#2993262 Per ESPN: Rivera says Cam and Luke "have to be perfect"

Posted by TheRed on Today, 06:20 PM

Ron has said some pretty questionable poo to the media so far this year, and it's not really helping.




#2988659 Even if this season ends up being horrible

Posted by TheRed on 29 September 2014 - 02:58 PM

Next year FA is terribly weak but the OT class should be deep if most of the guys do come out. I would feel confident enough to take Gurley or Melvin in the 1st, and grab an OT in the 2nd. Another one or two later in the draft as well.


Do you know what our cap will be next year?

 

I don't have our current cap #, but based on spotrac figures next year for players like CJ, Stewart, Willams, Davis, etc, we have some tough decisions to make in 2015 and 2016. Any possibly upgrades to the OL are going to need to be made through the draft in all likelihood.

Problem is we have contracts coming up for Cam, and Luke. So the window gets smaller and smaller to keep this group while having the cap space to also improve on it as well. People talk about the tv deal possibly raising the cap, but there's no guarantees there obviously.




#2988349 Hardy being advised to sit out season

At this point, is he even going to have that option? Also, Bleacher Report. Yeah.....




#2988074 Rivera: Team Will Look for Veteran Help at Running Back

Posted by TheRed on 29 September 2014 - 11:58 AM

It doesn't matter who we bring in, almost impossible to run behind this line. Rivera and the FO need to address the real issue and that's the OL.

 

I unfortunately have to agree. You know poo is rough when even Tolbert heads to IR.




#2987935 When will Cam heal?

Posted by TheRed on 29 September 2014 - 11:24 AM

I believe Rivera already stated that it is likely Cam will not be 100% until after the season.

 

What percentage is he currently at? Who knows for sure. Cam has said himself that he is doing okay, just sore. That's football.




#2987771 Dave Gettleman?

Posted by TheRed on 29 September 2014 - 10:32 AM

He's not incompetent, he doesn't need to be fired or any silliness like that. He's done a fine job so far, but he has not been without his mistakes. He is not infallible. There is a difference between being cautious and asking questions versus just immediately calling for his head.

 

Anyone who has been on this forum for years knows that as much utter hatred as Hurney's name receives here these days, it wasn't that long ago that this board was full of homers who praised his moves even when they were questionable. It's really not any different with Gettleman.




#2987046 "KB and Smith together would've been PHENOMENALLLLLLL!"

Posted by TheRed on 28 September 2014 - 11:57 PM

And you can suck him off all you want....

He still sucked last year & cutting him was the right move.

 

I don't think you are coming off quite bitter enough man, might want to take it up a notch.




#2986979 "KB and Smith together would've been PHENOMENALLLLLLL!"

Posted by TheRed on 28 September 2014 - 11:15 PM

Seems some Panthers fans are pretty desperate to convince themselves that they don't need Steve Smith.

 

I mean it's not like he just dropped 139 yards with a pair of touchdowns on our D resulting in a blowout loss or anything.




#2986141 Anderson is a better option than Cam right now

Posted by TheRed on 28 September 2014 - 07:21 PM

Navy Football believes he's hurt badly enough that continuing to play him is counterproductive.

I disagree, but understand the rationale.


Well, unless he is a doctor, or has spoken with Newton, Rivera, or the medical staff personally, I put virtually no stock in that. It's an opinion.


#2985949 Riverboat Ron?

Posted by TheRed on 28 September 2014 - 06:49 PM

I like Ron, but I said it when it happened that a 3 year contract was a bit too much after only 1 winning season. We should have given him a 1 year deal to prove himself and then moved forward long term from there. It's a legitimate question as to just how much of our success last season was fueled by the emotion of the uncertainty of Rivera's future. The whole team seems complacent again honestly.


#2985875 Anderson is a better option than Cam right now

Posted by TheRed on 28 September 2014 - 06:38 PM

If we're going to use this argument that we should sit players because they might get hurt, we may as well not bother to field a team at all on game days. Newton is only 25, he needs the reps. You don't sit him if he's healthy because you've done a pathetic job at building an OL, you go out and make a move, there are still 12 more games to play, we are 2-2. If he says he is healthy enough to play, and the medical staff agrees with that, then he should play. Unless these folks are trying to argue that they know better than the man himself and the medical staff.


#2985606 Has The Outlook On Hardy Changed (From A Pure Football Perspective)?

Posted by TheRed on 28 September 2014 - 05:32 PM

Seems pretty clear the difference he made to our defense.

If he's found not guilty he should sue the NFL and these media outlets that have repeatedly slandered his name.


#2985470 Anderson is a better option than Cam right now

Posted by TheRed on 28 September 2014 - 05:13 PM

Truth hurts, people can get upset but we've been reading bullshit like this since before we even drafted Newton.

Enough is enough.

Like you could have done with this thread?


After all the back and forth you've done over in numerous threads over Andrew Luck, this is pretty ironic.
