With all this talk about WR.

you'd think that more people would be excited about finally having a GM with a great eye for talent and who knows how important it is to build your WR corps.

we don't have to sit around and dream about which long shot late pick WR is going to rise up anymore.

every year I have a conversation with my father about how promising the next year looks. Until I see results, the new shiny toy shouldn't get rewarded with praise until he earns it.

While I think Gettis and LaFell can both be solid number two WRS, this team needs a new number one....

Not sure how we can completely write off Gettis. Like someone said earlier, if he was really done wouldn't he be cut like Hogan?

Maybe Rivera didn't want to push him too hard in last years meaningless second half of the season.

That said, I am all for acquiring another WR either through the draft or FA.

not so much writing him off as much as just being smart enough to know he can't be counted on. we have to move beyond the gettis dream. if he works out, great. we just have to act like he won't and we have to act as if smith is going to miss significant time due to injury or retiring.

I don't think it's completely writing him off, just not counting on him. If we get rid of Armanti and Murphy that makes room for a draft pick and Gettis/Bryant or whoever steps up

If TD can make it back so too can Gettis, however with a new GM there is no guarantee he makes his comeback in a Panthers uniform.

I suspect he will get one more offseason/preseason with us at the minimum, but I'm hardly ever right.

if gettis had TD's heart he'd be all pro.

True... But if the coaching staff hasn't seen anything I'm sure they would've released him

Maybe Gettis is done but how would we know? I don't trust Rivera's doghouse judgment yet.

I do, Joe Adams, Norman, Goodson, all good moves to bench those guys. Letting Adams back out of the doghouse was a bad move.

I am surprised no one has asked Rivera why he refused to put Gettis on the field. I would really like to know. If he really had so much confidence in Louis freakin Murphy not to give him a shot then that just brings him down even more with me.

Yeah, something must have happened between Ron and Gettis. Unless he really wasn't recovered.

It makes me sick for you people to sit at home on your couch and have the audacity to question another man's heart. How many training camps did you attend this past season? If you would have been in attendance you would have noticed a young man named David Gettis working out on that sideline everyday with a trainer trying to get back.

hmmm... perhaps you're right, i probably overstated that.

i will contend that if gettis' ceiling and raw talent is as high as it is purported to be by the huddle masses (i have long been among them) then his efforts to rehab would be manifested in phenomenal practice results (which would likely result in playing time as well.)

he's either an average receiver with good heart or a phenomenal wide receiver with not as much heart (read: desire) or some deviation from those two extremes. either way i think the huddle has him pegged as an injured calvin johnson with the heart of thomas davis and sam mills, and i don't think that's accurate.
