Passing Game Looks Awful During Scrimmage

Much of the talk during the first week-and-a-half of training camp focused on the improvements the Panthers made in the passing game after finishing 27th in the NFL last season. However, it didn’t look that way at Saturday’s Fan Fest scrimmage.

The Panthers’ first-team offense managed just two first downs in three possessions as quarterback Matt Moore finished 4-of-9 passing for 26 yards while an experienced offensive line looked out of sync and allowed regular pressure from the second-team defense. The second-team offense wasn’t any better as quarterbacks Hunter Cantwell and Jimmy Clausen managed only one first down during its 12-play sequence.

The only points of the scrimmage came when the third-team offense managed to drive in field-goal range for veteran kicker John Kasay. “The defense was ahead of the offense,” Panthers coach John Fox said. “But I think that’s typical every year. But I’m pleased with the effort and pleased we got through healthy.”
