Absolutely agree...except...Daniels and "one more solid season doesn't mesh well with me. He is inferior.

That's a blast from the not so distant past. Wasn't he the VP of operations here before Cerrato? What ever happened to him?

Re: Julius Peppers, now thats worth breaking the bank!

Peppers flirting with Broncos?

Julius Peppers | Panthers | Interested: Broncos?
While the Panthers' front office has insisted it is not trading Julius Peppers, the three-time Pro Bowl defensive end was seen in a prominent seat Sunday at a Denver Nuggets game, the Rocky Mountain News reported.
Peppers, who still has one year remaining on his contract, can't speak or visit with another team without the Panthers' permission. Despite trade rumors surrounding Peppers, Panthers GM Marty Hurney stated there was nothing to it.

The more distant Rodgers is from the Skins the better. Many of the mis-deeds early in Snyder's time can be attributed to Rodgers, Spurrier in particular. He was the VP of Football Ops before VC. If you want to keep up with our "good friend" Mr. Rodgers check out the link:

Re: Julius Peppers, now thats worth breaking the bank!

I donít think the Panthers feel they will be able to afford his salary, that they will have to get done next off-season, especially after the inflated salary numbers we have seen this off-season. So, instead of loosing him next year without getting anything in return they figure they should at least attempt to shop him discreetly this off-season, shortly after everyone else is gone, (notice their trickery). Thatís my answer to several people saying, why do you think Carolina doesnít want him. Its not that they donít think he isnít serviceable, or somehow not a superstar anymore, because that statement is purely idiotic, its that they either worry about what he will demand next year while being capable of testing the market and shopping his services.

MaybeÖÖ justÖÖ. maybe he isnít happy there???? and they know they will lose him to free agency next year. Just my two cents.

Also, let me state again that I will be fine if they draft a DE with the first pick in the draft as I think you may have a slim chance of finding someone with the skills of pepper, a risk I feel is worth taking. I donít have a man crush on JP, I just think that at the end of the day we would all be upset if the Panthers deal him for something stupid like several late picks....

i'm not talking about slacking off. i'm talking about losing motivation when your situation seems hopeless and, as a result, you feel helpless. its a natural human response. you feel like no matter how hard you try, your efforts are not enough. this feeling wears you down until you're eventually just going through the motions.

mind you, i'm not offering an excuse for peppers' play this season. merely an alternative perspective from which to view it.

Re: Julius Peppers, now thats worth breaking the bank!

If you have Demetric Evans, Chris Wilson, Phillip Daniels, and Andre Carter why would you need another DE, so he would take up some more cap space?

Good point, if you want depth you can get it in the draft. we've done a pretty good job in getting good defensive linemen in the later rounds (golston, montgomery...i know they're DTs, but we could get a good DE)

Outside of Andre Carter, which one of them is going to get you more then 2 sacks? I know Chris Wilson had around 3-4 last year but I dont see him being a full time starter in the NFL capable of improving our team significantly.

I know some of them may play the run o.k., but you have to be able to get to the QB to make your whole D a more cohesive unit, further opening up the playbook for Blatche allowing this D to step up to a top 5 D this year.

This isnít a depth move; it would be a move that I feel would spring us into a top flight D in the whole NFL! If youíre going to use your first pick on a DE then I'm okay with that as well, but we need another pass rusher in a bad way.

There is no excuse for "slacking off" in the NFL. They are paid an unreal amount of money to produce on every snap. They only actually "work" (if you want to call it that) for 3 hours on a Sunday or monday. Most of the time "practice" is a joke to most of these guys. So you mean to tell me, he can't suck it up for 3 hours a week and play hardcore even though he's getting paid more than the president of the USA?
If he is that tempermental, I don't want him. What happens when he's asked to stop the run, will he run to corner and cry?

1st.) It doesnt matter if Chris Wilson becomes a full time starter off the bat. What he is doing right now is more than was expected. He had 4 sacks last year and that was in limited action. This kid will bulk up like hes being asked to and he will be a force. He had 2 sacks in the Seattle Game alone. that's 6 sacks for an undrafted rookie. How can you not see the potential in this guy? I believe he will prove you wrong, even next year.

2nd) Our defense lays the freakin run GREAT. but you only need 2-3 players capable of creating pressure and getting sacks on the dline then you have to have players who can play the run great too. I think we are on the right road. WE will be fine.

Chris Wilson needs to add about 20-30 pounds to be an every down lineman. Right now, Chris' biggest asset is his speed. If Chris adds 20-30 pounds to his frame, he'll almost certainly slow down. Could Chris Wilson (who will be 26 at the start of the season) develop into some stud D-lineman? Sure, but I wouldn't put money on that bet.

We dont need him to be an everydown lineman, and just because he bulks up, doesnt mean he will lose his burst, especially if he works on his legs. I'm happy with having him as a situational player. If he turns out to be an everydown player then awesome. If not, then oh well. But so far, there's no point to be negative about him. We are allowed to get some gems every once in a while too, and it will continue to happen to teams in the future.

Re: Julius Peppers, now thats worth breaking the bank!

he's still young enough to have 5-6 good years, but he might have hit a wall... not sure.

at his best, he's definitely worth signing, but teams don't just trade away superstud DEs, so you gotta wonder if it's injuries or locker room issues or whatnot that's making them consider this kind of move.

it's easy to buy the hype and expect 20 sacks a year, but you've got to be careful not to end up with another TJ duckett.
