#2707046 Lafell disses Cam?

Posted by TylerVagyler on 19 March 2014 - 04:28 PM

Or...can we just ban the OP for making a thread that asked if LaFell's quote was a diss when it obviously wasn't and then added a fake sentence to make it seem like a diss and then later saying he just made it up?

 

I mean, really? Just a terrible thread.

can we just delete this since so many people just read the quote with the fake sentence in it and immediately freak out?




#2705915 King and McNutt wont be punchlines for long.

I think King will end up being more productive than McNutt.




#2701475 Should we trade up to grab a high rank WR?

Posted by TylerVagyler on 16 March 2014 - 08:20 PM

I hate that people are turned off to the idea of drafting Cooks because he is compared to Smith. 

 

We aren't interested in him because we want a Steve Smith clone. It's not "our focus". We are interested in him because he's a damn good receiver who may be available at our pick. On film, on the stat sheet and based on combine results he is a top 5 WR in this loaded draft class. 

 

But to answer your question, no. We don't need to trade up. This draft is deep. 




#2701436 Could Gettleman be waiting until next year to fill the WR void?

Posted by TylerVagyler on 16 March 2014 - 08:06 PM

Sure he is.  He has said repeatedly that he is looking at a few years down the road with each move.  That is why for example many of the players are gone.  He isn't just looking at the short term.
 

 

What I mean is, yes....he's looking down the road with every move. But I don't think he's saying "let's not sign this WR...the WRs next year are better". I think he's just being smart so we are in good shape in the future and in a position to sign big name players whether that's a WR, CB, OL or any other position. 




#2701276 Just a little perspective

Posted by TylerVagyler on 16 March 2014 - 06:29 PM

what?




#2700951 There is no master plan and that's a good thing.

Posted by TylerVagyler on 16 March 2014 - 03:21 PM

He is doing the same thing he did last offseason but everything is being blown out of proportion because we went 12-4 last season. Expectations are too high when, in reality, they shouldn't be. Ginn, LaFell, Captain, Mitchell, Mikell etc were never thought of as long-term options. Gettleman's goal is to get the team out of cap hell while keeping the team competitive, not signing mediocre players to long-term deals.

Jones and Cotchery would be ok

#2698932 Players you are really high on

Posted by TylerVagyler on 15 March 2014 - 06:41 PM

Deone Bucannon, S, Washington State

 

Here is a good article on him (Eagles blogger).

 

Tidbits from the write-up:

 

 

 

Deone Bucannon fits these trends, running an official 4.49 40-yard dash, tied for third best amongst safeties and faster than Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Calvin Pryor and Dion Bailey. Bucannon racked up 19 reps on the bench press (third best), a 36.5-inch vertical jump (third best), 125 inches on the broad jump (second best), 6.96 seconds on the three cone (third). And he did all this as the fifth tallest safety, fourth heaviest safety and had the second longest arms of all safeties. He’s clearly a very athletic player, especially for a player of his size. Physically, Deone Bucannon profiles very similarly to San Francisco 49ers rookie Pro Bowl safety, Eric Reid.

#2697618 So, lets see what Smith has to say (via David Newton)

Posted by TylerVagyler on 15 March 2014 - 10:23 AM

Releasing Steve Smith had nothing to do with either of those

 

The entire franchise would be in a different situation if it wasn't for those deals. 




#2697593 So, lets see what Smith has to say (via David Newton)

Posted by TylerVagyler on 15 March 2014 - 10:10 AM

I'm convinced that we will look at this move years from now as the biggest mistake in Carolina Panther history.

 

It won't top Delhomme's contract and the 2010 spending spree.

 

With out those things we wouldn't even be in this situation.

You mean he's upset he got released????

 

SHOCKER!!!




#2694144 Hurney Legacy Good or Bad

Posted by TylerVagyler on 14 March 2014 - 08:30 AM

2009:

Everette Brown (gave up a first round pick for this guy)

Sherrod Martin

Corvey Irvin

Mike Goodson

Tony Fiametta

Duke Robinson

Captain Munnerlyn

 

- Outside of Captain, all are trash.

 

2010:

Jimmy Clausen

Branden LaFell

Armanti Edwards (gave up a 2nd rounder to get)

Eric Norwood

Greg Hardy

David Gettis

Tony Pike

RJ Stanford

Robert McClain

 

- Absolutely terrible draft outside of Hardy

 

2011:

Cam Newton

Terrell McClain

Sione Fua

Brandon Hogan

Kealoha Pilares

Lawarence Wilson

Zach Williams

Lee Ziemba

 

- Cam was a great pick. Everyone else sucked.

 

These 3 drafts along with his spending spree hurt this franchise badly. To say Hurney was a good draft evaluator is a joke. Despite his F- performance in the post-lockout offseason, Hurney was known as a cap guy for good reason. Before those big deals were dished out he usually had the team in a good situation cap-wise. Sure he gave out a few bad contracts (every GM does) like the Delhomme deal but overall he did a good job. He should've been let go when Fox left. Seeing Fox leave, I think he felt the pressure from JR and went "all in" with the core we had. Unfortunately, that core wasn't good enough. At least not for the money they got.
