it's a shame that we were so bad on special teams that we have to use all our cap space on players who at the least will make good special teams players.

I mean, that's the reality of some of these signings...there is a real possibility that some of these guys may never sniff the field if a football isn't being kicked.

...are we still paying the same ST coach?

Man.. Book is apparently out on this guy. Nevermind he's only 26 coming off a year of solid NFL production.

The guy now has a chance to come to town and compete for a role. In his mind he's going for starter.

Too bad we gave him all that Jake Long money. Y'all remember that. derp..

And if you wanted a different safety.. Don't forget about the draft and these udfas coming in. You better believe there will be some competition at the position. No reason not to at this point.

Agreed. I think a lot of us are just trying to talk ourselves into liking him. He really is nothing special. Bad in coverage and average tackler.

 

Nothing at all like Mike Mitchell who was a much better tackler and had way more recovery speed in coverage. Mitchell also brought swagger with his game that we wont get with Coleman. He can be a backup and special teams player but certainly isn't going to be as good as Mitchell. 

 

According to PFF, Mitchell missed 18 tackles in 2013 and that trend definitely continued into 2014. Mitchell was a decent safety, but he wasn't nearly as great as we all remember him being... I think that just goes to show how poorly Carolina's safeties have played in recent years.

A big thumbs up on the Kurt Coleman signing. I feel he is going to surprise a lot of people with some good performances at safety or special teams.

What I love about Gettlemen so far in his short time here is that he usually brings in free agents that fill holes on the team so he doesn't HAVE to draft a particular player in the draft.

 

I believe this is his plan and it allows him to go BPA no matter what.

And others are offering opinions of him based on his days in Philly.  They signed him based on the progress he made lately, so put his baby photo albums up.  People change.  He even said, "I feel that I am ready to start." which suggests that he has been a developmental project.

I think Taylor Mays would be a good pick up and he's still out there. We have room for him in the cap.

    • If they would have had the #5 pick then they could have had so many teams trying to trade up there for a QB. They'd be ahead of the Chargers and Dolphins who both need QB's. The Dolphins have 3 first round draft picks this year. That would have been such a good haul, potentially grabbing those picks had they won more games. They'd have to leapfrog several teams. Unfortunately at #7 both the chargers and the Dolphins don't need to move up. The only scenario i'd see is if they pick the QB's they need and the Dolphins pull the trigger on a OT to protect their QB, the Panthers would get the 18th and 26th, plus a lower round pick to move up to #7 if the draft board falls to where no OT was taken prior to the Panthers pick.      The thing is, that if the Panthers decide to stay with Cam, they need to protect his blind side and if the best OT is on the board, I don't think they would give up that pick for 2 first rounders. I wouldn't. Especially when it's the best tackle of the draft. I don't know.    IF they stay at the pick and Brown is available or Thomas...Take Thomas. 
    • Becton went 4th Ovr in Daniel jeremiahs last mock- I’m gonna go out on a limb and say he isn’t available in the third  
    • This has all been thoroughly debated examined and tested by people who are experts in the field. Noll is not one guy out on a limb. The bottom line is the consensus amongst respected experts is that sports stadiums do not provide the economic impact they claim to. https://research.stlouisfed.org/publications/page1-econ/2017-05-01/the-economics-of-subsidizing-sports-stadiums/ https://ritholtz.com/2017/07/economics-subsidizing-sports-stadiums/ That article was written by a member of the Federal Reserve. Surely he doesn't know what he's talking about when it comes to money and economic impact. Here are a few quotes from that article I would particularly draw to your attention:  "When surveyed, 86 percent of economists agreed that “local and state governments in the U.S. should eliminate subsidies to professional sports franchises.” "In a 2017 poll, 83 percent of the economists surveyed agreed that “Providing state and local subsidies to build stadiums for professional sports teams is likely to cost the relevant taxpayers more than any local economic benefits that are generated.” It's not that stadiums don't bring in any money, or have any economic impact, no one is arguing that. But the reality is that the numbers show that impact is less than the cost of the subsidies provided, by large margins. This is why the vast majority of economists say they should be discontinued. Your math about tickets is irrelevant because all of that revenue goes into the private owners pockets. The point is that fewer games means fewer times people are coming to the area and having that impact you are talking about. That's why more games has more impact. Ticket prices and sales are irrelevant because we're talking about the impact on the economy, not actual ticket sales. It's not about how many tickets are bought at what prices, it's about how many times people stay in hotels, eat in restaurants, etc etc etc. And the people who measure these things and look at the data far more than you or I say it's not close, stadiums are a bad deal for taxpayers as an economic investment. Bottom line, if a cardiologist tells you you'd better stop eating fried foods or you're not likely to last another five years, do you do what the highly trained expert says, or do you sit there and argue with him about whether the burgers you cook on the grill should count or not?
