Congrats on beating those dirty pirates! I was rooting for you guys all the way (of course). PP21's interceptions were a thing of beauty and that stout D-Line of yours put the nail in the coffin for Doug Martin and that offense. Consider me a Honey Badger fan too. Peterson is one of my favorite DBs in the NFL but after all the crap Mathieu took in the pre-draft and post-combine discussions I'm beyond glad to see him finding success. At any rate, down to business. I am aware that Daryl Washington (possibly the top blitzing Mike Linebacker in the league) is due to return for our match-up next week and that grinds my gears. I was truly hoping to avoid him considering our squad isn't great at picking up the blitz, and he'll make your run defense significantly stronger. That's bad news for our team since we rely on the run to get our offense going. We're expecting Barner AKA F-Zero to finally make his professional debut but we're not expecting much from him this early, especially after coming off a toe issue. Stewart is our best back but he's currently on the PUP list because of off-season surgery on his ankles. Williams will start for us and while he is ranked 4th overall in yards, he's not the back we want for a physical defense like yours. We're likely going to give Tolbert more snaps to compensate.
With that sneak peek to our running assault, I am here to happily answer any other questions you Arizona Cardinal fans have about the Carolina Panthers. Good luck on Sunday!
