I'm SO tired of people blaming Jarrett's shortcomings on Jake. Jake had one horrible season. Not three. Hurney said it himself in his interview on WFNZ: it's up to him (Jarrett) if he starts.

That means one thing and one thing only, he has yet to earn the trust of the coaching staff and the QB (no trust means you WILL lock in on other targets). If he had come to practice prepared and ready to go...Jake would have felt more comfortable throwing his way and Davidson would've designed more plays going to DJ. That didn't happen. The kid just doesn't have it and may never find it.

Don't blame his lack of playing time on Jake. That's retarded.


The oppurtunities that jarrett has been givin he has capitalized on them, but obviously u haven't noticed that. Jake is to blame bc for the past 3 yrs (other thaan the '07 season that he was out due to injury) he has only focused on 1 receiver and that is smitty. Jarrett doesn't have to be a burner he can make the catch in traffic apparantly our FO doesn't notice that. And so what if his first TD came 3 yrs into his career, he'd have many more if we used him in the redzone. But that's not the style of football our organization plays when we get into the redzone we run the ball down the other teams throat. Jarrett won't be a highlight reel player for long TDs but when it comes to spectacular catches he's the man. That's all its gotta take for blind fans to notice a players ability is to see it on a highlight reel. And that's a damn shame.

yeah, although he wont be able to wear his college #(44) in the NFL.


Yea the pro rules are retarded sometimes, we could always draft him and then pencil him in our roster as a backup fullback so he can keep his number and play fullback when we are on the GL...That would be awesome having dwill and jstew running behind a huge defensive lineman for the score

WHOA. Uptown Girl lets get the facts straight. Jarrett was drafted in 2007. Do you remember that nightmare of a season? Jake went out with Tommy John and we had a revolving door of David "Lemon" Carr, Vinnie Testeverde and Matt Moore. The next year our modus operandi was run, run, then run it some more. Jake had an average year till the playoffs when he flat out sucked. In 2009 Jake had a hangover from the Playoffs and continued to suck. So Jarrett has hardly had a fair shot with a decent consistent QB. Jarrett will likely step up as the number 2 but we still need to use that 2nd on the BEST WR/KR available. Jarrett would be better used as a possession receiver and a speedster draft pick CAN make an impact in his rookie year as a return guy and deep threat.

just to clarify I'm not on Jarret, but sounds like steve smith sounds like he is . He has more insight than anyone else on this board when it comes to that. Secondly if he or smitty gets injured then we need another reciever to be able to step in and help. W.R. is one of the best positions to draft in the 2nd round, especially this year if the mocks i've read are any indication. I like Damian Williams alot because he played in a pro style offense, is built right and can return kicks as well. I like Lafell second to him.

The BPA thing is abunch of b.s if that were the case then if c.j spiller fell to us then we'd draft him. The BPA is really for later round picks that are more of a crapshoot. Drafting a reciever with the 2nd pick is the only oprion we have left aside from trading for good # 2. I wouldnt be opposed to that but the panthers have built this team thru the draft and will more likely continue to do that. Also think of all of our trades up, they were'nt because the bpa fell, it was because they saw value in a player that fit a need for us. Hope this clarifies the matter a lil more for you


I want you to answer me a few questions

If the BPA theory is B.S. then why did we select Ryan Kalil in the 2nd round?

or

Why did we select Dan Connor in 3rd when it wasn't a need?

To answer your question, THEY WERE THE BEST PLAYER AVAILABLE

so to say that WR is our only option is pretty flawed, if there is a player at a position that is undoubtably better then any talent alone then they will take a risk... to some extent.

If you really want to base it off of needs then our weak point is at the QB position because all we have behind Moore is Hunter Cantwell, who has been on the practice squad up to the point where Jake "went down" and they had to elevate him. No McCown, No Feeley, and No Jake... Where is the depth?

One could argue that we have no depth at WR too, however, I am inclined to say that we atleast have a little depth there with Jarrett and Moore. Am I saying that they either of them will make an impact? Not at all but to me it seems to me it would be logical, from the team's standpoint, to take a position other then WR.

Also, if they select a QB, keep in mind that we already have a clear starter going into camp and his name is Matt Moore so it isn't like a rookie QB will start whereas a rookie receiver may have to start beside Smitty because there is no clear #2 as of yet.

So pretty much what I am trying to tell you is that there is no way in telling who Fox and Hurney will select but I wouldn't rule out other positions because you think they are not a need.

Just my two cents...

Ok the first 2 rounds you go based off of bpa thats of a need. in rounds later than that you dont expect any immediate contribution so at the point you take the Dan conor's. Kalil was a need when we drafted him. I did'nt say W.R was our only option but looks to be the mose likely.

And then finally. We could draft a QB, if one they really liked dropped to them, but logically speaking no qb we get with the 48th pick is going to be ready to back matt moore up nearly as well as the qb's who will be on the market as a F.A.

You're an idiot. You honestly think our FO is too stupid to notice that Jarrett is a superstar, and that Jake has 100% trust in him...but just can't figure out how to unlock his eyes off Smith. That's sad.

So as a rookie, Jarrett sucked with four different quarterbacks, is that what you're saying? He did manage to snag 6 of 285 team receptions that year. And in a year when Jake threw for over 3,100 yards, Jarrett got 10 out of 246 team receptions. And last year, all because of Jake, Jarrett caught 17 out of 264 team receptions. And Kasay can't kick touchbacks because of Jake, and it's Jake's fault that Foster had fumble-itis, and it's because of Jake that Peppers wanted to leave, and if it wasn't for Jake every free agent we ever signed would have gone to the pro-bowl. I get it now.

Dwayne Jarrett has superstar written all over him. :cheers2:

I understand where people get the idea that Jarrett might turn into a great WR. I hope you are right because the team could sure use another good WR.
He did look good burning NO backup DB's for a TD last year.

However, there was one moment last year that pretty much told me everything I needed to know on why Jarrett doesn't see much PT. When we played NE, Moose got called for and illegal motion TWICE because Jarrett didn't know where to line up.

ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!!!!!! You have been with a team for 3 years and you don't know where to stand before the snap? You have been playing football since middle school and you don't know if you should be "on" or "off" the ball?
That is when I knew Jarrett is probably going to be a bust.

Those poor folk in Cleveland won't know what to do when Jake keeps throwing them towards Charlotte...

and just to add the BPA philosophy, is an elite offensive tackle or RB is on the board when we pick I bet you we would pass on them in favor of W.R. who may not be ranked as high.

We drafted Kalil when we had Hartwig, who was coming off injury but who had just gone to the pro-bowl with Tennessee. When we took Connor it was a big WTF??? moment for fans everywhere.

The Panthers will take the BPA unless that player doesn't fit, and if that happens they'll trade down. That's what they did a few years ago when we got Beason.

Yes, Dick Eye, I did forget that Jake wasn't there all 16 games in 2007. Not too sure how I did but that doesn't matter. Jarrett STILL has to show the coaches and the QB that he is READY to play. I don't care if Tom Brady or Lou Ferrigno is the QB (or Carr, Vinny, Moore in 07)...Jarrett will play more when he shows the team he's trustworthy. Kenny Moore started over him for crying out loud last year. And we've been a run team for a while now, that's no excuse. We still had to pass it.

I'll gladly eat crow if the only thing missing in the Jarrett equation was a "good" QB. But will you when Moore to Jarrett doesn't net the stats you think it will? No, you'll say he'll be good...next year.
