I think McCants has plenty of potiental, but wasn't there a question about his work ethic in practice? If you're going to be coached by Joe Gibbs or someone like him, you had better do what you're expected to do....in the NFL, you cannot do the bare minimum and expect to make a difference. Maybe McCants felt that once he got into the NFL, everything would be easy going from there...but I think possibly he found out that there is much expected out of the players and not just on the field during a game.

As far as Rod Gardner...I will be very surprised to see him back next year. Pretty much what I expected to happen is going to happen: Trash and Jacobs getting more playing time on offense. I honestly feel the combination of Coles, Trash, and Jacobs gives us our best chance on offense. I wouldn't be surprised if we went after another veteran WR in the offseason....someone who wouldn't be expensive but could still be effective.

I also heard about Muhammed becoming available. Even with all the talk to the contrary about Snyder's typical spending sprees. I can see him finding Muhammed a tantalizing offer even though he obviously would demand to be paid as one of the top 5 receivers in the league. I hope maybe we could trade Gardener for a pick and just develop someone as a receiver.

i dunno about muhammad, hes like 32 or something, thats pretty old for an nfl reciever. he would also want a lot of money, and i think it would be better spent elsewhere. if it was like a 2 year deal or somehing it would be better than a 5 year deal.

I like Muhammed but he is getting old. He had a nice year this year but I don't know about next year. I hope he becomes the first Panther to Retire as a Panther.

Muhammed has already said he's looking for a lucrative deal, I wouldn't want to dish out very much for a WR over 30.

Agreed. We don't need him.

We need a good bargain veteran.

I think Gardner will be gone before McCant's, he has more value right now [which isn't saying much] McCant's may have more of an opportunity once that happen's, I don't see Thrash as more than a 4th and sometimes a 3rd reciever, if Jacob's can step up and be a #2 than that would slot Thrash at 3 but I do believe we need a physical reciever at the #1 or 2 slot who can take the ball away from the defender's, Muhammad is exactly that, but I agree with the rest I wouldn't give him the megabuck's contract to get him.

The thing I don't understand is why Rod Gardner got a free pass to start every week when there were plenty of uninspired performances, dropped balls, and one-catch or non-factor games. Why didn't any other receiver get a chance to start and get extended playing time if Gardner was in a slump?

Essentially, McCants will be shown the door for doing in practice what Rod Gardner did for much of the season during actual games. What proof do we have, by the way, that McCants was actually slacking off during practice? I mean, that seems to be the general consensus at the Warpath. But does anybody really have evidence to back up this claim? Were there actual reports from newspapers that I missed?

They know better about McCants than me, but Man, I sure hope he doesn't turn out to be another Frank Wycheck.
