I was excited because it meant they believed enough in Newton that they thought he could really help us.

I was also a bit nervous because I felt like he was a reach... but because it was such a deep DT class I wasn't too worried.

Readers said they were anxious to hear more about how the Panthers evaluated Newton and what convinced them to pick him No.1. Andrew Dandison of Salisbury said he's anxious to follow Newton's development as a "student of the game."

"If Newton comes in and is a playbook junkie, the-first-to- arrive and last-to-leave leader, then all this criticism will evaporate," he wrote. "I am not a fan of the pick, but I have faith in the coaching staff and I will support him and Panthers just the same."

I started drinking. Made it the most special draft night I've been a part of since Kerry Collins. I went out to the bar and got hammered and went to work the next day still drunk. Good times lie ahead my friends.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
