Mr. Scot

Turner confirmed out

Recommended Posts

Not that this likely surprises anybody, but in confirming it Max Henson points out that it leaves the task of blocking Bengals DT Geno Atkins in the hands of  Greg Van Roten, Tyler Larsen and Ryan Kalil.

The key matchup no one is talking about

I thought that had already been confirmed?

It's not so much that he's out as it is thinking about the matchup it leaves.

Gotta admit that's a concern.

Huge concern, Atkins is a very good DT.

My concern for the Oline is zero. Why? It's full of backups and anything that we get that's even remotely ok is a positive. Right now I'm just expecting Sack city every week. Aka It is what it is

Grady Jarrett is of a similar skill level as Atkins, and the interior o-line held up pretty well. Not sure why there is cause for panic this time around.

That's a hell of a lot of hits on Newton if you're right though.

That said, the line performed okay last week.

It's kind of a reversal, because for the last several years, we've had confidence  in our interior blockers while our outside guys have been questioned (even though Oher actually did pretty well). Today, I feel like more people have confidence in Clark and Moton than in Larsen, Van Roten and even Kalil.

To be fair, the other starting DT was Terrell McClain.

This might be an unpopular opinion but Trai did not look good against the Cowboys. I believe he had 2 holding calls and let a defender go untouched. I also remember him getting destroyed by Fletcher Cox last season. No way am I saying Larsen is better than him, but Trai does not make or break this offensive line.  Larsen had several starts last year and I believe he can do a good job filling in.

Can't speak for the prior, but it would make sense if his concussion was suffered during the Cowboys game.

The discussion of whether we paid the correct guard has come up on here before. I suspect the recent events will give it some added traction.

Has anyone found the play where Trai was concussed in the Dallas game?  Not discrediting their play, but it just seems odd to me when O lineman get concussions since they're not taking headshots more prone to skill position players.  With Oher and now Trai (believe he dealt with concussions last year too) what the hell's going on?

How come Panthers players concussions seem to last 10x longer than other player concussions around the NFL? I swear, other teams...player concussion...back in 1 week. Meanwhile for us a concussion is gaurenteed at least a month. I know player health is Paramount. It's just odd comparing to everyone else.

I admittedly don't know much about the Bengals, but their defense is ranked 27th and they haven't exactly played world beaters the first 2 weeks. Am I missing something?
