Greg Hardy should receive no discipline and the NFL should clear him immediately, based on the Judge Doty ruling.

Sorry if this is too soon but does anyone know how much we save with this move?


$2m if he's designated a June 1 cut.

AKA bye Greg, sorry DGB.

#3243457 FO on ESPN: CAR should sign Michael Crabtree

Posted by UNCrules2187 on 16 February 2015 - 11:54 AM

Carolina Panthers: Sign Michael Crabtree
Given the skill set of quarterback Cam Newton, it's not a shock that the Carolina Panthers offense has been built around the run more than the pass since he was drafted No. 1 overall in 2011. For four straight seasons, the Panthers' offense has ranked higher in run offense DVOA than in pass offense DVOA. Last year, their running game dipped to 17th in DVOA after three straight years in the top 10. But their pass offense was even worse, ranked just 23rd.
Drafting Kelvin Benjamin last year gave the Panthers a size/speed freak to line up at one receiver spot, the kind of talent defenses need to game-plan against. The next step is to fill the other spot with the kind of receiver who can specifically take advantage of defenses that are either sitting in zone to prevent Newton scrambles, leaving a safety deep to prevent the bomb to Benjamin, or both.
That's where Michael Crabtree comes in. The former San Francisco first-round pick is the kind of excellent route-runner who eats up zone coverages. He doesn't have deep speed, but he's very quick to separate at the break of his routes. Newton is better at throwing from the pocket than most fans realize, and better at throwing with anticipation and hitting receivers after their breaks.
Crabtree struggled in our advanced metrics in 2014, with a below-average DVOA, but that's likely a product of the overall struggles of the entire San Francisco offense. Crabtree was above-average in DVOA each year from 2010 through 2013, finishing sixth in total value by our DYAR (defense-adjusted yards above replacement) stat in 2012. As an added bonus, Crabtree is an above-average run blocker on the perimeter, a must for the Carolina offense. It could be just the right fit to help the Panthers follow up their first-ever repeat NFC South title with a first-ever third straight NFC South title.





I'm on board. He should come relatively cheap compared to the higher profile guys on the market (Dez, DT, Cobb, Maclin, T. Smith).

#3232707 Cam Turner joins Panthers staff

Posted by UNCrules2187 on 05 February 2015 - 10:42 PM



going to need you to elaborate on the bolded text


I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for last season given the personnel he was working with and some of the games being more on Ron (ATL at home, tie @ CIN). With an upgrade (either through FA or the draft) at OT and WR likely coming, he'll need to put together a much more impressive showing.

If Shula sucks next season, what if they promote Proehl to OC? Just a thought.

#3230071 Rivera reassigns special teams coach Rodgers, promotes DeHaven

Posted by UNCrules2187 on 03 February 2015 - 06:21 PM

He was good back in the 80s and 90s but hasn't stuck anywhere more than a couple of years after being fired for the Music City Miracle?


Did you read the post?


In 2012 during DeHaven's last season with Buffalo, the Bills led the league with a 17.1-yard punt return average, and were fourth with a 27-yard kick return average. Both marks were franchise records.


#3225735 OT: Somebody voted for Bobby wagner, not JJ watt for MVP

Posted by UNCrules2187 on 01 February 2015 - 11:36 AM

He also only played in 11 games. It was a fuging ridiculous vote all around. Honestly, whoever did it should have their vote stripped. If you're not gonna take your duties seriously, then give it up to someone who will.

Put me in the camp of this guy's legend being better than his reality.


I don't think he had any role last year whatsoever.



#3216902 Carolina Panthers 2015 NFL Draft Roundup - Round 1

Posted by UNCrules2187 on 22 January 2015 - 11:29 AM

I know OT is a big need, but when I see these mocks, I think back to what Getts said to Voth:


 “If you have a guy here in a position you need, and you have three guys up here at various positions that are all much better prospects than this guy, you can’t reach down here. When you reach you get in trouble.”


I really don't think an OT worthy of a 1st will be available. I think some of these guys like Collins and Flowers will end up going higher than they're projected.


Pending moves made in FA, WR or DE will be the pick IMO.
