*Waits for a huddler to go into panic mode over Cam throwing two picks in OTAs*

 

I call "Cam returning punts"

Rivera on last year's Defensive Rookie i the Year Luke Kuechly: "Whoever coached him before he got here did a hell of a job." #Panthers

 

 

Panthers wrap up week 1 of OTAs, Ron Rivera impressed with the slimmed down Greg Hardy, says he had to tell him to tone down intensity.

No news is good news:  Kawann Short is not sitting out--so the knee rumor was just that.

 

Some news is not news:  Stewart sitting out.  What the heck?

Yes.  I concur.  I was actually asking, "What injury is it this time?" Stewart has to be the slowest healer in the Post-bronze age era. He must have an undated note from his mother.

He will play some...

Otherwise, he will spend the first regular season game or so getting into football shape

Smith is in game shape by training camp most seasons. Also Gonzales never seems to be put of shape when the games start in ATL. Rivera is known to rest players and with his job on the line this year I doubt he plays him much at all.

I don't know...pretty sure Steve has been on record numerous times talking about the process needed to be ready week 1. 

 

Steve doesn't sit out preseasons.  Maybe a game or something....but he plays unless hurt.  Violent players can't sit on the shelf and then go out there week 1 and be ready.  They need the real contact.

thanks. calls his franchise QB mr. mopeyhead and one of his top corners is down with a tummy ache.

it's official. our HC is mr. rogers.

Hopefully from now on he will refer to Matt Ryan as "Mr. Caca Pants."

    • Destiny really fuged me in terms of me playing other games. I have a week off this summer and maybe I will be able to dive back in, but I'd really like to finish Breath of the Wild too.  Witcher is so much fun, but iirc I'm kind of at a point where all my quests are a much higher level than me (like 30s and I'm a 15 or something). I probably need to back track and pick up a bunch of side quests that are manageable to boost my level some.    I like the Witcher's lore better than Skyrim, but I still think Skyrim is a more appealing game to me just because you can casually pick it up and start dominating. Witcher is more rewarding but takes more time. 
    • No way would I consider CAP a lock to make the roster. In fact, I think he may be on the outside looking in at the moment. But, the stats bear out that he was roughly equal to Stew in effectiveness last year. Stew averaged 3.78ypc and a TD once every 24 carries. CAP averaged 4ypc and a TD once every 18 carries. Hell, it may be generous saying that Stew was equal to CAP in effectiveness last year. I think a lot of Panthers fans suffer from nostalgia when looking at Stew. I still think he's a decent RB, but to hear some Panthers fans talk you'd think that the guy was a future HOFer. I feel like most of us (myself and the front office and coaching staff included) have perpetually overvalued Jonathan Stewart.
