Harper is a Solid Signing

"Solid"? No.

 

Serviceable? Yes.

 

I trust the reviews of Saints fans who have seen him for years over anyone on this board. They say he is great in the box but terrible in coverage. I'd rather have a safety that can do both of these things.

It's a great signing. He is better than Mitchell. Great tackler and great at getting to the QB. He is a Panther now and fans need to start backing him not bashing him because he used to be a saint.

I'm interested to see some of the locker room reaction.

Considering he played for a team that admittedly had a bounty on our franchise quarterback.

Think this is a good signing for our D and for the $$. It's crazy to say this since I have always loved 89 but...........I hope Roman Harper lays the wood on Steve Smith when we play the Ravens. 

 

Strangest damn thing to write but Panthers fan for life!

When the Ravens come to town Steve Smith will be my enemy and I hope we shut him down. I am a Panthers fan.

I loved Pep but I moved on, I loved Jake but I moved on, I loved Beason but I moved on. I love Cam and Luke, someday I will have to move on.

I am a Panthers fan

Congratulations.

There are only a few people trolling on here who would root for Steve Smith, or any former Panther over our team.

What people don't realize is that Mitchell came from an awful Oakland defense...

Harper is coming from a Saint defense that was ranked in the top 5 and he was considered the weak link.

Comparing what Mitchell was to what Harper is, is twisting facts to what you want them to be to make you feel better about the signing.

Simple as that.

There are some members on the huddle that will always love the signing no matter who it is or what they really know about him. Somebody find a thread after we signed Nakumara and you'll see what I mean

Feel free to look at Mitchell's PFF ranking in 2013.

Feel free to find a thread where I give a poo that Mitchell left.

But since you mentioned it Mitchell was the 35th overall safety and Harper was 59th last year.

I'm pulling for the guy and hope I'm wrong but for right now I don't agree that if was a good move.

I like the signing. Hes a good box safety and we have Lester we can throw in on passing situations. I trust our coaches can make it work.
