Delhomme scales back

-- The Panthers had been hesitant on revealing how much quarterback Jake Delhomme would throw during training camp. Looks like he'll be eased in somewhat. Delhomme saw plenty of action during Saturday's morning practice and his passes had plenty of zip. But Delhomme spent much of the evening practice with his helmet off, watching backups Matt Moore, Brett Basanez and Lester Ricard take the snaps.

-- Rookies Jonathan Stewart and Jeff Otah and wide receiver D.J. Hackett -- all of whom spent the offseason recovering from injuries -- didn't practice Saturday night as a precautionary measure. Running back Nick Goings sprained his ankle, but isn't expected to miss much time. -- David Scott

We sure are nursing along a lot of guys. Delhomme's arm. Stewart's toe. Otah's ankle. Hackett's injury. Fonoti's weight problem. Seems like everyone's got something to try and overcome. I hope that translates well for the season. Overcoming adversity is something they can all build on and encourage one another in. Let's just hope more of them get past these challenges than not...

Might as well take it easy...long camp, long preseason (still) - no worries...

BTW, I just want to add that I appreciate the Observer's writers doing their jobs - I'm from Charlotte but moved to Cali years ago, and it's just sad to see some of the venomous remarks by readers to the Observer staff -- keep up the good work, guys, and don't let these immature people get to ya...

I will say that I criticize this paper any chance I get, but in this case, the writers do deserve alot of credit, they've been all over the stories and have contstantly updated the site throughout the past two days. Good job.

Problem is matt, you and other fans were unfairly and unrealistically expecting coverage like this during times when nothing was happening and it was their vacation time.

Christian, that is not true.

Good point Tilt. There is a long way to go before San Diego. No need to push anyone yet. Even with only 80 players at camp.

You are right Christian, too many of these posters were overly critical during the down time between OTAs and TC. Unfortunately it is far easier to criticize, than to look for the good.

BOYO is this a great time to be a Panther fan or what? Excitement abounds, and information is flowing.
