I Feel Sorry for Mike Shula

feel bad for Cam.

Said it the moment Gettlemen arrived. He isn't sold on being the GM for a Newton/Rivera offense. Too old school to build with that mindset.....he hinted on that early IMO.

drafting offense for them....big picture doesn't make sense if you aren't sold on that direction

You don't think Eli and his seemingly rag-tag group of receivers had much to do with their superbowl runs? Gettleman aint putting us in win now mode.

I feel sorry for Cam, his rookie year will be the best offense he has in Carolina. I am happy we upgraded the D line tho.

I am not quite sure why people are so upset. We actually have playmakers. Yes we need to draft a WR as a future Smitty replacement but there are definitely no 4-7 picks that will take his place much less beat out Smith, Lafell, Gettis, Hixon, Ginn.

We basically would be drafting a WR to compete against Joe Adams, Armanti and Lamont Bryant. That doesn't sound like a smart idea. Its better to go for depth and special teams help.

nailed it

Trust me. We're going run heavy and strong defense again!!!!! People forgets that we have talents on offense. We're terrible on defense! Not anymore.

You can't exactly expect anyone in the 4-7 rounds to be an immediate contributor, and Shula is just a 1 year rental. These picks don't affect him in the slightest, imo.

You realize, to a large degree....that includes Cam/Rivera as such.

Newton isn't a Gettlemen guy...

I rather play tough defense and win close game than trying to blowout games with no defensive help.

How is any OC expected to be successful without 5th round WRs to squeeze in the depth chart between Ginn and the practice squad?

what he said^^

Not true. Patton will produce. Alot of starters in the league come from later rounds. Just ask teams with rings.

Normally id agree about not finding immediate starters in rds 4-7 but this was a pretty deep class and wouldn't be surprised to see some of these 3rd day guys start

Gettis is a sixth rounder who hasn't played in 2 years.

Hixon is a run of the mill 3rd WR

Ginn is a train wreck at WR.

If Gettleman is unable to find a guy better than any of these three, we've made a pretty big hiring mistake.

We have to start letting Cam manage games like a Wilson or Kaep than trying to put the game on his shoulder. Play hard defense, run the ball, and manage the offense.

For sure, Rivera is definitely a lame duck just like Shula. This next season is a throw away year- all our significant moves are designed for 2014 and beyond. Gives Gettleman time to fix the damage done by Hurney but doesn't put a coach who is "his" guy into a hole from a bad 1st year.
