James Anderson said in an interview, that he thinks TD will be fine.

Gantt and the Observer are saying tests have already been done and they need more tomorrow - not good. Usually a simple push, pull and tug on the knee joint from different positions by a ortho doc will tell them if the knee, especially the ACL, is intact and stable.

If they weren't able to tell this from those initial tests, I'm not feeling too good about this. Plus, everyone saying TD just looked pissed as he walked off... How would you look if you knew it WASN'T a 'be back tomorrow' injury? Pissed.

I hope he's fine but it's not sounding good. Gantt said he specifically 'tweaked his right knee,' the same one he tore up to end his '09...

Damn MHS, way to hit a grand slam in your first big league at bat so to speak. Very well done. Welcome to the huddle.

Since you all seemed starved for info (which is the reason I went to the OTAs) I am not as concerned as I was yesterday. The DL is weak, but we have the best DL coach in football. With Norwood, we will be harder to block. Imagine Norwood coming in on third and long, Hardy and Brown at end, Johnson and Brayton moving inside. I never saw that configuration today, but we will. About Hardy: The have him at 270 or so, but he looked 250--I think he is very strange--but so was Peppers at times.

Cantwell has improved people. They were giving him a lot of looks. He threw two long balls to LaFell, one a skinny post and the other a go--both were a step overthrown. However, I saw three very positive things. LaFell was getting open, by the time the bal arrived we had safety help (cover 3, 1 deep)== Martin both times. He is fast and smart--and the ball was on a rope and placed where nobody else had a chance to get it except LaFell. Timing is all.

The intensity was much higher than the two OTAs I saw last year. Players were sprinting. I saw two tackles on two consecutive plays--they were going at it.

About Jarrett, I pull for him. Smith was pissed about something he did. I think he lined up on the wrong side. He stood there looking at the coach, frozen with his arms open. LaFell, on the other hand, has confidence and a swagger like Smith. He is quieter, but he is a rookie now.

Clausen was quiet and reserved. He seemed pissed. Maybe today was the day he was demoted back to third team. Anyway, he has a quick release and a tight spiral. As a former TE, I can't tell you how much easier the ball is to catch when the nose is in focus. Moore's bad passes were varied. One was an out route and I could not tell who jumped it, but he dropped the int. The other two passes were attempts to force passes to King on a drag and the LBs stepped in front. One was deflected and the other was a pick, #56 I think (Quentin....something).

By the way, don't underestimate Armanti Edwards' blocking. I think he is going to be very good. He catches everything, he is humble and working to improve. They will compare him to Smith before long.

Barnidge has got some hands. Made some great catches that pulled him offbalance a bit, but he maintained his stride. Walls was great, but he would fall after he caught it. Barnidge wants more yardage. Of course, he is no Wall.

Kenny Moore is looking pretty good. He is confident and upbeat. I think some have him written off, but he is not so certain.

That KO specialist is amazing. He seemed accurate enough for 50+ Fgs, but without a rush...

Maybe it was me, but this team is drinking the Kool-Aid. They will be fast, stupid at times, but there is elite potential everywhere. If half of it materializes, the Panthers are going to be scary.

And thanks for all the good words. I had the day off, so I wanted to share because I feel like I am in the dark a lot. The press tells us what the Panthers want us to know, so I try to get out once or twice a year and watch while the boys get autographs. I am too old for that, but I enjoy talking to the players. I think they appreciate someone not trying to get something from them.

good stuff. although, i'm at the point where i don't really care too much about how players are doing right now considering it's just OTA's. and training camp is really where it's at. if Moore is throwing picks and wayyyy off target passes come August, then we'll have problems.

and of all the hype that's being thrown Cantwell's way, i'm still not sold on the guy. yeah, he may be throwing the ball into some tight places, but will those throws turn into INT's once they put on full pads, and are playing against another team??? which is why i always wait till pre-season to judge any of our QB's. jake delhomme was apparently tearing it up in OTA's last off season, then when the real thing came, it was a different story.

Two WR's that remind of Smith, eh? I like this chatter.

This is exactly what I feared with Davis coming back so soon. Hopefully, everything checks out fine with Davis.
Glad to hear the good about Lafell and Edwards. I think those 2 will be big time receivers for us now and in the future. I dont know what to say about Jarett..

I was kinda worried about Davis rushing back too fast...... Wes Welker is doing the same thing in New England before you know it there is going to be a story about him going down in practice, these knee injuries are just too serious to rush
