Louis Murphy

Aug 02 2012 08:06 AM Zod Carolina Panthers
There is a lot of talk out there right now about Louis Murphy, who appears to be pushing for the 3rd WR spot if not the 2nd. Thought I would take the time to bring the more casual fans up to speed on this prospect.

Murphy was acquired via trade with the Oakland Raiders on July 23rd, for a conditional draft choice assumed to be a seventh rounder. This is his 4th NFL season.

Murphy played one season at Florida with Cam Newton, so there may be some chemistry still there. Florida's wide open sling it around offense has prepared Murphy for Chud's aggressive O.

He seems to have the right mentality to make an impact, from a recent Observer article

After mini-camp with the Raiders earlier this year, Murphy said he intends to play this season with a chip on his shoulder, believing he has something to prove after last year. He said he’s heard people questioning him and wants to answer his critics.
"I’m always going to play with a chip on my shoulder," Murphy said. "That’s just mentality and I kind of got away from that last year and doubted myself. This year I know what I’ve got to do."

Rivera knows what he has in Murphy.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera faced Murphy for two seasons as San Diego's defensive coordinator and knows he can be tough to defend. But Rivera said Murphy will be in a battle with receivers like Gettis, Kealoha Pilares, Seyi Ajirotutu and rookie Joe Adams, a fourth-round pick who'll double as the team's starting punt returner.
"We like him," Rivera said of Murphy. "He's a very capable football player, and he'll add competition to that position. We're excited about that."


After seeing him in Camp, I can tell you there is a real possibility for Murphy to push Brandon LaFell as the second receiver. It has developed into one of the more interesting camp battles. Two large SEC receivers upping the game and making the Panthers a better team in the process.

Keep an eye on 83 at Fan Fest on Saturday.

No, my legs are just normal. Tone enough to turn women on...been told as much.

This guy's legs bend this way (^) and this way (<) at the knee. That is the DUMBEST thing I have ever seen. I guarantee you it's going to break one day.



I don't think his knees are turning. Knees don't turn, they bend. Looks like he's just pivoting to run a route.
It's like they say in regards to Gettis. You can't make the club in the tub. He better get back on that field before he gets cut.

I don't think you acquire a player by trade with the plan on cutting him in the preason. If you don't think Murphy is gonna be on this team you're crazy....Just out of curiosity? Who are you high on other than Smitty on our wide receiver core?


If the trade had been for more than a conditional 7th rounder I'd agree. Since it was conditional we may even get to keep the pick if he doesn't make the roster. As far as who I'm high on, LaFell, who Rivera said had a pretty good hold on the #2 spot, Gettis assuming he makes it back, plus I think both Pilares and Adams will make the team since they can return kicks. That leaves Murphy to compete with Ajirotutu for the last spot, assuming we keep 6 and we dont take a flyer on Darvin Adams or Darrell Green's kid. Just not sure that Drew Carter, er, Louis Murphy is gonna beat all those guys out, much less take the #2 spot.

His knees **BEND** in two different directions. Look at the guy's YouTube clips.

I take it you've never been into hacky sack?


What?

You're going to tell me that you didnt grow up dreaming of playing in the NFL, but instead you grew up dreaming of becoming a member on this Huddle Forum? okay buddy

The reason why the guy is in the league is bc he has the ability to make cuts that sharp and your fat2@ss would pulled a hammy and break an ankle on trying to pull something like that.


You aren't very bright, are you? Also, nice of you to assume that I'm overweight...which of course, I'm not and never have been. Most of what I dreamed about was being able to fly, so I guess birds succeeded and I failed.

The difference between the #2 & #3 WR in this offense isn't going to be that big of a deal. Both will get plenty of playing time. With that said, I'd like to see LaFell lock down the #2 because of his blocking ability and the fact that he can be more of a possession receiver to go along with Smitty. If you bring in Murphy as the #3 he'll still get a lot of snaps and he adds additional downfield pressure. Smitty and Murphy going deep with LaFell going over the middle and Stewart or Tolbert coming out of the backfield. Good luck stopping that silliness!
This has taken one of the more impressive turns in carolinahuddle history.

Still...your knees only bend in 1 direction like a hinge...hence hinge joint(knee and elbow) not tryin to nit pick but maybe he's just knock knee'd lol
the oracle has always amazed me.

its amazing how far away from the truth a guys user name could be. even worse than the real deal.
Does anyone have any idea what he is rambling on about his knees. I probably watched 20 clips of him and have no clue what he is referring to.
No, TheOracle always talks nonsense about players legs. Last year he bitched in the game-chat incessantly about Olsen and how his legs are funny and he doesn't run right. I think he has some kind of weird leg fetish and any player who's legs don't give him a chubby he inevitably doesn't like.
