We'll be happy to have Kelvin Benjamin come Week 17 with the playoffs on the line and Benjamin is playing his best football, while old man Smith will be out with a knee injury because he is 35 years old.

Where this really falls short is trying to make us feel bad about losing LaFell.



that was the part where i stopped reading and started giggling

Watch the replay. I don't think it was intended for him.

Also LaFell's problem isn't what he catches, its what he doesnt catch.


Lafell's problem isnt just what he drops, it's his inability to consistently beat even the most turdy of defensive backs.

Newton made him look better than he was and a number of reports out of new england have suggested such.


not to mention his current position on their depth chart.

Here are Smitty, LaFell, and Ginn's numbers from last year:

745 yds, 4 TD
627 yds, 5 TD
556 yds, 5 TD

Can Benjamin, Cotchery, and Avant match that? I say yes. And that ignores the younger guys who could also surprise. Don't get me wrong, I think Smitty should have been here until he retired. But he's not, and I'm not worried about our receivers relative to last years group...both groups would be considered at or near the bottom of the league.

What I find interesting is that everyone is saying how bad the Panthers offense was in 2013.  However, this team went 12-4 and won the NFC South.  The point is when you have a strong/dominating defense, you don't have to have overpowering offense to win in the NFL.  Having a great offense may make the game more fun to watch, but the Panthers won 12 games last year with an 'anemic offense'.

Strange all the articles I am reading are saying he is making catches and becoming a "go to guy" for Brady.
