Brandon Lafell - Ooh Wee Mayne

Great play. I love how Williams hits another gear just as he gets to Lafell's block.

He also had that great catch in traffic in the 1st quarter against the Jets.

The best parallel I can think of:

We should keep him and use him like the Eagles have done with Jason Avant.

He's a solid WR4-5 to have depending on who else we get this upcoming offseason.

 

 

 

did someone say Jason Avant???

I was at the game and LaFell locked up on his man immediately after Williams caught the ball and rode him the entire way.  It was a very impressive block and Deangelo would not have scored without it.

Just for some perspective - not using this to make an argument either way:

 

LaFell was the 52nd ranked wide receiver in yards/game and 60th in total receptions in 2012.

He's the 41st ranked wide receiver in yards/game and receptions this year.

The average #2 receiver would rank 48th.

LaFell should get at least 25% credit for that TD. That was an awesome block.

 

Lafell 25% for great blocking

D-Will 40% for great speed and field visions

Tolbert 5% for great fake

Cam Newton 10% for selling first fake and making good pass

Travelle Wharton 20% for having a great block.

Like others have said, the biggest issue for Lafell is consistency at this point - but I think he's continuing to develop and become less inconsistent. None of that means we should hold the # 2 WR spot open for him if someone better comes along, but he does have the ability to be an excellent # 2 receiver in our offense.

    • This is a huge cop out and it says that the only way to save our beloved means of governing is to bail out of the system and then have a revolution and start over again. You fix the system by casting knowledgeable votes in every frikkin' election. Every election. Local, state and federal. The situation is screwed right now because frikkin' lazy voters don't take the time to learn anything about their local candidates, or their state ones (here in NC that really bit us in the ass, didn't it?). Those elections lead to the ones above them AND frikkin help decide who will be taking part in primaries and even putting in the votes for the electoral college. An educated and willing electorate also tears the crap out of big money donors and tends to churn the political offices for the good of all. But no, a bunch of folks just drag themselves out of their cocoons to cast a vote for the president and maybe check off a box or two of people whose names sound familiar every four years. And then we've got the whiniest and most self righteous of the bunch, like you, who say that votes don't matter and they aren't going to get involved in the whole corrupt system. They march around smug and whining, putting on airs of intellectual superiority while complaining about every frikkin thing under the sun. Get up, learn your candidates and start voting local and up. All politics is local. ALL POLITICS IS LOCAL. Your town council or Board of Education or County Commission matters. Your State senators and representatives matter. BIG FRIKKIN TIME HERE. Doing this is how you really start reforming the system. This is how you start beating back the machinery in place that goes and grabs people by the busload and brings them to the polls to elect idiots and thieves. And then, maybe, just maybe, you run for office or volunteer some time to work for a candidate you believe in. You attend meetings and voice your opinions and hold politicians accountable, those in your own backyard first. And buy a frikkin' newspaper once in a while or buy an ad in one. No matter what crap the politicos try to tell you, those guys and gals scribbling notes at government meetings and then getting ink stains from printing the stories are your first line of defense and your best teachers. But stop acting all superior about not voting. Really, be a responsible adult. You have to work for it. Our republic doesn't have a reset button like your Xbox.
    • Steve Smith. Receiver, actually. No worries though.
    • With CJ's back issues I'm not even sure how good I feel this year.  If he's a full go and we do go DE at 8 on paper it's top front 7 of all time worthy.
