Derek Anderson ran it with success in Cleveland one year, and he had a Wonderlic of 19.


#1145686 Chico@4:15 on WFNZ today.

What's pretty clear in listening is that they both are very much against rookies starting early.


I got a totally different impression.

In a perfect world it's clear they would like to be able to sit a rookie. But Rivera emphasized that whoever they picked at one would be expected to make an impact on the team from day 1.

Seems he was dancing around the question so he wouldn't tip his hand as to whether or not they wanted to go QB with the first pick.

I think Rivera is keeping an open mind on the starting from day 1 idea.

I'm taking off running.

Screw football.


#1137309 Peter King: Panthers doing homework on Newton

Posted by Marguide on 11 April 2011 - 09:19 AM

And the same old threads keep being made.

Anyone speculates that the Panthers are taking Newton......a dozen Cam Nut Huggers piss themselves trying to make a new thread.


You need to get over your problem, whatever it is.

One of the best known sports columnists in the country writes about what the Panthers are doing leading up to their number 1 pick, and you don't think it is grounds for discussion in a Panthers forum?

I have now seen it all!


#1131668 Some more info.

Posted by Marguide on 07 April 2011 - 12:34 AM

Until Hurney comes out and talks about paring down his 7 prospects, or starts talking down the possibility of selecting a QB, I am not putting a lot of stock in the rumors, pro or con.

A couple of weeks ago, everyone had us taking Gabbert. Late last week and early this week, everyone was on the Cam train. The trending selection now seems to be Green.

As Hurney stated, the speculation is great because it keeps excitement in the fan base. Everyone just needs to remember it is no more than speculation.


#1131401 Our best potential trading partner?

Posted by Marguide on 06 April 2011 - 08:57 PM

I think it's going to be very difficult to trade down without a CBA in place. Without the CBA, teams are up in the air about who they could get via FA, and players can't be included in any deal. Even if you could trade the rights, they couldn't, for example, talk to someone like Carson Palmer about re-negotiating.

So with it being only straight draft picks, it will be hard for another team to give us enough value to move down. Yes, you could consider taking 2012 picks, but that is really risky at this point.

I know everyone is already aware of these factors, but there seems to be a bit of denial of how big an impact this CBA situation has on draft day deals.


#1127729 What if Cam is a Bust?

Posted by Marguide on 05 April 2011 - 03:00 AM

I am not even going to look up Vick's stats with the Falcons. All I know is I hated him with a vengeance.

Why? Because he repeatedly kicked our ass.


#1119317 Warren Moon sees racial bias regarding Cam Newton

Posted by Marguide on 31 March 2011 - 12:30 AM

i don't like black qbs because most of them aren't any good. it's not racism it's a pattern. i also didn't like when the bobcats drafted Adam Morrison due to him being a nonathletic white guy with diabetes.

doesn't mean there aren't any good black qbs or good white basketball players, but it's like taking a short qb. you might get dru brees but you might get the normal short qb who can't get the ball over the line.


Please explain to me why the bolded statement above isn't racist. I've got news for you my friend, most white QB's aren't any good either.

There are empirical reasons why short guys have problems at the QB position. Surely you can understand the difference between excluding someone because they are black, and excluding someone because they are short.


#1115276 The Sporting News Panther Draft needs

Posted by Marguide on 28 March 2011 - 11:19 PM

In just the last few hours, I have read that people are cooling on Dareus, that Fairley is falling, that Bowers could go outside the top 10, that PP isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer and will end up a safety, that Gabbert deserves a second round grade, that Newton's teammates don't like him, and on and on.

Leaves you to wonder if the lack of free agency and the lockout leaves too much time to pick apart the prospects.


#1112251 I'm Going to Laugh...

Posted by Marguide on 27 March 2011 - 02:38 AM

There is no legitimate reason to think Gabbert can't throw the deep ball. Newton's arm may be a bit stronger, but they both have plenty of strength to make any throw on the field.

Jeff Otah....competitive eating


#1109450 Mentoring young Cam

Posted by Marguide on 25 March 2011 - 12:08 AM

Everything I've read about his attitude from teamates, coaches, and media that has been around him is that he's great to be around.


That is exactly what I have seen as well. Nonetheless, it is good to keep an open mind.

One thing I am sure of...the Panthers have done and are doing an extensive investigation of anyone considered at number 1. If they thought he was a thug or someone who would be a negative influence, they wouldn't be spending so much time with him.

Some of this crap is just ridiculous.


#1103143 Source: Panthers leaning to stick w/Clausen & pick Dareus

Posted by Marguide on 21 March 2011 - 04:13 PM

Im not saying I want to suck, but Id rather suck with the proposition of becoming really good, than suck with the proposition of being nothing but mediocre.


I know you don't, and I apologize for using your post as an example. However, you can't pass a single day on these forums without people dragging out Luck.

He's gone, he made his choice. No matter how much any of us like him, he cannot be part of any equation regarding the Panthers.


#1102191 When did you realize that you loved football?

Posted by Marguide on 21 March 2011 - 03:16 AM

I grew up in St. Louis, and as Grits pointed out, in those days it was a hard core baseball town. Our heroes were Curt Flood and Bob Gibson. Football never entered into our thoughts at all.

In my teens, Monday Night Football had a big influence on the popularity of football. People lived and died to see their team included in the halftime highlights show. Howard Cosell was larger than life, and he, along with Merideth and Gifford, made football more than just a game. It became prime time entertainment, with big stars, and gorgeous cheerleaders and slow motion replay.

Since we were in St. Louis, we were Cardinals fans, and of course they always sucked. But every now and then, they would have a good game and it would make the MNF highlights, and man, that moment was special.

Other than the labor nonsense, the game today is better than ever, and I never get tired of it, win or lose.


#1093798 Patrick Peterson Meeting W/ Panthers Tonight

Posted by Marguide on 14 March 2011 - 10:54 PM

I really like Peterson as a player, but some scouts are complaining of his stiff hips and suggest that his eventual position is safety.

He could make an immediate impact on special teams and would be an upgrade over Marshall, stiff hips or no.

But I sure don't like the idea of using the first pick on someone that may very well end up as a safety. If we go defense, and I hope we don't, Dareus seems the better value.
