1st: Cut QB Jake Del-oops. Thanks to the CBA in limbo Carolina is able to take a mulligan on the bad contract they inked w/ Jake and not suffer the financial consequences they would've any other yr w/ a cap in place.

2nd: If u own the rights to DE Peppers trade the guy for picks, if not let the man go it's not worth the headache any more.

Lastly seeing as how this is a perfect year to start a rebuilding fase if need be. If not the draft is deep in OL & DL talent that if u can shore up those 2 lines then you could be very strong.

Carolina already has the stable of RB's, only needs to add a complimentary WR, and possibly draft Smiths future replacement to groom behind him, add a pass catching TE via FA (which there are plenty coming available), and bring in a talented Vet QB (Also plenty could be had) Chad Pennington anyone to hold down the forth while you wait for 2011 to draft your next franchise signall caller, or perhaps u can grad one late in the draft

As far as dropping Jake, as the owner of our company frequently says when we get a little frivolous or risky with the company finances, "You guys gotta remember, we're not playing with Monopoly money here."

This team doesn't need to 'rebuild' we've got some damn good talent. If we start Moore and get another good WR look for us to make some major noise!

They are not going to cut Delhomme. Like it or not, they owe him too much money just to let him walk. He can impart a lot of knowledge into the qbs and will be the back up.

We are set at TE. We have three on the roster and they can all catch the ball fine. Since Fox has been here we just dont throw to the TE very much. In eight years that hasnt changed. Do you really think its going to now?

we need a capable qb (hopefully it is moore), or at least draft a qb as an insurance policy. get a compliment wr and we are back in the hunt. I dont think that would be considered rebuilding.

We need to get the best available receiver in the draft. After that all we need to do is resolve the Peppers situation and make sure the DL is ready to go. Other than that we should be ready to make a possible Superbowl run.

Why is everyone always busting on our TE's? What's wrong with them? They catch the very few passes thrown their way.

We don't need to rebuild, we just need to transition at a few positions like QB, DT, WR and potentially DE.

If there is no cap, then cutting Jake would make sense - but it ain't gonna happen. I believe it when I hear Clayton and others say that Jake will be the incumbent starter when camp opens this year, but I also think it will be a truly open competition and Moore will get the chance to beat Jake for the starting job. The concern here is that there have been questions about how Moore practices, the rap on him is that he's a "game time" player and is not particularly impressive in practice. If Moore thinks he has an honest shot at the starting job, he may become a better practice player.

We need to identify who the starters will be at DT and that may mean we transition Kemo out. He's decent, but he's not worth the $ we owe him and we have a surplus of DT's at the moment.

I love Moose, but it's time for us to replace him at the #2 WR spot. That may mean brining in a FA # 1 and pushing Smith to # 2 or it may mean drafting a # 2 but a 37 year old WR cannot be part of our long-term plans and so far Jarrett hasn't convinced us he can be that # 2 guy. It's not to say he can't, but we are so thin at WR right now we need an insurance policy.

If we let Peppers walk without receiving any compensation, which I suspect is the most likely scenario - then we need to either hand Brown, Johnson and Brayton the keys or bring in a FA like Vanden Bosch or Kampman to allow Brown and Johnson more time to develop. Personally, I'm in favor of going young here given that both Brown and Johnson have shown promise - but if we can get a good deal it would probably make sense to bring a guy like Vanden Bosch or Kampman in as insurance.

Totally agree! This team has potential to make the playoffs next year with what we have... plus some help at the Wide Reciever position, and possibly get a defensive end to add depth. Delhomme will be on this team next year no questions, Moore will be back also unless a team is willing to give a first and a third round pick for him because thats what tender Carolina will give him. Maybe keep McCown, or bring in a young quarterback to groom for the future, so our quarterback position is taking care of. The defense was playing great at the end of last year, and they should try to keep that group together for the most part. Altough they have to do something about all the Defensive Tackles on the roster.
