My default answer is that we do, but I'd also point out that three days practice - much of which was unpadded - isn't a great sample on which to base a decision.

Well, these guys ain't new....we know Piggy has been regressing for years and Bell is limited.

Exactly! We already know what we have in those spots and what they are capable of based on last year. Screwed unless someone gets cut from another team and even then, no ones cutting a stud so it would just be a fill gap any way.

RT could be solved with a little tutoring for Bruce. No question about his strength, skill, athleticism. Its all mental for him. If he can grasp the playbook, we could have a solid RT.

As far as RG, we are one vet away from having a solid unit upfront.

All and all, i feel like its Mr. Gettlemans's plan to wait to fill in the OL.

I just don't get why we'rte hanging on to Hangartner as a starter.  I can still see why coaches want Bell to succeed but RG is a glaring need.

We might not be able to get an All Pro but vet cuts will make an upgrade at either spot realistic. All a matter of us pulling the trigger.

With Cam....a one year rental would be well worth it

I'm glad all of you feel comfortable with Amini.  He scares me just as much as the RG position ....especially in pass plays.

 

I hope the address the OL like DL in the draft next year.

We took this route last year and got dwan. I'm not worried. The fact we worked out Wharton shows me they're searching.

Having played offensive line on a college level i understand the that the D-Line most always has the advantage early! Ive been a part of some dominant olines in college that were made to look silly by the d in the first couple practices on every level! Having said that im simply not happy with our right side at all! Going back watching film from last year i saw Bell get not only abused by speed but also dominated in the bull rush, which simply cant happen this year with some of the D-Lines on our schedule.....i love Gettleman but i dont understand why we arent going after someone now at the RG spot NOW, ecspecially with the recent cap space we've cleared up! Playing Oline is about being a unit and meshing together and creating chemistry! you have to know the man next to you's tendencies, where he needs help and where he can hold his own! The earlier they bring in someone the better! As stated before as the OLine goes so does the Team and if we want to make a deep run this year its on the big boys upfront

Noooo. It's facing the reality that there has been no personnel change on the line since last season to upgrade a position that has such a glaring need. This could be recognized before the 1st whistle blew for training camp.

My experience is that D always dominate O early in TC. If they weren't I would be worried. It takes a week or 2 for a Oline to Gel so let's not panic yet.

reality was there weren't any real opportunities to uograde positions.
before the draft, we simply didn't have the money.
The draft went in a way that no upgrades fell to us.

After the draft, it's arguable at best.
The panthers have to balance the future cap along with the the chance someone still available is even an upgrade.

Cry all ya want, but the panthers have done what they can.

We'll see if someone worth while comes available, or by trade. I'm sure our GM is more aware of the situation.

Bell will do ok in the run game which is our emphasis this year. In the passing game he gets abused by star DEs. The real question is how many of those will we face and can we gameplan for it? My biggest concern is just the depth. None of our reserves have a name. None of them are veterans.
