Matt Rhule “I thought Scott was masterful today”


 Share

Recommended Posts

Finally we have people in the organization that knows the value of multiple draft capital.  Couldn't have been happier.  Sure we could have landed a great tackle or linebacker with our original picks.  But we got players with good potential and able to lessen the draft capital we spent for Darnold.

 

 

Excited to see what we do today with all these picks.

I wonder how many fans hating on the draft the panthers had is entirely because they didnt take Fields.  I also wonder if those fans will change their tune if Sam doesn't well and/or Fields isnt the superstar they seem to think hes guaranteed to be.

If Sam does well I mean.

Just by looking at first round grades, the media keeps reiterating that Fields dropped to us and wasn’t drafted.   It is not just the fans, it’s basically everyone.

This whole regime is awful.

That was a terrible 2nd and 3rd round.

I  can't agree with you and I can't disagree with you.

Outside looking in you have to say we passed on some names that should have gotten attention. Inside looking out maybe they got players that were way, way, way undervalued.

We have a ton of late round picks, picks of people generally that aren't going to make it to the field and possibly not to the final roster. On the other hand, they could be saying it's time to say goodbye to any third or fourth year players that are just living on the special teams squad and bringing in new, cheaper, blood. 

We've got to trust in the process, I know. We've got to post better than 5-11, though, this too I know.

Don't underestimate this. Hurney and Gettleman would have not tolerated this much activity later in the evening.

What I like is they merge RAS scores with what they see on tape. This isn’t picking athletes just for the sake of being supremely athletic. They have to match that elite athleticism with quality football play.

    • Not really. Context is key. He was playing a lot on the outside at first--still very sparingly as a rookie. He got hurt on a fluke play (I believe his ankle) in the endzone. His second season he had what was likely an ablation procedure to fix an irregular heartbeat, but was still used sparingly. His third season he was involved a little more, but was still being used on gaget plays and such. After Rhule and Brady came in. Samuel hit his stride because he became a regular part of the offense and was involved seamlessly within the flow of the game. He was put into a position to succeed, so it's no surprise that his production increased as a receiver and an RB. Yeah, you can be cynical and say it was because it was a contract year, but I think it's because he always had it in him, and he actually had better coaches that maximized his skill set, who also understood what Samuel is and what he's not.  As to your point about paying him 10+ mil per year, that was never going to happen because we didn't have the money. I'm glad we got TMJ and Shi Smith, but not necessarily happy that we lost Samuel. The NFL is a business however, and it was time for Samuel to move on. We should be better for it (and he should too, but he is going back to Rivera and Scott Turner...).
    • How not to make a team. Hurt one of your own guys on the 1st day with pads.  WoW hope he is ok, he also missed last season with a injury
    • You can see the impact from the collision and Erving gets hucked by the far smaller man that doesn't have a head of steam behind him. Was he put of position and off balance? Yes. But he was also trying to shoulder through him and literally got blown up by a guy a 40 lbs heavier than half his weight. That's bad, bro. Greg Little bad.
