#3279216 Gettleman: Oher can be answer at left tackle

Posted by unicar15 on 12 March 2015 - 09:47 AM

Glad he feels that way. Will free us up to go BPA in the draft.

Please resign this guy. Instant ST and deep threat upgrade.

DGB IMO has highest ceiling of any of the receiver. He runs better than any 6'4" + receiver I've seen since Calvin..just very very effortless in his breaks from the limited available highlights. Mizzou was throwing bubble screens to that guy. Pretty impressive stop and go for a guy his size.


#3238512 Ted Ginn Jr could return to Panthers

Posted by unicar15 on 11 February 2015 - 01:00 PM

Im a Ted Ginn fan btw i just dont see how much he brings to the receiving game


His value as a return man is enough for me to sign him.

Ill take 40/600/5 line and a couple return TDs out of a 2 mil/year receiver. Him setting Cam up with short fields was invaluable when you have a defense holding teams to 15ppg.


#3230754 Dan Patrick vs. Cowherd

Posted by unicar15 on 04 February 2015 - 11:10 AM

If you actually listen to the show the only reason that DP is brought up is to make a point about how hard Rome works. When Colin was talking it sounded more to me like he was putting himself in DPs category of having a ton of help...while Rome and Bayless were in a separate category.

DP needs to get the sand out of his vag...they all have the easiest freaking job on the planet. Just shut it.


#3228188 Cris Carter on RW contract

Posted by unicar15 on 02 February 2015 - 09:50 AM

What about Cam makes you think he's less likely to make a team-first move like that? If anything, I'd say Cam's endeavors in sponsorship and other things (Bell) outside of football show that he's savvy enough to capitalize on other revenue streams and that he understands winning will make those increase exponentially.

Now, no one expects a ridiculous discount, but I could see a QB in this situation sacrificing a couple million a year (say, $17MM vs. $22MM) in salary to this end.


It's not necessarily a negative about Cam's demeanor it's more of a positive outlook to RW...the guy is just different from other players. His postgame interview after he threw that pass was incredible from a maturity standpoint.

The reason I think Cam is less likely is because there is a standard for former #1s and the fact that throughout this year we heard about Cam wanting 100+ million for this contract.

The argument about Seattle having players who need to get paid and Car not is dumb. Keuchly, Star, KK off the top of my head are all guys who will be in the top 2-3 FAs at their position. So...we have guys we are gonna want to resign. We are also going to have positions we want to upgrade.

All I'm saying is that in the salary cap era you see guys like Brady, Roethlisberger and others working with their team to consistently make them contenders. Wilson will be no different IMO and Cam COULD do the same but the banter during the offseason seemed like he was going to hold our feet to the fire. You want DG to build this team to compete with the Hawks...give him money and I guarantee he'll do it.


#3217205 Dave Gettleman to Marty Hurney - You left us a cap mess, but drafted a hell o...

Posted by unicar15 on 22 January 2015 - 03:46 PM

The fact that DG in two offseason has completely rebuilt this team with young, cheap talent is unprecedented in our team's history. He honestly has become one of the best GMs in the league along with Schneider and Newsome. I don't think any team in the league over the last 3 years has had the draft success that we have had. It's unheard of to have a team go 5-1 during a playoff push while starting 5 rookies from one draft (not counting brown which makes 6).


Out of 11 total picks:
Star - starter played at pro bowl level last year
Short - starter played at pro bowl level last 2 years
Klein - starter for part of the year
Kugz - bust
Barner - bust
KB - starter (future pro bowler)
Boston - starter
Turner - starter
Bene - starter
Ealy - starter

It's not only the players he picked up..it's the ones he cut as well. Godfrey was garbage so instead of pulling a Hurney, cut him. Same with Cason. So far he's proving to be head and shoulders better than any GM we've ever had both with talent eval and contract situations.


#3205924 Mel Kiper Jr. Mock Draft 1.0 has us taking Andrus Peat

Posted by unicar15 on 15 January 2015 - 10:36 AM

DG is gonna have another amazing draft. He'll draft BPA regardless of position and we'll win the south again.


#3204266 Voth reviews the Gettleman presser

Posted by unicar15 on 14 January 2015 - 01:35 AM

How could you possibly keep Richard Rodgers...ST led to losses, a tie, and the Cam Chancellor thing was embarrassing and almost a compete disaster. The unit was inept..


#3200252 Realistically, what is the future of Shula?

Posted by unicar15 on 12 January 2015 - 11:19 AM

A combination of factors made up the demise of this offense:

A. Cam still just looks lost on some plays. They are leaning on his rushing ability for him to make plays which is necessary but not at the expense of him maturing as a pocket QB. His touch SUCKS. He throws a rocket or nothing at all...that needs to be corrected. Truthfully I think that Dorsey needs to be out too. Someone needs to get on the field with Cam and have him throw "touch" passes all offseason. We know he can bomb it and we know he can throw the 25 yard out route on a rope. He needs the touch throws.

B. Redzone play calling. Shula sucks at it. If we aren't within 5 yards where a back can just bulldoze his way in the Shula is lost. Our efficiency from the 25 to the 5 had to be the worst in the league. Long developing plays and crappy run calls are the norm for that area of the field and Shula needs to be gone for that reason as well.

C. I know this falls on the position coaches but taking our best players out at key times of the game is a problem. With a scoring opp and the OL protecting well on Saturday we took our best receiver out of the game and the result was a coverage sack. THEN...we make Breton Bersin the #1 option once again inside the redzone and he gets nothing which causes Cam to go to read 2 (covered) and then read 3 (Dickson) and throws a pick 6. Partly on Cam...partly on Shula for a freaking terrible play call at crucial moments of the game.


There is no reason for us to struggle scoring...we have 2 monster backs with good speed/agility. We have the most multi dimensional QB in the league. We have a 6'5" receiver who will only continue to improve. We have the most sure handed TE in the game...and our OL started playing well at the end of the season. Insert a LT and a speed WR and well have some weapons. But even with all of that I don't see Shula improving and that is the goal. So if he isn't improving then he should be gone.

Cam showed what he could do as a ROOKIE with a OC who would open it up and take shots. This is now gonna be year 5...


#3199226 So Cap numbers and possible cuts

Posted by unicar15 on 11 January 2015 - 09:26 PM

No way in hell does Carolina cut Stewart. Not going to happen.


Umm...he has had 5 good games behind a much improved line. I want him to be here but a 13 million dollar cap hit for a RB is insane. People need to realize RBs are a dime a dozen and we could draft a runner or pick one up in FA who could be just as effective.

The biggest move we need to make is getting rid of Shula. He sucks. Apart from that I don't give a damn who we cut.


#3151899 SI Most Disappointing - Star

Posted by unicar15 on 24 December 2014 - 08:24 AM

Stars lack of tackles and sacks lands him here. Hard to measure success at his position tho. The LBs he is tasked with keeping clean were both almost pro bowlers and KK had a superb year getting to the QB. So...if he's playing the NT in our D I gauge his success more by unit success than anything else.

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...
