  1. The last post in here was a few weeks ago and it's the middle of the Nascar season with the Charlotte race just finished last week. This sub forum is a wasteland. Sent from the Carolina Huddle App
  2. Soccer fans believe they can be more active than Nascar fans. Thus, if they can make this sub forum more active within the next few weeks, it will belong solely to them. The Nascar forum will be no more and lost into the abyss.
  3. If Gettleman's worst drafting issue is a later round reach once a year... I'll take it.
  4. Who is throwing the towel in on him? I am simply saying he looks awful in OTA's which will translate to him looking really awful once the pads are on in camp. His feet are extremely slow, Johnson and Hardy will eat him alive. He is a 3 year project minimum. You wanting him to compete right now at tackle is nuts.
  5. My thoughts as well, but 6'2 isn't all that big these days. It does seem to me with King getting more snaps at WR than McNutt the coaching staff may be giving McNutt every opportunity possible to make the team, including PR.
  6. Here is a clue... If you look bad in OTA's, you don't want to put the pads on. It gets worse.
  7. The Panthers need to fill a huge hole left by Ted Ginn in the punt return game. Ginn was the first legitimate threat the Panthers had had in many seasons, replacing him won't be easy. Yesterday at OTA's the order of punt returners went as follows: Antoine Cason Marvin McNutt Philly Brown De'Andre Presley Cason and McNutt got the majority of the punts. The other two fielded at the end of the drill. Antoine Cason returned punts in San Diego for the last several games of the 2010 season. Then San Diego Defensive Coordinator Ron Rivera must have taken note. This could be Cason's real purpose this season. Cason returned punts in college, running back two for touchdowns. He is the front runner for the spot. As far as I can tell, McNutt has no punt return experience. Philly Brown is a promising prospect at punt returner. He could be fast enough and shifty enough to win the job. He also does have experience, including this run back against Wisconsin. I can see him competing with Cason. De'Andre Presley, who played QB, WR, CB and also returned punts at App State has an outside shot, but will need more snaps to impress. He was last in line to return, and only had a single grab.

  8. The Canadian looks pretty bad even in OTA's, so I am not sure why u would want that. Sent from the Carolina Huddle App
  9. For Lola and Boo...(and a few of you fellas too)
  10. He looks bigger this year than last year to me. But yeah, definitely looks the part of the OT role. I predict he will start at LT. Sent from the Carolina Huddle App
  11. Reaves looked really slow today with the 4th string. Not sure he is going to make it.
  12. Yes, and it doesn't make life easier for me.
  13. The 2014 OTA's kicked off with an unlikely cut up, none other than Luke Kuechly who switched jersey's with Chase Blackburn to throw the local media a curveball. Cam Newton was escorted out of the tunnels on a cart, which at first caused me concern. When Cam saw his picture being taken, he hid behind his jersey in a clowning manner. Although he did walk with a hobble, Cam was able to participate partially by throwing the ball. A great sign for Panthers fans. During warmups, Cam was visibly excited about the wingspan of Kelvin Benjamin and the possibilities it presents. Kelvin looked good in drills but was frustrated by the cornerbacks. At one point he got into a scuffle with Dockery. Nothing major, no punches thrown, but it was apparent Kelvin does not take to kindly to being covered tightly. Something he will need to work on. It was broken up quickly. I was actually happy to see the rookie stand up to a vet. Obligatory Tiquan Underwood hair shot.... Underwood had a solid day. He caught several nice passes. On one play he was able to get behind Russell and Byndom, two undrafted rookies, for a 30 yard gain. Underwood also looked impressive over the middle. As expected, Kugbilla spent the day on the bike and on the sidelines working on his conditioning. He did not have the day off by any means, but was not active on the playing field. This new group of receivers seem to already have a nice chemistry going. Which is important. General Observations of the day, in no particular order ... - Bell and Chandler both had equal time at both left and right tackle throughout the day. We won't know who goes where until August. - At one point Trai Turner was put in at first string right guard next to Nate Chandler. I must admit the prospect of Chandler and Turner blocking next to each other in the run game was exciting to see. - Philly Brown was a winner today and had the best play of the day, a nice over the top TD where he beat Josh Thomas. - Ben Jacobs had a nice INT on a terribly thrown Derek Anderson pass. - Cotchery had a really nice sideline grab tight between two defenders. - Kenjon Barner had a rough day. He was stifled most of the time at the line and ended practice in a shoulder sling. - AJ Klein earned high praise from the coaching staff during practice. "Great Call AJ!" was heard. Klein is making a name for himself as a student of the game. - Roman Harper was SS and Thomas DeCoud was FS for the starting unit. - Denicos Allen had a really nice tip that would have been a completion. He plays bigger than his size. - Joe Webb looked very rusty and did not throw well. Click here to view the article
  14. I did that to see who was so nerdy as to bring it up. Guess what? Sent from the Carolina Huddle App
  15. We can go as long as we want but you have to tell them ahead of time how long. I put in for 45 minutes last night not expecting it to go that long. I will put in for an hour next time. During training camp yeah it could go longer especially when I can record and upload player interviews.
  16. Thanks. Sammi Jo is great. Overall I am pleased with he first outing. You can expect better things from here. There are lots of features I have planned once things get going this football season. Sent from the Carolina Huddle App

  18. Thanks for the feedback everyone. The most pressing issue is the internet connection at the studio. The mics are fine, the skype connection was poor. This is a starting point, it will only get better from there.
  19. Unsure right now. Weekly starting at training camp. Maybe do something special from Spartanburg. Sent from the Carolina Huddle App
