Captain Munnerlyn says it's good to be back at Wofford College and among his former Panthers' teammates. The Buffalo Bills defensive back says he won't take a shot at Cam Newton, a player he loved to jaw with while at Carolina, but added, ‘'I'm going to talk some sh— though.''

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton gave former teammate Captain. Munnerlyn a little grief about having to wear No. 26 for Buffalo. Munnerlyn says he already has a deal to get his familiar 41 back. He also had some advice for Newton after the joint practice: ‘'I told him he had to get off the ball a little faster.''

Panthers' camp observations: 1. Buffalo's defense got a taste of Curtis Samuel's rare speed early as Cam Newton dropped a 50-yard pass into the arms of his receiver, who beat Tre'Davious White badly down the middle. Could Samuel emerge as Newton's No. 1 receiver?; 2. Newton was hot on his first two-minute drill, completing five straight underneath passes before being intercepted in the end zone. He came right back, though, with a TD pass to TE Greg Olsen; 3. CB Donte Jackson had arguably the play of the day defensively for Carolina, breaking up a deep pass to Zay Jones; 4. Sadly, former Carolina defensive back Captain Munnerlyn wasn't working with Buffalo's first team. Other than a pre-practice shouting match with Newton over him wearing No. 26 instead of his normal 41 their trash-talking was minimal; 5. The threat to kick players out of practice if they fought worked. Other than a hard hit from Buffalo's Maurice Alexander that got him the next play off players maintained their poise.

Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen says ‘'I'm not mad at comparisons at all'' to Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. The comparisons are natural since both are 6-foot-5 and came out of college with strong arms and a unique ability to use their legs. Allen says he's actually learned something watching Newton go from a ‘'mobile quarterback to one that runs when necessary.''

Buffalo defensive back Captain Munnerlyn sees a big difference in Cam Newton's arm strength now and from the end of last season when the 2015 NFL MVP struggled to throw deeper than 30 yards. A 50-yard pass to Curtis Samuel early in a joint practice against the Panthers was a good sign.

Yep... and honestly I think we've seen enough of him in preseason to feel confident his game is up to NFL speed.

Hoping the team is going to be cautious about this ankle injury.  It's already going to be a long season for a rookie who is used to only playing 12-13 games, especially since I'm hoping we're going to play in 19-20 this year.

Just don't want to wear him down... Save those reps for someone like Christian Miller who obviously is still getting up to speed.

does anyone know why Cam gave Munnerlyn a hard time for wearing #26? I know he is normally 41, I guess he in a way is saying, he wasnt good enough to get his old number back?

    • I want the old Luke back he looked bad last year and last game he couldn’t get off any blocks and over running the plays again 
    • It is on Manhertz, it's also on Cam. Cam couldn't handle the jailbreak blitzes they were throwing at the team. They simply sent more rushers than there were blockers. When that happens there is always one or more uncovered receivers, the QB has to find them, fast, and fire. If you win it, you probably score big. If you lose, it's a sack. Most QBs coming  off of  their break aren't up to game speed yet and Cam didn't pass the test. The point is, those kind of  blitzes are rarely done in the preseason, kind of a gentleman's agreement between coaches to keep from getting  QBs injured. Guess what Belichick does? He goes after your weaknesses no matter when it is. He doesn't play by unwritten rules (or written ones when it suits him). And now we have an injured QB. If you really look at the original play in question, the jailbreak blitz is obvious with seven men rushing the line and an eighth joining in quickly after the snap. Before the snap, Cam sees the situation, calls an audible and begins to drop back. His drop back is deep and he realizes the pressure has broken with Manhertz getting beat to the outside. Others were getting  beat and gaps were being shot. He starts to scan but doesn't get enough time to find his hot read. Sack. I'm chalking it up partially to Manhertz who I don't think is really that great of a blocking TE, and to Cam who in later season form would have dropped back two steps and shot the tight gap to Manhertz's left and made a few yards. He may have also been able to catch his hot read with a fast pass.  It's preseason, though, and the team isn't playing up to game speed yet. The Patsies came in gunning for him. They sacked him there and eventually hurt Cam in the preseason yet again. I'm sure Belichick puts that as a positive in his ledger for how the season plays out.
