Gettle can't really be this oblivious, could he?


Best Answer CarolinaNCSU, 16 August 2013 - 11:57 AM

The staff has known who is currently out there. Once cuts come through, there will be new guys to look at. Kind of hard to make moves until cuts have been made. 

 

If we go into the season with this current group, then yeah, I'll be pissed then. For now? Patience it is.

Ahhh, the Cam Newton and Jamarcus Russell comparisons have begun.

I will gladly admit if I am wrong but I really have this feeling that we aren't going to find a starting quality linemen after cuts.

 

I think people are putting waaay too much hope in this.

and i dont know why either.  wharton or moore was my best hope, but who knows.  it's not as if teams are cutting starting quality olinemen for the helluva it.

 

i'm nervous, despite the two solid games, Gettis doesnt even make the team.

Pressure from the pocket isn't Cam's problem. It is Cam. He has no problem buying time, the problem is he goes full Jamarcus Russell sometimes and cannot hit the broad side of a barn. I love Cam, but damn man. I would say the running backs need a decent oline way more than Cam does.


Newton is nothing like JaMarcus Russell.

He's a lot like a young Brett Favre.

folks these days forget there was a time when people weren't sure if Favre was going to be a quality starter. He needed some improvement, and he got it. No reason why Newton can't do the same.

Add my name to the crowd who's not expecting a new starter to come via cuts. Some upgraded depth is quite possible but a starter is doubtful.

 

Play calling will make a huge difference in itself and we will be okay. We survived 2 years of Bell at RT and Gary Williams showed enough in camp to prove he's an upgrade over what we had at RG last year. The rest of the line has 0% chance of being affected by cuts.

I keep beating this dead horse but people also need to remember we aren't the only team looking for help either.  The Packers, Cowboys, Bears, and Broncos also need some offensive linemen.

Jamarcus Russel? Are you serious? jesus christ, there are so many qbs that you can compare him to. Jamarcus Russel should be the furthest from your mind. Is it because they are both black? sigh...smh

Even Warren Sapp, who's analysis is usually terrible. Said the o-line has to do a better job blocking for not only Cam, but the run game. If not, it's going to be another season with Cam trying to do everything and him carrying the team.
