ESPN's Football Outsiders red flags the Carolina Panthers WR position

Recommended Posts

There were a few years in there, yeah... but Lafell is developing quite well... Olsen is a solid target... I'd like to get someone to push and replace Smitty at #1 so we can shift him around some more, but we actually added depth at WR this year which is where I think we needed it.  Of our top 3 targets, we've got an elite receiver, a near-elite TE, and a good WR.  After that, things fell off.  That's (hopefully) changed.

Lafell had 4 TD's last year. 3 of them if i recall correctly came because the defense forgot about him (the one in tampa and the philly one) cant remember if the one vs Tampa was on the defense as well. The dallas one I'll give to Lafell. But i agree he has his moments but id like to see more of them since he's our number 2

Olsen had 5 TDs and Smitty had 4.  We are not getting a lot of TDs from our primary receiving options.  I don't know if I would blame that on the receiving targets themselves.

Ted Ginn is aging? I need to have a child soon (or something) since I'm older.

He is entering his 7th season....and is the definition of a bust. Guys don't tend to break out at this stage.

Don't get me wrong i like Lafell, i just think he'd be alot better as the third option lined up in the slot. But thats just my opinion, doesn't mean much.

Olsen has had more than 5 once in his career....

Smitty IMO has always been more of a yardage/big play guy than TD scorer overall. So at the tail end of his career I don't think an under 6ft guy is suppose to be a major TD scorer.

A vertical deep threat IMO would be the TD guy in our scheme....we just don't have one

Why aren't there 214234 articles a day about the Patriots (who by the way have absolutely nothing at receiver)? Oh wait, it's because they have ONE (Hernandez is good, but not great) elite tight end. Well guess what? We have one of the best too. 4th in receiving yards and 1st in YPC other than Gronk who doesn't count because he didn't play half the year.

Is it the car or the driver? The more Cam improves, the better the receivers become. Additionally, we're not going to win by throwing the ball first. My sense is the we'll use 2 TEs/ 2 WRs sets more than 1TE/3 WRs. My biggest hope is that we can find a 2nd receiver to really stretch the defense. We can be dangerous if somebody, anybody emerges.

More QBs when by throwing than not throwing....IMO. The great teams ride a QB. We need to move past the model of how to win with mediocre QB play
