Panthers announce training camp schedule
The Carolina Panthers have released their training camp schedule, which starts a bit earlier than last summer.
The Panthers will report to Wofford College on Wednesday, July 28, and the first practices take place July 29.
The Panthers have a few more promotions during camp this year, including movies after some night practices and players throwing T-shirts to fans following Tuesday afternoon sessions. Returning is the "Panthers Pals" program, which allows young fans a chance to get up close and personal with players.
There will also be a "Back to Football," party on Saturday, July 31. The party begins before the night practice and continues afterward in Gibbs Stadium.
Here's a look at the entire camp schedule:
July 29 (9 a.m., 6:30 p.m.)
July 30 (3 p.m.)

Camp will be here before we know it. I'm looking forward to getting going and find out if all these kids we have are going to be big-time players. Not sure if we'll win any more games than last year, but am sure we will be more exciting to watch.

I believe they will win more games than last year. The only real loss was Peppers & I think with 2 fresh hungry fast players changing off to stay fresh they can make up for Peppers. That, & hopefully not 18 interceptions right off, plus the easier schedule, I see them doing pretty well this season.

Word of advice to the bright copy editor for Web content who put a title to this piece: NEVER start a training camp schedule announcement with "Panthers release" on the first line. Curn or find a thesaurus. Use the word "announce" as done on this page. This especially goes for a piece with a photo of Matt Moore right there.
As a journalism major myself who has written and copy edited, it's things like this (and unedited blogs) that make me hate the Web transition.

Hey MJ, they must of listed to Sam b/c they updated the headline. Just Sayin...and btw the Panthers will be as good as their QB play takes them assuming Tony Fiamatta can fill a big hole at FB.

@Adam - QB wasn't the only reason for last year's 8-8 record. Those of you that insist on only blaming Jake, have to have a realty check.. Several key players were hurt, and a defense early on, that couldn't stop a run away cart. Matt Moore has a lot to live up to, and a healthy offensive line is the key to a winning season, period..

Adam, I have to agree. The biggest defecit (FA loss and question mark at the position) this team has had and nobody is talking about it. I would have at least thought that the Panthers.com people would have covered it.
I am no hurry to read about it, since I am a Hoover fan and, more importantly, a Panther fan who does not want the negative things and team weaknesses plastered all over the place, but Fiametta has some big shoes to fill.
Early indications are that he has some work to do, but the good news is that he showed improvement as his rookie season went on. Also, it took Hoover a while to reach the level he had obtained, but that is not something this team can afford right now (development at that major blocking position for the rushing attack).
Keep an eye out for Tyrell Sutton to fill in the old Nick Goings job description and doing it possibly even better. Rotating the two as a change up should help smooth out some of Fiametta's growing pains. That should also keep run defense on their toes and create a potential for big plays from the FB position.
Oh, and Observor staff... you're welcome.

we also picked up Rashawn Jackon from Virginia that is a DIRTY FB. I'm excited to see the two of them battle for the position, although I believe Jackson will be a better fit. I will totally miss Hoover though.

i hated the clausen pick but i feel he will be a quality backup and good option that can still take them to the playoffs.the whole draft has a boom or bust feeling to it..hardy,clausen,pike,edwards,lafell could be stars or duds.could someone explain to me the pugh pick.?this guy wasnt even on the radar.

I think "Posted by: JD | Jun 2, 2010 11:33:24 AM" just peed a little too.

LeBron is coming to the panthers to be our #2 reciever. KICK A
Posted by: john | Jun 2, 2010 1:19:18 PM
@catsnmbr1fan: With all due respect, the QB spot(Jake) accounted for at least 4 of our losses. Dallas was ripe for the taking. Buffalo should never have beaten us. New Orleans(1st game), Miami, and the Jets could have been beaten if we had a QB that wasn't on a tight leash. So although we had injuries, I give Jake the main reason we lost those games.
Posted by: David | Jun 2, 2010 3:07:16 PM
If you think Moore is the answer......Then you are a moron.................We will beg for Jake back after we watch Moore for a couple games.....
Posted by: Michael D | Jun 2, 2010 3:10:34 PM
I can't believe training camp is only 57 days away. Holy Cow!
Posted by: Panther Rob | Jun 2, 2010 3:59:54 PM
michael d....r u smoking crack? no one will be begging for jake to come back...even if he takes the browns all the way to the playoffs! mattymo will start this season and they will give clausen a couple chances. i have faith in mattymo+our receivers. we can make it to the playoffs! nfc south lookout

I would like to take my kids to Spartanburg this year. I would love to hear and tips and advice on attending a training camp day.
Posted by: zippy | Jun 3, 2010 3:45:54 PM
zippy, bring plenty of sunblock and a sun umbrella. Your own cooler filled with plenty of liquids wouldn't hurt. Also, you might want to bring some Zippos and items that some players would autograph for you. Not all of them will stop, but some players are reeeally cool about spending extra time after practices with fans and signing autographs. BTW, a pair of binoculars might be worthwile for seven on sevens or mini-scrimmages.
