Maybe he'll work out on your team. I wish you good luck. I have a feeling we'll beat you a lot worse this season.

For a big dude he got pushed back on a lot of one on ones. But as a camp body/reserve might as well see if he's got anything left.

He is crap. Like the post above says, he pushed around on one on ones. He was walked backed 5-6 yards on double teams. He is not a run stopper. He is a big waste of space. I was so happy when he was let go.

He is a decent run-stopper, but doesn't provide much in terms of pass rush. Good piece to a rotation.

This isn't even close to the same Seahawks team you played last year. I hope you're ready.

Cole was a mediocre run stuffer with zero pass rush, three seasons ago. I doubt he makes the Panthers roster after they added Lotulelei and Short.

Take this statement to the bank, mate. And then say you heard it here first when it happens.

The most recent picture of Cole that I found. Heavy, but easy to go around.

Ah, the mighty roar of the paper panther.


Panthers are my #2 team, since I live in the Charlotte area. The Panthers did have 39 sacks last year...They were underrated in that department and they just upgraded with two quality DT picks. The d-line will be good. The secondary sucks though and they did not address that need in the offseason other than picking journeymen FAs Drayton Florence and DJ Moore--not much of an upgrade after losing perinial starter, Chris Gamble.

So, what you are saying is that they are paper panthers?

Would you sound any different on an opponents message board? Have a little class, he's here with good intentions asking about Colin Cole. No need to rile him up by insulting his team. There are 32 other fanbases that are just as excited about their teams as we are about ours.

(Well maybe not 32, but there are at least a few that have high hopes)

Cole, when he got paid aka when he came to Seattle his game fell off quite a bit. Undersized and not very strong, I doubt he makes the team. He seems like a guy that just wants the money and could careless about wins and losses.

If by "paper panthers" you mean good enough on paper to be a playoff team? No. I think Atlanta or New O'leens will win the division and I think the wildcards will come out of the NFC West--(Rams, 9'ers, or Hawks). I think the Panthers are good enough to get 9 wins though, which is better than last year but won't be enough to get in the playoffs. They usually play Atlanta close and may challenge them for the division, but if NO returns to form, they're probably will be out of the race.

I like those 2 picks for the Panters. That should really help their DL. I was hoping Seattle would get Kawaan Short.

The Panthers are my pick for 'surprise' team next year. However, I think our defense matches up well against the Panthers offense, and I think our offense is to going to be scary good. Should be a great opening weekend game, though.

Cole is my least favorite type of DT. Instead of anchoring in, when he gets double teamed he sinks back in order to shed the block rather than hold his own and not give away free yards. He gets tackles this way, but they are six yards downfield. He was better in 2011, a little more inconsistent, but he should be a spot rotational guy, nothing more.

Well considering atleast three of our losses came from Dline play last year, yeah. 10-6 seems pretty relevant. But anyway thanks guys for all the info. Definitely have a better understanding now. Go Panthers!

Seems like folks on the Carolina MB consider Wilson to be a poor man's Cam:
http://www.carolinahuddle.com/boards/topic/85988-lets-get-this-party-started-how-do-we-beat-seattle/page-9

So let me ask ya: which team has the edge at QB?

Wilson - Rating 100.0 Ranked #4 in NFL, QBR 69.6 Ranked #8 in NFL
Cam - Rating 86.2 Ranked #15 in NFL, QBR 54.2 Ranked #16 in NFL

I don't think they understand what ''poor man's insert player name here'' means.

While Cam is no joke, its clear that RW is the better QB. Cam has a tendency to get flusterred, especially late in games...the meltdowns are often costly. If you've ever watched the Panther scores flash at the bottom of the screen during a game in the first half, and the Panthers have the lead, chances are they will blow it in the second half. It was infuriating as a fan. RW is the opposite...he's always cool, always under control, down to the end no matter what. There will be moments with Cam when he rumbles down half the field when a play breaks down or throws a lazer deep ball that will leave you in awe. But, RW does that too. Both are clear franchise QBs, but RW is better.

Wilson is, and will continue to be a better overall player than Cam. Cam has a ton of talent, no doubt. But in the clutch, he just doesn't have it. Also, his cockiness and the media dry humping (especially by Deion Sanders) gets real old. That stupid Superman pose thing he does is almost as annoying as Krapperdink and his Bicep kissing.

Cam's pouting and inability to quickly overcome, or even mask, his disappointment and frustration would drive me crazy if I were a Panther's fan.

And if our board had ads like theirs, that would drive me crazy too.

GO HAWKS!

I think it would be ignorant to call either QB the better QB at this point. Wilson came into the league just one year ago and had a team set up around him that was ready to win. We on the other hand drafted Cam to rebuild around. So give another 5-10 years then we can say who is really the better QB. You can also look at in the aspect of yards- Cam is averaging 1000 more passing yards and 350 more rushing yards. Both look to be the future of the NFL tho.

