as long as he has an elite front 7 in front of him, sure.
Yep. Our DB's looked so good last year because the front line was creating havoc. Nobody wanted or respected Munnerlyn until he was able to prey on the wounded and confused instead of untouched backs and WR's.
The more the media and other teams put us down, the better I like it, 'cause I don't see the team buying into it. As for this latest bit of Panther disrespect, I can't take anyone seriously who uses 'right' in place of 'write'.
I like this ranking better, and it's from Sept. 12th, 2013. Accurate prediction of DPOY too.
"Top shelf: Luke Kuechly, Patrick Willis, Sean Lee
ESPN "Monday Night Football" analyst Jon Gruden, who presumably remains well-connected in league circles, confidently stated a few weeks ago that 31 general managers would trade their middle linebacker for Kuechly, the reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. The Carolina Panthers star has taken the torch from Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher as the new model for the middle linebacker, capable of covering tight ends and tailbacks and chasing down quarterbacks in the read-option. Don't be surprised if Kuechly makes a serious run at Defensive Player of the Year honors." http://www.nfl.com/n...backer-rankings
Don't know why people here take offense to the media disrespecting our wr corps. It's a good thing. It means more pressure on the GM to do a better job.
Well if the media is right, then Gman did a crappy job. They're saying he got rid of a solid WR corps and brought in a bunch of losers. I think that opinion will end up being crap, and he'll be credited with doing a great job, considering what he had to work with. I don't see any way the current group won't be better than last year's.
There seems to be a consensus from the shallow end of the pool that Gman doomed the team to missing the playoffs this season by letting all the WR's leave. What we had was one legit starting WR, at the tail end of his career, along with some guys whose names will be forgotten in a few years. If you take the time to look at the current crop, and stack 'em up against last year's crew, I think we're better off now, top to bottom. We may even get decent performance from the OL, despite the absence of Gross.
There may not be 12 wins in the cards this year, but I don't see the team regressing that much.
There would have to be a serious reversal in the W/L record for Ron's seat to get hot, and if things go wrong and people start asking 'what's wrong with the Panthers?', Rivera likely won't be the first thing that comes to mind.
Seems like something kind of trivial to get upset about.
Who says anyone is upset? I can put out a post that makes it seem like I've got steam coming from my ears, but I just might be laughing the whole time. And what kind of football news in early June isn't trivial anyway? Seems like a lot of effort on your part just to put other Huddlers down.
Is Cotchery actually a red zone threat? I was always under the impression his 10 TDs last year were a fluke, not the result of any particular skill he has. Can anyone comment on this? I didn't exactly watch many PITTSBURGH STILLERZ games last year so I don't know him that well.

How is catching 10 TD passes a fluke? They used him as a possession receiver and he made the catches. Cotchery was never a super speedy receiver, but he broke Tory Holt's records at NC State for career 100 yd. games and receptions. You can bet he'll contribute this season.
