I expect to be there wearing my Panther poncho which I got last year at the Jacksonville game during halftime. The forecast is for steady rain and occasional thundershowers all night. Seems expectations and attendance at camp has been up but attendance for a preseason game it usually down even in good weather. It also seems as if the lower bowl is deserted given everyone scurries inside when it rains. i wonder how many folks will show up to get a look at the 2012 edition of the Panthers.

On a more important note, do you think the rain will affect our passing game or the defense tonight?? Will we run it more or not?? You know Houston is going to try and pound it and I can't believe we will be any different. Will we play loose zone given the poor footing or turn it loose and blitz given the difficulty throwing down field. It should definitely slow down our wide open offense.

I expect to be there wearing my Panther poncho which I got last year at the Jacksonville game during halftime. I wonder if attendance for a preseason game will be way down given the forecast for rain and thundershowers. Seems expectations and attendance at camp has been up but nothing stops that like bad weather.

A lot QBs don't seem to be as overly bothered by a light rain as some in the past suggest.

It isn't a real game so unless it is a medium to heavy rain....I expect us to pass a fair amount.

Yeah I remember the 40% rain chance and possible thundershower forecast for the Jacksonville game last year.

Just sayin.................................
