Jeremy Igo

Quarterback Possibilities for the Carolina Panthers

Recommended Posts

I like what I saw of Allen.  He has a good arm and pocket awareness and think with the right coaching, he could be a good value.  I've always liked Taylor too so wouldn't object to bringing him in.

You do realize that Cam could not throw a ball 20 yards in December, right? 

You do realize there are things called corrective surgery, rest, and healing right?

Sure, and I hope that all works out.

I also hope that if it doesn't the Panthers are ready because I am a Panthers fan first and foremost.

Let's see what happens in the draft. One game with Allen really isn't enough to tell, but it should earn him another shot at the backup QB position. 

My inclination is to roll with a vet like Bridgewater or Taylor and see what happens in the draft. Too many holes to spend a high pick, so if Grier drops to the fourth or if the Panthers can trade up into the 3rd for him, fine. I would just hesitate to use any of the early picks the Panthers have right now on a QB not likely to see the field next year.

You do realize Cam had that ALREADY on the same shoulder, and STILL has rookie level footwork at this point in his career? Cam was never drafted to be a superior passer.( and sadly I again say because of his race, he was never coached to be a high level NFL passer) He has come this far because of his physicality ( for the simple folk...that means he is big and strong and can take a hit other weak QB's cant). That attribute gets lower and lower each year.

I really like Tyrod and would love to see him if Cam can't play.     I'd take him over Bridgewater because of the injuries.

Grier is a gamer though, I wouldn't mind that pick either but I don't think he'll fall far enough to make sense.

A QB unable to throw the ball 20 yards because of a chronically injured throwing shoulder is kinda serious.

Can't be chronically injured if it never fully healed. He was playing injured. You've said it yourself. This team had a bad habit of playing our QB when he shouldn't be playing. Again, let the guy heal. 

There were also two parts to my post...

A guy like WVU's Will Grier is projected anywhere from rounds 2-4. If he is there in 3 or 4 for the Panthers I would like to see him taken. Local kid with plenty of up side. Good value there for a mid round pick.

 

 

Then do we go West Coast?  I would say so.  Greer does not have a cannon, but he can put the ball where it needs to be when it needs to be there. 

If we know that Cam is going to be limited--yes. 

As a project, I am also interested in Justin Hansen, Ark St.  He is a project, needs to work on his delivery, but a 6-4 running QB....

Unfortunately I think Bridgewater will be out of our price range and the saints may be giving him a big contract being that they gave up a big draft pick to get him. I think we are going to be stuck with drafting a qb because of the limited cap space available and the holes we currently have on the roster. Even with a healthy Cam we are not beating many with the O line play and D line play we had this past year. Honestly if Cam can’t go we are screwed this year anyway.

That pretty much means we need a QB for next season and possibly the following if we are resting him like Luck.

Did anybody read further than the first part? I know it's early but damn...

One thing getting overlooked a bit is Allen also has a hurt shoulder. Being the last game of the year, we didn't hear much about it, but I'd say there's some degree of uncertainty even with him. Think about it. Three different quarterbacks (Newton, Heinke and Allen) all got serious injuries playing behind our offensive line. Rounds 1 - 3 need to be all OL and DL. We can't make up for poor drafts in a single offseason, but we need to start laying the ground work.

Hadn't thought about Tyrod, but that could actually work.  He did take the Bills to the playoffs (take that with a grain of salt).  Could definitely fit here for a year if needed.

It’s a tough call. I really like what I saw with Allen but we need to see more against teams gamepkanning for him. I don’t want to go spend 10-15 mil on a QB when we need pass rushers and not crazy about drafting one high. Not sure what the solution is

I would rather take a chance on Haskins than Grier.

@Jeremy Igo Could going into the season with only Cam and Kyle be a blessing in disguise? We could focus on young defensive talent and maybe o-line in this draft. If Cam's shoulder holds up and Rivera turns it around and gets us back to the playoffs, then sure that's great and all. Most likely scenario is the shoulder just can't hold up for a grueling NFL season anymore. If that happens then surely the wheels would fall off yet again. Tepper would be forced to clean house. We'd be rid of the JR stench for good. And also the 2020 QB class is loaded. Complete rebuild, Luke and Cam prime wasted unfortunately, but at least we'd have CMC, DJ, Samuel, and Thomas paired with our new qb.

Hell no on Bridgewater. That final game was his audition and he looked worse than Allen. And Tyrod Taylor is terrible.

I would add to those saying that you shouldn't draft a quarterback in a weak quarterback class, you might want to take a look back at the quarterback class the year Newton was drafted.
