In Topic: Panthers trade up to 9th pick of second round - select Devin Funchess

02 May 2015 - 10:02 AM

This idea that Gettleman is drafting guys like Funchess, and Benjamin because "derp, Cam throws high literally all the time, draft all the tall guys!" is pretty retarded if I'm being honest. For all you Gettleman dick lickers, it's actually an insult to Dave's intelligence. I think in all the years he's been in the NFL, he has a better sense of offensive talent than that. Seems pretty damn clear to me that he wants the mismatch advantage that those guys present first and foremost, particularly in the red zone. Also, these type of WR's eat up chunks of yards at a time, and help sustain long drives that obviously keep the ball out of the hands of the opposing offense as long as possible.

 

I'm sorry, but your 'derp, b/c Cam throws high' comment seems, your words 'retarded'.  Why try throwing other peoples opinions under the bus?  Because you have all of the answers?  Seems sophomoric.

 

You think Gettleman its not aware & it is NOT a consideration that Cam throws high?!  I will guarantee you that it is.  Is it the primary analysis?  Likely not.  Gettleman is not so simple that it's all about size or all about Cam...he assessed this player & obviously really likes his skills. 

 

From watching college, I've always liked hat I saw out of Funchess...will be interesting to see him & Benjamin lined up on  5'10" CBs.

Goddamn. Shut the fug up about Oline.

Repeat after me.

You do not reach for need.

fug what you think our needs are. You don't know poo.

 

Yeah, I think we all need to know the Panthers have been in good hands with G-Man.  Reaching for 'need' is never a long-term winning proposition.  We wouldn't have Luke if we only drafted for 'our' 'perceived' needs.

 

I too worry about our OL (G-Man's aversion to taking them early), but am glad he isn't just reaching b/c everyone will feel like he 'gets it'...he does get it. 

 

Both the 1st Rd pick & moving up to take Funchess surprised me, but I think we will be a better team b/c of both.

I've moved on from it for the most part, so I don't hurt the gettleman fan club's feelings by disagreeing with his moves... But ultimately, that's the biggest issue I had with it.

I said when we took Shaq, that it's likely he would've been there much further down... We likely could've traded back at least 7 picks to possibly the early second round, got Shaq, and picked up another pick to use to trade up again where we could've taken Devin Smith or Funchess.

We don't know this, but honestly, neither does any gm out there... They only have an idea of what teams are looking at which players, but like Shaq said, he could've went anywhere from 20-50,and seeing how he started slipping in many projections (much like we saw with Clemmings now), that's where I have my issue,in that we could've given ourselves much more maneuverability if we traded back for shaq and picked up another pick.

But oh well, it's done and that's who we have. No room for dissenting opinions, so let's all fap.

 

Yeah, I agree completely...especially with the "no GM knows" comment.  Everyone has their 'sense', but ultimately it comes down to do you sit & wait OR is 'that' player the palyer who will make a huge difference.  IF he is, & the GM is right, it is all worth it.

 

I love forward to seeing to monsters on the field, especially in light of the fact that our franchise QB throws high on a regular basis...so to that point, I understand Funchess....just wish we waited instead of giving up picks.

That was a lot to give up.

I think I miss non-reaching gettleman, lol.

I would've thought strong would come off the board before funchess did.

We apparently just don't see football the same. We still have the slowest receiving corps in the NFL. I just don't get it.

 

With what G-Man was looking for, we could have traded out of our #1 & got Shaq Thompson (probably without moving up in the 2nd, but if we did move up...take where we took Funchess), then Funchess in the 3rd (maybe giving up another pick or so to be sure).  It seemed like a reach.  Anyone know if they thought DGB was still available at that time?  He went right before I think...that would have made sense to me.

A couple have gotten to it before me, but it has a lot to do with getting the cap in check.  We were in a perpetual state of overpaying & we are paying huge $ for RBs when most are getting a lot out of rookie RBs.  I think he has the right idea, but I want to see that he does make the right calls along the way.  He needs to shore up the OL, DBs, WRs & clear some of the $ from the RB position; we also need another starting OLB.  I also would like to see him light a fire under Rivera, get rid of coordinators, or even Rivera if needed; that Coach of the Year award blew my mind watching how he coached..even last year.  I have more faith in Getts than I do in Rivera or even JR.
