Due to the Democratic National Convention taking place in Charlotte this week, the Carolina Panthers are moving opening day practice to Bradenton, Florida. Coach Ron Rivera has high hopes for the week away. In an interview with ESPN, he said, “”It’s definitely different. A lot of guys are like, ‘Hey coach it’s like getting ready for a bowl game.’ They have the right attitude and the right mental frame of mind going in.”

“This can be a rallying cry for us, it really can,” he went on to say. “It’s an opportunity to get away and focus in on an opponent and focus in on football. I think the attitude is going to be about coming together. So I think it’s going to be fun how we handle things and how this all develops for us.”

Other team members agree it will be good to get away and practice. Linebacker Jon Beason says the heat and humidity of Tampa Bay will help them prepare for the opening game against the Buccaneers. “I think it’s going to be a little humid down there so getting out there and having a whole week of practice in Florida versus getting off the bus in Tampa the day of the game and all of a sudden that Tampa weather hits you,” he said. “Yes it will help us.”

The team spending time together seems to be a great way to start the momentum for the season, but do you think it will help?
