  1. Agree but I’d also add Tepper was somehow convinced that all we needed was a QB to get us over the hump. They badly underestimated that lack of talent on offense last year.
  2. The clips in this episode don’t appear to focus as much attention the Teppers as in past years. And that’s to be expected. But it isn’t realistic to expect a micromanager like Tepper to take himself out of the picture, or for Dan Morgan to not keep him engaged in the process. He is the owner, as much as we hate to admit it, and the man that hired him.
  3. Another source: NFL Rumors: Hakeem Butler to Visit Panthers After UFL Success, Wade Phillips' Praise ZACH BACHAR JUNE 10, 2024 The Carolina Panthers are expected to conduct a workout with UFL wide receiver Hakeem Butler, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Butler recorded a league-leading 652 receiving yards as a member of the St. Louis Battlehawks. He was previously a fourth-round draft pick by the Arizona Cardinals in 2019. After the Battlehawks were defeated by the San Antonio Brahmas in the XFL Conference title game, Brahmas head coach and longtime NFL coach Wade Phillips told the receiver that "I'm going to tell everybody in the NFL that I talk to that you need to be playing," via Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk. Despite the loss by St. Louis, Butler still hauled in six receptions for a team-high 59 receiving yards. The 28-year-old was named the 2024 UFL Offensive Player of the Year, as he was one of only two wideouts to have multiple games with at least 100 receiving yards. While the Panthers added Diontae Johnson and first-round rookie Xavier Legette to their wide receiver room in the offseason, they could still use some depth in the form of Butler. Carolina isn't opposed to picking up former UFL players, as Rapoport revealed on Thursday that the team is also "expected" to sign All-UFL receiver Daewood Davis. Although Butler was selected by the Cardinals in the 2019 draft, he did not play as a rookie due to a hand injury and only appeared in two regular-season games as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2020. He did not record a catch. Butler signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers during the 2023 offseason, although he ultimately didn't make the team's regular-season roster. At 6'5", he has the frame to potentially make an impact in training camp and earn a shot at making Carolina's 53-man roster. If his workout goes well with the Panthers, Butler could give himself another chance to possibly return to the NFL.
  4. Carolina Panthers to work out UFL's Offensive Player of the Year Hakeem Butler by:Nikki Chavanelle•about 2 hours Steven Bisig/USA TODAY Sports The Carolina Panthers are expected to host the UFL’s Offensive Player of the Year Hakeem Butler before wrapping up minicamp, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport. Butler is coming off of an impressive season with the St. Louis BattleHawks during which he posted 45 catches for a league-best 652 receiving yards and five touchdowns. He earned the OPOY award and a spot on the all-league team as well. Last year, Butler had 51 receptions for 599 yards and eight touchdowns for the BattleHawks. The team released him, freeing him up to sign on to the Pittsburgh Steelers practice squad. Butler was a fourth-round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft out of Iowa State. He spent his rookie year with the Arizona Cardinals but broke his hand leading to his release before the 2020 season. He then signed for the 2020 campaign with the Carolina Panthers practice squad. It was a short-lived stint, however, as he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles days later.
  5. Not a good sign for Eddy P returning next season.
  6. It wouldn’t be a stretch to conclude that Tepper, Fitterer and the rest of the FO had the same idea last year. At least we ditched that flawed approach and appear to be heading in the right direction.
  7. A HOF QB would’ve struggled mightily with the sh—-show we had on offense last year. We can only hope that nightmare of a season won’t permanently kill his confidence. I do believe the kid will be a good player for us.
  8. Must be a Cowboys’ fan. Eat your heart out, Jerry Jones!!!
  9. Yeah people seem to go too far with the David Tepper hate. The real story is actually quite funny.
  10. According to the Bleacher, the 2025 NFL draft is deep @ OT, CB and Edge Rusher. Depending on how our season goes, we’ll have opportunities to upgrade significantly at these positions next year. https://syndication.bleacherreport.com/amp/10118514-2025-nfl-mock-draft-brs-way-too-early-predictions.amp.html
  11. No surprises here. This was likely a good business decision despite Horn’s health concerns. He’s a really good player if he can ever stay on the field.
  12. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/40014492/reggie-bush-heisman-trophy-returned Sorry for the typo in the subject line. Not Panthers-related but sports newsworthy.
  13. Would love to see us go with an alternate blue helmet and uniform. Then we’d be set. The Broncos new uni’s are meh but the Texans new threads are terrible IMO. The black uni’s are too similar to the Falcons. They would’ve done well to stick to or create some variation of the red alternates.
