In the event of a lockout and replacement players

What kind of talent can we expect on the field? Are there any specific names that come to mind? Could we see the return of players like Jarrett? UDFA's over the past couple years? CFL or NFLE or AIFA players? Could the Panthers actually look any worse than last season?

Winning our only superbowl with scrubs in a lockout would be just our luck

From what I understand, if the owners lockout the players, they are going to de-unionize, and sue the NFL under employment laws. Their goal would be to stop the NFL from actually having games next year among other objectives. If this happens, I don't believe there will be replacement players, and we simply won't have football.

However, there is a possibility that the owners agree on a CBA of their own design, throw it at the NFLPA and say take it or leave it, and force them to strike. If that happens, we could see replacement players (though they de-unionized last time this happened in an attempt to do the same tactic as above).

It's a big clusterfug right now is all I think anyone can say for certain.

For the last damn time, if there is a lockout then there can't be replacement workers because the owners lock the building up and won't let anyone in the building. There can only be replacements if the players strike (aka- refuse to come to work).

This is the most likely scenerio I can see. The owners wont take the blame for no football. They will make the players strike.

the owners will receive the blame either way, as they're the ones who opted out of the CBA in the first place. playing politics to back players into a corner to 'strike' isn't going to win hearts and minds.

this is an America where we just spent hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars to bail out these owner types. they aren't going to get sympathy.
