Weve got to push the pocket and force him to move off his spot. We cant allow him to step up because when he steps up, thats when he spins out and is the most dangerous.Wilson has thrown for 1,192 yardswith six touchdowns and Denzelle Good Jersey three interceptionsand has added 198 yards on the ground. Many of those rushing yards are from scrambling because of Seattles porous offensive line that has allowed a league-high 22 sacks.The 4-0 Panthers, who have the NFL's 10th-ranked defense,hope to keep him in the pocket to add to that sack total.Some teams that play him dont stay DeAngelo Hall Jersey disciplined, Ealy said. Hes a great quarterback, or we wouldnt be talking about it. But at the end of the day, its not really what he does; its what other people dont do.You cant make mistakes against him.

You do the little things right, it will take care of a lot of other stuff.While the 6-5, 245-pound Newton will never be mistaken for the 5-11, 206-pound Wilson, they do have their similarities.Ive played against both of them," said Carolina defensive end Jared Allen, acquired in a trade with the Bears last month. Theyre both equally talented. Theyre both equally on top of their game. Each po se Jonathan Ogden Jersey ses minor different skill sets, but theyre both phenomenal.The Panthers will get linebackerLuke Kuechly back after mi sing the last three games because of a concu sion. He suffered the injury during the season-opening win over the Jaguars. GettingKuechly, the 2013 DPOY, back will help against a Seahawks offense that has to establish a traditional rushing attack, which maybe bolstered by Lynch's return from a calf injury.Carolina rookie linebacker Shaq Thompson knows the Seahawks well after playing at Washington. He knows if SeattlegetsLynch and backup Thomas Rawls going, it will make it more difficult to contain the mobile Wilson. Thompson and defensive tackle Kawann Short said Wilson is one of the more effective quarterbacks out of the pocket.They rely on one word to stop Alshon Jeffery Jersey the quick-footed Wilson: discipline.You seal him in. You cant let him step up and take off, Short told Omnisport. Weve got to stay disciplined, working the pa s rush, avoid any roughing pa ser calls and eliminate any other penalties, and hopefully we come out with this win.
