I'm sure given his background Gantt thinks he's the next Marty Hurney, but I trust Gettleman to make evaluations more than Gantt. You don't luck into 12-4 with bad personnel and coaching

I don't think Gantt has an ace to grind with the Panthers per se, but he is not on the inside by any means at this point.

He tried his best to bury this team last after week 4. I think he is good for historical perspective on the Panthers bc he covered them for so long, but like him or not, Person is much more in tune with what's going on with the team at this point

In Topic: NFCS division records 2014?

Tampa looked good yesterday. Their defense is legit, if their offense can perform they could be better than us. Mike Evans looks good, and Doug Martin looks like he is completely healthy.

I'm not sold on Atlanta. Their receivers are good but their O-Line can't run block (but ours hasn't shown the ability to either) and their defense is trash. Will have to win shootouts.

Saints will be good- hard not to see them winning or being 2nd in the South. I think their defense may take a step back but they going to put up points.

The Panthers defense will be legit again and we will be in every game IMO except maybe the Saints in the Dome which always seem to be bad for us. Not sure what offense will be other than I doubt we will be setting the world on fire. The run blocking has to be better for the offense to click. TB in week 1 will be a good measuring stick bc their run defense has been very good the last few years.

The South is up for grabs. I think most people think the Saints look like the best team on paper but you can make the case for everyone else too. I just hope we come out to play Week 1 and get the win

In Topic: Jets Have Released Jacoby Ford - Bring Him In To Return Punts?

I thought Jacoby Ford would have a better career. I'm not totally sold on Philly Brown but Ford to me is like Tiquan Underwood. Has the speed to intrigue teams but never been reliable.

In Topic: 2 Tight End Sets

24 August 2014 - 08:34 AM

I honestly expect to see a heavy dose of two TE sets in the regular season. The only downside to it is that it takes Tolbert off the field. If we have two TEs and Tolbert as a single back, we are going to see a lot of stacked boxes because we don't have any speed on the field.

This. The Panthers ran a lot of 2 tight end sets in 2008 and 2011 but they had Smitty still able to keep the 8th guy out of the box bc of his speed. I don't think the Panthers receiving options (including TE's) are awful, but the group is one of and maybe the slowest overall group in the NFL right now.

I still think running 2 tight ends will present matchup problems and help the O-Line, but it is hard to see this offense being explosive.
