  1. Hey  KB Fan.   Enjoy your comments.

    Off topic for a minute.  I think you told me you were out of the country.  If that's true,  can you share how one might watch Panther game when in foreign country ?   I will be in France for the Oct 1st game against Atlanta, and would like to watch it if possible (   Paris to be exact, but not sure if there are sports bars there lol, nor if a Panther game would be on,,)  Can we stream games off  FOX  ?

    Thanks for any help

  3. Jonathan Jones has an interesting tidbit posted at the Observer this morning: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/nfl/carolina-panthers/nfl-blog/article80954337.html here's an excerpt: Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera had almost reached his boiling point on a hot Tuesday morning less than an hour into his team’s organized team activities session. Furious with how many times his defensive linemen were being fooled by Cam Newton’s hard counts, Rivera almost re-started the entire practice from the beginning. Defenders jumped no fewer than three times, including one from Super Bowl stud defensive end Kony Ealy that had defensive line coach Eric Washington shouting at his players. “I was real close to starting practice over again,” Rivera said. “I know we have a time limit but when the coaches stepped up and just started going right at the guys I backed off and let the coaches handle it.” Read more here: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/nfl/carolina-panthers/nfl-blog/article80954337.html#storylink=cpy
  4. Yeah, that was my least favorite Panthers' tidbit to read today. In reality I'd assume Remmers would first get a crack at LT, with D. Williams taking over for Remmers at RT.
  5. Bill Voth has his notes & observations posted. http://blackandbluereview.com/panthers-2nd-offseason-practice-session/
  6. @Nick81, Oher makes Shaq look small in that pic!
  7. He was there. Reports were that he had a pick-six of a pass from Cam to Bersin..., so seems like he's fine. So fortunate. Hope he realizes how blessed he is to be on the field today and not in a hospital bed...
  8. I like that look for Stephen Hill. The mouth guard makes him look like a fierce and formidable competitor. Granted it's just a couple of photos, but he looks focused. Also, sounds like he wants to catch some of that J-No mojo. (Last year it was always J-No who was last off the field, IIRC, and look at the season he had!)
  9. Was just watching the latest Panthers' video mailbag. http://www.panthers.com/media-vault/videos/Mailbag-Deep-at-wide-receiver/56ffe1d3-88c7-4e82-b407-da3843f789b1 In response to a question, Max Henson claimed Bersin still is eligible for the PS?? I wonder if that's maybe under the exemption where you can have one (or 2?) players over the normal limit? I was surprised by this news. If Bersin is indeed PS eligible, it definitely becomes hard to see him get a spot on the 53. But I could see him possibly making the PS as backup since he knows the offense so well.
  10. A few of us asked a question I don't think I've seen answered yet in this thread. Most of us (myself included) have eliminated Teddy Williams from the roster projection. But, if we do that, who among the projected players would fill the role of Gunner in special teams? In 2014 we were hurt badly by a lack of speed on special teams. That became a BIG focus of the 2015 offseason. Can we afford to get rid of Teddy Williams and still have enough speed on ST?
  11. By the way, I tallied up the WR vote tallies in Igo's "pick your WR" thread... Ginn, Brown, Garrett were the picks. [KB & Funchess were assumed to be automatic locks] Vote totals: 1. TED GINN JR: 61 votes 2. PHILLY BROWN: 49 votes 3. KEYARRIS GARRETT: 41 votes 4. Byrd: 22 votes 5. Hill: 12 votes 6 (tie) Bersin & Norwood with 7 votes each 8. Cobi Hamilton: 1 vote
  12. Wow, we've got another Priority Free Agent who we reportedly gave a 20K bonus to. Devon "Rockhead" Johnson http://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/nfl/carolina-panthers/nfl-blog/article78658547.html
  13. Nice post. I think Miley could make the roster (over Horton). We certainly thought highly enough of him last season to keep him from being poached. Also, to add to you 2016 list, I think Keyarris Garrett got $9,000. Think I read that at the Observer. Obviously not in the same ballpark as Cash (I was surprised at the difference, to be honest). DG is doing a very nice job with his PFA signings! One of the reasons he is able to make some trades to move up to get players he likes... he's got confidence (and a track record) that he'll find some solid talent among the UDFAs.
  14. Too funny. Too Typical. @jdpanther5 says clearly in 3 sentences what it takes me half a page to say! I have had too many years of needing to bloviate in writing reports & funding proposals for bureaucratic organizations. I have officially become a windbag!
