@Panthers

On first play of 7-on-7, Jonathan Nelson picks off Cam in end zone. Pass was intended for Darvin Adams.

Carolina Panthers ‏@Panthers

QB Derek Anderson leads offense to 5-yard line. RB Tauren Poole runs it in for the score.

I'm really impressed with Tauren Poole, I think he will beat out Vaughn for the third running back position.

Completely ridiculous attitude. If he looks better than other players and can contribute then it's not a wasted pick. It's only a wasted pick if he fails to succeed. You SHOULD be rooting for him, not the opposite. I'll never understand this idiocy.

It's the same thing every year. I will never understand why people get the foolish attitude that it will change over six months. He plays well in camp every damn year and disappears when it matters the most. He has gotten by because of the lack of depth at wide receiver for so many years, but not this year. This year Hurney rids himself of the mistake of drafting Edwards.

I like Jonathan Nelson, he played well in the few games we had him for.

I think Nelly makes the practice squad along with D.J. Campbell.

He hasn't disappeared when it mattered most, he's never seen the fuging field at receiver. That's a coaching decision. The attitude of "I don't care how good he looks, I want him gone" is nothing but complete stupidity.

My opinion is the right one and everyone else is stupid and nobody is going to convince me otherwise.

When it matters the most for players like Armanti Edwards isn't the regular season, it's the preseason. The preseason proves to be no different though, he never gets the job done.

If he wants to play, then he needs to raise his game because players like Jared Green and Seyi Ajirotutu are showing that they can do what Edwards has never been able to do.

Also he has been given a chance, he was given a chance as a special teams asset (you know where Steve Smith first made his mark) and he didn't even succeed at that.

Edwards is gone.

I'm not debating whether he's a long shot to make the team. With the load of WR's on this team, there are quite a few good receivers that won't make this team. My only point was that wanting to wash your hands of him no matter how good he looks is beyond ridiculous and just shows that you have an anti-Armanti bias for some reason. Whether it's because of the school he went to or his pick, doesn't matter, it's a stupid attitude. If he looks and performs better than other receivers then he should make the team and you should be welcoming to him being able to do so. You shouldn't be spitting some vitriolic nonsense about "I don't care how good he looks, blah blah blah", because it's just that - nonsense.

Making definitive statements about which receivers will make spots 5 and 6 is premature.

Let's let the preseason play out, and then make educated guesses. And remember, past performance is not always a good indicator of future results.
