#2782676 Better or Worse

Posted by CajunTuffguy on 12 May 2014 - 03:23 PM

I respect him as a player. Making the team and earning playing time as a UFA is a great accomplishment. But there are reasons he went undrafted. The odds of a long and succesful career are against him. I hope he improves, I would love him to be a star for us. But history has taught me to keep low expectations for undrafted guys.


He may not blossom into a #1 corner, and may not be the guy we think he is, but it's unfair to say all other rookies or young players will improve, except him, especially when he is kept in the same role that he maintained last year.  He earned the respect of a lot of the players on the roster last year.  I remember in particular, Smitty speaking very highly of him because for the better part of the season, he was the player picked on the most on defense, and while he may not have been a stud, he held his own more times than not.  He's not a #1, but I do think he will prove to be a very good #2 barring injury next year.  Remember the guy did have comparable numbers to every other rookie CB, so let's not just completely dismiss him just yet.

So...let me get this straight...Star, KK, Cam, and Keek all improve because of more experience, yet Melvin White stays the same in the same role in his secon year?  I swear, kid gets no respect.

#2778704 6th Round - Carolina selects RB Tyler Gaffney, Stanford

Posted by CajunTuffguy on 10 May 2014 - 04:44 PM

I honestly think this is a good pick.  I love Deangelo, but he was far to much of a boom or bust prospect.  I think this spells the end for him in Carolina, and we'll go into the season with Stew-Gaf-Tol-Barner.  It'll save 2 mil towards cap on june 1rst, and then push us closer to the post double trouble era which is sorely needed because todays NFL, teams just don't dump tons of money into RB's like they used to. 


This entire draft has the makings of one of cap clearing one to give us room for the stars we have upcoming on new contracts.  Kelvin brought in to replace Smitty's roster spot, Ealy brought in to clear up either CJ or Hardy, and Gaffney brought in to replace D-wil.  That will all free up money for Cam/Keek/Star as their contracts come available in the coming years.

#2746209 Worst player to ever lace up in a Panther uniform

Don't care what his stats were, Rae Carruth is the worst everything that ever put on a panthers uniform.

#2722511 Cotchery as #1 WR or Bell at starting LT or rookies starting at both positions

Posted by CajunTuffguy on 31 March 2014 - 04:01 PM

I honestly don't think we'll go into next season with either of the scenarios of Bell starting LT, or a Rookie starting LT.  I think we'll draft someone to take over, but I think we'll let some moves happen and see what's available in the cheaper pile of free agents at the end, or possibly after some cuts are made, possibly a cap casualty of a LT with some experience is let go for a decent younger guy from another team, and we'll make a move on the older guy for a rental until the rookie gets up to speed.


That's just not a position that you can go into the season with inexperience like what we have on the roster, so I think a rental for a vet that has a clue of what's going on will be our likely course.  I think it's much more plausible that we can go into the season with no legit #1 receiver than there is we can go into the season without a legit LT.

#2716103 Thoughts on melvin white

Posted by CajunTuffguy on 25 March 2014 - 06:13 PM

Not saying they would. Point is for a guy making the transition from the Sun Belt to the NFL he did pretty well. 


Actually, I've said it before, but it really isn't that big a surprise from the Cajuns.  In the NFL right now, the Cajuns have Mike Adams, Bill Bentley, Charles Tillman, Ike Taylor, and Melvin White on NFL Rosters right now.   We may not be a Power Conference school, but we sure as hell know how to produce some NFL level defensive back talent.  This is also why I wasn't entirely surprised by his progress.

#2712208 Other cornerback position?

Posted by CajunTuffguy on 22 March 2014 - 12:38 PM

We actually need a slot DB. Cason, White and Dockery is a good rotation outside. We need someone who can cover well from the slot.


My thoughts exactly.  I think it would actually be bad to bring in someone to take some time away from White who played every bit as good as any other Rookie CB last year and the last thing you want to do is put someone in front of him to take away from his on field time and hurt his development.  Now a nickel corner, absolutely, but honestly, right now, we're looking decent  in the secondary.  I still say, we will draft someone back there, but OT and WR will go much earlier.

#2702718 eagles not happy with Jackson

Posted by CajunTuffguy on 17 March 2014 - 03:56 PM

Brandin Cooks is 1 inch shorter but fresher legs, good hands, exciting playmaker and would be far cheaper.  Sorry, but Fug Jackson, no need for that cancer.
