Further evidence that WR trumps O-Line as a need (PFF edition).

some acutally was.

agreed.

everyone wants to find that one reason for something bad happening when its very rarely ever the case. usually its several factors. WRs share in the blame for QB pressures and sacks. any non-narrow minded person who actually watched can see that.

That isn't the WR depth chart....bc all those guys won't be on the team next season

at least 2 of AE, gettis, and pilares will probably be gone next year. none of them will be here after next year barring some miraculous breakout.

As OP so eloquently pointed out, even when our stellar OLine gave Cam more than enough time to find a reciever, Smitty is too old and inept to get open. Just cut him and move on.

Hey, skewing words and making your own opinions IS more fun. Neato!!!

Your doing exactly what you accused me of doing. Hypocrite.

Also, OP neglected to include this from the article, which helps explain the numbers-

A lot of times, Cam was pressured immediately, and his ability to scramble and buy time saved him from being sacked. We gave up 36 sacks-how many would that have been if not for Cam running away from the defense?

Time to throw stat was the first one I put in bold. If your going to dispute what I said at least read it.

exactly. i remember seeing Cam go thru several reads waiting for someone to come open before getting sacked or pressured as well as OL missing blitzes or just getting beat.

You can say that about a lot of teams.

For example: We sacked Matt Ryan how many times?? And some of those were coverage sacks. And he has White, Jones , and Gonzo as receiving Threats.

LOL if cam gets injured because of a piss poor line AOL because we took a WR and no oline help. I don't want to hear it from the fans later on about the o line being to blame.

I would select a linemen over a WR 9 times out of 10, especially considering there are no outstanding WRs this year....but what do I know?

The only one remotely close to that is Keenan Allen. Even he's not a consensus #1 or to the level of Jones or green a few years back. Sadly Allen is the one worth the 14 in my opinion.

I think you get better value from a 2nd round WR though. But yeah, anybody thinking Panthers should completely ignore the oline position, when you have franchise QB....then I don't know what say.

Oh yes of course, the problem is we are not allowing Armanti more time to run complex routes, got it!

If there was an award for "Post of the day", you would surely win it with this one!

Anyone that attended games last year will tell you two things.

1. Cam didn't have enough time to throw the football.

2. When he did have time there was usually not an open reciever.

It's a double edged sword both work together. I think WR is the bigger issue as the roster sits at this point. Bell and Amini will continue to get better while I don't think Lafell will ever be a #1 target and we need smitty in the slot to extend his career.

This is a really good post and I could not agree more.
