#3021675 Kelvin Benjamin Still Looks Boom or Bust

Posted by firstdayfan on 15 October 2014 - 05:59 AM

I actually get what he's saying. I love KB and think he has been amazing but this guy has a point. You know what separates Benji from the big dogs right now? Explosion. He is just not athleticly gifted to be able to make those kind of plays.

He's big, knows how to use his body, and he's a long strider who can go up and get the ball. But essentially that's all he's shown to this point, which is exactly what this guy is saying.

Luck is the boss but not the one read and run Wilson. He's in the pocket only when he can throw his screens and out routes. If it's not there he's running. He has ways to go.

 

If screens and out routes can net you a career 102.1 passer rating, a 3:1 TD ratio, and a Lombardi Trophy then I would love for Cam to start doing it more often.




#3008761 ESPN Picks - Bengals vs Panthers

My god espn and fox sports must hate the Carolinas, Cheerwine, BBQ, Cam Newton, and all the little kids he hands footballs to in the stands because they didn't pick us to win.

Andrew Luck makes TY Hilton look better than he is. No disrespect to Hilton, he's solid, but Luck is unreal. The hate he gets on here is insane. 

 

 

THIS TIMES A MILLION!!!  I get it guys, Luck screwed us and stayed at Stanford.  But lets face it, he is a great young QB, probably the best young quarterback in the league.  I saw Teeray on twitter last night say that he is a very good quarterback but also very overrated.  Seriously???

 

Name 5 QB's who are playing BETTER than Luck right now!!!  Please do it.  Peyton, Rodgers, Rivers, maybe Wilson?  That's probably it.  The guy brings it home or away no matter who he's throwing to.  And here's a little secret, sssshhhh, don't let anyone hear it, but he's better than Cam right now.

 

We have to end this silly feud that we have with Luck and Wilson too.  It makes us look like a petty, uneducated, and narrow minded fan base.

 

So just stop.  Luck is an amazing QB.  Wilson is unreal.  Cam is great too, but I'm sorry, right now, today, those guys are just simply better.  Period.




#2959917 Revisiting Cam's 4 Sacks Sunday

Posted by firstdayfan on 17 September 2014 - 10:34 AM

One thing I notice about a lot of these photos is Cam never has an outlet if the plays break down.  Usually three receivers in the routes and everyone else is blocking.  Guys like Rodgers, Manning, and Brees are so good bc they have someone to check down to, Cam doesn't seem to in any of these photos.

 

Not sure if that is just play design and a coincidence OR its because there isn't a lot of faith in the offensive line to hold blocks so they keep running backs in to help out.

 

It could also be that they have a lot of faith in Cam's ability to elude pressure and make something happen.  If he could have escaped in either situation there is a ton of grass in front of him.




#2934762 No love for the online?

I think the online is great :)

 

Damn auto correct on my phone.  Lol

Perhaps the biggest question mark this off season and I thought they played outstanding. Only time Anderson was pressured was either on busted plays or for the few minutes there at the end when the bucs were fired up.

They gave Anderson plenty of time and opened enough running lanes to keep the defense honest.

Hats off to the revamped offensive line.


#2930295 Barber: Anderson Attended Production meeting

Is anyone else upset that this information leaked in the first place?  Wonder if Ronde Barber gets some kind of punishment for giving out this information.




#2924176 Let Cam Sit This Week

Posted by firstdayfan on 04 September 2014 - 07:23 AM

Yeah... I'm going to go out on a limb and say there's a great chance we lose this game even if cam were healthy, let alone if our back up was playing.

I know we have some blindly faithful fans on here and that's great but this is going to be a much tougher game than some of you realize.


#2833361 Fan Fest Update

Posted by firstdayfan on 27 June 2014 - 10:07 AM

I'm sure she liked Jake a lot more.

 

She actually was infatuated with Joe Namath...go figure.  She did know her Panthers info though.  I never have heard this but she said the reason the NFL logo is at midfield is not bc JR played in the NFL like I thought but bc the Panthers were the only team ever to be voted unanimously into the league.  So JR puts it there to thank the NFL for giving Charlotte a team.  Sounded cool...she also said that he is extremely adamant that the shield wouldn't be moving anytime soon.

 

I also asked about the black in the end zones and she said they finally found a paint that didn't kill the grass.  Thought that was cool.

 

And finally, she said the new double ribbons they added around the stadium will post advertisements, game stats, and league news, and that they are the largest banners in the US.

 

There you go, that's as good as it gets in the offseason.




#2809885 Panthers Road Show: 1st stop, Greensboro. 2nd, Columbia

Yay Columbia!!!  ME and the 5 other panther fans that live here will be there!!!




#2781652 We didn't do Cam any favors, and if this is it we're gonna have some...

Posted by firstdayfan on 11 May 2014 - 10:18 PM

I was angry last season when we cut Hangartner a week or so before the season or whenever it was.  This year I'm not so angry, YET.  There are still plenty of ways to get better and that includes June 1st cuts and preseason cuts.  Adding a solid vet or two is probably what Gettlemen is thinking at this point.

 

Now if we go into the season in the same situation as we have today then yes I will be upset as well.  But just like Gettlemen signing Wharton right before the season I think we will add to the offensive line before the start of the season.  




#2774282 2nd Round Pick Kony Ealy DE

Posted by firstdayfan on 09 May 2014 - 08:29 PM

There's obviously something about Moses that people don't like because everyone in the league has passed on him twice.  Can't always assume that a guy the media gave us in the first round bc it "fit" should really deserve to be in the first round.

 

I love the Ealy pick.  Give me good players and I will show you a winning team.




#2771607 Gettlemen going after "Max Value"...

Posted by firstdayfan on 09 May 2014 - 10:21 AM

I was reading an article today by Jonathan Jones and I really liked this quote from Gettlemen:

 

 

 

“I say it over and over again: we don’t draft for need, we draft for value. If you draft for need instead of value you’re going to get burned.”

 

This is the first time I've heard him say it like this which I think is really interesting because I feel like he's really saying that if you need a wide receiver than a good one could have more value than say a defensive tackle or defensive end.  

 

I feel like the same thing happened with KK last year because it may be a little hard to believe that he was literally at the top of their draft board but when you factor in the need+their rating (which I'm sure was near the top) then that equals the maximum value.

 

So I really feel like we got some insight into what is in Gettlemen's head in the draft, he loves to get those max value guys and the beginning and then get just solid value guys later.  For example, last year we saw value based picks late like Klein and Barner because that late in the draft you just want to get some guys that can contribute.  Today I think we'll see some more holes filled in the 2nd and 3rd round...probably CB and OL, then from the 4th-7th we'll see just solid value picks no matter what position they play, which I love.

 

The only thing I still can't quite figure out is how Kugbilla factors into all this, maybe the 4th round is for "swing for the fences" guys.




#2730514 Panthers Sign Avant to 1 Year Deal

Posted by firstdayfan on 07 April 2014 - 06:29 PM

I don't know how to feel about this. Beggars can't be choosers, but still. Why not wait until after the draft?

 

Because Gettlemen has said from the start, and I love it, that he wants to go into the draft without "need" positions.  That way they can draft the BPA.  We will obviously draft a receiver but we don't have to draft one in the first round now.
