Captain Munnerlyn: It’s scary how good the Panthers defense can be

Last week, linebacker Thomas Davis said that the Panthers could be the best defense in the NFL.

He’s not the only member of the unit that feels that way. Cornerback Captain Munnerlyn thinks the return of linebacker Jon Beason and the addition of rookie defensive tackles Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short can push the Panthers defense to new heights this season.

 

“It’s going to be scary how good we can be. And I’m excited about this year. I feel like we can be the top defense in NFL football,” Munnerlyn said during an interview on WFNZ.

 

 

 

I'm very optimistic about the D, I'm not as worried about the secondary as many are.

 

I was optimistic about our DL last season and it turned out fine.

I really wish he would have kept the bit about best defense in football to himself.

A great D...if we're on the good end of the spectrum on injuries.

Yeah, I'm still wary, our secondary is terrible. Enough of boasting up our defense/offense and make it fucking happen. Actions speak louder than words.

Maybe he should buy an ad in the Observer.

I'm telling you people, this team will win at least 9 games next year. Can't guarantee that will get us in the playoffs though. One thing I'm sure of, I'm scared of no team in our division.

It's the off season. Let them talk.
I couldn't help but laugh, reading the comment section.

Every team talks during the off season.

I don't know what these people to expect him to say.... "yeah, we're gonna suck cause everybody says we will"

Why don't you and others learn to wait until football season before asking them to "make it fuging happen."

scary parallel.

 

 

I like the positive energy.

 

But I'd like to see them mad about the start out of the gate last year instead of hearing yet again about "potential".  

 

Focus and preparation seem more important for this team than confidence and talent.  It will be interesting to watch how team leaders on both sides of the ball and on the sideline step up to get these guys ready to play.

The Front 7 absolutely has the potential to be elite.  If the young guns in the seconday continue to improve, there is absolutely no reason to think that this D could be Top 5.

The team as a whole has a ton of potential and the overall talent to be in the playoffs/contend.  

 

Reaching the ceiling has and will be about finding consistency and not blowing the load in key moments.
