What's up? What's up? What's up? I'm bet, and we are talking about some more Panthers news today.
I thought I might get into some college football, but I ended up not even watching any tonight or today.
I don't know what games wrong. Later on.
I really gotta check out what's going on.
I watched the show.
I really got to see what's going on with Thea with later on tonight.
Hold on. We look up. We used to see what's going on today.
Uh, what games are coming on later tonight? Clemson is killing for the state.
Does it doesn't surprise me.
Band was killing.
Ah, checks a denim.
I really want to see what comes on during prime time was on prime time.
Uh, Louisville, Wake Forest.
Wait. Forces 19. That's tough.
Penn State versus Iowa.
None of these games really moved me except obviously the Florida L s U game.
Yeah, Other than that, I don't think these guys really move me.
And that's like in an hour I'm gonna have to watch that game.
I might stream part of that game.
Who knows? I might talk about that game when it comes on But today I want to talk about yours.
I want to talk about Cam Newton and his possible return.
Maybe sometime soon.
Ah, we did see him.
Ah, there were pictures of him showing up to practice earlier this week.
I think it was Monday with a team was still in Charlotte.
He showed her practice on his little more little motorbike thing.
And the biggest thing is, he was not wearing a boot anymore.
He wasn't wearing that that walking boot that he had, um, for the last couple weeks, several weeks, uh, which, Which makes me think that he might be ready to go sometime soon.
Now, he was at practice, but it wasn't like at the actual practice.
He was while the guys work on the actual field.
He was in the practice bubble, so the media members couldn't see really what was going on? What was happening? Ah, so we don't know if he's actually like throwing passes.
If he was going through drills, know what the stationery Was he walking around moving around? What was he actually doing? Was just more rehab work, was he? You know, they're stowing at this using? Ah, just, I guess throwing a ball to stationary targets.
No one knows exactly what was going on there, but there was a really big tell without knowing exactly what was going on.
If that boot is off, that means that the doctors think that his foot has healed to the point where he can start to put pressure on it, and that is a huge, huge point.
It's a really important part of the of the healing process of a Lisfranc injury, which is a mid foot injury.
It could be a ligament.
It could be a misaligned bone on your foot, the the other called parcels metatarsals.
I'm not really sure they are called metatarsals, but with this being the case, this is actually a little bit more ahead of schedule that people would have thought originally because when you get a get a Lisfranc injury, it could be very serious.
Um, with with surgery, it could be 10 to 12 weeks before you're able to even step on it again.
Without surgery, it can summer between I've seen 4 to 8, I've seen 6 to 8.
I lean more toward 6 to 8, depending on the severity, and especially with Cam having reactivated it, having gotten a Lisfranc injury in the third week of the preseason against the the other that the Patriots and then reactivating that injury in the game against the Bucks.
Although he said he knew he was still hurt in the first game against the Rams, you started.
Think to yourself that timeline maybe a little bit more fluid than you would expect just because.
Or than what has indicated this, because I mean what the recovery time is based off of you stopping your exercising right when you noticed the injury.
And obviously you're still going for three weeks after sustaining a Lisfranc injury, which is a pretty serious injury.
So So things are a little bit shaky right now.
But But if if we're gonna use this, the timeline as a photo really use of the time line for this friend injury and compared to what the schedule is, we might be able to expect Cam Newton back relatively soon, relatively soon.
So check this out, right? What's that? So we know that he got injured in the third game of the preseason against the Patriots, right? That game was on was on August 22nd and he reaggravated that injury, although is kind of shaky, even with Billy put out on YouTube, explaining himself explaining he got injured in the Patriots game and then he knew he was hurt still during the Rams game.
But he finally told the coaches during after the Bucks game, Let's get this straight.
The coaches knew this.
Dude said he couldn't jog around the Phil pregame and it hurt up and hurt like walk around and plant.
The coaches of if you're a coach or part of the medical staff.
If you're part of a professional medical staff, I don't mean professionalizing professional football, medical staff.
I mean, if there's even anybody, if you go to school for how long it takes to be a to be a physical therapist or Noah one of sports medicine, I assume at least eight years you have a dying to say who who hurt his foot, and you can't notice that he's limping around.
But he's not moving the same way that he usually does that he has that he's showing symptoms.
Maybe you can't diagnose it with your eye.
Maybe you can maybe have a few test whatever.
But even without test, which I assume you would have to do both physically and imaging what is in this with your eyes? You're telling me that a physical therapist at a store in the sports media that these professional doctors that worked for a $1,000,000 company, the killing of panthers did not once notice or at least suspect Orly start tow.
