#1806799 JR a tight wad?

Posted by Marguide on 20 June 2012 - 03:26 PM

Unless you are JR and taking the money out of your own pocket, this list has little meaning.

These guys are on the list because they signed in 2011 and they are including their entire signing bonus in the calculations. None of them will be on the list in 2012.

#1802586 Steve Smith to Josh Norman: "This Isn't Coastal Carolina"

Posted by Marguide on 15 June 2012 - 04:24 PM

As others have said, if Norman didn't have game, Smitty wouldn't have bothered commenting. Be smart Josh, don't tease the mean dog, but don't be intimidated either.

#1802344 Catman's mini-camp practice observations...

Posted by Marguide on 15 June 2012 - 12:08 PM

Very nice pics Catman. The official site should fire their photographer and just let you and Alverez provide the shots. Really nice stuff.

Alverez, I have to say, those are far better pictures than those on the official site.

My compliments on a job very, very well done. Thanks for sharing them.

#1797281 Cap Room Update....We're $8+ million under the cap

Posted by Marguide on 09 June 2012 - 10:49 PM

You can play football and make/have babies at the same time. Ask Janoris Jenkins.

#1796822 Panthers website selling Cam autographs.

How do you think they are going to pay for that $20 million plus contract in a couple of years?

Up next...certified locks of Cam Newton hair. That's why he was growing it out.

#1795062 Anyone else besides Smitty get 1000 Yards Receiving This year?

Posted by Marguide on 07 June 2012 - 12:46 PM

I'm a lot more interested in who our go-to red zone target will be. LaFell, Gettis and Olsen all are guys that have the right physical characteristics, but all have something to prove in that regard.

#1795054 Special Teams Will be Better in 2012

Posted by Marguide on 07 June 2012 - 12:39 PM

I still think we should bite the bullet and cut Mare this year. Even with the bonus accelerating, we would save about $600,000 on this year's cap. Yes, we would still be on the hook for another $1.5 million in bonus for next year, but considering he is due to make well over $2,000,000 in 2013, that doesn't look so bad.

It just doesn't seem to make sense to be on the hook for over $3,000,000 each year for the next 3 years for a kicker. Our offense is not the John Fox offense. We are a high scoring team that relies much less on field goals than past squads. Even if a cheaper kicker performs slightly worse than Mare (and that is highly debatable), that money could be better spent elsewhere.

A premier placekicker is a luxury that this offense can do without in my opinion, especially with the new kickoff placement.

#1790750 Headline Tag: J-Stew Wants to Remain a Panther

Posted by Marguide on 02 June 2012 - 02:59 PM

  • Newton will get his long-term contract with the Panthers when the time comes
  • Neither Newton, nor Stewart, nor any other player is going to give a significant "home town discount". This is an overused phrase that does not reflect the reality of the business
  • MH has a plan. It may not be the plan everyone agrees with, but don't think he hasn't thought through all these scenarios
  • Otah's cap hit, whether we keep him or cut him, will have little impact on the team
  • DWill's and CJ's contracts were not front-loaded. Just because we paid a lot of cash up front, that does not make it front-loaded. The bonus is still spread out over the life of the contract. A front-loaded contract is characterized by high salaries in the early years, and lower salaries toward the end. Paying a big bonus up front affects cash flow for the owner, nothing more.

#1782625 Does Everyone Really Believe We Are Good At Dt?

Posted by Marguide on 24 May 2012 - 04:24 PM

No, I am not overly confident in our DT's, but I also realize that you cannot fix everything in today's NFL. Every team has their weaknesses, and we are no different.

I do trust Ron to put the best product on the field given the salary cap and roster size constraints. He may be wrong in his evaluation of specific players, but he also needs to be given the latitude to be wrong occasionally.

As long as the overall product continues to improve, we should be satisfied with his stewardship.

#1778537 Sports Blog By Panther Fan...

Posted by Marguide on 20 May 2012 - 02:43 PM

This is PFFL's blog. For anyone new, he was the scourge of this board last year. After his 30th alt was banned, he went to the Broncos' board to try to sell the idea that The Golden Calf of Bristol was a much better QB than Cam.

I think most of us here came to the conclusion that the guy has some "issues".

#1771927 Amini Silatolu A Carolina Panther

Posted by Marguide on 13 May 2012 - 09:24 PM

The sky is not falling but in this league you need to learn quickly.

Yes, he needs to learn but there is plenty of time for that. You don't have to be especially smart to play G. As long as he can learn his assignments, he'll be okay.

Better a guy who knows his weaknesses than someone like Coples who thought he had the Jet's playbook down pat after 1 day of work.

#1767289 Offensive Line Projections

Posted by Marguide on 08 May 2012 - 01:09 PM

ya, he owes us now. I dont give fug what kind of season he has, he needs to be givin up a bigtime home team discount next season if we decide that he can hold up.

On the off-chance that Otah plays well all year, I hope we are smart enough not to give him a big money deal.

On the bright side, it's going to be fun watching Amini.

#1759378 Fool Proof Solution To Solve Our Dt Problem..

Posted by Marguide on 30 April 2012 - 10:52 PM

I would go into camp with Neblett and Edwards as the penciled in starters. Kearse can spell Edwards, with occasional snaps for Fua (let him earn more snaps, don't just give them to him). McClain spells Neblett. On passing downs, we can also use 1 of the DE's at the 3 tech spot.

Carefully monitor who gets cut post June 1st. If a good (but not terribly expensive) 3 tech DT is out there, perhaps bring them in. This all depends on how McClain looks in OTA's. If it looks like he has made a lot of progress, we may not need to sign anyone pending seeing what kind of injuries we have through camp.

Do not go into the season like last year, with Fua and McClain starting, unless they both have shown a quantum leap.

#1758978 Is Everette Brown Officially a Bust?

Posted by Marguide on 30 April 2012 - 04:54 PM

He is a bust. He and Jimmy Clausen and Armanti Edwards have nothing to offer to the team and are dead weight. Give some new guys opportunities. We might luck up and find a stud.

Uh...he's been gone since training camp last year. Welcome to 2012.
