Doesn't "long term" and "project" kind of coincide?

Anyhow, the point is that you only have so many draft choices each year. Some are made to make immediate impacts while others are made for subsequent years. We HAD to address WR this year, it was perceived by many to be the one missing piece to our offense. We did this. We drafted Lafell, Gettis and Guy all players with College WR experience and took a flyer on Edwards as a project.

We drafted some DB's late in the draft like usual and if things don't pan out it will be addressed year to year. So look for CB's to be big on next years board if things continue as they are, along with OL depth.

Your sceaming about immediate needs but at the same time pandering for draft picks for the future. Can't have both. Marshall isn't under contract for next year, but he is for this year. He was here we can draft a replacement next year if we feel the need. You see how this works?



Do you even understand what you are typing?


You don't take a flyer on a player with a second round draft choice, especially when you are rebuilding....good lawd.


We do need immediate needs, but much more importantly we need that second round pick next year. It was a bone head move, just like the EB pick.

Do you understand what you wrote? You don't "rebuild" in one draft. It takes at MINIMUM two.They wanted Edwards for their future plans, he was in this past draft so they did what they needed to to get him by trading a pick in next years draft. So essentially he's a pick up for next year. I don't understand how this is so hard to understand.

and AE is not activated will you consider his selection a complete failure? With Mike Williams and Geno Atkins on the board when we traded up I certainly would.

Patience is required with this draft pick.

Thats retarded. He is a second round pick, he should be in the probowl for 10 straight years, including his rookie season. Anything less and he is a bust.

We have 2 Wide Receivers out. If we don't activate him and he sees the field then he was a garbage selection and the FO now believes it too.

Name a WR we have selected under Fox that panned out?


...David Gettis?

You really think he's panned out?

Man, I guess we Carolina fans don't expect much from our receivers anymore.

It was a stupid pick, I said it when we got him and I'll say it again. We needed O line help and we picked a project that at this point is worthless. The sad part is we gave another pick for him. We could have gotten a RG or RT that could be contributing now and we would not be 0-4.
Oh wait here is an idea if you want a punt returner how about draft a f**king player who returns punts in college. Seriously, that's what other teams do, they draft players that play the same or similar positions in college and guess what, it usually works.
Once again Fox trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.
I will be glad when we clean house.
Oh and one more rant, all this wasted time,pick,frustration when the whole fuging time we had a good returner on the roster in Mike Goodson. If they didn't have poo for brains they would also line him up as a receiver more.
