LMAO at paying Darnold whatever they're paying him to end up being the 3rd string qb.

Baker is fine. Whatever. Baker is better than Darnold and we gave up very little to get him. Hard to be upset about that.

But my contention all along has been that Baker doesn’t suddenly make this a 11-6 playoff team. With a healthy CMC and a healthy Baker…what’s the ceiling for this team….9-8? Maybe I’m just being deeply pessimistic.

Just feels like the Panthers are stuck in this unfortunate in between space of not quite tanking but also definitely not competing for the playoffs either. Maybe Baker changes that.

I don’t really want to tank. But they’ve also had 3 straight top 10 picks. Could’ve just sucked ass for another year and then been in position to draft a top QB in 2023 draft with a potential top 5 ish pick

Yeah we definitely have a ceiling, partly because of team construction, but also partially because we've got a really tough schedule this coming year. I think this is mostly a desperation pick by Rhule to save his bacon. Like everyone else, though, I don't hate it. I personally really like Corrall, and this deal ends after this season, so I like the timing of it too.

^^^Pretty sure Darnold will be the 2nd string QB and will not be behind Matt Corrall on the depth chart.

Definitely agree.

And I do think Baker could be fun. Baker is obviously not Cam Newton. But a healthy Baker can at least give this team an identity and personality that it does not currently have and was never going to have with Darnold. The only risk to this is sacrificing draft position in 2024. So it’s hard not to at least be somewhat happy about it.

^^obviously i am not being serious, but Darnold is absolutely terrible. Like he's shown nothing on the field in 4 years that demonstrates he can ever be a competent NFL player.

From ESPN:
Quote :
"The team believes competition will make Darnold better, a league source said, and isn't worried this could backfire. The source added there is no plan to trade Darnold."


Lol

No team would pick up his contract so might as well keep him. That way Corrall can develop without any pressure to play.

I mean they can't get any worse than Darnold starting. Unless him and Mayfield got into a big fight and injured each other for the year, forcing the Panthers to sign Ryan Finley

I've been impressed by the way Baker's handled all the mudslinging the Browns have done since he left, seems to be handling it pretty maturely.

the blue ones they wore against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving were much better than the normal blue alternates

it is a bit funny to me that they’ve finally gone with the black helmet that fans have always wanted going into a season in which expectations are pretty low

Yeah the "color rush" bullshit was literally just their regular blue jerseys with blue pants.

I think the new helmet looks pretty cool, but I am also a big fan of helmets and jerseys not being the same color. I like the contrast. Would like to see this with the road uniforms

Like i can't think of a single instance of a football team wearing matching helmet+jersey+pants colors and thinking WOW THIS LOOKS GOOD.

Not sure where to put this

More chaos at Tepper Sports

COO Mark Hart Resigns
https://www.wbtv.com/2022/07/19/tepper-sports-entertainment-coo-resigns-source-says/

Tepper Sports & Entertainment pulls ouf of Eastland Mall Redevelopment
https://www.thestate.com/sports/nfl/article263676168.html

With the Training Facility breaking down and this project being scrapped by TSE, this was where Charlotte FC was going have their HQ and Training Ground. This seems like the opening moves to move both teams. Logically the only locales that could support an NFL Team and MLS Team would be St Louis or San Antonio. Tepper wants a Super Bowl and he isn't going to get it in Charlotte due to lack of hotel rooms near the stadium.

While I'm not sure what conclusion I'd go to with those combined moves, I'm not sure I'd go to moving the team just yet. According to reports at the time of the purchase, the main reason Tepper got the bid and not home-grown man Peter Navarro was cause Tepper pledged to keep the team in Charlotte while Navarro wanted to relocate to SC. Not sure how true that is or how much a pledge means to Tepper, but worth keeping in mind.

That said I don't really see him moving the team, even if the city (hopefully) refuses to pay for a shiny new retractable roof stadium(literally the biggest waste of money imaginable.) The stadium is a bigger issue regarding the super bowl than the hotels. But if he wants a fucking retractable dome that stays closed 100% of the time like Atlanta, let him pay for it. Fuck welfare for billionaires.

I think all his blunders with Rock Hill and troubles within the corporate side of his businesses will make other cities wary of him as well

there is absolutely nothing wrong with BOA. if he wants a new stadium, he can pay for it

also he's owned the team for an incredibly short time, so i doubt he's made enough friends among the other owners to get the votes to move.

^ I agree with you in principle, but unfortunately I've read that structurally BoA doesn't have the infrastructure for a retractable roof -- those things are crazy heavy and place huge loads/moments on the building. A permanent roof *could* work, but as I understand it that's the one thing everyone agrees on: no roof is better than only roof.

retractable roofs are pointless. literally the worst option for any stadium. all they do is add >$1 billion to the cost all so they can play all the games with it closed. they're just a billionaire dick measuring contest.

Yes, unless you want to host a super bowl and you're not New Orleans

Which, personally, I could care less about hosting one. I agree with you, I don't want a dome. But I'd bet on having a stadium with one in some shape or form in the next 10 years.

If they want to build a dome, fine build a dome. But don't waste money on a retractable dome that will never be opened for a game. Especially if the city/state pay even 1 dime for it.

Breaking: Matt Rhule is still an idiot

Quote :
"We’ve got good players on the offensive line. So we’re not just gonna hand him anything,” Rhule said. “He’s going to go earn it. And knowing Ickey, I think that’s probably the way he likes it."


This is why you're going to get fired. You had a terrible OL last year. Now you're giving your top pick 2nd team reps just because he's a rookie. Fucking dolt.

Yeah, how dare a rookie learn the position at the highest level instead of being forced into action in training camp

They drafted him to be the left tackle of the future, not the left tackle in the first preseason game

Yeah so put the guy who was bad at it last year in front of him! Great thinking!

Football really isn't rocket science. Being an offensive lineman doesn't massively change from college to the NFL.

Obviously not, but if the guy you drafted as the first OT taken can't start for you when you added no one else to a terrible offensive line (and multiple other rookie OTs are getting starter reps in their respective camps) something is wrong.

I realize Ruhle has plenty of things to question, but this seems like a complete non story, that a rookie is being treated like a rookie in July and August.
