#2718672 Gettleman Isn't a People's Person

Posted by rayzor on 27 March 2014 - 05:05 PM

If anything, this article shows me that Rivera and Gettleman work very closly as a team, something that is out of sight but very important.

Both have the same vision, and idea on how to get there. Watching eachnothers back, teamwork. We do this together mentality.

 

agreed.

When someone speaks for an organization and rubs the entire fanbase the wrong way and their way of handling their star players was a trending topic, then that is obviously not the way the situation was supposed to be handled. Players fled, retired and time will tell if we are able to get relevant free agents for more than a one year contract in their prime. 

 

You think that gross retired and players didn't come back because of gettleman? lol

Yea, anytime a coach has to sit in to make sure his boss doesn't go off topic, absolutely.

What did you get from the article?

coach sitting in to "make sure his boss doesn't go off topic" = boss not a "people's person"?

reeeeeeaaach.

Which is why you need to draft them before you need them. Give them time to develop.

again, great idea if you don't have huge needs in other key areas right now. that's not our situation.

You know your G.M. isn't good with the media when Ron Rivera is tasked with being public relations.  http://espn.go.com/b...taying-on-point

 

that's what you got from that article? lol




#2718448 The Kony Ealy Gambit

Posted by rayzor on 27 March 2014 - 01:46 PM

knowing their philosophy is to keep strengths strong and that DE is a major piece to the overall defensive puzzle is a relevant tie-down to this discussion than bringing up QB, RB, or LB.. lol

 

 

I don't know if people are really saying DE is a smarter move if WR or OT are available, but it certainly doesn't make it a ridiculous move like drafting a QB just because he's BPA...

 

i was being a bit facetious with that example, but still the line needs to be drawn somewhere.

 

imo, the priority needs to be this year. after this year is set, then start looking forward. when we have a full roster with good players in key areas, then we can play this looking ahead game.

 

i would have been ok with ealy had we let hardy go into FA, but even then i'd be pissed at another hole this year being created when we have so many and such a passive approach to filling those needs.

You mean, what we do every year?

 

pretty much. so far that hasn't been a successful philosophy for continued success.




#2718405 The Kony Ealy Gambit

It took about 3 years for both hardy and Johnson to break out.

If we take Ealy now then that's a year he gets to develop in the rotation without the pressure of immediate expectations because we have two studs in front of him.

that's a fine and good approach when you have more pieces together on your roster than we have.

 

what do we do about areas of immediate need? sit and hope that maybe there hasn't been a run on good prospects that we were looking at and continue to take table scraps to fill needs?

I understand what you're saying, but waiting to draft next year is the "two in the bush" to the beast (Ealy) you KNOW you could draft as BPA as the "one in the hand".  All with the knowledge that you can draft likely starters at WR and OT in 2nd/3rd rounds because of some of the best depth in a draft at those positions in many, many a year.

 

All hypothetical for discussion, of course. 

 

but can you guarantee that we will draft a OT or WR those rounds?

 

the whole "address needs through FA so you can pick the best player in the draft" thing is fine as long as you are sticking to the FA part, which we aren't.

 

can it be guaranteed that in rounds 2 and 3 that there will be available the quality we hope is still there? what if there is a big run on WRs and OTs before we get there? i think gettleman was thinking that there'd be more good options available at positions of need when the dust settled in FA. if we wait, it's likely we get bit in the ass.

 

waiting to draft DE next year might be "two in the bush", but so would waiting for an area of more pressing need.

 

we are in a hole. we can't pretend that we aren't.

 

for this year we don't need DE. we don't need a replacement for TD.

 

we DO need WRs. we DO need a LT. we DO need CBs. we can't act like we are set there or like we can sit around and wait.




#2718362 Ron Rivera: Panthers may not need number 1 WR in 2014

Posted by rayzor on 27 March 2014 - 12:44 PM

fox/hurney v.2

 

WRs don't matter. any guy will do.




#2718360 The Kony Ealy Gambit

Posted by rayzor on 27 March 2014 - 12:42 PM

use the first pick on a guy who would be a backup this year while we have huge needs at OT, WR, and CB?

 

makes sense.

 

how about we draft a guy that we could plug into the starting lineup right away?

 

if the goal is to replace either hardy or johnson after this year, why not wait cross that bridge when we come to it and take care of this year, you know...this year.

 

BPA is fine, but lets try to limit the choices to areas of immediate need.

 

 




#2715407 Wish we could double on WR

Posted by rayzor on 25 March 2014 - 06:36 AM

i want us to double up on OT and WR and draft a CB. i think we can do that and come out with really good players.

i'm not crazy about starting rookie OTs at all, but i'm all for drafting them and giving them a chance as long as we bring in decent FA competition for the starting gigs.
