Mr. Scot

Good news for Thomas Davis

38 posts in this topic

AP item in the Observer (link)

Davis went to meet with Dr. James Andrews, a knee specialist, this week and received a "very positive report" and may increase his workload at next week's three-day minicamp, the team's final work before the start of training camp. Davis has been participating solely in individual drills during Carolina's organized team activities the past three weeks.

Didn't see a reporter name. Wonder if it came from Reed.

Gut feeling: Davis plays this year but as a backup/rotational guy rather than a full-time starter.

Yeah, I can't see them relying on him to be the starter. I really, really hope he's able to come back and perform, but that's two tough injuries to come back from.

Its a long shot, but if Davis, Beason, and Edwards are all healthy this year, our defense will improve significantly. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed. :)

All I know is whenever I see TD on the field this year I will be holding my breath that I don't see him go down. It's just gut wrenching and stressful for me. Yeah, I think I have issues...

Good news. I'll be happy if he gets any significant playing time this year, backup or not, without injury just to show that he's capable.

Pretty sure you won't be the only one :unsure:

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
