Stopped by practice today...

Recommended Posts

I stopped by practice today, it's funny that they put those black tarps up on the fence because in reality you can see right through them, or you can walk right up to a gap between the tarps and see just about anything you want to see... it has often made me wonder if anyone is scouting our practices?

Anyways, I'm not going to go into details about what I saw the Panthers do for obvious reasons - but I can tell you that both Moore and Clausen seemed to be taking an even number of reps with the 1's, so the question about who starts against SF may be more up in the air then it might seem.

I also saw DT run a couple of nice routes and make a couple of nice catches. The guy is definatley explosive, when he makes a cut he hits another gear. Had a chance to chat with him after practice on his way out, nice guy - bigger than I expected - if you didn't know what position he played and someone told you he was a linebacker you would believe it.

No Beason or DWill at practice today. Coach Fox was the last to leave the practice field and took extra time to chat with a few fans and take pictures. There is one thing you can say about Fox, he treats the fans first class, it has always been a pleasure to be around him - every time I've met him he's greeted me with a warm smile and a firm handshake. There are guys who force themselves to be nice to the fans and then there is Fox. We often forget that the coaches and players we watch every week are human beings. Regardless of what kind of coach you think Fox is, I can tell you that he's an A++ human being based on the multiple interactions I've had with him and the interactions I've watched him have with other fans. No matter what happens this year, or after this year, I wish coach Fox all the best.

Take this for what you will, but I decided to play devil's advocate and say to coach Fox as I was shaking his hand: "we're not going to lose you, are we?" to which he replied: "I hope not". I can clearly see how this was the only good answer to the question I asked from a PC standpoint and I wouldn't read much of anything into it, but I thought I would share anyways.

ok, I have always wondered but never asked. Are you THE Catman or just a Catman?

Eh, don't think id have enough balls to ask him that question.

I'm good at playing the "big dumb guy" routine for some reason?

i've seen that people in here can see the practice field from their condos and offices.

i'd be pretty surprised if other teams didn't have scouts watching and even filming practice (not that it is particularly needed this year).

I'm not THE Catman, just a Catman.

It's pretty encouraging to hear the good words about DT. Trying not to get my hopes up though but I'm secretly really excited about him. Don't tell anyone.
