Rebuilding Year

Gettleman has to feel like a idiot right now. Pilares is our main target, if that tells you how bad our receiving core is. The four main receivers Smith, Ginn, Lafell, and Hixon are gone. Free agents are falling off the board fast, and I don't see one left that could save the offense.Even if we get a Kelvin Benjamin in the draft he's going to be on his own and have no help at all.

Rookies take time to develop and learn the system that's why Gettleman better not bank on drafting guys. Even if we manage to get a Sidney Rice caliber receiver its not going to do much for you. My theory is that its hard for linemen and skill players to make a impact right away because it takes time to learn the system and get the concepts. Its important the QB has chemistry with his linemen and receivers and that's not going to happen in just one year folks. Its really going to be tough now that Cam isn't going to be back until August practically.

Cam's going to have to rehab while kindle a relationship with all the new receivers this summer and that's going to be a task. Defense on the other hand I'm not worried about. Defensive players play alone and can be plugged right in to the mix. They aren't like receivers who have to learn a new system. Look at Mike Mitchell for instance he came in and made a impact right away. With the signing of Harper we have a key component to our secondary and I'm confident we will get a quality CB.

Cam Newton the captain of the offense is most likely going to miss all off-season activities. But if you had Steve Smith who is a great mentor and captain, the new receivers probably wouldn't miss a beat. And Cam would still have his sidekick and number one target. As of now it looks like a rebuilding year I'll be shocked if we make it to the playoffs.

This is a huge step back and right now I have no earthly idea what Gettleman is doing. I know people keep bringing up this dead money crap well I don't care what you say, this is Gettleman's fault that's his job to manage financial issues like this. The offense is not looking good, Gettleman better do something fast. Make a trade or make some free agent acquisitions. We went from a team that was a Super Bowl contender to the bottom of the NFC South. Ice up Panthers fans because this could be a long season.
