If Mccoy and Hyde could only combine for 55 yards rushing, what chance do we have? Those are teams built to run the ball and couldn't. Run the ball 2 quarters will be a recipe for failure IMO.

It sure would be a lot better than not knowing what the hell we're doing at all!

IMO..the only chance we have against them is to throw the ball. They are very very stout against the run so far this yr. Mccoy only got only got 9 yrds rushing against them. Carlos Hyde only got 45 yrds against them in week 1. If we go into this trying to be "balanced" this game will get out of hand. We need to revert to the days of pass to set up the run. Its the only chance we have i feel.

Now onto our defense. I think this Carolina team is one our group should be able to handle. Newton is still rusty as hell. He was sacked 6 times yesterday. So I think we need to just go all GW on them and blitz early and often. I don't see any other way to play defense atm with this group. We struggle to play zone, we struggle to play man, what else is there but to just say fack it..blitz the hell out of them.

All I have..what do you guy's think?
Excellent game plan. And if running doesnt work, PASS SOME MORE. Dont waste downs on runs. If you just need to feel like we're running, THROW A SHORT PASS to a running back. There-- We ran. Lets stop pretending we can run.

I'd like to add to Charity Mike's Game Plan this: "One receiver, one man"... Use the rest to spy out Cam Newton, because he is not a quarterback. He is an oversized RB, who sometimes throws, and not very well. #1, pretend you're covering (like you've done for 2 weeks), but really, set up to stop Newton's runs... Thats the only real thing he can do to you. Force him to pass, and we'll finally get some INTs.

That said, Kick Their Azz !!!!!!!!!

Re: Ok..On to The Pathers

It is bad news for Mr Olsen, and I hope for a healthy recovery, I don't wish injury on any player, but that should help us somewhat.....a little "break" for is..
