Topics I've Started

Really like what Dave is building

04 May 2015 - 02:31 PM

We are 3 year in with DG and some things are becoming apparent. This team has a identity, its a Offense that grinds time and scores points, then its a Defense that attacks and causes turnovers. Both help each other out and both are Physical, punch you in the mouth and laugh as you bleed squads. Funchess and Shaq were perfect picks for this team and its style of play. No only does Carolina now have 4 imposing receivers to catch the ball imagine how teams dbs are going to feel when KB and Funchess start blocking them. Stewart will have a wall of blockers inside and out to run behind. Then you think oh well we will just bring a LB/SS in and thats when Ginn is going to make you pay. No LB/SS is going to keep up with Ginn and no DB is going to out muscle KB and Funchess, everyone say it MISMATCH. Honestly I could talk about mismatches all day with this offense but lets just say Shula better nut up because he has weapons now to do almost anything.

 

 

Now to defense. Was Shaq a luxury pick? sure but its a luxury im glad we got and will have down the road. What can this kid not do honestly? I really see him splitting time with another LB his first year because of learning curve and weight but he is still going to make big plays because thats just what he does. Its almost crazy to think of his scoring potential with the ball in his hand. He was a good RB in collage and now think of WRs and RBs trying to tackle him running down the field. Crazy huh? Add him to a defense that can already shut down any Offense without his help and you have a making for one exciting unit. After Shaq lets not for get we added a Vet in Tillman who may be old but his savvy and can create turnovers when give the chance and UDFAs like Brian Blechen and Garry Peters who make plays and play smart and you also have a next man up attitude.

 

I just cant say enough of how important it is to have a GM that can give this to you and how Carolina has never had this. 6 years from now expect us to be doing the same thing with a few SBs to talk about because teams that draft well and play well win SBs.

 

 

 


So Cotchery is signed to a 5yr deal?

11 January 2015 - 01:27 AM

After looking up the numbers I didnt realize that Dave gave him a 5 year deal. One could say that was a mistake :unsure:  how things have panned out. Any cap experts that can shed some light to his and Harpers deal?


Observation of Wildcard Weekend

04 January 2015 - 11:05 PM

After watching wildcard weekend two things are clear.

 

1. Our offense is just as good as any playoff team in the NFC except maybe Green Bay.

 

2. Whoever makes it to the SB is going to face a AFC team that is really good in all phases. They are just so much better than the NFC this year on a talent level. 

 

3. Dallas will be a warmup game for whoever faces Green Bay. Without some questionable calls Dallas would have been destroyed by Detroit.

 

4. The Bengals and Cardinals are clearly why we dont need to expand the playoffs. They had no business being in the playoffs in the first place and adding more of these teams would just water down something special.


Why I think the Panthers hold all the Cards.

02 January 2015 - 09:31 AM

Here is my list to why we hold all the cards.

1. Short week
2. Rain
3.Offence
4.Defence
5. Experience


A Short Week
As we all have heard there is no place like home and that statement can't be any more true than on a short week. We hold all the cards because we have more time to prepare and rest while the Cardinals have to be in Charlotte by today.

Rain
The panthers have come use to playing one game in the rain each season and the the Cardinals are use to a dome.

Offence
The Cardinals are limping into the playoffs with there 3rd string QB and a suspect line while the Panthers line and QB are on a hot streak. We hold all the cards right there.

Defense
While AZ has one of the better defensive minds running the show we have two. Let's not forget Rivera and McDermott have been one of the better defensive combos year in and year out. Our defense will be ready to feast.

Experience
We right back in the playoffs with experience and home field advantage. The Cardinals are green and are walking into the lions den.


In conclusion we should be able to roll this team and roll into Sea with some momentum.

Just Remember JR was the one that wanted to keep Rivera.

10 November 2014 - 11:33 PM

We might have been the ones with Chip Kelly if not for JRs move to keep Rivera under all circumstances even if he was part of the old Hurney system that did not work. Now we are setting out yet another season lookng to the draft and hoping at some point the nightmare of Rivera's coach career to be over. There was a reason no one wanted him as a HC and there is a reason we are still sub .500 most seasons. JR needs to let DG take control with his own plan and see where it leads us because we are going no where like we are.
