  1. Panthers TE Greg Olsen Placed on IR with Broken Foot

    Thankfully in this eight game stretch we get two home games against divisional rivals, the Bears, a home TNF game (Philly), and home MNF game (Miami). If we can pull off 500 we'll be 6-4 heading into the bye and coming back against the Jets...
  2. Week 2: Buffalo "Panthers" at Carolina Panthers

    OLine was crap. Couldn't block the run, couldn't stop the blitzes. Not sure how much of that is because of Ryan Kalil not playing but sheesh. Terrible. Daryl Williams getting flagged like Mike Remmers out there too. Cam looked way better than last week except he once again missed a wide open Ed Dickson and then he missed the CMC touchdown. Shula called a solid game except I wish we didn't just do tosses to CMC. Give him some power runs. Defense was incredible except for when we went into prevent (win) defense. Tyrod overthrew Zay by a hair and if he didn't, that's probably game over for us. Olsen breaking his foot is horrific news. No idea how long that takes to heal but I imagine he will miss at least half the season if not more.
  3. Literally have to rely on Ed Dickson. At least we play the Saints next week. I don't think it really matters who you start against them, should be an easy 30 points.
  4. Bills vs. Panthers Week 2

    It's been a long time but Rivera and Frazier played together on the Bears for two seasons and then spent four years being defensive assistants in Philadelphia from 99-02 before Frazier headed out to Cincy to be a DC. Not to mention McDermott being Rivera's DC for the past six seasons and Rivera coaching against Frazier six times in that same timespan (going 1-1 as HCs and 4-0 when Frazier was DC). I don't know... the coaching advantage seems tipped in Carolina's favor. Not to say that I think McDermott sucks or anything, I think Buffalo will become a competitive team under him and Beane if they bring over the same philosophies Rivera/Gettleman had together (and figure out the QB situation). But for now I think Sunday belongs to the Panthers. Should be a solid game tho.
  5. Week 2: Buffalo "Panthers" at Carolina Panthers

    I think the biggest matchup is CMC, Samuel (maybe?), and Olsen vs Ramon Humber, Micah Hyde, Leonard Johnson, and Preston Brown in the middle of the field... I mean, I'm sure these guys are okay, but you're dealing with a super shifty back/receiver, a speedy wideout, and a top two TE in the NFL right there. Would be tough for most defenses to handle. Keep in mind that we opted to let Leonard Johnson walk away this off-season despite having no corner depth.
  6. Week 2: Buffalo "Panthers" at Carolina Panthers

    I won't be surprised if we lose. Shady is probably gonna have a field day. Thankfully their top wideouts are Jordan Matthews, Andre Holmes, and Zay Jones... if we can't handle those three and Charles Clay on passing downs then we deserve to lose. But I feel like Bradberry, Coleman, and the LB duo will hold their own. I feel like we should end up winning but I'm nervous about it. Far more nervous than I was with SF last week.
  7. Butker Cut; Gano Wins Kicking Job

    Bummed it's this new corner instead of Alex Armah. Glad the whole two kicker debacle is over though...
  8. Week 1 GDT: Panthers @ 49ers

    Well with the Saints getting whooped on and the Falcons barely able to handle the Bears... this has been a solid week one for us. Technically we hold the lead in the division due to having a better point differential than Atlanta. Hooray!
  9. Week 1 GDT: Panthers @ 49ers

    Yeah, Hall was lined up as the LE. He wears 94 instead of 74 now. Maybe Peppers is gonna be used as the new Addison and just come in on important 3rd downs. He was also in there on a PAT attempt as a TE. In any case, it was awesome to see him back in Carolina Blue even if he wasn't out there all that much.
  10. Week 1 GDT: Panthers @ 49ers

    Yeah we were quite blessed by SF's horrific OLine today, at least on passing downs. Got to the QB a lot. I lurked the SF gameday thread and saw some of them trashing on Star Lotulelei, who went on to have a fantastic game. Found that amusing. Would give the game ball to him and KK Short. Both were looking dominant. Hope we lock Star up before he ever gets a chance to hit free agency. Also, I could have sworn we had 5 or 6 sacks during the game. Checked the box score after and it's down to 4. Looks like Mike Adams had his sack taken away for some reason. And Mario Addison had one taken away by a CJ penalty. Did anyone notice on Horton's sack-fumble that the DLine at the time was Horton, Love, Star, and Hall? Pretty bizarre. This was in the late 1st/early 2nd too and we're already trotting out the last guys on the depth chart to give everyone breathers. Peppers didn't seem to show up much early in the game either.
  11. Week 1 GDT: Panthers @ 49ers

    Pros: Cam Newton in the 2nd half Pass rush Jonathan Stewart Graham Gano! OLine Cons: Cam in the 1st half, dear god, he was awful... forcing throws, inaccurate, tunnel vision on Benji... McCaffrey technically fumbled twice Flags on punt returns still happening Carlos Hyde had too many big runs imo If Cam hit on a couple more throws this thing would have been ever more embarrassing for SF. As it is, not sure we'd have beat many teams with the performance today. SF is just a really, really bad roster and their coach made some boneheaded decision (going for it on 4th down at midfield?). I hope Cam isn't rusty when we have to deal with a guy who knows us better than anyone else in the NFL. And hope the run defense is ready to be *really* disciplined for Shady.
  12. Week 1 GDT: Panthers @ 49ers

    I hope some of y'all show up for gameday!!!
  13. Week 1 GDT: Panthers @ 49ers

    Well, if the Chiefs can do that to the Patriots with Alex Smith, Kareem Hunt, Tyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce... maybe we can have some fun against them with Cam Newton, Christian McCaffrey, Curtis Samuel, and Greg Olsen...
  14. Week 1 GDT: Panthers @ 49ers

    If we can avoid "position disasters" like we dealt with last season between the OL and secondary, along with Cam not screwing up his shoulder, then we should be okay. We also need to not completely suck on special teams for once. I think the Falcons will regress to the mean like the 2016 Panthers did. Saints still don't have a defense until proven otherwise. Bucs I am so-so on. I think each team will be between 6 and 10 wins though. We do get to beat up on the AFC East. Bucs and Saints should have some fun in the air game even if their defenses aren't great to win them some games.

    Bill Barnwell has us in the top tier of potential Super Bowl winners. We're grouped with the Giants, Seahawks, Steelers, Packers, and Patriots... http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/20591865/bill-barnwell-2017-nfl-preview-case-all-32-teams-play-super-bowl-lii
