Dwan Edwards

Since people are like making a thread for every player after a 2nd win of the season, I should join in also. Just wanna give a big SHOUT OUT to my man, Dwan. When was the last time a Panthers DT, and I know a "DT" had an amazing "6 sacks" (and still counting) in a season? The last DT to came close to 6 was Jenkins in 03' with 5, and 02' with 7. Dwan have been wonderfully great given us the pass rush from the inside that we lacked for years.

Dwan was a great pickup and he's really helped our DE's flourish. Having that threat inside to move the pocket and keep QB's from just stepping up has made a world of difference for our defense. We've been seeing a lot of QB's forced to move laterally and into Hardy/Johnson/Alexander whereas last year they would just move vertically and get the pass off.

Having the DT rotation playing pretty good, makes it easier for Hardy/CJ/Alexander....

Still think we should draft a top rated DT in the draft. Even if the DT takes a year or 2 to develop...

I don't know if anyone's noticed but Fua isn't on roller skates anymore and Nate Chandler even played well

Dwan Edwards is a diamond in the rough. Didn't we pick him up off a Bills team that was supposed to have an incredible defense with tons of depth? Bet they'd like to have the six sacks Dwan has given us about now.

I feel like every time he gets a sack at home there should be a scoreboard graphic of him as a half cyborg/ half human with a huge cybertronic sound effect that just says "DWAAAAAAAAN" btw I just smoked a nice fat blunt

Agree. I really think if Star or Hankins is there that we should still take one of them. If Dwan, CJ and Hardy is having this much success playin along Ron, imagine putting them along Star, someone who will constantly forces double team on him leaving a lot of one on one matchup for the three of them.

Yea, bet they misses him also. That Bills defense is terrible but probably has to do more with their LBs.

I agree, but the development of Chandler, Fua, and Neblett is key . I am really impressed with Chandler, who is very raw. Neblett is a great athlete, but in a contract year, so he needs to impress in the last 8 games. Fua--sometimes, as you say, it takes a year or two.

Ron and Dwan are aging. May get another year or two out of them.

THis year's draft is solid at the top with DTs.
