#3320548 NFC South Team: only 4 scouts evaluate a 1st R pick before Combine

Love the BSG reference.  Although if Adama was coach of this team we'd be running away from our problems for 4 seasons before luckily winning a Superbowl.  Hey wait....



Hey now, he did have to take a huge risk in the middle there to save everyone from New Caprica.  A risk that involved sacrificing their best weapon, Battlestar Pegasus.  Kinda like cutting Steve Smith!  :blink:

#3310867 Rotoworld: Panthers Team Needs and Mock Draft

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 03 April 2015 - 10:25 AM

Don't like Flowers, McBride or Hackett. The rest is fine. I just don't think Flowers' game tape warrants a 1st rounder. His measurable are off the chart but the game isn't played in underwear. I like McBride, but in the 4th. Rather have Hardy than him. Rather have Geathers than Hackett too.


While I agree that as a fan, I always prefer picks that have great game tape for me to salivate over, I also understand why NFL teams can be so infatuated with a player's measureables.  These players are still kids.  Most drafted players are between 20 and 22.  A large number of the ones picked early may have played as few as 4-6 seasons of competitive football.  Some even fewer.  That's just not enough time to fully master all the nuances of the game.  Particularly when you factor in that many of them have had coaches that just aren't that great.  There really aren't enough quality coaches to cover 32 NFL teams, hundreds of college teams, and tens of thousands of high schools.  So from an NFL front office's perspective, they gotta believe that the coaches on THEIR staff are gonna be able to get a more polished game out of these kids, because the coaches on the NFL level are quite likely the best coaches these kids have ever had.  


So when a kid like Flowers shows up and puts up monster numbers while having inconsistent game tape, he's shown all these NFL scouts that he has the best physical tools you can ask for, making his ceiling much higher than guys like Fischer, for instance.  The risk is, of course, that maybe this guy will always be inconsistent on game day.  Being on the field is a whole different animal than working out in shorts.  But he's only been doing this for a few years.  The bet is that he'll improve and you'll have yourself a genuine thoroughbred to just dominate the competition. 

#3305813 My Ultimate BPA Pipe-Dream 1-5 Round Mock Draft

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 30 March 2015 - 04:26 PM

If Gurley's there in the first we take him and Stew's gone even if he gets 2200 yards, 20 TDs and is healthy for all 19 games. If we don't get him and no other RB is BPA in the first 3 rounds then maybe we'd keep him if he has an outstanding year and is healthy, but only if he'll take a fair deal. Would have to take a pay cut for 2016 and then extend him on a reasonable deal. I love Stew but he doesn't have a lot of time left.


Guess it depends on how highly Gettleman views Gurley.  If he thinks he's a massive steal at #25, then I don't doubt he'd pull the trigger.  But I think there's too much risk with Gurley's injury history for that to be the case.

#3305810 on paper, our new RB Jordan Todman is an upgrade over Fozzy

Touchdowns in the playoffs:


Fozzy - 1

Todman - Jaguars lol

#3216882 No matter how hard I try, I just cant hate the Patriots.

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 22 January 2015 - 11:10 AM

No we didn't.  We were using steroids. And how do you know they weren't filming our workouts then? 



I guess I don't know for sure.  But they still beat us on the field.  We shot ourselves in the foot at the end.  Can't blame them for that.

#3216861 No matter how hard I try, I just cant hate the Patriots.

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 22 January 2015 - 10:58 AM

I might be in the super minority here, but I don't hate either the Patriots or the Seahawks.  I'll always hold a bit of a grudge against them because of the Superbowl.  But we lost fair and square.  It happens.  I'm jealous of their success, and I dislike the Pats fans that take it for granted.  But I don't particularly dislike anyone in their organization.  And this "deflate-gate" scandal is just something I can't be bothered to care about.  I've tried, but I just can't do it.


The Seahawks, on the other hand, have always been my second favorite team because I have a lot of family in the Seattle area.  I do admit though that all the obnoxious media coverage and their insufferably uninformed bandwagon fans have made me like them less, and it was never like I really rooted for them hard to begin with.  But I also like them because none of that is the team's fault.  People who call Russell Wilson fake are just the epitome of haters.  Call his game overrated, sure.  You can make a substantial argument for that (one that I agree with).  But to call him fake as a person is just talking out of your ass.  Plus when you add in the fact that their team has a really similar makeup to ours, I think that bodes well for our future, and I look forward to the day that we knock them off their perch.

#3203553 Hardy's Heart is in Carolina

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 13 January 2015 - 05:02 PM

I honestly think it's irresponsible of all these sports writers to be dismissing Greg Hardy as gone like it's an absolute certainty, Voth included.  There has been literally nothing said by the team about him since September.  Unless they have some information we don't, all these guys are just speculating based on assumptions and calling it fact.

Good for Kony!  He really turned it on towards the end of the year after a slow start.  But now that I think about it, there weren't really any outstanding rookie pass rushers this year, at least in terms of results, were there?  Maybe the Kony pick will turn out to be the biggest steal of the draft like we all thought it might be.

#3203014 RR: OC Shula did a good job at end of the season

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 13 January 2015 - 12:31 PM

Oh no.  He didn't do that much better.  I still seen Cotchery screen passes happening even last game.  


That's genius though!  They'll never expect you to throw a screen to the old, slow receiver!

#3182524 Who thinks we'll actually beat Seattle on Saturday?

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 06 January 2015 - 11:15 AM

I see a dominant win, not on the score sheet, but at the LOS.

14-3 gag Seattle.



First Touchdown:  Long pass into the endzone, Kelvin Benjamin outjumps Sherrod Martin and Kam Chancellor to come down with the TD.  Celebrates by taking 3 long steps and passing the ball between his legs on each one.  Then he takes a knee and puts 1 finger to his facemask to shush the crowd.


Second Touchdown:  Panthers at the goal line, we were stuffed at the line on 1st down.  We threw an incomplete fade route on 2nd down.  3rd down we toss the ball to Stewart.  He gets met in the backfield.  But he shakes the defender!  He keeps going right and fights through another tackle! He's running out of real estate as 3 Seahawks converge on him pushing him towards the sideline.  He stretches the ball out just before he's pushed out of bounds, and he got it!  TD Panthers!

#3177384 Someone Finally "Gets" Cam Newton

Posted by Servant of Cthululelei on 04 January 2015 - 01:04 PM

Deion Sanders was one of my favorite players for that exact reason.  He knew how to have fun.  That's why I like watching Cam play, he's a very similar personality.



And that's why I think Deion Sanders is such a big fan of Cam too.

#3177355 Tre Boston looking legit

As far as NFL talent, and recruiting elite prospects - UNC is #1 in the state. That's not an opinion. That's one thing Fedora seems to at least comprehend. There's a lot of former UNC players (especially Butch Davis recruits) in the NFL. Some of them have not lived up to their VHT expectations, but they still got a great opportunity.


No one is going to confuse UNC football with FSU football, Ohio State FB, Bama, or even Clemson FB...but as far as recruiting, exposure, and $$$ are concerned....UNC sits at the head of the table in the state of North Carolina. 


Which is why it's so frustrating to see all of this talent come to UNC and Fedora fart around and win 6 games each year and manage to lose to a state rival with a sociopathic fanbase to end the season and get blown out by another in state school that doesn't even sniff the recruiting and resources pool that UNC has. 



Can you take your UNC knob-slobbering to another forum please?  This one is supposed to be about the Panthers.

With all due respect, I think I'm still going to brush it off.
