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...

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 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.
