smith lowered his head, once he does that all bets are off. if anything it should have been a penalty since smith was clearly out of bounds

I don't see anything wrong with it.

Just good tackling in my book. Looks like he was using more of his shoulder and the helmet just came along for the ride.

Good hit.

If the tables were reversed this forum would be covered in gifs of the hit and people trying to put our guy in the Hall of Fame.

I thought the same thing when I saw it. Good hit though. If Smith had been injured we'd probably be looking at it differently. Luckily he bounced right up and started talking poo.

Good hit, he was a runner and not defenseless. RBs take comparable ones all the time

I don't think Barron should have been penalized for it. Both players lowered thier heads and just happened to hit helmets.

It was definitely a scary collision though that could have ended badly.

It was but I didn't mind the no call. I mean Smith lowered his head too.

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
