Panthers have the best DE duo?

Recommended Posts

We had a good game in which our front four got good pressure, and people are claiming we have the best pass rushing DEs BWAHAHAHAHA! Before today, when was the last time Charles Johnson had a sack? Ah, I think it was when we played Atlanta, in front of his hometown fans.

Are you high? He had two sack/strip-fumbles last week. And the "best duo" question (notice the question mark?) is based on them leading the league in sacks. Stats don't tell everything, and I wouldn't go ahead and anoint them, but it's not baseless conjecture to discuss it.

Dwan will be 32 next season and Ron will be 34, we can't exactly keep counting on them to be our starters. We need to inject some kind of talent and since we're going to tight on cap space, we'll need to look through the draft for it.

We really do need some young stars up front, what we have now is a good short term plan for DT but I don't want another Kemo and Lewis situation where we rely on them for too long without looking at the long term solution.

Haven't shown the pass rushing consistency over the course of the season. I'd take the Giants' pass rush any day. Homers will be homers.

It'd be cool if Frank could bulk up some, and play DT as a starter after Ron's gone. Which won't be too long as he's getting up there in age. But so is Dwan, to my surprise, so I wouldn't be opposed to getting a nasty DT in the draft at all..

If Frank put on like, 30 more pounds..and could stay as about as athletic as he is now, he could be a game changing DT with his ability to knock the ball down at the line..

Add in a guy like Star Lotulelei this draft and we have Johnson, Alexander, Hardy, Star, and Dwan. Hardy being able to play some DT like he has been on 3rd downs lately as well...oh my.

Obviously the answer was no ( I figured most would catch that), Point is we have some good young DEs. And you're wrong about the pass rush, they've been consistent over the last several games.

Drafting DT's is risky. I'd rather sign a proven vet. We are a WR & DB from being a very, very good team.

Add a WR & FS in the first 2 next year, get Gamble/Beason/Kalil healthy, & have competent coaching & we can be as good as anybody.

Id rather have a WR, FS, and CB in the draft than a DT.

DT usually take time to develop. We can always pick up a solid DT in FA.

I am wanting Kennan Allen

Allen's stock will drop because of his injury.

Hunter will be a star though and I think Robert Woods is the next DeSean Jackson.

Sorry, but uuuhhh NO! Alexander IS, AND will BE a passrusher. Hardy is closer to being a DT and its pretty absurd to make him a full time DT. if your talking DT ONLY on passing downs both Hardy and Alexander have played the position. A full time move is just rahtarted!
