Cam's Ankle

01 October 2014 - 06:53 PM

I've said it before I'll say it again: this is the sneaky story line under the steaming pile of crap- steve smith, hardy, and injuries. 

 

We all overlooked this surgery, and apparently Cam did too.

Zod's evidence is that he is running around pregame goofing off which is all fine and good, but is 100% less intense and less psychologically challenging than playing in an NFL game. It probably doesn't hurt to walk around on, but getting twisted to the ground by a 300 pound man will get the job done. 

 

I love Cam and will never question either his: toughness, love for the game, or commitment to winning. This post isn't about that.

 

Right now things might look bad, but we're all focusing on stuff that is going to (eventually) go away/get resolved. But if Cam does serious damage to his ankle - very possible with all the hits he is taking- things go from marginally bad to nuclear. Cam's health is paramount to this franchise's future.  

 

Throw in a fluke rib injury and I'm not surprised the coaching staff is hellbent on Cam staying in the pocket. The problem there is- our offense line isn't creating a pocket.

 

For all of you with their PhD we have:

healing ankle of the pillar of our franchise + possibly the worst Panther's offensive line ever = bad. 

 

Let's all hope this young offensive line improves exponentially as the season progresses.

Rant Incoming. 

 

I moved to Blacksburg, VA in July. My apartment complex has a contract with AM3. I have literally had NON-STOP issues with this company. While I am supposed to be getting 30 mbps download speed, my internet never reaches those speeds and furthermore, during peak hours, I find myself getting 0.10 mbps. I have spent so many fuging hours calling and emailing people. I have contacted my leasing company. I have even talked to the mother fuging CEO of the company. 

 

Today they called to yet again try and boost my speeds. Somehow they made a horrible situation worse, and now my wifi doesn't work at all. 

 

I'm literally so exhausted and honestly depressed from dealing with this problem. 

 

NEVER EVER EVER deal with this company unless you absolutely have to, and for the love of god if anyone has any advice hit met with it.

Worst Unit on this Team

23 August 2014 - 11:23 AM

This is not 'the sky is falling thread', this is just an honest look at our team. 

 

Nationally, the only thing you hear about the Panthers is that they have zero wide receivers yadda yadda. This is a very superficial look at this squad, as you well know we are returning our number one receiving option from last year: Greg Olsen. Couple that with KB's incredible rookie performance thus far, the addition of savvy vets: Crotchery and Avant, and the elevated level of play from Bersin- we can all agree WR will be as good as last year if not better. 

 

The O-line has gotten a lot of grief and attention this offseason, and rightly so. I have no doubt Gettleman is watching the waiver wire looking for decent players for depth right now. But we might just luck out with a serviceable starting line, provided we can stay healthy. We lucked out nabbing Trai Turner in the third, who by all accounts is going to be a stud. Amini was playing great last year prior to injury. Tackle is weak, but Bell has shown that he can play with the big boys- consistency will come with more reps. Chandler has proven just about everyone wrong and in a little over a year has switched from DT to OG to RT. Counting him out would seem foolish. 

 

O-line isn't the worst unit on our team: safety is. Now before your jimmies get too rustled, the offensive line is MORE important than the safety unit, but good god does it look pitiful. I had high hopes for Lester this season, as he played pretty well sparingly last year, but man he looks to have regressed and is now injured. Anderson Russell has gotten beat consistently in the preseason. Harper has turf toe and with his age that sounds like an IR season. Collin Jones is a fantastic special teams player, but isn't an NFL safety. TBH haven't seen anything positive or negative from Decoud. So that gives us exactly one unknown at safety (Decoud) and a whole lot of nothing to straight up bad. You know it's rough when your best safety might be one that was never very good to begin with, is coming off an Achilles tear, and is trying to make the team as a nickel back. 

 

I think Rivera really values a good player at the safety position. We were rumored to be a contender to sign Eric Weddle when Rivera first got here. Had he been on the board, we might have taken Mark Barron OVER Kuechly, and would have definitely taken him had Kuech gone to Tampa. We overdrafted Tre Boston, a decent prospect, but not a 4th round pick. Speaking of 4th round- is that the coaches round. Kugbila was apparently a coaches pick. So if Rivera values a good safety, does that mean his schemes depend on having a leader/playmaker there?

 

Last year, Mike Mitchell really stepped up for us at the safety position and our defense was all the better for it. Obviously we weren't going to be able to keep Mitchell, but if someone doesn't step up back there soon it's going to put a ton of pressure on our d-line and CBs.
