15 year NFL vet and 2 time Pro Bowler Takeo Spikes stopped by the show to discuss the Panthers, Cam Newton, the Falcons, Luke Kuechly and more.
Takeo on Falcons struggles: You always have a chance when you have a guy like Matt Ryan at QB. If order for them to get going they must be able to run the ball. What is the return on that investment? People of Atlanta are waiting on that. He can still play but he needs to show it. Ryan has struggled with routine throws and that shows me the pressure is getting to him
Takeo on Cam: Panthers fan, I have been through a ton of QBs. Trust me. Don’t even think about bailing on this guy. It’s very hard to find even a decent QB in this league. Cam has gotten better over the last two weeks. When you win you get confidence but you get confidence from others when you play mistake free football like he did Sunday against Minnesota
Takeo on targeting/safety: Too many ways of tackling are being taken away. I was on the competition committee and what drives me crazy is you put these decisions in the hands of refs and guys that didn’t play the game. They need to find a common ground on launch points.
