    We haven't run the ball in over a month. Amazing that teams are actually daring Brees to beat us.

    Wish I was confident that it will work again next week, but I just don't see how we will match up favorably against Minny in any phase of the game.

    If it comes down to a shootout I'll take Drew Brees over Case Keenum anyday.

    Anyone see this video? I still can't believe I was pissed that we took this guy rather than a pass rusher in the 1st round!

    Me too. Especially when I found out about his injury history and then in training camp he spent more time in the doctor's office than on the practice field. Turns out we already had a great pass rusher in Cam Jordan.

    Kind of sucks that we won the division and had a better record than Atlanta but yet they get the more favorable matchup in the second round.

    NFL questioning the Panthers' handling of Newton's injury; say he should've been in concussion protocol. Seemed pretty obvious it was an eye injury and not a brain-rattle.

    That's why he fell down before making it to the sidelines.

    No way was he looked in the eye... Dude that tackled him had his arms around cam and cam had the eye protection on his helmet... Also, protocol says if he drops to the field before reaching the sidelines after taking a blow to the head, they have to take him to the locker room...