Watch for this man to be to be limping around or to notice some kind of change in his behaviour, changing this energy change in the way he carries himself when he's moving around.
If no one sat there and noticed anything, if you believe that, I don't know what to tell you.
But the coaching staff and the medical staff definitely already knew Can did not tell them anything that that surprised them at all.
So from the 22nd to the 12th of September, Can was playing on an injured list.
Frank on injured on foot.
So we're gonna go off of the 6 to 8 weeks from the 22nd weaken, go ahead and say, Let's go ahead and say eight weeks just because with Cam, you don't want to rush him back.
We've seen what happens when you let this man play through in injury.
We see what happens.
We sing this coaching staff.
Let this man play through injury before.
So the 22nd is going eight weeks.
1234567 88 weeks.
Lines up perfectly with our bye week it lines up with after the game tomorrow.
Verse of the Buccaneers are the eighth week will be.
That would be our next week.
I will be the 20th of October, which is our bye week.
And nine weeks from the third from the Patriots game will be the game against the Niners.
Now the Niners have one of the better.
Defense is in the league.
I don't know how how good I really feel about this man going up against against Nick Bo.
So Richard Sherman and the rest of that Niners defense that would probably not be the best idea, and this is getting minuses nine weeks out from the first time he entered his flight.
Now we sell going.
Is that that niner defense? I'm not sure.
Now, 10 weeks out from the injury, we'll be the Titans game on the third of November.
That might be a much more favorable matchup against the Titans.
Gives you two more extra weeks passed, a minimal for recovering from a list, Frank.
You might like that a little bit more and then going off from that.
We're looking at 11 weeks with the Packers.
That could happen, but I think what we're gonna do here, I think the best solution.
I think what the team's going to do if they're smart and if they really want to make sure Cam is 100% healthy is they're going to start the clock of that 6 to 8 weeks, starting with the game against the Bucks on the 12th.
So I think that the first week that counting the first week of camp recovery is gonna be the 22nd meaning the third game team played against the Cardinals.
That's gonna be the first week of, ah, full rest time.
So going off that looking at 345678 weeks would be the Falcons game eight weeks out being the Falcons game.
And if you were watching the movement followed the NFL so far this year, you know that the Falcons offense looks elite.
The Falcons defense is the exact opposite.
You feel me? So there might be something there, too, to exploit the Falcons defense cannot stop anyone.
The Falcons defense cannot stop you.
Can I stop me? And I mean one of the ball passing the ball.
Whatever you gonna do with the ball, the fabulous defense has they have valet's red carpet set up their their bouncers they have do is ready tow usher u N to the end zone.
And if you can kick, maybe you could get a quick little field goal here and there.
But for the most part, this Falcons defense really stopping nobody and by that time, there kind of injury riddle.
But by that time, I would not be surprised if more guys fall.
It's just the nature of the game.
Uh, chances are I mean, what we have what? Four.
If we have five more weeks, do we play them? 23456 more weeks.
56 more weeks to put the Falcons.
There could be more injuries, but that doesn't really matter because this team, if it stays healthy, will not need for the tablets have more injuries in order to win this game.
Especially, our defense is playing.
I think our defense can get the Matt Ryan Hankin, maybe stop Austin Hooper and worry more about Julio M. Calvin.
Really? And if you make it, if you placed into our James Brad Region playing this year and the last couple of years, James Bradberry really has locked up Julio Jones, who has always gotten less than this season average against James Bradberry looks for the last couple of years.
Ever since we got rid of the nave, been witchery after after Julio cooked this man, that was a sad day.
That was a sad, sad day when a Benwick we got I think it was the very next week.
It wasn't a pretty sight.
But all the past couple years we've We've seen James Bradberry really, really keep a Cuba, Uh, keep keep Julio under lock and key.
And either way, Julio only gets yard.
He does not get touchdowns, he gets very few touchdowns.
Calvin really is really the big weapon on this team.
Freeman suddenly forgot how to run.
Developing from was, it was good for last.
What 23 years, he suddenly just so that I'll run.
The dude is just not good at running.
The Falcons cannot run the ball.
They're very one dimensional.
If you can stop or at least get to Matt Ryan, you can stop this.
This Falcons defense stop his offense.
And if our defense has anything elite at an elite level, it's meeting greet with the quarterback.
That that that's very possible.
So I think that, you know, we could see Kim a CZ early as a Niners game, although I think the most realistic is maybe Titans or Packers.
I think the best choice the best time frame for came to comeback will be this Falcons game.
It does seem like a pretty long time, although after this Bucks game, that's only three more games of him being out.
