Who's Ready To See Some Of This?

The Panthers pass rush was not a weakness last season. They were #2 in the NFL with one of the best sack percentages. I believe getting rid of Ealy and Soliai and replacing them with Peppers and Love will be an improvement against the run. Now, the only weakness in the run game on the DL is Butler. That will make for an easier time on the LBs. The combination of Soliai, Butler,and Ealy all on the line at the same time was an invitation for an easy drive by the opposing offense. I am glad that garbage is gone.

The issue still remains that opponents have an easy out to the sidelines against the CBs in the running game, screen game, and passing game. They MUST stop opponents from converting 1st downs by stopping the runner for a short gain or forcing a turnover. The Panthers could have the best front 7 in the NFL with 2 all pro safeties. None of that matters if the CBs can not hold down the flats and stop 1st down conversions on 2nd and 3rd down.

When the Panthers outside CBs can make teams pay for playing outside the numbers like Tillman and Norman did in 2015, or Munnerlyn and White did in 2013 we will see a dominant team. Until then, we will see a team that allows opponents to stay in the game going into the 4th quarter with a tendency to lose leads late in games.

THIS JUST IN:  Panthers bring back Brad Hoover on a Vet minimum contract.  Pictured here after an unsuccessful comeback bid with Houston.

Love it, we need a good fb now that Tolbert is gone. Sign him up, and if Johnson can't go with his back then we are good

Jarred Allen and Julius Peppers have nothing in common.  Then, now, ever.

Julius will get at least 8 sacks this year, book it.  How many did JA get with us?

I don't regret us having Allen in 15 but what did he really do?

 

3rd on the d line in tackles despite playing his first game as  team member in week 7.

We are a lot older on defense now. Atlanta is young as hell on D with a lot of good players and team speed. Dave still has work to do.

If he drafts one young DE,  one young S. With speed. We'll be as good if not better. The interior line is young. The LBs are young, except for Thomas Davis. The secondary is young except for Adams. Add young guys with speed at the positions of age and we'll have a young hungry defense.

Those fan bases have every right to believe in their teams. They have solid teams believe it or not. Julius Peppers isn't what he used to be and isn't going to send our defense to a whole new level. Sorry to tell you that. 

Our defense is the best in the South and will be Top 5. They do have something to worry about. Everytime Gettleman goes out there and puts some good vets on defense to go with the young guys it works. Just imagine how Luke is going to be behind this dline. Ur crazy if u don't think they have something to worry about!!!!

I just can't let myself get hyped. I have to see it to believe it. Our history hasn't given me any reason to do otherwise.

Well if ur going off history Panthers will finish with a great record and make the playoffs. They have never had back to back winning seasons so that means we should go at least 12-4. I know ur going to say we had three straight titles. But look we have never had back to back above .500 seasons. So this year should be great!!!

Pep is not the Pep that left years ago ... He's more like the Jared Allen we got two years ago ... Great but far from his prime ... We have no room to gloat ...
If we lose J. Stew next year our defense will be on the field 24/7 ... and its hard to be great when your on the field more than a Chip Kelly's defense .. 

He is better than Jared Allen. He didn't even hardly do anything.

And so, the "realistic" fans (who are obviously ignorant of the root of the word "fan") chime in immediately.

Jeebus kristo on a pogo stick, have any of you guys ever had a passing thought about having fun?

The way some people view free agency is absurd.  Want us to sign every big name free agent but then when we sign a free agent say "the fact they were let go says everything". The logic doesn't hold up.  So all free agents suck?
