I've always considered the third preseason game to be the only that mattered. First, it is the closest to a real game regarding the game planning and effort put forth by the first team, not to mention the first team playing most of the game. Second, it is the last chance our first team has to develop momentum and confidence before the season starts. Winning and success is an attitude that only comes from experiencing it. If our offense has three straight games with a slow start, then you can count on that carrying over into the season. There won't be any momentum built up for any of the offensive starters, and we've all seen the difference in our team when confident with momentum versus on their heels and struggling. This game is our first team's final chance to set the tone for the remainder of the season, and I believe that they will come out with the fire of a regular season game. I wouldn't be surprised to see Cam scramble a little either, to the worry of all others. Hears to a good game and a Panthers' victory!
Corey Brown also took a poor angle in his pursuit of the ball. If he tracks the ball a little better then he is under it to make the catch with both hands. Instead, he tracked too far to his left, and the ball fell awkwardly to his right where he could only extend one hand.
