I want to see Clausen play an extended period of time. See some more of Barner. Watch the scrubbies play.

Honestly if there were just a bunch of trained possums playing, if they are wearing the Panthers uniform I am going to watch em.

Really sucks as a fan (especially a psl owner) to have the 1st and 4th preseason games be the home ones.

 

The 4th game is going to suck since we will only see the starters for 1-2 drives max if at all.

 

There are some decisions that can be influenced by this game but its just mainly going to be the bottom feeders/ practice squad candidates having 1 last chance to earn a spot.

I will be back in the country and might actually go to this game. I'll gladly pay next to nothing for a ticket to see the scrubs.

Not unusual. Most teams know the initial list of who's staying and who's going right after game three.

Don't be surprised if other teams make their cuts prior to Tuesday as well.

If he is holding his cards, it would be idiotic to show them in the 4th preseason game and give the Seahawks a heads up

Come on, we all know Shula has already showed his hand and the offense will be terrible.

Seriously, I don't think Shula has shown anything but formations. There is one play I can think of that we ran that can be scouted and that was the Lafell TD. Besides that we ran one play out of the pistol suggesting we will have a pistol formation, but that is all we know. Since we still have Chuds play book , Cam, and Dwill coming off a 200 yard game I'm optimistic. Actually maybe more so than before the Ravens game simply because I realized how little we were showing. The defense could just pin their ears back and get after Cam without fear of being beat by a screen, draw, or play action or Cam really trying to run.

Unlike the Patriots offensive shutdown, we have all those wrinkles to help cam escape pressure and slow down the pass rush. I'm not as worried as most people on here and I'm sure the people in the Foxhole.

I don't buy that Shula has already shown his cards.

Admittedly though, I do worry that the hand he's holding back may just be a pair of threes :(

In the  Pat Yasinkas chat Friday he said we ran a lot of different plays/formations that we haven't show yet in preseason.

Ok, cam dipping his head and dropping straight back is not new. Maybe the routes the receivers ran, but in the grand scheme of our offense, there wasn't much to see.

Do you really think Shula would keep dropping Cam back on 5 step drops when he knows the defense is sending 5 everytime? No, we would run a screen or draw plays or even an inside screen to the slot receiver to take up the area vacated by the linebackers. We didn't show anything of strategic value. It still seemed scripted to me. Plus, the general consensus seems be be any reporter talking about us is generally speaking out of their arse.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
