The Panthers secondary was a know weakness coming into this season after losing Josh Norman and Charles Tillman. This past week Falcons Wr Julio Jones had a monster game against the Panthers, racking up 300 yards in receiving. James Bradbury who is a rookie corner got injured will not play Monday, and this morning the Panthers cut another corner via Steve Reed.

So the Panthers secondary is not looking to be in great shape as they will be playing two rookie corners this week against the Bucs Wr Mike Evans. Expect the Bucs offense to move their receivers around to create mismatches and let Jameis attack them all over the field. Bucs need to use timing routes against them as it seem that is what gives the Panthers secondary the most trouble. Vincent Jackson, Adam Humphries, and Russell Shepard need to step up and be precise for Jameis. Game plan should be to get the ball out quick and with timing allowing some yards after the catch opportunities.
