    Agreed. But all things being equal, I think it's going to boil down to keeping Carolina from running the ball effectively. They can control the game that way.

    Believe it or not, that might actually be good. Newton and Rivera have an atrocious record in close games. I think they're like 2-14 or something like that. :lol:

    I don't think it would be a good, I think an effective run game assures a Carolina win. It's not like you're bringing a potent offense to the east coast.

    31 and 38 Total Points I'll take the past 2 weeks

    especially against the "#1 ranked Pass defense in the NFL" (Houston last week)

    Perhaps Houston's pass D was so good because all you had to do was run on them.

    Panthers have a very balanced D.

    Lets see. Peterson started out slow with his first 4 runs of the game going for a total of 1 yards. His next 3 runs went for 27 yards. Giving him 7 rushes for 28 yards at half. However, by the point they got the ball back in the 2nd half, they were down 21-3. His next 3 runs in the 3rd quarter went for 34 yards. By the end of the 3rd, he had 10 rushes for 62 yards but the Vikings were down 28-3.

    When you are getting blown out and failing to sustain drives due to bad QB play, you don't tend to run the ball a lot.

    But shutting down Peterson? BS.

    Now, go ahead and make excuses as to why C.J. Spiller and Andre Ellington ran on your defense. Let me guess, "if you remove their longest run..." will start the sentence. :lol:

    Fisher coaching skills will be reason Rams this game. Riveria is horrible.

    And yet we passed and ran on them with ease.

    By the way, what you said is absolutely false.

    Neither are you. Your team has a habit of blowing close games. Ask EJ Manuel and Russell Wilson.

    Doesn't "assure" anything.

    Well at least you backed that up...


    Houston is 25th against the run, why would teams try to pass on them when it's obvious you don't need to?

    They were rated much higher before the niner game

    by the way - as much as you like to talk about your line, keep in mind we did shut down the best defensive player in the game: JJ Watt...

    They wouldn't. But that was also largely because they were one of the NFL's best against the pass through the first few weeks.

    If your premise were true, logic would hold that while they'd be good in YPG...they'd be poor in all measures of efficiency since their pass defense isn't actually good...teams just choose not to pass. Unfortunately, it's not true. They were among the league's best in all efficiency related passing numbers except passer rating...which was right around league average. They were also #1 in the NFL in Sack%.

    So your premise does not hold up under scrutiny.

    They were much higher rated before the NFC West literally ran all over them

    So the Panthers beating the Giants by 38 & the Vikings by 25 were hollow victories, while finishing +14 on the Jags and +25 on the imploding Texans are quality wins. Guess I'm not in Charlotte anymore.....

    Seriously, this game is a coin flip. I think it will come down to Panthers offense vs Rams defense. If the Panthers can get into rhythm, protect Cam, and run the ball effectively early in the game, we are going to win.

    If the Panthers aren't aggressive, drop balls, 3 and outs, give up multiple sacks, we deserve to lose.

    This is an important game for both teams. Neither team is out of the playoff race yet but a loss here could be a deathblow, especially in your division.

    Interesting. So if the Panthers execute a simple game plan, they'll win. But if the Rams are the benefactors of crappy execution by the Panthers, then we win? In other words, there's no way for the Rams to win unless the Panthers play poorly? Seems legit. I guess using that logic, the only way the Panthers can win is if the Rams aren't aggressive, drop balls, 3 and outs, and give up multiple sacks.
