#3258739 Let's talk Kony Ealy

Posted by iamhubby1 on 01 March 2015 - 04:26 PM

When it comes to Gman. If he sees a talent that can make us better, he will grab him. So...if we take a DE, I would expect him to be a talented kid. If he doesn't draft a DE, I would think he didn't find one he liked.

Personally, I would prefer we skip a year on the D-line. Spend more picks on the Offensive side of the ball. Maybe a stud Safety if Gman sees one. Otherwise, IMO, we need Offensive talent more so than adding to an already crowded D-line.

That said. Gman will draft as close to BPA as he can. So who knows what we wind up with.

#3255371 I'm not so sure Carolina drafts a running back at all.

You gotta admit, if there is ONE thing the Huddle knows. It's RBs. The problem is, no two thoughts are the same. By the time you finish a thread, you are more confused than when you started.

Or is that just me?

RBs are a dime a dozen, you don't need to take one early.

If you are going to take one, you should get a good one early.

This year's class is deep, we can get a UDFA and still upgrade.

But Fozzy looked good once our line straightened out, he will be fine.

Fozzy is too raw, we need to add someone to push him.

Stewy can't stay healthy, we need to add a top shelf guy.

But the draft is crazy deep, we don't need to use a high pick, just get one later.

Reaves is a bust, or is he?

So my determination is thus. We need a thread to straighten out the mess this thread has produced.

#3254724 Panthers interested in bringing back Ted Ginn

Posted by iamhubby1 on 25 February 2015 - 09:42 PM

There's one pass in particular that I remember that he had beaten his man and was 2-3 yards ahead of him on a fly pattern and he just blatantly flat-out dropped it.
I'm pretty sure that wasn't a potential 500 yard play though.

I remember a play when our season was on the line. 4th and 19, and Teddy snags a deep cross for 25.
He will never be confused with an elite WR. But his year here proved he could be productive as a WR. Throw in his return ability. And he is someone that can help us win games.

I thought that was what we were going for? That winning games thing.

#3247164 Panthers met with Texas A&M OT Cedric Ogbuehi

Posted by iamhubby1 on 19 February 2015 - 11:02 PM

I can't explain it. I'm just giving an example of a guy who had a serious injury DURING the college season who was projected a top 100 pick that went undrafted. Simply a commentary on the unpredictable nature of the draft compounded by the enigmas that are serious injuries.

On top of that...Hurst ended up being a starter for the Ravens at RT I believe. I don't really know what ended up happening with Thomas. Im not hating on Ogbuehi...in fact his injury could be another Lotulelei "heart defect" that causes him to drop. Not by a few picks but by a few rounds.

Gman is not in the business of taking chances. He wants players that can/will contribute immediately. Even in the later rounds.

I truly believe he has the instincts to round out his roster.

For the first time since Polian left, we have a smart football guy in charge. Anybody with a ounce of sense will just love that thought.

If you have seen nothing in the last two years. I can't help you. If you have seen the direction we are headed. Welcome to the party.

Because every Draft pick rounds 1-5 is an instant contributor on every playoff team except ours.....
For fugs sake some of you people have ridiculously unrealistic expectations.

It's not that folks have unrealistic thoughts. It's that fans want the best. Panther fans have been waiting years for some semblance of success. It is just now starting to rear its head. So their angst is elevated.

Gman gots this. It has been almost 15 years since we had a football smart guy in charge. Now that we do, some folks are reticent to bow to his will. Another year or two of success will change everyone's mind.

Until then. We just have to wade through all the " But, I want a winner now" threads.

#3247143 DGB Considered "Best WR to Come Out since Calvin Johnson."

Posted by iamhubby1 on 19 February 2015 - 10:38 PM

OK, I know I'm late on this. However...I am usually late anyway. Which is why I am never going to be a mod. But...

The same reason we are not taking a rehabilitating Tackle early, is the same reason we won't take DGB. We need players that can contribute immediately. We are not yet in the position to wait on a player to come around for a year or so.

Side issues aside, it is just that simple. If we thought he could play, he may be in play for us. If we think he needs time, or has to learn, he is not of use to us.

After the 4th round, anyone is game. But, in the first three rounds, we need players. DGB is not a starter. So he is not on our board until the later rounds. Maybe in a year or two we can take a player like him. Just not at this time. We are just not in the position to wait on a player yet.

Sorry if I am the bearer of bad news. Or realistic news. Cuz the kid is awesome. Just too raw for our needs.

#3245109 Time to cut DeAngelo Williams.

