Keys to Victory - Seahawks at Panthers

Oct 03 2012 07:04 AM Zod Carolina Panthers
After a much improved game against the Falcons, fans are wondering which Panthers team will show up on Sunday. I am not ready to give up on this 1-3 team But lets face it, Seattle is also 1-3 team. Lets not count their win against Greenbay and the worst officiating call in years.

This is a very winnable game, here is how.

The Seahawks have a fantastic running back in Marshawn Lynch. Lynch is leading the league in rushing yards per game at 105. Throw in the fact that the Panthers run defense ranks 25th in the league will be trying to stop him and you can pretty much assume Marshawn will run for over 100 yards on Sunday..... but that's ok!

Lynch ran for 118 yards against St Louis, and lost the game 19-13. However, he only ran 20 times.

The Seahawks trailed the entire second half of the game. Once the Seahawks are playing from behind and forced to throw the ball, they put the game in the hands of their 5'10 rookie QB. (He is listed at 5'11 but that's being generous). That QB threw 3 picks last Sunday.

So this week the Panthers job is to make the Seahawks play from behind.

Seattle allows the second fewest points and yards in the NFL. YIkes,

Taking a closer look, their weakness appears to be stopping third down conversions, where they rank 24th in the league.

To win this game, the Panthers must put themselves in manageable 3rd down situations and do what they have not been good at so far this season, convert them. Firstly, this means play a perfect game in terms of penalties. Holding calls and false starts will definitely lose this game for us. Secondly, you are not going to go sideline to sideline on this group rushing the ball. They have the speed to shut down the option. Oh, and the wildcat? Tear it out of the playbook and burn it.

Play them straight up and win the battle in the trenches. A healthy Jonathan Stewart should be able to pick up some yards in this game. I don't expect Deangelo to do much against them unfortunately.

In short, the offense must take a slow methodical approach in this game. Field goals can beat this offensively inept Seahawks team, a big change from playing the Saints, Giants, and Falcons. There won't be many home run 20+ yard plays. Run the ball and complete underneath passes that the defense gives you. Yes, I know this goes completely against Chudzinski's philosophy, but I for one am hoping he will make this one game exception.

Week 1, "Vincent Jakcson" is gonna burn us". Wrong.

Week 2, "Jimmy Graham is going to be dunking on our goal post all day". Only did it once.

Week 3, everyone got burnt.

Week 4, "Julio Jones is gonna but rape Josh Norman's little anus LOL" Wrong.

Week 5, "Marshawn Lynch won't be stopped cuz it's his goal!"


post would actually mean something if carolina wasn't 1-3.

week 1 - martin - 24 carries for 95 yards
week 2 - thomas - 9 carries for 110 yards
week 3 - brown - 20 carries for 113 yards
week 4 - turner - 13 carries for 103 yads
week 5 - lynch - ?

seattle's offense flows thru lynch, so carolina should sell out to stop the run, and force wilson to beat them...

no problem, except carolina has the worst defense seattle has seen to date. it doesn't stop the run, the pass rush has only showed up once, and the secondary doesn't exist.

on the flip side, carolina inconsistent offense is facing it's toughest defense to date.

i hope that the panthers dismantle the seahawks...but i'm not getting my hopes up.

Lol look what they did to Rogers.

All it will take us for Cam to throw a pick and that's ball game.

Sooo......I guess the Rams are heading to the NFC Championship after winning over the all powerful, unstoppable Seattle Seahawks. :rolleyes:

Anyone who thinks the Rams are headed to the NFCC game is a jackass.

U said that the Seahawks haven't faced a QB like Newton. Who is a better QB Cam or Rogers?

Yup. Sorry guys but this is the truth. The truth hurts sometimes.

That chapter is yet to be written. It does however, sound like you have "wood" for Seattle.
I'll ask again: who is the better QB? Cam or Rogers?

I'll check back later I gotta go lay out my Seahawks jersey for Sunday.

Your saying our 6'5" QB cant get 1 yard? Quit playing the what if game...... When you need a win, the ball shouldnt be in the other teams hands.



That same QB didn't convert a 4th &1 in the Bucs game
WRs will have to win 1on1 vs the seahawk DBs, chud take advantage of the quick strike air game. and the run defense will have to tackle and contain Marshawn. if not than expect a lot of this

Probably my favorite SFW gif in the world lol
What I would like to see is some pissed off Panther football, no more finesse play calling, no more prevent defense. Let’s see some smash them in the face old time football and if we lose at least they will know they were in a game. Another thing I would like to see is coach Rivera open up a little more, a little more fired up, not Rex Ryan type but somewhere in the middle.

Be sure and grab your Romo jersey too...we play Dall-ass after the bye ;)
This is a classic shoot yourself in the foot game for the Panthers. We have to make them play from behind but their strengths are our weaknesses and our coaches are too inept to gameplan to exploit their weaknesses, too stubborn to leave the gimmicks where they belong for even one game. Chud will continue to try to ram the read-option down their throats and I doubt it will work as well as Power I's would. This is a winnable game but the Panthers are blackbelts in the art of giving away "winnable" games.

Rogers is ATM, but that wasn't what he was saying. He said the seaguls haven't faced a QB like Cam. And they haven't. Cam is much more mobile than any they've faced to date. On a side note Greenbay hasn't looked to be the same team as last year. There best game so far has been against the Saints.
If Panthers come out as strong as Romney, IT'S A WIN !!!!!!

GTFOH with that crap! This is a football forum! Put it in the right spot.

Taking a closer look, their weakness appears to be stopping third down conversions, where they rank 24th in the league.

and we rank 22nd in 3rd down conversions
ugh, this isn't gonna be pretty
So far this year we have lost to teams with a superior D line. Im worried. This is winnable but it will be on the Coaching staff to call the right plays. Hopefully our O-line continues to improve.

And dont forget they play a mobile QB every day in practice. I doubt we catch them completely unprepared for it.

And this game should then finally shut the few up who dont think Stewart and his threat impact a teams overall defensive gameplan.

Gameplan for a D isn't to have their DL go all out and rush the QB with a fully healthy Car lineup.
I dont fully understand that either. At least not if we were to use Tolbert in the same capacity that we use Stew. Not saying he is as capable of a runner but he is certainly tough between the tackles. He would still force them to respect our power running capabilities.
Keys to victory?


Coaches- Grow a pair.

Players- Execute.

Simple as that.

So when did our D suddenly gain your trust?

Your saying our 6'5" QB cant get 1 yard? Quit playing the what if game...... When you need a win, the ball shouldnt be in the other teams hands.


He didn't get it on the play before. Well, he did get it, but then fumbled it away. Fwiw, I would have liked to see Stewart run it on 3-1 instead of Newton. Just as likely to pick up 1 yard, and less likely to fumble.
I'd like to see a healthy dose of Stewie and quick passes to Smitty and Olsen for moderate chunks. They're D is rock solid, but if we can keep the 1st and 2nd downs to positive gains, we can chew up the clock and move the ball.

Don't get cute, just run the damn ball. We have so much invested in 4 more than capable runners. Stew is the perfect RB for this, too. DWill gets stopped at the line too much and his home run threat is negated by that in this game.

Coaches please don't fug this one up
Let A. Smith (#36) play. This is crunch time and he is very impressive in moving the play down field, which is a move we need more of.
Oops double post
