Panthers have the best DE duo?

I wonder if firstroundpick is pleased or pissed.

Meh...who cares. LOL!

We're going to have, like, 5 roughing the passer penalties next week. The Refs baby Peyton and his neck.

DT depth still needs to be addressed. If not in the draft a good mid aged vet. Once Dwan goes out pass rush dies and when Ron goes out Fua comes in and we get gashed.

WR upgrade is also needed but I'd rather get the Dline consistent and get a large WR in the second.

With Nibbles and Bits it's not quite as bad. He played the most snaps for him yet, since his return from suspension, today and played very well.

Maybe not, but suddenly what many considered a position of weakness looks like a strength. Add in young Frank Alexander and even Thomas Keiser in rotation. We look good there.

Fugging awesome stat. Never imagined that halfway through the season, we'd have the best DE tandem in the league, but would be only 2-6.

I still say we need to draft either DT or OT. Don't forget, Gross is getting up there in years, as well as our starting DTs, and although Bell is doing an outstanding job, not sure if he has the skillset to take over LT when Gross hangs em up.

Possibles for draft day: OT, DT, S in the first two rounds. I don't think we need a WR just yet, save that for next year's draft in the first, once we get things smoothed out about our coaching staff and GM.

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!

What's wrong with having a passrushing DT? Sounds pretty dope to me. Plus I love his length. He could bat so many balls down that are coming over the middle.

I watch a fairly decent amount of Cal football living in Northen Cali so I have to ask, am I the only one that isn't the least bit enamored with Keenan Allen? He's a good WR, but nothing I'd rely on to replace Steve Smith at any time in the near future.

Keenan Allen isn't a top prospect like AJ Green or a Julio Jones; though not many are. However, he would be an instant upgrade to the WR position and would start from day one and could likely replace 89 as the #1 after a year or so. Despite that, I think we have bigger needs than to address the wide receiver position early in the first round. I worry about selecting DT that early but it may happen if either Star or Hankins is available. If not, and if we happen to move on from Gamble for some draft picks, I could see us selecting Dee Milliner out of Bama'. Regardless of what happens we won't be able to fill our holes and needs with quality players with just the draft and need at least one impact FA to come to Carolina in the off-season.
