Just how good can Greg Hardy be?

54 posts in this topic

One more point about Hardy--due to our lack of a solid undertackle, Hardy moved inside often on passing downs, asked to collapse the pocket. He can edge rush, move inside, stand up--he is more valuable than people know. He will ask for a CJ contract after this season. Hey, if you are not going to pay top CBs, you better pay the top DL. I think we should try to lock him down very soon. Wait for 2013 and it will cost more.

I expect Hardy to get 15 sacks in 2013 because I expect our DT play to improve.

I imagine there are some 3-4 teams licking their chops for a player like Hardy. If Alexander steps up, and don't forget about Keiser who is coming along. we could have something to trade. I hope not, but we need to balance the talent--something Marty did not seem to understand.

This place cracks me up. If Hardy starts out slow this year, half of this forum will be calling for his head.

Yep.........I think he turned all the non-believers

He definitely turned me. At the beginning of the year I thought the guy was just a party guy not serious about being dominant in the pro game.

He was tweeting pics of full shot trays and we were all down about it. Then he showed up on Sundays and was on fire.... I have a lot of respect for his game and ability now.

Though impressive, it's not the stats that wow me regarding Hardy. It's his passion for the game. He has all the physical tools to be successful, a motor that won't quit, and a little crazy to go along with all that. Like some freaky mix of John Randle and Julius Peppers.

This.

He has God-given talent, plus a desire to succeed.

Some guys like Randy Moss and Julius Peppers have the talent to be the GOAT. But they have no desire.

Hardy has the potential to reach Jerry Rice or Reggie White status

I don't even know if it's a desire to succeed as much as a crazy mofo out there trying to knock someone's head off. He seems to genuinely enjoy the game of football and plays with a gladiator mentality. Luke shows the same passion, though not as crazy.

He did draw some White comparisons when he was at Ole Miss. I'm not gonna crown him after one season but he's a very talented, athletic and versatile DE. I still remember that Alabama game in which he practically dominated wherever he lined up (and the Tide had one of the best OLs in college football at the time).

Somebody doesn't know what "potential" means. Glad you chimed in so we all could know it's you.

Like I said, I wouldn't go all ape crap over his stats. It's the way he plays the game - a mean, crazy SOB that will knock your QB into oblivion if given half the chance. A crazy cat like that on the DL, plus a crazy cat like that at MLB (check with Luke), and a crazy cat like that at Safety (still looking for that one - man I miss Chris Harris) makes you dangerous at all levels on defense.
