Louis Murphy and Tauren Poole

Looks like the the trade for Louis Murphy is going to be a steal assuming he can keep healthy. Probably earns the number 3 over Gettis at this rate. Wouldn't mind seeing how he looks with the first team O next game. Definitely growing more excited about the possibility of a Smitty/Lafell/ Murphy combo.

Tauren Poole looked pretty well too. I know the numbers are against him as far as making the team, but I expect him to get more carries in the next couple of games. Could be the dark horse to make the squad. Really we need 3 pure rbs anyway, and I wouldn't consider Tolbert a pure rb. I'd keep Poole, and cut Brockel who doesn't really supply any big play ability.

I know everyone on here like's Murph, but wouldn't mind seeing some thoughts on Poole and how is future may end up.

-Starting 3 WRs should be Smitty-Lafell-Murphy.

-Poole should make the team, cut Vaughn. I just hope for one time in my life to see a Panthers' coach keep the talents and cut the scrubs just bc he is "a vet or has the experience".

-Cut Brockel? whattttt? Keep Brockel and cut Hartsock.

agreed about starting WRs.

don't really agree with the other two, but it's nothing i would get into a big fight about as i don't really care.

unless one or two are special team aces, i don't really see a whole lot of benefit in keeping poole, vaughn, brockel, or hartsock. i'd rather use those spots for ST aces or defense or maybe a 6th or 7th WR or depth somewhere else. sure, it would leave us thin at a couple spots, but i think we'd be ok. i just think those spots could be better used elsewhere. at the very least i don't see the need to give them jersey's every week.

Why is Murphy going to probably win the 3? Because Gettis is injured?. . . maybe, but he hasnt proved much yet and how do you know what you have with Gettis when he hasnt practiced?

He may be starting by game1 but that doesnt mean he's going to stay there. Gettis could over take him easily if Murphy's drops become a problem. . . or the vice versa could happen, we'll see.

Agreed, I see it like Poole is basically trying out for another team right now (assuming he is not a ST ace)

Gettis has been injured for two years, and he hasn't been practicing at all, I think that's a legitimate reason to start Murphy over Gettis. You may be right about not cutting Brockel, he just hasn't shown me much. I'd rather have someone that can step in incase Jstew or Dwill goes down, and that guy is not Vaughn, Brockel, or Tolbert. As far as keeping an extra WR, who is it gonna be? AE? We at least need to sneak Poole on the PS, if we can.

Hate to see that he got a concussion today. Hope he's alright.

keep Poole...if he can contribute on special teams, I'd say let Vaughn go.

Tolbert was disappointing in his debut, but one preseason game isn't the end of the

world.

Poole could more value than Vaughn in a trade situation as well. He's got obvious heart.
