  1. Who was below us when we were 28th? NYG and NYJ both added multiple first rounders in the draft. I can't understand anyone having ATL or HOU ranked above us. We should at least be 30th.
  2. We will inexplicably beat AZ. Weird things happen when we play them. Sea, NYG, and Pitt are all up in the air but none of those QBs scare you. All those teams are mentally counting our game as a W. I don't think six wins will be enough to save Rhule's job.
  3. I can't imagine think they will put that much stock into Sam looking good in shorts with no pass rush?
  4. 2018-2020 (did not include 2021). The articles came in last July so any update to include 2021 stats probably would come out around the same time (July 2022). Unfortuantely, Darnold has also had issues when he’s kept clean. According to Pro Football Focus, Darnold has the lowest passing grade (55.7) from a clean pocket since the 2018 season. Bridgewater ranked No. 32 in that stat last year, while Darnold ranked dead last at No. 39. Those predicting that Sam Darnold will provide a massive upgrade over Teddy Bridgewater in Carolina are in for a rude awakening. Bridgewater was hands down the better quarterback in 2020, outperforming Darnold in completion percentage (69.1% vs. 59.6%) and clean pocket passer rating (105.3 vs. 81.7). Darnold’s continued woes from a clean pocket — worst PFF passing grade since 2018 (55.7) — do not bode well for the Carolina offense to take a massive step forward, as a quarterback’s numbers from a clean pocket are a reliable predictor of future success. Even with talented wide receivers and perhaps the game's best pass-catching running back, this entire offense is a work in progress and its fantasy assets remain volatile. https://www.pff.com/news/fantasy-football-team-preview-carolina-panthers-breakouts-sleepers-busts https://pantherswire.usatoday.com/2021/07/19/panthers-sam-darnold-red-zone-clean-pocket-numbers-troubling/
  5. The line is perfect, but if we don't bring in a Jimmy G/Baker (which, to be clear, I don't want them to do), then I'd have to take the under.
  6. We already gave up our 2023 3rd round pick to get Corral. Let's not trade away are all draft picks again. Jimmy G/Baker might get you 7 to 9 wins. Then you have to decide if you want to sign them to an expensive long term extension, or let them walk for nothing, all without getting a good look at your rookie with game speed reps. The better course of action would be to get Corral on the field by Week 8, and see what the rook can do.
  7. I can't believe Gantt is putting this out there. You would think someone like him would have seen the advanced analytics on Darnold in a clean pocket (spoiler alert: they aren't good.)
  8. Matt Corral is Obi-Wan...
  9. “We want to have a really strong quarterback room,” Rhule told reporters on Friday during rookie minicamp, “so I don’t think we would say no to a veteran at this point.” “We’re happy with the group we have,” Fitterer said. “I never put an absolute on anything. [But] we came into this weekend with the intention of getting a quarterback, and that’s what we did. And we’re going to go with this group.” Taken from this blog: https://heavy.com/sports/cleveland-browns/panthers-baker-mayfield-trade-matt-corral/
  10. That about double the amount of wins that the sports books have us at right now.
  11. Ron also had Cam and Luke. Foxy had some great players, but I'm not sure he had ones like Cam and Luke. Rivera should have been able to do more, but didn't.
