OTA thoughts and musings - week 3

Sure, but Daley being the best LT early isn't a good sign. No one here, nor any expert expected that.  It's definitely a cause for concern. We need everyone to get healthy and some a positive sign there.

Not sure if we can go that far yet. First, after watching Moton in the few games he had to replace Williams when he was hurt a couple years ago, I’d put him up as the best LT we have if they just let him spend an entire offseason there. Second, it’s voluntary OTAs and you don’t know exactly what they are trying to do. If Erving is out and Scott played LT last year, maybe they want to see how Daley does. Daley and Little are definitely on the bubble based on last year so I wouldn’t worry too much until the pads go on. I’m not going to say I loved our OL off-season though as it’s got a lot of hope built in.

To be fair, at this time of year the defense should look better than the offense. And that's even true of teams that don't have a new quarterback.

Absolutely.  Defense almost always outshines Offense in early season camps, regardless of the team.

Offense is a big dance where everyone has to learn the steps.  That group coordination takes time & practice.  Defense is far more "read & react" which favors raw athleticism.

I dont understand why Ian Thomas can't put it all together yet. Even Ed Dickson stepped up and dropped 175 yards that one time. That was a fun game. Ian makes him look like an all pro.

Maybe he just doesn't have the necessary desire and drive to make it work at the NFL level. Something is missing, that much is certain.

Well, to be fair, they literally didn't cover Dickson in that game. I mean, he was streaking down the field wide ass open.

No but the Carolina coaching staff sure sees it.  And coaches are a big fraternity who are networked with each other.  So you don't want to have a reputation as a lazy guy or poor worker.   It could affect whether another team takes a chance on you or not.  

Other teams hear about it like we  here did.  When he's cut, they'll call and ask Rhule about him.  It's just a bad play for Thomas.

zod has been asked about it numerous times since his initial post and his total avoidance of the subject gives me a uneasy feeling about it overall

 

One week ago, in his OTA report Zod said this

"Sam Darnold looked as good as any Panthers QB in OTAs I have seen. Throws were mostly good and on target. Not perfect, but they never are at this point in the season. There is a giant drop off between him and the next man up."

Sure but we are talking about his play yesterday
