like when???

Sacksonville in...17 or 18 whichever year that was. Jalen Ramsey was the anchor that made it that much easier for that pass rush to hit.

Their fallout was not on him.

if Fields becomes a star then Fitterer and rhule are gone

cant say I’d be willing to risk my nfl career on whatever angle they just talked themselves into 

Let me help you out.

If Sam doesnt turn into a quality QB AND we fail to find a good QB in 2022/2023 Rhule is gone.

When Sewell wasn't there and we couldn't get enough to trade back, this was a stellar pick. When Atlanta took Pitts I told my son we need a shutdown corner to compete and put Jackson in the slot. With Chinn moving to safety our secondary is going to be tough. I read that the guy Pitts hating playing against was Horn.

Welp this is gonna be my last post of the night. Shut up. How long have we needed a goddamn corner? 9 years ago Chris Gamble retired. Since fugging THEN. Yeah I woulda liked slater here too. But there are other tackles with traits. This was BPA Defensively

Uh since last year when we paid Shaq instead of BB? Or maybe Norman before that?

Fwiw, I can't think of many current players drafted in the top 8 that changed a team's fortunes singlehandedly, qb or otherwise.  There are a few, but not many.  Certainly none in the last couple of years.  

Exactly, no team is one player away from changing fortunes except for a QB position. Unfair expectations for a Top 10 player. If a top 10 player gets a second contract extension after rookie deal, then it's considered a good pick. Even as good as CMC is at 8, he couldn't prevent us from picking outside of top 10.

nobody cares about having a “quality QB”

It's not just changing the team, top 10 corners are busting at a very high rate.

Just think about the best corners in the league in the apst decade, then either look up, or think about where they were taken in the draft.

This front office are not following any type of analytical thinking.

    • Muscle memory.  The off hand is for stiff arming defensive linemen who are in his face after having collapsed the Jets offensive line.  If our O-line can be credible, the off hand placement should look more normal after a few games.
    • Lawdy, have we not had enough discussion on Fields? He is not, nor will be, a Panther.  He is irrelevant to any Panther discussion.  What might have been -- isn't.  Let's all let that ship sail away.
    • yes I'm seriously asking this. We passed on Fields because we had already invested in Darnold.  If we had pick 3 to start with we might not have invested in Darnold because at pick 3 we are guaranteed one of the top 3 QBs, at pick 8 we aren't.  Not sure what is so hard to understand about that. It wasn't a Fields vs Darnold decision on draft night.  The decision was made before than.   They real decision was do you spend a lot to draft capital to move up to 3 to guarantee a top-3 QB or spend less draft capital to guarantee Darnold. QB3 for 3 1st round picks to trade to pick 3 or Darnold for a 2nd, 4th, and 6th. Answer this, why did we acquire about pick 3?  Its very possible, and actually likely that it was for a QB. I'm not saying without a doubt they liked QB3 more than Darnold, I'm just saying its not as simple as Darnold vs Fields, you have to look at acquisition cost.  All things equal they might have prefered Fields but not all things were equal.  So a simple statement such as they liked Darnold more that Fields isn't necessarily true. Which means if we would have had pick 3 there is a chance we could have not traded for Darnold.
