Every time a player gets released I see one of these threads.  However, I actually believe Langford would be a good pick-up for Carolina and a Gettleman type player.  He is 6'6" 315lb 29 year old DT who was buried behind a lot of talent.  With the emergence of Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers his 6 million cap hit was expendable.

Early odds on next years superbowl

02 February 2015 - 11:50 AM

The Panthers continue to get little respect around the NFL.  Even after finishing the season on a 4 game win-streak and making some noise in the playoffs.  Even after having 8 rookies contribute substantially during that stretch.  Even after having no significant FA to resign.  Panthers are 45-1 to win the super bowl.  To give that a little perspective, here are the other teams and their odds:

 

SEAHAWKS: 6-1 
PATRIOTS: 7-1 
PACKERS: 8-1 
BRONCOS: 12-1 
COLTS: 12-1 
COWBOYS: 18-1 
EAGLES: 25-1 
SAINTS: 30-1 
49ERS: 30-1 
STEELERS: 30-1 
LIONS: 30-1 
RAVENS: 30-1 
BENGALS: 35-1 
RAMS: 40-1 
CHIEFS: 40-1 
CARDINALS: 40-1 
CHARGERS: 40-1 
GIANTS: 40-1 
PANTHERS: 45-1 
DOLPHINS: 45-1 
FALCONS: 50-1 
TEXANS: 50-1 
BEARS: 60-1 
VIKINGS: 60-1 
BILLS: 70-1 
BROWNS: 70-1 
JETS: 125-1 
REDSKINS: 140-1 
BUCS: 200-1 
TITANS: 300-1 
JAGS: 300-1 
RAIDERS: 300-1

 

The simple fact that the Saints, Giants, and Rams have better odds than us is mystifying!

QB Trade Speculation (Tin Foil Hats Needed)

08 September 2014 - 06:51 AM

Lets look at a couple facts and see what we can make of them.  Feel free to put down your copy of "Catcher and the Rye" and put on your tin foil hat. 

 

The Panthers have 3 QBs on their roster for the first time since I can remember. Makes sense with Cams offseason filled with surgery and rib fractures. 

 

However, with Cam healing from his ailments, that would make a backup QB expendable at this point.  Both DA and J-Webb have proven to be capable back-ups. 

 

The Panthers have been clearing cap space for no apparent reason.

 

Cam likely could have started week 1, but there may have been some pressure to showcase a back-up QBs talents.  It may not have been the main reason, or a reason at all but, it may have played a role in the decision.

 

OK, conspiracy mode over, what do you think.  Are the Panthers preparing to trade away one of the back-up QBs?
