Lookin' crowded out on that ledge, fellas. Y'all should be patient - it's always darkest just before the dawn. Though I hear it can get pretty dark in the middle of a forest fire, too., soot en sech.

Tight End? We need a damn receiver! Or actually receivers. You know, since we got rid of the best one we had.

Mike McNeill, a backup tight end in St. Louis, signed a two-year deal with the Panthers on Friday. McNeill, 26, spent parts of the past three seasons with the Rams, catching five passes for 36 yards in 28 games. He made one start.
McNeill’s signing could signal the end of blocking tight end Ben Hartsock’s career in Carolina. The 33-year-old Hartsock is an unrestricted free agent.

Looks like we got somebody younger and/or cheaper.

The article also says we're looking at Ryan Clark (Steelers) and Roman Harper (saints) at S.

What the hell has Hakeem Nicks done? Answer: Nothing. I'd take Jones before him no doubt. Let everybody pay retail for free agent divas and we'll do work in the draft. Gettleman is getting this team out of Hurney's mess. It's all good. Fact: Panthers will draft a nasty receiver.

That's good if we get a nasty receiver but who will block for Cam?

If he hadn't beaten us twice, including by six thousand points in Atlanta, there wouldn't be nearly the same attitude about Newton on this board.

Anyone who thinks LaFell is a #1 clearly knows very little about football and should probably get their eyes and brain checked out. He's AT BEST a mid level #2...Panthers haven't had 2 decent WRs since Moose and yet again it appears as though they'll start next year without giving the franchise QB adequet weapons.

I have never understood anyone that like LaFell. I always viewed him as Low #2 or a good #3 WR.

Who is claiming LaFell as a #1 WR?

Nail meet hammer from The Charlotte Observer this morning:

Quote:
What does it tell you that Baltimore, New England, San Diego, Seattle and Washington all showed serious interest in an unemployed man in the first 24 hours after he became unemployed? It tells me -- once again -- that Panther general manager Dave Gettleman made a major mistake by firing Steve Smith and that other teams were standing in line trying to take advantage of it. This was Gettleman's gaffe, and it will haunt him unless the Panthers go 12-4 again.

Which Gettleman didnt think he was worth.

Compare that to the Baltimore Ravens, who have him on a 3 year deal for something like 11.5 million. So yeah. The market agreed. Smith wasnt worth keeping at 7 million a year.

It was strictly a business arrangement. Not a gaffe.

^ GM did not even attempt to offer to restructure or offer Smitty to take a paycut, so how can it be over money when there was no offer to change money within the contract. It was personal Riverboat Ron said he didn't like the way this was handled.

You failed to mention that the Panthers have to pay $3 million to Smith this year whether they kept him or not. So it would have only cost $4 million additional this season to keep him...which is less then what Baltimore paid him.

Again, this wasn't about money.

Roman Harper.

2 yrs 4.5 w/ 1.5 guaranteed.

Awful. He sucks and is past his prime. Cam torched the Saints when Vacaro got hurt and Harper came in.

Guess we'll see if he can step it up and contribute this season. Don't be surprised if Panther fans boo him. Harper is pretty hated in chlt.
