if we end up with the number one pick, i honestly think that the best thing to do is to draft Luck. of course, that will be up to the new coach though.

the truth is that the panthers have neglected the QB position for a decade, and the roster needs some serious help at the position.

worst case scenario, is for clausen to turn out to be the better of the two, and we end up with luck as QB2, grooming him for the future.

the scenario i like is for Luck to do a good job, and turn out to be the "franchise QB" that we have never had in Carolina. Then, we keep jimmy as a back-up, and give him some more time with the new playbook, and let him develop his confidence again.

every elite QB needs a young elite wr so I say get AJ Green

how exactly do we lose out with Clausen becoming an elite QB? that seems nonsensical; this defense may not be great but if Clausen suddenly become Peyton Manning and started putting up 30 points a game we WOULD win some.

If Clausen becomes elite I can't see a purpose for getting luck. I know people will say draft bait but I think why trade for someone else player when we can get a top tier talent in the draft. I wish that Suh would have entered the draft this year...

We trade it for posters who are smart enough to start draft threads in the draft forum.

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
    • He is worth #8 pick. I'd like to see him next to Newton on the field.
