Looking back would you rather have Watson and a vet LT or Icky/Corral

If your goal is winning a super bowl, it's extremely hard to fathom an avenue where the Panthers get there by trading the farm for Watson. Too many holes to patch up. How do you suppose we accomplish that with no high draft picks and no cap space (since Watson will eat it all up)? So for me the answer is easy: Corral and Icky. Even if the chances aren't great, they're greater than the zero that comes with Watson.

I just want to see these kids play. To me the "rebuild" although four years late starts with these two guys.

To keep them off the field would be a travesty and a waste of time. The fan base needs these guys on the field.

Turn the page.

If we finish with one of the first 2 picks we ain’t trading back my guy

If Corral shines, I could see it. If the college season goes like it should, you are talking a 3 first round picks and maybe a day 2 pick or 2 for a top 2 pick. That’s 3-4 impact starters to add to Corral if he shines.

If Corral looks OK like say BC did then an elite level talent QB is a no brainer just like Iky was a no brainer pick at LT. Now if BC played like Slater at LT, would you have traded back? Imagine Iky was the only top LT left and had a lot of interest. I have no idea if Corral even has it in him, but if we have threads on Phil Snow as interim head coach we can conjecture on what if Corral plays like Russel Wilson in limited action (Sam goes 0fer) with a terrible D such that we get a top 2 pick.

I’m a big Corral guy but I just have a hard time seeing him play pretty good football and us still finishing with a top 2 pick. We’ve got a roster that ON PAPER is pretty dang solid minus the QB. We do have an absolutely brutal schedule but I think if we even have average qb play we’re a 7/8 win team. If we had average qb play last year we might have sniffed a wildcard imo.

It was a pretty damned good draft considering the circumstances. We got my top two players notwithstanding that we began day two as simply spectators. Watching the QBs slide was ironically a beautiful thing for me as a Corral fan. That's why I stayed up even as the night was almost ending. I knew we wanted Corral, and we got him on the cheap as far as I'm concerned. I'm still of the opinion that folks don't realize what we have, and the beauty is that we didn't have to grossly overpay for it like we would've had for Watson and a proven vet.

Building from the draft is the better way, especially when you're essentially broken financially and broken-spirited.

Karma is a fickle bitch.  I wish no ill will on anyone, but I foresee Watson getting injured this year.  For whatever reason, when big trades go down, it seems to be inevitable.  

Icky and Corral

Man, I know Watson would have balled in Carolina. I wish it would’ve worked out to where we got him. So many fans would’ve been onboard.

 

Oh well. 

The fact that we would have had to given up so much to get him is what bothered me the most. It would have crippled the team for years and he would have had to be better than peak Cam to overcome that.....which he definitely isn't.
