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.

    • Hello fellow huddles. I've been a Panther fan since 2003 and usually have had the ability to watch all the games until I started at a major retail chain store in 2016.  I'm also at the bottom of the totem pole there so I have the worst scheduling hours  (ex. I have to often do a late shift one day and be back at work for an early shift the next morning , always work weekends) and 99 percent of the time I'm scheduled to work on Sundays. Apparently there's already a bunch of people in my department and elsewhere who already have Sundays off as part of their availability, so I'm guessing this is one of the reasons why I'm ALWAYS scheduled to work a late shift every Sunday it seems which is pretty much a guarantee I will miss the games this season. I've got maybe 4 days of paid time off accumulated so I guess I could pick a few games out of the season to be off on. Logic tells me that I'd probably be better served to let that keep stacking and just take a week of PTO vacation in July or something but it just sucks ass being a huge football fan and miss most of the action for the first time in my life.  I pretty much had to take this job at least in the short term last year, or just take the job that was willing to hire me the soonest honestly.  Its most certainly my fault for majoring in a dumb ass unemployable field of study in college , so I won't waste time bemoaning my living situation at this point. I'm just trying to figure out of theres anyway to at least have Sundays off. I'm guessing I could actually change my availability with the company but that's going to murder my weekly hours , I'm already part time if I miss any given day during the week I get significantly less money for rent/food/other poo I need.  I live in a small ish town in eastern NC right now. 95 percent of the jobs out here seem to be at retail/fast food oriented . I've applied to alot of jobs closer to major areas like Raleigh , Durham for the past half year but no dice so far. At this point, I'm not even sure if its possible for me to get a non retail job. Its pretty much the only thing that I have experience doing and I'm 26 so.. part of me wishes I just went to a branch of the military like alot of my high school classmates did, or gone to some trade school, or did some on the job training for a technical career out of the gate from high school, but you can say hindsight is 20/20 as the cliche goes.  The immediate suggestions would be to DVR / Record the games which isn't an option for me , can't afford expensive  100+ dollar TV packages when thats  ten percent of my monthly income , I make ends meet with this job and thats right about it.  For whatever reason I just assume that the average huddle is middle aged with a decent steady job and income living near a big city haha. Its just my imagination obviously, and what I observe through looking at pictures people post and stories they tell. Even if you don't really have much input on my senario, let me ask you this, was there ever a time in your 20s or just a time in your life where you just didn't have the ability / means to watch the games even though you still considered yourself a fan at the time? 
    • What can I make of Cameron Artis-Payne? What I don't think I can make - barring injuries - is a spot for him on this year's Panthers roster. He may surprise, but I'm not expecting it.
