Falcons @ Panthers - phocis850 - 12-03-2012 11:39 AM
What do you think we need to do to win this game without worry?
I ask this because our D make an incredible play and forced Cam to fumble. If they got that first down, game over.
Last game, the Panthers played nearly perfect defense. You may disagree, but that was the best showing of their defense that I've seen all year.
With our offense playing better on the road, and our defense playing better at home, what will the outcome be? We all agree that this should be an easy win considering the records, but look what happened to SF at the Rams yesterday. Nothing is a gimme in this league.
Every NFC South division game is played really close. I believe we will win this game, but I'd prefer to give us more room come the 4th quarter.
SIDE NOTE: My wife pointed out that it's never a good thing when we start out fast. We always want to and its a good thing to see on the board, but she's happened to noticed that the games we start off fast in, the other team always seems to crawl back and have a chance to win the game. Maybe the players get a little lax or something, but we need to be more like the Pats where the throat is always being stepped on.

I think the Panthers game was one of the best 2 or 3 games by our team offensively aside from the sacks. I don't know how you call the Panthers defensive giving up 426 (305 passing, 121 rushing) as a near perfect game.

From the couple of Patriots games I've watched this year they seem to start slow then pour it on late

As a fan at this point I'm not to worried about this game. My thing is to win at least 2 more games tie up HFA advantage and not get any major injuries. I'd like Smitty to rest Asante, Julio, Jerry, and anyone else who is a little banged up now a loss won't mean much right now and getting these guys some needed rest will be alot more worthwhile.
I'm a fan and not a player or coach so I can now breath a little easier on game day and not worry so much.

We will win this game. The Panthers are one loss away from spiraling out of control on their season a la last year's bucs.

Panthers are spiraling. They lost to KC.
Their coach is a dead-man-walking, and they are playing youth now, ready to blow it all up.
We score on our first drive, they will wilt.
