again, you are comparing 2 things that can't be compared to do the fact Gettlemen just drafted them. They could be gone and out of the league and same time frames they disappeared after Hurnet stated them
Meh...much less pressure on Philly than when going against the Patriots starters. Him catching balls won't really do much for me. I'd like to see Norwood in the first q considering that would be the best possible competition he could find.... but this should be a backup game. Outside of rising or falling on our depth chart I am not sure anyone can prove much b/c the competition should be light from the jump.
wow....talk about a gigantic reach. LOL! Tom Brady is literally already the GOAT or behind Montana pending who you ask. So yeah, given that....one could say you could gamble a little more than in other situations. Would be like having Reggie White still near his prime....you probably could afford to get by with less and not miss anything.... in no logical way is that in any way a Cam diss. Average targets? Who has average targets? Can sure as heck doesn't...
didn't sign up to play a game....you said name anyone that was still around that wasn't a first rounder that was good from Hurney.... so I named Kalil, Johnson and Norman and of course Gettlemen has guys still on the roster....Hurney had a lot too in the 1-3 year window after they were drafted. Not sure what you are even trying to prove going down that road....that would be a long list for Hurney. Doesn't mean anything.
like I said, it wasn't until Cam's 4th season they added the first "Cam" piece... you acquire young talent to grow with your young QB. You don't just say, well....we got a old guy we drafted back in the George Seifert days that was good so Cam should be good to go for awhile. LOL. I really don't need all the excuses and reasons why. What Carolina did basically unmatched. Name franchise QB that their team waited until year 4. Everyone got problems. Carolina has just been odd and slow about it. Is what it is.
some of his stuff is on point like.... we are getting older at spots to try to stay competitive ....that one is just a fact. Take our secondary. Half our back four now consists of a 34 and 32 year old also, he didn't say Gettlemen didn't draft some talented guys. I assume he is referring to something like our most recent first round pick. Pre draft we arguably had the best 4-3 LB corps in the NFL.....with a team full of holes. We then use that first round pick on....a LB. That doesn't mean Shaq wasn't talented. There is some solid thoughts in there even if you disagree with most of it.
I don't even know what Rivera "ball" is. The longer he is here the more confused I get. At least with Foxy I knew what he was about. Understood it. Didn't really agree with it. But he was what he was and I understood what we were about under him.
Balanced teams? I think Miami, Denver are two more examples who have a shot at being pretty balanced. I'd add Philly in there too. All those teams could have strong offenses and defenses IMO. Philly is a weird one though b/c stats could be odd. But if Chip gets it rolling they should make big plays on both sides.
