Panther Insider Notebook

"I think that last week Steve and I both played a good game and hopeful we can take the success that we had last week over to this weeks game," said Muhammad.

- The Panthers will use blitzes to pressure quarterback Marc Bulger and will try to disrupt the timing of the St. Louis Rams offense.

"We always say the best defense in the world is a pass rush. It is something that we have isolated on all week," said Head Coach John Fox.

-Watch for the Panthers to use 3 and 4 wide receiver at once because they feel that they will need to score with the Rams if they have a chance to beat them.

"We are going to need to score. Hopefully, we can contain them to some degree and then also get our share. I think if we play like we are capable of, we will be able to do that," said Fox.

-WR Muhsin Muhammad and WR Steve Smith feel like they can use their skills to their advantage in this week's game against the Rams, and think they should be as successful throwing the football this week as they where against the Dallas Cowboys.

"I think that last week Steve and I both played a good game and hopeful we can take the success that we had last week over to this weeks game," said Muhammad.

-DE Mike Rucker feels better this week going into the Rams game then he did last week at this time but doesn't feel like he is 100% back from his knee injury.

"This past game was a big confidence builder for me, the New York game was just to see if I could even play," said Rucker. "Against Dallas, I was still a little nervous opening my knee up. But when I did, it got hit and banged and it came back. So I really gained a lot of confidence to know that I could open it up."

-LB Dan Morgan feels the best he has felt in week and thinks that he is ready to get back to his old form.

"I feel really good right now and I should be back to where I was before my injuries and I'm going to have to be at my best since we are facing a great back in Marshall Faulk who is capable of going the distance every time he touches the ball," said Morgan.
