Game is at 8:00 PM this Friday night.
Players to watch:
Josh Norman - I REALLY want to see him. He had a sore hamstring so he didn't play the last game, now he'll be playing and showing what he's made of. I fully expect him to be our #2 CB when we play Tampa Bay. Norman had four interceptions in practice yesterday, the first day back since last week.
Luke Kuechly - He played great last game as a rookie, hopefully we can see how he plays with the guy I am talking about next.
Jon Beason - Like Norman, he had a sore hamstring so he didn't play the other game. This will be his first game (regular or preseason) since he ruptured his achilles vs Arizona (season opener) last year. He will not play long, if at all. But hopefully he'll play and look good.
Louis Murphy - Hopefully we'll see some Cam to Murphy this game. Murphy played really well last game with Derek Anderson throwing him the ball, now let's see what he does with Cam.
Our Kickers. Justin Medlock and Olindo Mare - Ron Rivera said that the Panthres will decide on which kicker they are keeping after the next preseason game (PS3). Medlock has been dominant kicking the ball in TC where as Mare has been average to below average. Hopefully we get rid of Mare who cost us two wins last season.
Brad Nortman - Yep! I am more intersted in our punters and kickers than I am intersted in seeing Cam. Nortman has been AMAZING in camp so far, 6+ second hang time and dominant. Unless something crazy happens he'll be making the roster.
Gary Barnidge - He played bad last game and in camp, and because of that he is now fighting for a roster spot. Greg Olsen is the sure fire number one, Ben Harstock, Barnidge, and Richie Brockel are fighting for one or two spots at TE.
