In Topic: Oh, What a difference a year makes..

29 July 2014 - 09:05 PM

I don't want to hear anything about our great turnaround until it yields results on the court. You can win as many offseason championships as you want, but we've got to put W's in the column before we start to get too high on ourselves. We have to keep perspective. This is still a very young team and we need it to grow together and not fall in love with columnists saying they're going to be one of the best teams in the East this year. Hard work.


In Topic: Pats claim RB Tyler Gaffney off waivers

So you're telling me you'd be mad at Gettleman for doing something routine thatall GMs do with injured players.

 

Okay.

 

Would it have been done with Kelvin Benjamin had he torn a ligament in his knee?


In Topic: Pats claim RB Tyler Gaffney off waivers

Alright morons who are defending this here is the short version:

 

- We wasted a 6th round pick. It vanished into thin air. We have nothing at all to show for it.

 

- We lost a player. Regardless of potential, he was a guy we thought highly enough of to draft. No matter what happens in his career from here forward, he's an asset. If you look at this like "LOL he's just some scrub RB!!!", then you're the dumb one.

 

- We lost our $100,000 investment into this player as we've already paid his signing bonus. The Patriots get a free 6th round pick and $100,000 just for putting a waiver claim on a player we had ZERO incentive to waive at this point in time. We made the move far too early. This was a rookie GM mistake. And for a guy that is so highly regarded as a numbers guru it's remarkable that he made this mistake.

 

 

tl;dr for the knuckle draggers, if you like Gettleman or not this is inexcusable asset management. Go ask JR how he feels about losing $100,000 and a 6th round pick because Gettleman shuffled paperwork wrong. That's real money. That's a real draft pick.


In Topic: On the Jonathan Stewart cap hit talk....

Breaking: News that's not actually news. Stewart might not be a Panther next season. There again, he might. You heard it here.


In Topic: Kug to have back surgery Aug 8th, done for year

24 July 2014 - 02:00 PM

How many of the people here writing off this young man for problems beyond his control also wrote off Thomas Davis for the same thing is my question. But no, let's not talk about how many haters THAT man had for sucking up all our precious cap space and not being on the field. Give it up, Thomas. You're done.

 

But seriously, best wishes to the young man. There's no indication that his injuries have come from a lack of effort. Don't judge a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. I'm sure he's more disappointed about this situation than any of us could even imagine but we've still got people here acting like he stole their lunch money.

 

Even if he never steps on the field, this dude was/is a Panthers player and I support him. I hope he can come back and prove some people wrong. And I hope I am still around if he turns it around and is able to get out there and be a productive player for us so the mysterious group of guys that can say "I never gave up on ya Kugzilla!" can appear from the ashes of this conversation like they have for TD.

 

Ya'll are some sunshine fans.
