#572 Can't Beat the Broncos AND the refs, too!

Posted by PantherFan007 on 09 September 2016 - 06:58 AM

I got so mad that I had to seriously get a grip on myself and let it go.  I said during the game that the refs were there to make sure the Broncos won the game, and that was before they came back and caught up with us.  More fire for the conspiracy theorists. If the crap isn't officially "rigged", it's definitely prejudiced towards one team or another.


I cannot believe they allowed so many late hits to Cam.  There were two times Cam got hit in the head while being sacked, but no call.   I can't believe Rivera didn't pull Cam after the head to head hit; he was obviously hurt.  I think he has a concussion, he looked, acted, and reacted like he had a concussion.


And the refs called a crippling penalty against Norwell after he clearly got pushed down onto the Denver player, yet an identical play went unnoticed on our next drive where a Denver player (#51) got pushed down on top of one of OUR guys.  I was yelling, "WHERE'S THE PENALTY NOW???".


Just disgusting.

I read yesterday where Butker was kicking 60+ yard field goals "with ease". It was either on Panthers.com or on Charlotteobserver.com

I thought then and there that he'll beat out Gano for the starting spot.

Or we could trade him to the Bucs for and 2nd round pick.....

Voth is pretty good. Of course, now he is working for the Panthers and they will make sure he waters it down.


But otherwise, our beat writers suck butt! I can't stand them! They're a bunch of liberal left wingers who feel the need to spread their liberalism thru their outlet. So you can't follow them without being subjected to all their agenda crap! 


And none of them are any good at their actual jobs of covering the Panthers!


Rant over.

#3601 Ryan Clady

Posted by iiwii on 15 June 2017 - 08:20 PM

I wanted Clady in that draft so bad, and didn't want Otah.  Funny thing, the night before the draft, I dreamed I was working in the Panthers front office and Ryan Clady walked in.  I must have had a confused look on my face because he laughed at me and said "I'm Jeff Otah" and offered to shake my hand.  I knew he wasn't Otah, but I guess I believed him.  


Next day (in real life) in the draft day thread here, when everyone was asked to make their final prediction, mine was Jeff Otah (after all, how can you not believe Ryan Clady, right?).  LOL.  Weird dream, but true.

#3442 Panthers Sign Zeek Bigger

Posted by koda on 31 May 2017 - 05:08 AM

Bigger was a standout MLB at E Carolina with 333 career tackles.


 Predraft he was in Chad Reuter's top 200 prospects. http://www.nfl.com/n...6-draft-top-200

Top senior prospects for 2016 draft: Top 200 Zeek Bigger, ILB, East Carolina

His last name is a bit of a misnomer in terms of size (6-2, 216), but it is apt in terms of his talent. The second-team All-AAC selection is a solid tackler (140 stops last season, 3.5 for loss) and uses his athleticism in coverage, as well (two interceptions, four pass breakups). Bigger is a cinch to be a special-teams stalwart at the next level, but don't be surprised if he earns playing time on defense in the right kind of system.


 I'm still on board with Boulware having a better chance

#2776 Day 3, what a waste!

Posted by PantherFan007 on 30 April 2017 - 07:10 AM

Watch the latest presser on Panthers.com from Gettleman and Rivera discussing these picks, and hopefully you will feel better about it.  Every year there are guys nobody ever heard of who come in and potentially become Pro Bowl talent or even Hall of Famers.


And Butker holds about all of Georgia Tech's kicking records, and holds the record as their highest scoring player.  I have no doubt that he will take Gano's job.   Gettleman said they put their homework into that pick, and could not risk not drafting him.  They wanted him bad, but were afraid he wouldn't go undrafted.   A couple of teams behind the Panthers were in dire need of a kicker, and he was the best on the board at that time. 


As for Armah, they worked him out, the talked with him, they scouted him, and they liked what they saw.  Yet Gettleman admitted it was a gamble, but at "that point in the draft" sometimes it pays off to take a gamble.

Norman was a 5th rounder, just sayin..... :P

He also took 3 years before he was able to see the field too.

Still a good pick and exactly what most teams hope for realistically in the late rounds.

