  1. To me there is a definite line between the so-called strategy of "tanking" versus an honest assessment of how this team will compete. "tanking" is for losers. You build a team of competitors and coach them up to stink? Why? You'd just have to clean house again the next year to clear out the losers. I could care less if we pick #1 or #10 or #18. The only strategy that makes sense is to aim for that pick #32.
  2. Didn't say Tepper was mad. I said he "lost" Tepper in that he wasn't going to bet a third season on Cam's health. No one is ever going to prove one way or another that Cam should have had surgery or even that he needed surgery. I'm not privvy to the details of the 3 opinions and I am assuming no one on this board is either. Add to that the nebulous nature of a lisfranc injury as it is. Knowing how much Cam cares about the game and the Panthers and his own legacy I have no doubt he would have played if there was any chance of pulling that off. My entire issue with this is how quickly some can place 100% of the blame on Tepper and/or the front office. Both sides were in untenable positions. Given how terrible the choices were, and with all the other turnover and problems from the past years, I'm really impressed with how the Panthers have positioned themselves to compete in 2020.... if they get the chance.
  3. on Nov 1st we were 4-3 and coming off a 51-13 humiliating loss that exposed all 3 phases of our game as crappy. Much like the year before and the Steeler game. ( Another game Tepper will never forget.) At that moment we needed Cam to come back or at least make concrete plans to come back and instead he went to get a 3rd opinion. JMO, but I think that is when he lost Tepper. Then, after going on IR Cam decided to get surgery in December where his recovery would come in March. Forcing the Panthers (and, in the end, the rest of the NFL) to negotiate any extension or new contract while Cam's health was less than 100%. Then, as pointed out in the article, Covid-19 did us no favors. Don't get me wrong, I hate that Cam is not our #1 any longer. But to place 100% of the blame on the Panther organization is not a correct reading of all the facts. And if you want proof of that you only have to see that Cam's services are still available.
  4. Camfan, and not an expert. But I recall the Panthers wanting him to come back to team after IR and Cam flying off to MN get a (3rd?) opinion. Made sense on Cam's part, not wanting to come back to a dumpster fire and souring his total take on a new contract. But I think from that moment Tepper wrote him off.
  5. Nope, we need to save every possible 6th and 7th rounder to target Payton’s secret crushes.
  6. O/T but did Payton get permanent eyeliner tatoo's? Looked super creepy when they were doing home interview about his positive test for Covid 19 and Douchebaggery. Also, I looked up where 6th rounders get contracts just under $3m for 4 years? I know practice squad salaries are pretty well set but this ego move by Payton cost his team draft picks, a still to be determined $$$ cap hit and a spot on either the active roster or PS that could be used for a position of need. Thank you?
  7. I hate the idea of Greg over there but this is funny
  8. reads OP, finishes first page, observes 7 more and growing, checks out
  9. points to writer for using "imperial" as acronym for "AssWipe"
  10. Good point. Although that may be why it has only been announced that they "have agreed to terms" and not actually signed the contract? I was actually starting to think that this approach was the saints skirting league rules and trying to take Winston off the market while simultaneously trying to fit him under the cap. Also, any actual signing before June 1 will affect comp picks so I am sure the saints aren't pushing the matter. But at the same time they reap the benefits of taking him off the market. I wish some other team (not mine) would push this and try to top the saints offer.
  11. The "Quarterback Listener" is still available on Amazon. And I don't know why everyone is assuming Winston will be the 3rd stringer. He has more career receptions to saints players (10) than Hill does (7).
  12. I hope you are right about Brown excelling right off the bat. But interior DL is a position where that does not happen all the time even with a quality player.
  13. I wanted Simmons because he is the epitome of the modern pro player. But I totally get why we drafted Brown. The draft value of interior DL is just higher than LB, Safety or Edge, even if one guy can line up at all 3. If we had the DL even in half ass shape we could have taken the luxury of drafting Simmons but this really is a no-brainer.
  14. okean fwon wthea!!! Brown pick 8.9 Panthers could not afford luxury of a simmons pick
  15. yes, I wanted the next coming of Luke. But our team does not have that luxury. We had to have. Repeat, HAD to have a DL.
  16. I know more than a few Bengals fans that will give up the NFL if they pass on OH native Burrow.
