So earlier in the season, well towards the end of the regular season, Gamble had some rumblings on here that he "mouthed off" or did something to the team where he wasn't even activated for some of the games. Some say it was due to injury (which I believe some of it was) and some of it was just not active.

Now with a new DC and HC that might actually game plan towards our CB's strengths, do you think he might have changed his tune a little? If not that might mean we will be going CB in the first round in the draft to have a replacement on board for him. Anyone hear anything or know anything?

I understand Gamble's gripe 100% and don't hold mouthing off against him.

I do think he'll be re-energized by the change in staffs and philosophies.

That's my thinking. The more I read about how the team was run last year, and how we ended up. I can understand his frustration. I hope our new DC and knowing our HC's background, he would be pumped up to play for them.

I'm down with the Gamble....I like it when a team develops and keeps their draft picks....Gamble is going to like the new coaching regime...so he should stay.

Yep. With Fox essentially giving up, it was painfully obvious his agenda for this season was to get back at JR rather than win games.

Honestly surprised more players didn't react the way Gamble did.

What did he mouth off about?

Gamble is one of the most laid back, easy going guys on the roster. I don't blame Fox either, nor do I blame JR--I am happy we moved on. I understand why JR would not fire Fox too. Just a bad situation.

Bright side? McClain got some good experience. He looked bad at times, but let's face it--our rookies were not brought along last year. Meeks will get this group right. Throw in a rookie, we are set.

I'm still not sold that Gamble is a Panther next season...

Don't get me wrong, I like him and want him to be a Panther, but you never know how things might go down in an offseason such as this...

Fox being gone makes last year's issues pretty much moot.

If my memory is correct, didn't this start when the team was reviewing the Ravens game (ugh...) and on the 1st TD pass to Housh, Gamble was blamed for giving up the TD instead of Godfrey which frustrated him to the point of walking out of practice?

Also, I believe Gamble's injury as much as I believe Delhomme's injury the year before...

anyone else find it a creepy coincidence that Gamble looks like the comedian Godfrey, and we have a Godfrey out there on the field with him?

Have they ever been seen in the same room at the same time? I didn't think so.

gamble isn't really the issue though i'd like to see him work on his tackling more. the real issue are on the other side of the field but still on defense. those guys worry me. based on height we're giving up and too much attitude with the other guy. eventually, they'll all get replaced but this is more reason to chase pat patterson.

I would imagine any "mouthing off" or whatever it was got under Fox's skin. Had it been directed towards Meeks, well he is now the secondary coach and that could be interesting. Damn't, I want Peterson to help us out.

Anyone who thinks we have to go offense first pick b/c our defense is good enough, please stop with that notion. Our defense can definitely improve, and since the best talent in this draft, especially at the top, dont be surprised to hear a defensive player called first overall.
