  1. Offseason Prediction

    Yes Stew and his #43 ranked in yards per carry needs to go. Patriots know how to win because they get rid of guys instead of being loyal. Nobody deserves anything in this league.
  2. Offseason Prediction

    So you want to keep Star over Norwell?
  3. Offseason Prediction

    I would be okay if we brought one of these guys in. Moncrief hands are not the greatest from what I remember. I do not think we are destroyed at WR like the "experts" say. Samuel has the ability to be a B+ WR in this league and Funchess is a B+ guy. Robinson or Lee would quickly boost that position and allow us to focus the draft on defense. We need to address all three units on the defense.
  4. Offseason Prediction

    I appreciate any comments. Positive or negative. If you notice anything incorrect let me know so I can adjust. I am going to update this as I go along. I have not yet included a Draft because it is WAY TOO premature. Ownership - ABD - Anyone But Diddy. I really have no opinion on who I would like to buy the team. That said, I have heard rumblings about possible new ownership moving the team outside of Charlotte. I do not think this is wise. I think the ACC would quickly remove their championship game from Bank of America. GM - Again, I cannot pretend to know the ends and outs of what it goes in to run a team. That said, I would not mind if we brought Marty Hurney back. Although I think new ownership might want a new face. Coaching - I was not a fan about the Norv Turner hiring, but what is done is done. Let's hope for the best. Looks like Steve Wilks is going to stay. I am not a huge fan of his either. Too much zones and untimely blitzing. I think his system needs a stronger secondary, which we are lacking. I was hoping the DA would retire and move into coaching for our team. It is still a possibility. Current Cap Space - According to Over the Cap we have $21,360,591 in cap space (middle of the pack) for 2018. I am not sure if this includes the 2018 season cap projection to rise to $178,000,000 or not. Cuts - Ryan Kalil - saves $7,500,000. Aging, injured, and just not worth that pay day. Jonathan Stewart - saves $3,750,000. See above. Russell Shepard - saves $2,150,000. Not reliable. The only plays I remember from him outside his week 1 touchdown were bad plays. Charles Johnson - saves $3,500,000. Thank you for your time, but no where near worth this money, and I do not even want to see him take a paycut. Right now he is worthless on the field. Wes Horton - saves $1,200,000. We will look to FA/Draft for more DE. Fozzy Whittaker - saves $1,150,000. Just not worth the $. Can find 100s of guys just like him. Kevon Seymour - saves $630,000. I mentioned him and Sanchez of the lesser guys because it is time to move on. Zack Sanchez - saves $555,000. See above. Maybe cut a few others, but this brings our cap to $39,395,591. Restructures - Just now learning more about this, but apparently we can only save so much on the cap by a restructure. These guys need to restructure. Matt Kalil - saves $345,000. Kurt Coleman - saves $1,342,500. I could see him actually being cut, but it would leave us too big a hole at a top hole. Captain Munnerlyn - saves $723,333. We save nothing by cutting so we have to restructure and cut next year. I am sure a view others will. Maybe Davis takes a paycut in his final year to work toward a Super Bowl. Saving $2,066,178. Gives us $41,461,769 to spend on our guys and FA. Resignings - Andrew Norwell - the #1 priority this offseason is extending Norwell. Turner received a 4 year $45,000,000 deal. I expect Norwell to ask for the same if not a pinch more. I would give him the same deal. Can load his up with All-Pro incentives since he has already reached that and makes sense. Julius Peppers - Final year for Pep. Him and Davis retire together. 1 year $3,500,000. $500,000 signing bonus. Kaelin Clay - 2 year/ $2,000,000. Damiere Byrd - 2 year/ $2,750,000. Tyler Larsen - 4 year / $17,500,000. Michael Palardy - 3 year / $6,500,000. Notable non-resignings: Gano, Star, Bersin, Anderson (thinking he might retire and move toward coaching). Spend about $25,000,000 towards next year's cap on our current roster resignings. Free Agent Targets - Right now I am just going to list some targets. I do not expect us to target anyone extreme. WR - Allen Robinson, down year + injured season could lead to a smaller deal. Terrelle Pryor, disappointing season could make for a steal. Paul Richardson, guy is a burner. S - Morgan Burnett, I will spend the money any pay a premier S. Eric Reid, affordable. Draft - TBA
  5. Norv Turner

    not thrilled either, but Wade Davis did a great job this year for LA. Let's hope for the best.
  6. Norv Turner

    looks like we have our new O/C ESPN thoughts?
  7. Playoffs/Offseason Thread

    you think Stewart is and would be fine based on what?
  8. Playoffs/Offseason Thread

    if not in house (which I dont see happening) what candidates usually take these jobs? college coaches? current succeeding qb coaches?
  9. Playoffs/Offseason Thread

    this is the best news i've heard all day. wonder who our targets are.
  10. 2018 Opponents Set

    I would say at least 2, if not 3, primetime games (please not a Thursday). 1. One divisional - likely NO or ATL. Please let it be at home. If its NO, prob a roadie, if ATL, prob a home. 2. Then I could see SEA, DAL, PHI, or PIT all (not all 4, but any) as a primetime game. I'd prefer our road game non-conference, if they give us a 1 and 1.
  11. Playoffs/Offseason Thread

    We played them better than I expected and we had opportunities to win. Our play calling is odd in the red zone... 1. I really think getting rid of Stew is the top priority and bringing in a rookie - via Round 2 or 3. Look at the RB class this past draft. Yes, I still believe we nailed our pick with C-Mc, but we need a more consistent running. I do not know why we insist on wasting 3 or 4 plays a game with a sweep to J-Stew. 2. Re-sign Norwell. I do not know if we will give him the money he wants, but we need to find a way. 3. RB, S, OL, WR, DE - in no particular order need to be addressed in FA and the draft. The year we went to the superbowl we were getting turnovers from our safeties. 4. We will not fire Shula, but I would love to see it.
  12. Andrew Norwell

    I really hope Norwell is back, but he will probably demand what Turner got, if not more because of his accolades. That said, I believe Ryan retires, and I would not like to see a huge hole in our offensive line when we have many other glaring needs. Re-signing him I see is a top 5 priority this offseason.
