J.P.P now a viable option?

Hell, I don't want older vets. I'd bet that the younger ones will provide a much better value. 

Me either.  It is not like JPP or equivalent is going to be the guy that, at the end of the year we say "wow, he sure pushed us over the top!"

This team has to prove it can crawl before it walks, let alone runs.  I'm not in favor of guys who are far enough down their career that they might get us to crawl or even walk, but then won't be around for a shot at running.  It would be different if we were a borderline playoff team last year and acquired some guys who had us realistically believing 11-12 wins was in the cards, and another vet could elevate that a game or two more. 

That is not where we are at.

Someone better be an option or this defense will be giving up 300 ypg on the ground.

Our run defense was decent last year.  Our ypc allowed was in the top half of the league.  And I think it will be better this year.  Perhaps not great, but better due to more experience and hopefully a better secondary that will allow the front seven to focus on stopping the run.

Odd that you say that, but I was wondering why the Panthers didn’t reach back out to Bouye with all the injuries that we’ve recently had at the CB position. Guy knows our team, how we operate, and had a decent year last year…. yet, the Panthers keep bringing in random ass kids from Pembroke and Appy.

Hey! Tae Hayes was one of the best corners in the USFL in Spring. Is he undersized? Yes. But who else was undersized and came from the USFL to the Panthers? Hint: he's now in the Hall of Fame.

Suck it.

So now Hayes is Sam Mills… good God.

Was Sam Mills Sam Mills before he became Sam Mills? Obviously not.

The point is that you never know what someone is going to be and Hayes had an interception in his first practice running with the ones I believe. 

He was solid at App as well which is slowly becoming a DBU of sorts at the G5 level, seeing several guys get to the league and bounce around a bit. Obviously it's less than what P5's put out but for a school still semi transitioning from FCS, it's not bad.

Let’s wait until he plays a few preseason games before drawing comparisons to HOF’ers.

The Panthers are Hayes’ fifth team and he’s yet to break into the league, we might need to pump the breaks a bit.

We had 11 draft picks in 2021 and most made the team. We had a ton of 2020 rookies make the team. We had a shell of a team going into 2020, so of course we were among the youngest teams.

This discussion started with the laughable assertion that Rhule doesn’t like vets because he tried to get rid of JJ. Really? A long snapper is surely the position where age matters, I mean the wear and tear on LSs is worse than RBs.

C’mon, there’s countless other threads where Rhule has been labeled as a Rivera clone who doesn’t start rookies. So which is it, he likes vets over rookies or he likes rookies over vets?

All this hate for Rhule and blaming him for everything including the recession, has almost made me root for the guy.

Matt rhule pulled cmc’s hamstring.
