Well we know why Minny didn't resign him.

Just gonna have to hope that being with his brother gives him some sort of renaissance. Gotta remember that sans-SB50 we made Oher looked better than he had since his rookie season too. Perhaps John Matsko and Ray Brown have some tricks up their sleeves.

Panthers now have eleven former first round picks on the team. Has to be the most in the NFL, right?


Browns are a year or two away from smashing us in that race.

- He is a pretty poor player (now)
- No passion for NFL
- Maybe gets a lil passion from playing with big bro
- Vikings fans wanted no part of a longterm deal
- Massive overpay for his current skill level (which has detriotated)
- He is a lighter OT, & had great legs initally.
- Now, he is just light and can be bullrushed, and his legs are not where they were and he gets beat with speed.
- Zero ability to play inside
- Bad Clemmings (cheap) > Bad Kalil (expensive)

Wasn't Kalil at least somewhat decent at the start of his career? Or was he always bad? Either way, what an awful deal.

All Pro Rookie, then fell off a cliff.

Basically chronic injuries killed his development. He was good as a rookie, but all pro worthy? I wouldn't say he was that good. I think he made the pro bowl but that doesn't mean much.

Someone needs to light a fire under Kalil, as others said, he plays soft and might even be disinterested.

Kalil, and frustratingly so, also commits a lot of penalties. sometimes multiple times per game.

Maybe but I just have a hard time putting Clemmings on that side of the > sign. A heavy bag may have been more useful than him on some plays...

Kalil honestly, wasn't much better in his last season he played. Let up close to 15 sacks. It was terrible.

Panthers were forced to make a move at LT. Here's to hoping they can resurrect his career. Oher turned out quite good for us before his concussion.

5y/55mill isn't and shouldn't be a move.

it's preposterous on all fronts.
