Well isn't that just freakin great. Way to be a team leader Steve.

So I really see no way that we beat SD in week 1. We should still take care of the Bears because come one, it's the Bears lol.


You don't think that Moose will be able to step into Steve Smith's shoes for the SD game adequately enough to win?

With all respect to Moose, we're talking about Steve Smith here, maybe the best WR in the game. I think we would have had a hard time beating SD with Steve but without him, damn it's going to be a freakin uphill battle.

Wow I couldn't remember how to sticky a thread lol good work Timmeh

SPARTANBURG The impact of Friday's punch-out can still be felt at the Carolina Panthers training camp, and to pretend otherwise is to be a fool.

ESPN was on the televisions in the team dining hall Monday night, and when the commentators began to talk about Steve Smith and Ken Lucas, the Panthers noticed. Before the situation became too uncomfortable, a veteran made a veteran move and turned down the sound.

While forgive and forget does not apply to every Panther, especially those who play defense, each practice since Friday has become a little louder, the chatter at each meal a little looser and lighter.

Although Smith's cheap shots attracted international attention – I got an e-mail from a reader who read about it in England – there's a more important story going on. Carolina has had, Friday excepted, an exceptional camp.

Despite humidity that could make a mannequin sweat, enthusiasm and confidence are intact. The Panthers think they have something.

I've covered all 14 of their training camps, and this has (or had) been among the best. Almost every session has featured a virtuoso performance, and they haven't all been by receiver Jason Carter.

Carter, who spent most of last season on Carolina's practice squad, distinguished himself at the first practice and has yet to stop. I admit that when I discover a player, it is conceivable I overreact.

So let the facts speak. You saw him catch the 13-yard touchdown pass at Fan Fest on Saturday. You probably did not see him catch the deep touchdown pass Monday night from Matt Moore. I don't even see why defensive backs try to cover him, I really don't.

As good as Carter, 25, is, he's had help.

Defensive end Julius Peppers, whom you remember from 2006, has been strong. Receiver and return man Ryne Robinson was until he hurt his knee last week.

A coach tells me the rookies have been outstanding. When I mention running back Jonathan Stewart and offensive tackle Jeff Otah, he immediately says, “And (safety) Charles Godfrey.”

Quarterback Jake Delhomme is 33 and coming off major elbow surgery. Yet he has zipped the ball and still is as excitable as he was when he arrived in 2003. And that's good.

Two other receivers, D.J. Hackett and Muhsin Muhammad, have had fine camps. Muhammad was a leader the moment he returned from his three-season sojourn to the Midwest, and he broke free to catch a touchdown pass Tuesday afternoon in the right corner of the end zone.

When kickoff specialist Rhys Lloyd sinks his foot into the ball, the impact sounds different. I heard Andre Agassi hit tennis balls at Olde Providence Racquet Club. Nobody told me which court he was on. I could tell by the sound. It's the same with Lloyd.

Linebacker Thomas Davis has been very good, more instinctive than in summers past. Linebacker Landon Johnson, a former starter for Cincinnati, has played like a starter.

Until he hurt his leg, defensive tackle Damione Lewis looked especially quick. I think it was the one spin class he took this spring at the Ballantyne YMCA.

The most dazzling player has been running back DeAngelo Williams. He reads his blocks beautifully, changes directions instantly and finds room where none appears to exist.

Coaches and officials praise two units – the cornerbacks and the offensive line.

“Ninety-one has had a real good camp,” a coach says.

Who is 91? Ninety-one, should we know you?

“No,” says Gary Gibson.

Gibson, a defensive tackle, was on the practice squad most of last season. He's 26, played at Rutgers and was out of football in 2006.

“I trained to be a financial consultant,” he says Tuesday. “It wasn't great, working in an office and looking at everybody and thinking, ‘Is this really what I want to do?' I was really missing the camaraderie and the guys and all that. I wasn't ready to be done.”

Despite Friday's unfortunate sideshow, the Panthers aren't, either.

Lost of good information in there. I am psyched about this new kicker. I can't remember how man times the other team got good field position because we didn't kick the ball into the endzone.

It's been difficult to pull away from some of the Olympic games to do anything else today. Who would have thought that moving to North Carolina would make me more of a sports fan than just for the Clippers? Must be something in the water...........

Have barely watched any of the Olympics so far. I watched us get beat by Latvia in Men's Volleyball and got absolutely pissed because we supposedly have the #1 player in the world. I watched a little bit of the Australia Women's Basketball last night just to get my basketball fix.

I was disappointed, too, with our men's volleyball performance but I think it was the first Olympics for both our guys so hopefully they'll improve. I loved watching our women's volleyball team.

What do you think about our Panthers?

Julius Peppers and DeAngelo Williams look to have a promising season. Troy(?) Birmingham also looks promising.

Aside from Delhomme--what do y'all think about the other quarterbacks?

Matt Moore is going to be a great quarterback. Bret Basanez had some troubles tonight.

Agreed. The quarterback vying for the 3rd spot, I should remember his name because he played during the second half of the third quarter and the entire fourth quarter--Lester____--shows promise. He had some lapses in judgment but mostly he threw right on target. Basanez, though, handled his 14-yard carry with confidence. So I guess we'll see how things pan out. I'm very excited about the season.
