Glad to see someone's recycled and adapted the old "we'll never draft/develop a QB" rant from offseasons of yore.


Well I was referring to wr's, but how can we forget a few of hurneys qb's before cam. Stefon lefors, brett basanez, tony pike. Oh man those boys must be tearing up the league elsewhere. Or not lol.

Also don't underestimate the fact that now that the QB position has been stabilized and the offensive philosophy has changed to a more pass-oriented style, the WRs we bring in are going to be more productive. Don't count out LaFell breaking 1000 this season

Oh we should do a thread on training camp legends. Taye Biddle, Trent Guy, Hilee Taylor, that defensive end that would bark! We always get excited about someone that gets cut.

I'll take Pilares as our emerging #3 that slowly works his way up like Smitty did. I know everyone is on the Adams train, but I do recall a similar outcry when we took Pilares and people saying that he reminded them of Smith at Utah, and for good reason. I think our offense could resemble the old Patriots winning teams and even Pittsburgh when they had one key WR and several other guys that spread the wealth in yards and touchdowns because their QB play was so solid. I think Adams will in time do well here, but right now, Pilares is one year ahead and has a very similar skillset.

Gettis if healthy seems like a logical choice to step up.
But, if the Panthers are looking for more of a slot type WR Joe Adams has a great skillset for that type of role.

No, I'm reliving it.

The logic is just as warped as before.

Even for a homer like me, this is a little far fetched. Lafell should be in the 5-7 hundred area. He catches everything, so all he needs are the targets. So if Brandon can get 60-70 catches, his numbers should improve dramatically. I just can't see him getting enough catches for a 1k season.

Not sure where the misconception started. We can throw the ball, and we can run the ball. But, we are not a passing team. At least going on recent history. We had a what? 52-48 pass to run ratio last year? I expect that ratio to remain rather steady. So there are only so many yards to go around. I expect about 4k passing yards with Smitty getting 1500. That's leaves 25k to go around. Why not Lafell?

We have an eclectic group of WRs at the moment. Seems I am not the only one wondering how this is all going to play out.

I think Lamont Bryant could be a great receiver for us. Then again what do I know, I liked Taye Bittle.

If we have 25k more passing yards to go around then Smith will surely be last with a mere 1500.

I actually expect more running this season, Smith will top 1k, but I don't see 1500 with the emergence of LaFell and the addition of Tolbert. I do think Gettis can be a dangerous weapon, he's tall, fast, attacks the ball and is a very good blocker. With him it'll come down to comfort and confidence in his knee.
