Tryout players

I seriously doubt 2 of the 3 between QBs between Walker, Grier and Stevens are on the roster come September.  I'm more partial to Walker, personally. Chalk Grier up as a loss and move on.  It's on Marty Hurney that we are likely to flush a former 3rd round pick, but it's pointless to keep him based on draft position if the team thinks he doesn't have what it takes.

Why I can't say I have confidence in Grier, he's going into his 3rd year and he may be a lot better then last time we saw him.

His parents must be crushed by this news.  One more year at university and Kevin Thomson could have completed his doctorate degree in Footballology.

Bottom line:  Stay in school kids.

Sounds like the starting QB for the Uni team I played for here in the UK.

He was dogshit, but he was going for a Doctorate and was on the team committee, so obviously he started every game.

Would grad school students be  eligible to play for college teams?

Apparently there is a waiver for such players. Still not sure what this gentleman’s major is but grad student are apparently eligible to compete in Div 1 beyond the 4 year mark.

They should be. I kind of like Ramsey as a backup. Smart QB just has limited ability. I think he is capable of stepping in a game or two and playing safe football to steal a win/not lose the game.

Actually, yeah, I think he takes a roster spot here. Smart guy who has the skills to go in for an emergency run. He'd be a good observer on the sidelines as well and wouldn't be a threat to Darnold right now. 

If things went crazy, who knows, he might have a bit of that Jake spark in him.

He could put his skills to use here working out 14 years of practice squad eligibility.

If I remember correctly, teams are only allowed something like five tryout players this year.

If two of our five are going to be quarterbacks, our current backups might have reason to be a little nervous.

If you find yourself sitting in the Carolina Panthers QB room, you SHOULD be nervous.

I’m not sure another team has a QB room that from top to bottom could be shuffled at random and be close to the actual opening day roster?

Disagree. Darnold is the clear starter and head and shoulders above anyone else.

Beyond Darnold though, pretty much everyone else is easily replaceable.

I’ll concede that Sam is the starter day 1.  (And) I think he’s going to have success. However, if he doesn’t...  That’s gonna make more than Sam a little nervous.

Why are people so down on Grier, he is a really good QB that just needs to be developed. My predictions.. we will have Darnold, Grier, and PJ as our QBs this year, with Stevens a maybe (he will be snatched up by the Saints if we cut him).

    • Saints - 21 Panthers - 24 The Brees era is finally over. Imo he is a 20-pt advantage in the dome. I think they would have put up 41 on us in the same situation last year.    But Jameis gonna Jameis and I think we get a couple picks, short field, points off turnovers. Their defense is good but the TOs make the difference.    Darnold - Steady again - 24/34 295 yards, 2 TDs; No INTs  Jameis - Throwback Jameis - 39/55, 330 yards, 2 INTs, 2 TD, 5 sacks.    CMC - 140 total yards DJ/Robby - Combine for 200 yards in the air and 2 TDs.    Burns/Reddick - 3.5 sacks.    Horn - 1 INT - balls out to send a message to daddy’s former team.
    • When I see posts that we could have had this guy or why are we not picking up a better this guy at that position, I think... "We can't have everybody we want now". It takes time to build a complete team from scratch. For a new HC, OC and DC to get use to coaching in the NFL. It takes time to clear the dead cap space and bad contracts and build from the draft. It takes time for a young team to build an identity. Ours I believe will be a great defense and a quick hitting offense.  I believe they see 2021 as another step towards that. With Brady and the Bucs dominating and the Chiefs and few other teams at their peak, are we really going win a SB this year? IMO, this year is "hope we can at least win enough games" to come close to a wild card birth and maybe even sneak in. That would build team character and make the fan base start to really believe in the team. I think 2022 is a big step year with 2023 on being, we can compete for a SB run and hopefully win it.  It takes a philosophy and a culture, which Rhule brings. It takes solid depth to overcome injuries, not just having superstars. And it's impossible to have superstars at every position. Darnold may not be the franchise guy but he needs at least another year and a better O-line to really know. We tried to get other QBs and it didn't work. He was a high reward - low risk investment at the time and might turn out pretty good. I said might. Fans are impatient. I would rather build a perennial winner than have the 1 year good, then 2 years bad past (that's what it felt like). But I'm jealous watching the Chiefs and how loud their fans are, or other good teams. The Panthers need to build that consistency to win back the fans and the confidence that they can win most if not almost all games, especially at home. The Chiefs, Seattle, GB, Patriots, etc have home field advantage. We need that. After the music stopped on defense at 20 seconds, the stadium crowd was so low compared to the Georgia fans (2 weeks before) that were more than double the volume with 1/2 the stadium of fans. All this takes time.
