  1. What they've done in two short years should be applauded. With Boyue back, there really isn't a huge weakness on the defensive side of the ball. We are fast, strong, young and athletic, while also deep enough that we can rotate folks in and out. If we re-sign DJ, we will be deep 1-3 (as well as Shi) at WR, set at HB and TE, and looks like QB is trending upward on a 23-year old top-3 drafted signal caller. I think this FA and draft we go full OL and K and walk into 2022 set up for long-term success. Like, if we snag a top OL in FA and grab another in Rounds 1 and 2, I wouldn't be against a K in the fourth or fifth round if there's a Janikowski-esque guy that comes along.
  2. Maybe should have drafted a kicker instead of a backup LS in the 6th.
  3. I really liked Forrest Lamp coming out in that draft year. If healthy, would be a nice upgrade at LG. The kicker that Baltimore just released would be great to have competition for camp heading into the season. A LB edition wouldn't be the worst idea, but I also think rolling Shaq-Carter-Reddick will be fine with how often we run a 2 backer scheme. I could see packages where Chinn or Franklin step down to be that third guy in a 3 safety set.
  4. Lots of former Panthers in there.....also noticed Cole Luke was tried at S. Classic Ron/Hurney magic still going on.
  5. It is odd that we are taking two tackles that have performed well in the past on certain sides (and not the other) and have flipped them this year to play the other side. Not saying it couldn't work or that you don't put your best T on the left....just curious why we don't want the round peg in the round hole.
  6. I am real excited for this kid. His size/speed/efficiency is scary good and he just turned 21 last week. After seeing how Jefferson tore up the league in his rookie year last year, I feel like Marshall is going to thrive here with minimal pressure given the surrounding cast.
  7. How has our DLine rotation look compared to past groups? Do you think they have the potential to eventually be a Peppers-Jenkins-Buckner or at least a CJ-Hardy-Star kind of havoc producing unit? Feels like they are going to wear teams down with relentless depth, speed and young hungry athletes pinning their ears back non-stop for 4 quarters. I’m also excited for Morgan Fox….but I was also psyched for Weatherly last year. Thoughts on Fox?
  8. We got Jake at 28, so let's say Darnold takes a year to get ramped up and hits his stride in 2022 at 24 years old. I wouldn't mind four additional years (younger years vs. older years) of a Delhomme-esque QB with the weapons we have around him.
  9. It's strange to me like there's no QBs coming out in 2022 and beyond. Yes, we passed on Fields but we have a plan to see if a 23-year old #3 overall pick could be the answer. He may or may not be. However, there will be QBs available to draft next year...and the year after that...and yup... the year after that. 2022: Howell Rattler Willis Slovis Riddler That's just pre-season guesses. Lots of other guys out there that could pull a Wilson/Burrow and move into the upper echelon next year.
  10. This is the correct answer, IMO. I do think at some point one of Daley, Brown or Moore takes over at guard later this season. I also hope the team takes a hard look at Moore as a backup C for Paradis. Not sure if he can be a true NFL center, but he did flex at the position at the Sr. Bowl in front of Rhule. Eventually, I could see a Christensen-Daley-Moore-Brown-Moton future OL
  11. Much rather play the Jets week one than week nine or ten.... they have a lot of speed with their rookies and adding a big target like Corey Davis will huge for Wilson. I also don't see Darnold tossing 4 TDs and us running 1 in against a Robert Saleh defense. Prediction: Darnold : 295 yards - 2 TD - 1 INT CMC : 140 total yards - 1 receiving, 1 rushing TD Robby : 7-95-1TD Defense feasts on Wilson and causes 4 turnovers. I see a pick-six or fumble recovery for a TD. Panthers win 31-19.
  13. A faster Kenny Golladay....I'll take it!
  14. Interesting....didn't Hooker visit Miami already? I wonder if one is the first shoe to drop in order for the 'Phins to get the guy I prefer we sign, Malik Hooker. Not against McCain, but he'll be 28 in August and would honestly prefer to save the money and ride Burris for now at FS while bringing Robinson along as the third safety. I think Chinn spends way more time at SS this year which will allow Burris to play better.
  15. Kyle Hamilton screams a Phil Snow player and could rival Chinn as that hybrid rover....his athleticism and build is off the charts. Linderbaum would be an ideal "less sexy" selection, but fills a glaring need once we let Paradis walk. Interested to see if Rhule tries UDFA Moore as a center backup this year and envision him as a potential center long-term. Agreed though.... C, FS, LB are my three biggest needs heading into the draft.
  16. If we are going to add a FA, I prefer Hooker. If we sign nobody else but him, I'll be stoked. I do think Burris is in a good position to thrive next to Chinn, not Boston, with the front 6 or 7 in front of him....and a true alpha CB1 in Horn. Our weakness at CB last year along with weak LB play, and an inconsistent Boston, exposed Burris more, IMO. I wouldn't mind letting Burris and Robinson battle it out for our FS, TBH. Burris is 27 and Robinson just turned 22....lots of untapped potential there. I truly do believe our future SAF duo is Robinson and Chinn.
  17. If we could somehow land Hooker and Leno, I think we are a vastly different team heading into next year. From top to bottom, I don't see a position that we didn't improve....except maybe at guard. Even then, I think two of Elflein, Miller, Erving, Daley, Brown and Moore can start.
  18. True class act. I read a story where he slept at a fellow players house on an air mattress bc he didn't know his future when he first arrived to Chicago. He welcomed the new guy with open arms and sent a nice shoutout to Chicago for giving him a chance. Sign him for Darnold and let Christensen learn behind a vet. Just not too long....Christensen will be 25 in September.
  19. Depending on if the Panthers want to thrust Christensen in as a starter right away or not.
  20. Nah, I'm good. I'm not looking for a 30 yr old veteran tackle. My comment was more about getting a 22-yr old center that looks like he eats nails and trains in Siberia.
  21. I like Tremble the player and think he is a Rhule kind of player, just not at that spot. I would've preferred Meinerz in that spot.....Let him play guard this year and then slide over to C after Paradis' contract is up. In theory, could've rolled with a future OL of Christensen-??-Meinerz-Brown-Moton Don't know if Tremble would have been there with our next selection and I certainly wouldn't undo the ridiculous trade we made with Houston. That 4th next year is tasty. I hope Tremble can get coached up a bit in the catch/route running game, but he brings everything else you're looking for in a soon-to-be 21-year old raw prospect. Happy he's here bc he does fill a void....just would've preferred a Meinerz.
