Yeah dude. You of all people cannot make a thread like this. Either you think cam is going to be fine and the offense will still produce or you think gettleman isn't sold on cam and he's gonna be gone soon. Pick one

Did you actually see that offense tonight? I'm guessing not.

Two things after I've watched the first half

 

- If we make it to next Thursday without adding a legitimate player on the OL, there's a dent perception wise in Gettleman's armor. I just watched our star QB get hurt because our "starting" RG missed an assignment because he's also the backup at LG and very clearly has no idea how the position works. Unacceptable.

 

That huge Lafell drop is also unacceptable.

 

- I've decided on willing to part with something important to legitimately address the OL. I feel strong enough about the rest of the roster that I believe we can make a run and it's worth making a move to insure that that crucial spot on the team does not hold us back.

The only thing I was disappointed with tonight (outside our o-line, of course) is that Affleck is our new Batman.

 

Goodness gracious...

So much so that he was willing to rationalize the trade of Kony Ealy to the Patriots, which essentially netted him a second-round pick eight slots higher than the third-round pick they included in the swap. "It's a heavy draft and it was an opportunity for us to move up. To you guys, eight spots doesn't seem like much. But to me, it's gold," Gettleman said, via the Charlotte Observer.   Scout's Notebook: Cam must evolve as QB   Free Agency's biggest unanswered storylines   Harrison: All-Under-25 Team   Brandt: Best second-round picks since '12   MJD: Ranking the '17 RB prospects   Players who won free agency   Brooks: Peterson 'just another' RB now   Schein: Each division's favorite, top contender   Rosenthal Why is everyone ignoring Big Ben?   Scouting Report/team fits: Malik Hooker He added: "You've got to give up something to get something. You're not fooling anybody anymore. There's too much film available. We just wanted to move up and get another second-round pick. I think it gives us more flexibility." This was, on the front end, a nice way for Gettleman to distance himself from Ealy without criticizing the dynamic former second-round pick, though it does put the fearless general manager in a precarious position. Rationalizing a trade to move up eight slots suggests there is someone in particular who you are targeting and expect to be there. At the least, it suggests that one of a few people you hope are there can contribute right away significantly. Ealy was not a perfect player, but his ability to get to the quarterback was undeniable. If the Panthers had won Super Bowl 50, there's a chance Ealy would have been named MVP despite playing just a handful of snaps. Carolina already got rid of one exceptional homegrown defensive talent in Josh Norman last year and could see Ealy come back to bite them inside the Patriots' versatile front. Of course, Gettleman isn't afraid of what anyone thinks and has done a nice job getting the Panthers under control since taking over the gig in 2013. He has plenty of equity built up with the Panthers' fan base, but a home run with that second-round pick couldn't hurt. "
