Cracka McNasty

I came to a realization today...

Dareus has lost a little steam to me. He is going to be good IMO but I haven't seen anything that makes me feel he is going to be special.

I just have a feeling that Dareus is going to be a very above average DT that gets 4-5 sacks a year and does a very good job inside. I just don't see him being a big time disruptor in the backfield on passing downs. But I also have no doubt that he is going to be a really good DT (I'm not bashing the guy).

It is weird because Fairley and Cam both come from Auburn and both are very similar issues in terms of NFL projections. Both have a chance to be superstars at their positions but also have chances to be busts.

I definitely still have Cam #1. But if we don't go there I think I would rather see us go PP7. Especially if Peterson agrees to return kicks and punts.

I actually posted this in "drafting another QB could land us in the cellar again"

But like I said.. it got stepped on pretty bad... I dont think anybody even saw it to be honest! anyways here it is Cracka

Drafting a QB may land us at the TOP of the Division!!! Look fellas, it's open for debate on whether or not Jimmy Clausen will be an NFL caliber QB... My thoughts on that are HELL NO! The dude even looks half retarded to be honest. Then he gets on Twitter and cries about not being invited to fellow teammates parties.... C'mon Maaan! Say what you want about a lame duck coach, bad OC, or what have you. A QB is supposed to be a LEADER right! The leader of the football team... The FACE of the franchise! Who here HONESTLY believes that he can be either!? I can tell you who does NOT... A few players have BLASTED him publicly... to name just a couple... Jon Beason, and Steve Smith! These are OUR captains! There have been more people that have slammed him too! Enough about Jimmy though...

Say we take a QB... Cam Newton.... because I think Gabbert has a "homo" aura about him and i think Newton is better! I don't recall Gabbert winning a Heisman or national Championship!?

Say we take Cam (which i hope we do) he instantly gives us a face, instantly rejuvenates a young Panther locker room, and loyal fan base! Those are FACTS whether you like the guy or not... This guy makes us WAY better than we were last year INSTANTLY!! Our defense was STR8 last year guys... they just stayed on the fieled for over 1/2 of each game! They can only hold people for so long. and with our Offense, (if you really want to call it that) not scoring any points....what did you expect our record to be....

Cam Newton gives us the ability to keep the NFC South tradition alive (although it was broken last year) from going from the worst in the division to winning the division title the very next year! All this cellar talk is for Oscar Meyer...Just baloney!!!! Cam gives us a Spark and his work ethic is SECOND to none! Where's Jimmy at now??? at home praying that they dont draft Cam... His ass should be organizing team workouts like Colt Mccoy is doing though! And you guys wonder why we only won 2 games! I guarentee you that within two weeks of Cam being drafted (whoever drafts him) he has organized team workouts or at least at a minimum has his receivers out there running routes. He has done that at EVERY LEVEL HIS ENTIRE CAREER!

Sure, he bought a stolen a laptop, maybe cheated on a test... maybe even knew about his dad and the $$... No there is NO Guarantee that he will save our franchise... but he COULD!!! Isn't that why Obama was elected? hope...

(Not saying that he delivered) (or that he has even done a good job) but I can use some hope for this team as a fan of the Panthers and of the game. This guy has the ABILITY to revolutionize the Position!! He's charismatic... I don't know but it must be tough being in the draft room evaluating his talent and then passing on the guy!

So in summary... Drafting a QB won't put us in the cellar unless it's Gabbert in my opinion! He's nothing spectacular... Cam is and that's why there's so much HYPE surrounding his name. actually another thought before i go....

To all of you who doubt that a first year QB can come in and make a real difference for a team during his ROOKIE season... what do you say about guys like: Joe Flacco, Matt Ryan, Stafford (when healthy), Bradford last year... I mean and thats just recently... these guys started in year one and made their teams EXPONENTIALLY better! Don't buy into the hype that the talking heads say on ESPN... They get paid to TALK!!! (which must be nice by the way)sometimes they let CRAP out of their mouths just to start debates like we're doing right now!

In the end... If we take Dareus and pass on Newton I would totally UNDERSTAND... We have a defensive GURU as our HC... It would make sense!

If we trade down to 3 get a 2nd rounder and still snag Peterson at the 3 spot I'm still happy! Now if we totally blow this draft and dont pick Cam, Dareus, or Peterson I'll be pissed! I don't care how many draft picks we get in this years or next years draft class... We have a young team with A LOT of talent. Our BLARING hole is at the helm! QB! PERIOD!

Imagine this for a second... Cam under center, DeAngelo behind him... Smith, Edwards, and Lafell or Gettis split out, Shockey at tight end.... What do you do if you're a defense!? Blitz the corners? oh ok... quick screen to Armanti Edwards... but wait, he drops back and "PASSES" accross the field to a wide open Steve smith! Maybe they'll load the box huh... Play action the LB's bite and pick a receiver any receiver!!!!

We're missing that one piece to this puzzle, and we can turn this thing around 180 degrees from day one. The question is will we do it? If we don't though and take Dareus first...it sures up our DL for yeas to come! To be honest Jake Locker looks pretty good to me, and I think he's better than Clausen too! So much to speculate about. Never really liked Cam until he came back and beat an NFL caliber defense in Nick Saban's Alabama team! Where was dareus at when Cam went crazy in the second half!? Was he taking plays off!??? Because I think we've been down that road before...and If i have a choice I pass on him! But he's a beast!

Truth be told... we need to hit the JACKPOT in the later rnds of the draft! Thats what will make us or break us. We need role players that fit in our system. Once the CBA is reached a good vet on each side of the ball sures us up! I have high hopes this season for the Panthers!

The thoughts of drafting first again next year are CRAZY!!!! The Sky is the limit!

This was my 2nd post here and I obviously know football... I'm looking forward to mixing it up with all of you while we wait on these guys (The NFL) to get their Shyite together!

Gotta go for now

I agree 100% on your opinion of dareus. I don't think he will be a suh, but I do think he will be a damn good DT.

With Smitty not wanting to be here and everything, I would really not be surprised if we find a way to take AJ Green.

I just really can't wait to see who it is so we can then move on....Whomever it is... I'm so tired of waiting it's almost like I don't even care anymore

if he's not as good as suh then he probably shouldn't get paid more then suh..and i wouldn't hope for any trades since most teams are probably comfortable with all the players in the top 10 and none of them really stand as the ultimate pick they covet.

I'm certainly not going to waver on who i want the Panthers to pick until the pick is made..then we can all just finally move on hopefully, whatever way it goes. However some people probably won't let go either way.

Flawed logic.

I don't want Newton or Bowers, I could live with about anyone else.

if that's what you think..just don't think a DT is worth the number one pick when you can probably get another guy in the later rounds for cheaper and barely notice the difference.

Speakin' of Suh, he may have been that pick that finally elevates Detroit and the funny thing is with Stafford always injured they still have QB problems.

I think you'd notice the difference, Dareus earned his reputation and his ranking, there's a reason he's the consensus #1 DT.

maybe..sometimes it also takes DTs a couple years to play up to a pro-level as well..I mean I'm not going to complain if we draft him if that's who they really want; but I can only seeing it making our D somewhat better in the long run but our offense will continue to be what it is for many more years.
