Anyone got access to a site that shows snaps played. Luke I believe racked up his numbers on a good fewer snaps/chances

Also have to remember Luke wasn't playing his natural position for the first four weeks of the season.

I don't understand why you guys thirst for recognition from the media. American football fans are some of the most informed and dedicated fanbases in the world. When I talk to fans in other cities they know our good players. They know Kuechly, Beason, Steve, Stew, Deangelo, and Greg. Just because the media doesn't talk about us doesn't mean our good players go unnoticed. The only rewards I care about are Division, Conference, and League Championships. DROY looks nice on paper but it's also thin as paper.

I like Luke. He's becoming my favorite Panther but Wagner's team has been in the news all season. They are relevant. I know many of you hate to hear this but winning actually means something to some voters, right or wrong.

No problem with Wagner getting it honestly. Dude is on a great defense with a ton of guys who can make plays, yet he ended up with more sacks and picks than Kuechly, and only two dozen less tackles, which is a lot, but it's not THAT much.

Plus Seattle is one of the teams to beat in the postseason and they have had an incredible defense this year, which Wagner was a big part of.

I want Kuechly to win, I think he should win, but it's much closer than a lot of you think it should be.

I would have a problem with Hayward winning it though...

I like Collinsworth. But he has it wrong here.

Your butts, stop letting them get hurt.

Who cares about one man's opinion on the matter.

Luke is our best D player. That's ALL that matters.

While I think Luke is the DROTY, Collingsworth taking Wagner over him is not so egregious for me to ridicule him.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
