I have to admit, that was a nice little wrinkle we threw in there. I don't want to give Davidson any credit for anything remotely intelligent because I don't think he's capable of such thought, but it must've been by design. I know teams said when Jake was here that if we sent Smitty in motion and he ended up at the slot when we snapped it that the throw was going to him...

What I liked about what you mentioned is that Smitty was already set at the slot before the snap most plays I remember in the 3 WR sets. It definitely leaves HUGE gaps in zone coverages to have both of them on the same side of the field.



Isn't it funny? From what I remember, all the local reporters wrote him off and said he looked terrible in TC. I actually remember a blurb on him being a bad route runner... lol. "LET'S GO TO THE TAPE!"

Meanwhile, I was telling everyone I had a good feeling about him and to watch out for him to make the roster and possibly play up to the #2 spot... Well, will you look at him now?

Also, a few of the guys from here that went to camp also said they didn't know why the local media were ragging on him b/c they saw some impressive plays out of him.

I'm really happy for him and hope to see much more of the same.


I think its possible that they were correct early on in camp from reports Gettis was not very good...I think it speaks to his hard work that he drastically improved over a short time.

They also had Gettis as like the 4th receiver in camp. Playing with Tony Pike and cotton headed ninny mugginer Hantwell. Shiit, when I was in camp DJ was making some plays, so it really doesn't matter.

edit: lol at the filter

True, but Gettis appears to know how to run a route.

Both good points. And from his interviews and improvement, it's hard to argue that he hasn't worked his butt off since he got here.

My prediction before and during TC was b/c:

1) The few games I had saw of him while at Baylor in his last year

2) His reported measurables (height, weight, 40 yd dash time, etc.)

3) The lack of a #2 WR already on the roster

4) A lack of faith in LaFell coming in and being that #2 guy

So, I figured it was pretty much wide open. If he came and the coaches weren't already set on playing a guy, then he had the chance to play and contribute big time if he worked. I'm glad I was right.

Also, I'll talk crap about Hurney and Fox a lot, but I have to admit that although I believed in Gettis, I wasn't sure that I trusted them to let him play this much, this early b/c of the costs of other guys "ahead of him" (LaFell, Edwards, DJ). So I wasn't sure they'd give him a fair shake. I'm glad they did. And I'm glad DJ enjoys alcohol.

The Funny Part of yesterday was that Smith was are worst WR. Not only did he have a drop, but a fumble, and a Penalty.

Over/Under on Gettis DWI charge and/or marijuana possession arrest?

It's not so much the film as the fact that opponents will be focusing on him as a threat.

Well that's exactly what we want. If they're focusing on Gettis, then Steve Smith will get some one on one opportunities and the safeties will be more reluctant to sneak up to the LOS to defend the run.

This is what everybody has wanted for years, and it's a great thing. Only Panther fans could find the negative in this situation.:rolleyes:

Tim Ryan made an interesting point in the Fox broadcast, that LaFell is being asked to learn 3 WR positions during this season while Gettis is only focusing on one. So I think that might have something to do with Gettis showing more progress and potential in his role than LaFell. It remains to be seen, of course, how these two players will do in the long run, but it's nice to see a player with the physical tools of Gettis being given the opportunity to put them to use without too much unnecessary learning right off the bat.

I don't know about that, but if people are thinking that it's a bad thing that our opponents have another WR they have to prepare for, then those people can't feel good about anything, and I feel sorry for them.

i don't know if i rep the majority, but i've got a lot of other things in my life to be happy about that that i don't need to glaze my eyes and obfuscate logical breakdown of panther related subjects so i can feel happy about them
