Most of us agree we should be able to shut down the Buc's offense but, I see a lot of people worried about the Buc's defense? I'll agree they had a top 15 defense first 4 games. Since then the Defense has imploded allowing 31 to the Falcons and 31 to the Eagles back to back. Shady pounded them in the ground game. The front 4 causes some concern but so did the Rams front 4?

With Tampa, we find ourselves playing down to them often.

 

The exception was a few years back with Double Trouble ran for several hundred yards and ripped em a new one.

We lost to the Bucs twice last year, since then they have lost Freeman, Martin and about half the defense.

Posters are so afraid of confidence around here its amazing.


Winning is what Cam was accustomed to before he came here. He is in his element.


Watch and see.

I've heard the same pessimism before evey game this year.

they still have the ability to make carolina's offense one dimensional without selling out to stop the run like the rams.

 

toss records and injuries aside...divisional games are always dangerous.

Tampa can make us one dimensional.....that simply is never a good thing.

They also have talent in the secondary.....so being forced to pass into a secondary with playmakers simply isn't an ideal way to play

and for good reason...

 

newton was accustomed to winning before he came to the nfl, but things have changed since them...he has now become accustomed to losing.

NFL is about matchup. Tampa causes us problems...

Realizig that isn't being pessimistic.

Being forced to pass, with a bad OL against a secondary that features legit talent.... isn't a scenario to be overconfident about.

Cam isn't going to be on fire every game with his short/intermediate game. If that happens on a day we play a D that can make us one dimensional.....we got problems.

Ya the biggest thing is they won't need to sell out to stop the run like the rams did, which left them vulnerable in coverage. Plus the bucs have a talented defensive backfield, I don't like the matchup too well

We can move the ball on any defense

 

When it comes to redzone time, no field goals allowed unless we're clearly in the lead

the StL defense blows, btw.  They are 30th in rush and rush yds allowed, and in the 20s for everything else.  Not sure why anyone cares about them.  Even when you look at sacks and +/-, they are middle of the road.  Not sure we can hold our heads up that we beat up on a top defense.  Probably have the most 1st round draft picks in the front 7, but that's about it.

 

Tampa, however, is top 10 in just about everything.
