Darnold Presser

True. 

While Darnold certainly wasn't hired for his Q&A prowess, he should have enough money squirreled away by now to afford a public speaking coach.  If I were Tepper, I'd hire one for him ASAP.  Shouldn't take too much effort to clean up his verbal pauses and it would make his press conferences a lot less painful to endure.

I think every QB the Panthers have ever had were painful to watch in one way or another. I don’t think Darnold was any less. He’s 23, becoming an adult will help.

Agreed.  

Among the long time starters, Steve Beuerlein, Rodney Peete and Jake were tolerable to decent public speakers.  All the rest of our starters would've benefitted greatly from joining Toastmasters.

Yeah while U nerds were polishing your Public speaking skills in the mirror Darnold was throwing lasers 🤷‍♂️  
 

Also every athlete does this in some form. Hockey players are the worst 

What a silly take.

Delhomme was great. Beuerlein and Peete were good. Everybody else? Oy.

But as others have said, they're not hired to do PR. As long as they can perform on the field, I don't care if they look like awkward sixth graders in front of a mic.

Going to be a long season. Half this board has already written this kid off.

And half this boards opinion would amount to zero in the grand scheme of things. Critical people are going to do what they do best and that is bitch, piss and moan until they find a new target to criticize.

I see a lot of fans get their heart set on one player, and then when we don't get that player they basically throw a tantrum and say everybody and everything sucks.

The reality is there's not just one answer to a given question.

He's 23 years old and plays in a league where grown men pound each other into soil for amusement. Is it really that big of a deal?
