Oh man, can you imagine us in the 3-4 with Dwan, Star, Short, CJ and Hardy all rushing the passer? That's going to wreck some QBs.

Let me put it this way. I would hope that when a situation comes up in a game where the lineup I have mentioned would be the best defense for what the opposing offense is likely to run, I HOPE the Panthers coaches are creative enough to realize this and put that lineup in.
Creativity is now a requirement for teams to succeed. If the offenses in the NFL can show new twists (and we know what kind of offenses I meanwithout having to type the words read or option, right?) then defenses are going to start having to be creative, too.
I personally am excited to see what will develop for the Panthers D this year. I REALLY hope it's the dawn of a revolutionary new defense like the zone blitz or Tampa-2.

Was Applewhite's injury a career stopper? Not sure why we haven't entertained bringing him back for similar money to what he was making.
