Much More Confident About NE Than SF
Posted 15 November 2013 - 11:12 AM
We're at home, they have a worse offensive line, a worse defense, a better QB but largely incapable wideouts, a slightly better running game if you factor in all the backs, but we're better against the run regardless.
I honestly thought that the Niners had a better chance at winning that last game than we did, but I seriously think we have a much higher chance against the Pats than they have against us.
This isn't thread worthy really, but I just wanted to exude my confidence onto the rest of my less-confident counterparts.
Keep Pounding, nation!! Let's lock in that W!!

I'm way less confident in this game. The reason the Panthers were able to beat the 49ers (besides luck - those fumbles could have gone either way) was because Kaepernick is just straight up not a very good QB. The many articles published after the game showed he's a one-read QB. When you take that read away, he either has to scramble or take the sack and that's exactly what happened. Tom Brady is a HOF QB. He will not be surprised by anything the Panthers are doing and if something isn't working, he's smart enough to change to something that works. He'll be able to put up points, regardless of how good the Panthers D has been playing, so the pressure will be on Cam and the offense to score enough to stay ahead of Brady. If they can get ahead early and run the ball, I could see a win. If they fall behind early, it could get ugly. This is a tough game.

I felt worse about this game than the SF game.
Brady has the ability to exploit our secondary. The SF offense was run oriented and that played to our strength. The Pats offense is much better than the Niners offense.
Now that being said, I believe we can run and score on the Pats.
Getting in a shootout with Brady worries me.

Better I know our Dline will bring the heat and honestly brady hasn't been anything special this season...

If we can run the ball like we did against the Viks and keep Brady off the field I like our chances...
Problems will come if we can't sustain drives.

New England's offense is not the scoring machine that it once was. Outside the Steelers game (and the Steelers are GOD AWFUL on defense), the NE offense has been very middle of the road.
They are only avg'ing 2 pts per game more than ours.
Pressure Brady and run the ball....and we will win.
