  1. For Carolina, the "big" names I expect to hit FA: Julius Peppers Thomas Davis Captain Munnerlyn Mike Adams Torrey Smith Eric Reid Plausible: Da'Norris Searcy Russ Cockrell Dontari Poe Unlikely but Possible: Darryl Williams Matt Kalil Shaq Thompson
  2. Cam Newton to sit out 2019?

    There's a few reasons I don't think this is happening; 1. In 2017 in the offseason, Cam underwent a debridement of the rotator cuff. It's fair to assume he re-injured the rotator, which never fully returns strength/function. I doubt resting solves this. 2. Cam will be 30 heading into 2019, and only signed through 2020. If Rivera/Hurney are fired after 2019, I find it hard to believe Cam isn't gone with them. 3. There's no way you can extend Newton after a year away from football with no knowledge of what he'll look like on the field. Cam went 16+ games after the debridement and looked fine. He re-injured the shoulder against Pittsburgh most likely, but the following game against Detroit was arguably the best of the season. 4. His throwing motion is problematic. He creates all his torque with his upper body, putting stress and pressure on an already injured shoulder. When we sent him to a QB camp pre-2015, he shined, and then regressed in 2016, much as Wentz did from 17-18. I'm not entirely sure either QB is fixable as far as their mechanical flaws.
  3. Eagles vs. Saints: Divisional Round

    Think it's time to run that double reverse pass from the 3rd TE to Foles.
  4. 4 Round mock: Team by team

    Honestly this is brutally awful for Carolina. A draft where we need to rebuild the defense and we come away with....an OT, a WR, a CB and a QB? What on earth? In such a strong class, I fully expect us to take at least two defensive linemen. Zero chance we invest a top-3 round pick in a WR. We've spent four top-2 round picks in the last five years there. QB is plausible but I feel pretty confident we wait until next year. See how Cam's shoulder is and make our choice then.
  5. Nick's Mock Draft - 2 Rounds w/ Write-ups

    I'd say less than zero chance the Panthers come out of the first two rounds without a pass rusher. Burns makes sense at 16.
  6. 2019 Offseason/Draft

    I really like the mid-round QBs this year, particularly Thorson. Wouldn't mind snagging one in the 2nd-3rd. Cam's shoulder is a huge question mark. Better to have a plan than not.
  7. Cam Newton to sit remainder of 2018

    Where do people get this? They aren't the same injury. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/profootballdoc/quarterbacks/sd-sp-pfd-andrew-luck-surgery-shoulder-throwing-camp-0616-story.html Luck's surgery had a much longer recovery time baseline. Cam's was much less severe surgery-wise. What's likely happened is Cam's shoulder was healthy at the start of 2017, but between constantly throwing using nothing but his upper body and putting all the torque and pressure on his already injured shoulder (and rotator cuffs once injured often re-injure again), and some of the hits to the shoulder he took (particularly Watt against Pittsburgh), his shoulder will likely require another surgery. There's a part of me that's deeply concerned he may just be done.
  8. Wasn't the same injury or surgery. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/profootballdoc/quarterbacks/sd-sp-pfd-andrew-luck-surgery-shoulder-throwing-camp-0616-story.html Rotator cuffs are scary as hell for QBs. Real possible his arm never gets full function back. Much like Delhomme's elbow, I think it's a very real possibility this injury could derail his career long-term.
  9. I mean...k? The worst weapon in the NFL joins the best offense.
  10. I remember spending several hours watching Kelvin play from recorded games at FSU, and not really understanding where the hype was. Sure, he's big, but...that's about it, really. Questionable hands, poor route runner, stiff, etc. I had him as a 2nd-3rd round guy. Honestly, I was disgusted when my team was stupid enough to select him over A-Rob. Broke my heart.
  11. Panthers @ Lions

    Second game this year Cam has had a wide open man in the end-zone at a critical moment in the game, and he folded. That's honestly really troubling.
  12. Moton isn't playing LT. Chris Clark is. Moton slid over to the right to replace Williams. Both have been tremendous.
  13. MNF: Steelers @ Buccaneers

    Every single time I watch a game with Chris Conte, I ask myself how the hell this guy still has a roster spot in the NFL.
  14. Preseason Week 1 GDT

    Ya'll are just torching Seymour. Yikes. Dude looks rough. If Benjamin had ever shown that much effort here we might not have traded that fat scrub rofl
  15. Man, not a fun topic. Armanti "The Mistake" Edwards - You traded a future 2nd for THAT!? Jimmy Clausen - I got the logic. It was hard to pass on him. Everette Brown - You traded a future 1st for THAT!? Kelvin Benjamin - Best WR class in over a decade and you came out with THAT!?
