#2914863 Other NFL cuts of interest....

Posted by Ruff on Yesterday, 12:09 PM

@RapSheet: #Falcons are releasing LB Pat Angerer, I’m told. Also cut LB Yawin Smallwood, their 7th rounder. A bit surprising on Angerer, who is healthy

Pat Angerer would be an incredible back-up.
Way better than Ben Jacobs.

#2914707 Panthers Cuts - 8-29

Posted by Ruff on Yesterday, 10:33 AM

I would like to see us cut down to about 49, and wait until after cuts and grab some pieces, or maybe even after the first week, so we don't have to offer any guaranteed money to veterans.

#2914676 MMQB: Expect Panthers to take Substantial Step Back

Posted by Ruff on Yesterday, 10:10 AM

To be fair, Cam does have inconsistent footwork. But, overall, the article talks about how our team overachieved. Using overachievement as a staple for your argument, when you can't measure it or apply it to any of the other teams, is a weak basis for an argument.

How'd Jefferson go on IR when the man just caught a TD?


IR is an easy way to stash players that you don't either a) want to cut or B) want to put on practice squad. 

#2909160 Who is the Panthers emergency QB?

Posted by Ruff on 25 August 2014 - 04:01 PM

I don't think we should pull someone from attendance to play. That just sounds awful.

Couldn't be any worse than Blanchard.

For OT depth, watch the Lions.  They are stacked at OT for days.


So are the Titans.

#2907162 Cam not playing Thurs, has rib injury

Posted by Ruff on 24 August 2014 - 03:50 PM

what's the eta on that healing up

is that something that can linger into the opener

Rib injuries are hard to judge, they heal weirdly.

#2906152 I contended Deangelo is the 3rd best RB on the team

Posted by Ruff on 24 August 2014 - 12:13 AM

Stats don't tell the whole story. Fred was splitting with CJ Spiller and still managed about 900 yards and 9 touchdowns. Jordan Gross was not prevalent in the run game last year. We had one elite interior lineman in Kalil and the other two were crap be it Scott or Chandler or whoever was in at any given time. DeAngelo had huge long screen passes for TDs and big runs that contributed to wins like against the Niners and Saints. He still had it last year and still does this year. Way better than Fozzy.

Fozzy had a chance in Cleveland and made absolutely nothing of it. You clearly don't know much about his history.

It actually is Fozzy vs. DeAngelo. People here are saying Fozzy should get more playing time than him and are saying he is better, which is just wrong. If we had to choose who to keep for the next five years, then it'd be young vs old. But that's not the case. It's who will be the best and most productive THIS year. And that is hands down DeAngelo, no discussion.


Fozzy didn't get a chance with a Chud offense. Which, sounds familiar, doesn't it? In fact, our RBs (who have complained about Chud not giving them opportunities) know more about than than you would.


The truth of the matter is this chart:




Notice where DWill is? His average, excluding a statistical anomaly (like Fred Jackson you keep harping on, you know, because exceptions != the rule), would be around the 500-550 yard mark according to prevalent stats across the entire fuging history of the NFL.


You keep getting caught up on this whole DWill/Fozzy thing. It's not that. It's DWill versus Father Time. It's the natural break down of the human body.


If you can't understand that, then I'm sorry.

Can we pin this thread?

#2905662 I contended Deangelo is the 3rd best RB on the team

Posted by Ruff on 23 August 2014 - 05:32 PM

So, is there a rule against using miss-direction? Or running off tackle? Or even starting from under center instead of in the shot-gun? Play action can be a useful tool. Screen passes work well, when they actually use them.

Folks just zero in on the negative, and have tunnel vision with the positive. Heaven forbid a RB get stuffed. Folks love it when our D stuffs a RB, but hate it when it our RB that gets stuffed.

IF used correctly. DWill and Stewy can still compliment each other very well. But hellz, that won't fly here on the Huddle where negativity and hyperbole rule.

Another thing. Get Turner back, and those dive plays just might be effective. I can say might be. Most folks just say won't be. See the difference?

You bring up a really good question. Why do we not use more screen plays? I mean, sure, we use them, but not to a degree of other teams, and especially since our running game is suffering.

Remember when the coaching staff thought that too and started Stewart? What happened? O yea he didn't do poo either. The backup always looks better until they're made to do it every down.

Stew should look better right now, I've seen more of him in commercials than on the field the last few years.

Who gets the official "start" for the Panthers at RB hasn't mattered since 2008.
