#3177562 Rivera, a shot at coach of year?

Posted by chris999 on 04 January 2015 - 02:16 PM

I ont think that 7 (8 so far) wins are good enough for CotY, but it is facsinating to me how many people love our defense and the players drafted under rivera and our physicality and everything our team has become over the past two years, but then turn around and want to fire Rivera and 'roll the dice' on some guy that could be a loser and set our franchise back5 or ten years.


We have just won a playoff game for the first time in 9 years. We have a francise QB, and elite defense, and a pretty good running game. We have an open window to win a superbowl... yet some people would throw it all away for a new coach who would dismantle our team and start us over. 


Rivera has imroved every season he has been here in some way or another. Sure, he regressed from a 12-4 seaon as far as season wins, but yesterday we won a playoff game, which we didnt do last year.


I am starting to run on and on, but people only seem to focus on Rivera's mistakes instead of what he has done right for this team. When Rivera got here, Jimmy Classen was our QB and we had a 1-15 season and the media never even talked about us at all. Everything has changed for the better since then.

#3162905 Will Derek Anderson be a Panther next year?

Posted by chris999 on 29 December 2014 - 07:02 PM

I like having a capable backup due to Cam's playing style. 


I would take no less than a 1st for him. He is a QB that can throw for 300 yards a game, and would probably be a starter on 10 or 12 teams in this league. 


As long as he likes it in Charlotte, I hope he stays.

Not to be an ass, but Memorial day is to remember the fallen...


Veterans have their own holiday later in the year.



#2799372 Cam's new weapons

Posted by chris999 on 25 May 2014 - 12:07 AM

I agree kinda...


I think we would be foolish to think that our o-line is as good as it was last year. It will be much worse. You cant let your franchise probowl left tackle retire and not replace him.


Other than that, spot on.


Most of the carolina steve smith fans (as oppossed to actual fans of the team) are still living in the Jake Delhomme/John Fox era of 'feed the stud' where you through a jump ball to Smith every other play. 


Cam changed the game in Carolina. We have a franchise QB that actually spreads the ball around instead of throwing hail marys at Smith all day.


Cam is elite when it comes to spreading the ball around in the passing game... so he needs more than one WR. Smith making 20 bajillion dollars a year was an impediment to bringing the other peices of the puzzle that Cam needs to get us a lombardi.

#2736048 Trade Up For MIKE EVANS?

Posted by chris999 on 11 April 2014 - 09:18 AM

I dont think we will trade up... but if we do it will probably be for a LT, not a WR.

#2731065 The Charlotte Panthers? Come on, Joe.

I swear ol' Joe types with his butt cheeks.

haha. I did too.

#2714504 So Cam's ankle injury dates back to Auburn...

Posted by chris999 on 24 March 2014 - 12:31 PM

just imagine if he had been 100%...






That was great blocking by Smith there too...


Oh well, carry on.

#2697074 Panther's in talks with Lafell

Posted by chris999 on 14 March 2014 - 11:42 PM

Dumb move...


Ginn is the one we should have kept. 


He was a speedster and a great returner, and his stock is still rising, while LaFell... We have already seen his ceiling, and it isnt much to brag about. 


He is a below average WR3 in this league.


If we pay more than 1 million per year, I will be pissed.

#2683751 the reason behind all of this BS happening is...

Posted by chris999 on 11 March 2014 - 01:08 PM

I agree.


I feel sorry for Gettelman as he will be blamed for all of this, yet he is just having to clean up the mess that Hurney made. 


I think in the end we will be a better team because of Gettleman. He is more concerned with the product on the field than the loyalty of fan favorites. 



I dont like Smith leaving, but if Hurney had not screwed us with Big Money, Deangelo and Stewart's contracts, we wouldnt have to cut the dead weight so sharply.

#2647226 Better player: Charles Johnson or Greg Hardy?

Posted by chris999 on 08 February 2014 - 09:06 PM

I think they are about equal honestly.


