  1. Playoffs/Offseason Thread

    Our LB coach is the former DC for Air Force. Forgot his name. Too lazy to look up. We also interviewed Lake Dawson a second time. Hopefully we hire him. Done with Hurney. Was done with him several years ago, actually.
  2. Playoffs/Offseason Thread

    Yeah, Cardinals poaching LB coach Al Holcomb to be DC. And OL coach Ray Brown to have the same position. I imagine Sammy Mills becomes the new DL coach. John Matsko could be "demoted" from Run Game Coordinator to OL coach, though I'm not sure there was a big difference between the two. No clue who could become LB coach.
  3. Would cry tears of joy if Carolina managed to get Ridley. Not a fan of Harrison in the second but whatever, doesn't matter, we got Ridley.
  4. Playoffs/Offseason Thread

    He wasn't fired. His contract was up. He was mostly just hired because we had no other options at STC last year. Probably didn't get along all that well with Rivera. He'll probably latch on with a new HC.
  5. Offseason Prediction

    I would rather gamble on Taylor Moton succeeding Norwell than have lord knows how much guaranteed money tied up in our interior. Back in 2014 Rivera even said Norwell was on the verge of being cut until he got to play with the 1s and suddenly looked better when surrounded by stronger talent. I don't trust it. We don't have an NT to replace Star. His backup is Kyle Love. The market is probably not great (Dontari Poe is a possibility I guess but it isn't like he'd be cheaper than Star). If we don't have a good NT our defense will be horrific. Star soaks up a lot of double teams that allow KK, Mario, and Peppers to feast. Gano just led the NFL in FG%. He also consistently leads the league in touchback %. He's been a top five or ten kicker since joining the team outside of the 2016 season where he stank for whatever reason.
  6. Offseason Prediction

    Ownership - There is no way the Panthers move. They have a lease with BOFA, which has been renovated plenty in recent years, and there is almost no way 2/3 of the NFL's owners would vote to approve a move. The Carolina's are a large market that they'd want to take advantage of. Cuts - I honestly don't think a single one of these will happen except for CJ and maybe Shepard. Not keeping Gano would be flat-out stupid as hell. Same with Star.
  7. Yo Momma's Mock #2 with a 2nd Round added

    Really don't want a tweener DE for Carolina. Mark Andrews would be a great pick there though.

    Glad to see the Saints get eliminated. Especially in that fashion. Lord. That was incredible.
  9. Most Surprising Player on Your Team This Year?

    I was surprised Julius Peppers had 11 sacks in him. Devin Funchess also surprised me, becoming something of a quasi #1. Had more recs, yards, TDs this year than he had in previous two seasons combined.
  10. Norv Turner hired as Panthers OC

    Well we already ran a similar offense RE Matt Kalil sucking. It isn't like Rob Chudzinski didn't learn under Norv for several seasons and then Shula adapted Chud's playbook to be a bit more run-oriented. Perhaps Norv is in the in-between of these two guys and can make it all mesh. Or maybe he'll be awful. I'm more concerned with getting a QB coach who will push Cam. Finally fix his footwork. Make less bone-headed decisions. Shula and Dorsey both failed at that.
  11. Playoffs/Offseason Thread

    Also, I hope Norv has learned to adapt a little. He would have been a great offensive mind ten or fifteen years ago. He's never had someone with a skillset like Cam. Olsen also isn't particularly similar to Gates. We don't have fast wideouts like VJax or Gordon or Floyd. Perhaps CMC can become Sproles-esque (but with more running). Armah as the new Tolbert.
  12. Playoffs/Offseason Thread

    I think I would rather lose Wilks, honestly... Really preferred McDermott's defense. More zone led to more consistent turnovers. Wilks put too much trust in his DBs which is a mistake. We coulda promoted Eric Washington or brought in Jack Del Rio to go back to basics.
  13. Norv Turner hired as Panthers OC

    Considering the source is David Newton I would wait a bit for confirmation from elsewhere. That guy never has scoops.
  14. Week 18: Panthers @ Sain'ts

    I'm disgusted by the actions of Jerry Richardson. I hope he lives out the short remaining years of his life in misery and shame. Anyone who is revealed to have covered for him once the investigation is over should be instantly fired. However the SI article didn't hint at the players or locker room having anything to do with that. Unfortunately it seems like Saints fans are unable to reconcile with the fact that their team was led by someone who is actively interested in ruining the livelihood of others. If you can live with that, fine, but just accept it and stop defending it.
  15. Week 18: Panthers @ Sain'ts

    The Saints being awful at actually getting bounties doesn't stop them from putting bounties on players, dude. Do you even know how to debate? Just own it. Own that your team is dirtier than Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras.
