4. Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers have the third-ranked defense in the NFL, and a big part of that is the play of their secondary. Corners Josh Thomas and Captain Munnerlyn have proven to be elite tacklers at their position, and the Panthers have only allowed 68 points this season on pass plays, second-best in the NFL behind the Chiefs. (More on Kansas City to come.)


Lol. I had to post it.

They've played well overall but it has a lot more to do with the 7 guys in front of them. Good to see them, and the team, get some recognition.

Or maybe others know a little more than we go. We are quick to undervalue certain players on this team....LaFell, Captain, Godfrey, etc

Secondary is part of the reason....and RR's scheme.  Notice how USA complimented the secondaries tackling and not coverage.  I think we are the 2nd worst team in the NFL in allowing underneath pass completions......our guys are tackling well when keeping things in front of them.  Newton (ESPN) referenced this in his Double Coverage column.

 

The reason we suck against dink and dunk teams is RR's D gives that one aspect to teams.....we don't really try to stop it.

Not sure if serious.  Maybe it's just a coincidence, but our secondary started playing a lot better when he went out and Mitchell slid over to FS.

I believe Mitchell has vastly improved this secondary as a whole. The big test will be these dink and dunk type O's in our future.

 

It's going to be interesting to see how we respond to that. And yes Godfrey has proven to be garbage more often than not.

Josh Thomas and Captain are very good tackling CB's, unfortunately they're not elite cover guys.

Unfortunately and logically, if they're having to make tackles, that means they've likely allowed the receiver to catch the ball.....
