Gettis = Ryne Robinson


Gettis, did more his rookie season, than Ryne Robinson done his entire career. Dumb Comparison.

Hah, you guys sure did get worked up over my comments earlier. Here's my point though: the player can and does work correctly and if it isn't there something wrong on your end. The problem with the player is that is has TONS of compatibility issues and is buggy as all hell when everything isn't up to date, so in that regard it's a poo program - I agree. My only point was that if it's not working correctly then it's something that you have the power to rectify and it's not technically because the player is broken.

I don't think it's so much that we are worked up about your comments as it is venting about the problems at Panthers.com.

Just in this thread, 10 people have mentioned problems watching videos on the site. That tells me that, yes, there is a big problem. If a website only works for those that have perfectly healthy machines, or have the tech savvy to work around the glitches, it is not a very well designed and managed site.

I am going to send them an e-mail inquiring about the problems. When I get a response, it will be shared on here.

I really hope things workout for Gettis Health wise. I know a lot of people are questioning his ability after so long but I honestly believe he is the only guy on our current roster that has the ability to be a future #1 WR. He showed all the tools with really really really bad QB play. He's big, fast and runs good and occasionally great routes. Also showed up on big catches in crunch time.

I had a good feeling as soon as the draft pick was announced and I'm sticking by my gut feeling. That being said; I was pissed about LaFell and he is proving me wrong thankfully.

Chrome extensions are vastly inferior to Firefox's, although the latter has gotten really bloated over the years. Still, Chrome has its quirks and poor developer tools compared to Firebug on Firefox.

Nice potty mouth :mellow:

FWIW I am about as computer illiterate as they get and I have no problem watching vids at panthers.com since the brothers in the sun tour passed us by.

My point is this: Ryne Robinson had lots of potential, got hurt, and never recovered from the injury. The Panthers expected big things from him, and he had flashes in his rookie year. I'm concerned about Gettis' health. He was injured 12-months ago, and still not ready to go. Even Davis is ahead of Gettis in recovering...after 3 major knee injuries. If healthy, Gettis has a great opportunity, but nobody including the Panthers has seen him play since 2010. Not doubting his ability, just doubting his health.

According to Gettis himself he is recovered from the injury that held him out last year. His knee is fine but he now is nursing a hamstring injury. As we know with Beason, they tend to linger and I am in no rush to rush either of them back.

Agreed. If I was a young guy that got injured my rookie year, I would be cautious about returning too soon. A lot of these guys only have a chance for one big contract in their careers. No purpose in destroying themselves before they get to that point.

It sounds like the training staff is working hard to strengthen Gettis' lower body. So perhaps they believe with a bit more time and effort, they can get a nice long-term return. Listening to recent comments by RR and David, I don't think he is in danger of getting cut. If we can give David more time while simultaneously developing guys like Murphy and Pilares, it's a big win for us.

Wish I had the same warm fuzzies about Hogan, but I don't.
