Denver wants a 1st round pick in this years draft . We don't have one. This receiver is not the type of player Richardson wants. Be unhappy about that all you want.
well, the draft is 2 weeks away.. they better get to work on getting rid of Marshall then..
after the fact, everything is up in the air.. and Marshall needs to fall somewhere in the Charlotte area..
being unhappy isn't really the point I'm getting across.. it's that we have the OPPORTUNITY to grab up a true #1 WR, this WR being one we WILL NOT find the same quality or even close anywhere this offseason or maybe next season or the season after because... Carolina doesn't go for big time FA? so then when will we get a strong #1? through the draft?... If Marshall isn't a logical choice, how in the world are you going to tell me the Panthers drafting a true #1 is a logical choice? It's been 5+ years.. certainly that "correct, logical thought" would have brought us something by now..
and I'm fairly sure we have the exact replica in Smitty as we have in Marshall concerning off the field issues (well, they are really on the field issues, just like Marshall)... there is no real difference between the 2 as far as "character" goes..
Really, Smitty has more knocks on him than Marshall.. so for BM not being "our kind of guy" is really not as big of a dispute as some would believe..
The guy wants paid.. seems harmless enough. Plenty of players in the NFL want paid. Pay the guy, at least he's not punching players in the locker room.. lol
I love Smitty.. I don't hold those incidents against him like others may and will do.. however, to tell me BM has character problems and JR isn't interested in "those players" doesn't add up to me.. To use that excuse is kind of talking out of both sides of the mouth..
This is primarily directed towards the FO since that is the foundation of what players will be brought in and which will not.. I realize you are just pointing out the opinion that since JR doesn't like a character issue guy, he wont' come in, so we shouldn't fret over it..
well, I'm fretting, because any excuse like he isn't our kind of guy is bullshit... he isn't TO, he isn't Smitty, he isn't Moss (minus somewhat quitting during TC)... pay the guy. you shouldn't have any issues.
and if he isn't gone by draft day.. a #1 in this draft is kind of out of question by 31 other teams in the NFL.. If the FO wants this guy, they'll find a way to get him..
sorry for rambling, it's late... and this issue is one I do take part in... we've only had 1 receiver for years.. it's annoying. here's a fuggin great chance to get a big time play maker. make it happen. off-field issues and excuses be damned.. Bolden is a good choice but Marshall isn't? They both created issues in the media over getting paid. this isn't anything new. Marshall, just like Bolden, has shown he will focus and play football regardless if he isn't happy. Regardless if he isn't #1 and has to work his way back into the roster..
the character issues are bullshit in my opinion... and he's young!
Him and Smitty would kill each other. Actually… No. Smitty would kill BM. Either way, I'll pass.
and I'm pretty sure this is the furthest from the truth...