Posted by iamhubby1 on 17 February 2015 - 11:33 PM

Stewart looked strong all year....he got more touches later

Good choice of words. Stewy may have looked strong at the beginning of the year. But production was not happening behind our line most of the year. And he got more touches because DWill was injured.

You watched the games. Our running game was abysmal for most of the year. Trying to blame that on DWill is a weak argument.

Yes, Cam, Stewart, Fozzy, Tolbert, drafted RB......isn't a bad rush attack.

Not sure the fixation with a 32 yr old RB is

Some of us want Cam to run less. We also don't know enough about Fozzy to be all agog over him. So yeah, a running corp with a drafted RB over DWill, is scary to some of us. You have to be really optimistic to think that Stewy and a couple other guys will get it done.

If something were to happen to Stewy, again. I would rather have DWill than some rookie, and a very unknown Fozzy.

If DWill is around next year, I will be happy. If he is gone, I ain't gonna be mad. I am going to be worried. I know what I am going to get with DWill, not so much from anyone else.

#3245070 Time to cut DeAngelo Williams.

Posted by iamhubby1 on 17 February 2015 - 10:24 PM

First off, let's not forget that NO ONE ran well behind our line til the last 5 games. So let's not blame DWill for not shining. Cuz he looked good at the end of the year behind the same line Stewy was using to look good.

Second. If he takes a big ol' pay cut, he will probably be here next year. If he doesn't take a pay cut, he probably won't be here next year. It really is just that simple.

Lastly. Funny ha ha how CRA disappears, but start a DWill thread and low and behold.

It may only be the middle of February. But growl and kk are in mid-season form.

#3236750 Report: Panthers Not Expected To Bring Back Hardy

Posted by iamhubby1 on 10 February 2015 - 01:31 AM

You do realize we had a draft last year, right? I ask because I notice you avoided the topic.

Had one the year before that too. Both drafts went, ya know, rather well, especially this past one. Signed some solid undrafteds too.

Had a 12-4 season in Gettleman's first season as GM after some good free agent signings on top of that aforementioned good draft.year and won the division.

Won it again this year after going on a really solid late season run, largely thanks to rookies that were picked by....guess who?

This has, in fact, been arguably the most successful two year period the franchise has had.

Oh, but he cut Steve Smith so I guess none of it counts :lol:

Sorry Scotty, you cannot argue against "Yeah but".

Gman has drafted well. Yeah but, he didn't draft such and such.

No cap space. Yeah but, he should have gotten better players.

We made the Playoffs two years in a row. Yeah but, one was because we sucked less than everyone else.

No matter what transpires, there will always be an opportunity for a "Yeah but".

#3234859 Fans have spoken time and time again, winning is ALL that matters. Why cant o...

Posted by iamhubby1 on 08 February 2015 - 05:27 PM

doing it the right way has netted the Panthers 0 championships and the Patriots, in contrast, 4.

So you are saying if we want to win Championships, we have to stretch the rules like the Pats? I guess if you can live with yourself, go for it. Me? Cheating, or stretching the rules is for folks with questionable ethics.

Also, many think that it should be Panthers 1 Pats 3. That they beat us because they cheated. So the team you want to emulate, beat the team you root for, because they stretched the rules.

There are more teams without a Championship than teams with one. So we are not the only team searching for that magic formula to get us that elusive win. Maybe more teams should be willing to do "Whatever" is necessary to win. But then, when everyone is cheating, what will become of the NFL?

I would also like to add. Now that we have an actual "Football" guy running the show. Just maybe we can get there. Without having to stoop to the Pats level. I want to win. But, I also like to look in the mirror and not be ashamed.

#3223719 Can't decide who to pull for on Sunday.

Posted by iamhubby1 on 29 January 2015 - 08:19 PM

I hate both teams, unfortunately, they both can't lose. So I want the Hawks to lose. I don't want to have to hear how Wilson is the goat. That lucky little shiit gets on my last nerve.

#3198059 What we brought them here for

Posted by iamhubby1 on 11 January 2015 - 04:09 PM

We got to have a QB thats consistent to throw to these guys, look at LaFell and Smith

So...do you have a solution to this problem? Or are you just good at pointing out problems, and not so much at solving them?

Do we draft a QB? Or go with DA? Maybe Webb can get it done? How about a trade?

My grandpappy always said. "A complaint without a solution is just a bitch."

Looks like a run down factory. Are you sure you're at the right place?

#3191078 Just wanted to say thank you for this week

Posted by iamhubby1 on 10 January 2015 - 03:37 PM

I wanna be nice, I really do. But...go drink some God awful coffee, and prepare thine anus.

That said. If you weren't playing us, I wouldn't care.

And for old times sake. GOOOOOOOOOOOOO CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
