that's too busy
I'm not sure? I've been a member since its inception so that could be the case.
Here, I'll quote some of us over there who are the more rational fans:
Ok, I wanna here everybody's score prediction and winner. Here is mine...
Carolina is on a roll, they are the best team we have played since Indy. Their Defense is for real and Cam Newton is playing quite well. I just have a bad feeling about this game. I don't like that it's sandwiched in between the Saints game. I know we are getting Manningham back and most likely Aldon. I just have a bad feeling about this game....
But I hope I'm wrong
What say you?
Our next two games definitely make me jittery. Carolina is playing very well and their defense is quite legit. I really hope we punch them in the mouth with our running game and VD tears them up through the air. I think it'll be a very interesting matchup since we've been playing some not-so-great teams lately. I still think we can take it 30-20.
it's going to be a tough game... we need to be focused... but we are the better team. Just need to show up and execute.
No doubt they will be fired up to start this game and will give us their best game. This is a game they have to win to be taken seriously. This is a scary game for that reason. I think it is a close game into the fourth quarter but we win by two scores when Cam throws a pick and gets tight. They are heading in the right direction and are looking like a potential wild card but I don't think they are ready for these big games yet. This should be the fox game of the week I think.
I don't think this game is going to be a easy as some people think, however I don't expect this will be a Tampa Bay vs Seattle first half blow out either.
It will be a close game for most. Our defense will keep it close for ~2.5-3 qtrs. We make second half adjustments, sustain longer drives and start to pull away.
If Roman calls a smart/sensible game behind the strength of our OL and run blocking we win this one by at least a TD. If Roman brain farts like he did against IND, we will lose this game by at least a TD.
I don't see CAR man handling us and beating us up in 1-1 match-ups like SEA did. We should have an edge in that regard.
Key stats (as they re every week) are time of possession and turnovers.
