    If I've learned anything as a Panthers fan over the years, it's to never take anything for granted in Week 1.  I've seen this team crap the bed more in Week 1 than an invalid on a Metamucil enema

    Bahaha, I just realized I was autocorrected for writing the T word.  Touche man, touche...

    I think the Bills would honestly rather roll with Tyrod Taylor than RG3 right now.
    There has been a confluence of a lot of events to get here (and RG3 shares plenty of the blame), but I really don't know if he fits in the NFL going forward.
    He obviously doesn't have the explosiveness in his legs to be a running threat, he is as injury prone as any NFL QB I have ever seen, he struggles reading defenses,and has no pocket awareness.  
    There is not a team in the league that would bring him in as a starter right now.
    At best, he needs to go to a team, get his head right (no pun intended), and put himself in a position to compete next year.  The question is, much like The Golden Calf of Bristol, who wants to bring the circus to town?
    The one advantage The Golden Calf of Bristol had and still has is that he is well liked, even if he is not talented enough to be a starting NFL QB.  I really think The Golden Calf of Bristol has accepted that and just wants to be on a team and help in any capacity- still don't see him making a team though,
    RG3 carries so much baggage... I believe some team will give him a chance given his pedigree, but I don't see him ever being a starter again.  And for a guy like him, I don't know if he can accept being a backup.
    The best chance he has IMO is with the Rams if Nick Foles struggles.  He could potentially be in the limelight again next year when the team is back in LA.

    Don't think he's the same after being hurt.  That being said, the bottom of the Lions WR depth chart is closer to the top of ours...

    By any objective measure, the WR corp is a mess.  It almost seems like last year when we lost Hardy it took the Dline weeks to break out of their funk.
    It could threaten to derail our entire season b/c the Panthers need to have a fast start given how much harder the schedule becomes after the first 4 games.
    Unfortunately, like John Fox used to say, there is no one coming to rescue us, and nobody is going to feel sorry for us.  
    There is no one great WR is going to be available from other team's cuts- maybe just a role player to add to a corp that is full of them.
    I can't see Gettleman trading for anyone either.
    For good or bad, we are going to have to count on someone from this group.  Scary thought... Especially given how good the defense and offensive line could be.

  7. Seltzer added a post in a topic Bortles better than Cam   

    Cam has led the team to the division title and the conference semifinals 2 years in a row. Of yeah, and he did win the whole Rookie of the Year thing.
    Bortles' arm pulled a Brian St. Pierre in his rookie year. Yes he has looked good this preseason and I think Jacksonville will not be a pushover, but Bortles had proven nothing. 
    It is insulting to compare them and definitely delusional to say he's better.
    I guess if your team hasn't made the playoffs in a decade, is a constant candidate for relocation rumors, plays the league's bitch by consistently having "home" games in London, and is the definition of irrelevant, you conjure up anything you can to make yourself feel better.

  8. Seltzer added a post in a topic Week 1 relevant - Jaguars DE Andre Branch to miss 'significant time,' with knee injury   

    Jacksonville has looked good on offense. Much much better than the Panthers have.
    Wouldn't hurt my feelings if their defense was a little undermanned week 1. We probably need it

  9. Seltzer added a post in a topic Had we known we could get Wegher as UDFA do we spend 5th on Artis-Payne?   

    Cameron Artis-Payne produced good numbers in the SEC and was definitely worthy of a 5th Round pick.  Wegher is a nice story (and definitely a diamond in the rough find by Gettleman), but in no way does Wegher's potential mean the CAP pick was bad.  Totally apples & oranges.  
    I am big-time Wegher supporter, but being able to pass protect is crucial in the NFL for any running back.  CAP has shown that ability in the best conference in college football, Wegher has not.
    I will be disappointed if we don't get to see Wegher at least get some reps with the 2's.  He does seem to have explosiveness that could make him special as a runner.
    To the bigger point about RB's, though, I do think it is valid that given the rule changes that favor the passing game and the running threat we have in Newton, it does seem logical that we would move away from drafting a RB with a high pick unless it is a truly special back (i.e. Adrian Peterson).
    Investing a pick in a WR in the first 3 rounds (like a lot of teams in the league do) on an annual basis will be nice.  I certainly could see that being the direction Gettleman goes once he finally cleans these hideous RB contracts off the books and builds some needed depth on the offensive and defensive lines.

    540 Row 19. Buzzed up on a few Hop, Drop, & Rolls and probably having the wife tell me to calm down it's only preseason if we start out with a couple of 3 and outs again

    Glad to see he cleared waivers.  Panthers should be able to give him a very low tender next year.  Low risk, high reward

    IMO you can be taught how to become a better tackler through technique (and hitting the weight room).  Speed is something that can't be taught.

    I'm hoping at the very least Tre Boston is brought in on those situations

  15. Seltzer added a post in a topic Shaq   

    So many teams have 3 WR in their base set that the default defense usually has 5 defensive backs.
    Having Shaq allows them to keep a true 4-3 look even when facing 3 receiver sets or 2 receivers + receiving TE (like Jimmy Graham in the slot.  It's true we are giving up a little size from the traditional strong side LB in a 4-3 scheme, but it is tradeoff designed with modern offenses in mind
    If you noticed last year, over half the time we only had TD and Luke as the linebackers with Colin Jones playing a lot of snaps.  I think Shaq can cover well plus he is a better tackler than someone the size of Colin Jones.  He will learn a lot playing beside 2 of the best LB's in the game.
