Backups

I just read on Pro football weekly that Keydrick Vincent has not been playing well.  I don't disagree with that.  They also mention Bernadeau is his back up but not ready to play yet, he is a long term project.  I am sick and tired of hearing the panthers have referred to  a back up as a long term project.  Jarrett not ready yet, Bernadeau not ready yet Matt Moore not ready yet.  That is BS.  They will never get ready if the never play.  Indy drafts Garcon and he is quickly becoming a star.  Steve Smith (NYG) wasn't as good as Jarret at USC but he has been playing since his rookie year.  He is becoming a start and this season so far is more productive than the real Steve Smith.  Our coaches should have everyone ready to play WTF are the coaches and players getting paid for.  I'm very pissed.

Re: Backups

Hook I couldnt agree with you more.

I mean the two stars of the preseason were Moore and Goodson and neither have been used at all. I would prefer to see the deep go routes go to Moore instead of Moose and how can you not find a way to use Goodson, I mean Smitty and Goodson lined up on the same side - if nothing else to pull coverage away from Smitty.

But the Panthers have never been good at developing talent, if they cant play on their own they aint getting coached up.

Re: Backups

our coach has a philosophy,that a starter is a guy who gets 90% of the snaps,regardless if their productive or not,and these coaches have a history of holding on to these project guys far too long,the only thing that puzzles me about these late round guys are whether or not they were never that talented to begin with or whether they were never allowed to developdue to the lack of playing time.

Re: Backups

If what you guys are saying is true then JD, Brayton, Lewis, all the drafted players that are starters from us now and others would not have been successful here at all.  We have taken plenty of others teams rejects and former first rounder (Lewis, Brayton) and turn them into solid consistent starters.  And we have a lot of guys with talent but not consistent talent which kept guys like Marshall, Williams, and Jarrett off the field.  WHen the are ready they let them play and they show out like in Williams' case.  I think they are pretty good at developing talent both drafted and brought in with an emphasis on OL talent.

Re: Backups

Thats why a smart team would add veteran players through FREE AGENCY not neccesarily Impact players but veteran players just to fill in wherever there is a need for some solid depth. Building thru the draft is great but you need to take into consideration that those players are projects not quality depth.

Just wait for Duke 'Road Grader' Robinson to develop...
