  1. Mock Draft 2020 1.0

    well CMC hasn't had a single missed practice due to soreness or injury in two seasons of getting a large workload. the team will probably be looking for front seven help (gerald mccoy, dontari poe, mario addison, bruce irvin, vernon butler, shaq thompson are all FAs this offseason iirc), secondary help (tre boston on a one year deal, no nickel corner has separated themselves, no depth at outside corner), WR help (dj moore and curtis samuel are breakout candidates but after that we have a bunch of vets who only play the slot), TE help (olsen is getting up there and ian thomas is pretty raw), anyway you get the idea. the team has no depth at all whatsoever since losing dave gettleman and re-hiring that colossal moron marty hurney.
  2. Mock Draft 2020 1.0

    why on god's green earth would the panthers take a RB? unless CMC dies or retires there is no way that is happening i think pretty much any position is possible except for RB for carolina... QB is probably also v unlikely, at least if cam's shoulder is healed
  3. If you put up a ton of points against everyone you play, that tends to lower the defensive rankings of your opponents, tbh!
  4. How are those rookies doing?

    EDGE Brian Burns - had 2 sacks in 10 snaps in his first game, albeit against Chicago's backups. Has pretty good bend. Tweaked his ankle last week and was limited in last night's game, but had a pressure or two. I anticipate he will have more snaps than current starter Bruce Irvin by the end of the season. Can't believe he lasted until pick 16. OT Greg Little - Been practicing and playing with 2nd teamers. Been mediocre to bad from what I've seen. Could take over LT next season when Daryl Williams presumably leaves. QB Will Grier - Awful. Stares down receivers. Overthrows a lot. Two picks including an egregious pick six. EDGE Christian Miller - Not looking good. Probably not getting a jersey all season unless there's an injury. Did manage a sack last night though. OL Dennis Daley - Has surprised coaches and getting majority of work at LG with 2nd teamers. Rivera seemed to hint that he could be a future starter at there once he gets a little more acclimated to the position, as he was an LT throughout college. WR Terry Godwin - Had some good punt returns in first preseason game. Bad QB play has prevented him from getting any good WR action. Slim chance of making roster as returner. Probably headed to the practice squad. RB Jordan Scarlett - Has been injured most of camp but finally got some action in game two. Looked really good. Should make roster fairly easily.
  5. Daniel Jones is looking better than Haskin

    It's almost as if Dave Gettleman knows what he's doing. And that the Slurs, a team that has not been consistently competitive since I started watching football nearly twenty years ago, have no idea what they are doing.
  6. Impressions - Preseason Game 1

    Was not a fan of the Will Grier pick and will continue to not be a fan. That interception was the worst pick I've seen a Panther QB throw in awhile. At least when Cam throws stupid picks it's when he's about to get sacked and he chucks it. Grier had a clean pocket and just had an awful, AWFUL pass. Kyle Allen was bad too. And it wasn't like guys weren't open. The throws were just totally off the mark. Wish someone were there to be accurate to give the wideouts a better chance to get into a groove. I'll give a pass to the first string defense for having Josh Allen picking them apart. The dinking and dunking is because our pass rush is pretty fast and we didn't have Luke or Shaq to help out in coverage or to make clean tackles. Noticed we had a lot of missed ones out there... The RBs at least looked good. Especially Jordan Scarlett. Reggie Bonnafon had some nice runs, though a lot of his bigger rushes were on draws on 3rd and long... No injuries is a big plus. And so is that new kicker. Maybe we'll keep him instead of Gano or use him as trade bait.
  7. Former Panther C Ryan Kalil signs with Jets

    I can't imagine it was much fun ending your career snapping to Garrett Gilbert.
  8. 8-8 sounds about right for the Panthers, but three corrections: 1. Ross Cockrell broke his leg last year, not two weeks ago, and is slated to compete for a job. 2. After the selection of Greg Little, Greg Van Roten is gonna be headed to the bench. The team will see who works best between Daryl Williams and Taylor Moton at LG and RT. So it'd be Little - Williams/Moton - Paradis - Turner - Moton/Williams. 3. This isn't as big of a deal really, but last year's DC, Eric Washington, won't be calling plays. Rivera will. He'll be more of an assistant and possibly help out at his former job, coaching the DLine. Rivera called the last three or four games, iirc. Hopefully we miss the playoffs and we finally fire Marty Hurney. God I hate that idiot. #BringBackGOATtleman
  9. Chiefs extend K Harrison Butker (5 year, $20M)

    Drafted by awesome GM Dave Gettleman. Cut by terrible GM Marty Hurney.
  10. Panthers QB Cam Newton - 3 TE Greg Olsen - 3 OG Trai Turner - 4 DL KK Short - 2 DL Dontari Poe - 2 DL Gerald McCoy - 6 LB Luke Kuechly - 6 S Eric Reid - 1 I.... don't think there are any others? 8 players, 27 Pro Bowls
  11. Julio Jones on the Panthers would be nice. Runner up would probably be Cam Jordan.
  12. Best players to overcome bad odds

    Going to homer it up in here: Thomas Davis returned from tearing the same ACL three times to become an elite LB. Not really what you're asking but I'm gonna mention it anyway since he is, as far as I know, the only athlete to do this... though I want to say Terrell Thomas did it too but didn't have a good career after it. 2015 Cam Newton had a bunch of garbage around him outside of Olsen, a sometimes injured J-Stew, Ryan Kalil, and Trai Turner. Dude put up 45 TDs. His WRs were Philly Brown, Jerricho Cotchery, Devin Funchess, and Ted Ginn... Charles Johnson in 2010 was an absolute monster with zero help from the DLine. Derek Landri and Nick Hayden sucked. Taylor Brayton, the other DE, had zero sacks if I'm not mistaken. Steve Smith was considered a returner only after being a third round pick in 2011. Team had no interest in developing him as a receiver. Only 5'9 in a league dominated by Randy Moss and Terrell Owens. Goes on to become a borderline HOFer.
  13. Be a man, make a homer prediction.

    I'm a terrible homer. I think the best I can come up with is the Panthers being a top five defense. Front seven is gonna be pretty nasty.
  14. Gerald McCoy to sign with Carolina Panthers

    There's nothing to suggest Cam is going to miss any portion of the season. He's already throwing. That said I wish we'd signed a free safety with that money. Having a good free safety would be fun. Remember those two seasons from Mike Mitchell and Kurt Coleman in 13 and 15? Good times. Poe, McCoy, Short, Love, Butler... it seems just a tiny bit excessive. That's a lot of money that's gonna be sitting on the bench when we dip into a 4-3, assuming we don't have Short line up at DE (which he has done a handful of times in the past).
  15. I just don't trust the guy's talent evaluation. Over the years his 2nd round picks include Jimmy Clausen, Dwayne Jarrett, Eric Shelton, Everette Brown, Keary Colbert, etc. His best 2nd rounder is Richard Marshall or Donte Jackson with over 10 drafts under his belt. Trying to trade up for Greg Little reeks of desperation. He probably wanted Dillard and then got sniped by Philly. Then made a desperate trade-up for Little (who even Houston passed on, in addition to various other teams in need of a decent tackle). Don't trust it. Christian Miller is a "name player" who fell, being the leader in sacks for Alabama, similar to Duke Robinson or Dan Connor or one of the aforementioned second rounders. No real reason to draft him besides that. 3rd round pick spent on a dude who hopefully never plays even though our depth across the board is crippled since Gettleman left. Just hard to root for the team after getting this guy back in the front office and have no reason to expect him to get better. Guy was unemployed for four years without even getting an interview. We're doomed and wasting the final years of prime Luke/Cam.
