Funchess is a baby still, age wise

Doesn't matter. This is his third NFL season. It's time to put up or shut up. He needs to produce or he needs to stop wasting a roster spot.

Funches had a good season when he played #4 WR in his rookie year but when he was asked to play #2 and #3 WR he failed big time... catching only 23 passes for less than 400 yards in 16 games.  Funches started 7 games last season and did absolutely nothing. Benjamin had almost 1000 yards as number #2 and #1 and started 13 games.  Funchess is slow and not very good route runner.  He got completely shutdown by starting corners.

I think Funches is done...  he had an opportunity to shine last year and he blew it.  Drafting WR top 3 would basically say we throwing a towel of Funches...  he will be taking the #4 spot Brown used to hold.

Really?? It was only his sophmore year and the whole offense suffured from the Oline injuries..

He definetly gets another season..

Hell Bersin has had 5..

Honestly, he wasn't the #2 last year. Ginn was.

Funchess was #4 in snap counts at WR.

The fact that he couldn't beat out Philly and we weren't even willing to offer Philly a contract says a TON.

Funchess better be acting as if he's battling for a roster spot because honestly I think he may be.

Again we're talking about a guy going into his 3rd season.. He was the youngest WR on the team.. Atleast give him the same time you gave Brown to prove himself..

The difference is that Funchess as a former 2nd round pick was given a much better chance to get opportunities early on than Philly who was a UDFA.

Funchess has been hot trash. There's no way to sugarcoat it. It's time for him to produce or it's time to free up that roster spot.

So.. He was the youngest and least experience WR on the team.. Bersin couldn't beat Philly either and he got a offer so that thinking don't mean poo..

So the fug what.. We gave Lafell, Gettis,  Jarret and Donald more time than you're giving Funch.. And lets also remember he was making a position change From college since he was a TE..

2 years in the league isn't enough to form a opinion especially at the WR position.

Bersin probably signed a minimum offer because no one else wasn't interested. Philly was probably looking for more. Point being that it looks like the Panthers clearly decided that new blood was needed at WR.

In terms of opportunities, Funchess received 58 targets in 493 snaps. That's a target on 11.7% of snaps. He caught 39.6% of them.

Brown received 53 targets in 587 snaps. That's a target on 9% of snaps. He caught  50.9% of them.

How many fuging years does it take to learn how to do the job?  He regressed from his rookie year... he took a step back.  You cannot rely on him going forward.
