So Armanti has earned a roster spot..

It's also worth noting that Ras I-Dowling, the guy the Patriots took with the 33rd pick, has LITERALLY produced less than Armanti. Not saying we would've pick the same guy, but if the Patriots screwed the pick up, our dumbass front office probably wouldn't have stood a chance.

We definitely need some WR's to step up...

Hey man, I wish Armanti the best and hope like hell he's the next coming of Steve Smith.  Just saying the secondary might make receivers look better than they are...

 

 

no way it could have anything to do with coaching.........

I agree you need good coaching but we've had some great coaches before and don't knock what's really helped AE improve and that's AE working his butt off.

 

Not discounting AE s hard worek, but Armanti in an interview on the David Glenn show,  directly referenced Proehl for giving all the wr s a chance and not just 2 or 3 guys.  Sounds like that wasnt done in the past.

I'm glad Armanti is finally putting it together. However, no one here can blame anyone for being skeptical. We've heard this same company line, over and over. "AE is looking great out there", "AE made some nice catches", "AE is progressing". It's time to finally see the guy do something in an actual football game.

If Armanti can be an effective player we may just have a solid WR core. Not great, but solid, good if you consider Olsen.

I think having a #1 punt returner out there has helped too.  Having a college QB convert to WR is tough enough, but throwing return duties out there too has got to make it even harder.

 

Hope to see him succeed. Good things come to good people, and Armanti is a good guy. Love the work ethic.

Worth ethic doesn't always mean the progression will be good enough. Yea Armanti went to not being able to catch a punt to catching it. I suppose you could say that is improvement over the past three years. But, I just don't see him contributing anything to this team not now or the future. He did not look like a NFL calibur athlete and still doesn't in my opinion. He can't take hits, is undersized, he has zero stamina, hands are not the best, speed is good but again no stamina. The 'yea but he was a QB' excuse is no longer valid. He was also camp hero last year, didn't translate. He is really one that needs to show it for me to care at all.

 

But yes, he went to App, he will have a roster spot and people will defend him just like they did Jarrett.

 

I don't think a negative perception is always based dissapointing life experiences...sometimes it comes down to plain observational life experience. You see it, you know it unless it changes. I don't believe it will. You always hope for the best, but tha's a given, no one should have to state that here we are all Panther fans.

thank you Ricky Proehl

 

 

I think he is going to be one of the biggest reasons for AE's improvement and playing time if he makes the team. I imagine that the WR coach has some say on what receivers are in for certain plays and in if Proehl believes in AE and believes that he can perfrom, AE will get the playing tim

I guess when some people's lives are such a disappointment, they don't know any better. They prob learned at a young age to be pessimistic...that way they were not over disappointed when nothing good happened.

 

Nah some people are just naturally whiny bitches. Having a crappy, hard, or disappointing life doesn't make you a pessimist. For some people they use such life experience to become eternal optimists, because, well everything else sucks so might as well hope for the best. 

 

There's no accounting for some people being crotchety asshats.

The coaches have always seen something in him obviously. Even back to the jon bon foxi years. But greg hardy is a great example of how bad young talent was misused under hurneys mngmt. Barnridge is another. I'm not 100% on the ae bandwagon, but I'm not gonna say that he doesn't have what it takes to compete for a wr spot. Ecspecially in an actual competitive camp.
