Panthers + 13.5

Call me crazy, but when does a division game against a veteran, healthy, well coached team get this kind of line, especially when that team in question has never had a problem beating the Saints at home?

Take the points, and hope that the Panthers are what their record indicates.

I am very nervous about whether Fox sees something that the other 7 coaches didn't, and shows the league how to exploit those weaknesses for a win. It could mean bad things come playoff time if we make it (avoiding bad gris-gris.)

..please...

Drew already got sacked an ungodly amount of times in 2 games.
Drew already has been held to no pass TDs in 2 games.
The Saints have committed what? 8 turnovers in the past 2 games?
They've been down by 21 in the second quarter.
They've allowed a running back to run for 150 yards on them.
They've given big plays on special teams that allowed teams to linger.

.. and the Saints still won...

There's only 2 ways to beat these Saints:

1.- shootout and the other team scores last with no time on the clock.
2.- make them quit.

#1 may happen, but with this defense, I like the Saints' chances against the Panthers.
#2 no freaking way.

La neta es chida, pero inalcanzable

I think the panthers game is going to be tough but we beat them by more than we beat the falcons. They don't have the offense to hang with us for 4 quarters like the falcons do.

And if we find a way to keep them in 3rd and longs for most of the game, it's going to be a murder.
