I did somewhat believe the Mac Jones to SF hype, but after watching the two QB's throw today there is no way SF lets Fields get away from them.

Our QB options will come down to Lance or Jones. BPA seems like the most logical thing in my mind, OT or trade back a few sports for a CB.

Better luck next year. Or maybe just be more aggressive in finding your guy?

Mac Jones is going at 3. You can believe it or not but it will happen. I saw someone said that Mac is similar to Matt Ryan. Kyle Shanahan is trying to get his 16’-17’ Matt Ryan.

Honestly, who knows.  You never believe anything you hear in draft season?  Right?

I'd love to have the excitement of a young QB.  I'd also love to have a franchise LT or a shutdown CB.  If there's a top end run on QBs, like 1-5, we're guaranteed to have a really good foundational piece.

As far as QB?  You'll have to find them elsewhere.  It's probably not going to be a draft pick unless we get lucky.  Is that a trade for Darnold?  Again, who knows.

This could also be the big QB hype, but teams are going to go and get their guys.  QB or otherwise.  We'll just have to see and enjoy the ride!

Honestly I wouldn’t have a problem with signing Alex smith or trading for Minshew or Darnold although I would rather have Minshew than Darnold.

 

Minshew has had a QBs rating over 90 in his first two years despite being on the jags. Although I don’t think the Jags offensive is horrible it’s average at best. At worst we end up getting an average QB in my opinion. If he fails then we can always draft a qb later. Why not save our draft picks and build a great team to where we can win without a great Qb?

I still don't buy the Jones with the 3rd pick, anything is possible I just can't believe it till it happens. I don't want Jones if he falls to 8, just get a LT and start planning a 2022 high pick. June cut Teddy and do in 2021 what we should have done in 2020.

How many more Teddy Bridgwater do Panthers fans want?

Cutting Teddy as June 1 cut is the dumbest thing ever. That’s a 5m hit for 2022 dead cap and giving us 7m for this season to sign who? Who’s left on the market?

Doesn't matter. We aren't competing with Teddy and if we can save that much money it's a win. If we can't trade him he will be cut, the situation with the team and him isn't going to be reconciled and Tepper can't sell tickets with another year of Teddy after what he did last year. We can sign a cut QB after the draft and still have money left over. 

What is the difference between Teddy and any other QB laying in the trash pile? Saving millions...

You draft a QB and cut Teddy next year without having any dead cap in 2022. Then you erase and burn every stupid memories of Teddy being a Panthers’ quarterback like it never happened.

So he's an unathletic white guy that wears braided belts and does better with an all pro caliber receiver?  Sounds right

We are not contending regardless of draft or who plays QB, might as well let the rookie play. Still, we are better off without Teddy than with him in any scenario. There will be a couple of QBs available at Teddy's skill level for dirt cheap after the draft, they are still with teams hoping to trade them...just like Teddy. Save a couple of million and get another whoever.

    • Yep, you will see me slowly fade away on the Huddle after the draft and as the season gets closer.  I literally get more excited about the roster build than I do about the season itself.  Once the season is here, It's mostly just a poo session after a loss or everyone high-fiving after a win, which I have no real interest being part of. 
    • Ok I'll go do one right now.
    • About the 3T--you are right--I expect a reluctant cut after the draft, etc.  We cannot meet all of these needs in one draft---I think we are hoping to address 3 of them, which was exposed a bit (in theory) during the Darnold trade.  I think there is something to analyzing the layout of the draft, looking at what we have done in free agency, and using some common sense to figure out the strategy. I think the first round weapons are making Fitterer salivate--Pitts, Waddle, Smith, and Chase.  I think we get one of them.  I want a T, but they probably see what a third weapon does for the passing game--matchups, etc.  My guess is that they see OT being very deep, so they will go weapon/OL in rounds one and two. So we have signed Melvin and Bouye--experienced, one-year plugs at CB and we have Jackson.  It sure looks as though we are preparing for life without a drafted QB.  Meanwhile, we can expect YGM to step up, Reddick, Burns, and maybe Fox to pressure the QB.  That is what we hope to do on defense. It is my opinion that we intend to find an impact weapon in round 1, an OT in round 2, and maybe an IOL or QB in round 3.  CB?  maybe, but a 3rd round CB is a project. QB?  If Mond or Mills or Trask is sitting there, I think we have to take him.
