So I caught the tail end of practice today. When I first showed up I was stunned to see a group of Ravens fans hanging out. As David Clowney was walking out of practice he looked right at me and told me we should "bodybag" those Ravens fans, LOL. I would be totally down for that if not for this whole house/job/child thing I've got going on. By the look of the Ravens fans, most of them will be dead in a year or two from clogged arteries anyways...

Fox asked me if I had played any offensive line on the way out of practice, I responded "yeah, in high school" and he told me to leave my name with someone (didn't catch the name he gave, wasn't Hurney). Asked Beason on the way out of practice if he felt okay and he said the knee was fine and he would be out there on Sunday. Solomon Wilcots (from the NFL network) was observing practice as well.

Caught them working on the 2 minute drill... 1st defense vs. 1st team offense. First series I saw was rough, St. Pierre threw a good ball to Gettis on a slant that Gettis bobbled but eventually secured. Had this been real action I'm pretty sure a hit would have rendered it an incomplete pass. The second play was batted down by a defensive lineman (not sure who) and the third play was easily picked off by Chris Gamble.

They reset and the next series was better, St. Pierre connected on a few short passes and then threw one to Smith in the end zone that hung up in the air and would probably have been picked in live action. The thing I noticed is that St. Pierre seems to get the ball out quickly and throws short passes with good accuracy but not much velocity.

Didn't catch Pike doing anything. No Stewart or Clausen at practice today. Didn't see Devin Thomas doing anything besides watching... didn't notice how much work Armanti was getting, didn't see him take any snaps (but may have missed it).

I'm more surprised that he didn't ask you if you played QB.

Oh, and there was a couple visiting there from out of town - they were big time Panthers fans... the guy had a Panthers logo tatooed on the back of his hand. They took the tour of the stadium and ran into Mike Craft (the "Inside the Panthers" guy). He took pictures with them and then went off and came back with a complimentary hat signed by Steve Smith... pretty awesome stuff.

Speaking of Smith, he actually acknowledged my presence today, LOL. He normally just walks by with his head down and/or his helmet on and doesn't even look over at the fans standing along the fence, but today he made eye contact and when I said "have a good game", he said "hey thanks big man". I think he's seen me around enough at this point to realize I'm not some autograph hound.

Wait you are getting recruited to play? I live right next to the practice fields. Let me slip into my mesh tank top and tell me where to stand.

Overall, I got the sense that these guys really appreciated seeing a couple of Panthers fans outside of practice. Almost each one of them acknowledged that I was standing there and said "hi" or something to that effect.

Yup, I left my name with them - they said they might call as late as Sunday morning to see if I was available, no practice required. I mean if they can start a QB on 4 days of practice, the can start an offensive lineman with no practice, right?

I'm just like Jamarcus Russell except I have no arm and I haven't touched the Purple Drank in at least a week (okay that's a lie).

You will be asked to stand beside Armanti and work with him on the field. How about that? :D Since we know how much you love him, its perfect!

I'll stand next to you. I'm good at making you look awesome by comparison.

This season would actually be sad, if it wasn't so funny.

So many things have gone wrong, it's really not worth getting upset over anymore.

Nope.

I laugh, however it does suck to not even want to watch the games....I still do, but I certainly don't get too excited about it.

Should we be worried that Clausen was not at practice at all? If you are inactive do you not show up or could he be more messed up than we thought? I don't think anyone is assuming he would not play again next week.
