If he was recovering from neck surgery and had numbness in his extremities, would you still draft him based on his "talent and skill" before the injury?

I'll answer it for you: No you wouldn't.

Would he still be considered the best player available?

No he wouldn't be.

This is no different. An ACL is a major injury. He wasn't the best player available because he couldn't come in an contribute immediately. How can you be a "player" if you can't be counted on to get on the field and "play"?


How is this different? Most analyst didn't even think Peyton would play again but people are willing to take a chance because of his potential to be good again.

The Panthers drafted Hogan based on potential because he has the ability to be a starter.

You only want guarantees, and I can tell you that is the easiest way to get fired because you miss out on the biggest rewards.

I.E. Cam Newton

Note: This has nothing to do with what injury he has, it has everything to do with the potential Hogan has.

And for heaven's sake it was fourth round pick, get over yourself.

Name one that did anything worth noticeable last year?

Any get to the Pro Bowl?

Any get All-Pro Honors?

Didn't thinks so, lay off the negativism. Why take a player that won't ever be a starter when you can draft a player that has the potential to be a starter...


I repeat, I'm not NAMING squat, not looking up any names, because I don't care "WHO" else they would've taken. All that matters is THE FACT THAT there were other CBs who hadn't had ACL surgery. This has never been about "WHO" because I don't give a crap about Brandon Hogan or any other CB that was drafted when he came out.

All that matters is THE FACT that every CB that came out in 2011 hadn't had ACL surgery. What their names are is less important than that. If none of them had names, that would still be a fact.

There are a lot of reasons why players don't excel. Doesn't mean they couldn't have if they were in a different situation.

Why don't we just re-do the entire draft? Easy to be an arm-chair GM

3 injured and 1 dead Panther player, that would be worse. It's only practice.


Yeah, my post definitely went right over your head. Definitely wasn't complaining about practice being cancelled due to storms.

There are no guarantees. Most players that are drafted don't have major injuries, and they NEVER BECOME ANYTHING special.

All that's irrelevant.

The fact is the Panthers needed immediate help at corner. Fact is Hogan had an ACL tear and from the moment he was drafted he was destined for injured reserve. Fact is he wasn't the only CB available in that draft. Fact is there were others who didn't enter the league on IR. Therefore, Hurney should've drafted a CB that didn't enter the league on IR.

@josephperson

DT Andre Neblett getting 1st-tm reps tonight. Interesting as Neblett is suspended first 4 games for violating PEDs policy.

Maybe the Panthers should move TC to Boone since App St has an indoor training facility. Weather would never be an issue :)

Thought that would shut you up. Typical armchair GM, happy to criticise but doesn't have an alternative answer.


Why would a question that had ZERO TO DO with the facts shut me up? As far I'm concerned, it wasn't even asked.
