You can say that the Panthers are a football team and not a foundation, and they have a compelling reason to retain Davis.

I could say it, but I’d rather show it to you.

Saturday night, a frenzied blitz, and here comes Davis sprinting wide around a blocker and touching the quarterback. Players aren’t wearing pads so a touch is a sack. The quarterback cheats and completes a short pass. Davis takes off after the receiver.

And makes “the tackle seven or eight yards downfield,” says Beason. “Any time you see freakish plays like that you know he’s back to his normal self. He’s going to help us out. He’s a freakish athlete. I’ve never seen any linebacker that athletic, that fast, still.”

Everytime I see him cut, tackle, high five, jump or sprint I freak out.

Good for Davis and good for the Panthers. I don't know how long he can play but I am going to root for him all the way. If you are a Panther fan why wouldn't you??

He is one of my mancrushes, behind Cammy Cam obviously.

Yes. One knee he's tore twice.

When you come back from an injury like this, it's not uncommon for this to happen because the healthy tendon/ligament/muscle/joint assumes more pressure due to the inadequate support from the other.

I know that poster who called my post "garbage" wants to get pie & rep off of me, but no player in the NFL has ever successfully returned from 3 devastating ACL injuries.

Like I said, Davis is one of my all time favorite Panthers, but I'll bet $100 PayPal right now he doesn't make it through the season. Any takers?

We wasted his talents shuffling him around early in his career. He's a beast and I hope and pray he is the comeback player of the year in the NFL.

T. Davis tore the ACL in his right knee three times.

Why would you bet against one of your supposedly favorite Panther players to sustain a career ending injury. Hard to be rooting for a player to do well and recover when you have 100 bucks riding on his getting hurt.

Makes no sense at all.
