Against all options, Newton makes most sense for Carolina

279 posts in this topic

Carson Palmer and David Garrard are both stop gaps as well. One is 31 and completely quitting on his team and the other is 33 years old.

Palmer's not "quitting". He just wants off the Bengals (wouldn't you?)

Both have either worked with guys on our staff (Garrard with Shula) or guys familiar with our system (Palmer's QB coach is the son of Norv Turner's mentor).

And two or three years gives us time to look at future drafts, one of which should have a better pool of QBs (next year's is expected to).

Best players available at positions of need.

I could live with Green (more so if Smitty wasn't back) but that's another spot where we need experience more than we need youth.

And again, QB via trade preferably. Free agency if it doesn't pan out.

None of your ideas have come close to explaining how that leads us to a superbowl. It also does not get us in the playoffs year in, year out. Cmon man! explain yourself! so far all you have offered up is a band-aid and barely above .500 seasons.

Quit beating around the bush and at least explain how that makes us better/Hope for the Future.

They have a draft next year too.

(and the year after that...and the year after that...and...)

Do you think we will have the #1 pick each time. Sorry but I hope we never have the #1 pick ever again. Or anywhere near number one for that matter.

You're assuming that Cam Newton does get us into the playoffs year in and year out. Why?

If Cam Newton can do it, why can't a rookie we draft next year do it? Why can't a FA we pick up? Or a guy on the roster? Hell, at least the later two have played an NFL down...

Correct. and under that assumption, you're ok with another #1 to high draft pick which equals another crappy season. Gotcha.

There was a time when nobody had as much upside or potential as Tim Couch, David Carr and Jamarcus Russell too.

They call it "risk" for a reason.

Cam Newton is more on the potential side of a Peyton Manning or Philip Rivers. Not a David Carr or Jamarcus Russell.

Already did. You guys can disagree if you want, but the explanation's there.

And do franchise QBs only come from #1 picks?

(you might wanna check recent drafts)

Kurb has said my favorite line in regards to this thought process

For fug sake some of you are so terrified of failure it's disturbing.

Again, we're allowed to go after quarterbacks via other methods.

My preference would be trade. Best options being Carson Palmer or David Garrard.

The free agent class if not as good. Only stopgaps, but I'd rather have that than a rookie getting thrown to the wolves.

We get none of those Quarterbacks Carson will be a Bengal and the Jaguars would be crazy to let garrard go.

I'm assuming we have no idea what Cam Newton will do, just as no NFL team knows when picking a QB #1. I am saying that it is a POSSIBLITY that he does. Rookie we draft next year = crappy season this year. FA we pick up? did you not see that list of FA QB's???? A GUY ON THE ROSTER?!?!?! Yes, they did play a NFL down and did mind numbingly terrible at it.

In your opinion. I disagree (and I'm not the only one).

Because if we don't get Newton, there will never ever be another good quarterback available again.

Why wait? There is a potential SUPERSTAR right there in front of you, & he's ours for the taking. Grow a sack or go to Denver & meet up with Fox.
