I think a real key to this game will be how Cam handles the all out blitz which Ryan will bring early and often.  Ryan is looking at the Miami game where they blitzed early and loaded the box to try and take away the run. Frankly it worked and it made it difficult for us to get anything established.  When they did the same thing to Wilson he eluded the blitz and found receivers over the top for big gains.  Ryan's defense is a high risk high reward kind of defense. You have to beat it early and he will back off the heavy blitz and they will be exposed as they were on Monday night.

 

On defense it will come down to how well we play in man coverage and taking away the big play.  They will take shots deep against us within the first 5 plays to try and get a big score plus loosen up the underneath.  If we can play well 1 on 1 and stop the deep shots we should be fine.  If not it could be a long day.

Most ofnus feel this will be a high scoring affair fir both teams.

I wonder how our defense feels about that.

Something tells me they are licking their chops to go into their stadium, and dismantle the saints.

Our defense will not be scored on easily.

Panthers have to come out strong and get on the board early.  Keep them out of the endzone in the 1st qtr.  Cam needs to temper his excitement and not overthrow his receivers.  Got to won the turnover battle.

 

This is a big game but the Panthers have had plenty of practice...NE/Mon night, SF, a Thurs nite game.  Young players have some seasoning.

 

Panthers can win this.

 

 

I was thinking the same thing.  We can't let the Saints get off to a hot start.  If we keep them to less than 10 points or less in the first half that would be huge.  And Cam does have a tendency to get a little over-excited early in big games.  I hope Shula calls some quick, easy throws for him early on to get the jitters out.

This team has been waiting to play this game since they beat the Patriots. They've been focused on it almost too much and it almost cost us against the Dolphins. They'll be ready to play,

Honestly I ain't worried about the Saints right now. We are 2-0 this season beating teams coming off Monday night games.

 

Pros and Cons.

 

Pros- Saints have Brees Graham and the home crowd behind them in the dome.

Cons- They are coming off a Monday night game and they stayed an extra day up in Seattle because of the plane broke down. The will be extra tired in the process and having less time to prepare and coming off a lose.

 

Pros and Cons

 

Pros- Panthers coming off a blow out against the Bucs at home and we are on an 8 game streak right now. We have the game tape from Monday night game for our guys to study and see what the Seahawks did to keep Saints down. Plus we are rested up and getting back CJ and  a few other guys from injuries for this game.

 

Cons- Cams struggles at times with his passing and our running game has struggle the past few weeks or so. Aside from Tolbert. We are in the dome which will hurt them at times and that might cause them to make mistakes on both sides of the ball.

 

Overall it looks like we have the upper hand on a Saints team that is going to be tired very little to prepare for us and coming off of a lose. We have to take care of business against them. It will be a tough game. But this game should be ours with no problem.

The only thing I'm predicting is a lot of fights especially in the second half. That means the Saints will be frustrated and when that happens they are losing and start trying to intimidate the better team. I say that's the Saints MO. So bring it on WhoDat Gate.

This game might depend on the play of our safeties not biting on play action. If our D maintains their discipline on play fakes we could win this game walking home.

All due respect to NE and San Fran, but this is probably the most complete team we have faced since week 1.

But we can play with anybody.
