...you could count on Fox to run off tackle the first play of EVERY game. Chud enjoys making it fun for the players, and I could see him getting creative tonite.
I'd love to see him line up Dwill, Tolbert, and Stew showing triple option. Fake the belly to Tolbert and the toss to Dwill, take a step back and hit Olsen running a streak down the seam. If they catch the Texans being too aggressive and complete this for good yardage, it should set the tone for a better running game the rest of the night.

I see it being relatively bland running the basics and showing nothing of the offense they will be using come regular season.

It will definitely be bland through out preseason...no need in showing your cards before the regular season.

there's two things i really don't want to see in preseason games.

1- starters get much playing time at all. none is preferred.
B- playbook get opened up significantly. keeping it closed is preferred.

save the players the team relies on and the playbook for games that actually count.

i want to see the panthers play just as much as anyone, but i want it to matter when they play. i can wait a few more weeks to see what they have in store and if it takes away a chance that someone gets hurt in a meaningless game by some clown trying to make a name for himself and earn a roster spot or by a player we rely on not being able to keep from giving 100% in a game that doesn't matter and gets hurt in the process.

Don't think we come out in the first pre season game showing our triple option. Don't wanna give away the goods too fast.

I dont understand..."If" we have a Triple Option...Why not show it in pre-season?

We could show it on the first week but then you still got 15 other opponents who have time to adjust to it...You mines well practice in pre-season then to wait until the regular season and risk fumbling or something...

All I want is NO INJURIES
