Panthers' Defensive Line Rushing the QB Like Gangbusters

27 posts in this topic

Ranked third in adjusted sack rate

what does this mean? I guess it means we've got a good foundation to defend the pass when the next coaching staff and GM comes in this offseason and upgrades the back 4 iunno/

30th against the run....ouch. I thought our pass rush has been good this year. There have been alot of plays where we've gotten good pressure and passes are still easily completed. Some games I find myself sitting there thinking to myself "were just severely lacking talent in the back 4"

This can't be true. I have been told over and over on here that it doesn't matter who is in our defensive backfield as long as we have a good pass rush.

Scheme / coaching plays a significant role in pass coverage as well.

With that said we still need to upgrade our secondary

It means we are getting after the passer at the expense of giving up yards in the run

Decent DE's and OLBs... nothing in the middle. Wonder why teams just run up the gut?

Some huge runs stemming from missed tackles by some PAID linebackers. Well one in particular.

Pass rush is a bright spot...but LoL at anyone who thinks there will be a coaching change.

    • Im pretty sure he was white as a ghost in the comics bro
    • They're results, not skillsets.  Too many factors go into those results to get a conclusive evaluation.  For instance, how many times was Howard targeted downfield compared to Njoku?  How was he used in the redzone...as a receiver, blocker, the primary option, and so forth? And yards after contact is a very inconsistent measure since not all contact is the same, nor are the situations in which a player gets the ball.  Not to mention the role the offensive scheme and surrounding talent plays.  Heck, if all we had to do was look at the numbers, there wouldn't be any need for the combine, all-star games, pro days, private workouts, etc.  Teams could just pull out the stat sheet and make their selections.  No, teams look for the skillsets a player possesses to determine how they translate to the NFL.  Stats are only an indicator to use as part of the puzzle.  So, just looking at the actual skills, what does Njoku possess that is superior to Howard?  Has he shown better hands?  Has he shown he can run better routes?  Is he a better athlete?  Is he a better blocker? The answer is no to all of them.  Does that mean Njoku is a bad player?  Absolutely not.  But Howard clearly has the better tools, and is considered the better prospect by virtually every evaluator for a reason.
