Re: DT situation.....

I think we purposely stayed very vanilla during the preseason. There's no way that there can be that big of a drop off on a team returning almost all of its starters. I have a funny feeling that philly is in for a big surprise on sunday.

Re: DT situation.....

I agree with you, Pantherman. I can't fathom the thought that we played such crappy football unless we intended to. We're not always a Pre-season highlight reel, so the thought that we actually played sparingly wouldn't surprise me. Hopefully it will the Eagles. I hope our D-Line looks night and day better Sunday, though.

Re: DT situation.....

I just have a hard time believing they played that poorly on purpose.  No tackling, fumbles, muffed punts, horrible pass protection can't all be a grand conspiracy by Fox to fool folks in the regular season.  Ockham's razor people: “all things considered, the simplest explanation is usually the right one.”  So ‘ol Foxy planned to play like crap on purpose to fool everyone or the Panthers are playing another year of uninspired, sloppy football.  Get ready for a long, long season.

Re: DT situation.....

I think they played like crap do to continuity issues with players being out and having a short pre-season.  I think the players feel they are pretty good based on last year and they feel they can turn it on during the regular season.  Fox probably doesn't feel as urgent to win this preseason as in the past also.  If he did they would have taken more chances with starters playing.  I hope they are able to turn it on come sunday.  The players who played the best this preseason are the ones who have something to prove.
