Yep. He doesn't want to come here and Stafford didn't want to come here.

Two elite QB's that are avoiding this place. No Bueno.

I believe this means moving forward we are a draft only QB option.

Bingo. I've been saying it for awhile. Good veteran QBs with other options are gonna choose another option. We're basically the late stage Al Davis Raiders at this point. The only "high level" vets we're going to get are going to have to be passed their prime with limited options and we're still going to have to overpay to the point of comedy.

But Miami didn't want him unless there was some clarity about his situation. So does that mean he's just not going to be traded? 

I think he settles and Carolina doesn't want to be caught with the hand in the bad look cookie jar.

I thought he had agreed to waive his no trade clause for Miami and us. Guess that was wrong or he changed his mind

He had. Them this season kicked off and it became very clear that this organization is a poo show right now. The OL is trash, the overall offense is entirely broken, and Rhule is making comments indicating that the OC's job might be in jeopardy. I can't blame any QB for looking at this situation and opting out. We might be the worst situation in the entire league for a QB to walk into right now. Well, except for the Bears. So #31.

Florida has no state income tax.

Sales tax and such is higher, but yeah...

So he would save quite a bit of cash if he plays out a contract or two in Miami versus Carolina? Could be part of the equation for Watson.

    • I personally think they should have moved Pride to Safety.  Plays well in soft zone coverage (facing the QB, in other words) and he has some speed and size.  Oh well.
    • well, he needs more than that.  He needs playcalling.   You can have a decent OL and talent....but if you are running a predictable and unimaginative O then your talent basically all gets downgraded.  McAdoo still has some legit redflags.  While Eli did have 2 great statistical seasons while he was OC,  McAdoo's head coaching tenure was defined by predictable and very unimaginative offense.   So there still are some question marks on if Eli (a SuperBowl/Pro Bowl ) QB simply took advatnage of OBJ being an intital problem for folks to cover and it not being create actual playcalling and scheme.   And it also makes me nervous the league almost deemed him unemployable until we gave him this OC job.  Heck, if Matt Rhule said no thanks to Ben twice being his QB coach.....then suddently his is good enough to be OC. 
    • Schuyler Callihan chimed in with a rookie Camp observation as well... They really didn't throw the ball downfield much with Corral over the weekend. It was a lot of underneath stuff and some play-action that had him rolling to both sides. When he did stand firm in the pocket, he looked comfortable. The five and seven step drops are something that will take some time for him to get used to, but this offense will primarily run out of the gun anyway. On tape, Corral had one of the quickest releases I've seen. In person, it looked even quicker. It's a natural, effortless motion that is something I haven't seen before. He was very accurate with the ball and on the few shots they did take downfield, he put it right on the money.  Link Not sure about the shotgun thing. I don't remember enough about McAdoo's offense to know if that's true. Callihan did also have this to say about first round pick Ikem Ekwonu's camp... Ekwonu already looks the part. It's easy to see why everyone in the Panthers' building calls him a tone-setter. There were a couple of times that he nearly ran the guy (another lineman) holding the pad into the ground. He's just a massive human being who has tremendous strength. He'll be starting at left tackle from day one.
