#2151908 Which 2013 O-Line combo gives us the best chance to win more that 7 games?

Posted by rayzor on 05 March 2013 - 02:40 PM

quickest/best/cheapest fix is having a healthy kalil and bringing in a vet RG. a step further in the right direction would be picking up another RT in FA that is better than bell. shouldn't be too hard to pull off, esp. for a decent price.

the real weak link is the right side. the left will be fine...not studly, but fine with kalil back and amini having a year under his belt. i'd still expect to see amini struggle, but mainly because he's still in his first couple years where they are likely to have roller skates for cleats.

the right side can be upgraded pretty easily without breaking the bank.

we don't need a stud OL. we don't need perenial all-pros or even pro-bowlers (not that the pro-bowl designation means jack). we just need guys who aren't going to get pushed around and who can get a little bit of a push. with the RB corps that we have (way under-utilized, overpaid, but still reaaaalllly good), and cam being the mobile playmaker that he is, we just don't need much on the OL except for being serviceable.

i would say adding another playmaker to the WR corps who can get open and handle/command double teams with a serviceable OL would help out a lot more than having an elite OL with our receiving corps as-is.


#2149240 We are going to get raped once Cam's contract comes up...

I have a great idea! Trade Cam for a crap load of picks this year and Draft Geno!








































I'm serious.




#2148988 An example of Bill Polian's "genius"

Posted by rayzor on 01 March 2013 - 04:05 PM

He sure had a lot of success for being such an awful GM...

drafted peyton manning. that's about the extent of it. nothing else special about what he did.

btw, he's the guy that hired jim mora, sr. he wasn't allowed to hire any coaches after that and he was against hiring dungy.

polian isn't liked around the league. he and his son are considered toxic, meddlers, and pricks.

their success had everything to do with peyton and little to do with building a team. they had a lot of success drafting from '98-'06, but after that was considered pretty bad...and a lot of that had to do with their personnel guru and top talent evaluator, dom anile, getting pushed out of the job by polian's son.

i've said it many times...bill polian is overrated around these parts.


#2146561 This is why no one takes Florio seriously as a writer

lots of reasons to point and laugh at florio.

this wasn't one.


#2142619 Once Gamble is Cut, Cornerback Becomes Our Biggest Need

Posted by rayzor on 23 February 2013 - 09:02 PM

gamble is a player we can move away from and barely notice. he's not a difference maker. we're not any better or worse of because of him being on or off the field.

it's not any more of a need than it was before.


#2142401 According to Person we're keeping Williams...

Posted by rayzor on 23 February 2013 - 03:45 PM

I don't see where or how is it that we're keeping Williams. If it's just because Gettleman said, "I don't see why not." That's not enough to actually believe williams will stay here.

Had he said. "Yes, there are no plans to cut Williams." Then I would believe it. This sounds more like he's putting the ball on Williams court. I'm expecting a restructure.

Keep in mind that he also said that he would do what he has to do.

exactly. pure speculation on behalf of person with this article.


#2141499 Everyone be honest.

Posted by rayzor on 22 February 2013 - 01:29 PM

People say cut Gamble and D-Lo because it's the popular thing to say, but if we can get under the cap with them restructuring, then I say keep the both of them.

agreed, but when i think restructuring with those two guys and beason....it's gonna have to take a thomas davis type restructure where you basically rip up the old contract and sign a new one that won't hurt the cap.


#2141495 Nakamura Pay Cut

Posted by rayzor on 22 February 2013 - 01:26 PM

meh, he cost us on ST this year as well...

I think at this point he is camp fodder

agreed. he's done nothing to warrant having a roster spot handed to him. he's on the same footing with any udfa we pick up, imo.


#2140905 Gettleman says he'll use FA to put Panthers in position to take best play...

Posted by rayzor on 21 February 2013 - 08:29 PM

free agency should be the primary means of addressing needs, not the draft.


#2140082 Ideally which position do you want filled in the 1st round?

Posted by rayzor on 20 February 2013 - 09:15 PM

ideally we'd address RG and RT in FA, redo gamble and gross deals for cheap so we don't have to go through the hassle of trying to replace them, sign canty, switch out ron edwards for dwan, and then draft WR and FS in the first couple rounds.

that's my ideal anyway.

#2140020 WR's drafted by the Panthers since 2002 - the case to draft a WR in round 1?

Posted by rayzor on 20 February 2013 - 08:25 PM

Jennings became the number 1 wr his 3rd year. When he got the most targets on his team 139 caught 80 balls for 1,200 yards and 9 TD. He reach his full potential his 3rd year. His 2nd year he had 30 less rec. and 50 less targets. He wasn't facing the other teams best CB nor was his TEam main target. Driver was but that change his third season. I'll break down the rest of your crap later.

lol crap.

i'm not talking about full potential. i'm talking about ability to make an impact. what player from any position reaches their full potential in the first couple years of playing? i doubt that aj green and julio jones reached their full potential yet. did randy moss reach his his rookie year?

you don't have to wait years to tell if you'll be anything more than an average WR, which is all we have aside from smitty...and that's being generous.

for many you can tell quickly what they are likely to become.

now i'm sure you're going to find one little stat that you'll spin "masterfully" to back up your "fact" that it takes 3 years or whatever but the honest and real truth is many times it doesn't take long for players to make an impact. some it does...yes. some players take a few years for them to "get it" but that doesn't mean that they don't/can't/won't produce quite a bit because quite often they do.


#2139941 WR's drafted by the Panthers since 2002 - the case to draft a WR in round 1?

Posted by rayzor on 20 February 2013 - 06:27 PM

You might want to check your list Holmes, Jennings didn't blow up until their 3rd year and Plax best year in his Career was his 3rd year. Plus I didn't know we were adding TE.

holmes had 942 and 8 TDs his second year.
jennings had 920 yards and 12 TDs his second year.
burress had 1008 yards and 6 TDs his 2nd year.

i'm not talking about their best year, but i am talking about the imact they had. i don't know what kind of crazy standards you're using, but i'd consider that an impact.

and i'd hardly consider gronk and graham TEs. sure, that's their position but their primary function in the offense is as a receiver.

btw.....i have never said patterson is a "can't miss" prospect. i have said repeatedly he's a "swing for the fences" prospect. i don't consider really any but a very small handful of any draft to be "can't miss" prospects.
