Panthers Info

Recommended Posts

Sorry it's taken me so long to post, but the news is a bit thin lately.


As you all know, Jenkins is out for the year. This is horrible news for the entire defense. Coach Fox hasn't announced the new starter yet, but it looks like Jordan Carstens or Kindall Moorehead. Rookie Attiyeh Ellison will be activated off the practice squad as well. Carstens will probably get the start, but they could platoon. Neither scares anyones opposing lineman. This means the double teams will neutralize Buckner, and the lack of interior push will also affect Peppers and Rucker. I wouldn't recommend anyone off the line other than Peppers.


The secondary could get torched this weekend by the short passing game of the Patriots. Lucas and Gamble are both afraid to play tight on the line, because the team is not ready to leave rookie Thomas Davis on an island in the secondary. I expect a decent day all around by the Patriots passing offense.


Linebackers are no change, Start Morgan with confidence as he should lead the team in tackles this week.

Swampnuts, I didn't get a chance to catch the game, with the exception of the last few minutes of the 4th quarter.


Which of the two CB's looked better?


Which of the two look better to you?


It was my hope that Lucas would provide more of a shutdown role, leaving Gamble as the guy teams would try to exploit...not because he's bad, but obviously that would generate more FF activity for one of my guys.


Are they equal in your mind?


I would assume the loss of Jenkins may allow the Pats and other teams to start putting some helmets on the LB's as well, which may diminish some of their numbers.
