Training Camp Wrapup - August 11

56 posts in this topic

I know there was a lot of talk about Brandin Cooks and evidently he has been looking really good for N.O. early on, but more and more I get the feeling that Gettleman and staff got the exact guy they wanted. 

 

I wanted KB bad after watching a lot of ACC football this season (UNC fan), but waffled some in the off-season.  I've gotta just quit reading pre-draft "analyst" bullshit on guys who I've actually watched through the season.

 

OH, if you've actually watched a guy, you're the best one to make judgements on him vs media.

 

Just think of what you know of regarding the Panthers vs National media?

 

Most of these guys haven't watched teams play they talk about. It's all guess work, or Group Speak.

 

Even scouts, get stuff wrong often (which is why I didn't mind KB was drafted 28th), cause many times you have high draft picks that suck, and lower draft picks that end up being all pro players. It's a crap shoot in the end.

 

With KB; Gettleman and crew, obviously saw what you, I and other Panther fans did.

 

Can't wait to see the next Pre-Season, and eventually real games.

Godfrey also was no match for the strength of Brandon Williams. Williams has improved a great deal in pass protection.

Hope Swole Bones doesnt make a habit of blocking like this, he'll get flagged every time.

Fortunately for us however, even other GM's must have read the fears, just as they must have read/believed with Star last year for different reasons.  Turn on the tape, use the eyeball test, and it is what it is-an absolute thoroughbred of a football player that I would not trade for anyone in this entire draft class because it filled such a need with such quality. 

 

I just love saying it as I have so many times on this forum-his college coach said he would be a top 3 pick if he came back, he comes from a high school that has produced more NFL players than any other, won a national championship at F$U, and has physical skills that don't even currently exist in this league. 

 

Amazing.

"Holding, number 86, offense....ten yard penalty, replay the down."

 

 

 

That pic of KB though, damn.  I know he's big, but in that picture - maybe the depth perception - he looks freaking gigantic!

 

Excellent recap as always

The Photo Blogger strikes again!  Great work this training camp. All those pics of "swolle bones" just looked unfair.  Him on a DB a man amongst boys.

Nah not really thats how they are taught to block and in the trenches where he will be blocking this will not get flagged as long as he doesnt continue to hold when the defender makes a move to get free.  Thats pretty sound technique, i would like to see his hands on the inside though.

One thing I saw today was Norman getting dogged in one on one drills. Avant got him with a stutter step and Benjamin was just too much. Marcus Lucas also had a nice route during these drills. His defender (I can't remember who) bit on a double move and it drew cheers from the crowd.

Won't lie every time I see G-spot in those shorts I just gotta ask "Why?" and then crack up.
