PFF says the Panthers have the 31st ranked OL corp in the NFL this year

Again, Arnold’s making $3M a year which is more than Thomas. You can’t just look at year 1 base salaries as the team is trying to minimize cap hits. Also, Thomas is getting almost $2M in CBA achievements. That salty isn’t his 4th round rookie deal. I’d say betting money is that the Panthers will save $2M and get rid of Thomas.

Too bad you didn’t read it, maybe we’d be done. You now are talking about Rivera and vets? They just took the likely starters dude. The same likely starters that we had a thread on in here that most people agreed with and contract is something we can use.

You didn’t really read @kungfoodude’s post. He said the exact same thing as me. You interpreted two of words as if he said they should be ranked higher. His opening statement is: I think we are a safe bet to rate very lowly before the season. We made some ho-hum signings in free agency and then we added predominately lower rated and lower drafted prospects.

That’s not what you are interpreting. You took two words when he basically said what I did that it’s not surprising we are ranked so low. We didn’t add anything to the starters and again PFF isn’t coming up with new calculations they are just using last year’s actual grades and probably dinging us a bit for having 3 new starters which isn’t usually a good thing. 

SMH, they are using last year’s PFF rankings for the likely starters and maybe adding some special sauce like deducting points because there are 3 new starters. Even though panties are getting wadded already, it’s a preseason ranking not a what’s your gut feel or how did they look in preseason.

 

You just hate it when folks don't bend to your way of thinking don't ya?

 

Ya I know. Stay out of it. Gotcha.

 So that puts you squarely in tier 2. The wait and see crowd. lol

 

It's easier that way. You get to watch the 1s, and 3s duke it out. And just enjoy the Huddle for what it is. Entertainment.

 

Myself? I'm a 3. A cockeyed optimist. 1+2=3.

This isn’t about 1s and 3s this is people who feel disrespected about a preseason ranking based on a web sites grading system. It means nothing and has no impact on how good (or bad) the OL will be. It’s not a wild guess. The thread in here before prett much had consensus that our current starting OL was Erving, Elflein, Paradis, Miller and Moton with possibilities of rookies stepping up or even guys like Daley and Scott if Erving and Elflein suck balls. That’s it and based on the 2020 rankings we’ve got Moton and 4 really meh OL.

Yep, that’s it. Anything to add or just don’t like when people enjoy discussing stuff?

There are just to many wrong points in there.  Done going back and forth with you.  At some point the Panthers will post the depth chart and one of us will be wrong.  In the mean time....

Not sure if you have surfed this place recently but the sunshine squad is throwing hissy fits at just about any inkling of criticism or thought process that doesn't include everyone on the roster as an All Pro.

You know, standard extremist thought in the modern age? One of these fuging idiots last night kept repeating some poo like "never give up, fight the good fight" or some such drivel.

Remember when you could just debate competing points and not have people lose their minds?

Yep. Crazy. Your friend above is now bothering me too. Always love that.

Did you read  his post.   Some are underachieving and some are UNDERATED.

The pff score is a wildly inaccurate guess in a spreadsheet.  They don't even know who to grade or how to rate the rookies.  At this point it has no bearing in reality.

 

I did literally say what he said, FWIW.

Any preseason rankings are wildly inaccurate guesses....that's what preseason ratings are. 

Usually people only lose their minds about it when they just don't want to hear it.

Ranking us last is not at all unreasonable. By all their metrics ranking the players they have rated, we probably are last. I would ABSOLUTELY place us firmly in the bottom 10 units in the NFL at this juncture, albeit maybe not last. 

How could you possibly rate us highly given the massive questions along the line? No reasonable person should assume the signings we made and draft picks we have would make us a good offensive line. 

They have to go out and PROVE that to be wrong. I thought everyone was relatively on the same page with that opinion, TBH.

Our QB and OL situation are completely up in the air. Those two groups will likely be the biggest factors in our success or failure this coming season.

I have lots of content. Try reading some. It is actually quite entertaining. And I don't have to write a novelette every time just to prove a point. But hey, that's just the way I roll.

Oh you should look at that dolts history recently.

I think he might have been the one that was saying crazy, drunk poo last night. I can't keep them all straight. I just assume it is one group of alts since they parrot the same nonsense in every thread.

Lol. You quoted me first and I’ve shown you where you were wrong. You haven’t shown me a single thing that I said that was wrong. I’m just fine because I’m not making stuff up. That is a good tactic you can use when you know Johnny beat you. Just put the golden fiddle down and walk away!

Uhh, you are literally using literally wrong there.

Yours was more balanced, calling players underrated as well as some underachieving.

PFF was going to rate us low, I agree with that, that doesn't mean its right.

But here's the point, do you believe our oline where it stands today is the 2nd worst in the league?

You gotta love the gifted ones. They always dismiss you when they finish insulting you. Bless their hearts.

 

They just can't stand it when you don't bend to their will. Damm entertaining when you get them going. lol

Uh...no, I literally said the same thing. You just liked the way I said it better because it had a little hope sprinkled in. 

Do I believe we are second to last? Very possibly. I would say as we sit here today, easily bottom 10 with a strong case for bottom 5. 

The thing is, there isn't a great case to be made based on history for this group to be better than last year. Especially without Okung. 

The free agent signings/acquisitions are not better on paper than what we acquired last year. Frankly, those largely didn't work out. 

The draft picks we acquired are from a range in the draft where they are statistically less likely to very unlikely to be impact players for us as starters.

Does that mean any of them couldn't defy those odds and be good or even great? Of course not. It is not something I would bet any substantial money on because we are counting largely on outliers being successful. That isn't how I like my odds.
