#3273390 (Rumor) Panthers interested in Cecil Shorts

OK.

 

If you think KB has drop issues....




#3261744 Trent Cole makes a lot of sense.

Posted by mario on 03 March 2015 - 08:24 PM

LOL why people are saying he's a 34 OLB? He's been one of the best DE in the NFL his whole career playing in a 43. Eagles have only been playing 34 under Chip, hence why he's regressed lately (+age).




#3214303 comp picks?

Posted by mario on 20 January 2015 - 08:59 AM

I thought Lafell got pretty good money compared to Captain and Ginn. This stuff is so confusing. It's easier to just wait and see. But these picks are great for picking up offensive lineman with question marks or special teams players.

Captain got the most money all of the 3 average-wise. In fact LaFell is the one with the cheapest contract out of the 3. The difference isn't very big so that's why they all are valued as 6th round players.

 

Could see LaFell netting us more than Mitchell. Very possible he ends with 1,000 yards after the Super Bowl in addition to his 7 TDs.

Perfomance is a big myth in the comp picks formula. The NFL doesn't have a way to determine if a said WR played better than a LB, they don't have something tangible to determine that: it's all about the money. Mitchell got 5M/year while LaFell only got 3M/year putting them in different tiers so there's no way LaFell net us a better pick than Mitchell (or one in the same round for that matter).

 

Now the NFL could use something like % of snaps played to arrange players in the same tier, that's why i think LaFell will have better value than Ginn despite signing a cheaper contract. Doesn't matter one bit since they still have a 6th round value and Cotchery will cancel one of the 2.




#3213604 comp picks?

The only guy we signed who will be viewed as a true FA signing will be Cotchery. Roman Harper signed a decent enough deal (2yr/3.6M) but was cut by the Saints so he doesn't count in terms of FA added versus FA lost. Avant, DeCoud, Cason, Dickson and others were cut by previous team or signed here a vet minimun contract.

 

My prediction is we get 3 comp picks: 5th (Mitchell), 6th (Munnerlyn), 6th (Ginn+LaFell-Cotchery). Best case scenario would be a 4th and a 5th by Mitchell and Munnerlyn.

 

So OverTheCap just did a projection for comp picks. They had us getting a 5th for Mitchell. The next bit is interesting:

 

 

  • If either Antoine Cason or Joe Webb do not qualify, Carolina will get a 6th for Captain Munnerlyn.
  • If both Antoine Cason and Joe Webb do not qualify, Carolina will get two 6ths for Captain Munnerlyn and Ted Ginn.

 

 

It all dependes of the value the NFL gives to Cason and Webb based on their contracts (veteran minimun). If they think both have 7th round value then we have 3 adquired Free Agents qualified for the formula:

 

Joe Webb (7th rounder) would cancel out Ginn (6th rounder and lowest value of FA lost)

 

Antoine Cason (7th rounder) would cancel out LaFell (6th rounder and 2nd lowest value of FA lost)

 

Jerricho Cotchery (7th rounder) would cancel out Munnerlyn (6th rounder and 3er lowest value of FA lost)

 

 

BUT if they think both Cason and Webb are not worthy of compensation since they signed a veteran minimun contract (that's what i based my prediction on) we only have 1 player qualifying for the formula:

 

Jerricho Cotchery (7th rounder) would cancel out Ginn (6th rounder and lowest value of FA lost)

 

That would net us a 5th (Mitchell, this is sure no matter what), a 6th (Munnerlyn) and a 6th (LaFell) making my prediction spot on  :D




#3165839 comp picks?

Good poo. If we are able to get an extra 5th or 6th or both, that would put us in great position to trade up. I know it's not Gettleman's style, but trading our 2nd plus a comp pick in the 5th to move up to the top of the 2nd seems like a good deal to me. Probably wouldn't have room on the 53 for 9 draft picks as is, let alone with UDFAs thown into the mix.

