I was listening to Pat Kirwin talk about the game this weekend and he said the Panthers don't have to change what they did on offense even though they scored only 13 points.  He said our first and second drives lasted for 22 plays combined which meant they weren't stopping us.  We stopped ourselves and settled for field goals.  On the third drive we run the ball for 15 yards and then start throwing and get stopped.  He said we need to run the ball and control the clock and we should be fine.

 

On defense we have to stop trying so hard to jam the receiver that we don't play good defense afterwards.  We need to pressure Brees and keep things in front of us.  They are going to score points but you beat them by limiting their opportunities and slowing them down so that they have to earn everything.  Take away everything deep and make them throw in front of us and stop the YAC.  Make them settle for field goals and we should win the game.

Yeah re watching the game.. we missed a lot of jams.   I don't know how we fix it though.  You can't give the Saints receivers clean releases and we don't have the play making ability to run straight man for any extended period of time.  Seattle did a lot of dropping lineman into coverage.  Plus they do have the ability to play straight man.  Same with Rams..they actually have the secondary that you can play man and not expect to be torched.  Going to be interesting.

I think last game on defense we tried too hard to be the Seahawks and forgot we don't have the secondary they have. We need to be ourselves. On offense Chud I mean Shula needs better play calling in the redzone. We drive down the field with ease then we just go full retard.

It makes sense on paper, but I hate to show the Saints respect, but they are not most teams. They have a dynamic offense at times.

 

What Kirwin says is true... but we also have to get nasty and really try to bring the pain and go after Brees. Also when the receivers do make the catch, which they will... make sure to hit them hard with everything you got. Make them not want to catch the ball with both hands and fear getting hit the next time their number is called. No mercy. 

 

Also, turnovers... we need turnovers. Attack the ball. punch it out. Give our offense more opportunities to score and keep the ball away from them.

thinking that field goals was a good idea was a bad idea...esp. against the saints.

 

it sent an early signal to the team that you didn't trust the offense or defense. and he did it twice.  that set the tone for the day.

 

we don't have to change much from what we do most weeks to win. what happened in new orleans was that we changed what we did back to what we used to do when we were losing.

In all honesty, the Offense troubles were in the redzone, just like last Sunday's game. Had the fieldgoals against the Saints been tds and the defense secondary weren't so laxed, and stopped Drew from throwing to whichever receiver of choice, the Panthers could have easily won that. Fix those small problems and Sunday's game can be the Panthers to win.

 

This team is very close to being a very strong contending team but they have isses they seriously need to handle before they get exposed. Remember the media isn't going to sit and disect this team and point out the weakness like they do with the more preferred teams. it up to the Panthers to not believe that there isn't anything wrong with their team simply because no one is making a big deal. They need to recognize their problems and fix them. Learn from the Houston Texans mistakes. 

 

Also, judging from the Saints last two losses, getting to Drew early is the name of the game. Get him out of the out of his comfort zone means getting him out of the pocket and getting in his face.

Truer words were never spoken.Playing on the road continues to be a problem for the Saints who are now 7-0 at home and 3-4 on the road, including only one win in their last five road games.

The Saints have averaged 18.4 points a game on the road compared to an average of 32.9 points a game at home,a trend that I hope continues Sunday against the Panthers.
