Chris Harris Traded For LB Jamar Williams

420 posts in this topic

Come on, dimbee. I've seen a few people who have insinuated that our secondary got better on account of Harris' poor coverage skills, but by and large I think Panthers fans are upset that he's gone, but also looking forward to see what Williams can do.

Several Bears fans have come on here and spoken highly of Williams, and they've been met with enthusiasm from Panthers fans.

I think he is talking about how Panthers fans view any ex-Panther after they sign with another team....

I guarantee you for every one person that is talking trash about Harris right now, there are between 10 and 20 who are said to see him go and still think highly of him, not only as a player, but as a person. Nobody's pooting on Harris around here.

Now Peppers, that might be another story.

Does this mean they don't plan on re-signing Thomas Davis?

That's what scaring me.

Is it just me or do these statements contradict each other?

My apologies. I forgot to include "to Panthers fans around here." Meaning when we sign a former Panthers player, according to Panthers fans here, the guy is garbage. I'm just saying that there is a history of this happening. I'm sure it probably happens on every team's board. I don't visit any other boards, as ironic as that is.

Yes. I left out a few words. I thought the premise of my statement would carry.

And I agree completely. All of the Panthers fans that I'm friends with and spoke with, and in some cases broke the news to, all were not happy to lose Chris. They all quickly followed up with something pertaining to his lack of speed in coverage. This makes me snicker as this was exactly what I said of him when he was traded to the Panthers 3 years ago. I said that he plays with a lot of heart, hits like a bull, but is a bit slow and can be a weakness in coverage. I was, of course, shot down by several youtube videos of him making a nice play, which put me in my place. :lol:

I guess the record speaks for itself at this point.

It will be interesting to see how much Matt Moore or whoever is QB tries to single him out and take advantage of that weakness.

I'm sure he will continue to be a stout hitter. I'll miss him on the Panthers squad..He's just another opponent when the game goes down. Peppers, on the other hand.......:rolleyes:

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
