Carolina looking to reduce turnovers

Carolina Panthers Head Coach John Fox participated in a conference call with the New Orleans media following practice today. In the call, Fox discussed the continuing development of their young team quarterbacked by rookie Jimmy Clausen and their priority on reducing the number of turnovers after recording 12 in the first three games. Below is a transcript:




From a Saints related question, is this a tough time to face a team coming off of a loss and do you think you maybe get a more motivated opponent, or do you not buy that?


“I don’t buy into all that. People on the outside look at records. I look at the team. They’re obviously still a very, very talented team. It’s hard to win all of them. They’re a very, very, good football team, defending world champs at their place.”


I know you guys have made the quarterback switch and it didn’t lead to a lot of points last week, but do you like what you’re seeing?



“Yes. We’re a young football team. I think we’re getting better each week. Unfortunately for us, it hasn’t carried over to a win, but when you’re minus six in the turnover ratio and have 12 turnovers after three games, I I’m not sure if you’re going to win no matter how talented you are.”


The Saints have struggled at times against the run and both your guys had big runs against them last year. Is it a matter of guys have been loading up against your run game or are those guys just a couple holes from getting unleashed this year?



“We’re still pretty efficient running the ball. We’re maybe a little short, but we were up over 150 a game last year. Part of it is we’ve been behind. That always staggers your run totals. We need to get that fixed.”

While their talented duo haven't gone off on any one yet, I agree they are scary. Sounds easy but we have to make Clausen beat us. They also don't have a good TE so that should help in keeping 8 in the box.

They will run on us and we better stop it. Bottom line. Score early to make them Pass. Get Pressure on Clausen......

But they can't pass, Jimmy Claussen at QB this should be a fun game.

Fox will use the Atlanta game plan to run it down our throats and try to keep Brees on the bench. He knows he will have limited passing with Claussen so the run will be his game. If we can get points early and force them to throw
the D will have some chances for turnovers.
