#2864170 22 of 30 top high school prospects choose Cam

Posted by Blackmagic on 25 July 2014 - 09:11 AM

Agree. These would be the players most in the front of these kids' thoughts being they're in high school.


But it's kind of funny that no one is talking about RG3.

A better poll would be if the other choices were guys that have had success ready in the NFL rather than a college player and a rookie who has not taken a snap, but nice to see nonetheless.

I think that they were talking about college Cam Newton instead of NFL Cam Newton. All of them won the Heisman, but who was better as a college QB.

#2771392 WR's than run 4.5 or slower

Posted by Blackmagic on 09 May 2014 - 09:01 AM

Yep. For his size KB actually moves well. 




I think some huddle GMs expect guys that are 6'5 to run 4.3.


People don't understand that Calvin 'Megatron' Johnson is the exception.

#2717946 Ron Rivera: Panthers may not need number 1 WR in 2014

Posted by Blackmagic on 27 March 2014 - 06:34 AM

Only a few teams have a real number 1 WR. Contrary to belief, the team didn't have number 1 WR in production last year, just in name. The team has to find receivers who can get open. An offense is more dangerous if Cam spread the ball and can throw to the open receiver (they actually catch the ball) instead of forcing passes. 

#2715770 Gettleman speaks......finally

Posted by Blackmagic on 25 March 2014 - 12:25 PM

I think if Cam has any kind of awareness he'll understand whether we sign him this year or next that he will want to go easy on his team to ensure they can help build around him to provide him championships...


it's rare, but I think if it ever happened, this would be the guy...  


You can keep dreaming about that. He and his agent will and should go for the max because the CBA screwed his class and the following rookies. Cam made almost 50 million dollar less than Sam Bradford in his first years, and you think that his agent will play nice. 

#2704115 Want Gettleman out?

Posted by Blackmagic on 18 March 2014 - 06:15 AM

People just don't want to see that he wants to set up the franchise for long term success even if the team has to take step back next year. 

Most of our free agents got deals above their production and that's good for them, but it would be a mistake if Gettleman sign them to those contracts. The team has little cap space and Gettleman wants to be out of cap hell in two years to build a long term winning team.


He can't take on long contracts because Cam, Hardy and Luke's contracts are coming up.


He can't sign free agents if they can get more guaranteed money elsewhere. Don't  forget that the team needs 5 million cap space to sign draft picks. Sometimes, you need to take a step back to take two steps forward.

#2702622 eagles not happy with Jackson

Posted by Blackmagic on 17 March 2014 - 03:15 PM

They're not happy about paying him more than 10 million a year. They can trade them if they want and get a 2th or 3th from Oakland or Jaguars (teams with a lot of cap space).

#2702019 Cotchery to Visit Monday!

Posted by Blackmagic on 17 March 2014 - 09:42 AM

Cotchery is perhaps the most underrated third receiver in the league over the last few years. He regularly makes big plays, is a reliable possession receiver and dominates the middle of the field, an absolute must for a team like the Panthers who are in need of a good third receiver.Here's hoping we can sign him for a reasonable amount of money.


Preach. He isn't a world beater, but has good hands. I still can believe that he had 10 TD's last year. He's a good 3rd receiver and cheap.


The team needs receivers who can score touchdowns instead of being tackled on the 1 yard line. Cam would've had 10 more passing TD's if the receivers could finish or were an inch longer.

Mitchell to Philly :(


Philly is out with Jenkins signing. I think that he goes to Redskins. It would be ironic if Oakland wants him back and gives him a big contract.

#2683790 the reason behind all of this BS happening is...

Posted by Blackmagic on 11 March 2014 - 01:21 PM

Not everything is Hurney's fault.


Mitchell and Ginn outperformed their one year contracts, and the team can't get into a bidding war over Mitchell. He's a good player, but not great or elite. 

#2683445 wharton may retire

Posted by Blackmagic on 11 March 2014 - 11:13 AM

I don't think that he wants to move his family, and it would be smart to leave the game healthy. I doubt that Gettleman is willing to give more than vet min with Amini and Williams returning from injuries.

#2683350 Signings can start today at 4pm

Posted by Blackmagic on 11 March 2014 - 10:36 AM

I expect that Nicks is in the bag. Hometown team plus previous relationship with the Gettleman. 

#2672908 Still loving Gettleman?

Posted by Blackmagic on 03 March 2014 - 10:35 AM

My guess it is about the money we are paying him 


That is it. Gettleman doesn't like to overpay. Smith is great, but not a no 1 WR anymore. 

#2672899 Kaepernick wants $18MM per year

Posted by Blackmagic on 03 March 2014 - 10:30 AM

If he gets 18 million per year, Cam deserves 20+. Kaep couldn't get anything with a great o-line, good running game, and Vernon Davis & Bolden until Crabtree returned. Give Cam the same team, he wins a ring.

#2660494 Life without Hardy may not be so bad?

Posted by Blackmagic on 21 February 2014 - 04:50 AM

i think there is some of that, but i think.  lot is also honestly looking at what we would be like if we lost him and realizing that the defense is good enough that it can withstand a loss like that and still be dominant and not take serious steps backward.



we still have cj and star and kk as well as those LBs behind the DL who will make it easy for his replacement to do his job. we have a great GM who knows a thing or two about building great DLs and a HC and DC who are great at scheming defense.


it will hurt a little, but it won't cripple us. we're a whole lot better with him, but still a great D if we were without him.


I think that people can look back more objectively because of the time gap. He's good run defender, but to be fair, a mediocre pass rusher. Most of his sacks came against bad teams and a rookie with his first start. If you want the money that he seeks, you want a DE who shows up in big games and good teams.


Remember the New England game? CJ gets injured and the pass rush disappears. CJ returns, and the pass rush returns.


I agree that CJ, KK and star, and a good DE can get it done if Hardy leaves. With the Cam, Luke and Star's contract coming up, you don't want most of your cap spent on 4 a 5 players.
