Panthers defense probably gonna come in mad after last week’s embarassment.

But offense may make your “32nd against the pass 31st against the run” defense elite.

Hope we make it a challenge lol but we’ll see.

Will take a miracle for the Panthers to be competitive in this one, honestly. 

 

I hope they surprise me. They certainly did last Sunday.

You shouldn't be afraid of injuries, because it literally NEVER affects your team.    Must be nice :(.

"I wouldn't judge our defense by that terrible stat just yet. The abscence of Hightower has seriously hurt. KC had some great game planning in the 4th to put up 21 unanswered and Brees is well Drew Brees. The poo show vs the rookie Watson is a bit more concerning. Currently we have a very talented secondary with a woefully underperforming front 7 that is threadbare in depth at LB and DE. I'm not saying our defense won't be trash this season but I've seen seasons like this before where we don't know what we have as we're moving pieces around and forming an identity and Week 3 is way too early to write them off. I sincerely hope Hightower is back as he is our defensive signal caller.

 

How is Carolina's inside pass rush? Brady doesn't have a lot of weaknesses but being able to keep him from stepping up in the pocket is huge and Andrews our center is probably the weakest link of our line. How has the secondary looked without Norman? Has Benjamin dropped the Doritos and stopped trying to imitate Eddie Lacy? It royally sucks about Olsen but hopefully the WRs can step up. The main thing that makes Carolina a threat is like KC when they had Berry you guys are one of the select few teams that have a player talented enough to cover Gronk 1 on 1 in Kuechly. All I know is if he gets away with another bear hug in the end zone I'm doing more than throwing a lawn gnome through his window. 

I've lived in SC all my life so I really wish this were a damn home game. A 2 hour drive to see Brady again is a lot better than needing a flight. My first NFL game was in 2015 when you guys played the Saints at home and a CB (I think Norman) sealed the game with a pick. Good times."

 

All that said, any given Sunday. We don't play Carolina often enough for me to know the matchups but the way teams are early in the season who knows how this one goes. Btw, I THOROUGHLY enjoyed reading you guys Superbowl thread when the Atlanta meltdown started.

Defense should come back. In all honesty Saints implemented probably one of the most challenging pre-snap motions to cover so far, and that got us out of place a lot.

Panthers played base defense a lot too for some odd reason. They just motion away Shaq and hit it. I doubt that Wilks isn’t smart enough to learn from that and play more nickel, which our defense has been tops in the NFL in.

Overall, just need more gap integrity and nickel packages. Panthers played elite against the Bills with that, but obviously against the Saints Sean Peyton dialed up a custom gameplan to fool us, and it worked.

But we lost Edelman for the season in the 3rd preseason game. And our starting LB has been out since late in the game week 1. And Gronk was out after the Seahawks game last year. In 2015 our offensive line was so decimated by injuries that an NFL record was set for how many times Miller knocked the hell out of Brady. 

Trust me injuries make or break our season just like any other team the difference is usually Brady/BB can still get us to the playoffs through sheer will.

Not even losing Brady keeps the Patriots from the playoffs (Cassel year as example).
