Panthers haven't decided whether to elevate WR David Gettis to the 53-man roster. They have until Tuesday, per interim GM Brandon Beane.[/quote]

barring some ridiculous injury to lafell or smith between now and then, if it hasn't happened by now it ain't gonna happen.

Welp, Lafell isn't going to play this weekend. They need to cut Armanti and give Gettis a shot.

I will never understand why Armanti is still on this team, it's getting pathetic. And yet, you still have some people defending him, while the some of the same people want Cam gone.


What a fuges up and stupid ass hick fanbase we have.

I'd rather see Clausen go first.

I don't see Gettis having any impact if he is activated. Just IR him

Willing to bet he'd have more of an impact than Edwards. He's a waste of a roster spot.

Yeah he can. Gettis had bright spots 2 years ago. Murphy showed flashes in 2009 and 2010 and hasn't been impactfull. Gettis maybe a fan favorite, but he really hasn't earned in the love yet.

At least Reed is giving us some tidbits on this potentially impact situation (with our only other legitimate threat at WR being in danger of missing time, and a potential big play threat rejoining the squad to potentially help that loss). Person is a joke.

The CO has articles about how two bad teams squaring off could be a good matchup, about London Fletcher being a defensive iron man, about Meadlock's unique situation, and about trades that didn't happen. Fug yes CO!!!

All I know is the dude needs to show up and work, i would have cut him long ago but this team likes to hold onto people like this.

LOL...have you seen Murphy play this season!? I'm sure Gettis can drop 8 out of 10 passes thrown his way. And Armanti has had 1 reception....I'll repeat it again...Gettis can't be worse. He might not be better, but he sure as HELL cant be worse than non existent.

I don't see what they have to lose. Activate Gettis and move the safety Campbell down to the PS.

We ran Legadu out on the field damn near all year, and Gettis couldn't be worse than Legatron.

Okay. I agree. Yeah he cant be worse. Read your initial post as implying he would easily be better. My bad.

Ya didn't mention Murphy or Armanti for a reason

I simply said Gettis would likely be ineffective. So what's the point

The point is everyone outside of Smitty and LaFell are ineffective, so there would be no difference if Gettis is activated.

I'd say the other point is Murphy and Edwards have both had 7 games on the active roster this year and have basically nothing to show. Granted Gettis may do nothing, but like everyone is saying, no way he does worse.

Oh yea, Edwards blows. Worst draft pick of the Hurney's career. Brown a close 2nd.

I just don't get why they're treating Gettis like he is some scrub UDFA... We saw him play on this level. He can contribute, much moreso than several of the guys we have on the active roster right now. He's had a long time to heal, only complications I could see is stamina/conditioning... What is the hold up? He can help us.

It went from Wednesday to Friday to Tuesday. Hopefully he's healed because this will be his shot to impress whoever comes in next.
