Panthers trade for Sam Darnold

Our GM is a moron. It's over. This is a dumb move made 100% out of desperation, bad timing, and it's a bad deal on our end. We got screwed and now we have an inferior QB and we're out a second round pick. What the hell is Fitterer thinking? We have the worst GM in the NFL.

this isn't desperation.  Desperation is spending 3 first rounders for Mac Jones. 

CMC isn't 37 year old Frank Gore.  Rhule/Brady isn't the Jets coaching staff.  DJ Moore isn't what he was throwing to.

I mean, there was no way for Darnold to be successful in NY.  He is a calculated gamble.  If he was coming in with this class of QBs...he would be ahead of some in the top 5.

You have no room to talk poo about anybody.  Judging by your posts here you are a complete moron.

And you’re the mouth breathing cheese wheezer who will be sitting here next offseason talking yourself into a really promising 4th round QB prospect with some upside and espousing the glories of “trusting the process” while our division rivals aim for star rookie QBs who will dominate the division

I really don’t think I can stomach watching football anymore if one of the QBs we’re  passing on goes on to become what they’re expected to be

i think that would be it for me

 

Tbh this fanbase deserves qb purgatory. I will sit back and laugh. No need to get upset over something we have zero control over. But the amount of cognitive dissonance by this fanbase truly makes this forum a must read.

That's the only issue I have with this. But, we weren't privy to his market either. I don't like it, but I don't believe it will be particularly crippling either. It is what it is.

Perhaps they've found a franchise QB. We'll see.

Yeah I don't know what his market was maybe it was market price more or less, but regardless I think this was an overpay for what we're getting. The Jets have been the definition of dysfunctional lately and he had poor OL and weapons there, but he was still pretty bad for the most part in his time there. Does he have the tools to be successful? Maybe... But it'll take a hell of a job from Brady and company to get him anywhere near the point of being even good enough to bring this team to the playoffs, let alone a "franchise QB" who can actually win a SB.

I generally have an open mind and like letting things play out, but on the surface my initial reaction is definitely that this is not a great move. Hope I'm wrong and he absolutely balls out with weapons and (maybe) an OL here... Sewell is my dream at #8 now, gotta just hope that the Bengals give in to Burrow's wishes for his WR. I doubt they pass up on Sewell but there is a slim chance.

CMC played against Darnold twice his senior year. Robby Anderson had him throwing to him.  Joe Brady is supposed to be a QB guru and we already picked up the option.  It's as if they see something people here don't...what a profound idea lol.

I said it could happen weeks ago.. 

If the compensation was low.. Low risk high reward for a 23 year former top 3 pick talent player..

Not bad... Now build this Oline and Secondary up.. And let's play!!

And Remember we have alot of FA money next 2 years.. So the draft won't be our only way to build this team.. I'm good with this.

The market was us.

If it happens then so be it. At least we are in a position where whatever happens we can come out in a good position

I understand, my only issue is we could be sitting here having the same discussion about darnold as we have been with teddy all off season. I mean it could be a Neverending cycle.
