Panthers Wire's Tim Weaver (via Jordan Rodrigue): Panthers 'Love' Fields, 'Like' Jones!


Recommended Posts

Take this with a grain of salt, as it is the Lying Season, and smoke...screens are in the air!

"Jourdan Rodrigue has been covering the Rams this season for the Athletic but we can assume she’s still as plugged-in for Carolina as any beat reporter. Speaking with Nora Princiotti on The Ringer’s new NFL podcast, Rodrigue said she knows the Panthers “love” Justin Fields and “like” Mac Jones."

"I know they love Justin Fields. I know they like Mac Jones."

So, here we go. Take it FWIW!

The idea of trading up for Fields makes me nervous because he's inconsistent.

Honestly, the idea of trading up for any of the "runner ups" to Lawrence makes me nervous (for different reasons with each one)

I'm too old to be nervous. I'm just waiting for us to shoot our shot.

It doesn't escape me that there are opportunity costs with trading draft capital, but Rhule seems to get a lot out of middling talent. Fitterer ought to at least be able to acquire some middling talent for a couple of years to hold the fort. Maybe this is a main reason why Tepper is so intent on getting our franchise QB.

This is my stance as well, especially considering we could be looking at picks 8, 40, and 2022 1st  to take a 50/50 chance at best on a rookie QB. I also do not think any of the top 4 make it to pick 8 as this is the craziest year I have seen involving QB's

When have you seen the Panthers “shoot their shot” recently on a franchise QB?

I'm not just talking about quarterbacks, and not just recently.

Think of Sean Gilbert, for example.

Those were different shooters.

Which is why I'm hoping for better.

Also hoping David Tepper doesn't try to be Jerry Jones.
