With all the hoopla surrounding the 5 yard rule change I found myself wondering how this will affect our defense. The Panthers as a whole have been penalized 18 times through 3 preseason games which is 8th fewest in the NFL. With penalties as a whole being up 44% around the NFL this bodes well for us. I feel the rule change effects teams that play man to man and press coverage more than primarily zone base schemes.

With our lack of all stars in the secondary, and being forced to play primarily zone last year and this year, keeping things underneath in front of us, we may benefit more than other teams who will be forced to tweak their schemes and coverages to account for increased penalties in the secondary.

I think it hurts us most with Luke and TD being one on one with TEs, but I don't see this affecting our pass coverage as a whole, that and the fact that I've seen TD simply lay out whoever he is supposed to cover as soon as they get off the line on more than one occasion this preseason!

Do any of you see something different that might cause a problem? Thoughts on how this affects our Defense?

Sorry, I'm sure it was a good write up but I got distracted watching TD lay guys out

Their starters have been flagged for less penalties than anyone else in preseason.

not as much as people would think. Obviously Cason had trouble, but the strength of our D is the front 7.

Our Best pass defense is our rush. We dont rely as heavily On DBs. Some teams rely %100 of the pass defense on their DBs.. put a lot of money in them.

We Will have good pass defense regardless of who is back there

I'm just saying, everyone else has been flagged for it. So, I guess that 31 other teams have shown their hand.

The Seahawks aren't gonna change.  They'll stick with their "they can't throw a flag on every play" philosophy.  Ultimately, when the regular season comes around, I think it'll largely be the same as it was before.  You're not gonna see many 20 penalty regular season games.  Fans will be nearly ready to revolt.

It might be considered blasphemy to some on here, but TBH that's why I respect the hell outta Seattle defensively. People hate on them and their attitude but I love that ish in football

There is one thing that Ron harps on and it's jamming and "rerouting". Most of the big plays we gave up last year were a result of WRs getting a free run. The pash rush needs time to arrive at the QB and the secondary makes that time by disrupting routes. 

 

I think we can adjust. It will probably hurt us but it will help our offense more than it hurts our defense in my mind. I think your still going to see star DBs get veteran calls from the refs. Sherman, Revis, etc.

I don't see how it would affect us ,normally we play with a 8-10 yard cusion anyway. I think the better question is who will it help the most. Brady and manning are gonna be more deadly with their dink and dunk offense
