Really good read: The resurrection of Greg Hardy

36 posts in this topic

One of the most interesting stories this season has been the emergence of Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy. The man who calls himself “Kraken” has notched 11 sacks on the year along with two forced fumbles, and he’s one of the most colorful characters in the NFL. Before he went by the moniker Kraken, he was known simply as “DK”.

Most top defensive ends take about about two to three years to come in to their own.

I didn't realize he was on the cover of SI. Nice article.

Release the kraken!

Hardy is a beast. Simple and plain.

I noticed most of this when watching his college tape and reading up on him.

He's an incredible athlete. Thankfully for us something seems to have clicked for him.

“DK,” which was short for “African Warrior”

Or secretly Donkey Kong?

Projected as a first round guy at one point I think....fell like a rock from an injury and purported questionable work ethic...I wondered about him after the motorcycle wreck, but something has clicked inside during the past off-season. Some may not want to hear it, but I think Rivera awakened his desire to reach his full potential.

Love the article (though a 5-technique is a 3-4 end, not a 4-3 end). Hardy must've been really weird in interviews, because injury alone doesn't drop a guy six rounds. Luckily, it helped him get here.