In the games that we blew it was always our defense giving up huge plays at the end of games, something RW doesnt have to worry about. So if you want to look at who has the better team around them right now, that's not a hard decision.

QB efficiency ratings are the most important....second only to TD/INT ratio in my book.

Who gives a hoot how many yards accumulate during a game if a drive doesn't result in 7 points?

The Seahawks and Panthers actually scored about the same amount of touchdowns last year, so i wouldn't say that's it gargantual. Our problem was defense. Cam doesn't get to play game manager like RW, he always has to play keep up.

I tend to agree. Every time I watch a countdown/highlight show of the stuff from my childhood (Montana, Elway, Marino) and even earlier (Namath, Staubach, Fouts, etc) I think about how we're probably going to see Wilson, Newton, Luck, Griffin, etc. on those shows in 15-20 years. I know that a LOT can happen before then, but it's very exciting to be here at the beginning of what could be a new, possibly historic, era of quarterback play. Fun to watch for sure.
:snack:
I also agree that Wilson had a better team around him to start. Even so, I think he made players around him better. As a rookie he inspired veteran guys to work smarter and play harder. If I were a Panthers fan, I'd be hoping that Cam steps up in that regard. He's a one-man offensive machine, but one way or another he (and the coaching staff?) needs to bring others closer to his level of play and turn the frustration into something constructive. I guess starting out 1-6 is enough to bum out anybody. At least your guys finished strong last year. Something to build on and all that.

That was Russell Wilson forced to wear training wheels by old Petey the first part of last year. You'll be getting the latter-half-of-the-season Hawks this time, force multiplied ad infinitum. You don't have a clue what's coming.

Where are the Panthers on the power rankings? 21st? http://espn.go.com/nfl/powerrankings

To be fair, I think that grade is waaay low for the Panthers, and you guys DO have a great QB. No question about that.

Didn't mean to be a jerk, especially to a friendly person just here for info.

Being where we're at is a new experience, even compared to '05. Letting it go to my head a bit :shy:

At the start of last year, 22nd was probably about right. Rookie quarterback, team with a lot of questions coming into a tougher division after a sub-par 7-9 previous season.

That's right. Which proves power rankings mean absolutely nothing.

My point wasn't that power rankings mean absolutely nothing, it was that they change as a team changes over the season. The Seahawks team that started out from a 7-9 season the previous year went 11-5 and deep into the playoffs. They answered the questions raised at the beginning of the season. The Panthers team that started out from a 6-10 season the previous year ended up 7-9. Questions were also answered there.

We are a very complete team in a tough division, coming off a great year with a league top-5 quarterback and running back, who just picked up a top tier receiver, and had a solid draft. How is it odd that we would be considered a #1 team? The Panthers are a team that went one game better than their previous 6-10 season, with questions still left to be answered. #21 is probably about right to start the year, even if they go to the Super Bowl this year.

Statistically speaking Russell WIlson WAS a top 5 QB last year. Only 4 QB's had QB ratings at 100 or higher. RW was #4 on that list. The new QBR ratings he was ranked #8. I think we can both agree that it would be silly to say he's not in the top 10 of QB's based solely on his 2012 performance, right?

He ranked #8 in Completion % (64.1%) with Rivers. Ahead of Brees and Brady (Though he didn't throw it nearly as much) Cam was #26 with a 57.7%
He ranked #4 in yards/ Attp - Cam Newton was #3.
Ranked #9 (tied) in passing TD's with 26, (tied with Manning, Rivers, Big Ben). Newton ranked #19 with 21 TD's.
Ranked #2 behind Rodgers in Att/TD- Rodgers was 7.07%, RW was 6.62% In other words Rodgers threw a TD every 14.15 passes last year. RW in 2nd place (ahead of Brees, Manning) threw a TD every 15.12 pass attempts.

Cam Newton was #22 in this statistic with a 3.92% or a TD pass every 25.53 throws.

Top 10 based on 2012? Sure. As an NC State fan I'm pulling for Wilson. Just don't get to carried away after one season. Just sayin. With Cam's surrounding cast right now, I'm very happy with his progress. Like I said, we're building around him.

The Seahawks and Panthers actually scored about the same amount of touchdowns last year, so i wouldn't say that's it gargantual. Our problem was defense. Cam doesn't get to play game manager like RW, he always has to play keep up.


A possible counter is that Cam got to play against an easier set of defenses than Russell did. NFC South, AFC West, etc.

To make this a bit less argumentative, can you tell us more about the 2012 Panthers? Very quietly, you won your last four games, including a great home performance against the Falcons. You can stretch it out to the Panthers winning five of the last six, and six of the last nine games.

What changed about your team that made/helped you guys play a lot better?
