What did I miss?

#2173596 Expectations for next year?

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 24 March 2013 - 04:26 AM

If we can get three starters out of this draft I think 10-6 is a possibility and 9-7 more likely.

#2168083 CJ's whip

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 19 March 2013 - 07:01 PM

He already has a black lambo.....is it just me or would one super-sportscar be more than enough

Lambo =/= Phantom.

The Lambo is the sports car. The RR Phantom is the luxury vehicle.

If I had his money I'd probably get myself a coupe, a sedan, and an SUV so I could be prepared for all occasions.

#2168080 Ted Ginn and Mike Mitchell visiting Panthers

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 19 March 2013 - 06:58 PM

I think Gettleman's plan, as he stated when he was first brought in, is to really improve the roster from top to bottom. The guys he is bringing in for visits and potential signings are better options than what we currently have on the bottom of our roster.

If we can improve our overall depth and boost special teams through FA and get 4-5 starters between FA and the draft while setting us up favorably in terms of the salary cap I'll consider this off-season a success.

Those who thought this transformation from the Hurney era to Gettleman would be painless were kidding themselves. I am taking a wait and see approach to Gettleman as our GM but so far I like his way of conducting business and going about his due diligence.

#2158017 A little piece by Yahoo Sports (John Harris) on potential draft picks

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 12 March 2013 - 03:49 AM

My 2013 Mock Draft for the Panthers:

1st: Eric Fisher OT Central Michigan
2nd: Dee Milliner CB Alabama
3rd: Jonathan Cooper G North Carolina
4th: Cordarrelle Patterson WR Tenn
5th: Kenny Vaccaro S Texas
6th: Star Lotulelei DT Utah
7th: Tavon Austin WR/RB/KR West Virginia

SUPER BOWL BOUND. You heard it here first.

#2143776 Cordarrelle Patterson always wanted to play for the panthers

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 24 February 2013 - 10:23 PM

Starting to sound a lot like Dez Bryant without the off-field issues.

Do want!

I haven't heard the immaturity or lack of effort away from the ball thing brought up with Patterson like I did with Bryant. Dez was a top 10 talent that fell to the 20s and Dallas got a steal. As someone mentioned above I also have read that Patterson is very coachable. If Dez can fall as he did, I think its possible Patterson falls to 14. Couple his rawness with being unimpressive in interviews and it may just happen. I'd be pretty disappointed if we passed on him though.

Agreed I could care less if he isn't that bright of well-spoken. If he can be coached up to catch with his hands away from his body and run crisp routes then I'll take him at 14. Hopefully these interviews cause him to drop to us and hopefully Carolina pulls the trigger because they see him as BPA.

#2142755 How Likely is it the Panthers Trade Down in the Draft?

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 23 February 2013 - 11:49 PM

I just cannot help but feel giddy about a trio of Cooper or Hankins or Jesse Williams and then DeAndre Hopkins and Philip Thomas in round 2.

#2142676 Once Gamble is Cut, Cornerback Becomes Our Biggest Need

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 23 February 2013 - 09:47 PM

I'm with you on this one Gallagher. When Gamble is cut, and potentially Captain, this secondary is going to be very inexperienced, unproven and raw. Their deficiencies were hidden towards the end of last season because our defensive front was able to get consistent pressure for the most part.

Without Gamble and Captain, arguably the best and most experienced person in the secondary is Charles Godfrey. I'm in favor of bringing in an solid and proven starter in this league via free agency because somebody needs to lead that unit. If not, I'd like to see address corner in the second if Milliner doesn't fall.

Are you really comfortable with the likes of Josh Thomas, James Dockery, and Josh Norman taking on the likes of Roddy White, Julio Jones, Vincent Jackson, Mike Williams, and Marques Colston twice a year? No thank you. I want a big physical corner that can cover and could care less if it comes from free agency or the draft.

#2142325 Luke Coming on NFL Network Live

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 23 February 2013 - 01:52 PM

Right now.


Luke thinks we need to finish games. Need to play 4 quarters consistently. As the season progressed they took a big step forward. The experience of the tough losses early in the year are a learning process and mentions learning from experience. Mentions making a stop in the Washington game at the end. They took some bumps and bruises but the defense took pride in getting a stop and helping to get wins as the season continued.

Talks about his pick 6 against Miami in college and thinks his best plays this season were against Oakland. Pressure got to the quarterback and allowed him to make a play and get an int. Most comfortable playing inside because of his experience there. Hadn't played outside and once he got to the middle was more comfortable and felt at home.

Believes a rookie could come in and add depth on defense because we had some young guys that played well...and wants to have a good defensive line in front of him. Says it would be great to add a big body in front of him, Thomas, and James. Laughs about Cam being bigger than all of the LBers and being bigger than defensive ends and tight ends.

Being asked about adding a WR in free agency or the draft: Thinks it would help a lot. Would like to add another burner to make the offense that much more dangerous.

Asked what he prepared most for in the combine: On-field stuff...40, cone drills, foot drills and technique. Said he was asked some strange questions for instance "what is the weirdest question you have been asked at the combine?" But nothing was too off the wall with him in particular. Couple of teams messed with him by showing him highlights of missed plays to see how he would react and if he could explain himself.

Interviewers joked at the end about how Luke racked up 10 tackles during the brief interview. Overall probably lasted 5 minutes or so. Luke looked like Clark Kent per usual with his clean cut look and glasses and the two doing the interview were hyping him up. Nice to get some air time and coverage for a Panther's player.

That's all I got.

This roster needs another receiver with dreadlocks.

Please Miami, sign Wallace or Jennings!

I live in CT bro. They're everywhere.

Don't worry my dude I'm dating a Patriots fan as well.

#2140106 Cam's Girlfriend

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 20 February 2013 - 09:39 PM

Wonder how many of those $100 bills Cam was throwing got picked off.

Just 2.9% of them judging by his career interception percentage by attempts.

#2139203 CJ is the NFL DE Prototype for Forcing Fumbles

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 20 February 2013 - 02:03 AM

For the first time in a long time I'm not worried about our DEs and our pass rush. I am confident CJ, Hardy, and Alexander will blossom into a great trio this next season. I'm hoping we add a big body in the middle in the first our second round this year and we can run packages on passing downs getting 4 good pushers on the field at once.
