    oh boy another big NO name that weve wasted money on how exciting for us panthers fans, good job panthers way to be aggressive this offsesason…Pathic

    it doesnt matter if its a big name or not… its who our team signs. it not about they name its about how they work together as a team. anyone who is a big name because they worked together as a team and got the job done. just like when tom brady and dr dreadlocks broke all of the records last season. it wasnt just them it was the fact that they worked as a team.. 3rd and 4th string recievers doing their jobs and the o-line doing what they are paid to do. im going to laugh when everyone keeps takling crap on our signs and then we win the superbowl… lol

  • young20

    well its certaintly doesnt help our cause to win a super bowl when other teams all around us are singning good players to improve there teams and were not i think it was quiet obvilus last year that the team needs improvement and realying on the rookies you draft is the way to win. Im as big of a panthers fan as the next guy but signing a speacil teams player for 4million dollars inst goin to help our.

  • Travis Sauermilch

    i know it sounds that way but i think he was mainly speical teams but more of a back up. last year was a fluke. if jake didnt get injured we would have made it to the play off for sure. and when you sign people its just testing them out. some times you win sometimes you lose. lets just hope we win this year

  • Mike Houston

    Last year was not a fluke. Before Jake went out, they weren’t doing to great against quality teams. Also, the Panthers are signing longtime backups to fill roles that should be filled by a starter. They’ve gotten rid of the more experienced lineman, and now Jordan Gross is the old guy. When they had a good running game, the Panthers had lineman who had real game experience. Longtime backups only know how to be one thing, backups. The Panthers need to stop being cheap and dig into those deep pockets of theirs’. If not free agency, then the draft. Hopefully they won’t trade down to avoid spending

  • Walker

    We were 2-1 when Jake went down, and he had 8 touchdowns to his 1 interception, and the second highest passer rating in the league. He was playing great.

  • Mike Houston

    Jake went down in the third game. They were barely beating the Falcons. Like I said, against quality teams, he did nothing. Hell, the lost that we had came from the Texans. The wins came against the Rams and Falcons. Neither team had six wins, and both are in the top ten of the draft.

  • Walker

    Jake never got the opportunity to play against any quality teams. And, if you remember correctly, it wasn’t Jake that lost us the Houston game, it was our defense.

  • Mike Houston

    The offense played terribly as well. There was bad blocking, fumbling, dropped passes, and under thrown passes. That lost was a team effort. I remember to vividly, I was there. Also, the past few seasons, Jake hasn’t played good against quality teams. Hopefully, he doesn’t have that extreme case of tunnel vision this season.
