they have a punishing run game. i'm worried about that. they have a mobile quarterback - i'm worried about that too. they also have a stifling defense, and that scares me as much as anything.
this will be by far the best team we've faced this year. this is going to be our crucible.
To paperback Chaos, we play damm good football up in here. Sure we have miscues, but we now have the confindence to over come them. In the past, we would have lost this game. The key phrase: In the past!
I'm done short selling our team. We are as good as anyone. Here is the crux of it. If we take care of the ball, we will win. If we turn it over more than them we will lose.
Ding a fuging ling.
We attempt to play hard nosed mistake free football. Today we learned even if do make a few mistakes, we can still spank you.
Is next week the biggest game the Panthers have played in last 5 years?
After mulling this over for a whole 20 seconds, my quick gut feeling is, I can't think of a bigger 1, so... Yes.
A quick search found that 09 season, we went into the last game at home against the aints needing a win to to 500. So, that would be our last "Big Game". 3 1/2 years ago. We won, for those who are research or memory challenged.
You know something - it wouldn't surprise me to find this exact same post on a 49ers message board somewhere. It seems to describe the Panthers perfectly.
Sounds good to say doesn't it. And is sounds good cuz it's true.
Other than the seattle game, which was the first game of the year and an early east coast game for them, what other legitimate offenses have we played? We've played
-buffalo in EJ manuels 2nd game of his career and we gave up 24
- the giants
- the cardinals
-the vikings with matt cassell
-the bucs who are 0-8 and have a rookie at QB
- the falcons who are without 2 of the premier receivers in the game
Our defense has been sensational, i wont take anything away from them, but we've also had a very favorable first 8 games in terms of the offenses weve faced. We have the niners, tom brady, and drew brees twice left on the schedule. Well see real soon whether our defense is top notch or just the benefit of facing weak offenses
We have treated every Offense we have met all year the same. With distain.
We play who we are scheduled.
NG, 0-2, with Eli, ready to turn their season around. Nope, we spanked em'
Cards, fighting to get above 500, and hoping for a run. Nope, we spanked em', yet we lost?
Vikes, well...we spanked em' too.
Rams, had Bradford, we hoping get above 500 and keep the good vibes going. Nope, we spanked em'.
bucs, spanked em'
atl, matt ryan, hoping to turn a bad start around. Nope. spanked em'
6 of our 8 opponents had their starting QB. Are you dismissing these guys totally? Either way. We spanked em'.
