Ted Ginn joins the Panthers on a one-year deal

Patrick Willis, Vilma, Lofton.

Willis was faster during the combine and is faster than Luke. Vilma had a slower 40 and lower vertical leap than Luke.

You seriously believe Curtis Lofton is an elite coverage LBer? Every Falcons and Saints fan would disagree. He is solely good at stopping the run and a HUGE liability in coverage.

RECENT NEWS

Panthers signed WR/KR Ted Ginn, formerly of the 49ers, to a one-year contract.

Ginn also drew interest from the Bengals. His main contributions will be in the return game, replacing former third-round bust Armanti Edwards. The Panthers' receiving depth chart still doesn't bring much to the table beyond Steve Smith and Brandon LaFell, so Ginn could challenge for third-wideout snaps. Ginn, who turns 28 next month, averaged 10.2 yards on 32 punt returns in 2012. Mar 21 - 5:10 PM

Putting Ginn in on those end-arounds that usually go to Lafell will be magic.

The LaFell end arounds are surprisingly effective because the defense falls asleep watching him run so damn slow. I truly love it and laugh.

LMAO...... Lofton.... Seriously.

Wow. You lost your argument for just using Lofton in a debate about NFL coverage linebackers.

You actually probably picked the worst coverage linebacker in the NFL with Lofton and putting him ahead of Kuechly in pass coverage tells me you either don't watch football or simply just don't understand it.

Here's Kuechly's draft profile from a credible site..... lmao BR....

http://www.nfl.com/d...chly?id=2533056

STRENGTHS

Kuechly is one of the most instinctual and technically sound linebackers to enter the draft in years, and he had the tackle production throughout his career to back it up. He is able to avoid trash at his knees and is elite when it comes to shedding blockers and keeping himself free to the ball. He is excellent working over the top of tight ends to maul and delay their release, and is capable of running with them down the field. He has the sudden burst and long speed to cover a very wide range against the run and is an extremely sure-handed tackler.

Patrick Willis, Vilma, Lofton.

You're citing two of three linebackers on the worst defense in NFL history as examples of the elite?

Seriously? :unsure:

Been awhile since I've seen this much fail on the interweb and that's saying a lot.

Kuechly was said to be by many respected analysts to be one of the best coverage LBs to come out of college in years.

Kuechly plays a LOT faster than his 40 time.

That's what instincts will do for you. Running in the 4.5s is no joke for a LB already. But, when you combine good instincts with 4.5 speed, you get a blazing fast LB.
