7-31 camp thread ....

I think these first few days are just everyone getting used to the sport again, getting used to contact, to timing. I'm not the least bit concerned about it. It wasn't until the first game of the season that he really looked good last year.

I'm not gonna lie, it certainly seems like Cam is throwing a lot more picks in camp this year... At least just in the first few days.

I hope it is just that our defense has gotten that much better and the offense has to catch up timing-wise and personnel-wise. BUT, he keeps getting picked by the d-lineman, that doesn't really have to do with timing or new players.

Dline is dropping back in all of those picks.

defense is getting more creative. offense is finding their groove.

again, not something to worry about unless you just want something to worry about.

Anyone else concerned with the number of picks Cam has thrown in practice. Yeah I know it's practice, but does that mean he's not taking it seriously? Practice? Yeah it's not a game. It's practice. Practice?

I've been concerned since the pro bowl. It's my #1 fear this season, since I saw that he had the potential to be that bad.

Beason does a nice job filling the hole on a Cam draw near the goal line.

Carolina Panthers@Panthers

Highlight of practice, and possibly camp so far, was DE Charles Johnson picking off a Cam Newton screen intended for Smith.

For those of you worried about picks - While certainly something to be concerned about, lets keep things in perspective. This is training camp, and specific throws and routes are being worked out. Cam will be making throws regardless of coverage, at times, just to work on a specific play. Cam's leash on full blown decision making will be limited to certain sets of defense v offense scrimmages. It's hard to tell the exactly what's going on via twitter. Some of these picks could be a poor decision by Newton while others were just throws that he was working on regardless of coverage.

Not TC related but

Steve Reed@SteveReed_AP

Hurney says team will meet with Otah tomorrow, give him a physical and the go from there.

Joe Person@josephperson

Panthers GM Marty Hurney says Otah is expected back tomorrow. panthers could try to trade, put him on the PUP list. Or terminate contract.

Joe Person@josephperson

First-order of business with Otah obviously will be a physical. Panthers expected to meet with him tomorrow in Spartanburg.

For instance, I suspect, that Cam might not have thrown a pick to CJ in a busted screen during a real game. He would probably have noticed it as a busted play and thrown it away or ran it.
