Did Garry Williams start at RG last year against Seattle? I remember it looking pretty bad. But I think he'll be better this year

Good. Amini blows. I would take a out of shape Wharton over Amini.

Probably gonna rest Amini... It's not like we can risk putting him out there as it is. We have slim to no depth on that o-line. Good call imo not to play him if there's any slight doubt about his health.

Edit: it's gonna be a long season. We're going to need all they healthy players we can have come Feb

Per Jones, no green light yet for Tolbert Sunday.

 

Aw crap.

 

UPDATE:  RR Presser up on Panthers site and I heard no indication Tolbert wouldn't be ready.  May be a false alarm from JJ Twitter.

Rivera keeps talking about the end of the season last year on offense. He knows they screwed the pooch early.

 

Let's hope this means that if Shula craps the bed Rivera won't wait until week 6 to do something about it...

So Wharton wasn't able to cleanly beat Scott for the starting LG gig... yikes. 

 

This could just mean that Wharton isn't in good enough football shape yet to play a whole game... let's hope that's what it means.

Rivera's reaction when asked about it the other day was . . "Well he didnt pass the first physical so-" and kind of made a face like 'maybe but oh well if not'

Rivera made it seem like it was a lock.  I wouldn't worry one bit.
