Joe Person: Panthers don't love other QB's besides Lawrence and Wilson

Funny.

They were literally saying the same thing last year with the top 1-2 QBs then said they were Much higher on This QB class and would rather grab one from This crop.

 

now that they’ve put themselves in QB purgatory and not in range to draft one. All of a sudden we claim that we don’t like these QBs? 
Bunch of PR bs

Likely correct. At 8 with SF trading up, we are in rough shape and more or less hoping the guy(s) we want will fall. That’s not a great position to be in. The Watson fiasco really did mess some stuff up too. Hasn’t really been great for us since we dropped from 3 to 8.

if this turns out to be true I would worry that ownership or the Deep Scouting side has the same awful ethos that you'll find on this forum, where the same 10 posters are always suggesting we wait until the next class when the perfect prospect may fall to us whereever were drafting

unless you're picking at #1, the guy you're taking has question marks, and those question marks will look a certain way relative to each position

you don't pass on talented players just because you're waiting for the perfect prospect perfect scenario unicorn that never comes 

 

Likewise, you don't pass on talented players if the QB that everyone thinks you desperately need to draft has too many question marks raised by your scouts for you to be comfortable with him.

I'm all for taking late round fliers on Lance, Newman, Mond, Mills etc - all guys with technical flaws that you MAY be able to coach out of them if your QB Coach is good enough (and has the time).

I'm not ok with taking guys at #8 (or hell, trading UP for guys) that aren't bonafide generational QB prospects.

Delusion.

Interesting? I guess if all clear we are not giving up on Watson?

Former Panther and retired player hopes for the best for a current young buck. Where exactly are you seeing ANY indication "if all clear" ( which wont even be the case, but lets play) we are not giving up on Watson. 

You reach too much respectfully.

Maybe learn how to read? I said I guess if he is all clear at some point would we still look at trading for him. Damn newb

The fact you even shared it shows your reach. 

The further fact you had to defend yourself with a personal insult is even more telling.

I love the smoke screens that happen during the draft season!

If Lane is there at 8, I'm pretty sure we're sprinting up there to take him.

If we don't, there are some other incredible talents at OT and CB which would greatly improve our franchise.

I'm good either way.  Unless they draft a RB or something...

    • Substitute rigatoni.  After you slop some sauce on, who cares what shape your pasta is.  
    • Darnold has proven he knows how to lose, and he was our last choice as a free agent QB. No other teams were interested in trading for Darnold in a QB desperate market. Oh course we are taking Fields and Lance if they fall to 8, and you should be happy about it.
    • I think there's a lot of truth here, but I will say something that may not be popular. I think Cam was a good QB that had could have been great. The GM never did enough to protect his blind side, but Cam never did enough to consistently fix his weaknesses as far as inconsistent mechanics, holding on to the ball too long, and simply consistent solid decision making. I don't know how much of the blame goes to the GM and unimaginative, old school OCs and an an HC, and how much of the blame was Cam's. But, it was a combination. Hell, they even drafted twin towers to help Cam out, but then they never got him an exclamation point at LT. Cam had great moments here--piercing that skin of the elite, but he never completely punched through. And, he is running out of time to get it done. I think this season will be his last opportunity (and I am rooting for him, unless we somehow get in the way).  I say all this because Luke was truly a great MLB. His elite play and consistency was rock solid! I think Luke was a greater LB than Cam has been a QB. I will admit that it's more difficult to be a great QB, but I don't believe that Cam and Luke should always be necessarily linked as the the main reasons why we were semi-successful during the Rivera era. I believe that Cam was an imperfect cracked wooden crutch that also held us back in some respects, while Luke was made of strong aluminum alloy that we could always depend on to get the job done. Just an observation and attempt at an objective opinion based over a period of time. It's my take and I'm sticking to it.
