  1. gotta agree with those saying Henning. if Chudzinski had stayed around longer then he might take it. the success he had in his seasons here had as much to do with the weapons at his disposal as anything else. it's a shame the team never really achieved that potent two tight end look again. not to mention still having Deangelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, Steve Smith, Mike Tolbert, and a veteran offensive line. I always appreciated his feel for incorporating gadget and trick plays, though. but Henning did more with less, and his offense was one of the few offenses in Panthers history that carried the team at times. you always felt like the team had a chance, even when it came to erasing deficits. and having the ability to build a viable running game no matter who was toting the rock was something I think I took for granted at the time. Brady just isn't in their class at this point. whatever advantage he might have in play design (dubious IMO, especially compared to Chudzinski who basically wrote the playbook that Shula used in 2015) is offset by the lack of feel he has shown for getting weapons involved. he could grow into the best OC the Panthers have had, but reading the tea leaves, he might be gone before that gets a chance to happen.
  2. man, the comp pick rules have got to be the most convoluted, confusing thing in the whole NFL landscape. wtf.
  3. bingo. the pick given is a 2023 pick, which just happens to be the same year the Panthers would get a comp pick for Gilmore if he doesn't re-sign this offseason. and yeah, I'd probably put money on that comp pick being higher than a 6th. of course this is dependent on other FA moves the team might make after this year.
  4. it's not win now mode, it's win mode
  5. lmao. that is a pittance to trade for a former DPOY.
  6. it's always a good idea to get early pickings on premium talent languishing on sinking ships. which is exactly what appears to have happened with CJ Henderson.
  7. re: plans with #26 going forward guys I don't think Donte Jackson is a "just throw him in the slot and he'll be great" guy. he's super fast but he's not an agile, two-way twitchiness type of player. he's a premium, explosive athlete but you have to be able to handle the shake and bake in the slot. that's just not his game. if you want the best version of Donte Jackson, you're probably going to be playing him on the boundary.
  8. just to flesh out an earlier point I made in this thread (lost in the insane activity of posts in here, wheee) calling this a great trade or great asset management is not the same thing as saying it's 100% going to work out in the Panthers favor. Henderson could not work out and this is still a great trade because the process and decision-making around the trade is sound. it's the kind of decision-making that perennially great teams make, and I'm totally here for it.
  9. even if it doesn't quite pan out and CJ Henderson tops out as an average type CB, this is the kind of trade that can build a defense that can withstand losses to injury and whatnot. took advantage of a team in a tough spot with their young player, and got a cornerback who has started every game he's played in two years, with supreme physical traits, and to do that cashed in a bit of draft pick capital, and a player at a position of surplus coming out of camp. that's very very solid asset management.
  10. the answer is o̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶r̶o̶s̶t̶e̶r̶ "player acquisition"
  11. damn. CJ Henderson is a big-time acquisition, for it to be an in-season trade. you just have to know that Fitterer/Rhule loved him coming out. hard not to speculate what this could potentially mean for Donte Jackson.
  12. this isn't a huge reveal or anything, since if it was a significant strain there's no way in hell that he would have been jogging to the sideline after the injury. but it's still welcome news and welcome clarity on what he's dealing with. thanks for posting
  13. it's hard to agree to this hypothetical, to be honest. you'd have to know that a particular kicker was available. and really, there's only a handful of kickers who would be worth that kind of compensation. it's too easy to get replacement level production by scouring the waiver wire and plucking off practice squads like the Panthers have been doing.
  14. Aaron Parker sounds a lot like Terrace Marshall Jr. in his playing style. big receiver, played a lot in the slot with good success, solid on contested catches and in the red zone at Rhode Island, and has the speed to get YAC.
