I hope GW has the defense ready to defend the option play against Carolina!
 
I watched a highlight show and it showed the Panthers running the option and other college-syle plays.

I hope the defense is ready!!

I honestly think Gregg Williams, in an irony of genius, recommended drafting key personnel, especially for our defensive line, who are quick to stop the run.

Noticed our d-line, even with a rookie starting, has held strong on run stop all season long. It's now maturing and pressuring the QB. I believe our defense is getting better and we don't realize how many young players we have out there.

I think Carolina is a legit threat in our division in coming years. They're a potential dog fight twice a year for the next few years, where I think the Saints have "Atlanta's number" and Tampon Bay is just crumbling. That said, I believe Gregg Williams and Mickey Loomis made moves toward speed and youth to beef up our defense specifically with Carolina and Scam Newton in mind.

Just my humble opinion.

Carolina scares me. Not so much this year, but if they can some how pull out a win they will have momentum going into next year. If they draft well and ad a few FA's in key positions they will be challenging us for the South. Im hoping with a year of film Newtons threat becomes less of an issue. As much as I hate to admit it the kid has had one hell of a season.

The Panthers will be a threat until Newton has a Michael-Vick-Esque exposure for fighting Guinea Pigs or something.

I know Gregg loves to blitz all the time, I'd just dial it down a little for this game if I were him, let roman Harper get a couple of shots at taking Newton down. But if we stay with 7-8 in coverage most plays and rush 3-4 players at a time, we can stop the run like we have been doing and still leave a spy to limit newtons running room

I am not sure why but I have always had the gut feeling feeling this guy will be his own worst enemy, not his talent.

Youth. Ability. Agility. "Momma-bred" Arrogance. Great traits to get you through a rookie year, however he will need maturity and ability to read defense to stick around.

The Carolina game will no longer be a slam-dunk as it has been in years past.

The past couple of weeks, G.W. has not blitzed as much. The front 4 seems to be getting better at pressure on their own.

The run defense has been pretty good since the first Atlanta game

HIT THE QB.

When my boys play a spread that's what we teach them. When a qb becomes a running back then you are allowed to hit him. Force him to toss the ball away and possibly create a turnover or make a mistake.

The panthers don't run a ton of option plays like the broncos do but if it happens we need to hit cam

We've been blitzing just as much

The difference is that we've had a couple extra sacks so ppl quit complaining

The pressure has always been there...but one of the most overrated stats wasn't there
