  1. I think that's what they've been focusing on with Bryce's footwork and mechanics, planting that back foot is key if he's going to make NFL throws consistently.
  2. I have very low expectations and pretty much expect that we'll be looking at another QB in 2025. That said, I will give Bryce the benefit of the doubt and will root hard for him to succeed this year.
  3. Can we just pretend he doesn't exist
  4. I took it as a positive that he trusts Dan and stays in his lane. Sign of maturity and confidence
  5. Yeah I didn’t like that
  6. That is extremely concerning - he should be lifting up his team, not the other way around.
  7. From the first episode of the blueprint, Canales seems obsessive about the +/- turnover margin. I'm afraid it won't bode well for Bryce being more aggressive with the football.
  8. Nah, he’s got plenty but when you’re playing slow in your mind you look slow on the field. You have to be decisive and not hesitate
  9. Why not sign this guy as third stringer and let him develop.
  10. It couldn’t have helped. He should’ve used his mechanics better and save the cannon arm for when you really need it. I remember in 2013 -2014 being frustrated with Cam for throwing it too hard on easy short completions. We were spoiled
  11. But his arm wasn't destroyed due to his throwing motion, it was from essentially two hits / injuries. Tackle to prevent a pick 6 due to a lazy Benjamin route in 2016. That was the start of having to be on a pitch count in practice. 2018 TJ Watt hit after Cam had already adjusted his mechanics and was having his best year statistically speaking, although I remember even that year questioning if he can still sling it deep.
  12. Arm elasticity and arm strength are not the same thing. There are some who have great arm strength but can't deliver off platform throws, sidearm, etc, due to lack of elasticity. I am concerned about Bryce's arm strength to deliver the ball when the anticipation throws aren't there and you simply need to fire a ball into a tight window. Not sure that can ever be part of this game. He does have good arm elasticity which is what made him special in college, throwing the ball on the move, that should serve him well in the NFL especially when he gets outside of the pocket. My biggest concern is standing in the pocket, pressure in the face and not being able to set his feet will affect him more than others due to his height and arm strength.
  13. Nobody has ever doubted Darnold's physical attributes or work ethic in practice. He can sling it. But at this point, his mental make up is what it is. He will never have the composure to deal with pressure and stay composed. He is a good back up in the NFL, that's all.
  14. At this point, the franchise is almost unrecognizable. We had so much pride in the Panthers even when we had the worst record in 2001, 2010. Tepper has kind of taken the soul out of this team, its identity. For all his faults, Jerry Richardson was respected, instilled a certain kind of identity of pride, toughness, resilience, etc. The "keep pounding" identity has become just a saying now, we'll see if Dan Morgan and Dave Canales can truly bring it back in spite of Tepper being a terrible owner
  15. Wasn't Stroud reported to be struggling last year in OTAs or preseason? these types of reports are dumb I would rather have a gamer than a practice warrior That said, I think Caleb is overrated and he went to a franchise that is notorious for QBs busting
  16. Jonathan Brooks is the modern NFL prototypical RB. He'll be better than JStew
  17. I loved jStew but let’s not forget he was almost always held out from practice due to some nagging injuries
  18. He talks way too much about his time in Seattle and Russell Wilson and how they built that team in 2012. I won’t fall for any of it until I see them play for a year
  19. I would love to see this. It will all depend if Bryce Young can look like a franchise QB. He may just surprise us. If not, I don't see us winning more than 5 games.
  20. Week 1: Sept. 8 at New Orleans (L) Saints away is always tough even when we're the better team. Saints win Week 2: Sept 15 vs. Los Angeles Chargers (L) Jim Harbaugh, Justin Herbert - enough said. Week 3: Sept 22 at Las Vegas (maybe?) Gardner Minshew doesn't scare me but the Raiders defense should be good. I'm 50/50 on this one Week 4: Sept. 29 vs. Cincinnati (L) No chance against Burrow and Chase Week 5: Oct. 6 at Chicago (W) This better be a win, I think Caleb Williams will be a bust Week 6: Oct. 13 vs. Atlanta (L) Falcons will be the best team in the division and will sweep us Week 7: Oct. 20 at Washington (W) I'll pencil in a win against Washington with a new (old) coach and new QB Week 8: Oct. 27 at Denver (L) If this was at home I would choose us, but I don't see us winning at Mile High Week 9: Nov. 3 vs. New Orleans (W) This should be a close game at home. Hopefully the team starts to gel a bit more and we pull off a W. Week 10: Nov. 10 vs. N.Y. Giants (Munich, Germany) (L) Giants don't scare me, except maybe Burns in this game. I think we lose a close one Week 11: Nov. 17 BYE Week 12: Nov. 24 vs. Kansas City (L) We'll get crushed Week 13: Dec. 1 vs. Tampa Bay (W) Team plays inspired football to help Canales beat his old team Week 14: Dec 8 at Philadelphia (L) no chance Week 15: Dec: 15 vs. Dallas (L) this will be a home game for Dallas Week 16: Dec. 22 vs. Arizona (W) we always do well against Arizona Week 17: Dec. 29 at Tampa Bay (L) revenge game for TB who will be playing for division title Week 18: Jan. 4 or 5 at Atlanta (L) Falcons win the division
  21. Most oddsmakers have Panthers over/under at 4.5 which makes a lot more sense
  22. and the same one who said Zach Wilson should have been the #1 pick. i can't argue really with some of his points, Bryce does have a lot to prove that his game can translate to the NFL, especially when it comes to making NFL throws consistently
  23. this! i knew we were in trouble last preseason when i saw that offensive line. most on here called me a crybaby
  24. It can't be worse, we hit bottom last year and only way is to go up. How much better? 2 wins -> 4 wins? or can they actually win 7-8 games? I don't think the latter is happening
