Panthers Plan to Stay With Cam

Recommended Posts

This could have some big implications if the Panthers are off the table for the QB search. Yes, they could still draft a QB to groom for the future; but this news could mean they are not in the market for a free agent QB.

I always felt that was the smart thing to do. He finally took the time he needed to heal and they must have gotten a vote of confidence from their doctors before making this decision, IMO.

 

In years past, he kept playing through injury and it didn't truly help anyone.

Matt Rhule has reportedly been happy with his maturity and commitment to get healthy, and for a rookie HC, Cam should be the better option as opposed to teaching a newly drafted QB.

Another possible move up target. 

That's what I was thinking to be honest.

I really liked Cam talking at the NFL Honors stuff during the SB week. He's really shaping up as this wise, veteran guy. The question will be how his talent still stands. I'm actually rooting for the guy to make a comeback.

I think they did last year with Grier

They still could draft the future QB but if they are sticking with Cam I would bet they will draft defense or a WR.  If we want to stay ahead of some teams that would be a good trade up spot.

Good, he's a broken QB and the Panthers will stay in mediocrity for a while, just like Dallas.

The Panthers are aiming at Trevor Lawrence next year. Matt Rhule is an expert in rebuilding...

Very well could be.

 

I think an under the radar QB that is going to shoot up draft lists next year is Dylan McCaffrey at Michigan (yes I'm biased, I'm a Michigan fan) but when you look at the the McCaffrey family, you just cannot count them out.  The biggest question will be, can he stay healthy, but if he does I think he will become a 1st round QB.

Has he played yet? How has he looked? 

 

I heard a new QB name for next year's draft the other day by Daniel Jeremiah.

 

North Dakota State QB Trey Lance

Yep that's not a typo... he threw for 28 TDs and ZERO INTs this year. He's 6'3" 220 and he's a dual threat QB. Passed for 2800 yards(9.7YPA) and rushed for 1100 yards. I have not watched game tape of him yet, just highlights, so I can't really say how much I buy his hype, but definitely looks intriguing.

He has played very sparingly.  He was going to get some more playing time and then got injured.  He's a bit inaccurate, but seems to have a strong arm, good runner.  I just think he will shine this year, nothing in his game to date, indicates 1st round talent.

 

Trey Lance looks interesting.

    • A lot of the reason why Peyton only has 1 ring is because he couldn't beat the Pats early in his career (2003/2004). Also sometimes teams have bad luck, in 2009 we were clearly the best team but couldn't recover an onsides kick. Many great players have won 0 SB's. Dan Marino never won one. If someone would've told you Marino would've played 16 seasons and never won a SB, nobody would believe that. Jim Kelly and the Bills lost 4 straight SB's. Sometimes circumstance like a missed FG or an onsides kick, dropped pass in a SB can screw everything up. 
    • To make it short. My point and question is this. Who is Peyton Manning, and why does he have 1 ring in Indy. From the onset, if someone told you that by drafting PM you would be guaranteed to win 1 ring, is that good or bad. BTW Eli has 2 with same team. We we all know that Eli is good but he ain't the fk Sheriff (ask Jon Gruden).   If someone told you that PM won 1 ring in 10+ years with Indy, "most" would question why only 1 with Indy. And may even say that that's a fail.  
    • Since the 2000 season we are tied for the 3rd most wins in the NFL with the Packers (2000-2019/20 seasons). Only the Pats and Steelers have more wins in that time frame. Regarding SB championships you make it sound like a team winning 2 SB's is miles better than winning 1. 2-1 is a slight margin. Only the Patriots who have won 6 have a huge margin over all teams. Ravens and Giants have won 2 SB's since 2000 but we have more wins. Steelers have 2 as well and more wins so they deserve being ranked the 2nd best franchise since the 2000's. Colts along with the Packers have only won 1 and have the same amount of wins. Like I said 2-1 is a slight margin in championships won. 6-1 is a big margin like the Pats have but the Pats have the upper hand on every team since the 2000's. It really doesn't bother me. Had we recovered a simple onsides kick vs the Saints, we would've had 2 but we didn't, it would've never came down to Peyton's INT trying to rally us again putting everything on him again, crap happens.     Since 2000 (20 seasons) the best franchises have been IMO: 1. Patriots (*belongs here though because of the cheating they have done)   2. Steelers   3. Packers - same amount of wins as the Colts and a SB win like the Colts.   Tied for 3rd. Colts - I put us over the Ravens and Giants who did win 2 SB's simply because we have many more wins and have made the playoffs a lot more than the Giants did. Winning the 1 SB combined with that puts us tied for 3rd. The Seahawks and Broncos have won 1 SB too but we have more wins than those teams since 2000 as well. Without Regular Season wins you don't even make the playoffs, the Regular Season is very important. If someone wants to say we underachieved regarding winning SB's, I can buy that but It is what it is.  JMO
    • You said nothing wrong at all. There's always going to be people who don't agree with you then try to attack instead of communicate. 
    • No worries here. That was actually how I interpreted what you said...but I can understand how others might have interpreted it differently.
