Great stat. The Panthers are ranked #1 in pressure percentage but only rank 16 in blitz percentage. Think about that. If you can get that much pressure with just your front four, big things are bound to happen. In Snow we trust.
this is a trap game if I've ever seen one
Thursday night/short week (check)
away game (check)
Houston team who no one believes in but has been competitive their first two games (check)
Starting a rookie QB who we don't have much film on (check)
The panthers should win this game, that being said we have really left off the gas peddle in both our first two games. If we show up and do that for four quarters in Houston I could totally see Houston winning a low scoring slugfest and us all standing there scratching our nuts
Having so many athletes that can cover and tackle top to bottom is what's really opening the defense up and allowing these mixed packages. I really hope we can retain both Reddick and Jackson. The only problem is they're playing so well we are going to have to pay top dollar for both with a lot of big contracts up coming, even though we will be able to afford it for next year.
Shaq has been a stud in coverage too. It's been interesting how few snaps Carter Jr. has gotten too. Seems that the MLB position isn't as important as it used to be in this scheme.
