Ron deserves credit for years, even before we started winning. This defense that we all love was built by Ron. I used to cringe 2 years ago when morons were calling to fire Ron when he had just started getting his team built. We will win a Superbowl with Ron Rivera, Cam and Gettleman.
I dont think we go 16-0, t is just almost impossible to do and better teams than us have failed. But i do think we can beat anyone on our schedule, when we play our brand of football and limit our mistakes. I expect us to win the Seattle game based on our performance compared to their performance so far this season. Green Bay I dont expect to beat, but I certainly think we are capable if we can force our game plan on them and keep the ball out of Rodgers hands as much as possible.
Our defense rotates players to keep them fresh, maybe more so than any other team on defense.
I realy am surprised that more teams dont rotate more. Having guys that are still fresh in the 4th qtr to give 100% against a tired o-line that has been playing the whole game is a huge reason for our success.
Our 'true' run game is #4 in the NFL. I know you guys cant stand it... but Cam's yards count, no matter what you think. Cam is a dual threat, and it is part of our game, it gives us an advantage, and we use it.
Same. After I saw Aaron Rodgers have the best game of his career and get a negative rating I do not take that website seriously. It is obviously flawed. Does anyone factor weather into these models? I was at the game, and half the time it was raining pretty heavy. It is normal for LBs to slip and slide some in wet games.
The Panthers always finish the season strong, while the Falcons usually falter at the end. Remember last year, we had a contest at their house and the winner won the division and went to the playoffs. The Panthers kicked ass and took names while the Falcons got reamed. I dont think the Falcons are going to want any of this by the time we play them... Remember, they are still a finesse offense, and we are a hard nose physical football team. I always like our odds in that scenario.
Its true that the agreement has limited time to get teams ready for the season. I cant complain because of our great start this year, but I would like to see the Panthers players meeting on their own in the offseason and trying something new, yoga or something and get themselves ready for an NFL season a week or two before the practices begin. If they had did that this year, Benjamin would most likely be playing with us right now. He was hurt because he was not in shape when he showed up for camp. I'll get flamed for saying that, but it is true, and Rivera was right calling him out on it, even though he should have done it privately...
