Ted Ginn joins the Panthers on a one-year deal

As if you are in RR's back pocket when he talks of Gettis and know what you are speaking of. I recall last year that RR can't wait to see Gettis come back healthy to add his speed to blow out the top of defenses with his speed.

Ummm Gettis was healthy at the end of last year and Rivera didn't play him. Gettis showed his frustration on the sidelines. Did you pay attention last year? I'm speaking in terms of what Rivera thinks. Not what I want. I want Gettis as #3, but Rivera doesn't think so.

Don't forget linebacker, because I am not so sure I want to see Beason or Davis trying to check the Grahams and Gonzo's of the league. Now that Godfrey is the fs, we need a linebacker that can man the tight ends in this league that have been ripping a hole in our defense for the past 5 years easily.

It's easy to forget where some of the other holes are until you see on game days that tight ends always end up carry the load when their teams are down and get those big 3rd down receptions and leave our defense with their tongues hanging out because they are dog tired. That's the main reason why Anderson was let go of, he couldn't hold his own against athletic tight ends. Ever wonder why he is still available? He's a liability in game winning situations.

Yea there's still a couple others but those are the most glaring

Right now Pilares is the #3. Ginn most likely is #4 since Adams and Gettis are in Rivera's dog house. Bryant is an unknown. AE, I don't see him making it unless Rivera wants to cut Gettis or Adams.

I will never believe that a guy who has made plays in this league and had semi-respectable seasons as a wide receiver will be off the field looking at Pilares lined up in the #3 spot. He isn't THAT damn bad.

And I don't think Pilares is either, but the guy has never proved consistent. Not in 3 years.

In addition to that....what are the odds Beason and Davis can both suit up for a full season? Not great.

lol at anyone who thinks Ginn is talented enough to be a no. 3 receiver in this league

Talented enough probably is a poor choice of words....

Good enough or consistent enough is probably better. Ginn has the raw talent.

And Keuchly will be covering TEs btw. That was his biggest strength when he was drafted.

I'm excited for the signing. At the very least we know that we now have an amazing return man.

In his best season:

56 catches

790 yards

14.1 yards/catch

7 plays of 20 or more yards

4 plays of 40 or more yards

WITH CLEO fuging LEMON throwing to him, guy has never had a true opportunity under a good QB

2 seasons with over 1200 yards in kick returns

4.3 40 yard dash

Dude is a PLAYMAKER. And Cam is the perfect strong armed QB to rewrite his career.

This is what everybody should be focusing on. We have addressed two needs in one signing. His speed alone will cause some huge problems for defenses.

It doesn't mean Super Bowl but it could mean a solid Slot or #2. If, BIG IF, Gettis comes back and plays the #2. The Panthers have all sorts of speed on the Field, throw in Olsen and you can't double everybody.

I think he will provide more of a threat then Murphy did.

Well in those I formations he will but he passing situations I believe they will relieve him of his duties. I definitely don't want Keuchly covering a tight end. The dude is smart but if it's not a double team, it will be the same scenario it has been the past recent years.
