CSR Panthers vs. Lions Pre-Game Open Thread

It's game day Panther fans and our beloved Panthers are on the road today to play the Lions. It's a Cat Fight!

Declared out for the game is Panthers TE Jeremy Shockey. We saw last week how not having Shockey can impact our 3rd down completion percentage. I hope the offense is better prepared this week as QB Cam Newton certainly won't have  any more time to throw this week than he did against the Titans.

LB Jason Phillips (calf) is also out for the game. Omar Gaither will start at WLB again this week. Dan Conner is questionable but expected to start in the middle. Rookie CB Brandon Hogan remains questionable meaning most likely his first action of the season will continue to be on hold.

Lions RB Jahvid Best has also been ruled out presumably giving recently signed RB Kevin Smith the start. Maurice Morris is also likely to get some carries as a platoon is predicted. You can see the rest of the Lions injury report here but most are back-ups beyond QB Matt Stafford (questionable) and Best. 

So what are your last minute thoughts on this one Panther fans? I have yet to give a prediction and I think I'm going to keep it that way. I haven't like this game since the preseason and have no reason to feel any better about it this week. Maybe they will be more focused after getting waxed last week by the Titans.

This is Now an Open Thread!
