Dwan Edwards

12 posts in this topic

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

Hurney picked him up. Give credit where it's due. R.I.P Hurn dog.

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.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
