A little praise for part of this team

Good post.

One point...anyone saying we need to re-negotiate Hardy's pay probably doesn't realize he only makes $540,000 a year. Yeah, I'd say he is earning his money.

Very informative, thanks for posting this. I for one did not properly evaluate their production. I'll look at the film and evaluate better going forward - it's a process.

I like what I see our of the DE spot. I like what I see from the defense as a whole. The secondary could use some more work, but the DL and LB's have played very well this season.

Our DE's are playing lights out no doubt about it. Seeing how much of a different a good DT makes with Dwan I cant imagine how good our D as a whole would be with another good DT on the roster. We are not more than one or two players away from having a top 10 D.

Great post. Gotta say that some GM did a good job drafting Alexander.

I was surprised to see that Dwan has the same pass rush productivity as Ndamukong Suh, rated as generating the 11th highest pressure amongst DTs in either 3-4 or 4-3 fronts that have played 50% of their teams snaps.

He is no Geno Atkins or Kyle Williams, but he is twice as productive as the guys we have had the last two years. PFF credit him with 5 sacks, 3 hits and 4 hurries.

Having two decent DT's makes the pass rush look a whole lot better...

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
