Please take this with a grain of salt...I was not impressed with Shaq today. I know he is a little behind the curve because of the idiotic quarter system rule that held him out of OTAs. With that said I saw a lot of looking around. A lot. Whenever the LBs lined up for drills he continuously was looking over at Glanton to make sure he was doing things right. It just didn't feel natural to me. Maybe he's just learning and trying to do things right but it looked to me as if he was mirroring what everyone else was doing instead of just doing the drill naturally. Speaking of Glanton, I was sure it was going to be him, Luke, and TD lining up with the 1st string. But he wasn't, AJ Klien got 1st string reps instead on the weak side. Funchess...2 blatant drops, now that surprised me. It's easy to point out the mistakes but the 3 guys I was impressed by were Byrd on kickoff returns and Ward during running back drills and Artis-Payne did really when his number was called. Again, it's early and they're rookies so let's see how the rest of training camp goes and some presason games.
Pass blocking I give him a passing grade. Hands to the face will bend anyone backwards. It didn't look like Oher gave any ground to the inside but kept him on his left shoulder so the QB could step up.
Eh, if it's Panthers related and has some meat to it and it's interesting don't worry about the length. I think this was a good post and I might have missed it in the blog section. It also gets people debating about the team which isn't a bad thing when coming to position battles. Good job.
I hear Seattle is going to fall in the Pacific because of an impending super earthquake, so there's that. Degrees are overrated depending on what path you want to take. I have 3 of them and my drop out high school buddies make tons more money than I do because they learned a trade and now own their own businesses. If I had it to do over again I would never work "for" another person again. Find a job you're interested in, find roommates to share the rent, and learn learn learn whatever it is you decide to do and become an expert at it, start your own business, kick ass, move out and buy your own place, put your former employer out of business, sell your business, retire at 35.
Caveat to earning a 4-year degree...some jobs require it, I really want my medical doctors to have degrees.
