I thought it was really interesting that they had Beason playing OLB, saw him playing SLB more than WLB. Would they really consider moving him out to OLB to compensate for Davis's injury?
Well, who is our best 3 with Davis out? Conner is a good LB coming out of one of the linebacker factories. He is best suited to play the middle. So wouldn't it make sense to play him there, moving Beason outside? Makes sense to me anyways. I'm sure they are going to experiment with many combinations to find out which they like best.

thanx for the update..im starting to get really concerned with moore lately..

There is no reason to be concerned with Matt Moore. It is June 9. This is the time of year teams work out kinks, get timing down etc...

Concern will come if these things are happening after the first pre-season game.

I guess if your choices are Andersen, Connor and Beason than it may make the most sense to put Connor in the middle, but the MLB is the quarterback of the defense and is in a much better position to react and make plays all over the field than an OLB.

I am glad that they are experimenting, this may be good evidence that the Davis injury is serious...

ditto this... but to his credit, moore seems to be a game-time guy, not a practice guy. delhomme was the opposite - looked like brady during practice but stunk it up on the field.

i do think clausen will be a legit starter if moore doesn't pull it off.

tis true...and I would rather have a game time guy obviously...they should just stop practicing anyway.

True, plus Moore has always had a reputation as a poor practice player - right?

Nonetheless, I was concerned with our offense's apparent inability to move the ball through the air. Most of the gains I saw during the 11 on 11 drills came in the form of running plays (w/ no contact) or short dump off passes.

Saw very few mid to deep pass attempts and didn't see anyone connect on the attempts I saw...

i think Clausen is going pleasantly surprise Carolina Nation. But this is just what a ND fan thinks.

I'm not a ND fan, but I have a gut feeling Clausen is gonna be big time...

Can't say I agree with it. Even if it is minor, (and there is nothing to confirm otherwise, at this point), it would be wise for the Panthers to just hold him out of the rest of OTA's, to make sure he is healed up for the season.
