There are many schools of thought, in my day a running threat QB was best defended with containment and an understanding not to overpursue. I was a 3-4 OLB, and taught to line up a few yards outside the TE or tackle, rush straight up field, then make a 90 degree cut in toward the QB to ensure he didn't get outside. This was our standard containment rush. We have seen In our past the spy method: Brooks and Vick come to mind. Staying 5 yards behind the line and tracking every movement, but applying 0 pressure. Now it has been brought up a few times applying direct pressure via a blitz, David, or maybe safety might the solution in the new defense.

If we can generate a pass rush with the front four, I'm predicting seeing David in more of a spy role rather than attacking. But if the DLine plays like they did last year we will be manufacturing pressure and David, Barron, and Barber will have to set up camp in the backfield.

Run the ball every play for 3.34 yards per rush so each drive takes 18 minutes and Newton is on the bench.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Can I get a cloud of dust with that?

Exactly! One of the best ways to beat him is to keep him off the field.

There is a lot of film on him now. So I might suggest that he will be played differently this year.

I don't think we will see the same success he had last year.

4 yards and a cloud of dust theory ended about a decade ago. It just flat out doesn't work any more. All your doing in shortening the game for both sides and the better offensive team will win at the end more often then not.

Peyton Manning's colts had the fewest offensive possessions of any team during his run in the 2000's because other teams used this philosophy against them. Peyton Manning's colts had the best winning percentage during that same time period.

The way to beat Cam Newton is to put pressure on him, hit, him tackle him when you get to him. This will lead to poor decision making and hopefully turn overs.

Part II is to score a freaking touch down or two early in the game as to not fall behind. Outside of giving up lots of early touchdowns last year, our biggest problem was never scoring early touchdown for ourselves.

You have to score and score early especially against offensive Freaks.

Lavonte David or Mark Barron should be QB Spy every play. David will wrap him up and limit his ground game. Barron will knock the sh!t out of him.

Newton has close to 40 lbs on Barron. I'm not sure how much excrement would be removed from him on such a hit. He'd probably just get right up.
