Steelers don't do it either, and I hope we model ourselves after that team.

i really don't think there's many teams doing this.


There aren't. It's actually pretty rare. Out of 32 teams, there might be two to four that do this annually.

The whole premise of this thread is misinformed.

I'm glad the Panthers don't do it. I feel like it helps keep our players healthy and being that we are the Panthers we need to take every measure keep our guys on the field. Even though our team goes hard in practice there is a subconscious instinct to let up on your teammates and honestly there is an opposite effect when you are playing another team.

 

You know this board would go ape sht if Cam or Smitty got hurt in a worthless scrimmage.

The Detroit Lions came in and scrimmaged the Panthers during training camp years ago. Only time we've done it, I believe.

It is easy look at only bad reasons to do it, not the good. I wouldn't mind it, think it would raise the focus during training camp. Just my opinion though.

any good reason to do it is the sole purpose of preseason games...which are in fact organized scrimmages.

@mortreport: Video evidence from fan, @ChadKopcak, appears to show Brady did have contact, Bucs DE Adrian Clayborn pushing LT Nate Solder into pocket

This is what happened to Brady, I have no desire to see Kerrigan or Orakpo try to do this to Cam.

 

Remember the hit Orakpo laid on Cam?  I still cringe at that one.

agreed.

 

the more i look, the vast majority of teams just don't do it. there's teams that used to do it, but most abandoned it. 

 

the OP's assumption is wrong on several levels.

the bad really outweighs the good, which is why most teams don't do it.
