What the fug are either of you talking about?


Try reading the posts.

I havent said a word about lafell being a bad reciever, simply stated the size of the hands dont matter.

Jesus.




Well...ok then. I was responding the OP. Not you. I was calling out the OP for his inane thread.

CRA started out the same way, then responded to your post about his hands. Oopsy on that one.

The vast majority of Panther fans know Lafell is an integral piece of this team. No, he is not a #1WR, but he does plenty to be a factor for us.

Too many kids, and their ilk, want to get rid of a player that does far more than just drop a few passes.

The fact you quoted CRA responding to me I assumed you were referring to me and the op.

I do not hold the same opinion as the op. Either way, no biggie, go panthers.

I agree with you completely about the tragic under appreciation of LaFell

I've been watching Lafell for about 4 years now and almost in every game he has a key drop. Then I started asking myself, what is keeping a big 6'2 tall WR with all the measurable, who is been in the same system for 4 years, from achieving consistency. Then, I got this number: 8 3/4. What is this number? That's Lafell's hand size. For a guy his size, his hand size should be around 9 1/2 on the small side for an athlete. What is Dez Bryant's hand size, for example? 9 3/4. Notice the difference in performance? So, what you have here is a big dude with tiny little hands trying to catch a big ass football. In short, the odds are against him from ever becoming a respectable WR. Serviceable? Yes.


Terrell Owens consistently led the NFL in drops for years.

Small hands were the knock on him coming out of the draft.  They didn't call him "LaDrops" at LSU for nothing.  He's a hell of a run blocker though and that's why the Panthers drafted him.

 

But we NEED (as WR2) someone that CAN CATCH the ball and block...not just block....

Smith's a fantastic WR but he had drops from his first real action in 02 on to today.  Things happen.  Receivers aren't perfect and Brandon LaFell isn't what's bringing this offense down.  He's our third best option and he isn't going to need to be perfect. 

 

Smith will fight for a ball and will put his body on the line...he made Delhomme LOOK good for a couple of years (near the end..LaFail?....lol...no comment
