I'm with you. Indifferent and hoping that if called upon he could produce something. Certainly not going to hate on a guy in a Panthers uniform.

Valid points, I agree. Some will hate the guy regardless. He is a panther, deal with it.

I think everyone should make their own Armanti thread.

First, he's a Panther. Therefore, I'm pulling for him to do well.

Lastly... Nothing else matters!

I agree, converting a QB to a WR isn't going to result in an immediate stud WR and return man......but Armanti's pace in converting has been an utter joke being a 3rd round pick.

First 2 seasons of some the more recent coverted QBs and what they did as a WR/returner (those since 2000)

Armanti Edwards (3rd round investment)

WR- 0 rec, 0 yards, 0 TDs

Returner - 211 yards, 0 TDs, 11 yard KO avg, 5 yard PR avg.

Josh Cribbs (undrafted)

WR - 11 rec, 98 rec yards

Returner - 2644 yards, 2 TDs. 24 yard KO avg, 8 yard PR avg.

Julian Eldeman (7th round investment)

WR - 44 rec, 445 yards, 1 TD

Returner - 625 yards, 1 TD, 21 yard KO avg, 14 yard PR avg.

Brad Smith (4th round)

WR - 41 rec, 386 yards, 2 TDs

Returner - 187 yards, 18 yard KO avg.

Antwann Randel El (2nd round)

WR- 84 rec, 853 yards, 3 TDs

Returner -1998 yards, 3 TDs, 21 yard KO avg, 9 yard PR avg

Matt Jones (1st round)

WR - 77 rec, 1,075 yards, 9 TDs

Ronald Curry (7th round)

WR - 5 rec, 31 yards

Returner - 68 yards. 22 yard KO avg.

So it is fair to say Edwards is a project and we shouldn't expect a QB to be a great WR/return man quickly...but he is a failing project right now. We spent a 3rd on a guy who has done less than any noteworthy QB to WR/returner in recent time. So it isn't stupid to suggest he should of done more at this stage. Suggesting he should be better isn't claiming he should be AJ Green with PP's return ability.

Actually we spent a 2nd to move up in the third. Which makes it even worse.

He was a third, but his cost was a next year second.
