Below is a very good article regarding tackles.( A must read) from PFF with stats to support.I have also pasted the summary or the article for those of you who hate to read
There’s a lot to digest here, but it can be summed up rather quickly. The right tackle should no longer be viewed as the athletic inferior to the left tackle and teams should change their team-building strategy to make this happen. Today’s passing NFL makes it a necessity to have two competent pass protectors on the edge and when scouting players, if a tackle is deemed to not be good enough to play left tackle, well you’re better off just putting him at guard rather than exploiting him at right tackle. There’s no hiding — defensive coordinators will find him.
It has finally dawned on me that some of you are so affected by the cutting of Steve Smith that it doesn't matter what Gettleman does, you hate him and will always distort reality to fit your narrative that everything in your world that is wrong is Dave Gettleman's fault.
I will admit that it is different having a GM making the tough personal decisions but I think he is doing the right thing to build a winning franchise.
My problem is I become a fan of players as well and right, wrong or indifferent, those will collide over time.I was a big Smitty fan so yes it bothered me that he did not retire a panther.
Why is everyone on DWill? Who the hell was not shocked when we lost our WR corp? Being shocked and being condescending are different. He was not saying it as he had an agenda to undermine the FO. Much about nothing in my opinion.
Basically saying the team rallied around saving Rivera's job. Was ask what he thought letting our WR corp and he was/is shocked and was clearly not happy. Ask the NFL AM staff if they new of any receivers?
I get the feeling that some of our team has not bought in to the off season moves regarding our WRs.
The WR position is not a 1 size fits all. Some teams have a great slot, others need a red zone option, and many are wanting the tall fast guy that can create mismatches with smaller CBs . The Panthers are unique in that we only have a couple of guys on one year cheap contracts and we need all types of receivers.
For the reasons I stated above I see Landry slipping some because many teams have that 2nd receiver that does not have great speed or jumping ability. I see him as a new and improved version of Avant.
To me the Panthers needs that tall fast all purpose receiver which many of these tier 2 receivers are.If we take a OT in the 1st I still see one of these guys in the second. Clearly we are not getting one of the tier one guys in the 1st.
