Because we're sitting near the bottom of the waiver wire. I'd be willing to bet this "trade" is something like a condition 6th or 7th round pick (depending on Norwood's production). Deals like this for players heading toward the waiver wire usually are. Its usually a conditional pick just to jump you to the front of the line. If it is conditional and the dude bombs out, we've lost nothing. You guys are panting and gasping like Nippleshorts traded a 1st round pick and Luke Kuechly for him... lol.
Pretty positive that we worked him out prior to the 2014 Draft (sorry if this has already been noted). I was hoping we'd draft him last year. As one of the few who had a chance to see him play in person, dude was a great WR for Bama. Had 38 catches for Bama in 2013, 7 of which went for TDs. Great hands. Ran a 4.48 40 at the NFL combine. 6-2/200 lbs coming out of college. http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/kevin-norwood?id=2543689
For a WR body at absolutely no cost to anybody (outside of his salary), this is yet another potentially great rescue from the trash bin by Nippleshorts IMO.
Because this is a discussion board designed for people to talk about the things THEY want to talk about (within moderated parameters), not just designed to talk about the things YOU want to talk about? Maybe?
I love the guy who said that he wasn't a blind follower of what ESPN/the media fed him about Cam, but then went on to say that he was "notoriously immature in college". Outside of his one mistake buying a hot computer while at UF, Cam wasn't "notoriously immature in college". As a matter of fact, at Auburn, he was damn well the leader of that team. Additionally, just like in Charlotte, Cam "payed it back" by doing volunteer work with elementary school kids. "Notoriously immature"? Sounds like you are buying what the media is feeding you, brah. Additionally, he (or was it another guy) tried to again promote what we all know to be a lie... that Cam celebrates TDs while being way down in a losing effort. Cam, of course, did once celebrate a TD while being on the short end of the score in a losing effort (against the NY Giants). But, as we all know (at least the ones who pay attention and want to be fair), that was early in the 3rd quarter and the Panthers were still within two scores at the time. So basically the guy(s) so proud that he doesn't fall into the medias trap proved with every word he typed that he was a media sheep.
OP: We need to stop doing this thing. Me: I disagree. Why would we need to stop? You: Disagreeing with me. Imagine my confusion in thinking that by disagreeing with me, you were agreeing with the OP because I was disagreeing with HIM.
But what does that matter? Yeah, it matters in a place like the Huddle, where discussions pro and con go on for the sake of discussion. But it doesn't really MATTER because it doesn't (and never will) have any real EFFECT. Fan talk is fan talk... and if your coaches or management are swayed in any way by fan talk, then the team is in big trouble.
