    • Staying put, hopefully one of these guys pans out this year
      12
    • Bring in some journeyman vet out there that will get cut or traded
      11
    • Kaepernick, he can play. We have Reid already. No issue here
      10
    • Another young guy with some tools that the coaches can mold and compete

What are you doing

A. Keep holding hope 1 of Allen or Grier will pan out this season if something happens

B. Kaepernick.  You dont have an issue here.  The guy can play, he wont be a distraction 

 

C. Some vet will be available via cut or trade.  

 

D. Some other young guy with some tools that the coaches can work with and bring competition.

What will happen is we will sign a vet to back up Cam, Grier to 3rd string and Allen to practice squad. 

This would be the most ideal situation, imo.

Ride it out with what we have. If Cam goes down then likely we are drafting top 10 next year anyway. May as well see what we have and if not draft a new QB next year.

Allow Hurney to make a move, as he wishes, and Tepper has to OK whatever he comes up with if it cost draft capital.

 Yes, please. Let’s devote more resources to do what we should have this Spring. 

  There are too many question marks with the team as a whole to trade anything more than a 4-5th for some help. And for that you will probably get more of what you already have.If Cam can’t go, just start the wrecking ball. 

 If you want to help Cam and the QB position, trade for an elite LT that is actually available. Because we got OL issues. I know that’s not the “fun” way to look at things but the truth hurts some folks.

The fact after last season Tepper said we will not going into another season without a viable back up and then we went into training camp and heading into this season with with Allen, Heinicke and a 3rd round rookie shows me they plan to do nothing.

It doesn't make any sense to try to salvage the season if Cam goes down or just hasn't got it any more.  You play the youngsters and find out if you have anything there with real bullets flying.  If you find something, great, maybe you're still competitive.  If you don't find anything, you know what you have, and you have a top 10 pick to leverage toward getting a franchise QB.

Let's face it, Cam has a $21 million cap hit next year, but only 2 million is dead.  He's easy to cut if he shows he doesn't have it, which gives you all sorts of options next spring.

This is what I think will happen.

    • A team might have a lot more injuries than the opposing team. Keeps a fair balance.
    • Its purpose is to ensure a level playing field. Say you have everyone active but Team A has five players injured while Team B only has one. Team A now has a perceived advantage because they technically have a deeper roster. Forcing both teams to sit 8 players is meant to nullify that possibility.
    • It all comes down to Rivera.   Are the Panthers good enough to go on the road and win a game against a so-so team that sucked last year and has a rookie QB in his third ever game?  Yes. Will there be any sign that this coaching staff understands how to do that? That is the question. Backs against the wall, staring down 0-3 and the increasing likelihood that if this thing goes south in a hurry heads will roll... I’d like to think we’ll come out 1-2, but... I still think the Panthers will go into AZ underprepared.  They will underperform.  Maybe it will be close at some point, but I just see the little mistakes adding up to some truly unfortunate momentum changes in this game. On the road, every mistake is magnified. AZ has nothing to lose and will be relaxed and focused.  Panthers will start out looking like they could win this thing, then there will be lapses in focus and suddenly AZ has the ball in good field position. Plus...and I mean this for real...the best narrative for the NFL is the rise of Murray and the decline of the Panthers.  I find that games like this often favor which ever story is the best narrative for the corporate interest.  What helps the NFL more: Kyle Allen leads a mediocre Panthers over and even more mediocre Cardinals, OR Murray balls out and puts up a highlight reel as the lowly Panthers trip over their own stupid feet? The second one. Probably another grinding loss. Panthers 20 Cardinals 27
