This threads as good as me coming up with one saying certain flavors of cheese-its excite me. This is the most exciting season to be a panther fan since who knows. We have a new GM, new stack of DTs which are gonna help out our already league best 4-3 DEs. The whole secondary is a "?" Which should entail excitement. Id love to see a star born in Norman, Thomas, Mitchell, Campbell, etc.. Seeing those dirty LBs do what they want and stay healthy, exciting.

The fact that we're not running read plays as our primary offense is exciting. Ok Cams 'new toy out of the box' effect is gone but if a more reliable, smart Cam doesn't make ya smile, I dunno what does. Stews exciting. If not, dwills exciting, if not hell we have a firecracker of our own in Barner who I know is exciting.

It doesn't matter what players excite ya, the new dynamic and culture around here should be what does it for ya. Seeing our cap being worked masterfully excites me. Seeing Greg Hardys will to improve and be extra motivated and then hop on the huddle excites me. Smile a little more bro, I know its only June but the exciting times are comin!

Enough of this Peppers bullshit you keep bringing up, it seems like you're fixated on riling someone up about a player that doesn't even play for us.


Meh, just talking about judging OUR players the same. So if when Peppers was here his play was inconstant and knocked......why can't and shouldn't we expect better from CJ. His contract sets a very high bar.....I don't think he meet that bar in 2012. Nothing more.

Was that the season Peppers got 2.5 sacks total or what??
 
Sacks are not a great indicator of the pressure a DE generates.  Pressures and Hurries are a better way of evaluating their effectiveness.  If a QB throws the ball away there is no sack but the play is effectively over.


...that one AND the two after it.

2008 and 2009...his last 2 Peppers had more sacks, FF, INTs, tackles, etc than Johnson's last 2 seasons.

Johnson's bar is high bc of the huge contract.

anybody who's not excited about the offense should be forced to watch every snap in 2009 and 2010

 

Everyday, all day, until the beggining of training camp. And then write a 10,000 word essay on how excited they are to watch Edmund Kugbila ride the stationary bike for 3 hours.

Stats tell you what you want them to.  Peppers last three years here resulted in 27.5  sacks, 13 FFs, 3 INTs and 106 solo tackles.  Johnson had 33 sacks, 9 FF, 0 INTS, and 111 solo tackles.

 

Peppers had 37 hurries in 2012 and Johnson had 50.  BTW- Peppers had a bigger cap hit his last 3 years versus Johnson despite Johnson's contract.

 

This is fun.  Too bad none of those numbers mean squat really. Who cares what numbers Peppers had in the past versus Johnson now.

If that's all you are excited about maybe it's time you find a new team.

We have two new young DTs

Cam coming of the best first two seasons as a qb in nfl history

Beason coming back

Shula taking over as OC

Chud is gone

A new return man in Ted Ginn something we have been lacking for some time.

Josh Norman's progression

Armanti might finally be getting it

Amini's second season

Chud is gone

Ron Rivera's growth as a coach

Gettleman managing the team for his first season

Chud is gone

I mean there is a lot to be excited about with this football team other than Luke, CJ, and Hardy.

 

Um why in the hell would shula taking over as OC excite anyone??!?

 

Scares the poo out of me!

CJ still had 10 games without a sack...Peppers was vilified for such

 

For me and a lot of other people, Peppers was an effort issue not a numbers issue.  It's plain to everyone that has ever seen him that Peppers is likely the most athletically gifted DE to play the game.  Peppers made plays that no one including Charles Johnson could make.  He was faster than most LB's and a vast majority of running backs.  He had the wingspan of a 747, he was strong as any DE in the league.  This is what made and still makes people shake their heads.  Charles Johnson shows consistent effort, and has comparable if not better numbers than Peppers. The problem is Charles Johnson is 80% of the athlete Julius Peppers is.   I am and will always be a Julius Peppers fan, however his lack of effort in certain games especially with his talent makes him disappointing sometimes.

Every fan should be excited about his team in the offseason. That's what falling in love with a team does. Sometimes it dissapoints or hurts you, sometimes it puts your head in the clouds. Whatever it does, you just don't bail out on it.
