#3217743 Panthers dominate 2014 PFF All-NFC South Team

Posted by Marguide on 23 January 2015 - 06:06 AM

I understand this is a feel good thread so excuse me for seeing a negative side.


We are the most talented team in the South, no doubt. So what does it say about our coaching that we couldn't put together a more impressive w/l record? To me, this is another indication that we are not a well coached team. Hopefully, we'll still dominate over the next few years in spite of our coaching deficiencies.



#3214808 SI.COM redrafts first round - 4 panther rookies selected

Posted by Marguide on 20 January 2015 - 04:36 PM

Extremely impressive. I didn't like the Hardy rental, and felt we could have been more aggressive addressing the tackle position, but I love everything else Dave has done and is doing.


And hat's off to the whole organization when it comes to scouting and player selection.


Now if we could just trust the coaches to play the right guys before they are backed into a corner...

#3209926 Colts are gonna royally fug their salary cap

Posted by Marguide on 18 January 2015 - 02:52 PM

Given the QB market today, teams just need to budget $20 million a year for cap planning. You get a really good one, maybe it costs a little more. You get an average one, it costs a little less.


That's just the reality going forward, like it or not.

#3209470 Insider: Panthers have a leader and franchise QB in Cam Newton

Posted by Marguide on 18 January 2015 - 12:27 AM

My first instinct is to laugh at you, then I feel bad because you might be too thick to know any better.


It really is pathetic that some people have to go out of their way to criticize the QB of the team they supposedly support.


They are going to have a miserable 10 years going forward.

#3208321 Panthers in talks w/Josh Norman about extension

Posted by Marguide on 16 January 2015 - 08:27 PM

Those of you thinking north of $6 mil are out of your fugging minds.


He may turn out to be great, but we all thought Melvin White was the best thing since sliced bread last offseason. He still has a lot to prove and plays behind an exceptional front 7. Maybe 4-5 a year is reasonable.

#3206993 What does Gettleman do about Cam

Posted by Marguide on 15 January 2015 - 11:01 PM

Bend on one knee and thank Baby Jesus every day Cam is on the roster.


And that's just it in a nutshell.


Some people don't think rationally about how hard it is to find an upper tier QB in this league. Maybe Cam is in the top 5 in a year or so, or maybe he stays in the 5 to 12 range. Either way, those guys are very hard to find. 


Look at who's left in the playoffs. Brady, Rodgers, Wilson and Luck. Guys like that don't grow on trees. Maybe Cam belongs in that group or maybe he is somewhere outside of it. But he's someone to build around, and someone we can win with. 


The whole argument of "well, we're going to play hardball and if he doesn't sign, we'll just trade him away for picks and find our next QB" is incredibly naive. We'll end up with the next RGIII or Geno Smith or we'll go the vet route and end up with what Tampa had this year. 


Is that really what you want?

#3206578 What does Gettleman do about Cam

Posted by Marguide on 15 January 2015 - 05:17 PM

For TonyN and those of his ilk, all of us want to see a win-win deal get done, fair for both sides. No one wants either party to suffer from buyer's remorse a year or two into the contract.

However, trying to get Cam to agree to an Andy Dalton contract and drawing a line in the sand at that level would not end well for the team. Those wanting us to get back in the QB market to find one more suitable to their taste are the ones not thinking of the team's welfare.

#3195552 Lack of talent around Cam is showing

Posted by Marguide on 10 January 2015 - 11:32 PM

For those of you complaining about Cam tonight, keep in mind the Seahawks consistently make good QB's look bad. Think back to last year's Superbowl for a relevant example.

He really earned my respect tonight.


It's nice to know he can show up big in big game environments.

#3178551 Lions vs. Cowboys Gameday Thread

Posted by Marguide on 04 January 2015 - 07:06 PM

How long the Panthers have been around is irrelevant. A "three year old" has a "history." What does that have to do with anything. The Panthers have no name or identity that transcends anything. They have no mystique to counter "Lambo," and it will eat them alive if they have to go there prematurely (this weekend).


Sorry, but this is nothing short of a load of crap. 


Do you realize the Cowboys are the team with the least playoff experience on their current roster of any playoff team? So their guys won't be intimidated by this supposed mystique, but our guys will?


I'm just not buying any of this. If we go to Green Bay or Seattle and lose, it will be because they were the better team that day. Not because of some obscure "mystique".

#3178385 Lions vs. Cowboys Gameday Thread

Posted by Marguide on 04 January 2015 - 06:15 PM

Doesn't matter. It's not about the players on the teams. 


I'm sure I'm not the only one asking myself, "what the fug is this guy talking about". 


The Cowboy brand?


A 20 year old franchise that's been to the Super Bowl is too green?


It's time for you to "Think About It" a little more rationally.

#3165862 2014 Panthers Rookie Grades

Posted by Marguide on 31 December 2014 - 12:30 PM

Although he won't win it, KB is at least in the discussion for OROY. Given that, I don't see how he could be graded any lower than maybe a B+.


This is an exceptional rookie WR class. Benjamin performing more or less equal with the best of his peers indicates he'll be a big part of this team for years to come.


But yeah, the drops piss me off too.

#3160497 Praise for Bene

Posted by Marguide on 28 December 2014 - 10:24 PM

I have blasted Gettleman over the franchise tag for Hardy, but I have to admit the guy can spot talent. Trading up for Bene was a master stroke. He is a legit corner as a rookie. 


Between him and Norman, it looks like we are strong at the first two CB spots. Who would have thought it going into the year?


Posted by Marguide on 28 December 2014 - 07:21 PM

Simply brilliant. Drunk or sober, you always bring it.

#3150083 Who's better than Norman?

Posted by Marguide on 22 December 2014 - 10:13 PM

 Now the rubber meets the road against the red hot Falcons and their passing attack.


Red hot Falcons?


They are on a 1 game winning streak. If that's hot, we must be sizzling.
