#3296098 DraftTek's Mock for the Panthers: March 23, 2015

Posted by CarolinaSock on 23 March 2015 - 04:00 PM

With Peat, Goldman, and Peters still there, I dunno about Thompson being the pick.

#3287689 Stephen Hill

Posted by CarolinaSock on 17 March 2015 - 10:00 AM

For some perspective it was reported David Foucault was kept on the active roster so he wouldn't be snatched from our practice squad. There were no such concerns with Stephen Hill and 31 other teams decided he wasn't worth a roster spot.

#3271966 Panthers Not Set At Wide Receiver

Posted by CarolinaSock on 09 March 2015 - 05:12 PM

I'm trying to understand the fascination with Smith as a #2. He caught one more pass than Cotchery in 15 more targets with a 34 year old Steve Smith as his only real competition for looks at wide receiver.

Minnesota got a good offer from Seattle which is why they traded him. Before he got injured that year he was an MVP candidate his play was that good. In his first season with Seattle he was still injured but came back and showed off in the Super Bowl. Jets are moving away because his contract is huge.

Gave up is hardly the right word.


Seattle traded away a guy they gave up a 1st and 3rd round pick for and signed to a big contract after just one year for a throw away pick. If that's not giving up on him I don't know what is. Also 62 catches for 677 yards and 3 tds is hardly MVP numbers in nine games.

USA today article says Dr Andrews advised him not to let them physically examine it so soon after surgery.



#3244792 Rivera said countless times we so or have drafted Russell Wilson as a backup....

The whining on here would be epic if Doug Baldwin was Cam's #1 with Jermaine Kearse as the #2. Regardless of how good our defense was people would be screaming for better weapons. Whenever Wilson is discussed his defense is mentioned as a weapon for him, I don't remember the same for Cam last year when we had the #2 defense, or even this year when our defense carried us the second half of the year. It's OK to give other quarterbacks credit for what they do without having to try to diminish it every way possible to make Cam look better by comparison.

#3229546 Russell Wilson is smoke and mirrors.

Why are people acting like timing patterns are a bad thing or a crutch? Elite offenses are all about timing routes and throwing the ball where the receiver is going to be rather than where he is. One reason Cam has to throw darts into tight windows is because he often throws the ball when he sees the window rather than anticipating when the window will show up. You don't have to throw a hundred miles an hour every throw if you can anticipate. Manning has been getting it done with well below average arm strength for years now because he'll often throw the ball before the receiver is even open.

The jealousy the Cam fans have around here is just unreal. Those floaters that just happen to land in the wide receivers hands are called touch and timing, something Cam could certainly improve on. Wilson had 5 undrafted free agents at receiver tonight and a 5th round tight end, in what world is that a good supporting cast? Don't tell me one running back is what makes his supporting cast great or the defense, because our excellent defense never seems to get mentioned as part of Cam's supporting cast.

Newton on espn says Hill is expected to sign one tomorrow.


#3201333 Lack of talent around Cam is showing

Posted by CarolinaSock on 12 January 2015 - 06:25 PM

That was the same supporting cast that went 2-14 and ranked last in offense the previous year. Cam made a huge difference.


We didn't have Olsen or Shockey in 2010, and a completely different coaching staff, how is that the same cast?

#3200544 Cam's Most Important Offseason Yet

Posted by CarolinaSock on 12 January 2015 - 01:10 PM

Does anyone here actually know that Shula and Dorsey are not working with Cam on all these issues or are we just making assumptions because we want to put as little blame as possible on Cam for his weaknesses?

#3195578 Lack of talent around Cam is showing

Posted by CarolinaSock on 10 January 2015 - 11:34 PM

If people think Cam lacks talent around him have they seen what Wilson is working with? 2 undrafted free agents are his top targets, along with a 5th round tight end and a 2nd round rookie. Stewart had more yards on the ground than Lynch tonight even with Lynch's 25 yard run. When will the fault ever be on Cam?

#3189113 When Wilson holds the ball for longer than 2.6 sec (54% of the time) his QB R...

Posted by CarolinaSock on 09 January 2015 - 02:39 PM

So Wilson has a bad pass blocking Oline and below average weapons in the passing game. The updated numbers have Wilson at a 73.8 qb rating now, Cam is at 75.5 when holding the ball 2.6 or more. Cam is at 89.8 for 2.5 seconds or less. For some perspective on dropbacks, Wilson has 296 dropbacks of 2.6 or more out of 545 dropbacks, Cam has 288 out of 517. Going to add that Wilson leads the league in throwaways and it's not even close, 39 and 2nd had only 28, Cam has 10.

#3184466 Josh Norman on Punt Returns.....

Posted by CarolinaSock on 07 January 2015 - 12:06 PM

I'm more concerned with our pathetic blocking, Bersin usually has to fair catch surrounded by 3 opposing players standing beside him. I don't recall who our outside blockers are but they are terrible.

#3181063 Remember When We Played Seattle In The NFCCG In 2005

Posted by CarolinaSock on 05 January 2015 - 04:30 PM

I thought I remember Goings actually leaving that game early with a concussion, leaving us with Robertson at rb.
