They have NO running game....Edge managed 75 yds against the 28th rated run defense of the Falcons.
They were up because of a blocked punt and a fumble on the 5 yd line...in the first few min of the game. After that, we rolled them.
This one won't even be close.
C'mon man you have been one of my favorite posters here but that isn't anywhere near true. 3 plays kept you guys from losing that one and they were:
1) The terribly pathetic tackling non-effort on Smith by Rolle on the long TD. I wont mention the call because I will be honest and say that I think it was out but the refs really didn't have any choice because non of the camera angles could give you an undisputable view.
2) Our punter fumbling the XP. We marched down the field on you guys all day and had we only needed a FG at the end Warner wouldn't have been forcing passes. The punter has since been replaced BTW.
3) The bad play design on the faked FG. The coaches really whiffed there. Either kick the FG or design a fake that doesn't feature a guy with an arm like a twelve year old girl throwing to someone who is slower than my dead grandmother. Your LB did do a good job sniffing it out though.
You Panthers fans can talk all day about how we lucked out when you fumbled in your own territory, but what about when Edge fumbled on our 15??? Oh that doesn't count because it's detrimental to your arguement? Or how about the TD you guys scored on the next play where Smith had a blatent pass interference that wasn't called?
Also, the punt didn't block itself man. Give the redbirds a little credit will ya? You guys are great team and even greater at home and we played you pretty tough IMO.
