#3304793 Was beating Atlanta worth dropping 17 selections in the draft?

While apparently Mr Scot has no knowledge of why teams passed over Dave Gettleman for GM, i can hear that you have a lot. Please enlighten us on why he never got the chance to be the GM of another team.


Why ask me these things? Heck, all I've done is thoroughly research every GM candidate we had when the job was open. What would I know? :unsure:

As to the question, Ernie Accorsi addressed that.

Gettleman is not a self promoter. You had a lot of guys who aggressively pushed themselves, got jobs and didn't live up to their hype. Meanwhile, Gettleman quietly did his job (and did it very well) and waited for his chance.

Just an FYI, one of the teams that passed on Gettleman was the Cleveland Browns, i.e. the same team that fired Bill Belichick. As I recall, they chose Phil Savage instead, and Savage was out of that job - and the NFL - within a few years. The Chiefs also passed him over for someone that wound up fired as well (I forget who) as did another team (Lions maybe).

How much you wanna bet those teams would like a 'do over' on those decisions?

And as an aside, if you ask the Giants who were the architects of the 125 page game plan they used to defeat a previously undefeated Patriots team in the Super Bowl, one of the names has the initials DG.

Bottom Line: Call me crazy, but the best stretch of drafting we've ever had plus our first ever back to back playoff appearances sounds pretty positive to me.

I guess some people just don't care about winning :lol:


#3304477 If it came down to Peat or Perriman....

Here's the important thing to me...

I've seen offenses be successful even when one of their top two receivers had a case of the dropsies.

Both of your starters having inconsistent hands though?

That's a really difficult handicap to overcome.

I know everyone is all hyped up on speed right now (so to speak) but if I'm looking for a guy to complement Kelvin Benjamin, my key factor is that he have the best hands available.

Ideally, you get both speed and hands, but if I'm absolutely forced to take a little less of one or the other, I'm skimping on speed.

Like I've said before, doesn't matter how damn fast you run to a spot if you don't catch the ball when you get there.

If Al Davis was still alive he would be a top 5 pick


Can you prove conclusively that he isn't?

Is there any true, hard evidence that Mark Davis existed before a few years ago? :unsure:


#3304419 Panthers checking out more OL Depth

Posted by Mr. Scot on Yesterday, 03:17 PM

No updates that I've seen.

Heck, I haven't even seen anyone other than Aaron Wilson even acknowledge that he visited.

You'd figure someone else would have at least mentioned it by now.


#3304414 If it came down to Peat or Perriman....

Posted by Mr. Scot on Yesterday, 03:14 PM

Perriman is the flavor of the week because of that 40 time.


Which is why I'm happy our FO prefers game tape.

I've seen plenty of teams make bad draft picks because somebody looked great working out in shorts.


#3304207 Just a little Sunday comedy for you guys

Posted by Mr. Scot on Yesterday, 11:10 AM

Buc fans were still talking like they were the best team in the league, the the Super Bowl win as their evidence, five years and several lost games after the season where it actually happened.

'Delusional' doesn't even begin to cover it.

More former Panther news...

 

John Fox says Jay Cutler will have to beat out Jimmy Clausen for the QB job




#3303598 NFL Free Agency Update Thread

Posted by Mr. Scot on 28 March 2015 - 01:52 PM

From Rotoworld, citing the Saint Paul Pioneer Press...

 

Vikings plan to limit CB Captain Munnerlyn to nickel packages.

 

Munnerlyn is expected to move to the slot coming off a down 2014. He allowed five touchdowns and graded out negatively in coverage by PFF last year. Terence Newman is the favorite to start opposite RCB Xavier Rhodes, with Munnerlyn and Josh Robinson playing in sub-packages. The Vikings also haven't ruled out adding another cornerback in the draft.

 

 

Anyone shocked?

Kugbila was on injured reserve, not the practice squad.

Outside of Norwell and Turner, what guards will be competing for a roster spot? Is Velasco still around? Gary Williams? We could probably stand to bring in some depth and competition at guard as well.


Velasco and Williams are both free agents.

They did re-sign Chris Scott.

Read up on him a little bit. He was up for the Outland Trophy in college. Spent his entire college career at left tackle but projected more as a right tackle or guard in the NFL.

Injuries have been his bugaboo. He tore his ACL twice.

Looks like another low risk, high reward guy if they sign him.


#3303375 Panthers claim OT Jonathan Martin

Posted by Mr. Scot on 28 March 2015 - 08:18 AM

First off PFF is an inaccurate website

And if he did grade out better than Bell it isn't saying much. Your basically replacing dog s**t with cat s**t.

I'm hoping for the best though cause between Oher and Martin Cam is in for another rough season.


I'm not a big fan, but they do at least know more about football than you do.

This is a good, low risk, high reward signing.
