  • Interests I certainly bleed my Panther blue, and have followed the team so long, that I'm beginning to feel like history as opposed to remembering history. That being said, I follow the Panthers very closely and am truly a Panthers fanatic in the best sense of the word.

    In addition to following the Panthers and the NFL, I also write poems and essays regarding different aspects of race relations in America, and sometimes the world. You can see some of my poetry at blackpoems.net, and perhaps more importantly read my essays on race at racerelations.net. Yes, I know that dealing with racial issues can seem somewhat taboo at times, but my goal is to provide forums where people can at least open up a dialogue and discuss racial issues forthrightly, but respectfully. It is my dream that people will get to a point where, like Dr. martin Luther King expressed, people will be judged by their character and not skin color. Moreover, I have been known to write reviews and opinions on different aspects of the wireless industry, and other issues that affect consumers.

    Lastly, I am a family man who works a penny ante job, enjoys sports and very few TV shows, and plays video games. I am in some ways the quintessential "starving artist", who somewhat revels in being a rebel and covets a Bohemian lifestyle.

    First off,  it's not really something that you've picked up on, as much as it is you're speculating on. Secondly,  saying that it would have arguably been one of the best in franchise history isn't really saying that much. The bar for having an outstanding receiving corps for this franchise is pretty low. And when I say 'outstanding' I am using it in the most literal sense of the word. Third,  injuries are unfortunately part of the game, that's why you have to plan and prepare for them,  especially at key positions. 
     It's hardly a coincidence that the only time we have been to the Super Bowl is when we had legit threats at multiple receiving positions. We were better and deeper at the position than a lot of teams,  plus we had a great defense to boot. This is the perfect example of having a good defense and good receivers.  Our team was the most balanced it had been and has been since. 
    As for our future at the position and our young receivers growing, I agree wholeheartedly.  KB had already shown signs of progressing this off-season. If Funchess can get over his hammy issues,  then he can start developing in earnest. Who knows what we have in our young guys (including Norwood)? We can only speculate based on what we've seen,  what we've heard,  scouting reports,  draft position, etc. One thing is for sure though,  it all begins with catching the ball. 
    Lastly, back to my main point about this thread: the Colts ain't really got poo to do with us getting our team and receiving corps to where it needs to be. You can have a good defense and a good receiving corps simultaneously.

    Thomas, I am not gonna start any fights with you tonight.  As you have alluded to before, the regular season will give us clarity.

    Do you personally think that three is sufficient being that Brockel is on ice?

    Hmm. Perhaps Mucas has the edge on Swole Bones.

    I am just glad that their looking for another receiver, irrespective of what Corey does.

    Well, that's certainly not what I've said, and certainly not what I've seen.

    I wouldn't be so sure. Gettleman said "That's why they call the position receiver."
    Let him drop multiple passes and see what happens.  
    He's going to be out there. That's two reporters that have said it.

    J.Jones: Four players are on the roster bubble, need to play well
    Jonathan Jones is reporting that four players are on the bubble. Corey Brown, Lou Young, Brandon Williams and Ben Jacobs need to have some meaning in this "meaningless" game.  One thing that caught my eye, and basically buttresses the opinion that Jeremy tried to point out to some of you hard heads this week is that the Panthers are indeed on the prowl for another receiver.

    Now go ahead and post threads to the effect that Gettleman is crazy and going around like Chicken Little for dare thinking that there may be a receiver worth picking up once all the cuts are said and done.

    And yet, our receiving corps lost to the junior varsity receiving corps in the playoffs last year (not that I underestimate Seattle's receiving corps, I am just going with the party line).

    Three drafts don't mean a thing. Surely it will take you at least 10 drafts to field a team that can win 10 games on a consistent basis.
    Edit: Oh, is 10 too much? How about 9 games?

    Brady's receivers are efficient at what they do. Very efficient. They also use a heavy dose of RBs in the passing game.  Just saying.

    You don't have to have a top 5 or even a top 10 defense to win a championship. And you certainly aren't going to win one with a receiving corps that consistently has trouble catching the ball, creating separation or averaging a 2.whatever-ish YAC.
