#3302688 Panthers claim OT Jonathan Martin

Posted by bigdog10 on 27 March 2015 - 05:55 PM

I'm all for giving guys fresh starts. It worked for Ginn and Mitchell


#3284894 Compensatory picks and the long game

Posted by bigdog10 on 14 March 2015 - 10:04 PM

I like Ozzie, but giving Flacco the contract he got was one of the more asinine moves I've seen


The hate for Flacco is media/fantasy football driven.

The dude is a winner and is absolutely clutch in the post season.

He's not going to put up gaudy numbers but he puts his team in a position to win the game more than he does to lose them.


#3279234 Gettleman: Oher can be answer at left tackle

Posted by bigdog10 on 12 March 2015 - 09:52 AM

I really like our GM, but if I'm being honest, we've all seen how our possible answers at OL have panned out

 

You mean like Norwell, Turner, and Remmers???

 

or are you like 95% of the other over-reactors here that just focus on the failed LT experiment with Bell and Chandler?

 

DG has drastically improved the state of our line in his first two seasons and (like it or not) he just upgraded the LT position by letting Bell walk.  Granted, a stationary tackling dummy would be an upgrade over Bell, but Oher is an upgrade.  Furthermore, he's paired Oher with his old OL coach.  If there is anyone in the league that knows how to get the best out of Oher, it is going to be him.

 

I don't love the idea of Oher being our best option at LT, but i'm happy that the Byron Bell experiment has finally come to an end and excited to see if Oher can be coached up to his prior playing level.




#3276004 Which Panther becomes CONSENSUS elite this season?

Posted by bigdog10 on 10 March 2015 - 09:01 PM

Thomas Davis.  The Man of the Year award will open some eyes and he will get some additional commentary.

 

Being beside Luke will be a big help.  Think how Navarro Bowman's name became household when he was paired with Willis.




#3275996 The NFC South has not given Gettleman a reason to go out into free agency.

Posted by bigdog10 on 10 March 2015 - 08:59 PM

People really think the Seahawks got the better end of the trade?

 

They got an extremely overpriced tight end whos is a great player, but not necessarily a need in Seattle (especially with what Luke Wilson has brought to the table).

 

Meanwhile, they parted ways with a good offensive lineman and a first round draft pick.

 

I hate the saints as much as the rest and I'm glad that we don't have to see Jimmy Graham get away with push-off after push-off in our division, but the Saints helped themselves with that deal.  Don't believe me, just go take a look at the cap hits Jimmy had left on his contract.

I'm actually going. Brother is a senior at chapel hill. Dad and I are riding up tomorrow.


#3266445 Panthers Sign Michael Oher

Posted by bigdog10 on 06 March 2015 - 04:08 PM

I've got no problem with the signing.

 

I think Gettleman has shown that he is not content at any position and will look to upgrade with players as he sees fit.  This is a low risk (considering we are coming off of having the worst starting lineman in the league play of this team) signing. 

 

I don't really think it is fair to judge him on his time with the titans.  The Titans were a dumpster fire from top to bottom and were easily the worst team in the league last year (I honestly believe the bucs would beat them 8 out of 10 times if they played).




#3245084 Who are the Panthers all time running backs?

Posted by bigdog10 on 17 February 2015 - 10:47 PM

Unfortunately, Williams name is tarnished around these parts due to the stupid amount of money Hurney gave him.

Williams is easily the greatest panther rb to ever do it. His 2008 season is among some of the best of all time, all the while splitting carries. Granted he is not the type of back to completely carry a workload and needed Stewart shouldering some of the load.

I hope Stewart can stay healthy and overtake him


#3243123 Random Panther Memories

Posted by bigdog10 on 15 February 2015 - 10:34 PM

Hoovers MNF huge game against the packers

Beating the falcons with weinke and the wildcat.

Steve Smith catching a td pass against the giants and breaking his forearm

Moose going nuts in San Fran in 2004 with 3tds.

Obliterating the redskins in the preseason of 2008. That was essentially the birth of double trouble.

If TD doesn't win, we riot.


#3224129 What is the #1 headline you want to hear this offseason?

Posted by bigdog10 on 30 January 2015 - 11:57 AM

"Evidence unveils massive and elaborate Patriots cheating scheme. Patriots forced to vacate prior titles. Rams, Panthers, and Eagles awarded Lombardis. Parades to follow"


#3215640 So tell me

Posted by bigdog10 on 21 January 2015 - 11:17 AM

For me it is not hating the team.  I envy them.  They are exactly what I want the Panthers to become.  I think Wilson is over hyped, but all he does is make plays.  The Seattle defense is among the greatest to ever play the game.  Especially in today's game where the rules have been altered to cater to the offense.

 

I'm sick of the 12th man garbage, and the seismologist explanations of how the earth moved when Lynch ran it in against the Saints.  I think the whole thing is overdone.  Seattle has some great fans, but their noise is more attributed to creative stadium design rather than "the 12's"

Clearly the Seahawks have sold their souls to the devil


#3209566 Any thoughts on Jamison Crowder from Duke?

Posted by bigdog10 on 18 January 2015 - 08:15 AM

He's worth taking in the fifth. The guy is a great returner and catches everything.

He's been the second biggest reason for dukes recent success. The first obviously being the head coach.


#3208813 Someone please just humor me and answer this...

Posted by bigdog10 on 17 January 2015 - 12:33 PM

The "high-character" thing is such a farce. It's the NFL. If you fielded a team full of guys with no records, you'd have the worst team in the history of the league. I also don't think Jerry really cares about that - I think it's something the media has propagated. Hell, the starting quarterback was sanctioned for theft in college. 

 

It's also an incredibly lazy way to run an organization.  Some of these young guys need someone to invest in them and help make them better.  

 

That is one of the great things about the NFL.  It gives some guys the chance to make a great living and impact their current and family situations where otherwise they may not have that chance.

 

By only drafting "good" and "clean" guys, you miss the opportunity to really help make the change.

 

I'm not an advocate of drafting all low character, but with strong leaders in your locker room and a strong coaching staff, i think you can really make an impact on some of these guys.
