#3094205 Amini Silatolu

Posted by CelticCat on 17 November 2014 - 09:50 PM

Every time that I think of Amini, I think of Alshon Jeffery.


Just highlights Hurneys stupidity. Jeffery going bonkers weekly in the SEC in your own back yard is sitting there like a gift in round 2. Remember that cute story about Hurney watching Amini tape and dreaming how lucky it would be to have this wonderfull D2 prospect?

#3072058 Over the last 3 weeks, Mike Shula's offense has averaged less points...

Posted by CelticCat on 07 November 2014 - 06:04 PM

But who was the D getting 3 and outs and makng a short field?!?!




Or you could look at it like which O put the D in bad situations. Which had the most turnovers? How many pick 6's did Cam throw under Chud compared to Shula? Cam actually improved as a passer under Shula.


Chud went on to become the HC of the Browns, abandoned the run game and got promptly fired. The Browns are now winning thanks to refocusing on the run game. And for the record it was the strong run game in 2011 that scewed the Panthers offensive ranking. We were only an average passing team under Chud, which I'll admit is better than where we now stand but that is largely based on philosophy and talent.


I get that Shula is conservative and not everybodys cup of tea but the talent level simply isn't good enough on O today. Too many UDFA's and over the hill players and the guys with talent are all fighting for the same spot (RB) and none of them can stay healthy enough to develop any kind of rhythm.

Might want to start dropping the "bust" possibility too. 6 games in, 400 yards, 4 TD and 21 First downs. He has effectively assumed the #1WR role.

Marques Colston was the last NFL rookie WR to have a 1000 yard season in 2006.


Keenan Allen

Remember that 4th down bullet pass to Benji on 4th and short. That's is all you need to know about our OC's faith in Cam as a passer.

All 3 are simply great QB's. To argue otherwise is petty.


Seattle are very well coached and are loaded with talent, they have had the better team and coaching over their careers so far IMO. The way they call plays there really help Wilson be extremely efficient.


Can you imagine what Luck or Cam in Seattle would look like? They'd be just as dominant as they are with Wilson, maybe even more.

#2995957 Something minor but interesting to note (Receivers)

Posted by CelticCat on 03 October 2014 - 03:11 PM

Lets not judge a QB by what he does against woefull teams like the Jags and Titans. I thought Kirk Cousins taught us that last week.


Luck's a good QB but I'm not impressed by stat padding against historically woefull teams. There is literally no other QB's in that division to even challenge him. Bortles has potential but that team is still years away.


To start extrapolating stats after 4 games is retarded.

Scott had Terrell McClain's disease. He spends way too much time on the ground.


King gets lost in the numbers, hopefully he makes the practice squad.


Got to find upgrades for Thomas and Russell. Can't tell me King didn't have a better preseason than those two.

#2897292 Ealy is not the next Everette...he can play

Posted by CelticCat on 18 August 2014 - 05:57 PM

wait....someone was calling him the next everette brown?


No, I think Jeremy noted his spin moves early in camp reminded him of Everette and everyone went all OH NOES, HE'S A BUST.

96 really flashed out there for me too, we're really deep at DE. Horton, he was in early too.

#2874716 Anybody watching the HOF game tomorrow?

Posted by CelticCat on 03 August 2014 - 01:12 AM

I want to see what Watkins can do. Damn to think if we had kept up the pace of our first 4 games last year we could have him instead of KB. I don't typically wish for young players to do poorly but I would be okay with him turning out to be merely mediocre, while KB becomes the next superstar WR.


I'm fine with having KB over Watkins. We all know what a talent Watkins is but I'll be damned if I didn't spend a chunk of last year watching college FB and thinking how awesome it would be if Cam had that monster of a WR from FSU as a weapon. What do you know/ it actually happened. I'm kinda in shock we have Star and Kelvin the last 2 drafts, its like a dream.


I mean, the last 4 first rounders that are going to shape this team have been epic. That 2011 draft was littered with greats but we've kept on churning them out. Cam, Keek, Star and now Benjamin, damn I love the Panthers.

