#2914334 Predictions:Who's going to be cut?

Posted by Frizzy350 on Yesterday, 12:22 AM

Denicos Allen, Richie Brockel, Michael Zordich, carrington byndom, Colin cole, adarrius glanton, Colin jones, Tavares king,Marcus Lucas, mike McNeil, Tom Nelson, drake nelvis, Darrin reaves, miccarar Regis, Anderson Russell,Jason Williams


Cant seem williams, cole or jones being cut.


Williams is too good on special teams and brings a lot of athleticism as a back up.


Cole would have been a solid starter had Star not been drafted.  He's massive and strong, just not as explosive and doesn't move nearly as well as Star.


Jones is also a ST ace and is probably the fastest guy on the team.  He has limited upside as a safety, but he can be used in emergency circumstances.

#2913814 NFL :domestic violence first offense..6 games ...lifetime ban 2nd offense

Posted by Frizzy350 on 28 August 2014 - 08:51 PM

You know you dont have to "hit" a woman to be charged with domestic violence.  She can lie and say you threatened her in an argument! No cuts no bruises, no scars, no scratches just a heated argument.    



Domestic abuse and domestic violence is an incredibly broad category.

Despite majority opinion, most domestic violence has no actual personal injury involved.  It is also scoffed and laughed about when enacted by women on men.



See the difference.

It's about pure athleticism.  Nothing about football.  It's all about confirming what you've seen on tape or spurring you to go back to watch tape to see if you've missed something.


If a guy performs well at the combine and the tape looks good, you've got a bonafide prospect.  If a guy looks good on tape but sucks at the combine, you need to go back and figure out if he's a guy who is going to translate to the NFL level.  If a guy doesn't look special on tape, but performs like a track star at the combine, you need to go back and look at the tape to see if there's a way you can utilize that guy's athleticism in your system.


THAT is the point of the combine.  Too many people get obsessed with the numbers one way or the other.  Some act like it doesn't matter at all, some act like it's the end all be all. Neither are accurate.  It's just a piece of the evaluation.  BUT, when we're talking about pure athleticism, it's about as close to the end all be all that we're gonna get.


THAT is why I say that Josh Norman is a below average athlete for an NFL CB. It has nothing to do with his skills or lack of skills on the field.  It's all to do with what he showed at the combine in the same condition as other prospects at his position.  Athletically, he's nothing special.


So you've just re-affirmed my statement.  No matter what happens at the combine, you need to "figure out" if he's going to be able to play at an NFL level in some way through methods not related to the combine.


I think Ninja Warrior is a better test of pure athletic ability than the combine.  We should replace it.

That's the entire point of the NFL Combine - to quantify the athletism of the top prospects on an even playing field.


And yet it fails miserably.


Sure it gives you some wonderful track stats but it is seriously lacking in so many areas and ends up not telling you anything about a player's ability to play football.


Drills are severely limited, no pads, no helmets and no real way to see how or if a guy will fill the particular role your looking to fill.


All the goods come from coaches tape, pro days and individual workouts.


Lets be honest, the combine is more of a media day than anything else.

#2900697 Possible DE Trade?

Posted by Frizzy350 on 20 August 2014 - 11:58 PM

For some SAT practice:


Hurney is to RBs as Gettleman is to


A) Hamsters

B) DEs

C) Nipple shorts


And the answer is... B! Although you could make a strong case for C. Seriously, Gettleman loves him some DEs. No way does he trade away one of his stockpile.


I think he seriously hates quarterbacks.


Nothing makes me happier than seeing Matt Ryan, Tom Brady and Brees laying on the ground clutching their pretty football like a newborn.


It is a good strategy for the NFL right now.  Considering all the rules that favor wide-receivers and the rampant pass-based offenses in the league, the most consistent strategy is to constantly pressure quarterbacks.

#2900684 Chances Bersin could be our number 2 at WR

Posted by Frizzy350 on 20 August 2014 - 11:46 PM

But teams look in the 1st round for their franchise receivers. They don't look in the practice squad.



Do you have any idea how many stud receivers have been drafted outside the first round (or not drafted at all)?  It's an astounding list.

#2900626 What do you guys make of the Cam haters still out there today?

Posted by Frizzy350 on 20 August 2014 - 10:39 PM

Lol at that.


However Anderson does look good every time he's in the game.  Probably should have gotten another shot at being a starter somewhere.  Really lucky we have him if anything should happen to Cam.


I think Anderson is happy here.  I get the feeling he's just going to do what he can as Cam's trusty back-up until he retires and lives a good peaceful life.  He's never struck me as a guy who likes the spotlight on him.

Stop trashing ex panther players just for the hell of doing it or jealousy. There's a good chance Lafell looks a lot better in NE, as a lot of WRs have. Bottom line, he had way to high of a price tag for keeping him around here for what we want to do.

