Boy, is it a good thing that fans have no say in running the team.
We've got people on here ready to throw high draft picks at pretty much any team trying to get rid of any unwanted player, no matter why they're on the outs.
If some folks got their way, come April we'd have no picks left. Meanwhile, professionals within not just the Panther organization, but those of several other teams are saying "eeeeehhh, no". Yet fans on here scream that the unwillingness to spend high picks to acquire damaged goods shows the team either has no clue or doesn't care about winning.
Mind you, there is one NFL owner who's shown a willingness to trade away picks that almost rivals that of the fans. Who, you ask? That'd be Daniel Snyder.
Sadly, that approach hasn't brought a Lombardi back to DC.
But I'm sure it will eventually, right?
And what exactly would you do nothing? Sit and hope we draft another amini or armanti with our picks in the second or our third round pick? The fact is this team has done a poor job selecting talent past the first round anyway. Would it really be any worse to select a troubled but proven player? Just because mistakes have been made doesn't mean he will keep repeating those mistakes. Being afraid of your own shadow is not how you build a winning franchise.Sometimes it works out like for the patriots and moss sometimes it doesn't. Buying a Lomardi would be signing a bunch of free agents but trading for one player isn't going to make or break the franchise. Adding another possible piece to help our qb this season wouldn't be the worst thing gettleman could do. No one is saying trade a first rounder for him,but anything beyond that is fine with me. You seem to come in at the same angle on anytype of player and sit on the fence a wait and see type. Tell me how that's been working out and how it's been helping the panthers? Because that's the route they generally take. How is doing nothing better than getting a proven player?
