How would you compare todays practice to the typical boring Fox practice? Sounds like there was a lot of energy tonight?

There was a lot of energy tonight, guys were getting after it pretty hard... wouldn't be surprised if the coaches were telling them to pull back a little bit.

There was definately more energy this year than the 1st practice last year but I think a lot of that was generated by Cam's presence... the place was ready to explode every time he completed a pass and I'm sure the players could feel that.

Yup, $2 beers @ a Panthers event... it is a new era!

Great to have you back out there CatMan! This is what I've been waiting for man!

Wanted to ask you though, did Smitty look back to his old explosive form? Or does he look like he's losing some of that athleticism (as I thought last year) and learning to play around it?

I will also say that JStew looked much more quick than I'm used to seeing... when he practiced at all in the past, it always seemed to me that he was holding back. I know Gross said on the radio that other day that Stew seemed to be running better than ever and I could see what he mean, not used to seeing Stew run with that much quickness.

Smitty looked good to me, very aggressive and totally beat the man covering him on several occasions.

Yup, he really impressed me today (apparently he impressed Person and others as well). He looked like a WR, made one spectacular catch and several really nice catches, looked very smooth and quick.

this seems like a far cry from when fan were saying Kealoha Pilares was going to be ahead of armanti on the depth chart and he might be cut. speaking of cut, does anyone think he'll be cut now?

Oh yeah, was Pilares out there? I know there was a question about his MCL or something around combine time...

Pilares looked very quick to me, on one particular play he ran a slant route and totally left the man covering him in the dust.

Having said that, if Armanti continues to perform the way he did today I have no doubt that he will see some major playing time this year.
