two very inconsistent teams...too hard to know what might happen.

I remember the last time the Hawks were in Charlotte and it was a snoozer

This one's pretty simple to me... contain Lynch as much as possible. If we hold him to ~120 yards and one TD, that's a victory for our D.

...and, run the ball, run the ball, run the ball. They have good pash rush and excellent DBs, if we can't establish the run, we're screwed.

On the surface most gameplans seem pretty simple. Executing them while preventing the other guys from knocking you off of your gameplan is a bit more complex.

If we do exactly what we want going in we'll win. In reality it'll be somewhere in the middle probably.

I think we'll win but I think it'll be close.

The read option will not work against the Seachickens- their defense is very fast, even more so than the rest of the league where the read option is quickly becoming the Panthers achilles heel.

I've never been a big fan of the RO either, but the reality is, it has worked for us. We were more successful Sunday out of the RO than out of more traditional formations, averaging over 7 yards per carry. We keep getting that sort of production and you won't see it go away anytime soon.

After watching all four games and the preseason, I think part of the problem for the defense is the focus on takeaways. Instead of making the tackle when a running back is stopped, most of the defensive backs are only trying to get a takeaway. That lead to the problems defending the running game in all of our games.

that was the sludgy game in 2007 that was a scoreless tie until the fourth quarter right?

also matt moore's first career start iirc. it was something of an upset because the seahawks were cruising to their 700th straight NFC west title and the panthers had lost 5 or 6 of the last 7 games at that point.

Carroll (in todays Seattle paper) saying he's sticking with Wilson for the start Sunday, over Matt Flynn....which means gobs of people wearing NCSU shirts pulling for the 'Hawks.....Hope I'm wrong. Cats are pizzed.....

Carolina 31

Seattle 17

i got this little suspicion that at the last moment flynn will get the ok to start....or if things aren't going their way that wilson will get pulled and flynn will step in.

i'm not really crazy about that at all but we really don't have a good record against backup or replacement QBs.

And if we didnt make that 4th &1, what would've been said. We put them on the one yard line. The odds were against the Falcons getting down field.
