Panthers trade for Sam Darnold

Sam is a relatively low risk when it comes to what the Panthers have given up to get him.  He potentially has a high reward.

 

That's why you make that trade, if he works out you forget about that pick next year.

Got to love the poo posting here. I do think some posters here will never be happy, even if we win a Super Bowl...

Now with Darnold?  Who knows.  It's a gamble.  He was the #3 pick over all three years ago.  He's got talent.  He's made some nice looking plays.  We all know the Jets were a dumpster fire.  We also know that about half the first round QBs don't pan out historically.  Giving up a 6th rounder and next years 2nd and 4th rounder will be a good deal if he's even able to be a top 15 QB.

We also don't know enough about our new GM and the draft to know if he's going to make those picks count, or if we'll be hollaring for Hurney Magic again.

It's a development, but we'll have to see if it becomes a good one or a poo one.

Holy crap. We are officially worse than the Jets. Spin that how you need to, but it holds true. We are a bottom dwellers and Tepper is a bottom 5 owner. He took a mediocre team and turned it it into a bottom 5 team. We just took the Jets failure as a better option because they get to pick the 2nd best QB in the draft and our 'experts' want Teddy 2.0 for 2021, all hope no reason. 

Fire them all!

I am alright with this. It's not terrible. It's not great. 

Had it been a 3rd next year vs the 2nd now that would be much better. 

Low risk, high reward deal. 

We can draft OL this year. 

If Sam turns out good, its a big win for us. 

If Sam sucks, then we will be in a prime spot to draft a good QB next year. 

Which will pretty much determine Rhule's future in Carolina imo. 

Win win situation imo. 

Go big or go home.

I mean the GM addressed that today.  Darnold doesn’t take a QB out of play in the draft.  Why would he.  
 

it just gives them an option besides Teddy if things turn south and there is no QB they want....because they aren’t trading up (which is the smart call). 

It has been no secret that the Panthers have been desperate for a new QB. The FO has been doing damage control for weeks now because of that. The GM did more of that today. They pulled this trade off because they don't like the QBs that might be available when they pick.

Why the hell we won't to make things easier on a 5th underachieving QB? That would make sense if we already investing in darnold long term but it would be foolish to pass up a potential franchise qb just to make him feel comfortable.

They have Darnold for two years and might just think he can be the franchise guy. That would be why they want to make things easier for him.

Out of pained curiosity,  what would you have done to address the QB position?

Huffed on paint and seen a better option?

In all reality, not doing something dumb is better than doing something ridiculously desperate. This is worse than Teddy because we learned nothing from that failure while solving nothing at a higher cost then just a bad Teddy contract.

Even you would agree Darnold is better than Bridgewater. And we were significantly better than the Jets last year. You are now just spewing pure hyperbole

Literally nothing is better. What do you not get about that? This is Teddy 2.0 territory a year after learning nothing.

Go into draft, see what pick 8 brings. Then trade for garbage at a high price in desperation. We couldn't even make it to the draft before panicking. Honestly, not being sarcastic, guys in the second round with little chance of success had more to offer than Darnope because they all have not proved how bad they are in the NFL already. 

We are today, no less in need of a QB then before we traded for a long shot QB to be years of tape has ever shown him to be. Hoping Darnope will work out is the NFL equivalent of huffing paint cans in a paper bag.
