    Lee Ward - The Punisher
    During Sunday's press conference, Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart called rookie fullback Lee Ward a "Punisher". 
    Ward likes that description. 
    "That's a huge compliment, especially coming from that guy" Ward told me after practice. "He is an absolute monster and I expect huge things from him this year." 
    During Monday's practice, Ward began to showcase why Jonathan Stewart classified him in that unique way. 
    Ward, in charge of protecting his quarterback, stifled linebacker Adarius Glanton for the duration of the play. 

    Glanton appeared not to have taken too kindly to Ward's tenacity and got in a little extra curricular activity, knocking his helmet off after the whistle. I asked Ward if he had lost his helmet and had a busted chin before.
    "It's something that has happened my whole career. I've busted my chin too many times to count at this point. They say the ladies like scars, so I guess it is only a good thing, right?"

    On the very next play, Ward picked up his protection assignment again, this time linebacker stopping Jason Trusnik in his tracks. The result was much the same, namely proper protection and enough time for Derek Anderson to make a good read and throw. 

    Ward does not seem to be too concerned about any ramifications from defensive players not accustomed to being stopped by a rookie. 
    "I just try to get them on the play and do the best I can. I'm not really worried about the extra curricular stuff. The veterans don't appreciate a rookie coming and hitting them in the mouth, but I am trying to make this team just like they are."
    Ward appears to have the right mind set required for any rookie, especially an undrafted one, to make a NFL team. If he can keep impressing like he did today he could very possibly make the Panthers practice squad or even regular roster.

    Frank looks solid.

    Panthers Training Camp Notes and Photos - Day 4
    Day 4 of the Carolina Panthers Training Camp is in the books. With a heat index of 109 in Spartanburg, the Panthers still managed to have a spirited practice that yielded some good things. 
    Thomas Davis was taking a veterans day off. However, he still managed to act as an additional coach of sorts, helping rookie linebacker David Mayo at times. 

    This did not keep Mayo from performing his rookie tasts, such as fetching helmets for the veteran players. 

    The Carolina Panthers coaches were especially energetic and vocal today. This could be due to the return of head coach Ron Rivera. 

    Sean McDermott kept a close eye on his defensive unit and was not shy in pointing out where they were lacking. 

    Dave Gettleman kept a watchful eye over practice, and was joined by aspiring GM but current Panthers safety Roman Harper at times. 

    Ted Ginn continues to impress in camp. When asked today if he was still the fastest guy on the field, he answered in the affirmative. 

    The Panthers offense struggled early today, mainly due to poor offensive line play. Cam Newton scrambled out of the pocket more than once, something Panthers fans have gotten quite used to seeing. Newton was visibly upset for a brief moment, expressing to his offense they would need to pick up their game. 

    This may be redundant, but Kelvin Benjamin continues to make plays. At some point I may stop reporting this, as you can probably just take it as a given. 

    Gamecocks product Damiere Byrd had his best day of camp so far. Damiere is proving himself not only a deep threat that the team desperately needs, but also a weapon on the end arounds. His end around run today was the prettiest of camp so far. 

    Brenton Bersin continues to field second string punts, and guess what.... he looks pretty good. Many people are hard on Bersin for last year's punt return performance. They forget, however, that Bersin had zero punt return reps in practices up until he was asked to field them in a live game. Punt returning is 100% about repetition, without it no player would do well. 

    Michael Oher improved from his lackluster performance yesterday, although he did have help at times. As many have pointed out, if the Panthers can get Oher to just the level of serviceable, it will be an upgrade over last season. 

    Jordan Todman was fighting a stomach bug but still practiced in between trips to the sideline to vomit and hydrate. You have to admire his resolve. Todman is not a lock to make this roster, and he knows every snap counts. 

    Mike Remmers beard. Thats all. 

     
    Today's Climbers: 
    - Damiere Byrd - As stated earlier, his best performance of camp.
    - Cameron Artis-Payne - CAP had the prettiest touchdown scamper of camp so far. He also appears to be improving in pass protection during second team drills. So far, so good for this rookie. 
    - Mario Addison - Addison may be the most improved defensive player on the roster. I am very impressed what he has brought so far. He appears to be well ahead of Kony Ealy at this point. 
    - Lee Ward - Caught a nice ball out in the flat, made some killer blocks in pass protection.

    Again, he held his own afterward for a single series mainly because the Panthers were running bubble screens and other drop offs. No, Oher didn't give up any more sacks or batted down balls. The other guys are correct in that regard. But the reason isn't so clear

    All I reported was exactly what I saw, and it was completely accurate. I spoke to JJ about it today and he largely agrees with me. It was a bad day for Oher. 
    For Ron to admit in the first place that he "made some mistakes" is all you need to know. Ron never says such a thing about a player unless it was pretty bad. 
    That said, he improved today. Hopefully that is the start of an upward trend.

    Oher didn't settle in after a few sacks. The offense moved to quick short passes. 
     
    That said, Oher had an improved day today. Working his way up to average I hope.

    Oher didn't adjust. The Panthers started running plays on offense that got the ball out of Cam's hand quickly. 
    Maybe Oher improves in camp, but as of now he has had a bad start.
