Ted Ginn joins the Panthers on a one-year deal

Recommended Posts

Ron yes, Cam no

false.

New HCs bring in there own QBs within 1-3 years pending they aren't a Superbowl QB.

GM isn't going to hire a new school HC. He already said what he believes...Ron was forced on him for a year

How are we going to make him something different as a WR than he has been the last few years?

I'd love to see it but I haven't seen the evidence.

With different players around him. Steve Smith, Greg Olsen and Cam Newton.

Steve Smith in 2010 was not the same WR. It was due to a weak cast of players around him. We thought he had lost a step, and maybe he did, but he's still one of the best in the NFL.

This will be Ginn's first opportunity to possibly play an extensive role in an offense that can chuck the ball all over the field. He didn't see that in Miami or early in SF.

3rd year....Cam takes even more on his back. Cam will be that good. I believe in Cam....and he will be unstoppable soon. Rivera will put the ball in his hands

I'd actually like to see Cam take a little less of the offense. Would love to see the running game (minus the QB) get going and open the offense up for Cam a little.

Some of you really need to lower your expectation. Just be happy with the KR/PR part and if he does anything on offense it's gravy.

We need to address the OL-the only weakness Gettlemen has not touched yet, but I agree.

Tell that to Steve Smith.

Now we are going to compare his situation to Steve Smith really???

Just don't get your hopes up to high.

Koolkat, I don't think anyone believes Ginn is gonna come in and be gangbusters this year as a WR. Most still want a WR in the first 2 rounds. But the truth is the kid can flat out fly. And if you line Ginn outside one on one, any CB in the league will have a hard time keeping up with him. Not that Rivera will use him that way, but if he did, a DC would have to account for that.

But like you said, he'll improve the return game from day one. I'll take that any day.

He'll be better than the crop of shitty return guys we have now, but people expecting him to be a good WR make me laugh

At this point..........not expectations...but rather hope.

Ginn said he wanted the chance to play WR...and not be just a return guy. Have to think he was told he would get that chance here. Hope he can make the best of it. Good thing is that his motivation is likely high. If that does not work out...we still have upgraded the return game.

I disagree. I think some people here think he has been waiting 5 years to have a Breakout season and now it will happen.

And the biggest weakness in my opinion. The guard position killed the offense last year. But Amini did get better towards the end of the season, so I'm cautiously optimistic about LG. RG needs to be upgraded. If not in FA, then I'd use a first or second. Gettleman can not go into next year with the same guys at RG. Every other offseason move on offense won't matter.

if I'm not mistaken, he did add to the ol. I don't know how everyone can think all needs can be addressed during fa. Like Mike Tyson says "this is ludicrous".
