Chris Harris trade a year later

I know a bunch of people (including myself), were up in arms when the Panthers traded Harris to the Bears. I looked up the stats this morning from 2010 and figured I would share:

Chris Harris - age 28, 7 yrs. in NFL

2010 - 70 tackles, 5 interceptions

Charles Godfrey - age 25, 4 yrs. in NFL

2010 - 84 tackles, 5 interceptions

Sherrod Martin - age 26, 3 yrs. in NFL

2010 - 85 tackles, 1 int.

On paper it appears that we got more production, for less money, and younger legs. Just thought it was interesting.

I also found it interesting. All the while people were whining when we started the youth movement i was applauding. When we lost Pep i hoped that CJ and or Brown would step it up. Our young guys have gained valuable experience and some have shined with more playing time. Pickles was the turd in the punch. But then again what did we expect with lame duck coaching, oline shake up, and a rookie QB.

"A bigger turd will leave a bigger mark"- Neitzchke or Pat Sajak, I get them confused.

I think people were whining because we saw a 2-14 team, while the office didn't. Mixed with a complete refusal to sign any worth FA's or experience on the field. Going young was a good idea, but don't be naive, going young was a blanket term for last year. There were other motives.

I am not defending the front office, but I thought this was interesting. I bet if you pull Kometeau's numbers you will find similar results. Ultimately, the collapse of this team last year was attributed to letting Jake go and miscalculating Moore's talent. I thought it was time for Jake to go as well, but I don't think there is any doubt we would have been a lot better team last year with him. I guess we all got what we wished for.

While we are on the subject -

Julius Peppers - 2010 54 tackles, 8 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 2 int

AGE - 31

Charles Johnson - 2010 62 tackles, 11.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 0 int

AGE - 24

*CJ doesn't cost $17 million a year and doesn't take plays off*

defenses that get off the field tend to have less "production"

Nobody thought the offense would be the main reason for 2-14 though. Moose was about the only one of those veterans who could have made a slight difference.

touche but the players we let go didn't cause the collapse - we got similar production on defense with younger players that can only improve.

Moore was not the reason that the team sucked last year and Jake certainly wouldn't have helped.

Defenses that have offenses that are mostly three and out also have more "production".

^^^^This^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Fresher legs leads to more production throughout a game. Especially for stats like sacks. If a defense is holding a team to multiple 3 and outs it usually translates into more passing downs in the course of a game. Whereas a team thats offense is on the field all day tends to run much more later in the game.
