So we are finally here, to the point every NFL http://www.officialpiratessale.com/josh-harrison-jersey-c-1_11.html fan longs for during the needlessly long preseason. Here are 10 questions the Carolina Panthers need to answer for themselves – and their fans – on Opening Day starting at 4:25 p.m. on Sunday in California when they play the San Francisco 49ers.
1. Is Cam Newton’s arm sound?
The surgically repaired shoulder appeared to be OK this week in practice, but Newton has barely taken his golden right arm out for a test drive all through August. I have no doubt he will stay in the game and try to make every throw Sunday. “No limits,” head coach Ron Rivera has decreed. But will Newton’s arm hold up for that – not only Sunday, but for the season? And can he shake off the rust and get the ball out of his hands quickly and effectively enough to avoid the poundings he so often takes?
2. Is the offensive line sturdy?
Nowhere did the Panthers falter more in the drop from 15-1 in 2015 to 6-10 in 2016 than on the O-line, where everything begins on every offensive play. The biggest thing to watch is whether Matt Kalil will get it done at left tackle.
But I also wonder about older brother Ryan. The Pro http://www.officialredsprostore.com/todd-frazier-jersey-c-1_25.html Bowl center barely played in the preseason and is essential.
3. Does the defensive backfield still have big issues?
Brian Hoyer is not Drew Brees or Tom Brady, whom the Panthers will face in Weeks 3 and 4, respectively. But he’s not bad, either. In 200 throws with Chicago last season, Hoyer had six TD passes and zero interceptions.
