It had a lot to do with QBs stepping right into him while trying to get away from CJ and Hardy.

I agree.

How long before Richardson throws a violent tantrum that results in Gettleman's termination because he realizes that he's going to have open up the checkbook for somebody?

MARTY WOULDN'T HAVE MADE ME DO THIS!!

Same could be said for some of the sacks that CJ and Hardy got was due to Dwan's push up the middle.

It's a fools game to evaluate a defensive line on one or two players. You have to look at the whole line as a unit (think back to how mediocre Peppers looked late in his career here due to not having any help on the inside or other side).

Dwan gave us a piece up the middle that allowed Hardy and Johnson to get off the edge better, and vice versa, Hardy and Johnson's speed and power off the edge allowed Dwan to collect some sacks up the middle.

I'm in the camp that if Dwan is resigned, I think we are good on the line and drafting a DT should not be a huge need in this draft. A starting front four of CJ, Dwan (rotational tackle), and Hardy is plenty good enough to be one of the better lines in the league.

Given the year he had I'd be shocked if he doesn't get more than $1.5 million offered to him. He was one of the top DTs in the league for sacks. I can see a team giving him 4-5 million easy.

not in this market.

teams just aren't paying much for any position with the exception of maybe WR and TE. the market is flooded with very little seperation in levels of talent and teams have very little to pay.

other years he might have gotten that, but not this year. it's just not going to happen.

the deal he's getting offered here is about as good as it's going to get from any team.

I don't disagree with that, I'm certain he causes some of there sacks but I'm fairly certain they caused all of his.... I want him back either way.

It would be awesome. Star could really be there at 14. If not, I also hope like hell that Floyd will be there. RIchardson is the name everyone is mocking to us as of now. Id be fine with Richardson if we can add a big body NT like a Sione Pouha.

If we cant retain Dwan, we're set to doom. Major failure. I am not going to go into the 2013 season with a rookie DT, Fua, and Kearse.

If you actually read the article, you can tell he is not coming back.

He doesn't want to take a paycut and he wants to win a Super Bowl.

He implied that the Panthers can do neither of that for him.

Move on

how dare he say were not able to win the super bowl. were right on the edge, we just need a couple of pieces and we'll be in the nfc championship for sure next year.

I actually agree on this as well,

If we go in with a rookie and god forbid Fua.... Our run defense will be the awful, If we can get Dwan I wouldn't mind Pouha.

I think we would still be able to get after the QB though....
