#3360769 UDFA Damiere Byrd - WR - South Carolina

Posted by x djdrew x on 08 May 2015 - 06:54 PM

i've followed Byrd through his career at South Carolina-- 

 

my impressions over the course of that would be:

 

he's tiny, will need to pack on some weight to not get absolutely destroyed in the NFL.

he's a great deep threat, but the Gamecocks rarely had someone who could hit him in stride, which I think Cam could do all day long.

this last year, he did show that he was more than just a "Go route" kind of guy, but as others have reiterated, lots of work for him to do there.

 

I feel like if we are able to give him a 'redshirt' year on the practice squad, if he bulks up/gets a little bit stronger, and starts to learn how to run better (more diverse) routes, he could be a sneaky good deep threat. 

 

With athletes all over the field for the Gamecocks, everyone always said that Byrd was hands down the fastest guy on the team, FWIW.




#3351063 Round 5, Pick 33, 169th Overall The Carolina Panthers Select LB David Mayo,...

Posted by x djdrew x on 02 May 2015 - 02:38 PM

I think maybe Dave was eating a sammich, unaware we were on the clock so suddenly, and said "Hey guys, I think I need some mayo."

 

A try-hard assistant nearby thought Dave was looking at the draft board-- and took that as "That's who Mr Gettleman wants--the only guy named Mayo in the draft. Write it down and send it over!"

 

And that my friends, is the story of David Mayo becoming a Panther.

Who? A forth round pick makes the Failcants draft = the best? Where am I ? Did a dae? 




#3348637 Panthers trade up to 9th pick of second round - select Devin Funchess

Posted by x djdrew x on 01 May 2015 - 09:34 PM

Here's a fun fact: There is someone that won't get drafted tomorrow that Gettleman will bup bup bup ...sign in a heartbeat and make an impact this season. 

 

With 5 more draft picks left plus our recent success for picking up quality talent in the UDFA market, hard not to see our team getting stronger this weekend! 




#3348550 Draft value chart

Posted by x djdrew x on 01 May 2015 - 09:15 PM

Seahawks just traded from 95th to 69th for a WR. Gave up 130, 167, 181 picks for the move. For Tyler Lockett. How does this trade value out?

 69th= 245 

Seahawks gain 245 pts

 

95th 120

130 42

167 24.6

181  19

 Redskins gain 205.6 pts

 

seems that per the chart, Redskins got raped a lil, but that's kind of the story of their franchise lol

imagine that, 'fair value'. Some people really think we got bent over for this trade but it makes sense when it works out to be equal and it's someone we feel great about.

#3303638 Panthers checking out more OL Depth

Posted by x djdrew x on 28 March 2015 - 02:36 PM

I think we will draft a project OL with one of those 5th rounders we have and add another body or two to give us a lot of choices and an across the board improvement over what we started last year with. Even if Oher is terrible, no way he's as bad as Bell, right guys? Right?

#3195284 Congratulations Panthers on a pretty good season

Posted by x djdrew x on 10 January 2015 - 11:13 PM

Considering 5-6 weeks ago, everyone including myself wanted to tank, fire Rivera, sack Cam, scratch everyone and throw away their fandom because we were so terrible. I give them props for keeping it going and making me feel like i was misjudging them.

 

Let's get better this offseason and smack these fools in the mouth for the NFCS 3 peat!




#3158972 Division crown pie

Posted by x djdrew x on 28 December 2014 - 06:59 PM

despite me being on the RR hater train, who can possibly be upset with back to back Division champs and hosting a playoff game for the 2nd straight year?? What is happening, is this real life?




#3137927 "you dont win in this league by kicking field goals" - Ron Rivera

Posted by x djdrew x on 15 December 2014 - 07:29 PM

Obviously RR blacked out during the 2nd half and OT of the Bengals game since we did try to win by kicking field goals...hmm.




#3128181 The only QB with a higher QB rating than Derek Anderson is Aaron Rodgers

Posted by x djdrew x on 10 December 2014 - 01:17 AM

If Stewart can hang 150+ yards rushing on the Bucs I might even be comfortable with Pickles behind center.

Whoa... Pickles? Let's not get crazy.... :lol:

 

With that being said, I can't say I disagree with you !




#3123799 Ron Rivera Will Now Proceed To Save His Job

Posted by x djdrew x on 07 December 2014 - 07:35 PM

while beating the Taints makes me incredibly happy, I have this sinking feeling that beating a dead horse (taints) will somehow forgive the repeated butt-pounding we have received from any team we've played that was actually competent. 

 

I have no doubt that Rivera will save his job. Call him  Tuesday-trash-pickup Ron, because he knows how to coach when things are in Garbage time.

 

Fug you Ron.

 

Never felt this little excitement after a win in quite some time.
