Andrew Luck News & Updates

720 posts in this topic

it's all speculation.. best thing any of you can do is just relax and wait to see what happens..

That's the approach that I'm taking but man, am I anxious... I just wish for once that we had everything align for us and things went our way. Even in our most successful years the QB position was always a source of heated debate. Imagine everything goes our way and we get Luck and he panned out to be like Peyton. We'd be set for years and no one would have to argue about the most important position on the field, we'd just have to build around it.

I REALLY hope he comes out.

ditto on Adam Gold...if it's not baseball, he's taking the most assinine slant on a topic and running with it. And honestly, I believe he does it to create listener participation. Joe is actually pretty cool.

Yeah, honestly I listen more for the callers than those guys. The callers (for the most part, lol) seem more knowledgeable than the hosts and have more perspectives and interesting angles on the topics than Gold and Ovies.

As far as Luck, none of this matters if he does not come out early from college. I personally would like to see a real QB in Carolina and I don't know if Luck is 'the guy', but I'm also not convinced Carolina picks Luck even even if he is available. People who make a lot of money to be professional scouts will make this decision, and these same people are deciding if Clausen has any shot of being more than a 3rd stringer. I personally don't see Clausen's potential, but we do know that the Panthers will willing to trade into the 1st round to get this guy. What they saw, I don't see, but they know more than me.

The Panthers are a run first team....and they have a very good running game with Williams (resign him), Stewart, and Goodson and arguably have the potential to have the best in the league. They may be thinking all they need is another 'game manager' to be successful, and instead of spending their money on shoring up the o-line, and d-line especially if Luck does not come out.

If Luck is not available, or if the Panthers don't view any other player worth #1:

1). Trade away the first pick. Hopefully get a 2nd rounder back, along with multiple other lower picks. The Panthers want to build from the draft, so they need more picks.

2). Fix the o-line, and get 2 stud DT's

3). 1-2 new CB's (Marshall is probably leaving, and Gamble?)

4). Trade for Kolb & other no-name QB's (ie. Flynn). Resign Moore, and along with Clausen, Pike and whoever...let the best 3 end up on the 2011 roster.

5). #1 WR: Smith is on the downside. Not sure yet if Lafell or Gettis are #1's yet

6). Become a dominating defense (like in 2002, 2003), and run the football like in 2009. This was one of Fox's downfalls...he got away from what he was good at (defense, and running the ball).

knowing our "luck" Luck will not come out. I firmly believe Bank of America Stadium is built on a Indian burial ground. Nothing every goes "perfect for us" in situations like these.

Please Lord let me be wrong

News Flash, Luck would have looked like poo this year under center for the panthers.

no one is denying that (at least I wasn't). Im just trying to figure out what else is out there.

Logan, PA12:44 PM ET

If Luck decides to go back to school What do you think the Panthers will do with the #1 pick? If he declares do they take Him? Gil Brandt, NFL.com

Logan, if Stanford QB Andrew Luck declared, the Panthers have to take him. I think he'll be an outstanding NFL QB. If he does not come out, they should think of going defense. One player they might be interested in is another underclassman -- in this case one who is already talking about coming out: Clemson DE Da'Quan Bowers. He's a great pass rusher, which everyone's looking for.

Gil Brandt, NFL.com

At this point, I think it's less than 50-50 that he comes out. Luck was redshirted his first year at Stanford, so he's really only been a started for two seasons. With his dad, Oliver, having experience as an NFL quarterback, I think he recognizes the importance of getting as much college experience as possible to be prepared for the NFL.

Gil Brandt is a very respected guy who knows his stuff, the call him the Godfather on sirius nfl radio

He didn't really get away from that he just ignored QB and DT to the point that they crippled the team. The defense is actually pretty good and we can run well.

I still think who ended up with the #1 pick was as important to him as anything though.

Why do people keep saying that? There is a 100% chance that a very bad team is picking #1 every single year. There is no way around it.

Or Cam Newton. Drafting ONE player will not fill in the gaps that have opened on this team.

We will not succeed as a franchise unless two significant events occur:

1. The entire Front Office is replaced with strong competent people. (Meaning successful with other clubs/organizations/schools). Let's face it... Hurney got lucky with Peppers/Smith/Delhomme in 2003. Ever since then, we've slowly faded and not upgraded. The ability of our FO and GM to find talent and bring them to Charlotte is questionable at best, terrible at worst. (The DWill/JStew last year was also a stroke of luck too, but not enough to compensate for bad QB play that should have been taken care of after Tommy John).

2. A renewed/shown interest by JR to invest in Free Agency and his own team over the NFL as a whole. Many people bring up this past off-season as being cheap.... but don't forget, we didn't do crap in FA the year before either!!! This has been a brewing problem for us, and finally caught us in the ass.

If we don't grab at least ONE big name from the FA pool this year, JR is not rebuilding... just gap-filling.

We either rebuild correctly, or we flounder like Oakland... or *gulp* Detroit.
