Does that mean Atlanta and Carolina will be practicing together?

Kind of odd considering they're in the same division.

Tony Gonzalez would do it without thinking twice; he absolutely hates the falcon organization.

Well when one man is obviously superior to the 11 defenders on the other side of the field, boredom might be a natural reaction.

Just a question what are Julio's numbers against us?

Compared to Carolinas offense Atlanta looks like gsot

Wasn't it supposed to be compared to all teams it's the greatest show on turf? ?

How far has expectations drop now that you only compare your offense to 1 team instead of the rest of the league.

I know right. We're reduced to bragging about being better than Carolina. Fml

No shame in comparing your team to that of the division kings. The worst teams in a division often compare their teams to the best team in their division... to see where they stack up.

David Newton's(of espn) take on the topic.

The St. Louis Rams had one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history from 1999 to 2001. Wide receivers Isaac Bruce, Torry Holt, Az-Zahir Hakim and Ricky Proehl, along with the running back Marshall Faulk and triggerman Kurt Warner, were so dynamic that they became known as "The Greatest Show On Turf.''

Proehl, now the wide receivers coach of the Carolina Panthers, is planning a reunion.

Sort of.

Proehl, according to his Twitter account, wants to bring Holt, Bruce and Hakim to training camp in Spartanburg, S.C., to help develop his new receiving corps. Here's what he wrote:

Trying to get the greatest show on turf to training camp to work with our receivers. How awesome would that be . #88,#80,#81— Ricky Proehl (@RickyProehl)

"The Greatest Show on Turf'' was awesome, setting all kinds of league records with Mike Martz attack-oriented offense that scored 500-plus points in three consecutive seasons.

Proehl isn't trying to reincarnate that. The Panthers still plan to run a more conservative, ball-control offense.

But he wants to pull on the experience the Rams receivers had when they all came together in 1999 as he replaces the top four receivers from last season.

Perhaps he even sees the similarities the 1999 Rams receivers have with what the Panthers are building.

In Holt, St. Louis had a 22-year-old rookie that burst onto the scene with 53 catches for 788 yards and six touchdowns. That could be Kelvin Benjamin, the 28th pick of the recent NFL draft, for Carolina.

In Bruce, the Rams had a 26-year-old veteran that already had been selected to one Pro Bowl. The Panthers don't have a Pro Bowler, but they do have a couple of proven veterans in Jason Avant, 31, and Jerricho Cotchery, 31.

In Hakim, the Rams had a second-year player who had shown glimpses of potential but done little. That could be Tiquan Underwood, Brenton Bersin, Marvin McNutt or Tavarres King for the Panthers.

In Proehl, the Rams had a 31-year-old journeyman known for his precise route running and ability to make clutch catches. Avant and Cotchery probably would fall more into that category for Carolina.

The Rams went from 4-12 in 1998 to 13-3 and Super Bowl champions in 1999.

The latter is what Proehl ultimately would like to duplicate.

He hopes reuniting "The Greatest Show On Turf''' can help jumpstart that process.

If it happens, it happens, if not, it doesn't. They would be there mainly for inspirational purposes anyway.

Proehl is the only one I would want trying to train and teach our WRs. He is the one that gets the credit for SS89 turning around and making an impact at the WR position all those years ago. Before Proehl started mentoring SS89, 89 was nothing but a glorified kick returner.

Funny, because other than yards I'm pretty sure we had a better offense than Atlanta in pretty much every way last year. Everyone acts like those last few games of the season was indicative of our offense as a whole last year. We were actually pretty d*mn good and efficient throughout the whole year. Mainly due to Cam being a beast at converting those crucial 3rd and 4th downs.

Matter of fact, going by DVOA - which takes into account everything and has been the most accurate indicator of those advanced stats the past however long - actually has Carolina at the 10th best offense in the league last year (and that's even with those last couple of games of the season which really knocked our rankings down).

Notice Atlanta is 14th.

We were effecient as h3ll last year. We weren't as flashy as we were under Chud... but in most of the games, we dominated the clock with Shula's offense.
