Luke Keuchly and Star Lotuleilei will make us the most dominant run defense in the league. The Seahawks game plan will rest on the shoulders of Russel Wilson. Then it is just a game of Panther and mouse between Wilson and our pass rush.

 

1. Luke Keuchly

2.Cam Newton

3.Home Field advantage. I'm looking at you Panther fans!

The Seahawks are a very small/quick defense. This concerns me because our top RB right now is Deangelo Williams and both our backups are speed guys. What I want to see is a healthy Tolbert running people over. I want to see us establish a power run up the gut. We can't beat them around the edge unless our big boys can pull well. Amini was probably our best pulling guard and he looks like a scratch.

Probably the single most important factor. The thing that cost us more wins than anything last year: coaching decisions. We need to call timeouts at the correct times. We need to go for it or play conservative at the correct times. When its 3rd and goal from the 7 we need Mike Shula to call a decent play. I absolutely hate the fade because our best fade runner is 5'9". I see coordinators go to this play over and over again and it never works. It didn't even work in the Super Bowl with Mike Crabtree.

My #1 reason: Luke Kuechly

 

Why? The last time we played Seattle, that was the first time Kuechly played MLB. Kuechly had a very good game then, but over that course till now he has gotten better, smarter, and more comfortable. I'll take Kuechly over Wilson.

I'm excited to see this defense against a good offense, and especially a good running back with a downhill running attack.

Seahawk game plan--They will try to run the ball using misdirections/cutbacks.  They will roll out to take one DE and the DTs out of the pass rushing mode.  That is fine because it reduces the field by 50% or more. Slants, roll outs, cut backs.  Maybe a screen or draw on occasion.  And a lot of punts.

Seattle is a three point favorite.  Panthers win by 8.  Mark that.