CJ is bigger and a little stronger, and Hardy is faster. Sinilar results, different methods.

#2646886 Jordan Gross is a free agent this year

Posted by chris999 on 08 February 2014 - 02:26 PM

Who is the young talent we can fill in for Gross? We better hope he returns,


I hope he returns at a reasonable price. I think he will, and I think the FO thinks he will too, so that is the reason they let it come to this point. As a way to negotiate with him.



Worst case scenario if he leaves is that we find his replacement (and or RT as well) of the future at a very muchreduced rate considering the rookie cap is in place. Left Tackle is one of the highest paid positions on the field, so to lock one in with a multiple year single digit million dollar contract relaves lots of cap space verses the salary of a 4 or 5 time probowl Left tackle such as Gross.


I hope we can brng him back for 2 more years while our championship contender 'window' is wide open, and go ahead and draft a guy at RT to replce Bell and possibly Gross afterwards. Either way, we need an offensive tackle now, and another when Gross leaves. Go ahead and pick the best one availible this spring and use it as a negotiation tactic when dealing with Gross. Football is cuthroat capitalism. When the good of the team is at stake, sometimes you have to separate feelings from the equation. No matter what happens, Gross will go down as one of the top Panthers.

#2613735 Question on Hardy

Posted by chris999 on 13 January 2014 - 06:58 PM

Yes, he is very good against the run. But highly paid DE's are paid that for sacks. There are lots of good run stopping DE's out there, who typically make less.


But the fact that Hardy excells at both rus stopping and QB pressure makes him even much better. CJ is also the same, good at both pressure and against the run.


That means that when both bookends are on the field, our Defense can defend well against anything. 


I would say that we are probably the only team in the league that both of our starting DEs are good against both the run and pass. That is a big reason why our D is so good.

#2611362 Fudge it....Trade up for Sammy watkins.

you've noticed........


i only come back to remind you that cam's not the future


Well, your an idiot.

#2604627 if cam threw 4ints in a game

Posted by chris999 on 12 January 2014 - 12:23 AM

Andrew Luck is more like Bret Favre than like Manning. 




Plus the media is trying to back up what the said about Luck and Newton pre-Draft.


Newton was the immature scam guy with the fake smile... and they are trying so hard to redeem themselves for what they said about him. Now that we are winning and they see that it isnt going to happen, they made up the whole 'mature' script that they say 27 times a game. The team knows that Cam has always been Cam, and that it is just media spin to get out of the things they said about him.



Well, the same is true about Luck. They proclaimed him the greatest QB since Peyton Manning before he was even drafted... So in order to not appear to be idiots, they must continue to write about him in a way that shows that 'they were right', "it was just (another) bad game".



I dont like riding the 'media hates Cam card', but I figured I would respond to the thread in the manner that I think is closest to the truth. It is about media and the soap opera that they try to paint the league out to be. They are just generating media buzz for link clicks.

#2603889 Russell Wilson's Hype

Posted by chris999 on 11 January 2014 - 09:52 PM

Wilson is a great QB. I would start a franchise around someone like him any day of the week.


If I was totally unbiased, I'm almost certain I'd take Wilson ahead of Cam, Luck, Kaep, RG III, etc if I was starting a franchise today.


Wilson is pretty good, I'll give you that.


Bu anyone who knows the X's and O's of football can see that Cam is clearly more talented and his game has progressed further than Wilson's has.


Wilson is still running a college style offense like Cam was doing his rookie year, and even when Cam was a rookie, he was still making NFL throws down the field that I have seen Wilson make only a couple of times.


Wilson relies more on his legs to roll out of the pocket and make plays, while Cam is more of a pocket passer who uses his legs when he needs to, but doesnt rely on his athletic ability to carry him. 


If both QBs were to have the same exact offense for a season, it would be obvious that Cam was much better, and ditto for Kaepernck's offense as well.
