D.Watson are we still interested ?

Recommended Posts

We got Donald, but In theory Watson settles these issues.. and have no more bad will on him then Big Ben had back in the day… Tho society has been alittle more “woke”. I don’t think the league punishes him if he does settle out of court with no police or criminal charge attached to it.. with that said and if the deal is right.. would you push for the trade  and or be okay with Watson starting the 21-22 season for the panthers  ??

He may pay to make this all go away legally but there will always be a dark cloud over him for the rest of his career and who knows how much backlash those of the MeToo movement will cause for whatever team that acquires him.

I am not certain that Tepper would want to deal with that type of "publicity" when he's trying to build the franchise up to something respectable.

It's hard to say. 

I've read that the reason that Buzbee and company have brought up settling is that they perceive problems with the case. That being said, I think that many people are going to be able to overlook this issue, give him an opportunity to resume his career, and keep a mental leash on him at the very least and watch whether or not he's learned lessons and stays out of trouble.

    • I agree, but man this is the last season with him at UNC, if the kid wants to run, let em run.
    • But seriously, we gotta stop running Howell so much. 112 yards is nice, but 15 carries is too much. He's had double digit carries every game so far. I know he said he wanted to run more this season, but honestly 3-4 designed runs for him to keep the D honest is probably the right number. Another 3-4 scrambles. That's 6-8 carries. That feels about right. He's more athletic than most gave him credit for being coming into this season, but he's not Lamar Jackson by any stretch of the imagination. We're running him too much.
    • I agree that ESPN is anti Panthers, but I think the reason has little to do with politics or morality. ESPN like most media companies when covering sports, treats any smaller media market team without a big media star like dog poo. I am so sick of ESPN sucking the dick of the NFC East with wall to wall coverage of their team's practice squads when the entire division has basically been garbage for over a decade, meanwhile if we're not sporting the likes of a Cam Newton, the Panthers get David Newton attempting to do whatever it is that he does every so often, but not so you'd really notice. If you ever really wanna know which teams ESPN gives fug all about, just watch the draft and take note of which teams are drafting when they go to commercial.  Those are the teams they don't care about, one of which is almost always us.
