If that's what you believe, I'm not sure where the disagreement is
My point was that the phrase "stop the run and force Cam to pass" is a misleading statement because teams don't game-plan and run defenses that are designed around stopping the run. They aren't run blitzing or stacking the box against Carolina, they are using four man rushes and light box formations with cover 2 and cover 3 zone schemes as primary defensive formations against Carolina - these are pass defenses. The fact is that, for the past two years, the formula has been: "Stop the pass and you stop the Panthers, because they can't run on any defensive alignment" - especially last year. During 2011 there wasn't really a good defense against Carolina, which is why when they started running passing defenses primarily, our run game took off, where as early in the season it was our passing attack that was prolific when teams were attempting to sell out on the run.
