#2686520 Nicks reps and Panther reps talking.....

Posted by TheRumGone on 12 March 2014 - 11:13 AM

i dont know how we are going to swing smitty's cap hit next year and the year after plus signing nicks, then have to pay cam and luke the following year when we just handed hardy 13.1 million.


this stuff is just not adding up

also to note:


who else can we afford that can give us a boost like Nicks could right now?

i'm not sure people are understanding our predicament and how nicks is actually the perfect WR, along with Rice, to go after.


These guys are huge potential signings, even more so then Ginn was because they have actually been in the upper echelon of recievers at some point in their careers.


Ginn never had a QB like Cam throwing to him, he shined last year. Won us the NE game.


I look at it this way. We are fuging lucky to even be in the conversation with a receiver like Nicks. We are "cap-strapped" as Gettleman said and we can sign a guy who was:


1. At one point a 1000 yard 7+ TD reciever and still only 26 years old

2. Affordable because of the absolute dumpster fire the Giants were last year and Eli throwing 27 picks.



This is exactly the guy we can actually afford and target and who can come in and make a BIG splash. These are the type of receivers that we can afford right now.  And Rivera is the complete opposite of Coughlin.

Interesting because when I google Demarcus Ware to the Colts I get nothing...nada. I see the Bronocs are the favorite because that is where Demarcus' first choice is to visit, in fact he is flying there today. Makes sense that would be reported as a favorite for a landing spot for him. I'll keep searching for all the National media stories trying to get Ware with Luck though. Maybe I am using the wrong internet.


i think he's talking about this article....




"Saturday's leak is a tacit admission that he will have to accept a lesser deal to rebuild his value before hitting the NFL jackpot. In which case, teaming with Luck in Indianapolis is the right idea."


I don't let this bother me, but the media slobs on Lucks balls waayyyyyyy too much. He's a good qb whose still got a lot to learn like every single other young qb named newton, wilson, kaep, tannehill and rg3.

I hope this happens today but we are the panthers

#2685910 Jonathon Martin to 49ers

Who cares. He's a bitch & a mental midget. Shame on the NFL. It's obvious he just didn't want to be in Miami & weaseled his way to go to the team of his choice.

Old team, psychotic coach, shitty QB.

The more bitches on that dumpster fire, the better.

You know you are a fuging dick right ? Or are you bored after kicking your brother and his gf out of your apartment and have no one to talk to

Same thing happened last year. "Everybody's getting better but us"

Meanwhile most of those signings bombed and our 1 year deal players shined.

Gotta slow down and watch the process then make up your minds

#2685753 Panthers re-sign James Dockery

Posted by TheRumGone on 11 March 2014 - 10:29 PM

vet, vet, rookie, rookie, Silatolu, Kalil, Wharton

Nicks, Rice, Smith, Ginn, rookie


Tolbert, Williams, Stewart


Offense is scary right now, but it's possible we have a very, very good offense by August. No need to panic.

Wharton I'm betting retires and smitty is up in the air. Everything else is good. Right now poo looks scary cause the unknown scares people. I'm just gonna enjoy the ride and see how the 2014 panthers are formed.

#2685694 Panthers re-sign James Dockery

Posted by TheRumGone on 11 March 2014 - 10:05 PM

Joking aside, dockery is very talented. Good signing.

This place is close to unbearable during the first wave of FA. What these teams are doing is trying to compete with our defense for the south crown.

We still have a front seven that is one of the best if not the best in the league. Our rookie dts have another year of experience. We keep looking for solid corners who play well within our scheme.

Offense is another story. It's gonna be a long road but I'm optimistic. As of right now, we have no fuging clue how things are gonna shake out. Signing nicks will be a great start to the rebuild.

Really because it feels a whole lot like this is a rebuild.


offensive rebuild....


which btw people had been screaming for. the smith situation is really what is putting a damper on people moods about all this...understandably.


we build the offense around Cam, Kalil and Olsen. That's fuging it.


besides smitty, are people genuinely surprised or unhappy about this?

#2682444 Panthers attempting to trade Steve Smith.

Posted by TheRumGone on 10 March 2014 - 09:17 PM

I don't see it that way at all. It's all speculation at this point and the Gman has said repeatedly that he won't discuss contract negotiations in the media. So it's all guessing and stirring the pot by the media to get a response from him and Steve. Unfortunately it seems Steve is falling for it.

Whatever dude. Gettleman is a northern dick, and I'm not saying that's a bad thing under some circumstances. But he botched this completely

What a complete PR disaster.

#2680811 Redskins want Mike Mitchell

Posted by TheRumGone on 09 March 2014 - 10:41 PM

It's hard to describe what makes Mitchell so perfect for this team, but that is exactly what it is - perfect. He has been our most intimidating safety since Minter. He, to me, was the most underrated player in the entire league this season and he was our heart and soul. Guys like him and Kraken are what made our defense so fugging tough. Yes, Keek is a leader, but you need a guy that's gonna talk some smack and bust people in the mouth too... guys that play on the edge. Mitchell is the epitome of that player. And he is rangy and much more of an athletic playmaker than given credit for.



pie a thousand times.


there was a thread about who is our core moving forward.


i listed mitchell as a must re-sign. people here are acting like we are not losing an important piece of this defense. the man took over our secondary and flourished. He was a force, somebody to be feared but also a very heady player. I want him back more than Ginn.

the early contracts are the outliers. every year a couple teams overpay for players initially, but things settle down. a couple teams overspend for their own FAs and  couple more teams overpay for FAs right after they hit the market.


if the market doesn't settle down (which i feel it will), then we'll just take advantage of the cheaper talent in the draft class while other WR needy teams have used too much resources to warrant going after one in the draft.


it's a stacked market and it only plays to our favor. we'll get some "wiley vet" WR to come in and overperform their miniscule contract while we draft one or two  good WRs. 


despite what teams have done so far prior to FA opening up to keep their players, this will still be a buyers market. that doesn't mean cheap, but it does mean more affordable and better values.



yup. mike wallace last year than things settled down drastically.

they already have great pieces on defense. they draft and sign those players they will be a force.
