#1689388 Leeroy's Panther draft prediction

Posted by Leeroy Jenkins PhD on 15 March 2012 - 01:28 PM

I think best case scenario would be to trade down with New England and see if we can pull Brokers/Poe/still and Jenkins in the late 1st

I am not so sure it is about our lack of cap space. Our NFL front office has been historically very good about manipulating the current contracts and cap management.

If we were 30 million under, do you think we would have brought in any of the top tier FA's? Most likely not. That is the way of the Panthers and one of the reasons I love this team. I agree with their strategy. The second we pay Mario Williams 100+ million dollars when he has never done anything for our Franchise is the second I question the intelligence of our front office.

You pay players for their performance on their initial contracts. You reward those individuals who have been performing for you. Not some DE with no team loyalty trying to sell his services to the highest bidder. At least that is my opinion. I like the way our team does business.

The Panthers are not making any large FA signings. Let me try and explain a couple of reasons why for those of you who think the sky is falling.

A. Spending large amounts in FA is a recipe for disaster. On the positive side, you are getting a player who has proven himself in the NFL, but, you are also paying much more for a player who is most likely reaching the middle/end of their career and competing with other NFL for high caliber FA’s will no doubt drive the price up. With certain franchises willing to drastically overpay for the top talent, it is a better strategy to allow those teams to max their spending limits early and find talent that might be overlooked.

B. Our team is relatively young. If you think about the positions we would be targeting in FA, we also have young talented players already in the mix at most of those positions. Why would we bring in an older veteran player to compete with the youth we have already established. Especially when you consider that our couching staff is entering their second year and did not have a full offseason to work with the young players. I expect big improvement out of Fua, Bell, Hogan, Kearse, Keiser, McClain, Stanford and numerous other 2nd year players who will have a full offseason of weight training, conditioning, and learning the system

C. It is hard to bring in a veteran player at a position where we have players coming off injuries. If we brought in a veteran replacement and the injured player recovers fully from his ailment, we have wasted cap space. Don’t forget that we finished the season with 18 players on IR. The most notable being Beason, Davis, Edwards, Gettis, Otah, Goodson, and numerous others.

TLDR: We are not entering the FA bidding market because: FA’s cost more than they are worth due to overspending franchises, our team is young and entering their 2nd year under a new coaching staff with no offseason training last year, we have 18 players coming off injury who need to be evaluated.

Ya know, its funny. I know Guy Whimper, RT from the Jaguars personally. If we did or didn't have a conversation about the status of Del Rio and Garrard over the summer, I would not go public with that information.

It was (or wasn't) a conversation between friends. Whoever this "source" is, I hope he knows his words are being spread over the internet.

#1579383 Bring in Peyton Hillis as FB?

Posted by Leeroy Jenkins PhD on 23 December 2011 - 04:02 PM

We need to bring in Bolt at WR and Shaq at TE. Get a couple professional sumo wrestlers to come play on the line. Hmmm, Chuck Norris would make a great kicker. I love threads like these.

#1242984 Did Richardson set us up for success

Posted by Leeroy Jenkins PhD on 23 June 2011 - 01:48 PM

I truly believe that after the success at the end of the 2009 season, JR really thought we could win with our young talent. If you remember that end stretch where almost every veteran was on IR, we won 4 of the last 5 games. This was with Matt Moore at QB. I even believed we had a good young team. and who is to say he was wrong. The coaching in 2010 was probably the worst attempt at NFL coaching in the history of the league. Aside from Ron Meeks and the defense, offensivly we tossed in the towel in week 2!

Davidson and Fox were the worst possibly coaches I have seen in my history of watching the NFL!!

I am not completely sure he thought we were tanking that season. I think he (JR) believed we could win games with what we had on our roster. I don't think JR could have comprehended the sheer idiocy our coaching staff would present week in and out in 2010.

I also agree that he didn't think there would be football this year. It explains why he allowed our team to fall apart. With no moves in FA and not signing any contract extensions, he was protecting his wallet for a year without football.

In hindsight, with the likelyhood of football being played this year, his decisions look foolish.

Hopefully flooding the market with FA's will allow for a buyers market for the teams with money to spend. If we can bring back our core talent for cheap, due to the fact that there will be so many available FA's, this could leave us cap room to really improve our team.

Posted by Leeroy Jenkins PhD on 31 May 2011 - 04:38 PM

And Mills, as one of two returning coaches on the staff along with Meeks, is the "gum" in the gumbo.

Who puts gum in gumbo?

Imagine how many picks we will get for our #1 draft pick next year when teams try to trade up for Andrew Luck!!

#1160669 Invest in 2012

Posted by Leeroy Jenkins PhD on 25 April 2011 - 11:25 AM

One of the reasons New England can afford the luxury of stock piling picks every year is bc they have a top 2 QB in the league, maybe top 1 :lol:.

Well, ya got me there. but wouldnt it be nice to trade our #1 pick this year for a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd next year. and woulnd't it be great to win the lottery, or just pick up Peyton Manning...... Man, this draft needs to get here fast, I just need some kinda football and arena league doesn't cut it!

#1145417 Dwayne Harris

Posted by Leeroy Jenkins PhD on 15 April 2011 - 04:01 PM

Harris is not projected to be drafted untill the 5th or 6th round. He would be a steal! Anyone who follows ECU football could tell you that, he is the ECU offense.

ECU players are usually severly underrated in the draft, look at Chris Johnson. Everyone was suprised to see him drafted in the 1st round and he is one of the best RB's in the NFL now.

Harris is an amazing play maker and punt returner.


He could be the next SS. I am telling you, we could draft him at the end of the 4th and he would still be a steal.

What do the huddle experts think?
