    Worst... List... Ever???

    NFL networks Greg Rosenthal made what may go down in my personal media archival rankings as the WORST rankings of anything sports related ever compiled. If you have NFL mobile app, check if out. Top 4 is no brainer easy, with Mahomes at one and the next 3 in any order all being acceptable, defendable opinions. It goes a great distance off the rails after that. His own criteria is changed and challenged early and often by his own disregard for any adherence to it. For starters: 14. Brady 15. Goff 16. Brees Then: 22. Minshew 23. Josh Allen Etc... am I crazy, or is this super- trash? Check it out. Let me know what y'all think.

    State Of The Franchise: Carolina Panthers

    New user on here but piggy backing off the Falcons & Bucs State Of The Franchise threads figured we get a Panthers one going. So at this point we have seen moves that most of us have scratched our heads about by our GM this off-season thus far after what seemed like a brilliant off-season last year. Releasing the teams all time best WR in Steve Smith after him & Gettleman's relationship seemed to fall apart, seemed to become personal, and probably some due to his decline in production even though he was still the best WR on the roster and should have retired here. We have watched them let players walk or sign elsewhere due to our cap situation with all of our other three WR in Hixon, Ginn, & Lafell. Then Mitchell, Captain, Hartsock, Senn, Florence, and others. Add in the retirement of LT Jordan Gross, and Wharton in FA unsure still about his future. We look at a team who finished 12-4 NFC South Champs and the #2 overall seed who appears to be in shambles on the offensive side of the ball and the secondary again. Which some we can partly blame the Hurney regime over due to his massive contracts to Williams, Stewart, and Johnson and putting our cap in this situation in his final years with us. Now as of today we look at how Gettleman is filling these rolls and take our guesses of what they are thinking going into the draft to fill spots. Up to this point we have filled some of the WR roles by replacing some spots with former Bucs WR Tiquan Underwood 27 years old, former Steelers WR Jerrcho Cotchery 31 years old, and former Eagles WR Jason Avant 30 years old going a lot older then I thought they would and a young former Georgia WR King & young McNutt sitting on the roster. Missing out on LT Collins in Free Agency as he ended up with the Bucs & WR Nicks after he ended up with the Colts. Then signing former Rams pass blocking TE Mike McNeill 26 years old and on the verge of signing former Ravens TE Ed Dickson 26 years old. Then we turn to how we filled roles in the secondary and defense resigning CB James Dockery, former Saints Safety Roman Harper 31 years old, and former Cardinals CB Antoine Cason 27 years old who has played under Rivera before in San Diego and had his best years under Rivera in SD. Some of the best moves of the off-season though imo tagging DE Greg Hardy ensuring he returns in 2014 while they continue to work out a long term deal to lower the cap hit & avoid the tag. Then the other day resigning DT Colin Cole ensuring our entire D-line returns from 2013 which should hopefully do like last year free up LB & help our patch work secondary. With rumors floating on Godfrey being on the cutting block to free up $5 million in cap as a June 1st cut and former Flacons CB DeCloud visiting as a possible fill in for that role. Rumors of moving Byron Bell possibly stepping over to LT after how poorly he played at RT. There is some hope in that secondary with two steals from UDFA with Lester & White who could do nothing but improve from last years rookie year. Now that most of the moves have been outlined. I am trying to stay optimistic about the future and where we are going even though after last year it seemed we were only a few pieces from making our first back to back playoff appearance in franchise history and maybe a chance at Super Bowl run. With all that said what do you think we should do in the draft, trade up, trade back, stay at 28 in each round? Where should we look to fill roles in the draft? What could they do with the draft that would make you feel better after and more optimistic we would have a chance at another good season?

  6. Just thought I would post the trailer was released today with Panthers LB & DPOTY Luke Kuechly gracing the first trailer I am not sure how to post youtube videos on here yet so here is the link to the trailer if someone wants to post it,
  7. Figured I would make a thread to come to discuss the everyone's schedules that were just released. Talk about games you are looking forward to, games you might go to, match ups, SNF, MNF, TNF, and what you think of teams overall schedules. Who ended up with the easiest or hardest?

