Donte Jackson Jersey On Sale
#1
While the defending champions are still a tough matchup any week they do not appear to be as strong as last season on either side of the ball. The running game lacks a number one running back with the loss of Jay Ajayi. Ajayi wasn’t tearing it up anyway. He ended his season with 184 yards on 43 carries. It’s not a bad average per carry (4.1 yards) but they typically found themselves behind early and therefore abandoned the running game. When I look at the Pro Football Focus grades for their defense I see their biggest weakness in the interior of the defensive line. So I’m hoping for some tough running up the middle followed up with deadly play action. Panthers offensive coordinator Norv Turner expressed a desire to generate more big plays in the passing game. That would seem to be a good strategy versus this Eagles team.On the other side of the ball the Eagles pass defense has been ripped by perimeter wide receivers. I therefore hope we see a lot of targets to wide receiver Devin Funchess and whoever starts across from him. That has been Torrey Smith but I would prefer it to be D.J. Moore or Curtis Samuel. For some reason I don’t think that will happen. Especially since Smith last played for the Eagles and therefore should know their weaknesses while also packing a little motivation.So in summary my three keys to the game for the Panthers to win.Effective running up the middle to set up play actionDeep passes to the perimeter wide receiversLimit passes to tight end Zack ErtzDo that and I think they have a chance. The draft is one month away and the free agency buzz has mostly fizzled out. Here’s a look at where the Panthers stand in the aftermath."The Carolina Panthers entered free agency with only one real pass rusher Donte Jackson Jersey For Sale , Mario Addison, and two offensive tackles, Taylor Moton and Matt Kalil, on their roster. They had no safeties to speak of. They had also had their generational, All-Pro center retire with no replacement in the wings. With limited cap space they managed to sign a defensive end, Bruce Irvin Donte Jackson Jersey On Sale , an offensive tackle, Daryl Williams, a center, Matt Paradis, and a safety, Eric Reid. The front office didn’t have the resources to completely fill every need Donte Jackson Jersey Sale , but they gave as much attention as they could to each hole while maximizing value with each signing. Frankly, they are in a better position than I expected them to be in with a month to go before the draft.The draft is the only real remaining opportunity for the Panthers to improve their roster. They probably have enough cap space to sign their rookies right now, but that’s about it. The rest of what they can do in free agency is churn the bottom of their roster with guys whose contracts won’t qualify as a Top 51 contract and thus won’t count against the cap.Where does that leave the Panthers?Still wanting pass rushers. The Panthers improved in free agency, assuming Williams can remain a healthy anchor for the right side of the offensive line, but they didn’t really change their needs. They still need at least one more defensive end, offensive tackle Replica Donte Jackson Jersey , and safety who can be expected to fill at least a rotational role. Their shrewdness in their free agency signings has lessened their needs and that allows them great flexibility to focus on their greatest one: defensive end.Yes, technically the Irvin signing gives them the flexibility to focus as much on interior pass rushers as edge rushers in the draft, but they already have talented guys on the interior. They need talent across the line if they are going to take that next competitive step to get back to actually winning play off games.
