My biggest worries:

- defensive tackles banged up

- newfound running game in Arizona

- lack of interior pressure against the pass

Those things together could be a bad combo.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Fox and Trgo will come up with a little something that they haven't seen yet. They already gave our opponents something to think about when they had Peppers coming from every angle in the Saints game.

Of course, they were probably just trying to cover up our weakness at DT, since both of our starters were out, but that doesn't mean they won't do it when Kemo and D-Lew come back either.

That was not a resurgent running game. Atlanta was not focused on stopping it at all.

They will not run for 40 yds against us.

I'm with you.

We shouldn't worry about James being able to get 70 yards on 16 carries as much as the Cardinals should be worried about DeAngelo getting 120 yards on 15 carries :P

Agree that pass rush is a key, though. We saw towards the end of the season Peppers moving around more, playing both sides of the line. They'll have some stunts trying to get Peppers 1 on 1.

I don't recall the Falcons getting anywhere near Warner. Their O-Line did a great job. The home crowd may have had something to do with that, pumping them up and all, but our front four isn't any better than Atlanta's. Hopefully OUR crowd will pump our guys up and we'll see them play lights out. But to be fair, I wouldn't expect anything outrageous or anything more than what we've seen all year.

Fox said on the Panthers Huddle show that we will be back to full strength....so injuries shouldn't be a problem for us.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
