Luke's popularity has blown the fug up since that game against the Ravens the other night.  Like seriously, I'm seeing it everywhere.

 

Amazing what a great... who am I kidding, DOMINANT performance on primetime does for you.

 

Seeing a lot of people calling him a possible all-time great, saying he's already better than Willis, etc. when just a couple of months ago all they could say was "Yeah, he's alright I guess but overrated... tackles are a misleading stat".

 

Glad the rest of the nation finally fuging seen him play.

Just interesting that the defense is already getting national attention and praise.

A year ago it was Cam Cam Cam. Now he is rarely mentioned.


Luke became a rockstar overnight. Before that game, Kuechly was overrated and Lee, Washington, Bowman, Cushing, David, Wagner, etc were all better than Keek. Now, Luke is a Top 3 LB (some already rank him number one) and will challenge JJ Watt for DPOY.

Imagine that.

Yep, I've been seeing it too... and I also saw all the Wagner, Lee, David, etc. dingbats (people who never even fuging saw Luke play) from not so long ago.  I've literally even seen people, non-Panther fans at that, say he's an all-time great talent at the Mike.  It's just funny to see how fast he went from overrated to potential all-time great after one game where people finally saw him play.

 

Not that I disagree or anything. B)

Just goes to show how nationally televised games play an important role in the media narrative.

We drafted 2 DT's in the 1st/2nd round to let Luke shine

 

When are we going to draft WR's and OL to let Cam shine?

I know, right?!

It just goes to show you that other fanbases don't know squat when arriving to our team. All that: "tackle stats are inflated... Luke only gets those by jumping on piles..." crap can finally be put to rest. The world got to see Luke dominate the entire first half.

I was shocked to see Raven fans compare him to Ray Lewis though. Prior to that game, it'd be blasphemy.

When are we going to draft WR's and OL to let Cam shine?

 

i've got this feeling it will be OL next year. OT in first and second.

 

i will say that if we start rookies on the OL next year, expect more really bad OL play for a year.

 

i'll also say we need vets, not newbs unless we're fine with waiting another year or two for cam to shine. rookies rarely don't look horrible when they see significant play time on the OL.i don't care how early they are drafted.

This is a good thing. All signs are pointing right now to our defense being legit as fug, with Luke and Star being two monsters in the company. With all this attention and criticism taken off of Cam, he can have some peace and quiet. Don't worry, once some serious investments are made into the offense this coming offseason, Cam will come back better than ever.

Some of that credit goes to Gruden as well, all media is on his nuts and like to agree with him just because he said so

They couldn't be worse than Bryon Bell. Alabama prospect, Cyrus Kouandjio is probably better than Byron Bell right now.

I want a legit WR in the first or second next year, BUT IM SO TIRED OF FIFTH AND SIXTH ROUND O-LINE SCRUBS. We need legit talent at so many positions on the O-Line.

 

I believe Gett Dawg will go O-Line with the first and second rounds next offseason. A Guard and a Tackle. We already have a precedent for double dipping at a position. I believe he will probably look to free agency for a real WR talent. Ginn was a STs pickup and Hixon was just another body to bring in.

Think of the beauty of all of this.  So, we become a defensive-oriented team with a dominant front seven.  Rivera gets the praise that by his third year, the team has an identity that coincides with his background.

 

Our offense begins to gel, and we implement a healthy balance of Cam Newton (read option/passing) with a running attack, and the season is full of promise.

 

Now, to take off the rose colored glasses, what the hell are we going to do about that dreadful offensive line.  They are offensive in every sense of the word.

i'm setting the bar a little hire than bell...definitely higher than "couldn't be worse".
