Thats what I mean.... Newton's deep ball numbers are atrocious this year because they've taken that from him. When he came into the league he threw it down the field a lot. As long as a defensive, scared Head coach is here and Shula his lackey we will continue to have a QB who manages the game and averages like 211 passing per game. It's just stupid. Go get an alex smith
Colin Cowherd asks Brunnell who is the best team in the league - and answers for him "I think we both think Seattle is the best team in the league.... you agree don't you," God Cowherd is SO overbearing.
Brunnell does agree. Then Cowherd asks "Who is the second best team in the league? I think it's San Francisco,"
Brunnell steps in "I think it's the team in North Carolina, I really do,"
Cowherd jumps in "But do you trust Cam in a big game? I don't"
Brunnell: "You know he hasn't let me down these last 8 weeks. I have watched him on film and he's a completely different QB this year. He's really playing great and with that front 7, its a totally different ballgame for him. Carolina is the second best team in the league,"
Cowherd: "You know... back to the NFC West, blah blah blah it's a great division with the Rams being fourth and having a great front 7"
Cowherd does not want to like Cam Newton. I like his show but I want to strangle that fuger.
Now it is known. Sunday Night is for first place in the the division. If we win it, I believe many legacies will be forever changed in this game. Rivera, Newton, a lot of the guys on this team, aging Smitty, Kuechly, Mitchell. It is a chance to really create something special. If we win, I believe we will host a playoff game in the divisional round - we will secure a bye. We will play in the NFC Championship game against seattle with a chance to go to the super bowl and everyone will know us and respect our guys. It is a win that could grant us into the echelon of the elites of the league with the current core.
Everyone has the Saints winning this. All the experts will be on them. Most of the public. Even probably some of our own fan base doesn't believe we can do it.
This is a major chance to fire the first shot and put all the pressure on the saints for the rest of the season.
This is the biggest game of Newton and Rivera's life. This truly is for all the marbles. I don't know if I've ever wanted a regular season game so bad. Go in there to that putrid dome where people were shitting all over a few years back and play our best game and wreck them because we have the most dominating player in the game today at QB and the best front 7 in football.
We can be Seattle if we play our best game. We can beat the saints and become the favorite. I am ready for Sunday night. I just hope all the excitement and build up brings our best effort sunday night.... I just want to see us with a shot until the end win or lose. And I want it for all these guys so bad. I love this group. I don't just want a wildcard berth and a second round loss on the road. I want that bye and home game.... it means so much. It changes everything.
