    Carolina Panthers teasing us again.

    Looks like BB could be disappointed if it comes down to a SB XXXVIII rematch.

    Golf Clubs

    One thing that changed my game dramatically was getting clubs the right length. The first set I got on my own ended up being too short because I bought standard clubs and I wasted money on the clubs and I really started to hate golf. The second set I got fitted for and it worked out much better for me because I was able to swing properly instead of being bent over too far. My second set ended up running about $400 -$450, but the extra 1.5 inches on club length made a world of difference.

    Give Hurney some credit

    Hurney's biggest blunders were giving ridiculous deals to home grown players and horrible draft day trades. I don't remember him making any huge FA day 1 moves. Not saying it didn't happen, I just don't remember off the top of my head. We're less than 2 days into FA. Still have a long way to go to judge the offseason moves. It's a marathon, not a sprint.
  4. I've grown numb to the Panthers offseason in general. Every year seems to be the same, bitching because we are stuck with a couple guys who got their contract and either got fat and lazy or didn't live up to the hype, a couple in house extensions that make you scratch your head, and dumpster diving for 2 day old bread FA that should have retired 3 years ago. That is followed by a lot of hype about how this year is going to be different, but it never really is, other than 2015.

    Thomas Davis signed with the Chargers

    I guess I can go watch TD play in SD when I go visit the fam for cheap.

    Daryl Williams

    We invested. We just didn't do it well.

    Would you draft QB Kyler Murray?

    Are we sure he wouldn't see the field? I hate to think it but it's likely Cam has a couple years left. Following 2 shoulder surgeries, we need to face the likelihood that Cam could be done in Carolina sooner rather than later. If you think Cam is absolutely 100% and will be for a few years, move past him, if he isn't, it's something you have to consider.

    Shots Fired - #gettlemagic

    SS said that he's worth what his contract said he was worth. That's not how the NFL salary cap works. If that was the case, you wouldn't see guys on their rookie deals demanding new contracts. There wouldn't be hold outs for more money. Guys would gladly take pay reductions when they weren't producing. At the end of the day, DG treated people as numbers. He separated himself from making emotional decisions, and he was probably cold and callous towards people. DG was good at what he did, finding bargain basement free agents because of limited to no cap space, and he had some success in the draft, especially late round. I don't have an issue with what he did as a GM, other than he lacked people skills and his ego got the best of him. I just don't think Carolina was necessarily a good fit for him, especially with JR's family first ideal.
  9. I'd have to let him walk for that cost, especially coming off a knee injury. Too much risk for the kind of guaranteed money he's going to want.

    Ron ranked in top 10 of NFL head coaches

    It does require more players than just 2, but without 2 HoF at the most important positions on offense and defense, other coaches have managed back to back winning seasons. Take away Cam and Luke and its George Seifert 2.0

    Ron ranked in top 10 of NFL head coaches

    If you have what many here consider to be a HoF QB and the best MLB of this decade and cant manage back to back winning seasons, you're not a top 10 head coach. He may be a players coach, but piss poor clock management, unwavering loyalty to lesser players/coaches/friends in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, and a ridiculous refusal to change anything no matter how obvious its needed, make him a middle of the road coach at best.

    Sounds like Devin Funchess is gone

    If I remember that debacle correctly, Edwards was being considered a 6th or 7th rd pick.

    The 2018 All Penalty Team

    Actually it would be the opposite. Rivera has shown he's not disciplined with clock management and timeouts. It fits with the undisciplined theme. It's the offseason. We have our fun where we can.

    John Ross

    I wouldn't mind seeing what he could do as a punt returner but only for a late late round pick. The salary over the next 2 would make that pretty much impossible though.

    Someone has to be the coach of this "team"
