Carolina Panthers Practice Update - Receivers

Recommended Posts

A few things of note with the receivers today worth mentioning. 

First, Curtis Samuel saw the most action since his only day of Spartanburg training camp practice. Samuel was used in much the same way that Christian McCaffrey is in the receiving game. That should be no surprise. Samuel still wears a sleeve on his leg to help prevent further injury. 

Kelvin Benjamin had a good day of practice and is now far and away the best performing receiver out there. Kelvin really seems to have taken the early year criticisms to heart and is out to prove everyone wrong.

Funchess, on the other hand, did not have such a great day. Devin had an opportunity to score a touchdown in the back corner of the end zone but was out played by Daryl Worley. 

The starting receivers were still Benjamin, Funchess, and Shepard. That has not changed at all. Will it change this preseason? I doubt it. It will take poor performances in the regular season for any changes to be made, imo.

It almost like funchess is the number 2 by default. He has not earned it

With Samuel getting into action, that will change. Samuel will replace funchess as a starter sooner rather than later.

I'd say this is Fun Funs last year with us. Sometimes ya just got to know when to let a man go 

Great to hear  Samuels getting back in shape. Hopefully he contributes sooner rather than later.

Did someone say poor performances in the regular season?

Now this is something we might actually be able to count on from Funchess.

the fact that it's going to take an offensive implosion in season to get rivera to change things up just points to how it's time to clean house. or at least take control of the offense away from him. of course that will never happen and it'll stay status quo all the way to another losing season

Benjamin is like "Am I really gonna have to carry this team". The sad truth right now is yes.

Funchess is the new Dwayne Jarrett. You keep hoping and hoping he'll just "get gud" but like Bokeem Woodbine in the movie, Life, he's our Can't Get Right
