Panthers Cap Space (This Season) After Moton Deal

And then there's some detractors who won't even concede Darnold>Teddy.   

No surprise there frankw, no surprise there.

Skepticism makes me a detractor? How can I concede that if we have yet to see him play a down for the team? In theory we think he will be an upgrade but it is not a guarantee like most things in life. If you can't handle a basic truth such as that you may have an unpleasant time this season if things hit the fan. I wish you luck.

Some of Frankw's posts:

On thread with a  CMC touchdown:

We got any clips like this from a winning season or no?"

"How many wins did the Carolina Panthers have in his 1k/1k season when he had an ungodly number of touches? Losses are losses my friend there are no silver linings. "

Other quotes:

"I will be here in the fall to collect your tears... "

"But homers gonna homer."

"Take off the shades from time to time."

"There was no rudeness no namecalling so what is your issue?"

----------------------------------------------------------

Dude, you make some good points, you really do.  You  act like we're all unreasonable and you're Mr. Objective and thats fine.  But there's a reason people call you wet blanket, or detractor.   

Its ok to support our quarterback.  Its ok to support the GM and coach.  Its ok to support even our Oline draftees.  

We need critics here, that's great, just don't be surprised if someone calls you a detractor, cause you've done you're share of it.  Some of your most positive posts have been about the aints.

Always looking for the silver lining frankw

I know you're being sarcastic but the fact we have young defensive talent and a young wideout worth talking about big contracts for is a silver lining right there. The dilemma is no immediate plan B at quarterback and nothing on the horizon in a league that now hinges entirely on signal caller quality with many teams jostling for one. You might not want to hear it but an unbiased view dictates it would be wise to have a veteran other than PJ and Grier just looking at the odds of Darnold. Now before anyone chimes in about tanking I have been very much assured coaches and players wouldn't engage in that indirectly or otherwise. Can't create a winning team culture that way right? 🤔

Am I dragging the carcasses of your previous posts into our discussions like this? The opposite argument could be made for your efforts in how you attempt to squash dissent. But I have engaged with you in good faith when you have done the same. If you think my unbiased thoughts about the Panthers competing with the better teams in our division means I have a soft spot for any of them that's amusing. The last couple of years as a Panthers fan have been a big ego check so if my realism is too much for you I'll let you be from here on or try my best to. Enjoy👍

Frank, seeing silver linings.  I'm so proud of you.  I remember a time when you said there were no silver linings.

To early.  Sam may ball, we don't know who will pop up in the draft, where we're drafting, who will seek a trade and Sam may ball.  I know I said that twice.

 Everyones biased dude, you need to get past that.

Hmmm.  I know I'm a minority, but PJ wasn't THAT bad.  Remove his EZ/RZ ints and you might have something there.  I do agree Darnold has an injury history which means our backups are going to get playing time.  I'm cool with upgrading there.

Yeah, cause the teams that tank just do awesome the next couple years.

In my mind, it just doesn't buy you as much as you think it does, especially if the reason you suck is because you can't pick good players.

Throwing the last game of the season, I can understand, but tanking?  Naaah.

Feel free, not because there isn't anything to be found, I'm sure there is,  But you'll have to go back and reread my posts.  I'm actually hoping someone does it.

How come when you present a view its unbiased and objective, but when I do I'm "squashing dissent"?

If you think my unbiased thoughts

Unbiased.  there it is again.

Actually no.  Some parents see  more flaws in their own kids and some just like to cheer them on.  The world needs a little of both.

You're the ying to my yang buddy.  Good thing we joined about the same time.

 Realism, there it is again.

And no its not too much for me.  I rather enjoy it.

Ok, now who's too much for who?

I'm actually more optimistic about PJ than some. But just being better than Will Grier isn't enough. Nothing against Will bc he's a good guy but that's the rub what are ya gonna do. The tank is tempting and great for mindless arguing but it's a pipe dream for fans nothing more. You see what it got Doug Pederson.

I'm not motivated enough today to dig up bones. Perhaps unbiased is a little too unrealistic but what's my perceived bias? I hate the team? Maybe it's ten years of being told we have superman only to see it all fall to crap way too soon and then our hall of fame linebacker calling it quits. I thought we had a bigger window but that was not the case. So moving forward if it is an option of eternal optimism or being perceived as a little negative I'm going to straddle that middle ground until this team starts competing in the division again. If having a team is enough for some people hey I tip my cap but none of us are going to live forever so the least the team can do is stop being a doormat.

That everyone but you is biased.  We all are.  Your take also can come across more negative on the team.   And that's fine.   But celebrating accomplishments does not hinder us  from improving.

No I don't think that.

Tell me about it.

Me too.

That's fine.  I was pretty disillusioned last year, and when the D started to ball, I wondered if this was what Baylor and Temple felt. 

I was disappointed with the oline FA trades and when they traded for Sam I was like WTF are they doing? 

Some people posted on here some reasons Sam could work.  So I dug.  The more I dug, the more I realized that no QB would have good numbers in that situation.  Then I watched tape and saw the flashes.

Darnold was getting a bad wrap here by some vocal posters, particularly by some mods and regular posters, so I decided to join and share my learnings.

Hell no it's not enough. 

But that doesn't mean you don't celebrate the wins, the slick moves or the progress.

We are desperately trying to do that.  Gettleman, Shula, Richardson, RR, Hurney, all gone.

We have a new QB1, Wr's, TEs, OL, CBs, LB, OLB, Edge, and DT's, most of whom are going to see significant playing time.  We are plugging holes but there were just so many.

You can say that our bets  are wrong, but I don't believe they are stupid, and we are aggressively trying to improve. 

Tepper/Rhule and Fit agree with you....we have no intention of being the NFL's doormat.
