  1. I doubt this is the only Vet CB we sign but at least we can field a defense now.
  2. Simply not true. Concussions...yes but Luke played through many injuries without ever coming off the field. He had multiple surgeries for injuries after the season was finished that non of the fans knew about while the games were being played.
  3. I always hear this from the Panthers...we go into the season with a glaring hole, and we as fans expect it to be a big name vet player still in the market, looking to prove themselves for a one year minimum deal, but we get news a day or two later that we signed a complete no name who will end up starting.
  4. Not really “defending” much but hey...it’s PFT. I normally wouldn’t post but it’s an interesting discussion between fans during this slow time on who was at fault with surgeries and timing throughout Cams career.
  5. The Panthers waited until March 24 to release Cam Newton. The quarterback remains a free agent. The team has received some criticism for not releasing Newton earlier. Former Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert went further recently, telling Joe Person of TheAthletic.com that the team has mismanaged Newton’s injuries in recent seasons. “They’ve been doing him wrong timing-wisefor the past two or three years, if you ask me,” Tolbert said. “It goes back to his shoulder surgery. Everyone knew his shoulder was messed up in the middle of the year two years ago. But they wait until offseason gets ready to start to have shoulder surgery. Makes no sense. Timing’s off. As soon as he got hurt (last) preseason against the Patriots, they were saying, ‘Oh, he’s got a high-ankle sprain.’ I looked at it on film carefully. It’s not a high-ankle sprain. You could tell that 10 minutes after the play. You knew it’s a mid-foot sprain, Lisfranc, something like that. But you wait until December for him to beg you to have surgery. He shouldn’t have been out there Week One and Two. He shouldn’t have been out there probably until Week Four or Five, at minimum.” Panthers General Manager Marty Hurney was asked about Tolbert’s comments in a Wednesday interview with WFNZ. “I understand,” Hurney said. “Everyone is going to have their opinions, and they’re certainly entitled to them. I have great respect for our medical staff and I have great respect for Cam Newton.” Newton missed all but two games in 2019 because of a Lisfranc fracture. He had a shoulder injury that prematurely ended his 2018 season. Newton, 31, has played all 16 games only once in the past four seasons. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/05/27/marty-hurney-defends-medical-staff-over-panthers-handling-of-cam-newton/
  6. With the contract we have in place, we really aren’t in a bad position either way. If he works out, he will be underpaid. If it does not, we can easily move on after one season if needed.
  7. After watching Allen last year people will love Teddy after a couple games. CMC will make anyone look good, and with a decent QB who protects the ball, along with someone else who can beat single coverage, we will be in good shape on offense.
  8. He was “signed” though. For Cam it is definitely bad timing with the restrictions/large amount of free agent starting QBs/still rehabbing. He’s going to have to wait for a starter to go down with injury if he is not going to be a backup next season.
  9. People who claim it’s because he can’t take a physical need to ask why all the other free agents were able to meet up with teams and get team doctors to look at everything in order to be signed...same way that our doctors were able to pass him before he was cut. The timing didn’t help, but Cam is still recovering, and that’s what is hurting him right now. The bigger question is why he waited so long to decide on surgery. He could have been months ahead of his rehab at this point.
  10. It’s going to be a rough year but we have a bright future. Our defense alone will cost us as our rookies develop, not to mention the short offseason we will be facing.
  11. Cam was/is the man but it’s time to move on folks.
  12. Realistically we need two vets and I’ll be satisfied with our young defense going into next season. It’s going to be wild enough not having a traditional camp, and anyone with a brain does not expect us to be a contending defense until next season minimum. I am extremely excited about the future, and to see what the young players can do, but we will see many rookie mistakes that hopefully get cleaned up by seasons end.
  13. Ross Cockrell please. Played surprisingly well last year coming back from that horrific injury and is a Pros pro. He should be even better after having a full year to get back into playing shape and can play multiple spots.
  14. How do you know how low his ceiling is? I’ve seen him dominate against the best college had to offer, and if he continues to develop, he can be dominate in the NFL.
