  1. Hey, if the Panthers take him I pray I'm wrong. Gettleman knows infinitely more about football that I do. I am curious as to how you know this though. I know being a photographer on game days and this site give you a lot of insight to the team and palyers but I'm of the believe that outside of Gettlemen and the scouting staff no one really knows for sure who is rated where. Even most players in years past that have been interviewed have no idea what the front office is thinking.
  2. 1. You need a lot more than 3 drafts to find a pattern. There is definitely no defense one year and then offense the next year pattern. That gives me a headache from rolling my eyes so hard. 2. I talked to a guy last week who been a college coach over the last 20 years with a few years coaching on NFL teams. I asked him about Derrick Henry. He said that he'd didn't consider him a first round talent and that any running back from Alabama is suspect when transitioning to the NFL. Said he's taken so many hits already in his career he almost washed up by the time he gets to the NFL. Also, said in the NFL a RB has to have the ability to make someone miss in the hole and Henry can't do that. Now, I know that's only a minute off the cuff conversation with a guy I just meet but I agree with him in addition to other negatives people have of Henry. Runs to upright. Lack of quick acceleration to hit the hole. Etc. I'm not a scout but the more I read of Henry the more and more he reminds me of a slightly taller Eric Shelton. Personally, I think we'll end up with the best available from DE, S, or CB in that order.
  3. Am I missing something with Lawson cause ya'll are talking crazy? I'm a tiger fan and watched every second he's played in college. He's going to be a top 15 pick, maybe top 10. That medical check was requested from one team. All other teams cleared him. His shoulder is fine. In a way I hope it was the Panthers that flagged it to play some head games. Anything can happen and I am by no means an expert but I would be shocked to see Shaq not drafted in the first round. It's just not going to happen. I don't even see any way he'd fall all the way to us in the 1st round. I would love to have him. I've been telling a buddy all along that he plays and reminds me a ton of Charles Johnson but Shaq might have more quickness.
  4. I think Jeremy is hearing from everything that Josh will be tagged because that is exactly what Gettleman wants out there. There are two ways I can see his thinking going on this. 1 - Ideally, he's love to have Josh under a 3 or 4 year deal and will use the leverage of Josh's age and the franchise tag to get the best long term deal possible. If Josh wants to break the bank then there's no choice but to franchise him. 2 - Gettleman really does only want to franchise Josh for one year because he doesn't believe in paying conners big money long term. His approach to football is to put the bulk of your money in the d-line, into the Hog mollies. So, expect to see Short get a huge deal. I don't think he'll break the bank on a FA d-lineman but he wants to have that money available for when we need to sign Short, Star, Ealy and whomever other dlinemen he finds in the draft. As to RB, I'm not sold that the answer isn't already on the Roster. CAP and Wegher have shown great flashes and are only rookies. They were behind a probowl RB, a great short yardage and valued guy in Tolbert along with Fozzy who excelled at blocking. The fact that they never even tried to put Wegher on the practice squad tells me they see real future potential in him.
  5. I watched ever single second of the 1-15 season. I was pumped and defended Jimmy Clausen far longer than even the most loyal bandwagon fan. My friends house where we watch all of the games doesn't have a "living" room. It's the Panther room and is covered with all types of Panthers swag that everyone donates. Signed pics of players, posters, bobbleheads, etc. Somehow this year we started a thing where when a Panther players does something good we fist bumb and it's bad juju if you don't fist pump every single person in the room (usually 4-6 of us). So far this year I think I've fistbumped someone about 8,569 times. Every time you talk to anyone in the group at any time and are leaving, texting or hanging up the phone the conversation must end with "Go Panthers". No one ever made up any of our rules. They just happen and must never be broken. I found this out this year when I had a knee injury Sat night before the second Panther-Falcons game. Was in the ER til 6 the next morning. Ended up staying home and watching the game by myself. We lost. I have seriously wondered (against all logic) that it really is somehow my fault we are not undefeated. Go Panthers.
  6. Part of me wants to be cautious. But the bigger part says the Panthers are what we think they are. The defense is going to shut them down. Cam is going show NY what a real NFL QB looks like. Against the pass D Cam is going to break the record for TD's in a game. The only thing that can slow this team down is Ron Rivera. (Not that I would blame him for calling off the dogs) Our GM is from the Giants and is NY through and through but don't think for a minute he doesn't want to show up his old team. We're not rolling up to teams hoping we can hang on and beat them. We're taking mofo's to the woodshed and every team we play from here on out is invited. Did you see Ron going postal on his team during the Atlanta game. No more second guessing, no more letting up on teams, no more southern hospitality. We're like Sherman's army on a path to the sea, only we're taking the scenic route!

  9. No, he was not a reach based on Gettlemen's draft board. He was the best player available. No reason to make the draft harder than it has to be. You spend thousands of hours rating players and figuring out who fits your team best. A few weeks ago he was all over the draft board around our pick. He ran a slower 40 time at the combine and started to drop. There's a reason the Panthers always "rush" to put in their pick when it's there turn. We actually go by our draft board. The picks are already made, especially in the first round.
  10. How hard is it to understand that Gettleman is really serious about not reaching. Repeat after me Pete, "When you reach for a player of need you get burned.". It's like everyone ignores the words coming out of Gettleman's mouth.
  11. How the hell does he know? No one really knows yet. There is still a ton of research to be done. But I am going to go out on a limb here and say bashing your head hundreds of times isn't a good thing.
  12. We're not trading Luke. And there is zero chance the 49er's could even make a play for him. The article glosses over the fact that we'd use the 5th year option on him at the very least. You're not going to franchise a guy instead of using the 5th year option. Stupid article is stupid.
  13. Mr. Scot, stop playing with your food and land that KO punch. LOL.

    All any of you know is his 40 time and he wasn't a starter on the Packers. Gettlemen has stated again and again that you always need to be churning up the bottom of your roster. This is how we ended up with Fozzy. You keep turning over stones with some potential instead of staying with the same old stones waiting for something to happen. I love this about Gettlemen. This guy knows talent and if he sees something in the kid it's worth bringing him in to compete. He's a large target (which Cam loves) who runs good route. You never know.
  15. I can see how D-lo would be hurt but I don't know why Jerry may have not reached out. Wish he had but it doesn't change my opinion of the big cat based on numerous other stories about him doing a lot of good and caring things. Humans are human. I've always loved D-lo since I heard his interview the night we drafted him. He's always ran hard and been a great RB. My only gripe about the guy is the time he tried to explain on facebook why a million dollars isn't a lot of money after taxes and you pay your agent. Then buy a car and a house. After that there's not much left.