The Bills are a pretty young offensive team, Manuel, Glenn, Cyrus, Watkins, Woods, Goodwin, Spiller. Add in a couple a favorite vets like Woods, the trio of Williams, Chandler and Searcy and I kinda like that team. Especially since I hate the Pats so much. I actually feel kinda bad they lost Kiko.


The Giants, not so much, I'm not too fond of any other NFC team. I assume OBJ is still out.

Olsen goes to ground making sideline catch in 7-7. Guy practices as hard or harder than any offensive player #PanthersTC



ESPN threw up a sideline catch graphic last week. Olsen was 4th overall in the entire NFL. The 3 guys above him were all WR's.


#2865673 Why did you become a Panther fan?

Posted by CelticCat on 26 July 2014 - 01:44 PM

Started following the NFL when it first aired on british television in 1983.
Different teams shown every week, so didn't really follow a team liked Riggins and Darrell Green of the redskins
and Bo Jackson and Marcus Allen of the Raiders.

Decided to follow the Panthers the day the Frachise was announced - (luckily Jacksonville was granted later).

Used to follow the games on play by play on NFL.com.

Now usually get a stream of Panthers games if they are not on T.V. Don't like late games as we are 5 hours ahead


Channel 4 baby.


I remember those days too. I grew up a Miami fan with Marino, Duper and Clayton leading the way. I remember after they lost to the 49ers in the SB that I had found the team I hated the most too LOL. Having learned more about the game and being a sucker for the underdog I slowly began rooting for another team in the NFC west. Don't hate me for this guys but I became a fan of the Saints and the Dome Patrol led by a Mr Sam Mills. I would later visit America and the Superdome was the first stadium these eyes ever saw. We just drove by it but I remember being in awe of it. It looked like a space ship to me.

Later on while visiting NC I went into a sports store, at the time obviously the Panthers didn't exist but hanging in front of me as I walked in was a NO Saints 57 jersey. Rickey Jacksons jersey, the sack monster of the Dome Patrol. That right there was my first NFL purchase.


2 years later I would move to America in 94, Raleigh. 1 year later the Panthers came along and Bam, there you have it. I remember to this day being at work and checking out the paper when the expansion draft went down and seeing who we picked up, a bunch of hasbeens and never wases. Having the Panthers in the same division as the 9ers and Saints just made it even more special. Its been nothing but the men in black and blue for me ever since. I like many felt it was a team made specially for me. Getting to watch this team start from scratch has been awesome. I can honestly say I was there when I tell the grandkids years from now.

#2865647 Now it's 2-4 weeks with Stewart

Posted by CelticCat on 26 July 2014 - 01:16 PM

I'm still a bit miffed we spent the 13th overall pick on a rb when offensive tackle was the far bigger need, we'd just drafted Deangelo in the first, and we could've drafted a running back later.  Of course, that would probably have meant we got Otah at 13, and I don't know that that's any easier a pill to swallow, but our cap wouldn't be sodomized by two players who probably won't be on the team in two years.  Ugh.  I still hate you, Marty Hurney.


I believe Clady was the unanimous want for T that year. He went one spot ahead of Stu. I was really high on a RB out of Tulane that year. A guy by the name of Forte. He eventually was drafted in the second round by Chicago, exactly 1 spot after the pick we gave up to trade for Otah. Now, Otah was great his 1st year here but unfortunately injuries happen.


Its interesting to see what could have been with a little bit more fortune. We could have had Clady and Forte. Duane Brown was also drafted after Otah. However the Bears also drafted Chris Williams with their 1st rounder right after Stu and he was a bust for them. Swings and roundabouts my friend.


What is also a kick in the nuts is that the Eagles were able to parlay the 1st rounder given up for Otah into Jason Peters, one of the best T's in the league today. They didn't do much with the 2nd rounder tho.


Sometimes as an armchair GM I sit back and wonder what this team would look like if I was the guy pulling strings. I wanted McNair and George over Collins and Biak. I wanted Jeffery instead of Amini, I wanted Allen after Star fell to us in round 1 even tho I loved KK too.


Can you imagine if we had Jeffery, Allen and Benjamin as our WR's this year? It would probably kill us cap wise in the future but at least they are great players unlike some of the stiffs we pay for underperforming.
