    I haven't seen any attribution for the quote.

    Was it some dweeb on a fan message board?

    Anyway, LK is the real deal.   Whether he's assigned to Gronk or shuts him down is another matter.

    "I fully expect Kuechly to take Gronk away."

    LMAO

    Kuechly is a nice young LB in this league with star written all over him, but to pretend Kuechly has produced against someone like Gronk and a QB like Brady is a bit ridiculous.

    Out of curiosity, I looked up what Brees/Graham did in each contest last year vs Carolina.

    In NOs later in the year, Graham caught 9 balls for 115 yards and  TD with Carolina allowing 38 points.

    Earlier in Carolina, Saints put up 27 and Graham had 7 catches for 71 yards and a TD.  I fully realize this was last year, but Gronk is also superior to that of Jimmy Graham, mainly because he's a very good in-line blocker as much as the superior target and receiver.

    Happy reading/chuckling.

    and Kuechly is a rookie so your findings are meaningless. There are other good tight ends in the league if you need comparison. Just found this article ironically.

    They mention his coverage ability and how he shut down Vernon Davis. Be worried, Oh and Greg Olson is pretty good on the other side. He is one of the fastest Tight ends in the league. We will have problems with  him(noticed in another thread you discounted the TEs and Wrs) remember just being big is a problem with our safeties both being under 5'11 and our backers slow as molasses



    We will not have trouble with Greg Olsen.  lol

    He's a solid TE, but you act like he's a Pro Bowler. He's basically Heath Miller. This will be a Pittsburgh Steelers kind of gameplan.   Keep Cam bottled up, make him not want to throw, get him to quit on his progressions and keep a spy on him for the tackle.  Olsen will get some touches, but it won't be why we might struggle holding them down from scoring.

    Contain/take out the run

    Bottle up Newton on all pass rushing

    Mix man and zone to keep Newton guessing

    The fact we can play man so effectively, assuming Talib is ready to go after a month off, allows the effective man and zone switches which will confuse Newton.   BB is very good with these gameplans and the team is very good following them.

    See games against Ben, VIck, even vs SF last year after we got done coughing the ball up 4 times in a row in our zone. Kaeperenick could not run his Read Option. Tebow is another one BB stoned cold.

    Steve Smith is old and it might make sense to put Dennard on him with the heights being similar, and just have Talib completely wipe out LaFell, the latter an average WR and a bust.

    He's in his 4th season and Kenbrell Thompkins has better numbers as a rookie than LaFell.

    If you take a look at the defenses Carolina played well against, they kinda stink.

     




    Listen I wont be the drunk one on the game thread yelling and screaming like a maniac because I underated an opponent,. You can think what you want. I have confidence that we can every game but like the pats, I respect all opponents and point out how they can beat us. As usual you have your chest puffed out after a nice win vs the Steelers.

    Heath Miller!?!?  LMAO, its bad enough that THIS guy kills us every time we play. He was probably the slowest TE coming out the draft and a run blocker with good hands. Greg Olsen is a Pass catching Tight end that was the fastest coming out. You couldnt be more wrong with that comparison so go ahead and get drunk and make a fool of yourself on the game thread while you are outta town in tampa!  LOL

    Re: Early Rumblings in Carolina

    Wager for what? I never gave a prediction. I said I always believe the pats will win but I also respect every opponent because its the NFL. This aint about me wanting to bet against the team I root for. Thats silly. Its about YOU not knowing football and personell. Why are you bringing up what Lafell did as a rookie? Since Vareen didnt play as a rookie does it mean he is inferior to all the backs he is compared too?

    Lafell is not a BUST. He wasnt a 1st round pic and is a starter, so how is he a bust? He is playing on a team that has paid 2 , not 1 but 2 running backs to huge deals that BB wouldnt give to ONE guy so yea I would think the Wideouts numbers would be low when you have 2 dynamic backs and a running QB behind center. Context rusty! If Lafell is a bust than what is Tavon Wilson???  lol

    Just get drunk and enjoy the game. You arent exactly the one to be offering bets seeing as you never follow through cuz you are a coward, slimeball scum who has no leg to stand on. Do I want to bet??!!! LMAO!  You still havent left the board after Rkarp buried you

    Vernon Davis is Kuechly's size.  Good matchup for Kuechly.

    Could be. We know Gronk is a beast. I dont think LK can shut him down. Its LKs boys up front who can get after brady and make LKs job easier. LK does have 10 other guys on the field with him and its not out the realm for them to double gronk and make Brady go eslewhere. Brady has forced balls to Gronk this year. You do the math. Im always optimistic for a win, but cmon guys. Erase that Steelers image of us beating up on an old Troy and look at all the nice young talent on D with Charles Godfrey in the back end. This team traded Jon Beason because LK was tearing it up. Beason is an ALL PRO Backer. Thats saying something.

    Gronks Career Stats vs Ravens

    1st game - 1 catch for 24 yards

    2nd game - 5 catches for 87 yards

    3rd game - 2 catches for 21 yards

     

     

    Sounds like one good game out of 3. Im sure he had an impact in the run game...when we ran the ball.



    Well, he has SOME kind of effect.

    NE scores something like 8 ppg against the Ravens in two games w'out him, and 26 ppg with him. 

    They are 2-1 with him out there (the one loss being the 30-31 heartbreaker) and 0-2 w'out Gronk playing.

    Re: Early Rumblings in Carolina


    When did Davis go down w/a concussion?  Vernon Davis is a great tight end--no doubt---but he does not play the power game that Gronk does.  In no way is that an insult to Davis--he is awesome and I would love him on our team.  But he is more comparable to Hernandez than to Gronk.  There are not many LB's that can knock Gronk (a healthy Gronk) off his routes---nor are that many that can combat his size/wingspan.  I love Kuechly too---again I wish we had him--but I don't see him stopping Gronk--especially in the red zone.  And even if he gets that assignment----like a poster said before, that opens up the running game.  Vereen is back and so is the screen game which should combat an overaggressive DL.  Should be a great game---a statement game for both teams.  If we have no turnovers--I expect the Pats win by 7-10.  One to two turnovers and they have none---we lose.  One/two and they have one/two  Pats by 3-6.  The Panthers have not played an offense like ours---our defense has played against mobile QB's (Miami, Pitt, NYJ, Bills)--so, it will be interesting.  This will be a true test of our offense---I expect no huddle--a lot.  Short passes, play actions--and Dobson will get free at least once/twice.

    Re: Early Rumblings in Carolina

    If you read that Carolina fan's post (only joined that forum in August with 13 posts to date), probably a band-wagon fan who woke up to see the Panthers have been winning lately.  The replies put this OP in his place indicating the Pats aren't over-rated.  Yes, we have similar stuff going on here, but, then again, the Pats have a history of consistently winning and big games too.  Carolina could melt down Monday night for all we know.
