SCP

This is why trading up for Armanti Edwards was stupid..(ps SCP went to Eastern Car.)

241 posts in this topic

Just to clarify, I didn't say Armanti reminds me of Randle El. Some dude said it takes D1 QBs 1-5 years to make the transition to NFL WR or something like that. I pointed to Randle El as somebody who is the same size as Armanti but made the transistion from college QB to NFL WR/KR instantly. He played in 16 game as a rookie. So the excuses Armanti jock sniffers keep making for him are kind of weak.

Hurney's thought process going into drafting Edwards:

"Well, I know our O-line depth stinks and we have no DTs to speak of, but i realllllllly think we're just a poor man's Julien Edleman away from being really good"

If anyone can give me a logical reason I will change my mind and say he was worth the pick.

He was 4-0 against WCU.

This thread=17 pages

AE as a WR=0 catches

5 pages you n00b. Get your settings right.

Oh, and Armanti will go down as one of the worst picks in Panthers history.

Really no basis to call this guy a bust, and therfore the trade good or bad. You can't judge a player you hasnt even finished there rookie season in a trastion from two totally different postins.

Lets see him once we get a real offensive coordinator and see if he still sucks next year.

My question right now is "HOW CAN HE NOT BE A BUST"? I mean what is he going to do in 2 years that we dont have right now? How is he going to set the panthers on fire?

If anyone can give me a logical reason I will change my mind and say he was worth the pick.

Somebody with alot of pull in the Panthers org wanted him. There were reports that he was going to be grabbed by another team prior to our next pick. Our guy pulled the trigger on the trade. It doesn't matter how much whining continues, it can't be undone. It would be better for mental well-being to hope he develops rather than bitching that he hasn't.

Just saying

We lost 34 lettermen, have a new coach, new OC, new DC, new offense, new defense, 6 returning starters, beat NC State, are bowl eligible for the 5th consecutive year and are coming off back to back conference titles.

Your shots at ECU are ridiculous and you showed your lack of general college football knowledge with that post. We lost to badly to Navy, which sucks... but it's hard to defend against them when you've only got 2 active DT's on your roster due to injury.

D1AA football, no matter how you slice it, is inferior to FBS football. You can stack up all the JV titles you want and they don't amount to ANYTHING on the FBS level. BCS conference or not, we play the big boys week in and week out, and ARE one of the big boys. Just ask UNC, NC State, VT, WVU, Miami, etc. Get real.

That said, Armanti is garbage, and I'd love for him to be able to help this team...but it looks like he's in WAYYYYY over his head, and we gave up WAY too much to get him.

Did you just call NC state a "big boy"? Ha!

Alway swim wid a buddy when you around wata.

I enjoy hearing him talk. But that couldn't have been more scripted, it was like they were trying to see the cue cards better as they were reading.

The fact is he will not make the numbers game next year and if he dose then it will only be because of what we gave up for him. He is Jarrett 2.0

Lets see him once we get a real offensive coordinator and see if he still sucks next year.

With that logic. LaFell and Gettis will still be miles ahead of him.

Don't cry over spilled milk? :beatdeadhorse5:

I think we all know good and God damn well that AE can't swim. He couldn't even read the cue card without moving his entire head. I wonder if he had his "swimming legs" by the time they aired this :lol:

Man I hope he develops into something special T.T
