#3304382 If it came down to Peat or Perriman....

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on Yesterday, 02:46 PM

The Panthers believe the same.

Peat on their radar. Perriman... Not so much.


Bam!

Also, from the recent articles, Cleveland and Oakland are looking hard at him. That's all you need to know about his future really.


#3303290 NFL.com's GM List of Highest Success with Rookies

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 28 March 2015 - 02:34 AM

That is a horrible article.

A GM who decided to trade away picks for 1 or 2 players in the draft would always be listed as the best GM. They would only need to hit on 1 or 2 picks with this method every 4 years to stay at the top. Also, the mediocre and bad teams rely on their rookies to start and be a large part of the game plan. This also gives an advantage to GMs who are constantly replacing players in the starting line up. That is why the Dolphins, Rams, Vikings, and Bucs top this list.

What I take from that is the GMs who challenge and go to the Super Bowl consistently draft an average of 9 players per year.

Gettleman is dead last at 5 drafted players per year. That skews the All Rookie Team as a gauge of a GM.

If you want to compete for a championship, you better rack up 10 to 12 picks in the draft every year to fill out a roster. This coupled with great scouting will lead to a very successful team. This will also allow a team to easily obtain cap space and rent those one or two top tier free agents to win a championship if you do not find them through the draft.

If this means you need to trade down out of the first and second round to obtain several 3rd, 4th, and 5th round picks, then you do it. Teams that value their 1st and 2nd round picks when they only have 5 picks in the draft and are using free agency to fill out their roster are setting themselves up for mediocrity. There is no way you will compete with the top GMs year in and year out.


Again...

:lol:


#3303286 Maine's 2015 Mock Draft (Comp. Picks Included)

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 28 March 2015 - 02:25 AM

Duke Johnson is a scat back so no he's not the best RB in this class..


Considering Duke ran right at Florida State's DL and amassed 130 yards says he's not just a scatback.

Strong and Parker are better prospects and will possibly be available at 25. That said, if Gurley, La'el, Odighizuwa, Peat, or Beasley are still available, we'll nab them up instead.


#3300563 I am on Bre shad Perriman's bandwagon

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 26 March 2015 - 01:16 PM

They have knocked him for his work ethic, not his football IQ. Where the fug are you getting your info from?


You do realize his lack of football IQ stems from not studying the playbook, right? Hence lazy work ethic. He was criticized by our own school paper and twice by national commentators for being on the wrong page with his QB on more than one occasion in a single game. Again, his QB is dreadful but Perriman didn't do himself any favors by running the wrong routes and causing turnovers.

I swear. The Huddle is a lot like a hot and bothered chick every time someone runs a 4.3 or 4.2.

Dion Jordan 2.0?


#3298207 Gettleman on Sirius NFL Radio 3/24/2015

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 25 March 2015 - 02:26 AM

I'm not sack sniffing the fat fug. Sorry huggers. I'll believe it when I see it and what I have seen so far is a LONG way from deserving the slurpfest he gets here. Some bold moves, some stupid moves and a few bottom feeder deals but no coherent plan yet and NO results on the field yet.

What's not to slobber about?


The plan is quite simple really (if you've paid attention, or possessed common sense at least).

- Escape Cap Hell
- Build through the draft
- Win

We've done all three. So stop your whining. Odds are you're just an angry fan who still hasn't gotten over Smitty getting released and/or us not going after big name free agents.


#3298140 Matt Miller's 7 Round Mock Draft with Comp Picks

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 24 March 2015 - 10:56 PM

Lulz at all the butthurt regarding Humphries NOT being on our board. He's average. Why the hell would we draft him 25th overall? The guy was set to be drafted in the third round no more than a month and a half ago.

And we're not drafting Dorsett. I can guarantee that. His hands are awful. Proehl can't fix that.


#3298005 Gettleman on Sirius NFL Radio 3/24/2015

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 24 March 2015 - 08:41 PM

I can't believe there are some actual fans that despise this man for previous regime issues and calculated (yet cold) business tactics. Gettleman is a TRUE General Manager. We are damn lucky to have him. The Panthers organization is trending upward because of him.


#3297343 FOX's Peter Schrager: "I expect Carolina to take a WR in the 1st R"

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 24 March 2015 - 11:54 AM

He didn't participate in the combine due to hamstring injury but his pro day is tomorrow and he is expected to participate in everything.


If he runs a 4.3, he'll suddenly be a Top 15 prospect... like every year.


#3297299 Evan Mathis likely to be cut

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 24 March 2015 - 11:27 AM

If you make assumptions like that, you'd better be right


I feel confident in that assessment, and so do NFL analysts now. If the draft was re-done, Norwell would've been a third or fourth round pick according to them.

Not bad for an UDFA.

His father does own a nice steakhouse


He better stay away from there too.


#3296030 Brazil considered for 2017 Pro Bowl

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 23 March 2015 - 03:11 PM

I can see it now.

Gronk is gonna get super aids, Brady is gonna get kidnapped, Manning is gonna run a sex/drug trafficking operation, Ryan is gonna be involved in a MMM threesome, Brees will get cheap plastic surgery, Watt is gonna be proclaimed warlord of Brazil, etc.

Feel free to add on.


#3292905 Sacks + QB Hits allowed, 2014

Posted by Promethean Forerunner on 20 March 2015 - 07:40 PM

That's why I broke down the playoff teams in terms of percentages.


This where it gets tricky because you do have to take into account how long Stafford and Luck hold onto the ball. Despite our criticisms of Cam, both Luck and Stafford still hold onto the ball in the pocket too long.

Tannehill is the type of QB who puts up 'efficient' numbers but when you see him play live you ask yourself: "how"?