  15. Not bad.... here are a few changes / thoughts. (Note: I've not yet read anyone else's comments, so apologies if I write the same things others may have already said). Agree re: 25 on Offense, 25 on Defense and 3 on ST as the most likely breakdown, Agree. I know some suggest cutting Webb. I don't see it unless we find another similar ST ace / Swiss Army Knife. Webb has made himself very valuable to the team, plus he's a lot of fun to watch as a preseason QB. Win-Win. I have a sneaking suspicion we'll keep 4 TEs, (or 3 "TEs" and a 2nd "FB"). It seems to me we're trying hard to find someone in that hybrid FB-TE role. I've been assuming Sandland is more of a receiving-TE to groom behind Greg. I think we're grooming someone to replace both Ed Dickson & Mike Tolbert. I'm not totally sure Dickson will make the roster. Our sheer aggressiveness in purging the roster of other veterans this season (Cotch, Harper, Boykin, J-No, [and think too that we seemed prepared to let CJ and Tolbert walk...!], and bringing in so many TEs in addition to Sandland suggests to me that Gettleman wants to see real change at this position and wants young guys to be playing. But how soon that change happens is had for me to judge. If we do keep a 4th TE it would be at the expense of the 10th Oline player (Foucault). I don't think we keep 10 Oline. Agree we keep only 5 WRs unless one of the other speedsters (Byrd?) wins a role on ST. But given that we only usually activate 4 WRs, keeping 6 seems unrealistic. (A 6th WR would mean keeping only 3 TEs and 9 Oline). Agree with KB, Funch, Ginn & Brown (unless his shoulder injury hampers him.) Personally, I think Norwood may beat out Hill, but that's just a pure guess. Garrett is a wild card. He could ball out and surprise people and win that 5th spot. But it would have to be pretty extreme dominance since he has PS-eligibility while I don't think either Norwood or Hill do. (Of course any of those three, even if eligible, might not be safe on the PS). Agree. As mentioned above under TE, I think we're interested in grooming a hybrid FB/TE this year, and so keeping a player like Bonnet or FB/RB Devon Johnson could be possible.... I could see 3 TE / 2 FB (with 1 being a FB/TE) or 4 TE / 1 FB. I predict only 9 Oline on the roster. (Heck, we only had 8 much of last season... we were very fortunate to have so few injuries. Don't want to tempt fate again.). We're clearly looking at backups who have position versatility, which is why I think 9 could be reasonable. Hopefully we do sign an experienced, solid free agent. I think Foucault is gone unless he has had a miraculous transformation we don't yet know about. So, Overall on Offesne I'm pretty confident about: 9 Oline 3 QBs 3 RBs The other 10 players on offense would be either: 5 WRs / 4 TEs / 1 FB 6 WRs / 3 TEs / 1 FB 5 WRs / 3 TEs / 2 FB It all depends who balls out and is ready to make an impact, who we feel we need to protect by putting them on the 53, and who might have a role on ST. Agree with 9. And agree with the 5 DE / 4 DT split. Not sure Horton makes it. He was clearly #53 on the 53 man roster last year, waived twice... I don't remember which of our other young DEs (Miley, Cox) was promising against the run... I'll guess that Miley makes the roster since we worked hard to protect him from the PS last season. Agree 100% with these 6. I think there's a VERY SLIM chance (<20%) that we keep a 7th LB in place of a 5th Safety. It all depends on ST and what we are planning / who we are grooming in case of AJ Klein's departure. Agree with 5 on the 53 man roster. Not sure #5 will be Lou Young. I think we'll keep Robert McClain around awhile as an experienced backup to the youngsters. He has experience playing both outside and slot. Can backup both positions. Perhaps the biggest Cahnuh question is whether Bene starts in the slot or on the outside... And of course, we could be sneaky and get a "free" 6th corner with Charles Tillman on the PUP. I'd still really love to see this happen. (I know I sound like a broken record). He's just SUCH a classy guy and has so much to teach the players. Of course we could try to hire him as an Asst Coach, but it's not quite the same as being on the roster as a player. Just a question: With Teddy Williams gone, who do we use as Gunner on ST? His penalties were infuriating, but his speed was really nice... Agree. Slim chance if we think we MUST have another Corner or LB that it comes at expense of safety. But that's just a slim chance. Agree at this point based on who is on the roster. But I think Swayze Waters is not certain. I could see G'man still trying to go with an experienced NFL vet punter if one is released... Question: would Waters have PS eligibility? If for any reason the Punter battle was not clearly decided between him and some as-yet-unsigned Vet, I could see us keeping Waters on the PS for a few weeks early in the season while we decide who to go with for the long term...
