As somebody said here before, there's a reason why G is the GM and we're not.


I think being an actual GM allows you to forgo signing someone just because they have name recognition. Ironically we tend to explain points to morons what they deem unnecessary to defend.

I am somewhat disappointed in the OP's content.

To be honest, I had hoped this thread was about one of Sen. Helm's hot granddaughters named Jade coming out as a flaming liberal.


I has thinking she was a porn star but we are on the same wavelength. Sick bastards we (maybe just me) are.

I got a hemorrhoid flaring up and an ingrown toenail. Someone else is gonna have to figure this one out.

In Topic: Panthers claim OT Jonathan Martin

I don't know about this, but I do see your opinion.

My thought is, an OL is made up of 5 guys that build chemistry, and are strong as a sum of their parts.

Oher, Remmers & Martin might not be All-Pro tackles or anything more than average tackles, but when they bookend Norwell-Kalil-Turner, the whole unit balances out their deficiencies.

I think 1 of these 3 tackles will emerge as an above average tackle this year. That gives you 4 out of 5 OL that are dependable. Norwell, Kalil, Turner and Remmers have 1/2 a season to build off of, and if they can stay healthy, I think this OL is instantly better than the crap we saw for most of last season in the trenches.

I might be a homer here, but I will wait to judge Oher before seeing him healthy and reunited with Matzko. I will also hold judgment on Martin until I see him with this team. We're getting Martin in late March, which gives him all offseason to get acclimated to the core of that line.

It wouldn't surprise me if both flop here, but knowing how changes of scenery and being fully removed from injuries can have positive affects, I'm willing to give them both the benefit of the doubt.

Regardless, I think if we roll out Oher-Norwell-Kalil-Turner-Remmers or Oher-Norwell-Kalil-Turner-Martin, it will be stronger, better and safer for Cam & the running game, than it was in 2014.

Considering the $1M pricetag for a former 2nd round pick that is only 25 years old, I'm good with it. Worst case it's depth if that horrible injury bug bites us again. Martin can step in and at least provide a band-aid.

Just my 2 pennies.


This is a pretty good analysis. I actually like both signings and don't think either will totally "flop" Martin will be a bit more under the radar here. That coupled with the bullying is old news and we have a strong group of mature plYers in the locker room could help get his head on straight which I believe is his biggest hold back from being a solid rotational guy.

Oher has more risk I think. I think we just need him to be a solid stop gap.

In Topic: Panthers talk to Greg Jennings

Disclaimer:  I am not a State fan.

 

In fairness to Cotchery, the timing was off last year (New WR corps, QB injury) until the end, when he became more of a factor.

 

 

I am a State fan/graduate.  Cotchery was pedestrian last year.  He's had a farily good career but at this point he is a low rent version of Jennings and not really a viable starter. I would like to somehow see him on the roster if we dont sign a Vet because I think his presence helps the younger receivers and can situationally be a factor in making plays but he is/was a stop gap due to financial limitations.
