Coach: Protecting Cam top priority

48 posts in this topic

WR's that can separate also offer protection

 

 

True to a degree, but not when ball control is your philosophy and the running game is  the foundation for your offense with a dual threat QB.

Well when he says protecting him rather than getting weapons is more important I'm pretty sure he's talking about olineman

I have been preparing my mind for a day two WR for a few weeks now, so it's all good.

High pick on OL?

No problem here :)

prove it. so far they've done nothing to show they believe that and when they talk about even drafting a DT if he's the "BPA" @28, it leads you to believe it's just words.

you want me to believe protecting cam is paramount, do something. you want me to believe you want cam needs more weapons, do something. be willing to sacrifice a little...even on some minor level of talent...to make sure your actions back up your verbal dedication.

Exactly.  Fixing the O-line helps both running and passing games.  I believe if our running game was better last year, we would feel entirely different about our WR situation.   However a bad O-line made our passing game look worse.  If Cam wasn't such a talent we would be having a top 5 pick this year.

 

No. Our defense was so good we definitely would've won at least 7 even if we had some shitty QB like Eli or Flacco.

With time bad receivers flourish.

 

Don't agree with this statement. I have never ever seen a bad receiver flourish. They pretty much just stay bad.

 

 

I will give you this: the OL is probably our number one priority.  That being said, i still expect for us to pick the BPA.

Moreover, I also think that we will address the receiver position this year, just not necessarily in the first round (or possibly even the second round).  With the draft being deep, as G-man also believes, I think that the plan is to address WR this year.  Of course it may be more of a gamble waiting later, but we'll see how it all pans out come September.

The Panthers have no choice but to propagate this philosophy. It's sheer player preservation with Cam in the pocket trying to find a WR.... any WR.....

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
