From where I sit, I'd rather take a chance on a franchise QB and miss than not take the chance and watch him become a franchise QB for someone else.

I'm not sold that he'll be a franchise QB anywhere.

If the team is, they'll take him. If they aren't, they shouldn't.

Whichever they do, I hope they're right.

Success is not being a consistent winner but failing short when it counts no matter how you look at it what we did in the past DIDN'T WORK why continue to follow the same trend?

Doing something different just because it's different doesn't make sense unless what you do is also wise.

I don't think taking any of the QBs in this draft would be wise.

For the record, I would pull the trigger on Cam if it were my decision knowing everything I do now. Why? Because I've taken some big gambles in my chosen career (acting) that have paid off and I make a pretty good living getting on stage or in front of a camera & performing or teaching others how to do the same.

Notice how that has NOTHING to do with judging football talent?

Again, I make a pretty good living with ^that, but the people who are making the decisions in this draft are making 5-10 times more than I am (likely more) because while I was training to trod the boards, they were training to investigate the poo out of football players & finding out if they fit the team or not.

Has Hurney made mistakes? Sure. Will Rivera make mistakes? Yep, but either one of them could bitchslap this entire board with their football knowledge using one hand, a smart phone, & eating dirty rice in less than 10 posts.

Also, they likely have twice the information than us. I'm not saying that we shouldn't voice our opinions, but being rational dictates that we remember that we are a bunch of yahoos who may or may not have played as far as college ball & there is a reason none of us are going to be in the Panthers' war room come the 28th.
