Did AE's catch seal Gettis' fate?

No. I could have caught that. Not hating, but that secondary did a terrible job on that play. Gettis > Edwards.

I'm an App homer and I'm just happy he made a play and it helped the team. Is that so wrong?

Nope...he'll still be on the team and it was great play. We'll roll with 7 WRs IF we activate Gettis. I hope he CAN do some things if he gets more chances.

Gettis's injury and his ability to get over it or not will determine his fate with the team. One play by Edwards will not.

If Gettis doesn't make the team, he'll likely burn us when we play him on a different team 5 years down the road.

The fact that Armanti Edwards wasn't cut this week to make a roster spot for David Gettis just proves this organization is a joke.

Uh....no...

First of all he was too slow to just straight run past everyone. Second, he didn't have the football instincts to cut back inside to the right and easily score...

Can we just cut this fuggin guy already... The guy makes one catch and the App homers go crazy! I understand having pride in your alma mater but damn, he is not the next Wes Welker! Give it up already... When we cut him he will be out of football.

I think it did imo, Gettis will likely be placed on IR, too bad he can't get right. I always thought he had the talent.

I don't think Armanti's catch did anything to alter the WR hierarchy behind Smitty. He was wide open because of a blown coverage. It's not like he burned anybody with a sick double-move or anything. IMO Edwards' catch was so awesome because it was so unexpected. But most of that play was just luck and Smith's block, not Edwards' skill as a receiver. I do have to give him credit for catching the ball, though. Sometimes it's easy to become the deer in the headlights when you know that if you drop the ball, you're going to get some serious backlash.

Got to love the Huddle. AE gets rewarded from busted coverage with one catch and the App Homers are ready to make him our #3.

What huddle forum are you reading? everyone i see is saying how AE was slow after the catch and it was a broken coverage and we should kick him off the team, minus a select few huddlers who don't hate on our players after they do something good.

Two things....Watch the replay. He couldn't cut back because the DB took the proper angle the whole time and kept him pinned to the sideline. He got what he could.

Second...He should get at least some props since he spent the week, according to Panthers beat writers, mostly running the scout team to prep for RG3. D looked pretty good in stopping him so I guess he did a pretty good job of that.

But no...this does not seal Gettis' fate. I've said on here many times I hope he is cut so he can move on and I can start reading about the Panthers and stop see all the AE, App State, and Boone haters spending all their time spewing. They can then move on to the biggest bust of all time spewing and the rest can get on with our lives. It will be nice to come on here and not have to see people ripping my hometown and university just because they don't like a person who had nothing to do with when and where he was picked.

Before Gettis got hurt I thought he was better then LaFell, now LaFell has played himself into the 2 spot and everyone is screaming for AE after one catch? I'd rather see what Gettis does when healthy

I doubt it, because Pilares is having an MRI tomorrow. Depending on how that goes, Gettis could have an open position on the team.

Or, you know, WE COULD USE JOE ADAMS

What are they getting the MRI done on? Looked like he was having a problem with the arm/elbow area but never heard anything about it.
