Three ways to handle Brees, jam receivers at the line, put him on his back and ball control.
Do those things and Saints are beatable.
The Dome thing is psychological, just like playing outside is psychological.
Their defense is not concerning; but, Cam can't have any lazy throws, he will need to be perfect, and that is the one big difference between him and Russell Wilson. Sometimes Cam's athleticism is the windshield and sometimes its the bug. It needs to be more windshield come Sunday night.
Tell you the truth, of all the over hyped teams, the Saints are one of them. Every time I've watched them on Sunday ticket, just was not impressed.
Panthers fan talking trash. LOL. Your team has been the punching bag of the NFC South for 4 years running. A 5 game winning streak doesn't change that. Unlike you i'm not buying into the ESPN bullshit about the Panthers being anything more than an average team with a good defense that will miss the playoffs, again.
All anyone needs to know about you is your name on this board.
I didn't think that a rephrase was necessary with the seasoned posters on this board.
CK has more big time wins than Newton and until that changes, until Newton leads the team from come from behinds or until he gets them at least to a playoff game, in the media's eyes, the Ws in big time games are all that matters.
Newton does not have any of those, and no, wins in the 2nd half of the season against teams that have already wrapped up playoff berths don't matter.
Again everyone on this board knows how the media portrays things and that's what I was trying to say.
As for me, and I love Cam Newton, I want him to be the best that ever played or at least to do what Jake did, get to the playoffs and have a chance but the truth is, I don't care who plays, I care about winning.
The NFL schedule makers were not kind to Carolina. Carolina plays both after their bye weeks.
Against the better/best teams, the margin for winning is slim.
When the plays are there, they have to be made.
Those teams know too, the Panthers have a 4th string guard and they will know that Barner, Barner of all people, is going to be one of the gunners on special teams (to me, that is a concern) and they know that Luke can over pursue and they know Newton has issues with a pocket collapsing in the middle and throws high when nervous or underpressure.
The saying, 'big time players make big time plays in big games' is true.
Cam Newton, you are the Panthers big time player, I believe you are Superman, come on down. Take over the game. Win it for your team.
Offensively, punch them in the gut and run at them....they are too fast to run laterally, cut backs and such will work ..misdirection will work. along with screens and TE screens and for the love of god, please please, get rid of that receiver screen for this game.
Cam needs to make his mind up quickly, two reads, not their go. Their defense is too good to pussy foot around with....be decisive.
Defensively, DO NOT OVER PERSUE...DO NO BLITZ very often...must play contain and stay home...the way Colin makes all that noise is teams over pursuing him.
Spy on Colin (TD) and a spy on Vernon...make them beat our DTs with Gore.
No turn-overs, smart smash mouth football and the Panthers can win this game.
