Sir do you watch football ?

That’s like trading a prime Cam Newton for Lamar Jackson.......

It was sarcasms.  I am fully aware of how great he was.  You only read the first line.  I followed it up with my honest opinion.

Just to clear up some erroneous cap information, the Panthers would not be on the hook for $40M in ANY season they have Deshaun Watson. The team trading the player is responsible for any signing bonus as that money has already been paid. The signing bonus is then typically distributed over the life of the contract. Here is Deshaun's contract per Overthecap:

Forget the Prorated Bonus column. Houston is responsible for that and it will affect their cap, not the Panthers. Therefore, the most the Panthers would pay is $37M in 2023 (Base+Roster Bonus).

Likewise, the Panthers, not the Texans would be responsible for McCaffrey's prorated bonus. Here's his contract:

Because at the end of the day, it's all circumstantial. CMC absolutely did nothing wrong, but in this league there's very few QB's you can call elite or 'franchise', and those are the ones that get you a championship. Julio Jones can't carry the Falcons, Ezekiel Elliot can't carry the Cowboys, it just is what it is. It all starts at quarterback.

I would love to keep him and hate to see him ever leave, but if that's the price for a guaranteed franchise quarterback just coming into his prime, it's about bringing a Lombardi to the Carolina's.

I really don't understand how this could be a remotely controversial take. Does anyone think Taints fans would turn down Deshaun Watson for Alvin Kamara? Vikings fans turn down Watson for Dalvin Cook? 

It sort of boggles the mind that people cannot simply watch actual NFL games and visibly witness what is not even a remotely new thing in the league......QB's are the most critical component to your success in the NFL. 

The thing that is so perplexing is that this is literally regarded as COMMON KNOWLEDGE in the NFL.....so how in the world is it missing some of our fans completely?? Do we have hundreds of Hurney children logged on??

Holy punctuation, Batman.

Once you read this about 5 times it starts to make sense. And then you realize how much dumb is packed into it. 

Impressive.

Some of ya'll crazy mofo's are putting Cmac on a damn pedestal.  This is getting ridiculous.  Although I can say the man has taken this team and put it on his back and willed us to a grand total of 28 wins in his 4 seasons with 5 of the wins when he didnt play.

If you want to trade CMC to anyone it would be Denver.   You would get the most in return anyway.  Huston does not want him in this scenario.  Maybe a 3 way trade of some sort could be worked out. 

Also I doubt you will find anyone to take on Teddy and his contract.

I'd trade his ass in a blink if it meant the return was a Watson tier QB. Davis and the RB committee outright proved CMC's worth in relation to his contract is practically moot.

Hell, even if we don't get Watson I'd dangle him for a move in the draft. The NFC South is WIDE open right now.

CMC had a 2,000 yard season and our record was 5-11. Derrick Henry is the best rb in all of football right now. Not saying rb is not important. But it's highly unlikely a running back can tote a team into the superbowl alone. A great to good quarterback on the other hand is a different story.

Eh, trading him to move up in the draft I am not sure I would be willing to do. That's one of those you have to be REALLY sure that you are getting "The Guy." If you end up trading a top 2-3 RB in the NFL for a bust QB........that is a hard one to ever live down as a GM and/or GM/coach. 

I definitely wouldn't want to trade CMC away for nickels or a gamble but for an established elite QB, I wouldn't hesitate even for a fraction of a second.

You can say the same thing about Watson but 9 less wins if you include injury. Both are data points you could use to make the same argument.
