with Bell playing right tackle. He had rotating parts next to him at guard and he still played serviceable . If Cam continues to work on getting the ball out quicker and we run the ball effectively we should see some improvement.
Amini and Trai Turner are very strong run blockers there is no reason to think we will not see an improvement with our run game.
Nate Chandler is a better tackle than guard. He isn't country strong, but he foes have quick feet.

We don't see what Gettleman and the coaches see in practice so you don't know if we are screwed.

#2770013 Round 1 - Carolina Panthers select WR Kelvin Benjamin FSU

Posted by Beast_3000 on 08 May 2014 - 10:26 PM

We put that pick in so quick. Someone in our organization was excited about Benjamin

#2768800 Your reaction to us selecting *pending* in the 1st round.

Posted by Beast_3000 on 08 May 2014 - 09:12 PM

Soooooo this is what good teams do. Hmmmmm been a while since we waited around this long in the first round. I hope our Gettleman and his merry band of scouts have it together. As much as I hate waiting around I would like to be waiting around again next year and the foreseeable future.

Hoping for a pick 32 in there.

Trying to get Kraken signed? or are we saving this for Cam/Luke?


Signing Kraken long term gives us more cap room. It doesn't hurt it. The cap # for a long term contract would drop from 13.7 million for 2014 to a more respectable figure. It depends on the signing bonus and years.

#2762575 Voth talks with Jonathan Stewart

Posted by Beast_3000 on 05 May 2014 - 08:34 PM

When healthy he's a beast, no doubt Stewie causes opposing defenses lots of trouble him and DWill together causes ...

Double Trouble.

I am optimistic he will be back in top form this season. If that is the case he should take D-Will's starting spot and give the league pure hell this year.

I know it is a little wishful but he is talented enough to do it.

Ummmmm our local writers at the Panthers website and at the Observer have a long ways to go in terms of quality of work and research if the Eagles are putting out stuff like this.

Hate to be a complainer, but the research, quality and length of these videos make Person and company look like poo.

I just don't see Moses as being a lot better than the likes of Richardson from Tenessee and Richardson can probably be taken mid 3rd round or so.

I would like to trade back personally so we don't have to reach on a OT and we can get 4 quality picks in the first 3 rounds.

We can get a OT, a CB and probably 2 quality receivers by the end of round 3.

I think a team like Washington would bite on our 28th pick to avoid losing their guy at the top of the second round.
