Kiffin is 72 years old.

I actually like the Jim Johnson zone blitz scheme we're running now. Granted it needs better players in a few spots.

Can't see this group do Tampa 2, Keuchly is a tackler, not a coverage guy

Well his son is a sniveling little bitch, so if he is anything like his offspring I don't want him.

Kiffin was a very good DC, but the article I read said he might not want to be a DC again, just a consultant or something like that. It's all speculation of course, but I wouldn't be opposed to him as our DC if it did work out that way.

i really dont see our LBs blitzing much, and we still play a lot of zone so it wouldnt be any different.

The scheme we run now is pretty much all zone with a little bit of man.

Can't see this group do Tampa 2, Keuchly is a tackler, not a coverage guy


i thought keek was supposed to be the best coverage LB to come out since urlacher.

Kuechly isn't a hitter......he is a everything else guy and that includes coverage. The plays are coming. There is a reason why when players have gotten picks that other Panthers have made reference to them looking like Luke. He makes them in practice.....just hasn't had any signature plays yet.

The ONLY problem I have is this. Monte's defense requires 2 pretty good safeties. We don't even have 1 (well, 1 that can play both the run and the pass effectively). Unless we're going to upgrade BIG time at safety, his defense most likely wouldn't work, unless we continue to sodomize opposing QBs with our front 4.


You're being too nice....our safties suck

You guys are giving it too much thought. 72 years old and could work here for a few years before he retires. Not to mention, one of the best DC in the league for the past 10 years is now 75 years old (Dick LeBeau).

Kiffin's Tampa 2 got exposed so badly on a Monday night in Charlotte a few years ago that he left the Bucs at the end of that season. He took it to the college level and guess what?

He implemented it at USC, which was supposed to be a national champion contender this year, and it was exposed again. Just like anything else in this league, give the other guy enough time and film and they'll figure it out.

No, thanks.

Yes, but we probably have to play a lot of zone to mask our flaws in the defensive secondary. We just don't have the overall talent yet to fully commit to the JJ43 defense, particulary @ OLB, SS and FS.

He was amazing at Tampa. He just resigned at USC. Since we are getting a new coaching staff. What do you guys think about him as DC?


what's wrong with the DC that we have?

A DC can only devise scheme's that his players can execute.

the smarter and better the players play........ the more stuff he can install.
