    Gettleman isn't going to panic 4 days into training camp.  If Oher gets abused like a ragdoll in the first preseason game, then I think we'll be open to some additional possibilities.  Jake Long is currently unemployed for a reason.  He's probably wanting a lot of money and he probably wouldn't mind missing out on training camp as an added bonus.  Somebody around the league will get hurt or some team will realize the answer isn't on the roster and he'll eventually get a call from a team willing to put enough money on the table to get him off the couch.  Maybe that team will be us and maybe it won't.  I wouldn't bet much money on it.

    We really don't know how Gettleman will approach free agency in the future.  We know how he's approached it while we've been relatively cap strapped with contracts that need to be shed, but I wouldn't necessarily just assume that is how he will always approach free agency.
    With that said, if Okung did hit the open market, I wouldn't expect us to be major players in that sweepstakes.  A plug and play top 10 LT in the prime of his career?  He'll get PAID.

    They probably won't restructure Lynch.  With his age and number of carries, he's due to fall off a cliff in production any day now.

    They can structure it to make it work.  Lynch's contract will probably be dropping off in two years anyway.  He's 29 and everyone knows what happens to RBs at 30.

    I'd love it, but probably won't happen.  Elite QBs and elite LTs almost never hit the open market.

    Disappointing to hear about Ealy.  I didn't like the pick at the time but was hoping for the best.  Still am.

    I'm not a huge fan of having a starter at one position being the primary backup for another.  If something happened to Kalil, instead of just having to adapt to a new guy at C, the OL would have to adapt to two changes - new C and new RT.
    That's assuming that Remmers will be the starter at RT.

    Ginn is highly likey to be the 3rd or 4th WR on the depth chart.

    Unless we change our philosophy, I don't see how it makes sense to keep 6-7 WRs.  We rarely go 5 wide and Olsen is always in there on passing downs, so we rarely have more than 3 WRs on the field at a time.  If that remains the case, which I almost certainly think it will, keeping 6-7 WRs isn't a good move.

    For the record, I fully reserve the right to panic if during the preaseason Oher is waving defenders through like a cop directing traffic.

    Seems like most are deeply divided on Oher.  Some want to disregard any negative and blindly hope he's the answer.  Some have already made up their mind that he sucks and we're going to have a turnstile at LT again.
    We're 4 days into training camp.  Calm down folks.  Lots of guys are going to have some ups and downs through camp.  I want to see some preseason game action before I get too concerned or too excited.

    Star iced up and carted off.  Not good.  Not good at all.

    This.  Living out here in CO, I used to have access to free Broncos suite tickets for virtually every home game through work.  Went to plenty and never once wore any Panthers gear.  Didn't even occur to me to do so.

    I think we probably try to stash this guy on the PS this year.

    Not encouraging, but not time to panic yet.
