In Topic: Running Backs by the Numbers

Yesterday, 01:27 PM

I'm not sure about getting rid of Tolbert.  While this year has been pretty down (then up recently), I think he still has value as an important player on our team.

 

Williams though, I just don't see him coming back.  He's just over the hill despite slitting carries his entire career.  I love Williams, but he's got to be a June 1st cut.

 

Stewie will be around until the end of the world I'm pretty sure.  I like Fozzy.  He's got a spark when the ball is in his hands.

 

Then let's look next draft at grabbing a midround guy.  A good line and scheme can turn a marginal prospect into a super star.


In Topic: Kony ealy at DT

Are we on topic or not???

 

Ealy - it will take time.  He's got some good tools for his size, but he's got to translate them better to be more effective.

 

Being Gay?  Are we really talking about this in a football forum?  Tinderbox!  Also, just because you find something different about someone, being a douche isn't going to change them.


In Topic: This accident to Cam is the reason why he needs to HOLD OUT next year

12 December 2014 - 10:16 AM

Holding out for a year would be terrible for everyone.  What it does for Newton is it gives proof of the premadona attitude that has chased him since Florida.  Hurts the Panthers, and what it would do is give Gettleman/Richardson the green light to blow up the team and start from scratch...  Yeah not good for anyone.

 

Cam's going to get $15 million next year regardless.  If he comes back for the final two games and plays really well, possibly into the playoffs, then I would start to have those conversations.  If he's shut down for the rest of the season, then I hold off until next season.  Put up or shut up.


In Topic: KB should continue to get better at routes, but...those hands

08 December 2014 - 10:16 AM

The hands are an issue right now, and so is the larger game.  Looking at his mental miscues in blocking, routes, etc what I see is a guy with great tools who'se over thinking things, a lot. 

 

Like any rookie, he's making errors and learning from them.  He also has a lot of pressure because he has to be the #1 guy.  He's got a great TE to play with, but teams are going to cover him harder, which is putting him out of his game.

 

In time, I think KB is going to be very good.  This is a great WR class, very much like the 96 draft class.  They are playing so very well for rookie WRs it's astounding.  All I ask is that he continues to work hard and get better.  I don't think he'll be a mega star stud type, but I'd be thrilled to have someone like Moose again.  A guy who can be Number 1 when needed, but is always a solid player. 

 

It would be sweet if he became velcro handed ball machine, but I'm realistic in how I look at things.  Just keep getting better KB.


In Topic: Can you hope again?

08 December 2014 - 09:37 AM

Honestly, yesterday had an "every dog has it's day" feel to it.  While I always love it when we beat the Saints, there were just a lot of errors from the Saints that you don't normally see them make.  From drops in the hands (how many times do you see ball bounce off of Jimmy Graham's hands?) to their usually horrific D, I was kind of in disbelief.

 

Has this season ruined me for hopefulness from the Panthers?  I don't think so, but we have been playing so completely bad the past two months, I am still kind of in shock.

 

That being said, if we play like we did yesterday the next three games, there no reason we can't win the division.  There's no reason we can't make a run in the play offs.  But the Panthers have to keep playing that well.  I really hope this was a sign that the corner has been turned.  I really do!
