There are just 13 days until the Panthers kick off the 2018 regular season. Today’s player is wide receiver Jarius Wright.Jarius Wright Womens Devin Funchess Jersey
, Wide receiverBioHeight: 5’10”Weight: 190 lbsAge: 28College: ArkansasNFL Experience: 7 yearsWright was a 4th round draft pick for the Vikings in 2012. He spent his entire career in Minnesota before coming to the Carolinas as a free agent this season. The Panthers will be looking at him to fill several roles. In tandem with teammate Torrey Smith, Wright will be expected to provide a steadying, veteran presence on the field and in the locker room for the Panthers’ otherwise very young wide receiver group. He will also hopefully provide the additional benefit of being an extra coach on the field, as he has several years of experience working with freshman offensive coordinator Norv Turner during their shared time with the Vikings.Wright hasn’t made a strong impact in the preseason, but he has turned a few heads during training camp. He can be expected to be a reliable target for Cam Newton out of the slot and possibly an upgrade as the pitchman in triple option looks over the Panthers’ last elder statesman wide receiver to see time in that role, Jerricho Cotchery. Speaking of Cotchery, here’s to hoping that Wright Womens James Bradberry Jersey
, too, gets the opportunity to be screwed out of a game changing catch by refs in the Super Bowl this year. I am still shocked the Panthers walked away with a win today. After being thoroughly dominated, the team woke up and overcame a 17 point deficit to beat the defending Super Bowl champs at home. Here’s the players who helped, and the ones that didn’t.WinnersTorrey SmithSmith hasn’t become a top wide receiver by any stretch, but over the last two games he’s absolutely showed up when the team needed it. He caught 4 passes for 61 yards, including a key catch and run on 4th and 10 for the Panthers final, lead changing drive on offense. He’s been often maligned by Panthers fans Youth DJ Moore Jersey
, but over the last two weeks he’s turned it on in a big way on key drives. Cam Newton trusts him, and it appears he’s finally found his groove.Michael PalardyDespite a crazy wind during this game, Palardy consistently pinned Philadelphia in their own territory after punts. He gave the kicks enough hang time that his speedster Curtis Samuel was able to get down there and down the punts inside the five when he had his opportunities. Of all players, Palardy showed up from start to finish more than anyone else. Palardy continues to demonstrate why his extension was well deserved.Mario AddisonDespite going out early with a back injury, Addison was by far Carolina’s most consistent presence on the defensive line. He logged two sacks (though one was a simple miscue by Carson Wentz) and continued to get pressure on the outside. If Addison were to miss a significant amount of time, this defense would struggle to rush the passer.4th Quarter Cam NewtonNewton struggled for the large majority of the game, as the Eagles came after him early and often. However Youth Trai Turner Jersey
, after Curtis Samuel lit a fire under this offense, we saw Cam Newton let loose. He threw several beautiful passes at the end of the game and was on fire during the comeback effort. Cam may not be the most consistent quarterback, but he is one of the best when he’s in do or die mode.Luke Kuechly and Thomas DavisKuechly hasn’t quite been the dominant force we know this season, but in this game he seemed to inch his way back. Davis meanwhile, continues to play angry. The defense as a whole didn’t play great, but these two made momentum shifting tackles when the defense absolutely needed them. Looking forward to at least one last hurrah for this amazing duo.LosersField goal unitCome on man, they let not one but two field goals get away due to mental mistakes. Can you imagine what the game would have looked like with two field goals on the board? Two weeks ago Youth Cam Newton Jersey
, the field goal unit bailed out the offense. This week, the fourth quarter offense bailed out the field goal unit.James BradberryAlshon Jeffrey put the hurt on Bradberry today. He consistently got open and consistently got catches. Were it not for one good play by Bradberry in the 4th, Alshon would have all but silenced this team’s attempt at a comeback. The Panthers put a lot on Bradberry as their CB1, but this wasn’t the worst matchup he’s faced yet he got beat worse than he has all season.CoachingBruh. It took a herculean effort by Cam Newton and this offense in the end to win this game. This is the 3rd straight week that Carolina has beaten themselves with bad coaching. It shouldn’t require a two digit deficit to turn Cam Newton loose, and why is Michael Adams covering Zach Ertz? They figured it out in the end, against a good team at that, but this is three straight weeks of slow starts by the offense. This defense can no longer bail them out http://www.panthersfootballauthentic.com/mike-adams-jersey-authentic
, the offense needs to score points. Good things happen when Curtis Samuel and DJ Moore are on the field. Use your weapons, it isn’t that hard.
