What to Watch In Panthers 2nd Preseason Game

By Josh Moore

The Panthers play the Miami Dolphins in their second game of the preseason. In the first game the panthers starters did not play much and will see much more playing time in this preseason game.

In the first preseason game Cam Newton only had six passing attempts and two completions but will get more chances to make plays in this game. Last year Newton had a great season but made lots of mistakes out on the field. Watch to see if Newton has changed his decision-making ability with a full year of playing under his belt.

Last year the panthers did not have a solid 2nd receiver and this year it looks like Brandon LaFell is going to be Newton 2nd target. It is important to watch is Newton will trust him enough to throw the ball to him in tight situations.

With the ninth pick in the NBA draft the Panthers picked Luke Kuechly who will be a key addition to the LINEBACKER core and they need to watch to see how he fits with the other LBs.

Coming into the NFL draft the panthers needed help protecting Newton in the running game. So in the 2nd Round the panthers picked up Amini Silatolu who has lots of raw power and needs to learn how to play in the speed of the NFL. See how he can do against a much powerful opponents then he did at Midwestern State.
