Panthers 2018 season opener countdown: 28 days to go We are 28 days away from the beginning of the Carolina Panthers 2018 season. That means today we take a closer look at the Panthers 2018 third round pick Authentic Donte Jackson Jersey , safety Rashaan Gaulden. That also means we’re exactly 4 weeks away from football.Rashaan Gaulden, SafetyBioHeight: 6’Weight: 200 lbsAge: 23College: TennesseeNFL Experience: RookieRashaan Gaulden is the first safety drafted by the Carolina Panthers since Tre Boston. The safety position has never been particularly valued when constructing Rivera’s defenses so it is no surprise that it has taken the Panthers this long to address what many of us have long considered a shaky position on the roster.Gaulden fits the mold that Rivera has seemingly often sought when filling out his roster: he’s a little bit older than his peers, not quite as a fast, and highly effective at crashing downfield to stop the run.Gaulden has already started turning heads at training camp with a few impressive plays Womens Greg Van Roten Jersey , not to mention at least one unnecessary hit, but don’t look for him to crack the starting line up any time soon. Rivera loves playing veterans more than league commissioner Roger Goodell loves bungling a public relations crisis. Mike Adams played serviceably as a strong safety —Gaulden’s natural position — last year and won’t loose his job to anything short of hip replacement surgery. Expect the rookie to feature heavily in the rotation at strong safety, and possibly in more run-balanced big nickel formations, for 2018. The starting job should definitely be on the table for him next year. The six point spread has not budged since Wednesday so the money must be fairly even on both sides. The over/under is also unchanged at 44.5 points.TopBet.euSign up here to place your bet on the Panthers +6. We also have some prop bets http://www.carolinapanthersteamonline.c ... ano-jersey , such as who will score first:The Falcons lead the all time series 28-18, including four of the last five. I think these teams are more evenly matched than the recent history suggests. Here’s the NFL Game Capsule which is simply the stats from Week 1. The teams stat sheets are very similar but with opposite outcomes.A win in ATL would be huge for this Panthers team. A loss won’t be too hard on them since they aren’t expected to win anyway. Let’s hope Cam has a chip on his shoulder about something as he always seems to play better when he has that attitude.This game is already heavily impacted by injuries. The Panthers lost right tackle Darryl Williams to a knee injury and tight end Greg Olsen to a foot injury during the game. We’ve since learned right guard Trai Turner will miss the game as well. That means the Panthers offensive line is a mess. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner and quarterback Cam Newton will have to figure out how to minimize the damage Newton takes. Expect a lot of short passes to slow down the rush. The Panthers passing and return game is also short handed. Wide receiver Damiere Byrd has been ruled out with a knee injury and wide receiver Curtis Samuel will miss his second game due to an unexpected heart murmur procedure. I think the Panthers have the weapons to absorb their loss. Outside of Greg Olsen none of the Panthers injuries are considered to have long term effects.The Falcons have fewer injured players but they will be missing to key players. Running back Devonta Freeman has been ruled out with a knee injury. Earlier in the week is was announced two key Falcons defenders were sent to injured reserve. Safety Keanu Neal and linebacker Deion Jones were both injured in the season opening loss to the Eagles. Those three players are tough for the Falcons to overcome. Here’s the game notes. I especially love the fact Kawann Short plays well against the Falcons.NFL Game CapsulesLet’s also not forget defensive tackle Dontari Poe is playing his former team that let him walk after a single season. Keep Pounding!
