#3319678 Panthers throughout the years.

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 12 April 2015 - 03:47 PM

         P.S. Dont like the thread dont read it  Sucka!  :rr:


Looking over the past couple of  season , you can see the shift in the offense and defense with a inverse effect. In the 2011 & 2012 season  offense was dominating and carrying the load. The run game was on top shelf especially with Newton having  a solid line from inside out, you can notice the off tackle run and scrambling to the outside edge as his passing game was developing. 2013 & 2014 season where heavily leaned on  the defense as the offense investment and talent declined, but in spurts you could see evolution of the 2011 offense as Newton's passing ability grew. The offense is the key that will take the team over the hump ( NFC championship). Newton will be fully healed and investment in the OL and WR will give us the talent to compete with top notch defense.


Facts: In 2013 # 2 defense lost to 49rs 23-10 | Problems: Staled offense with lack of control at Line of Scrimmage: 

           In 2014 # 10 defense lost to Seahawks 31-17 | Problems: Continued staled offense with lack of separation and the              OL ability to contain pass rushers. 


           In 2015 Panthers win Superbowl | Solution Panthers ride the defense in the playoff but the Offense takes them over the hump via investment in the Draft. 








Keys: OL: OT's with the ability to sustain avg. pass protection and *seal the edges for the run game.

         Pass: # 2 WR either to stretch the field or work in the slot 

         Special Teams: Avg + field position

Making sales calls in a car smaller than a port-a-john. Fugging pissed. Tried Thrifty for first time and this is all they had. I can put this stupid car in my wallet and carry it with me. I farted and it turned off while on the interstate. It was one class lower than a rickshaw. Go Panthers!


Your helping the world out. :cam:

It's not the question itself. It's the thread title. It's sucks to come into a thread expecting good information and it's just one line staring you in the face.


#3308285 Should the Carolina Panthers Use an Early-Round Draft Pick on a Running Back?

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 01 April 2015 - 08:12 AM


Some interesting stats here, looking at the running backs from the worst offensive lines in football (of which Carolina is a part, sadly)










You pointed the solution out in your own question , Our OL is terrible and it would be futile drafting a RB if you do not fix the OL issue first. 


I would be willing to draft Gurley or Jay Ajayi in the 2nd round, but OT in the 1st for sure.


P.S. We can all throw number out everyday but to my eye test Stewart did a hell of a job. Bell Cow 2015

Also, Jennings might want to still be a no. 1 and he clearly will not be that here. Don't want an unhappy WR.

#3288166 DE | Preston Smith OT | Erick Flowers

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 17 March 2015 - 01:43 PM

Having the chance to watch the Bulldogs' defense play personally for several years its hard not to compare the Dawgs to our own Panthers.  The Bulldogs uses 4-3 defense with similar blitz style and coverages, relying heavily on the front 7 to dominate against the run and pressuring the QB. Preston Smith reminds me of our own Greg Hardy in terms of playing style and physique. Having  played all over the DL at DT  with 1 tech or  lining up outside to contain mobile QB like (Nick Marshall) or bring pressure in the pocket he excels with strength and speed. 


Defense wins championship? 


If your identity is defense you know you need a complimentary offense with ball control. The panthers have one of the most unique run game with ground and pound with J Stew & Tolbert and outside running game with Cam and Fozzy. Flowers is a big  physical tackle that has the ability to dominate in the run game while having the athletic ability to contain pass rushers. We have seen what Cam can do while having time in pocket, but he also excels on outside run when DE's are contained (Rookie season). Flowers has the ability to play in a zone or power which is perfect since we use a combination of both.



IMO if Preston is there in the 2nd round we should move up to grab him while picking a OT in the 1st.  


You: "Is the glass half full or half empty?"

Me: "The glass is overflowing come draft day!"






OT | Ereck Flowers - 6'-6" 329 lbs Miami ( 1st round) 



 Big, athletic frame carrying more than 320 pounds with ease. Ascending mauler in the run game. Bender who is low man off snap and pops hips into block to leverage defender at the point. Combines hips, arm extension and upper-body power to consistently turn his man when base blocking. Once he gets upper hand in run game, he usually sustains and finishes. Secures combo block with a vengeance. Has feet to become solid zone blocker. Mean and highly competitive. Wants to dominate and gets surly when beaten on a snap. Special foot quickness in pass protection. Able to mirror and counter two-way rushers or B-gap blitzers. Uses quick feet and loose hips to turn, scramble and recover when beaten. Pass-set depth and technique improved as year progressed. Has played both tackle positions.




DE | Preston Smith - 6'-5"  271lbs Mississppi State  (2nd round) 




 Angular build with long arms. Has point-of-attack strength and doesn't get pushed around. Plays with leverage against the run. Very sound wrap-up tackler who usually finishes the job. Flashes busy hands as a pass rusher and uses them to gain advantage. Gets arm extension, finds running back and looks to shed against gap running plays. As a junior, rushed passer from both ends and over the nose while also dropping into space on occasion. Can be a disruptive player when asked to play the gaps. Has ability to slip and go when rushing from inside position








#3282136 Trent Richardson cut

Y'all really wouldn't bring him in to compete as a RB3? Really?

Bruh you know incompetent Huddlers can not understand logic..

#3281776 Raiders in discussions with Greg Hardy

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 13 March 2015 - 07:20 AM

I agree. Let's not act like Hardy was a cancer in the locker room because he wasn't. Actually it was quite the opposite.

