Cam + a long term weapon would help this franchise for years to come


Call me blindly optimistic, but if Gettis picks up where he left off we might have a pretty potent (and young) one-two punch with him and LaFell for a long time behind Smitty. I feel like today we just couldn't control the line of scrimmage so if Kalil is there that's my choice.

I really dont think we need to draft a WR yet. DT and CB are by far the biggest needs.


I say, draft Matt Kalil, and pick up a veteran CB like Samuel for a couple of seasons. You just drafted two DTs. If you get another one, it should be via free agency or trade also.

WITH SMART OFFSEASON MOVES ON DEFENSE, the Panthers could compete next season. The Offense is full of vets. If you're going to draft a young guy, draft him on Offense. You don't need a receiver with Gettis coming back, and if he gets hurt again, you'll still be good enough there.

Draft Kalil.

Pick up veteran free agents on Defense so you can compete NEXT YEAR before guys like Smitty and Gross get too old.

I see where you are coming from, but look what AJ Green has been doing this year. Dude is putting up huge numbers. Hopefully Blackmon could do that for us. I'm also happy with Kalil


Green still isn't in the same league with Steve Smith and Wes Welker yet. Why waste a top pick on a GLAMOR POSITION like receiver, when you should build the team from the inside out?

Other than QB, you'd be better off filling glamor positions through free agency.

Huh? What top franchise WR are you going to find through free agency?

You're the main one again knee injuries. Gettis had an knee injury. So if he dont come back the same, we're stuck with an older Steve and defenses keying in on him. Eventually Cam will need that weapon

Is it too late to do it right and get Harbaugh first and not give a poo about the top draft pick? Harbaugh's winning with Alex Smith. Fox is winning with The Golden Calf of Bristol. Can we start for once at the top like all good football teams do: with a GOOD coach?

And build a team around a good coaching philosophy, not a QB? When you have a good coaching philosophy you can also pick good QB's. Funny how it works that way.

What's the Panthers coaching philosophy? Anyone care to explain this one to me? Cam Newton?

Only works for Indianapolis. See GB Farve to Aaron: Super Bowl winners in 2 years. See Patriots: Lose Brady: winning record with Cassell.

See Carolina:
Lose Jake = 7-9 with Matt Moore.
Force coach to go against his philosophy and start rookie QB: 2-14
New coach with no philosophy and rookie QB: 2-7

It's not going to get prettier.

Trade down, trade down, trade down.

We need some significant new blood on the team, especially on D (and no, I am not blaming them alone for the disaster today).

This group will not get it done, even with Beason back 100%.

This. If we do pick that high, trade down and get every top quality D-lineman (especially tackle) and linebacker we possibly can.

Quality > quantity. Unless we can get multiple firsts/seconds(won't happen unless we get #1), I would prefer a true blue chip talent like Kalil over trading down.

Sounds nice, idk about that honestly

I rather get someone who has a better possibility of being a star

Definitely not knocking your opinion though

We should have done that this year. Does anyone forget that outside of Luck no one could even figure out who was going to go first until the draft hype started?


I called this. We needed AJ Green, for a #2 receiver and future #1, a big O-man that can stay healthy and get the run game going and a vet QB or pick a lower draft pick. The rest dedicated to defense. That is all we freaking needed.

That's exactly what Bengals did. They took AJ, and they got Dalton. Win.

Dalton's just a game manager. But that makes him a better NFL QB than Newton because he doesn't turn over the ball and runs an NFL style offense, balanced. Run & Pass.

We can't run because of the offensive style we have and O-line.

We will still need the same thing this year. A #2 receiver, a big O man that can help us get the run game going, and a QB that can run an NFL style offense.

We also need a PR. If that QB is Cam good. If not get me a damn Vet. I'd take McNabb over Cam. Get me someone that he can learn from. Get me someone he actually has to BEAT to start!

We need players that can start immediately and an intelligent offensive lineman who can make an impact from day one is the only right choice.

Here's question, given our needs.

Say we end up with the #2 pick(#3 even), there will be teams that really want either Landry Jones or Matt Kalil. Do you trade down to get more players or draft an Elite Left Tackle?


When you have a defense like ours you trade down.
