I think people forget how nasty and dominant our front 4 was in 2003.

Very true, but I believe this year's D-Line has the potential to be just as good.

 

The bad news is we could hide the deficiencies more in the secondary b/c the DB's were allowed a lot more contact in 2003 than they will be in 2013.  I remember many receivers that year (Marvin Harrison, Tory Holt, Eagles no-name group) complaining about how rough the Panthers DB's were (and not flagged).  But anyway, it was good coaching b/c it worked.  Ricky Manning Jr, would have never made the impact he did with his playing style into today's game.

 

I personally don't see our secondary today as much worse.  Really, outside of Deon Grant, no secondary player from that team had a lasting impact in the league.  But I think they have the possibility to get exposed a lot more.

We had the 1st and 2nd best DLinemen in the NFL IMO in Jenkins (1) and Pep (2)

Jenkins was an uncanny force until that shoulder injury and then his career went to hell, cheetos and frangelico

Yes very dynamic and on paper even better than 2003 Panthers' D line. The main sub back then for passing downs was just to bring in Al Wallace, right?


This line could be very good but let's not start comparing it to the 03' group. We haven't seen anything yet from Short or Star.

I really think Colin Cole can be our Shane Burton. Very solid rotation guy. It's all about the rotation. We have added 4 Dline weapons in the last 2 years. That really helps.

Dwan can still play too. He won't get as many snaps but he will wear down that line.

Superbowl?

 

Look our secondary is still mediocre and we have rookies starting. We could be badass but we could also still be rebuilding for yet another year.

Yeah but who played CB for us in 2003? Reggie Howard and Ricky Manning? We had guys like Ken Lucas and Chris Gamble in for years and did nothing with them. We will struggle in the secondary, but we don't need 11 pro bowlers to make the playoffs. We beat the Saints, Falcons, and Raiders by beating the poo out of their QBs. If we can keep a nasty rotation going our opponents will fear us.

At this point Star and Short could be the new McClain and Fua, or Sapp and Ngata. We really have no idea. I don't think Edwards is as good as a lot of fans seem to think. Hopefully our DTs will pan out and we can have a very good defense for the first time in years. 

 

I just want some aspect of this team to be exceptional. Defense, offense, special teams, just give me something. Right now it seems to me that the defense on paper might have the right pieces to be very good.

Not sure why we assume Luke is much of a pass rusher. Haven't seen much of his passing moves.
