If you are looking at the Panthers roster noone use the N° 40 this is the only reason we have drafted Kuelchy.

No more whining i want my 2, no its mine..

So you admit that we have only 1 starting linebacker we can count on, and yet you think that Kuechly was a pick that didn't fill a need?

Honestly we have 3 lbers we count on. Anderson,TD and Beason. Luke is a big time pick for us. TD will mostly back up those 3. Having TD as a back is better then most backups in the league right now. My opinion only. Beason will be fine. Don't worry so much.

Kuechly will be defensive rookie of the year..tackling machines always get the votes.

I felt it was a need that could have been addressed in round 2 or later. TD coming back is a long shot but what if he does? Then we have to choose to sit Davis or Kuechly and we are not a 3-4 team so both cant be out there. Just back to the same old log jam we have had for years but this time we passed up on a great DT to have it.

@snake: Rivera stated throughout the year he beleive in our third rounders from a year ago. I wasn't thrilled at first but I realized TD won't be what he used to be. It's a smart choice. He can tackle and cover well.

Whatever the choice is tomorrow I'll stand begin him because I believe Rivera is set out to build a strong defense and has had a good history of dominant defenses.

did you have a point?? What about timmons?? best cover LB in the league playing in the middle. Just trying to make you see that LB's are actually very important and not to be confused with FB's as you did.

Yes rush LBers are extremly valuable. Probally better than good DE.

TD insurance was needed but it was a reach in the first. We passed on Impact players to draft insurance for TD. Something Im not happy about.

I fuggin love TD, but you can't depend on a man with three ACL tears in what, less than three years? Hes not insurance, he's our guy.

    • I've worked as an IT contractor for the state of Texas for the past 6 years. I do basic IT hardware support mainly supporting equipment that is a decade old and obsolete. I do stuff like requisition a new hard drive for a server and replace it. Or troubleshoot network problems. If I can't solve a problem I move the ticket up the chain. Pretty basic stuff. I'm currently studying for a CompTIA A+ certification and an MTA cert just to make my resume look better. I was given word that our contract with the state is not being renewed. It expires August 31, so I'm going to be laid off unless my company can find somewhere else for me to work. We've already laid off 10 people since this time last year and my team only has 3 people left on it. The work is drying up as the state moves more and more to virtual server technology so I'm like 99% sure I'm being let go. I'll probably get 4-5 weeks of severance and I can apply for unemployment. Austin has an insurance program for musicians I can apply for since part of my income comes from playing music. I've been trying to get a new job doing basic tech support or even call center type stuff but the jobs are either terrible, like want someone with the kind of experience I have but pay $12/ho and I won't be able to afford my rent, or they require stuff that is way over my head. I went to school for audio engineering at UNCA,. I didn't really intend on pursuing IT as a career, but music doesn't pay poo and I kind of have to go in this direction. I'm pretty depressed because I've been searching for a new job for years, and I've had interviews and whatnot, but the jobs either don't pay enough for me to leave my current position or they require stuff I don't have and/or want to pursue. I feel like I'm stuck in neutral. I'm almost 30 and I feel like my career hasn't gone anywhere and I'm going to be making just a little above entry level pay my whole life.  Anyone ever been in this situation before? How did you make your career take off, or find something you were passionate about and run with it?
