Trading up is not taking the BPA, is it?

 

Well, they said they are going to draft a RB so obviously a pure BPA scenario isn't in affect.

 

You can still trade up and take BPA tho. I mean, that's kinda why you trade up, you value that player so much you are willing to pay extra to get him.




#3292911 Sacks + QB Hits allowed, 2014

You're gonna have a hard time convincing people who only watch the Panthers that other players in the NFL got game...even tho we had a losing record clearly our guys are the best.

 

I think its about trying to give these stats more context than saying our guys our the best. People slam Shula for being conservative but look who we have as down field threats. The year we draft Benji we cut Smitty. Our big downfield threat to stretch the field is Ginn, a guy who apparently can't catch on as a starting WR with any other team except us it seems. We simply don't have the talent at T or WR to be chucking it 40-50 times a game. Not to mention the money we've invested to RUN the ball.

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

 

Good stuff Tony. Took me awhile to figure that out though. Den only 12th, Doh.




#3278739 Boykin to Visit per Rapoport

He ran a 4.57 and 4.58 at his pro day.

 

VT does have a fast track though. Just remember that Hurney recently confessed they dropped Anquan Boldin out of the second round because of his 40 at the combine and selected Bruce Nelson instead. We all know how that worked out. 40 time isn't everything.

 

I think there's a youtube of this guy in a dunk contest at VT. He has skills for sure looking at his 2013 highlights.




#3278719 Our rookie WR had 3 of the top 100 plays of the year

Posted by CelticCat on 11 March 2015 - 11:55 PM

Cam and Olsen connection for a TD in there as well.

 

 

They aren't in yet, you gotta vote

 

 

 

vote.

 

We got screwed on that play by the refs too. Didn't get the clock stopped because the ref originally called it incomplete. Asinine.

 

But the KB catch between Sherman and Thomas was truly awesome.
 




#3277613 NFL Free Agency Update Thread

Depends on how you look at it. McCoy is big money. They turned him into kiko and maxwell. Kiko could be as good for them as Luke is to us. And they desperately needed help on the back end D. I'd value MLB and CB over RB personally.

Foles verses a healthy Bradford is no contest. While its a huge gamble because of the injury history but a QB with prospects like Bradford aren't just available. Foles was solid for them but how much of that was Kelly? I'll give Kelly the benefit of the doubt when it comes to who he wants playing QB.

I'm not saying he's buying low to save, but if a player like Alonzo was healthy and for some reason a UFA he'd command a top salary. Kelly is gambling, but I think these moves could work out for them.

 

That was a nice way Kelly put it, Kiko and Maxwell for McCoy. But what if he said Bradford for McCoy instead? They are paying Bradford more than McCoy.

 

I'm also not buying Bradford is better than Foles either. Forget the fact he has missed like 31 games in 5 years and has an 18-30 record as a starter and has one of the lowest career YPA's ever, so yeah, he's going to look more accurate throwing shorter passes. I had to chuckle when Chip called him big and strong. He has to be the frailest 240 pounder I've ever seen.

Those that are pissed and very unhappy.. honest question..

What if we snag a stud WR in the first two rounds?

he says BPA but hes drafted a need in his two drafts. Would that satisfy you?

Or are you not even thinking ahead that far because ya just want your fix now?

 

Honestly, I hope we do. None of the FA WR's left really get me excited. I could see a Crabree, Nicks or Short added but we really need to draft someone young that can grow with Cam and Benji.

 

I could see us going OT in round 1 like Collins and then someone like Sammy Coates in round 2.




#3275423 Sam Bradford + picks traded to Philly for Nick Foles

Posted by CelticCat on 10 March 2015 - 07:02 PM

How on earth did the Rams pull this trade off?

 

Not only is Bradford injury prone but he has one of the worst career YPA's of any QB in the NFL ever. Its worse than Tim Tebows FFS.

 

They literally dumped cap space, got a better and more reliable QB and got better draft picks. Truly insane.

 

 




#3270117 49ers are the reported front-runners for Torrey Smith

Posted by CelticCat on 09 March 2015 - 03:47 AM

The colts don't have to do anything big in FA because they spend the rest of their resources in every way to surround their QB with talent/ a level of comfort.

 

After Luck was drafted, they got him his college roommate who is a TE in the very next pick, his college OC, and made sure they kept Wayne.

 

Those moves ALONE is more than the Panthers have done for Newton in 4 years.

 

Of course, It doesn't help when you have the #1 pick in each round in 2011 and screw the pooch on every pick after Cam.

Plus we traded away our 2nd rounder that year too.

 

This team has had massive holes to fill, all while being cap challenged. We've put 3 of our top 4 picks on the Dline the last 2 years. Hopefully the FO admission that we need more speed is a sign of them looking at playmakers in the draft to help the O.




#3270114 Some stats and numbers that show Gettleman is wrong for not pursuing a top fl...

Posted by CelticCat on 09 March 2015 - 03:19 AM

All Im saying is a 7-8 million a year for a WR like Torrey Smith isnt something thats going to set your franchise back, its a very reasonable price

 

You think 8 mill a year for Torrey Smith is reasonable? You want to pay 8 mill a year for a guy that averages about 800 yards a season?

 

We got 500 out of Ted Ginn for about 1 mill. For 8 mill you better have more in your arsenal than deep speed.
 




#3269912 Where will DWILL go?

Posted by CelticCat on 08 March 2015 - 10:21 PM

He was not even listed on the top 50 free agent running backs on NFL.com.

 

Probably because he isn't technically a FA yet. If it wasn't for his mouth we still wouldn't be sure what was going on with him, even if the writing was on the wall.

 

Last thing Gman said publically about 34 was that they had a great meeting.

Maybe we should trade Stewart to the Philly Ducks and use the $$ to sign Spiller.

 

I know this is in jest but Spiller is getting some serious hype of late. I'm all for adding him here as depth but he is not a bell cow. What was he, the #3 RB in Buffalo last year. LOL at Eagles fans thinking he is the answer to losing McCoy. If he really declined 5mil to stay in Buffalo he's nuts.




#3261767 Eagles and Bills: Major Trade

Posted by CelticCat on 03 March 2015 - 08:31 PM

I think Buffalo fans are overrating Kiko a bunch. He started off really hot as a rookie (All 4 Ints by week 4) but he tailed off towards the end of the year and didn't even play at all last year. Not to mention the DL he played behind.

 

I get the cap implications favor Philly but the Bills clearly got the better talent IMO.




#3258775 Panthers Mock Draft Rounds 1 - 3

Posted by CelticCat on 01 March 2015 - 05:08 PM

Like the first two picks.

 

O'Leary has great hands but his 40 at the combine might drop him out of the 3rd/4th/5th rounds. That was shockingly low, not to mention his lack of height. A 3rd's a tad high for a Richie Brockel type guy. We could do better than that.
