Mr. Scot

Safety Philosophy

Is it worth the occasional personal foul penalty to have a safety who intimidates opposing receivers?

(and/or sometimes knocks them out)

Not in the modern NFL.

Well, that depends on the timing and frequency of those penalties.  :)

It worked for the Ravens last year. 

 

I don't have an answer though...

Not if it cost you first downs in key situations. Mitchell was lucky he didn't get one against T. Taylor and ill be the first to say it wasnt so much that it was a dirty hit. It was he stood over him and ran his mouth. He's a dirty player.

What's the point of having a safety who intimidates but doesn't do his job well?

If receivers actually fug up the catch as a result then yes Mr. Scot I take the tradeoff.

That's the heart of the question.

That's the heart of the question.

 

We can only judge it based on the entire sample size at this point.  MM hasn't proven that much.

Our Safeties philosophy appears to be 'stand and watch'

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
