#3322274 Draft Talk with Jonathan Jones

Posted by vorbis on 15 April 2015 - 09:29 AM

FYI i have an album of "rap" songs from the 1920s and 30s. Johnny Cash was a trailblazer, but he's still 60 or so years behind the originators.

 

and that's all i'm going to be a pedant about for now




#3306699 Running backs other than Gurley

Posted by vorbis on 31 March 2015 - 11:50 AM

I like Tevin Coleman a lot. puts immediate pressure on 2nd and 3rd level of defense after he crosses LOS. his speed is a weapon. he definitely fits the stated desire by Gettleman and Rivera to put more speed on the field. just the kind of thing that would make the read option more of a headache for defenses.

lots of posts in this thread would make @PFTCommenter very proud. HOT TAEKS




#3295776 Mr. Richardson did flex muscles regarding Hardy

good for JR. if it's that important to him (and I'm glad that it is), then it's absolutely appropriate to take that stand.




#3281368 CB Teddy Williams Signs With Panthers

Posted by vorbis on 12 March 2015 - 08:58 PM

2 year 2.3M contract, very little guaranteed.

 

year 1 900k

year 2 1.4M

prove it contract

 

either he becomes a huge asset on 4-phase ST and doesn't bring the game to a crashing halt in other phases or he's gone. low first year salary so there is no risk at all in carrying him through camp and preseason. if he earns next year's salary there will be no complaints about paying him.

 

remember at post-season presser both rivera and gettleman talked about possibility of full-time ST aces. here is a ST prospect with tools. there will be others, including some UDFA and guys who are brought in closer to camp. the best players will be rostered.




#3269866 Derrick Morgan hints at meeting with the Panthers

Posted by vorbis on 08 March 2015 - 10:01 PM

And what mental headaches are you talking about? In his first 4 yrs he didn't cause any problems. And his teammates like him so you can't even say it's a locker room thing

 

the headaches caused by a $13M player going on exempt list for 14 games




#3262895 Let the Aints purge brgin

Posted by vorbis on 04 March 2015 - 04:41 PM

PT is or will soon be 30, I think, but man, can't say I'll miss him being a Saint. really great player. I know Saints fans loved him. the screen game is so important to that offense, and they just lost their best weapon with it.

sneaky athleticism imo




#3166296 comp picks?

Posted by vorbis on 31 December 2014 - 04:33 PM

I think the Panthers might even end up with a comp 3rd when all is said and done. the formula, as far as i know, is not made public, but it is based on salary given to players lost vs FA signings, and Carolina definitely had it tilted far to the lost side this season. wouldn't be surprised if it was a 3rd + another, based on anecdotal evidence of past seasons.

idk what universe you live in where Stanley will be around in the 3rd round




#2940078 Star and Short

Posted by vorbis on 09 September 2014 - 07:17 PM

Star is coming along very well but guys, Short has been destroying all preseason. and I'm rewatching the Bucs game right now and he is unstoppable. so violent with his hands and goes to the ball like a magnet. he is truly a special player. really no doubt in my mind he'll end up making more pro-bowls and whatnot than Star. what a player. he can even be as good as McCoy if he keeps developing. he's that explosive.




#2923983 Stephen Hill First Impressions

Posted by vorbis on 03 September 2014 - 10:09 PM

for what it's worth, if 89 is in Carolina this year he eats Stephen Hill alive. with him elsewhere maybe Hill will get a little more breathing room to find his way than he would otherwise. and more breathing room than maybe some other young WRs got during Smith's tenure.




#2922211 Twitter question....

Posted by vorbis on 02 September 2014 - 07:41 PM

you can, but 1) you probably need a separate program like tweetdeck to do it, and 2) you have to let go of the idea that you're going to read everything. just tune in like its a tv channel, and tune out when you've had enough.

#2910523 Godfrey back to S? Per BBR

Posted by vorbis on 26 August 2014 - 03:02 PM

with nickel becoming the base defense of many NFL teams, Godfrey could find a lot of snaps at both S and NB. he's experienced and can be a communicator in the secondary. he's likely going to be in a sub role wherever he is, so it makes sense to get him burn at both spots. plus with injuries, the stability he can bring week to week may come in very handy. take into consideration his salary and the dead money if he's cut, and it's easy to see how he's going to fit on the 53 come Saturday.
