Some also would argue it is a case of the existing panther being downplayed and the new guy being overstated.

People are going on and on about Hixon's random clutch catches.....but isn't that pretty much EXACTLY what LaFell did?

I think we have two of the same guy...which is good bc both are better than the rest on the roster



Thats why I called it legitimate competition.

Gettlemen has improved the competition level at DB and WR, and DL. That is nothing to quibble over. We still have the draft, and FA is still going strong. So we will be adding more pieces along the way.

We are a better team now than we were last year. With a little luck, we will be even better by the start of the year. IF we start 3-0 the Homers will be out of their minds with glee. The realists will be telling us we could still go 3-13.

So I guess the question becomes. For those folks afraid of the future, what will it take for you to regain your faith?

Better talent at the back end of the roster should improve ST and depth.
A young and improving team, with a solid core, that got a taste of victory last year
A coach and a franchise QB both in their 3rd year
A Defense that finished strong got upgraded
An Offense that could be scary good


All legitimate reasons to be giddy over the future.

I cant believe that no one has mentioned that Mike Cox was an honorable mention FB.
