Well, there's your problem. You're trying to think. Horn has talent, but it's still way too early to crown him when he's only played 3, count them 1 2 3, 3, games.

I'm not crowning him anything. 

I'm acknowledging his play in those games puts in the top of the league. Can you admit that, or are you going to continue taking the stupid route, and keep this personal.

Is it really beating a dead horse if it is our weakest unit and could very well hinder our goal of a winning season or playoffs? You perceive fans refusing to bury their heads in the sand over our roster deficiencies as an insult and that's just very odd.

No one is burying their heads in the sand frankw.  That is all in your mind.

these are the same people who pushed trading the team for Watson and made comments about every single pickup that wasn't an All Pro QB. They don't see the holes in their logic.

NFL fans wanting an all pro quarterback and critiquing the decisions of the team? How unheard of.

Horn didn't look bad, but wasn't a world beater by any stretch of the imagination. The three games he played were against two rookies making their first starts and a guy that was considered a reclamation project at best. All three were under heavy pressure and didn't have a lot of time to go through their progressions to look his way much. When thrown his way, he's had one PD(tied for 128th amongst active players) and been in on five tackles. Oh yeah, he's had a flag tossed against him and jumped in the way of a teammate to get the gimme INT. Not bad, shows promise, but still just a talented rookie starting his career.

If you want to say he is the best corner the Panthers have, then that is more an indictment that the others suck at their jobs than him being a lockdown corner. Which, is why he was drafted.

Just as its too early to declare the rookie linemen who were drafted a success.  

Never claimed anyone was a success yet. Early returns on Slater show he is promising just like Horn. Early returns on Christenson in the little game time he got weren't as good. Hopefully, he plays better if he gets to play this week.

Goodbye.

The same person who has been pounding the table about how our olinemen aren't as bad as they seem thinks Slater's quality play so far is a mirage. You cannot reason with that level of delusion.

You are the one posting things that don't exist, that only exist in your mind.  That is a delusion.

When the line plays poorly, I say that.  

The reality is that you don't admit when the line plays well because it threatens your worldview.
