Seems to me Rivera still feels like he can play for his job and is unwilling to experiment with the 'could be's' of the team. He doesn't have the luxury of being able to focus on the long term development of players.

I get that, but it seems like Gettis would be a potential upgrade immediately.

Gettis dropped RR's punk card; RR left it right there on the field.

Doubt gettis is in game shape, also doubt he understands most of the playbook. Hes been active 3 weeks, he isn't going to make an instant impact

Gettis will be a starter next year for us and have a break out season

But it's not like hes just sat on his ass all year...didn't testeverde come in from sitting on the couch at 40 years old for us and have an impact winning his first game in like 3 days? I hate the whole "won't make an instant impact" bullshit, specially when they aren't even getting a chance

im predicting gettis will be a roster casualty when the new GM does work on this team in the offseason

New Chapter in Carolina over the horizon...many losers and bums will be kicked out the door

I doubt it though. At the most Gettis should at-least play once until the season is over

If he doesn't know the playbook by now, then he must be LD. He's had nothing to do but study the playbook for more than a year and a half. Being in game shape is one thing, but if he doesn't know the plays by now, he doesn't deserve a spot on anyones roster.

Reading a playbook and being able to run them are two different things, it took LaFell most of last season before he even began to have a clue

Compare what a QB does to what a Receiver does. One takes the snaps, either hands it off to the RB or throws it, the other either blocks a defender or runs a full route. The physical exertion between the 2 positions is vastly different.
