I thought we had a padded practice every week.

Hurt the injury statistic obviously. Plenty of players early in the season were getting hurt because they were not in "football shape" and some players on certain teams are still on IR because the lockout kept them from seeing their team's medical staff. The limit on the number of padded practices is a good change imo. It will allow players to play for 2 or 3 seasons longer than they would have otherwise (because of limiting physical damage to bodies etc).

Are you saying you think the lockout helps that statistic or hurts it?

I guess either way you would be right.


I think injuries might be up this year...or the norm for the Panthers. :o


Teams are just now getting into football shape. You can tell by how defenses are much better now than at the beginning of the season. Seems the only team that is still scoring 30+ every game is GB.

Well yea the Panthers always seem to have major injuries no matter what, but I see what you mean.

I guess the rules are supposed to lessen injuries in training camp when there is a full offseason with OTAs and the workouts etc.

I just wonder if in the long run it would lead to more or less during the regular season. I guess the biggest impact this year is the readiness of some players.

Of course they are in pads. I'm sure Rivera decided this before the season started. With a limited number of padded practices obviously you will do it when they have been off for a week to help them get back into game shape.

Protecting the players is good but 14 padded practices for a 16 game season is dumb.

welp, theres moron, I guess we should see insane racist in upcoming posts. :)


Not really sure how to turn this into something racist, but if the idea of full grown men wearing maxi pads isn't insane, then the internet is more awesome than I thought.

If all teams have the same number of practices how is it dumb? The playing field is level.
