This topic is now open for question regarding the game against the Bengals or the Carolina Panthers in general.

 

What would you like to discuss?

-Who's snaps do you see Moore taking?

Wright seemed to be our best WR last week and in camp.  Funchess has been hit or miss.  And Smith who hasnt done anything.

 

-Does the staff have full confidence in the safeties not name Searcy and Adams? Searcy is already in his 2nd injury so this could be a problem going forward.  If the staff doesnt have confidence in them going forward, do you see us possibly making a move for someone after Marty adjusted the cap with Luke's restructure

 

-Washington is polar opposite of Wilks.  Wilks was blitz heavy, while Washington doesnt seem fond to blitzing and all pressure come off DL (which seems right with him being a DL doach) week 1 he blitzed a couple times once resulting in a Shaq sack.  This past week he rarely did and when the DL didnt get pressure, Ryan stayed clean and picked us apart.  Could we see Washington mix some more blitzes in of our Line is struggling to get to the QB again?

Tepper has mentioned wanting more usage of analytics in the Panthers future planning and coaching.  Do the Panthers already have the people in place to do that sort of thing or is that a need for the future?  Also, any idea how people Ron Rivera, Marty Hurney, Norv Turner and others feel about this idea?

Also, we have some idea about what Norv Turner is like as an OC, but what about Scott Turner as a QB Coach?  How different is he from his predecessor, Ken Dorsey?

One more on a less serious note: Any chance David Tepper would sell his 5% stake in the Steelers to Ben Navarro? :)

How would either of you assess the Defensive Line? I think they've been fairly averaging going on two years now. Because we've had to blitz to get the majority of our sacks for two straight years. Also, do you think Ron Rivera's philosophy is outdated in this NFL? Where the most important thing is to stop the run? While the QB is getting the ball out quick and torching our trash secondary?

Can Kelsey play left tackle?

Kelsey is a former D1 soccer player, so she's got to be saved for emergency kicker/punter.

-Not sure how many snaps Moore will get (17 in each of first two games) but more touches for sure. He's got just two rush attempt and two targets, obviously one went for a 51 yard score...and showed off precisely why the Panthers drafted him...game-breaking ability after the catch. More Moore is on the horizon.

-Full confidence? Doubt it. They love Colin Jones for his ST works obviously, but this is Rashaan Gaulden's chance to show why he was drafted. They'll both be in the mix at both safety spots if Mike Adams needs a rest. More Gaulden if he can prove trustworthy.

-I expect DLine to get back on track at home, but yes, more blitzing from: Shaq Thompson/Captain Munnerlyn...Jackson if he plays?

There's definitely more of a difference between N. Turner and Shula at OC than there is between S. Turner and Dorsey at QBC. Obviously there's been a bit more precision, and so far, less risk taken from QB1.

LOL. I'm sure he'd sell it to anyone he can. Navarro just made a big purchase when it comes to Charleston tennis. Not the greatest consolation prize though.
