ESPN reporter says his opinion is that Vick...

107 posts in this topic

So... I'm curious as to where all this ESPN, Vick to Panthers talk originated from? I'm sure several employees from ESPN just didn't pick it out their ass... or did they. If this was done for ratings on their half, I'm sure saying Dallas was his main option would have been a lot better.

I've been wondering the same thing through all of this Vick talk. I mean did they just sit around at a table and come up with a list of possible choices to talk about? What is their rhyme or reason? And why us? They have never wanted to say anything about the Panthers until now...I'm :confused5:

That one is easy. Bad game in playoffs means we are desperate for a QB, pure and simple.

So desperate, we addressed that in the draft... oh wait... so desperate we wouldn't ever think of a Delhomme extension... oh wait.. yea, I'm not buying that reason. I think Michael Smith just seen us on the highlight screen that they were showing of Vick and threw our name out there. Now that I can believe.

We win in spite of Jake not because of him. Atlanta won because of Vick not in spite of him.

Mort mentioned the Panthers as a team with a strong infrastucture and QB in place.

Now thats a good arguement.

Jake is not consistent enough to get us a Super Bowl. He threw 3 ints against Tampa last year and 4 against Oakland. He threw 3 against Seattle in the NFC Championship in 05. When hes good hes good not great. When hes bad hes terrible. His QB ratings ranged from 12 to 129 last year.

Now, did I say that it's the prevailing feeling among those who strongly follow the Panthers. No, I didn't and never would. I said that a talking head up in Stores, Conn. that doesn't really pay too much attention would draw that conclusion. And many of our fans seem to as well, but not me, not me.

So quit getting so fired up, there's a big difference between someone up in Stores making a statement and their buddies piling on and those that actually know a thing or two about the Panthers. Kinda makes you wonder if we're getting the truth about any teams out there, I've been of that mindset for years. Guess I should have expanded my post a little more to make myself clear of my position...

Yeah and I agree with him. But the last couple of days there has been a lot of talk about how Mort has turned into an idiot. I don't think so, but others have certainly chimed in to say things of that nature...

Vick's a weapon that team's have to scheme to handle...combine that with D-Will and J-Stew and Steve Smith...my goodness.

He does not have to replace Delhomme to be on the field in some capacity.

Do I think it would happen with JR as owner, no, I don't.

But then, stranger things have happened.

If the Panthers did pick him up, and he's very cheap right now, and if he did well, there could be trade possibilities.

Again, not discussing any moral issues here...just looking at him as a commodity.

After I heard 2 different reports say that Carolina would be a perfect fit for him, I actually thought about it. At first it was just every 30 sec was an update on whats hes doing, what hes eating and where he's shopping so it was annoying hearing his name. now i realy thought about him in Carolina blue just running around the field. You know he will have that amazing 60 yard TD, but at the same time he will have 2 late game picks. Im not for or against bringin him in. whatever happens happens.

Im just sick of people calling him a "Wildcat Quarterback". A quarterback thts behind center running the wildcat is just a QB Sneak. Its the same as 80% of the plays he ran with Atl. So how people expect him to come in the league aftrer a 2 year absence and just take over is beyond me. Hes a good athlete and below average qb

If he comes here no way in hell is he playing QB. Maybe for trick plays and wild cat but thats about it. I'd love to have a player like Vick's ability but it would be very hard for me to accept him on the team. I think he's a pos for what he did and until I can really see that he is truely remorseful, then maybe I could remotely forgive him for his actions. But to be honest I don't really see the purpose in bringing him in. We are already going to have to work Goodson into the line up, Jarrett is on the rise, Munnerlyn can do KR, Moore is developing and Robinson is coming back. We have enough weapons already to get by without him and then some.
