#3262321 Carolina Will Select Cameron Erving With #25

Posted by Lout on 04 March 2015 - 11:05 AM

I think we go with TJ Clemmingss from Pitt if he's on the board.  Erving doesn't seem like a LT prospect.  Why put a guy from the most important position on the Oline (LT) to a less important position on an oline ©, if he's an elite prospect.  It doesn't add up for me.  Yes, he is versatile, but you don't need your LT to be versatile.. the most value he can possible give you is playing LT.

#3127737 Is Sunday a must win for Ron to keep his job?

Posted by Lout on 09 December 2014 - 05:52 PM

I could agree with all if this as a reason to give Ron a pass for the record we have if it were all there was to it.

The circumstances that forced the decisions on personnel choices I agree he gets some forgiveness on. I agree that it was Hurney's, and to some extent his, decisions that put us in a financial mess. So players had to be replaced, rightly so or not, and you get what we got with little money and limited talent available that would come here on one or two year deals. That's going to change but will take time.

What I do have an issue with is his active/starter personnel decisions and his game preparation and management. He has not improved in any of those areas in 4 years. That in itself is reason for dismissal.


I disagree that we haven't seen improvement in 4 years from Ron.  His first season, Ron was very tepid, no fire, overly cautious.  Do you think Ron would be going for it on 4th and 1 in his first year of head coach?  No way.  His clock management has also improved.


Game prep?  You can't go 12-4 without good game prep.. that season shows he is capable if we have the capable talent on the roster.  This year we are extremely young, as we lose many veterans in the offseason.


Personnel decisions?  These young guys need to develop.  Where they are now is not where they were at the beginning of the season.  He is plugging guys like Andrew Norwell, Benwikere, etc, at the appropriate time and they are making impacts.  These guys have a better understanding of the playbook now, and more than likely would have made many mistakes if they were plugged in earlier in the season.  Let's remember John Fox, who would have played the veteran at all costs, and these young rookies would have never gotten the chance to show what they were made of this season. 


I applaud Ron for the job he's done, and think he definitely deserves another shot to right the ship next season.

#3127689 Cam's preseason rib injury was worse than this

Posted by Lout on 09 December 2014 - 05:17 PM

If the Saints win out then they win the division. If the Saints lose on Sunday and we win - we then would control our own destiny with a matchup with ATL week 17 possibly deciding the division. We need a little bit of help, which is very likely considering the Saints suck too.


Cool, I can't imagine the saints will beat both the Bears and the Falcons the next 2 weeks.

#3127467 Cam has 2 transverse fractures in lower back

Posted by Lout on 09 December 2014 - 03:43 PM

how can Romo have had the exact same injury? was he also in an accident where his truck rolled over 3 or 4 times?


Romo also had 2 transverse fractures in his lower back.  Assuming Cam's 2 vertabrae aren't shattered, the rehab is the same.  Their is little to no risk of damaging the spinal cord or making the injury worse.

#3127391 Cam has 2 transverse fractures in lower back

Posted by Lout on 09 December 2014 - 03:29 PM

This is the best possible back injury you can have.  Cam will be back after the Bucs game.  Romo had the exact same injury earlier this season.  So did Baylor QB Bryce Petty, and they both sat out 1 game.  Great news.

#3115297 Mike Remmers - Perfect Pass Blocking Grade

Posted by Lout on 02 December 2014 - 11:35 AM



Sorry if already posted, but I don't see it.


Hopefully he can keep it up against the Saints.

#3002784 Need to go at least 6-5 the rest of the way to go 9-7 & possibly win NFCS...

Posted by Lout on 06 October 2014 - 01:06 PM

It would be great to get 2 winning season's in a row, for the first time in our franchise's history.

#2898635 Trai Turner= This year's Larry Warford?

Posted by Lout on 19 August 2014 - 04:51 PM

Larry Warford, was that stud from Kentucky.. he was a massive run blocking OG that wasn't very athletic, but you couldn't move him.  Ideally fit for a power run scheme.  I wanted him in the 2nd round last year.  Trai Turner is more athletic, and not as strong as Larry.

#2776835 Day 3 Draft thread

Posted by Lout on 10 May 2014 - 12:22 PM

Antonio Richardson or Laurent Tardif would be a solid pick.

There is no value in a WR right now.

Desir, Roberson, Raashad Reynolds, or Exum are good CB picks.

Brock Vereen, Craig loston are good safety prospects.

#2775595 Gettleman wants to grab a corner tommorow

Posted by Lout on 09 May 2014 - 11:02 PM

McGill and Desir are available... Gaines was taken.


I think we also like Robert Herron from Wyoming... he's a Smitty clone.



#2772607 Who do YOU want tonight?

Posted by Lout on 09 May 2014 - 03:49 PM

I think the following WRs will be on the board at #60.  I wouldn't mind taking the BPA.  But, I'd love Allen Robinson or Latimer if they happen to fall.


1. Dante Moncrief

2. Davante Adams

3. Jarvis Landry

4. Jordan Matthews


OT possibilities:

1. Antonio Richardson

2. Jack Mewhort

3. Billy Turner

4. Cameron Fleming (Stanford)


CB possibilities:

1. Keith McGill

2. Marcus Roberson

3. Bashaud Breeland

4. Phillip Gaines (Rice)


But I'd like to wait until Round 3 for a CB.. I think we'd have a shot at Desir and Purifoy.

#2766244 Potential Trade up to 19th Overall w/Miami

Posted by Lout on 07 May 2014 - 11:56 PM

Doesn't seem like Gettleman's style


I agree completely.  While I'd love either Cooks or Lee on the team.. giving up a 2nd or 3rd rounder is too rich for the extensive needs that we have on this team.

#2757509 Will the Panthers draft a quarterback?

Posted by Lout on 30 April 2014 - 08:55 PM

Good topic Mr. Scot. I have also noticed the in-house QB visits as well, and have thought about whom we might take later in the draft.  I have 5-6 viable candidates. 


5th-6th Round - Aaron Murray and Logan Thomas

Logan Thomas is a poor man's Cam Newton.  He's built the same physically, ay 6'6" 250lbs, with immense potential, but he's very very raw.

Aaron Murray could be a steal.. reminds me of Russell Wilson a bit.


7th Round-UFA -

Garret Gilbert - he was the top QB high school recruit in the nation 4 years ago, and committed to Texas before transferring to Ole Miss.  High potential.

Connor Shaw - USC

Taj Boyd - Clemson

Stephen Morris - Miami


I like most of these guys because they have some mobility, winners in college, and great stats.  A few of these guys have small measurable's which could be hurting their stock.


I have to think one of these men listed will be in camp with us this year.

#2547952 Rivera going for it on 4th and 2 from the 15, up 10

Posted by Lout on 16 December 2013 - 11:26 AM

Loved the decision.  Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.  Defense was playing well.. and left the Jets offense back on their own 20.  No problems.

#2523857 Hottest Panther Fan in National Media?

Posted by Lout on 02 December 2013 - 04:16 PM

I saw her on the screen briefly. She was with Justin Long? I wonder why they were there.


Yes, she is fine.


They have been dating for a few months.  Yes, I am ashamed to know that...
