Stop the run and make Cammie beat you.
Not sure Manti is quick enough to spy him, but need to keep him contained

Lattimore negates Funchess, so whoever does draw Olsen will get help

The offense needs to prepare for a shootout potentially. I think this game has consequences in the future. I hope we win but when we lost to LA we really hurt our chances at avoiding this scenario.

My thought exactly. He changes the game.

I'd put Lattimore on Olson but I forsee Marcus Williams and our safeties covering him. The only way T'eo covers Olson is in zone coverage. T'eo is solid within 10-15 yards down the field but if we blitz everyone and T'eo ends up on Olson, we better get to Cam.

One, or even two (Tampa) games wouldn't have made a difference I don't think. As the #3 seed we'd be facing the FailClowns for the third time. It turned out that the pivotal game of the season actually was the first one against Minnesota in terms of playoff seeding.

But it's water under the bridge. We've shown that we're better than the Kitties this year. Sunday is just another opportunity to demonstrate that.

12th man aka dome sweet dome.

Bad match ups for Carolina. Don't be surprised to see another 30 burger put up by Brees & company.

Biggest fear is our Injuries. Do we have enough depth?
