We didn't get roughed up; we simply failed to make adjustments.

I guarantee you that if we had caught the with a screen or two for big yards, that would have slowed them down.

The Rams weren't playing for anything but pride, plus Fischer was butt hurt that Ryan bailed on them for the Saints.

The kittens will try to be aggressive, but if the Saints get up 7-10 points, they will curl up in the corner and purr like the good *****cats they are!

Which should favor the Saints! We should see a lot of runs and short passes.

They have the better run game then we do, I don't see that as a favor to us... We have the better screen game, but we have to keep Cam contained like the first game.

Good post Triman. You're right, the team that has the ***s will be the winner. If both teams come and plays balls to the wall it's a tossup.

Are we tough enough? I despise those questions.

The climate in Charlotte overall is about the exact same climate we have here. That crowd isn't much of a factor because most of the Charlotte population are transplants and fans of other teams. A few have adopted the Panthers as their second team, but will shut up if we get ahead early.

Jets, Seahawks, Rams. They all roughed us up.

And the screens? They looked predictable and easy to cover.

Our lack of preparation for STL is what killed us, NOT how the Rams played.

This team still needs to overcome playing good teams on the road.
