#3289521 Hartsock: Hardy unmanageable at times

if Hardy's futon could only talk...

#3249275 Cam Newton should be paid more than Luck or Wilson

Posted by AviationMX on 22 February 2015 - 08:26 AM

I don't think he get a Luck deal nor a Kaep one either, Newton has plenty of upside but still has issues ( as a young QB) running through his progressions or just misses the the open receiver. It will depend on the where the guaranteed money falls, Kaep has $60M over 5 years guaranteed but also has to meet a bunch of requirements to get more..


A Flacco model is probably more like it, an increasing base over 6 years to ensure that they improve with a $3/4M signing bonus and extras for making playoff/ all pro.


Regardless of the poor O line/ WR core, it's my opinion that the Panthers want to see better decisions on the field and an improvement from the 16th place QBR Newton had tlast year before he gets to a substantial base salary increases. 


Predict a 6 year deal @ $60M base/$20M in signing bonuses and Misc bonuses for performance...but may include a de-escalators for health//QBR/other. The base salary will be under $4M for the first three years with a signing bonus of around $4M a year ....

Since Hardy was using his Huddler app in court today....

#3229548 4 Things Greg Hardy Must Do to Remain a Panther

Posted by AviationMX on 03 February 2015 - 10:37 AM

I missed him but also am pissed that he put the team in jeopardy, especially in light of TD's speech- which may have an effect on Hardy now (just maybe)


if he takes a reduction in $$ to right his wrong and gets it...welcome back. If he takes the money and splits- then he was what we thought he was and screw him and better have his head on swivel if we ever see him again. 


He has had time to reflect on our dime...so we will see.

Great panther and a leader for all the NFL, makes me proud to be a Panther's fan.


I did notice that TD breezed by Ray Lewis on the way to speak- I'm still not sure why Lewis is on TV with the support of the NFL...

#3224036 Rivera up for Coach of the Year Again

Posted by AviationMX on 30 January 2015 - 10:08 AM

No surprise, he did another great job with a cash strapped team...he never lost the locker room and kept his head when things looked real bad. He still makes some mistakes here and there but he's a solid leader.


it will be a surprise to the Huddlers that wanted to fire him and still do.

#3201193 What does Gettleman do about Cam

Posted by AviationMX on 12 January 2015 - 05:32 PM

Gettlemen will not pay Cam a ton of cash because losing teams would. 


Funny when people get all emotional about this--I assure you, Gettlemen won't.  Cam will get a fair deal.  He has not played well enough to dictate what the amount will be and hold DG in checkmate.  Gettlemen has options, and will consider all of them.  That is why he did not give Hardy a big deal (and drafted Ealy) and sent Smitty packing.  Call it dumb if you want, but you are not trying to get this team out of Cap Hell.  He will offer Cam a fair deal, guaranteed money based on his performance and incentives (unguaranteed) based on his potential upside. 


Nothing that Gettlemen has done leads me to believe that Cam is in control of the situation.  We are in the same situation the Niners were in with Kaepernick, the Bengals with Dalton, and the Ravens with Flacco.  Flacco got a big deal in terms of guaranteed money, but the other 2 were incentive-laden deals.  Since Flacco has been money in the playoffs, has a ring, and is a top 10 (statistically) rated QB, he got guaranteed $$.  The others were not, but wanted a big contract, so they got one that is not predominately guaranteed.  Cam is in the Kaepernick/Dalton category. 


I agree with all of this, it all depends what Cam wants...Money or making the playoffs. Makes sense to offer him an incentive laden contract and let him earn his cash with a team that essentially, rebuilt itself in the middle of the 2014 season but unlike some other teams that will offer more guaranteed money-  haven't sniffed the playoff game in a while-there are worse O lines out there.


another point is that Cam is taking hits, some of it is the O line's fault and some is his style and its going to be a concern for a many teams that could offer more cash.


I really think the Getts made some moves for Cam this year ( shipping Smitty out...if the intention was to give him the locker room) and although it was a very tough year on Cam, Getts will offer a Daulton like contract ( like MH said- Some guaranteed money plus signing and other caveats but around $9M cap hit a year). He already has some working parks like KB/Olsen and where will find a D like this?


I think he does take it because it is his team and we have made around the corner in rebuilding process. besides- what other teams have a MFCEO and board like this?

#3188600 We're Coming, Seattle (Pump Up Vid)

Posted by AviationMX on 09 January 2015 - 10:05 AM

Perfect...great job


As much as I'm looking forward to giving Seattle all they can handle and more this weekend, I'm also looking forward to the home games in the playoffs next year....and the year after that...



#3186070 City of Charlotte

Posted by AviationMX on 07 January 2015 - 10:34 PM

saturday was exactly what I love about football, it was loud and had great football conversation at the same time. we were standing at the first play but I noticed the couple behind me weren't...so I asked if it was ok, the women said you better, go get em big guy.


they also could watch the huge screen which made it easier to stand.  it was perfect and having the guys high five the fans after the game was the perfect ending. 


we did have some choice words for Ginn...who turned around to smile at us in the 3rd and said enough please. but it was all in fun and fairly clean chatter


sounds like a college atmosphere is what your looking for.... 

#3184077 The "Ask a Seahawk Fan" Thread

Best thing to come out of Seattle, Bruce fuging Lee.


and James Marshall Hendrix


I have two friends that work in aviation and spent time in SEA...both returned to NC when the wives couldn't take the weather and missed seeing the sun (both girls are from NC). A very expensive career move on their part... 

#3184065 We gave up, they never did

Posted by AviationMX on 07 January 2015 - 07:10 AM

Not this guy...it was going to a transition year and my biggest fear was the fanbase was going to disappear. In some ways it was exciting to see the changes but it was going to be ugly. the only real surprise was the Smitty deal but then he's an old pro and was frustrated with the changes.


I even called the Saints and ATL wins...our rookies were coming along nicely and the D was gaining confidence. 


The division collapse was also a surprise but this is a great opportunity for the nextGen Panthers to get some playoff experience.


Win or lose I'm always proud of our team and if we can get this young team some extra reps on national TV, even better...
