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.

Really? 9 games into the season and there's an issue on the O-line?

Little quick to pull that trigger aren't ya?

In the meantime the running game gets even worse behind yet another version of an O-line that hasn't played together for any length of time.

OLines that have to protect twice as long wear out twice as fast.

It isn't rocket science. Its a bad group to begin with, this makes it 10 times worse.

They looked last week.

Only thing they will consider doing is subbing in a bad G with another.

Gross and Bell are staying put which keeps Campbell out.

What we need to do is line and up run the ball.....stick with it. Real running. Will keep teams from teeing off on them.

If anyone on this board had any hope of wining any games this year, well, I'd say that's over.

Even when everyone is healthy, IMHO, Kalil is the only true commodity...Gross is absolutely not the same player in 1x1s...at all.

The rest, well, they would do well to be backups, 3rd string at that, on most decent teams.

I really hoped that some magic something would be found that this team would rise up and turn a corner together with this current staff; but, it's pointless and I suspect they know it.

I lost all respect for that offense for at least not drawing a 15 and knocking Von Miller on his ass.

Rooting for the Panthers this year is kinda like competing for deck chairs on the Titantic.

It is simply amazing to me that the defense has not quit.
