Asked how he came up with individual nicknames for "MonStrz Inc.'' -- a play on "Monsters, Inc.'' to hopefully avoid potential legal issues with the Disney Pixar animation: "I am really talented.''

 

On the player introduction dance he unveiled during Thursday's preseason finale: "I'm experimenting. That's just my hybrid engine mode.''

 

The potential is there. But so far Hardy has given nicknames only to the defensive front. In case you missed it, Hardy is known as "The Kraken."

The rest: DE Charles Johnson: Loch Ness; DT Dwan Edwards: Phoenix; DT Star Lotulelei: Hydra; DT Colin Cole: Big Predator; DE Mario Addison: Gargoyle; DE Frank Alexander: Leviathan; DT Kawann Short: Minotaur.

 

If you dig through his tweets, a must follow for Panthers fans, you'll find a picture of a Hardy T-shirt that says: "KEEP CALM and RELEASE THE KRAKEN.''

Disney owns ESPN and Monsters, Inc. Kinda surprised the editors let that part of the story stay in. Wonder how long before the Kraken gets a cease and desist letter from the Mouse House.

The better question is how long until Kraken shows up in a Marvel comics book,

It really is a weird situation right now with Pat Y still being the NFC South guy along with doing the team reporting for the Saints, Bucs, and Falcons with our new guy David Newton handling the Panthers.

 

I think the plan is to have separate guys also for the Saints & Falcons (just not hired yet) and Yaz will be the Bucs guy and still handle the NFC South blog.  Seems like a conflict of interest though.

 

I don't he is going to poo on the Bucs since he is their team reporter (and I bet little ole Yaz is scared of Greg Schiano).  And of course, the Saints & Falcons are his teams so he is going to poo on us.

 

Since they are going the route of having a guy cover every team, just think they should reassign Yaz and has someone else do the NFC South overall or hire a Bucs guy

We gotta lock this guy up.  I know Keek gets a lot of credit, but I feel like Hardy and his attitude was a huge reason for that defensive turnaround last year.  I don't know what the fug happened to him last year, but the light bulb came on big time.

 

I remember he was crying after the Chicago game and, while it sucked we lost, it was awesome to see how much he really cared to go along with his performance.  The dude just had the best game of his career, yet here he was crying because we couldn't seal the win.

 

He instantly became one of my favorite players after that... and it didn't hurt that he kept getting more and more vocal as the season went on.

 

If we lose this Hardy I'ma be pissed.  Players with his mix of talent, passion, and crazy don't come around very often.

Clock's ticking on that new deal. Other team's have the same idea, too, with Sean Lee and Brian Cushing getting extensions. Hope it's done before game time.

Im liking most of them and trying to not to feel cheezy about it. Seriously, he needs to make the logo a little cooler for the shirt. I want to buy one but the first draft didnt look Krakenified.

If he can continue his production he can become the next great personality in the NFL.

Obviously he is already a personality to us, I mean nationally

I love the Kraken
