Costliest injuries during the 2012 season

8 posts in this topic

Honorable mention:

Chris Gamble, CB, Carolina Panthers Before his injury, Gamble surrendered a reception once every 20.5 coverage snaps. Captain Munnerlyn allowed one every 9.5 coverage snaps in relief.

Gamble makes sense, he's a terrific corner. I thought the secondary played pretty well without him, considering the only player with experience was Captain Munnerlyn and he's really only a nickel back. It shows we can survive without Gamble, provided Norman and Thomas take a step forward and we draft a decent late round CB and sign a cheaper veteran that can start.

Edit: With no Gamble, Beason and Kalil, our team really missed out on some good talent this year. If Beast and Kalil come back strong, they are going to help out so much.

If we cut Gamble, we're going to need to bring in a viable Vet to take his place (just my opinion).

All our other corners are green as hell, and we aren't even positive if we are bringing back the Captain.

No one I know of questions Gamble's ability.

His durability though? At this point, a big question mark.

I can see us bringing back Captain as a nickel-only back, but if that happens, you can bet Gamble is gone. Quinton Jammer makes sense. He'd likely only command $2-3 million and is good enough to start most games. If Norman improves, he can start too.

Agreed. Its kind of sad that we wasted so much of Gambles career by letting Foxy put him in zone coverage so often. If he'd be willing to take a fat pay cut I'd be all for keeping him. The fact that the team has proven he is a luxury along with his age and injury history of late does not warrant keeping him for even half his current price tag tho.

I doubt he'd be willing, but if Gamble did take a huge, huge paycut (like $5 million per year) in order to stay with the Panthers, he'd become on of the favorite players of the astute fan. Having Gamble, Thomas, Captain and Norman would give us a very serviceable secondary. Now if only we had another good safety to add to the mix...

I think thats where the problem is, pretty much everyone knows for him to be worth us keeping, he'd be vastly gimping his actual worth. I just hope we don't flat out cut him and try to get a 6th/7th for him at least.

    • To me this off-season it makes the most since to keep CAP or Foz if it comes down to those two. CAP may be average, but that's as a 1st and 2nd down back which CMC, & Whit are not at this point from a full time perspective.  CAP is the best option to maintain a physical runner in the event (likely-hood) Stewart has to miss a couple games as he tends to each season.  I think it's common sense at this point. If we look at Stewart for what he is ''right now'' aside from pass protection there is not '' a lot'' that really separates him from CAP in my opinion, a few years ago it was a bigger gap, but at this point in Stewart's career he's becoming just a power runner, CAP is the closest we have to that. 
    • Dummy, come on man.    Rivera and DG tanked that game for a high pick. You guys know nothing about running a team.    The question now is, do we as huddles think you're a decent poster anymore. Answer is "no".
