LMAO! If stats dont mean much what the hell else are we supposed to look at for players? Why the hell is there even a HOF? I predict you are terrible at predictions.

As long as you are using the right stats it is useful.

The ones posted earlier don't mean much.

Gamble was top 3 in completion % against in these last few years that he has 'underperformed.'

But what is missing from that equation is what an utter joke our secondary became.

So the fact it was so tempting to throw at comically weak teammates....helps Gamble's numbers. We pretty much have had him out there with a cast that should be backups throughout the entire secondary.

One of my favorite all-time Carolina Panthers....

This is a sad day. All time favorite Ohio State buckeye. Thanks for your service, Chris.

Am I the only one who's not sad to see Gamble go?

He ended his last two seasons here playing really well, but he never lived up to his talent. I always thought he was more capable than how he played. He never really became that franchise cb for us. His best years were his first two seasons. Other than that, he had a very mediocre career as a Panther.

He lacked leadership really bad. Never became a leader for our young secondary group and we needed that badly. Godfrey had to take that role from him. I'm ready to bring in guys that wanna be leaders in here.

I said completion %, not catches allowed. Of what was thrown toward him, he was among the best in the league at shutting it down.

I've heard he is a really quiet guy. Some lead by actions not words. Chris played well for us. I'm gonna miss him, but the future is now.

3.7 million under.

So...still no room to do anything

Not true.

Case in point, Joe Flacco. He just signed a gazillion dollar contract extension. His cap hit this year? $6.8 million. So yeah, we could definitely do something with nearly $4 million in cap space.

He might be. Peppers was also and many questioned his leadership but Peppers' plays on the field was unquestionable. Many can say Pep was inconsistent and in dissapear in Hanes but he impact the game still even when he doesn't put up stats.

Gamble started his career with a boom but suddenly became very quiet. I was hoping to see more. I remember once we were playing in Ariz and Larry was either in his rookie or 2nd year. Larry was killing whoever was our other cb in the first half badly. Foxy finally moved Gamble to Larry and pretty much shut him down the whole 2nd half. That's how good he could've been.

CB has been a problem in Carolina for so long I can't remember when it wasn't. But Gamble brought stability and was often getting caught out of position simply because the Panthers never found another CB worth a damn to play alongside him.
