    Jon Beason didn't mince words Saturday night after watching his Carolina teammates bounce off ball carriers, allow two long touchdown drives and add to growing fears that the banged-up Panthers defense isn't ready for the regular season. "On the sideline you get that coaches' point of view. The tackling was horrible," said Beason, the team's leading tackler the past two seasons who had to watch the 17-13 exhibition loss to Baltimore because of a sprained knee. "I think we've got to do a better job in our man-to-man coverage. I think we were good against the run, which we hadn't been the first two games. But we're still not where we need to be." That attitude was prevalent all over the Panthers' spacious locker room after they fell to 0-3 in the preseason.

    From what I've seen, he's right about the tackling. They haven't looked too impressive on defense..
