Not sure why Panthers fans thinks Newton is a huge advantage, I would take Stafford if given the choice. 

Should be a close game, with the deciding factor going to the Lions because of a better special teams unit (aka Prater). 

It's okay, you can go be a Lions fan and follow Stafford all you want.  Cam is my QB

The difference last week was you have to throw to set up the run and we did. 

Not sure how that would  work this week. Those DBs don't allow much and are always around the ball.

Those DBs are overrated.

    To me that is very misleading. They have faced 3 mediorce QBs who threw quite a bit. So there success is tenuous at best. They don't really pressure the passer well with just the front four, which seems counterintuitive to their passing defensive success.

 

    If our Oline, whether by scheme, or luck, can keep Cam relatively clean. He should have plenty of success throwing the ball. If we continue to run the ball half way well. We should put plenty of points on the board.

 

    That defense has 2 Pro Bowl caliber defenders. (If Ansah was healthy, I'd say 3.) They are held together by grit, and duct tape. There really is good chance our Offense should do good work.

    Great analyses. Care to share how you came to this conclusion?

    All I ask is, if you are going to throw a hot take out like. "Those DBs are overrated". Just maybe you could, you know, explain yourself?

 

    Cuz, I am pretty sure you are not well versed on the Lions. So this stance is born of glibness, rather than actual knowledge.

Why do I owe you anything? Also you assume I know nothing. Thus why I need to spoon feed you.
