Please stop with the bench. It tests muscle endurance not explosiveness or strength. Strength can be easily corrected with an NFL lifting regimen.


Warren Sapp only did 225 16 times. He turned out to be decent.

Pike is going practice squad. Jimmy will fight for backup position if we draft a QB, because I believe even if we draft one we'll sign a free agent to be safe. Which is why I believe you take Cam and let Shula see what he can do with him or sign a McNabb and draft AJ Green or draft Cam and still sign McNabb, he'll be a great mentor for Cam and help the developement of our young recievers. Basically, we can really use McNabb

I think we will whether we draft one or not.


Same sentiment...the big difference here seems that there's a side willing to risk the first pick with a QB and the the other part of the Panther nation has convinced themselves that we will not pick a QB and they additionally hate every QB in this draft because Luck didn't declare (they also know Newton and Gabbert do and will suck).

I'm personally on the Green/Peterson train, but am to the point where I am completely fine with taking a QB. Why? Because (1) Its a legitimate possibility, so I'm not going to convince myself that Newton/Gabbert won't be here & suck & (2) A FA QB is pretty much guaranteed, but additionally do you really want to wait another year to find a QB, or take a shot now while we have the top pick in the entire draft.

Yes but one thing your forgetting, under any new CBA there will be a salary cap for drafted rookies. The days of paying a rookie $65M right out of college is over.


That's not set in stone yet, there's been discussion that it would not apply to this year's rookies.

LOL, good point... they showed a graphic on NFLN of the top all-time bench pressers at the combine when that kid set the record and made the point that not one of them turned out to be much of a football player in the NFL.

They could bring in another young FA to compete with Clausen. Pike wouldn't be the only competition
