  1. Let's hope you are right. Teams that win Super Bowls do not draft the Rashaun Gauldens, Edmund Kugbilas, Daryl Worleys, or Zach Sanchez of the world. We need to start hitting on more of our mid-round picks. No one doubts our first and second round picks are hits more times than not. But our depth is piss poor. Every year we are an injury or two away from irrelevance (Cam obviously but even moreso than that).

  2. Great post. Only thing I disagree with is, unfortunately, I don't think Olsen can be a top-3 TE in the league anymore. I really hope I'm wrong but I think he will turn into a Tony Gonzalez or Jason Witten in their final 2 years. By no means is that bad. But I don't see anymore 1,000 yd seasons in his future. I think 600 yds and a good red-zone target may be his ceiling. That's why we drafted a WR in the first and second rounds the last few years. It's time to play modern football.

    If I'm completely wrong than this will be the best offense in Panthers history, by a mile.

  3. It's been thrown around a few times but, with the signing now official, we need to know the most important remaining question. Where was the lunch held? It will come out one day, and the winner will be showered with all the internet respect one can buy. I've gone back and forth on this, and my gut tells me that they did not go to a 5-star steakhouse. My guess... Pinkys Westside grill

    Tepper is the guy who was quite happy to tell the South Carolina legislature "No problem, we'll build it in Charlotte".  If he's involved the the NFLPA negotiations, he'd probably be happy to tell them "No problem, we'll bring in replacement players".  He seems like a super no-nonsense kinda guy.

    I wonder when he will bring out the Panther special: Pie charts

  5. We throw this phrase around a lot, but Samuel truly is our X factor this year. DJ proved in limited time last year his has the ability to be a #1. Samuel has the chance to be something we haven't had since Mushin Muhammad, a true, #2 playmaker on the outside, something that Devin Funchess was supposed to be and failed miserably at (let alone his go at #1 WR). 

    When Samuel is on the field, he makes plays. He can be special. He needs to prove he can play 16 games first, though.

    Who cares who drafted him? This is about paying him 9.2M THIS year. Not his cheap rookie deal 

     And where’s he playing in a 3-4 nickel package? 

    I’d rather pay him 9M this year to see if he can play when he’s THE guy then go ahead and give him a 5 year extension with guaranteed money to save a few million this year. If he turns out to not be able to make it we cut him no strings attached after this year. This was the right thing to do

    Then maybe he shouldn’t have been signed in the first place. 

     And any draft pick could provide what Shaq does. For 8M less. What has Shaq done in his career that can’t be easily replaced?  

    We won’t know that until the end of this season. He’s a TD replacement and have been playing out of position his entire career because of this. Hurney didn’t draft the guy mind you.
