Words to Remember

26 July 2014 - 02:39 PM

As the preparation for the 2014 Panthers season gets underway, I want to take a quick moment to revisit a quote from Michael Irvin, given as he was making the case for the Panthers drafting Kelvin Benjamin.

 

"You can scheme your defense to cover the field in every possible direction...except up."

 

 

 

Here's hoping the year to come highlights the truth of that statement.


Offensive Line Talk

Fan Fest is a place for fans to get autographs, watch Cam Newton throw to his new receivers and do the wave.

Few came to see how the offensive line meshed, but Panthers coach Ron Rivera kept an eye on it.

Carolina’s offensive line rotated several players with the first and second teams, though the Panthers’ first-string line remains static.

From left to right, Byron Bell, Amini Silatolu, Ryan Kalil, Trai Turner and Nate Chandler got the majority of first-team reps together Friday night, just as they did during June’s three-day minicamp.

Rivera isn’t necessarily putting much stock into the line’s performance until they get into pads on Sunday.

“It was tough to tell, but listening to them communicate and talk is important,” Rivera said. “I thought Kalil did a nice job.”

Kalil, one of the top centers in the league in his eighth year, is the most veteran player on the offensive line. While most eyes were on quarterback Cam Newton and his surgically repaired ankle, Kalil was focused on getting the calls with his younger linemen.

“I think in these practices you’re looking for ability to pick up the scheme,” Kalil said. “It’s a big playbook, a lot of information is being thrown around early on, so you’re looking at how guys are playing.

“You don’t really ABC it. We’re getting pretty down-the-line (defensive) looks right out of the gate, so it’s a good way to see how guys adapt and how they work things out on the fly in high-game speed.”

Of the young guys around him, Kalil said Turner stood out the most. The Panthers drafted Turner out of Louisiana State in the third round of this year’s draft, and Turner turned 21 just last month.

He’s gotten the majority of reps at right guard since minicamp.

“He’s so young and he’s doing such a good job,” Kalil said.

 

 

 


Home Run Casting Choices in Comic Book Movies

Who do you consider the best casting choices ever made in a comic book movie?

 

I'd start it off with this guy...

So good the makers of the reboot would rather pretend the character doesn't exist than try to follow his performance.

 

Others?

Former Panther News

Word that the Vikes have placed Captain Munnerlyn on their preseason PUP list.

 

Tough offseason for former Panthers, it seems.  Giants did the same to Jon Beason just a short time back.
