#3308086 Greg Jennings Thinking About Breaking Signing On Social Media

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on Today, 12:14 AM

I mean, would a professional athlete really do this and drag it out for hours only to send a dead link to Twitter followers? He can't possibly need the attention that bad.

#3307152 Panthers Sign LB Jason Trusnik To A One-Year Deal

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on Yesterday, 04:21 PM

Oh, but wasting 7 roster spots on strictly special teamers is okay


Oddly enough Trusnik is also a LBer and we needed depth there at MLB and he will compete to start at OLB.

Ginn also plays WR and brings the speed we needed there and can win vertically.

Coleman will challenge Boston in camp and may even start over him.

Todman has the speed and quickness we don't really have at the RB position right now and will compete for snaps on offense as a second or third RB.

so yeah, I'm perfectly cool with bringing in special team studs that will compete elsewhere at positions of need. Step of the ledge.

@RapSheet: #FSU CB Ronald Darby stood on his 4.38 40, impressed in drills. Has workout/visit with #Bucs, #Panthers, #Colts, #Saints, #Jets & #Titans

I know we have met with him privately but sounds like we have upcoming workout with Darby.

#3306047 on paper, our new RB Jordan Todman is an upgrade over Fozzy

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 30 March 2015 - 08:15 PM

dont be that guy..

 

Ha I probably won't be. I'm close enough with his best friend that it wouldn't be awkward or feel like a burden or anything like that. I'll make sure he makes the team first as I suspect he will.

Jordan is best friends with a friend of mine that I met during my couple years in San Diego (my buddy went to high school with him in Massachusetts). He has a similar back story to Oher that didn't make it to Hollywood. Happy to see him in a Panther uniform and hope he sticks. Might make my friend reach out to him and send me some gear pronto.


#3305507 JAC RB Jordan Todman signed

The guy was 3rd in kick return yardage in the entire NFL last year. Ginn on punts. Todman on kicks. He should make this team on special teams ability alone. Good on coverage teams as well.


#3304940 If it came down to Peat or Perriman....

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 29 March 2015 - 10:11 PM

I could ask the same question for those that prefer Strong: Why was he getting so much hype post-combine? Because he ran fast for a guy his size and jumped really high. If you actually go and watch this kid play, he doesn't play to his timed speed and he's stiff as hell in and out of his breaks. I liked Strong and he was my preference for the majority of this process, but props to FreeFua for really opening my eyes about him. Go and watch him play. Corners are on his hip like glue almost every time he makes a catch. He rarely gets separation. Rarely cleanly beats his man. Almost always catches back shoulder throws because ASU knew that timing route was the only consistent way for Strong to beat his man. Okay... so Strong has superior hands to Perriman. Fair. But he also is going to have an NFL DB attached to his hips everywhere he goes to knock those passes away. Every Kelvin catch for the most part is contested. The same will be true with Strong. I'd rather have Perriman who can actually get space on athletic ability alone. The route running improvements will come with coaching. Give me the guy that can beat his man over the top and run away from the field in the NFL. Literally all the brightest and best minds on prospects and the draft, Mayock, Brandt, Cossell etc. all agree Breshad Perriman's "dropsies" and route running problems are overblown and they all rave about his natural ability. Perriman is Julio Jones lite. Carolina has never had a 6'3 215lb freak at the receiver position that has produced in college and got better every year. Before just joining in on the popular opinion about his hands go watch him and I bet you change your mind.

Lots of misinformation and lazy generalizing/comparisons about Perriman in this thread.


#3304861 Was beating Atlanta worth dropping 17 selections in the draft?

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 29 March 2015 - 08:48 PM

Yes because winning begets winning and our young guys greatly benefit from the playoff experience.


#3303988 Maine's 2015 Mock Draft (Comp. Picks Included)

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 28 March 2015 - 11:55 PM

Maybe in the 4th or 5th I really don't think he's going in the 3rd as a Jr with limited experience as you say.

Plus his partner in crime is the Batman of that duo and is a sick safety so my man didn't have to do much with Holliman snatching any and everything. Rather have Holliman(whose going in the 3rd most likely).


I guess you like his upside which is there i'll give him that...but yea he'd have to sit so I wouldn't want to use a 3rd on that. Now behind Harper and learning for a year as a 5th round pick....that I could deal with.


I want absolutely nothing to do with Holliman. I respect your opinion and the guy certainly put up some great takeaway numbers, but he may be one of the worst tacklers I have ever seen. He's instinctive and pretty smooth back there but for a guy to be a safety and have that size and be reluctant to tackle is alarming. On top of that he ran deathly slow for a safety at his pro day and didn't jump particularly well either. I don't think he's an NFL caliber athlete especially as a safety in a passing league where he will need cover ground and tackle. Can't imagine an aggressive Rivera defense with a guy that refuses to tackle out back. I'm almost positive Sample will be taken before him. Troubling that he's said to give minimal effort and won't always play at full speed. That doesn't sound like a Gettleman guy to me.

I also saw a statistic that he did not have a single drop the last 4 games of his career. That's a sign to me, along with his stats improving each year, that he is working his craft and was able to build some chemistry with his QB by season's end.
