Why the Panthers may be our biggest Threat and not the Falcons

In 2012 we swept the Bucs who swept the Panthers who swept us ... And everyone got a piece of Atlanta ...

From an analytical perspective which entails me putting my Biased team spirit aside , the Panthers are fundamentally a problem for our style of Football ... Offensively and Defensively ...

To display how I came to this conclusion it's really simple actually , you take everything that were horrible at and line them up with what our opponents do best ...

Defensively they destroyed us in 2012 !

Carolina has 2 healthy Studs at RB ... Carolina has a devastating Ground Game and Cam Newton ... In a bad year they Ranked 9th in Rushing ...

We can't tackle ... We can't stop the run ... We ranked 25th in defensive TOP ...

I'm sure you see where that can be a bit of a problem for us .

Given their draft picks and success at the Linebacker position it won't be an easy task to run on them ... Which could make us one dimensional :/

Not only that they are constructing one heck of a defense . I
I understand we have our quarrels with Atlanta but Carolina seems to have our card fundamentally ...

Hopefully the return if SP and Rob Ryan Vaccarro etc ... Can make a difference for us .

Atlanta is at a prime , Tampa is getting some steam , Carolina is figuring it out ... And we are reloading ...
When we play Atlanta it's a Strategic war ... Same with Tampa , Carolina presents a stylistic and physical problem that the Redskins , Seakhawks and 49ers have , whom we have all lost to including the panthers as of late ...

You Can't Say Impossible without first saying Im Possible ...

We'll be able to throw on them. Probably have trouble containing Cam Newton though. Carolina is always the most scary team we face to me. We've got bad luck against them. They've got our number in a way.

I agree with Rez, it seems like no matter what kind of team carolina throws at us they always seem to give us fits.

Any analysis based on last year is no analysis at all.

We have a 3-4 defense now and that does a better job of shutting down the mobile QB.

Hopefully. I don't trust Will Smith to slow down anything but the average speed of our linebacking core. Start Junior!!

If Will Smith is starting Week 1 at Jack LB instead of Junior (and not because of injury to Junior) then I will lose so much faith in our coaching staff. And please people, don't even say that you're skeptical of Junior's ability in pass coverage because he played linebacker for 3 seasons at Temple before transferring to Stillman for his senior season and switching to defensive end. He's clearly the answer not Will Smith.

There you geaux...

We now have an extra linebacker to attack with...

Plus...

We WILL run the ball and allow Grubbs and Evans to pound that defense and wear it down...

And as far as their running game, John Jenkins was drafted for that purpose with Jordan and Hicks on the flanks...

This Carolina challenge will be met...

Sky is falling already?

How about we wait until we play the games.