If he was a locker room cancer Ron Rivera would have dealt with him. Hardy was the enforcer on the defense and this will be missed.

#3267913 Prospect Meetings By Position. 2015 Edition.

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 07 March 2015 - 04:51 PM

Last season I made a thread cataloging the prospects the Panthers met with, sorted by position. link.

Thanks to the help of everyone, it went pretty well and we had a pretty extensive list.

From that list, we drafted: KB, Ealy, Turner. Also signed Philly Brown.

Obviously it's not going to be 100% but it does give a good idea of who the Panthers are targeting or positon areas of emphasis.

So with that said, I'll start this year's list with the combine about to go in full swing.

Garret Grayson, Colorado State (Senior Bowl)


Zach Zenner, South Dakota State (Shrine Game)
John Crocket, North Dakota State (Shrine Game)

John Miller, Louisville (Shrine Game)


Cedric Ogbuehi, Texas A&M (Combine)
Ty Sambrailo, Colorado State (Senior Bowl)
La'el Collins, LSU (Combine)
Ereck Flowers, Miami (Combine)

DJ. Humphries, Florida (Private & On Campus)

Jamison Crowder, Duke (Senior Bowl)
Jordan Taylor, Rice (Shrine Game)

Wes Saxon, South Alabama (Shrine Game)



Leterrius Walton, Central Michigan (Shrine Game)



Justin Coleman, Tennessee (Shrine Game)
D'Joun Smith, Florida Atlantic (Senior Bowl)
Damian Swann, Georgia (Shrine Game)
Steven Nelson, Oregon State (Senior Bowl)

Kevin Johnson, Wake Forest (Combine & Pro Day)

Deshazor Everett, Texas A&M (Pro Day)


*Private = a visit by the prospect to the team' facilities. No work out allowed.
*On Campus = a private workout with member(s) of the team anywhere but Charlotte(usually on the prospect's campus)


They were also at MSSTATE pro, probably looking at DE Preston Smith , LB/ S Mathew Wells, LB Mickenly

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 18 February 2015 - 07:55 PM

I agree that it was a gross overestimation of the capabilities of the OL by the Panthers front office.

I said time and time again during camp the Panthers would certainly bring in at least one veteran tackle. Afterall, Cam was taking sack upon sack in camp if he was allowed to be hit.

I was wrong.

You seem dead set that Hardy will never return ... What kind if crows are you going to eat if your wrong ?

#3240519 Some 2nd-Later Round DL prospects to take notice of

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 13 February 2015 - 07:56 AM

Given DG's DL emphasis, I thought it'd be interesting to take note of a few guys that fit our scheme we may fall for in the draft process:


Za'Darius Smith DE Kentucky

6'6' 265


Probably my favorite 4-3 DE prospect in this draft for us.  He could be a 3rd round grab and a strong addition to our defense. 


Preston Smith DE Miss St.

6'6' 270


This guy is a well rounded player and team leader...has some fixable awareness issues.  I think he would be an interesting add to our rotation at 1, 3, and 5 tech.  Some think he's more of a 3-4 interior, but put him behind CJ and he could learn a lot in a hybrid role.  


Xavier Cooper DT Wash St.


If we just get one of D'wan or Cole back (which is what at the most happens IMO), we're going to need a new rotational DT and Cooper fits the bill with potential as a starter down the road.  He reminds me of a more raw Fletcher Cox. 




--Feel free to mention guys you would consider as well. 



Preston Smith played in a 4-3 scheme like our and he would be a perfect fit for us. He has length and speed for outside rush but is excellent on run blocking also.

I'd argue CB is the hardest to play, but it is certainly debatable 



#3198872 No reason to be ashamed of losing in Seattle...

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 11 January 2015 - 07:46 PM

You can't dwell in the past either.  Acknowledging the obstacles that made building this team difficult is real world stuff.  I understand what football is about, but saying "we gonna pound them" and "you can't lose 5 times"  is rather obvious and pointless, in my opinion. 2015 is all that matters.


I know we have to look forward but we gotta learn from the past, so we don't repeat the same scenario......

#3196965 No reason to be ashamed of losing in Seattle...

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 11 January 2015 - 10:22 AM

Better teams have gone into Seattle and been ran out of the place. The Panthers played a good game, and made it interesting until the 4th quarter. The defense played very well, with a few mishaps on 3rd down.

You guys have nothing to hang your heads about. Congrats on a good season, a playoff win for this team, and the first back to back division titles in NFCS history.

Here's to a more competitive NFCS in 2015.



Actually we should be ashamed, losing to a team 5 time in a row with the same self destruction is not acceptable. If you want to be a champion in the NFL you don't fear anything and no task is to big in the moment. Next season better be ass whopin of lifetime in Seattle.

#3181644 Hot Routes?

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 05 January 2015 - 09:13 PM

As an aside and not to start a thread and get this on Seattle's radar.
Dickson WILL be the X factor. I expect a lot of two te looks in the red zone. Let KB and or Dickson go up and get it. File this away.


We need to use more 2 TE set against their physical DBs  and pound them inside with J-Stew. Install the run game and use playaction, inside crosses and short dump offs  for long consuming drives. Slam it in or roll out with Cam for TDs. 


Defense 3 and out = party like it 1999! :cam:
