Greg Hardy seeks 50 sacks in Carolina Panthers' D (NFL.com)

Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy is no stranger to outlandish statements or crazy predictions. Not about to allow contract wishes to distract him from a "dominant" season, Hardy has set a lofty goal of 50 sacks this season.

 

"Why shoot low, right? If I'm going to shoot at it ... I'm going to shoot at a little bird with a 50-caliber bullet," Hardy said, via The Associated Press. "That's the goal for this year, 50 sacks, that's where I'm at."

 

With the addition of rookie defensive tackles Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short, Hardy has dubbed the Panthers' defensive line "Monsters Inc." Hardy already had coined himself the Kraken last year. Bookend pass rusher Charles Johnson has now been labeled the Loch Ness Monster.

 

"This year, it's complete domination, savage, ruthless, disgusting all-out Kraken-type stuff," Hardy said. "Except it's going to spread. I'm tired of having to stick up for everybody. We're about to come out with a nasty attitude. It's going to be monstrous."

 

Although Hardy raised speculation that he could hold out after skipping organized team activities, he insisted Tuesday that he will report to training camp on time. Even if he manages just a quarter of his sacks goal in 2013, he will be a candidate for the Panthers' franchise tag next offseason.

Title: Greg Hardy seeks 50 sacks in Carolina Panthers' D

 
Responses:
This dude is a clown for making this statement...but then again, Panthers fans are stupid enough to believe it is actually possible for one player to get 50 sacks. Dont try telling them that nobody has ever recorded even half that many in one season. That's history and logic...two things Panther fans are not familiar with.
 
This dude is on crack, the whole defense ask a team maybe but him say no to drugs.

 

He should set a more realistic goal than 50, like 12...a benchmark he's never reached. LMAO, moron.
 
So absurd. People can't read. Not even a title.

It looks to read that he is setting that goal for himself. He is setting it so high to avoid having too low expectations of himself

Like they say, "Aim for the moon, that way if you miss, at least you land among the stars.".

It was a pretty dumb statement and as expected was based by many.

We would be bashing any player on another team who made a similar statement.

First Kalil last year with the newspaper ad and now thus.

We have won 6 and 7 games the past two seasons. Given that, I would prefer that our guys keep quiet and go about their business.

I would not want Cam or Luke or Jon making such a crazy statement. I like it coming from Kraken though. He is the Ric Flair of the Panthers. Whoooiooo

It certainly matches his personality.

Hey, whatever it takes to keep him motivated.

Ryan Kalil, on the other hand, will only be reading the Observer this offseason

Yeh, I didn't like that kalil did that. It put pressure on the team. However, hardy didn't say he would get 50. He said thats the goal.

Also, I wouldn't be bashin someone else for makin the same statement. Granted, i might laugh, but having a high goal isnt bad. I mean it sounds crazy, but maybe that's what we need......

I remember the last Panthers defensive lineman to predict the unit was going to break the sack record.

 

It was Eric Swann.

It wasn't a dumb statement at all. We should be happy that our players are showing some swag and confidence instead of this tow the JR line for Harris Teeter discount BS.

 

Whether the team wins or not has nothing to do with setting goals and being vocal about it.

Agree 100%.

 

But, you can understand why other team's fans are posting poo in the comment section.  It is kind of an absurd comment to make.....but it does fit his personality.

It't such an absurd statement that I can't believe people would even try to make it into any kind of issue. 

 

NFL fans are such drama queens, that is the only thing I take from this story.

Yeah no shit. I took it from the title alone as the Defense in whole would have 50 sacks on the season. Not Hardy alone.

But, we would be saying how stupid and ridiculous this is if another team's player said it.  So, we should not really be surprised.

Oh, I'm sure people here would. I'm just speaking on behalf of myself. I think most people here are drama queen as well.

If other former defensive ends on our team who now play in Chicago had half this guys motivation, desire and motor they would have been guaranteed first ballot hall of famers and already legends while still finishing out their career. This dude is starting to really come into his own as a player and developing one hell of a nasty attitude. I hope he infects everyone around him and sends that defense into attack dog mode. I see a future defensive leader in him and I hope they lock this guy up to a long term deal soon. I would not let him out of town if I were management as I feel like they have something special in him and just last year began to shine through as his time seems to be coming and coming on strong.
