Default What do you want/hope to see Saturday night ?

* Me for one i want to see a crisp clean 1st team offense move the ball down the field with ease. Show some continuity from last season before Schaub went down.

* See a healthy Schaub and AJ that look good.

* See a dominate first team defense.

BUT what i want to see MOST is L. Jean. I think he is #2 by seasons end.

No injuries first of all. I want players on both teams to come out healthy. I'm actually really interested in seeing Cam Newton again. I think he's a dark horse MVP candidate this year and he certainly troubled our defense last year. It'll be interesting to see how the new o-line does and also Whitney Mercilus.

I hope my concerns for the WR position are somewhat alleviated. I hope my concerns for the OL are alleviated. I am looking forward to seeing Tate and Forsett. I am looking forward to watching the kick return team.

Default Re: What do you want/hope to see Saturday night ?

1. No injuries, that's a given for all of us.

2. Can this Houston team limit Cam Newton enough to at least not get embarrassed on his opening drive? I mean, seriously, we held Mike Vick in check not too long ago and almost won that game... but guys like VY and Garrard, the guys who run the ball once coverage downfield has drifted far from the LOS, they eat us up. Cam did too. Can we learn, can we hold him back???

3. Keyshawn Martin. Period.

4. LBs. Will Bradie James call the game the way Wade says he can? Will we miss DeMeco not being there? How will Reed and Braman look, because they might have sophomore slumps IMO. Not worried about the other LBs, tbh.

5. Kicking competition. Look, just like there was a couple years ago here, between Rackers and Brown...Kubiak will have us kicking FGs a lot (rather than trying risky plays on long 3rd downs when the ball is already in FG position). He has got to see Graham and Bullock kick a few times each game to get a grasp on their handling of game time kicks from different distances.

6. O-Line. Not worried about Center or left side. How will the right side hold up, and how well can Brooks and Newton perform when we know they're going to be battling the Panthers' own 2nd or 3rd stringers??? Not going to see Brooks and Newton against a team's 1st string defensive line group, folks...so how will those two guys' performance shake out when we know it's against 2nd or 3rd stringers in the first place? Plus, IF they bomb badly against 2nd or 3rd stringers out there...does that cause our sacks to shrivel up a bit? Maybe it does. That's a crucial situation for us, folks. CRUCIAL.

7. QBs. Will Matt even play at least one series? How will TJ do? How will Beck and Keenum perform?

8. RBs. Forsett is getting lots of publicity thus far. Want to see him in a game situation. Grimes too.

9. FB and TEs. Norris-Smith-Casey...hmmmmm.....a mystery to me. Graham, can he deliver like Dreessen did? I dunno. Will have to hope he can.

10. Kubiak. Can he bear to watch his kickers' kicks or will he turn away and watch the replays later on? LOL. Old habits die hard.

I want to see one drive where Schaub looks effective, and doesn't look like he's bothered by the foot.

Then I don't want to see him any more.

Default Re: What do you want/hope to see Saturday night ?

I'm curious to see how the defensive back battle is going to shake out. I'm guessing we have 5 locks at CB with Joseph, KJ, McCain, Harris, and Roc. McManis, Ball, and Williams are going to fight it out and I want to see who will step up.

At Safety I think we're set but you never know. I think we'll roll with Manning, Glover, Demps, and Nolan. Seems like a no brainer, but Keo was good on special teams when he got his chances. Pleasant seems like an interesting prospect even though he'll have to work on his coverage skils. They'll have to be great to make the 53 man over Demps, who had a very nice year for us last year when he came back.

There are SO many things I want to see Saturday, including a lot of the backups and rooks. The thing that worries me most, is how well the offense is going to play. For some reason, I have no doubt at all the defense will do well, so it's the offense that worries me.

Having said that, now the defense will look horrid and the offense will be going up and down the field all night. LOL

I want to see no injuries. I'd like to see a first unit that hasn't missed a beat offensively and defensively. I'd like to see the right side of our Oline pave a good drive for Arian Foster and I'd like to see anyone playing the OLB and MLB (Brooks Reid, Braman, the new guy from the Cowboys) positions vacated by Mario and Demeco take ownership of the position.

I've got to be honest and admit that what I'd really like to see is some LB of ours smack the snot out of Cam Newton. No injuries. Absolutely do nothing but make the Panthers go "Oooooo, scary! Get him out of there" and then on with the 2nd & 3rd string show.

But of course no injuries is first.

Then all the usual stuff. The first team running smoothly, Keshawn living up to his billing, Forsett having great outing when he comes in. All the usual things.

Default Re: What do you want/hope to see Saturday night ?

Since I doubt we see a lot of Panthers blitzes, pass protection will probably not be tested. Conversely, any sacks given up have to be really big red flags. We probably will see weird playcalling where they are trying work on specific elements of the offense rather than attacking the Panthers defens. This will make it interesting trying to figure out what they are working on, and if they are satisfied with the results. I doubt the SOB (son of bum) is going to bust out his blitz packages so any pressure we get on Cam, Pickles, and their other QB will be based on effort and technique, not scheme though. No Crick is a little deflating as he was a rookies I was generally interested in seeing, but I do think we will see a decent amount of Mercilus.

I'll be looking to see what kind of jump Yates made in the offseason. Like everyone else I am super excited to see Martin play, I got a good feeling about that kid.

On defense I'm going to key in on Mercilus and I'm also curios to see how Bradie James looks out there.
