#2640480 Is NFL games being thrown

Posted by Marguide on 02 February 2014 - 10:40 PM

No, they isn't.




#2638789 Rivera Wins Coach of the Year

Posted by Marguide on 01 February 2014 - 10:19 PM

Outstanding. 

 

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Glad he morphed into a good coach too.




#2638785 Luke Wins DPOY

Posted by Marguide on 01 February 2014 - 10:14 PM

Well, I was right pre-draft about Cam, but I was dead wrong about Luke, and then later on, I was wrong on Rivera. But I couldn't be happier.

 

The guy is a star, and he deserves every accolade he gets. So proud of what this team accomplished this year.




#2636712 D.Will will appear on First Take today

Cam threw a 40 yard pass to shockey in a preseason game while his legs were taken out from underneath him shockey dropped it though that was one of the best throws ive ever seen

 

I remember that also.

 

Cam makes throws that no one else in the league can make (with the possible exception of Stafford). The throw to Ginn in the 4th qtr comeback against NO this year was one of the most incredible passes I've seen, and that covers many years of watching the NFL.

 

Some of the people here don't appreciate what a unique QB we have. Sure, he makes an errant throw now and again, just like any other QB, but he also makes some throws that are flat out jaw-dropping.




#2636285 Greg Hardy says Panther negotiations yet to begin.

Posted by Marguide on 30 January 2014 - 06:52 PM

I sure Gettleman is working through our roster, evaluating each piece, and talking to our FA's to get a sense of their expectations. He also has to talk to guys like Gross, and Wharton, and maybe even D. Edwards and Cole, to see if they want to play another year.

All of those data points will, in part, determine what kind of offer DG is willing to give Hardy.

I'm glad the FO is being methodical. As fans, all we can do is patiently wait.

"I said before it was the pick they had to make because of their situation but I just don't see it working out. I think 3 years from now when they've moved on from Cam they'll wish they had taken Von, Dareus, or even Gabbert, who is a far superior QB at this time."

 

Any and all analysts that had Gabbert ranked above Cam lost all credibility with me, and yes, that includes Mayock (at least when it comes to QB's).

 

I am an absolute amateur, but it was obvious with just a little bit of study that Cam was far superior to Gabbert.

 

These guys get too hung up on how these guys look throwing the ball in shorts with no pass rush. Turn on the college tape of Cam and then turn on some film of Gabbert, and it was very clear who was the superior player and prospect.




#2634536 Rivera signs 3 year contract extension

Posted by Marguide on 29 January 2014 - 08:31 AM

we better have another winning season next year.

 

i didn't want any extensions until he could show he can deliver back to back winning seasons. 

 

i really hope this works out. until i see those results i'll still have my doubts.

 

consecutive winning seasons have to take place. no excuses.

 

Have to disagree. We don't even know what kind of team we will field this year. Putting it all on Rivera is not appropriate. Gettleman  has at least as much to do with where we go from here as Ron.

 

Everybody wants continued success and yes, we should expect it from the organization. A big part of that puzzle is stability in our coaching staff. 

 

Should Ron fail next year (I don't expect that), then the onus is on Jerry and Gettleman to bite the bullet and eat the rest of the contract. But we had to extend him or it would send all the wrong messages to the players and the rest of the league.




#2634407 Something Cam needs to work on this offseason

Posted by Marguide on 28 January 2014 - 11:20 PM

When I said Manning I meant the Manning of now, You a smart one. 

 

As we look to the future, just one more thing to consider...the throw Cam made to Ginn in the 2nd NO game to start the winning drive was one Manning could not make. Frankly, I'm not sure there is another QB in the league with the strength to make that laser throw while being slapped in the face other than Cam.

 

Manning is great, but I fully expect Cam to be just as successful when all is said and done. Actually, given Manning's post season stats, we should perhaps expect Cam to surpass him.




#2629420 Crabtree really is a sucka!

Posted by Marguide on 24 January 2014 - 08:00 AM

That "thug" graduated from Stanford, one of the most prestigious universities in the U.S., he is one of the top 3 performers in his profession, a profession in which you have to be elite just to join.

