#3245916 Vikings GM; We expect AP to return. What universe is domestic abuse worse tha...

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...

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:

#3169528 Theoretical Super Bowl Question

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 02 January 2015 - 05:31 PM

Ok, this is really random but this thought randomly popped into my head when going to sleep last night. .. Let's say that the Carolina Panthers are in the super bowl this year... Would you rather face the New England Patriots in a Super Bowl XXXVIII rematch and get back at the Pats & Brady or would you rather face the Baltimore Ravens & Steve Smith who has done nothing but trash talk the Carolina Panthers organization since he left, and beat Smitty in the Super Bowl? Idk why I had this thought last night but it interested me to see what you guys think. I for one would like to face the Ravens, I just think it would be a great story & would be nice to stick it to Smith for all the trash talk about the Panthers organization since his release.

Patriots , and crush their dreams with Brady / Belechick era

#3093046 Request: Panthers's Upcoming FAs

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 17 November 2014 - 10:57 AM

Yes.  But he also strikes me as a loose cannon.


Pinning your hopes on guys like that is often a huge risk (as this season illustrates).



This guy here............My friend just look at the 49rs and Aldon Smith situatio, who has multiple altercation and yet they are committed to him. Why, because he is a difference maker on the defense if you want to win. Hardy is even more important to us in 4-3 and we should reach cap friend multi-year deal.

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 16 November 2014 - 04:16 PM

The kicker missed a potential game winning field goal, so you can disagree with me all you want, but he lost the game at that point.


Ye but when we had 1st down instead of playing to move the chain we run 3 dumb ass run plays ......If we get the 1st down then and we eat the clock out and end with either a TD or FG with 5 secs left

#3073474 So who still believes in the Panthers this season?

I'm hoping this is the comeback and we glide into the playoffs !

Give me Norwell and Turner next year.

#3047973 Seattle defense played a whole lot of a 3-4 Sunday

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 27 October 2014 - 07:39 AM

It seems the word is out on the Panthers offense. Easily shut down with a 3-4 look.


Going back over the game, they are in a 3-4 maybe even the majority of the time. On the last two drives, they stayed in it for the entire time. Bruce Irvin was making Byron Bell look pretty terrible. Byron barely gets a hand on him before Irvin sacks Cam in the final possession.



It is a copy cat league folks. We will continue to see plenty of 3-4 even from base 4-3 defenses like Seattle for the rest of the season. Why? Because it works. The Panthers still have zero answers for it.


Why are  we not using the 2 TE set with olsen, williams, & dickson.  We need to throw more short and intermediate routes to have manageable 3r & 4th downs. We are also missing Tolbert's short-yardage and leadership. 

#3032750 Telling stat

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 20 October 2014 - 10:14 AM

I know, the defense is awful. But....



Panthers average only 6 points in the first 3 quarters of play against 3-4 defenses. Average 17 points against 4-3 defenses in those quarters.



I have said since Pittsburgh that the 3-4 is the death of our offensive line. Some say that outlook is too simple. I am still convinced its not.



To beat a 3-4 defense you have to run the ball effectively early on to stop all the blitz & rushers they are sending..............We never really had  a chance to establish a run game with early blowouts.............Ron Rivera needs to stop deferring the ball to 2nd half since the defense is no where near what it used to be...........The strength of the team is Cam & Offense and they need to set example for the games.

Stewart also looked good, he was fighting for every yard...........We never really had a chance to establish the run game, but will need it for Seattle
