Panthers find bright spots in defensive ends

47 posts in this topic

Mathis as a LB usually lines up and plays as a stand-up DE on run downs when Freeney is on the sidelines. Freeney rarely plays on run downs.

Not saying Davis as the DE, I'm saying Brown with Davis behind him as the OLB, much in the same fashion as Mathis playing behind Freeney when Freeney is on the field.

Really? I am sure that happens on occasion, but everything I have seen list Mathis as playing the predominant amount of his snaps at LE?

Freeney and Mathis have played on more rushing plays than anyone else on the Colts DLine...

I confess though that I do not know the Colts incredibly well.

You're right. I'm thinking of Gary Brackett, not Mathis. I haven't seen much of the Colts this season, but in past years Freeney was just plain bad playing the run.

Freeney has improved his run defense significantly in the past 2 years. He still doesn't make a ton of tackles though.

Fox should ask Everette Brown: "What have you done for me lately?"

He's invisible every game. I almost forgot we drafted him.

Works his ass off. Can't quite get there.
He's still playing his part of the line. It helps the other guys. And he'll continue to get better.

Sacks will come.
