#2863600 Godfrey:I'm full go

Posted by the_philosopher on 24 July 2014 - 04:50 PM

I think he has college experience at CB. Couple that with familiarity with the system and the new renegotiated contract coming off an injury thing it makes sense that he would get a shot.

 

Thanks for the reply. I still don't get it. Yes, he has college experience at CB, but he has pro experience at safety. And I don't see why his injury would make him any better at cb than safety. And my point was that we should be just as concerned about depth and competition at safety as we are at nickelback, so I don't see why we'd feel the need to give him "a shot" at nickelback. He was fine at safety, and right now, we don't have much behind two veterans who've never played in our system. That's why this move doesn't make sense to me unless they think he can be a top-tier nickelback for some reason. I hope he can.




#2858607 Benjamin reacts to Madden Rating

I came across this on foxsports.com. Benjamin appears twice for just a few seconds but manages to provide at least one meaningful quote: "We beefin' man!"

 




#2817376 Age vs Wear & Tear. This writer gives D-Lo the thumbs up.

Posted by the_philosopher on 12 June 2014 - 10:28 AM

OK, I'm bored. So, here's a statistical comparison of these same players spanning NFL and college.

 

 

                                        AGE           PRO CARRIES         COLLEGE       TOTAL

DeAngelo Williams             31                    1,370                     969              2,339

Frank Gore                        31                    2,187                     348              2,535
Steven Jackson                  30                   2,553                      743             3,296
Adrian Peterson                 29                    2,033                     748              2,781
Maurice Jones-Drew          28                    1,804                     481              2,285
Matt Forte                          28                    1,551                     833              2,384
Marshawn Lynch                28                    1,753                     490              2,243
Ray Rice                             27                    1,430                     910             2,340
 
 
For what it's worth, I think Williams can be good this year (if the oline can block) just based on what I saw in some explosive plays last year.



#2814496 ESPN Insider PFF Roster Rankings Panthers 22 with NO Elite Players.

Posted by the_philosopher on 09 June 2014 - 04:50 PM

My favorite part is that the defensive player of the year isn't considered elite at his position.




#2811422 Brandon Lafail running his mouth again

Posted by the_philosopher on 06 June 2014 - 10:01 AM

Possibly true, but what is he comparing--Patriots OTA's to Panthers OTA's? In that case, who cares? OTA's are non-contact anyway. If instead he's saying that his current practices are tougher than Spartanburg practices, then he is full of crap.

I was actually wanting to start a Clausen thread the other day but was afraid of the consequences. I had read this articleabout his comeback attempt.

Yeah, but why does he always jump when he presses the button?




#2806489 NFL.com article-Peppers best player in team history.

Posted by the_philosopher on 02 June 2014 - 08:52 AM

I've been waiting for a chance to bring this up, so here goes:

 

I often wonder if we'll ever know what was wrong with Peppers during his lost season with us. You'd think that with former teammates retiring and such, we'd hear something. I don't know if anything like it has ever happened in sports--an absolutely dominant player who became less than average for a year with no explanation.




#2798142 All Time Panther Team

Posted by the_philosopher on 23 May 2014 - 01:16 PM

The biggest change I would make is at RB. There aren't many running backs in the history of the NFL who ever had better seasons that Williams did in 2008. And he's had other strong seasons too. He's got to be ahead of Davis.

 




#2790033 Bank of America Stadium phase 2

Posted by the_philosopher on 16 May 2014 - 02:24 PM

I'm loving the stadium upgrades that I have seen so far. I think the fan experience should be dope. I want to know what phase 2 is all about. And when is it going to happen? I know the dumbasses will respond with jokes like "an underground strip club". Seriously, does anybody have any info?





What I have done above is fix your post. You're welcome.


On point, I think it'll be basic stuff. Make the stadium look sleeker. A lot of cleaning. Fresh paint. poo like that.

 

I guess I'm the nerd who will now point out to you that your edits of someone else's writing were followed by a series of incomplete sentences of your own. Please disregard if you were writing a poem about the stadium upgrades.




#2783652 More 7th round picks and undrafted free agents have 10yr or more careers than...

Posted by the_philosopher on 13 May 2014 - 08:34 AM

99% of people who die young have two arms. So, I'm going to cut my left arm off.




#2774476 No matter what Gman does some of you won't hop off his dick

Posted by the_philosopher on 09 May 2014 - 08:43 PM

I love this pick. We will need a starting DE in 2015 opposite Hardy or Johnson. I assume you'd like to have a starting LT for the 2014 season instead. But I have a feeling Dave didn't draft one because there weren't any.




#2774434 Alexander fu-ups + hardy playing hardball=Ealy

Posted by the_philosopher on 09 May 2014 - 08:40 PM

I like BPA. But people need to stop thinking that this was Dave chosing BPA over a guy who he thought would be a good starting LT this season. If there was a player at the end of the freakin 2nd round that Dave thought could be a good starting LT this season, that would have made him the BPA. Starting LT's aren't easy to come by.

 

I love this pick.