    Redskins Training Camp Battles to Watch

    There will be a number of positions up for grabs as the Redskins open up training camp in 12 days. With free agent additions and subtractions, draft picks, and the continued development of young players the training camp battles will be intense. Below are the training camp battles to watch when the Redskins open training camp in Richmond Virginia. 1) Third Down/Backup Running Back: Alfred Morris is the unquestioned starter after racking up 2,888 yards and 20 touchdowns in two years in Washington. He was the steal of the 2012 draft and came out of nowhere to seize the starting running back position in Washington, but who is behind him? Roy Helu is the favorite to be the backup running back because he did it last year and he excels at blocking and catching the ball out of the backfield. Evan Royster, Chris Thompson and Lache Seastrunk should all be in the mix as well. Of that group Seastrunk should give Helu the biggest run for his money. He’s reminds me of Darren Sproles and brings a similar type of electrifying ability. He must improve his pass blocking and prove that he can catch the ball out of the backfield. He rarely caught the ball at Baylor so he will have to prove in training camp that he can be a reliable option in the passing came for Robert Griffin III. Prediction: Roy Helu’s experience as a third down back gives him the edge as Lache Seastrunk and others gain more experience. Seastrunk should contribute down the road, but has a lot to learn. 2) Right Guard: Chris Chester and third-round draft pick Spencer Long will be fighting to see who will be the starting right guard in 2014. Chester had a solid 2012, but took a big step back last season. He will have to improve or Long will take his job. Long is the long-term solution, but will have to learn what it takes to be an NFL offensive lineman. The Redskins also have Josh LeRibeus who played well against the Seahawks in the 2012 playoffs after Kory Lichtensteiger went down with an injury. LeRibeus came to training camp last year out of shape and basically lost a year with the Redskins. He is in better shape this year, but his performance last year left the Redskins with a sour taste in the their mouth. Prediction: Chris Chester holds onto the job because of his experience, but expect Long to start in 2015 at the latest. If Long wins this battle then Chester could easily be cut which would save the Redskins $3 million. 3) Right Tackle: Tyler Polumbus is one of the most criticized players on the Redskins roster. Despite what people say he doesn’t suck and was ranked as the 15th best right tackle by Bleacher Report. That is not great, but it is also not terrible. He isn’t the strongest offensive lineman, but at 6’8” he has the length to help him in pass protection. The Redskins saw a borderline first round talent drop into the third round when they selected Morgan Moses. Moses has already admitted that he won’t be able to get away with the same things that he got away with in college. In college he was bigger and stronger than everyone so he could bully defensive lineman, but he won’t get away with that this season when he will have to face defensive lineman just as big and strong as him. Moses has a lot to learn including improving his technique and learning to stay lower which can be hard for a 6’6” man. Former sixth-round pick Tom Compton will also be thrown in the mix, but will more than likely be fighting for one of the backup jobs. Prediction: Tyler Polumbus keeps his job because he is more experienced and prepared to play this season than Morgan Moses. With more experience and overall improvement in his game Moses should start for the Redskins down the road and possibly as early as 2015. 4) Wide Receiver Depth: DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts are the clear top receivers on the Redskins depth chart. Behind them is a cluster of players including Leonard Hankerson (who is recovering from a torn ACL), Santana Moss, Ryan Grant (2014 fifth-round draft pick), and Aldrick Robinson. You can also throw in Nick Williams, Cody Hoffman, and Lee Doss, but they are more long shots to make the roster. Moss should make the roster because he can help mentor the young receivers and should have another few years of production in him. Grant isn’t the fastest player and isn’t a great athlete, but he has some of the best hands of anyone coming out of the 2014 draft and should develop into a solid short to medium passing option for RG3. Hankerson has had a disappointing start to his Redskins career with two of his three seasons being cut short by injury. Aldrick Robinson must prove that he is more than a deep threat. Prediction: The Redskins keep Moss, Robinson, Grant, and Hoffman. Hoffman is a long shot, but he plays special teams and at 6’4” is the tallest receiver on the roster. Hankerson starts the season on the PUP list. 5) Backup Outside Linebacker: Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan will be the starters against the Texans baring injury. Both are former first-round picks and both have the potential to be stars in this league. Behind them are Rob Jackson, Brandon