man, if our perspective of Samuel and dj comes 70% of the way close to our expectations.... we are going to have a lot of money locked up in the skill positions come 2021.

Solid case to make him our number one. It will be interesting to see if the staff sees it the same way.

Number 1 isn't a position it's a fantasy term.

Who gave him that nickname? Sounds like a D League basketball team name.

It sound's like a slight on his vision.

Must have picked it up at Ohio State.  Remember hearing it during the draft.

Oh, so you rejected the article because it was titled "Why Curtis Samuel Is Primed To Be The Panthers’ Best Receiver" instead of "Why Curtis Samuel Is Primed To Be The Panthers' X Receiver?" Got it. That makes sense.

Personally I'm happy we have receivers worth mentioning. The way the game is evolving, speed, and YAC are key as the ball needs to get out of the QB's hands faster. You need receivers that get open quickly that can break a tackle and get up-field. I know even before Cam's injury people were looking for the shots, but that is an inefficient way to run the offense as we did under Shula, having a short game allowed us to see one of the most consistent Panther's offenses in a long while. And this was still with the OL injuries in effect after Moton had to move to RT to make room for Clark. 

Even with the adversity, and lingering trouble after Week 10ish, Cam still finished with a 68% completion percentage. He'd never eclipsed 61.7% back in 2013. So aside from the weapons, I'm most intrigued in how this offense will continue to develop as we upgraded the offensive line, and our young skill players -- CMC, Moore, Samuel, and Thomas all have another year under their belts.

Someone forward this to Ron.

Barring injury I'm expecting big things.  This DJ & Curtis combo will be very dangerous.  Don't care who is called X or Y, we just need results.

I'm glad someone in the media finally said something about Curtis.  His injury and heart situation somehow got him almost forgotten.  The dude was pick 40....he is really really good.  I was getting pissed when some criticized our draft because we didn't take a receiver in the first 3 rounds.

Like Luke said "  “Can we just give the ball to Curtis every play? He scores every time!”

Just the fact that we’re actually excited about our wr’s is a testament to how much the offense has changed under Turner. 

If we can KO the Injury Bug this year I expect big time #s on offense.

Speaking of Samuel, was I dreaming or did Ron actually say something along the lines of "We don't know what to do when both are in the game (him & DJ)"??

I think last year early on this came up in the pre-season, it obviously got figured out IMO by Norv. They IMO honestly compliment each other well, and share similar traits Samuel is the faster of the two, but both of them are good with the ball in hands, however Moore is about 15 lbs heavier (5'11 / 215) he's harder to bring down through contact and has excellent balance and is low enough with his center of gravity that he keeps his feet to get YAC even after contact in air. 

Very excited to see them both receive full time reps with Wright, and Smith rotating in and potentially Ross, or Godwin. I will say when you look at Norv's offenses traditionally back in SD he featured a 6'4+ guy (Jackson / Floyd) so I am surprised we haven't / didn't bring in someone with size and athleticism via the draft.

I'm optimistic as hell, but I can't help thinking we are only going to scrape the potential of these two players:

1) Curtis dealt with injuries/heart issues his first year and a half in the league

2) DJ Moore was considered a practice squad talent by our coaching staff for half of his rookie year

3) Cam's shoulder is a major concern... might not even be able to take this offense to the next level

I predict they'll be primed for a major contract just as they begin to hit full stride.
