Look at that third down efficiency. Incredible what having a guy like CMC does for third downs.

Now to just fix up our redzone offense.

We should be able to add to those 2 sacks allowed, and if we can't get some TDs against this defenseless NO team, then we're in big trouble.

3rd in total offense and yet only 16th in scoring, the hole their defense is digging its the kind of frustration that can cause real locker room troubles.

Now if offenses played offenses then NO would win. And if yards mattered then NO would be at the top. But points for versus points against are the only stats that matter.

Points differential-

New Orleans- -13

Panthers- +13

26 point spread.

If you average NO’s PF with CAR’s PA and vice versa, you get a final of 24.25-11.25, or in real football scores: 24-11. 

My take from this is that we will be ahead most of the game and NO will score a late TD and get the 2pt conversion, only to fail to get the ball back. Book it. Lol

btw @Jeremy Igo, Facebook is doing wonky things to this thread. The graph isn’t formatting right and it’s eye-bleed worthy. Just FYI. Looks fine on mobile.

Yeah. Looking at it either way heavily favors the Panthers. On the other hand each game is about individual matchups so all these stats won't matter once the game starts. I like our chances though and will be there to cheer on the Panthers to another victory.

Same. Lol. I’m curious where you stand on the play calling / offensive woes issue. Historically you’ve defended Shula. Still defending him?
