John Clayton Weighs in on our talent at Receiver

14 April 2014 - 02:50 PM


Q: With over 45 years of following the NFL, including the last 19 as a devoted Carolina fan, I'm asking you, have you ever witnessed a WR evacuation like the one Panther GM has initiated, beginning with a very productive "team leader" like #89? Especially without an equal value replacement in line! Also, isn't it apparent that the increased success of Ted Ginn Jr. and Brandon LaFell was a direct result of the double teams Steve Smith drew in most situations?

Catfish in Salt Lake City

A: I can't remember one so dramatic. Last year, the Patriots entered the season without their five top pass-catchers from the previous year, but that wasn't all on Bill Belichick. Aaron Hernandez was in jail. Rob Gronkowski was hurt.Wes Welker left in free agency. The Panthers elected to lose their top four wide receivers. Steve Smith is going on 35, but he's still good enough for around 70 catches. Most of the new additions at wide receiver are viewed more as slot guys than outside threats. Unless the Panthers hit it big in the draft for receivers, this could be a tough season for Cam Newton and the passing game.





According to PFT Panthers have interest in Sidney Rice

He got cleared by Dr. James Andrews. PFT's Mike Florio reports the Seahawks, Giants, Saints, and Panthers all have "interest of some degree" in Rice, who has been incredibly injury prone in recent seasons but is still only 27 years old. He played college football at South Carolina and would be an excellent fit with the Panthers. Rice has always possessed a large catch radius, which would complement Cam Newton's somewhat erratic ball placement. Apr 14 - 2:39 PM





D-Will in shock over loss of receiving corp

10 April 2014 - 09:16 AM

Posted by Michael David Smith on April 10, 2014, 10:04 AM EDT


Panthers running back DeAngelo Williamswas shocked to learn that none of the wide receivers who caught passes for Carolina last year would be back this year.

Asked on NFL AM about the departure of veteran receiver Steve Smith, Williams said he hated to see Smith go, but it went beyond just that. Williams said that he doesn’t know what the front office is thinking at the receiver position.

“We lost them all,” Williams said of the Panthers’ receivers. “That was tough, man. I played with Steve for eight years, and I know the chip he has on his shoulder, and he’s a playmaker. I couldn’t believe that we made those moves. Like, I’m still in shock. Not only did we lose him, but Ted Ginn Jr., Brandon LaFell, and [Domenik] Hixon.”

Asked if he feels that losing receivers puts more pressure on the running backs, Williams answered, “No, it puts more pressure on our front office because you make these moves, getting rid of four receivers, you’ve got to bring in guys.”

So far, the guys the Panthers have brought in are Jerricho CotcheryJason Avant and Tiquan Underwood. Williams was careful not to criticize his new teammates, but he clearly isn’t convinced that the Panthers can be as good in the passing game this year as they were last year. In that skepticism of the Panthers’ receiving corps, Williams is far from alone.


We can't be as good as the 28th offense in the league D-Will?  I mean, really?

Trading down. Smart or dumb?

27 March 2014 - 08:32 AM

I was thinking about it, and the holes we have at LT lack of quality starters in on the line.  Missing another receiver.  Would trading down and grabbing another 3rd or another late second be smart or dumb in our situation?  


In before "I wish the offseason would end."  Or "Man, this thread sucks."  Or "thread sucks."
