I think that "frank and beans" guy from Something About Mary wrote this article.

I'm FAR more concerned about the CB position right now.

I never knew you could just make a thread and put a link to it. All this time I thought you'd have to put some type of work into a thread. Silly me.

As far as the article. I don't believe the Panthers will be doomed. Olsen/Shockey alone will make defenses single cover Smith, giving him room to make work of the CB covering him. Also, with LaFell and Gettis showing flashes. This team is going to be fine. I'm not even mentioning Armanti at the moment until he makes it up the depth chart. He's still promising with what's he doing. Then let's not forget Darvin Adams. He was Cam's guy, there's already chemistry there.

I wouldn't say we're set, but I'd rather give the young guys the opportunity to make a name for themselves. One of them is bound to emerge and become a household name.

Now CB that's another story, that's the position that needs to be addressed right now. Even if they don't do so, next year's CB's are very good. Dre Kirkpatrick should be our 1st round pick to be honest.

Thank you #1 Panthers Fan, for both the sh*tty self-promotion and equally sh*tty article.

. Whether owner Jerry Richardson did this due to the impending lock out or simply because he did not want to spend the money, it is crippling the franchise. Jon Fox is almost certain to lose his job at the end of the year

Horrible and outdated. Get this poo outta here.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
