Saints or Panthers.

Give me Cam in a revenge game.

I don't really care which team we play, pros and cons to each. Saints have more balanced offense,Panthers I think have a little better defense.Saints went 4-4 on the road this season,Panthers 5-3.

What areas are the Panthers better than the Saints? I can't think of any. Maybe safety?

Their ceiling is higher, and their floor is lower than the Saints. If they won't call holding on Matt Kalil when Cam runs, they'll be tough to beat.

Panthers have better pass rush and more sacks, Saints have the better, more balanced offense.

They have a good defense though.

This guy. :thumbsup:

He's always been pretty bad, but 6/15 for 33 yards... That really stinks.
