The Panthers' offensive line struggled to contain the Broncos' pass rush, allowing a season-high seven sacks, and Rivera said there could be lineup changes coming.

"We're going to look at different things we can do with personnel," Rivera said.
One of the players waiting for his first opportunity of the season is tackle Bruce CampbellPosted Image. Acquired in an offseason trade with Oakland, Campbell played guard during his first two season with the Raiders, but Rivera said he is best suited playing behind Jordan GrossPosted Image at left tackle.

"Bruce, really his best, most natural position is left tackle," Rivera said. "But we most certainly are going to look at different options."

The left tackle spot has been manned by Gross for the better part of nine seasons, and Rivera praised the work of the team captain.

"Jordan is playing very well," Rivera said. "A lot of that was an avalanche with what happened (on Sunday). He did miss a couple plays, but for the most part, when you watch him and see what he's meant to anchoring that offensive line, it's pretty solid."


About damn time we try and give Cam better protection. Hopefully Jeremy Bridges will step in and help immediately. However, it's so hard to improve an O-Line with truly no good options out there.

There is nothing wrong with the line, I've been told numerous times by TonyN and Zod.

I am still laughing at the people who think the OL is what is causing Can's poor play.

Another thread had the stats that showed Cam was in the Top 10 for the QB with the most time in the pocket to pass.

He is so slow on his progressions that 3 step drops are turning into holding the ball for 5 sec.

Guy just is not able to read defenses and go through his progressions quickly. I think he can develop this, but it is a huge weakness of his.

I hate to agree with you but I do to a certain degree.I think the run blocking has been worse.
