Didn’t have a single sack after week 1. He was great for us in the rotation in past years but last year he was useless.

Hoping this isn't one of those things we later regret.

Honestly, though, I had lost track of Wes in all the other news and moves.

I think his usefulness in our new "hybrid" scheme might have been part of the reason we didn't pursue him.  He's a backup DE in a 4-3, that's it.  He's too small to push inside in a 3-4, not athletic enough to stand up as a LB, so . . . best of luck to him.

Replaced by Cox Jr, as predicted :3

Guy was always humble and appreciative of the Panthers even when they were cutting/signing him it seemed weekly.  Hope he got paid well, he deserves it.

He will be a solid albeit unspectacular rotational guy for them. The switch to the 3-4 probably led to him not being brought back. Not a worry for us, IMO. We probably upgraded this offseason.

CLASSIC Saints poaching an old Panther backup move.

Too bad we never poach theirs

    • Hey, at least they did away with the cages.  right dotardites ?
    • I love folks on both sides overselling or under evaluating Cam. Cam has always had poor mechanics with his feet, his body position, and his shoulder.  He hasn't really worked on it until last year with fortunately significant improvement. Much of his talent was being a dual threat QB andhe was one of the first to embrace the run-pass offense. Nothing in that video was wrong really. It was simplistic and not fully adequate given his injury which was documented, but the folks who think Cam didn't need to change and that he could lead back to the Superbowl without changing or adapting are ignoring the reality.  This isn't 2015 this is 2019. What teams learned is you can beat Cam pressing receivers off the line, blitzing up the A gaps and spying him when he tries to run. Cam has learned if you get the ball out quick and have checkdowns you can move the ball and negate the blitz. Couple that with accurate throws when teams try and single cover you when they blitz, and Cam has a formula to back off the blitz and give himself space. Having better talent and a good online helps a lot but Cam can help himself most by listening to Norv and Scott who have been around and know how to help him excel.
    • I'm fairly certain that all the players, coaches, and our Billionaire owner would respectfully disagree there.  You simply can't practice the same way in a hotel or convention center as an indoor facility designed for football....
