Early Positions of Concern: Or How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love The Draft

16 posts in this topic

Everybody keeps pointing out the D-line as a big weakness all of a sudden, but we haven't had a superstar DT since Jenkins left anyway, so this year is really no different than last year or the year before, as far as talented DT's go. Peppers was the only big loss on that whole unit and most Panthers fans were never happy with his effort anyway.

I just don't see Louis Leonard and Tank Tyler being a big let down from Kemo and Damione Lewis. Hell, Kemo was undrafted and had only started for one season before he came here and Damione Lewis was considered a 1st round bust who was a back up in the Rams porous run defense. If we're gonna worry about our DT's, we should be worrying about who comes in for Tyler and Leonard when they need a breather. If there's a big problem, it's depth.

All the draft experts would disagree. apparently TE was a big need for us.

Doesn't Munnerlyn play as the #2 when he is on the field? I thought that had been pointed out many times.

Also, "roll player"? Is it not: role player?

Calling someone a nickle doesn't necessarily refer to if the player covers the slot or outside receiver. It just means the CB comes in only on nickle or other formations with 3 + DB's.

And yes, but I don't care enough to correct.

The question is do more or less than 5% of huddlers get the Dr. Strangelove reference.
It'll be Slim Pickens.

Nope. Or do you mean just the title itself?

I understand the Nickle term, its just that a lot of people around here read "Nickle CB" and think he only covers the slot receiver, whereas I've read (as I don't really play attention to individual players when watching) that he mostly plays on the outside. He's like the #2B.

I was just curious as I see "roll player" often on the boards and was wondering if I was missing something. I wasn't trying to be a douche.
