LaFell calls out Jonathan Jones

46 posts in this topic

Our reporters job is to write stories about the Panthers. When Joe Person went after Lafell's personal life I had Brandon's back. But when someone goes after your performance on the football field you need to suck it up. This is the big leagues.

What did person say again I remember that vaguely but not details

I'd be fine bringing LaFell back despite his obvious shortcomings.

 

Why? We have no one else. Run blocking is always needed. He could be a decent #3 or 4 should we find replacements. But. it's all contingent on him re-signing for a million at most.

Honestly, I think Panther fans have come to regard WR blocking too highly because we aren't used to having anyone other than steve who can actually catch. Too much emphasis is placed on lafell being able to do his third or fourth responsibility as a receiver after catching, scoring touchdowns, and running routes. If he was actually a receiving threat, there would have been no discussion on whether to bring him back or not. 9 times out of 10 a run doesn't make it to the second level, and in those instances, yes it's nice to have a WR who can block. However It really isn't that important in the grand scheme of the position.

He was a good run blocking WR and at best a solid #3 or #4 receiver.  Nothing to break the bank for but if he'd come in on a cheap contract he'd be worth having around - pending they do some upgrading to the WR position otherwise.

Can't really argue with anything Jones said.

Geez no wonder Lafell didn't want to be a #1. He can't even handle the media criticism in the cut throat market of the greater Matthews/Charlotte region.
