#1220794 Travelle Wharton

Posted by CRA on 03 June 2011 - 03:20 PM

Wharton is good enough that I forgive him for being a dirty scumbag Gamecock. Captain is on a pace to be forgiven as well.

Wharton is a dang good G. He also is diverse enough that he can slide out and do what he did in 2009 at the T spot.

Chemistry among the line and QB play are two huge factors that I think people don't focus enough on. If you shuffle the line too much they aren't gonna look good b/c injury and QB imo is one of the bigggest factors in how a OL looks in pass protection. Bad QB play will make any OL look like garbage.

#1217110 In this thread I compare the Panthers and Giants drafting, 2002-2009

Posted by CRA on 31 May 2011 - 12:55 PM

Right, but in Fiz's defense, I think the Giants' overall grade for that draft suffers because they traded away the better quarterback and high draft picks for Manning. They knew they were going to get one of the top quarterbacks and evaluated them wrong, and I think that is a major strike against that draft for the Giants. You never know how rounds 2-7 seven are going to fall, so some disappointments there can be explained.

I will agree, they lost some as Rivers > Eli but that really is another topic. Eli is what they got with the pick and outside of his rookie year the Giants have not had a single losing season.

I agree, you can't expect 2-7 not to have flops. I just think Hurney has missed in rounds 2-7 at a higher rate than a lot of teams. Rounds 2-3 especially...Carolina pimping the line they emphasize building through the draft means Hurney should be looked at hard in rounds 2-7.

#1214752 For Matt Moore: Bad News and Good News

Posted by CRA on 27 May 2011 - 12:40 PM

I've believed pretty much all along that Moore would get a shot to compete in training camp. Hurney talked about him as someone they definitely wanted back and when he referred to his issues last year, he never mentioned "struggles", only "injuries".

Add in that when you look at their respective skill sets, Moore is actually much better suited to run a Coryell offense than Clausen is.
Still, Moore was an undrafted free agent and Clausen was a high draft pick, a recent one at that.

The failure to mention Moore could indeed just be a miscue on the part of the writer, or maybe something he didn't feel was relevant.

Or... :sosp:

Agree 100%......that just amplifies how dumb it will be for Carolina to waste a roster spot this season on Clausen. Clasuen is going to waste a spot this year and then they will move on......scrapping him in camp and giving Moore a spot imo would be the wiser move.

Time to admit Carolina made a mistake drafting QBs during a lameduck coaches last year. Made no sense then.......the time to go after young QBs was once a new staff was brought on.

#1211158 Who will the Panthers bring in to help on offense?

Posted by CRA on 24 May 2011 - 12:24 PM

why won't we be using FBs?

was Chud not a user of them in Clev?

FB Vickers was a Pro Bowl alternate in Chud's big year in Cleveland being the lead for blocker for Lewis.....

#1210104 This is me venting (somewhat long)

Posted by CRA on 23 May 2011 - 02:48 PM

A woman getting robbed is other people's business? OMG Y'all are the same people that would walk by someone dying on the street.

he actually never said she was being robbed....said she was trying to get in and the guy pulled her out. There was a lot of yelling and he hit her.

sounds to me like it could easily of also been a domestic dispute.....and those ain't nothing to f with.

#1205403 Matt Moore on his fate with the Panthers

Posted by CRA on 18 May 2011 - 04:21 PM

I want NCmonzta to come back and explain to us how Fox should have left Moore in there after he was on IR

maybe NCmonsta meant....

Moore should have never been benched in week 2....and Clausen should have never been given the keys as starter week 3. In theory, Moore starts the entire season.

since you are changing things.....you don't keep everything else occured later in the real timeline of events the same. Moore plays up until the NO game as the starter......then the events of that game change as well.

Can't wait to see this kid in action.

#1186292 Jimmy Clausen

Posted by CRA on 04 May 2011 - 03:56 PM

So it's Clausen's fault that he was thrown in there prematurely without the following: running game, good receivers, or a respectable offensive line?

WRs had no problem when Clausen was on the bench.

Running game did the same as always - start slow, finish strong.

OL play was comparable to the rest of the division. QB play wasn't.

#1183811 OBL Death photo pending. (Photo Inside, enter at your own risk)

Posted by CRA on 03 May 2011 - 02:15 PM

I understand your point but we were more than respectful. We washed and cleaned his body, had a military preacher write a prayer and translate it into Arabic, but his body into a weighted body bag. If bin Laden caught one of our leaders, he would have them beheaded left in a field somewhere while the whole thing ran on constant loop on Al Jazera

to us, we were respectful.....

to radicals, it was an improper burial regardless as it was at sea. No point giving them visual ammo.

more negatives than positives imo to release that one. I think the opposite is true for the death shot.

Don't get me wrong, I am not saying he deserved a proper burial. I think they should have just set him on fire and kicked him overboard. He didn't deserve anything. We don't need to show the Muslin world anything in regards to this particular Muslim is my point.

#1183418 Osama death photo?....Nope a fake

Posted by CRA on 03 May 2011 - 11:33 AM

hasn't every report said he was shot above the left eye?

I also question why they would put a Seal's face clearly in a released photo.

gotta be a fake.

#1177542 The ESPN brethren says the Panthers have given up on LAST years draft.

Posted by CRA on 30 April 2011 - 01:07 PM

Clausen was bad.....very bad.

However, Edwards is still an unknown......can't rule him out b/c he didn't play. No reason to think Edwards can't be nasty in the slot with someone who wants to use 3 WRs in his sets.

Perfect example, the newly crowed god known as Charles Johnson.

1 tackle is what his stat sheet showed going into his 2nd year.......now we didn't give up on him but realized it took time. You can't give up on guys who don't get a chance to prove who they are on a field.

#1169958 Whitlock on Cam and NFL in general

Posted by CRA on 28 April 2011 - 02:50 PM

Newton would be a great pick outside the Top 10 as a project QB with big upside.

Its a stupid pick #1 overall with no #33 and lots of needs, period.

ESPN will tell you Carolina has lots of needs.......Carolina realistically outside of QB doesn't have anymore than most teams. Carolina has a weakness at DT they need to address.....and they could easily address that and CB and OL in free agency. They purposefully didn't do that last year.

QB ain't stupid. There have been two real problems w/ Carolina since AZ......coaching and the QB position. We addressed one, now for the other.

#1168983 Last time 16th ranked player went #1??

Posted by CRA on 28 April 2011 - 10:32 AM

Cam Newtons not even a consensus top 10 prospect much less Top 5 and we are picking him #1?

Drafting him is all on the assumption that in the NFL, for first time in his career, he will learn and master: Passing Accuracy, Reading Defenses and playing from the Pocket....this is why its a huge gamble and a polarizing pick if they do it.

It feels like the Panthers are taking out a second mortgage on the house, going to Vegas and doubling down at the Roulette table.

it is just like Tampa Bay said....they would have taken Josh Freeman #1 overall if that is where they were sloted.

#1166507 Newton "not doing interviews" the day before the draft?

Posted by CRA on 27 April 2011 - 01:54 PM

I can't believe Cam didn't want to hang around and answer the same recyled questions he has answered over and over as reporters look for the slightest word to twist.
