As it's becoming more and more obvious that Chris Gamble is not going to be a Panther next season, I feel like this had to be stated. Whether you agree or disagree about it being our biggest need, I think it can be agreed that it is a hole that's going to need to be filled.

So what do y'all think we do? Does Gettleman show some of that personnel savvy and pick us up a cheap free agent? Do we address this in the draft? And if so, when? 1st round? 2nd? 4th? 5th? With Milliner likely going before pick #14, are there any other prospects that could be the BPA at that pick? Rhodes? Banks? Trufant? Or do we try to find one of those guys at pick #44 or beyond?

gamble is a player we can move away from and barely notice. he's not a difference maker. we're not any better or worse of because of him being on or off the field.

it's not any more of a need than it was before.

Thank you, i said this on the other post. We need to draft best CB available at 14 and/or get Sean Smith.

if we improve our front 7 our DB's will instantly become better.

when was the last time Gamble played any way?

That's crazy talk. Our pass defense is better with Chris Gamble on the field. The only reason we didn't get thrown all over in the second half of the season was because the D-Line was on fire. I would not feel comfortable going into the season with Munnerlyn, Norman, Thomas, Dockery and some late rounders / UDFAs as our lineup in the secondary.

We have so many needs that I have forced myself into putting blind in faith in Josh Norman,Josh Thomas,and James Dockery since we survived without Gamble when we finally turned it around and started winning.

I defended Hurney many times but now the more I analyze our cap situation and the major whiffs he had when trading future picks I am starting to think I was just being a homer.

How many games did we win without Gamble in 2012?

How many games did we lose with Gamble in 2012?

Yeah, that logic holds as long as we have Hardy and Johnson going up against bad O-Lines like San Diego's. The minute we go up against any type of stout line, where out tackles can't collapse the pocket and the ends only break contain every second or third play instead of every down, we're going to get thrown on for 500 yards.

Chris Gamble has been a non-factor for the Panthers for a long time. Why would cutting him now all of the sudden change things drastically? Obviously we need CB help. Everybody knows that. But We also need D line help, O line help, safety help, wide receiver help, and help at several other positions.
