CHARLOTTE, N. Nike Air Max Schweiz Sale .C. -- Coach Ron Rivera isnt overly concerned about the offenses lackluster performance in the preseason.Im not going to push the panic button, Rivera said Monday. Im not sure why I should either.League MVP Cam Newton has led 15 drives during the preseason that have resulted in only 13 points. The Panthers scored three points against the New England Patriots on Friday night with Newton under center for 10 possessions.While Rivera remained non-committal on whether Newton and other starters will play in Thursday nights preseason finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers, history suggests they wont.Newton hasnt played in the last preseason game since his rookie season in 2011 when the Panthers were frantically trying to prepare him for the regular season after the former No. 1 pick missed most of the offseason workouts due to the NFL owners lockout.Rivera harkens back to last preseason when the Panthers also struggled against New England, but started 14-0 and reached the Super Bowl.Rivera also acknowledges hes concerned about injuries in preseason finales, which is why he tends to holdout his key players.Still, Newton described the teams overall offensive inefficiency as an eye opener, and expressed some concern about the lack of communication with his teammates.We just got to be on each others Wi-Fi stronger than we have been, Newton said. Its been a lackluster performance with the communication part and when that happens, if youre already beat pre-snap, then the success rate is going to be extremely low.For a team that led the league in scoring last season with 500 points, the idea of scoring 13 points on 15 possessions seems a little unsettling.We do need better production from everybody including myself, Newton said. There were times in the game where I forced certain things where I shouldnt have and I just have to be more mature and have more understanding of the offensive just to check it down, and let guys do what they do.Of course, the Panthers will be a different team in the regular season.First, Newton will be allowed to run the ball which creates problems for defenses. And the Panthers expect to have leading receiver Greg Olsen back in the lineup after missing the last two preseason games with back spasms.Rivera said he doesnt believe the Panthers are far off from having success on offense. He said the players were where they were supposed to be -- they just didnt execute.We had guys wide open and we overthrew them. We were wide open and we dropped the ball. We missed opportunities on some cut backs in terms of our running game. We missed blocks, Rivera said. So thats really what this is about was about taking advantage of opportunities in front of you and we didnt. ... We just didnt play the way we are capable of and that is what is disappointing.When the Panthers do have to punt, the team will likely feel a little better about the potential outcome.Carolina acquired three-time Pro Bowl punter Andy Lee and a seventh-round pick in 2017 from the Browns on Monday in exchange for young punter Kasey Redfern and a fourth-round pick in 2018. That helps solidify a punting situation that has been in flux since Brad Nortman signed a four-year, $8.8 million contract with Jacksonville earlier this offseason as an unrestricted free agent.The Panthers had signed veteran punter Mike Scifres, but he injured his right leg against New England.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ;Nike Schuhe Schweiz . "Four now," Carl Gunnarsson told the Leaf Report proudly following a 5-2 victory over New York on Tuesday night, the clubs fifth straight at home. Günstig Air Max Schweiz . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. http://www.airmaxoutlet.ch/ .  Breaking three of his own world records on his way to winning in Paris, Chan silenced the critics and left the audiences standing in appreciation and awe. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State?quarterback Sean Maguire suffered a broken bone on the outside of his right foot and is out four weeks, coach Jimbo Fisher said Saturday.The redshirt senior was competing with redshirt freshman Deondre Francois for the starting job after Maguire split time as the starter last season. He lost the job to Everett Golson at the start of the 2015 season but ended up starting five games.He suffered the injury Wednesday during the second practice of camp and will likely have surgery Monday.On the [right] foot, the outside little bone in his foot, theyre going to have to put a screw in it, Fisher said. The same injury [safety]?Derwin [James]?had, so [Maguire will?be out] about four weeks. Hell be back probably by the second, third game of the year.Fisher said he will not name Francois the starter, but he said the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Francois is definitely the No. 1 quarterback as it stands. The Seminoles open the season Sept. 5 against Ole Miss?in Orlando, Florida, then play Charleston Southern?five days later.Some good, some bad, but Im pleased. Im not unhappy at all, about where I thought, Fisher said of Francois play through the first week of practice. And were mixing and matching with different offensive line sets, diifferent backfields, different receiver groups. Günstig Schweiz Schuhe China. Theres a mix-and-match time. Youll have time to hone things [in later practices].Francois redshirted last season as a true freshman. He was No. 42 in the 2015 ESPN 300, and he was the third-ranked dual-threat quarterback. He spent his senior season at the IMG Academy. He has never thrown a pass in a college game.I dont know. I dont know yet, Fisher said when asked if Francois is ready to be the starter. It isnt the game yet. When it gets to the game, well see.In the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on New Years Eve, Maguire fractured his left ankle in the first quarter. He returned to the game, but the injury required surgery. He missed all of spring practice.As a junior, he threw for 1,520 yards, 11 touchdowns and six interceptions. In 2014, he started in place of Jameis Winston for the No. 1 Seminoles against Clemson?and helped lead an overtime win.Theres somebody with as much character as anybody on our football team, Fisher said. Of course hes down. He felt bad, but there was no hesitation about what to do and how to do it. I have the utmost respect for Sean Maguire. ' ' '
