Panthers coach Ron Rivera wants his players to get away

from football Pittsburgh Steelers Hats , just for a little while.A day after a humiliating 52-21 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Carolina's eighth-year coach said it may just be what the Panthers need."Sometimes the best medicine is to forget about it and then come back ready to roll," Rivera said Friday, adding that they should focus on something other than football.That advice doesn't apply to Rivera and his coaching staff.Rivera said coaches will spend the next few days pouring over game film, looking for solutions and making adjustments, particularly on the offensive and defensive lines where the Panthers were overwhelmed by the Steelers in the road loss. The coach wouldn't say if he's considering any changes to the starting lineup.Quarterback Cam Newton was sacked five times and threw a crucial pick-six out of desperation to avoid taking a safety in the end zone, while the defense never was able to stop Ben Roethlisberger, who turned in a perfect QB rating (158.3) after throwing for 328 yards and five touchdowns. The 52 points allowed tied the most in franchise history.The Panthers (6-3) are still in good shape in the NFC playoff picture Pittsburgh Steelers Hoodie , but Rivera expressed concern knowing the NFL is a copycat league and upcoming opponents will look to simulate what the Steelers did against them."It is a beg, borrow and steal league," Rivera said. "Guys are going to look at this tape and see what (the Steelers) did and have answers. We as coaches, as I said, are not done evaluating tape and going through it and trying to correct things."Pittsburgh's defense brought more pass rushers than the Panthers were able to block, often resulting in 5-foot-11, 210-pound running back Christian McCaffrey desperately trying to pick up linemen who outweighed him by almost 100 pounds. That didn't go well.Rivera said the Steelers defense threw some new looks at Carolina's revamped offensive line and the guys up front didn't recognize or adjust to them."Sometimes you see things for the first time, things that they do a little differently Customized Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys , with a little twist to them, it makes things difficult," Rivera said. "We have to be able to handle those things. We have to stick to our rules, our base fundamentals."Meanwhile, Carolina's defense failed to generate much of any pressure on Roethlisberger. There were times he danced around in the pocket untouched for nearly 10 seconds.Rivera said that has to change.He plans to continue to rotate defensive linemen in and out of the lineup "until we find something that clicks on the pass rush side."Carolina's stadium was noticeably quiet and somber on a dark, gray afternoon.After what he called a "very humbling experience to be beat the way we were," Rivera still gave players four days off 鈥?as previously planned before the game 鈥?beginning Friday. They'll return to practice Tuesday to begin preparations for the Nov. 18 game at Detroit.For some, that wasn't by choice.Tight end Greg Olsen said after the game Thursday night that he wishes the Panthers had a four-day week this week and he could get back on the field to wash this loss out of their mouths instead of waiting 10 days for the next game."We just got thoroughly beaten in a game that we were looking forward to , a game that we thought we could really measure ourselves against one of the better teams in the league," Olsen said. "We got that answer. We got a lot of work to do."NOTES: Rivera said he plans to ask the league for a clarification on why safety Eric Reid was ejected Thursday night after hitting a sliding Roethlisberger on a downfield scramble. Rivera said he agreed Reid should have been penalized, but felt he shouldn't have been kicked out of the game.Steelers open as 4-point favorites over the Falcons in Week 5 The Pittsburgh Steelers have opened as 4-point favorites for their game against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5, a line that really only makes sense when you understand it was set long before the Steelers dropped their second game of the season on Sunday night. Given the way the contest against the Baltimore Ravens ultimately unfolded, it seems highly likely that this spread will shorten as the week goes on. That being said, taking into account the Falcons own disappointing 1-3 start to the year after losing in the dying seconds to the Cincinnati Bengals earlier in the day, it might be hard for backers to see enough value in either team to make the line move that much either way. As an NFC opponent, the Steelers only face Atlanta once every four years Pittsburgh Steelers Womens T-Shirt , but they have absolutely dominated the Falcons on the rare occasions they do meet. Owning a 13-2-1 record against Atlanta dating back to 1966, Pittsburgh have won their last two in a row against the Falcons, but have seen three of their last four against them go to overtime. Before registering a tie against the Cleveland Browns in Week 1, Atlanta was the last team the Steelers had tied with back in 2002.Pittsburgh failed to cover the spread once again in Week 4 and are now 1-3 ATS so far this season. With the final total against the Baltimore Ravens ending up at 40, the Steelers are also 1-3 versus the over this season having gone under for the first time this year on Sunday. An opening totals position on 56 in Week 5 may seem high at first glance, but anyone who has watched Pittsburgh play this season knows it really isn't considering the way the Steelers defense has been playing.
