Time to start the petition to fire gettleman, and to think he showed such promise just a day ago.

All I can do is laugh at this point. At least try to trade DeAngelo to get back in the sixth and take someone else.

This is an awful draft for the panthers.

I love the player, don't understand the fit. DWill may be gone.

Dwill and Ginn are gone next year and Adams will be cut this year.

I am going to kill myself.

If this means a DWill trade, that will be my saving grace. Other than that, this is the worst draft in recent memory.

He is a playmaker.


When LaMichael James left Eugene for the NFL after his redshirt junior season, all eyes were on Kenjon Barner as the Oregon Ducks' new feature back. Barner responded beautifully, piling up 1,767 yards, 21 touchdowns and being selected a consensus All-American. Barner finished his career as second all-time in Ducks' rushing yards with 3,598.

Gettleman is a fuging idiot... stop defending him.

No doubt you would have assembled a dynasty by now.

Excellent straight-line speed puts defenders in his dust in the open field. Accelerates after cut to burst through holes on stretch plays.. Flashes some balance and strength to spin off and churn through arm tackles to continue upfield. Eludes penetrating defenders in the holes with a quick sidestep, also has the vision to set up safeties and cut around them for big gains. Weapon out of the backfield, can catch passes with his hands inside his frame and over his shoulder and is tough to track down if hit on the run.
Runs high, and as a result, does not play with tremendous balance. Too often seeks to bounce the ball to the outside and will miss running lanes as a result. Lean build, not much strength in the lower body to power through tackles inside. Average upper-body build brings questions about ball security. Runs upright in the hole before contact comes. Rounds off or takes a couple of steps to cut on east-west runs. Hands are inconsistent, will double-catch or body-catch throws in the flat and won't always

I'm actually all for this pick if DeAngelo is gone.

Morris lit it up last season from the 6th and Barner is a stud RB imo. 2 Ducks and a Bowling Ball

I'm not complaining but it's hilarious we took an ILB and RB over S, WR, CB, TE and OT.