 

Mr. Way Truth Life, that "thug" has almost certainly accomplished more in his life than you could ever hope to in yours.

 

Let that simmer for awhile.




#2628488 Crabtree really is a sucka!

Posted by Marguide on 23 January 2014 - 11:25 AM

What does that prove?

 

Sherman has never been there.....period.  He has no class, maturity level of a high school boy and no clue how to win.  

 

I feel the exact same way about Cam Newton.  He IS a top 5 QB but he has not clue how to conduct himself on the field.  The celebrations after 1st downs are ridiculous and the TD superman deal is childish and only invites other immature opponents to mock and make fun of him.  You don't see people mocking Brady, Manning, Brees...ect.  Why?  Because they know how to win without smearing it in an opponents face.

 

It is childish.

 

Yeah, it would be so much more professional if Cam and Sherman acted like Brady did after his game losing interception against us. You did see that, didn't you?

 

Or maybe you prefer Brees running up his stats in the last game of the year 3 years ago and laughing about it on the sidelines with his coach. That was real class too I suppose.

 

So Cam doesn't act like a banker behind his desk at work. He's a football player. It's an emotional sport.

 

Perhaps it is you that has the twisted sense of what is appropriate and what is not, or perhaps you have some other problem with Cam and Richard that goes beyond how they act. Perhaps it's time for some introspection on your part.




#2628061 Cam Newton and Luke Kuechly on team Sanders

Posted by Marguide on 22 January 2014 - 09:40 PM

So, no stories yet about how many people Cam has snubbed or pissed off?

 

What are those media guys doing anyway, playing golf all day? It's time for them to put in an honest day's work. Cam needs more bullets for the chamber.




#2625942 Your reaction if we go DBs in the first couple rounds?

Posted by Marguide on 21 January 2014 - 12:25 AM

You're not gonna find a player like Dennard (who played great in zone when asked to) in the 4th round. It's the same argument we've used for a receiver.

 

Uhhhh, Sherman?




#2625803 Panthers 2014 Free Agents

Posted by Marguide on 20 January 2014 - 10:08 PM

Thanks for the correction, again. You're right, no way we go less than 5. I still think we go more like 6 or 7, even with losing the bonus in the last couple of years. Think about it, two years from now puts us in year 3 of his contract we are looking at resigning in year 4 and if not, at least making sure we are freeing up enough cap to do so in year 5. That really only gives us one good stressless cap year. Plus spreading guaranteed money across 7 years helps the cap hit as oppose to 5. Sorry I didn't elaborate on my opinion in the last post. Has there been many QBs signed for a term of 7+ years?

 

6 year contracts are pretty much the max. I don't know of any longer than that.

 

One way around equally spreading out bonus over 5 years is to put some "option" bonuses in around 4 or 5. So you amortize the original signing bonus over 5 years, keeping the cap hit low for the first few years, then in year 4 for example, have another bonus scheduled that is pretty much guaranteed. For example, you can include language in the contract making the year 4 bonus guaranteed if the player is on the roster day 1 of year 2. That is similar to what we did with Stewart. And while Stewart's contract is a disaster for us now, doing that with a franchise QB is much less risky/stupid than doing it with a RB for a variety of reasons.




#2619182 Can Jimmy Clausen read a defense?

Posted by Marguide on 16 January 2014 - 05:14 PM

Op is off base.

 

Jimmy always had three reads and an option: 1) his primary receiver, 2) out of bounds on the Carolina sideline, 3) out of bounds on the opposing team sideline, and his final option, fall down and curl up in the fetal position.




#2619171 Charles Johnson's cap figure

Posted by Marguide on 16 January 2014 - 05:04 PM

I do not necessarily believe CJ's contract is out of place. The two highest paid positions in the NFL are passers and the dudes who can get after the passer (aka DE). CJ might not register all the sacks but he puts a ton of pressure and hurries on opposing QBs. 

 

Exactly. You could throw left tackle into that mix too.

 

And if anyone wonders why pass rushers make so much money, the odds of scoring a TD during a drive in which the QB is sacked are much, much worse than drives not containing a sack.

 

CJ has earned his money. But yeah, we definitely need to do some restructuring to get his cap charge lower.
