The man behind One Panther Place and host of The Roar Podcast John Ellis joined Kyle Bailey today on the Clubhouse to discuss some of the biggest keys in the Panthers upcoming game against the Saints.

The first thing that John previewed with Kyle is how the injury to Michael Thomas will impact the Saints offensive game plan as John told Kyle that it changes the plans for the Saints with the intermediate play call, but on the flip side the Panthers are banged up in the secondary as John wonders who will line up at corner this weekend.

The concerns with the secondary led John to thinking that Phil Snow might have to be more aggressive and challenge Drew to make more throws down the field.

John also said a big thing he has noticed with the Panthers is that they have a streamlined system with the offense, as he thinks Matt Rhule is answering his concerns heading into the season as he thinks that Matt Rhule has outcoached almost the whole league in the early stages of the year.
