Color me inspired...a very well-written post. It's as if you know him personally.

Must spread rep around before giving to LP again.

Very good points :thumbsup:

I've been in a position of wondering about my health before, and it does a lot to clarify what's really important.

i think jerry has a lot more foresight than fans give him credit for. it's easy to want a championship NOW and cost yourself the future trying to get it. i think jerry's plan all along has been to set this team up for financial success and that dynasty in the future, even if it means a few speed bumps right now.

Very well-written post, ladypanther. You definitely come across as someone who knows JR and his thoughts on a very personal level.

I hope that everything turns out the way you envision it!

Said in the other thread that I have no problem with the strategy, with the exception that it would have been better to dump Fox this season rather than endure the lame duck year.

I can understand why he would have decided not to, though.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

      Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
