Facing constant pressure from all angles, the Panthers have yet to score an offensive touchdown and have allowed 11 sacks entering Saturday's third preseason game against Tennessee at Bank of America Stadium.

``It seems like more of the defense is installed for the teams when we're playing them,'' Gross said Friday. ``It's almost like a real game as far as the packages that are getting thrown at us. It's definitely tough.''

``I think it's easy to say when it doesn't go well that it's just the preseason,'' Gross said. ``But the bottom line is we want to be more productive.''

Blitzing has become a much more prevalent and part of everyday schemes, so they need to practice them in exhibition games.


That's what I've been saying. They're not rookies. :smash:


This is sad:

Panthers reserve DE Hilee Taylor was to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery, Fox said after Friday's practice. Taylor entered camp facing difficult odds to make the 53-man roster.

We rode the shuttle from CMC last week with his parents & brother. Wonderful people. Hope he convalesces well and quickly. :cheers2:

the first thing they should be practicing is protecting against the blitz, but it always seems like the last thing on the coaches mind..

in Fox's defense though, that is a lot of pointless time putting his defense in a 3-4 scheme to let the OL/offense prepare. He is trying to form both his offense and defense.

THe excuse during the regular season? Let's see... our STARTING RBs know the offense and how to pick up blitzes, the O actually game-planned against the blitz packages. Considering Rex Ryan and co. were sending 8 on third and long and our 5th string RB wiffed on his block to protect the QB. We were one dimensional, working on the pass in the first two games. Come on. Show some football common sense. Yes, there will be sacks in the regular season, but if you send 8 and we pick them up, you lose 6 points. He was showing off for HBO.

That was a very good and true post.

"Come on. Show some football common sense."

Seems this is sometimes lacking with a lot of fans.

I guess its a bad year to be shuffling lineman all game. We did learn one thing though. Duke Robinson cant pass block to save his life. I know the Jets are going to pay for showing so many of there blitzes this preseason. Prob other teams as well, the less is more approach is always best in preseason.

Fox likes to employ this strategy until about game 12.

Our running game will help cool off some of the blitzing, we've purposely been leaning on the passing game this pre-season and we've played the two heaviest blitzing teams in the NFL.
