Interesting little piece I found on the ESPN NFC South blog with Pat Yasinkas. It's at the bottom of the piece mentioning that when the Falcons and Panthers met last, Cam Newton had some issues with the Falcons rush, completing only 37% of his passes against the blitz, though he was able to read other teams blitzes, but struggled against the Falcons. The Falcons need to establish some sort of a rush as well on Sunday to rattle him. He is still a rookie, prone to mistakes, and I see that happening on Sunday. There is another piece in the same article about how well the Falcons rebound after a loss during the Mike Smith era. Don't forget the rather porous Panthers defense, whom defending the run is horrendous. Turner, Snelling, and Quizz should have a field day, plus the fact that their secondary is depleted as well. Funny that no one else has really talked about that all week, just concern for Newton, and justifiably so, but he is NOT the whole team. The Falcons D will rise up, and do some serious damage on Sunday. The Falcons have some suprises up their collective sleeves for us this season, and they are NOT done at all. Please, no Mularkey moron mode anymore, I'm tired of him and the coaches holding this team back, let them loose, and stop farting around, that's one of the reasons we are in the position we are right now.
