Tattoorhino's thoughts from practice tonight 8/10

If Lafelle could be consistent he would be three for sure, but Armanti is looking really good to and has made some really nice catches also. Its gonna be a toss up between those two especially if Gettis knee is messed up.

Our defense is gonna be nasty for sure. Nothing vanilla about it. We arent playing to keep people from making large gains we are playing for them to make negative yards. Gonna be exciting.

Fantastic update. Your posts are some of the best on the site. I was at camp last Wednesday and Godfrey and Martin both looked good. Pugh was being commended for his work by the ST coach.

The safeties looked a lot better than any of the DB's last Wed, but Gamble wasn't practicing and that was before we signed Cheavis Jackson. I am anxious to see how the DB's play against the NYG.

Also, I know Godfrey has taking a beaten here some, but he is extremely fast closing on the ball. He definitely flashed some last year and hopefully he can continue to build on that this year.

Thanks again

Godfrey takes a beating for no reason. He has been improving every year and last year probably played the best out of all our secondary (yes including gamble). However the prejudices when he was new continue to haunt him around here.

i love hearing about Gaither's fire on the defense. this is something we've been missing for too long on that side of the ball

I am glad to hear that Armanti is still doing well. It will be real interesting to see how he responds in a game after getting hit. Seems like he doesn't have the deer in the head lights look and that is a good thing.

As much as I'm excited for what Cam is gonna bring to the table both this year and long-term...

I maybe even more excited about our defense. We already had talent but Fox didn't build a system that capitalized on what our guys do well. He forced them to do what his defense called for... I knew when we brought in Riv and then McD from Philly, our defense was gonna be aggressive, hard-nosed, and will dictate the offense, rather than let the offense dictate us.

I've been a huge fan of the Jim Johnson system FOREVER and put it up there with LeBeau's and Ryan's, any day.

I can't wait to see what our guys do, especially once we get Hardy back starting opposite CJ, with Norwood backing up. We're gonna be sending so many guys the offensive lines will just open up like Lindsay Lohan's nostrils at a coke snorting party.

SN: Followed some of the tweets, and I'm not too let down by Cam's poor showing tonight... It's expected that he'll have some huge highs and some low lows this season, but I expect the highs to be 10x better than the poor outings. BUT, good to hear Jimmy stepped up and actually threw it deep a little bit.

ASN: Tattoo, I thought by the title that you were about to deliver a sermon: "Notes from practice... TO - NIGHT - TAHHHH! *organ player*

Not really, I can remember Stanley McClover doing the same thing. How did that turn out? I'm not interested in practice warriors, I'm more concerned with who performs when the lights are on, like Smitty said.

Oh and just an FYI, the best DT (Kris Jenkins) the panthers have ever had, sucked at practice.

    • Funny, but the thing I noticed was that he considered himself a fullback---(The Panthers are one of the few teams that used a FB...) when he had never played.  I am sure the Panthers told him that, but I wondered if that was HIS intent. I think this is another "Swiss Army knife" player.  He is a FB with TE experience.  Can he catch?  Can he slide out to a wing or even line up as a TE?  Throw him into an offense that has McCaffrey (who can catch passes) and Samuel (who can run the ball) and these three players are capable of lining up as TE/RB/WR, FB/WR/WR, TE/RB/RB, etc. I am not suggesting that he is going to line up as a TE as Olsen does, but Brockel or even Dickson Hbacking could be in the cards for him.
    • He has fumbled one single time. I don't think he's a lock. However if Fozzie is expendable then of the current guys I suppose he makes it.
