#3283279 What's wrong with this?

Posted by mountainpantherfan2 on 13 March 2015 - 07:44 PM

It looks to me like teams that have less talented QBs have to make up for that by over paying for more talented WRs.

I've always felt like a good QB can make a average WR look way more talented than he really is. Just look at the Pats, Packers, Steelers, Colts with Manning, Broncos with Manning, Saints and Seahawks. These are the teams that build their WR corp via the draft. When they do trade for a player or sign a FA it's usually not the big names the get signed by the Bills and Texans and Jags. Then then get cut when they no longer have Rogers at el throwing to them.

I'm all for signing a good #2 option. And there are some options out there that I wish DG was targeting. But if your point is that DG NEEDS to get Cam better WRs then I don't want Cam as my QB for the long haul.

However I don't think Cam is that type of QB. Based on what I've seen he does make WR look good. And he doesn't NEED to surrounded by a bunch of high profile, high prices FAs. Give him better field position (Ginn) and more time in and out of the pocket (Oher) and he will be turning Brown into the next overpaid NYJ WR.

Hurney's claim to fame was his ability to work the cap and hitting on 1st round picks. Notice I said work the cap not manage it. This ultimately lead to his downfall. To much pushing money around and lead it blew up in his face.

While his track record after the 1st round was close to horrible, I can't think of another GM is recent time that was able to get it right that often and for that long in the 1st. Of course DG has added 2 more years to that streak which makes me wonder how much of that was Hurney and how much was it the scouts.

#2782345 Better or Worse

Posted by mountainpantherfan2 on 12 May 2014 - 12:07 PM

I agree with most of the comments above. Overall the team as a whole has improved and IMO the WR Corp, Interior OLine and Secondary are all better units than last year. Especially the secondary.

Decoud, Harper, Godfrey, White and Cason together as a unit will work far better together. The problem I felt a lot last season was that Captain and Mitchell seemed to free lance too much. Every now and then they would make a big play but more often they were out of position. I could be wrong but this new unit I see working much more like one unit rather than 5 individuals.

I also see the same (sort of) with the WR corp. probably less big play potential but much more consistent and Cam might not have to get every 3rd down conversion with his legs.

#2540990 WR Crop Looking Pretty Strong for 2014

Jordan Matthews. If he is available at our pick we need to take this kid. Arguably the greatest WR in SEC history based on production. Not to mention his cousin was a pretty good WR too.

#2522054 Time to game plan for Taints big TE and WR....what's our strategy?

Posted by mountainpantherfan2 on 01 December 2013 - 06:06 PM

TD needs to spy Graham. He's one of the few LBers in the NFL that is big enough and fast enough and has the coverage skills to cover him. You take away Graham and that offense becomes much more ordinary.

I agree with RoaringRiot pull for the Bucs over the Lions this will also help our SOS.

I'd also add the 49ers over the Redskins. We beat the 9ers head to head and keeping them ahead of the Cards is more important. Also goes to help our SOS.

Vikings win will also help our SOS. Looks solid overall though.

I'm calling here first. I think our next HC will be Mike Tomblin. Word is that the Ronneys may make a change if there is no playoffs this year as the whole team is going to have to be redone due to the cap mess they have theirselves in.

Tomblin has a defensive background but he is in my opinion the very definition of a head coach.

3 Issues with trading for an offensive lineman:

1) I have heard nothing of any team or player that would be on trading block. That doesn't mean the options aren't out there. But before asking DG to trade something of value I'd like to know what the return at least could be.

2) The best time to make a trade will be between the 3rd and 4th preseason games. A quality starter that is still good but just so happened to get beat out by a young up and comer is the ideal situation. But teams aren't going to let go of a player until they are sure and no injuries have occurred.

3) And this is the most important point. Your assumption is that DG believes it is worth the risk to make a trade and that he sees Newton as his franshise QB. Neither may be case.

The fan in me agrees with you in that right now I'm still hopeful for this season and believe Newton is our guy. And maybe a trade may happen. But it's not like its as easy as just saying it. Other teams have to be willing as well.

#2236842 Rivera: Panthers' new offense will be more of a collaberative effort

Posted by mountainpantherfan2 on 20 May 2013 - 06:55 AM

I think you guys are reading way too much into this. All Rivera was saying is that Shula didn't walk in with his own play book. Rather he's taken the existing one and reforming it with input from the coaching staff that maximises the strengths of the players.

And the aggressive comment I think is just a nice way of saying he's going to run the ball instead of trying to insert every trick play known to man.

#2216455 Jets to cut Tebow...could there be a place a the Panthers's roster?

Dude has won more playoff games than Cam. Just saying.

He has talent as a football player but its just not as a starting QB.

I'm not a fan of The Golden Calf of Bristol. But talent is talent. He's not a starting NFL QB but could he be used as an emergency back QB but then also used as a HB//FB/TE type of player but he would have to actually contribute in that role. Of course it's also up to The Golden Calf of Bristol to take on that type of role.

Then there is also the issue of the media attention and crazy evangelical Christians to deal with.

I'm not advotcating for this but the idea came to mind when I read the Jets are going to cut him and wanted to see what others thought. To be honest his time in the NFL may have come to an end.
