I think Norman has his breakout game tomorrow... To have a good showing vs Lance Moore is one thing, but to do it against Juilo Jones will officially establish his starting role to any doubters and build his rep as one of the up and coming leaders of this defense.

I've said it here before, but Norman has the same mental approach to football as Cam... These guys show up to play when people are doubting them. They are a little cocky, and thrive when people say they can't.

Newton and Norman will shine tomorrow.

The #1 key to all games, is stopping the run. The Giants had their way with us because we couldn't stop the run, which opened up the play action pass.

For us to win, we need a balanced offense. Against Tampa we had no run or passing game. Against the Saints we had both. Against New York, the run game was effective, but we couldn't use it because we got so far behind.

Our run game has worked ok the last two games. Don't get me wrong, I hate those hesitation handoffs, but all in all the run game is working. The problem against the Giants is that the passing attack was horrible. We couldn't block, and when we did, we couldn't complete passes. 2 tipped passes, 3 interceptions, and a couple of underthrown balls was what I remember most about our offense in that game. Yet we had to continue passing because we were so far behind.

So offensively I will say that we need to do a better job passing the ball than we did against New York. Doing so will allow us to continue to run and use a balanced attack.

Defensively, we were horrible against the run and the pass. My hope is that we can at least slow down one of those two elements.

Don't turn the ball over.

Convert 3rd downs.

Stop Atl on 3rd downs.

Win!

7-1 when Cam doesn't turn the ball over.

Turner gets like 1 YPC but they're 3-0. The Falcons are not about the run game.

Which means he will only get 4 per carry tomorrow. :)

Also, just saw via rotoworld that Applewhite has been ruled out for the game. Hopefully Alexander takes full advantage of the playing time he will be receiving, especially with Hardy a little banged up.


Oh no, we are screwed. Applewhite is averaging 1 tackle per game. We are toast now that we won't have Applewhite making his weekly tackle..
