What/Who will you be watching for on Friday night?

This Friday, August 8th, our Carolina Panthers take on the Buffalo Bills live from Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina at 7:30pm. Football is upon us!

 

 

 

I will be watching our offensive tackles, particularly Bell and Chandler, closer than anyone else. Can they hold up and hold their own against the formidable defensive front in Buffalo?

 

How much does Cam play? Are there any obvious signs his ankle is bothering him or does he seem like his usual self? Does he ever take off and run?

 

How often do we run a two-tight end set? Cam benefitted greatly from his his rookie year. Can Dickson and Williams shoulder the load of a second pass-catching tight end?

 

Does Kelvin live up to the hype he has been generating in training camp? Outside of Cotchery, Avant, and Benjamin, who steps up and takes another step towards earning a roster spot. I'm looking at you Bersin.

 

Do Star/Short look to have taken the next step as a professional? If those two have improved significantly, this defense should be even better than last years.

 

Who shines in the secondary? Is Benwikere primed for a solid season for us? Has Melvin White continued to develop? Can we rely on Lester to step-in and contribute? Who impresses the most: Norman, Thomas, Byndom, or Dockery?

 

Who looks comfortable and has success catching punts and handling kick-off duties?

We won't see the starters for more than a series or two so that rules out alot of the above. But I want to see some of our guys in the secondary make some plays. I'll also be keeping my eye on Ealy.

Talked to a Lions fan today that said not one of our receivers could catch a cold. I pointed to the fact that Kelvin hasn't dropped a pass all during camp.

The bad thing is he said it doesn't matter what happens in the preseason. The Lions went 4 and 0 in the preseason and then went on to win 0 games a couple of seasons ago. 0 games.

My point is that I will be watching all of our receivers.

I havn't been this excited to watch our 2nd and 3rd string play in a long time. We have so much depth everywhere (well, besides O-line).

Personally i hope we play the starters for a quarter outside of Cam and some of the guys that are banged up. Our young guys and new Panthers in general need all the reps they can get. We have positional battles going on all over the board and I'd like to see a few guys grab the bull by the horns and win their spots. I know we have 4 games to figure it out but young starters like Melvin White, maybe AJ Klein, Short/Star, and Lester (assuming Harper won't play) should get more reps than our veteran starters.

The game is all about the lines.

That being said I'm not worried bout the DL.

So the Oline is what I wanna see . The second string is of great concern.

My guess is kb will have zero catches and the huddle will freak out
