I am an avid fan of all sports. Football to baseball, college basketball to the NBA finals, every race and wrestling match in between. I became a wrestling columnist for Tha O Show ( in 2006. Initially many of my articles centered around "Raw", "Smackdown", "ECW", and "TNA". I really began to take it seriously in 2007 and by 2008 I was named Associate Producer to the show. I have been writing for Bleacher Report for about a year and I hope to continue to do so. I strive to grow my reader base and learn all that I can from the other talented writers and editors associated with this site.

    Hey, how's it going? I posted a reply to all the comments on my recent article about the Gamecocks performance on Saturday against Auburn. Just wanted to let you know so you could check it out and not think I am bashing Carolina too much. Kind of a retraction of some of my comments. Anyway...Go Gamecocks! I enjoy all your posts and thanks for reading mine.

    What do you think about Michael Vick being Carolina's starting qb? He would help our offense with the whole-lack of another wide receiver thing, but has a very strong arm, and can play starting qb in this league.

    I like it, but I'd be happy with Matt Moore as well.

    I still hope Peppers stays, but if he leaves, I think our need for a defensive pass rusher greatly jumps. Whether it be Dunlap, Hardy, or Graham on the line, or Kindle, Muckelroy, Bowman, Norwood or Witherspoon at linebacker, we need a pass rusher. Dunlap has the unlimited potential, and if we can have him mentored by a leader, I would love a mature Carlos Dunlap playing for the Panthers. However, Hardy or Kindle would also be fun.

    A DT, a WR, and some offensive line depth are also needed. Mardy Gilyard? Damian Williams? Brandon LaFell? Golden Tate? Arrelious Benn? Jeremy Williams? Jordan Shipley?

    My point is that wide receiver is deep and talented this year. Dunlap or Kindle in the second, and Gilyard or Damian Williams in the third would be ideal. Maybe pick up a dt in the fourth.

    With all due respect my man, I didn't quite like that you put Morgan on your flop list. He was still the man when he was on the field. I think Eric Shelton (round 2, 2005 draft) is MUCH more deserving of that #5 spot. But still, it's all love among Panthers fans. Keep pounding!

    I don't know, the Bengals are using Simpson as a number 4...

    So if Jarrett is at worst case scenario, at a number 3 wide receiver, and the Bengals don't trade us Simpson, Breaston, Gonzalez, and Floyd would all be great options.

    Moving on, what's the defensive line/linebackers like? I would say we need to sign Peppers longterm, make Johnson a starter opposite Peppers, and move Brown to outside linebacker. This would let us draft a defensive tackle.

    Okay, so our secondaries would look like this: Gamble and Marshall at corner, with Munnerlyn being our third corner, and Martin and Rolle at safety, with Godfrey and Harris backing up.

    Sounds good. Now let's look to wide receiver. I think Dwayne Jarrett showed enough promise to merit another chance at the starting job, so that puts us at Smith, Jarrett, and Muhammad. I think we should definitely add some youth to the position, whether it be through trade, free agency, or the draft.

    If it comes through the draft, I would say we should go Golden Tate.

    If it comes through free agency, Davone Bess would be my first choice, and Steve Breaston my second.

    If it comes through trade though, we could go one of two ways. Anthony Gonzalez looks useless in Indy, with Collie and Garcon jumping ahead of him. Jerome Simpson of the Cincinnati Bengals is another option, purely victim of wide receiver depth. He's a fast, extremely athletic, high flying, highlight machine, and is my favorite option here.

    What do you think about Myron Rolle possibly being our 2010-2011 strong safety? I would love the Cats to draft him, and he'll come somewhat cheaply. When he went to Oxford, he dropped 5 pounds, and dropped .15 off his 40, now running a 4.44.

    Thoughts? I think he'd look good with Godfrey or Martin beside him.

    Here is an article I thought you should read. It seems some of vindictiveness is hurting relationships with area Head Coaches. There are some top prospects on this man's team in coming years.
