Why Clausen and Edwards are Panthers

Not THE reason...but potentially a reason.

I think Hurney takes great pride in being able to boast the Panthers have more drafted players on their roster than team X. Yeah, team X may win more games...but it is something Carolina has hung their hat on and bragged about to a degree in recent years.

Not about them. Big picture. Drafted players carry more weight and are given a longer leash....it is how Carolina gets to boast they have more drafted guys on their roster than anyone else. Sounds good. Makes their drafting sound better as well.

I disagree.

Ok. Then why are they here? Why have other hung around painfully longer than most teams generally allow?

You don't believe a guy who drafts players would like to boast about his roster being largely made up of guys he drafted? Sure does sound like he is a good drafter compared to everyone else.

[/quote]I see what you're saying. But it seems more Hurney doesn't want to admit his mistake rather than boasting to keeping draft picks...

I don't know about AE, but there are worse 3rd string QB than Clausen. He knows the offense well if the worst should happen.

Actual reasons:

The other wide receivers we had were either awful or too noob.

Hurney really wants to keep 3 QBs.

Clausen? Cheap, 3rd string, young QB.....Armanti? I'm on the fence, but probably young, can throw, can field a punt without fumbling, and Gettis is off the table right now...and both could be inactive often

Draft picks are generally given EVERY chance EVERY year, no matter what organization it is.

Rare is the organization that will admit error after only two years. It ain't just Hurney.

That could be another reason. In the OP I didn't claim it was the only reason....just potentially A reason.

He knows the offense, but he can't run it because .4 seconds after the ball is snapped the game becomes to big for him.

I can name many many examples of franchises moving on after 1 or 2 years.....it isn't actually that rare. Rare here.

I didn't think they would be cut. Carolina doesn't move on from guys. Get drafted and you easily get 3 yrs regardless.

The examples you'd list, compared to the ones that are kept, would be VASTLY outnumbered.

The reason they are on the team is because individuals FAR smarter than anyone here thinks they should be. Period. No one here would ever even remotely have a chance to be a GM or HC. Everything this FO does is right compared to the viewpoints on this sitre because those individuals making the decesions are better than any one here. Not a hard concept to grasp.

Edwards is a converted QB who has never made a NFL catch....he is as noob as anyone.

Hurney said he likes the QB room is as why Jimmy is staying. LOL....he couldn't even talk about Clausen's play, potential or fit in the offense. Cam probably likes to goof on Mr. Supercut and they have fun....sort of what Hurney implied. They get along....therefore he earns a roster spot. I bet a lot of guys wished meshing in the meeting room was all it took....

Edwards is here because Gettis is on the PUP and Tutu failed to capitalize on numerous opportunities. He probably wont be here after week 6.

Clausen is here because he is a 3rd string QB. Most teams have a 3rd string QB. Miami even kept 4.

The shepherd and sheep concept again. Don't try to think outside the box. Think what you are told to think.

True. But it is easy to name a franchise that has parted with a draft pick early on....so it isn't rare that you can go through every team and name
a mistake they admitted to.....just not Carolina

I think Edwards hangs around because Big Cat got laid back in the day when Wofford played Appalachian.

Name a team with a 3rd string QB that doesn't fit the offense has no potential to develop into a player to run their offense?

I am all about 3 QBs. I am about 4 counting practice squad. A warm body isn't a reason though....
