@josephperson

Starting to see a pattern with these field goals: Mare two for four, short from 51. Medlock four for four plenty of distance from 51



If Medlock can work on his kickoffs he should win the job, hands down.

rivera better get over his man love over former ex chargers scrubs. there is no way that piece of garbage tutu is the 3rd receiver, he shouldnt be on the damn team.



Agreed, Murphy needs to be the third receiver this Friday night. Lafell better watch out also.

Carolina Panthers@Panthers
CB Josh Norman caps two minute drill with a leaping INT in front of TE Greg Olsen.


Joe Person@josephperson
Josh Norman picks off cam. Good play by Norman came off his receiver to jump the throw to Olsen.



Steve Reed@SteveReed_AP
Josh Norman makes a nice pick on Cam.


Steve Reed@SteveReed_AP
Carolina's three CBs in nickel defense: Chris Gamble, Captain Munnerlyn and Josh Norman.



Jonathan Jones@jjones9
Good pressure from Johnson and McClain on Cam to make him throw it away

I am confident that Medlock is the better placekicker. But, is he the better kickoff specialist? That short kickoff to the 10 yard line, gave up a touchdown in the preseason game. We can't have that. Hopefully it was a fluke.


If the Kickoff team could tackle, it wouldn't have been a TD. The coaching staff needs to start valuing points over kickoffs. Reports through out training camp said Medlock was kicking them into the endzone on every kick. Im pretty sure it was a fluke. Even if he has one bad KO every once in a while, I would be happy knowing that he can be reliable in tight games. The KO team should be able to tackle a returner. There's just no excuse for that.

Carolina Panthers@Panthers
Two days after Rivera's message, team intensity is at all-time hugh. Play has been strong today.

Panthers rookie RB Tauren Poole carted into the locker room, but unclear what's wrong. Poole scored Carolina's only TD Saturday night.

considering the leg that guy has, there should be no short kicks like there was saturday. only reason i can think of is to see how the coverage units handle them. imo, holliday is about as good a test as you can have. that kid is a bullet. unfortunately we failed that one. i just don't know that the intention was to allow him a chance to return it.

AGREE!!!!
I will go out of my mind and Tutu is given the No.3 WR spot. RR better now make creating plays going to Tutu on a crucial third down like to how did with Naanee last year.

RR always bring the scrubs from SD but never want to sign a decent guy like a "Garay".

I'd be more inclined to believe that the kicker who has not been able to make in in the NFL for the past 5 years just botched the kick.

Jonathan Jones‏@jjones9

Rivera said Medlocks short kickoff that led to a TD was the biggest disappointment of the night.

Yeah, I can't believe Medlock is still on the roster considering he made a mistake.

Also is could of been as simple as just a singular poor kick - and nothing more

kicks from the 50 are great and the fact that he has plenty of leg is fantastic buuuut, dude better be lights out inside the 40. . and he shouldnt be kicking line drives from that range. I havnt watched him much yet but those are things Id like to see personally.

So nice having Mega and Rayray representing the common sense crowd here on the huddle. . I fell much less inclined to post sarcastic remarks with them representin.
