The Panthers have allowed 1,265 yards after the catch. Only three teams have allowed less yards after the catch.

We can probably attribute that too the "bend but don't break" mentality where our corners play 8 yards off the receiver.

That and the machine they call Luuuuke.

Id agree. Norman is the king of not getting beat deep, and being right on time to make the tackle. AFTER THE CATCH. im glad he was benched

The Panthers are first in making its fans YACK at the end of games.

When Kuechly hits you, you stop.

To credit Sean McD, there was a stretch this season where we couldn't tackle anything. Guys breaking tackle after tackle against us for big gains. That certainly has been shored up this second half of the season. It may have just been an attitude adjustment when Kuechly took over the middle. Guys see a rookie come in and tackle any and everything, it probably makes them step their game up.

I agree that linebacker play has been key. I would also add that Davis has been a huge key as well. As the season progressed and his knee held up, he went from a situational role player to almost an every down guy.

Our tackling has improved, that's all that means IMO
