#2957811 Some Love For DG

Posted by Soul Rebel on 16 September 2014 - 12:21 PM

Never linked the two, but it makes sense. Manning and Cruz have declined sharply and the running game has been horrible for the NYG. Maybe not restocking the toolshed could be the reason.

According to the article, we were $15M in the hole when DG arrived....crazy to think what he's done.

In the article it also mentions a formula that reminds me of a moneyball kind of approach. As long as the front 7 and Cam Newton are in place, the parts around these areas can be interchanged on the cheap.

Agree totally.... Carolina wasn't built in a night, but DG has done wonders with what was given to him.  He has shown an eye for drafting talent too, which is huge for us.  Just truly shows how horrible Hurney was here.

#2957086 Jason Avant on his Touchdown

I love the combo of Avant/Cotchery to compliment the youth of KB13/Bersin/King.  Cam will love the vets more and more as the season goes on.

I personally like what Gettleman has done in Carolina thus far.  The Gaffney/Barner/Kugbila drafting aside, Avant & Cotchery look like good acquisitions.  No GM is perfect, but his record looks like DG is doing much more positive things here, than bad. It's been awhile since we've gotten a good Gettleman quote.

#2897816 Could you imagine if Cam had done this?

Don't understand the meaning of this thread..... Manziel's middle finger is all I've heard about in sports so far today.  Seems like Manziel is getting as much as Cam would get.  Maybe I'm missing the intent of this post.

Interesting brand choice...... Drakkar Noir was the first one that I ever owned in like 9th or 10th grade.  Look at Drakkar back on the scene.  Really thought it was going to be this -

Beautiful vid!  Loved every bit of it and the Hixon catch still gives me goosebumps.  Such a great year for us!!

#2779870 Offensive tackle - Great minds think alike?

Posted by Soul Rebel on 10 May 2014 - 09:53 PM

then what is the plan?


Worst case is Chandler starting out there as I don't think they attempt to put Bell out there.  We will probably scan the waiver wire after OTAs and bring in a vet that gets cut.  I know Roos has been brought up on here as a year or two band-aid, which is perfect.  Our interior is set and pretty solid, so it's just a matter of getting our two bookends.  I have no doubt that someone will shake free from one of the other 31 rosters that can play LT at least for 2014.

the browns are putting together a good draft

I hear ya. For me, I'm not a fan. Don't like Gilbert and not a JFF fan. The Flash Gordon situation is also alarming, yet no WR yet. Thats just me though.

Herron or Abbrederris will compliment KB13 nicely.

Great find Ivan..... and damn you at the same time for getting some dust or something in my eye.  Haha.  High character....driven....and an emotional goal in front of him to succeed.

#2762567 Panthers making last minute trip to see Allen Robinson.

Posted by Soul Rebel on 05 May 2014 - 08:29 PM

To be honest, I don't see how Robinson doesn't impress you.  I can see how you might like other guys more as a personal preference, but looking at him in a vacuum, Robinson is quite impressive, IMO.  He has great size, good speed, is quick and very shifty -- especially for such a big guy, he has great vision once he gets the ball in his hands (which contributes to his exceptional RAC), he has great hands, has an amazing vertical and high points the ball with the best of them, he also has very good body control and adjust to the ball.


To be honest, I don't see a major flaw in his game.  He has everything you look for in a WR, and his RAC is elite.  He is also reportedly a good kid who would have stayed at PSU if O' Brien had stayed.  I really don't understand why he isn't talked about more...especially when the biggest flaw that is mentioned is long speed, which isn't bad.  I just think he isn't very flashy, and that's what the analysts like to talk about. 


^^ This!!  Well said, sir.



I too think he could be the man at 28 if Latimer and the OT they want is off the board.  I really think the Panthers desire was for Cody Latimer and as they fell in love with his tape, others above them did as well.  Feeling that Latimer, who they want, won't be there, they take a guy with similar traits that can be a WR1.
