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.....

    • I've worked as an IT contractor for the state of Texas for the past 6 years. I do basic IT hardware support mainly supporting equipment that is a decade old and obsolete. I do stuff like requisition a new hard drive for a server and replace it. Or troubleshoot network problems. If I can't solve a problem I move the ticket up the chain. Pretty basic stuff. I'm currently studying for a CompTIA A+ certification and an MTA cert just to make my resume look better. I was given word that our contract with the state is not being renewed. It expires August 31, so I'm going to be laid off unless my company can find somewhere else for me to work. We've already laid off 10 people since this time last year and my team only has 3 people left on it. The work is drying up as the state moves more and more to virtual server technology so I'm like 99% sure I'm being let go. I'll probably get 4-5 weeks of severance and I can apply for unemployment. Austin has an insurance program for musicians I can apply for since part of my income comes from playing music. I've been trying to get a new job doing basic tech support or even call center type stuff but the jobs are either terrible, like want someone with the kind of experience I have but pay $12/ho and I won't be able to afford my rent, or they require stuff that is way over my head. I went to school for audio engineering at UNCA,. I didn't really intend on pursuing IT as a career, but music doesn't pay poo and I kind of have to go in this direction. I'm pretty depressed because I've been searching for a new job for years, and I've had interviews and whatnot, but the jobs either don't pay enough for me to leave my current position or they require stuff I don't have and/or want to pursue. I feel like I'm stuck in neutral. I'm almost 30 and I feel like my career hasn't gone anywhere and I'm going to be making just a little above entry level pay my whole life.  Anyone ever been in this situation before? How did you make your career take off, or find something you were passionate about and run with it?
