As some of you may know if you've seen me post before, I'm very straight up. I tell it like it is. I predicted a loss against Arizona and a loss against Green Bay. Of course those games were closer than I anticipated, but I call them like I see them.
This week, now with Cam having a win under his belt, goes to Chicago where his head coach used to play and coach. Besides last years debacle, Carolina and Chicago tend to play close games. It's becoming sort of a rivalry. I'm picking Carolina to win this game because I predict a shootout and I don't think Chicago could win if it comes to that. Chicago's O-Line is putrid so I expect at least a sack from Charles Johnson and Greg Hardy. The LB's might get in on the fun too. 5 sacks on Cutler would be great to see.
On Defense, Carolina's secondary is ripe to be torn apart. I expect a couple of long TD passes from Cutler. But I also expect a few errant throws and possible INTs. Chicago does have a defense that could contain Cam Newton. Julius Peppers will no doubt grab a sack on Newton but who else can bring down Cam 1v1 on their defense? It'll be close, but Carolina wins a shootout.
Our O-line is nothing special..........but they've improved from last year which is a BIG step. What will really screw us in this game would be our WR's. They are just BAD! Our D needs to show up in a big way!!
