I am not overlooking Chicago, and neither should you.

Recommended Posts

The Panthers could very well lose in Chicago this weekend. 

 

Take a look at their season so far... 

Chicago Bears (2-4)

Week 1 - HOME - Lose to Atlanta 23-17

Week 2 - AWAY - Blown out in Tampa Bay 29-7

Week 3 - HOME - Defeat the Steelers in Chicago - 29-17

Week 4 - AWAY - Lose to Green Bay 35-14

Week 5 - HOME - Lose to Vikings 20-17

Week 6 - Away - Defeat the Ravens 27-24 

 

Observations 

Chicago quietly has the 6th ranked defense in the league currently. (Better than Detroit and Philadelphia's )

All of Chicago's home games have either been wins, or losses within 1 score. I suspect the same will be true this weekend. 

Chicago has not allowed more than 23 points at home against offenses better than the Panthers (Steelers, Falcons). 

 

Conclusion

For a Panthers team that is struggling on offense to begin with, this is not an automatic win. Throw in the fact that John Fox has extra motivation to hand Jerry and Marty an L this weekend, and things become far less certain.

This season will not be easy. Anybody who hasn't figured that out is a cup of tapioca pudding.

I expect a very sloppy and tightly contested game Sunday. I expect Wilkes to throw everything he can at the young QB and attempt to rattle him early and often. But Chicago has a very solid front 7 and if our Oline plays like it did last week, it could be a very long day with lots of hurt feelings on here. This team has our old friend Danny Trevathan and Lenoard Floyd is really starting to come into his own. Combine that solid defense with a player like Cohen on Special teams and thats a recipe for upset. 

I hope having 10 days to refocus and reevaluate will make a difference and we will see a motivated Squad take care of business and put this one away early, but this is Ron and Shula's Panthers so ill say 

16-14 Panthers, our defense intercepts the young QB on the cusp of putting them in FG range at the end of the game

Oh yes, the extra motivation angle. 

That sly Fox.

If you don't think Fox would personally enjoy sticking it to the two guys that handed him the 2010 season.....

God forbid we make Trubisky look like a 10 year vet.

 

Their running game is the only thing that worries me about them

I personaly dot give a fug what Fox has to say, get the run game going and control the game for W. 

Need to start racking up wins, Philly is going to lose couple of game and we can take #1 Seed for NFC still.

Would be nice, but I don't see it happening this week. Chicago is just as good up front as the Eagles are. 

 

But who knows, maybe Ryan Kalil is back and that makes a difference.

Fox is going to make it tough for us. He always builds a strong defense and we're going to be facing a rookie QB with almost no tape on him -- no studying his tendencies or even knowing what the crap he can do. 

That makes this game a shaky one for us and doesn't Chicago have some spark in the running game? 

This is going to be a tough one. Hoping we win.

The Panthers match up perfectly against the Bears. Our strengths are their weaknesses.

If we lose to the Bears, we’re not a playoff team. Simple as that.

Also, the Falcons do not have a better offense than us. That one you saw against Miami is the same one you saw against the Bears, Bills, and Lions. A trash, vanilla offense of mush. Big Ben was also very inaccurate.

I expect a blowout. A good solid game from us. If we can’t even convincingly win, I’d be very worried.
