I’m a newbie to this forum but not to other Panthers boards. But I have been reading the comments on here for several years now. I was just wondering why all the hate on here for Edwards. Do you haters want him to fail? What purpose does it serve if he does fail? All it would do was make the haters feel better about themselves but it hurts the TEAM in the process. Whether you wanted him or not we drafted him, he is on the team now, and if you were a true fan you want everyone to do the best they can for the team so we can win. Isn’t that what is most important in the end? I hope the kid turns out to be a great player or even a good player. He seems to have a great heart and only wants to play the game, no matter what they ask him to do. This seems to put him way ahead of a lot of the “I’m only out for me” group of idiots that are on every team around the league. I would take one player any day who is excited just to be able to play over a dozen who are only in it for themselves. I hope Edwards succeeds, but if he doesn’t, I don’t believe it will be from lack of effort. If he is successful, however, I only hope all the people who have been putting him down since before the draft will have the guts to come on here and admit they were wrong. Only time will tell on both counts. Good Luck to the Panthers for the upcoming season and good luck to all the players on the team, including Armanti Edwards.

By "hood" he means black.

Well not really, because the word "hating" has hit mainstream American where you can find it being used on Sports Center, Local Fox stations, and commentators from all ethnic backgrounds. For future references pm me to get an idea of what I mean.

OK…OK…I give….I was wrong. There was no putting down of Edwards ever on this forum, just of the front office, the school I attended and played at in the 80’s and the level of competition Edwards played against. I believe one member called it “4 more years of high school”. I guess that ticked me off a little since there have been plenty of successful players in the NFL from FCS (1-AA) football and there are several college divisions below FCS before we get to 4 more years of high school. I apologize to everyone on here and you don’t have to worry, I won’t be putting a post on here anytime soon since I leave in two weeks for my third tour in Afghanistan. I’ll carry my Panthers banner proudly with me and hope for a great season.

That thread started before we drafted him.

Edwards is unathletic and bad at football. See signature for evidence.

i dont remember anyone hating on edwards. as a matter of fact, most people, including myself, are probably overhyping the poor kid. if he's half as good as i think he is going to be, then he will be a pretty awesome addition.

in reality, we paid a high price for him, but i see it like this, if we had waited to pick him in the 4th round, the cards wouldnt have fallen in the right place to end up with Norwood and Hardy.

and so far armanti seems to be justifying himself according to anyone who has seen him up close in practice. i think that he is just a good natural athlete all around, and will be good catching or throwing or whatever you ask of him.

I already dug up my Armanti thread to embarrass hater folk; we're in this thing together now. Even scouting heads are guilty of poor judgment from time to time. Mike "Burger-Time" Williams was once a consensus top-15, and I agreed.

There was also a highlight-reel grab by Armanti Edwards, but those are becoming more common with each practice.


that's whats up.. get ready for a fun training camp folks.. let's see what the kid has got. I can't wait.

I absolutely hated the trade for him but I dont hate Edwards the player. I still cant beleive we gave up so much compensation for a guy that Hurney admitted himself was a project player. I hope like hell he pans out but I have serious doubts. Im certainly not going to buy the hype til he proves himself. We heard all the hype about Mike Goodson last year only to be disappointed. This could be potentially worse though since we gave up a potential high 2nd rounder for him.

So as of right now Im saying New England absolutely destroyed the panthers on this trade until Edwards proves otherwise.

For those beating up on firemoose, "Hating" is hood rhetoric for against, dislike, jealousy, envy, sweating, mocking, bitterness and etc.


By "hood" he means black.


Rofl both posts were completely hilarious, with the first being completely on accident.
