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.

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

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.

Also, the only player that we let go that would have added wins was Delhomme.

Not because he is worth a damn, but if Jake would have been here then Fox probably wouldn't have totally poo the bed in the coaching department last season.

Yeah I said this last offseason (and I believe even in the 09 offseason when I said we should have save ourselves the money) and people thought I was crazy for saying Johnson was the more consistent and better all around DE. Peppers was way too hot and cold.

Johnson was a steal. Don Gregory is the sh$%. Look how much better our drafts have looked since he was signed in 06'.

Carolina's and Chicago's defenses were both on the field more than the offense.

TOP
Chicago - 29:31
Carolina - 27:24

Total Defensive Plays
Chicago - 1002
Carolina - 1060

These numbers aren't that different.
