We lose that game and i rather we don't go to playoffs.

Ummmmmm, that's because we won't go with a loss. I think we pull this out with a great storyline.

Maybe he's the next Kurt Warner I don't know, but there really was no decision with regard to last night's game.
The thing is even if he had played really well, there was still an argument to be made for making a statement about this whole culture change we keep hearing about.
And I hear the argument for giving your team the best chance vs establishing culture.

But there is a benefit/risk balance to be found in this decision IMO. And if there was any indication during the week that this was the kind of performance he could put out, then the balance shifts towards make a culture statement, because anyway he's not giving us that big of an upside right now.

Re: Panthers Postgame sadness

There's a video by a poster named "joeken24" on Extremeskins, and Heinicke wasn't exactly seeing "soft coverage" as some are saying.

Just scroll down a bit and y'all will see the video.

Re: Panthers Postgame sadness

Chase Young finished Sunday's game with a 93.7 overall grade which is the highest grade of his career.

5 total pressures, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble, 3 defensive stops. DROY.

Also Heineke had a 82 Grade.

Re: Panthers Postgame sadness

Taylor Heineke is not the answer but he's the best non-Alex option we have to finish this season. Hopefully Alex can play Sunday but I wouldn't bank on it.

If Smith can’t play Sunday, is his career over? You would assume if they lose it has to be

Rivera seems to have an affinity for Alex. Going to be interesting on how that plays out. I imagine Alex will try to play 1 more year, but that's just a guess. I think we will keep him and Allen/Heinicke and trade for/draft QB. Although if we're paying Alex don't think we'd also be able to pay another veteran. More likely we're drafting our next QB.

Heinicke's challenge in the NFL has never been about his arm, reading defenses, or ability to make good decisions on the field. Rather, his small stature has made him injury-prone when he takes a hit, which with his scrambling ability is going to happen often.

Re: Panthers Postgame sadness

Best scenario (no DH is gone), AS is recovered enough to beat the Eagles and play the 1st (and honestly I expect only playoff game), then realises he's done what he set out to do when he started his road back and retire 'on his terms'. We then have the ability to bring in an FA who can play 1-2 years saving us from reaching in the draft or suffering a monster trade to get our guy. We draft a good prospect outside the 1st round who turns out to be Cousins+.

Bad scenario, AS holds on for another year, maybe backing up a draft pick that proves another lost cause and we're drafting QB yet again in 2022. Possible but if I'm RR I'm having a serious conversation with Alex about retiring, and maybe taking a coaching role instead of playing out his contract.

Worst scenario we give up most of our draft to pick higher and get another bust with no talent around him. I don't see this scenario happening with RR.

Any idea who the veteran QB FA's are? Wouldn't mind that route but that's a tough or very expensive way to find a starter.

I'd entertain Fitz if he actually leaves Miami. Bring back Kyle Allen maybe if we can't land a more solid interim starter. Not many on that list interest me much.

Good scenario if he's affordable (I doubt he will be and I reckon the Lions will retain him for at least 1 more year); get Stafford in a trade.

Re: Panthers Postgame sadness

For anyone interested, here are some highlights of Heinicke in college. I am not going to pollute this forum with any more, but thought some might be curious of his background.

Darby was targeted 5 times yesterday
He allowed 1 catch for 3 yards

Fuller 4 targets - 2 Receptions -1 yard.

Big props to these CBs, they have really stepped it up this yr.

Keep Darby
