Panthers 2018 season opener countdown: 75 days to go

We are 75 days away from the beginning of the Carolina Panthers 2018 season. That means today we take a closer look at our de facto left tackle Color Rush Shaq Thompson Jersey , who is supposedly going to be better than ever this year, number 75 Matt Kalil.Matt Kalil, Offensive TackleBioHeight: 6’7”Weight: 315 lbsAge: 28College: University of Southern California (you’re welcome Gamecocks)NFL Experience: 6 yearsMatt Kalil is a common topic here on CSR for all kinds of reasons. Debates over whether he gets too much shade from fans or not enough, whether he will be better this year due to finally being healthy, all sorts of things. But in the end , the fact remains that he will be out starting left tackle for the upcoming season, and probably for the next one as well. That is in part due to his contract situation, but also because the Carolina Panthers have no one that can feasibly replace him.Since the departure of Jordan Gross, the left tackle position has been largely ignored by the team, and always to our detriment. Michael Oher did a pretty good job for us for one season Youth Greg Olsen Jersey , but unfortunately met the end of his career directly following that. Matt Kalil represents the best of a bad situation where the Panthers had to find serviceable help in an inflated free agent market. At the time, David Gettleman took a risk on talented youth that had yet to develop the way he should. Maybe the best days for Matt Kalil are still ahead, and as fans, we should absolutely hope that is the case. If he can at least be average, we can have a great season on offense. However Youth Ryan Kalil Jersey , if he repeats last years effort which was often poor, things are likely not going to go well. The 2-1 Panthers sat idle during their Week 4 bye but in many respects still saw their season outlook improve. Here are five ways Carolina “won” their bye week: They signed Eric ReidThe Panthers clearly needed more than Colin Jones to replace injured starting safety, Da’Norris Searcy. Reid should be a solid starter and shore up a position of need. The Falcons lostThe Atlanta Falcons dropped a soul-crushing game to the Cincinnati Bengals to fall to 1-3.In most years the Panthers, Falcons, and Saints are battling for the NFC South title and Wild Card playoff spots. Every Falcons loss helps the Panthers playoffs odds. Fitzmagic went “poof” Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Buccaneers were the toast of the NFL after a shocking 2-0 start. The last thing the Panthers needed was for the usually hapless Bucs to suddenly become competent. But after a Week 3 loss Color Rush Devin Funchess Jersey , the Bucs then got destroyed in Week 4 by the Chicago Bears, 48-10. It’s a relief to see the Bucs are still the Bucs. The Eagles lostWhile the defending Super Bowl champs are struggling a bit, they could still be in the mix to challenge the Panthers for a Wild Card spot. The Eagles Week 4 loss to AFC’s Tennessee Titans drops them to 2-2 and helps Carolina’s playoff aspirations. Turner and Samuel practicedAn early bye week is normally a bad thing, but it worked out well this year for the banged-up Panthers. Trai Turner and Curtis Samuel have both returned to practice. Getting an extra week of rest was definitely helpful. Not a bad bye week, all things considered. With a winnable home game against the New York Giants coming up this week Color Rush Taylor Moton Jersey , the Panthers season is looking up.
