Ron Rivera has done a lot of work with Hardy mentally. There were points in 2011 that he was pulled out of games and severely underperforming. I think the concerns that let him fall so far in the draft were valid, and I think on a lot of teams without a figure like Rivera he would be struggling and lacking motivation.

Mostly injuries.

But with that said, take a minute and imagine the average NFL scout / personnel guy sitting down and interviewing "The Kraken".

How do ya think that scene plays out? :unsure:

" 1) Greg Hardy/DE/Mississippi: Hardy gave serious consideration to entering April's draft but made the right choice staying in school. He's impacts the game in a variety of ways and possesses unlimited potential.

 

 

Look at how much money that cost him!!!

I gotta feeling his chance to make up for it is coming fairly soon.

It was his destiny to fall to Carolina and make everyone forget about Julius Peppers.

he had a bad foot in his junior season and only played 8 games. the coaches wanted him to play injured. he didn't. that's essentially it.

plus he's a bit of an oddball and marches to his own beat. some thought that this would be a big problem.

Yeah, it you follow him on fb and Twitter that might be a slight understatement.. He's pretty out there, but I think that serves him well on the field.

Injury, motor/work ethic and character concerns.

 

The crazy thing is that Hardy was considered worthy of being taken #1 overall. He certainly played like a Top 10 DE last year after all. He's not an athletic freak like Peppers but Greg is still a terror once the ball is snapped.

He had character concerns and tbh they have shown a few times. He's a ticking time bomb. So far he's only blown up Drew Brees and Matt Ryan.

    • I hope not because I wouldn't have a clue how to pronounce his name. Is that an L or an I? 
    • I would love Tarik, balled out at my alma mater. Would be great for him to be a panther.  
    • some people are assholes for their own benefit. like yeah i believe you were a bowtie boy and i believe you logic'd yourself into affirmative action bake sales and such but to me there is a fundamental difference between a person who is just wrong and a person who harbors terrible beliefs from which they stand to gain. yeah i ridicule both but imo there's being a smug dork calling for an end to minimum wage and there's literally blaming victims of rape for their rape. i would leave my sister/wife/daughter in a room with college republicans because like what are they gonna do, impose a flat tax on them? but the type of person who says "well what did she expect? men have their hormones you know..." is someone who has probably had some uh...questionable sexual encounters. and yeah i know you tried to draw a parallel between yourself and arsen wrt the specific topic at hand but it seems like you were trolling and dumb whereas this dude's literally going into biological justifications for rape. convert the willing sure but nothing he has posted leads me to believe he is willing.
