Am I the only Panther fan that would sign Hakeem Nicks over Hardy?

Since when did one good year turn you in to a premier pass rusher?

 

One good year? Statistically yes, but anyone who watched him could see he had a knack for it. With what he's shown in just the last two years yes, I think you could call him a premier pass rusher.

I think what you can say if anything is that up until last year his potential wasn't showing up on the field.

Good pass rusher>Good WR. I would rather draft a WR anyway. Plus Nicks is made of glass.

Not consistently at least. He had some flashes that showed just how good he could be. The biggest thing he did was shore up his run assignment and discipline.

If Hardy has another good year, you don't let good pass rushing DEs leave unless they want unreasonable $.

Hardy played with a broken hand last year. Nicks has been dealing with foot and ankle injuries. Nicks is a safer bet from character concerns. But I think the Panthers feed off our bad boy.

Big difference; 2 DEs start, opposed to 1 RB...

What character issues has Hardy ever exhibited?

comparing hardy to stewart fails because having two elite defensive ends is much more important than having two elite runningbacks.

 

hardy also has more years of productivity left than nicks, and i would argue a higher overall ceiling. i'd much rather keep hardy and draft a first round receiver next spring.

It doesn't matter what any of us think. What does matter is what Gettleman thinks: and I guarantee you he is looking to build a stout defensive line.

 

 

Next year could look a lot different in terms of cap space: D-Will, Godfrey, Beason, and even Jordan Gross could be looking at the axe. 

 

I'm not saying they should be cut, but if they all have bad seasons...

As long as he can stay healthy I would love Nicks but with the money he is going to command I think we would be better off drafting Smittys replacement.  I would wait to reserve judgement on Hardy till after this year, he really does not have much of a track record yet.

You might not be the only one, but I would assume that you are one of the few.
