Hardy seems to have that ability to get multiple sacks in one game. Peppers had that ability, but he wasn't consistent. We always talked concerning Peppers, that if he had Smitty's heart, he would have been the best defensive player perhaps in NFL history. Hardy might not be as athletic as Pep, but he is a great DE in his own right, and he has that edge that earned him the title of "Kraken". With the ability to get multiple sacks from the DE position in a game, and with that attitude (along with CJ, Star, Short, and Dwan who's been kind of quite this year), he's going to put up monstrous numbers. I hope we can sign him long term.

All these stats are for defensive ends. In 2010 Johnson led the league in tackles, 4th in sacks, 3rd in quarterback hits, and 4th in tackle for loss. There was only a minimal difference between himself and the leader in each category.
Again this is only for defensive ends, this year Hardy is 17th in tackles, 6th in sacks, 16th in quarterback hits, and 11th in tackle for loss. It may look like Hardy isn't going to match those numbers but so far after three games in their contract years Hardy is having the better season.

PAY THAT MAN a reasonably appropriate salary based off performance and need
