  1. I'm always optimistic this time of year. We've got over 80 days before football is played again. I'm going to be optimistic until they show reasons on the field for concern.

    The best thing about this upcoming season, at least early on, will be being back inside a packed out BoA screaming along with the other Panthers fans.

    Ian Thomas will have 800 yards and 8 tds.

    Assuming 50 - 60 receptions, that would have been good for TE4 last year in PPR leagues last year. I think your projection is wildly optimistic. He's going undrafted in almost all leagues so you can get him whenever you want.

    What is more likely:

    1)Darnold with a better oline, wrs, running back, OC and HC plays much better than Bridgewater....along with JC Horn improving our secondary substantially.


    2)The 4th QB chosen in the draft from Ohio State goes to the BEARS and balls out.

    If I had to pick, I say 1 is more likely.



    Still scouting the helmet and not the player. Okay...

    So Marty ran the draft? Signed all those deals. 

       So we are back to Hurney threw that contract at Rhule all signed before he saw any salary numbers? Or the cap guy you hired. That’s where we’re at correct?

    Specific to FAs, go back and watch the Panthers Confidential segment on Dan Arnold. You'll see Samir doing the taking with Scott Fitterer in the room. You know who isn't in the room? Matt Rhule.

    Jeremy Chinn has been meeting and working with the safety group, but says that he's comfortable playing anywhere.

    Rhule mentioned that Chin already knows the LB position so they are trying him at Safety in OTAs, but his final position is still TBD.

    I don’t know.  What was the line of the Lions game last year vs a normal Teddy game?

    That's going to depend much more on the opponent. What you need to see if the line moves after an injury report, and Teddy's knee was already in question so that was baked into the initial line.

    Noted that Rhule said "Sewell, because he's an LT" when he wrote his name on the board. He didn't throw in extra justification like that for the other names. Tells me they weren't in love with him but knew they had no choice if the top LT fell.

    Go back and listen to the video again. Rhule's says "because he's an Offensive lineman". He's doesn't say Tackle.

    PJ Walker is better than Grier.  That’s basically the PJ conversation at this point.  

    We're in trouble if either is starting (and given Sam's injury history, that's definitely within the range of outcomes). The betting line moves at least 5-7 points if Sam isn't the starter.

    I feel they most likely edited out any QB discussions at 8 (or moving up).

    Interesting at 6:11 of the vid when Rhule listed the players they liked, that FIELDS was NOT one of them.

    It's probable they edited out any QB discussion, but it's also clear from the clips surrounding the acquisition of Sam Darnold that they a) bought into the age thing and b) compared him to the QBs coming out in the draft. They are all in on Darnold. Let's hope that was the right decision.

    The other name you didn't see at all was Rashawn Slater...

    So that's why we didn't trade down from #8. A bunch of teams were calling us offering negative points!

    And that folks is how a real front office operates. I shudder to think how those conversations would’ve turned out if Hurney was fielding those calls.

    It makes me wonder if the Panthers had developed a reputation in the league for taking negative points trades under our previous management, and teams were testing the waters to see if Fitterer would be similar.

    Our TE room is still not great, but I'm also not sure that Joe Brady's offense really requires it.  In an LSU offense with 400 receptions, their TE's only caught about 60 balls all year.  I just don't think it's as important.  Still, I believe we've improved that room this offseason.  I would call them average.  Certainly not high end, but average.

    I think you're going to be pleasantly surprised by how good Dan Arnold is.
