    Definitely not reading all of that, but I read a bit.
    What you said about a guy just standing out, especially at a small school, reminded me of watching Roddy White at UAB.  Back when I was in college I watched a TON of college football.  Roddy White was a guy I was very high on and then he played his way into the 1st round and then those damn falcons drafted him.  Sucked, because I knew they'd landed a damn good one.
    Here recently, that guy was DeAndre Hopkins at Clemson.  Being a UNC fan, I still watch a decent amount of ACC football and the guy always stuck out.  Roddy White was actually the comparison I made to him when he was entering the draft.

    For all I know, he may be the nicest guy in the world, but he is a terrible reporter and writer.  I don't see how that can be argued.

    He doesn't have to be great, I just hope he's better than what we currently have.  This WR unit needs to be upgraded and I hope we don't have to wait until the off season to do it.

    The only reason Brown's spot is guaranteed is due to the fact that our WR corps is a combination of unproven and injured (KB and Funchess) and pure, unadulterated hot trash (the rest of the group).
    Going into the season, I was hopeful about our WR corps, but that was because KB was looking like a beast and looked poised to potentially emerge as an elite NFL WR and Funchess looked good in camp.  I figured if we had those two, guys like Ginn, Brown, etc. could be given room to be good enough.  Then KB got hurt, Funchess has a lingering bad hammy and hasn't been able to get badly needed work in, Brown developed the yips and can't catch a cold and now all of a sudden our potentially promising looking WR corps now looks even worse than last year's unit.

    What has Brown done in training camp or preseason THIS SEASON to show he deserves a roster spot?  I'm not saying definitely cut him.  I'm simply saying that he shouldn't be considered a lock.  I really hope we continue working on shaping our WR corps because honestly, Brown and Bersin are the Bell and Chandler of WRs.  They're guys who wouldn't make most NFL rosters, but our fanbase wants to believe they can be an answer for us.  They just keep making our roster because we have the worst WR corps in the NFL.

    For guys who teams have little invested in(guys like Brown and Williams), it shouldn't be about potential you've shown in the past, it should be what you've shown NOW.  What have you done NOW?  Nothing?  Well, bye.  Guys go undrafted for a reason.  It's because no team deemed them worthy of a draft pick.  If they work out (Norwell), then it's a very welcome surprise.  The vast majority don't and just because you filled in for a few games last season and did alright doesn't mean you're a lock for the next decade.

    If Brown isn't on the bubble, he should be.  He's been horrific through this preseason and lots of reports of drops in practice too.  This guy isn't a former top pick we have a lot invested in, he's a former undrafted free agent.  He has no special skills nor special size.  He doesn't contribute on special teams.
    In short, he's a guy who absolutely SHOULD be on the bubble.  This fanbase way overrated his contributions last year.  He was a welcome surprise as a WR, but it wasn't like he set the world on fire.

    Significantly concerned.  Anytime a big man starts having recurring foot issues it's concerning.

    Well, to be fair, I simmed this season and we ended up with the #4 overall pick in 2016.  That's the pick I traded for Watt - #4 overall.

    Bought the game on Friday and seriously considering returning it.  I agree with the previous poster who said it feels like an arcade game now.  The computer completes passes at an absurd rate while my guys drop passes left and right.  Which, honestly seems realistic as all get out for the Panthers if I hadn't already revamped our WR corps (and traded 2016's 1st rounder for J.J. Watt who was listed on the trading block).  Meanwhile, their RB seemingly breaks 3-4 tackles on every carry.
    I'll give it a little more time since I have 15 days to return it, but right now I'm not digging it at all.  I've seen others complaining about the ease of throwing INTs but I'm not having an issue with that at all.

    After the subpar at best reports about him coming out of camp, his actual preseason play has been a pleasant surprise.