Why start a thread over a player who doesn't matter to us anymore? Aweful thread, get your panties wedgie out from your ass OP. He's gone so forget about him


I don't think it had anything to do with money.


I didn't want him back at any cost because I felt he would get in the way of evaluating young guys (older PS guys like King/Bersin, draft guys like Benjamin).  LaFell is a good blocker and is very familiar with our system so he would have a big leg up on new guys trying to move up the depth chart.


My biggest gripe with LaFell isn't even the drops or costly times he misses his normally routine blocks.  Its based purely on the fact that I don't see any further potential in him.  He doesn't stretch the field, he doesn't win jump balls, he's not special after the catch and he doesn't have any particular knack for getting open consistently.


LaFell might have an increase in production with the Patriots, but I don't see his ability growing any further than it has here.

Posted by Frizzy350 on 20 August 2014 - 07:49 PM

I wanna see LaFell get popped once for each ball he dropped for us last season.

#2892514 While Kelvin Benjamin has been anointed a "legitimate No. 1" after 1...

Posted by Frizzy350 on 16 August 2014 - 08:54 AM

Didn't he catch a touchdown.


Watch the replay. I don't think it was intended for him.


Also LaFell's problem isn't what he catches, its what he doesnt catch.

#2889562 If Hardy's conviction isn't overturned, he might not play for awhile

Posted by Frizzy350 on 13 August 2014 - 10:01 PM

They were completely different situations.  Hardy is in a he-said she-said debate over a few scratches and minor bruises with a police report siding him.


Rice punched out his fiance.  Then dragged her limp body out to the curb. on camera.  Then to make matters worse, she still married him.


That last part really infuriates people that are into Women's Rights.

#2887888 ESPN Insider ranks Panthers OL the worst in the NFL

Posted by Frizzy350 on 12 August 2014 - 02:22 PM

Stats are a poor method to evaluate an oline. We did NOT have the 7th best oline last year.

We arent the worst this year, the dolphins line is one of the worst groups ive seen in recent history.

#2883616 Kelvin Benjamin - Aside from the touchdown....

Posted by Frizzy350 on 09 August 2014 - 10:33 AM

Not that it matters getting in to what could have or might have...  but in most games I think Benjamin gets McKelvin.  He is far more athletic and faster then Gilmore.  He would have been able to keep up and get in to position much more easily then Gilmore.  And, slammed to the ground - nah, because they'd have just pulled the CB back 5 yards and any contact would be illegal.  Also, they'd have gone to a cover 4.


From the limited amount I saw of KB I have to believe the best way to cover him in the NFL is to intercept and cut him off in motion with the safety.  There is little to not reason to not double team him because there are no viable threats to catch a cold on the team.  Double coverage on KB will be done from his first snap in his first game.  Against the Bucs you will likely see the CB play inside and under on KB, avoid nearly all contact and let Goldson cover the top.  Goldson will likely even be the first player to make contact.  Being that he only ran a 4.61 Benjamin isn't blowing by anyone and defenders have a better chance at jumping his route then they do actually stopping him.  He's just too big and powerful.


If you can keep him outside it will be even easier but a nearly impossible task to do. 



Im sorry we decided to take Cam from you guys.  If only we passed on him, he was all yours.


Im also sorry we took keuchly and left you with stephen gilmore.

#2872175 Cam and high throws.

Posted by Frizzy350 on 31 July 2014 - 05:57 PM

It is actually generally a good idea to throw the ball on the "high end" of the spectrum.  Not every pass is going to be perfect and missing high is the safest place you can miss.


If you overthrow tight coverage to the sideline, you eliminate any chance of a pick and give the receiver a CHANCE to make a play on it.  CBs are generally shorter than wide outs.  Overthrows on deep routes generally go behind anyone on the defense.  It is only an issue on screens, swings and short throws (which cam made serious progress with last year).


Another large factor is interior pressure.  When you can't step into your throw the entirety of your mechanics break.  You can't generate the raw flat power you need in the NFL that you generate with your lower body.  As such, you can either choose to be sacked or make an "arm" throw that will require more trajectory to make it to your man.

The above is what really gives Russel Wilson an edge as a quarterback due to his baseball experience.  As a fielder you need to be able to contort your body to supplement the multitude of odd angles you field the ball at and make a crisp throw immediately following.  These motions are completely against conventional quarterbacking mechanics, but can be invaluable when you need to run around like a chicken with your head cut off and get limited room to pass.

We decided not to add in FB, P, or K. Even as a rb he would not make it. Dlo is a legitimately great RB, I don't see why people fail to see it.



Difficult to see with a line as poor as ours.
