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

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on Today, 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 Yesterday, 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.

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.

All I want is James Sample and Duke fuging Johnson. They need to be Panthers. Oh and Ray Drew.


Sample is a savage. He will be a better pro than he is college player. Under Wilks he can be special.

#3303883 Gettleman; "Me and Greg Jennings sort of kicked the tires and discussed i...

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 28 March 2015 - 08:53 PM

My question is how is Jennings not a good fit? He would most likely be an automatic no 2 WR for us, great route runner, excellent locker room guy. Why is Gman doubting he would be a good fit? Ofcourse he would be a good fit and you dont need to be an NFL GM to see that.

most of my good stuff is on my 500px page. i need to get more of my stuff from indonesia and scotland up there.

 

Awesome photos. Particularly liked the ones of/in Cambodia. My girlfriend's family is from the country and I am hoping to go in the near future. Her parents are headed to Cambodia to see their family members for a month next week. 

 

I always want to ask them about the Khmer Rouge but not sure it's something they want to speak about. Her mother lost her entire family in the nation's capital and quite literally hid in some brush for a few days. After the armies had left she wandered to the border of Thailand where she was taken to a refugee camp and treated horribly until she was able to come to the States. Her dad was from a small remote village so his family survived and he came to America by choice leaving his family behind in search of opportunity. One thing lead to another and her parents met in high school both as refugees and genocide survivors. I've picked up on some words and would love to learn the language as they are always speaking in Khmer around me but it's unlike anything I've ever heard.

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 27 March 2015 - 11:05 PM

I can't go with the RB pick in the 2nd.. Rather have a pass rusher or CB or OT there. .

 

RB isn't necessarily what I want in the 2nd...but looking at who we have brought in and where they are projected to go I think Gettleman wants a back early on and Coleman would be my preference.
