We Have No Pass-Rush Or Secondary

186 posts in this topic

I don't have a problem if fans want to critize the FO for not addressing positions via FA. And alot of the W-L comments about Hurney are relavent. But if you are mad about not drafting for need then I have a hard time respecting that.

I heard a GM say this past offseason that you draft BPA in the draft and fill the holes via FA the next offseason. That's why last year was so interesting with FA because it was completely different than what usually happens.

Some of you have already written off many players on this team. It's sad because there are some talented kids on this roster that need time to develope. I remember a time when people wanted Charles Johnson and James Anderson cut and replaced by other draft picks.

I can't speak for everyone but for those of you who are hating this draft, I will try my best to respect you and your opinions but you have to do the same for those of us who like the draft so far and willing to give more time for players to develope.

The thing most people forget is that last year rivers stated that wins and losses were not the main focus. He repeated that all he was asking of this team was to play hard and compete. We did both of those things very well and no one can deny that. Eliminate or limit the injuries and let the coaching staff put in their full scheme and we are in goooood shape. This team is still the same team that every panther fan projected to be a perenial player. I have the utmost respect for our coaches and our talent. We added pieces to our super bowl puzzle. Now let's put it together.

Yeah, because we really need some more rookies starting on the defensive line. That worked out so well last year.

Yeah, lets keep the same guys. They are only a notch away from being elite.

I agree with op. None of our draft picks fix any of our biggest issues from last year. You don't have to be a nfl gm to see a botched draft.

So, the revolving door at LBer wasn't a big issue from last year?

TD is gone, and Beason may still not be ready to start the season.

Not to mention, our interior line was almost literally a revolving door itself.

I remember people wanting Anderson and Johnson to be given a chance. Especailly Johnson. He was beastly.

For those saying this is a "Hurney Draft"

Steve Reed@SteveReed_AP

Panthers did not trade up in the third round although Ron Rivera had been egging on Marty Hurney to "work his magic."

Oh course this was going to happen. Hurney makes the final call. That is why he is the GM. Ron is the HC. Ron has no power in what goes on with the players we get from FA and the draft. All Ron can do is suggest and give his opinion on who might best fit their game plan. The rest is up to Hurney.

I greatly disagree,You mean to tell me brockers,cox, and poe are no better than fua and mcclain? I would give you credit if you can name 4 plays each where they even flashed ability. I understand Dts take a while to develope but if you are a nfl caliber starter,I exspect you to atleast flash. Give the team areason to believe in you. Hogan gets a pass due to injury but beyond him and cam its hard to put much faith in anyone else in last years class sir.

Considering that 60% of first round DT's bust, it is a crapshoot.

Rivera really likes our young DT's and he knows great defenses. I trust him on defense.
