Drafting a DT isn't conservative, it's filling in a major hole in our defense. If we shore up the D-line we will have a bad ass defense. When we walk out on the field, then, we would have the advantage on at least one side of the ball. Fixing the QB situation will likely take longer. Fixing the Dline is a quick fix to being competitive.

Yes fixing the defense that was pretty good last year> fixing our putrid offense.

So we should wait longer to address the QB situation? I don't understand that logic.

I know it's what Rivera and Hurney both would prefer because they've expressed that rookie QBs starting early isn't good. It's one of the reasons they defend Clausen.

That, plus two of the three prospects we're looking at will require time to transition to an NFL offense, and the third is an idiot.

You would think after all the complaining about the conservative nature of the John Fox era people here would be more apt to take risk. However from a lot of comments and post it seems like John Fox is still here.


Drafting a cornerback , DT at #1?
We need a traditional pocket passing QB.
Complaining that a QB made a play to ice the game instead of taking a knee?
Tanking the year so we can get a better QB(arguably) next year?
Hoping that our horrible QB play from last year was just bad play calling?


Or maybe it's just me reading into things..........


So change just for change sake? BTW Pittsburgh has been 'conservative' for decades now. Who has the most rings?

Yes pocket passer as Dual college threats will NEVER make it in the NFL, NEVER! Now put down the fuging madden and join reality

I don't think that you can label people that don't want Cameron as being conservative.

AJGreen is the most dynamic offensive talent in the draft in my opinion, that's why you take him. I feel that the team isn't going to win right away anyhow so the team should build for the future with great talent. AJ Green was one of the top recruits out of HS and has kept his game at a high level while improving each and every year. He is the closest that this draft has to a can't miss prospect. That doesn't make me conservative because I want the Panthers to pick him over Cameron.
