Interview with James Bradberry

Recommended Posts



Good interview. Never knew much of this stuff.  I always liked Bradberry's class.

This is the second time I've seen him state how much he loves to play press yet the Panthers always had him lined up 8 yards off the LOS. I'll never understand that...

He basically called Allen a noodle arm.

Same here, but no matter who the DC has been, we always did it, makes me realize Rivera was always controlling that stuff. I feel like we could have had Patrick Peterson and still would have done the same poo

We would be running zone with Sanders and Revis on the team. We played a scared defense for way too long.

Maybe they felt if he did get beat in press coverage he lacked recovery speed.  He did note that people always doubted his speed.

Rivera rarely put his players in a position to succeed.  This is just more evidence of that

Yep. He's honestly one of the best press corners in the league and we had him playing off coverage the vast majority of the time.

I still don’t understand why we didn’t bite the bullet and resign him.

I'd rather have Bradberry at 3 years/$45M than Shaq at 4 years/$54M. I still think we re-signed the wrong guy and I don't understand why we made that call before we had a new coaching staff.

No more overpaid than Shaq. I'd rather be overpaying a CB than a non-pass rushing LB.

The only thing that makes any sense is they had at least a inkling that Luke was going to retire.
 

Being so late in the season I feel chain of events that happened we’re likely; -> 

Rivera was fired, it became obviously clear we weren’t going to be competitors anytime soon -> 

Luke was probably “I’m done with the panthers after the season” -> 

Shaq was probably “mhmmm free agency here I come get that big money” ->

Hurney goes into panic mode, gives Tepper the rationale sign Shaq now and can trade him after the season if needed ->

Shaq camps who I’m assuming had been putting feelers out mid/late in the season jumped on the opportunity to get a sizable contract from a panicked hurney. ->

Ends up with the 5th highest average contract at the position currently. Behind Wagner, Mosley, Jack & Jones. Which is listed as inside linebacker currently. If we go to 4-3 and he stays outside he will be the highest 4-3 outside LB.

I really don’t see us moving him to MLB either as we had brought him in to be the Thomas Davis replacement not the Luke replacement.
At least not if Rivera was still here. Can’t predict Rhules thinking as there is no professional “tape” on him.

He seems like a short and sweet kind of guy. I wouldn’t read into to much.

The Panthers are going to miss him. He is a solid corner. Reminded me of Chris Gamble.
