In 2004 I was so high on Larry Fitzgerald. I wanted us to draft him so badly. Arizona picked him 2 spots before us & I was devastated. Devastated! We took Chris Gamble that year. Turned out to be a very good pick for us & he became one of my favorite Panthers to watch.
I learned my lesson. I will never again anticipate anything during the draft. It's a game I don't like playing any more. Our draft picks are now members of our Panther family & I'll support them just for that reason.
If you think the number two WR position has been addressed I will be sure to bring that up half way through next season when Cam is getting coverage sacked and people on here are like WTF is wrong with our offense.
First you'll have to convince them that it is a coverage sack & good luck with that. I'm feared that too many Huddlers are too wasted on game day to recognize a coverage sack even when the announcer says something like, "all of Cam's options were covered on that play. That was a coverage sack." lol OMG if we can get posters to just recognize what a coverage sack is, that would be a major improvement. I don't follow the game day threads any more; they're too painful.
Welp. Stayed up way beyond my bedtime to watch all those clips & I'm glad I did. Thank you to everyone that posted the links. That was a very good interview series. Cam seems so much more relaxed than he had been & that's good to see. And I never knew how funny he really is. I'm so happy he's our QB, feels the Panthers are ascending & wants to stay here.
To be honest, I don't think any Panther coaches are overrated. They, after all, coach the best team in the NFL, my team. I expect the best from the coaches & players & trainers. And I believe we do get their best or they don't coach/play/train. You may think Rivera doesn't evaluate talent well (& you may be right) but he sets the expectations & goals high for every individual & holds them accountable. Witness Josh Norman's journey on this team.
Besides, it's the offseason & I'm always optimistic in the offseason.
