well, I'm mainly interested in seeing how we do against Chris Johnson. The pass rush has been much better than even I expected, but we really haven't been tested against the run so far this pre-season. Tennessee will be our first MAJOR test.

Also I'm still very concerned about who, if anyone, can step up and be the #2 receiver. I was hoping either Jarrett or LaFell could be that guy, but neither have been extremely impressive. Though Jarrett hasn't been as bad as probably some expected that he would be.

We need to stop CJ and get someone not named Deangelo Williams on the stat sheet on offense.

I'm talking about the first half btw.

Repeat after me:

It is only the preseason and it doesn't count.

A half a game of football doesn't tell you much.............

I'm not saying that what we see tomorrow will be exactly how our team looks all of next season, but it's not completely useless either.

I'm not looking forward to all the "OUR DEFENSE IS GONNA BE AWFUL!" posts when Tennessee inevitably gains 100+ yards against us in the first half

i agree, too many people are discrediting the pre-season entirely. I've been looking at some figures pretty hard and as a general trend, the teams that are doing well in the pre-season go on to succeed in the regular season.

Preseason or not, I will drink to this thread...often times a great defense can be just what the doctor ordered for a struggling offense. Turnovers created, short-field opportunities, all good stuff.

The defense is actually the one thing I am excited about watching tomorrow night. Hopefully Gamble and Marshall will be back in the line up.

Well I kinda messed up the analogy, but you get what I mean. :D

i think they are doing better then you think, considering we don't blitz in the preseason and we are still getting these sacks and run stops, but other teams are blitzing with regularity to get their pressure.

if an offense can stop our base packages what chance do they stand against some gameplannin!

When defending the offensive performance, some have said that we have been facing some of the best defenses, and that is true. But its also true that we haven't been facing the better offenses in the league. Don't get me wrong, I think the defensive performance has been great, but I prefer to see some regular season games before passing judgement.

But if you are going to compliment Meeks, I think Hurney and Fox deserve some credit as well. IMO, we have drafted quite a bit of talent on the defensive side of the ball, and for the most part, its worked out. Beason, Conner, Gamble, Marshall, Munnerlyn, Brown, Johnson, Martin, Godfrey, Anderson etc... all were panther draft picks. Very few free agents on our defense.

I HATED that we made him DC.

Because I'm a dipshit, apparently. Guy has been awesome.

I wasn't to thrilled, either. I thought it was an empty move to secure a Super Bowl winning Defensive Coordinator when the defense he commanded seemed a bit average, overall. Now it seems as though his overall philosophy is worth building upon, and he seems to be connecting with the players. The defensive draft picks seem to fit right into his system. That's why I wonder how the Panther's could afford to let this guy go when Fox is widely regarded as being "gone" when the season ends. Is it true that no assistants are under contract after the 2010 season?
