#2830267 Avant was not a Chip Kelly Type of Receiver

So we are just going to try to play down accomplishments now?

Take a look at nick foles and lesean McCoy before and after he got there.


Don't know what you are going to do, but I am going to wait to see how he performs in coming seasons.


People were proclaiming Greg Schiano a roaring success after year one too.

Saw that coming :lol:

Observer: Panthers confident with young guards Amini Silatolu, Trai Turner

Silatolu, 25, the second-round pick in 2012 from Division II Midwestern State, was limited during OTAs (organized team activities) and minicamp. But he hopes to be full speed for the start of training camp next month.

Silatolu was very specific last week when asked the status of his knee.

“It feels good, probably 98 percent,” he said. “I’ve still got to work on some stuff during this little break.”

Silatolu and Kalil were impressed with how quickly Turner picked up the offense. Kalil said the 6-3, 320-pound Turner has done “an incredible job” transitioning from LSU following his redshirt sophomore season.

“Minicamp and OTAs are meant to sort of overwhelm the young guys and see how well new guys adapt. Especially in this offense, we’re throwing a ton of information at them,” Kalil said. “And he’s done a really good job being able to handle it all.”

“I’m excited about him,” Kalil added. “He’s a great guy. He’s got an incredible work ethic and his football awareness is really good. It’s hard, you’ve got to remind yourself he’s only (21) years old.”



“They look good, as good as they can look in pajamas,” Kalil said of the guards. “I’m anxious and excited to see how they do when we get full pads on...”



Thanks for the image, Ryan :unsure:

#2830049 Rivera talks up Newton's leadership

Posted by Mr. Scot on 25 June 2014 - 01:51 PM

From Albert Breer on NFL.com...


"Over the last 10 weeks, we're seeing Cam maturing, and doing things in other ways to contribute and improve," Rivera said as he headed out to the final practice of the spring last Thursday. "It got to the point where Cam was installing things. He led the meetings. He was sitting with the receivers, the tight ends and helping them, not just standing next to (offensive coordinator Mike Shula). You see stuff now you didn't see before."


Cam Newton's growth has Carolina Panthers high on QB's future



Pretty good read. 


(Breer is one of the better writers on NFL.com, in my opinion)

#2829983 The stupid mugshot guy

Don't piss me off nearly as much as the women who fall for serial killers. Like the dumb chicks who fell for and even married Richard Ramirez. Seriously, they hear that he repeatedly raped old women and then murdered them, and that revs their engine? Good! We need to keep his genes in the species.


But the girls who are into this guy? BFD. A lot of girls say they like a "dangerous man" more than the boring old straight-laced guys. But they reap what they sow; a guy with a chopper, tear drop tattoo and felony assault conviction is fun until you end up on an episode of cops.


I liked what Jeff Foxworthy said about fantasy vs reality there...


The number one fantasy man that women have is a dangerous man, someone like James Bond or something like that.  But in reality ladies, if you're with a 'dangerous man' you're gonna wind up on an episode of 'Cops' hanging out the window of a trailer in a tube top yellin' "LOCK HIS ASS UP!  LOCK HIS ASS UP!"

I don't mind Kelly I just think his system is too restrictive.

It works at the NCAA level because there are over one million high school football players that you can choose from to fit your teams' needs. Not to mention you don't have to pay the athletes and you're not dealing with a salary cap.

Personally, if he wants long term success I believe he needs to expand his system so that it fits the games of more offensive players. So what that this player isn't a track star or so what if this running back isn't a scat back.

Good coaches have great systems but they also can adapt their system to specific players strengths.


The thing I noticed most about Kelly's system in its first year is that it wore out both defenses in the game, the opponents' and his own.


It's one thing to run a high speed offense with a 90 man roster of college kids.  Quite another to run it with a 53 man roster of guys of varying ages.

You talking about Smitty?

That description more closely fits Ricky Proehl than Smitty.

#2827651 Pretty high pick for a Guard

Posted by Mr. Scot on 23 June 2014 - 02:18 AM

Jordan Gross struggled early too.

The transition from college to pro is not easy for anyone. Guys "struggling" this early in the process is no shock. And frankly, as a predictor of his NFL future, it's largely meaningless.

People are way too eager to declare young guys 'boom' or 'bust'. At least let the kid take a snap in an NFL game first.

Wtf (w meaning why) did we let this guy go. Like these are the guys you want on your team


Because much as we all like him, he's not objectively worth a five year, 25 million dollar contract.

You do Wonder Woman as she was originally conceived (hot chick with superpowers in skimpy outfit) and you anger all the feminists.


You do Wonder Woman like the feminists would want (star of a Lifetime original movie with superpowers) and nobody in your target audience will pay to see it.


So whadda ya do?
