OK, so it’s just preseason. But, it’s football and I am an addict. So, here are a few things I noticed while watching way too much NFL Network this weekend.
Ok, so I admit it should probably be called the Bad and the Good since there was alot more to criticize than to praise. But, most importantly, here are my thoughts on Panthers-Eagles…..
It is that time again boys and girls. The Panthers start the preseason Friday night at home against the Bears. Some starters won’t play and the ones that do won’t play long. But, we will watch very closely for any signs of what is to come in the regular season. Here’s the Top 5 things I want to see on Friday night.
Right before I started choking like Tony Romo on a piece of fried chicken, we were debating if the Panthers have enough weapons for Cam to win. And, my answer is yes.
Earlier today the Cats released veteran Guard Geoff “Piggy” Hangartner. Even though he didn’t have a good year last year, the timing was still surprising.
I am going to be honest here. I knew Jon Beason’s contract was terrible. We can thank Marty Hurney (and maybe the Big Cat) for that. But, I didn’t think the Panthers were in a position where they could get him to restructure it.
Ok, I am out on a limb. I think this is the year Rivera and Co. make that leap into the postseason. And, these are the reasons why…….
Another NFL QB has gotten paid. This time it was Matthew Stafford getting a 3 year extension to bring his now five year deal to a value of $76 million. He will get $43 million guaranteed over that time frame. A year from now, I would expect Cam Newton to be signing a new hefty deal as well.
After 4 days of no radio show, I have a ton of thoughts I need to get out of this cranium. Should make for a fun Mac Attack on Monday, but until then, here are some quick random thoughts.
Well, this is not exactly the NFL Network Top 100, but it’s a start. Even the top 5 was screwed up by the players in the league. Here is the real 5 best in the NFL.
