"I'll be honest, we practiced a little nervous,'' coach Ron Rivera said after Friday's practice. "You could just see it. Guys making checks they shouldn't. Or seeing pressure and turning the wrong way.

"Not a whole bunch, but I noticed it.''

Rivera didn't hesitate to share his observations and thoughts with the players. He told them to pull back and refocus, reminding this is only a big game because it is the next one.

But it is big in terms of the NFC playoff picture. Carolina (5-3) has won four straight games to move within a game of the New Orleans Saints in the NFC South. San Francisco (6-2) has won five straight to stay within a game and a half of the Seattle Seahawks.

Some might take the nervousness as a bad omen. Not Rivera.

"It's a good omen, because they realize how important it is,'' he said.

Good. Being nervous because you are in position to excell leads to extra focus.

If we lose Sunday, it's not going to be because of this

That is unless everybody visibly looks as scared at their respective positions as Joe Adams fielding a punt

Guys will be nervous until they get into the game.  Then all that nervousness goes away and they just play the game.

There is no moral victories here ladies and gents. I think they know that. I want them to be nervous. Nervous means your taking it seriously. I don't think they took ATL seriously and it showed in the first half.

Nervous? Come on man. Most of these guys have played in bigger games in college. Swag up.

 

Cam has a history of playing his best under the spotlight in big games in college.

I hope our new found confidence brings this aspect of Cam out in the NFL.

 

We can use a big boost from Cam this Sunday. A 70+ yard touchdown run along with some good throws to Ginn and Olsen will go a long way to helping us win.
