#2613148 Munnerlyn Wants long term deal

And I want Munnerlyn to grow 6 inches. 




#2613011 Upon further review, we should go o line in 1st round instead of receiver

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 13 January 2014 - 01:16 PM

One thing being lost here: our running game outside of Cam scrambles and some designed stuff was really really bad. The right side was getting no penetration whatsoever. A first round o lineman helps that a lot.

 

and so does an offensive linemen in the second or third round.

 

I'd argue that having a legitimate deep threat or receiver that can high point the ball and make tough catches in traffic benefits our running game more so than an early round tackle. If we had any weapons worth a damn on this team outside of an aging and steadily declining Steve Smith, teams would be reluctant to stack the box and it would free up our running lanes. 

 

It works both ways...potent weapons in the passing attack free up and allow the running game + Cam running to get going. We do not have the weapons right now to keep a defense off balance. They can single cover anyone on our offense and we have no one that is a consistent threat to stretch the field and get over the top of a defense. As a result, the defense spies Cam, stacks the box, and shuts down our running game aside from broken plays where Cam gets out of the pocket and converts. 




#2612936 Upon further review, we should go o line in 1st round instead of receiver

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 13 January 2014 - 12:46 PM

Yesterday we saw first hand what having a stud receiving core can do for a QB of Kaepernick's caliber. We had no answer for Boldin and Crabtree made some clutch grabs...Davis caught a touchdown that changed all momentum right before the half.

 

Our offensive line needs work, no doubt, but getting Amini and Kugbila back should create stiff competition at both guard competitions. Lets not act like Amini Silatolu is a scrub. He was actually playing pretty well overall when he went down and has the athleticism and physical ability to be a great guard for us for a long time. In between Gross and Kalil he will learn the mental aspects...the injury just hurts his progression and experience. I have a feel Gross will be back for another year or two.

 

We can find good talent at the right tackle position in the second or even third round. Any guy selected there is going to give Bell a run for his money and he will provide valuable depth. It's pathetic how often Cam had to take coverage sacks this season. Even with good protection up front he was forced to hold the ball far too long because of the lack of talent at the receiver position. 

 

Look at the free agent WRs we have and tell me we don't need to draft a WR early. 




#2611988 To those of you not named lilsmitty or onlypanthersfaninmaine...

I'm happy to have had 15min of unfamous fame on this site by commenting on Ron Rivera's daughter's Instagram pic. Remember? The one that mentioned the Huddle? I feel that got the word out about us and hopefully spawned a few new members. Good times. And what JayFlip said, we will be out to the Queen City sometime soon. OPFIM is a good dude.

 

 

I've seen OPFiM at a few road games, haha. AZ and SD the past two years. The three of us in my avatar will be making the pilgrimage to the QC next season. It'll be our first home Panther game ever. Already getting pretty giddy at the thought.

 

Road warriors baby. It was good seeing you both in Arizona this season...despite how atrocious that game turned out to be. I'm not living on the West Coast anymore so maybe we will run into one another in Charlotte in the future.

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 13 January 2014 - 01:42 AM

Well said. I appreciate that and I am sure many others do as well. All I know is I cannot wait to get a place in or around Charlotte and enjoy many more games at the stadium watching my team play.

 

My goal this summer is to make it to training camp. 

 

Also, I've actually shot a resume over to a Panthers employee and he is looking into some possible positions for me so maybe that will work out. 




#2611946 Rivera still can't win after a bye week

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 13 January 2014 - 01:14 AM

I don't agree this is the right time for this thread but it is a legitimate concern with Rivera and his staff. He is now 0-4 in his career after a bye week and has never won in week one.




#2611733 NFL Gameday Final Comparison of Goalline Playcalling

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 12 January 2014 - 11:40 PM

Put Cam in the shotgun, put a couple receivers out wide, and let him get a full head of steam running forward to pound it in. It has worked countless times and for whatever reason we decided to do something I don't recall us running very often. 




#2611728 NFL Gameday Final Comparison of Goalline Playcalling

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 12 January 2014 - 11:38 PM

The execution was even worse than the play calls. Pretty sure Tolbert and Cam got stuffed by their own teammates and one point. Who pulls a guard on the one inch line? Wharton tripped, inadvertently tackled Tolbert, and killed the play before it started. 




#2611466 5 things we learned

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 12 January 2014 - 10:23 PM

I said before the year that we were likely a year away from making a legitimate push for a Super Bowl. I predicted us to go 9-7 and in reality just wanted to get a playoff birth. 12-4 and an NFCS Championship is enough to build on. We simply did not have the weapons nor the protection up front to get us to the promise land. That can be fixed in one off-season and I am looking forward to it. This is the off-season where we revamp the offense and build around the Franchise QB that is Cam Newton. 




#2611190 locker room closed...players emotional.

I'm 100% now in draft mode. 




#2611017 Which Player Do You Not Want Back Next Season

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 12 January 2014 - 08:31 PM

Let's put it this way...for what we would have to pay LaFell, we could get a serviceable and solid offensive linemen and get a receiver with better skills on a rookie deal and smaller cap hit. 




#2608629 Official Panthers - 49ers Playoff Gameday Thread

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 12 January 2014 - 03:53 PM

Solid season. Disappointed in the final result and how we played today but regardless this team far exceeded my expectations and winning the NFC South is nice.

Very excited about this team going forward as long as we invest heavily in the offense in the offseason. We need better weapons around Cam and some young protection up front.

Keep pounding.
