I'm pisst

It MATTERS who starts. It's super-duper important.

You can't convince me otherwise.



You can't!

Norman will get plenty of PT as we run a nickel set as much as anything else.  Never been excited about Mikel(what he was a pro bowler like 5 years ago? maybe?) and Wharton is off a major injury last year.  Lastly, a depth chart on ESPN is about as relevant as my depth chart on Madden.

 

 

Spazz much OP?

This defense is considered a highly accountable defense. That means that everyone has a job to do and has  a certain place they must be on every play.  Players must  be where they are supposed to be or breakdowns occur.  This is not a defense you can pick up in a week or two.  The whole reason we are looking so good is because the players finally get it and it took quite a while.  Sure we have upgraded at DT and have most guys healthy which helps, but the reason we struggled last year was due to lapses and guys not being fundamentally sound.

 

Norman is a great physical corner and will find his niche. His issue is whether he will be a good zone defender to go along with his press coverage skills. He needs to be sound in all phases and at this point they like Thomas more.

This can change in a hurry though.

The only thing that is 100% certain on Sunday is that I will be cracking a beer at 8am in a gravel parking lot whilst firing up the grill and blasting Hall & Oates greatest hits.

that sounds like heaven.

This little ESPN nugget is off topic, but not quite threadworthy.

 

I give you, the ESPN NFC South standings!!

 

 
 
2013 NFC SOUTH STANDINGS: 
 
Atlanta
 
New Orleans
 
Tampa Bay
 
Carolina
 
 
 
Edit:  the graph doesn't transfer well, see it for yourself at http://espn.go.com/b...t-be-a-surprise

 

 

Awesome being in last place without playing a game yet.

2 of these players just joined the team.  Learning the playbook takes a few weeks and is not optional

Wharton is not in 'football shape' yet, per Person.

 

Mikell just got here.  He'll need to acclimate a little (though if Mitchell isn't able to go...)

 

Thomas is a decision, though I have a feeling CBs will rotate some.

I agree with Rivera's starters. Wharton and Mikell may start a few games from now after getting into football shape. Norman isn't quite as sound in coverage yet. He still leaves a cushion that Wilson would expose. Thomas won't be the defensive weakness I am more concerned about Captain out on an island.

@jjones9: FWIW #Panthers unofficial depth chart just released: Gross, Silatolu, Kalil, Williams, Bell, Newton, D Williams, Tolbert, Olsen, LaFell, 89

@jjones9: Defense: Johnson, Lotulelei, D Edwards, Hardy, Davis, Kuechly, Beason, Thomas, Munnerlyn, Mitchell and Godfrey

@jjones9: I added "unofficial" and "FWIW" because, well, just that. Plenty to shake out this week including CB, SS and LG
