For once Adam Schein gave the Panthers some love... 

 

In compiling this Schein Nine on the most indispensable defensive players, I took into account pure domination, impact on the team, the overall defensive unit and the standings.

 

8) Luke Kuechly, LB, Carolina Panthers: I think this cat is a star. I thought he was the best defensive player in the 2012 NFL Draft and voted for him as Defensive Rookie of the Year (an honor he ran away with). The former Boston College icon became the rock of the Panthers defense.

 

Kuechly is not only a true tackler, he's an indispensable leader. He is on my short list of players I would build by defense around.

 

Complete List

1. Geno Atkins

2. Brian Cushing

3. Von Miller

4. Justin Smith

5. Richard Sherman

6. Jason Pierre-Paul

7. Vince Wilfork

8. Luke Kuechly

9. Daryl Washington

 

Just Missed The Cut

Haloti Ngata

Cameron Wake

Jared Allen

DeMarcus Ware

NaVorro Bowman

Ndamukong Suh

Clay Matthews

Sean Weatherspoon

Darrelle Revis

Schein is saying the Kuechly is a true tackler, he just phrased it incorrectly. If you use "not only" is should usually be followed by "but also".

Ahhh.. For some reason my eyes didn't pick up the "only" in front of not hahaha.... I guess I'm just expecting bad things since the last Schein article (shrugs)

Excellent list. Geno Atkins was a tremendous steal in the 4th round.

Yeah, I have no clue how J.J. Watt wasn't included... that was one of the first things I noticed.  He's without a doubt one of the most dominant defensive forces in the league right now, and just put together like the best season by a defensive player in NFL history.

Excellent list? Surely you jest.

 

Cameron Wake is Miami's entire pass rush. JJ Watt had an all time great season. McCoy is critical to TB's defense.

 

Only Atkins, Miller, JPP and Wilfork are sure locks in this type of list.

J.J Watt didn't even make the second list? I thought he was going to be #1 on this list.

Schein can eat a bowl of Richard Simmons' man-meat as far as I'm concerned.

Well, Schein is basically paid to troll fanbases. Looks like it's Texan fans' turn.
