Does anyone disagree with this statement?


Recommended Posts

I disagree not with the notion that QB needs an upgrade (it absolutely does), but that those are the only options for 'success'. Call me optimistic but if the FO and staff feels another option/path not listed here is the right one, as long as action has been taken (ideally a clear step away from counting on Teddy as the unchallenged starter), I want to give the benefit of this specific doubt.

I think this is fair, but many of us are rightfully getting pretty damn antsy with the QB position, and I think it's an usual year where there are so many options available. 4 QBs in the draft who can be true franchise QBs and are worth a top 10 pick (which we have, hopefully, for the last time any time soon). Then very rare opportunities for veteran franchise QBs in Watson and Stafford, and maybe Rodgers or even Dak. I just don't think there's a better opportunity than now for us to get our franchise QB.

The Carolina Panthers need to get either Deshaun Watson, Matt Stafford, Aaron Rodgers, or a QB in the top 10 in this draft in the 2021 offseason for it to be a successful offseason.

I do.

We all know Bridgewater isn’t the answer. But frankly the Panthers aren’t in a great position to move on from him. He has a $23m cap hit and no team will be jumping for joy to add him to their roster. Picking 8 in the first round,  there are a lot of QB hungry teams picking ahead of the Panthers. 

So, I would not be surprised if the Panthers continue building the roster through the draft and be forced to roll with Bridgewater next season. Could we see someone like Darnold or Trubisky brought in to compete with Teddy? Definitely possible. But if they can draft as well as they did last year, the team will be better regardless.

Also agreed, but the added complication this year is that there are also a ton of teams who are openly QB-needy. It's a seller's market, and while that doesn't impact Carolina's specific need it does add a layer to.make sure they aren't mortgaging a still-developing future.

Yes.

I've said all along if we can get any of the top 4 QBS in the draft without giving up more draft capital I would be happy.
