This whole deal kind of pisses me off. I don't know whether Te'o was in on it or not, but if he wasn't, that sucks for him. I'd feel bad for him, but quite honestly, in this day and age of the internet, there is no reason people should be getting "Catfished." Especially if you are one of the top college football players in the nation. No excuse.

Ya know, there were already a hundred reasons to be thankful we drafted Luke Kuechly last year, but here's another one to consider.

If not for Luke, we'd be a team that had a need for a middle linebacker right now, and in the discussion as a team that could draft Te'o :blink:

That is a dialogue I am extremely happy not to have any part of.

I really don't understand how Polian believes there are no character issues.

Only thing I can figure is ESPN may feel the need to defend him on some level since they reportedly had the story for ten days and sat on it. If that's the motivation, they're really defending themselves.

Me? I read that Pete Thamel transcript and came away going "oh come on, he had to be in on it".

I'm shocked the guy who drafted Rae Carruth could be blind to such things

Later that day...

Steve Reed: So, Mr. Hurney, tell us what your strategy was in this draft

Hurney: You know I always say keep your strengths strong and your weaknesses weak. We drafted the best linebacker in the draft, yet again, and made the move for Lattimore, whom I was quite shocked made it that far down. I mean his ACL snapped like silly putty and then he got an injury just last October to his other knee that sidelined him for the rest of the season, but I'm the guy that gave contract extensions to both DeShaun Foster and DeAngelo Williams after they'd finished the prior two seasons on IR, so it wasn't a huge adjustment for me. Cam Newton was a great player for us, but if 2004-2005 taught us anything it's that you need depth at RB more than anything else. Also here in Charlotte, we like to fulfill dream scenarios and focus more on being a benevolent franchise by offering chances and money to players who otherwise have no other shot at being in this league, instead of building a winning football team. By the time we got to the second round we kinda ran out of positions that were strengths on this team, so that's why we traded the rest of our draft picks this year as well as our first next year to Oakland for a 3rd round pick and picked the best longsnapper available with Matt Elam still on the board. Oakland's been through a lot so I don't feel bad sending them a little extra help to build their roster. Manti's a head case but we've had success with linebackers with head problems before, like Dan Morgan, although his issues were more of the physical sort.
