Somewhere in the numerous Otah topics i've often said i wasn't sold on Jeff as being the guy at right tackle. BTW i was the guy suggesting the Panthers draft an offensive tackle with the 9th pick just in case Otah turned out to be a bumb and, AND Gross isn't getting any younger but feel free to question my football knowledge and i'll continue to smile when i'm right, as usual.
three quarters of this board "wasn't sold on jeff being the guy" including me. also anybody else from planet earth who understands the concept of entropy and can count (i know that's asking a lot) would understand that "gross isn't getting any younger". drafting another tackle that early would have been stupid because 1. the suggestion came from you in the first place and 2. we've gotten by with JAGs at right tackle before and the panthers are one of the best teams in the league at scouting OL talent. they prepared for this situation by picking up bruce campbell. gross is also as sturdy as anybody at left tackle plus travelle wharton who according to PFF was one of the outright worst guards in the entire league last season has been replaced.
up next grits delivers his razor sharp insight re: whether or not he's "sold on jimmy clausen being the guy"