And that would be the best time to reintroduce Cam to to the, uh to the NFL public to the world.
That's a really good game to make sure that one he's one Harbison healthy because you could recover from your from your list.
Frank injury caused from the injury.
You're an athlete.
Whatever you've been gone for, like what 78 weeks nine weeks.
You could be good to go.
You can have. You can have your foot be healthy.
But are you in football shape? All ready to take hits? Are you ready? Are you? Are you ready? Toto? Play at a certain speed for a certain amount of time.
Can you go for 60 minutes at 100% speed? Because when you have a foot injury that you can't put pressure on, how much cardio do you think Cam has been working on with this foot injury? Probably not much.
So after the eight weeks of recovery, he might take another two weeks to get back into football shape.
And then after that, it's the Packers game.
The Packers defense isn't all that great, but that's a game in Lambeau in the middle of November.
I don't like camp playing in the cold against against Aaron Rodgers in that game.
I like this game against the Falcons.
It's at home at BofA.
It was that's it.
Really. Well, it gives him time.
It lets us Ah, see how Col Allan's doing.
See if we can keep this ship afloat.
I mean, the Titans game should be winnable if you win this Bucks game were foreign to.
And even if we lose the games against the Niners and the Packers, we'll be five and four Coming into this Falcons game.
I don't see us living both those games.
Honestly, it's almost Christmas Catholic and stay healthy.
Uh, well, quick.
McAfee is the easiest is the centerpiece of this whole offense, but I guess yes, when he gets the Niners and the pitting on the Packers, look, I could see us winning that game, too.
One of these next three games will probably lose, but I'd say we're going over on a seven game streak.
I won't get too crazy like that, but I think we could go to two for two and one and the games.
After the Bucks, Karen comes back against the Falcons.
The perception is everything.
Kim has a really strong day.
His first day back quiets the haters, and even people won't talk about context about Falcons look bad.
It still does camp some good chicken, that confidence, because they might look, people need these athletes.
They say that they ignore the all the outside noise.
Don't petition to the media the guy's talking about and what not.
It's a flat out lie, all right, So if I don't lie, these guys care These athletes, they care what is said about them.
They want to be great.
And part of brightness is a perception, and they want to look good to the to the public, especially Cam.
You might be able to believe so these other athletes.
But Cam definitely cares how he looks.
And this game against the Falcons on the 17th at home really could be the game that we see Kim come back.
Give him enough time to fully recover from that list.
Frank, sometime a couple extra weeks to get into football shape, catch back up, and we fighting is a bad defense.
It just really shapes up to be the best looking game from to come back to and gives him a one game buffer period for the Saints, who should have Drew Brees back.
And then right after that is the Redskins.
So it's easy Team saints at at Saints, and then it's the Redskins.
So easy, team pretty hard game.
Is it him again? And after the Redskins, we put the Falcons again.
So that's a stretch of four games.
We can go 33 and one with Cam.
Perception, confidence and a strong a strong law streak of games leading into the back end. The bat.
What for the back three games of the season.
Going against the Seahawks at home.
Coats in Andy and Saints at home.
But that back that back third of the season? Well, seventh.
Really? So the back half.
The back half the season, starting with the Falcons really seems to be the perfect time to let can play the perfect time for Kim to come back.
We could bring him back early.
We could bring him back as soon as the Titans game, maybe even the Packers.
But Falcon seems like the best move Cow Alan, even though he fumbles a lot.
And when I say it, I mean this man, almost like it's his job, I guess Part of his contract Don't someone said, Look, I don't want to do too much butt fumble a little bit in there sometimes.
Maybe he hasn't been bad, though.
Game managing he'd been I he could do his job.
You the way mess I got for you, though, Camp should come back by the 17th of November, and that's it.
I think that's the perfect time.
The coaching staff cares about itself comes about his long term health and about the team doing well this year with him down the stretch.
Give him time to recover, give them time to come back to his football shape and have a really good I guess, homecoming game against the Falcons divisional game, a team that every single analyst said would do better than us in the division.
And if my kind I went to public school, so I don't know, math act, that I fell statistics in high school.
So hey, that's just me.
And to the Falcons, air warning for it will take a miracle.
It would take a miracle for us to be worse than the Falcons, but I've seen that I have seen things happen before.
Look, I've seen things last year happen.
I will be too crazy.
All right? That's about it, though.
Cam 17th November.
What is that? Four weeks from now, five weeks before games.
If you don't count if you count this.
The Bucks game tomorrow.
Niners, Titans, Packers.
It's how I feel about it.
