Carolina Panthers Training Camp in Photos

Jul 27 2013 06:31 AM Zod Carolina Panthers
The Panthers opened camp to a smaller crowd than last season, but it was still one of the biggest crowds in the 19 year history of having camp in Spartanburg. The first day of camp is a lot like the first day of school. No real work is given, the goal is to ease into training camp mode. The players do not wear pads the first two days of camp per their collective bargaining agreement. Once the pads are on, which will happen Sunday I am told, expect more action and the real competition to begin.

Notice where the eyes of the coach are in this pic of the fullback and te blocking drills. His eyes are down at the feet in most of the pics. Tells you how important footwork is in blocking, more so than upper body strength.

Good to see Gettis out there participating. The knee brace a reminder of why he isn't our #2 guy.

Conditioning and strength drills for the wide receivers. Meant to maximize YAC.

Jimmy, I promise you it is open competition at starting QB. Everyone just calm down, no decisions have been made...

Although there were no pads, it seemed to me the defensive line had the advantage. They swarmed to the ball and closed gaps quickly. If they were allowed to tackle I am not certain the offense would have gained much on the ground.

Cam looked good overall. He had a few high throws, but for the most part was on target. Will be interesting to see if the high throws become more frequent once the pads are on and people are in his face.

Pilares looked great at times, not so good at others. Consistency has been his biggest issue so far as a Panther. That appears not to have changed.

Some players can do drills and chew gum at the same time.

I have high hopes for the offensive line this year. If we are to have any running game other than Cam they need to improve, big time.
Posted Image

People are already counting out Joe Adams. I think that may be a mistake. He caught everything thrown his way. Will he still have fumble issues once the pads are on?

Cam pounds it out with a young fan. He was laying down stretching and saw him. Cam teased the boy a bit telling him how much he wanted his sunglasses. The boy denied his request as Cam went over and greeted him. Cam is genuinely great with kids.

Star did not crack a smile the entire practice. He is the anti-Cam. Quiet, serious, I like that about him. Just get the job done young man.

Hope you enjoy the photos. I am heading down again on Sunday for another update.

Thanks as always!

 

 

Thanks amillion JIgo, I'm one who is actually excited about Joe Adams.

Wonder if Star is one of those who just has a "switch" when it comes to football, like Luke.

I am willing to bet yes. We all know growing up and playing sports it was the quiet confident guys that you had to fear the most. lol

Good stuff Zod.

Awesome job as always!

I'll be down there again today... I'll get the pics I can.

Here are a few I took... from the bleachers. LOL

I hate having to learn and relearn jersey numbers.
Nice job Daywalker.

Nice job thanks for posting pictures.

Good pics, excited to see who ends up starting at SS

silatolu has switched to #66. check the panthers.com video posted last night for an awesome 1-on-1 pass blocking drill he did against star lotulelei (silatolu dominated in that one particular shot, btw)

nice job zod

Hey Zod what where some of your observation about Kugbila during practice and if you can keep us up to date on how he and Bell are doing in run blocking and pass protection ..Thanks 

Thank you from those of us who can't make It to tc.

i had wanted to post that vid. He totally owned Star on that snap, made me worry about Star..

Thanks guys.

 

Quenches a bit of a thirst.

any opinions on how gaydosh  is doin,i know its early though

Excellent work Zod.

Why? Amini has the talent to be a great guard. We should expect a few growing pains from Star.

Because all that talk of a beastly front seven goes through Star.

Wait a minute. So you mean to tell me that Star in the very first day of his first ever NFL training camp with no pads did not disembowel the entire opposing line single handidly, while ripping out their still beating hearts?

Color me unimpressed. Bust alert!!!

woot! Thanks for the pictures everyone!

The leader of that front 7 is Kuechly, without a doubt. Then it becomes the CJ/Kraken show. Star is there, initially, to provide a capable body. He'll do great.

 

Besides, Amini has played in the pros for a year, going up against Gerald McCoy, etc. I'm sure he's seen a couple of things. He'll know how to handle a rookie like Star.

OMGZ GAIZ STAR IZ A BUZT1!!!!!!   D:
