#3333017 Nicks to Titans.

Posted by TheWiz on 24 April 2015 - 12:24 PM

Wow... Gettleman really doesn't give a poo about WR, lol.

I might finally try alcohol this year if we go into the season with Cotchery at #2 again.

edit: and this isn't about Nicks, it's that we have continued to stack at positions of strength and continued to ignore WR. AGAIN, Ginn isn't a guy to be counted on as A WR, he is a returner.

 

I wouldn't say that. We drafted KB last year, and brought back Ted Ginn and Jarrett Boykin to compete. But I think it is safe to say that DG will not overpay for a receiver with lackluster productivity.

 

DG is already familiar with Hakeem and for whatever reason, he chose not to bring him back here. Gotta trust that, not just from a talent evaluation... but from a professional history perspective.

we have the most superstitious, pessimistic, paranoid fan base ever...

 

 




#3324462 Philly Brown 200 pounds?

Posted by TheWiz on 17 April 2015 - 08:16 AM

I'm not a rocket scientist or anything, but 4.3 and 4.5 isn't that much of a difference. Both times are pretty fast.

 

4.3 and 4.5 are .2 seconds apart

 

1 and 3 don't seem that far apart either... until you contextualize it by saying "draft round"




#3324448 Seahawks GM hints he'll just let Wilson walk if he doesn't lower his...

Posted by TheWiz on 17 April 2015 - 07:46 AM

Russell Wilson's career stats in 3 years

 

Career passer rating 98.6

Career completion % - 63.4

Season passing avg- 3316

2 Superbowl appearances in 3 years.

 

Its ok to be a hater....

I can even deal with a troll...

 

But some of these statements are just flat out idiot. Its one thing to think you shouldn't pay a quarterback a particular amount, but to say he's mediocre... is baseless.

 




#3323540 The Case for Agholor using Gettlelogic

Posted by TheWiz on 16 April 2015 - 01:53 PM

OBJ isn't really a good comparison IMO. Not as sudden or quick as Beck. OBJ created separation fairly naturally in the way he got in and out of breaks. There was no rounding off anything. He puts his foot in the ground and goes. Whether on a deep post, comeback, or an in. Beckham also has a set of ridiculous hands on him. He's just an athletic freak.

Not saying anything negative about Agholor, but OBJ is special.


I totally agree. Im not speaking so much about Agholor being like OBJ, Im just highlighting DG's scout of him. If Gettleman's high on him, we will pull the trigger.


#3323402 The Case for Agholor using Gettlelogic

Posted by TheWiz on 16 April 2015 - 12:00 PM

I was gonna let it play out cause I'm bored, but I couldn't go through with it. Lol

Seriously though, why Alghor over Dorsett?


Phillip Dorsett is a speedy guy, but Im not sold on him as an NFL caliber receiver. His speed makes him a 2nd round projection but it wont make him any bigger. If we were just looking for somebody fast, I'd much rather have Breshard Perriman. Size + speed + questionable route running is better than speed + no size + questionable route running + less reliable hands.

I know that people think of Steve Smith as a small guy... but Steve Smith was not small. He was just short. Steve Smith was stout with a powerful lower body, quick and explosive. Smitty's leg strength allowed him to make some explosive leaps and he powered through alot of arm tackles. He had had strong quick hands and would literally fight anybody on the field. Steve Smith was just a special guy.

Im getting emotional just thinking about it.


#3323359 The Case for Agholor using Gettlelogic

Sorry to burst your little bubble, but Smitty was a 6th round reciever and he's the GOAT at WR for us.





#3323333 The Case for Agholor using Gettlelogic

Posted by TheWiz on 16 April 2015 - 11:21 AM

Another Agholor thread??? Check it....
 
Last year... after we drafted Kelvin Benjamin, Gettleman was asked about Kelvin Benjamin's route running challenges. DG schooled reporters by saying that Odell Beckham was the best wide receiver in the draft last year. He pointed out how he stood out from all the other receivers because he could run the entire route tree. (If he had fell to us, we would have drafted him.)
 
KB was great for us last year... but if Agholor is there, we will take him.
 
If Agholor is there at 25, here are the reasons we will select him
 
1.) Reliable hands. 104 out of 134 targets. Ben Fennell counted only 5 drops on catchable/unobstructed passes all year (via Twitter)
 
2.). Speed. Sometimes speed is overrated. There are plenty of fast guys who just aren't good receivers. But 4.4 Speed, reliable hands, and great route running = leading the pac w/ 12 TD's.
 
3.) "twofer" We spent much of the offseason bolstering our Special Teams. It turns out that the reason we lost to Seattle in the playoffs was not because of OLine depth... but getting beat deep... and poor field positioning. Bersin was just THAT bad. Nelson could immediately step in as a number two and compete with Ted Ginn for special teams option. Boykin and Ginn can be contributors, but neither demand the respect of a true #2 receiver.
 
(*edited here)
 
Huddle Detractors vs Wizlogic
 
1.)  Under Sized: At 6'0" A lot of huddlers think we need a big body "possession type" receiver reminiscent of Moose as a number 2. But we actually already have this in KB and Olsen. Just so happens that this type of receiver is currently our #1. We once had a little guy under 6'0" as a receiver and he just so happened to be the greatest WR in  Panther history.
 
2.) We need a tackle. You're right... But I think that DG showed last year that he wont reach for a tackle just because we need them. Im sure we'll address the tackle position in the draft, but if a certain type of player falls to us IE: Gurley... tackle be damned, until the next round. I'm predicting that Nelson is that kind of player.
 
3.) USC. (sigh) There really is an interesting trend going out there when you look at schools we have drafted from. We have really seen some successful players that we drafted from some schools... ex: Utah. But I think that we've put entirely too much stock into this superstition. Nobody ever seems to say that we shouldn't draft linebackers from Washington (Jerry Jensen/ Lester Towns), or Running backs from Syracuse (Fiammetta/ Kyle Johnson), or Lineman from Auburn (Jeno James/ Lee Ziemba).
 
In the history of the Carolina Panthers, we have drafted 17 receivers.... of that number, we have 2 pro-bowlers (Smitty 3rd round selection and Moose 2nd round selection) KB can be considered a 3rd in the future. What hurts the most about the USC receivers is that they were drafted in the 2nd round. Which brings me to another point... We have never received any significant contribution from ANY receiver that we have drafted outside of the 3rd round. Never. That says a lot. That says to me that if we're really trying to draft a receiver who will produce, he needs to be drafted no later than the 3rd round.
 
So while I understand the superstition, those guys were drafted at least 8 years ago. Gettleman wasn't our GM and Proehl wasn't our WR coach. Dave Gettleman was spot on with Odell Beckham last year, just like he has been with most talent evaluation. He does his homework on his guys... and Nelson is getting a lot of Beckham comparisons. 
 
Having said all that...
 
He wont be there. (listen to the podcast)


#3323173 Top 7 teams with most riding on the draft

Posted by TheWiz on 16 April 2015 - 08:16 AM

So basically they're saying.... in order for these teams to win, they need to stop Cam.

 

Which tells me.... in order for us to win, we need to protect Cam.

 

I just blew your mind.




#3322300 Will Mariota have rookie success like Cam

Posted by TheWiz on 15 April 2015 - 09:48 AM

I think people forget that what make's Cam special is not just his ability to get out of the pocket. Cam's combination of speed, size, and strength made him a TERROR his first couple of years. He can elude the pass rush and then run your DB over.

 

Great threat at the goal line QB ever. Now if we can just get Shula to stop the dumb play calling...
