    There's also the possibility that Bradberry will want to bet on himself and his performance this year. If he could luck into 3 or 4 INTs via lame ducks or tipped balls along with his typical coverage work, he'd break the bank. It'd be risky for him as a down year or an injury could tank his value (see Daryl Williams), but it's a risk that could potentially pay off big.

    Those tipped balls are going to need to be gift wrapped and delivered to him in order for him to complete the INT. Dude has bricks for hands.

    Hypothetically, it's possible the teams that also had him as a 1st round graded QB also drafted a QB in the first. So I can't use the fact that he wasn't taken in the 2nd or 3rd disqualify Hurney's statement.

    I don't really care where he was graded, or where other teams had him on the board. I think it was a smart pick where we got him. Grier is a QB who could be a starter, but we have the luxury of not depending on him to be a starter right now. He's got mechanical issues, but he's years away from being the QB for the Panthers, and a good QB coach can correct his throwing mechanics.

    But that’s exactly the problem.

    We don’t have the luxury of avoiding other positions of need to draft a 24 year old backup quarterback with our 3rd pick in the draft.

    That isn’t going to help us make the playoffs this season.

    it's the most important position on the field because a great quarterback can hide a lot of flaws on your roster (cam has hidden tons of them) and because of how irreplaceable elite quarterbacks are. will grier is not prepared to step in and keep this team competitive and as history indicates he likely will never be prepared to do so. if anyone in the league thought that he could, he would have been picked in the top half of the first round. it is not up for debate. the league doesn't think grier is ready to contribute and he is blocked by an elite quarterback who, according to primary sources, is expected to recover from offseason surgery.

    this team is fuged if it has to rely on a "solid backup" so why waste a valuable asset on one? and you would be willing to draft a backup higher than the 3rd? lol the grier-hive is real. 

    yeah should definitely trust their judgment there. can't think of any other times they have significantly overvalued a quarterback in the draft.

    this quarterback-starved league saw daniel jones become the 6th overall pick but let grier fall to 100 and the team that took him hopes that he doesn't play a single snap. talk about a vote of confidence!

    when cam newton was picked you defended the guy who called him "disingenuous," said he had a "fake smile," and said he "lacks accountability and trustworthiness" and "sets a bad example"

    now today you've lied about me. you accused me of "hoping to see him throw a bunch of interceptions" but couldn't link the post because it doesn't exist. you're the same person you were when you went to bat for nolan nawrocki.

    I think the pick is made look much worse than it would be had we not traded up for Little because then we perhaps fill another need with that pick. To me, that was probably the majority of my butthurt over the Grier pick. If we fill other needs with the 2nd and the first 3rd, I probably don't have nearly as much issue with the Grier pick.

    I agree with this 100%

    Well then, here's a simple statement:

    "I don't care whether it's Cam Newton or Will Grier or Kyle Allen or somebody else running the offense as long as they play well and we win."

    I have no problem saying that I agree with that. Heck, I don't see why anybody would have a problem with that statement.

    Do you agree with it?

    I agree I want the Panthers to win regardless of who is the quarterback, linebacker, coach, etc. Only someone with serious issues would be against that.

    Heres another statement- let’s see if you agree-

    “The 2019-2020 Carolina Panthers had more pressing needs than drafting a backup QB with one of their first 3 picks.”

    So you're ducking it again.

    Riiiight.

    Here's how it works: The best guy should start. If there's a runningback on the team who's better than Christian McCaffrey, he should start. If there's a defensive tackle on the team better than Kawann Short, he should start. If there's a linebacker on the team better than Luke Kuechly, he should start. And yes, if it turns out there's a quarterback on the team better than Cam Newton - for health reasons, ability reasons or whatever reason - then that guy should start.

    Doesn't matter how likely or unlikely those things are. Doesn't matter if it's unfair or unjust. Doesn't matter if it screws somebody over. Those things happen. It's a shame when they do, but you can't make a bad roster decision just because somebody gets hurt by the good one.

    That's football.