Jenkins and rookie second-round pick Trent Murphy. Jackson filled in for Orakpo in 2012 and did a solid job. He is pretty good in coverage and made the key interception against the Cowboys in 2012 when he dropped back in coverage fooling Tony Romo and made the interception to seal the NFC East title for the Redskins. Jenkins is more of a project for the Redskins and saw no playing time as a rookie last season. Murphy is similar to Kerrigan in his relentlessness to chase the ball carrier or quarterback. Murphy will give you everything he has on every play and should develop into a solid player. Prediction: Trent Murphy will step in should Orakpo or Kerrigan suffer an injury in 2014 or if either needs a breather. His motor, relentless attitude, and desire to improve will win him the job. Murphy will be moved all around the Redskins front seven especially in obvious passing situations. He has the good fortune of playing behind Orakpo and Kerrigan and learning from them. 6) Inside Linebacker- Perry Riley will be one of the Redskins starters in the 3-4, but they will be searching for another starter. Keenan Robinson, Darryl Sharpton and Akeem Jordan will all be fighting for the starting job. Riley has been groomed by the retired and potential future Hall of Famer London Fletcher to take over as the leader of the Redskins defense. Riley’s experience as a starter should take some pressure off whoever wins the other starting spot. Prediction: Keenan Robinson who is coming off back-to-back torn pectoral muscle injuries will win the starting job. There are definitely questions as to whether he can stay healthy, but he has already been lining up with the starters in OTAs and mini camp. He is one of the Redskins best linebackers in coverage and should develop into a solid starter if he can stay healthy. 7) Third Cornerback: DeAngelo Hall and David Amerson are the starters, but there is a big opening behind them. The Redskins picked up Tracy Porter in free agency who will always be known for picking off Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl to help the Saints seal a Super Bowl XLIV victory. The Redskins also have E.J. Biggers, Richard Crawford, Chase Minnifield, and Bashaud Breeland. There is no clear favorite among this group so the battle should be intense. Prediction: Richard Crawford would likely win the job if he was 100 percent healthy, but it will be hard for him to win the job coming off a torn ACL. Tracy Porter wins the job because of his experience, but don’t be surprised if rookie fourth-round draft pick Bashaud Breeland takes over before too long. Breeland could have been a potential first-round draft pick had he stayed in school another season, but he came out to support his 11-month-old daughter. 8) Special Teams: The Redskins had a terrible 2013 season, but this was their weakest unit last season. Usually special teams don’t lose you games, but this unit was so putrid last season that they were the sole reason for several losses. Kai Forbath and Zach Hocker will battle it out to see who is the Redskins kicker. Forbath has experience on his side, but Hocker has a stronger leg, which would help the Redskins on kickoffs (which Forbath struggled with in 2013). Robert Malone and Blake Clingan will battle it out to be the Redskins punter. Chris Thompson, Cody Hoffman, Richard Crawford, Andre Roberts, and Lache Seastrunk should all be battling it out for both returning positions. Prediction- Kai Forbath has the weaker leg, but is the better and more experienced kicker and wins the starting job. Robert Malone wins the starting punting job. Andre Roberts who was upset and not being a starting wide receiver will be the starting punt returner. Lache Seastrunk will be the starting kickoff return man. Since there are technically two kickoff return men Chris Thompson will get the other slot (if he makes the roster).
  9. I'd have to go with Brady. He was throwing to nobody this season and still put up solid numbers. And we all saw what he can do when he's given a real #1 option back when he had Moss.

    Thoughts on the new Probowl?

    I'm not sure how many of you watched the pro bowl last night... but I'm sure many of you are hearing about it today. Honestly, I just turned the game on to watch something other than NHL or Basketball, and I was pleasantly surprised. From the first snap, you could tell that there was at least some more effort being put into it from the trenches than in recent years. None of the love tapping business lineman usually do. Players like JJ Watt, Quinn, Mario Williams etc were all getting after the QB. Every QB got hit multiple times or sacked in the game(something uncommon in recent probowls). Overall, I think there was improvement in effort all-around to not make it an embarrassment. What are your thoughts?
  11. In other news, Sean is selling his kidneys in an attempt to enter the NFL Draft
  12. ...from either side of the football, at the peak of their careers, to play for your team right now, who would they be? The only catch, they can't have played for your team in the past. Mine would have to be: S, Brian Dawkins DE, Reggie White Imagine that defense
