Why the Panthers WILL beat the Eagles

This game sets up perfectly for the Panthers heres why:

1 - The Eagles are 1 and 3 in the last 4 years on opening day.
2 - The Eagles starting five offensive linemen didn't take a single preseason snap together due to injuries across the line. Both tackles Jason Peters and Stacy Andrews are new and Winston Justice (only 1 career start) will be replacing Shawn Andrews (aka the Beast). Lick yer chops Pep, Brown and Brayton.
3 - The Eagles lost their MLB (Stewart Bradley) for the year and with the exit of Safety Dawkins to free agency they will be very thin up the middle, moreover they will lack the leadership on the field. Oh yeah a rookie 5th round pick who started camp as a cornerback will be holding down that starting safety position. Look for LOTS of Double Trouble up in there as well as a few dump passes to the TE's.
4 - With all the talk about Stew coming back, no one is talking about where Goodson will get his touches. Look for Smitty wide and Goodson in the slot.
5 - Brian Westbrook turned 30 earlier this month and 30 is the age a lot of backs fall off. To the end, he didnt play a single down in the pre-season dealing with knee problems.
6 - With Sean McDermott taking over for Jim Johnson I am pretty sure Fox and Davison would like to get up early and im guessing have a few wrinkles for the rookie coach.

Re: Why the Panthers WILL beat the Eagles

Beautifully put. It really makes me laugh how all the media "experts" predict Philly in a blowout. Their injury situation is way worse then ours.

Besides, correct me if I'm wrong, but this team went 9-6-1 last year. The only tie? Against the Bengals. Hope McNabb likes eating turf.

Re: Why the Panthers WILL beat the Eagles

This doesn't have to be close.  The Panthers have the potential to put some teams away.  My god, Steve Smith and Deangelo Williams on the field at the same time, with Moose, Stewart, Goodson as third options!

This one is Carolina's to lose.  AND WE AINT GONNA!!!!!

Yeah those are all great players but we still have Fox and Delhomme at the controls.  Until Fox and his blind loyality are gone we're doomed!
