Final Panthers Cuts

Recommended Posts

Stewart's health is not a given this year. 

 

We need backups who can carry the ball full time if need be. 

 

That is CAP and Wegher.

 

Fozzy and Todman should be in competition for that scat back role. 

Wegher is a lliability is pass block and we have Tolbert as a emergency back.  Jstew and CAP are your grinders and Fozzy is your change of pace.  If one gets injured Wegher will be on the PS to activate.

Eh, too much is made of that platitude. 

If they had a really great second punter would they keep him? Of course not. 

Mainly used as a phrase to keep the guys motivated. 

Oh, I think they mean it. And while they say they don't look at position quotas, it has to factor in somewhat.

Mind you, I do believe last year's experience of winding up so thin at running back that they had to sign guys off the street is still fresh in their minds and could influence these decisions.

If Wegher does stick on the 53, it might be at the expense of another position. I just don't buy that he should beat out Fozzy.

Here's to hoping we keep 4 RBs: J Stew, CAP, Wegher, and Todman.

That's my wish list if the RB list has to be four. I'd feel safer with 5.

 

and that 81 guy didnt look to bad for all the huddle talking so down on him. Him and Funch kinda play the same to me.

"all the huddle"? Really? Either your survey or your memory is a little too selective.

I'd guess he's referring to a lot of people being disappointed that we didn't trade for a bigger name.

You haven't watched any games have you. 

Yes I have but blocking scrubs and blocking starters are two different things.  Wegher is always the last back to get touches, why do you think that is?  I'm not saying he is bad, just not ready this year.  Fozzy is a complete back that can do almost anything. Todman and Wegher have there strengths but are not complete.

Fozzy is a third down scat back. Far from complete. 

Why do you think they brought in 3 more running backs this offseason, one of which is an upgraded Fozzy.

The same people telling me how great Deangelo still was over the past two seasons are now singing Fozzy praises. 

 

Emotions do that I guess. 

 

I like Fozzy. Would be fine keeping him provided better players are not cut because of it.

Unfortunately I just have to trust the decisions makers to make the right decisions because I have no idea who I'd pick. 

The choices are tougher than previous years, and we will be letting good players go.

This is what happens when you start building a better team.

Carolina likes last names that begin with B. First names, meh. Plus, Brandons only last here for so long.

It's that black cat.

Well there's also Tolbert, frankly we normally keep just 3 pure HB with Tolbert as a HB/FB. 

I'm thinking they could keep 5, but I'm just not sure where they make up for it. Webb? 5 receivers? Not sure.

Think it'd be a huge mistake to let Wegher go. He is the only back built for 20+ carries a game on this team - except for Stewart, but Stewart breaks down after 4-5 games.

We have to be honest here. Stewart will more than likely get hurt by the midpoint of the season. Wegher and CAP are the only backs that can take up his role. Every one else is a 3rd down, change of pace type running back.

We ppicked up one RB(Todman). DG is bpa in the draft so CAP was bpa and Wegher was a good development player. He'll man we picked a 2nd round WR, a FA WR,  and a UDFA WR but that does not mean KB sucks.  It's about depth. 

Like it or not Fozzy is better than Wegher and playing time shows.

We should be able to keep all the players we want. Not the other teams- just us.
