LOL, Jt, no matter what you quote. You only need to look at Steve Smith. How much of a headache has he been and how immature he was during the start of his career, until now. I'm sure Titus can relate more to Smith being from around the same area, being a small wide receiver, probably questioned for his height like smith.

We all write off Smith's mishaps for the passion he shows and has for the game. Not doing the same for other players that show the same mannerisms as smith would be asinine.

There isn't anything lost with giving Young a chance, pick him up for under a million, 550k to be exact. Ride out his contract. Let him know this his fresh start and we don't want any Lions incidents. The minute he doesn't comply, you cut him. That's it.

To me this is a no brainer. He'd be instantly a #2 here. I'm not too sure he'd be a #1 but the jury is still out on that matter in my opinion.

So you're saying it's a good idea to have 2 of those type players not even in the same locker room but in the same wr corp??

Are you fuging crazy??? Cam would be breaking up fights in the huddle in TC.

No way in hell would i put my young franchise QB thru that poo.

Sorry. I can't get on board with this.

The kid doesn't realize how the league looks at people that try to hurt their own team. I don't want him here. LaFell is a better all around player. To some of you here, talent = speed and elusiveness and that's the only criteria for evaluating a player. LaFell is much more sure handed, catches passes in traffic, and blocks like a beast.

Anybody that sets their team up to lose has no heart and plays for themselves. So that's where he should play. All alone.

I remember when people didn't want Shockey because of his character issues and how Smitty and him would throw blows at each other. I remember when Smitty and Shockey did get in a confronta-oh wait, It didn't happen.

Not even in the same ball park. Shockey was a vet with a ring and Steve respected him. Young is a punk and there is no reason Smith will respect him or his opinion and that will cause fraction. You have to learn how to match personalities when building a team. You don't remember how the Keyshawn and 89 thing worked out? Or the Jarret and Smith combo? That is to many egos in one huddle. I'll pass on that poo.

He was still known for his 'attitude' and how Smith any him wouldn't get along. How do you know he respected him right off the bat? You don't. For that matter I don't either. But there isn't any evidence to say he had a problem with him or not. Other than the fact that they weren't indeed down each others throats.

I'm absolutely tired of seeing the Panthers Pass up talents because of minor issues. Then seeing other teams take a chance and make profit out of it. Seriously tired of it.

To be fair, Shockey's character issues mainly were just his being kind of a douchebag.

I don't recall him ever threatening to retire if he didn't get the ball or doing anything so bad that a team cut him.

He was a attitude with a ring and some knowlege. Not a punk who has done nothing but expects every thing.

Dont be an idiot.

If Young was so great the Lions woulda traded him instead of cutting him. Hell, if Young was as good as he thought he was they would have drawn up more plays for the dude. Yet NONE of that happened except for Detroit handing his punk ass a pink slip.

This is why you (thankfully) arent a GM. You dont put a cancerous cell like Young in the middle of a younger team. Maybe if there were some true Vet leadership here(ala this yrs Ravens) then maybe ya do. THIS Carolina Panthers team tho? No. Ya dont do it.

In time you'll realize how moronic your argument is.
