QBs get to take breaks when passing and running. WRs have to run each route all the way through even when they don't get the ball. He's in shape to be a Mobile QB, just not WR shape yet.

Guess they should have had him on treadmills all summer running 3+ hours at a time

Maybe Hurney meant that him and DJ have been hitting the bars together, and Edwards has been fall-down drunk since we drafted him.

I expect him to be able to run!, I know learning the position will take years. This is the nfl not high school football.


You mean like our second round pick that can't throw? This is the NFL, not Notre Dame.

I'm guessing Armanti had no idea how much running he was going to be doing as a WR in an NFL training camp... let's give the kid a break, we haven't even seen him play in a regular season game yet.

... and the Armanti debate rages on...

As a Panther fan I hope he can readily accelerate his development. Unfortunately, in the simplest terms, he doesn't "look" like an NFL position player to me. Sometimes we overanalyze. I think it's just not there for him. Hope I'm wrong.

Armanti doesn't have the Penningtonitis that Clausen does though. Kid has an arm.

Kinda like the rookie NASCAR driver that had problems turning left...

Kinda like the rookie NBA kid who had problems going to his right...

Kinda like the rookie MLB outfielder who could throw a mile but couldn't catch

Kinda like the rookie NHL winger who couldn't hit a slap shot from either side

lmao at people who compare "running shape" to "legs" and who cannot wrap their head around the drastic change of muscle memory and conditioning it would take for a QB to change to a WR all whilst moving up to the NFL. Even for a mobile QB this is a task.


we have some real dumb-asses here

Have we seen anything out of Armanti that would lead us to believe he is good...or even has potential...at the NFL level?

I think you wanna ask yourself that.

And since he has yet to be activated for an NFL game I am gonna guess the simple answer as "no"

Why do you ask?

the catch and run on 4th down in the last preaseason game for a first down.

displayed good hands as a reciever. at least fielded punts decently in the final preseason game. other than that no.

but has lafell shown anything either?

Was Edwards inactive because of the Sunday roster numbers game or was he inactive because Hurney said he "lost his legs?"

If it was because of numbers, okay. But if it was because he supposedly "lost his legs" why not simply use him as a situational WR, like a #3 or #4 because while he may not have the every-play, every-down legs under him, he still has the burst that made him a threat at QB and he's certainly showed the ability to catch a pass... at least during the pre-season.