 

You can't trade comp picks

#2868114 Pats claim RB Tyler Gaffney off waivers

Posted by mario on 28 July 2014 - 04:48 PM

Jayson Braddock @JaysonBraddock 4 min

Greg Orton heads to the Patriots IR after clearing waivers.

 

OMG the Patriots just did the same move with one of their injured players. They must be dumbzzz. Fire Belichick.




#2868052 Pats claim RB Tyler Gaffney off waivers

Posted by mario on 28 July 2014 - 04:27 PM

I believe they could have kept him on the active roster untill the first game and that put him on I.R ...just read the rules on IR candidates.FO fugged up on this one
Big time..just Google it and read and weep

 

If you keep him on the active roster until after final cuts you have to waive one healthy player you want on your 53-man roster, then IR Gaffney and hope no one claims said player (unlikely) so you can put him back on the roster. That seems like a good idea to you?

 

What Panthers did is something every team does in this situation. Just the Past being the Pats and saying FU to the NFL-etiquette.

wow.

 

is there a precedent for this?

 

Yes. The Patriots did the same 2 years ago with the Giants starting TE.
 




#2734359 D-Will in shock over loss of receiving corp

Posted by mario on 10 April 2014 - 11:50 AM

Dwill had almost 900 yards himself and he missed a game, stop grouping them together. Ya'll really hate Stewart and are just blaming Dwill.

 

Dwill is not producing anywhere near his payrate, specially if you compare it to today's NFL standar of production/money. You can mask it with fancy numbers as much as you want. He had a 5M cap hit last year.

 

Chris Ivory had 10 rushing yards less than DWill (in 19 less atts) with a cap hit of 1.5M.

 

Knowshon Moreno is pretty much a young Dwill clone: 195 more yards in 40 more atts. He just signed a 1 yr contract for 3M.

 

Chris Johnson was just cut "for being overpayed". He's had 4 1000 rushing yards seasons in last 4 years, DWill has 0 in same time span.

 

The only guy who i can think of being more overpayed than him this past season is Ray Rice and he was much better than DWill in previous seasons. There's only 7 RBs this next year with bigger cap numbers than Williams. You're high if you think he's nowhere near that talent and production-wise.

 

He wants to keep the money he once signed for although he's not deserving now? perfectly fine but STFU about the team not keeping players who signed contracts this team couldn't afford to give.




#2734274 D-Will in shock over loss of receiving corp

Posted by mario on 10 April 2014 - 11:11 AM

Why? It's just business. D-Wil wants to win, and it's hard to win when Jericho Cotchery is your number one receiver.

 

Gettleman wants to win, and it's hard to win when your 1-2 RB tandem, who barely crack the 1000 rushing yards mark combined, occupy 20% of the salary cap allocated to the entire offense.
 




#2722416 DNewton from ESPN thinks Panthers wants Godfrey back

Posted by mario on 31 March 2014 - 02:39 PM

Let's not assume he returns to his previous level of productivity.  Achilles injuries are nasty

 

I hope he doesn't return to his previous level of productivity... that would mean he still sucks.

#2720842 To B(PA) or not to B(PA)

Posted by mario on 29 March 2014 - 01:10 PM

BPA is best player avalaible in each team's board when the pick comes. I have no idea why people keep doubting the philosophy bringing up other prospects names when we have no idea how the board is stacked.

 

There are more than 224 picks each year, NFL draft boards are filled with 100-150 names (teams like the Patriots are rumored to have even a smaller number). There's just no way every popular player with a 1st round grade given by draftniks and media is in every team's draft board. For what we know Mathieu very well could be off the board for Carolina considering his off-the-field stuff.

 

Green Bay is rumored to throw every defense back under 5-11 off their board. And each FO in the NFL have these type of "rules" when grading players, in one way or another.

 

That teams' General Managers like to lie and brag about their BPA philosophy when they could be pushing a prospect based on need? Sure

 

That we as fans have no idea if our team has truly drafted the best player avalaible (unless you're the Cowboys) and bringing up more known players to dispute the fact that a pick "is not BPA" is a very stupid point? Also true.
