    I very seriously doubt Walker is the answer but I'd like to see him get a legit chance to show what he can or can't do when preparing as the starter. I think he may stand a chance to become a legit NFL backup. That's not what we're looking for as a fanbase, but for him as an individual that's not a bad gig at all.

    I wouldnt, I think Teddy is our best chance to lose out

    That is correct, I live in Draper where he grew up, 20 minutes north for LE stadium. This is a HUGE college city (SLC), with Utah (best NFL prospects), Utah State and BYU all about an hour so so from one another.

    Now, I am not saying a QB from a college program with sub par competition has never been successful and I do not deny he has upside at all, nor am I totally against drafting him.

    However the generally consensus around here is that he is not NFL franchise QB calibur, and a team will reach for him, thus unless we spend a top pick on him it won’t happen and I’d rather NOT do that.

    If that does happen though, I’d feel more comfortable if he sat behind TB next year. He’s just played garbage competition in my eyes.

     

    Curious as to why it would matter to those around there when you can just watch his games on youtube.  Its not like living close to someone can give you some special insight to him unless you are implying he is a bit much off the field.

    I'm not so sure if CC is a "quality" opponent per say. But, it's better than any team he's faced so far. The BSU game was so disappointing. They lose their top two QB's, and their third stringer couldn't do anything. 

    I wasnt really commenting on the quality of CC just the comment about playing someone in 3 days that you havent studied or game planned at all.  If he lights it up under those circumstances he will rocket even more up the boards.  If he falters I think things cool off until the combine or their bowl game at least.

    this is the craziest thing I've ever seen.  Come all the way across the country in 3 days with no prep time and play a ranked team on the road.

    Hats off to BYU.  ESPN College Gameday will be there, so they get a chance to make a push (they won't win) for a playoff spot.

    This will be telling one way or another.

  5. Person writes in the Atlantic what he has been saying pretty much all season.  The panthers cannot afford Moton.  Holy hell how did this happen?  We are going to replace all 5 positions on the line?  If this doesnt get Hurney fired then I give up

     

    Right tackle Taylor Moton

    Chance he returns: 30 percent.

    Key stat: Moton has not allowed a quarterback pressure in three games and has given up just 12 all year — tied for second fewest among qualified tackles, according to Pro Football Focus.

    Comment: Moton, the second-round pick from 2017, has become one of the league’s top right tackles and is eyeing a payday in the $15 million-a-year range. That seems unlikely to come from the Panthers. A source said there have been no talks about an extension between the two sides. The Panthers could use the franchise tag on Moton. But that one-year number (the tag was $14.8 million for offensive linemen last year) would represent a big chunk of a salary cap that could be as much as $22 million lower than this year’s because of decreased revenues during the pandemic.

    I've mentioned before that I'm not the world's biggest Trevor Lawrence fan.

    Generally when I say that, people back away from me like I've got an infections disease :Eyes_Emoji_42x42:

    Its just a dumb hot take.  The kid has zero negatives.  He has lost one game in 3 years.  He has a football prodigy brain inside a custom made football body.    He literally has no weaknesses

    So I don't know if anyone remembers this, but back in the day, a decade ago, there was a guy that was doing prospect breakdowns and he did one for Cam and said something along the lines of "His throwing motion is a very violent herky jerky motion that puts a ton of stress on his shoulder. He might have issues with that as his career goes forward." His mechanics were built around his shoulder instead of his legs and when his shoulder went to crap, his throwing ability fell apart. Might have been exaggerated due to the way he threw and why he had to tweak his throwing motion a few years back. I'll post the link if I can find it, but it this should not be something that the team should take lightly. 

    I dont think Cams motion hurt his shoulder it was just a combination of a ton of things.  Getting hit in particular scrambling, a terrible oline, Watt,  and waiting waiting waiting on treating the shoulder for fear of surgery.   The panthers failed Cam but he didnt do himself any favors trying to play through it.

    I see Wilson a lot as my SO is a BYU alum   He seems capable a d smart but who can tell with this level of opponent

    I am not going to lie, a few of those throws look identical to Trevor in regards to placing the ball right where the WR can get it and just perfect where the defender can do nothing.   I dont know how well he reads defenses or how he audibles but he throws some really nice balls.

     

    I am not concerned with his shoulder but moreso his frame.  He has to get thicker

    Please don't be so literal, it's painful.

    Lawrence is obviously a great prospect - but he's also playing in a gimmick offence with an incredible supporting staff. He's not asked to carry the team or make difficult throws. Yes, he has the arm to make them, but it's not the staple of the offence. 

    He projects to the #1 pick because he's got the size, athleticism, arm and pedigree (1 loss in College?) - but when you strip back the layers he's not quite as can't miss as people make out. 

    Are you high?  Serious question. 

     

    What the eff are you striping back exactly?  He calls plays at the line, reads defenses, can make every throw, has insane pocket awareness and is extremely mobile.

     

    Hot takes like yours are just garbage.  Trying to sound smarter than you really are

    His stats have to be gaudy. That D can't stop anything. They know they have to win with basketball scores.

    Don't lie to yourself. Trevor is largely throwing to guys who are wide ass open. He's a tremendous prospect but the big question with him is how is he going to look when his team's backups aren't better than the opposition's starters. 

    Come on now,  Trevor is throwing dimes.  Dropping balls into guys hands.  Its not the system.  He is legit the best prospect since luck and in reality probably better coming out than him

     

    first 6ish plays he is throwing insane passes  This is just one game

     

    The throw at 6:18.  Come on man that is nfl worthy

    What college offense isn't wide open these days? The NFL is following suit. The college game has been the primary driver of innovation in the game for awhile now.

    Nah man I am just saying his gaudy stats should be taken with a grain of salt.  Not saying he isnt good.  But their offense is spread them out wide open.  Just like with trask that gives me a bit of concern as he is just throwing to open spaces/wideouts where as someone like Trevor is calling audibles at the line and throwing dimes into coverage

     

    all I am saying is its hard to really drill down and evaluate guys in offenses like howel.  He does throw a nice deep ball

    If you liked Johnny Manziel you'll like Sam Howell

    Nah he is not as athletic as Manziel but their throwing style is similar.  I would say he is a really poor mans brett Farve at this stage in the game.  I dont dislike him but I sure as hell dont think he is a top 5 pick this year and in no way better than the top guys this year.
