In Topic: 2011 NFL draft revisited, would you take JJ Watt over Cam?

20 May 2015 - 05:45 AM

Look at it this way in a redraft with the two first rounders and the one second rounder from 2011 and 2012:


Cam Newton and Luke Kuechly




JJ Watt and Andrew Luck 




JJ Watt, Luke Kuechly, and Russell Wilson


3 options to find that QB.

In Topic: David Newton: Tough cuts may be a coming at WR/RB

Wegher will not make it to the practice squad. Teams know about him. That is why the Panthers gave him a 3 year contract.


Stewart, Tolbert, Wegher, and Artis Payne are going to be taken by another team without a question. Do not even think about keeping Wegher or Artis Payne on the practice squad. Fozzy, Reaves, and Todman will be waiting for a team to take them if they are released.


The most versatile player of the RBs who can play on any special teams unit is Wegher. There is no question which RB contributes the most to special teams.

My turn. This is how I see it in a Shula led offense without DeAngelo and adding Funchess.


Cam Newton will have 570 pass attempts on the season. Cam will best his completion percentage from 2013 with 63% (359 completions). Targets: KB gets 170 (102 rec @ 14.5 y/r), Olsen gets 130 (82 rec @ 12.0 y/r), and Funchess gets 120 (72 rec @ 13.5 y/r) - Other RB/WR 150 (103 rec @ 12 y/r).


I will give Cam his normal 5.5 ypa with 120 rushing attempts on the season and 8 rushing TDs given he is healthy. Give him a slightly better 2.6 int% and bump him back up to a 5.1 TD% from 2013.


All of that is reasonable given Shula's trend toward passing more, the addition of Funchess, KB no longer being the sole focus of the secondary and a year under his belt to increase his catch%, possibly the best all around OL Cam has had since he was drafted, a full off season with his receivers, a contract season, and no more DeAngelo Williams to take some carries.



So, Cam passes for 4671 yards, 29 TDs, and 15 INTs. He rushes for 660 yards and 8 TDs.

In Topic: Patriots accused of cheating (redux)

17 May 2015 - 04:52 AM

Patriots have always cheated to get an advantage under Belichick. Anyone saying otherwise is a Patriots fan or believes coincidence is the norm in their day to day life. This was common knowledge back when the Panthers played the Patriots in the Super Bowl. The Panthers actually changed their hotels and bused themselves in to Houston because there was suspicion of the Patriots setting up recording devices around the Panthers hotel and practice facility. I am sure Ricky Proehl gave the Panthers the run down of what happened to the Rams pre Super Bowl when they faced the Patriots. It still infuriates Marshall Faulk.


The problem is they are not the only club that actively cheats with the coaching staff. The Saints, Seahawks, Steelers, Ravens, Colts, Falcons, Giants, Packers, and Buccaneers have all actively cheated from either their coaches or front offices (including owners). All the Super Bowl winning teams have cheated for some time to gain that unfair advantage. I can go all the way back to the Broncos of 1997 and the only team I can not nail for cheating (obtaining an unfair competitive advantage from the coaching or higher) is the Rams of 1999. Anything from an individual standpoint like PEDs or stick'em on gloves I am not considering.


I have been of the opinion that the Panthers must push the envelope of cheating to win against the top teams in the NFL. Not that I want that, but it is the only way to even the playing field. I would prefer a stiffer penalty for teams who believe in asking for forgiveness rather than permission. Banning them from the following years playoffs and stripping them of any games that were affected by the incident should stop this nonsense of acceptable cheating. Either that or just openly encourage teams to push the envelope until the NFL warns all teams for the remainder of the season. Then the stiff penalty of banning them from the playoffs and taking their draft pick occurs if they are caught. All investigations take 48 hours for a "more probable than not" finding.


I would even support banning coaches from the NFL for these type of offenses. They will still find a job easier than a player who is banned from the league for conduct detrimental to the league. Something needs to be done to dissuade teams from these "bending the rules" aka cheating tactics.


Unless an owner/coach believes in fair play, then who wouldn't cheat If you can cheat to win a Super Bowl, and then just take the punishment after your Super Bowl. It is like paying for an unfair advantage, but you still win and you are still champions.

Both get cut from the team.
