Can't lose Players

We are on the same page. No doubt.  I am terrified at the thought of losing Smitty, especially at this point without knowing what Gettis, Ginn or Hixon are going to bring to the table.  That said. I just try and hope for the best. 

 

And I did say even if they had to do it by committee.  Meaning 2, 3 or 4 players filling that role on a play by play nature.

 

Just to Clarify..  Injury or no Injury.  Replacing Smith will be an act of God.   I am one of the few that think a couple more good seasons and he will be a shoe in for HOF.

 

You call it Homer...  I call it positive attitude......  We realistically did it when he went down with a broken leg a couple years back. 

 

Ginn is pretty much a bust at the receiver position (I am excited about him on special teams), Hixon can not stay hurt and there is a good chance that Gettis will not make the team.  I would rather rely on Lafell and Olsen any day of the week than those three.

I think CJ is the most expendable of the 3.

 

Provoking again?

What team wouldn't be hurting if they lose their number 1 receiver? That doesn't mean we are totally screwed. It means other guys will have to step up bigger. Olsen would be more of a factor and guys like Hixon will get a chance to play a bigger role.I am glad Smith has been so durable which hopefully continues. If I had to choose though we could lose Smith easier than Newton or Kuechly. Smith makes 70 catches a year but Newton has the ball on every play and Kuechly had twice as many tackles as Smith had catches. He might be the second or third most important guy on offense.

Came across this recently regarding the best WR tandems in the NFL (from 6+ years ago)

 

 

Who Just Missed the List:
 
NFC: Panthers, Steve Smith, Dwyane Jarrett, Drew Carter. I am not yet sure that Jarrett and Carter are ready for major roles, but if they are, the Panthers WR Corps could shoot up to as high as 3 in the NFC. I also question the other two's ability to put up numbers with Jake Delhomme at Quarterback, who was horrific at times last year.

Steve Smith has spent a lot of his years here without a complete supporting cast. I'm glad he still wants to retire here but part of him must be thinking...COME ON MAN!!

Virtual real men like you find their courage on internet.

Internet is changing your life, you can bark as much as you want noone can punish you.

If our players were anything like some of these neurotic fans, they'd never even take the field.

I mean seriously....I can TOTALLY see this being the year that Ginn and Gettis BOTH get over 1000 yards.

Get your head out of your asses. Smith will play at a dominant level for 10+ years.

Shut up. No questions asked.

Well I think there are a few things we can infer about this past draft and free agency period, or for last 2 years for that matter. Obviously Star and Short were considered bigger impact players then who was left available at WR. Secondly, the fact that we are still relying on Smith so dependently may just mean that he is still more dominant than people tend to believe.

 

I think this will be the last year we lean on Smith, there's still juice in the tank for him to be a #1 for this year, and Hixon and Ginn should be enough to make a formidable group with LaFell. I am confident that the offense can go. Next year however I expect a 1st or 2nd round selection at WR and then we start moving Smitty around a bit more. Which I still expect Smith to be a great player next year as well so he should have some pretty good numbers if we can get a premier talent by his side.

Outside Smitty, our wide receiver core is a joke. It always has been. I don't know what excuse Hurney had for not drafting a top level receiver. Granted, wideouts bust at a high rate in the first round but the front office has done an absolute horrid job in assembling a solid supporting cast for Smith and Newton/Delhomme. I never had faith in Carter, Jarrett, Colbert and Edwards, and LaFell has been a disappointment.

We need a double-dip WR draft this upcoming off-season.
