You think it is better to build a run game around Newton....in a passing league....when Cam himself is the most effiecient and effective runner on team with great RBs as is?

I would rather Cam have tons of playmakers at WR than playmakers at RB. That is a no brainer. Great WRs also helps a big armed QB that may not be the most accurate QB in the NFL. Plus it is a passing league. It is like John Fox brainwashed people and they don't even realize they want Foxball.

You seem do be implying that by signing these RB 's , we hurt our chance of improving our passing offence through FA.

With the exception of Lafell and Bell ( who we have locked up for two ) we have every offensive player locked up for atleast three years.

Given his play in 2011, I don't think it's a jump to assume Smith will be a potent #1 receiver for the next two years. This is even safer to assume when you consider Newton will progress noticeably better in his overall passing ability.

Lafell manged to to get 600 yards in 2011. He will have much more snaps, knows the offence better along with experience with a 3rd year of being a Nfl Wr. And again this doesn't even factor in Newton's improvement. Looking at all this I think it's suffice to say Lafell will be at worst a solid #2.

There is logjam at number three, but between Murphy, Gettis, Pilares, Adams, Finding a serviceable one shouldn't be to hard.

Others we are set at TE along with Qb, RB, and o-line ( with a possible exception at rt)

Because of this, I don't see how the signings are going to greatly effect FA or the team for the next two years.

We have been riding the Steve Smith lottery ticket for years....that lottery money will soon run out. We never even could find a complement for him....still are looking. Now we need to be finding his replacement. Yet we are still stuck trying to find a 2 and 3.

But WR is only 1 important position we are thin at. There are tons. RB production can be found for dirt cheap...

How is that related to the RB signings? The decisions that created /creating our Wr situation started long before these two RBs signed their current contracts.
