It may just be the insecurity of years of losing, but I've got a feeling this game isn't going to be a blowout at all...

 

I feel it too.  It's going to take a couple of close wins where Cam hits the huddle needing a drive and a score, where we actually DO drive and score, and win, for me to shake that feeling.

 

Back in the teens, when we were down 2 with a minute and a half and the ball, there was this feeling like, "Ok, we've got them just where we want them!"  That was in Jake's heyday, and we haven't had that feeling here since the playoff disaster of 2008.

My thing is, our defensive line is so good.  The refs have slowed down on the holding calls, even though their blatant................especially the Bucs game.  So, lets hope they bring the flags or something.  

 

Ref sympathy showed up again in the Rams game. Blatant or not, they're not calling holding like they were in the early season games. I remember years ago, a not-holding, picked up flag was explained, that JP was "powering through" the o-lineman so there was no holding. Uh. Hello? Isn't that what good DT's do? Still doesn't mean it's ok for the o-lineman to grab him as he powers right by him on his way to the QB. It's a darn shame when you have to play against the refs and the opposing team.

 

BUT I doubt his guys will all listen to Nolan. There's more fire-in-the-gut than Smitty on the Panthers now. It's contagious. :rock:  However we celebrate whatever on the field, I hope our guys are smart enough to not do it with Falcon players near by.

It's great isn't it?  How many years has it been since we could talk smack and expect to be able to back it up.  We have our defense back and the offense is efficient and productive.  This year is starting to mirror 2005 in starting 1-2 and then winning 3 of the next 4.  I don't know if we can keep winning but I love the idea that we have the team to do it and the talent to keep on winning as long as we stay healthy.  Only this time we have the depth at running back as well.

Let it go... It is ok to believe.  This isn't the same ole Panther team not even the same Panther team in week one and two.

 

They will come out totally focused and protect OUR turf.   Atlanta will be motivated and will bring their "A" game.  I could care less what sports talk radio or any of the bandwagon fans say.  The team of Atlanta Falcons are going to come into BOA stadium wanting to beat us and beat us good.   Remember we told THEM "To Get the Fk Off Our Field Too" last game we played.    I am sure they would love to come into BOA stadium and be able to say it walking off OUR field.

 

We'll be plenty motivated and ready for their "A" game. 

 

One thing our team has been saying during press conferences is... this is the NEXT GAME. 

 

They are focused.