#2639 Panthers & Cardinals the Teams of the Future

Posted by Flawless on 29 April 2017 - 09:01 AM


The Cardinals and Panthers are drafting for the future of football. They’re also on track to be two of the most fun teams in the league.
A quick recap: Arizona used its first-round pick to select Temple linebacker/pass rusher Haason Reddick, then grabbed Washington safety/corner Budda Baker in the second, while Carolina’s top two selections were Stanford running back/receiver/returner extraordinaire Christian McCaffrey and Ohio State hybrid receiver/running back Curtis Samuel. Collectively, these four picks are a great illustration of a simple truth: The NFL is a matchup league.
Pro offenses have increasingly followed the college game and spread out across the field, utilizing three- and four-receiver sets and throwing more passes than ever before. With the pro game more and more coming down to finding and exploiting your opponent’s most vulnerable defender, defenses have responded in kind: The nickel “subpackage” with five or more defensive backs is the new base defense in the NFL, and defenders — regardless of what position they play — that can cover receivers have become essential to every defensive coordinator.
How the Spread Offense Created a Cornerback Gold Rush

College passing attacks have forced a defensive back renaissance
The best way for an offense to create mismatches is to have versatile playmakers capable of lining up all over a formation. Teams covet tight ends that can run block on one down, then split out and run routes as a receiver on the next. They look for running backs that can carry the ball but can also motion out into the slot as a receiver. Conversely, the best way for defenses to counter the versatility of these hybrid players is to deploy linebackers, safeties, and cornerbacks that can do it all, too, whether it’s playing the run or covering downfield with equal aplomb. The traditional lines separating positions have blurred, and Arizona and Carolina have embraced that.

“We love two-for-one players,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said last night after taking Reddick. “He will have a huge impact in a lot of different positions.”
On paper, the former Owl is a fluid off-ball linebacker on first- and second-down capable of dropping into coverage comfortably, stopping the run, or darting through the line on a blitz — the last role a hallmark of defensive coordinator James Bettcher’s unpredictable scheme. In 2016, Reddick avoided trial on an aggravated assault charge for a connection to an off-campus fight by participating in a diversionary program, but he impressed scouts at the Senior Bowl when he quickly picked up the nuances of playing at the second level. His other role in the pros will come more naturally: On third downs, he can move up to the line of scrimmage and rush the passer off the edge — both with his hand on the ground or standing up. This is something he did often for Temple when he racked up 22.5 tackles for a loss last year, including 10.5 sacks.
Opposing offenses will never really know what to expect, especially with Reddick lining up alongside a safety playing linebacker (Deone Bucannon), another safety playing slot cornerback (Tyrann Mathieu), and a handful of other movable chess pieces across the line and in the secondary. The Cardinals’ selection of Baker in the second round echoes the same theme: Baker’s most commonly cited comparison is his new teammate Mathieu — they’re both undersized, explosive, and capable of playing deep down the middle of the field or up in the slot, matched up with tight ends, backs, and receivers. In theory, Baker and Mathieu can be interchangeable in that role for the Arizona defense — once again, you never really know what you’re going to get — but because the former Husky has the range and instincts to play the deep centerfield safety spot, his addition allows Honey Badger to keep doing what he does best: lurking in the midrange, jumping passes, and creating turnovers.
The New Rules of the NFL Draft

Quarterbacks, trades, and the guiding principles that help teams succeed
For the Panthers, a predictable passing game was a weakness in 2016 — the lack of quickness Kelvin Benjamin, Greg Olsen, and Devin Funchess gave Cam Newton downfield meant that almost one-quarter of Newton’s pass attempts were to a receiver who had less than 1 yard of separation, a higher percentage than any other quarterback in the league. McCaffrey and Samuel (who ran a 4.31 at the combine, a number we’d all be raving about had John Ross not broken the record with a 4.22) seem like the perfect antidote to that problem, both capable of lining up in the slot, creating separation in their routes, and giving Newton “easy-win” quick throws underneath. Both should give the Panthers yards-after-the-catch, too.
But that’s not the only advantage Carolina’s new duo presents. By adding two hybrid running back/receivers to their offense, the Panthers should gain the ability to take advantage of any look the defense gives them on any given down. Say a defense counters Carolina’s “three-receiver” look featuring Benjamin, Funchess, Samuel, and McCaffrey with a “light” nickel defense, heavy on defensive backs and short on run-stuffing defensive linemen or bone-crushing linebackers. This should be a common occurrence, and Carolina can run the ball right at it with McCaffrey, Newton, and Samuel, whether it’s downhill or read-option.

Alternatively, if a defense comes out in a base package to counter an offensive look that features both McCaffrey and Jonathan Stewart, the Panthers can just send McCaffrey out to the wing and have him abuse some poor linebacker with a wheel route. This versatility means Carolina should have the opportunity to create mismatches on every single play.
Unless, of course, they’re playing a defense with the versatility of the Cardinals — whose positionless players can play the run or defend against the pass with equal effectiveness. It’s really too bad these teams aren’t slated to play each other this year. We’ll have to keep our fingers crossed for a playoff matchup.

Gentlemen and Ladies, just to cast a contribution to this topic, I, for one, thank GOD that Dave Gettleman is our General Manager and that Ron Rivera is our head coach. Simply head and shoulders above any other managerial team in the NFL, all things considered, period!


Just my opinion.
