Here's a nice little change of pace from the "Vote For The Panthers" or "Insert Name Here Disrespected Us" threads.
 
Link: http://www.nfl.com/n...g-training-camp
 

23. The Carolina Panthers' entire secondary
 
Charles Godfrey should have one safety spot locked down, but after that it's a mystery. The cornerback candidates include Captain Munnerlyn, Josh Norman, Drayton Florence and D.J. Moore. Translation: The Panthers better have a great pass rush to compensate.

 

14. Carolina Panthers No. 3 receiver: Ted Ginn vs. The Field
 

Ted Ginn wants to be known as a wide receiver rather than just a return man. We have our doubts he'll make much of an impact, but he's the best option out of a shaky group that includes a lot of returner types like Armanti Edwards, Domenik Hixon, Joe Adams and Kealoha Pilares.

 
It should probably say "Domenik Hixon vs. The Field" but regardless it's still a training camp match-up to watch.
 
Any who, feel free to tell everyone who you think is going to walk away winning their respective position battle.

Our secondary is a good pool of talent with not much spread so it will be very competitive..

 

I do think Ginn gets the nod as the third receiver only because having him in the slot will pay more dividends than hixon. Hixon will rotate at the X spot.

They always sleep on Josh Thomas. I have some pretty high hopes for the kid.

Actually I think Ginn would be much better on the outside, running streaks and posts. His knocks come from his dislike of contact. He gets alligator arms because he's afraid to get hit. And if that's the case the slot is a bad idea for Ginn.

Slots receivers run more of clearout routes, corners and outs

 

Outside recievers are the ones running the slants and digs, "middle of the field routes"

Lafell plays the slot more than anyone in 3 receiver sets.

1. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback: Michael Vick vs. Nick Foles

It's No. 1 on the list because it's a starting quarterback job for a team that might make the playoffs. It's easy to forget Vick was getting MVP consideration only three years ago. He's the favorite because of his salary and experience, but Foles has a legitimate chance.

 

The Eagles in the playoffs????

?...I guess, in theory, all 32 teams have a shot at making the playoffs. But really, I think that evaluation might be more wishful thinking than anything else. Still, you never know.

It's right if you think about the fact is actually reads "First round draft pick vs. The Field". Gotta love media.

This...it kills me when bitches fail to mention Thomas, who I feel will start at one corner spot. The things about Thomas that I like is that if he gets beat he goes down swinging, not this Josh Norman give you a first down but not touchdown bullshit.

Josh Norman has freakishly long arms for a player of his height, and decent speed and quickness. Norman just screwed up too much last season, but he should start if he's learned how to play the position. Josh Thomas is listed at 5'10, but he looks about 5'7 on the field, and has short arms. Watching Thomas trying to cover Bay-Bay in the Broncos game was a nightmare. You have to have a certain height or reach to cover tall NFL WRs, and he just doesn't have it. He is deceptively strong, and a good tackler, decent speed, but still a liability.

Watching anyone other than Josh Thomas covering anyone on the outside was the nightmare. You totally just said that Josh Thomas was a liability because of his physical size and that Josh Norman was promising because of his size and measurables....forget about the "screw ups" Norman has the physical tools......good call.

Josh Norman has more potential than Josh Thomas imo. Norman's mental errors were a major problem last season, but if he's cleaned that up (I'm not saying he has) then he should start imo. Thomas is a liability against large WRs due to his size. That is not at all controversial. Norman is better suited to cover larger WR's due to his long arms, that's my opinion.

Really curious to see how Barner competes for the return spot as well.  Kid is a really good return man some people forget.  Remember just a few years back against Tennessee in the national tv game he had the nice long PR TD, also had 1 or 2 KR taken up to 40.  The announcers also mentioned that chip kelly and the staff thought he was the best return man in the country and one the better ones they've seen.

Think we really got 2 Steals in Barner and Lester.
