Cam Newton is going to do something this season that no quarterback in the history of the franchise has ever done

I still say WR or TE is our biggest concern. Im not sold on LaFell and I think there are better options out there. There have been many times Cam has had to throw the ball away or force a pass because no one was open.  Other than that Oline Oline Oline.

Pretty impressive considering our WR core is pretty mediocre (Olsen isn't even a WR).

Beuerlein was in a WCO. Stats are always inflated in that offense.

I don't know how much I buy the 'good receivers' argument. 'Adequate receivers' is probably about as high a praise as I'm willing to offer.

yep. cammy cam is on pace to throw for about 600 yards less than his career average, but in all relevant categories he's having the best season of his career.

I like Donald Lafell.  He's is right up there with Steven Smith.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, people think #2 receivers these days should have 1,200 yards and 7 touchdowns. LaFell is fine. He's gotten better every single year and although he's had some tough drops, he's made some fantastic plays.

agreed. we won't ever be an elite offense with the receivers we have right now.

Hope Smitty can have a couple of big games to push him over the 1000 yard mark.

Ginn needs to catch the ball is he's going to be considered a deep threat. Right now hes basicly a decoy

I really hope Gettle doesn't believe he's fixed the WR position because of the improvement of Ginn, but I have a feeling he just might do that and believe Corner and line depth is our only needs.

Lafell is more of a 3 honestly. He is ok. We could do better.
