Preseason Primer - Texans at Panthers

Aug 08 2012 07:31 AM Zod Carolina Panthers
Texans at Panthers
Saturday August 11
Bank of America Stadium

Last game Dec18, 2011 Panthers won easily 28-13

Things to watch:

Captain Munnerlyn: Much like Chris Gamble last off season, taking a lot of heat from fans on poor play. Gamble stepped up, will Captain?

Amini Silatolu: Currently the only starting rookie on the depth chart (Although I suspect Luke Kuechly will start come game time). It is possible he could single handedly improve our run game a great deal.

Armanti Edwards: Having the best camp of his career. Will it translate when it counts, or is he a practice player?

Joe Adams: Could overtake Armanti's punt return duties quickly with a couple of good runbacks.

Battle of Kickers: If Mare misses field goals he may not make it through the preseason. Panthers have been impressed with Medlock.

Defensive Tackles: Starting jobs here are still up for grabs. McClain and Edwards are listed as the starters, but that may not be the case come the regular season.

The home crowd: Following the largest fan fest turnout since 1996, will Bank of America stadium be rocking in the preseason?

What are Texans fans saying?

The worst thing is when Cam just runs 10 yards and lays down so we got like no hits on him at all. It's hard to stop that when you cannot hit him. The way you stop a running QB is to make him scared to run it a lot.


Upsets will happen, no doubt, but losses to the Panthers & Colts was inexcusable IMO. Cam is a very good qb, but good teams put bad teams away regardless of officials making a couple of bad calls. Don't leave it in the officials hands & there won't be an issue. Just saying...

Yeah, Bullock is Medlock without morning coffee

Texans were average until Manning went down, now that division just sucks.

JOAT I think you either mean that the AFC south was average until Manning went down, or that the Texans were average until Schaub went down.


Either way your right.
Their forum looks so busch league
The message I'm getting at the Texans site:

No need to troll the Texans.
They are very similar to us in their frustrations through the year.
Maybe more so.
They activated my account. Time to have some fun. >:D
Perusef their forums before our game last year. Never seen a more disrespectful and ignorant fanbase than I did that week. Best part was that was just one of those weeks where I knew we were gonna win and watching their forum implode after we stomped them was amazing.
Should Houston win this preseason game, someone please find the first Texans mouth-breather that proclaims their loss to us last season has been avenged and copy that here.

It'll be good for a chuckle.
throw in pro bowl treatment toward Cam, and it'll be a fun game.

When these two teams get together, whoa Nelly!
I'm being nice to them for now, though I'm going to prod them in the ribs at least once a day till saturday. If we win I'm going to become notorious on their board, let's just say that.
The Huddle got a plug from Pat Y on ESPN

Carolina Huddle has a list of things to watch in Saturday’s preseason game between the Panthers and Texans. One item on that list is the battle between kickers Olindo Mare and Justin Medlock. I think this competition is tighter than people realize. Medlock has been having an excellent camp and the veteran Mare needs to redeem himself after missing too many field goals last season.
