Panthers Blew the Offseason?


Recommended Posts

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2942900-4-nfl-teams-that-blew-the-2021-offseason

"The Carolina Panthers appeared to have everything going for them this offseason: plenty of cap space, a stable stopgap veteran quarterback, a premium draft pick to use toward the long-term future under center and offensive coordinator Joe Brady, the architect of Joe Burrow's historic run at LSU. 

Instead, Carolina said "no thanks" to a quarterback and the offensive line with the eighth overall selection, traded for a failed first-rounder (Sam Darnold) and dealt its veteran stopgap (Teddy Bridgewater)

The keys to the offense now belong to a career 59.8 percent passer with a 45-39 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Nobody would argue the New York Jets were a stable developmental environment for the 2018 third overall pick, so maybe the Panthers can help him turn his career around. But his completion rate is a major red flag. 

Darnold secured, the Panthers passed on a quarterback in the first round, taking cornerback Jaycee Horn at No. 8. They then traded down twice in the second round and ultimately missed out on offensive line talent that could've helped fix a unit that allowed 36 sacks last year. 

Sprinkle in the fact that Carolina also lost a weapon like Curtis Samuel, and the organization didn't exactly do enough to create an encouraging developmental situation for Darnold. It could hurt the Panthers immediately and far into the future."

I remember when those were decent numbers for a starting NFL QB.

Random year. The rules changes have distorted the game. 

  I grew up in Pittsburgh in the 1970s. It’s definitely not the same. Then 1978. And they changed the rules in 2003 as well. And being able to just throw the ball away for the QB should get more attention as a factor.

I think its the Bleacher Report, so it automatically goes in the "LOL" category.

Sounds like the writer doesn't pay attention past the first round...?

When i saw this was an article that appeared in the "Bleacher Report" I stopped reading.

By the time I finished the blurb my head had cocked so far to one side I looked like a confused dog.  Then I saw the the link and relief washed over me.

Now why don't you share with the gang what your bitch with Bleacher Report is, I see more facts here than not.  We may have stumbled on an acorn at the bottom of the 2nd round but still missed out on solid OL and S picks that were REAL NEEDS thanks to our new GMs lack of experience drafting high. What's said all makes perfect sense.
