Don't Believe the Hype

Jake Delhomme knows two things are true: (1) the Panthers will lose on opening day and (2) the Falcons will have the Panthers' number.

Given all the Panther pre-season hoopla, yesterday's performance was not the way they wanted to start: 0 touchdowns, -9 first down differential, -13 minutes time of possession differential, and the clincher, -187 rushing yards differential. The Dirty Birds absolutely worked the Cats. It was painful to watch...a re-run of the 2005 NFC Championship game, indeed.

The only good news from yesterday is that Tampa Bay looked even worse than Carolina.

Let's hope the Cats can stop their 2-game skid next week at Minnesota.
