this is according to Joe Person, so I'd probably take it with a grain of salt.


According to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, Panthers coach Ron Rivera and his offensive coaching staff were interested in drafting Wilson, as a backup to Cam Newton.
The thinking was that, if Newton were injured, the same offense could be run by Wilson.
But the Panthers viewed Wilson as a late-round pick, underscoring the extent to which most teams failed to accurately evaluate Wilson’s potential at the next level.

I mocked him to us in the fourth and never heard the end of it from all the clowns on here.

Edit-it was the third round I had him mocked to us. I had joe Adams in the fourth.

What an amazing backup we would have had if we got him. Trade bait as well. But for Wilsons sake i'm glad he got the opportunity to start and ran with it.

Poor Pickles. The Panthers were hoping to replace him with a 7th rounder.

If we had Wison and Cam on the team, which one would win the starting job?

Wilson played behind a great defense and coach. No clue who would be better if all variables were the same but I'd bet on cam. (And yes I'm biased)

there wouldn't have been a competition in training camp or preseason at all.

even if wilson blew cam away there's zero chance the reigning rookie of the year would have been benched going in to year 2 unless he started shitting the bed in real games.

Cam was ROTY, Flynn had one awesome 5 td 400 yard game. Wilson would not have even sniffed the starting job.

No brainer.


Homerism or Camerism if blatant.

No brainer that we would sit a playoff QB on the bench with NO chance to get on the field. Says a lot about us, huh.

you've watched football before right.

just checking because i can't tell.

really i want you to say, point blank, that if seattle had a quarterback who was the rookie of the year and had broken a laundry list of records going into season 2, that they'd bench him in camp for a mid round rookie.

He wouldn't have been a playoff QB if we had drafted him. I'm assuming that you think that if the Panthers had drafted him and played him over Cam, that we would have won more games last year. Not only is that improvable, but I think it is completely wrong.
