Jonathan Stewart Signs Five Year (36.5 Million) Contract Extension


Best Answer Kurb, 11 August 2012 - 05:38 PM

I would say I am shocked so many of you fail to see the implications of this waste of money in RunningBacks, then I remember Im the local badguy lately for saying we spend too much on runningbacks and you are all incredible homers. Go to the full post

I didn't know you ever worked in a front office and were qualified to judge what is a good deal or not. Do you honestly think that Richardson who is a billionaire would keep Hurney around for years if hee felt he was wasting his money and doing a crappy job? JR could hire a bunch of GMs and yet he stays with Hurney likely on the advice of his experts and his own opinion. You think he got as far as he did keeping incompetent people???

Makes me wonder if CRA and others wait for this to happen so they can have a platform to stand on when it comes to their opinion that the Panthers are ignoring other positions.

Fact is, Panthers rarely spend big to bring in talent through free agency.
A LOT of fans hate it, and don't under stand it.

While I, myself, have been hoping the Panthers would have addressed the tackle position, I know the contracts of our stud running backs isn't keeping the Panthers from adding free agents, if they wanted to.

It's obvious, the Panthers are comfortable moving ahead with the talent we have on defense.
They have a plan, and we fans aren't privy to it. I'm not going to chastise them just cause I don't know their plan, or don't agree with it.

As a Panther fan, I remember the lesson learned when ya don't have enough quality backs. The Panthers remember too.

We had them both for cheap for years, now we have to pay.

We have talent on defense. While it's been awhile since we've seen it all come together, ya can't expect the worse every year.

Ron Rivera loves defense. He is working hard to get ours back to a high level.
Are ya going to watch him do it, or are ya just going to harp every chance ya get, specially in preseason, when ya haven't even seen what we have yet.


when Carolina has won, FA agent moves have been part of that.

The teams from our division going to the postseason (2 of them since our last visit)....have FA moves making an impact.

It is also a passing league now. We have an aging Steve Smith at WR and a bunch of hope and potential.

What I learned in 2005 was we were a one man offense. It was called Steve Smith. No one took him out of a game all season or the postseason until that Seattle game. When that option was taken away, Fox could not adjust....and in game adjustments were something he never could do well. You think we lost that game b/c Foster or his scrub backup couldn't go?

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.
