I think a lot of people are not seeing it because #89 is gone or for whatever reason...

But as a member of the Huddle for a long time, we have finally settled the age old WR2 problem. This is the first time in ages that we have a legitimate passing game.

Actually there is enough recieving threats on this team now that Shula needs to be on a short leash. There is no reason why this team should not be on it's way to a top 10 offense. Add this to our defense and we should have a legitimate shot at a superbowl.

The fact that we now have 2 Giants that can do this

It is going to put a Lot of pressure on defenses. It's going to be very tough for them to bring any safety in the box for run support in addition to Olson taking a LB away. If Williams and Turner can blast open some holes in the run game, our offense is going to be a well oiled machine.

I get the excitement.  

 

And it was awe-inspiring to know Funchess was high on our board and we went and got him (actually both he and Williams).

 

But anointing him the new #1 may be premature?

Hey, it's May the official month of Annointing. Besides all that will shake out in camp and preseason.

 

Also him being the #1 doesn't mean he's better. It's just a different position. See my earlier post about X and Y receiver.

To me, it's irrelevant who's called the #1 or #2. Doesn't matter, as long as both are on the field at the same time. It'll be like the Giants trying to decide who's #1 and #2 between Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham jr. Who cares?! Just get them on the field at the same time.

 

That said, I do think DeVin will line up in the slot more, since he's had experience lining up as online and offline WR and TE. Rivera said he knew what everyone's job was,

Right on. I agree. And the slot in my scenario is the Y receiver...just so others know. I don't maybe some have heard those terms X, Y and Z receivers and didn't know what they were. And I think you're right. Funchess can play slot probably very well with his experience. Excited to watch this all play out.

Love it. I'm as excited about this guy as I was about Kelvin this time last year.

In Nippleshorts I trust. This dude can really spot talent, especially at receiver. Remember who he said was the only complete NFL ready receiver last year? Beckham. Then he drafted probably the 2nd best receiver in the class at 28. What a baller.

been watching him for two years now being a U of M fan and he is probably best in the slot or in the same roll as Jimmy Graham was used in while in NO his break away speed is amazing i think last year was ironically luck for panthers fans because of his injury being moved to another position and having to deal with Devin Gardener's inability to grow as a QB without all that falling in place and him replicating his numbers from 2013 he would have been a top 10-15 LOCK 

 

 

sorry for the lack of punctuation its a bad habit and just to let y'all know long time lurker (3-4 years now) just decided today to sign up for all pro and contribute my input since moving to the DC/MD area from SC there aren't too many people out here interested in my panthers banter lol

Per RR, Shula was always making Funchess the primary read on almost all the drills and looked nice in the slot in particular.  Guy does indeed seem like the real deal.  I'm finding it increasingly more difficult to not get my hopes up here....

I was talking to a guy from Dallas yesterday at UNC.  He said that the Panthers are winning 8 games this year, because they play in the south (not that the Skins, Giants,and birdiies are better).  He said that Cam is inconsistent and has no protection and weapons, so the offense is going to be terrible again.  After I made a few "Longest Yard" jokes (Asking him if Adam Sandler or Burt Reynolds is going the be their qb), I explained to him that the offense is what we are getting excited about.

He said the Cowboys are winning 12 games and going to the SB.

 

He said this:

1. Jonathan Stewart is all we have at RB, and he is injury prone.  Cam is inconsistent.

(Good point, for an outsider.  However, we also have a new #34, Whittaker, Toddman, and Tolbert--oh, and Thompson if we need him, I might guess).

2, Oher sucks.

(Turning that perception around is the key to the season.  I feel confident we can get him to average, which is huge).

3. You have no WRs, except Benjamin. 

(He didn't watch the draft and has not been watching free agency.  I really think Funchess will be an instant hit.  The wildcard is Hill.  If he turns the corner, the NFL is on notice. Ginn/Brown/Byrd/etc. could become threats as well.

 

Here was my rebuttle:

 

1. Romo has won 2 playoff games in his career.  Cam has 1.  Cam has 9 seasons to catch Romo.  So shut up about consistency.  You know not what it means.  About Stewart/#34/Whittaker---how is your committee of RBs better?

2. Oher and Matsko will get it back in gear.  Besides, your line is great because it has to be for Romo to play well.  He is a pudgy, immobile choker.  Send the house after Cam and see what happens.

3. Dallas Day Care seems ok with burping players and tailing them to parties, restricting their social media etc. because they think they can win with idiots, junkies, and retards.  At the end of 2015, Panther WRs will be better than Dallas'.

 

Bottom line--Our defense is going to be better and we have been top 5 for past 2 seasons. You need help getting to the middle of the NFL.

Our special teams were terrible last year, mostly due to injuries.  This year, with Todman, Ginn, and the slew of depth we got with special teams ace distinctions,. we will have the BEST special teams in the NFL. 

And the offense is what everyone is waiting to see.  Cam is healthy and will know his WRs.  The OL will not have rookie G's this year, and our OTs are going to be better.  The WRs are now dangerous and a matchup problem.  We will have 8 wins before the Dallas game.
