If David Garrard is willing to take backup money would you want to see him in a Panthers uniform? He is a proven commodity, great locker room guy, been around long enough to offer some leadership and help Cam develop.


As to the bolded part above, I've seen very mixed reports about Garrard. It might be wise to look elsewhere.

I'd like to get Dennis Dixon personally, if he'd come cheap.

I think Derek Anderson could handle it. Sure he's not that mobile but Cam plays the role of a pocket passer and he does it much better than his similar counterparts in Campbell, Young, or Vick. I think we would just start calling more passing/no run option plays. We'd probably run more drag routes and checkdowns. I don't think it would be a problem.

Nah, he's a free agent. Rather have RW16 than Johnson though.


I find it ironic how people on this board (not you specifically, Stumpy) are so high on Russell Wilson but then are so quick to call the *Saints' know-nothing QB a midget. Not to defend Breesus, just pointing out the contradiction.

I'd take Johnson over RW as even if he's less accurate, he's closer to Cam's height. You can't coach a player to be taller.

Dennis Dixon or Josh Johnson for a tiny wage, Armanti can be 3rd QB if need be (Long term injury = free agent signing)

i do think hanging onto armanti edwards makes sense if only for the fact that he's a backup quarterback, wide receiver, KR/PR all in one roster spot and he's an option to run the wildcat.

his versatility, if nothing else, may keep him on the roster.

One of the reasons you have a third quarterback is to run the scout team against the starters in practice. You need the 2nd quarterback to actually take somefirst teamreps during the week in case he has to come into the game. If you use Edwards to run the scout team he gets no practice at his regular position which is receiver.

If I'm not mistaken, weren't there reports that part of why he was released was because he didn't want to tutor Gabbert.


I understand that Garrard was out of football in 2011. That changes things.

I think it is time to forget about the Armanti Experiment. Every time I hear his name, I get mad at our GM.

Can't you sign an UDFA like Jordan Jefferson or Dominique Davis to the practice squad for that?

Is anyone, if any, who wanted Anderson to start the season still around?
