I can't help but feel trepidation after watching the last couple of preseason games - particularly on the offense. Yes I know they are preseason. Yes I know we aren't opening the playbook. But I have to say the offense looks way behind just like last preseason and I'm afraid we're going to get off to that same, slow start we do every year under Rivera. I'm especially concerned about Cam's play. Similar high passes sailing over receivers heads and pocket jitters. It's year 3 now. Shouldn't he be more accurate by now and have better pocket presence???? Sure I know the offensive line isn't top notch which brings up another point - we are just an injury or two away from having a complete disaster to our offensive line. I'll stay positive and hope that Cam and crew get their game face on at the start of the regular season. I just hope we don't start out like we've done the last few years. Rivera won't make it out of week 4 if that happens...

yes. the panthers are going to go 0-16. ron rivera will turn into a cyborg and blow up the stadium with lasers from his dick. charlotte will fall into a bottomless black hole and north carolina will literally explode into a greasy fireball of bojangles and ruined dreams. we are all going to die. prepare yourself.

I really think you are exaggerating.

as a general rule, I prefer not to worry until I see the games that actually count

I know people are going to blow up on you but I actually agree...they didnt look good.  I know the arguments but a lot of other teams looked much better with their starting squad.  Might not mean anything, but it doesnt change the fact that they didnt look that good.

This is the greatest post for preseason "chicken littles" that I have ever seen.  Dank-U mista.  Thank you!

you can worry all you want, but the fact is, it is pointless because you have no say or control in what happens.  we can only go along for the ride.  i tend to limit my worries to personal life where i at least have some input or control.

 

i like rivera okay, but i dont like the fact the new GM had no say in the coach.  that is what bugged me more than anything this offseason.

Knew I was going to flamed for starting this... OK I'll say it - I have no confidence we are going to get off to this 'fast start' that everyone is hoping for. I frankly have no confidence in Rivera after seeing the same old crap last couple games training camp. Cam getting picked left and right, overthrowing receivers. Don't have much confidence in him either right now. Cam + Rivera = LOSING GAMES!! Change either one and maybe we can get somewhere but I see a disaster heading our way until then. We are going to effing SUCK! Flame away!!!!

Why do people make this assumption that when someone says, "hey the panthers haven't looked sharp, and haven't really had any consistency" that this is the response?

 

Is that honestly what you think the OP was worried about or are you just being a d bag?  Because its hard to tell sometimes.

 

Me personally, until the panthers show me a reason NOT to be concerned then I am.  I'm not concerned with the front 7, or Norman's development, or our wide receivers, BUT I am concerned about the offensive line and Cam's accuracy and decision making.  He could have hit smith on a long play on third down and he simply made a terrible throw.  That's not a preseason thing or playing vanilla, or not game planning...that's a Cam thing and it has been for a while.
