Re: Report: Hackett Agrees to Terms with Panthers

Guess we better start rubbing our hands and preparing for the draft. Cause we're not getting squat during FA.

Has anyone besides Brunell actually left the team, btw?

Re: Report: Hackett Agrees to Terms with Panthers

Im really upset with us not signing him. I feel that he is more talented than all of our recievers. In his last season, he was on pace to have 1024 yards and 8 td's if he played every game, while moss was on pace to get 923 and 3 tds and randle el was on pace to get 777 yds and only 1 td. Randle El and Moss both are getting 5 mil a year with 10 mil signing bonuses. Hacket got a deal where he is getting 2.25 mil a year. We also cleared a bunch of space to sign a free agent this year, we should have commited to signing one because otherwise we shot ourselves in the foot by pushing all that money back and having a bunch of empty cap space. Once Lloyd is cut, we will have 10.2 mil in space to get 3 players signed (including the 2 players from the rule of 51). We could have and should have bought Hackett because he would cost less than our receivers, and has better numbers. Not to mention we made the cap space for it.

On pace is a term that is thrown around to often, if he had played in those games whose to say that he would have gotten yards or TDs. Whos to say that Moss wasnt going to blow up in a game that he didnt play in? The term "on pace" should be stricked from the english language.

All right, then ignore the on pace thing. Hackett had 4 TD's in 7 games played (including the playoff game) which is more than our leading wide reciever and in under half the amount of games played (Moss had 3 in 15 games played including the playoff game)

Wasn't there a season where Keyshawn had 102 catches but only 1 TD? Just because he had some touchdowns doesnt mean he would come in here and just beasting on everyone.

ESPN - Panthers agree to two-year deal with WR Hackett - NFL
They better be prepared to bring in a stellar draft class.

First of all, TD's is the most important recieving stat, I don't care how many field goals a reciever sets up, a TD is more important. Second of all, TD's isnt his only stat where he is good. Over 7 games played (including the playoff game) he had 38 receptions (that's 5.5 receptions per game which is under 1 reception per game less than Keyshawns 102 catches) he also had 485 yards over 7 games played. That is averaging 70 yards per game. Santana Moss had 67 receptions over 15 games played (including the playoff game). That is 4.5 receptions per game, which is a larger difference from Hackett than Hackett was from Johnson. Moss had 876 yards over 15 games played which is 58 yards per game. That is 12 yards less than Hackett.

I don't see us getting a game changer by trade or UFA. Plus, a 1st round WR would be the 3rd time since Monk and, of course, the 3rd time's a charm (Westbrook, Gardner) (D. Howard doesn't count he was KR - Yeah! that's the ticket!).

Again, generally, I agree with your sentiment. But, I think it's time to take another shot. If we do our homework, get a little lucky, we could be set for a long time. If not, if it gives us something to bitch about.
great post Joe. I think what really bolsters your argument is that Hackett is no sure thing due to his injury history. I think carolina got him for near a song, but I also think maybe the Danny & Vinny used this to send a message to the rest of the league; don't look for the big deals in DC anymore!

I agree w/you totally about drafting a reciever now, so he's ready to make big plays next year & after. IF the guy is good, he can catch 30 balls as a rook then take off after that. 30 catches is good for a #4 wr. I'm not saying we need to draft a wr w/our #1, but if they feel the best player of need is a wr then go ahead. It appears to be a deep class.

I'd just be really happy to see a guy start his career here & become a star, had enough of the trades & fa signings.

Well, the antithesis to this would be the case of the 2007 Kansas City Chiefs. They took a receiver in the 1st round, and absolutely hit on him, taking the guy (Dwayne Bowe) who I said would be the best receiver in the 2007 draft class the week before the draft.

But they were an aging team with massive needs elsewhere, and their offensive line fell apart, and when it did, there was no one waiting in the wings to take advantage of the mess they had created.

So now, the Chiefs have to temper their expectations with Bowe playing on an offense with no QB, no OL, and a RB with serious questions to answer about his future (if he's the next Bettis/Martin, or if he's another Shaun Alexander).

While this is an area that the team (Redskins) will have to address a year or two down the road, we haven't made enough selections over the past few years to warrant being able to spend a high pick on a WR. We still need DL, OL, and a CB as soon as possible.

Additionally, this draft really doesn't have anything by way of can't miss prospect at WR.

But I do think you make a great point, and that's if you want to have a great player at any given position in 2009 or 2010, the most cost effective way is to draft him right now in 2008. I couldn't agree more with that point. Draft the guy a few years before you have to count on him.

Fortunately for us, I see 2011 as the first year that we would need to count on another receiver, and we have a lot of time before then to address other needs for '09 and '10

Re: Report: Hackett Agrees to Terms with Panthers

I also don't see the team taking a WR in the first when we just extended both Moss and ARE this offseason. Not in the first, but potentially later in the draft, I could see them going there.

It was 106 catches btw, and i don't care how much yardage or how many catches per game he had, because those stats don't mean anything, if he had played 16 games who knows how good or bad he would have been, and are you saying that DJ Hackett is better than Santana, because it sure looks like you were, there is no comparison, Santana is better and always will be better than DJ Hackett.

Seeing that Seattle was a pass first team this season and with all the injuries to their recieving core I am not suprised he got those yards at all.
