Our D-line...

Wow dude just wow

EXACTLY

With Star, Short, CJ and Hardy.. Who do you single block? Unless you bring in your tight end and a back which now limits the number of receivers. That still doesn't cover everyone.

This is going to be fun to watch.. I am sure that Saints, Falcons and Bucs are not looking at this as a serious threat. It is gonna be great to see.

What is going to be a bigger WOW factor is McDerrmott will have a stable of talent on defense. I remember his defense in 2009 game one. His defense tore Jake a new one. That Philly D was awesome. I expect to see alot more of that type of scary defense then the two previous years.

It's still going to take time. People expecting a great team this upcoming season are going to be sorely disappointed. This is a multi-year process and Gettleman knows it.


Great Defenses are built over the years. This defense has really come along. We are only adding two players to a top 10 defense from last year. This team was able to be top 10 with average to above average
DTs. The new Players are young, aggressive and better than all but one of our current DTs.

Our DC will be at the helm for year three and I believe you are going to see a far more aggressive Defense than in the past two seasons.

Don't be surprised if this is a top 5 defense.

Don't forget Dwan and Alexander. We now have the capability to keep EVERYONE fresh. That will be huge in the fourth Quarter, and late in games.

 

I have been thinking about this for a while. With the depth we have in the front 7, what kind of games and schemes can Rivera and McD come up with? This is must see stuff I tell ya what.

I agree. In the past McD and Rivera had to hold back. This season I see this defense reminding me of the days of Salt and Pepper and the days of Jack Del Rio's defense.

Just wana make point..

Even if Rivera doesnt work out this year, we still got Gettleman.

Give this guy some more time and he will build this defense up to be great..
Once he gets free of some cap burdens and a few more years of draft picks, i really like where we are headed!

Ordinarilty, I would agree with your third years the charm thought. My thinking is, we have the potential to have 6 or so guys in there first or second year. Hopefully, They can catch up quickly. Because the sooner they can make an impact. The better year we will have.

 

I have high expectations, and my giddy is at historic levels. All because of Star and Short. Our front seven is going to be something to watch.

 

I don't have a prediction on where this D will finish. But it is going to be good.

How is getting pressure on the QB old school? Look at the best CBs, they all had lines that generated pressure.

Let’s not forget that having above-average backup linemen and linebackers in the rotation will allow everyone to stay fresh. This will translate to getting off the field quicker, and as the game wears on, they will get stronger.

All of this will add up to a time of possession advantage that will wind and wear down the opposition. This will be immensely beneficial for a defense that has been prone to fourth-quarter collapses. Of the 19 losses in the Cam Newton/Ron Rivera era, nine times Carolina was leading in the fourth quarter and once more they were tied.

 

 

This. Almost half our losses have involved defensive meltdowns late in the game.  It'll be so much better to not have that terrible wrenching, rock feeling in my gut when it's our defense on the field at the end of the game.

you can have a good pass defense with a solid pass rush and a shut down run game even if you have a bad secondary.

 

if you have a stud or two in the secondary but a weak DL that can't generate much pressure and can't stop the run, your pass D is probably going to suck.

 

it doesn't matter what school you go to, that doesn't change.
