Carolina Panthers Training Camp Update

Jul 28 2013 01:07 PM Zod Carolina Panthers
The Carolina Panthers had their first practice of 2013 in full pads. As expected, it was much more physical and fun to watch.

Kenjon Barner is quickly becoming my favorite rookie of 2013. His running style was a stark contrast to Deangelo Williams. Barner is hitting the hole much faster and has a quicker burst. This is something really to keep your eyes on as camp progresses.

Mike Shula has been very involved and vocal at practice. The players seem to be responding to him positively. So far, I don't see much difference than the offense Chud installed.

Overall the offensive line is losing in the run game. Lets just hope the Defensive line is just that good.

The defensive backs have been losing the majority of the battles. We are going to need someone to step up and start making progress quickly.

Olsen has shown a little rust, but also has made plays. I don't think it is anything to worry about.
Posted Image

Smitty continues to coach up AE on the sidelines. Its easy to see Smith likes him and sees potential there, or he wouldn't bother. Smith isn't shy about calling lazy players out.

Short had a solid day, showing much more strength and push than Fua ever has. I overheard an Offensive Lineman talking about Short. He mentioned Short being a "hands guy", eluding to how well Short plays with his hands, as important for a defensive lineman as his feet.

Cam would have been sacked multiple times today.

Come at me bro!

Does his helmet seem too small to you?
Posted Image

Overall, the QB's look pretty good. Jimmy appears to have lost a little arm strength to me, if thats possible.
Posted Image

Tolbert still appears to be Mr Dependable.
Posted Image

Lots of emphasis today on stripping the ball. At least 3 drills conducted, fine tuning it.
Posted Image

The Star-Amini battle today went to Star. Amini was unable to hold him at bay. Hard to do while laying on the ground.

Keep an eye on Brockel. He is having a really good camp, making lots of solid blocks. Will Shula be able to utilize him correctly?

Not really, have seen no difference. The camps are still much more relaxed than under Fox.

 

How do you feel about that anyway?

 

I don't know if I'm just over reacting, but that's always been bothersome to me. Coming into his third year, seat is as hot as ever and TC is still that relaxed?

 

I haven't been to any TCs - ever, so I'm just going off what's said. That being said, I'm having a hard time of thinking of too many positives of a relaxed TC.

Good writeup and great pics as always Zod, thanks!

I'm not sure if it reflects more Rivera or the CBA. Fox ran hard 2 a days. That's no longer allowed.

The tone though is not as serious or competitive overall. I think that's on Rivera.

the part about the o-line is concerning

I feel like thats gonna show up on the field.  I tweeted earlier today for you to keep an eye on Barner, sounds like he had a pretty good day today.  You agree?  

I feel like it takes the offensive line the longest to "gel" as a unit after an offseason.  Its almost like a ballet of 300+ pounders out there that have to be in sync and together at all time.  The defensive line obviously has gap assignments but nothing like the responsibilities that the OL has.

Morestead took a pretty good angle and is probably one of the more athletic punters in the league (4.8 40)

 

Heh, the angle of his pursuit was very small.  He simply ran faster than Armanti.  I don't doubt Morestead is very athletic for a punter though, to be able to chase down any PR (even AE) is quite a feat.

Just yesterday it was oh noes, star sucks. Just regular training camp..

 

That was my point.  Just the ebb and flow of practice (and the ebb and flow of fickle fans)

Do it for Hurney.

We better sign Mikell!

I hope we sign 2 offensive linemen first. That situation is looking more dire every day.

Nice job, Zod.

I was agreeing with you lol.

Just curious but where is Brockel seeing his time at, tight end or full back?

 

Mostly TE as they are not doing much I formation. He does motion into more of a FB position sometimes.

 

I wish we could just see what he can do in a straight I formation. All of this single back shotgun run game is starting to worry me.
