#3128238 I'll have some of what Bruschi is smoking

Heard on the news that Byron Bell crossed the intersection right before Cam and completely whiffed on the oncoming traffic...

If you're watching this team with zero bias you'd think the exact same thing...

#3113924 Sporting News projects that Rivera will be fired on Black Monday (Dec 29)

Posted by unicar15 on 01 December 2014 - 04:18 PM

If they're right, we're gonna be competing with six other teams for head coaching prospects in a year when there aren't as many great prospects as previous years have seen.

Ugh :(

There are plenty of innovative coaches out there. Whether or not we hire one is a completely different story. If DG goes with a coughlin disciple or coughlin himself this fanbase will explode...I don't want any part of Perry Fewell or Kevin Gilbride. No thanks. Please look at the Eagles or Colts...

#3113917 shula reveals how much freedom newton has to audible...

Posted by unicar15 on 01 December 2014 - 04:16 PM

This team has always done quite well in the limited no-huddle we run. To me that shows Newton should be able to audible more often than 1/3.

#3101995 Great article on Cam's future in Observer today

People really need to get the sand out of their vaginas about Gettlemen. With the dumbass contracts that his predecessor handed out, tough decisions had to be made. Unfortunately we gave 13 million to a guy who hasn't played since week one.

Steve Smith would not make a damn bit of difference. As much as I liked the guy...he was on plenty of terrible Panthers teams. The guy who would have made a difference is Jordan Gross. Unfortunately he decided he was done with football.

At this point if the decision is between going to the playoffs and losing in the first round or missing the playoffs, getting Ron Rivera fired, and having a top 10 draft pick… We all know what we would choose.

What is the point in winning your division where everybody sucks only to retain your terrible head coach and go through the same crap next year?

Let's not be delusional and think that we are going to beat even Dallas as a wildcard coming into the Charlotte. The other option would probably be Detroit… What are the odds we beat them twice in one season?

If you get a top three or four draft pick you could turn that into a Washington/St. Louis situation where you get a ton of value for a pic that you don't really need. That could turn into an OT or legit safety in this class with two more #1s next year.

With DGs eye for draft talent getting two additional 1st round picks (one in 2015 and one in 2016) and an additional 2nd rounder could be a franchise changing deal. Move down in this years draft and you could STILL probably get a great offensive line prospect or take BPA. Then in the second you take BPA twice. It'd be exactly what this franchise needs as far as restocking the cubbard IMO. However...we aren't that lucky. We'll end up winning just enough games to give us a middle of the road pick and still somehow miss the playoffs.

#3100805 What sort of rage is unleashed if Olsen isn't retained?

Posted by unicar15 on 22 November 2014 - 01:00 PM

wanna know something else?

thomas davis' cap hit is about to be $9.9 million in 2015

$7.5 million in cap savings if he's a post-june 1 cut

get your pitchforks ready

There is a difference in cutting guys who aren't productive or even cutting guys who are moderately productive (see CJ). But cutting a guy who is playing as well or better than any other player at his position to save some cap would be idiotic.

#3099547 A cap expert gives a little analysis on our RBs among other things (via Person)

Posted by unicar15 on 21 November 2014 - 09:02 AM

Those three contracts in a nutshell illustrate why you people calling for DGs job are at best misguided and at worst..complete morons.

Dave Gettlemen took this job and told JR that bc of Hurney it would probably take 4 years before the roster was assembled. Last year was purely an outlier BECAUSE Gettlemen is such a good talent evaluator. The offensive line couldn't have been any better this year because the guys he picked off the waiver wire last year turned into stars and he had to replace them (Ginn, Mitchell in particular). You also lose Gross who was one of the best Panthers of all time.

But good insight about the RBs...saving some DWill cap room will be nice.

#3084537 Ryan Kalil's cap figure next year is 11+m

Posted by unicar15 on 12 November 2014 - 06:03 PM

Center has become almost as important as LT. Kalil isn't going anywhere and I wouldn't be surprised if we don't even ask him to take a cut. It'd be nice if it happened or if we decided to extend him but he's a Panther until the end.

OL is a unit so saying that Kalil is a problem area doesn't take into consideration that he is having to attempt to make up for the other crap players we have..and do more than probably a lot of other C in the league.

LT, RT, RG all need to be addressed (again) in the offseason but not C.

As far as other big cap hits I think Johnson is gone after this year. There are some really capable DE in free agency that could better for a fraction. Also think this is the year he doesn't count as a ridiculous amount of dead money.

People who are on the "fire DG" train need to realize that this year and possibly even next year are a product of Marty Hurney. Last year was almost like an abomination BECAUSE Gettlemen did such a good job finding cheap talent. IMO it was the exception and not the rule for this three year span until we fix the cap.

Is it frustrating? Of course...but this is what you get when you get an owner who doesn't know jack about what goes on in his org for a long period of time. My hunch is that bc JR was sick he just lost touch completely. When he finally realized that Hurney had crapped the bed...it was too late. He had kept him two years too long and was making a bunch of mediocre players very rich in the meantime.

#3079051 No longer a conspiracy

Posted by unicar15 on 10 November 2014 - 10:49 PM

You guys are so damn sensitive. Sabotaged him? For what? So he could suck for multiple years? Cam is the QB again next year no matter what so why screw a season after going 12-4?

This team sucks bc we had ZERO ability to keep/sign good players. That is not a DG problem. That was caused directly by Marty Hurney and indirectly by our idiotic owner who let Hurney continue to make stupid decisions year after year.

#3077323 If we get blown out again vs Mark Sanchez & The Eagles

Posted by unicar15 on 10 November 2014 - 09:18 PM

Rivera isn't getting fired midseason. Multiple blowouts on his resume with no playoffs and he SHOULD get fired at the end of the year..but won't. This will be Fox/Henning all over again where the OC is the scapegoat. It's the same charade every year with this clown car of an organization.

#3069409 Pratice Tweets

Posted by unicar15 on 05 November 2014 - 02:22 PM

Cam said in his week off he played a lot of video games. Sounds like a guy who deserves 100 mil to me. Go ask RW, Brady, and Luck what they do on byes and mini-byes. Sorry but that's an embarrassing answer...

#3068583 Some hard evidence why Shula needs to be fired now.

Posted by unicar15 on 04 November 2014 - 10:18 PM

He's made a career on his name. Time for him to go coach pop warner.

#3068394 Is Cam Newton the next Jay Cutler?

Posted by unicar15 on 04 November 2014 - 09:19 PM

I don't think it's unreasonable to say. For some reason with THIS GM and owner I do not necessarily see Cam as the long term QB for this franchise. I know some people are completely blinded by their love for Cam but QBs have to WIN in order to be seen as valuable. Is Kap better than Cam? No. But he wins. What about Dalton? Nope. But he wins.

You can blame the GM and owner all you want with the roster they assembled this year but Cam isn't without fault. He has made mistakes that have cost games. He has also kind of reverted back to moody Cam in recent weeks which isn't a good look.

Since Cam has been here we have had a great team for approximately 12 games and we routinely crap the bed on national TV for big games. The rest of the time we've been mediocre at best. For me to give you 100 mil you better have a better record than that.

#3065097 DG question.

Posted by unicar15 on 02 November 2014 - 09:12 PM

Last year and this year are both gravy years. I guarantee you DG told JR this would be probably at best a 3-4 year project until we could get Hurneys ridiculous cap situation under control.

Last year happened and that's great..he tried to recreate it this year and probably could have if Gross and Wharton hadn't retired..and Hardy/Alexander hadn't been idiots. But attrition happens and now we suck.

All that to say...he's not going to bring expensive contracts ala Marty Hurney as a stop gap. He wants long term, talented contributors. It's going to take time and it may take some heads to roll (Shula and Dorsey) but DG is going to get this thing going. He's been around good football for too long not to right the ship. Unless for some reason JR is some kind of a jerry jones type owner who meddles too much. However, I think that's probably not the case given his age and his health. How much could he possibly meddle??
