Ted Ginn joins the Panthers on a one-year deal

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

That statement along, has me gasping for air. I love this pick up.

If were counting on him to be a weapon at receiver for us we have some serious issues, and fans are going to be fuming when he drops a crucial ball for us next year.

He'll be a strong returner. He'll contend with Gettis for the 4th WR spot.

That's what were looking at here guys.

this. i don't think we are signing him with the exception of being a real weapon at receiver. i think he will see time on the field as a WR, but only as a deep threat guy and probably not very often. but that is secondary to the real usefulness he has and that is as a return guy. he's the first real return threat we've had in years. of course blocking has to improve, but we've just had projects and rookies returning the ball and aside from one or two miracle returns against STs that were even worse than ours (and i'm looking at pilares) it's just been pathetic who we've asked to do the job.

i think we got an upgrade at ST coach...not rodgers, but dehaven who is the asst. ST coach for now. that guy knows how to put STs together. i suspect he'll have the job by the end of the year. it's a joke that he's got to be rodgers assistant but whatever....point is that we've got better coaching and a better returner. blocking should be better. results should be better.

And who's the phantom #3 receiver you've got in mind?

another FA or an early draft pick. the #3 isn't on the roster right now.

Are people not tired of waiting for stupid unrealistic crap that isn't going to happen?

"Imagine what Proehl can do with him!!!"

What is our first year WR coach going to do with a guy who had one two catches for one yard last year? Has he never had a position coach before?

I like Ricky as much as the next guy but he isn't king midas. There's only so much you can do with poo-poo.

What's wrong with Ginn being signed to simply be a great returner? Why are people so resistant to the idea of adding legitimate talent at the receiver position like every other team instead of this lunatical idea that this is year he finally "gets it" or "maybe this late round pick is a gem."

The Carolina Panthers of the past decade are the only team who built their roster on dreams and fantasies. It's time to be serious.

Hell I'll chip in some of my own money if it means we sign Danario Alexander.

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.

They might also move Thomas Davis to his old SLB position where he was good at covering TEs. I'm not sure if he can still do that though, depends on training camp.

Well, a good QB makes all the difference in the world and fitting what a team does.

Pair Steve Smith with Clausen and you would be lucky to see 500 yards and 1 TD from Smith.

Pair Syndey Rice with Brett Favre and magically he is a huge playmaker after doing diddly poo prior

Problem is you need blocking to get those numbers.

Agreed.
