Panthers 2020 training camp: 6 takeaways from Saturdays scrimmage – Panthers Wire

The Carolina Panthers practiced inside Bank of America Stadium this morning and played their first scrimmage of training camp.

Here are six takeaways from the media on-hand.

Teddy Bridgewater’s strong start

There probably won’t be many highlights coming out of this practice due to restrictions on what reporters are allowed to show this year. So, we will have to settle for a box score for now. For what it’s worth, Bridgewater had a fine day based on the raw stats.

The Riot Report says he started 7/7, finished 9/13 for 159 yards and two touchdowns and had another wiped out by a penalty.

Strong numbers, but they should be taken with an unhealthy dose of salt as Bridgewater faced backups as well as starters. Also, some analysts are projecting the Panthers will have the NFL’s worst defense this year, so odds are they are going to make a lot of quarterbacks look good.

That said, this is another positive sign for Bridgewater, who has done everything right so far – including staying late to get extra reps in. He continued that trend today.

Things can always change once the live games begin. Right now, this looks and sounds a lot like it’s Teddy Bridgewater’s team.
