Gettis primed to emerge as top tier WR, per sources

I am in Gettis' corner. I have been pulling for him to get on the field, and when he did make it on the field for like 2-3 plays last season he wasn't looked at.

I still have faith that he can get the job done once he's out there. I mean, looking at the hell he had for a team his rookie season... Moore/Clausen and the Fox coaching meltdown.

If he's on the roster and healthy in TC... I think he gets spot on the team. And I believe could give Lafell a run. It'll be an up hill battle though... But I have a feeling he's up for the challenge.

But oh well, that's just me. We will just have to wait and see I guess.

He had like 2 yards playing with Clausen....LaFell was pretty much the only WR that did anything with him

Really? This smells like bullshit to me. I'd love nothing more, don't get me wrong, but come on. If Gettleman is banking on this he's off his rocker.

I know people like to claim Gettis can be great bc he made plays with Jimmy Sucks Balls Clausen.....

And that it is false statement. His plays as a rookie came under Moore and BSP. LaFell did the most with Clausen.

You don't know squat. LaFell lost the starting spot to Gettis that year. Enough said. [quote name='CRA' timestamp='1367040200' post='2211766']

what cracks me up when i'm reading all of this, is seriously........how many WRs do you people want?

We mostly run 2 and 3 WR sets and have very servicable players in Smitty, LaFell, Hixon and Ginn. Throw in Gettis and all the others and you have some young depth.

People bitching and moaning about this player or that player not being worth a damn....well...please tell me, when have they even seen the field? Like I said before, we run 2-3 wr sets since we have G-reg. I saw Adams line up at WR maybe twice, Gettis got into a game but was not even targeted, Pilares is built for the slot but he can't seem to stay healthy. Armanti, well, people have a grudge towards what Hurney did to get him here, but he has improved 100x over what he was when he was fumbling punts in 2010. Most teams only have 2-3 good receivers anyway, and if we ran more 4-5 wr sets, sure, let's get fresh blood in here, but jeez, let's focus on OL and protect Cam...i would be willing to bet that once the OL is shored up, these guys on the sideline may make a better impression.

With that being said (tl;dr): We have smitty and a couple of decent guys, let's give these guys some reps, see if they can produce and go from there. Not enough evidence pointing either way!

i honestly checked the date of this thread three separate times to make sure it wasn't one of the many other clones floating around last season. i still remember one of the ESPN analysts bringing gettis's name up as a breakout receiver to keep an eye out on, and the huddle masses rejoiced

A source I know inside the Panthers organization told me the Panthers weren't interested in WR help as they think Gettis is going to be a top tier talent now that he's over his injuries.

Yea and Santa Clause will come down that chimney every year if your good. Just sit infront of the fireplace and wait and let me know how that goes.

I know Gettis accumulated the bulk of his stats in games Clausen wasn't the QB. I know at least that.

There are plenty of old threads with all his stats broken down by QB. Same for LaFell. Simply a myth that has been disproven many times that Gettis somehow was a beast with the Jimmy...

I think this is one of the primary guys Gettleman has in mind when he says "The answers are often already on your roster" when talking about positions of need.

Yea sure. Just an arrogant excuse for not helping out the best player on your roster.
