We will give up an opening drive TD.

Falcons win toss, receive kick, throw pick six, all hell breaks loose.

the panthers defense HAS to stop acting like a funnel to the end zone on the opening drive.
the only chance they have is by stopping them early. that has done nothing but set the tone for the whole game. you can't keep starting out in a hole.

the offense has to put points on the board with their first drive as well...even if it's a FG. just put points on the board. every possession.

Only way to get off the field for us in the 1st quarter is turnovers.....we're not forcing a punt

33-1 when leading going into the 4th, and the 1 was Smith going for it on 4th down on our own 35 against the swamp people. 36-2 when leading at the half. Matt Ryan is undefeated when his QB rating is above 100 as well.

At least we can all agree in our hatred of the Swamp Rats :)

Why can't we just bypass all the embarrasment of a long td drive on their 1st possession and just tell the refs to put 7 on the board... I think they might do it

So expect the Panthers to be down 7-0 before Cam steps on the field. Got it. Thanks for the update.

Well, there is the possibility that we might win the toss and take the ball first. :)
