#3311950 Linebacker in the first?

Posted by catnip on 04 April 2015 - 01:56 PM

Most thought that Kueckly was a bad pick when we still had Beason.  Gettleman knows his stuff.  He will look ahead a couple years and decide what we need ready to start by then and who will be gone.  Maybe Kalil, Johnson, Stewart, TD and someone else may retire or move on.  The trick is to be ready.  The Pats know this and always are in the hunt.  Gettleman knows this and will have us ready.

#3283708 Is Brenton Bersin really that bad?

Posted by catnip on 14 March 2015 - 07:56 AM

Bersin will compete in training camp.  Likeable guy but he knows he has work to do or  will be cut.  Gettleman  will improve this team each year as he works his magic.   He is cheap and others will have to beat him for him to be cut.

#3266540 Panthers Sign Michael Oher

Posted by catnip on 06 March 2015 - 04:58 PM

Several of the G-man FA picks were washed up until they joined the Panthers.  They had a good season and left for more money (Ginn, Mitchel)

Oher is reunited with his old line coach which should help him improve his game.   He knows this is his last chance to stay in the league so he has to do his best.   He has to beat out players still on the team and any draft pick we make.  Let the best players compete and make the team.  Gman is setting us up for BPA in the draft.

#3254961 Michael Oher Visits Panthers

Oher has played both RT and LT.  Matsco has a history with him and I trust Gettleman's judgement.  We will definitly draft an OT in the 1st or 2nd round.

Oher played injured last year and is looking for a chance to regain his worth.  He is a hogmollie and we need depth.  With him signed it will take some pressure off for reaching in the draft.  Things are looking up !

#3251109 DeAngelo released...

Posted by catnip on 23 February 2015 - 04:15 PM

With Getttleman it is all business.   If you are paid top dollar, then you have to play like a top dollar player.  It doesn;t matter if you are well liked or  what you did in the past.  Dwill has not played 16 games for several years, but was paid to be the #1 rb.  Stewart should take note and be ready to play a full season next year or be let go also.    Gettleman will look at every player on the team and make decisions based upon production .  Hurney overpaid players and will take a while for Gettleman to get everything balanced based upon the facts.  Look for Johnson to rework his contract or be on the list of overpaid Hurney players and be let go when possible.  We have to pay Cam and Kuechly and they are the future of our team.

#3177468 Someone Finally "Gets" Cam Newton

Posted by catnip on 04 January 2015 - 01:39 PM

Sure Cam makes mistakes, but he has a big heart and desire to win.  Yesterday he gave up himself when he ran for  firstdowns  when we most needed  them.

Cam will find a way to win and has taken this team on his shoulders. He is just starting to mature and be a leader.

#3150971 Philly Brown Development

You can tell the coaches notice his improvement by not doing punt or kickoff returns and letting him get more involved in the passing game. It also shows their trust in Bersin. Fox never allowed young players to play through their mistakes.
Rivera has allowed them to compete and improve.

#3106587 Will the steelers beat the saints?

Posted by catnip on 27 November 2014 - 09:32 AM

I could see all of our NFC South teams losing.  We lose out  to the Saints and Falcons ending up in (turd) place.  We get a 10-12 draft position

and MoRon and company continue to build up our hope only to fail and point to the players  not performing.   We need a coach with a backbone taking responsibility and making the tough calls.

#3062182 Doubt inside BofA Cam is the future?

Posted by catnip on 01 November 2014 - 11:20 AM

I am not bashing Cam or am I a coach., but Cam is no longer a rookie and is still throwing the ball too high for his targets.  this should have been corrected by now.  If we want to see if he is the problem, then start Anderson and see what happens.  everyone on the team is accountable including Cam.  I support him, but its time to play better. Brees overcame two turnovers and put the ball where the receiver could make a play.  I know our O-line is bad, but he should get rid of the ball quicker and not take sacks.  Shula takes part of the blame also.

#3019381 I know management don't pay me for this, but...

Posted by catnip on 13 October 2014 - 04:35 PM

it became obvious that the Bengals were targeting Godfrey on third down plays knowing he would play soft or be out of position. In camp he was very slow and has not improved . Bene and Norman are quicker and cam react faster to the play.

#2972339 Why we lost...

Posted by catnip on 22 September 2014 - 08:33 AM

I didn't stay up to see the entire game. I taped it and will see the rest today.  What I did see was Bell getting beat all game resulting in two holding penalties and one sack fumble .  No way we can win this way.  The rest of the 0-line didn't do  much better.  We have to upgrade our line or Cam doesn't finish the season.

A good GM makes the tough calls.  Letting our complete WR core leave and forcing Smitty out brought out poo poo fans.  What has resulted is a better WR core and Cam being the leader without confusion on the team.  Benjamin is being allowed to make mistakes and mature as a rookie showing his potential talent.  We have a group willing to help each other and become a great team.  We have a group of young guns with talent to keep us relevant for many years.

#2936232 QB Trade Speculation (Tin Foil Hats Needed)

Posted by catnip on 08 September 2014 - 07:39 AM

We have a backup QB who is 35 , but was the player of the game.  We have a third QB in the wings to take his spot when he hangs it up.  Anderson is a class act and a team player. I think it would be a mistake to let him go.

#2897262 King?

Posted by catnip on 18 August 2014 - 05:27 PM

King and Lucas looked good in camp.  Bersin had a great catch againt the Chiefs and looked solid on special teams.  Brown is still a question mark , but should servive the first round of cuts. Mcnutt, Underwood, and Pilares are cut.

#2834199 Vonleh Is A Wasted Pick!

Posted by catnip on 28 June 2014 - 11:39 AM

Vonleh was projected as high as #4 in the draft. One expert listed him as the best power forward in the draft.  While watching the draft and looking on the internet, they had Vonley as the highest rated player when we picked.  The Hornets may have gotten a gift just like the Panthers with Star.
