If you asked the average football fan which defensive line has two of the top four 4-3 defensive ends in terms of pass rushing productivity, it might take them a while to come up with the correct answer. Even if you gave them that it was the Panthers it would probably take them even longer to come up with both players’ names. Charles Johnson and Greg Hardy rank second and fourth in pass rushing productivity despite little to none of the fanfare that surrounds the likes of Julius Peppers and Mario Williams. If you read PFF you already know how good Johnson is, but what Hardy is doing is starting to rival his line mate. On Sunday he rushed from an end position 19 times and a tackle position 19 times to total three sacks, four stops and a hurry. Hardy’s versatility and ability to rush the passer as well as stop the run from any of the four down-lineman spots is amazing. He made multiple highlight reel plays on the day, and he really seems to be putting everything together in his third year as a pro.


Game Ball

Greg Hardy gets this one. His three sacks and two forced fumbles were hard to ignore. The Chargers gained only 164 total yards and Hardy and the defensive line were a big reason why.

How odd is it to be reading this kind of praise about our d-line after 2+ years of torching the front office for not giving us a competitive front 4? Also, It's been really good to see Hardy rededicate himself and produce like all of us wanted him to. Good job to both hardy and CJ. Now lets put this all together at the beginning of the year and try to win this thing!

dare we say this line is shaping up to be as good as the line with Buckner/Rucker/Peppers?

Greg Hardy...one of the reasons I didn't want Coples. Thanks for coming through, Kraken.

"Mike Tolbert must have had payback on his mind returning to face his former team, because he ran as hard as he had all year. Rob Chudzinski dialed up Tolbert’s number nine times, the most he had all season, and the 245 pounder did not disappoint. His 45 snaps, 40 yards and two touchdowns were all season highs, and his 24 receiving yards gave him his season high for total yards as well. Since Jonathan Stewart went down, Tolbert has amassed a total grade of +5.8 in 3 weeks as the fifth-year back is warranting his increased playing time."

Good to hear. Just don't know what we are going to do with this logjam at RB...

What I love about Hardy is he always plays lights out regardless of our record. Plus he's fuggin crazy on gameday.

Going up against one of the best run defenses in the NFL, one may have thought this game was going to come down to Cam Newton’s arm. When Brad Nortman finally punted the ball away after an 8-plus-minute drive in the fourth quarter, it was clear that the Carolina offensive line won their matchup. The unit combined for a +8.8 run blocking grade, and all starting lineman graded positively except for Byron Bell. The last drive summed up their excellence as they gained three first downs when everyone in the stadium knew they were going to run. On the day, the offense ran the ball 39 times for 155 yards in a stellar performance

The Chargers had absolutely nothing going on down the field the whole game. Who to blame for this is hard to categorize, but certainly more than one person is at fault. The offensive line allowed Rivers to be pressured on 14 of his 31 drop-backs. The wide receivers weren’t beating coverage consistently, and check downs were the only routes consistently open. Rivers attempted only five passes over 10 yards down the field. All of these factors created a perfect storm where only one play all day went for longer than 15 yards. The Chargers were a far cry from their offense of the past few years


Have you seen who our starting secondary is? Pretty impressive if you ask me.

Poor Hurney. If the Panthers played like this all season, he'd still have a job.

I've said this before, and I'll say it agains. Hardy is our future pro bowl 3 technique DT, while FA holds down the RDE position.

I hope not, I like him right where he's at. Im worried that the ten he added to his frame is gonna seem like it was such a good idea that he might do it again at the cost of slowing him down.

He seems to be at the ideal weight/mass. Please Mr Kraken, dont change anything.

The future progression of Frank Alexander is going to force him inside anyways, which isn't a bad thing. He played half his snaps inside last week anyways.
