We better hope our pass rush is up to speed

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 dose seem to turn it up in the Playoffs and some of the conservitve play goes out the door. Warner has one of the quickest releases I have seen so its gonna be about coverage just as much as pass rush. Losing Bolden is big though.
