I'm really interested in what he said about FA. To me, it's critical to improve the offensive line. Gettleman can't justify drafting BPA until we get some help there. My guess is that they'll cut Gamble and Ron Edwards before March 1st (along with other guys like Armanti). Geoff Shwartz should then be targeted, just because I think we'll get better value with him. I'll be happy with a BPA heavy draft strategy then (even more BPA than Hurney). Guys like Beason and DWill may gone after June 1st to help with the cap long-term.


I'd refer back to the quotes about winning with "big guys".

Sounds like a guy who just happened to be a member of a team that won 2 fluky superbowls(people win the lotto twice) now he is bringing that expertise to the panthers.


I believe you missed the sarcasm in his post.

Always remember, and never forget. Sarcasm, logic, reason, fact, or plain ol' common sense is lost on a troll. Their inate ability to contradict any statement is a skill honed by years of experience. Don't kid yourself, they are better at this than you are. They are the goonies personified. Feed them at your own peril. They antagonize for the hits. Your participation only aids that goal.

Been that route before, haven't we?

Gettleman's philosophy is to draft to fit the system, not need. He essentially wants over time to get us in a position where the draft isn't about need, it's about depth.


So sorta like how the 49ers are now

Better teams in general, really.

You do also need to draft well to get to that point.

Alright, then it is settled, BPA. Now all that has to be done is set your draft board and wait your turn. Sounds so EASY. :)
