Kinda worried about the NO game

8 posts in this topic

No NFC South team has lost a division game at home all season. I'm not saying that this simple stat means we'll lose, I'm just pointing out that division teams have been playing really well at home this season.

NO played very well this weekend (better than we did against Detroit) and they'll be looking to be the spoilers of our great season.

If we lose, we'll probably play @ Arizona in the first round.

If we win, we might have to play the Cowboys or Atlanta in Charlotte for our first playoff game.

I'd really like that first round bye...I'm just worried that the Saints have plans of their own.

We haven't won in a dome either.

I think we take this one though. Absolutes only exist in the past.

When we played Detroit they had a little more life in them. They had renewed confidence because they picked up Cullpepper. Now they are pretty much laying down, so I don't think that's a good comparison. But they will try to be spoilers no doubt.

Time for Panthers to rewrite that trend then. I'm confident that we can beat the Aints in their house.

This scenario in this game reminds me a lot of the stigma we had in 2005 against Atlanta in the regular season finale. Here's hoping for the same type of result and momentum that will follow it.

Like I said before:

1. Tampa's Defense has only given up 1 rushing TD

2. Jay Cutler hasn't been sacked in 4 games

We won five in a row at Raymond James before Week 6.

Jeff Garcia won his last five against us before Week 14.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
