Locker Room Update: Herding the Cats

Players are beginning to speak about the players-only meeting held on Wednesday. It appears the initial reaction is that the meeting went well and everybody feels better about the team as a whole.

"The floor was open to anybody to speak; it went from rookies to 10-year vets," Lucas said. "I think it was very healthy for the team; you really got a chance to hear what a guy was really feeling."
Finding more consistency was one topic; Carolina has played win-one, lose-one football through the first quarter of the season, and is 2-2 going into Sunday's game at New Orleans.
"Some of our veterans thought they needed to sit everybody down and tell us what we're doing is wrong and we need to pick it up," Marshall said. "They told us what we have to start doing to get this team better.
"Guys talked about just doing different things on and off the field that will help out this team. Getting everybody on the same page and everybody agrees to it.

I’m relieved to hear this. No finger-pointing, no name-calling or calling out individual players. We just may be able to herd these Cats after all!

DeAngelo Williams to Handle Kick-Offs

This is big news in my book. The Panther KO returns have been anything but spectacular. I hate that it took Nick Goings to get hurt for this move to be made. No diss on Goings, I'll let him run the rock anytime. D-Will provides a big play threat though how much I can't say. He returned KO's last year when we were next to last in KO return yardage. I think we just don't know how to block on KO returns. Let's see if D-Will provides some much needed special team excitement.
