Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers Open Thread

New, comments

You know, 2-0 sounds pretty great. Think we can make it happen?

The Falcons are staying put this weekend and taking on the stalwart Panthers, who are looking to bounce back while the dudes in the throwback uniforms look to keep rolling. Unfortunately, I won't get to catch any of it due to (what else?) work, so I expect you guys to run comments up well into the triple digits without me. Pour out a little Falcohol, too.

Personally, I think this is a very winnable game if the Falcons can muster the same defensive effort they did against the Dolphins. Here's to what should be a great game to watch, though like last week, I wouldn't complain if the Falcons just absolutely trash the Teal Cats. Enjoy!

Let's break it down to the atomic level.

Who? Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers, 1 p.m. EST

Where? Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia

Weather? Confucius say "man under dome roof not worry about rain."

Injuries? S William Moore is still questionable, but will likely get a few snaps this weekend. It'll be nice to see how helpful he can be against a quality running game. K Jason Elam and DT Peria Jerry are probable, but I fully expect them both to start and be effective, particularly because Elam has something to prove after a subpar performance Week 1.

The Panthers have listed S Chris Harris as doubtful and DT Nick Hayden as questionable. A few other players are probable, but the biggest effect on us would be if second-year T Jeff Otah or RB Jonathan Stewart were at all limited.

Odds? Atlanta over Carolina 6.0, O/U 44.0

Foe? Your friends and mine over at Cat Scratch Reader. You know the drill by now: Stop over and comment, but be polite. And comment more here. Don't embarrass me in front of the Panthers fans.

GO FALCONS! Let's reduce these cats to kittens!
