Honestly am I the only one way more excited about our defense than our offense?

People seem to forget we had a top 10 defense on paper at the end of the season. That's with some scrubs in the secondary as well. We have the best 4-3 DE tandem in the league and when healthy a top 5 4-3 LB core. We really just need a dominant DT, starting CB and a maybe another starting S. I'm fuging pumped for our defense what say you?!

Also even though this is a bleacher report article and he made some questionable calls on a few spots we have 3 DEs in the top 50. Goes by overall stats when on field.

that's the Kuechly effect....

Honestly I'm really excited about both sides of the ball.

For sure. I was even reading the comments and people seemed to know who CJ & Hardy were. Said certain players on our defense were snubbed from the pro-bowl.

You are not the only one maine. I envision Keek all over the field making plays and our DEs allowing our secondary to play over their heads. That last week we balled against some pretty effective offenses. We are a couple of players away.

I had never been excited to really watch a defense until Kuechly. Even last preseason I was more pumped when they were coming on the field because I felt he was special.

I couldn't agree more - it's like my old coach used to say "offense sells tickets, defense wins games."

I could never understand why people opposed drafting Keek - he has the highest football IQ and instincts of anyone in the game. As long as Keek is our MLB, our defense will be dominant for the next decade.

*btw: really excited about Frank Alexander, we definitely made out with a steal...

Most folks that were opposed to drafting him were opposed to it because we had $100MM+ invested in linebackers already, with a pro bowl MLB making $54MM already on the roster. Has little to do with his talent or football acumen. And it was a logical thought process at the time, despite being clearly wrong now in hindsight.

If we get a nice stud Nose Tackle that can hold the point of attack I will be excited. Getting gashed by mediocre running backs really got under my skin last year.

Rookie of the year two years in a row on both sides of the ball. I'm pretty psyched for the team in general and can't wait for the season to start.
