  1. 2019 Panthers Off-Season Thread

    Team officially hired Phil Snow as DC. Baylor's DL coach is headed over as an assistant DL coach and we are hiring the Colts' DL coach for the same position. We also hired a guy from the Steelers, Samir Suleiman, to be our 'capologist.' Maybe we can lure Brandon Hunt away from them too!!!
  2. 2019 Panthers Off-Season Thread

    I lied about Joe Brady sticking with LSU. Hope he works out. We hired Frisman Jackson to be our WR coach. Worked under Rhule at Baylor and Temple though he was the Titans' WR coach in 2017 during Corey Davis' rookie season. Also worked with Taywan Taylor, Eric Decker, and Rishard Matthews (their leading wideout) that season. He also played with the Browns and Jets from 2002-07. We are supposedly hiring Eric Cooper to be our CB/DB coach. He did the same under Rhule at Baylor and Temple... sensing a pattern here. Phil Snow, DC for Rhule at Temple and Baylor, is expected to be named DC soon. Baylor is making their transition from Rhule to LSU's DC at the moment and once their staff is figured out, I'm sure we'll start bringing over even more guys from there. We interviewed Mike McCoy, Scott Linehan, and Ben McAdoo for, presumably, the QB coach/Asst HC gig. McAdoo it sounds like is more likely to go to the Jaguars to be an OC. McAdoo was the Packers TE and QB coach before heading over to the Giants as OC and eventually HC. McCoy was on our staff as QB coach with Delhomme was here. Pat Flaherty finally did his interview today according to twitter. We also hired Al Holcomb as a run defense coordinator. He was formerly our LB coach for several years. Also, not sure if you guys saw this news, but Luke Kuechly retired. Pretty bummed. Some are speculating the Holcomb hire is to try and lure Luke into coaching for us, since he apparently loved the guy.
  3. I would put Matt Paradis out there for the Panthers. The drop-off between him a random can't be that big and we'd save a ton of money. Dontari Poe and Jarius Wright are solid picks as well, as both are bad and being paid too much.
  4. What team will Cam Newton he traded to?

    Colts would be a solid destination for him. Will be sad to see him go but if we are doing a rebuild we need to dump him, Olsen, and CMC as soon as possible and try to get the firepower to get Burrow or Lawrence next season.
  5. Matt Rhule to become Carolina Panthers next Head Coach

    Panthers media dropping hints that Joe Brady is gonna be OC. Shares an agent with Rhule. Might be looking for Tepper's deep pockets.

    Joe Brady is sticking with LSU. With Brady and Wade not the exciting staff that was teased, not sure what else there is to expect.... Rhule interviewed Chase Blackburn about returning as ST coordinator. He also interviewed Kevin Gilbride and Pat Flaherty for positions. The were TE and OL coaches, respectively, when Rhule was the assistant OL coach for the Giants in 2012.

    He also worked for Sandusky's foundation that he met children through for a year. Rhule even mentioned playing "under the great coach Joe Paterno" in his presser and I cringed so unbelievably hard. I have awful, awful feelings about this hire. This is about as demoralizing as firing Gettleman so that we could re-hire Marty Hurney. I might just quit being a fan and pivot to watching the MLB or NBA.

    Yeah... I didn't say it was a good hire or that Tepper was a good businessman.

    Well we got Matt Rhule... 7 years for $60m. Can escalate to $70m. Also spent $6m to buy him out from Baylor. We promised him a "sports science department" which I guess focuses on healing the guys up quickly and preparing them for game. Dunno much about it. I'm assuming we'll get some explainer articles in the near future. Bill Voth teasing exciting staff hires on twitter. I can't think of any exciting staff hires except for... Wade Phillips? Maybe he could make our 3-4 good? That'd be pretty wild. Not getting my hopes up for it. There are several articles saying he wants his DC to be Phil Snow, who was his DC in Temple and Baylor. Rumored OC is Sean Ryan, current QB coach for the Lions. Formerly QB coach for the Texans (Deshaun's rookie year) and was a coach for the Giants from 07-12, mostly as a QB or WR coach (including Odell's rookie season). I guess those wouldn't be awful hires. John Matsko and Scott Turner are following Rivera to the Slurs. Along with our trainer dude, Ryan Vermillion, who I've always thought sucked.

    Okay. I don't know what this has to do with Tepper being able and willing to outspend the Mara's.
  11. Matt Rhule to become Carolina Panthers next Head Coach

    Bigger market but Tepper is the richest owner in the NFL.
  12. Matt Rhule to become Carolina Panthers next Head Coach

    $6m. So a seven year deal that costs at least $66m. No idea how to feel about this. Hope the staff he assembles is good. Rumors are he will bring his DC from Temple/Baylor along and that he wants Sean Ryan as OC (Lions QB coach, coached Deshaun his rookie season, was with Giants from 07-12 as QB/WR coach). But now our media team is teasing 'surprise' staff hires. I'd freak if we got First Year Wade Phillips.
  13. I'd die if we took Herbert. Especially with Okudah, Jackson, Delpit, and Jeudy there.
  14. I could live with Okudah and grabbing another OT in the 2nd because Greg Little kept getting hurt and we can't seem to solve the position, ever. An off-ball LB in the 3rd would be a major head-scratcher with Luke and Shaq both being awesome. Would probably go with a DL/EDGE or WR, where we have pretty much no depth or no one signed for next season.
  15. Trading Cam Newton for a 3rd, a future 2nd, and Philip Rivers and then taking another LSU CB at 7 to replace Bradberry would be a vomit-inducing off-season for Panthers fans.
