The Panthers have literally not signed a big-time free agent since 1998

12 March 2015 - 06:21 PM

That's not necessarily a bad thing, it just is what it is. We haven't signed what we thought was an elite player in free agency since Sean Gilbert in 1998. We haven't had a Colts 2015 offseason since 1996 when we signed Eric Davis and Kevin Greene, both of which were coming off Pro Bowl years.


If you decide to become a fan of the Carolina Panthers, this is what you sign up for and should know going in. We'll have a quiet free agency period this year, next year, and the year after that. Why that has kept happening through different GMs, I can only speculate. But don't act like our big free agent signing being some dude named Teddy Williams is something that's only happened this year and has only happened with Gettleman.

Derrick Morgan hints at meeting with the Panthers

At least I think so. Just like Ted Ginn posted a hint, so did Derrick Morgan from his Snapchat:




Would be interesting since the Titans play a 3-4 I believe.

Jerry Richardson sure is consistent in getting rid of troublemaking players immediately...

That's why when Steve Smith ended up in jail in 2002 after ending fellow receiver Anthony Bright's career by breaking his nose and eye socket, he definitely wasn't signed to a 6 year $27 million extension after the 2003 season. 


That's why when Steve Smith was suspended by the Panthers for 2 games for seriously injuring Ken Lucas during practice in 2008, he definitely wasn't signed to a 3 year extension in 2012.




Steve Smith was a cancer hated by everyone in the organization except Jerry Richardson for some unknown reason and he managed to stay on this team for 13 seasons despite assaulting fellow teammates MULTIPLE times in front of dozens of witnesses both times. He essentially ended both guys' careers. He stayed in part due to elite talent.


But yet Greg Hardy, who was also charged with a misdemeanor assault charge (with no eyewitnesses mind you), is getting booted out the door? Despite how godly he has played in recent seasons? Despite still being young, despite playing a much more important position than wide receiver?


Can someone please help me make sense of this? Smith had his misdemeanor assault charge dropped too, but only after he entered a deferred-prosecution program. Greg Hardy won't have to do a thing and charges have been immediately dropped period. What the hell?

Here's a breakdown of every county in North and South Carolina's favorite NFL team

This is actually a little WTF. Source: Vox.com using information compiled from Facebook. If you're looking for a college basketball team to root for, Orange County (UNC) is pro-Panthers, while Durham (Duke) and Wake (NC State) are pro-Steelers. I'm a little stunned at the amount of Steelers fans in eastern NC; wasn't this supposed to be Redskins country pre-Panthers? There's only 1 county out of 100 in North Carolina with more Redskins fans than Panthers and none in South Carolina.


Thoughts? This list goes roughly in order across NC from west to east.
