what's wrong with wanting luck, if he was considered to be one of the best QB prospects in the last decade,
The problem is he wasnt. ESPN talking heads said that, but what GM or NFL Exec said he is? This notion that Luck is above this "process" (pro day, combine, etc) is laughable. Luck is unproven and needs more time in college to showcase that he's ready for the next level. Thats why Ive always said it was wise of him to go back and attempt to dominate the college game the way Cam did this season.
then when he didn't enter the draft, decide to select another position? If someone doesn't believe any QB in this draft is worth the #1, it would be stupid to draft any QB at #1 so therefore it is the best decision to select another position.
What we believe and what we need are two different things. The people opposed to us taking a QB always fall back on weak FA strategies to get a QB that dont benefit our team in the long term. What posters on this board "want" is irrelevant. I see people saying that a lot here, "I want, I want, what I want", nobody cares. What we need is a QB, that has not changed irregardless of what Luck decided to do.
we can nab a first round QB next year.
And you know this how? How do you know our draft spot?
just like last year, if bradford had of decided not to be in the draft, would any other QB really have been worthy of the #1 overall?
It depends on the team with the #1 pick, if their need was QB and there was someone there they liked, chances are they would've took 1. I dont understand why this is so hard for some to grasp.
there is absolutely nothing wrong with being on board with luck as the #1 and then moving to another position since he's no longer available.
There isnt anything wrong with it, I would just say those folks want a Luck more than they want a QB. Luck will never be a Panther, the sooner some accept that, the sooner their life can go on.
your point of view of those of us who oppose cam is completely wrong.
I think many opposing Cam have weak backup plans on how to fix our QB situation. Maybe if they proposed more than "lets just hope for Luck again" or "lets sign a scrub to get people hyped about Panthers football" people would take them a lot more seriously.

LOL! you call that being on his train? you only said he was your favorite "at this point" then went on to talk about his negatives, his maturity and ability to lead, and even made fun of how he looks.
I wouldn't call that a ringing endorsement. Don't act like you were riding his jock back in December. At best, you were only fondling his sack.
Hey I was just giving evidence that I wasn't biased against him...
If anything I'm just biased against taking a QB at #1... but these Cam nut huggers don't see it as that and only see me against him, which I obviously am not...
At this point I actually hope we take Von Miller, Robert Quinn, or Tyron Smith just so I can see this place fuging EXPLODE!
So much emotion directed towards one or two players is what you want to avoid in times like this... I learned the hard way with Peppers... hahahahaha

Keep in mind, JR also went on TV and smushed Gantt publicly, so I'm not surprised if he isn't exactly super in the know when it comes to JR.
I can't speak to another man's sources. Lot of research goes into No. 1. RT @sdanner52 whats the deal with J.R. not being sold on newton?
The thing I don't get here is why someone would make something like this up (not saying it's true, but...)
Why exactly is someone planting a story like this? To keep potential suitors from trading up with us so Cam would fall to them? That is possible, but they'd have to be damn well convinced we don't want him since one would hope Hurney wouldn't be fooled by another team's rumor that JR doesn't want Newton, lol.
The only thing I can think of is that if it's made up, it's because someone is *sure* that Newton isn't the "kind of kid" that JR would like so they're just madly speculating. But Freeman's report sounded like his source was saying something more than that.

Anyone hear what the local beat writers are saying about the visit.? So far I have only heard from guys who don't really have that great of inside sources. if Gantt and Candler haven't heard about Richardson's reservations then do we really think these other guys know more??? Honestly given how little Richardson says to anyone in the media, for anyone to get wind of his feelings, it would have to be a planted story. We didn't even find out about what JR and Smitty talked about. How in the world would we find out what his feelings were about Newton?? He is beyond close mouthed to the press.
No one has said boo. I have hit them up a couple times but they seem to not know anything at all. No news, no info, nada. Nothing but smartass replies.
