You talkin about the quote in first game, last Sept?
Carolina is 1-5 AT HOME.... ONE AND FIVE................ Their defense is giving up 28 pts a game for last four games.... That was with a healthy D, they will not be 100% on D Sunday.....their offense is inconsistent and is struggling to put up points.... take away their win over powerhouse PHIL and they are averaging 18 pts a game.
Teams evolve as the season progresses... Falcons are improving every week. Carolina is NOT.... Panthers ONLY home win was against the Saints at the peak of their "train wreck" on Sept 16th.... Since then they have not beaten anyone in their own house; They are coming off a loss to KANSAS CITY... now suddenly they want to fertilize their turf with Ryans blood?
I hope they show Cam Newtons "Tim Tebow's crying imitation" to the team before the game.... Newtons after game press confences would depress the crap out of me if I were on that team....They need to worry about how not to lose another game and not how to get after Matt Ryan....
If you were an NFL player on a 11-1 team and someone threatened your QB; how would react to that? I think you'd play your behind off for him....
Revenge is one the worst and least successful motivators EVER.
BTW Matt said "get the fxxk off my field" after Falcons had a miracle last minute comeback to snatch victory from the Panthers. He said that he was only responding to nasty, but undisclosed, comments he got from Carolina players.
