My first point would be Panthers could run against the wide 9 and Cam's escapability would help limit the effectiveness of that Wide9 stuff your ex-oline coach runs when he is calling defense. Your LB'ers would bite harder on Playaction B/C of this. Also you keep Aso in zone way too much, its fuging stupid and I want them to stop.
That said the Panthers D would barely be able to touch Vick, but the LB'er corps could contain his runs. The problem would be McCoy and the WR's wrecking everything.
Will be a good game IMO.
Wide 9 vs. the Panthers run attack would defintely be a possible weakness. It definitely helps get to the QB and I think the Eagles should lead the league in sacks this year but stopping the run is still a question that I have. I am curious to see what Trent Richardson can do against it this weekend.
Aso supposedly is back to the outside for good and they are going to play a lot more physical man coverage in general. I'll believe it when I see it.
Both the Eagles and Panthers offenses are very explosive, but I am not sure the Panthers have addressed their defensive issues to be able to slow the Eagles down enough. Lots can happen between now and then though.
I am really looking forward to the game and hope both teams are relatively healthy for it. Tickets for that game cost me a small fortune!
Anyway, fug it....back to the thread topic...football is back and today is the first day that I have really cared about it. Just glad it is here.
