Panthers Trade for Jared Allen

Recommended Posts

Everyone upset that we didn't do this for our WRs has to remember KB is still on the team. You add him plus next years draft and our WR core looks dominate. We just don't need to add a body for just one year when the guys we do have arnt doing too bad. If our WR started to crash and burn and we were 0-3 then yes they would have to make a move. But as it stands pass rush was glaring weakness that they shored up. Good move by GMan

Smitty has said this is his last year.

Get it done!

I'm a big Jared Allen fan, so I'm not complaining about the trade...   But man, i wish we cared as much about WR as we do defense.

lol LOVE the move.  He may not be what he once was, but I'll be damned if he won't bring some attitude back to our line that's been missing since after week 1 of last year.

Correct me if my memory is wrong here, but wasn't JA always strong against the run?

Yeah, I know he was a good pass rusher too, but his days of 22 sacks per year are long gone.  So if he can bring a decent (yet now-diminished) pass-rush presence and good run defense?  Sign me up for a 6th round pick.

Wow I'm shocked

That just happened? My last post I took out D.G being at fault for not getting the DE position better, one by FA acquisitions as I watched Demarcus Ware get a sack I think on the first play I believe as I watched the Broncos

So he shut me up

You have to have one for someone to make it for you.

Discussion about 'available' guys means free agents, unless you wanna unrealistically claim every player in the league is 'available' via trade just so you can sound marginally right (which would be a new thing for you).

This comes across as a enormous last ditch straw grab that not a single soul here is gullible enough to buy into. 

Everybody here has engaged in the discussion at some point in the last six months and trade targets have been a significant, if not the preeminent at points, aspect of that discussion.

Again, if trades in the league are so unknown to you that they blindside you when they happen, that's fine, we get that your mindset is stuck in decades gone by, but do everybody else a courtesy and assume everybody else posts with that same archaic mindset. Youre embarrassing yourself. It's the equivalent of a color blind man yelling at others that the sky is not blue nor the grass green.

 

 

edit: oh look, here's a thread from this month alone dedicated to discussing trade options. Am i imaginingthis scot?

I still think it's the right move to trade for Alshon if we can get him for a 2nd and agree to a reasonable extension. It's not like we are so overloaded at WR that we wouldn't have room once KB returns.

KB and Jeffery would be 1A and 1B on the outside. Let Funchess play the slot (assuming he even works out) as he's basically a hybrid WR/TE anyway. The rest of our guys can compete for those #4 and #5 spots.

I have a feeling they'll extend him this year. If not they're retarded to trade him or let him go

I was thinking the samething. Still excited about it, but man if only we could do this sort of thing for the offense.
